Ain't it humorous to watch all these Right Wing Wackos who slurp up all those benefits created with the blood and sweat of union workers, tell us all how bad unions are.
They love the 40 hour work week, overtime pay, vacations, family leave, minimum wage, safe working conditions, Social Security, Medicare, and the hundreds other benefits that allow them to live decent lives:
Then whine like little girls whenever some worker somewhere has a benefit they don't.
It's fine with these buffoons if some guy inherits billions and pays no taxes - but God forbid that some cop has a pension.
As the unions die, and the working class becomes more and more simply serfs to the ruling class, they'll continue to tell us how bad unions are, while they live in their cardboard boxes begging Romney for the chance to pilfer his garbage can for a chance to feed their kids.
And still they'll never learn.
Ah well... My pension check arrived last week with a nice COLA raise - thanks F.O.P.
If your beloved unions are so great, why is membership in the private sector below 7%?

Come on now republicans we got almost 4 more years to run and most of you are already flipping out. How does it feel? Now you know what all of us had to go thru when your lord and master bush was tearing up our country. Atleast this president is getting some money back to the people and not just the corporate wealthy. You all are a Curse and a Shame to our country and most of us non-republicans are'nt leeberrals.
Yeah? How much and where is that money that this president has gotten back to the people? I'm very interesting in that statement. I've not read anything about that. Now, I've heard about lower pay checks and higher cost to medical coverage. So, please clue us in.

Your last sentence is proof of your hatred for all who don't believe your lies. Suits me. You are typical low information.

People give in different ways. How could you possibly put "giving" into a republican or democrat category? People are people.
You're absolutely right that "giving" cannot be put into a Republican or Democrat category. However, study after study (that have been referenced many times on here) shows that those who categorize themselves as Republican or conservative consistently give more to charities both in terms of money and in volunteering their time. Repub/conservatives consider charitable giving to be a personal responsibility and act accordingly. Democrats typically define their charitable giving by how much they can make OTHER people pay through their taxes - BIG difference.

Now see there folks what I been saying about these hardcore republicans? There's Angie, Synergy, Bill from somewhere, and a few others. They never apologize to the rest of the voting population about allowing their putrid piece of human feces in the form of a man, named bush, who caused permenate damage to our country. They want us all to zero in on some serious temporary matters, like IRS, Benghazi, and picking on their piss (tea) party. Now these should be addressed but 1 trillion and counting in Iraq, allowing their golden calves(Rich) to get unequal advantage in tax breaks, huge over expenditures in the defence industry, Patriot Act which was the greatest threat to privacy. I have no respect nor do I consider them nothing less than weirdos, terrorists to our own people and quite frankly like those with AIDS or any other highly contagious diseases those to whom I would not want any contact with. Their party is falling apart as well as most if not all of them. Let's just never forget bush nor these oddballs come next election. The other side is not much choice but let us never again return to the bush era.

You might recall that your original statement was that none of the failed to pass gun laws would have stopped the Sandy Hook shooting, and this is certainly true since we can undo the past. But laws are written to curtail future behavior.
Since you brought up automobiles let's look at some of the laws that curtailed future behavior or mitigated damage from auto accidents.
Drunk driving laws were strengthened and blood alcohol threshold has been lowered which has reduced the number of deaths from drunk drives behind the wheel. It is now not only irresponsible to drink and drive, but also socially unacceptable.
Safety features have been added to cars, some voluntary, some mandatory, that have reduced the level of injury and deaths from auto accidents. Did people still die from lack of seat belts, sure, but eventually the majority of those cars were replaced thru attrition.
None of these laws had the slightest impact on events in the past, but all had an impact on events in the future.
Your comparison is a poor one. Drunk driving has always been illegal, the problem was (as you alluded to) more of a societal wink-wink, nudge-nudge when it came to actually punishing those who got caught. Juries tended to take the "there but for the grace of God go I" and let the drivers off. We can thank organizations like MADD for helping make people aware that those who broke the law needed to be treated as though they broke the law and these changing attitudes also led to the lower thresholds and stronger laws you mentioned.

And again, the laws that the Left tried to pass by shamelessly using the children of Sandy Hook as political cudgels, would have made NO difference in the Sandy Hook shooting. If you look at the most recent mass shootings, the problem appears to be one of mental health - none of the proposed gun laws have addressed this issue - and given that the current climate prefers to err on the side of the rights of the mentally ill versus the rights of the community,(I am not making a judgement here, simply stating a fact) I don't see that changing anytime soon. But the whole situation of public mass shooting needs to be put in perspective. Even one shooting that kills one victim is a tragedy, but the coverage of each one would make one think we are all in imminent danger of being a victim.

According to a Congressional Research Service Report released a few months ago, the actual number of public mass shootings since 1983 stands at 78 - and those shootings claimed 547 lives. Public mass shootings being defined as: an incident involving four or more deaths and involving a gunman who selects victims somewhat indiscriminately. As precious as each of those lives are, 3 times more Americans have been killed by lightning in that same time period.

As the Daily Beast's Megan McCardle noted in December 2013, "It is beyond horrible to suggest that even a small number of attacks are largely unavoidable. I don't like saying it. Unfortunately, I think it's true." More laws are not going to change that, they will simply make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to "keep and bear arms" while doing nothing about those who are already more than willing to break any laws in order to get whatever firearms they wish to have.

<quoted text>Good comment, but good luck getting any sense out of these republicans. The only problem with giving to the Red Cross is that these vultures are known to come in during times of tragedy, then collect millions from donors, yet very little of the money gets to the source. Look at Haiti and New Orleans, they collected millions from donors but why did so little get to the intended people. In the 1990's they were paying Bob Dole's wife 400,000 dollars a year to be their leader. I don't know how much they pay their top CEO's now but this is suppose to be a Non-Profit organization.
Why are you on topix while your fellow Oklahomans are in need of help.
Get of your azz and go to Moore and help them instead of bi*ching about the red cross.

Not that I disagree, but you can't be 100% sure, nor can you know for sure, unless you can predict the future. But, as you've indicated before, you're omnipotent and can tell the future...

They are "objectivists" or pseudo 'objectivists'- They may not admit it but they take their whole meme from Rand and her sophomoric novel Atlas Shrugged. They worship greed. Funny thing is that even the religious fundamentalists among them idolize Rand. She hated them and they still cling to the leftover remnants of a cult that never had any credence from the get go. They are few in number and think that being loud suffices for being correct. They see the world in black and white,'takers' and 'makers'. They are a dwindling and pitiful lot. Their modern heros are little more than clowns. Bachman, Palin, beck, Santorum, Paul etc.
