As a boy, I lived on a farm. We lived there because we farmed the land, not because we didn't appreciate modern conveniences. We didn't have running water. That meant we had to use an outhouse. A bath meant we had to get water from the well, and heat it on our wood burning stove. Did we like it? No.
Without the roads we wouldn't have been able to get our crops to market.(Thank that crazy liberal Eisenhower for the interstate system, which now provides your livelihood.)
We were very grateful for electricity and the telephone (neither of which we could have afforded if we had to string our own lines.) When there were emergencies, the telephone was often a life saver(literally.) I'm glad that the folks in government back then didn't share your ideas about rural life.
Who said anything about roads? Roads are in the constitution, phones are not.

My father grew up the same way: no running water, no natural gas, no electricity. Not once have I ever heard him say he wished government would have taken other people's money and give it to them so they could have had a more comfortable life.

And what were you doing on a farm as a boy? Was it your parents farm? If so, it was they that decided to give you that kind of life. We have no choice of what kind of life we wish to have until we reach the age of 18 and then make our own decisions.

I'm sure there are plenty of Amish kids who grew up with less than you. Many continue the order but others leave.

It's amazing how people survive without the federal government. Until the nanny state came along, it's a wonder how we didn't become extinct.

It must be wonderful to have your psychic powers!(And very helpful to justify what you already believe.)
Nah. Just take a ride through the ghetto sometime. You'll see all these people walking around with one hand on their Obama phone and the other on a paper bag wrapped bottle. Or for example the tenants I just evicted. One large dog, three cats, a physically abled bodied person that didn't work and their Obama phone. This is not to mention their $250.00 per month in food stamps.

Yeah, they begged me not to kick them out, but they got too behind in rent. I told them that I only give breaks to people that try. I suggested they get rid of the animals so they have four less mouths to feed, get rid of the cable and high speed internet, have the woman get a part-time job on the weekend to increase their household income, quit supporting their 15 year old daughters cigarette habit, or perhaps quit smoking themselves, but that was way too much to ask an Obama phone family. Tomorrow, I have to take a second day off of work to attend court thanks to these lowlifes. They were evicted on the 14th and I'm still trying to put the place back together. The woman told me she couldn't get a job for extra income because it would threaten her food stamps.

When it comes to going around the block, you have five blocks to catch up with me. Before I became a truck driver, I used to deliver and repair home medical equipment. I know how the so-called poor live. I've been in their homes thousands of times given that I spent ten years in the business. I know how these people live. I had a HUD house right next door. One tenant used to keep her windows open all winter long. Why not? She didn't pay for her own heat.

Don't tell me or any working man in these parts about your corporate fetch boy Tea Bagger "job creators have it so rough" bullsh1t because American workers and voters have made it very clear to you and your 30% approval rating that they aren't buying it.
Sure they are. Just look at DumBama's ratings. Sinking every week.

I bet you didn't know that the price to hire temporary workers includes the cost of what it takes to have those people work for that service. It's just like your employer. He or she as to deduct what it costs to support your benefits before they can come to a wage. Temporary agencies do the exact same thing, so the company that hired the service IS paying for their healthcare. It's included in the hourly rate they charge their customers.

The reason companies do hire temporary temporary workers is because we have allowed the liberals to promote irresponsibility. When you promote irresponsibility, don't be surprised when you have more irresponsible people. Many companies find it beneficial to hire temporary workers because it's much easier to get rid of them when they are sent lazy irresponsible workers.

No, no. In the real world, you got a tax break and taxes were at the lowest they had been in 50 years when the Tea Baggers were crying "Taxed Enough Already". Don't you remember? The internet does and will forever...you know. The doom of the GOP.
Don't you remember? I already posted a factcheck article that says you are lying.

IF someone is hunting for a job, they could use 100's of minutes per month after month. At least WE aren't paying for their internet too which may be next.
LOOK, I have too many in-laws that are as useful as running shoes on a snail so I know the routine. They even tell each other as to which case worker to see or avoid & how to fill out forms. They collectively work the system. That's my problem & your problem, too little over site as to who is entitled to what.
I am very glad that they are in-laws & not blood.
Well that's the problem. There is no oversight. Politicians (particularly Democrat politicians) give people what they want. You give people what they want, and they will vote for you. The more people you give to, the more votes you get.

Five years of DumBama, and we have more people in poverty then before he came along, more people on food stamps, yes, more Obama phones out there, more people on SS disability. How did that happen during the most miraculous economic recovery known to man?

It's like Rush Limbaugh always says "If you pay people not to work, don't be surprised when they don't."

You're crazy as hell. I grew up on a farm too and i still own the 400 acres my gr gr grandpa put together when he got home from the civil war. For what I pay in taxes my roads should be paved in gold! And furhermore your crop reaches world market by rails which aren't government owned. They're privately owned!!

Your gap between haves and have nots is directly attributable to the growing corporate tax. Daimler Chrysler headquartered in Germany and not the US strictly due to their tax liability was nearly 30% less. Of course they were going to take tthose jobs with them. Thanks dems.

And the dems say...... awww shucks, misery loves company.

The federal tax revenue pie chart is less than 12% made up of corporate taxes.
When you tax a corporation more that's the first expense passed on to consumers as embedded taxes. It only makes corporations the tax collector. The individual consumer is ALWAYS the one who gets stabbed in the neck. And workers lose their jobs.
When people want to tax corporations more thats only incentive for them to take jobs and leave the country.
With the pie chart only 12% corp taxes, why not just lower corp taxes to zero and suck in corporations from around the world and make it so everyone who wants a job can have one? If and when there becomes a shortage of workers look at what wages did in N.Dakota recently.
This is long past stating, again & again for some people. Especially the ones that do not realize that EVERY expense incurred by a corporation MUST be passed on to the end consumer or they must close their doors. Economics 101.
The CEO's will always get there's or move to another company. duh
Keep telling them!

Had it handed to you!?!?
Canton doesn't realize that when one grows up on a farm that they start doing chores at a young age & then actual hard work as soon as they can depending on what the farm produces. He also doesn't realize that farming is 365 days a year. And that when the weather is the worst it often requires the hardest work in dangerous storms, snow, ice, floods, varmints of all sorts, molds, invading insects, etc.
Forgive him, He's simply proving what sort of mean mouth moron he is by NOT knowing that his produce, chicken, eggs & burgers come from somewhere B4 the grocery store.

CEO's get paid by how good of a job they do just like you or I. If a CEO saves a company 12 million dollars, than without a doubt, he or she will share in some of that profit they made for the company.

The worker on the other hand only produces and is paid by how much he can produce in an hours time. If the worker produces more thus making the company a little more profit, he or she will likely make more than those that produce less.

Workers are not paid by how profitable the company is. If one believes that they should get paid according to the profit a company makes, then they should only work jobs that offer profit sharing or perhaps buy stock in the company they work for.

Speaking of consumers though, it's the consumer that drives the demand for lower priced cheaper products--not the CEO. The CEO's job is to make the company the most money he or she can. If the CEO can't do that, then the company lets him go and they hire somebody that can. On the other hand, a great CEO has a price he will work for. If a company doesn't want to pay the CEO that salary, the companies competitor will. It's no different than a famous musician looking at a recording contract, a star quarterback or a famous actor or actress.

I won't forgive him though. Hes a proll and he can rot in his own squalor for all I care. Joe McCarthy warned about this and he was right. And it was Khrushchev that said we would defeat you without firing a shot. Both are coming to fruition.

Wonder what happened to Cantons farm he grew up on.

Anymore its how vast a CEO s network of lobbyists are as well.If his lobbyists can get special favors from politicians no matter dem or rep, if he can save a company 50 million dollars in tax liability its worth paying the ceo half that.

That's what peons like canton NEVER can see. Theyll never read books to find that the Fair Tax would negate all that Bullshitt. Theyd sooner just take everyone's money and divide it up evenly cause somehow its their belief that they too will live like Doctors and Lawyers all of a sudden.

That's another part about people like Canton. They can't do the math to realize that if we divide up Bill Gates 75 billion dollar fortune it only amounts to 231 bucks per person in the US. Woot.... I guess Canton would be livin high on the hog with 231 bucks but ffor normal people that won't go far.

Not to mention that even if some benevolent company divided that CEO's pay among the workers, the CEO would leave. It's the CEO that creates the work for the producers. Then when a competitor hires that CEO and takes the business away from his former company, all those workers would be out of a job.

Yes, a CEO does have political ties. He or she has business ties. He or she has international ties. It's all those ties that make a CEO more valuable. It's years and years of work called Climbing Up The Ladder. Those who get to the top of that ladder earn the highest salary.
