The sequester won't hurt anyone but Obama.

If Obama refuses the hurt like he has, he passes it on to those who voted for him.

The ash tray change cut in additional spending will not be even noticed, till the man child POTUS makes sure it is.

we cut change; and the hope is in it only for revenge.

the sequester willhave ZERO impact on anyone in my family.

So, the next time one of you lame bigots try to shyt on blacks, you reread what the guy from Silicon Valley said...paraphrase..."We don't want you khneegerrs here working in our industry because you're not white enough to 'fit in' with our spoiled rotten alcoholic privileged clique". Test scores and 'ability' seems not to matter to these pricks, so to Tony D2... it doesn't matter how qualified one is to a dyed in the wool racist socialpathic bigot!
Sociopathy is a complex personality disorder. Sociopaths exhibit a wide variety of maladaptive behavior which makes the condition difficult to diagnose. Sociopathy is not one trait; it is a syndrome—a cluster of related symptoms.
The following questionnaire is based on research and experiences of socialised sociopaths. For each trait, decide if it applies to the person you suspect may be a socialised sociopath, fully (2 points), partially (1 point) or not at all (0 points).
1) Do they have problems sustaining stable relationships, personally and in business?
2) Do they frequently manipulate others to achieve selfish goals, with no consideration of the effects on those manipulated?
3) Are they cavalier about the truth, and capable of telling lies to your face?
4) Do they have an air of self-importance, regardless of their true standing in society?
5) Have they no apparent sense of remorse, shame or guilt?
6) Is their charm superficial, and capable of being switched on to suit immediate ends?
7) Are they easily bored and demand constant stimulation?
8) Are their displays of human emotion unconvincing?
9) Do they enjoy taking risks, and acting on reckless impulse?
10) Are they quick to blame others for their mistakes?
11) As teenagers, did they resent authority, play truant and/or steal?
12) Do they have no qualms about sponging off others?
13) Are they quick to lose their temper?
Sounds more like a questionnaire to see if someone qualifies for Medicaid and foodstamps to me.

times the cost per unit of time. I have (and have known others who have) voluntarily charged less per hour in order to get the job. You'd no doubt call that a "race to the bottom" but I call it surviving the market conditions (I'd rather have a little less than none at all). It's also a good way to get your foot in the door for the opportunity to SHOW your worth.

I do that myself, a good way to keep business in this economy! I had so many calls in 2011 I couldn't keep up with potential customers.

And yet many refuse to work at all unless the pay is at a certain level (can you really justify going on strike if you're making $20+ an hour???)... Makes you wonder what their priorities could be. Seems like they care more about their own wallets than they do their "brothers' and sisters'" jobs.

Apparently true, because there are people who still have some humanity left in them enough to care for others who've fallen on hard times.

I just don't have the wealth to go with my heart to help more people who need a hand up, not just a hand out.

It's a well known fact that the Government is the biggest employer of blacks in America, with that being the case why are conservatives hell bent on destroying the USPS, which is an entity of government that is by name in the US constitution, and employs hundreds of thousands of blacks, pay good wages, has health care benefits and retirement, and do not operate with tax payer funding?

Is it a double blow attempt at 'killing two birds' with one stone by GOP members and a few rogue democrat congressmen, to wit, damaging the strong Federal union and laying off thousands of blacks that would put them in financial stress and on the road to EBT and medicaid enrollment? What is the real reason the GOP congress, in 2006, legislated a bill that would force the USPS to fund a retirement program 75 years in advance, where no other government entity, or for that matter no company known to man, is in such a pressured position.

If anyone has any doubt how hard postal workers do their jobs daily, I would challenge them to brave the elements yearly on foot, deal with drug infested neighborhoods, and killer dogs who hate the sight of a uniformed human being. Is $20hr. too much money for such a career...I think not. And what about those private companies such as FedEx, and UPS? Read this customers experience and be the judge!

I have a small business. I needed to ship a package to England. I took it to a UPS store and they said the most economical way was to use the US Postal Service. The charge was $16.75. I asked for a quote for the UPS price and they printed out s sheet that said $116.00. I didn't look at it until I got home. I thought there must be a mistake. I received the same results online so I called and talked to a UPS rep. He confirmed the price. FedEx online resulted in a similar price. So both private companies will charge me ten times as much as the USPS for the same service.

I have never had a problem using USPS to ship overseas.

I think a probe by the Justice dept. into the dealings of the Congressmen who voted and passed the bill would be warranted at this time for possible bribery and payoffs.

Besides, those workers spend money in businesses, pay mortgage, rent, buy products, and do what everyone else does in the private sector! What's you guys problem with government workers? Do Dems have their finger on why GOP hates government workers ...black employees and unionized labor?

If in fact blacks and women are hit the hardest by the "sequester", that will be by the choice of the president. It is the president that is trying to inflict the most visible pain to the country. It was the president that created the "sequester" in the first place. It was the president that refused to deal with the republicans to come up with solutions to avoid it, promising a veto of any legislation that tried to do so. It is the president that refused to sign a bill the republicans sent to him that would have given him the discretion to decide where the cuts would be made. It is the failure of leadership of the president on this issue that has caused the problem and brought us to this point. Even shutting the White House tours down to school children was petty and unnecessary, but was done by the president. After four full years in office, the jobs report this week showed us that unemployment among black youths from 18-25 years old is over 35%. The amount of tax dollars that it cost for this president to go to Florida to play golf with Tiger could have funded over 300 government jobs for a year, and thats after the back and forth to Hawaii at the end of last year that could have funded that many more. I am sick of the excuses that are made for this pathetic example of a leader. He is a divider and bad for America.

Statistics have been released for income. Last year, women made even less than they did before. Cheers to Lily Ledbetter?????
