Not sure who to vote for yet which governor was it in ohio that voted in driving while talking on a wireless headset was illegal??? Most states don't treat citizens like law breakers in order to take money from hard working Ohioans.

Yes, I know. It's almost as if our CLIMATE was CHANGE-ing. Glad we can see eye to eye as rational, individual thinkers. You know, I don't have a dog in this fight. I don't care about Nancy Pelosi. She kinda has crazy eyes. Congress sitting around really doesn't show up in my breakfast routine. I don't see Hillary Clinton and Newt Gingrich wrestling over abortion on the side of the highway as I drive to work. The Koch Brothers aren't fighting the IRS with drones and illegal immigrant children in the streets as I get my mail. My point is, yes we have had our lizard brain fun on here, venting our frustrations on a defined "enemy", which would be each other. The three stooges, knee jerk response of the cruel laughter of watching someone slip and fall. Win, fail and so on. Hear me out on this. We need to start mentally training ourselves to completely ignore our differences. We need to ignore these political, religious, scientific, racial, corporate and idealistic and greed driven agendas that are constantly being bombarded on us middle class Americans. We need to start being honest and drop this Jerry Springer grade distraction that we are doing as both sides, to over come the division, and uncertainty of our country right now. If we could achieve a bipartinship movement that flat out ignored any televised propaganda machine, be it left or right, and came to a agreement of what we demand from our government, as American citizens, we could quite possibly elevate this country to the greatness that it has been, and potentially could be again. Let's whittle down the few fundamental aspects of our human existence and come to an agreement. I'm talking the most common and important things that we deal with on a daily basis. Our children. Our roads. Our right to worship in any non-violent way we wish. Our right to own reasonable firepower to take care of ours. A job that would make any American bust his ass and go the extra mile because the company has his back with a realistic paycheck and health care for their kids. Food with no weird shit in it. Tap water that doesn't make you think twice. There a simple, basic things that we could all agree on and demand from our government. Skip the racist you, commie me bullsh1t and take of each immediate issue together. It means we both have to change. that's tough to do.

Sorry about the typos and nothing I said was meant to be a insult in any way. I'm saying let's together address the most basic, and fundamental issues that we face in the real world. Not just your opinion of Rush Limbaugh or Hillary Clinton. I'm talking real stuff, like does my kid have enough to eat. Like as middle class citizens, regardless of left or right, we made sure that every American child has enough to eat. Just that one issue. Lock it down really tight with security measures that minimize or even eliminate any fraud. No scammers. No free loaders or big wigs trying to cheat the system. Just an across the board agreement that we are all willing to make sure that every American child does not go to bed hungry. Then we together address the next agreed upon, basic need. Drinking water quality comes to mind. Agree as a whole how much we are willing to invest in quality water and a stability of the availability of the drinkable water in the near and distant future. Healthy American kids, food and water. 1,2,3. How could we not agree on that?

What kid in America is going hungry and why? We are the fattest nation on the planet, just ask Mrs. DumBama. 47 million Americans on food stamps eating like pigs. This is not to mention all the charities we have that provide food.

If you legitimately don't have enough food in the house, we have programs for that. If the mother is not feeding the kid correctly, somebody rat her out and the government will take the kid away from her. How much more can anybody do than that?

If you're talking about kids in foreign countries, the answer is simple, don't have kids if you live in that environment, but we can't make people responsible over there. Heck, we are becoming more and more irresponsible here.

The subject of world hunger has already been addressed by Mr. Kinnison who came up with a perfect solution to world hunger:

The problem isn't the government not addressing these issues, the problem is the lack of pragmatism with the Democrat party.

The problem with our jobs is everybody wants to get paid like royalty but those same people don't want to buy American products from other Americans because they are too expensive. Republicans told the country this is bound to happen if you give too much support to unions and they were absolutely correct.

So mindless jobs don't pay that much anymore and if the Democrats have their way with amnesty, that's going to increase American unemployment and lower wages even more. Add to that that the non-working can live just as good (if not better) than the working and the problem is clear to see.

Americans don't want to bust their azzes anymore. The jobs are out there, it's just that they are too inconvenient for Americans to take. I told you about my profession and you can go to Craigslist want ads and see for yourself. Thousands of jobs out there that Americans won't take.

My father---a retired bricklayer. stays in touch with his former union. They send out letters to their members about the trade. Their latest letter was asking their retirees to find people to get involved in the trade of bricklaying. They can't find enough people. The job is too hard. My father made a great living as a bricklayer so it's certainly not the money. The few people that are interested in the career can't pass the drug test. Smoking pot is more important than a job.

The solution to our problem is tough love which is something Democrats fear the most. If you're hungry enough, you'll take any job that will feed yourself and your family. When your electricity is cut off and you can't watch your cable, you will take any job to pay that electric bill and keep your lights on.

I know I addressed just one of the issues you posted, but I'm running out of room. The bottom line is the solutions to our problems is pragmatism no matter how mean it seems to be. The solution (as Limbugh frequently says) is concentrate on results instead of intentions.

In a report released in January of 2014, Goldman Sachs Chief U.S. Economist noted that the strength in corporate profits is "Directly related to the weakness in hourly wages. Companies have discovered that precisely by keeping wages lower, They have been able to boost profits to record levels and fulfill their ultimate goal: Rewarding Shareholders."
Yep, those Democrats fight tooth and nail to keep wages suppressed. While the people who do absolutely nothing are making record profits. And enjoy those huge tax breaks that they have bought and paid for. The House GOPT scream about cutting spending, yet almost every thing they pass has even more revenue reducing amendments attached as favors for those same people.

Another one of your failed posts Troll: PAGE NOT FOUND.

People that do nothing? You watch too many television shows under that bridge. Those people that "do nothing" are the job creators of our country. Without them, the country folds because government can't survive without them.

Of course they strive to pay lower wages if they can. When you need your car fixed, do you look for the higher priced mechanics? When you need a plumber for a major project, do you take the highest of the three bidders?

Everybody looks to pay less be it our goods we buy from the store, the services we use, or the help we can hire.

People who made good money and invest it are no different. Why would you pick a company that pays about 2% profit at the end of the year compared to a company that pays 7% profit if you tied up your hard-earned money into the market? Would you hire an investment agency that performed that way?

Most everybody in this country wants the biggest bang they can get from their buck, so don't act like corporations are the only ones.

Obama wants businesses to raise pay. Here’s why they probably won’t listen.

January 29, 2014

Here’s the trouble with Obama's request. Companies have discovered that precisely by keeping wages lower, they have been able to boost profits to record levels and fulfill their ultimate goal: rewarding shareholders. In a report released earlier this month, Goldman Sachs chief U.S. chief economist Jan Hatzius noted that the strength in corporate profits is “directly related to the weakness in hourly wages.”

“The weakness of wages and the resulting strength of profits are telling signs that the U.S. labor market is still far from full employment,” Hatzius wrote.

Another thing those Liberal Democrats also approved NAFTA in 1993 too which Liberal Democrat Bill Clinton signed into law which are also the same Liberal Democrats along with Liberal Democrat Bill Clinton who granted China Most Favored Nation Trade Status in 1993 which proves those Liberals were for keeping wages suppressed here in the US plus Remember in 1993 the Democrats Controlled both the House of Representives and the Senate in 1993 which proves they are for Big Business and who benefits from Liberalism which Obamacare is another prime example of the shift of tax dollars to the Health Insurance Industry.

Statement on Most-Favored-Nation Trade Status for China
May 28, 1993

Yesterday the American people won a tremendous victory as a majority of the House of Representatives joined me in adopting our plan to revitalize America's economic future.
Today Members of Congress have joined me to announce a new chapter in United States policy toward China.

China occupies an important place in our Nation's foreign policy. It is the world's most populous state, its fastest growing major economy, and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. Its future will do much to shape the future of Asia, our security and trade relations in the Pacific, and a host of global issues from the environment to weapons proliferation. In short, our relationship with China is of very great importance.

Liberals pro big business? The facts say it is so

Many liberals (aka progressives) like to say that the democratic party is the party of the people, and the republicans are the party of big corporations. This is what they want people to think, yet the opposite is true.

In fact, liberals are pro big business. They want fewer private businesses, because with few large corporations it's easier for liberals to tell these business owners what they want to hear, and then make laws that favor them, so that these progressives can slowly move forward their progressive agenda.

People buy stocks for two reasons; to get a dividend, the higher the better, and to resell at a higher price. If both happen even better. Not a single person buys a stock in hopes of low or no dividends and selling it.at the same or lower price rhan was bought.
I want the companies I invest in to make large profits, that in turn makes gives larger dividends and higher selling price at some.point.

Liberals don't think like that. They think people base their investment choices on what company overpays their workers, less profitable, and is less competing in that line of work.

They constantly complain about Wal-Mart wages and so on, but who are Wal-Mart's customers? Wealthy conservative Republicans?

Liberal Democrats in Congress including Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell(D) of Maine, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi(D) of California and POTUS Bill Clinton didnt feel that way and were honored to be joined by representatives of the business community here in the US as stated by Liberal Democrat Bill Clinton in his statement regarding granting China Most-Favored-Nation Trade Status in 1993.

Statement on Most-Favored-Nation Trade Status for China

May 28, 1993

Yesterday the American people won a tremendous victory as a majority of the House of Representatives joined me in adopting our plan to revitalize America's economic future.

China occupies an important place in our Nation's foreign policy. It is the world's most populous state, its fastest growing major economy, and a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. Its future will do much to shape the future of Asia, our security and trade relations in the Pacific, and a host of global issues from the environment to weapons proliferation. In short, our relationship with China is of very great importance.

Unfortunately, over the past 4 years our Nation spoke with a divided voice when it came to China. Americans were outraged by the killing of prodemocracy demonstrators at Tiananmen Square in June of 1989. Congress was determined to have our Nation's stance toward China reflect our outrage. Yet twice after Congress voted to place conditions on our favorable trade rules toward China, so-called most-favored-nation status, those conditions were vetoed. The annual battles between Congress and the Executive divided our foreign policy and weakened our approach over China.

It is time that a unified American policy recognize both the value of China and the values of America. Starting today, the United States will speak with one voice on China policy. We no longer have an executive branch policy and a congressional policy. We have an American policy.

I am happy to have with me today key congressional leaders on this issue. I am also honored to be joined by representatives of the business community and several distinguished Chinese student leaders. Their presence here is a tangible symbol of the unity of our purpose. I particularly want to recognize Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell of Maine and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi of California. Their tireless dedication to the cause of freedom in China has given voice to our collective concerns. I intend to continue working closely with Congress as we pursue our China policy.
