<quoted text>Conservatives proved they're traitors when the TWICE elected the World's Village Idiot, George Bush whose parents were so stupid they didn't even know enough to either name him Jr. or give him a different name to avoid a lifetime of confusion.
They also proved they're traitors when they kept electing him and his da-da as they kept promoting the New World Order.
The N W O is the worst treason in history, and it will destroy this country, but AGAIN, CONSERVATIVES ARE TRAITORS, LOYAL TO THE PARTY, NOT TO THE COUNTRY.
Where have we seen that before? Oh yes, Nazi Germany where the conservatives were loyal to Hitler and betrayed their country. Morons never learn the lessons of history.
They're so brain-dead they can't even learn current history, like the fact that GEORGE BUSH STARTED FAST AND FURIOUS, but Obama was caught up in it.
Lies, lies, lies, poor little conservative brains just soak them up.
You are confused by the two George Bushs, and you feel competent to debate politics? That is priceless!

And how many jobs have we lost to Mexico or Canada? Most all of our goods come from China today, and some of it from India. I don't have to tell you that much of our customer service work is farmed to India. That's why you can't get a straight answer when you call for a problem with your toaster or cable television.
I'll stick with Dr. Williams theory that we are becoming an automated world. Furthermore, I see a great problem with illegal and legal immigration; people willing to come here and work for nothing. This lowers the worth of the American worker.
My father (a bricklayer) was asked if he wanted to take work in Florida for a few months during the winter. Usually during the winter, they are so harsh that bricklayers just go on unemployment for the season. My father loved his work and it sure beat the hell out of unemployment. He was all set to go when he found out that bricklayers down there make less than half of what he makes up here. Immigration.
I also see it in my line of work as a truck driver. These foreigners come here and will work weeks on end over the road, and they'll work for just about any wage.
I don't agree as I have done both.

Down here and out of state when immigration had little to do with his and your assessment.

I started out as a blocklayer, did that for 6 years, when Igot out of that 25 years ago , I was making $17.00 hr., now they want to pay the same or less.

I drove cross country for Covenant transport (I know,spare me the insults) 15 years ago,@$0.24 a mile when I walked away 5 years later $@ 0.35 a mile.

What they pay now same damned thing, if your lucky.

Now, I'm making less than what I made 20 + years ago, it seems.

I see in your blame game that you consistently omit Bill Clinton. Wasn't he the President that signed the free trade agreement?

Yes, Williams is a conservative free market economist. But nobody has ever disputed his facts and figures. If you read the piece, you see he points to all of his sources which anybody could look up.

In short, free trade not only gained us jobs, but also better paying jobs. His point is that you can't have insourcing without outsourcing. We can't just close the doors on the borders and say we only let in--not out.

During Bush's first term, we seen a lot of steel mills closing down in the US. Bush tried to put an import tax on steel. Those countries put an import tax on American goods. Taxes don't work.

You also can't willy nilly things you heard all the time. Some of them have no truth to it. Bush didn't give tax breaks to companies that went overseas:

Dude, you just made his point for him! Look at your time frame. Immigrants have increased in number over time. Does it not occur to you that is the reason for the lower wages?

Exactly. It seems that every container driver I run into is from the middle-east or Russia. Same goes with flatbed drivers. The CB radio sounds like the UN on many days.

As long as companies can get these foreigners to work for nothing, they are going to pay nothing. Plus the fact we have a lot of guys out there who are college educated or have a different career, it's just that there is no work in their field right now. I call them non-professional drivers.

Since the flood of these people, truck accidents have been on the increase. They can barely read English and some are just not used to spending long hours on the road. They don't belong behind the wheel of a truck. They belong behind a computer or drafting table.

I disagree.

With the crap you must go through now to get a job, they want to pay less for a skilled craftman or a driver.

As far as construction goes, they are cutting their own throat trying to underbid each other, just to get the work and pay slave wages.

As far as drivers are concerned, being an illegal, you will NOT get a driving job, as far as I know, they take fingerprints and run you through NCIC, FBI, NSA and rest of the alphabet agencies.

You won't last long being an Illegal doing that job.

It's a shame. The police avoid dealing with them, because their hands are tied.

I notice you still can't deviate from your insult slinging methods. You should probably take a close look at your perception of reality if you must resort to insults to back it up.

I've never seen or heard of a single liberal anywhere in the world doing and saying that, so again you don't know the difference between fantasy and reality.
I do know that conservatives give when there's a tax write-off.
So, what you're bytching about is liberals not giving, AND that liberals want the government to give more to help people.
You're also saying that conservatives give more, AND that you all are right when you parrot your poison about how people should not be helped.
Do you even KNOW how to THINK for yourself?
Hey, why not listen to messiah when he gives a State of the Union speech next time rather than just worship him.
You'll hear a libby use the words "I" and Me" so many damn times you'll think he is really a god. That's called fanfare.
We have yet to hear him take any responsibility for record debt, record food stamp recipients, record unemployment, record bankruptcies, record crime, etc.
How about bailouts to "Green" companies that folded?

And you have always aluded to or even hailed libbies as more compassionate and charitble that conservatives which is the biggest pile of horsecrap in the world.

I would even bet Joe Biden has given more donations than you have. LOL

Brought on by the economy that messiah has going. Supply and demand alos plays out in the job market. With record unemployment it is easy to pay less because that's what the market bears.

Again, messiah's fault. There are numerous "shovel ready" projects that never saw any bailout monies because messiah said with a giggle "There weren't as many shovel ready jobs as we thought." Lots of local governments have projects on back burners because tax revenue is down (because of a bad economy) and waiting for that money that never came.

Jun 26, 2011

Representative Michele Bachmann, a Minnesota Republican planning to seek the party’s presidential nomination, said she would stoke U.S. economic growth by cutting taxes on corporate income and capital gains and considering elimination of the minimum wage.

Tonight during the Republican Presidential debate Congressman Ron Paul was asked if he believes that eliminating the minimum wage would create jobs.

2011/09/07

He emphatically stated that he does think that eliminating the minimum wage would create jobs, and that it would also help the poor.

For most people, making $15,000 a year would be nowhere near enough to get by in this country. When people consider their own lives with groceries, gas for their cars, mortgage payments or rent, various bills and other expenses, bringing in slightly less than $300 a week would probably seem terrifying and stressful for them.

The idea that some Republican candidates would not see that as an issue proves they do not understand and do not care about the problems of the middle class. There is no reason to think the previous 116 Republicans who voted against the wage increase in 2007 would now vote for an increase. If Republicans regain the majority, middle class America could see their lives become that much harder.

Poor teabagger.

Show where a conservative has "dished it out". Dr. Sniper referred to denial and blinders in response to your reply to a credible post. You in turn cast the stupidity and ignorance crap. Can you not see the difference?
When viable information is posted and you choose to ignore it and stick to your misinformation, people saying you have blinders on, or are in denial, or are willfully ignorant, is not an insult. It is a valid observation.
In the other hand, when you call people stupid and ignorant and idiots... just because you don't like what they said or proved or that they debunked your misinformation, that is casting insults.

I hope this has helped you see how you come off to the people reading this thread.
