"United Airlines is planning to eliminate more than 80 positions from Greater Rochester International Airport and Albany International Airport, the airline has told the state Labor Department."
United has been struggling ever since they merged with Continental Airlines in 2010. Passengers and corporate accounts have been leaving the carrier in droves for the competition and they have the worst operational record among the nation’s top 15 airlines. Their job loss is of their own making.

Oh, like most of your posts, your last sentence is nothing but unsubstantiated blather.
Blather, Gunner??

You're as lame as ever, I see.

Here's the proof, from Breitbart, no less. Don't you nitwits love Brietbart?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA


""A new study by the Frontier Lab, a conservative market research group, found that Republican voters who leave the party do so because they are are tired of being told to vote Republican as the "lesser of two evils." The study, "Switching Behavior: Modeling disaffiliation from the Republican brand," is published on the group's website and applies scientific methods of qualitative research to the GOP's most urgent problem.
Unlike the official Republican National Committee (RNC) "autopsy," which was prepared by consultants and political figures using familiar campaign-season methods such as focus groups and polls, the Frontier Lab study applied a specific methodology from market research, Behavioral Event Modeling (BEM), to understand the specific decisions of a sample of 97 Republicans who had chosen to leave the party in recent years.
Anne Sorock, author of the Frontier Lab study, writes that the RNC autopsy failed to provide "meaningful insights about how the Republican Party’s adherents are interacting with the brand as it stands." In an interview with Breitbart News, she expanded on her criticism of the RNC's self-examination, saying that the RNC's decision to use political consultants was "a perfect example of everything they are doing wrong."
The Frontier Lab study includes both conservative and moderate Republicans, and identified four key events that prompted individuals to "disaffiliate" from the party. One was the rejection of the "lesser of two evils" argument--the argument that voters had to support a bad Republican because the Democratic candidate would invariably be worse. Both conservatives and moderates are tired of the "two evils" argument, Sorock said.
A second event was a loss of hope in the Republican Party--a sentiment connected to the feeling that the party could no longer deliver on its promises because leaders had abandoned their principles. "The lack of perceived leadership by principle was strongly connected to this loss of hope," Sorock writes, noting that the GOP could reverse that perception through better communication and through actions more consistent with principles.
A third reason that Republicans had decided to detach themselves from the party label was "affiliation with a new community"--primarily the Tea Party, Sorock says, which offers the kind of "camaraderie" that the GOP itself no longer provides its members. Talk radio was another form of community, albeit one facilitated through electronic and social media, that provided what the Republican Party itself failed to offer.""


Now, don't you feel stupid, Gunner/Ray??

Stossel interviewed a black welfare worker outside a government welfare office who readily admitted abuse was rampant in the system. Her solution, when asked, was to stop giving them the money.
Also, did anyone see the video posted last night about the woman with 15 kids saying "somebody owes me" and the other video with another woman responding to her? Even if the second woman used "colorful" language to express her anger?
Thought it was pretty interesting. A lot of black people are apparently as outraged over the abuse and fraud as us "idiots".
there's a video of a woman telling a cop the only reason he was giving her a ticket was that he was jealous of her because he had to work for a living and she didn't because she got welfare and food stamps. When did welfare and food stamps become a badge of honor?

(if you need, please go back to your original post where ObamaKare states "The Secretary will determine.... over and over)
And this was my response you missed:
Obviously, you are ignorant of the most significant descriptions of governmental philosophy ever written in the history of civilization.
You don't even recognize that the text you provided could have been from one of Machiavelli's letters that comprise "The Prince".
ObamaKare contains the verbiage "The Secretary will determine...." over and over as a basis of how ObamaKare rationing and death panels will be adjudicated.
"The Secretary shall determine...."
Do you even realize what this law means when it gives arbitrary and subjective authority to some person who occupies some position in government?
What you provided is proof there is no law to be enforced. Everything you provided proves ObamaKare intends for subjective enforcement. There is no criteria in the text you provided for the people to read and understand what the law is that they must comply with.
What is written in the law is, the Secretary decides who gets health care, and who doesn't. The Secretary decides what hospitals get paid, and which ones do not.
The ObamaKare law is nothing more than another Democrat Marxist program to give what one individual works for to someone who won't work for it.
The ObamaKare law couldn't have been more Marxist if Karl Marx would have written it himself, and it couldn't be more Machiavellian if Machiavelli had to approve what Karl Marx wrote.
"The Secretary will determine...."
The Secretary will not be reviewing and approving/denying payment. There will be a huge bureaucracy doing that, under the orders and guidance of the Secretary... like the IRS Secretary ordering the opponents of the Democrats be targeted.
Since that same person will be the "Secretary" adjudicating ObamaKare, it's obvious those who oppose the Democrats will be dying on the street without health care.
ObamaKare is a Marxist program with Machiavellian execution.
It's that plain and simple, and obviously medieval.
And, your reply was nothing more than a duck and run to avoid admitting your assertions were lies.

In the dead of night before the shutdown, the Republicans forced through a rule change, one which effectively handed over control of the government over to one man, Eric Cantor. You see, under the rules of the house, the members of the house had the ability to put the Senate resolution to a vote in the house. Here is the rule, as written:

When the stage of disagreement has been reached on a bill or resolution with House or Senate amendments, a motion to dispose of any amendment shall be privileged.

New Rules, New Leader In Congress.

However, the rule change pushed through in the dead of night without any oversight or debate instead put the authority to proceed into the hands of the majority leader in the house, Eric Cantor. This is the same Eric Cantor who is known for having gutted anti-corruption and bribery legislation. And now, he runs the show. Even House Speaker John Boehner can not bring it up to a vote.

So-Called "Red State Welfare" = Junk Science

This "red state welfare" hypothesis falls completely apart when we look at the data.

The so-called top 10 "red states" on welfare are New Mexico, Mississippi, Alaska, Louisiana, West Virginia, North Dakota, Alabama, South Dakota, Virginia, and Kentucky.

The purportedly bottom 10 "blue states" not on welfare are New Jersey, Nevada, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Illinois, Delaware, California, New York, and Colorado.

To show how mindless this liberal proposition is, the "red state welfare" argument appears to be entirely based only on how each state voted in the most recent presidential election. This results in entirely junk science.

Former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was extremely critical Monday of the rollout for the Affordable Care Act, saying that the glitches and delays that have beset the health exchange website should cost some officials their jobs.

Gibbs suggested during an apperance on MSNBC that the Obama administration is lucky that the public's attention has been largely consumed with the government shutdown.

"Can you imagine if we weren't obsessed with the shutdown what would be going on on health care?" Gibbs, now an MSNBC analyst, said. "In fact, Republicans probably would be a lot closer to their goal had they not done that."

"This is excruciatingly embarrassing for the White House and for the Department of Health and Human Services. This was bungled badly," he continued. "This was not a server problem, just too many people came to the website. This is a website architecture problem. I think it's excruciatingly embarrassing. It's not fatal because there are still many weeks and days to go before the enrollment period closes at the end of March."

"a website architecture problem"

so who hired CGI? fire the idiot.

though Indiana didn't fire the guy who hired the company(Xerox. SNAP, TANF, ect...) that got thrown out of Texas and Indiana for incompetence. the GOP just moved him up the ladder.

New Zogby Poll: Obama Recovers, Congress Suffers from Shutdown

While a 45% job approval rating is hardly anything to brag about, especially in the context of a government shutdown and a looming crisis just days away regarding failure to extend the national debt limit, the new Zogby Poll shows the degree to which the government crisis is hurting Congress even more than the President – especially the public’s perception of the Republican Party. According to the new poll, Congress overall receives only a 13% job approval rating, compared with a 85% disapproval rating. The 13% figure matches the 13% approval rating of the Republicans in Congress, while the Democrats in Congress receive a 24% approval rating and 73% disapproval.

Blue State, Red Face: Guess Who Benefits More From Your Taxes?

""The results will stun many people, though not me: I’ve been telling my Tea Party relatives this for years. Here’s a list of the top 10 states that got the most back in terms of federal benefits, followed by the bottom 10. I’ve added the reasons why, when they’re obvious, in the space to the right.

To save space below,“pension benefits” include both Medicare and Social Security; “anti-poverty aid” includes Head Start, Low Income Home Energy Assistance, Food Stamp and nutrition programs for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), and several school-lunch-style benefits.

Top Ten (Source: Tax Foundation):

1. New Mexico Indian reservations, military bases, federal research labs, farm subsidies, retirement programs

2. Mississippi Farm subsidies, military spending, nutrition and anti-poverty aid, retirement programs.

3. Alaska Per capita No 1 recipient of federal benefits; infrastructure projects, DOT and pork projects.

4. Louisiana Disaster relief, farm subsidies, anti-poverty and nutrition aid, military spending.

5. W. Virginia Farm subsidies, anti-poverty and nutrition aid.

6. N. Dakota Farm subsidies, energy subsidies, retirement and anti-poverty programs, Indian reservations.

7. Alabama Retirement programs, anti-poverty and nutrition aid, federal space/military spending, farm subsidies.

8. S. Dakota Retirement programs, nutrition aid, farm subsidies, military spending, Indian reservations.

9. Virginia Civil service pensions, military spending, veterans benefits, retirement, anti-poverty aid.

10. Kentucky Retirement programs, nutritional and anti-poverty aid, farm subsidies.


Now consider the bottom 10, i.e., the ones that give more to the federal government in taxes than they get in return. From 1 to 10, they are:

New Jersey, Nevada, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Minnesota, Illinois, Delaware, California, New York, Colorado.

Anything strange about that list? Yes, they are all blue states (or the deepest of purple).

You nitwits are so screwed. You bitch about taxes, yet it's the reddest states (like Flake's WVA and VA) that get far more than they pay in.

If they didn't, WVA and th erest would empty out in a month.
