I have some important news for you.

Every week, people lose their jobs & file unemployment claims.

How many???

Anything under 375,000 is considered an indication on job growth.

Under 300,000 is considered really good

So really, all, your posts about plants closing, people losing jobs etc etc etc just show how uninformed & ignorant you are.

My God you people are dumber than sh*t.

But you and I both know that is never going to happen. The politically correct obsession with smoking as the ONLY personal bad choice that must be banned and smokers being the only "sinners" to be acceptably socially ostracized is a Progressive-Oppressive Party victory.
Many non-smokers agree with me. This obsession has simply gotten out of control.
Why did CVS ban e-cigarettes? It's just vapor. But it's the stigma of smoking - even if it's vapor - that must be determined as socially unacceptable.
Smoking marijuana, however, anywhere and anytime is perfectly socially acceptable.
You're really not getting this?
if you can show that the government was involved in the CVS decision, Galt will be on your side....

if CVS or other stores decide not to sell politically correct products (like birth control pills or condoms) and the government objects, Galt will be on your side....

Galt really doesn't object to your right to kill yourself, but admits to prejudice because smoking is a truly offensive and disgusting habit.....

And btw, you should look up where 'common defence' was actually derived from.
You obviously have no clue about what you're talking about or the US Constitution. So I suggest you educate yourself and learn something factual for a change.
And if you don't, don't worry. You're simply.... SNAFU!!!!
You don't know the difference between the Constitution and law.
"naval forces" include the Coast Guard, dumbass.
If you are confused about any text in the Constitution and need an interpreter to explain it to you, please include the text in your post.
"Common defense" is the obligation of the federal government to use its authority as the central government over all the states having in common being part of the United States to defend each and every state. You'd know that if you read the complete sentence, moron.

Now, what you're saying is, Obama lied his whole life when he claimed to have been born in Kenya until 2007, right?

Health groups call on fast-food to drop soda from kids' menu
Breitbart ^| February 3, 2014 | UPI
Posted on 2/4/2014 9:13:23 PM by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Health organizations and U.S. nutrition experts say they are calling on fast-food restaurant chains to take sugary drinks off their children's menus.

Margo G. Wootan, nutrition policy director at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said McDonald's agreed to drop soda and sugary drinks from Happy Meal menus last year, and 100 U.S. and local health organizations along with nutritional experts said in a letter to Wendy's, Burger King and 21 other restaurant chains that they too should remove the items from their children's menus.

Subway, Chipotle, Arby's and Panera already exclude sugary drinks from kids' meals.

"With 1-in-3 children overweight or obese in the United States, it no longer makes sense to include sugary beverages in restaurant meals for young children," the letter said.

The groups quoted research published in The Lancet that found drinking just one additional sugary drink every day increases a child's chances of becoming obese by 60 percent, Wootan said.

Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers said Tuesday she is tired of constantly having to defend ObamaCare, saying the White House continues to put the law’s defenders in an awkward position.
Powers, who is also a columnist for The Daily Beast, expressed her frustration in reference to National Journal’s Ron Fournier, who admitted that he was a “naïve columnist” in a Tuesday article:“Why I’m Getting Sick of Defending ObamaCare.”
“I’m going to say amen, brother, because it’s exactly how I feel. People who have supported the law, who support universal healthcare, are constantly put in the position of having to defend this president, who has really incompetently put this together, rolled it out, and that’s why he has to do this. It’s why he has to keep doing this; because it’s not working.”
Powers, who is generally respected by both Democrats and Republicans alike, wasn’t through. She levelled her harshest criticism of ObamaCare to date:
“It’s now gotten to the point where it seems like there’s an exemption made for pretty much everybody except for individuals. A lot of people who have really been screwed over by the law, you know, who are left without insurance or with extremely expensive insurance.”
Kisten Powers represents the best of the “fair and balanced” on Fox News. While she is a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, she also calls ‘em like she’s sees ‘em. Something you won’t often see on MSNBC.
Incidentally, followers of IJR may recall this story from last fall about the unwanted ObamaCare surprise Kirsten received in her mailbox.

I imagine that's what Germans said in the 1930s and 1940s. Their leader had the media in his back pocket too.
Also what I imagine loyal North Koreans and the Chinese say too. They are also told what to believe and to deviate means being ostracized - or worse.
You should actually be thanking God - literally - for Fox. Otherwise, we would be no different than other people in other countries who hear only one media - controlled by those in power.
We're almost there now. Sure hope you figure it out soon.
Delusional much Carol? Fox and their various pundits are proven liars. Their lies about Benghazi were totally debunked by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report. Their claim that the ACA will cost jobs has been shown to be totally baseless and your hero O'Reilly recently repeated the lie that Sandra Fluke wanted taxpayers to pay for her contraception. But what the heck Carol, they tell you what you want to hear and then you repeat it on this thread no matter how many times the actual facts are pointed out to you.
If you want to get into Germany in the late thirties again, let's recap and compare the Tea Party with the Nazi brown shirts;
Nazis were funded by wealthy German industrialists like the Krupp's and Theissens.
The Tea Party by the Koch Brothers.
The Nazis were anti union.
The Tea Party, anti union.
The Nazis were anti gay.
The Tea Party, anti gay.
The Nazis, anti Semitic against the Jews.
The Tea Party anti Semitic against Muslims.
It was ignorant bigots like you that put the Nazis into power Carol but you're just too stupid to figure it out.
