minimum wage jobs are not meant to be living wage jobs, hence the name...(they most certainly are not meant to be jobs to raise a family on...)
and you're still minimum wage!

LOL! Not angry at all.
Just having fun watching you make a complete ass of yourself. It was YOU who was angry because that thread you created failed, and you didn't get to be the center of attention you were so desperate for.
You're playing games and have no convictions about anything. You're just another run of the mill narcissist.
I was making a complete @$$ out of myself when I was defending Obama's failed rhetoric. When I was calling patriots fools and defending fools like yourself and your band of undocumented homosexuals and self loathing white trash. You are the little guy who nobody wants to hang out with because you always start a fight with the biggest guy in the room and expect to be defended by your posse. A stranger wanders in and everyone warns them about who Rose? It's you Rose! They warned us about YOU!

<quoted text>Oh, no! A great many seem remarkably amenable to this Pope! He's absolutely the most likeable Pope in a long time. He has probably upset a lot of apple carts, but he has also displayed character traits generally more characteristic of folks like Ghandi and Mother Theresa. He's a very intriguing character:

Pope prophetic, not political
Tom Krattenmaker
December 8, 2013
Pontiff has conservatives up in arms over views on economic inequality and capitalism.
It's one thing to say kind words about gay people and atheists while admonishing those who would bury them in stones. It's one thing to walk humbly and call the Catholic Church to compassion for the poor. It's one thing to kiss a horribly disfigured man from whom most people would run in disgust.
But apparently, it's quite another to start calling out growing economic inequality and naive faith in capitalism. By doing just that in his recent encyclical, Pope Francis has touched a third rail in conservative American politics. So begins the backlash.
Yet in the new round of skirmishing around Francis and his supposedly "liberal" views, U.S. political pundits and news media wags both progressive and conservative are missing the point about the pope and what he's up to. Their mistake? They see his words and deeds through the lens of American politics and ideology. What Francis is doing is prophetic, not political, and we should recognize that he's playing, to his credit, in a whole different arena.
Liberals beware
Many American conservatives have come to regard the Catholic hierarchy as their culture war ally. This pope is becoming something of a head-scratcher and headache for them now that he has spoken out against trickle-down economics and the fetishizing of free markets.(cont.)
Blab, blab and more BLAB, you have a reserved seat in hell waiting for you.

But, that is what we're creating here in America. Tribute goes to corporatists and the global economy. Those kinds of jobs were once reserved as the training ground. Not anymore. We "moved" to a service driven economy, had a Great Recession and can't get Congress to move on the AJA:

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)

Sure, the economy is adding jobs these days...but most of those positions pay pretty poorly.

Some 58% of the jobs created during the recovery have been low-wage positions, according to a new report by the National Employment Law Project. Only 22% have been mid-wage jobs and 20% higher-wage positions. These low-wage jobs pay $13.83 an hour or less.

"The recovery continues to be skewed toward low-wage jobs, reinforcing the rise in inequality and America's deficit of good jobs," said Annette Bernhardt, NELP's policy co-director. "While there's understandably a lot of focus on getting employment back to pre-recession levels, the quality of jobs is rapidly emerging as a second front in the struggling recovery."

The explosion in low-wage job growth comes after the Great Recession hammered the mid-wage job sector. Some 60% of the jobs lost during the downturn were mid-wage, as opposed to 21% of low-wage and 19% of higher-wage positions.

The fastest growing low-wage jobs include retail salespeople, food prep workers, laborers and freight workers, waiters and waitresses, personal and home care aides, office clerks and customers representatives.(cont.)

A minimum wage increase is not what is needed. We need living wage jobs in America.

The man was trying to make the world a better place. You called him a liberal and said he deserved to die.
Oh, I get it, you assumed he was a liberal because he was trying to make the world better and conservatives like you don't do that.
Got it.
BTW...you're not anyone's "better". Just another loser with a superiority complex. Got a couple of those around here.
he was an idiot, ergo odds are he was a liberal. No American in their right mind would go to a country full of barbaric religious nutjobs.

I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
What part of that says anything about placing Jesus between man and god? To believe that Jesus is a god is to violate god's first commandment. I love god and I do my best to keep his commandments. Jesus? Not so much.

It's essential if you want a reduction in the numbers of working Americans who must rely on taxpayer subsidy in order to simply get by. Otherwise, what so you suggest we do about our social welfare safety net? The Republican party recommends we just cut it and not concern ourselves with the "losers" who work but must rely on SNAP and taxpayer subsidy in order to feed their families while at the same time keeping our noses out of what the Walmarts and fast food franchises in America pay their employees that entitles them to subsidy. Do we ignore hunger in America? What do you want to do about that?

The Christian faith is offensive to god. In it's infancy, Christianity was hijacked by an idol worshiping homosexual pagan working for Satin and perverted into a belief system that violates all commandments of god. Anyone who says different is an agent of satin.
Is that an agent of red satin or black satin?

I don't care what this puke is. Whatever he wants to try and pull. Lets get it on! Odumazz may have all the liberals behind him but they're all spineless cowards that have never gotten their hands dirty a day in their life. He better be worried about the millions of Christians like myself that are ready to die for their Lord and Saviour Jesus.

We may seem like we're passive but when you push our backs to the wall. We are ready to fight and die for our belief. I'm ready to get bloody for what I believe in are you ?.

I'm ready to do whatever it takes to defeat these B*******.

I don't argue with science. I have always said that Men came to the new world and breed with the monkey race that was here creating the first Mexican. Evolution is real. There is no doubt about it. Lesser species tend to gather at the the edges of Man's societies and men have breed with them causing even the lesser species to evolve into something that can pass off as an intelligent species closer to what god created in the beginning but not the same. Their skin color is a little darker, their cranial capacity a little smaller and their self control is severely diminished compared to the man created by the breath of god. There is no conflict between creation and evolution. There are creatures on this planet that are eons older than the human species so if evolution were the only factor in intelligent life, Man wouldn't be the only species on this planet with advanced societies and an understanding of the universe around them. Since man is the only species on this planet to advance, even though man is one of the youngest species of life to exist here, there is something more at play than evolution alone. That is where creation comes into play. Either that, or man just showed up from somewhere else. Somewhere much older than this solar system. A place where life has existed long enough for a species to evolve into an advanced life form capable of creating life from basic elements something more evolved would be able to create the basic elements from nothing and create an entire universe with just a though. That would be a god. Now wouldn't it?
