You are wrong. I don't say those things to "everyone on here that disagrees with [me]," but then you distort the truth often.
I call people who act like babies and post in a childish manner those things because that's how they appear to me, and you became extremely angry when you didn't like the truth.
It's YOU who needs to get over it. YOU are the one who initiated this squabble in the first place. You seem to have an issue with letting things go though and love to argue just to argue over petty chit.
Again, everyone is childish BUT YOU!!!!!! LMAO

LOL! Then why do you keep reading them and instigating arguments?
If I repeat things about people like you and your ilk, it's because many of you post in the same manner. Truth is consistent.
I find you annoying, but I don't go looking for your attention, so my suggestion to you? Stop posting to me and gossiping about me (like a little girl.) That's who you behave, so that's why it gets repeated. Get it?
Whatever Rose. "many of you post in the same manner". That would be all of us who disagree with you. You get the pattern?

And of course we act "like a little girl". Childish and baby are your usual terms.

Liberals emphasize feeling superior, not superior results. Liberalism is all about appearances, not outcomes. What matters to liberals is how a program makes them FEEL about themselves. Liberals tend to view people as parts of groups, not individuals. One of the prejudices of liberalism is that they see everyone as part of a group, not as an individual. This can lead to rather bizarre disparities.

Liberals take a dim view of personal responsibility. Who's at fault if a criminal commits a crime? The criminal or society? If someone creates a business and becomes a millionaire, is that the result of hard work and talent or luck? If you're dirt poor, starving, and haven't worked in 5 years, is that a personal failing or a failure of the state? Conservatives would tend to say the former in each case, while liberals would tend to say the latter. But when you disconnect what an individual does from the results that happen in his life, it's very difficult to understand cause and effect in people's lives.

Liberals give themselves far too much credit just for being liberal. To many liberals, all one needs to do to be wise, intelligent, compassionate, open minded, and sensitive is to BE LIBERAL. In other words, many of the good things about a person spring not from his actions, but from the ideology he holds.

Gov't seems to always come up with a way of watering down the rules so it EASIER, not harder to cheat the system. I see it too frequently so you can't tell me that it isn't a BIG problem. Why is everyone all up in arms about drug testing welfare recipients? They would have to take a drug test to get a job at most employers to earn a paycheck. Why not the same for getting a gov't check? There is PLENTY of low hanging fruit to fix a lot of fraud but there aren't any politicians with balls enough to get tough on it.

Oceanside Councilmember Has Harsh Words for Mexican Mafia During Presentation from Laura Duffy

News TickerOceanside Councilmember Has Harsh Words for Mexican Mafia During Presentation from Laura Duffy

.Facebook Twitter News Ticker alerts Write a story for us More Sharing ServicesShare Email .Elected officials in Oceanside have been known to take a hard line on certain issues. And while councilmember Jack Feller has often focused eliminating waste in city government, on Friday he had his sights set on the Mexican Mafia.

Feller had some choice words for the prison system for allowing members of the Mexican Mafia to operate while behind bars.

His comments were in response to a presentation that U.S. attorney Laura Duffy gave to SANDAG's Public Safety Committee on the influence of the Mexican Mafia in San Diego County.

"It frustrates me to know that these [street gangs] are being controlled in prison. You have to be so politically correct, making sure they have the right kind of toilet paper and every other stupid thing. How come we can't keep them from communicating to the outside?"

Added Feller: "I wish you could find a canyon to put them in."

According to Duffy, while the Mexican Mafia is reported to have only 150 to 200 members, it is considered one of the most powerful in the region. The organization controls nearly all Hispanic street gangs and has a number of operatives inside state and federal penitentiaries as well.

For those reasons, Duffy and local law-enforcement agencies have targeted the organization as was seen on January 25, when officials arrested 119 gang members from 20 different gangs, including 2 leaders of the Mexican Mafia in a countywide sting operation.

"We were able to cripple some of those street gangs that do the bidding and the work for the Mexican Mafia. We are going to align ourselves and devote our focus and resources to these cases."

Walmart Must Be Accountable

March 1, 2011
By John R. Durso, President, Local 338 RWDSU/UFCW

For years, Walmart has been a notorious violator of the country’s labor laws. Over the past decade, the company has faced dozens of lawsuits in nearly every state for wage and hour abuses, including not allowing employees to take breaks, requiring them to work through lunch, or forcing them to work off the clock, without pay. Other lawsuits have dealt with child labor law violations, where minors worked too late at night, during school hours, or worked too many hours in a day. Such allegations are not limited to the United States.

In 2005, a secret internal memo to Walmart’s Board of Directors was published by The New York Times. The memo outlined proposals designed to make long-term employment with the company unattractive and create a workforce that would be younger, healthier, and cheaper. To accomplish this, Walmart has changed several employment policies. Since then the company has implemented wage caps on hourly jobs, increased the percentage of part-time employees, and required employees to be available around the clock as their shifts would be determined by a computer system located at the corporate offices. Additionally the company has sought ways of decreasing the costs associated with Associates’ health benefits, including changing job descriptions to require more physical activity in order to attract healthier workers, adding a surcharge to employees who have health coverage for their spouse and moving the workforce from traditional health insurance to Health Savings Accounts, which are funded by the employees.

The company will also be before the U.S. Supreme Court this year, facing a class action suitthat claims women faced gender discrimination in pay and promotions. This suit covers between 500,000 to 1.5 million women who have worked for the company since December 1996. As a result, the National Organization of Women has referred to Walmart as a “Merchant of Shame.”

The healthcare situation for Walmart employees has not improved much. Almost half of Walmart’s associates, a total of approximately 644,000 workers were not insured through the company in 2010. 182,000 of that total were left completely uninsured while another 43,000 relied on Medicaid and other state run programs. Walmart’s dependence on State programs to subsidize those associates who are not eligible for or cannot afford their insurance, costs the
public millions each year. In Ohio, a report by the State Department of Job and Family Services revealed that 15,000 Walmart employees and their dependents were on Medicaid or received food stamps, a statistic that cost taxpayers $68 million dollars in 2008 alone.

Walmart ranks number one on this year’s list of Fortune 500 companies. In 2010 the company’s revenues were over $408 billion. They made a profit of over $14 billion, a surge of 7% from the previous year. The company claims that $80 billion of that revenue goes towards labor costs, a number they have spent the last six years attempting to lower.

Walmart has one of the country’s HIGHEST EMPLOYEES TURNOVER RATE, a fact the company acknowledged in their 2010 filing with the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission. Yet, they spend millions on media campaigns glorifying their labor practices, millions that instead could be reinvested into their workforce through raises, more hours for their employees, and/or making health insurance more affordable and accessible.

It is time we hold Walmart accountable to the people who comprise their workforce and contribute to their overwhelming success. Until then, we cannot allow them into New York City to take advantage of and silence the voices of hardworking men and women.

Liberalism creates a feedback loop. It is usually impossible for a non-liberal to change a liberal's mind about political issues because liberalism works like so: only liberals are credible sources of information. How do you know someone's liberal? He espouses liberal doctrine. So, no matter how plausible what you say may be, it will be ignored if you're not a liberal and if you are a liberal, of course, you probably agree with liberal views. This sort of close-mindedness makes liberals nearly impervious to any information which may be valid .
Liberals emphasize feeling superior, not superior results. Liberalism is all about appearances, not outcomes. What matters to liberals is how a program makes them FEEL about themselves, not whether it works or not.
Liberals take a dim view of personal responsibility. Who's at fault if a criminal commits a crime? The criminal or society?
