just what we need more garbage wages in an upper scale state.

When will these politicians figure out that wasting money sucking in junk jobs means NOTHING

if they offer incentives to current business to INCREASE full time wages - they will do better in tax revenue and it will build middle class who spend the money at lower wage paying establishments.

They need to pursue idea's to get full time wages to increase by $1.00 an hour

give business an incentive to increase wages by $1.00 an hour where they get a sort of rebate benefit

Let them raise an employee wage each fiscal quarter to cash in on that same benefit with the understanding that if they drop an employee within 4 fiscal quarters of the last pay increase - they get penalized

I love the subtle yet blatent racism here:

"Cary officials declined to offer the company incentives, citing worries about lowering the town's median salary, which is just under $47,000."

Translation: Low wages are not good enough for whites who should ALWAYS have more than the minorities. Why? Because it looks better that way.

"Durham had no such worries. The city of Durham and the state awarded ACW $120,000 in incentives in January after the company said it would open a manufacturing plant and create 155 jobs. The average annual wage for the jobs is $33,457, well below Durham County's average of $57,772."

Translation: Low wages are perfect for you loser Negros and Hispanics. You will make enough to no longer qualify for those food stamps and Medicare but nowhere near enough to live a decent standard like the all perfect whites in Cary.

we don't need people who use their crystal balls on the internet to see things that are not racist!

OBVIOUSLY - the one who mentioned the term RACIST is the real racist here!

I don't need a crystal ball to know what the Triangle Area is about. Most of you ignorant self centered sheep are so removed from reality and morals that you are unable to comprehend things that are blatant never the less subtle. I could care less what you think, asshat. Just as long as you and you're farty kind stay in that anal reeking glut corrupt hell hole; the rest of the U.S. will be a better place.

You sound like some rotten apple squirrel ... just belly aching

besides that - YOU started playing the RACE CARD - no one else did!

For the record QUEER is not a race.

The only thing I have stated is that you blast people for their beliefs. Right or wrong, your style is abrasive. Maybe you should choose another tool besides the hammer in your hand.

sure ... okay!

here is the problem with that thinking ....

back in the 1960's the friggin liberal hippie's were very outspoken, persistent, and extremely blatant about their opinion's

and WHAT HAPPENED?? Conservative society is now being kicked in the teeth for standing for many of the things which made this country the WORLD LEADER.

We are now faced with the liberal/socialist/communist mentality which has reduced us to that of an upper level third world country.

and that (to me) is totally UNACCEPTABLE!

If you want your money taken from you by the pimp government as though your were the government's property - so be it.

BUT that is expected from people who lack the fortitude to be forthright with their registered Topix name

Try listening to what I am saying instead of the noise in between your ears - you could EASILY be surprised as to how spot on I am.

Trust this - I have heard Federal and local politicians parrot what I have said in their TV interviews and speeches - so I must be considerably correct on a lot of my considerations.

1: You assume a lot but you know nothing. I am not happy with this administration or the direction our Country is heading. I am very involved in trying to right the ship.

2: Your tone and writing style are offensive (read what I am typing and think about it before you go off on another rant). Your style makes people defensive and even some of those that are sitting on the fence probably move to the other side because of your style.

3: I lack fortitude because I have an anonymous account - yet your account does nothing to tie it back to yourself. Anyone can register for a topix account but they don't have to identify themselves and it certainly doesn't make them act decent.

4: I am very concerned about any politician that would "parrot what you say". We need stability and the right choices in these tough times and not some blow hard that likes to hear himself tout what he believes.

5: You are still a moron.

you are a punk - saying what I say is OFFENSIVE??
who is a moron bitch??
AntiTypical is a moron <--- I should kiss your punk ass for that?

Screw you ....

I am agressive Because you wimps have made it so SOMEONE on the conservative side needs to show some balls ...

You sound like a STATUS QUO REPUBLICAN - what you are saying doesn't mean shit ... it's lip service

When will people figure out that CONSERVATISM has been getting beat down since the friggin days of the beatnik

... I bet you are one of those who are so thrilled with Ronny (the actor President) telling Gorbachev to take down that wall ...

Ya' STILL don't get it do you??

America's arch enemy trembles when the actor acts like a big shot ... what a joke!

... I bet you are one of those who are so thrilled with the little Bush and how his liberal ass ran to Ted Kennedy to have him co-author the Education Bill or how the little Bush dumped way too much money into Head Start (a program originally designed to help kids of illiterate parents) which was there when many of their GRANDPARENTS were school age - a lot of good that's done!

Give me a break - you lack the skill in being anything more than whimpering problem.

FACE IT - even the Tea Party is JUST ... I bet you are one of those who are so thrilled with their status quo ... they toss out the same basic crap that has been spewed since Nixon!

.... and you are pleased with WHAT?? QUITTER Palin? She quit just like John Edwards!... another flake who makes promises that she does NOT keep

She promised to do a term as Alaska's governor - and broke that promise

WTF - she even promised her daughter she would be at that ridiculous dancing program on TV and FAILED at keeping that promise

She is as much of a FAILURE to the Republican's as Obama is to his side!

SERIOUSLY - what is different?? BOTH SIDES are full of crap!

One panders to the rich and one panders to the poor ... and they BOTH shit on me and the middle class

YOU DO KNOW WHO THE MIDDLE CLASS ARE??

The people who spend money that get the country working again!

I have only pointed out your bad behavior.

From my past experience, people like you are often over the top and compensating for other short comings.

If we were to meet face to face, I can assure you that you would not talk to me the way you do here. But you never know - morons typically make bad choices.

don't bet on that - I openly acknowledge being an ass and calling bull crap as I see it ... and no matter who you are - I don't care!

I do not put on a plastic face - I might tone it down a bit if you were a female ... but not much!

It's too bad you chose to attack me with that childish name crap ...

If you could shut up and listen - you would see where I am NOT wrong

... but you are also an ass and looking for an argument instead of replying to truth and facts.

I posted view points and all your bitch ass wants to do is attack the person you do not know ...

just like a liberal!

go figure!

At least I got the balls to continue using my REAL log in name.

1: No argument here about you being an ass.
2: I am a male but I still stand by my original statement - you would not speak to me this way to my face.
3: I find it amusing that you are accusing me of childish name calling.
4: You must be a very effective communicator with catchy lines such as: If you could just shut up and listen, you would see where I am NOT wrong. How's that communication style working with the wife?
5: I think calling you a moron is replying to the truth and stating facts
6: You are a big man behind the keyboard but probably not much of a man in person.
