How much are you receiving on bank loans, when they are using your deposit stooge? But you dont have working capital, right? Banks havent paid a nickle in interest in 7 years, but are expericing record profits.

I got out of cash as soon as Obama and his Idiot Gang came along.

Besides banks expericing record profits makes them as bad as that illeterate Jim Crow.

Anyone who experices should be put to death for sedition.

No I was referring to the Posse Comituat - you'll have to ask foster what that is.
I have no idea what a Posse Comituat is - might be a commie posse with qumquats or something.
Odd, just the other day you posted That Perry could supercede Posse Comituta with his activation of the Guard to the border. You wanted the Guard to fire in women and kids.

Your arguments make it obvious youre not awash with cash.

Idiots depend on bamks and abandoned market accounts after Bush nationalized Bamks. Hows that working for you?

I did?

No doubt you can copy and paste where I posted that.

I have no idea what a Posse Comituta is either - is it like a Posse Comituat?

I bet there are lots of women who would love to have a Guard fire in them.

Personally I love to fire in women (they love it too - strictly consentual mind you)- but NEVER in kids.

Only idiots stay in cash when inflation is looming on the horizon.

I never depend on bamks - they pee on the bed - and nationalized bamks are even worse than Jim Crow.

Dang bamks.

If we look back on history we would find that people working in politics also had a full time job. They would only travel to Washington when there was a meeting. Now they have at least two homes. One in the state that they represent and one in DC. Plus they have or get better Insurance packages, retirement packages for only doing a four year term in office.

I think that is what needs to happen is that they have to go back to the way it was when the goverment was formed. If they have to spend most of their time in DC then build them barecks to live in just like the Military has to live in. They get the same insurance and other bennifits that the military get.

We need to remember that they are there for the people. But it would seem that it has become a job to better ones self in every way and in some repects make it were they are above everyone. I think that if they want to fly to some place then they should fly couch just like the rest of us. If they want to fly first class then they have to pay for that out of their own pocket.

This is just my thoughts on it as a hole.

Yep.

The more money people make, the more they spend. The more they spend, the WEALTHIER the business corporations become.

So the rich get richer and some of the poor become a little less poor for a short while and the rest of the poor become even poorer and even LESS LIKELY to get out of poverty.

Living on minimum wage is tough, which is why most Mexican immigrants don't earn minimum wage... they earn more.

I pay a guy $45 to mow my lawn, and he usually finishes in less than an hour. He then goes on to mow about three other yards in my neighborhood on the same day, and I know he does this all over town at least five days a week. This guy earns 4 or 5 times minimum wage, and he barely speaks english.

Those day laborers you see standing by the gas station at sunrise (the ones you sneer at while you're driving to your dinky little McDonalds gig), they all earn at least $15 an hour and probably more if they're working home construction jobs.

If you're a white American male, and you're trying to support your family on minimum wage, then you are a dummy. You don't know sh!t.

Freddie May and Fannie Mac "collapsed" our financial system. Federally insured mortgages with mandated sub-prime lending quotas was a bad idea that originated back in the 1990s, before Bush.

You cant believe it,That takes the starch out of your rebuttles. The poverty line used to be $12,000 a year, now the poverty line is any wage below Virginia. 1/3 of the nation exist in poverty, dominated by Southern and Mid Weatern States.
WTF are you getting your numbers at?

Darn good observation. Minimum wage is a personal issue with GOP supporters because many of them earn minimum wage or near. Review the median wage in red states and the rate od depending on federal wage subsidies.
States don't earn minimum wage, people earn minimum wage.

It was Bush that exploded a producing economy and implemented a nationalized financial and automobile industry once his policies collapsed capitalism and our free market system. How long did it take Rome to recover after its collapse ?
Bush did that?

Boy, it's a good thing DumBama never gave our tax money to banks or automobile industry giants.

Leftists and their brilliant ideas for ruining an economy.
What minimum wage does is increase the cost of our goods and services. Then when those workers with the new minimum wage increase go to purchase items at stores, they are higher and find themselves in the exact same position they are in now.

This is how Democrats solve problems.

Barack Obama is the worst disaster in American history.

It will be a miracle if this country survives two more years of the horrible idiot.
