PS: You time is done, Romney is as close as you will ever get. Perhaps there are a few places left in Arizona where you can be more comfortable, at least, tell your jokes without having to look over your shoulder: there, you'd be among friends.
How do you look over your shoulder with your head up your hindend? Good trick, but then again you always were good at turning tricks.

You may have seen the manufactured COLB, but not his birth certificate. That was witnessed by a mubutu chieftan.

Hostess will go out of busness in America, and go into business when they find workers that want to work, probably in Mexico

This started after World War 2. The big ticket unions became so greedy that they destroyed themselves and our future. We controlled everything. Now we control nothing but out past history. We pay each other off with fake money while the situation continues to decline as we are giving false stats to make us feel better. The reason these things are happening is because we are getting poorer. Paying up to three times more for bread and pastries is not worth it if my income is not matching their income. I agree with management at all levels and justice should be made. But it never is. And even with Dems in power. they just yell its the Repubs fault every time and the people believe it.

What you libbies fail to understand:
1- minimum wage is NOT intended to be used as full time pay and/or support a family.
2- minimum wage is to motivate one to get a skill set
3- minimum wage is paid to those that lack skills and are use for jobs where little to no skill/intillect is required

Assembly line operation requires very little skill sets and thus garner low wages.

You want good pay? Get a good education or training in needed skills for the job market.

I don't blame the workers. I blame the unions who became corrupted and did the same with the workers. It is more complicated then what you wrote. there are many jobs that need unions and there are many unions that have have Americans suffering for their selfishness. You better read and understand every thing that you see in this nation and how much it costs. There are people who work at wal mart who do several times more work then men and women who are in unions in other jobs who do several times less. Over the decades as taxes, fees, fines and everything else rose this has now come to a head in many areas and we still have many more to go. when the pensions ares stolen like the wealth of many Americans the last four years perhaps the people will wise up then.

Yes bring back the good jobs. For what so you lazy union bums can drive another business to extinction? The lazy union losers who believe that low production is a form of job security all the while demanding more and more money from their employers.
The bums at Hostess got what they deserved.

The Unions are stil trying to sabotage Wal Mart by callng for a walk out Friday, Black Friday. If I had a Wal Mart I would take out a full page ad tomorrow saying, "Now hiring (in big letters), Wednesday, 11-21. Taking applications from 10 am to 1 pm" Then I would replace, every one who made trouble. Do the Unions not know their Messiah has a 8% unemployment record. People are standing in line looking for jobs. This is not the time for people to say when they will work or they might be replaced in a heartbeat.
Here's hoping they hurt China-Mart's sales badly, since Wal-Mart is bad for America and always has been. They demolish family businesses, hurt overall employment, bust unions, block living wages, and treat employees like crap. And they sell cheap crap from China, hurting our balance of trade and sending manufacturing jobs overseas.

Thugs like you of course hate workers and want only wage slaves; that's just your nature, you're a Rightie and a reTHUGlican. But many of us support Wal-Mart workers in their quest for better pay and working conditions.

If you go to Wal-Mart on Thanksgiving, you're a traitor. Please self-deport, do us all a favor.
