so what d'you got, little girl?
I constantly give your willfully blind azz examples of how naked emperor barock is. Go to the international news sites in Israel, Egypt, France or Germany. barock has got both our former friends and enemies pissed at us.

You fail to ever give examples of what he's done well... because he hasn't.

Your faux attempt at accuracy by asking people to provide clear and verifiable facts is laughable.

You ever watch a jay carney press briefing? There's an experiment in word definition.

so that is a big zero on anything to back up what i already called your obvious bullshit claim?? really? not even an attempt?

i made no claim as to anything he's attempted. hell, i never even voted for the guy..you, on the other hand, made some very specific allegations which any reasonable and ratiuonal person would have seen outright as bullshit and i called you on it...

what did you do? you ran the mongrel bitch you are...tail tucked tight between your definitely not tight legs... kind of looked like a toothpick stuck in Carlsbad cavern..but the concept is there...you ran like the proven little lying bitch you are...

The PARENTS of the dead guys said they were abandoned. I don't enjoy any part of it. I don't enjoy the fact that our brave men aren't getting their Medals, nor do I enjoy America-hating traitors like you.

The sanctions that barock is lifting is what is working (barely), and the Iranians are about to get a bomb. barock has turned arab spring to winter by golfing from behind.

And I did forget to mention the minimum wage has not even kept to being close with inflation. I lived on minimum wage early in life, no car, but rent, food, clothes and still could buy records. As in some disposable income left.
I don't know how you managed that.

I was working for about a $1.00 ($4.45 hrly) over minimum wage in 1984. I had a 3 room rental with free cable, but all other utilities. No car payment. I worked a minimum of fifty hours a week, fifty five hours when it was offered, and I was barely making it, like scraping my checking account down to single digits every month. I drove to work and back home, that was it, because I couldn't afford gas. Hand washed my clothes because I couldn't afford the laundromat. I ate pasta until it was coming out of my ears and brown bagged a cheap lunch. Disposable income? None.

I don't think you're too much older than I am...you must have had an incredibly cheap rent.

My husband was also working above minimum wage, but in 1977, all he could afford was a room that he rented.

..........Yes, the room and no car, I was to young to have one. At todays prices, this is not possible. With jobs being scarce and those with limited skills, working 60-70 hours a week is all they get. Split between two jobs so both are part-time with no real benefits. These are the people that should have a living wage.

WASHINGTON, DC - Almost 6 million young people are neither in school nor working, according to a study released Monday.

That's almost 15 percent of those aged 16 to 24 who have neither desk nor job, according to The Opportunity Nation coalition, which wrote the report.

Other studies have shown that idle young adults are missing out on a window to build skills they will need later in life or use the knowledge they acquired in college. Without those experiences, they are less likely to command higher salaries and more likely to be an economic drain on their communities.

..........Now these would be the people to pole about their thoughts on the future. How many are expecting to win the lottery, can you dance, the voice, have you got talent or marry their success? These are a lot of the answers being presented on T.V. for years as well as soldier of fortune, prostitute, drug dealer, theif and hit man.

all the facts show that no one left in Benghazi. over thirty were rescued. how do you rescue some and leave some behind?

you are a grave dancer and obviously you enjoy it as every single attempt of yours to show some scandal in Benghazi has been proven false time and time again. yet you keep posting what you know to be lies...

we actually have a deal to actually inspect iranian enriching sites so they cannot enrich uranium enough to make a bomb.

you really have no idea what you are talking about, do you?

you are the worst kind of "citizen" and i use that term lightly, you certainly do not deserve it.

Just more indications that this country is drowning in a sea of stupid. Unfortunately for those of us who are able to make a living and support our families, these unmotivated individuals have been led to believe that it is societies responsibility to help shoulder their burden,... even if they do not want to shoulder any of it themselves. Hence the skyrocketing food stamp enrollments and the whiners expecting wages that they did not earn nor are qualified for.

Fantastic. I'm you have a good job and suffer no debt.

Count your blessings and show some kindness to those who are less fortunate. All we ask for is economic security that can lead to a better life.

I was reading the Washington Post this morning and came across an article about corporations buying back shares to increase stock value. Profits are higher than ever. But instead of investing in research, hiring more workers or giving raises to current workers, corporations are buying back shares to make their top shareholders even richer.

With that type of mindset where shareholders come first, we'll never get this economy back on track. We need more state intervention than ever to correct our economy.

well, the record levels of food stamp users is because we had a record recession...

it is a good program. it helps many people who have lost their jobs and are getting by on one of the lower paying jobs that are the first to return after such a huge economic hit.(yes, there are some people who use this program as a way of life, also...)

just keeping the facts straight...

Well Joe you just demonstrated again why you are failing in life.

First economic security is the responsibility of the individual (I know that this is disappointing to you) not that of a corporation or the government. You lead a better life by creating it for yourself, not by demanding that a corporation or government "give" it to you. It's called "EARNING" it.

Second the reality of a corporation is that "SHAREHOLDERS DO COME FIRST", since they are the ones who supplied the financial backing to create the corporation. The fact that you believe that the broom pusher should be at the top of the corporate concern rather than the shareholders clearly demonstrates that you know nothing of business. This is just another example as to why you are a failure.
