No non-citizen should ever wear a US military uniform. If a person puts on one of our uniforms to fight for us they should become a citizen that day and retain it if they earn an honorable discharge. Period.

If the democrats are smart they won't bring immigration reform to the floor until 2015 and then press for what they want. The republicans will be staring down the barrel of the 2016 election and be faced with a stark choice - alienate their base or alienate latino voters.

Our country is screwed when 12 million non-resident , non-voting humans become a major influence in our national policy via presidential elections and other state politics ...Does anyone else see the lunacy of the immigration fiasco...? There is already a path to citizenship and letting non-residents serve in our military is more of the cheap-labor insourcing that has become so popular with the American chamber of commerce...Both political parties are tripping over each other with the immigration issue trying to exploit the illegals for their own political gain while the sore continues to fester...The illegals have become pawns while America tries to re-invent the wheel that was once called the middle class...Shameless stupidity...

Because it is the party line the Repukes want to blame evil unions for the great twinkie debacle.
They are as usual wrong.

Hostess Brands acknowledged for the first time in a news report Monday that the company diverted workers' pension money for other company uses.
baker told The Wall Street Journal that money taken out of workers' paychecks, intended for their retirement funds, was used for company operations instead. Hostess, which was under different management at the time the diversions began in August 2011, said it does not know how much money it took.

"It's not a good situation to have," Hostess CEO Gregory Rayburn told the WSJ.

"Whatever the circumstances were, whatever those decisions were, I wasn't there," Rayburn added. As the founder and owner of Kobi Partners, a restructuring advisory firm, Rayburn was appointed acting CEO in March 2012.

Hostess Brands, which filed for bankruptcy for a second time in January, started liquidating its operations in November after the bakers' union refused to take another pay cut and went on strike. The liquidation will leave about 18,000 workers without jobs.

In November, a judge approved Hostess' plan to pay $1.8 million in bonuses to 19 executives, according to CNBC. Rayburn declined to take a bonus but also avoided a company-wide pay cut that he imposed, Hostess told HuffPost.

i think we can all agree that the tax code should be simplified:

personally, i'm also in favor of a constitutional amendment banning any bill longer than the constitution itself (17 pages); i could accept the civil rights bill (65 pages)

Sounds like a TEA party statement.

WE accept what WE want, and nobody should have anything WE don't want, and WE can change the context of what WE want at any time WE want.

This thread was started on October 19th, 2011. There are now 39,978 posts to it, which works out to 95.87 posts/day, with at least one each day worth reading. Today, however, is an exception - it's already 2:13 PM, which is to say that the day is more than half done, and there are only nine posts so far. (Ten, counting this one.) What's with you politards lameasses today, anyway, that you can't get Craig over the magic 40,000?

"Right to Work" = right to work for less, and with less rights as a worker

race to the bottom, the Republican agenda

Why are Republicans always taking rights and freedoms away from people, and giving them to Corporations and the slave masters
