What about the problem that we are seeing with Walmart
The Top executives are bringing in 100s of millions each.

The employees need Government Assistance to survive, like food stamps, Medicaid, etc.
Hence, the Taxpayers are subsidizing the Walmart executives.

Shouldn't Walmart be Forced to pay higher wages?
so at least the employees can make enough to live without Gov. assistance.

I could see the minimum wage based on age, 18 and younger, one minimum, and one for above that age.

Actually, it's paying higher taxes to support the Waltons. They are the biggest welfare chislers in the country.

Interesting article here: http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2013/06/07/2120711/walmarts-low-wages-cost-taxpayers-millions-each-year/

I would love to hear from the "raising the minimum wage would kill America" people on that one.

aren't you just "dying" to know why gm employees might want to use "rolling sarcophagus" in an email?

^^^^^^


OOooooo, OOoooooo, me first! Is it because they want to maximize profit by making shoddy autos, but don't want easy litigation against them because their own engineers used phrases like "death trap" and "kavorkianesque" in describing their products? Naw, must be something else, like liberals, err I mean libtards, trying to police the world...

**It was must-see TV.
**

Idaho's May 14 GOP gubernatorial debate, aired on Idaho Public Television and bringing together incumbent Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter and challengers Sen. Russ Fulcher (R-Meridian), Harley Brown and Walt Bayes, became a viral sensation on May 15, ultimately landing on more than a few talk shows—even through the morning of May 16.

The undisputed stars: Brown and Bayes, both perennial candidates for a range of state offices.

From Idaho’s “counter-culture” newspaper, The Boise Weekly:
http://www.boiseweekly.com/CityDesk/archives/2014/05/16/fulcher-gubernatorial-debate-a-mockery-of-the-republican-party-and-of-idaho

Leather-clad and sporting fingerless gloves, Brown's remarks have already become meme-worthy: "I've got a Master's degree in raisin' hell," "I'm about as politically correct as your proverbial turd in a punch bowl," and his summation of the field of candidates, "A cowboy, a curmudgeon, a biker or a normal guy."

Bayes, meanwhile, hewed to his oft repeated, Biblically studded campaign stance of making abortion illegal, thundered against "Eastern idiots" making lands policy, and bragged that he'd shot and killed a wolf while the species was still on the endangered species list. Beyond statements about his time in jail for home-schooling his 16 children and a closing statement about the risks of nuclear contamination, his most quotable quote: "Half the Republican Party is Democrats, and half the Democrats are communists."

The 57-minute-long debate was instant fodder for mockery, with mashups appearing on YouTube and news sources from Gawker to the Washington Post picking up on the story.

Not everyone is laughing, though—especially Fulcher, who took to his campaign site to decry Otter's insistence that Brown and Bayes be included in the event as a thinly veiled attempt to drown him out.

Hey Bookworm...


Instead of cutting, pasting, and running--i.e., not be a cowardly dickhead--why don't you engage?



Otherwise why should anyone bother reading your cut and paste diatribes?

barry's definition of accountability:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfVjGki-gB8


i'm so mad about the problems revealed by our investigations i'm ordering another investigation into these problems to figure out exactly how mad i should be about these problems that i'm so mad about and when i find out from these investigations exactly how mad i'm supposed to be about the problems i'm so mad about then i'll know how mad i'm supposed to be about these problems that i'm so mad about...in the meantime, carry on

poll: how long before somebody in the administration refers to the va scandal as a "distraction"

I'm not sure I understand what constitutes internet cowardice. No one responds to Bookworm's posts, even though they are sourced and relevant, but somehow Bookworm is the coward?

Before I knew what bookworm is I opened a couple of his links. They either were not relevant to his post or actually contradicted what he was saying.

Open his link, I bet it has nothing to do with green energy.
