“Henry Ford realized that his employees were also his customers and paid them a wage that allowed them the type of life where they could afford a car. WalMart has twisted this same ideal - paying workers low wages without benefits and relying upon taxpayers to make up the difference. WalMart is finally feeling the karma brought on by their greed.”

“Looks too close to call for me - surprising that it was this close in the first place. Cucinelli is so far to the right and outspokenly so I would have expected him to lose by a much wider margin.”

“Just like when Microsoft puts out a new version of Windows - I'll wait until they work out the bugs before going on line. So they are having technical glitches? Big deal. How often do high tech companies have problems with their roll outs - and they are supposed to be the best in the business. And anyone remember the glitches that screwed up Facebook's IPO - or how about the Market Flash Crash - or the Knight Capital glitch that cost over $460 million? So much for the free market doing it better.”

“" . . . tacked the abortion regulations on to a bill targeting Sharia law."

Perhaps if these folks were adherent to the tenets of their own faith they would be secure enough to not meddle in the lives of others. Instead the GOP are liars, cheats and thieves who live in fear of boogeyman liars, cheats and thieves pushing their own agenda. Social conservatives are isolating themselves more every day. I look forward to their ultimate demise as a political party.”

“Congress can barely come together to name Post Offices - what made anyone think a grand bargain was possible? Not wanting to sound like Herman Cain here, but some of the legislative packages are getting out of hand. They try to encompass too much with a single bill that, between all of the amendments, mark-ups, and concessions, end up watered down into ineffectiveness. Keep it simple, handle smaller bills that are more effective with less junk and that actually have teeth. Those smaller bills would also make it easier to see where all our folks in DC are at - make them actually vote on everything.”

“Well, as I heard someone else say here the other day, they can work to name the same Post Offices, that they are working so hard to see closed down.

“Overall tax and regulatory burdens are at their lowest in decades. Healthcare costs are a product of the flawed business model of the insurance companies (they compete for investors in the open market and must constantly show greater profit to retain shareholders). Meanwhile, corporate profits and CEO pay have skyrocketed while cash reserves held off-shore total trillions. Individual greed and a lack of patriotism have hurt the average American worker more than any tax or regulation every could.”

im4mit on Jun 5, 2013 at 20:46:58

“the reason CEO pay has sky rocketed is because our Gov't keeps flushing printed dollars into our economy and companies are trading at like 50 times earnings giving the impression they are rich beyond belief ...our whole economy is held together with a bandaid and companies know this ... anyone with a brain knows how short lived this little bump in the economy is ...knowing this why would anyone hire ?? that 20 Trillion dollar debt and 100 trillion dollar unfunded liability lingers ”

“So the IRS is getting flak for giving additional scrutiny to organizations dedicated to the ideal that we should not be paying taxes by "profiling" the name of the organization. I'm sure these "victims" were the same folks who were ok with the extra scrutiny placed upon the Arab-looking fellow right after the Boston bombing - even though he turned out to be nothing more than a victim. I don't see what the IRS did as a problem - just them going after low-hanging fruit. There are far too many so-called non-profits out there abusing their status for personal and political gain. The IRS should be scrutinizing every political organization for fraud.”

“so,you should call yourself Simple Mind. The point is that the IRS went after the non-profits, the point is that in its very political fashion, it went after convervative non-profits only. If you do not see the problem with it, then I can't help you, but I am sure you would see it a s a problem the next time the GOP person is in power and the IRS goes after liberal non-profits. I am sure you would be the first one to comment on it.
As far as you linking the Boston bombing with a tea partiers in the most liberal city in America, I think you are really just projecting your own biases, without any substance.”
