“"I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." - Pres. G.W. Bush, 3/13/02.
"Good evening. Tonight, I can report to the American people and to the world that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of al Qaeda, and a terrorist who's responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent men, women, and children.

“Yes, thank you!! Direct quotes bring home the point matter-of-factly!!”
“Companies could pay their workers more, but that would cut into the huge salaries they pay their CEOs. So never gonna happen without a lot of public shaming and an effective boycott.”

“Shame - nope! Make them pay the treasury back with a fine. Money is the only thing these j3rks care about and the only thing that will make them take notice.”

“Some companies do pay their workers more money with great success, because.....
wait for it...
it's good business, and makes good economic sense.
Costco pays a lot more than Sam's Club.
Far less turnover.
Low, low prices.
...and what exactly do the middle class and working poor employees do with their higher wage? Simple, they spend it, driving up demand for middle class products. Companies then hire more workers as a last resort to keep up with growing demand. In other words, the companies are better off in the long run. Just look at Costco.”

“74% of Americans disapprove of the GOP. Basically, everyone who isn't a Republican disapproves of them. It can go a bit higher as moderate Republicans become disgusted by the Tea Party, but it doesn't matter how high it goes because the Tea Party doesn't care what anyone else thinks.”
“They can't win, so they change the rules. How childish!”

“You see that as childish?
I see it as a major threat to our government and democracy.
Look to red states with majorities and super majorities and there's nothing childish about the way the GOP is jamming unconstitutional abortion and other laws through. They continually flaunt refusing to allow democrats even a voice in the process for the record as is supposed to take place.
Lottle kids don't scare me, this does when money backed groups are writing legislative plans for them that they don't have the brains to create themselves.”
