Rand Paul: Unemployment Benefits Extension Would Be A 'Disservice' To Workers

Rand Paul: Unemployment Benefits Extension Would Be A 'Disservice' To Workers

“We can pay the 25 billion by canceling some of the wasteful militarily spending Paul and the Republicans so love”

“Oh BullChit! The last 30 years wages have been stagnated for the workers while the top dogs gorged themselves on what they decided to no longer pay to those workers. The cost of living keeps going up but wages don't and the ability of working people to afford anything has dwindled to where millions barely get by the rent, utilities, food, gas and insurance. We lost the work hard and get ahead way of things when employers said they didn't owe workers anything but a paycheck. Today you work hard and make your boss extra they don't reward you, they tell you the extra wasn't enough and you should be earning them extra as part of your job to begin with. You deserve no raise or reward for your extra hard work but they will let you keep your job, for now. Capitalism has been adulterated by greed and the only way many see achieving any equality is the way you describe.”

“I laughed at Scott walkers commemt. He said he would have to rely on a government that can't get a website up and running to send him the medicaid money.
Well Scott, they seem to do a pretty damn good job of getting that money out to the states right now. They also do a good job of distributing SS funds, road repair funds, farm subsidies, and a whole host of other resources out to Wisconsin.”

No military protection from US, no school funds, no highway or other infrastructure money, no S.S. income, no medicare or medicaid. The list goes on and on. Oh, and those businesses that stay there...how about we throw a tariff on your products if you want to export to the US.”

“Your location has more to do with your Latino minority status, and your state government does everything in its power to stifle the vote of said minorities.
Questions...is the Texas Latino population greater than California? And, in terms of population percentage is it greater than other states? I ask because I do not know.”

“Texas is one of 5 "minority/majority" states, the others being Hawaii, Washington DC, California, and New Mexico.

Geography plays a role in all demographics, California included.  Are you saying that California does not share a border with Mexico?

But unlike California, Hispanics will be the majority ethnic group in the State within just a few years.  Hence, Battle Ground Texas

My point is simple.  TEXAS IS NOT A MONOLITH. ”

“I agree with what your saying. IT is a people problem. And that is my issue.
My brother is a rottweiler guy. He bred them for many years. great dogs. friendly and gentle.
People used to walk to the other side of the street when he would walk them, not knowing how sweet they were.
 
I am sure that you are right about pits. My concern is about training and socializing. Whether they are rescued or not, until I see more people with them who are able to control them and have them well trained I will keep my dog (and my hand) away. Sorry.
