Those people don't read the numbers, there are machines to do that work. What they do is press a button if the machine gets jammed. Look I have no problem with people making a decent wage. However when you can do whatever you want on the job including drinking and doing drugs, and not have to worry about being fired because of union protection then there is a problem. I agree that almost all of the "perks" that we enjoy were brought about by unions. But now the unions have become part of the problem and are no longer part of the solution. I am not saying that the unions have caused all the problems but a fair amount of the problems can be put on the unions. When the unions use the retirement contributions of the members to help get one of their buddies elected. It is a problem. When democratic representatives then say that we need to bail out the pension plans of the unions because they are under funded. It is a problem. I pay my employees as much as I possibly can and still stay in business and do right by my family.
I think he means our exalted ruling class which are mostly democrats. It is simply sad that you think that the democrats care about you at all. They see governmental a way to enslave the masses to keep their power.
For all you haters if you don't like Missouri then move. Illinois is about as,liberal as it gets I'm sure they would love you over there. I moved to Missouri about 10 years ago and love
Kinda hard to price them out when the government takes our tax dollars and uses it for these people to live on.
Sounds like some one ran a red light. If you are going to ride a bike in regular traffic you have to make smarter decisions. Running a yellow light isn't the best possible decision to make on a bike.
We surely can't recover by spending our grand children's inheritance. Adding more money to the deficit isn't the solution. More government isnt the solution. Having people take personal responsibility is a good starting point tho. When it is just you against the world things seem alot more simple. All this talk about ow the governs,nt is going to take care of,people from cradle to grave is just liberal utopia. When you add in the human element it is impossible. Hopefully if the right people are elected come fall we can stop the collapse. Heck it might be to late with all the race baiting that the democrats have been doing for the last 3 years.
God forbid that people in cars can use the highways to drive on. Wouldn't want to get in the way of people on bikes. I am sorry to hear about the person that was hit. But the fact of the matter is that these people are required to abide by the same rules of the road as motor vehicles. What probably happened was a person on a bike crossing lanes of traffic when a red light was showing and had nothing to do with the change rate of the light itself. That being said I have no problem with a uniform rule for length of lights, just don't think it is as big a concern as you have made it.
So are we going to act like these are the only buses that are being leased for political reasons? Or can we show a bit of integrity and see that the liberals do alot more bus leasing then the republicans ever thought about. Can we also adress the fact that the union was paying people to protest in the 99 rallies?
Most of the truly poor are taken care of by charities here in the US. Only in a world as twisted as the one we live in can someone be considered poor and have 2 tvs and video game consoles and govt subsidized housing. These people aren't poor financially but poor spiritually. They have been robbed of their will to take care of themselves by the system that is in plave to help them. Welfare was initially a way to help people up when they had fallen, now it is a way of life for too many people. But that is the way the liberals want it, a large portion of the populace whose very existance relies on Democrats being re-elected. I thought the emancipation proclamation ended slavery years ago. Now millions are shackled and they don't even know it.
You wouldn't understand, it and American thing.
