Excuses to raise prices and outsource? Cost ot materials to make the product, regulations, OSHA, EPA, training, federal taxes, state taxes, local taxes, property taxes, liablity insurance, product insurance, and so many more things cost money... One other thing, the late, famous Paul Harvey said many times: "Corporations don't pay taxes, people pay taxes."
Please explain how fiscal conservatism puts wealth in the hands of a few? It seems to me, the more taxes I pay the more government spends. It also means I have less to spend. IF I make a dollar, should I give 10% to government, 20, 30, 50, 70, or should it be 90%, as it was when JFK took office in 1961? Another question: Is it okay for the federal government to waste my / our tax dollars?
and Illinois, Chicago, Detroit, Newark, Philly, New York state, New York city, LA, San Fran, San Jose, and so many more... Detroit is a perfect example of NO fiscal conservatisms at work...
So Obama will try to pass his budget by Executive Order? Might be fun to see him try to justify that EO...
2 + 413 = 415 total votes.... Yet, there are 435 congressmen... Where are the other 20? I often add up the votes, to see if everybody showed up for 'WORK'... people get sick, people die, people have family obligations, etc... and I know my own employer has attendance problems... but I don't make $174,000 per year.... I do want a raise, at least $1 per hour... but my annual pay will still be less than 1/4 of ANY congressman... and I get around 20, 8 hour vacation days per year, with 9 paid holidays... Still way less than our congressmen and senators... and YES, they do work outside of the Capitol building... YES, they do stand in front of groups of people, answer questions, take verbal abuse, and see the anger of the people they serve... That said, it's their job description... they ASKED for the job... I think we need to ask, where are those 20 who didn't show up for the vote... They need to be at work, just like me... just like you....
Loved the Occupy video! Thanks!
Why do we need a national health care plan, like other nations on this planet? Why do we need to be like other nations? As moms and dads have asked their children for decades, 'If Johnny jumps off the bridge do you have jump off the bridge?' The US of A is a very unique nation. Being unique is a good thing. And if health care is a problem, let's find unique ways to fix the problem, without destroying the good parts of the system we have. If you have a flat tire, do you fix the tire, buy a new tire, buy 4 new tires, or buy a new car? ObamaCare is buying a new car. If you want health insurance for those who have a need, then write a law that addresses that specific need and leave those who have what they want and can afford, alone.
hey... your comment to Comrade Meth could have been better... more info as to why his thinking was all wrong... otherwise, not as angry as last week... kinda like the anger, sometimes...
I don't see Chicago... didn't they manage to murder some 400-500 people last year, many of them kids? And then all of the people injuried in other shootings? And as Jerry55 mentions below, a BIG Union town...
Hmmm... you forgot Velcro... and the very first transistor, was invented in 1947, by 3 guys who worked for Bell Labs, a divison of AT&T... Semiconductors, are millions of transistors, layered on silicon, if I read the defiinition correctly... As for Patent Protection, that has been a 'right' for lack of a better word, since the Consititution was passed in 1787(? and correct me, if I am wrong, on the signing date and the opening date of the patent office-but it's over 200 years...)... Ben Franklin and his bi-focals, among the first patents... As for nuclear power, that is more of an off shoot of the Manhatten Project... Computers of various sorts, were used in WWII also... IBM, Univac, and some others... Otherwise, good post...
