You forgot one biggie DTOM: China. Warmies never seem to discuss what to do about them.
Rhartman, if what you say about Henry Ford was true, then why did workers feel the need to unionize? I thought the lefties told us they had to form unions because the big bad companies were sticking it to the workers.
...meaning the cost is passed along to the consumer, which means the consumer will have less money to spend. Think about this: What good does it do to pay someone $10.00/hour to make a burger, if that person then has to turn around and spend $10.00 to buy a happy meal for his kid?
Interesting argument. I believe it's very similar to the argument that if a burglar broke out all the windows of all the stores on the street it would actually be good for business, because glass makers and installers would get lots of business and would spend that extra money. What your argument ignores is that the extra money to pay the workers has to come from SOMEWHERE, and that somewhere is usually in the price of the product...
ToccoCinco, exactly what would you suggest republicans (who only have 1/2 of congress) do about it? Shut the government down again? I can't stand that all of this is happening either, however, until Rs control both houses of congress and the presidency (or at least a veto-proof majority of congress) the R's aren't going to be able to do much of anything. And shutting the government down again in all likelihood isn't going to get more Rs elected next November. If you'll look at my previous posts you'll see that I'm about as conservative as they come, but as I see it the only options the R's have are to shut down the government again, or give the Dems enough rope to hang themselves.
Sells lemonade for $5.00/cup, and cookies for a nickel. Customer buys cookie, takes a bite, and spits it out, saying "this tastes like shi__! Then replies to customer "it is! Wanna buy some lemonade?"

TX, I know exactly how you feel. The 'boys were my team back when Landry was coaching and Staubach was quarterback. They're still my team, but I watch much more passively now.

I used to be one of those people that watched football and cursed at the tv, threw things, then stormed away mad when my team lost. Then it occurred to me that this was 22 guys that I'd never even met, playing a GAME, and that regardless of who won my life wasn't going to change one iota. I still watch it, but I don't let it upset me anymore.

One part of me agrees with you OS, but another part of me can't help but wonder how this is different from a photographer not being able to refuse to photograph a same-sex marriage. Remember, the photographer was sued, and lost. The apeal was lost too, if I recall correctly.

I'm skeptical of this. Here's what I suspect was talked about in the meeting: "...ok, so aftwer we leave this room we're going to leak to the press that we're all seething mad at Obama, even though we're in lock step with him. That'll give us distance from him next November." I wouldn't even be surprised that Obama was the one that suggested they do this.
