Wow, you seem to really hate women, man. I hope you're not married, but somehow I doubt it.
As a deluded class warrior, you have a big problem with the American working class making a living wage, proportionate to the wealth their labor creates. This has nothing to do with Obama dictating anything from the top down. As history shows, the working man's and union movement arose from the bottom up, and demanded such things as that when they died in the coal mines, they would not be tossed aside like a piece of garbage while the accumulation of capital for the heartless rich continued. Workmen's comp, decent wages, etc., were not given to us by our "betters" but were won through the struggles of working Americans. It is time to remember where we came from and reject the war of the rich against the rest of us.
The difference between a Union and a non-union job: a greater share of the wealth you create by your labor and expertise; a middle-class, family-sustaining wage that enables you to aspire to the American Dream for you and your children; health care and benefits that insulate you from the degradation and insecurity of poverty.
Why would any sane person wish the USA (except the greedy rich who, like Romney, make 6,000 dollars an hour by firing people) to race to the bottom and destroy our middle class by busting unions and replacing our middle class workers with desperate wage slaves?
An article in today's Times/Free Press indicates that Santorum is leading comfortably in Tennessee among likely Republican voters. What does this say about Tennessee, where Republicans are an overwhelming majority? Time for those who reject a medieval worldview or who oppose a theocratic state that oppresses women in the name of 'true religion' to get out?
It should be noted that Santorum had no problem with public schools while Pennsylvania taxpayers were footing the bill to send his kids to Western PA Cyber School. At the time, he was claiming that his primary residence was a two-bedroom bungalow in Penn Hills, a Pittsburgh suburb, when it was actually a grand McMansion outside Washington DC. He only turned to home-schooling his kids after he was outed by irate PA taxpayers and forced to pay back the tuition help his family had received through fraud.
Rolando said: "Google the stats; everywhere the citizens carry guns [legally], crime drops" and "the people living there [NYC} are either like animals or they live behind police-barred doors and windows."
I did Google to stats. The fact is that crime rates in NYC have fallen to record-low levels over the last decade, and are now less than half of those in Chattanooga. But when has the loony right and those people who make a religious fetish or idol of guns ever cared about facts?
Brokentoe, I agree, The Southern Baptists have completely discredited themselves by embracing hard-right hate politics. They feel completely righteous in their hate. No wonder Americans are rejecting Christianity in droves.
Time to legalize it. Much less harmful than alcohol and tobacco. The Obama administration has been much less 'big government' on this issue than than the Bush administration, but still, people are going to jail for something that is no crime at all. Free individuals should be able to make their own decisions about what they grow for themselves and smoke for themselves.
This is what "small government" and greed and indifference looks like. A glimpse of Newt Gingrich's America.
Conservative activist judges on the Supreme Court decreed that the Founders' 2nd amendment had nothing whatsoever to do with a "well regulated militia." Damn that inconvenient language in the US Constitution! So much for the constitutional originalism that the Right usually embraces.
Even so, the 5-4 activist majority decided that the individual right to gun ownership did not pertain to bringing guns to schools (like UTC) or in government buildings, etc.
Our Founding Fathers, who were above all men of the Age of Reason, would be rolling in their graves to learn that some 21st-century Americans, like you, were making a religious fetish of guns. How unreasonable.
It is contrary to the open and free educational mission of universities that they should become armed and militarized. Who knows how many professors might be shot by right-wing extremists who think the planet is only 6,000 years old.
