If there is a way to outsource his job to China he will be much safer with Romney.

I completely agree with you submitter. The union has spent all the money meant for this healthcare and retirement this guy is farked. He's farked now, and he'll be farked after the election. But it was his own doing.

that's the genius of the republican party: getting people whose interests you oppose to vote for you without hesitation. it's stockholm syndrome and mass hypnosis combined.

Uh...you do know that the union only negotiates with the company about the workers' healthcare, right? The company actually pays for the healthcare, they don't give the union money to purchase it. But, you know, don't let reality get in the way of what you believe or whatever.

Check.

So, for the record, everyone realizes that there's not one, monolithic "THE UNION", and that various unions have different levels of involvement in retirement packages (among other things), right? Some of them directly own and/or direct the management of the retirement fund and/or other benefits with the company just supplying the money, others are more on the order of simple negotiators as mentioned above.

Saying "unions don't manage the retirement fund" is like saying "Asians don't fail math classes", it's a generalization and not even a particularly bright or statistically supported one.

It's not so much that he supports the opposition. It's more that he supports anti-Americanism. As has been demonstrated numerous times before, the Republicanist Party holds anti-Americanism as one of its core principles. Additionally, why would somebody choose to vote for a "conservative" seeing as there has never, in the history of mankind, been a successful conservative civilization? Why would you vote for something that you know is a) anti-American and b) guaranteed to fail? Is it just team mentality? Is it a mental disorder? Should these anti-Americans be allowed to participate in our society? Or should we treat them as enemies of the American public?

Nope, but Republicans only cared about consulate protection after there was an attack and only so they could blame Obama for it. It's the same way the GOP only started to care about deficit spending when W was out of office and how they try their darnedest to blame 100% of it on the current president.

You should have ask him this.
If the owner of a company doesn't have any increased demand on the goods or services he supply, will he expand or hire anymore people?

Of course the answer for anybody with half a brain is no. And this is the reason why giving tax breaks to the rich doesn't lead to trickle down. Unless expansion will lead to more money for them, they won't do it.

However if you give tax breaks to the middle class, they will spend that money causing an increase in demand on goods and services which will cause business owners to increase staff and demand. That is another reason why during the recession their should have been more government hiring for things like teachers, cops, firemen, and infrastructure projects. Because putting money in the hands of the middle class is what leads to economic growth.

THIS ^^^^

8 ambassadors have died (at least that i have found on the wiki)

1950 Truman, Laurence A. Steinhardt (plane crash)
1968 LBJ, John Gordon Mein (murdered)
1973 Nixon you dolt, Cleo A. Noel, Jr. (murdered)
1974 Ford, Rodger Davies (murdered)
1976 Ford, Francis E. Meloy, Jr. (murdured)
1979 Carter, Adolph Dubs (murdered)
1988 Reagan, Arnold L. Raphel (plane crash)
2012 Obama, J. Christopher Stevens (murdered)



but the most recent one means something, more so than any other death that has ever occurred, even more that the deaths that occurred when we sent our men and women to invade a country that had nothing to do with terrorist attacks on our own soil.

I did not know there was a New Democrat party? When was it formed? Who is the party chairman? Did they have a convention? Did they nominate a candidate for the Presidency? If so, what states were they able to gather enough signatures to be put on the ballot? Is he going to debate the other third party candidates from the Green Party, Constitution Party, Reform Party, Libertarian Party, etc?

How could there have been a political party called the New Democrat party without me knowing about it? I follow political news quite closely.
