The problem with news people is they have no real education. Say, a History degree. But they're darned proud to demonstrate that shortcoming as often as possible.

This just in: Fox "News" hosts are drooling fascist retards

Yeah.  China builds ghost cities to keep people employed.  A large percentage of the country is literally employed to do busy work in order to keep the peace.  Something tells me that the brain trust at The Five would shiat the bed if the government were paying people to build giant, empty  metropolii in the middle of the Dakotas.

A simplistic analysis that can barely adhere to the surface of the issue, leading to wildly incorrect conclusions?  From Fox News, no less?

Well slap my ass and call me "Sally."

Bolling has one son. I wonder if he would be willing to have his kid work for $1.00 an hour.

Oh and he's also Roman Catholic. Me thinks the Pope would slap this guy upside the head if they ever met.

Oh yes.  Take labor practice concept from China.  That's a great idea.  It'll be a boon to the Suicide Prevention Netting Company of Toledo, Ohio.


No one will ever accuse Eric of being a rational human being, he qualifies for neither.

"But what if they took six hours and it turned out that they were getting more productivity and they were doing a better job?" Beckel asked, once again pushing back.

Oh for fark's sake. Sure, go for that you assholes. You harp on and on about things like unions without actually knowing a single thing about how they came about. You take away the rights of the workers and they will rise up against you. You're trying so very very hard to be the frontline in the war on communism that you've been fighting since the 1900s. You take away those rights for workers, claim it as a win for capitalism and watch how quickly those workers rise up against you. You'll win the goddamn battle but you'll lose the war.

FTFA: "Those are government guys that are actually getting their hours cut back - which I agree with. I would pay all government workers not to work."

Ah, so you're a fan of this Congress then.


Also FTA: "It would be nice if we had that luxury," co-host Dana Perino answered. "But the baby boomers have made sure we are going to be tied to our jobs for the rest of our lives and not benefit from Social Security and Medicare like they did."

Did.. Did a small nugget of truth, however intentional, slip out of a Fox News Host's mouth?

Again FTA: Tantaros then criticized a new French labor agreement allowing for "autonomous employees" in the tech and consulting fields to disconnect from work communications after working 13-hour days.
"Who would hire someone that can shut off and [do] whatever they want after six o'clock?" she asked, not mentioning that that hour is not specified anywhere in the agreement.


fark you and your pretense. If I'm not scheduled or ON THE CLOCK, my job has no right to expect me to be available to them.

This guy really burns my ass for some reason. "Why are we looking to Europe, why not China!" Cause China's workforce policies are regressive and horrible? Boardering on slave labour, and pushing the workforce to the point of suicide to such a degree, they need to have safety nets on the side of the building?

But no lets work 14 hour shifts with 4 hours off all for pennies an hour. That sounds FANTASTIC. Why do we want to emulate Europe even though we have a better economy (Something that is debatable.)? Because their quality of life? Generally better than ours! We don't just want to make more money, we want to BE HAPPY.

Sorry, just got a little... aggravated there. How the hell do you even think that...? Be like China.,,

I'll bet that Rupert Murdoch would be willing to start this by dropping all of their salaries to $1.00 a week and make them work 14 hours a day. Let's see how that would go over then...

Well not to mention this asshole thinks that if corporations could pay what ever the fark they wanted that profits would soar. The reality is paying people a dollar an hour or hell a dollar a day would cause the value of everything to crash into the dirt. Suddenly that $3 gallon of milk is now only worth $.50 and nobody uses the internet, cell phones, or cars because we can't afford to spend money anything not survival related.

This is a brilliant idea if you want to have 1929 style crash of the economy.
 
2014-04-16 02:28:45 PM
Not shocked at all.  Look at India.  Look at Mexico.  This is what the Republican party wants.  An inexhaustible supply of dirt cheap labor.  Not for our benefit, of course, but because it'll allow the already disgustingly rich to get even richer.  That's why they've put so much time and effort into limiting the rights of workers to unionize.  That's why they've put so much time and effort into trying to legislate women to the level of breeding cattle.  It's why they've put so much time and effort into weakening our public education system.  It's not religious based, it's not pro-America based, it's profit based.  The people who have the biggest pull are the ones giving the Republicans the most dollars.  And that's not you or me.

What always gets me about these people when they say these things is that they don't seem to realize that they are working for a paycheck also. What is to stop their employer from deciding that they only need to be paid peanuts also? They for some reason think that they are special and don't realize if you can make one person work for peanuts, the same can be done with their job.
 
2014-04-16 02:29:10 PM
Big story in the news yesterday: rent in many cities is rising out of reach of workers.  Fox News solution: drop workers' wages.

Seriously, you blind f*ck, explain to me how that will help ANYTHING.  You can't buy f*cking gas to drive back and forth to work for $8/day (gross), much less afford food, housing, insurance, a car, clothing, anything else.  Our society is built around the car; there is not housing near most places of work that employ the bottom of the ladder types.

This man seems like he is simply pure evil, and yet there were no doubt thousands of viewers just eating this sh*t right up.  "Yeah, that's the ticket... Chinese labor practices, Chinese environmental regulations, let's be just like China!"

Either way, someone else is doing the thinking for him.  He'll probably take to it in no time.

2014-04-16 02:30:50 PM
What the fark do these talking heads do that contribute to American society? What product or service do they provide that is essential to America's success? Why does Eric Bolling deserve to get paid more than $1 a year?

"Some of the economies that are starting to kick our butt, those people work hard,"
"Why does America always want to adopt the policies of the people we beat?"
"They're basically announcing, 'Guess what? We're making it even harder for us to compete with you."


What competition between countries is he alluding to? GDP? GDP per capita? Manufacturing output? Imports vs exports? Average income? Happiness levels? Corporate profits?

Which competition(s) are we winning, which actually affect the average American, and which does the average American actually care about? Stop using vague concepts like "winning" and make a goddamn argument.

Tantaros then criticized a new French labor agreement allowing for "autonomous employees" in the tech and consulting fields to disconnect from work communications after working 13-hour days.

"Who would hire someone that can shut off and [do] whatever they want after six o'clock?" she asked, not mentioning that that hour is not specified anywhere in the agreement.

mcreadyblue: Well, SS and Medicare are unstable past 20 years and I don't hear the Democrats suggesting the age limits for both be raised to 70.


that's because that will just push it back out 20 years. Democrats have been pushing for getting rid of the cap of taxable income to more accurately reflect income these days and *poof* we're pretty fiscally secure.

...oh wait, you're just one of those people that don't like those greedy moochers getting hand outs from the government, aren't you?

I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night,
Alive as you and me.
Says I "But Joe, you're ten years dead"
"I never died" said he,
"I never died" said he.

"The Copper Bosses killed you Joe,
They shot you Joe" says I.
"Takes more than guns to kill a man"
Says Joe "I didn't die"
Says Joe "I didn't die"

"In Salt Lake City, Joe," says I,
Him standing by my bed,
"They framed you on a murder charge,"
Says Joe, "But I ain't dead,"
Says Joe, "But I ain't dead."

And standing there as big as life
and smiling with his eyes.
Says Joe "What they forgot to kill
Went on to organize,
Went on to organize"

From San Diego up to Maine,
in every mine and mill,
Where working men defend their rights,
It's there you'll find Joe Hill,
It's there you'll find Joe Hill!

I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night,
Alive as you and me.
Says I "But Joe, you're ten years dead"
"I never died" said he,
"I never died" said he.

They for some reason think that they are special and don't realize if you can make one person work for peanuts, the same can be done with their job.


They believe that they're special, that they earned their spot through gumption, moxie, pluck, and a bunch of other old-timey words, and that they're worth every penny.

Of course, they also think that graphic that shows various employees' wages - firefighters, cops, teachers, soldiers/airmen/Marines/sailors - as $15-16/hour and then asks "Why should burger-flippers make that much?" makes their point about "lazy entitled moochers", rather than making the Democrats' points that these employees should be able to collectively bargain for a better deal, and that their salaries are set by Legislatures just like the minimum wage is. (And the point that many low-wage jobs are set in relation to minimum-wage laws, meaning EVERYONE's going to see a bump over that 2-year raise.)

So, you know, adjust accordingly.
 
2014-04-16 02:37:28 PM
Why is it that your average idiot who believes this shiat thinks they will be at the top living the good life and not living a shiat life as slave labor.
Do they think that the only people that will make shiat for money and have no quality of life will be all the welfare cheats or something
Go ahead live in a country like China but the odds are not in your favor for benefiting from the system of treating workers like property.
