I don’t know why some are blaming the Texas floods on climate change. It’s just weather, and, while they may be the worst in recorded history, they don’t mean the climate is changing. The planet is just moving closer to the sun, but a volcano can fix it at any time.

“I doubt there’s any danger of employers refusing to hire unskilled workers at minimum wage. What you don’t seem to understand is that minimum wage jobs were created as a foot-in-the-door, stepping stone job. Times have changed and many people now work them permanently because they have no other choice.”

And who’s fault is that?? Hmmmm?

Did you not hear Michael Morrell, CIA Director for Bush, say last week that the CIA report he gave Cheney and Bush said there were NO WMD.? Morrell on TV last week was asked, “Then did Cheney lie?” Morrell would call him a liar on TV, but did say the CIA report said NO WMD in Iraq.
Hillary & all the other Democrats and Republicans who voted for the Iraq War used the info that Cheney and Bush told them. Morrell said it was not his job to correct the President or VP. Just deliver the report

If it had not been for pollution, we would never have had the Ninja Turtles. The government is trying to keep us from having the crime fighters we deserve.

The administration lied and misrepresented intelligence. It’s not some vent person saying this, it’s the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. They also said that the administration was fixated on Iraq and used 9/11 as a pretext for an invasion.

Just keep the EPA out of our lakes and streams. We sure don’t need them going around keeping people from dumping chemicals into the water. Chemicals are what made Peter Parker into Spiderman.

“In making the case for war, the Administration repeatedly presented intelligence as fact when in reality it was unsubstantiated, contradicted, or even non-existent. As a result, the American people were led to believe that the threat from Iraq was much greater than actually existed.”

Senate Select Committee on Intelligence leading up to the Iraq War Phase 2 report, 06/05/2008

People were for the war because they were lied to.

That same rule apparently doesn’t apply to the higher-ups. Whatever bonuses and raises they get NEVER increases the price of the product. How is that possible?

The L.A. increase in minimum wage is supposed to be implemented over the next 5 years. It isn’t an overnight increase. If it doesn’t work, they’ve got plenty of time to fix it.

Rick Santorum in his announcement for President just now said the first thing he will do is drive a stake in the heart of common core and help the injured war veterans.

FLASH to Rick- The U.S. would not have so many injured war veterans if Cheney had not lied about nuclear weapons in Iraq and Bush had not sent U.S. troops to Iraq to fight an expensive, useless war.

I really don’t even understand the motivation behind the vent complaining about the skin color of people featured in ads for advanced degrees. Were you a student at one of the schools who didn’t get picked to have his picture taken?

Ha Ha, they hire illegals and take out the taxes, and guess what they keep the money, can you imagine the chagrin of the workers, but alas better than making 2.50 an hour in Mexico at the Dodge truck plant.
