    The Nuclear Retaliation Association has been conceived to defend the sovereign right of every nation on the planet to engulf that planet in a hellish inferno. If you join today, we will waive the initiation fee and send you this bumper sticker: “Nuclear weapons don’t kill people. People kill people who don’t have nuclear weapons.” They’re going fast, people.

    The word seems to get less loud because Lisa’s hearing is tuning out. The conservatives haven’t done a thing for jobs in 20 years. The just want the money.

    No we have, but the democrats and liberals have made it their job to destroy jobs.

    How about an original thought rather than a quick re-spin…
    Make peace, NOT war…..My “original” thought.
    Non-lethal defense.
    Build, do not destroy.
    It can be a wonderous future, if WE desire.

    To TRY to tell the truth , I do not think that Liberals nor Conservatives know how to “create” jobs…
    Strangely enough, if they were to work together, maybe some jobs would result…
    That our jobs have gone overseas is obvious, but why have they ?
    Wages are a huge factor, and CEO compensation..
    Reduce these, both of them, to where they should be….
    We have tried to reduce one, but not the other.
    Why ?
    Is there anyone here who can discuss this ?

    Actually, yes. I’ll address both for you.

    1) The reason jobs went and stay overseas is twofold. Cost of labor and repatriation taxes. Our cost of labor, especially with the idiotic idea of raising minimum wage to $9, is what is incentivizing the exportation of jobs and importation of raw materials or finished goods. Why pay an American (after all is said and done) 15 an hour (that’s minimum wage after taxes, etc) when you can pay an Indian worker 15 a day? Or a Chinese laborer 10 a day? It’s pure economics. That’s the reason our steel industry went belly-up: it was cheaper to ship the raw material to China, have it smelted there, and have the finished materials brought back by ship (including losses from containers falling overboard) than it was to pay $40 per hour for steel workers (40 is after taxes and other stuff).

    The repatriation taxes is an issue because businesses have to pay taxes in overseas profits to their host countries, and then pay another 35% when they bring those leftover profits home. Why on earth would they do that when they can just build more productivity overseas? They have 2 trillion dollars overseas waiting to be used, and they aren’t bringing it back here because of the predatory taxation the federal government imposes.

    As to the CEO compensation, I’m actually in pseudo-agreement with you there. Do I believe one man is worth 50 million a year? No. But I do not agree that the government should dictate how many any one person is paid; it should be based on the stockholders, the consumers, and the general public. Government has no place in defining what a business can pay its owner.

    Not being a liberal and running a small biotech business, I have created jobs. I don’t live in my mom’s basement, I am responsible and I work hard, but I am supposed to help pay for the idiot son who decided to take “Ancient Lesbian Belgian Studies” in college and wonder why they aren’t getting 100K a year.

    Why then was the nation hemorrhaging 700,000 jobs per month at the end of Ws term, then reversed to job creation?

    timeweaver, if you think the austerity measures are job killers….look at the social mess in Greece and you can see what will happen here. You can not keep spending beyond your means to support it. If the economy collaspes because of Dumbama, then you will see austerity beyond your ablity to even fathom. You liberals need to quit living if la la fairy land.

    And to further reply to your intense and obvious stupidity from earlier this morning, you claimed in another post that the Congressional Research Service is a biased organization and not a government organization. The Congressional Research Service is a government organization under the Library of Congress. From their web site at Congressional Research Service

    "The Congressional Research Service (CRS) works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for nearly a century.

    CRS is well-known for analysis that is authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has 24/7 access to the nation’s best thinking.

    Jeez that was so easy, you just can’t handle the truth. Go back and click the link tool, read the material from yesterday, it clearly refutes your blathering.
