the one and only executive action he's taken that i approve of. . .
Special treatment for a scoff-law; in keeping with the rest of his family.
And afterward, the protesters gathered for lunch at -- you guessed it -- McDonald's!
In all seriousness, the only way that the situation will change is if we, as consumers, steer our money to restaurants that can verify higher wage rates. Just as with small, local businesses, which sometimes pay lower wages and offer worse working conditions than Wal-Mart (because the owners are not knowledgeable about employment law, etc.), it's hard to make a rational claim about a good alternative to McDonald's.
The take-away? There's a dark side to the dollar menu.
Excellent article. Khalsa is a SOB.
Just heard that Iran does not think Obama understands what is in the bill.
That is troublesome already.
I'm sure obama's israeli masters are proud of him.
Typical South ; doing what they want and never mind the law, reality or anything else.
A very sad and disturbing news this is, what was going on thru that young man's head. I bumped into Gus Deed's bio here http://dailyentertainmentnews.com/tv/austi…
I will take the apologies I have coming to me, especially from the people who labeled me as racist. This whole fiasco was nothing but one big boondoggle from beginning to end which is hopefully in sight. Next time you want to elect someone who makes you 'feel good', how about considering his/her ability and NOT the color of the skin?
only one or two small problems
to do this
federal laws need to be changed
then HHS regulations need to be changed
so that state laws can be changed
so then state insurance regulations need to be changed
and that all has to happen in 7 days
so that insurance laws of 30 days notice can be followed
Nancy Puke Pelosi and her 20 million dollars has led to a massively destructive insurance bill
that has cost 1 million Californians already their insurnace.
She charges people to make medical advances.
She has raised our premiums 3 X
and she had the gall today to come out and say her massively repressive and dangerous health care bill is good.
She is a nose bleed idiot with so many face jobs
that she has made our girls bully
our city a train wreck
and those in her llittle tiny district - you know - those zillionaires who take our views, clog our cities with their cars
Oh Yes Pelosi
as her stock portfolio soars
and Californias hurt due to her dangerous non read anti Amerian health care bill.
The POTUS< Sibelius and Potus and Reid
Dangerous People who do not care about our state
need to be recalled.
Go to the website and sign in, tovarich. Never mind it's totally messed up, you just have to BELIEVE!
The words 'obama' and 'honor' are totally exclusive.
Still feeling good, America? Because THIS is what you fools voted for!
Bring it, liberals!
A democrat with some true vision....but still not my favorite person.
NSA doing all of this and they want Snowden's skull on a platter? Cannot tell the difference who's the bad guy here. And Feinstein wants him to just call her office. Whistleblowers don't just pick up the phone and call some high level in Washington somewhere.
snowden is just tip of iceberg. contractors tend to snoop around. he was coy enough to get other people's passwords, which is basically dumb. in any gov't agency, employees or non, go around looking to snitch on someone they suspect. suspicion is very high in any gov't climatic workplace. dedicated gov't clones set the trend by putting someone on "suspicion." be surprised this goes on all the time.
Change you Obama idiots can believe in. Obama commtting treason against our country just like Bush did, and you obama idiots continue to s him off.

Since 1982 the upper ten percent as to individual wealth in the U.S. have had their income double. During the same time period, the real income of the middle class has not kept up with inflation. As to corporate wealth, middle size and large corporations are making record profits. One-fourth of middle size and large corporations paid no federal income taxes last year. The effective corporate tax rate has been 12 percent for this group. Last year U.S. corporations contributed only ten percent to federal tax revenues. Individuals contributed the rest.
Last year U.S.corporations held 1.46 trillion dollars off shore. When a U.S. corporation ships money and jobs overseas, the foreign profit received from the subsidiary is not taxable under U.S. tax laws if the profit is kept off shore. If the foreign profit is taxed by the host country, that tax is deductible from the company’s U.S. tax liability.
James Henry, a former chief financial officer with the McKenzie Company, determined from a study that U.S. citizens and residents hold 12 trillion dollars in off shore bank accounts. If income from the money is not reported to the IRS, the loss of tax revenues would be around 600 billion dollars. If one multiplies 5 percent (return on the money) times 12 trillion dollars, the result is 600 billion dollars. If you figure a 35 percent tax rate on the 600 billion, the result is 210 billion. The Statute of Limitation allows the IRS to go back three years resulting in a 600 billion dollar tax recovery. Of course not everyone hides money off shore to avoid paying taxes. Tax cheat money is easier to recover now. The U.S. has agreements with almost all tax haven counties that their banks will cooperate with U.S. authorities if a criminal complaint is filed in the United States. A criminal complaint requires probable cause. Probable cause is a low standard to meet. It requires that there is evidence more likely than not that a crime has been committed. Money is easier to trace because under U.S. law, when ten thousand dollars or more is transferred out of the U.S. by an individual, it must be reported to the IRS. Foreign banks are not suppose to accept U.S. bank funds when the transfer of ten thousand dollars or more has not been reported. Splitting up the ten thousand dollars to avoid reporting and making several deposits is illegal. Also, many off shore banks have high initial deposit requirements such as 80 thousand dollars.
My book contains several chapters on federal government finances and taxes. I have two videos on U tube. One is titled “U.S. Citizens Hide Money in Swiss Banks”and the other is titled ” The Right Wing, the Good, the Bad, and the Crazy.” The Swiss video has some beautiful scenery.
Slanted headline. Nowhere in the President's remarks today did he "blame Republicans." Look at the transcript. This headline is totally off point. Even when you read the story, the word "Rebublican" doesn't show up until paragraph 15 and that's as a reference to Rep. Paul Ryan - R, WI.
