uglyass, What is a fair wage? Does everyone need a $500,000 house and a $50,000 vehicle or a $50,000 house and a $5,000 vehicle? Kind of like the school teacher argument about pay, how much would be enough for you to quit asking for raises?

If successful corporations with obviously huge profits would pay their employees a fair wage the tax payer wouldn't be subsidizing them with food, medical and housing for their employees. I say pay a living wage and end corporate welfare.

I guess I'd be more ok with all the food stamps Barry Obamboozler is handing out if he would just put his picture on them. Come on, Barry. Obamacare is a total failure. No legacy there for you. You REALLY want to leave a legacy, Barry? Put your face on the Food Stamp and take ownership of your REAL record. A RECORD 48 MILLION Americans now surviving on YOUR signature program.

mmm mmm mmm, Food Stamp President.

oldman "Food stamps are a perfect example of corporate welfare."

So you're saying your Progressive Demorat Party supports more corporate welfare. Duh... Add that to Barry Obamboozler's $85 BILLION quantitative easing corporate welfare that's driven stock portfolios and executive salaries through the roof... Whatever brings in the campaign kickbacks, I guess... LOL

Food stamps are a perfect example of corporate welfare. Raise the minimum wage so full time workers are not eligible for food stamps. Tax payers should not continue to subsidize company's bottom line.

Do NOT do as we do - From the Daily Caller: “Just because lawmakers want businesses to pay more for entry-level workers, doesn’t mean they are willing to do so themselves.

According to a new study by the Employment Policies Institute (EPI), only four percent of the 210 lawmakers who pledged their allegiance to a bill raising the minimum wage pay their interns.”

BBBWHAHAAH! Only 4 of 210 lawmakers PAY their interns ANYTHING!!!!

Cheap Bast*rds!

The Treasury Dept. is planning on coming out with a New !0,000 bill that has Obama's picture on it. This is in their preparation for the coming massive inflation that the Fed. Banks are pushing. This new 10,000 dollar note is to be sent out to all who are Obama supporters. The problem is the money will be worthless

Why is it? When I'm in line at the grocery check out, there always seems to be someone who appears to be at least 100 lbs. overweight in front of me. And they are buying lottery tickets with cash, before paying for some groceries with the food stamps? Anyone?

Considering some of the other ways we squander our tax money, I'm totally for helping my fellow Americans.

raver "Mike Huckabee points out women can't control their raging sex urge"

And raver is parroting the Progressive lie promulgated by the left-wing propaganda outlets?

If you don't have an explanation for your Demorat Party's FAILURES in every single area of governance, pick a GOP target, take a comment out of context, and babble lies until you turn blue, eh raver? LOL

ExxonMobil in 2011 made $27.3 billion in cash payments for income taxes. Chevron paid $17 billion and ConocoPhillips $10.6 billion. And not only were these the highest amounts in absolute terms, when compared with the rest of the 25 most profitable U.S. companies (see our slideshow for the full rundown of who paid what), the trio also had the highest effective tax rates. Exxon’s tax rate was 42.9%, Chevron’s was 48.3% and Conoco’s was 41.5%. That’s even higher than the 35% U.S. federal statutory rate, which is already the highest tax rate among developed nations. - Forbes

Large low wage employers are teaching the workers how to apply for gov't assistance and get it. Since we protect corporate America so much it is now OK to pay workers poverty wages and let the gov't make up the difference. Corporate America has learned how to use the gov't to supplement their wage and benefit package. Isn't that great?! Corporate America uses the welfare system as part of its benefit package and then most corporations pay NO taxes! What a gig for corporate America!

Raver, Obama does not WANT a SOLUTION.

THIS is a PRIME OBAMA VOTER.

If OBAMA had a HO, she would look like this.

And if Obama had his wish, the USA would look like DETROIT! 98% DEM voters, more than HALF living in poverty.

GARDEN of EDEN for DEMS!!!

And pray....where is the FATHER of the child?? Oh, not married eh? GOP hopeful Mike Huckabee points out women can't control their raging sex urge, guess that's the problem. His moronic solution? Don't give them birth control under Obamacare. That'll scare these women into keeping their legs together. Say what?

At any rate, she should turn in the guy who did the deed for skipping out and not sending child support payments every month!
