    What we need is a ban on lobbyists. The whole system is corrupt, top to bottom.

    Ole Mutt says, "Corporations are people my friend".




    Yet, this person doesn't spend millions to influence elections, the whole time having taxes cut lower than the Mailmans.

    Damn liar!

    Yet, when this practice was first implemented by the Cosa Nuestra it was widely frowned upon and quickly remedied.

    When organized crime did it, it was bad.

    Now organised crime gets away with it!

    Damn liar!
    Mitt is not only a fucking liar but a total douche-bag. the private equity firm Bain Capital that Mitt used to run specialized in leveraged buyouts, buying control of companies with borrowed money, pledged against those companies’ earnings or assets. However, job creation at the target firms were no greater than in similar firms that were not targets, while “gross job destruction was substantially higher. Mitt made his fortune in a business that is, on balance, about job destruction rather than job creation. And because job destruction hurts workers even as it increases profits and the incomes of top executives, leveraged buyout firms have contributed to the combination of stagnant wages and soaring incomes at the top that has characterized America since the 80's.

    Lobbying has really hurt this country, it needs to go completely, or at least be heavily regulated...
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Right on point LAM, as always. I still say these mutha phuqas know something we're not privy to.

    Were being sold out, and people just go right on voting for these guys, and we wonder why nothing ever changes......

    Why Is Employment Growth So Low?

    From the Federal Reserve Board - St Louis

    Capital projects would solve this very easily. the jobs need to come where the people are not the other way around. far too many are locked into an upside down mortgage right now, leaving the current home work area is not a viable option for many.
