On The new F-word: Father
Has anyone else noticed the facts about 2 parent families and successful offspring. Not saying that about all, but many. Just heard a storry about a guy with 30 kids wanting his child support lowered because it took half his paycheck. Losers like this need to be sterilized. It all goes back to family(not that mine was great). I see girls get pregnant with no regard for who the father is because they want a baby to "love". Then they find out how much it costs and how much work it is and need support from society.
On Republicans continue meeting on budget deals
I cannot agree with the voucher system. It is said we are responsible for a PUBLIC education system. If you want your children to go elsewhere, you can pay your own way. All this does is hurt the public education system, not that the Gov cares.
On Who's messing with Bessie? Landmark falls victim to vandals
hdonlybob, You are correct the initial Cow was a holstein. Can't remember the whle story, but it got destroyed, so the guernsey was bought
On Proposal would reduce benefits to unemployed
jv93, apparently you were not looking for a job in 2007-2011. Unless you were skilled in some fields, jobs were non-existent.
JoyM and jv93, tell whole truth. Employer pay into a fund to a certain level, based on number of employee's. If that level is reached, you pay no more. A small amount was added to this fund with the high unemployment rate, but the vast majority was paid by the federal government. The state is paid ot handle the program. Using that excure to not give raises or cut pay is laughable. If all of the "GOOD PAYING" jobs were created, as promised, unemployment would not be a problem. Why is it the economic divide keeps increasing, while the middle class shrinks? Why is pay differntial between executives and worker at an all time high, but the lowly employee is blamed for rising costs? Sure, some do milk the system, but many don't. This just continues the republicans mean spirited attack on the working class. Walkers wants to be elected king, and he wants all working class people to be lowly servents to the rich
What are the actual changes? Walker and repubs would do away with it completely if they could. That will not attract business, and will make people leave.
On Tea party vs. old guard in GOP Senate rift
Watched an interesting film on PBS the other night about all the tax money not being paid by corporations. Wait, PBS, the right wants to get rid of it, nevermind
So we can all agree that ALL politicians are only concerned about the wealthy and we are lemming to whatever party we affiliate ourselves with.Oh, also that RAF's points are of no value because he sucks at the teat of the government, much like the welfare and food stamp crowd
On Paul Ryan writing political autobiography
I would like to read the chapter "What I did for the people of my elected district". I do believe it would be very short. That said, I do believe Mr. Ryan is a good man. but he has not did anything to represent the people that he is supposed to. He does have some good idea, but his unwillingness to comprimse on issues is a very poor trait. And how good can his spending habits be if a person making a 6-figure salary cannot afford a $300 grill.
The "new" republicans are only concerned about themselves and the wealthy, not the US
