Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

Hmmmmm according to the conservative watchdog pollsters at The Huffington Post 59% of Americans agree with the late term abortion ban http://big.assets.huffingtonpost.com/topli…
Turns out, Americans believe you can make a "choice" in less than 5 months.
So that leads us to wonder, is Hightower just confused about polls or is he a bald faced liar? Since I have seen it so many times from this man, I have to go with the latter.

Re: “The anti-choice men of Texas

One wonders why you concern yourself with the state of Texas. And, if your made up "poll" is correct, you and your fellow busy-bodies have nothing to worry about.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

Stacy, although very well written and spot on, I'm afraid it is much too complex for Hightower (and liberals who think with their emotions) to comprehend.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

I look on in amazement as to how Hightower thinks this is just "greedy old meany corporations" or some such fap. Welcome to inflation there Jimmy boy. When an incompetent, stumbling man-child takes over and runs the defecit from 9 trillion to 16 trillion of debt, that debt must be serviced. And the way the Obama/Bernanke machine does this is by printing money. Then these two MENSA members decided they could also print for other things, 2-years of 2 year unemployment extenxions, Food Stamps, Obamaphones, money for Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, Green energy boondoggles, failed electric car programs, purchasing Chevrolet and giving it to the UAW, purchasing Chrysler and giving it to Fiat, and the list goes on and on. You know what Jimmy boy? When there is more of something it is worth less and when there is less of something it is worth more. Obama/Bernanke nearly DOUBLED the money supply, reducing our dollars value by close to 40%. That is why when Obama took office a gallon of gas cost $1.85 and never will again. Thanks Democrats, you are really something else.

Re: “Hold the mayo-packaging lie

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" right Hightower. I bet a socialist like you wants everything to be "free".
Obviously most folks are smarter than you and can figure it out. Here's a thought, if you don't like the product, don't by it.

Re: “Wolves in do-gooder clothing

Right Jim, if someone does anything political they shouldn't be a 501(c)(4) corporation. Let's look at who we are talking about, shall we. The NAACP, the Gil foundation, Organizing for America, Media Matters, Ruckus Society, Americans United for Change,
Women’s Action for New Directions, Black Alliance for Just Immigration, Voto Latino, La Raza, MeCHa, and the list goes on and on. If you want to do awy with 501 groups that are politically based, well I am with you brother because there are a fuckload more "progressive" groups on that gravy train than the measley amount of Tea Party groups subjected to your messiahs inquisition. And by the way, I call trying to keep communists and other assorted dirtbags, such as yourself, out of power to be a VERY GOOD social welfare group. Because in America, social welfare aint socialism, unless you are one of the aforementioned dirtbag communists.

Re: “Going hungry in Houston

Here's an idea Jimmy. Why don't you and your bleeding heart adopt all the homeless in the Springs. You don't need to take them in, but simply follow behind them and pick up all the trash they heedlessly toss around. Or, better yet, pick up all the feces deposited daily along the trail system. Or are you just talk?

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

K: what a putz. You have yet to offer an original thought. You sit on your perch, like the vulture you are, and pick apart people's posts. You actually believe yourself to be wise. You are the biggest joke on these pages. (Well, tied for biggest. The twisted sister is pretty ludicrous as well.)

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

siggie, you wrote, "Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today." Indeed! That is because many, if not most, of the unions were organized and led by unabashed communists and socialists. In the 1950's, after the Soviet Union tested a nuclear device, and America officially entered the "McCarthy Era," communists and socialists were drummed out of the unions, paving the way, in many, but not all cases, for unscrupulous opportunists to take over.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Arch-conservative President Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon opened relations with "Red China," a policy no Democrat would ever have been able to introduce. He was initiating a divide-and-conquer maneuver, trying to drive a wedge between the two allies, and his policy was certainly instrumental in the fall of the Soviet Union.

Now that the Soviet Union is no more, it is long past time to turn against the "Peoples' Republic," to put an end to the sham they call communism, and to liberate their people, using the same weapon we used against the Soviet Union, economics. But the so-called "job creators" are too busy making record profits from the exploitation of Chinese workers. And so-called "conservative" politicians are responsible for mortgaging the nation to China to fight not one, but two (count 'em!) wars.

These "patriots" are bolstering China's economy. They are today's true "useful idiots!"

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Stacy: Golly, is it fair to bring up Benghazi? The liberals are wetting their pants over this one. If we had an honest media, this would have been a huge story eight months ago. However, the liberal press, not wanting to embarrass their deity, Obama, or their queen, Hillary attempted to bury it. The White House wanted us all to forget about it by refusing to address it. Unfortunately for them, this travesty (and cover up) has legs and has an excellent chance of being blown wide open. Let us hope that justice prevails.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

siggie, the one thing you did not say is that any American garment workers have been injured or killed on the job recently, in spite of the supposed modern decline in union morality that you fail to document. You also fail to mention that it is the American garment workers union that is the sole voice in America fighting for safer conditions for the garment workers of Bangladesh, even though the workers in Bangladesh are not members and do not pay dues.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Changing the subject again? How do you I have no opinion on the oppression of Chinese workers? I was not aware that I am required to inform you of all my opinions regarding China before you even bring up the topic, Stacy. I will let you know precisely how I feel about China later tonight, when I have some time to devote to the subject. In the meantime chew on this, it was Mitt Romney who inspected a factory in China and praised their system of slave labor.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

K: So, you have licked your wounds from the last ass whooping you received in these pages and, being the arrogant twit that you are, have forgotten how painful it was.
Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today. They care nothing for worker safety and (if one were being honest) nothing for the "worker". All they care about is maintaining their dwindling power base, how much money they can extort from companies, how much they can squeeze out of their lemming members, and how much Democrat ass they can kiss.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

And speaking of communists, Mr. K, why is it when hundreds of Chinese miners die in a mine collapse, you and Hightower and the rest of the Marxists have no opinion?

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Change the subject? Okay, let's go back. You were saying that somehow if there were no unions in America today, that building codes would not exist. Sure makes total sense.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Stacy, can't you read? Did the article in question mention Benghazi, or Bangladesh? Or are you simply trying to change the subject in a vain attempt to distract attention from your indifference to the safety of working people around the world?
