Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Indeed, siggie, if not for the unions, those could have been innocent American workers dying in American sweatshops, instead of foreigners dying overseas. Indeed, Stacy, how stupid of these workers not to have realized that resisting dangerous and inhumane working conditions would lead to businesses relocating overseas where human life is cheap.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Right Rocky "Bush did it", yeah, we never hear that. Get a grip Rocky, the fact is Bill Clinton signed it. And as we look into recent history, we learn something. That the Democrats controlled both the House AND Senate from 1993 to 1995, and on what date did Bubba Clintoon sign the law? Why, December 8, 1993. How strange, either you don't know what you're talking about or you're a liar. I'll go ahead and give you the benefit of the doubt and say it's the former, after all, you do sound like you vote Democrat.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

You guys do understand that it was Bush the first to get the ball rolling with NAFTA dont you? And it was the business lobby and Congress by the way a Republican Congress that got it passed. You also understand its Corporate America that entices the illegals to come here so they dont have to pay for the benefit of hiring Americans. Yep Clinton put his name on it. But wasent it a man in Texas that was thrown out of the Republican party for his sucking sound argument. Stupid is as Stupid does.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Stacy, the term 'useful idiots' has never been more applicable than in the US today.
I would wager that the many liberals would be shocked to discover that they are unwitting communists.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Great post siggie. It makes one ponder the question "are liberals so stupid, that they cannot see that making it more expensive to do business chases businesses away?", I say yes, liberals are exactly that stupid. These are the people that complain about companies "shipping jobs overseas", yet cheer as Bill Clinton signs NAFTA and Obama prepares to ship in another 30 million illegal workers. Liberals don't see the connection. Just a tip for the Manitou crowd, a factory of Mexican workers in Mexico is just like a factory of Mexican workers in America.

Re: “Stop killing garment workers

Hey Hightower, are you ready to denounce the extremely high corporate taxes in the US? You know they are the highest in the world. There is your "culture of greed". Couple that with the incompetent, gluttonous unions and no wonder companies are forced to do business outside the US. So, the next time you hear the inane cry of the envious - "the rich have to pay their fair share", you will stand up and say: "wait a minute. Let's think of the consequences."

Re: “The irony in Bush's new library

Hightower, if you had 1/10th the integrity and class of any Bush, you might not be the sniveling communist that you are. You mention WMDs as your reason for calling GW a liar. I guess that would apply to 99% of congress that believed the same thing. Perhaps it was the hundreds of thousands of Kurds that were terminated by what - weapons of individual destruction?
Additionally, to use the term "gut" referring to the need to fix the social security system proves you to be an outright liar.
The only "fraud" in the room is you. You are an absolute joke.

Re: “Cashing in on payday loans

Consumers should think twice before applying for payday loans and don’t fill loan application forms in a hurry. Because of tough economy there are lots of people with low income and they are looking for quick ways of borrowing money. And some of them don’t even pay attention at interest rates charged on loans. Any loan is a serious financial commitment and it’s not worth to use expensive services, even if they are fast and have benefits. Make sure you can pay off the loan and will not get into the debt circle. Payday loan lenders charge high rates because they take a risk when borrowing money to bad credit individuals.

Re: “DHS is bullish on bullets

Happy few, you still don't have a clue...they don't shoot 15 million rounds a year n practice.

They are buying up ammunition to keep us from doing that...they are preparing to keep us in line with Obama's plans when health care and food and energy become unavailable.

Re: “DHS is bullish on bullets

Stacy, from your link: "The training center and others like it run by the Homeland Security Department use as many as 15 million rounds every year, mostly on shooting ranges and in training exercises."

15 million is not the same as 1.6 Billion.

Try again.

Re: “DHS is bullish on bullets

Actually DHS IS buying 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition.… this link confirms it from a legitimate news source. The Denver Post is hardly an Alex Jones joint. So on to the next problem with the "it's normal to buy this much ammo", no it isn't. All these agencies add up to 145,000 employees. That comes out to 11,000 rnds per agent, yes that is a lot. To compare the US military only used 70 million rounds per year in Iraq and that includes lots of training. In fact all of our military combined use 1.5 billion a year. And DHS doesn't train as much as the military does. Hightower may be a lib, but he isn't stupid. He still has a healthy ability to question authority. Something most of the readers here used to have. Remember you guys? Way back before Obama when Guantanomo was a bad thing? And drone strikes were a bad thing? And The government wasn't to be trusted, remember that guys? Good times, good times.

Re: “DHS is bullish on bullets

And DHS is NOT buying hundreds of MRAPs either.

Such inflammatory emails are all part of the internet myths and lies that go around and around.

Obama is not gonna take all yer gunz, either.

George Soros does NOT own Snopes, either.

Idiots just WANT to believe the worst about others, even if they know it's all lies, and that's especially true of our black president....he's a commie, he's a socialist, he's a ________.

Re: “DHS is bullish on bullets

The problem with DHS is the 100k Federal Employees it controls. When you consider who falls under DHS the size of the ammo purchase is logical. What is not logical is how a National Police Force was created under the nose of Congress. The ammo is a symptom. Bottom line is why are we paying for an agency this size when we have our own local Police? The .40 caliber round is meant for the Sig p239 that most DHS agencies carry.

Anyone with gun knowledge will tell you that you can "take over" NOTHING with handgun rounds. The size of the force is the issue. If you are worried about a forced take over look at their 5.56 and ,223 purchases. The real threat is the Nationalism of Law Enforcement. If you wear blue it is YOU who needs to worry. They will be after your jurisdiction, and your job, next.

Re: “DHS is bullish on bullets

Chil: our friend Mr. Hightower has never bothered to deal in facts. He is a rabid communist zealot who will say anything that he believes will further his cause. He is actually arrogant enough to believe that, if he writes it, someone will believe it. Unfortunately, there are a large number of brain-dead people too stupid to know any better that just might.

The DHS is NOT buying 1.6 billion rounds. This is just an Internet myth started by the notorious rumor monger and 9/11 truther, Alex Jones.
