    "New Hampshire’s GOP legislature has come up with all manner of absurd bills recently, including a proposal making public school curriculum optional, another to prevent police from protecting domestic abuse victims, and even a measure mandating that new laws be based on the Magna Carta. Some of the Granite State’s GOP lawmakers have even proposed doing away with the law that requires employers to give their workers time off for lunch, under the rationale that all employers will simply grant lunch breaks out of the goodness of their hearts:


    “This is an unneeded law,” [Republican state Representative Kyle Jones] said. “If I was to deny one of my employees a break, I would be in a very bad position with the company’s human resources representative. If you consider that this is a very easy law to follow in that everyone already does it, then why do we need it? Our constituents have already proven that they have enough common sense to do this on their own.”

    What is the purpose of undoing this law??? Is this the best that Republicans can give to the people of New Hampshire??? Pitiful.

    So?

    You don't offer lunch, you don't get employees, you don't get employees, you go out of business before you start.

    Go find something important to cry about.

    Republicans aren't conservatives, they are regressives. They want to repeal the gains of the 60's and 70's (EPA, Medicare, Medicaid), the New Deal (Social Security, unemployment insurance, the minimum wage), and even the Progressive Era (income tax, antitrust laws, the Federal Reserve).

    They want to take us back to the 19th century and turn America into Dickinsean England.

    I remind you there are 12.8 million unemployed in America.

    And you believe this "no lunch, no employees" nonsense?
