    Not you progressives. You are right on schedule. I'm talking to the others



    Does it bother you that during these times of trouble and unemployment
    the number of people working for the government has increased 14%?

    Does it bother you that the hourly wage of private industry is $27.00/hour
    while that of government workers is $39.00/hour, and they get many more benefits?

    Does it bother you that for the first time there are more union workers
    inside the government than there are in the private sector?( which should
    be illegal)

    Does it bother you that for the first time, the government is paying more
    out in union benefits than the private sector is?

    You beginning to see why andy stearn is the most frequent visitor at
    the white house?

    wonder why china has all the products to sell here? the government
    doesn't produce a single product. pretty soon the whole country
    will be doing nothing except sitting around sucking at the obama teat
    thinking it's an entitlement.

    I am coming to the end of my journey at the right time. I got to see
    america in her greatness.


    your only hope? unelect every member of the congressional progressive
    caucus.All members are members of the Democratic Party or caucus with
    the Democratic Party. There are currently 82 total declared Progressives
    including 79 voting Representatives, 2 non-voting Delegates, and 3 Senators.

    don't forget Nancy Pelosi - Left the Caucus when Elected House Minority Leader

    also send the socialist dude back to kenya

    then you might salvage a country before it's just a 3rd rate country with a
    footnote or an asterick indicating former significance.

    The current state of America is very alarming. Instead of getting better, it seems to get a little bit worse every day. We are in trouble here and nobody really seems to care. This administration and Congress is killing our once great nation.

    It would help if you provided links containing the facts upon which you rely. While I don't doubt some of your information is accurate, like anything else these days, there's probably more to each of the above than simply expressed.

    Exactly. All I've heard for the last 17 months whenever something goes wrong or not according to "the plan" Obama's got for America is "we inherited it....It's all Bush's fault!"
    I'm about sick of that fucking line and so is the rest of the Nation.

    Welcome to Obama's America....Finally Michele Obama can feel PROUD of HER country.
    We will not be able to overcome what this administration is doing to change the country to be what they envision when you have the likes of Ed Shultz and the rest on MSNBC telling us every day how Obama has done so much to turn the economy and the country around.Big Government,Big Government,Big Government......Hmmm,Hmmmm,Hmmmm.

    Where is the increase? Department of Defense is involved in two wars, Homeland Security is recently created. Good to see someone hiring

    Your numbers don't compare like jobs only average salaries. Since the Government primarily hires workers with degrees and has contracted out low skilled labor jobs, I would expect the Government average to be higher. When comparing similar job titles, Government pay is less

    What difference does it make? Government workers get fired if they strike

    Makes no sense at all. China labor is at 10% what they pay in the US. That is why they sell cheaper products here. China is also communist and has a higher percentage of Government workers than we do.


    So do you actually have a point to this thread?
