    They need to get 30 million jobs, I guess this is what they make up to do when they are not smart enough yo do real things. I could produce 30 million jobs in one year. “If you’re gonna sell it here, it has to be made here.” Real easy and simple.

    Damn if you aren’t right. And the Democratic Party is guilty of ignoring what needs to be done too. Both of these parties are busy worrying about the wrong damned things.

    And I totally agree that things need to be made here before china finishes owning us. They put their children to work and give them cots to sleep in over the factory for God’s sakes. They’re poisoning us with lead, melamine, you name it and what does our government do? Why they ‘adjust’ the ‘acceptable level” of lead and melamine. Since when does plastic have an acceptable level. We need to start taking care of our own with jobs here and products from here, yet our government continues to help THEM instead of us. I say slam those damned borders shut too. So you see, some Democrats are Moderates. Not all of us are batshit crazy leftist nuts.

    No jobs means No Life. Is this deliberate or are they just all too stupid to do what they are supposed to be doing for a lving?

      If you have a problem with buying Chinese, quit wearing your Nikes. Why does the government have to legislate Made in USA? Everyone likes the lower cost of imports. Change attitudes first, then the manufacture will follow. As long as the vast majority continues to shop Walmart, HomeDepot and other discount stores, they will keep selling people what they purchase.

    I said this over at The Widdershins..

    it is very easy to sit on one side of the fence or the other, but until someone walks that mile in those shoes…well, that is what makes life reality. There is never an easy answer. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it is just that. Can you imagine a physician telling a patient that they have been exposed to x,y,z and that the chances of that child being born without severe problems is highly unlikely? How easy is it for that woman to make that decision? Who should be involved in making that decision? Her spouse? What about the housekeeper that borders on being mildly retarded and is walked into a clinic by her male employer to have an abortion but doesn’t quite understand what is going on? Who actually is making the decision in that case? It is not a black and white issue, but that right to terminate a pregnancy should not be taken from that woman.

    This is about control. The fact that the 30 million jobs is not a priority is astounding. What UW said is spot on, no jobs means no life. More control. I’m thinking that the word “serf” will becoming back into style.

    I would be happy if there were no tax dollars used for abortions, or any other medical procedures. Get the feds out of our business and let us decide state by state. At least the people would have more say/control over these issues.

      First, there are no federal dollars which are used for abortions. Apparently you have never heard of the Hyde Amendment?

      Second, all putting things to a state vote does is allow bullies and corruption more, not less, control of democratic processes. This is the way it has always been. And it is the way it will always be. The larger the political unit, the more scrutiny that there is and the less corruption can hide itself.

    I am a giblet head: it took me 5 minutes to figure out what TCHB meant. It be me! I love it.:)
    Mich, though I am staunchly anti-abortion, I would settle for a state to state vote. I think the outcome might surprise a few folks.
