    Wrong. People can take no deductions and presto.....they made a contribution.

    Yes, we know what kind of “jobs” your city creates. I think that proves my point.

    So what is your job? We see you on this forum all day, during work hours, obviously spending too much time here to possibly be getting any work done for your city. What are you supposed to be doing?

    Wouldn't the money that is being used to pay you to sit around all day and play on the Internet do a lot more good in the private sector, where it could be used to pay a real worker to do real work?

    The govt creates millions of jobs from the small local town to the cities to the states to the federal govt....they are the only jobs paying a decent wage and affording their employees with a degree of security for their families...and because of this the Teaparty far right HATES THEM and wants them crushed. They dont want any comparisons to the rape that has been perpetrated on the working class in the private sector by the pigs at the trough. They dont want the private sector workers WAKING UP and shedding their fear and fighting back. Every teaparty supported gov that won in NOV attacked public workers...vilified them and took from them and either gave to the rich and corporations or tried too and failed....and thats what guaranteed that the gop can no longer be guaranteed my vote.

    Your refusal to give a straight answer should surprise no one.

    Fort the record, I'll state what it is that I am supposed to be doing at my job, and I challenge you or anyone else to come up with any credible evidence that I am doing anything but that when I am at work.

    I work in the Shipping department of a factory. I move product around, from the assembly line to the warehouse, from the warehouse to the loading dock, or into trucks that will take it to our customers. I do most of this work with a forklift, though some involves getting off my forklift and moving individual cases from one pallet to another.

    I do this from 14:00 to 22:30 Pacific time, every weekday, minus a short meeting at the start of each shift, two 20-minute breaks, and a 40-minute lunch break.


    What about you? All the time that we see you on this forum, during what are presumably your work hours, what are you supposed to be doing?
