    I understand the difference, but the fact remains that some of the money the government pays to the contractor is used to pay the people doing the work. Should we just figure out how much comes from that and say they don't have the right to do what they please with that percentage?

    What about the lobbying expenses of these companies? Given that some of their revenue comes from the government, should they be barred from lobbying for more?

    the one that values property rights over hackery is the actual conservative.

    at issue is his belief that people paid with tax dollars can't use their salary to push for higher salaries. it's a really poorly thought out position, born not from a root understanding of liberty and individual rights, but in wanting his political party to be stronger.

    This is a huge victory for the GOP and a bitter defeat for democrats and the unions.......Rhis is a blue state that always vote democrat......That is not the case this year.......Thanks to the Governor union membership has been cut in half and if you don't want your dues to go to democratic candidates you can say so......This is a state that Hussein Obama won easily in 2008..........

    Great News!!!!!!!!!!

    I would say that that's contradicted by thousands of elections.
    Barrack Obama certainly did well with his fund raising efforts and its hard to believe why anyone would vote for this guy unless he had a lot of financial support with which to advertise his Hope and Change promises, an extremely friendly media, and a very timely skin color. It certainly wasn't based on his experience or character.

    It is indeed and the stock market, as far as my stock anyway, has responded accordingly.

    This should give the American people the confidence they need to start turning the country around, but with the real test coming in November. if they can win In November then investors everywhere will once again be bullish on America.

And if you tallied up advertising costs for the MSNBC coverage and pro-recall efforts, how much would THAT have added to the cost? What does advertising run on a cable network (albeit, a dog like MSNBC) run these days?
    Good questions. I don't know either. I will try to find answers after work.

    No! I'm shocked. Shocked again. First he can't provide factual sources. Second, he won't address facts and data proving him wrong. Then he dodges me. Then he dodges you.

    TRANSLATION: Those trillions of dollars hoarded away will suddenly come out with a Republican in charge. These right wing Mammon worshipping fools will intentionally screw the country and the people just to forward their own selfish agenda.

    Damn traitors.
