    This should disqualify you from calling anyone ignorant for the rest of your life!
    Why don't you find out how much an older person who is on SS can earn in another job while collecting SS. Get back to me with the answer.

John McCain’s (R-AZ) admission on Thursday that he’s opposing Hagel because Hagel broke with the GOP on the Iraq war: “They don’t have a Secretary of Defense running the Pentagon because of a 6 or 7 year old grudge? Really?”:



    McCAIN: But to be honest with you, Neil, it goes back to there’s a lot of ill will towards Senator Hagel because when he was a Republican, he attacked President Bush mercilessly and say he was the worst President since Herbert Hoover and said the surge was the worst blunder since the Vietnam War, which was nonsense. He was anti-his own party and people — people don’t forget that. You can disagree but if you’re disagreeable, then people don’t forget that.

    “The impressive thing about the anti-Hagel effort is how politically tone-deaf it is,” writes the American Conservative’s Daniel Larison. It’s not just that their opposition is misguided, but they stand to gain nothing from it. No one outside of a small core of hard-liners sympathizes with what Senate Republicans are doing.”



    Care to rethink that?
    sigh. At no point did McCain say HE felt that way. He said some of his colleagues did. He didnt go against just Bush he went against his party on a variety of issues. McCain himself deals with that blowback quite often from his decisions.

    At NO point does McCain say HE feels that way but he attributes it to his colleagues. But then again McCain has voiced a lot of BS to get headlines in the media. Maybe hes past that, but I wouldnt put money on it.

    Of course you don't as you are just like all other liberals, giving lip service to what you think is a compassionate position. Raise the minimum wage because it sounds and feels good to you. Fact, you are limited at what you can earn on SS so any minimum wage full time job puts you well over that amount. You really don't care because you have been brainwashed by the liberal ideology.

    WTF does this reply have to do with the post that you quoted?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I am sure that you are smart enough to figure it out and what an increase in the MW does to hours for seniors but then again maybe not since you are an apparent Obama supporter.

    See that wasn't so hard, you figured it out just like I figured out you were an Obama supporter who believes everything he says and ignores the results. It is always spending in the name of compassion to indicate to people that you care when the reality is you really don't give a damn.

    Yep.Sometimes i can be a melon head.



    just like I figured out you were an Obama supporter who believes everything he says and ignores the results.
    Hhmm... 133.56 million in January of 2009. 134.02 jobs for December of 2012 for net gain of=460,000 or 0.3 percent.What was the economy dong, during the last few months of the presidency of the president that conservatives would rather ignore?

    Even us melon heads can like an economy chugging along with a Job growth of about 150,000 per month over one loosing about 700 K per month.

    It is always spending in the name of compassion to indicate to people that you care when the reality is you really don't give a damn.
    Musta had blue light a sale on crystal balls at Wally World last night before yer shift at the door was over eh?
