    Wrong. Based on political contributions, GE is a larger supporter of Republicans.



    Apple leans Democrat, but their total political contributions are only ~3% of what GE spends so they are essentially irrelevant.

    So -- another right wing myth bites the dust

    How are any of these words made up, and since they are all in the dictionary how can they have no meaning?

    I can back it up just fine. I just won't get into a discussion with a person who lacks the requisite knowledge to be a part of the conversation.
    Your post is a perfect example of why it is useless to "get into a discussion with those who lack requisite knowledge to be a part of the conversation". Your post makes no sense, so how could any discussion even occur? We've seen lots of those types of posts in this thread, trying to rewrite the dictionary, making claims that the simplest of research indicates are false, those that simply are incoherent (such as yours). It's bizarre.

    Another post that makes no sense whatsoever, other than a transparent attempt to cover your a) failure, and b) inability to substantiate your claim, with an ad hominem to boot. It is stunning that one would even offer up such a retort, for it is so clearly a fail. You folks need to study up on debate at least a little bit, for what you are putting forth is quite simply embarrassing.

    Again; I don't know how you can say that. Since you've never been it, you have no idea how it feels to have someone walk in and steal your job and then flip you off again and again. You have no idea how it feels to work hard to get what you have and then have someone right next to you effectively thumbing their nose at you all teh while taking with pleasure the pay and benefits that you fought for. If anything you're armchair quarterbacking opinions.

    Boy you guys are liars....(progressives)...GE CEO Jeffery Immelt - "In February 2009, Immelt was appointed as a member to the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board to provide the president and his administration with advice and counsel in fixing America's economic downturn.[14] Jeffrey R. Immelt - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    While at the same time taking taxpayer monies, and moving to China...

    As far as Apple is concerned, the close relationship they have with this progressive WH is troubling regardless of the amounts donated on behalf of Apple Corp. to demo causes. You really think that the level of money across the board when you add in private donations of Apple employees is not significant? Also, that's enough for you to dismiss the fact that the iPhone you use is made by slave labor in China?

    I thought you were for the worker?

    Really? Then it should be easy to provide...Instead all I get from you people is deflection and ad hominem....Why is that?

    All I asked was for the definition to be posted....Why is it my responsibility to define his made up bull ****? He spewed it, he should define it...Your post here is a fail.

    Another post that makes no sense whatsoever, other than a transparent attempt to cover your a) failure, and b) inability to substantiate your claim, with an ad hominem to boot.

    Like I said, I need to prove NOTHING to you. I don't know you, you're on an anonymous message board, and if you are taking up to defend the made up definition the onus is on you to define the term. Your bravado is only cover for your own inability to discuss the topic anyway...

    "it"? What is it?

    All of your whining won't change the fact that today, the pendulum has not swung yet, and people don't want the Union in their place of work. That's a fact.

    LOL

    I never wrote that union membership was in every corner of the economy, but the Progressive Machine has been created to change that. Your denial of this fact is really rather remarkable.

    I'm sorry, but I can't overcome the ignorance many display on this site. I think I'd rather they just keep displaying the fact for the amusement of others. So, I'll leave you to that group providing entertainment.

    (Psssst. As I posted, the Center for Responsive Politics is part of the Progressive Machine, not too helpful to your argument when you use a cog in the Progressive Machine to prove the "enemy" is worse)
