    but that isn't the issue

    IF your employer can replace your labor with a cheaper alternative why shouldn't it?
    See there you go with that right wing mentality, get everything as cheap as possible, but in the long run it comes to bite you in the ass. It comes with a price.

    you are assuming facts not in evidence-that your labor is more valuable

    ASSUME some robot or some guy in India can do your work as WELL as you do at a lower rate
    why should your employer pay more for you when it can get the same QUALITY and QUANTITY of labor as what you provide for far less money

    A lot of people knock Asians making stuff cheaply as a bad thing but that's only because you are trying to compare there world with ours. Yes, making 1 dollar and hour would really suck for someone here. But for there? It's more money then they'd make in a year's time working the fields! Trust me, if the "Asians" (there are more cheap labor markets besides just Asia btw) could get more money somewhere else, than they would.

    Re: GOP seizes Senate

    Everyone w/noodle knows that GOP voters are mentally challenged--the fact that all GOP-run states (AL, MS, AR, LA) are crumbling ****holes w/poverty and corruption all over the place while the top liberal states (MA, MN, VT, WA) are economic powerhouses itself tells the story, even if it's not large enough to hit the right wing nail on the head.

    But the solution to this problem is obvious, and has been since the tea party successfully knocked Cantor out of VA. Just establish a symbiotic (financial) alliance between the Libertarians and liberals and the tea party--done.

    With financial support from the likes of George Soros, Google, Elon Musk, etc., the tea party could completely wipe out pols like mcconnell, lindsay graham, etc., since the tea party's rhetoric more closely matches the childish bigotries of the electorates in the aforementioned conservative states (i. e. "deport all the spics and nuke the muslums") than does the rhetoric of the establishment (Neocon) Repubs currently in power, i. e. conservatives are always going to vote for someone in favor of killing/deporting all Mexicans rather than someone who favors amnesty for them.

    As for differences between the ideologies of the tea party and liberal groups, that won't be an issue since the tea party is so desperate for funding that its candidates will likely concede completely on some issues as long as they can win on the issues that matter most to their voters: deporting all non-Whites, banning all religions except Xtianity, and letting everyone buy any kind of gun he/she wants.

    And once the tea party candidates are in power, we can force them to vote in our favor on issues by threatening to yank their funding if they don't. The tea party backing voters won't know anything about those votes since, as everyone knows, conservative voters only listen to rhetoric and are too dumb/lazy to pay attention to actual bills and votes.

    3.)No administration has slithered as low and with more feral hate than Obama's
    1.) dont know and dont think it matters either, especially in todays world of media. Is there another president that had secret meetings of opposition against him BEFORE hand either?

    you cant look at ONE side of the coin thats silly
    2.) again where you see some manufactured "extra" hostility i simply see politics today and what it has been for a while. Not defending its just the reality.

    3.) I dont see that either there are many that would say the prior absolutely did, even some of thier own members.

    sorry i just dont buy into the manufactured and dramatic one sided views. I dont see anything unique from this admin in terms of the things you speak. Looks like business as usual and business in a minimum, equally hostile environment. Two sides of the coin, not one.

    We know that ain't gonna happen. And in 2016, the democrats will get off their lazy asses and go vote, as they do during presidential elections. There are more voters who identify themselves as democrats than republicans.

    Rinse and repeat. Business as usual in Washington.
    that's if you expect actual laws and such as a result of this election. What the Republicans know is that really nothing can be accomplished because Obama will use his little pen, now that the phone is useless...he has no one to call.

    What they can accomplish is defining the issues for 2016. Obama is not the main attraction anymore, Clinton is. Cruz has already said this congress is about Clinton and holding her feet to the fire.

    The goal is the White House, not solutions to problems or anything idealistic...
