    "access" pfft...! what a joke...you use the language of the typical lying democrat, while touting the lie that the progressives told about this pile of dung law that was forced on us....The OWS line of Corporate hate in your messages is loud and clear, but rather infantile IMHO, on approach.

    So your response is an ad hom eh? Very telling.

    Come back when you can make a point without all the little childish insults laden in.

    Not all American voters are stupid. Many recognized the fraud of Obamacare and the lies in several other issues also. They were a little stupid at that time, for sure, but the really stupid ones are those who continue to defend him. There is no cure for that.

I know you'd like to say that things are so rosy in terms of employment today, because you buy into, lock, stock, and barrel that UE is actually below 6%, when in reality it isn't.

    In my area, and with two adult children gearing up to shortly move out on their own, upon completing their education, we have done the math...to live on their own here it takes about $1600. per month. That equates to roughly $9.50 an hour. If you can find a job today, it doesn't take much to get to that number, and not by government force either.

    Market forces will follow demand...Liberals in my mind have it backwards. You want government to tell business what they will pay, while at the same time destroying the availability of jobs to get...It doesn't work like that. And you being in business for yourself these days, I'd think you'd understand that.

    I don't engage you much Ikari, not because your postings are hard to refute, or because your ideas are agreeable, but rather because all too often you resort to this type of whining when confronted on the absurdness of your ideas...

    You don't want to be insulted, something I think you read into anything that doesn't agree with your own views btw., Then don't bring in such foolishness.

    As for this response, just a dodge as usual.

    Oh yes, I mentioned that. That's why it's wrong to say "Americans". Los Stupidos are those who continue their defense of this White House despite the obvious contempt for their own supporters..

    So you can't actually make an argument then, huh? You don't engage much because it isn't your strong suit. Drive by ad homs seem to be, though.

    As for this response, just a dodge as usual. Pathetic.

    Good to see you don't engage in drive-by ad homs.

    Nope, my responses take into account the arguments and posts directed at me. His past two posts have been drive by ad homs with no substance. Ergo, it does appear to be a strong suit of his. Had there been anything other than crying about liberal this or progressive that, it could have taken a different path. But measurement is as measurement is, yes? Reality cannot be changed.
