"When Faith preaches Hate, Blessed are the Doubters." - Amin Maalouf
Like the guy, and that's an understatement, but a dark horse he ain't.
Men do what they have to when they want to, Great men do what they have to, even when they don't want to.

I admire Sanders conviction and believe that he feels what he is proposing would help American families but I have to disagree somewhat. Sometimes you have to look beyond intent and look at the bigger picture. I feel that such legislation (among some of his other proposals) will only spur more US businesses to outsource or move overseas into countries that do not place such a financial burden and inconsistent worker onto the business. It also makes investing in employee replacing technologies more appealing.
While I do not believe Sanders bill will push us over the edge I do believe it will further erode our competitive business environment when frankly we need to spur more incentive to run a business here and not drive more away. Parental leave, sick leave, and vacation time are great but those are not going to do a lot of good if the jobs are not there to be had.
The critics have no problem maintaining the Pentagons budget which is way past legitimate defense, or increasing Israel's welfare check, but this, oh hell no!
