    Smaller businesses do get tax breaks. Your argument is a red herring.

Below is a link to 7 minute story she told about the TSA back in 2004. Funny to see if you got the time.

    I think some of the greatest comedians are Texans and they tend to be politically active. Her, Jim Hightower and especially Kinky Friedman.

    We need good paying, full time jobs! That's why Republicans (and Obama) are pushing trade deals to ship more jobs overseas!

    Well, they care about exploiting them. They care about denying equal pay for women, robbing pensioners and those with 401Ks, they care about not allowing for unions to organize or health care benefits for those fully employed.

    Say what you want but it takes a lot to maintain that.

    What? How exactly do I deny women equal pay by not mandating employers provide women equal pay? Is this like one of those tricks where if I give people the freedom to decide what they will pay people that somehow I'm forcing employers to not pay women equally?

    Are you denying that women don't get equal pay? Or do you think they are paid less because they deserve less? Equal pay for equal work means just what it says.
