    No it isn't. Investment is vital. It's damn near a public service.


    All I and that other dude are saying is that a solution to the current trajectory WILL have to be presented at some point, or we're going to be in serious trouble.

    I'd call it "Toverment" after you.
    Why is the government managing the situation the solution? It would seem to me the problem starts and ends with the people. The government can't fix a problem that is created from how people approach the economy and each other.

    And which political party backs unions? The teachers' unions, the auto unions, the telecommunication unions, the trucker unions and the 13 unions associated with General Electric....etc. etc.? Let me help you here. It is the Democratic party. Their "special interest groups" almost always are associated with "unions". Need an Obamaphone, no worries between ATT, Verizon, Sprint and others on the government dole, one will be provided for you. Got some skin invested in global warming green stocks taking off? No worry, CEO Immelt of GE one of Obama's advisors who heads a company with over 13 different unions involved, along with Goldman Sachs with skin in the game whose former CEOs are currently advisors to Obama, these corporations seem to by-pass paying taxes due to loopholes while getting favors in contracts from the government if you know what I mean in the name of "green". And GE is also at the forefront for "special" treatment over their involvement in medical equipment. Hello Obamacare! And the teacher unions, well they are useful idiots to further the expansion of the federal government over education. The once big three auto unions who are the reason the big three auto industries in the US have gone down the toilet because the workers were promised one too many benefits the industry can no longer meet. And look at what that has done to Detroit!

    Well first off they don't. That was based on a false data set that only asked about social conservatism. (a thing I don't think you would fall into, but many libs do) cons "donations" are also usually false charity's that do very little to no good for the common man. places like churches, organizations like Cato and heritage, or crazy pro lifers. Libs are more likely to give to things that do more good like tsunami relief funds or secular organizations that actually pass on a majority of the money to the poor in the form of food, clothes, blankets, etc... Also cons tend to have more money, and therefore more to give... Don't believe me? Fine believe MIT http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.c...act_id=2148033

    Second wtf is a six? Your the one that is throwing ish against the wall and seeing if it sticks, like arguing against Merriam Webster definition of "starving" I am giving you facts I have read elsewhere that can easily be found again. I am also using critical thinking, something that confounds most lawyers (they don't expect it) and most of the pop seems to lack greatly. I have not made up a thing and have sources to back it, if i dont know i research so i do. Can you say the same? Where is your source for starving only means to death huh? Or why do you still have the dated notion that cons give more then libs when at face value its equal and when it comes to real good libs give wayyyyyyy more and less selfishly (ie not donating to a church or organization that is pretty sure to help you more than others)

    From Nixon, and the supreme court... FDR passed a bill to try to govern commerce, and gave the federal gov more power in doing so. Nixon (and the supreme court) falsely interpreted the law to allow them to pass drug prohibition. A good analogy would be how Obama falsely used the patriot act to do all sorts of dirty ish (before he passed ndaa) that the writers of the patriot act never intended.... (in fact they said so) At worst fdr was negligent in his writing, not complicit as you would imply. Oh and Obamas a centrist/corporatist real liberalism is all but dead.

    Manufacturing/delivery felony
    2 misdamenor possession charges... I had a lil keif n weed for me n my friends to smoke in with the lb....

    I could have fought it, they had no probable cause to pull me, (other than being white in a neighborhood where white ppl buy dope ie heroine NOT weed) but then if my motion to dismiss failed I would have had to spend allot more on defense (which would have came out of my savings to move/start a business) plus you can't grow for commercial purposes with a felony where I'm gonna move anyway, and I did not wanna take that risk... Treatment court ensures they expunge as long as I keep my nose clean for two years and I will... Can move after one... I don't even touch the **** no mo or have it in my presence... I still sell it tho

    Plus I think I have a new organic hydro method I invented I could write a book on, so I don't necessarily need allot of plants to make allot of money (you can grow 4 with a med card where I'm goin, n they don't care about F's for that)

    Its cool I don't mind not smoking, the worst thing is I would have moved already n the whole ordeal cost me 4300 between the loss of pot n lawyer.... Kinda sucks going to groups with crackheads n dopefeinds too but what evs...

    They enrolled me in drug court of their own accord because I am white... Gawd the system is racist but the racism sort of helped me in this case... Well and hurt me if I were black they wouldn't of pulled me in the first place..

    Oh well live n learn...

    People notice what you do at work...Good or Bad. You have choices in life to make.

    Some are felons and others take responsibility for themselves and don't blame others for their own mistakes in life.
    One of the dumbest things I have ever read.

    So if you work really hard at wal Mart or McDonalds you will get ahead? No you certainly will not..

    Go away with your lying butt!
