    Salaries are stagnant......Prices are going up. Same as an inflationary spiral. As long as we follow Obama's economic policy, it will remain the same.

    grunt, I think that is what Barry said....only not so bluntly.

    Saw this on a bumper sticker:

    Poor President Obama

    If he's re-elected, just think of the mess he'll inherit!

    Really, No sheet. BUT FACT CHECK TIME!!!!

    The governor's of Ohio and Wisconsin [republican] have taken more salary and benefits away than anyone else in the last two years. ALL MIDDLE CLASS JOBS!

    REPUBLICAN business owners have stripped this country of job after job by sending them overseas to fill their greedy pockets.

    So who's to blame???

    WTF get your facts straight!!!!

    The Maroon has spoken.

    Public sector unions have ruined the economy of cities all over the USA, many of whom are declaring bankruptcy or on the verge.

    I do not think wisconsinites would want WEA Trust back in the schools ripping off the taxpayer. Walker (Wis. legislature, actually) saved millions for school districts.

    We may even get to solvency as long as the Democrat thieves are held at bay.

    Midalake,

    You want to see what Democratic Party controlled government and unions do? Seriously? Come to Detroit! Democratic controlled since 1972 and the beginning of the downfall created by Coleman Young and company. Scandal after Scandal. No money. Kwame, Bobby, and I could go on and on. The Democratically controlled city is a FREAKIN DUMP!!! On the other hand Oakland county --- home to many communities that are controlled by none other than the Republicans are thriving!!

    You need to scrape the crap off of those rose colored glassed and step into reality!!

    Look any any city or state that has a history of Democrat rule and is near bankruptcy, California, and just about any city therein, the State of Illinois and City of Chicago, New York City.

    Can you.tell me of a city or state the has been run by Republicans for decades that is broke?

    Here is your chance to hit us with some "facts" your always harping about, but never provide.

    Midalake,

    Once again, you call for facts, but won't provide any.

    Nothing in my last thread can be construed as bulliyng, just requesting facts like you are always calling for.

    If you want to be take as reverent to the converstation, step up!

    Anybody can repeat Liberal lies and talking points.

    If you really believe in what you say, PROVE IT!

    Nobody in this country looks up to whinny losers, unless your Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson.

    But if on the other hand you like being the victim, then the Left is the right place for you to be.

    Good luck, soon people are going to ignore you on this site.

    Oh and by the way, a judge set aside part of the law in Wisconsin that prohibited public employees from being unionized.

    Be happy, celebrate! Now Wisconsin will go the way of other bankrupt cities and states

    Well, now. "Republican business owners".

    Stokin mentioned Jeffrey Immelt. (Obama's jobs czar)Head of GE. Since he took over, their stock dropped 60 per cent. Trading with Iran did not help the profit margin either. He was listed as the 4th worse CEO in May by Forbes magazine.

    Under his dynamic leadership The X ray division moveed to China, along with the manufacture of compact flourescent bulbs.

    "Since Immelt took over in 2001, GE has shed 34,000 jobs in the U.S., according to its most recent annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. But it's added 25,000 jobs overseas.

    At the end of 2009, GE employed 36,000 more people abroad than it did in the U.S. In 2000, it was nearly the opposite."

    I can't see how ANY "Republican business owner" could be worse for our economy.

    Bisi,

    As a Christian, I feel I should attempt to cure the ill informed with logic and rescue them from the dark side of Liberalism when possible.

    It only takes a little writing and reading to determine if the mental illness is so deep it is either possible or impossible to save them.
