Or maybe you idiots should just get bark and ketchup when you order off the dollar menu.
No longer can labor be the elasticity that keeps prices down. Inflation has been tempered on the backs of the working man and woman. He or she can't afford to support your economy any longer while you use your leverage to purchase franchises, trying to squeeze a buck's worth of profit out of them and whine about competitor's prices. Or speculate our economy into oblivion. The laziest among us call themselves "enterprising", and try to use their trust funds to guarantee never having to be worth their own salt. Tax these pricks to the moon.
But if you all keep having your way, the only way to afford anything will be prison labor. Only in the "land of the free".

Three things "trickle down".
Sweat, blood, and juice from the bullsh*t they're trying to feed you.

YES- someday I hope and pray that a company will move here and save us all. But until then, we must crush these suffering "morons" so that they don't get all uppity and demand what they are worth for the services they provide us. We don't want them driving up the prices we pay off the dividends we reap for having polluted and pillaged anyone not greedy enough to keep up with us.
Our children will be so proud of our greed.
***does the sarcasm come across enough ?

All wages are scaled off the minimum wage. The skilled working person takes it in the paycheck unless he/she is fortunate enough to have a union representing them.
THEY NEED THE WORK DONE MORE THAN I NEED THE WORK.
I have made an art out of living on less. I'd sooner starve than put a roof over GeorgeJeanie's head. Not because I don't have the skills. Because I'm not a slave and I don't reward greed and hoarding.
All of the statistics show that all the wealth has gone to the 1percenters. Reward for greed, not hard work or comparative value. Or so called skills.Let's see a wall streeter grow his own food or build his own house. I know plenty of minimum wage earners who can and have.
We have been in a period of fear. Of increased "worker productivity" is what the owners of the means of production call it. But it's fear that if you don't shut up and take it harder than you've ever taken it before, and for less every day, that you will lose your job to some shlepp next in line. This is the opposite of solidarity. And when the working people wake up and get in the streets, all you people who kept us down for so long are going to realize what suffering feels like.
And if that never happens, and things get much worse for us, what d'ya think comes next ? They say the toothless get ruthless. Eat the rich.

Seems like something an all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving god could have figured out, no ?
Pray harder I suppose.
Or maybe it was deserved ?
One too many f-words or impure thoughts ?

Both parties are totally complicit in this.
But y'all keep pointing fingers at each other and voting for the lesser of two evils. Just don't expect anything t change. Why would they listen t you if you're gonna vote for 'em anyways ?

If you or a loved one has ever been denied insurance due to a pre-existing condition, it doesn't take much to realize that it doesn't mean a flying f*ck what your portfolio amounts to.
Need trumps greed.

You're right. The only women voting Trump are doing so for fear of getting a busted lip from their keeper if they don't.

I'll go Jill Stein in the general if need be.
It's time we realize that voting for the "lesser of two evils", is still voting for evil.

Totally understand and am with you on taking polls with a grain of salt DBF.
I just had to point out the "bunk" in Redeye's post about "another liberal polling group trying to make Obama look good."
I am not an Obama supporter. But to kill the messenger is all these right wingers attempt to do. In this case, the message is as unbiased as any poll could be. This institute makes its living by offering as unbiased and large sample polls as are conducted. They have no political ties or goals. Their bread and butter comes from doing their job ethically.
