The vent doesn't make sense to you because you're trying to spell "labor" with a capital L as in Big Labor or Big Union Labor. If you were exposed to any information besides MoveOn.org last week you would have realized that the headine was that unemployment dropped a few tenths, but the reason was because so many people have stopped looking for work and are no longer counted. The 63% number is the per cent of able-bodied adults that have a job. In other words, aren't living off of the tax payers. This is the lowest number in over 30 years. The tongue-in-cheek comment about "leftist utopia" underscores the left's goal of getting as many people dependent on government as possible to perpetuate their political power. The vent had nothing to do with organized labor.1 month ago
Besides cockroaches, the other species that will survive is politicians. At taxpayer expense, they have constructed vast complexes deep underground to ensure their survival should their inept governing lead to nuclear holocaust.
I feel sorry for the cockroaches.Feb 15, 2011
America-hating liberals, progressives, no-lables, or whatever your kind is calling yourselves these days, fear Palin like a vampire shrinks from sunlight. I'm more convinced than ever that she's the best candidate in 2012 to stop the moral and cultural rot you people have brought on America.Jan 11, 2011
Even Chris Mathews, hardly a birther and with no brains to hide anyway, recently said why doesn't Obama just release the long form birth certificate.Dec 29, 2010
Those are nice examples of good work by liberals, Dale, but can you cite any that aren't 40 years old?Dec 9, 2010
It has been said that liberals live in a theoretical world and it's true.
Military combat is a very specialized field comparable to nothing in civilian life. There has to be a special bond among warriors -- and only one kind of bond. The soldierly bond gets confused if some guys think their comrades are hot or if they suspect their superior is having a relationship with a fellow soldier.
It's the same confusion that results from putting girls in the military. When an officer makes a decision, nothing should enter into it except his views on the best military strategy.
The military part of the military has valid reasons for wanting to separate the idea of martial ardor and sexual attraction. Combat units can't have anything that interferes with unit cohesion, such as, for example, platoon members who are dating one another.
Furthermore, the military will become inundated with harassment cases. Example: Isn't it true, Sergeant Jones that you ordered Private Blake on that dangerous mission where he was likely to be killed because he told you that you weren't his type?
Liberals are continually working to undermine our country, the family, religion and the military.

The Oregon Christmas bomber that was recently thwarted is Muslim. Too bad the visa freeze wasn't in effect before he got here. America doesn't have a problem with terrorists from Northern Ireland, and there isn't an advantageous ocean separating the Catholics and Protestants. Jihad is being waged by Muslims against America (remember 9/11?). What does America have to lose by temporarily suspending giving visas to Arab Muslims other than offending your sense of political correctness?
But I do agree with your suggestion that troops on the border could help prevent the flow of arms from America to Mexico. The narcos will then have to do 100% of their arms purchases through China and Russia instead of just 90%.Nov 29, 2010
Liberals really care, don't they Dale? America is being "cared" into the status of a banana republic.
Contrary to the promises, Obamacare is already raising health care costs for everyone and the death panels are inevitable. You've obviously never read the bill.Nov 19, 2010
The partisan hacks at the Tribune wouldn't print this rebuttal:
"To those hoping for a return to Republican government, here's what you can expect: After the Tea Party purges the liberal infestation of the Republican Party, we'll be returning to an era of prosperity similar to when the Republicans controlled the house and senate during the Clinton years when they forced Slick Willie to be fiscally responsible and give up on socialist concepts like 'HillaryCare'".Sep 15, 2010
Not only is it OK to be gay, it seems like it's regarded as a virtue nowadays.Aug 13, 2010
