    They want to Focus on companies in distress. They are Vultures that buy a company 10 cents on the dollar drain all the funds and close the company. The employees have to file for unemployment have no health insurance and we pay for everything.

    Ol' Yeller, I agree with you that the current Republican party More precisely, the tea party element) has become unforgiving of those who do not toe the line. It is amusing how quickly your fellow Democrats are throwing Lieberman under the bus for exactly the same thing. And please read you last several totally undermine any credibility that you might have with the childish name calling that you stoop to. And you talk about common courtesy? Wow.

    "LOL. That comment was taken directly from Wikipedia. Hilarious."

    Pointed out and ridiculed when someone on here does it... defended and excused when rand paul does it.

    Tampa Tim is a poster on CNN political ticker- results of his taking a partial sentence from Wikipedia and using it in a post- chatisement by tom I the self appointed republicant partisan policeman.
    rand paul is a US Senator- results of his plagirizing whole sections from Wikipedia to use in his speeches and articles and claim as his own- defended and excused by tom I the self appointed republicant partisan policeman.

    Now THAT is Hilarious...

    If you liberals (ie TT, Thunk a What, Dutch etc....) keep denegrating "Free Enterprise" , Your government handouts will be in jeopardy. Then what hand will feed you?
    -------– (sarcasm alert)
    Yeah that's right. Free Enterprise always benefits society and the workers. Walmart employees are just being trained in tough love. They should buck-up, not get sick, and be happy for the few coins thrown their way. It's good for them.

    There is a new group of baggers threatening the American way of life, Idiots Anonymous, or IA. Their motto is, "In Kochs we Trust." They claim to be free enterprise but will support any measure that attacks small business.

    "Other than the war on terror, Timmy, tell me one issue where he voted against "democratic causes". You are too awesome sometimes."
    He voted against the "Middle Class Tax Cut Act" of 2012.
    He voted against the "Prohibits Increase in Interest Rates for Student Loans" in 2012.

    And, of course, there's much more: i.e. voting against SNAP, 30 Percent minimum tax, etc.

    Dutch, why don't you ask Obama why he named Immelt to his Council on Jobs when GE paid zero federal taxes? $14 billion in profits, no taxes, all legal. But hey, GE, until 2013, owned NBC and hence MSNBC, and who can argue with the power of friendly media? It works both ways.
