So I can't comment on what news reports have reported? I wasn't there, I don't know who was in the crowd, I only got that from the news.

Uh no. Let's read a little better. The NEWS mentioned the racial makeup of the crowd and described the situation. Like I said, I wasn't there, so I couldn't have described the attendees. The media did.

The article also states that in other speeches, biden uses the metaphor of "unshackling" the middle-class. Is that metaphor racist? Again, you're the one who is deciding to interpret it as racist. This petty bullshit is a big reason why politics sucks so bad.

If there's one thing Republicans hate, it's people who are racist.

I guess I can't vote for Obama now, because he hates black people TOO much, might as well vote Romney.

I don't think it's even a contest anymore; Fox is FAR from the worst network on television.

Let's just say I enjoy being an asshole to "some hypothetical person who feels justified in defending these comments."

Of course I welcome anyone else thinking this is a pathetic display for MSNBC.

It's almost as if they're testing people's tolerance for comments like this from the side that usually cries foul for this type of thing.

I'm honestly not trying to prod anyone in particular here, if that's what you mean.

I, for one, also find that a pathetic display by MSNBC and the co-host of that show.
Ive never seen or heard of this The Cycle or of co-Host Touré. (Touré?)

However, I'm not sure if i trust your proclamation that "Fox is FAR from the worst network on television" based on this pathetic display by MSNBC

oh man, the cloud of idiots descending upon my poor charlotte is almost too much to bear.

Quote :
"CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Some women are upset that the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte is not providing child care.

The Charlotte Observer reported (http://bit.ly/SihepZ) that Susie Shannon of California plans to attend with her 4-year-old daughter, Gracie.

Shannon said she is not happy that the convention will not provide child care or allow children on the convention floor.

National Organization for Women chapters in southern California say the convention is discriminating against mothers.

Convention spokeswoman Joanne Peters says there is a list of private child care providers on an official vendor directory. She says facilities are being provided for nursing mothers.

Peters says conventions usually require credentials for anyone on the floor for security reasons.

Shannon says the party should not force women to choose between their children and participating in the convention."

But there is child care there, so she's obviously just mad that she can't have her daughter on the convention floor.

Probably not the best place for a 4yo... I figured it would be easy to understand the safety/liability concerns.

I think you're in the wrong thread...

Let's see, we have:

1) A liberal
2) A stupid/irresponsible thing said
3) Him being fired
4) A loss of credibility?

Yes.

Seems I put this in the right place, and this is hardly me outraged. I'm merely pointing out "one more down."

You'll see a lot more too! They'll be dropping like flies soon as it becomes more apparent Obama is history along with many Democrats in congress.

Red alert, liberals.

Quote :
" David Siegel, the founder and CEO of real estate company Westgate Resorts on Monday threatened to fire some employees if Barack Obama is reelected and carries out his plan to raise taxes on the so-called rich.

The following are highlights from an email message sent by Siegel to his staff that was obtained and verified as authentic by Gawker:

Subject: Message from David Siegel
Date:Mon, 08 Oct 2012 13:58:05 -0400 (EDT)
From: [David Siegel]
To: [All employees]

To All My Valued Employees,

As most of you know our company, Westgate Resorts, has continued to succeed in spite of a very dismal economy. There is no question that the economy has changed for the worse and we have not seen any improvement over the past four years. In spite of all of the challenges we have faced, the good news is this: The economy doesn't currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of the same Presidential administration. Of course, as your employer, I can't tell you whom to vote for, and I certainly wouldn't interfere with your right to vote for whomever you choose. In fact, I encourage you to vote for whomever you think will serve your interests the best.

Now, the economy is falling apart and people like me who made all the right decisions and invested in themselves are being forced to bail out all the people who didn't. The people that overspent their paychecks suddenly feel entitled to the same luxuries that I earned and sacrificed 42 years of my life for. Yes, business ownership has its benefits, but the price I've paid is steep and not without wounds. Unfortunately, the costs of running a business have gotten out of control, and let me tell you why: We are being taxed to death and the government thinks we don't pay enough. We pay state taxes, federal taxes, property taxes, sales and use taxes, payroll taxes, workers compensation taxes and unemployment taxes. I even have to hire an entire department to manage all these taxes. The question I have is this: Who is really stimulating the economy? Is it the Government that wants to take money from those who have earned it and give it to those who have not, or is it people like me who built a company out of his garage and directly employs over 7000 people and hosts over 3 million people per year with a great vacation?

Obviously, our present government believes that taking my money is the right economic stimulus for this country. The fact is, if I deducted 50% of your paycheck you'd quit and you wouldn't work here. I mean, why should you? Who wants to get rewarded only 50% of their hard work? Well, that's what happens to me.

Business is at the heart of America and always has been. To restart it, you must stimulate business, not kill it. However, the power brokers in Washington believe redistributing wealth is the essential driver of the American economic engine. Nothing could be further from the truth and this is the type of change they want.

So where am I going with all this? It's quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company. Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.

So, when you make your decision to vote, ask yourself, which candidate understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn't? Whose policies will endanger your job? Answer those questions and you should know who might be the one capable of protecting and saving your job. While the media wants to tell you to believe the "1 percenters" are bad, I'm telling you they are not. They create most of the jobs. If you lose your job, it won't be at the hands of the "1%"; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country.

You see, I can no longer support a system that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, so will your opportunities. If that happens, you can find me in the Caribbean sitting on the beach, under a palm tree, retired, and with no employees to worry about.

Signed, your boss,

David Siegel"

^that is proof that not all business CEOs are smart people.


Who sends a politically motivated e-mail to 7,000 fucking people and threaten to fire them for voting a certain way? That is balls-deep levels of retarded thinking. That can't be real.

Yeah I don't quite know what to make of it; I just thought it was interesting.

Didn't know what thread to put it in either, and figured this one needed bumping.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/os-darden-part-time-workers-20121007,0,1505128.story

This is interesting too:

Quote :
"In an experiment apparently aimed at keeping down the cost of health-care reform, Orlando-based Darden Restaurants has stopped offering full-time schedules to many hourly workers in at least a few Olive Gardens, Red Lobsters and LongHorn Steakhouses.

Darden said the test is taking place in "a select number" of restaurants in four markets, including Central Florida, but would not give details. The company said there has been no decision made about expanding it.

In an emailed statement, Darden said staffing changes are "just one of the many things we are evaluating to help us address the cost implications health care reform will have on our business. There are still many unanswered questions regarding the health care regulations and we simply do not have enough information to make any decisions at this time."

Analysts say many other companies, including the White Castle hamburger chain, are considering employing fewer full-timers because of key features of the Affordable Care Act scheduled to go into effect in 2014. Under that law, large companies must provide affordable health insurance to employees working an average of at least 30 hours per week.

If they do not, the companies can face fines of up to $3,000 for each employee who then turns to an exchange — an online marketplace — for insurance."

So while his profits and Wall Streets are up, but average income among working class people is stagnant or dropping, it's not the working class that deserves tax breaks, it's the wealthy?

I would definitely do a reply-all if I were one of his employees.

Who on earth feels sorry for him? I didn't see that anywhere.

People may still cling to the supply side economics that obviously doesn't work but that is far from people feeling sorry for him. It's just the misguided thought that as the wealthy improve so to does the middle class.
