I don't know about The entire world late but I certainly make the world a better place for those I'm around.

Well, at least the ones smart enough to at least consider my wisdom. For those too dense, well, not even I can help them.

"can you explain what Democrats have done for the middle class?" Anyone with a working knowledge of Google can find that out! As for you not being a republican, are you summarizing again there little buddy?

My intelligence is a gift from God, my finances are personal and the deficit is simple; reduce spending, flatten and broaden the tax rate and eliminate fraud and waste.

Yes, I have something else, I have something else. How did you become so smart? That much college, are you the director of a think tank or what? When did you make your first million? How about the deficit, what do you propose?

Dude, you can talk all the smack you want about Republicians. I don't care.

As part of my Presidency, I'll keep OSHA, and the minimum wage as both do good. You just have to get rid of those who want to politicize both.

Unions, I think should be between the company and employees. I think the NLRB should actually be expanded to 11 members with 5 Dems, 5 Reps and a commissioner appointed by the President, no confirmation necessary. The kicker would be that all decisions would require a 2/3rds majority to pass.

Of course, the first requirement is that all members would have to pass some sort of common sense test, if that's possible.

I'm sorry, that leaves you and Denver out md as i I really don't think even I can help either d you.

Anything else?

I think we should all elect AaronS to be president because he is so smart. Maybe we can make sure he gets some time to get those "filler classes" and he will be even smarter and can fix all of the problems in America today. What do you think Aaron, get rid of minimum wage, OSHA,and of course all of the terrible unions, they are so bad for America. I wish I could afford to be a republican, and on top of that most of the people on here think I am totally anti-democrat. Help me Aaron, surely you know whats best for me and America!

"They don’t stand for Christian values, because JesusChrist stood for love, hope, compassion, acceptance, helping those less fortunate than ourselves, not judging others and forgiveness—traits which the Republican Party seems to strongly oppose.They don’t support of our military,as Republican Presidents have frequently sent our military into pointless wars where hundreds of thousands have been killed, or severely wounded to the point where they will suffer from these disabilities for the rest of their lives.They don’t stand for constitutional values, as they frequently support violating those constitutionally-upheld laws which they disagree with.It’s really easy to come up with a nice slogan, some rhetoric or a tagline that sounds good, but anyone can do that. In one breath conservatives say they’re for a fiscally conservative small government which protects our freedoms, yet their actionsCompletely contradict that.So looking at those actions, they don't stand for the WORKING CLA

_____________REPUBLICANS-------------They don’t stand for freedom, as they continue to support legislation that denies basic freedoms for homosexuals, women and people who follow religions other than Christianity. They don’t stand for small government, as they've recently supported constitutional amendments that define marriage and redefine what constitutes being an American citizen. Not to mention they were the party which orchestrated one of the most intrusive piece of legislation our nation has ever seen—the Patriot Act.

They don’t stand for a fiscally conservative government, especially considering there has yet to be a single Republican president since Eisenhower, who served from 1953-1961, who has balanced the budget. In fact, every Republican president since Eisenhower didn't just increase our deficits— they set records for growth in our national debt. {con't}

If you're referring to me Denver, then once again, you are wrong. I'm not a Republican so I can't answer for them.

I'm curious, you ask what Republicans have done for the middle class, can you explain what Democrats have done for the middle class?

Still nobody has said one thing the republicans has done for the working class, they have done a lot for the strip mine owners, but nothing for the miners. And another thing why are republican ashamed to call themselves a republican?

You were the one that blatantly contradicted yourself dude, not me. I'm sorry you've painted yourself in a corner. It's not my fault you're not smart enough to get out of it. About all your doing is demonstrating why your mythical business failed.

"Often times it is impossible for the SMALL BUSINESS Owner to pay and reward the GREAT EMPLOYEES with the same pay scale of the BUSINESS'S CUSTOMERS..."

In all my employment amd educational experirnce, I've never seen anything about employee pay being based on what their customers make. In fact, y That's about as absurd of a statement as I've heard. No wonder you've only achieved what you term moderate success.

No quit running scared and answer your contradiction. You claimed you paid union wages then turned around and said you couldn't keep employees because you couldn't pay adequate wages. Which is it? Or are you saying union wages aren't adequate?

Aaron, lesson #1. in economics. A small business that serves middle class customers, with middle class wages. The survival of that small business often is directly related to the skills, work, dedication and energy of its EMPLOYEES... Often times it is impossible for the SMALL BUSINESS Owner to pay and reward the GREAT EMPLOYEES with the same pay scale of the BUSINESS'S CUSTOMERS... ""NOW"" PRINT & COPY THIS STATEMENT AND PUT IT ON YOUR REFRIGERATOR. READ IT EVERY HOUR!!!! DUH!

Aaron, below is a repeat of yesterday's 8:22 pm answer to YOU! I don't know how to give you a MORE CLEAR ANSWER. Perhaps you should indulge in a few courses in elementary reading comprehension. DUH! Aaron, you are so full of crap, you are pathetic. My businesses survived mostly because I had excellent employees, and the prevailing wage of MID OHIO VALLEY UNION WORKERS also vastly contributed to my companies survival. {My customers were usually making more than minimum wage.} I can see that it is difficult for you to Intellectually GRASP, BUT, The point is without MOV UNIONS my small businesses wouldn't have survived and my employees wouldn't have had JOBS... I can't teach you the economics of a small business here on the PN&S. Because You are woefully demonstrating your lack of intellectual capacity.

I'll tell you what you can do md. Explain, if you will, why it is you contradicted yourself when you claimed success becaue of union wages but then turned around and said you lost employees because you couldn't pay them enough. Seems to me, you made the statement, it's time to stop running and own it.

All due respect md, I doubt there's very much you could teach me, particularly regarding economics, my next degree once some filler classes are completed.

Aaron, unlike you, MY modest successes have been because of other "WORKING CLASS" people like MYSELF. My employees, My Labor Union Brothers/Sisters, My Customers, My Friends, My Family, and even most importantly, My GOVERNMENT! All of these people have contributed in one way or another to my life. Without them, I would not be enjoying the modest existence that I have today. Without them and the dedication of union people {like you father} to the AMERICAN WORKING CLASS I would be living in a totally different world. ""I DID NOT DO IT ALONE"" --- AGAIN, I can't teach you economics of a SMALL Business here on PN&S. But see if this statement will somehow sink into your thick Skull. I was NOT a FORTUNE 500 COMPANY.

You can save your sympathy md, I don’t need nor want it. Unlike you, my successes are my own. When opportunity presented itself, I took full advantage of it, from my time as a truck driver, to a short stint as a dispatcher and into management for not one but 2 Fortune 500 companies. Along the way, I’ve earned 2 degrees and am currently working on 2 more.

You can also save your lesson on the role of Unions as well. My father was before and after his service in the Pacific during WW2. I know the role Unions have played in the framing of this country. The Unions bear little resemblance to those he shaped.

And you’ve yet to explain your contradiction.

Why?

Aaron, I can feel sorry for you because you are undoubtedly a mis-informed, ill-advised WORKING CLASS person, that thinks that your vast successes in life {AS YOU CLAIM} are solely do to nobody, BUT YOURSELF!!! I believe you have identified yourself as a truck driver. {An honorable hard working class profession} But, I will remind you that it was the UNIONS that established your decent paying {PROFESSION} WITH MANY BENEFITS. WHILE THE UNIONS were ""STRIKING"" the unjust employers, it was ""SCABS"" that were driving their trucks. WHICH WERE YOU????
