There's a two class system in the Democrat party, too....

1) Really affluent, over-educated white people like John Kerry, the Clintons, Obama, Wasserman-Schultz & Nancy Pelosi, and most of Hollywood

2) Minorities

Impressive. A conservative who acknowledges minorities. How did the RNC do with minorities in the last election?

From now on, the Republicans are never going to get more than 10 to 20 percent of the Negro vote and they don't need any more than that...but Republicans would be shortsighted if they weakened enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. The more Negroes who register as Democrats in the South, the sooner the Negrophobe whites will quit the Democrats and become Republicans. That's where the votes are. Without that prodding from the blacks, the whites will backslide into their old comfortable arrangement with the local Democrats

I just checked my bank statement and I am pretty sure it does not qualify me as affluent and last time I checked, I am pretty sure I am not a minority ...... guess you need a 3rd category.

Sixty years ago the Korean War ended. This is a perfect example of Capitalism vs Socialism. One system a failure, the other a thriving Democracy.

Competition is at the heart of a Capitalist society. It's the people who can't keep up who demand the classes be equal. People should be rewarded for their success. There is a reason there is Gold, Silver and Bronze handed out at the Olympics. It's recognition for the hard work that got them to the podium. There should be a reward.

That goes for life as well.

Bear, I have a good read for you. It's called, "Winning Through Intimidation" and don't let the title fool you. Be confident and assertive. I read it over 30 years ago and the principles apply today.

Step right up, get those Government jobs while there HOT !!
Those are jobs that used to be government jobs.

Isn't privatizing government jobs a brainchild of the right?

From the article you posted.

"The biggest offenders came from those companies receiving direct federal contracts. Some 560,000 workers in those firms make $12 an hour or less, says the report."

Do want those contracts brought back so those jobs will be government jobs? Or do you want the government to stop going with the low bidder?

What is your answer to changing this?

'Snap,
While Total CAPITALISM, or as I Often like to refer to it as,...........CAPITALISM at ANY COST,..........does NOT have the market cornered on a Thriving DEMOCRACY,...NO Not At ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Before I present to you a Better Country than the Good ol' USA, I'll say that Minus the US Military (the best in the world), the USA couldn't KiSS NORWAY ASSS ! (Which has everything else as good as this overrated country, with it's CAPITALISM at any COST......claim to fame !

Last time I checked, ' NORGE ' had a thriving democracy, was a Capitalistic country,..........minus the Capitalism at ANY COST...BULL SH!TE !

OH, and before you start with the 50% taxation in NORWAY, I'd gladly pay 17% more in Taxes to NOT have to worry about ANYTHING, like GREAT healthcare, retirement, clean environment, thier list goes on and on. (Not to mention their gorgeous Blonde women.
SO,
Pay 33% in taxes and still worry about a lot of things, like here in the good ol' USA
or,
pay 50% in taxes and worry about NOTHING !!

PS,......They like UNIONS.
PPS,.....There Minimum wage is now $ 21.00 per hour(if i'm reading it right)

Norway...lol. I've been there, not impressed!! Very high cost of living just to basically "exist." Every day living structure with no frills in life because working people have to take care of others who can't or refuse to take care of themselves...Far from the American dream our ancestors came to the USA for.

No frills ?

while i'm sure there are some city problems....crowds etc,.........cops carry NO Guns, it's THE Healthiest country in the world, excellent retirement, a #### load of paid time off, and the country is in the BLACK. I'd have to imagine with a MINIMUM Wage @ $ 21.00, and a healthy middle class, that makes up for the high cost of living.
I mean, sure, you can probably rent an apartment for $ 275 a month in backwater Mississippi, complete with all the toxic drinking water you can handle.
So, 'Black...............you're Impressed with WHAT ? Detroit,....a national obesity problem, murders everywhere ??
Helll, even our neighbors to the North CANADA, are laughing thier ASS'S off at us (minus the big city ptoblems like in Toronto/Montreal.
