    Just glad to see the House actually adopt this Bill....here's hoping the Senate pass it, yet alone, bring it to the floor.

    Dear François Hollande,

    Remember that time you said you would make it harder to fire people. **** getting real now, with companies preparing to fire as many as possible before it kicks in. You know this famous french auto company? Now you haz a temper tantrum over this?

    It's called

    SUPPLY AND DEMAND.

    You can't keep increasing production and supply when there is no demand. Much less keep the company sustainable. So in temporarily saving some jobs for political capital, you are going to cost everyone at that company their jobs.

    Math is a *****.

    Dox,

    ^Or just like American's need to keep increasing it's military budget over other domestic expenses.

    The best example of creating something when there is no real demand for it in during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. $3 billion given to the Mujahadeen to fight the Russians, to train and arm them too. Just because they took our money and training doesn't mean they are our friends. The Soviets would have been defeated without the US intervention. Instead it helped the Taliban take Kabul, Al-Qaida rise to power, and Osama Bin Laden to cause the 9/11 attacks because of blowback from so much military intervention in the Middle East that killed civilians and armed the wrong people for the politician agenda of America. This is why I assert 9/11 is really America's legacy during the Cold War coming to bite it in the butt, 9/11 was the first time Americans had to question directly whether or not their military foreign policy had something wrong with it.

    I agree somewhat with your post, we have always seemed to not figure out our true enemies until its too late....that has always been our history, but we don't know for sure that the Soviet Union would have been defeated....I think they would have pulled out years later after not being able to solidify a win there.....much like we have done in our 2 wars there....I guess you could say that capturing Saddam Hussein and killing Bin Laden are both wins...but neither will do much in the true sense of "freedom" as we know it in Iraq and Afghanistan....the Sunni and Shia will continue to fight for power in Iraq, and the tribal leaders will continue to fight for power in Afghanistan....not much has changed. Except that Saddam was a secular dictator....so the Sunni and Shia had to keep it quiet.

    Greece is wrecked, and USA is looking to go next if it keeps up with this corrupt two-party system. Printing money, borrowing money, the dollar is already wrecked...only thing starving off a monetary collapse short term is printing money and China and Japan not selling their US debt? :dry::csad::dry: Just 100% screwed...

    There won't be a need for the Senate to fillibuster. Harry Reid already stated he won't bring it to the floor for a vote.

    Well I do remember reading there is a 98% chance that Greece will default on its debt by 2016.

    Republicans will never allow something to take that many profits away from their corporations. Obama should have done it when there was a Democratic majority in both houses in 2009. I think the timing for this now is just for an election year.

    Wait, what? Did you read the stories? The audit the fed bill passed through a REPUBLICAN House of Representatives. Now Harry Reid, the DEMOCRAT majority leader has promised that the Democrat controlled Senate won't let it reach the floor. Take off the party blinders, mate. Both sides are controlled by corporations, even your beloved Obama.

    Wait, this wasn't about Obama letting the Bush era tax cuts expire? Ron Paul actually got the passed a member of the House? I wonder how Obama feels about it?

    No, they did that one backwards....passed the Senate and now headed for the House....it won't pass the House...but they will at least vote on it...

    Ron Paul's legislation passed the House....but won't even make it to the floor of the Senate for a vote...
