Imagine my shock....
Scott Walker set to make political trip to Israel in spring
I would like to imagine a president who stands unapologetically for the United States and puts the United States 1st, 2nd, and 3rd - one who actually cares about American more than some shitty little illegal nation in the middle east!
KENOSHA (WITI) — Amazon is now hiring for more than 1,000 full-time positions for its more than one million square foot fulfillment center under construction in Kenosha.
At the facility, Amazon employees will pick, pack and ship small items to customers like books, electronics or consumer goods. Associates will work alongside innovative technologies, including Amazon robotics that will be used on a daily basis to fulfill customer orders.
“This is an exciting time for Wisconsin, the Kenosha area, and Amazon. These jobs are invaluable to the Kenosha community and part of the foundation on which our state will grow and prosper for years to come. Amazon is a great asset to Wisconsin and I’m thrilled that so many good, family supporting jobs are now available for our dedicated workforce,” Governor Scott Walker said....
Sooo, just what does Comrade Scott Walker consider a "family supporting job"?
Bosman said the development would create at least 1,100 full-time jobs.
“These are good-paying jobs, a lot of good-paying jobs,” Bosman said. “It’s not just a big, empty box. This is a very high quality company, a very high quality developer, and I’m very pleased to welcome them both to Kenosha. It’s a very big deal.”
According to Amazon job postings, jobs in their warehouses — called fulfillment centers — pay starting salaries of about $11.25 an hour, or $23,000 a year, along with benefits.
Bosman said the average wage at the facility will be “north of $13 an hour.” He said about 850 of the positions will be warehouse jobs, with other jobs including technicians, computer technicians and managment.
He said the development also includes the possibility of future expansion....
So, according to Walker $11.25 an hour is a good paying "family supporting job" or the Mayor of Kenosha saying that the average wage will be "north of $13.00 an hour" including the skilled workers and management to arrive at this "average". Lets say after a year the guy starting at $11.25 an hour is making $13.00 an hour. $13.00 an your works out to $520.00 a week gross pay - or around $375.00 per week take home pay. So according to Scott Walker, the infamous communist union busting "right to worker", $1500.00 a month is a "family supporting" wage! The average two bedroom apartment in Kenosha rents for $778.00 per month. https://www.rentjungle.com/average-rent-in-kenosha-rent-trends/ Lets take this "family supporting" pay and deduct the rent and we have a whopping $722.00 per month or $180.00 a week for a family to use to pay utilities, food, clothing, automobile, insurance, gas, medical co-pays, etc... This is the life that Comrade Walker expects you to live and the unthinking masses support this communist bastard!
More than 300 veteran Republican lawmakers, operatives and consultants have filed a friend of the court brief at the Supreme Court in support of same-sex marriage late Thursday.
The amicus brief, organized by former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman, was filed for the four same-sex marriage cases the Court will hear on April 28 that could legalize the unions nationwide. In 2013, Mehlman marshaled a similar effort for the case that overturned California’s Proposition 8, which had banned same-sex marriage in the state.
Among the signatories are 23 current and former Republicans members of the House of Representatives and Senate and seven current and former Governors. Sens. Susan Collins and Mark Kirk have signed onto the brief, as has Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. Other notables include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal and billionaire GOP mega-donor David Koch.
The 2013 brief included 131 signatures, featured many former top aides to Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, including his general counsel and two senior advisors. The list has now grown to 303 signatories...
Just in case there are readers of this blog who still believe that the Republican Party is somehow conservative or "Christian".
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Republican lawmakers are ready to welcome Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before US Congress on Tuesday, but question whether US President Barack Obama’s truly supports Tel Aviv, US Senator John Barrasso said in a statement on Monday...
Senator Barrasso. President Obama's job is to support the people of the United States, not a foreign government. For that matter, so is yours. But if you really feel that your mission in life is to support Tel Aviv I invite you and all the other Israel-firsters in Congress to immediately board a plane and MOVE THERE PERMANENTLY! No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot and will not serve the American people. A friend of Israel is no friend of America. In these dark times America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third!
Once again Wisconsin is making headlines for attacks on working people.
Right to Work legislation is basically a means for freeloaders to take the benefits of unions without paying for the costs associated with getting those benefits and in this "me" oriented society, it will undoubtedly lead the destruction of virtually all labor unions. Any working person who supports this legislation is a complete moron and is working against his or her own best interests. You see, even if you work in a non union job, a huge part of why your wages and benefits are what they are is due to the company wanting to keep the union out. Once the unions are gone, there is no reason for businesses to compete against union wages and benefits and what do you think will happened to your pay and benefits then? HELLO!!!!
Just look at what has happened to pay and benefits of working people in the last 50 years in terms of real dollars adjusted for inflation. As union membership declines, as unions lose power, what has happened to wages and benefits? THINK ABOUT IT! I have heard so many ridiculous attacks on unions, but one that takes the cake went like this. I had a woman tell me that the reason her family was in dire financial circumstances was because of the greed of unions. I asked her to explain. She said that her husband worked at a brewery that went on strike, due to the "greed of unions" and her husband was forced to find another job and took a much lower paying job. The implication was that the union strike caused the union workers to lose their jobs, but you see, I happened to know that the said brewery was still union and that the union workers did not lose their jobs. So the reality of the situation was that the union workers SACRIFICED during the strike in order to get/keep the pay and benefits necessary to raise a family, but her husband was unwilling to sacrifice during this strike and instead quit and took a lower paying job - guess what - he made his own bed, it was not the fault of the union - it was HIS FAULT, it was not the greed of the union, it was HIS GREED in not wanting to sacrifice during the strike. This is the mentality of people opposed to unions!
Remember when this lying communist Scott Walker said he was not in favor of "right to work" legislation? Remember when it was only about "public sector" unions which supposedly had no right to collectively bargain?
Israel gave the go ahead to an American energy company to start oil drilling in disputed area of Golan Heights, seizing an opportunity as Syria remains occupied with fighting terrorism in the region, a political analyst tells Sputnik Arabic.
Political analyst and expert on the Golan, Ayman Abu Jabal, said Israel took advantage of the conflict in Syria and the fact that the Syrian government is fully occupied with the fight against terrorist groups. Israel endorsed the company Afek Oil to start oil exploration in the occupied region of the Golan Heights, the analyst told Sputnik Arabic.
According to him the oil exploration will result in irreversible damage to the environment of the region. He believes that Israel wants the oil in order to stop being dependant on imported oil and to pose a more significant role in the region.
Once again the ancient axiom: "Qui Bono" - WHO BENEFITS - who benefits from all this "terrorism"? When you figure that out, then you know who is REALLY BEHIND IT!
Gaza civil defense officials say the dam was opened without any notification overnight, and forced at least 80 families out of their homes and into a nearby refugee camp. It also destroyed considerable farmland in the area.
There must be some lowlife Israeli bastard in the IDF that stays awake at night thinking of ways to make the lives of these poor Palestinians in Gaza worse than it was the day before! What is most disgusting is that there are people in the USA who dare to claim that it is the duty of Christians to support this illegal, immoral, and anti-Christ state of Israel!
NEW YORK – New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's administration is negotiating with a group of ultra-Orthodox Jews over how to regulate an age-old circumcision ritual while still preserving religious freedom.
In this so-called oral suction, the circumciser sucks the blood from the infant's cut. Health officials have linked the rite to 17 cases of herpes in babies since 2000. Two died and two others suffered brain damage.
Rabbi A. Romi Cohn says he's had no infections after performing 35,000 circumcisions. He believes the infected infants may have contracted herpes before the ritual.
Cohn says he takes sterility precautions as strict as those for medical procedures.
Each year, officials estimate more than 3,000 city babies are circumcised using this method.
Schoolteachers in Texas will be allowed to use lethal force against students without risking legal repercussions if a new bill being considered in the Lone Star State’s legislature becomes a law.
The bill –HB 868, or the “Teacher’s Protection Act” – affords educators legal immunity in the unlikely event that they happen to kill any of their students during school-sanctioned events.
Specifically, the bill – introduced to the Texas State Legislature on January 22 by Rep. Dan Flynn (R-Canton) – says “an educator is justified in using force or deadly force on school property, on a school bus or at a school-sponsored event in defense of the educator’s person or in defense of students of the school that employs the educator if, under the circumstances as the educator reasonably believes them to be, the educator would be justified…in using force or deadly force, as applicable, in defense of the educator or students.”
Indeed, the language does not limit any hypothetical action on the educator’s part to be done in self-
defense: the proposed bill actually allows teachers to use deadly force on children if they believe another student or their self is in danger.
As of August 2014, Texas was among eight states in the country where laws allow school employees to carry firearms on campus, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. And, as the Houston Chronicle pointed out this week, teachers in Texas are already granted immunity if they assault a student, and the “use of force, but not deadly force, against a [student] is justified.”
If approved, Rep. Flynn’s law would enhance the current legislation in order to let teachers get off the hook – not just for striking a student, but actually killing them.
Monty Exter – a lobbyist with the state’s largest educator group, the Association of Texas
Professional Educators (ATPE) – told the Chronicle that Flynn’s proposal wouldn’t actually change much since the Lone Star State already lets adults kill one another if done in self-defense.
Even still, Exter said the issue should be brought up locally by school boards, not the state legislature.
“We understand he’s trying to carve out some liability protections. But, we can’t see that the liability protection in that particular bill is any different than the protection that exists in law for a regular citizen,” the lobbyist said of Flynn’s proposed law.
“Educators in Texas actually do have some legal protections that do allow them to use physical force to protect themselves and protect others, as long as the use of physical force is reasonable,” added Paul Tapp, a managing attorney with ATPE.
The Teacher’s Protection Act isn’t the only one of Flynn’s proposals to make headlines lately: the politician is also looking to make sure no “foreign laws” are honored in the United States legal system by touting another bill, HB 670, authored by the Republican in an apparent attempt to keep certain religions from having any influence in the courts.
“There is no question the Judeo-Christian heritage we covet and aim to protect is under attack,”Flynn wrote last year. “We the American people must wake up and recognize the Spiritual Warfare raging in America. We must strengthen those American principles and traditions that made us so prosperous and free, as it is only a matter of time before the same kind of cultural supplanting is manifested within our shores.”
If approved, Flynn said that proposal “will require our Texas Judicial System to only allow American Law on American Soil in our Texas Courts.”
Everyone should listen to what this young girl has to say. If you doubt her solution, study the history of Germany. When Adolph Hitler came to power in the 1930's, Germany was in such debt and inflation was so high that people were taking wheelbarrows full of money to buy a loaf of bread, unemployment was off the charts, and the country was on the verge of complete collapse! Hitler got rid of the private banks and did pretty much exactly what this girl suggests and in a few years Germany not only had no debt, no unemployment, and had become an economic world power. Now you know why Hitler has been portrayed as the most evil man that has ever lived!
