If you want to put Rick Santorum with the tea baggers i'll go along with you.  The guy is a snake and I can't stand him.  Guys like him give the Tea Party a bad rap.  All in all I'd rather have what the Tea Party stands for rather than most of the repubs and dems.

I don't understand why they can't find a candidate who can support a fiscally conservative agenda, understand America's role on the Global Stage, and say that he supports all Americans having the personal freedom to pursue happiness and equal protection under the law.

Because just like Sen. Obama when he ran in 2008.  Speaking a "populist" agenda sounds good and gets attention but in the end you need wall street and they are not having that candidate change to much of how they operate.  Simple as that.

Someone needs to speak it, get elected, and then do it.

If not we are DOOMED as a country.

Herman Cain tried to get footing but Newt and Mitt cockblocked him (with their old white money) with charges too big to ignore but  too big too fight off (notice they NEVER fought him on policy).  I was consistent in voting Cain for Pres in the primary even though he was no longer on the ballot.  Common sense seems to be what we all want but what we REFUSE to vote for anymore.  According to the results in my county I am seriously in the minority when it comes to commen sense.  It appears that political offices are gained now by reputation and sound bites.  How sad a state of affairs our Nation has fallen in to.

Part of the problem IMO......49% to 55% last several elections.  Then through on the straight party line voter, and the ones who vote for Randy because they know his Mom or like his hair and Bingo.....we have a Congress and Administration full of useless idiots.

It's a nation wide issue JBS, maybe pig nuts are being consumed in secret across this country.

I also voted CAIN in the Primary.  There was no one else left in the field that I wanted to vote for after he pulled out.

You are incorrect on who cockblocked CAIN.

That was from our Dear Leader EL Presidente Obama.

The fine women who made the accusations just happened to live in Chicago in the same building as David Axelrod.  The other women was employed by the US government, and also had ties to Democratic concerns.

Obama knew he couldn't beat a true black conservative who was an ACTUAL rags to riches story - let alone one with an actual plan to change the course of the country.

I really wish Herman would have stuck in, but I respect his decision to spare his family more and more false accusations.  Axelrod knew a person of character wouldn't put his family through that, so it was childs play from his dirty politics handbook to bully him out.

Now all Obama voters - that is the HOPE and CHANGE you voted for - and I hope you are ashamed of yourselves.

The Rise of the Permanent Temp Economy
By ERIN HATTON
Politicians across the political spectrum herald “job creation,” but frightfully few of them talk about what kinds of jobs are being created. Yet this clearly matters: According to the Census Bureau, one-third of adults who live in poverty are working but do not earn enough to support themselves and their families.
A quarter of jobs in America pay below the federal poverty line for a family of four ($23,050). Not only are many jobs low-wage, they are also temporary and insecure. Over the last three years, the temp industry added more jobs in the United States than any other, according to the American Staffing Association, the trade group representing temp recruitment agencies, outsourcing specialists and the like.
Low-wage, temporary jobs have become so widespread that they threaten to become the norm. But for some reason this isn’t causing a scandal. At least in the business press, we are more likely to hear plaudits for “lean and mean” companies than angst about the changing nature of work for ordinary Americans.
How did we arrive at this state of affairs? Many argue that it was the inevitable result of macroeconomic forces — globalization, deindustrialization and technological change — beyond our political control. Yet employers had (and have) choices. Rather than squeezing workers, they could have invested in workers and boosted product quality, taking what economists call the high road toward more advanced manufacturing and skilled service work. But this hasn’t happened. Instead, American employers have generally taken the low road: lowering wages and cutting benefits, converting permanent employees into part-time and contingent workers, busting unions and subcontracting and outsourcing jobs. They have done so, in part, because of the extraordinary evangelizing of the temp industry, which rose from humble origins to become a global behemoth.
The story begins in the years after World War II, when a handful of temp agencies were started, largely in the Midwest. In 1947, William Russell Kelly founded Russell Kelly Office Service (later known as Kelly Girl Services) in Detroit, with three employees, 12 customers and $848 in sales. A year later, two lawyers, Aaron Scheinfeld and Elmer Winter, founded a similarly small outfit, Manpower Inc., in Milwaukee. At the time, the future of these fledgling agencies was no foregone conclusion. Unions were at the peak of their power, and the protections that they had fought so hard to achieve — workers’ compensation, pensions, health benefits and more — had been adopted by union and nonunion employers alike.
But temp leaders were creating a new category of work (and workers) that would be exempt from such protections.
To avoid union opposition, they developed a clever strategy, casting temp work as “women’s work,” and advertising thousands of images of young, white, middle-class women doing a variety of short-term office jobs. The Kelly Girls, Manpower’s White Glove Girls, Western Girl’s Cowgirls, the American Girls of American Girl Services and numerous other such “girls” appeared in the pages of Newsweek, Business Week, U.S. News & World Report, Good Housekeeping, Fortune, The New York Times and The Chicago Daily Tribune. In 1961 alone, Manpower spent $1 million to put its White Glove Girls in the Sunday issue of big city newspapers across the country.
The strategy was an extraordinary success.
A growing number of people call for bringing outsourced jobs back to America. But if they return as shoddy, poverty-wage jobs — jobs designed for “Never-Never Girls” rather than valued employees — we won’t be better off for having them. If we want good jobs rather than just any jobs, we need to figure out how to preserve what is useful and innovative about temporary employment while jettisoning the anti-worker ideology that has come to accompany it.

Yeah, it could never have been the greater majority of Republican's that are moderate that don't want a tea bagger.  You fail and have to blame the evil Obama one so you don't have to see your failure.

I no longer live in Deerfield, but after seeing the tour buses line up year after year for the Bud Light Fest I will tell you that Fry has misled you... they are bull testicals.  And No... I have never consumed one of those, but plenty of Bud Light at those events through the 10 years I resided there has found its way into my system.

No seriously is that you suggestion?
