As long as Senator David Vitter, a client of the DC Madame – keeps his job – then Republicans should shut up on Anthony Weiner

In an interview with the New York Post – thoroughly embarrassed New York Congressman Anthony Weiner again confirmed that he is NOT resigning over the Twitter lewd photo scandal – and a new poll out in his Congressional district shows his constituents support him.

Welcome to the United States – a nation of 80-year-old bricklayers, burger-flippers, and Wal-Mart workers

Remember the days when people retired in their fifties and sixties? Or their seventies?

If you want workers’ rights – move to South Africa...

American workers are screwed. If you want workers’ rights – move to South Africa. Wal Mart just inked a new deal to open up stores across South Africa – but in order to get the deal done – Wal Mart had to make some concessions –honoring union contracts among workers. And it’s not only in South Africa – Wal Mart lets workers unionize all over the world in Brazil – Argentina – China – and the United Kingdom – everywher

In our “Ways to fix the economy that our politicians are ignoring” news – two new reports suggest that raising the minimum wage could do wonders for the American economy. The reports – one form the University of Massachusetts – the other from the University of Cal Berkeley – shoot down the myth that a hike in the minimum wage results in fewer jobs – calling this “disemployment” theory baseless.

“America is absolutely awash with easily obtainable firearms,” says Al Qaeda
