    At least you admit to being irrational. I won't hold it against all liberals.

    Its what they are doing. They give a few million to the DNC, in turn they send a lobbyist to Washington seeing an amendment from those in that party that favors their company. The DNC can't say no for it wants that money so they agree to push for the amendment.

    Look at how General Electric pay NO yearly taxes. They donated heavily to the DNC and Dems directly, in turn they get amendment (Loopholes) put into bills before congress that favored them.

    Exactly. It's not uncommon for many groups to donate to BOTH parties. They want to cover all their bases.

Please find me evidence from unbiased sources where any Tea Party member said that a business should pay a quarter an hour and on what planet would people go work for such a place. While you're looking, in reality land, here's how things would work. Company A would offer an amount as would their competitor. Then the 2 would compete for the best employees. If you're really good, you can pit one employer against another for your services. Sort of like how free agency works in the sports world. If you're an all star, you're paid like an all star. If you're a slug, you get paid like a slug. Do you think the Phillies would have given Ryan Howard a $125 contract if he hit like John McDonald? But brain dead liberals like yourself need the minimum wage because for some strange reason you think you have a right to a job and that everyone should be paid the same. You need the minimum wage because without it, you'd have to rely on hard work to get ahead something none of you are willing to do.
    My careers have often been sold to the highest bidder, aka: the employer. That is how it works. Even in my industry my company pays way above average to get the best they can get and experience less turn over. The competition has made me offers, and I continue to pass on them. That is how it works. Some people just don't get it.

Their mission is simply to reestablish fiscal responsibility and obedience to the Constitution. They run more minority candidates that either the Dems or GOP. Perhaps you should attend a meeting and find out the truth instead of regurgitating talking points. And as far as your rant posed as a question, isn't what you're complaining about exactly what you do?
    Good catch. I should have picked up on that. Guess I over looked that in her line of postings that she was using a broad stereotyping of any one on the right and demonizng them just as she accussed us of doing to her and the left.

    Yes.

    Back to the original subject, I was scrolling down facebook just now, and found something from Upworthy which offended them. McDonalds answers the question of the OP. Common sense stuff without being mean. They don't want their employees throwing McFlurries in their faces. lol.

    Learn to read. I'm talking about when you all quote a DUer and then say "See? See? This is what being a liberal is about." For all we know, it's a conservative mole. I know I've had an itch to go on DU and make an outrageous post just to get you all stirred up. I haven't done it though because deep down I am a good girl.

    But some of these companies hold liberal values. Some companies come straight out and support gay marriage. Some of them gives same sex couples benefits. They either see some of this as somehow beneficial to their company (not necessarily the open politics) OR they're liberals.
