    Good grief! They already can have you work 80 hours in a two-week period (if you sign for it)--which can mean a LOT of hours in the first week depending on when your days off are-- and most of us need the second week to recover. How about six 12-hour days, with a few hours off for church --or how did that go?

    For once, I'm really impressed with Shrub and his superb organizational skills. Here he is,smack in the middle of planning a war, dealing with a national tragedy, trying to jump-start the economy.....and he still has time to think up new ways to stick it to working people. WOW.

    Can you believe it? Why at this time? Why do it now? The CEO's are not hourly wage earners. Can you see how hospitals can have a good time with this one? This is unbelievable!

    This administration is making war on three fronts. One front is Iraq, the second is Korea, the third is against the working person. Ironically, it is the working person for the most part who is expected to pay for and die in the other two wars. Also ironic is the fact that no matter how the first two wars turn out the enemy can expect to get billions in financial aid. The citizen, warrior, worker can expect to pay higher taxes and have his/her wages and benefits cut.

    Thank you, Oramar, for this very eloquent assessment. It's all about big business.....never MIND that that it is us, the working class, who has to not only fight our government's dirty little wars..but also has to sell our souls in order to put a roof over our heads, food in our kids' mouths and clothes on their backs.

    This is horrible! How is Bush going to jump-start the economy by decreasing the pay of the average Joe? I think everyone even the COE of big companies and himself experiences hourly working for a week. Maybe then he will change his mind.
