Here then is a bit of NEWS, for your oxygen and cognition starved brain:

The Huffington Post | By Sara Gates Posted: 09/09/2013 12:39 pm EDT |

Updated: 09/09/2013 12:39 pm EDT

Released Monday, the 2013 World Happiness Report ranks the happiest countries around the globe, with

Denmark,

(br is Copenhagen in Norway, in Sweden, finland or denmark)

Norway and

Switzerland leading the pack.

Among North American countries,

Canada took sixth place, while

Mexico (16) slightly outranked the

U.S. (17).

Of course, you'll suggest I move to a 'happier' place, but I'll stay here,

"happily" refuted every brain-dead piece of republican and rich dogma your pie-hoel spouts soon to be foolowed, by a seldom used orfice, your wrectum, that's why you are so full of zhit!

In 2012,

Denmark also took the top spot,

receiving the highest combined score on a scale of zero through 10.

This year, scores range from 2.936 (Togo) to 7.693 (Denmark).

Compared to last year,

the 2013 World Happiness Report includes more detailed analysis in a bid to guide

POLICYMAKERS

to take the well-being of [ITS] CITIZENS into account when making decisions.

[NOT just the rich 'citizens']

"There is now a rising worldwide

demand

that policy be more closely aligned with what really matters to people

as they themselves characterize

their well-being,"

BRasRock,

Rave on for Republicans, the rich and their corporations!

Whiz, perhaps you should move to Copenhagen. Bet you can get your meds for free there too, in that socialist utopia, and then you could quit complaining about how cruel life is here in the good ol' USA.

To quote:

"Would you pay $8 for a Big Mac?"

Vouchee,

what has the price cow dung got to do with the prevailing wage rate?

Nothing.

MacDonald's in copenhagen, denmark pays it 'youthful' looking counter workers between $35.00 and $45.00 per hour.

The price of burgers there isn't much more than the price they are here.

Why the high price per wage, per hour...

Everyone has health care, and everyone must contribute to the state 'healthcare plan'.

So...

What is the point about an $8.00 mack?

Again, nothing.

Would you pay $8 for a Big Mac?

Republican economy? Who controls 2/3 of the government? DEMS you fool. So who's economy is this?

Who is calling for mandatory wage increases? What are wage increases to businesses? Who's administration is writing 1000's of new regulations a day? What do these regulations do to businesses? Who's administration put forth a job killing health care bill? Who's adminstration is now handing out waivers to all their buddies because they know it is a middle class job killing bill?

Who's economy is this?

Answers?

Still waiting.

The bigger question:

WHY SHOULD a big mcc COST MORE THAN a quarter, 25 cents?

THE EVEN BIGGER QUESTION THAT SHOULD BE ASKED IS:

When is the last time you ever saw a sign advertising the need for a basic staple in EVERY RESTAURANT:

"COOK WANTED"

Whizzy,

I do believe you hit the nail on its head.

a Turnip is a vegetable of very limited intelligence,

a Turnip knows enough to keep its mouth shut,

a Turnip cannot be coaxed, squeezed or cajoled into producing or obtaining intelligence from this vegetable ..

Chances are you'll get blood out of this turnip before you here anything intelligent from this vegetable...

Must have struck some nerves from these republican business types...

They all whine like a a stuck pig, if you get close to reciting the truth about them.

FYI Whiz tur**** don't have hands to type either so I guess between the two of us we've proven I'm not a turnip. Oh, but I bet you were all smiles thinking how clever you were with that post.

It isn’t possible to reason with a turnip.

Because a turnip is without eyes, ears, or a brain,

and as such it can neither see, hear, or reason.

So what is the sense in arguing sensibilities

if all one has for seeing, hearing and reasoning

is the being of a turnip.

Again, no substance to my points. You can't refute them so you name call!

Whiz the big business man, the hypocrite can't refute them, won't answer the simple questions so he name calls.

Cheese the thesaurus, the hypocrite can't refute them, and also won't answer the questions posed, so it name calls and jabs at typos!

It's like hanging around small toddlers. Don't do or say what they want and your a p o o p y-head.

Answer the questions I posed first. Then name call. Problem is you can't. (And no it isn't because it's beneath you as you try to say. You have no answers.)

Cheesehead,

Please don’t insignificantize Vuachee,

He definitely is as significantly odious, but, not as delightfully odorous as a bean f·ar·t,

Butt,

alas that is where you must end your comparison,

you should not vocabularlize him in the butt end of your rant.

Vuch,

Has anyone heard anything more decerning coming out of Vuchees piehole,

that has as much import as a single

"bean"

as it emaninates from one's rectum?

In case you overlooked an earlier post:

vucheee,

you're a bozo...

you are what you are,

and your cognitive capture is what it is.

O

nada,

zip,

zilch,

blank stare

diddly-squat

nada in there stare

naught in there today stare

naught in there yesterday stare

naught in there tomorrow stare

nothingness stare

nought anything in there yesterday stare

void stare

zero stare

zip stare

zippo stare

goose egg stare

hill of beans smell

insignificancy stare

failure to see stare.

deer in my headlights are expressive of a more intelligence stare than vuchee at his best.

Further Cheese, while you may be a walking thesaurus you may want to consider READING COMPREHENSION!

Brave was talking about a Big Mac at McD's. Would you pay $8 for a Big Mac? Get it now, not a sit down resturant gourmet burger.

Republican economy? Who controls 2/3 of the government? DEMS you fool. So who's economy is this?

Who is calling for mandatory wage increases? What are wage increases to businesses? Who's administration is writing 1000's of new regulations a day? What do these regulations do to businesses?

Who's economy is this Cheese? Really Mr/Mrs Thesaurus, please enlighten us with you vocabularial window dressing.

There you go cheese, another perfect HYPOCRIT!

No substance to your or Whiz's arguements so you tackle a typo. Slick, really shows how intellectually bankrupt you are.

"Please don't compare me to wizzie, he's on meds and received 24 hour care and supervision."

Don't you mean receives? You have to different tenses in that sentence.

People who live in glass houses there cheese....you know the rest.

Eight dollar hamburger have been with us for some time.

Down the road, they've gotten to be $20 bucks.

Braverocks,

you're a poor businessman if you haven't been aware of these little facets of the republican economy.

Vuache,

reading over your list, I would venture to say the word you meant to write, was imbecile(s).

The words refers to many people similar in scope and wit as many who utter their limited vocabulary, intelligence and reasoning ability:

to wit you might recognize something or someone akin to you relative to the following:

arrested behind

checked

delayed

dense

dull

feeble-minded

inane

imbecile

late

moronic

stupid

subnormal

underdeveloped

underprivileged

undeveloped.

Please don't compare me to wizzie, he's on meds and received 24 hour care and supervision.

You on the other hand, may not be on medicine, or 24 hr. care, but should be, and

then we all could compare apples and apples, prunes and pralines.

It isn't what it is Whiz! That's a juvenile response at best.

You come out here and espouse all high and mighty all better than thou.

And now, we know, through failure to answer a question, that would NOT give away that anonymity, that you are nothing more than a HYPOCRIT.

Short and sweet are the responses when you have nothing to reply, nothing to plagarize from other sources.

Prove me wrong WHIZ, did everyone make more than that $15/hr you cheer for now?

So you won't answer will you Whiz? Less than $50K I say.

You will sit there and call everyone on this board bozos, morons, imeciles and the like and won't answer a simple question!

What was the pay of these supposed 55 employees and what business? Should matter you're not there anymore.

I'll tell you why you won't answer- YOU ARE A HYPOCRIT!!!

Why am I a bozo whiz?

Is it because I would tell people to get an education?

Is it because I would tell people not to settle if they thought they were under paid?

Is it because I would tell people they are capable of doing better?

Or

Is it because I don't believe, as you apparently do based on your response, that these folks are inherently stupid and can't improve their lot in life without a handout?

I highly doubt you ran a business but I'm sure if you did everyone made about $50K+ a year right? NOPE!

Q:

"Whiz, have you ever owned or managed a business?"

A:

... does running a nearly $1M grossing business for thirty-five plus years

count for much,

and responsibility for employing nearly 55 workers count for anything...

in your book?

just saying......

you inane creature.

If it was me and my business I would fire the lot of them. I would make it clear if you don't show up for work don't bother coming back. You don't like the wage, LEAVE! You are more than free to do so and find better.

What the article proves Whiz is that there is a glut of uneducated people in the US and nothing more. NOBODY is forced to accept any kind of wage. Is there a gun to the head of any employee at McD's? Work here or else? NO!

Bottom line, if you don't have the intelligence to get a better job accept the wage you get or go fill your brain with knowledge and earn a better wage! Novel thought hey Whiz? (I know the last part would require some work on the part of the individual which might be too much for folks like Whiz to tolerate.)
