    CEO's are making excuses for not hiring American workers. The problem is too many American companies no longer what to invest in American workers. About 20 yrs ago, American companies would train workers or potential employees
    for positions needed in their companies. Now they want a ready-made person and complain when they can't find one. There has been a paradigm shift on investing in Americans.

    Republicans have had leadership. They are called the extremist Rightwing and the Tea Party. When are Moderate Republicans going to stand up for their values. Sorry, I forgot the fear factor of the being gutted by their own party.

    Wait a minute. They have 100 Illegals on the roles and 50 cases of actual voter fraud, so why are they purging 100,000 voter names from the roles. And the Save database only includes aliens that have been made citizens, not citizens who were actually born in this country, and its those people who are being purged, natural born citizens.

    RE Poverty: Its the idea its the same people who remain in poverty all the time, and its not true. ever study shows that new people/families enter poverty every year an people and families lift themselves out. But what doesn't get discussed is that this is done generationally, through savings and inheritance, and education which is why the 40% reduction in wealth is so damaging. Republicans don't address these issues cause they have no policies that address it. Again CNN missing the point

    The real question is about whether this type of discipline a child is criminal. There is a big difference between whether something is criminal and something is inappropriate. I am not sure what this segment is actually trying to prove. You have lawyer talking about criminal activity and a psychologist talking about inappropriateness. CNN is so odd sometimes.
