When are people going to figure out that what a person earns is based on the value derived of theirRead More services. Hence a CEO which drives up profitability, guided by firm metrics brings much more value than a minimum wage worker who is only performing a service or unskilled function. This is no different than how entertainers and athletes are paid based on the value they bring, i.e. revenue they create within their organization.

Doesn't a life in prison sentence inherently mean that she is going to die in prison? He didn't sayRead More he hopes she gets killed. This classy broad was laughing as the family of the deceased described the impact the murder had. He might have lost his cool, but I have no problem with what the judge said, and if she has no empathy at all then I too hope she dies in prison... preferably after serving out a long and lonely sentence.

But, JB is defending a KGB-style operation, here. This is what the Bush and Obama (and quite possibly, Clinton) administrations got into motion. And, of course Obama is taking it to the max. Our entire government needs to be completely cleaned out, reduced in size and replenished with real people - not the Muppets!

Ron, maybe I was too quick to judge Jesse Jackson for his past several years of comments dividingRead More people. Or maybe he got an unfavorable headline from journalists who parsed his remarks.

Dale: you are always too quick to judge. And point to your employer sponsored (how altruistic, didRead More it show well on your evaluation?) self aggrandization, while casting derision on people or things you know nothing about. You only seek to divide and validate your extremist ideologies, while behaving rudely toward people who may believe differently about something or other.
John David April 18, 2014 at 12:24 am
Daffy, Dale M, after these last couple of years of reading his bunk, has grown beyond tiresome.Read More You are right about his 5:48 pm comment. Who are any of us to ask another, what have you done to rebuild urban America, then pat ourselves on the back for participating in a company initiative? Dale M is a narcissist, who wraps himself in his religious, but self-righteous clothing. He will take umbrage, deny, deflect, do what Glenn or someone says "look, a squirrel", but he is rather hopeless. I feel some sympathy for him, while I'm not sure I should. I dont know if it's his personality or an outcome of his cancer. His views are ok to voice, but he doesn't have facts to back them up most of the time. And he is so unpleasant in how he addresses others, while denying what he does. He has made everything so personal and about himself, hundreds of times. It's particularly sad to me that he of all outspoken confessing Christians, during this week in particular for Christians, would bother accusing someone else of not helping the less fortunate, or should I say less blessed, then credit himself with good works that really should be credited only to GM. Since it is now past midnight, it is Good Friday. I know you are not Christian, but those of us who are should have other things on our minds today, and should be doing other things, than commenting here. I hope you have a holy Passover, those of us who are Christians have a holy Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter. And for those who just celebrate the secular Easter, hopefully it is with family and friends, good food, chocolate, and Peeps.

Tom you are obviously an internet TROLL! And Genius I never said she would be a GOOD Leader!!! IRead More simply stated she might have put a stop to or slowed what has happened to this country. Given the fact that she certainly was well aware of all the players in Washington DC. But this of course of my own opinion and I am a realist and understand that there are those that believe there is NOTHING WRONG with the state of this nation. Of course I might also believe those individuals are living in Egypt on Denial!!! (Hint: Read it fast it makes a funny kind of sense!) But again that would be MY belief. Shhhh Please don't tell anyone in the Government though that might disagree!!! Lest they send 5 fully armed Swat teams to my little spot in the world all of those Swat members being fully armed with the latest in Anti Terrorist weaponry to storm my little home that doesn't have any kind of a weapon unless you consider my 1.5 year old clownish French Bull dog some kind of evil canine??? LMFAO And after they kick in all my doors and windows all they will find is an old kitchen scale that measures food weight and calories!!!! OMG and you know it's the likes of individuals such as myself, middle-aged women that are most certainly the biggest threat to this Country!!!! But take away all the sarcasm and right here you will find a person who will die to protect my civil rights and those of my fellow American. Because I am one of those American's that when I see the someone's civil rights being violated by the Government, or Federal Law enforcement, or even local law enforcement officers. I will stand up and speak up for that person. And I will not shut up and just go away and mind my own business. Because I do believe and Know that to do NOTHING means I am freely agreeing to give up my own rights. And that is never going to happen!!! So YA I am a very proud 54 year old troublemaking military vet that is also a staunch supporter of the US Constitution and will commit civil disobedience making sure it is not blatantly violated in my presence. And there never is a bad day for a REVOLUTION!!!

Autocorrect. It happens. I obviously meant climate change. Allow me to disagree, gently: when youRead More falsely accuse other people of not reading/understanding/believing in the Bible that is demeaning. When you falsely claim somebody else isn't following the Bible because they have interpreted things differently, that is demeaning. When you ridiculously belittle something you clearly don't understand as pantheism (seriously?) not only is that nanners, it is demeaning. When you use metaphors to describe other people's beliefs such as drugs or animal waste, that is demeaning.when you clearly state someone is incapable of understandng something because they don't share your particular beliefs...you get the picture. None of that is gentle or civil or polite. Mostly it is obnoxious and offensive, even to those who may not belong to those groups you demean. It is very clear that you don't care that you are offensive, that it is frequently your intent to be so, and that you will continue with your tone deaf rudeness. I'm just pointing it out. Again.

Here's the story I posted this morning and was censored by PATCH Pistol Turned to ‘SubmachineRead More Gun’ By Clueless Media April 15, 2014 | Filed under Constitutional Issues,corruption,Culture,Culture Of Corruption,Democrats,Dumb Criminals,Gun control,Liberals,Media | Posted by Warner Todd Huston Once again we get proof of how mindless and clueless the media is, how they don’t fact check, but just mindlessly pass on each other’s bad work ad infinitum. This time it happened with a story about a criminal who used a .22 caliber pistol in a crime but one clueless reporter turned it into a “submachine gun” and hundreds of his mindless colleagues followed suit passing the lie on and on and on. Clueless reporter Darryl Holliday of DNAinfo Chicago, a website that caters to local news, reported on an incident that was perpetrated by a man from West Garfield Park who began wielding a .22 caliber pistol in a grocery store because he didn’t want to pay the 22 cents tax on a bottle of pop he was trying to buy. Holliday “reported” that the crook “pulled an Intratec submachine gun out of a Gucci satchel,” and in the next paragraph again claimed the piece was a “submachine gun” saying, “Officers arrived on the scene shortly after to find Shelton’s Gucci bag open on the counter as well as 15 bullets in the blue steel .22-caliber submachine gun–eight live rounds in one magazine, five in another and one in the chamber, according to court documents.” Of course, it is clear that reporter Holliday doesn’t have any idea what he’s rambling on about. The .22 caliber Intratec pistol is not a “submachine gun. It is a semi-automatic pistol like every other semi-auto pistol. A submachine gun is an automatic rifle that uses pistol cartridges instead of larger ones such as rifle or armor piercing cartridges. A one-hand-held version of this weapon is called a “machine pistol,” but it is also fully automatic. The Intratec pistol used in this crime is not a fully automatic weapon, however. It is semi-auto-meaning it fires only once when the trigger is pulled. It does not expel a stream of bullets like a fully automatic weapon does. Yet, as soon as this story went live on April 13, dozens of other so-called news outlets took up the claim that this dolt used a “submachine gun” in his crime. All one need do is put “Nahshon Shelton submachine gun” in any search engine and dozens of so-called news stories will be revealed saying that the criminal used a “submachine gun.” It all just shows that whenever you see a report on guns in the Old Media establishment, you should not trust it. They don’t even know the proper definitions of firearms terms and from there all their “facts” are suspect.
