Nov 29th 2011 6:54PM Because for a little while yet wages are set by demand and not by a bureaucrat. Where there are many lookin to do the job, then little will be paid. Want some good money? Collect garbage in a city. Those guys are making 70+K a year as who wants to do that? You have to pay to get them (maybe not these days but when the economy was good...)
Jun 9th 2011 8:42AM So Depp uses women as fashion accessories. He's this generations George Hamilton. Next story please.
May 23rd 2011 3:35PM Lawson is a liberal Democrat genius. You know, the people who don't care what your do as long as it's mandatory.
May 9th 2011 4:55PM Hey, get in the game here. She's a celebrity. When she breaks wind, someone will try to bottle it and sell it. I've never personally understood the American celebrity cult, but it exists. Otherwise no one whould know what the heck a Kardashian was.
Mar 22nd 2011 9:17AM I am much more aggravated by the guy collecting the $600 a week unemployment check that Obama took out of my pay than Spielberg and his yacht. He never got a dime from me I didn't want to pay him. Obama holds a gun to my head every pay day and tell me to ocugh it up or else.

Mar 15th 2011 7:33PM When I was stationed in Germany some years ago, the Germans were fairly loose about alcohol and age limits. Funny thing is that all the local incidents with teens and drinking issues out in the economy seemed to be American teens (stationed with their parents). I'm not saying I never saw a drunk teenager, but it wasn't a big deal and so the teens didn't think much about it. As anyone can tell you, the best way to get a person to do something is tell him not to. I don't know if that system would work over here, but it works in Europe. Of course, their teens seemed mentally to be teens. Ours seem to be 10-12 in their attitudes.
Mar 4th 2011 5:46PM I'd rather you use the words you want so I can know what you're thinking. If we get down to an Orwellian newspeak vocabulary, there will be a lot of bottled up feelings that will manifest themselves in ways a lot more destructive than the occasional slur. Besides, insults of all types are common currency in schools and are part of the process of making adults that can not only "take it" but also understand what's going on around them. A sterile police state occupied by sheep is not an admirable goal.
Feb 28th 2011 11:52AM He's a "special" man from a "special" town alright. I've actually never seen his show, and don't feel deprived, but it's hard not to notice the national nutcase when he's in all the papers and websites. He's a real credit to his family and profession.
Feb 22nd 2011 5:03PM I see a common thread to some of the postings. Trust me, for most of these kids, self esteem is not an issue. They've had 18 years of people telling them how wonderful and special they are. Then they show up at work and we get to spend the first two years beating that notion out of them until they get used to the fact they have to work to get paid and are not, in fact, in charge the day they show up. Good job mom. Make them earn their way, don't help them fail with false hopes and smiles.
