Mar 19th 2011 8:25PM What a bunch of bunk. Telling your ideas to your superiors will lead to them taking credit for them. As you burn inside watching them get promoted based on your ideas they will actively pursue your dismissal in order to avoid any confrontations.. The only time you should trust your ideas to your superiors is when they are either the owner of the company or at the top of the promotional ladder. Anyone else will just as soon stab you in the back to advance their own career. Such is life in the corporate jungle.
Jan 12th 2011 12:19PM Exactly, as a fellow Cleveland fan I whole heartedly agree. True Cavs fans never have been focusing on LeBron, its all media hype. Cleveland needs to rebuild after they built their team around an engine thats no longer there to power the train. He left the team in the worst possible manner and then after the city and the team placed their hearts in his ambitions he went on national television and made comments suggesting that the Cavs have no potential to ever win a title. He is the one who built up the hype in the city regarding a championship and then he went out and burst the bubble. Of course Clevelanders were mad but we moved on, most sports fans I know in Cleveland could care less about LeBron James anymore. When The Heat comes to town of course the fans boo him, its not like they have any chance of enjoying a decent game of basketball so why not make the most of it and harass LeBron.
Jan 12th 2011 12:07PM And when James and his whole entourage of players left Cleveland for Miami just how was Cleveland to replace them since the draft was over and all the free agents were taken? Cleveland was a contender before James, although Micheal Jordan was always able to take the wind out our sails, and will be again. The current team was built around LeBron and has to be reconstructed.
The owner may have been talking a little too early but the man has the heart and the cash to make the Cavs great.
Jan 12th 2011 11:40AM Wow, where was this "concerned" daughter when the man was out on the streets. Now she notices that he is drinking a bottle of Grey Goose every day? I think not, she thinks its time to grab the Daddy Gravy Train before it runs out of steam. The guy is fragile and has problems but since he has no handlers around him I find it hard to believe that he could clean himself up that well to do interviews if he was abusing alcohol the way his daughter claims. Also, the police in that city have no problems bringing celebrities to their knees so I doubt they would have left his intoxication off of their reports. They may however have tried to save her a trip to the slammer by skipping the scratching on her fathers face.
Oct 19th 2010 11:27AM And if in the course of the emergency landing you happen to break your leg or are unconcious are you to be left alone to die? What kind of logic is this. The man needs a wheelchair to walk and may need assistance in the extreemely unlikely event of an emergency. Therefore he is required to buy two tickets and possibly pay for all expenses of a companion to fly with him. How ludicrus. If they require a companion to fly with him they should have to foot the bill, why should the airline profit from his disability.
Sep 16th 2010 12:22PM Viagra is covered because its original use was for heart problems. You can't deny it for coverage if it has a specific medical use other than male erectile disfunction. My wife was able to get her birth control pills covered when the doctor prescribed them for hormonal use after my daughters birth. Its all in how doctors code the prescription to the insurance company. It is not some sort of male conspiracy. Wouldn't men prefer that their partner was on birth control pills in order to prevent an unwanted pregnancy to save them from 18+ years of child support?
Sep 14th 2010 12:32PM Snappy, where in this article are the race and gender of the doctors mentioned? Are you clairvoiant? Whenever I have had either myself or a loved one treated in a hospital the ratio of "white men" on staff 2626+seems to be lower than most other races. Female doctors also make up a large portion of hospital staff. Where are you getting your facts from to make such a bigoted statement. I wish the family well. I hope his case can be used as an example to help others with his condition. They obviously were unable to save rich and white Senator Kennedy from this terrible disease.
Sep 8th 2010 1:01PM The restaurant business has always been an odd situation with even the federal government exempting servers from minimum wage laws. That being said, this latest trend of lawsuits will make no one rich except for the lawyers. The laws will not change, the few "ex" employees whose names are listed on the lawsuits (current employees will never put their names to these suits in the fear of retaliation in a bad economy) will get pennies in compensation and the lawyers will rack up huge fees to be deducted from the eventual out of court settlements. Just another case of rich lawyers fleecing business owners under the guise of helping the little guys. If the tipping scenario is really so bad for servers, why do we never see former waiters and waitresses who rise up the ladder and become restauranteurs change the pay situation in their establishments as an example? Obviously its not as bad as they would make it appear to be. Most servers I have talked to even in chain type establishments eg. Fridays, Applebees, claim that they make a fairly decent wage including tips.

Stop believing the hate hype regarding the unemployed. It took me over a year to get back to work and take care of my family. I drained my retirement in the process since the great unemployment check you hear about wouldn't be enough to cover my utilities let alone anything else. I'm happy to be working again and proud of myself once more. Next time you are at a social event try introducing yourself to someone without being asked about your job. When you do, tell them you are unemployed and watch your freinds scatter. Unemployment is no nirvanna and I am tired of those with jobs acting like you are anything other than plain lucky to have a job. All your great skills are worthless unless someone is willing to pay you to use them.
