Jul 9th 2012 3:31PM This is a democrat-controlled state--always has been. That is why the common people get trampled by democrat special interests. I am sure the controlling democrats will blame Bush for this situation.
Apr 24th 2011 11:23PM What a useless waste of money and resources! A "sexist" country is no longer one that discriminates against women, but one that makes all genders equally miserable. It is the same mentality that claims a country has a high poverty rate if there is an income gap the "researcher" does not like, even if the "poor" person receives government-subsidized shelter, food, education, healthcare, cell phone, cable TV, computer, Internet access, etc. In certain nations (which shall remain nameless), people living in "poverty" have a far higher standard of living than the wealthy in less developed countries, yet the former is classified as a nation that discriminates against the poor. These studies are basically anti-capitalism, pro-socialism propaganda in the guise of pseudo-scientific research--in other words, 100% BS.
Apr 4th 2011 2:36PM Denim is fine for many business/social events, as long as it is not jeans. You can not get much more into totally casual than jeans--and they are totally inapproproate for business and formal events. Jeans at the Oscars--gross; jeans at Church/weddings--disrespectful; jeans at work--sloppy beyond belief. The same goes for athletic shoes, and shirts without collars, especailly those with designs and any kind of text. That is toilet fashion!
Mar 21st 2011 4:13PM Actualy, a lawyer would be the correct avenue to pursue. The victims can sue (possibly as a class action) the "anonymous" author(s) for slander and get a big settlement. Doesn't take away the pain, but the judgment will follow the idiot(s) for the rest of their life. That is at least some satisfaction.
Might even be able to sue Facebook as an accomplice or co-conspirator. Wouldn't that get Mark Zuckerburg's attention!
Oct 28th 2010 2:08PM Certain human physical conditions result in non-standard special requirements. While it is nice to accomodate these requirements when possible, forcing everyone else to adjust to your special needs as a normal matter of course is unacceptable.
To make all airplane seats larger would reduce capacity, thus raising fares for everybody to accommodate a few. However, it seems the companies could put a row of two-across seating in coach class to handle larger passengers without affecting revenue too much. They could charge a premium for these seats, similar to exit row or other preferred locations, that would still be less than a full second-seat fare. Larger passengers would be required to sit in these rows, and if the seats are already taken, for the larger passengers it would be the same as a full flight for normal-size passengers.
I suppose they could have some flights able to accommodate all large-size passenger, but frequency and destinations would be limited, and such flights would be more expensive.
Oct 19th 2010 3:09PM SS was never anything but a tax increase with phony justification. When enacted, the average lifespan was far less than 65, so the government never expected to pay out anything. That is why congress used it as a piggy bank for excessive spending--it is the same as borrowing (stealing) from your parents and counting on them to die before you have to pay it back. Those who have alredy paid in deserve to get back what they are owed. Young and future workers should not be forced to pay into SS while the government figures out new ways to avoid making payments.
Oct 7th 2010 3:42PM Typical in-the-box thinking by incompetent management. They have no idea how to grow the company, so the monkey around with the "little" things,only to find they have messed up even more ("Classic Coke" comes to mind). Replacing the occupants of the executive suite would be more beneficial.
Sep 22nd 2010 9:21PM The same occurs at Minneapolis International Airport. Sometimes the gate is unmanned and simply left open! That was exposed by CBS, so it is not just a Fox thing.
Apr 1st 2010 10:49AM How do you get in/out when someone is parked next to you?
And what about getting in/out in your garage (especially if you own two of these and both arrive/leave at the same time)?
Guys never hold the door for a girl anymore, so it does give them an excuse now.
