Judging from the color of that rice beer I would say the moose was dehydrated. Please give the animal more water before your bottle his waste. Stone Brewery makes a couple of acceptable concoctions but beyond that I would rather have a water or a soda.

It would be interesting to see by labor grade or position where the 14% came from. My guess would be primarily the clueless process-only oriented middle management. Speaking as someone at the grunt level working for a large US corporation formed in a classic inverted pyramid model of ever increasing bureaucracy I can give a witness that as the top and middle become fatter with MBA styled ladder climbers the quality, productivity, and employee satisfaction diminishes. As more and more barriers (middle managers) are pulled in the possibility for innovation or improvement dwindles to zero. You might as well work for the government. Actually we are working for the shadow government. It is sad but it is an increasing reality for many US companies. Individual talent, skills or ability become valueless commodities. Those character features are actually determined by the process geniuses to be in the way of progress. We now create what is falsely proclaimed as quality and innovation by ONLY process control, not people. If the company wants innovation they setup a department of innovation, staff it with “heads” that are merely hollow suit placeholders with labels on them and then declare victory. So while this approach seems a bit strange to some I can see the appeal of it. Provided they aren’t overcome by affirmative action requirements they may do pretty well.

Alex, From what I hear from you I’m think we could make the case for retro-active abortion. Seems like a reasonable choice up to about the 200th trimester in your case. Why make it a “hard” cut-off? Or we could opt’ for a little early end-of-life euthanasia. Whatever is the most convenient. Our body – our choice.

Starbucks is the only coffee place I ever purchase coffee in a cup. Nothing else is even close. Except their “Americono” light dishwater. Coffee made for tea drinkers. Personally I like to roast my own from low acidic beans from Central Africa but Starbucks will do in a pinch. Hey if ya don’t like it don’t buy it but hardcore bean freaks tend to tolerate the higher prices because sometimes ya get what ya pay for. Beans roasted to the second crack are not “burned” they have flavor. No accounting for taste. Hey force carbonated rice water passes for beer today so there ya go.
As far as the employee I find it comical that Starbucks posts -”the partner no longer works for Starbucks”. I guess she isn’t much of a “partner” then, is she? Gotta love left-speak. I am TRULY surprised how intolerant Starbucks is of their “partners”. Why isn’t she sent to a few months of re-education and training? Maybe her mental breakdown is a byproduct of poor policies and/or poor training? I thought all quality training now was focused away from personal responsibility. In my french managed corporation if there is a problem it is the process not the people. People are never at fault. Hey! How can we EVER hold people responsible? Perhaps she had some intense personal conflict or trauma going on.
Oh hey I guess when the entire investment in training consists of someone pointing and nodding their head and then you are paid $15 a hour we expect better. There is hope. Think robots.
Thank God I don't even like their coffee because I wouldn't routinely pay that much for any cup of coffee. This woman is nuts for threatening to call the cops for stealing a straw, like the cops would run over there to arrest this woman. Hell, anything under $50 they don't care about. I do agree with you she should have been retrained. I do like Fox News for keeping two of their ppl after having problems with their addiction & one was even arrested but was given a second chance by Aile.

Where are the freakin’ morons watching TV these days? Really? Is there one person here stupid enough to watch some network television channel? Wholly cow. Idiots! Ahahaha. That is really a riot! Watching TV. Oh ho that is a scream.

Yes we were offended by the p#$$ Jesus “art”. So let me ask you. How many pagan disrespectful artists did you kill after that event? 10? What?! None? Wow your moral superiority really saved the day on that one.
Okay even if we agree that the contest was “stupid”. Even if it was irresponsible to have it. I’ll give you all those things. HOW MANY PEOPLE DID YOU KILL the last time you were offended? The problem isn’t people saying offensive things. The problem is the fundamentals of the ideology being proclaimed by islam. Oh and at least one of these guys wasn’t taught from birth to kill anyone who does not agree with him. He was a relatively recent convert. Here’s the thing – There is no right, natural, constitution or otherwise, to not be offended.
I’ll tell ya what is stupid. Stupid is thinking the American people will lay down and take it. Sooner or later these violent attack are going to spawn something terrible and it will likely manifest itself in what Glenn calls “the bubba” effect. Some guy, some place is going to decide he has had enough of being bullied by these barbarians and will strike out. God help us when it comes to that point.

He will enjoy them immensely. Right up until he draws his last wretched breath and then goes straight to burn in hell for all eternity. Oh that really does make me feel better.

The whole damn crew (with a few exceptions) should be publicly flogged, stripped of every bank account and property and deported. Every damn one of them is a criminal. Get out. American doesn’t need you stealing from us and paying off your buddies any more. Get out. Term limits. Four years and you are never even allowed to SAY the name “Washington” again let alone go there. GET OUT. Four years and NEVER another political position for life including dog catcher. No more “political career” path anymore. CLOSE IT. Net annual pay for congress is equal to the median national income and members are DRAFTED for mandatory 4 years of service and then released. Time for a second standing up of the people. Close down the elitist wealth trough called Washington DC.

Ya know, what I would like to see is a couple of good ol’ fashion cane fights in the senate. Maybe a few senators and congressmen wearing side arms. Stop all this PC playing footsie under the table with the money changers and put some serious passion for ideas back in the game. Ted Cruz is fantastic because he really doesn’t seem to give a rat’s azz what the “ol’ boys” in the power positions think about him. Bravo. I really think folks might watch those C-span shows if there was a reasonable amount of violence sprinkled in.

FOX(es) is fantastic if you can just remember to turn off the sound. I’m with GumRock on this one.

TargetDestroyed01 I pray that you are wrong – but I am betting you are not. Excellent assessment.

The stupidity of American voters knows no bounds. Liberty and freedom from tyranny are the responsibility of the PEOPLE. When the people grow apathetic, stupid and greedy then freedom and liberty die. Welcome to the death of an idea. Men like reid are allowed to be in power because the voters at home are too busy watching judge judy and dancing with the turds to THINK.
Socialism? Ah sure we can try that as long as I keep getting my check.
You're on the money with that but in all fairness Reid was helped by unions when they stuffed the ballot box. The same thing happened with Al Franken, the unions found 'last minute' votes for that vile prog as well.

Straight talk. You pretty much nailed it.

I hit a kid once. Messed him up pretty bad. Serious ghetto inter city area I had to pass thru on business.. Cars parked on both sides with no spaces. 2 travel lanes one each way. Crowded. The kid ran out from between two parked cars and actually hit my car behind the front bumper around the passenger side front wheel-well. I was traveling at maybe 20mph. Or less. It was stop n’ go inner city traffic. So. Unarmed. In the ghetto. White male. What would you do? I grabbed a tire iron out of the trunk and stood by the kid. Fortunately a cop was there before the crowd got too big. His instructions? Get in your car and get the hell out of here. Stop at “…” and I’ll meet you there. So. The damn Cop probably saved my life as the ghetto crowd was growing and getting worked up. I didn’t get treated like a criminal but I sure had nightmares for a long time after seeing that twisted up kid in the road. Never considered suicide. I can’t imagine how punishing the people who love me is a solution to my guilt or pain.

Amen. Prayers for all, the foolish included. Let him who has never made a foolish decision cast the first stone. I wish people would be more serious about recreational drug use. Bars serving intoxicants REALLY don’t make any sense to me. Ya drive to a place to get loaded and then drive home? WTF? Does anyone see a small problem here? If I were king, bars serving any type of intoxicant would be closed unless there was no parking allowed within a 1/2 mile of the establishment.. Bars with parking lots is just the stupidest idea anyone ever had. Ya wanna buy it, put it in a bag, take it home and get stoned in your living room then good luck with that. No problem. Or ya wanna walk over to the local on your street and stagger home no problem there either. Just no cars. No motor vehicles.
Alcohol or any other recreational drug of choice and motorized anything don’t mix. The only thing alcohol mixes safely with is a easy chair and a TV remote.

I didn’t see it as requiring a carry permit for open carry. The way I looked at it was extra protection for carry permittees. For example in my old home state in N.E. if you have a carry permit BUT someone sees your gun and reports it you are pretty much guaranteed you will lose your carry permit. One slip and someone spots your gun and you are done. So with this law if someone happens to report “seeing” your gun you are still in compliance with the law. That would be a welcome law in states like CT.
Florida was like that for yrs but last year incidental viewing is no longer illegal such as getting out of a car but full open carry is still illegal for handguns and there a few instances a longun can be seen but not slung walking down the street

“this idiot could have given that tp to….” Blah blah blah. Give it a break. I don’t care who ya are, that there is funny. ‘Course we could insist that the guy stop playing foolish games and get down on the corner dealing crack with the rest of the guys his age.
 March 17, 2015 at 12:11pm
I think that is still technically “possession”. So_ kill them both and report a murder suicide. Try this, “I really don’t know what happened. I came down stairs and found both of them laying on the floor. That guy with 4 bullet holes in his head must have been the suicide because he was holding the gun”.
