    What is this “Shira law” you speak of?

    BTW, nice cut and paste of nearly the same comments to multiple (6 and counting) stories today.

    Watching the video, I couldn’t get over the smarmy and self-important air that reporter Mak exudes. I guess it shouldn’t surprise me.

    There were also a couple of other items that seemed interesting:
    1. How he shifted the conversation from his inaccurate reporting to the comment Trump’s adviser made about rape in a marriage. He came back to this a couple times in spite of the fact that the adviser has since retracted his comment and apologized. (No mention of this from Mak)
    2. Related to #1, Mak asserted that with whom Trump associates is a relevant matter (again, shifting the focus away from his reporting). Funny, I don’t remember seeing any article/commentary from him regarding Obama’s associations (e.g.,, Sharpton, Ayers, Wright, etc.) or Bill Clinton’s (e.g., Jeffrey Epstein).

    Showing the officials were not complicit in her death doesn’t fit “the narrative”. So … the officials have misguided hope. #factsdontmatter

    ‘“I’ll be honest with you, I’m looking forward to life after being president,” Obama added.’

    We’re looking forward to life after him being president also. Not looking forward to him after president. I’m sure his narcissistic personality won’t let him fade away from the spotlight. Maybe he’ll start a foundation where he and Michelle can rake in millions while trading on influence.

    Noticed this also … obviously the writer is not fully up-to-speed on the rules of baseball.

    You reap what you sow.

    In a related story, an unidentified person resembling the silhouette in the poster was found in a corner of a room in the white house rocking back and forth with a big wet yellow spot on the front of his pants.

    Wow. Talk about trying to have it both ways … paraphrase: I support capitalism but capitalism needs to be reinvented. As other commenters have noted, the problem is not capitalism. It is that what we have in place today is not capitalism. It is amazing how many innovative companies love true capitalism when they are up and coming but run to the government trough when they get big enough to lobby for rules favorable to their company or industry.

    This is not a D or R problem. And Hill and Bill are as neck deep in the cronyism as anyone else.

    Can’t wait to see the government levy the “up to $2.5 million fine”. Maybe that will be the wake up call to those who have yet to see or believe the oppressive, dictatorial and punitive nature of this government. Please, do this right around September/October 2016.

    I anticipate Obama’s take on this is as stupid as his view on capital gains rates where he indicated that he would prefer a higher cap gain tax rate, even if it brought in less revenue, because a higher rate would be “fairer”. I’m sure he wouldn’t care about the loss of services from this group as long as they were bowing to his edict, or were run out of business.

    I do agree with your assertion that the way to “train” a child in restaurant behavior is to take them to one. However, you can do your training at a venue where yelping kids are more expected. Parents should try McDonald’s for their training runs.

    Blest,

    You are right; the parents were NOT doing their job. Unfortunately, a lot of bad behavior today (toddler or otherwise) comes with few consequences/pushback so it continues. It is unacceptable for parents to be ignorant of the disruption a child is having on other patrons in the restaurant.

    It’s amazing how quickly a child’s temper tantrums go away when their alternative is to sit in the car with mom or dad.

    ‘That help included a seven-month trip to Jordan last year in order to “get him away from bad influences in the U.S.,” his family said.’

    Genius idea …

    Yes, they also decided what laws they would follow and what laws they would ignore.

  • [1] July 16, 2015 at 12:18pm

    Like consistency of behavior?

    So after 6 years of softball questions from the press, a “hostile” question is posed and the Obama sycophants go crazy?

    Just curious … did Ms. Bash and her peers go on record with regard to the “disrespectful questions” Bush was asked during his press conferences? Like from Helen Thomas? Not to answer my own question, but …. I bet not.

    Obama will trade terrorists for a deserter because “we don’t leave our men and women [in uniform] behind.” But he doesn’t have the balls to put the fates of four Americans on the table as part of the negotiations with Iran. Then gets offended when he is called out on it?

    He might want to give Rachel Dolezal a call; I hear she’s available.

    But if we play nice with them, they will be nice to us. Riiiiggghhhht.

    Why does it not surprise me this was in California?

  • [5] July 11, 2015 at 4:44pm

    @Lib

    “no one else’s fault or concern…”

    … except when you and your ilk start caterwauling about “Where have all the jobs gone?”

    Employers, especially business owners, have a limited tolerance for not getting paid (and they are the last in line to get paid). Unfortunately, this is behavior our government bureaucrats haven’t picked up on.

    By your logic, raising the minimum wage even higher would magnify this result. Why not raise it to $25? What is the right level in your eyes? (Or is this just like the tax rate question? There is no right rate, but whatever it is it’s too low.)

    There are all kinds of dynamics associated with raising the wage level. One is that compensation increases do not stop simply at the minimum wage level; it propagates up the entire employment spectrum. Once a minimum wage worker is making near or higher than someone in another role, that other employee will also expect an increase in compensation, thus necessitating an even higher rise in prices. Why should a service supervisor at Chipotle take on the additional responsibility only to find him/her making the same as a counter staffer?

    Raising the minimum wage also increases the likelihood that automation will be more cost-effective than labor costs. And it doesn’t fail to show up, or give lip to the manager, or talk on cell phone when you order.

    Minimum wage jobs were never intended to be career positions. Maybe we need to start looking at why good paying jobs in the trades continue to go unfilled and why we have become so hostile to manufacturing in the United States. And why, if the supply of minimum wage workers is so great that we must legislate a wage floor, that anyone from either side of the political spectrum is talking about immigration reform that grandfathers illegal immigrants to some kind of work status.
