I quit going to Hardees when their burgers prices went up $1. And now every fast food joint has prices too high for the product served, because food prices have skyrocketed. Now I cook on the weekend for the whole week, and no more fast food. For fast food prices I can go to a sit down restaurant, but that is reserved for Sunday after church.
$15/hour for an entry level job is a joke. Fast food is an entry level job! It’s there to teach you what you did not learn in school about holding down a job. It is not for raising a family or even living on your own. It is about learning about having a job, period.
Single cheeseburger at Wendy’s now $4.19. And no fries or drink. Your're lucky to get a recycled napkin. I can only afford to eat there once a week. And the worn out Holstein that they use is not that great.

This kind of crap is why there are state Religious Freedom Restoration Acts. The federal law protects in federal cases but not in state cases. So if your state does not have a RFRA, like Indiana did not, you have your right of conscience protected. There is an option of making a federal case out of it by suing for denial of constitutional rights or civil rights.

This is exactly what needs to be done to any media outlet that publishes or plays lies without saying it is fiction.

Matt has it right. If both of you are not doing 70% of the work on the marriage you may be in trouble. That’s why police officers, soldiers, and any other 24/7-your-time-on-demand profession can kill a marriage. I have been married 48 years to the same lovely and charming wife. We did get married a second time in the wedding church in Bethlehem after 45 years.

The media is looking for hype, and uses lies as the basis for the questions. Rand Paul is treating them for what they are, rude, disingenuous, and dishonest.

Paul is treating the media in a very appropriate manner. They should all treat the media the very same way, cut them off.

I worked for the Navy for 30 years. I got 15 patents in electronics and controls in invented for weapons systems. I did computer modeling of weapon systems performance studies. My job was eliminated in the 1996 BRAC. I went to private industry at double my government salary. I work in private industry as a consultant for another 15 years. I earned that damned pension and it is not that much. I make more than the pension pays from my investments in spite of the FED and Obama have done to kill investment income. That comes from more education, strict personal discipline, and time served. Now I work in my shop making custom firearms and I’m having a ball.
I used to make suppressors in my shop. I used a stack of washers with different IDs in a stainless pipe. They worked really well as far as I was concerned. The 45 cal pistol device sounded like an escape valve shutoff on a 250psi line, and not like a gun shot. The 30cal rifle device was longer and heavier, and quieter. I decided they were much too cumbersome to shoot with, and scrapped them. I got into that project making suppressors for air compressors. I sold that design and all rights.

Key fobs not working in the street and cell phones not working inside a theater are not new. Devices that transmit RF can be jammed by another transmitter. Then there is the handy EMP gun that can take out the bass in those cars you can hear a mile away, but have to be within 3 meters of to kill the noise. A spectrum analyzer and a directional antenna used to take two bearings and you can draw an X on the transmitter. Oh, and another thing, key fobs can be duplicated and used to get right into your car, or through your garage door, or any other remote control device. Any tech school electronics grad can build this stuff on the kitchen table.

Obama steps on himself regularly in this manner. Obama would be better off keeping his mouth shut. We would be much better off if Obama just played golf all day every day. Obama is not a leader. He has no forward vision.

This is the crap that happens when we get a racist SOB for President! Second of all, the signal corps is the 24/7 on call most understaffed overworked unit there is, outside of dodging bullets in Indian country. These guys and gals are expensive to train, and experience counts for a lot so retention is paramount. Force feeding them fetid piles of male bovine excrement about things imagined by stupid leadership in place by civilian election is not going to help.

The FED should have never been. Woodrow’s pet project. Another progressive liberal idea turning up terribly onerous undesirable consequences.

When I was a direct hire engineering manager way back, I was told to interview all of the affirmative action graduates that applied for a job. I never found one I would hire. One year HR sent two back for a second interview, and I was ordered to choose one, a male and a female. Neither really had an engineering. They both took a lot of “PUD” electives not related to engineering or skills that would help being an engineer. Neither could write a computer program. Both had rotten math grades. Both had less than a B average in their core courses. Neither had served an internship. So I hired the male on a hunch the female would be a major EEO problem. A female engineering manager hired the female candidate. In the first year, I assigned work in strict accordance with the engineering job description. His work was error ridden, late, and he could not fix his mistakes. I fired him. The female I passed up did turnout to be an EEO problem. The female manager was hopelessly lost managing her. Affirmative Action is a major insult. Affirmative Action is telling these people they are not up to the task, that they are not as good as the rest. Affirmative Action is telling these people there is something inherently deficient about them. I filled my open position with another black woman who obviously had talent, and she proved I was quite correct.

Exploding Head Syndrome. Airplane moving faster than a speeding bullet. Or maybe it that the geology is unstable. As I recall Berkley kind of sits up on a hill side. Out there a hillside can slide. But the boom would be from a bit deeper.

I think West just lost all of his guns, and should lose his permit to carry. It only takes one, or should.

The VA is a paperwork agency. If you need to use the VA live near the smallest office and hospital you can. The VA needs a massive attitude adjustment making sloth or the accusation thereof a shameful thing. First and foremost the top levels of management must be shaped up, or shipped out. The mediocre need to be removed. And it can be done and it does not take long after the first dozen or so are gone.

The guy is lucky she did not filet him with a kitchen knife. Years ago our house was invaded while the 15 year old was watching the 11 year old and 9 year old. The 11 year old shot him with an arrow through the neck. The 15 year old stabbed him through his right shoulder with a chef’s knife and the 9 year old fractured his skull with a Louisville Slugger. The bat made him quit moving so the kids quit attacking. The kids called 911. We got there before the cops showed up. The perpetrator was wanted for many crimes. He ended up with a serious brain injury from the bat exacerbated by blood loss. He is in assisted living permanently.

Correct. Progressive liberal ideology uses the state as its godhead. They believe the state should do everything. unfortunately all of their ever so wonderful good intentions beget terribly onerous unintended consequences for those the state takes to help. The progressive liberals can not recognize they have caused these consequences and ruined lives, or that the rigorous unrelenting subjugation progressive liberal programs require violate all of the unalienable rights of the people.

Some place in here they over looked fathers. I wonder if they only studied fatherless families.
