    Pt 2

    “Service was poor? This last is very common in restaurants and tells the customer “don’t come back,” such as when a waiter/waitress doesn’t show up for 20+ minutes at a time, the staff forgets about a customer, or a fast food place doesn’t have a person at the counter within a minute of a customer coming in. I got my start in restaurants and I’ve known some very good restaurant owners and some outright flakes. What was striking was that the flakey owners used to complain constantly about the “workers” and not being about to get “good” workers.

    Personally, I thought a good worker was one who showed up on time, did the job well, worked hard and was honest and courteous.

    All too often the flakes would hire someone just like themselves, passing over the good workers. It was almost funny to hear the complaints. And yet it wasn’t funny, because so many businesses do exactly the same sorry practice.”

    I don’t have a lot of sympathy for employers who violate James 5 and steal from their employees.

    You’ve never worked in restaurants?

    Most people my age got their start in them. The wages are less than half of what they were in the 1980s when I worked in them when adjusted for inflation. Even then, labor costs maxed out at about 10% of a restaurant’s costs. The big one then was overhead. Today its taxes.

    Paying for an entire shift of workers in five or ten minutes is yet one more example of stealing from the employee by companies.

    I wrote this for National Wave of Foolishness “Take this example of the wage silliness, which is based upon a real example of someone who complained a few years back to a regional conservative pundit: a restaurant claims to have gone out of business due to the minimum wage increases of 40% in a ten year span.

    Let’s analyze that claim. (I note in passing that I got my start in restaurants.)

    Since labor in a restaurant is normally a maximum of 10% of the total monthly costs (and usually less), the owner was complaining that a total business costs increase of a maximum of 4% caused the business to close.

    Seems to me that there was something else wrong.

    So, what was the real problem? Not enough customers due to exorbitant prices? Or bad location? No one knew about the restaurant? Something else, like bad food? Other prices went up, like energy? Service was poor? ” TBC

    The Blaze deleted my reply.

    In a nutshell, unions since the 1950s have been poster children for breaking the ten commandments. From stealing via work rules and strikes and sabotage, to trying to commit murder by cutting loose an unmanned, unlit barge in the Columbia River two months ago. If a ship had struck it, it could have cost the crew their lives.

    For more than ten years the teachers when I was a kid held up the public for more wages like a mugger. Shut down the schools if they don’t get what they want. Every year it was a dishonest campaign to steal from the public.

    The mafia connections that most unions have certainly don’t help.

    The teachers unions have all but ruined education. They got the bachelors degree in education mostly eliminated in 1993, and it was replaced by a party degree + 1 year of actual work. That is why most teachers are incompetent now and most have no morals now. The epidemic of female teachers raping students is because the teachers slept around in college, did their drugs, etc., and then graduated without having learned any personal discipline or goodness. So, when they see a student who attracts them, they just go for it.

    In the last three years or so women half my age have been chasing me. I just smile, be polite, and let it go at that.

    It started when I wrote a novelization for Song of Solomon that incorporated the entire Bible book line by line.

    Why would they need to keep celebrities “in line.” Most are spoiled kids who push socialism for everyone else.

  • September 1, 2014 at 3:14pm

    I didn’t finish the sentence. The prosecutor should bring charges when it’s clear a matter is a publicity stunt and a false claim was filed with police.

  • [3] September 1, 2014 at 3:14pm

    That is exactly right.

    Fraud by the celebrities. Take photos or a video, leak it, whine like it was done by a hacker or papparazzi, then later it gets revealed that it was a PR stunt.

    If I was the local prosecutor, I’d bring charges for the deliberate “leaks”.

    The “leaked” tapes that are production quality? Sure, sure, yes, must have been “hacked”.

    The “leaked” photos where it took place in a studio? Sure, sure, must have been “hacked”.

    NOT!

    Having lived in areas with both, I’d say that the lesbians tend to be fat because they use food as yet another drug like they do sex.

    In the case of gay men, since men generally do the work in sex, you can imagine what having several hundred partners per month does to muscle tone. One would expect the same with lesbians, but the food addiction would tend to cause expansion despite the extreme number of partners.

    Another factor is infectious disease. We’re only just beginning to understand how infectious disease influences weight and metabolism. In the late 1990s, it was discovered that diabetes had a viral cause. (Despite the usual media lies about other things causing it, such as sugar. The lack of ability to use sugar is a symptom, not the cause.)

    The typical gay or lesbian in the places I’d lived usually had a live-in partner, but the two of them would be sleeping with people practically every day of the week. When a person exposes themselves to that many people, picking up viruses and other pathogens is guaranteed.

    That is why gays without HIV have a 30-fold rate of infectious disease over the general population. Constant exposure to multiple pathogens.

    The sex tourism that brought in almost 50 STDs in the 1990s didn’t help, either.

    The Blaze is not what one could call a professional outfit. They do a lot of hearsay articles that turn out to be completely wrong. Fortunately, most of the stuff they print is factual.

    When I say professional, I mean all the little things that used to make a paper a paper. From simple things like the headline reflecting the article to spelling words correctly. Checking sources before printing.

    One of the greatest areas of failure is how the Blaze ignores tips from its readers. Think a fire with 7 buildings including two church buildings is news? Apparently not.

    Like most media staffs, the staff at The Blaze apparently doesn’t have the basic knowledge to know when an article is not true. A good general knowledge is needed in order to write well, and that is almost completely lacking in media today. A degree in partying doesn’t prepare a person at all for the field.

    If I had the money, I’d start a newspaper that had scientists, engineers, ex-military, etc.. People who had actually done things and would know when they are being lied to or when a news service like the AP is lying.

    Yep. Headlines like that are classic. “Appaling Stupidity” Hehe

  • [2] August 31, 2014 at 3:22pm

    Is that a reference to that awful “bunga bunga” joke that made the rounds some years back?

  • [2] August 31, 2014 at 3:21pm

    By itself, no. The thousands of other things that have happened in the last 20 years, yes.

  • [21] August 31, 2014 at 3:08pm

    Most definitely. Because they see everyone reflected as themselves they don’t understand the nature of sharia law and isis.

    Keep in mind that the mainstream media consistently committed treason during the GW Bush administration by advocating for our enemies. Their actions indicate whom their sympathies were for.

    While some of the old timers in the Democrats are still pro-Israel, the anti-semitism that characterizes most of the party today has resulted in many of them being sympathetic to islam and its murderous way of life.

    cont

    “When Conservatives do something that the Left would not do— which is pretty much all the time— the Left doesn’t understand the motivation for it and the best they can do is to attach one of their own cynical or evil motives for it.
    An example would be when a Conservative Republican, Tea-Party member or other person gives to a charity because they want to help the people that the charity affects— and then a Liberal cynically says that it’s “because they want the media attention” because that is what the Liberal him/herself would do, not understanding the actual motive for the action. While it’s true that most Liberals/Socialists/Leftists/Democrats won’t do “acts of goodness” without a camera or soapbox, or at least without getting something for it in return, that cannot be said for many others.

    When a Conservative screws up, or someone who really isn’t a Conservative does something wrong, the Left crows about it— it gives the illusion that “they are just like us.” (In the political realm they hope such messups will bring them votes.) It makes them feel better in a strange sort of way. Makes them feel vindicated, justified.

    It’s false.

    Think about it: persons with inverted morals or no morals making a moral statement or attacking others for moral failings? That qualifies as acting, I should think. The classic definition of a hupocrita (υποκριτα) was an actor. The person who used a mask in Greek theater. Someone pretending to be someone or something else. When those

  • [6] August 31, 2014 at 3:03pm

    That is a very good point.

    I wrote this in National Wave of Foolishness “Not understanding Good, not understanding why others act like they do, they can only project their own attitude on others and thus they see themselves reflected in Conservatives— and are frequently stymied. Why do Conservatives do what they do? Conservatives are a mystery, just as logical thinking, critical thinking and science that doesn’t break its own rules when convenient are a mysteries to the activist. The concept of doing Good merely because it’s the right thing to do or doing things for the reward from God and indeed, many other types of thought, are mysteries to those of the Left.

    They can observe what Conservatives do, but they do not understand why they do what they do.

    It’s fascinating, but there is a rational explanation for it: those who love evil cannot readily understand those who love Good.

    Those who love Evil don’t understand the respect for the law, respect for others, or doing the right thing for the right reasons.

    Thus, the Left forever sees themselves reflected in Conservatives, projecting their own bad qualities on Conservatives, such as theft, corruption, lying, etc., because that is the best they can do. It’s like a trying to understand what it is like to be an eagle if you are an octopus. There’s no common frame of reference.” TBC

    Ironically, Hannity was completely correct. Read Ezekiel 35.

  • August 31, 2014 at 2:57pm

    Hehe. Don’t you know that man can “control the weather”? Or so the ecos claim.

    So, I’d ask the ecos this, then…

    OK, ecos, shut down the 500 active land magma fields. And the 650,000+ active seamounts, and the 47,000 mile long MOR, and the unknown millions of smaller sea vents.

    That will get rid of an enormous chunk of the CO2 in the air that you claim to hate.

    Gee ecos, can’t do it? Snort. I thought man could control the weather…

    (Sorry, I just get tired of idiots calling themselves “scientists” making absurd claims.)

    No reason that volcanism couldn’t be affecting it. When we had a series of seamount volcanoes (there’s more than 15,000 seamounts off the immediate coast of Oregon) increase their activity about 13 years ago, the HS gas not only cleared the beach at Brookings once, but caused a 200×300 zone where everything died off.

    Ecos blame “global warming” and “agricultural runoff”…

    The instructor apparently has forgotten that Greenland was actually green when the Norse farmed it for 300 years.

    Then the weather cooled (little ice age began) and the warlike Innuit arrived, and between the two they left.

    Despite the usual claims by the ecofools, it was a worldwide cooling, not just Europe and North america. Civilizations in asia and elsewhere were dramatically affected by the cooldown.

    It’s one of those stupidities of the modern ecoschmuck that they have the cheek to claim 100,000 years of ice cores in ice that didn’t exist in 1300. They never let science get in the way of pushing their sorry agenda.

    The instructor apparently has not noticed that ice has been building up for at least 15 years in greenland and both poles.

    Inland glaciers in the U.S. have expanded rapidly (Mt. St. Helens is often in the news because of the new glacier that could melt and cause flooding), while the coastal ones have retreated. The Himalayan glaciers haven’t changed that can be detected.

    Not sure why you say it’s unconstitutional. I don’t know of anything in that 8 page document that forbids it.

  • [1] August 31, 2014 at 2:26am

    They’ve contracted that out since Clinton. He cleaned out most of the competent ones and the rest have largely retired. So, you have idiots left in the USFS for the most part.

    The Deschutes National Forest had not one, but two women put in by Clinton as Forest Supervisors who had high school diplomas and knew nothing about forestry. The Klamath National Forest had a university lady who knew nothing about forestry put in charge of it.

    Bush didn’t clean house or change the racist/sexist policies that wrecked Federal Civil Service. And so what Clinton started in 1993 continues.
