    I have a friend from Germany. She went to a VOCATIONAL high school. She told me that they are tested at the middle school level just prior to entering high school. If they don’t test at a collegiate level, they are funneled into a “trade” high school. She was a professional chocolatier before she married an American soldier and coming here. Oddly enough, She was the corporal I worked for at the county jail.

    Much of the Defense budget could be done away with if the government would stop hiring civillians a twice to three times the pay to do jobs they spend hundreds of thousands of dollars traing soilders, sailors, airmen, and marines to do, all the while those same service members are sitting around doing virtually nothing. My son was trained by the army to be an air traffic controller, however, during his deployment to Iraq, he drove trucks and other menial jobs because the civillian contractors making six figure salaries worked the control towers.

    Since Trump will never win the presidency, I don’t think any of his ideas are really worth worrying about.

    She readily admits they were there to disrupt the program. Therefore, she has confessed to disorderly conduct and should be arrested for it.

    They understand completely. It just doesn’t fit with their agenda to acknowledge that they understand.

    Too bad these people can’t see in the mirror the same thing I see as a former small business owner. Basically, if you are a sorry a** at minimum wage, you will still be a sorry a** at two or three times minimum wage. People who have a GOOD work ethic and a desire to better themselves will ALWAYS rise. People who strive for nothing more than the minimum will never have more than the minimum.

    I have worked for minimum wage, on several occaisions throughout my life, in those times, and in the times like now when I earn more money than I really need, I follow the same work ethic my father and grandfathers followed. This one:

    Colossians 3:23-24
    Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

    More than 80% of McDonald’s restaurants worldwide are owned and operated by independent local business men and women. So, the relation between the pay of the McDonald’s CEO and the store employee is irrelevant. The pay gap between the store worker and the franchise owner is the more relative comparison. And, if they are like any of the other small businesses that I know, the gap is not as large as the unions would have you believe. I know many small business owners (which a mcdonald’s franchisee would be considered) who actually take home LESS than many of their employees. For them, it is about the future, not the present. Working hard builds a future.

    Here’s an interesting question,
    My son and I build custom performance cars, currently a hobby, hopefully soon to be a business. While I have already trademarked my business name, I wonder how well it would have been recieved had I decided to use my family name “White” and called our company “White” Power & Perfomance???

    SO, you force me to rent to convicted felons, then, when said felon uses MY PROPERTY as a base for his renewed illegal activity, you then confiscate my property without just compensation because it was used for the commission of a felony.

    Seems about right for a marxist.

    As a resident and tax paying citizen of North Carolina, I demand that Pay Pal RETURN the $3,700,000 given to them by the state as an incentive for their commitment to building here. You can’t keep it if you aren’t using it as intended.

    Do you understand that, unless the government passes a law that freezes retail prices at the current level (which would likely never get passed) the related increase in retail pricing from the hike in the minimum wage will only result in that MINIMUM wage have the exact same purchasing power as the current MINIMUM wage.

    Why are so many people so desperately wanting to earn nothing more than the absolute minimum??

    Working to increase the MINIMUM so that you can remain mired in mediocrity means that you do not deserve what you so enviously crave, but refuse to work for.

    Passing the fair tax would eliminate US corporations using inversion, and have the added benefit of foreign corporations moving here to avoid the taxes in other countries. Win-Win.

    Those who strive to increase the minimum, so they can remain firmly ensconced in mediocrity do not deserve what they enviously crave but refuse to work for.

    I actually do call out those people that I know who call themselves christians and support people like Obama and Clinton.

    It reminds me of when the Isrealites asked God to give them a king. God told them how horribly a king would treat them, but they still insisted, so He gave them what they asked for.
    Trump will be the same. They will be getting what they ask for. Any man that claims to be a christian, yet also says he sees no need to ever ask for forgiveness is lying not only to us, but to himself.

    True christians don’t drive the elderly out of their homes so they can make money, they don’t bully, they don’t spew the hate and vitriol, and they don’t encourage violence angainst those that disagree with them.

    Trump is FAR from a christian, and I don’t understand how anyone who claims to be a christian could desire someone as despicable as trump to represent them.

    I heartily agree. I would so love to be FOR something, than to always have to choose AGAINST something.

    My Dad was stationed at Elmendorf at the same time. (4 years before I was born, my brother Eric was 1 and my Mom was pregnant with my bother Darran) Mom told me when it hit, she was in the Sears store. She and others had just run out the door when the building collapsed. They had a photo album of it, but I don’t know where it ever ended up.

    MLK III has stood up, just like his cousin Alveeda. They should know exactly how he would hae thought.

    Walmart is closing extremely small stores. These are located largely in towns with less than 5000 populations. The employees are being absorbed into surrounding stores. Only ones losing jobs will be those that choose to leave the company. The Neighborhood Markests (grocery only stores) and Supercenters are growing. There are plans to open more of those two types of stores than the total number of world wide stores being closed. The Express store concept did not pan out as corporate expected, they were not making any money, so the company cut it’s losses.

    MOST of the stores that Walmart is closing are the “Walmart Express” stores. These are little more than oversized convenience stores located in extremely small towns. They are usually within 10 miles of a super center. There are a few under performing supercenters and a couple of Sam’s clubs included in the list, but they are small in number. The “express” stores had a very limited inventory and the only full time employees were the managers. All the employees of the stores that are closing will be absorbed into other stores (or offered two months pay if they choose to part company). Walmart is still building supercenters (I have one going up a few miles from my house) and neighborhood markets (grocery only stores). They told us all this yesterday in the morning meeting. Unfortunately for me, it means that all promotions and transfers are on hold until the closings are completed. The $1.00 an hour pay raise scheduled for February that will take the minimum start pay to $10 an hour is still on schedule at the point that I am typing this. It could change, but I hope not.
