[quote] I'll wait to see if you figure out why.[/quote] Are they not both symbols of our government? Just because one is made of cloth and the other out of concrete does that make a difference toward what they represent? I thought you would be as much for the little flag as the big building se...

re: Old news I know but I was proud of the locals and students at LSU - Homesick Tiger
Glad you brought this up. Again, for the umpteenth time, yesterday I saw the fat chick jumping on the flag again. We all know that it is just a symbol of our country. So is the White House. I don't think the WH is mentioned as being more of an important symbol than the flag anywhere in the Constitut...

[quote]Someone shouldn't have to financially suffer for 3 months [/quote] I really am amazed at someone who is financially strapped after being off work for three months without pay. In that case, why are you having a baby? If your lifestyle could only afford those already under your roof to whe...

[quote] I just think this is a social good and treats people like actual human beings[/quote] As long as it is not government mandated I agree. I'll go a step further and add long term illness to the equation if we're talking about social good. That's even more fair to all employees. Long term il...

re: John Oliver's little segment on paid family leave that aired recently - Homesick Tiger
[quote] but to argue for PAID leave is way too far in my opinion.[/quote] I agree. Couple of points, having kids is considered "elective" imo. No way a business should have to compensate you for something not work related at all. Now if the business wants people to lose 40 lbs. for health reasons...
