re: Welfare isn't designed to help you. It's designed to keep you poor & dependent on Big Bro - volod
[quote]From the peak of $12 / hour + welfare (full everything), you would have to make $38 / Hour to get to the same economic point you were before. [/quote] This, probably more than any other factor besides complacency, is what keeps perpetual poverty. ...

re: Why are Private School Teachers typically paid less than public school teachers? - volod
[quote] All of the above is why your average private school teacher is female with a husband who makes the real bank. [/quote] I understand. This post wasn't a troll. I'm just trying to understand the dynamics of teacher salary from people who actually have sent kids to private school. Because o...

re: People will lie in job interviews. - volod
[quote]I guess if you are going from one small mom and pop to another. [/quote] I agree. It's one thing to verify qualifications. It's another to find someone "in the good old boy network" as the metaphor implies. Small town employers can be hit or miss because they rely too much on spe...

[quote] How do you protect yourself against hiring a bad employee based on one good interview? Investigate. Call people. You'll be glad you did.[/quote] I personally dont think anyone should put too much emphasis on previous Employers except to check if they worked there. This is more obvio...

re: Can someone please explain the recent Obamacare ruling? - volod
[quote]Herein lies the problem. Government needs to remove itself from private healthcare. Repeal and strike down. Government replacement is not a constitutional option.  [/quote] Let's look at this another way. The current system under the ACA benefits the establishment, so they will fight to k...

[quote]Beto is the flavor of the month young dumb liberals my age think is the next Obama.[/quote] Idlewatcher is 100% spot on. Politics today, like it or not, is 45% presentation, 45% pandering to your base and/or creating catchy lines and 10% actual policymaking. This tends to happen when ...

[quote]Admittedly, patriotism is subjective, but I think you'll agree that yours is an egregiously low threshold by which to judge.
