Both true. "Scab" was inaccurate in my case.
Ah, the Proamerica defense: "Well, I agree, it's just what the article said...."
Don't worry, I won't shoot the messenger, even if the message was garbage.
I love the way you guys backpedal and dodge responsibility for your posts.
What, exactly, is true and correct? That it's a Walmart issue? That certainly is the
gist of the article, since "other publicly held U.S. corporations" are referenced once
in passing, and the word "Walmart" is used 14 times. Don't you agree?
Actually, you never said anything. You merely copy and pasted part of a
liberal claptrap article that suggested it was a Walmart-specific issue.
I agree this loophole should be closed. On the other hand, I wasn't aware that this law
applies only to Walmart. Again, you guys sure do love the liberal press. The article you
quote contains such indignant and heart-wrenching blurbs as:
"By lowering the performance bar for Walmart’s executives, the company’s board has kept the bosses happy and secured a nice big tax break. Consider the tradeoff here: This $40 million subsidy could have covered the average cost of food stamps for 4,200 people over that six-year period."
"Taxpayers should support these workers by demanding an end to subsidies for Walmart’s inexcusable pay practices — at both the bottom and the top."
How disgraceful. Funny, though, the only comment that makes any reference to other corporations
exploiting the loophole is:
"Congress should end this subsidy for bonuses at the top of Walmart and other publicly held U.S. corporations, which costs $50 billion over 10 years, by simply eliminating the “performance pay” loophole."
So, Walmart's tax impact was $40M out of $5B. In other words, 0.8% of the problem, yet the
article assigns Walmart 100% of the blame. No wonder the bashers continue to regurgitate
this garbage here - after swallowing it, it's too hard to keep it down.
"Scabs are hired by companies to replace striking employees not by unions as you suggest."
Google ufcw 711 hires scabs and let me know what you find. And it's not
an isolated incident.
I was thinking of the people who fight for dues. The ones who hire scabs at minimum
wage when they need to fill out their own picket lines. The ones who fight unionization
in their own front offices. The ones who demand all workers pay dues even if they
choose not to be represented by the union. Yeah, sure, they're all about worker's rights.
"It details how Walmart will eliminate any worker with so much as a pimple."
Can you please quote where in the Chambers memo this is proposed?
No, both chambers of the Connecticut legislature are majority Democratic, aka
politicians who are owned by organized labor.
"Not only that, it eliminates having to sift through mountains of garbage on this board to read a decent post."
Don't flatter yourself, Larry., you're minor league. Your garbage amounts to just a few molehills
compared to our resident King of Garbage Mountain, madmilker101. Or perhaps we should
call him the Chief Redundancy Officer in Charge of Redundancies, not to be redundant.
Good for him, it's about time someone showed some stones towards solving
the insolvency issue. Raise the retirement age and the taxable cap on income.
If you need SS retirement benefits the day you retire and can't wait a couple
of years to collect, you can't afford to retire. Sorry, Charlie.
Problem is, Christie has no chance of being elected because he's too bombastic
and, as you so eloquently pointed out twice, overweight. Small minded morons
just dismiss the guy with fat jokes. No worries there, since the obese are not
a protected class and therefore fair game for the deep intellectual critique you
provided. Pity. I'd vote for the guy in a heartbeat.
I was wondering if, being local, you knew someone or something @ the company.
Looks like they do air handling and humidity control equipment; just what makes
them an MJ play? I don't see anything special there....
Sorry, no I didn't; I just asked the question (again). So, can you name one (again)?
Or do I get insulted and a thumbs downs (again)?
Of course the election is hers to lose. She's a brand name, so people will as usual
vote for her without thinking. And she'll get the overwhelming majority of the female vote,
just like Obama got 95-99% of the black vote. The issues don't matter to most voters
as long as the candidate looks like them. Independents who can't vote in closed
primaries basically have no say in the process until November, anyway.
I noticed you simply dismissed my question as bitterness, and the previous poster's
question with insults. So no, you can't name one substantial accomplishment?
Sorry, I'm neither a GOPer nor a FOX viewer; perhaps you could answer the question
instead of hurling insults. What, exactly, are Mrs. Clinton's accomplishments? I mean
other than being elected Senator "I'm Really From NY. Really." Or violating policy by
hosting her own email server. ("I handed over all work-related emails. Really.") Or
being married to an impeached president who perjured himself in front of a grand
jury. Mr. and Mrs. are a slimy pair of same-old, same-old ipecac politicians who
in all probability will re-occupy the White House in 2017. Ugh.
I "pounced" because you pounce, again with no comment on the lying or bigotry.
You make perfect sense, Phyl.
"I would like to see the south start paying its fair share."
1. The South should be capitalized.
2. Your level hypocrisy is frankly astounding.
Have a nice day, and wear the respirator, OK?
