    Good idea to print that out and carry it with them if they prefer to live in poverty their entire life and have no way to bargain for higher pay as a strong group and be at the mercy of a boss that is out to get them even if they do their job perfectly.

  • In the remake a black girl is playing Annie and the racist are beside themselves. As one tried to put it without sounding too racist, she just has too much color to play the part. I guess everyone should know that god, santa claus and Annie are white.

    LSD-laced steak sickened Florida family - medical examiner



    2 hours ago




    By Kenneth Knight

    TAMPA, Fl., March 8 (Reuters) - A pregnant woman and her family were hospitalized this week after eating steak bought from a Wal-Mart that local authorities believed was laced with the hallucinogenic drug LSD, according to the medical examiner's initial test results.

    A blue balloon announcing "Baby Boy" fluttered on Saturday outside the home where the family has since returned after Jessica Rosado, who was nine months pregnant when she arrived at the hospital near her home in Tampa, gave birth after having labor induced.

    Rosado, her partner Ronnie Morales and her two young daughters fell ill on Monday evening after eating some bottom round steak bought from a local Wal-Mart, according to the Tampa Police Department.

    It was the first meal they had cooked in their new home having moved in two days earlier, police said.

    Morales was the first to feel sick, and Rosado drove him and her daughters to St Joseph's Hospital after calling 911. He arrived hallucinating and feeling dizzy and short of breath.

    Rosado then began displaying the same symptoms, and was taken to a hospital across the street where labor was induced and her baby delivered. The two daughters, ages 6 and 7, were sickened a little later that evening.

    Police took samples of the food the family had been eating from the home. The Hillsborough County medical examiner's office told police on Friday that the steak was contaminated, and that tests showed the presence of lysergic acid diethylamide, or LSD, police said.

    Police also took the family's oven away for testing. Results from toxicology tests on blood samples taken from the family may take another three weeks, police said.

    "There was enough of some type of substance to make all four members of that family gravely ill," Jane Castor, Tampa's police chief, told a press conference on Friday. "The family has no idea where this may have come from."

    She said that police had taken all the other bottom round steaks from the Wal-Mart for testing but that this was believed to be an isolated case, and that it was not clear whether a crime had been committed.

    LSD is a fragile chemical, and can quickly degrade even at room temperature or when exposed to light. If the test results are correct, it remained unclear how a steak might be dosed with LSD in a way that it could retain its potency even when cooked.

    Police said they were still investigating how or why a steak might end up contaminated in this way.

    Wal-Mart said it was cooperating with the investigation by police and both federal and state agricultural officials. A spokeswoman pointed out that Wal-Mart receives its meat already prepared and packaged from suppliers, and it was unclear at what point contamination might have taken place.

    Morales and the daughters were released from the hospital on Wednesday, and Rosado and her newborn son, whom police described as healthy, were released on Thursday.

    "We're just very grateful that the family appears to be OK," Dianna Gee, the Wal-Mart spokeswoman, said.

  • This followed the three previous years where there was also big gains in US household wealth. You should be on your knees thanking President Obama and if your household didn't participate than you need to set aside your hate and start betting on this country. That hate has cost you a bundle already.

    The ACA could improve a lot. It needs to trend toward what Obama and the democrats really wanted to do. Go to a single payer plan and get the insurance companies out of it. Medicare runs much more efficiently and health care is much cheaper under Medicare than what the insurance companies can deliver it for. Of course Medicare runs as a non profit, doesn't have a bunch of executives making obsene money and doesn't pay out billions in dividends. If we really want to lower the cost of health care in this country, we need to go to a single payer plan. There is a reason that other developed countries deliver better health care in many cases at less then half the cost of what US health care costs. Thank President Obama for getting us started. We will eventually end up where me need to be and if that means ridding the country of republicans to get it done then so be it.

    Lets face it. The real GOP health care plan is that if you are not a multi millionaire and get sick, you should just go ahead and die.

    If they don't lie about the ACA, they know people will love it.

    Rand Paul is defending him. This is the same guy that defended the Syrian president. No wonder he's a tea party favorite for president.

    When May I Shoot a Student?

    This op-ed in the NYTimes this morning by Prof. Greg Hampikian, Boise State University in Idaho, has written a must-read masterpiece of weaponized snark. The Idaho legislature has a bill pending that would allow students on campus to carry guns. A taste...

    BOISE, Idaho — TO the chief counsel of the Idaho State Legislature:
    In light of the bill permitting guns on our state’s college and university campuses, which is likely to be approved by the state House of Representatives in the coming days, I have a matter of practical concern that I hope you can help with: When may I shoot a student?

    I have had encounters with disgruntled students over the years, some of whom seemed quite upset, but I always assumed that when they reached into their backpacks they were going for a pencil. Since I carry a pen to lecture, I did not feel outgunned; and because there are no working sharpeners in the lecture hall, the most they could get off is a single point. But now that we’ll all be packing heat, I would like legal instruction in the rules of classroom engagement.

    I assume that if a student shoots first, I am allowed to empty my clip; but given the velocity of firearms, and my aging reflexes, I’d like to be proactive. For example, if I am working out a long equation on the board and several students try to correct me using their laser sights, am I allowed to fire a warning shot?

    The Obamacare website opened in October of 2013. Where did you get the five years? You must be thinking of Bush's prescription drug program that took over two years to get straightened out. I'll excuse it this time but lets try and be a bit more informed before posting. Okay pal?

    Maybe next time you will watch something besides FOX weather forecasts. They're about as reliable as their news.

    No, but they did nail that 12 year old who was day trading and posting incorrect information on message boards while the big boys were busily destroying our economy while the Bush Justice Department and SEC were instructed to look the other way and leave them alone.

    Yes, democrats want at the minimum a single payer system or better yet a government health care system like most other developed country's enjoy with much lower cost and quality that is just as good as ours. That's what we would have now if it weren't for GOP obstruction. But you have to admit that Obamacare is far better than what we had.

  • That's what the corporations and the little pawns they control were saying about the $15 an hour minimum wage but it has been in effect for two months now and nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Cedarbrook Lodge which had been an outspoken opponent of the raise in the minimum wage has just broken ground on a 16 million dollar expansion. Hardly something a dying business or a business that is going to leave would do. When the average worker makes more money they spend more money and everyone prospers. Its basic economic principals that some refuse to acknowledge.

    Sounds to me like you're more the one that should be exported to Communist Cuba. You're the ones that want people to make so little that they have to use socialist programs just to survive. Ever hear of the American Dream? Its all about people being paid a decent wage for their work so they can afford to raise a family, provide for them and buy a home. I've never heard of the Communist Dream which is what you are supporting.

    Its true that President Obama has been a great influence and help to the entire world but luckily he's ours and that's where we want the monument.

  • The government can force them to pay higher wages by raising the minimum wage but they can't force them to make workers ullr time. Not directly anyway but they can give them a giant nudge where it would be the only practical thing to do. That could easily be done by our government. All they have to do is force employers to provide qualifying health care for all their employees or pay a set fee for each employee to the government to cover their health care. $10,000 per year per worker without insurance should do the trick. They would be putting workers on full time so fast it would make your head spin.
