“Some of these cases may be genuine but a lot of these cases are pushed by mothers so that they can get the 700 dollar disability check. There is no reason that 1in 5 boys are being diagnosed as being ADHD.”

“You sounds like an experienced pusher.”

“I agree about the disability checks. Mom will have 2 or 3 kids that have some kind of 'disorder' and at 700.00 a pop that's not a bad income.”

“This is usually not how it goes. The diagnosis usually comes by way of the initial school reporting of the child's behavior and their lack of success in school.”

“Or a lot of parents that "just don't have time to deal with it"... I have met many of those....”
“sadly 100K is not unusual in middle class weddings. that's why indians are so miserly and look to save all the time. plus female foeticide occurs so often.”

“What - where do you get your logic from man. They don't remarry because its expensive. Lets just own up and not try to overlook the very real cultural (not financial) taboos that try to prevent this.
Every culture has immaturity at some level - ours is about our women remarrying, again not because of how much it costs.”
“I am a gay guy working in corporate finance. Here if we have someone who is gay but not masc I will have a hard time hiring him because he doesn't fit the company profile. Now I will have to be even more careful hiring someone gay because tomorrow if the guy turns up in a dress I cannot fire him. The golden rule of hiring is never hire someone you can't fire.”
Wyvern Wycliffe on Nov 4, 2013 at 12:12:40
“You're the end decision maker in hiring? And you're publicly stating that you have a discriminatory hiring policy? That's pretty dangerous, even under a pseudonym.”

“See, there's your problem: Corporate Finance. You're not going to get a lot of sympathy.”

“I'm sure you will receive all kinds of grief (mostly from gay people) about your comment, but I totally get it. I too am gay but don't feel the need to dress up in women's clothes or to be flamboyant or stereotypical. Who I love has nothing to do with my day-to-day activities. Acting professional is always best.”

“Your company profile says all employees must be masculine?”

“will a dress make him less effective doing what you hired him to do?? ..isn't failing to do the job what is the base to fire??... do you fire women for wearing "pantsuits"???”

“The law doesn't prevent employers from exercising their judgment about who they hire! If the person doesn't feel like a fit for WHATEVER reason, don't hire that person.”
“Remarriage in India is not unusual. However advertising is generally conservative and focuses on not ruffling feathers. Indian marriages are very expensive. Giving a kg of gold is the norm in some south indian communities. If they spent so much money multiple times most people would have heart attacks. That's why people don't like to think that they can get divorced or widowed when thinking about marriage. Marriage costs in India are humungous. 100 dollars a person and upto 1000 guests is normal in middle class weddings forget upper class.”
0pseud0 on Nov 6, 2013 at 16:43:32
“Another way of looking at this could be -- if remarriage was as popular (not just "not unusual") in India, then perhaps the custom of giving huge dowries to the groom's family would go away?
And $100,000 "middle class" weddings? I think you may have just stretched the definition of middle class by a tad whole lot there.”
“Guys rich or poor don't care much about the clothes or jewellery except the bent ones. When women socialize they are still in mean girls mode leading to more depression. with guys as long as you can buy beer of any variety you are good in my books.”
“While not part of the Deep South, the safest i have ever felt since moving to CA is when I started living in deeply conservative Orange County. I have always felt unsafe in WeHo. Do the cost-benefit analysis. Gay liberals don't own guns, are drugged or drunk at 3 in the morning and trying to hail a taxi and have wads of cash or bling. Nothing is a easier target if you need some money. In contrast here in OC since a lot of my neighbors have guns and we have stricter judges you can be sure that crime is less of a problem and everyone gay or straight is safer and can express himself freely.”
“Is there one for asian men too? i would love to see that.”
buzzly on Nov 1, 2013 at 16:00:22
“Asian men got screwed too facing the overtly dismissive culture; especially when you are in the East coast and midwest area. I have seen this thousands times "Asian men are (automatically) techie... therefore they must (automatically) suck as managers/leaders (white men are naturally good at that of course)”
“So why are employers responsible for the fact that the govt is giving someone free stuff? If govt doesn't like people on welfare they should stop giving them welfare. A business will only hire someone at 15 dollars if he can make at least 20 dollars off him. No fact changes this basic rule of business. If a business can't make money off an employee that employee will be let go.
If it is so easy running a business paying 15 dollars to burger flippers please open a store and hire all the unemployed in your area.”

KoolAidAmerica, I think the idea is that someone who is working
should be paid enough so they can buy their food and pay their rent
without being eligible for food stamps. Don't you agree?”
smokerob79 on Oct 28, 2013 at 01:38:42
“if they paid a real wage people working for them would NOT need food stamps.....they made how many millions of dollars last year???”
“Would he start by paying interns in the media industry even minimum wages? Most of these liberal arts types are subsidized by their parents for 2 3 years while they try out as interns in LA or NY.”
jaxpagan on Oct 27, 2013 at 07:53:57
“Actually, there's been a lot of action lately on the subject of unpaid internships, and how industry has abused them to do things that should be paid labor.”
jacksonbroder on Oct 27, 2013 at 05:29:51
“Interns in media may be subsidized by their parents. Fast food workers are subsidized by YOUR tax money, because the corporations don't pay workers a living wage. So, your point was what exactly again?”
jPublicus on Oct 27, 2013 at 04:43:14
“Ever know a single intern in media? Didn't think so.
Trust me, not a single one of these interns PREFER to be working as interns for nothing....”
“If they don't matter why is it that we have to put quotas on qualified Asians from these countries and forcibly restrict their potential via affirmative action and why do Asians have lower unemployment rates in the US. Yes high scores may not mean much in becoming billionaires but they are a good way to live higher than average lifestyles.”
Sullify64 on Oct 27, 2013 at 19:00:24
“Errrr ... Asian countries have lower unemployment rates than the US because Asian labor markets are cheap. That's why US jobs are shipped there.
And test scores are not a good way to live higher than average lifestyles. Your grandfather would've scored miserably on an SAT, but he had a good lifestyle anyway. He had that because he could earn a good wage on an assembly line or working in a steel mill not because he could bubble in a scantron sheet.
There has never been a study correlating test scores with economic prosperity, but if you're so sure that link exists, by all means go and prove it.
“so greeters deserve 25K. LOL.
you are working at walmart. if you deserved higher wages you would be working somewhere else.”
Riverman on Oct 25, 2013 at 13:24:41
“You say that as if thirty years of government policies designed to undermine working families has nothing to do with low wages. Snickering like a twit definitely suites you, so I suggest you keep leading with that.”
