“Oh, I'm sure the problem can be solved without any financial sacrifice on the part of the American public. Let's see - we can blame unions, then there's unions, then there are pensions, then take away collective bargaining. OK, let's see, let's certainly not suggest that any other part of our society is in any way responsible - the entertainment industry? Well, we know how hard they work to promote high standards for children's entertainment. Children lacking health care, adequate nutrition, stable homes? No, that can't be a factor in any way. Let's see, I know! Unions - I'm sure they're responsible.”

“Hey, Richard, I feel your pain. Theyrejected me too. I mean, I go to the gym at least 4 times a week and not one invitation, no lunch, no dinner, they haven't even asked me over for a drink. Jeez. Here it is Thanksgiving and I'm sittling all alone right in the suburbs of DC, within an easy drive of the WH, cryin' in my beer.”

“Mr. Reilly never explains how it is he and we can know with such certainty how many drug offenders the President should pardon. Maybe the president thinks that drug offenders who had trials in courts of law and were convicted should serve their sentences. Wow.”

“Maybe some workers want to make the extra money they can make by working on Thanksgiving. Is the day off going to be a paid holiday?

So write to your congresspeople and senators and ask them to declare a national paid holiday for all.”

Stephanie McCracken on Nov 26, 2013 at 13:26:33

“Retail seldom (if ever) gives holiday pay.”

“Right mom. It's not like the movies. This is the reality. How much should we devote to children who basically may never read and probably will not ever function independently? I feel for the parents; no one wants to be in their shoes, but we can't fix every child. In some cases, there just no way. It is tragic, but true.”

“I'm old enough to remember that, C. Yes, another instance of what the glory of deregulation has done for us. Too bad a majority of us don't get what a boondoggle it is and vote in politicians who will give us a few meaningful regs back again.”

“all of Reagan's deregulations led to the same thing:  employees and customers screwed for the benefit of a tiny handful of top execs.
unrestrained corporate greed is NOT a good thing--and the last 30 yrs have proven it.”

“I'm old, Harry, if that's your point and proud of it. In my youth, flying was a completely different experience.”

“I'm pretty old too, but I try not to let it slow me down too much.

I love flying, if by flying you mean hunting for thermals in an IS-30 glider. I've just never, ever had a good experience in a commercial air liner.

... well... that's not entirely true. Did you know that 747s have a separate cabin for crew to snooze in on long flights? I got invited in there once with some flight attendants...”
