“Please explain Walmart. Business will do whatever works to make money, period. Employees at the forefront works for Costco, low prices work for Walmart; bottom line is profit for both of them. Reality is that the customer calls the shots for both of them.”

“This is not a birth certificate, there was no bar codes in 1946. Bill Maher is getting free ads for his show.”

“You really are a bird brain. If you go to your county of birth health department an request a certified copy of your birth certificate, one will be printed as you see Trumps is. Very seldom will you receive a copy of the original copy.

“When are people going to realize that business means profits and not employment? If a business can function with part timers, they will. This whole article misses the point, it's like saying we shouldn't cure cancer because it provide jobs.”

RJB Boston on Jan 10, 2013 at 10:02:54

“short sighted and short term businesses take the profit motive to the extreme and they dont last very long. quality product, quality service, satisfied employees - the things that give businesses longevity - these are bedrocks of sustainable business models and costs are never the primary motivation. think COSTCO - a business focused on keeping costs low - yet they have the best plans for their employees. why, because they understand business better than some hack who wants to squeeze every penny every opportunity he gets.”

MuswellHillUK on Jan 10, 2013 at 10:00:05

“No, you are wrong. Businesses would not stay in business if they were not turning a decent profit. It is how they elect to spend that profit (example: give their execs major bonuses and salaries and benefits vs. give the rank and file employees decent pay and some medical insurance coverage) that is at issue.”

“This compromise reminds me of the King Solomen fable about offspring custody. In this case, it was decided to not care about the country and just divided further.”

“Compromise means both sides lose. No principals left whatsoever. Economy held hostage again. These people don't even have the decency to defend their vote; they are just a bunch of whiners (both sides).”

“I'm with you on the surveillance part. School deaths are a small portion of overall violence in our society. Education in humanities is most important for the long run. Our divided public discourse is more detrimental than violence gratification through fantasy media. Guarding property is different than guarding people because no-one goes bizerk and shoots it up; human contact is constant and necessary.”

“You've read nothing by him. And he's written 44 books.

In your world, the 1% are suspects who deserve prison time. That's the level of anger, of jealousy and resentment you have for the 1%--who PAY 37% of all income taxes.

You have no idea how the economy works and how wealth is created and destroyed. You think Americans work for the government. They do not. Government is supposed to serve the people.”

“You sure are ignorant.

Read Thomas Sowell, "Economic Facts and Fallacies." Or read his book called "Vision of the Annointed."

He's written about 44 books and he cites with great detailed footnotes his sources and they include Dept of Labor Stats, Bureau of Census stats, etc.

If you have not heard of him it's because he is black but almost never agrees with the world view of Jesse Jackson. Sadly, his ideas are resented by people like Matt Lauer and his ilk.”

“No such thing as a fiscal cliff because anything passed next year can be retroactive. The middle class never received a tax break because when fed taxes came down, state and local taxes went up.”

OHnative on Dec 22, 2012 at 10:47:18

“The state taxes did not go up in Texas.

But they sure have in other states like Illinois and CA and many other states.

Those middle income earners are not doomed to a life in the "middle class." In America, upward mobility is historically a possibility. Those who 50 yrs old who have worked full-time since 25 earn about 250% more than those who are 25 yrs old, according to economist Thomas Sowell.

Somehow, Obama has talked every American into believing that the middle class is all one can achieve. He gives more speeches than any president I can remember. But if he'd just get the heck out of our homes and off our TV screens for 5 minutes and let us fulfill our our dreams without daily ANAL exams, we'd all be better off.”

“Everyone is missing the point. This school tragedy was the straw and not the only problem. It is silly to believe that armed guards everywhere is a solution to life longevity.”

ted2012 on Dec 23, 2012 at 06:10:27

“Until you come up with another solution perhaps it is the way. A little story...years ago ...10 exactly...I installed a model school lockdown procedure with equipment and policies...it lasted about 3 years and once again doors left open and alarms muted and cams that went bad due to various reasons were not fixed and school personnel were simply not trained or in some cases could care less about them...you know our of sight out of mind...schools forget about things like this BUT DO NOT forget about a yearly paid guard who comes in every day. Also...keep this in mind...the system cost approx 270K...do the math. I will admit...And to me it sucks...but even with bans of certain types of weapons (which I favor by the way) the only way to really to stop kids from getting hurt...is 1.) background checks on all includign the persaon's family and freidnsthat live in the household and 2.) the most important...change the way as a society we glorify Arnie's Conan the barabrian mentality. Number 1 is not beyond our grasp...2 well...”

“My first reaction is shock, but this plays into the NRA's hand. Even though these tragedies involve guns, it frightens people into purchasing more guns. The best way to reduce guns is to reduce crime. Good luck with that especially with the number of guns out there. Catch 22.”
