I mesn they have been relentless in trying to make a scandal and treachery that would conceivably deep-six their worst nightmare. Given the totality of information from variious sources, it looks like they aren't going to get what they want.”

“Hispanic people as a group are mixed native and Spanish, and in some countries, ex-slaves. As such, they are not 'white' and I suspect that you know your premise is false.”

“One problem has been the time frame in which a suit can be filed. The lilly ledbetter act gives more time to file, as i understand it.”

texdoc96 on Mar 19, 2014 at 10:43:05

“Didn't that pass and has been the law for 5 years. Once again why another law? Did lawsuits explode in the last five years as you would expect if the time frame in which the suit could be filed was keeping people from seeking relief? The time frame problem was only in place from 2007 to 2009 and was remedied by the Lilly Ledbetter act. Problem solved.”

“Pathetic that whatever title Marco rubio thinks it's a mistake to apologize. Never mind that what the Prez said doesn't need an apology, it's true that only a fraction of art history degrees (or similar disciplines) are put to use in their field. Engineers and engineering related technolgy, skilled tradesmen (a non-union plumber makes good money). A point at which I disagree with the prez, is that such degrees might be considered a financial waste of time. Degree programs are designed to create a 'well rounded person', such that their skills can be applied in unrelated fields, my daughter's bachelors degree in communications, helped her snag a decent job in retail. Not professional art historian prestige or pay, but she is in the management track, so we'll see.”

“Would require a constitutional convention, ain't gonna happen. I doubt that there is an issue of constitutional obsolescence that could get enough support for that to happen. The scotus can alter its interpretation, but my guess, without a lot of skin in the game (I own a couple shotguns, but do not drool at the sight of high end high tech firearms)is that the second amendment is going to be on the books for the foreseeable future.”

“and what should be easily dealt with becomes a federal case. I never got paid to change my clothes as a union paper maker, but we were allowed to wear street clothes, if we preferred. the company did go to great lengths to get voluntary compliance wrt personal protective equipment, and they probably spent what it would cost to change on the clock. there were jobs that required contact with acids, and clothing was supplied for that, but if accidental contact happened, all of the wash up and clothing change was on the clock. as was the trip to the doctor if it was serious enough. seems like a petty thing by the employers, given that it is protective clothing. another consideration; are there workers in the plant who don't have to wear this clothing who might be called on to assume such a job, which might require them to clock out to put on the ppe? it makes a difference, whether you are expected to wear it all day or only during certain tasks.”

“This data is widely available on the internet. Your statement that they "kill/permanently incapacitate so many people" is unsupported. You are free to go to Taser Corp's website, or look up any of the many studies/articles written by others.
