    Is this really what they think in FoxWorld(tm)?

    I don't know of anyone who cares a whit about the whole Injun thing, including the frothing Dumpies at my work. I know Hannity et al. love to ladle this out to their eejits, but I have not heard one sentient individual say it's anything but BS.

    Somebody on POTUS bothered to track the political contributions of the parents who got stung. They broke evenly between the parties.

    I found it interesting that yet again the union is getting blamed. CEO's get paid huge money and are just full of excuses. It's no wonder they're moving everything to countries where the environment and workers don't matter.

    That's very capitalist of POTUS, to tell a corporation how they should be running their affairs.

    There's never been any solution for this problem. Education, jobs retraining and social safety nets are the closest we can come.

    Jobs retraining doesn't work. The dole is the only social institution we've ever created for people put out of work.

    Well, that and genocide. That works, too.

    No, what he's really saying is, The company's doing fine...for now. While the economy's been bifurcated, he's simply chopping off the tail of his thoughts.

    He knows that banks make a lot of money off of people who really can't afford what they're purchasing, be it the credit card interest or overdraft charges. He needs people on the fringe of a healthy economy, not those left so far behind that they're relying on payday loans to purchase their products.

    Job training may not have been as successful as possible...but that's on individual motivations, the implementation, and not the concept. And the dole is an important positive, but it just puts a few more dollars in the pockets of those left behind...not help them move forward.

    Why are we giving Donald Trump and the Kardashians a guaranteed minimum income again?

    This class action lawsuit against the National Realtors Association (and others) seems like it could be a pretty big deal.

    If the court rules in favor of the plaintiffs here, Realtor associations evaporate, the MLS likely dies off, and the entire infrastructure of residential real estate in the United States has to be remade.

    No. It is a classic example of something that sounds lovely and has exactly zero actual value in the real world.

    You would be better off just lighting the dollars on fire. At least the recipients would be warm then.

    I hear ya. Worst thing that ever happened to the Rhode Island economy, particularly Providence, is when the feds put the Mafia out of business! Skills such as leg breaking, get away driver, and body disposal just don't translate into biotech or computer programming. **** government.
