The title doesn’t do it justice. Read about the fast food worker’s strike. Love it.
Thanks for helping out, Barry. Thanks to you, more Americans who didn’t have coverage will now have coverage. Unfortunately, many who had coverage will no longer have coverage. Thanks again to you.
The administration and other supporters of the law argue that it will expand coverage to millions, and use subsidies to help those in need purchase insurance.
But in the process, employers claim they are being forced to change or downsize policies, and reduce worker hours. The latter change is being made because a provision in the law, eventually, will mandate insurance coverage for employees working 30 or more hours — some are trimming their staff to avoid crossing that threshold.
Inside Higher Ed reported on Friday that Southern Illinois University was the latest to move in that direction, reportedly by limiting the workload of graduate assistants.
Other employers like UPS this week announced that they were planning to end coverage of workers’ spouses in part over concern about ObamaCare-tied costs.
David Bedein, bureau chief of the Center for Near East Policy Research, said his film crew went into the camps and found that the agency is openly advocating taking up arms against Israel.
“What UNRWA has done is to join in over the last 12 years since the new Palestinian Authority curriculum became as virulent as it is,” Bedein said. “The kids are being trained that what they must do is campaign for the Right of Return – another way of saying ‘destroy Israel.’ A UN agency should not [be supporting a] campaign to wipe out another member state of the UN, putting ideas into the minds of children that they should engage in violence to achieve these goals.”
Your tax dollars at work. No one should be surprised by this. The UN is an antisemitic organization. All that you have to do is watch the response when Israel is attacked (a call for calm) and when Israel fights back (condemnation of Israel for defending itself) to know that.
Businesswoman Dianne York told CNN that Filner put his hands on her buttocks during a photo opportunity that followed a meeting three months ago. York said there were witnesses to what happened. She said both her advisers and Filner’s were in the room at the time.
York is the 18th woman to accuse Filner of improper conduct.
Jackson quit her job and sued the mayor in July, saying he subjected women to “crude and disgusting” comments and inappropriate touching.
Other women have accused him of touching their buttocks and putting them in a headlock and trying to kiss them, among other allegations.
After all of this, they are working out a deal to get him to resign? Is there now way that the city council can kick him out?
If these accusations are true, and he has admitted to at least some of them, he needs to be sued for sexual harassment by many more than the one woman and he should be arrested for assault and sexual assault. He can’t just put a woman into a headlock in order to force her to kiss him and get away with it, or can he? Surely the citizens of San Diego won’t stand for that.
“Common practices like boarding an airplane and purchasing Sudafed require photo ID, and we should expect nothing less for the protection of our right to vote,” the Republican governor said in a statement.
Common sense has no place in government Governor. That’s too much of a stretch for most politicians.
“This radical bill warps the gender expectations of children by forcing all California public schools to permit biological boys in girls restrooms, showers, clubs and on girls sports teams and biological girls in boys restrooms, showers, clubs and sports teams,” Thomasson said. “This is insanity.”
Making a small group feel more comfortable by making a larger group more uncomfortable. That’s the liberal way!
Ninety-six percent of new cars already have them
Many Democrats are hungry to make history again, and they see the first woman president as the natural successor to the first black president.
But in other ways, Hillary is not such a natural successor. The Clintons are ends-justify-the-means types with flexible boundaries about right and wrong, while the Obama mystique is the opposite. His White House runs on the idea that if you are virtuous and true and honorable, people will ultimately come to you. (An ethos that sometimes collides with political success.)
This is precisely what I’m worried about with Hillary. The same numb minded people who wanted a black president and were willing to sacrifice the country to get one are ready to support Hillary. Her policies are more aggressive, and sneaky, than Obama’s. He’s doesn’t have the experience that she does in manipulating Washington. Though he got Hillarycare passed as Obamacare more than a decade after her failure to do so, it was more of the climate change than anything he did himself. Same for gay marriage though who knows where she really stood on it as Bill signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law.
We can’t handle another Dumbocrat president with the Senate in their pocket. With one as powerful and intelligent as Hillary, we will be in a terrible hurt. The only thing that might hurt her is Bill. As Obama found out, there’s no keeping Bill down. He will take over whatever conversation you are having and make it his own. He’s selfish and egotistical, much like Obama, while Hillary is more driven for results in my opinion. The problem is that you and I won’t like the results unless you are a socialist.
One boy, whose identity Fox 5 is protecting, said they have no choice but to join a gang. He said he tries to stay busy and off the streets at night when the gangs are out and hunting for new members. He said most boys don’t choose to join a gang, but if they don’t, they and their families suffer consequences. He said gangs have ransacked the apartments of reluctant recruits.
We spend billions of dollars abroad and yet let our own youth waste away in areas like this. I’m not for handouts and that wouldn’t solve the problem here. What we need is to stop rewarding mothers for having kids that they can’t afford. When kids live in areas like this, where are the police? If you can see the gangs doing this, why not spend some money on ridding neighborhoods of them? Why not organize (Mr. Community Organizer) neighborhood families who want to make a difference and give them the tools to help their community?
I know it’s easier to scape goat the Zimmerman’s of the world than to go out and actually do something positive. Blame problems on others and don’t take responsibility for your own kids. Why would anyone want to let their kids live in such conditions? There has to be help made available to these areas and make joining a gang or selling drugs a bad option instead of a good one.
It’s also obvious that making guns illegal isn’t helping crime in NYC. Allow people to actually defend themselves and you make them less of a target and more a solution to their problems. Ensuring that victims are defenseless is not the way to prevent crime. In order to defend yourself in NYC, you have to become a criminal and own a gun. When you use it to defend yourself, what happens? You go to jail for having and firing a gun even in defense of your life and property. Look at states like Texas and Florida that allow you to defend yourself as a model to see crime drop.
Common sense certainly isn’t very common these days though.
