I think we should continue our policy of making guns and ammo as cheap and plentiful as possible while disenfranchising the electorate, making them poor and preventing them from feeding/housing themselves and their families. Thats a problem that eventually solves itself.

Hey, I started out mopping the floor just like you guys. But now... now I'm washing lettuce. Soon I'll be on fries; then the grill. And pretty soon, I'll make assistant manager, and that's when the big bucks start rolling in.

We're just ungrateful little farkers, aren't we?  No love for the job creators, even though we'd be out on the street without them.

Years ago I had a boss that efter chewing the crew out for something one of his hires did told us that we were lucky to work for him. And if he wanted he would have a line around the building with 30 people to replace each one of us that would be happy to work for him. He was a delusional ahole that got fired for sexual harassment. He is a pastor now from what I hear.

Why Socialized Health Care Is Bad.

a one act play buy bunner


"So why wouldn't tax funded social medicine work?"

"It wouldn't limit my potential to make as much money as possible."

"I dunno, there's guys in Sweden and England delivering the goods to the ill poors and rich alike and they got serious homes and cars and pretty wives and sh*t."

'Ah, but how much CAPITAL do they have?  What their opportunities to rise into the elite multi-millionaire class?"

"So, the point of practicing medicine is to have more expensive sh* t you don't need than the other guy practicing medicine?"

"Do you even live in this country?"

"Have you ever actually laid hand on a patient?"

"Sorry, I have to take this call.  It's my broker."

"I'd be shocked to hear it was anybody else."

I am carted away my DHS agents as a subversive

Mike Chewbacca: meat0918: I'm in the 30%, but I am overworked.

Can't find qualified programmers, which doesn't surprise me, as the unemployment rate for people with a Bachelor's or higher is at a seasonally adjusted  3.8% for May 2013

Then your company isn't offering enough money. When supply is low, prices are supposed to increase. That encourages others to enter the market and supply increases which causes price to drop.


You don't understand, Mike.  That's not how it works for businesses.  They're supposed to control how much they pay for services and goods; the free market isn't supposed to apply to their costs, only their profits.

Don't worry. One day the US may catch up with the vacation time of worker's paradise like China and Bangladesh. Oh who am I kidding?

Whenever people are too fed up with bigger problems to give a fark about the latest Sony vs. Microsoft video game console or whether the latest crappy Hollywood comic book movie properly addressed the original cannon.

Judging by Fark threads, not any time soon.

It's their escape.

 When they no longer have an escape... when there is nothing left to lose... then there will be revolution.

 And it will be ugly.

/would be nice if things got patched up before it came to that, but humanity has a tendency to not do that.

Full Metal Retard: abrannan: I think it's something long overlooked in the Obamacare/Universal Health Care/single payer system debates.  How many workers would, if they no longer had to worry about obtaining medical insurance, jump at the opportunity to start their own business?  What would the impact of such a boom in small businesses have on the US economy?  On available jobs?  On manufacturing?  Yes, 95% of them would fail in the first 5 years, which economically just means that all of their start-up funds were injected into the economy, rather then creating a self-sustaining cash engine.  The potential for investment and purchasing businesses would shake some of that money loose from existing businesses who have been sitting on larger and larger piles of cash reserves.

You're an idiot.

I'm a small business man, and the last thing I want is more mandates from lazy idiots in Washington.

Every business in America is putting off hiring and expanding until they can figure out what this thing is going to cost.  until demand picks up because the only reason any business will hire more people is because of increase in demand for that business's goods/services. Whole segments of the economy will no longer be viable with dramatically more expensive labor.  It's a disaster.  It has prevented a normal economic recovery from the 2008 crash.

Programmers are weird.   At a certain point, the money doesn't matter.  My best 2 offers leaving college were for $72K in SF Bay area, and $112K ($90K salary + $90K bonuses over 4 years + actual benefits like 401K matching, which is another $5K right there) in Seattle with lower COL and no income tax.   Took the Bay Area because the Bay Area job was just more fun with better hours, more responsibility, and less processy bullshiat.  If they'd like to pay me more, that's awesome.  But it's not necessary because I'm enjoying life and paying off my debts with a little bit left over each month.

We're trying to hire now, and we really can't.  There's just not enough people in the Bay Area who are free and qualified for what we want to do at any price.  It's not a matter of money, it's a matter of finding anyone anywhere who is qualified AND wants to put up with your shiat.

/Heck, look up the term acqui-hire.
//Also, everyone needs to take a deep breath and say "Cost of Living" over and over.   $72K in SF Bay area gets you a roommate.  $200K in Bay Area gets you a nice apartment that probably does not have asbestos in the ceiling.


So let me get this straight, you took less money in a city with a higher cost of living and in a state in which you have to pay tax.

I get two week a year at my firm, which we have to accrue. So, it takes until the end of the year to actually have two weeks.

I put down for vacation at the end of july into first week of august, but i'm already getting grumblings that I may have to change it.
