Diogenes: A simplistic analysis that can barely adhere to the surface of the issue, leading to wildly incorrect conclusions?  From Fox News, no less?

Well slap my ass and call me "Sally."

"But what if they took six hours and it turned out that they were getting more productivity and they were doing a better job?" Beckel asked, once again pushing back.

real_headhoncho: Dinki: Bolling has one son. I wonder if he would be willing to have his kid work for $1.00 an hour.

Oh and he's also Roman Catholic. Me thinks the Pope would slap this guy upside the head if they ever met.

I would pay all of my meager money to see that happen.


You don't wanna get Popeslapped especially not by this guy Benedict keeps his popehand STRONG.

That's two independent thought alarms in one day. The hosts must be overstimulated. Willie, remove all the colored chalk from the sets.

Oh yes.  Take labor practice concept from China.  That's a great idea.  It'll be a boon to the Suicide Prevention Netting Company of Toledo, Ohio.

Yeah.  China builds ghost cities to keep people employed.  A large percentage of the country is literally employed to do busy work in order to keep the peace.  Something tells me that the brain trust at The Five would shiat the bed if the government were paying people to build giant, empty  metropolii in the middle of the Dakotas.

udhq: sendtodave: udhq: sendtodave: In China, for example, it's Chinese person, and non-Chinese person (foreigner). All other races are "foreigner." Secondarily, urban vs rural. Etc etc on down until you just are at "my family, not my family"

You do realize that China has hundreds of different native ethnicities, right?  And most of them don't care much for the Han.

Oh, sure.

That's part of the "etc.etc."

Yeah, but to argue that China is in any way "homogenous" just couldn't be further from the truth.


Wait, you mean they're not all Chinese like Sulu?

sendtodave: Who, me? I'd love it.

I'm just not going to pretend that racism doesn't exist, and wouldn't be a real barrier, though, when it kinda even is in the model country.


This reminds me of the people in 2008 who were going on TV and saying things like "Oh, I would absolutely vote for a black president, I just don't think the rest of the country is ready."

edmo: The problem with news people is they have no real education. Say, a History degree. But they're darned proud to demonstrate that shortcoming as often as possible.


The problem with your statement is that you have mistakenly identified the village idiots that constitute "The Five" as "news people". It's an easy enough mistake to make given the entire Fox Network has disguised itself as a news organization. The Five are no more "news people" than the children who come to your doorstep on Halloween are Transformers or members of S.H.I.E.L.D..  Do not be deceived.
And getting a History degree is, in fact, getting a real education. It may surprise you to learn that history is important.

Chigau: This always bugs me to hear about how China has "No Labor Laws."  They actually have a relatively detailed set of laws in regards to safety, wage, and social welfare.  The problem is that they have little to no enforcement in practice, no education on the presence of those laws, and I don't think they even have communication requirements on these laws (think the state/fed postings in the breakroom at your work.  China doesn't do that)  

If we followed Chinese regulations with US levels of enforcement, big business would be screaming uncle when they had to pitch in for higher number of holidays with mandatory triple pay for work on the holiday, extended social welfare contributions, housing for employees (ok, its shiatty housing in china...)  and mandatory employment contracts....


They also have a constitution.

http://english.people.com.cn/constitution/constitution.html

Article 34. All citizens of the People's Republic of China who have reached the age of 18 have the right to vote and stand for election, regardless of nationality, race, sex, occupation, family background, religious belief, education, property status, or length of residence, except persons deprived of political rights according to law.

Article 35. Citizens of the People's Republic of China enjoy freedom of speech, of the press, of assembly, of association, of procession and of demonstration.

Article 36. Citizens of the People's Republic of China enjoy freedom of religious belief. No state organ, public organization or individual may compel citizens to believe in, or not to believe in, any religion; nor may they discriminate against citizens who believe in, or do not believe in, any religion. The state protects normal religious activities. No one may make use of religion to engage in activities that disrupt public order, impair the health of citizens or interfere with the educational system of the state. Religious bodies and religious affairs are not subject to any foreign domination.


It's ADORABLE!

If you hold a history degree - and claim that minimum wage and labor laws should be repealed - your degree should be revoked by your alma mater.

mcreadyblue: Well, SS and Medicare are unstable past 20 years and I don't hear the Democrats suggesting the age limits for both be raised to 70.


that's because that will just push it back out 20 years. Democrats have been pushing for getting rid of the cap of taxable income to more accurately reflect income these days and *poof* we're pretty fiscally secure.

...oh wait, you're just one of those people that don't like those greedy moochers getting hand outs from the government, aren't you?

"It would be nice if we had that luxury," co-host Dana Perino answered. %ldquo;But the baby boomers have made sure we are going to be tied to our jobs for the rest of our lives and not benefit from Social Security and Medicare like they did."
That's highly amusing, because surely she knows who REALLY wants to destroy Social Security and Medicare: the GOP.
