    If only they were motivated to read, get out of mom's basement, put away the weird porn and drop their KKK memberships.

    APOCALYPSEFUCKisShostikovitch says

    They gas you and fuck your face and charge you for all sorts of shit they don't do.

    It's called INNOVATION, ASSHOLES!

    And THEN you need the orthodontist work, Turtledove.

  • On 15 Oct 2014 in CIO/CTO/CFO/CEO, CL said:

    Thanks Rin. Are the above true even if the company is not a tech producer or a start-up?

    marco says

    Now even Rolling Stone wants to blow Obama.

    And NPR is the official War Radio Station - love the puff pieces on the "noble service" our war criminals are performing in Afghanistan, etc.

    It's over, folks. Get used to it.

    KPFA calls NPR "National Pentagon Radio" for that reason. They're not liberal, the Republicans just like to work the refs and fuck with everyone's funding.

    Because the GOP is made up of petulant assholes.

  • On 11 Oct 2014 in You guys were right about wages, CL said:

    What is the deal with grocery prices, they say there is no inflation at the grocery store (leaving out early this year because of the hard winter). But bacon is now 5-6 bucks a pound it doesn't seem like that long ago it was half that.

    Pigs had diarrhea. California has drought.

  • On 11 Oct 2014 in You guys were right about wages, CL said:

    The rightwing cries that the minimum wage increases not just the bottom, but a whole slew of wages. If you pay a McD worker $20, the Pizza manager who made the same would demand $40, and so on.

    In other words, the GOP fights minimum wage increases BECAUSE they cause wage inflation.

    Of course, they say "the consumer will pay at the checkout!", but the consumer contains more than low-wage workers, and we can shop around when a store finds a miraculous way to compete. And they have room to cut prices, since profits are at record highs.

    Welcome to liberalism, Cap'n!

  • On 7 Oct 2014 in State offers up to $100,000 in mortgage principal reduction, CL said:

    There's an income limit, if I recall. I know I did not qualify a few years ago for anything through Keep Your Home California, and some banks did not participate in principle reduction.

  • On 7 Oct 2014 in Save social security from the Republicans, CL said:

    Statements are online now, to save paper I believe. Set up an online account today! Pretty handy and good.

    Listen to the Libertarians, and THEN reject them.

    Yes. So if the game were "I am King, and therefore have all the riches. You are not, therefore you do not", then everyone who was not King would not be so due to their own lack of ambition?

    But that is not capitalism, is it? ;-)

    They can also be "kings" in their domain. Or even kingmakers. Labels only go so far.

    You believe that we live in a meritocracy? The point of the King analogy, is that there is limited capacity for jobs and goods. You can distribute them to one person, 1000 people, or to everyone to varying degrees. If you can acknowledge that one man having everything is wrong, then is 2 better? 200 Million? What does the scale look like in a good economic system?

    What makes you think that where we are at on the scale is good enough? That somehow we landed on the right way to distribute goods?

    Hardworking people can't afford to buy the goods they make. Others can't even afford basic shelter. Still others can't even get a job.

    Try harder! There are chairs for you!

  • On 25 Sep 2014 in Most employers say minimum wage should be increased, CL said:

    Most employers say minimum wage should be increased

    Employers can pay any wage now above the minimum they desire. I don't understand whose approval they need, as this title implies?

    They want a level playing field for the employer. If employers have all the leverage (and they do), they can pay very low wages(and they do). Higher wages are more fair and moral than the current minimum, but if the good employer does it, they are at a competitive disadvantage.

    zzyzzx says

    No mention of how the media said the election would be close but actual election was a 10 point difference?

    That's easy. It was Republican pollsters.

    What is the point of THAT game? To prevent wage pressure on the owners?

    It is simply a result of all the dynamics at play, projected as arbitrary numeric measures.

    Yes. So if the game were "I am King, and therefore have all the riches. You are not, therefore you do not", then everyone who was not King would not be so due to their own lack of ambition?

    They, on the other hand, can "blame" themselves and improve their strategy for the next round.

    But, if even at "full employment", we had 4% by design unemployed, that is 6 and a half million people! There are many guaranteed losers.

    In musical chairs, you could blame the people without chairs. Maybe they were slow, handicapped, old or distracted. Maybe they misunderstood and thought they had a right to a chair too.

    Me? I'd try to ensure there are enough chairs for everyone.

    If there are 15 jobs and 150 applicants, you can't blame the also-rans.

  • On 22 Sep 2014 in Whole Foods future looking grim, CL said:

    Well, it's interesting because the competition are going after them by offering organic goods! In that sense, they've won no matter what happens to them.

    Better that than the Boosh alternative, which was "just weaken the standard! Let the producer label it organic if they see fit!"

  • On 21 Sep 2014 in Florida, you have competition again, CL said:

    Ceffer says

    lostand confused says

    Nah this is Cali crazy. FL crazy seems to about killings and eating face-literally.

    That's a relief. Drinking accumulated menstrual blood and sperm sealed in a bottle for bizarre cultish purposes and thrown in the ocean must seem almost normal for Florida.

    This might be a good source of protein for a toothless hillbilly.

  • On 21 Sep 2014 in Does marijuana cause psychosis?, CL said:

    As a conservative, I think that these "scientists" are just trying to scare you and get their grant money.

    Science is only science when the science agrees with my worldview. Of course, I am open to science if the industry pays for, and gets, the results it wanted.

  • On 20 Sep 2014 in The big right-wing housing bubble lie - OC Housing News, CL said:

    I find that when someone promotes "a pox on both houses", they are usually disillusioned Republicans that finally realized the GOP sucks balls. But since they've spend the last decade or 3 criticizing Democrats, largely baselessly, they are left only with the disillusionment rhetoric and no party to call home.

    There's always libertardianism!! Watch Rand run (away from his father, his earlier rhetoric, his previous and current positions...in the end he'll be a Republican, but with some liberal positions thrown in!). Or stay home! Vote with your feet. Who tallies those votes, anyway? Who cares about the non-voter?

  • On 20 Sep 2014 in Where the jobs will be: Non-degreed health workers, CL said:

    It is good, hard, honest work. But it does seem to me that if you can't be a rich person yourself, there will be plenty of work for you to serve those who are.
