Do you take pride in firing middle class workers?

If so, read on.

As a white collar hitman you are responsible for cutting the waste while increasing the bottom line. You seek out the employees that are not productive, hurt morale, or that are generally bad for the company. Your loyalty is to the company and must take no excuse. You have no peers. You have no rivals. You answer to the board in most cases and to the executives in the rest. There is no quota, but your bonus will be dependent on your replacement ratio and subsequent production increase.

The job requires that you be unemotional and detached(often found in the Aquarius). You will, in many cases, know the personal lives of the fired before you share their fate. In circumstances where you are not already privy to their plight, it will most certainly be shared with you at their termination. Your will must be strong and unwavering.

Do you think you have what it takes?

Now for the hard part: the replacement. Your responsibility is to hire the most suited for the position, whatever position that may be. You are seeking impeccable character, an aptitude for learning, courage to deliver the worst news, a cheerful disposition, and precise attention to detail. A tall order? Yes! An impossible task? No! But wait! The hardest part is yet to come! The replacements must be from the lower class. They must have no corporate experience. You are looking for the downtrodden and the exploited; the ones with potential yet remain stuck. You must be ever mindful, paying attention to small details about the lowly. Take notes and ask questions. Observe interactions and exchanges. Some things to look for might include a waitress calculating change in her head when she was given a quarter to bump the change to the next dollar, a bus driver sharing wisdom with the broken, or maybe a cashier remaining unshaken in the face of belligerence. In essence, you fire the lazy, the privileged, the lackadaisical, the glutton, and the entitled. You hire the hungry, the striving, and the grateful.



Your OP is flawed, son. The presumption that the businesses sacking middle class workers are REPLACING them is divorced from reality. They are piling those workers' tasks onto the shoulders of those who are NOT fired.

Middle class Americans are working harder than ever, for less than ever. Your implicit premise that they deserve it betrays a callow and wanting character, son.

It's in a company's best interest that it hire the best candidate. That's how they stay in business and grow.


Many CEOs of publicly traded companies are less interested in their companies "staying in businss and growing" than they are about raiding those companies. Just look at Hostess, which went bankrupt while the CEO took home a bonus in the 8 figure range. In the past (pre-Reagan), there were regulations and there were well funded and well trained regulators whose job it was to keep that from happening. You see, the actual OWNERS of these publicly traded companies (stock holders) are absentee owners. They're not allowed behind the counter. SOMEONE has to protect their interests against potentially dishonest employees - after all, many of these companies are worth BILLIONS. That's a lot of unguarded dough, in the event that a board of directors and a CEO want to work together as parasites rather than as stewards. That arrangement can make you more money, faster, than actually EARNING your bread (especially if you're only where you are due to connections rather than ability).

Unguarded money is unsafe money. You would not send your teenaged daughter unchaperoned to a place where lots of young guys and alcohol are present. Because you know that she would be unsafe. By the same token, you would not leave large sums of cash improperly guaranteed. Investors are going to start shying away from our stock market if the unwise deregulation binge of the past 30 years is not corrected - soon.

The Catholic Church as of late has been following the playbook of notable protestant mega-church Preachers such as Rob Bell of Mars Hill Bible Church.

With the election of Pope Francis, Catholicism is seeing radical ideologically transformation that has many Catholics feeling abandoned. Francis' approval ratings have been skyrocketing, even among atheists, as he blurs the line between right and wrong to appeal to a broader, more worldly audience. To many, this position seems more about growing congregations than spreading the message of the Church.

The negative sentiment toward Francis is not held by most Catholics. A recent poll (http://www.religionnews.com/2013/10/04/ ... -marriage/) suggests that 2/3 of Catholics agree with Francis that the church is too "obsessed" with certain issues. Many lifelong conservative Catholics, however, are testing the waters of Protestantism as they skip Sunday Mass to attend traditional evangelical services.

The liberal Catholics see the Pope as more naive than sinister. His statements do not directly contradict Catholic teachings, but his statements leave room for broad interpretation that is easily misconstrued. Many feel that he is not taking the hard line stance to make the church more inviting to non believers, and that believing and following traditional doctrines should only be expected after coming to the faith.


Given the thousands and thouands of children raped with the consent and willing blind eye of the church hierarchy, I would expect the church to do whatever it takes to "get along" in the world upon which it wishes to continue preying. If some of the knuckleheads that have been contributing to these rapes decide to drag their dumb asses to the puerile doctrines of the evangelicals, only people with way too much shit to give will give a shit

Former Saturday Night Live star, actor, screenwriter and director Rob Schneider – a lifelong Democrat – is throwing his support behind Republican candidate for Governor Tim Donnelly this week, in an all-out effort to save California.

In an exclusive to the Washington Times, Rob Schneider reveals, “As a lifelong Democrat, I am horrified by what’s happening in this State with the Democrat Supermajority now in the legislature in California. The Democrats in my party have abandoned me, and so I have abandoned them.”

In a video released today to the Times, Schneider cites California’s fledgling business climate and specifically, “the Democrats’ failed policies” which have driven California into the ground – and driven film business out of the state in droves.

“It’s not about being a Republican, it’s not about being a Democrat … it’s about doing what’s best for the State of California.”

Schneider says he often talks to other actors and producers about the impact of the State’s failed policies on film production. He asks his colleagues, “Do you really want to make a movie in Louisiana, or do you want to do it right here in California?” He cites California as having the best crews, the best studio space, and the best actors in the world, “yet we’re shipping jobs to other States.”

LOLOL. Mary said Bobby told her that Mattsaid that Susie thinks you're stupid!

As someone who was actually THERE, I can tell you Susie never said that.

I can't say WHAT she said, because I am sworn to secrecy, but Bill said that Fred told him Mary saw a screenshot of it. I would say more but my personal honor is more important than creating forum drama.


but apparently, his personal honor includes accusing people with NO EVIDENCE!

Well, he was an honor student at Devry, so...


Chamberlain maid.

Sweet.


What? Do you need EVIDENCE that one of your own has outed people on the forum???????? Ask chuck about his hunter2 sok and what he did conspiring with molotov to out Arronsongs. :lol:

Hunter II outed his HIV STATUS, not his name, address, etc.

He merely linked to an online mag where Aaron stated publicly that he was HIV positive.

There is no evidence whatsoever that Molly was involved, or knew anything about it until Hunter posted it.

Aaron was no more "outed" than you were, Devry.

Posting something on an anonymous internet site your kids shouldn't even be reading to begin with.... doesn't constitute harm DUMBASS. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks for proving what a sociopathic, deranged, cyberbully you are. *chuckle

Well done!

So, not wanting you to badmouth her kids makes her a "cyber bully" in our universe?

I can certainly see where Nancy was a "cyber-bully," now. I see it all.



Calling another poster's child "fucked-up" is against the rules on this forum. Your endless attempts to excuse and CONDONE what TGC did because you areher ass puppet are irrelevant.

Oh, but that rule makes us all cyber bullies, according to Devry.



Hey DUMBASS? I'm not at work and rarely post there because NO ONE is up at 0400 RETARD. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

So suck a phat cock bitch!!!!



*Suck *Suck *Suck

What's that? I can't hear you over your groveling to keep your Senior Moderator status THIS TIME. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:



Speaking of sucking cock, where's Shintao been? :huh:

So, what I said is absolutely true - I contradicted your narrative, and all you could respond with was an ad hominem?

Thank you for that admission, son.

yes... YOU SHOULD! aaaaaaaaaa HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH... yes DO IT! HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA

come on genius DO IT NOW

meanwhile, since, as you claimed, you posting on your computer at work makes your posts their property, RIGHT? I am sure they would agree that it IS their business. but, what is the big deal, is there something that you would feel ashamed about if they read your posts? isn't that what you said? You are proud of your posts here, RIGHT? Shouldn't you WANT them to read your posts at LF?

I posted on a company computer. I never wanted my bosses to read my posts. I doubt that he does - nor should anyone threaten him with such. He posts here ANONYMOUSLY, and he has never outed anyone.



I doubt Isacunt cares. She feigned outrage

But you have declared her a cyber bully SPECIFICALLY on the evidence that she would not want YOU to badmouth her kid.

So, we see the bar you put on that term, and that puts everything you claim about her and nancy in perspective.

You sound more like your mom every day.



Man, I hear you - I need some dick, too. Getting really thirsty. Need a thick load.

Jesus, you contards and your dick thirst.



The mission of police officers is to preserve life, and while I don't agree with what they did they had obviously deemed the structure to dangerous to enter. Would it have benefited this family to lose another member to the fire that took everything they had?

I'm pretty damn sure that by the time the parents woke up, the house was already about to collapse, because otherwise they'd have gotten their own damn kid.

It was the tazings in the cop car while cuffed that are hard to explain by touting that argument.

Her posts are the evidence. Remember when I started a poll on the MOST obnoxious poster? Thinking I'd easily run away with it? And everyone posted Isacunt was the most obnoxious....... :angry: :angry: :angry:


That's just plain stupid talk there. :huh:

Hell, one of your own mods felt SO bad they gave TGC Nancy's IP address........


Keep lying and reframing and back-slobbering, Devry. You've made it clear that you will call a person "cyber-bully" in response to them not wanting you to badmouth their kid.

That word loses all meaning when someone with no standards uses it. As to the rest of your tripe. put up of shut up. Just a few posts back, you claimed you were done making this unsourced claim. Now here you are again, on page later, right back at it.

Reply to: phillippine relief effort: post #24

Not if they don't exist...anymore PayPal receipts posted?


Many people who give say nothing. They just give.

For some, that's actually a requisite of their faith - for others, a matter of principle. For some, giving is not ABOUT being seen doing it. Asking people to speak of their charity is not unlike demanding a fellow swear on the bible. It's asking him to waive his principles in order to convince others that he has principles.

When my grandmother died, a lot of old timers showed up at her funeral, talking about how she fed them during the depression. None of us ever knew anything about it. But we had all witnessed Grandma's quiet charity and great personal dignity. She never, EVER blew her own horn. I had her portrait painted in 1976. It hangs in a place of honor in the hallway of my home.

If I HAD given to the relief effort, I would not walk past that portrait having bragged about it to you. I give you kudos for having donated, and I find no fault that you told others - I will assume the best intention: The reason you challenged them was to leverage your donation into more donations.

But I stand by what I said. Charity is a private matter, and one that should be undertaken humbly and with gratitude. Giving is a way of thanking your "higher power" for abundance, and agreeing with that power for the kind of world you choose. Every dollar you give and every dollar you SPEND is a vote for the world you wish to live in. Tell me, if one fellow buys nothing but fairly traded coffee (at about twice the price of commercial crap) from, say, Costa Rica; and another fellow donates 25 bucks for disaster relief to Costa Rica in the wake of a storm - Who has done more? Who has been more charitable?

Who is to say?

Moreover, if a fellow with little gives the little that he has, and a fellow with much gives a modest, but higher, gift - who has shown greater charity?

This question ^^^ is one of the reasons that charity is not for touting. If I give 100 bucks to charity and you give 25, it may be that you were much harder hit by your gift, yet gave with an open heart. And I might be a very stingy person, just showing off or trying to calm my conscience for my Uncharitable behaviors at home.

I hope that the charity you engaged in is indicative of a charitable spirit AT HOME, because that is where charity begins, and no amount of charity to people you will never meet is EVER going to make up for being uncharitable to the people you are supposed to love and look out for and stand beside in a knife fight. I hope you are showing charity to the people God put in your life for you to love.


That's right. Use me as the excuse to do nothing and claim you did. My being angry about slowly becoming a vegetable due to incurable neurological degeneration has nothing to do with the fact that it is proved that conservatives give more than fucking loser liars like you.

Oh btw - fuck you...


This is what comes of politicizing it. You did a good thing. In my opinion, the challenge was a bad idea.

And, just for the record, the only thing that has been "proved" is that republicans are more likely to itemize gifts to charity. No one has even TRIED to quantify the sticky wicket of who actually gives more to their fellow man. I have no doubt that liberals are more likely to drop a buck in a stinky bum's cup. Those dollars never show up on a tax form.

My mom is on social security plus a small pension. She spends virtually every penny she makes in helping other people. She also volunteers, and she also makes a difference in my home, where she lives, EVERY SINGLE DAY. I know this for a fact. Not one penny shows up on a tax form. Not one penny.

Your claim is simply a load of political crap, put together by ideologues using selective inputs, and spewtarded by intellectual lightweights. It is what it is, son.

Red Cross always seems to be there... I donated through Salvation Army, who have a hand in many of the same relief efforts.


IMHO, you can never go wrong with the Salvation Army. The red cross, not so much. They're good, but not great. S.A.? They're great, IMO.

I don't expect congratulations for it asshole. I thought it would be a fun way to raise money for a good cause by issuing a little challenge and having a little competition.


I'm glad I gave you the benefit of the doubt - that's exactly how I took your challenge. I still decline it.

But you fucking libbys are too afraid of any competition - I should have known...


That's your story. It lives in your head - right there with, "Whoever claims the most charity on their taxes is the most charitable."

The question is to what degree do we want government "protecting us from harm"? Do you want to go the Bloomberg route? Or do wish to attack this with common sense?


Having a known poison banned from use in restaurants is pretty common sense. The stuff is HANDY. It's very easily replaced - but it's HANDY.

And it kills. It's REALLY, REALLY bad for humans. It's unnatural and VERY easily replaceable. Common sense is to freaking get it out of restaurants and out of processed foods.

Southern cooking is notorious for cookingwith Lard, which the Feds want to ban.... Good luck...



An easier way to get a healthier population would be to limit Foodstamp recipients to non-fattening, more nutritious foods----like the way it used to be.


I'd like to see a link about them banning lard.

I agree with limiting food stamps to actual food.

Typical liberal thinking: Everyone else is too ignorant to know what's good for them,


Yes, dumbass, most of us are not chemists, and with queers like you voting to ship our jobs overseas, we are working too many hours to get a pot graduate degree in chemistry in order to keep up with what industry is putting in our kibbles and bits.

We have hired professionals to keep an eye on industry. You're welcome to suck my dick if you don't like it, sissy.

Just joking, you little glory holer. Keep your horny mouth away from my genitals.



The people who end up getting screwed in these type of regulations are the responsible people. More people than not know that eating certain types of food in large quantities ain't healthy. I work in a place with a thousand employees. I see the same people eating the same unhealthy food 5 days a week. When talking with them they know it is harmful. But then you have others who moderate those type of foods. The problem is when the government, and the left in particular, want to start regulating they play to the lowest common denominator. And you end with Bloomberg and Michelle Obama types dictating what we should eat and drink.

Yes, the first lady tried to get school lunches to be healthier - the lunches I pay for. Shame on her, for trying to make a bureaucracy spend my money wisely and properly, you hack..



I render down beef suet - makes the VERY VERY BEST French fries. There is no comparison. I buy Amish Roll butter from Minerva dairy - superb. I save all my bacon fat. My grand mother hit 90 years old- never ever wore shoes ( except to go tobingo ) - ate 1/4 to 1/2 pound butter a day - drank a gallon of coffee - made heavenly egg noodles to die for - made scrapple - pickled pigs feet - pickled beef heart & tongue. The list goes on & on & on. I grew up in food lover Heaven.

All of those are natural substances we have been eating since pre-history. Trans fats? Created in the lab. Let the lab boys handle it. They say ban it? Freaking ban it.



Ever wonder why we have an epidemic of cancer and diabetes and heart disease in this country?

Look no further than the BIG FOOD cartel, and BIG PHARMA, who continually poison us with chemicals, and promote disease causing FrankenFoods!

And Huey is their self-appointed spokesman. He SHOULD be embarrassed to prattle on for his own killers. But, he contarded. He prattles what he's instructed to prattle.



It's a slippery slope when the Feds start banning certain food items... I think Warning the public is enough. The Government cannot force people to eat responsibly.

Ban can mean very different things to different people. Telling a RESTAURANT they cannot slip transfats into your body is not the same as telling YOU that you cannot buy that crap and ingest it. Telling Betty Crocker to spend LITERALLY 2 cents more per package of pancake mix rather than poisoning you and setting you up for stents in your heart? THAT AIN'T FASCISM. That;s GOVERNMENT, serving citizens and policing industry.

Never gonna happen, so be happy as they kill you, dumbass.



We already are eating ( between ) 2 & 4 pounds of insect parts - rodent hair - rodent droppings every single year in the processed foods we buy. But that's an OK number, according to the FDA; & we all know, the government never lies.So sleep easy my friend - the FDA is on the job.

Oh, in that case, let's allow industry to spice my noodles with ricin.

Dumbass.

Life's a trade off, I choose to drink a couple of cups of coffee in the morning with half and half. So I don't drink any sugary, caffeinated drinks after that. I generally eat soup and small sandwiches, usually turkey or chicken, made with a tortilla instead of bread and keep the sodium down. Every few weeks I then give myself a dinner of meat, pizza or pasta. I also go to the gym at least 5 time a week with a lot of cardio and muscle conditioning.

Moderation and responsibility. That is what it takes. Not government control or regulation.

If only you were moderately retarded and moderately an ideological hack.

Reply to: Looks like the sexually confused have run into a glitch: post #4

I don't recall the 14th Amendment making an exception of black midgets, retards, amputees, homosexuals, people with a missing eye, people with aspeech impediment, Mexicans, white janitors, parolees, or Chinese babies.

If equal protection under the law doesn't apply to all, then who is protected?

Making a girl go to the bathroom with a boy in the name of equal protection under the law is tantamount to making a Mexican speak Cantonese to achieve equal protection under the law. It's just fuucking silly.

I hope the measure passes and the sensible people win.

The time has come to say, "Sorry your boy thinks he's a girl. Home school, or he can go to the boys room, and fuuck himself."

Reply to: Employers Can Impose Their Religious Beliefs On Their Employees: post #406

Freedom of association. If a private restaurant does not want to server blacks, or whites, or gays, they should be free to do so. As long as its a well known stated policy. Some would patronize such establishments, a vast majority would not. Let the market decide. Chic Filla lost millions because of views held by their CEO. Not something they acted on, not something that impacted their hiring. The personal views of Orson Card cost Enders Game millions at the box office. Discrimination is no longer in vogue. Those that practice it should be free to do so but expect some blowback.

What is a "private" restaurant?



So now I want you, son, to explain exactly why an employer must be forced to provide services to their employees regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, age, etc that either contradict their religious beliefs OR that some of their employees do not need.

Who is being regulated is the insurance companies. As a homosexual, you wish to PRETEND that it's the employer being regulated - much as you pretend a puussy is shaped like a carrot.

Now, corporations DO NOT HAVE religious beliefs. People do.



Then they shouldn't "force" any other beliefs on anyone else, either, right?

They should not, nor do they. They simply do not allow Sharia Law or Mosaic Law into the secular world where they DO NOT BELONG.
