Lol Preacher sheshe! Don't let hypocrisy stop you!

I'm sorry you lost your livelihood, too. The world imploded because all of the presidents are trickle down believers. What idiot would give $TRILLIONS to the criminals while the middle class crumbled.

And why do you defend Obama for doing this? Shock Doctrine response to crisis aimed at bailing out those responsible.

Good on ya, sheshe! Side with the offender like a victim of abuse.

Really you guys?

the only way out is to give the crooks and robbers what they want at the barrel of a gun?

Do you remember what Iceland said to the motherfuckers and what happened to their economy after?

That's because our Presidents, all of them...

are proponents of Trickle Down economics. Obama had trillions of $ to throw around in his first months in office and gave it all to the white, male douchebags who blew up the world.

And now jobs are trickling down and all the idiots rejoice because they forgot Obama proved he's a trickle down believer in his first few months.

Some policies are much bigger than others

TPP isn't a single vote. It's making major economic policy decisions.

It's like saying Hillary's war vote was just one vote and we're not living with the repercussions 12 years later.

1 <> 1

Don't be so myopic.

My 3-D chess prowess says he's giving Hillary wiggle room

She can wait and find out which way the wind blows before announcing she's always been a supporter or opponent of TPP.

I don't like stories like this because they support the 1%'s meme that...

"charities" will provide the social safety net, ergo no one will slip through the cracks.

Experts, Lawyers, Labor activists or other, seeking advice regarding wage theft

I've talked about my situation at work here in the past. Specifically, my employer forces us to falsify our timesheets and only pays us 40 hours for M-F when we work evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays. My plan was to hang on as long as possible to get as much unpaid wages back at the end of the road. The end has arrived.

A member here, Major, posted a link to the US Department of Labor. There's an office near me and I can go down there next week. I also contacted a lawyer a while back who said he's never heard anything like this. Said it will likely settle the day he files. That's not really important, but it is an egregious case, that much can't be denied.

Friday is my last day. I'm going to be unemployed, likely for quite some time, meaning no income other than what I can get from a lawsuit. So my question is, what's my next move?

1. Say nothing to my employer on Friday, right? I'm thinking along the lines...ME: "I want to give you a chance to consider (a law suit) before you make your decision."
2. Go straight to the attorney? I just Googled attorneys. Is there a specific someone, organization, or union I should contact?
3. Go to DOL first?
4. Do both 2 & 3?

What you say? and thanks in advance

Emerging Democratic majority may never happen

My guess is that Mexican-Americans, a major Latino group, will vote more like Irish- and Italian-Americans than African-Americans. Moreover, as in the case of European-American ethnics, the ethnicity of Mexican-Americans, outside of heavily immigrant enclaves, may become attenuated pretty quickly.


One result of Latino assimilation may be the collapse of the very idea of a “nonwhite majority” except as a meaningless statistical category. Already a majority of Latinos identify themselves as “white” when given the option on census forms. As I argued in a 1996 New York Times Magazine essay, “The Beige and the Black,” because of the depth of anti-black racism in the U.S., America’s informal racial caste consciousness has always been binary—not whites vs. nonwhites, but blacks vs. non-blacks. The “white” category has been an elastic one that has expanded to incorporate successive non-black immigrant groups—first European “ethnics” and in the future, perhaps, Latinos and Asian-Americans.
