How one trumpkins justified trumps remarks on the NFL players

I was in a stupid conversation with a trumpkin last night. Stupid because I tried to talk to a trumpkin.

But I learned how this particular trumpkin justified trumps remarks. He sees the NFL as a "national" organization, not a private business. He thinks the president has hiring and firing power over the business.
He said if they don't want trump to have authority, they should remove national from their name.

My head truly hurt after that conversation.

Stuck working retail because I would be under employed in my area of expertise

Hiring managers and head hunters all are impressed when the see my resume but then tell me that I would be under employed in any open position.

Now I a forced to take a retail job which is really under employed.

It verified my position, the retail people worked much harder for much less than their employers.

Post Irma recollection - please add yours

So much of the Southeast US and the Caribbean experienced Hurricane Irma in some form or another. This is my thoughts following the storm.

Here in Hilton Head area, we faired reasonably well, there was some flooding and a little wind damage any power outages were minimal. I made it out to the beach today for a look, there is a giant navigation buoy washed up on the beach. It is a new beach attraction. The area evacuated while only the island areas were mandatory. This area was originally for cast as possible landfall. Yes we dodged a bullet at the cost of Florida.
So as thing started to move back to normal I realized that as we were experiencing these things, our lives were focused on the storm, the evacuation, getting back and the damage, the rest of the world still moved forward. They were not putting their lives on hold. It was an email I missed as we prepared for evacuation and the subsequent reminder that woke me up, the world is still there.

In all I can't stop thinking how lucky we were and how sad I am for everyone who lost so much, some my friends.
Life moves on!

Could Bannon be gone?

Some think by the end of the week that Bannon could be fired.

Trump advisers signal the knives are out for Bannon

Bridgewater, New Jersey (CNN)Two senior Trump advisers -- one inside the White House and another who recently departed -- signaled Sunday that the knives are out for Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump's controversial chief strategist.

The comments come as a source inside the White House tells CNN that White House chief of staff John Kelly has soured on Bannon, a political operative with deep ties to the 'alt-right' and the former head of the conservative news site Breitbart.
Bannon is seen as pursuing his own agenda, which does not mesh with the power structure Kelly is putting in place, the source added.
National security adviser H.R. McMaster was asked three times by NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday whether he can work with Bannon in the White House. McMaster dodged the question each time and eventually left it an open question as to whether Bannon is motived by advancing the President's agenda.

What happened to posting links to articles?

I have clicked on 5 threads tonight that had excerpts from articles, but no link to the full article.

Didn't we demand links to sources?

I had an interview today, turned out it was part time work

I had applied for a full time technical position at Lowe's and received a call for an interview. I assumed it was for the job I applied to, but about an hour before the interview I received an email that I was not selected toe the job I applied to. My thought was WTF? But I went to the interview anyway and that's where I found out it was a part time job and they couldn't guarantee more than 10 hours a week and they could be in 2 hours a day. Top that off with no one would tell me what the job pays.

That doesn't even pay me to drive the 10 miles to work. They took my application and stuck me in a position that they can't keep filled.

They keep employees at part time so they can avoid paying g benifits.
