  • Question: Would a law abiding 18 year old have an age discrimination case against Wal-Mart?

    I suppose if Wal-Mart said.they'd stop selling ammo to Muslims, women, or blacks the media wouldn't be applauding their stupid gun stunt. I thought AGE was a federally protected status. So I ask if a LAW ABIDING 18 or 19 year old wants to buy a product that is legal in their state of residence, and the multibillion dollar company WAL-MART refuses, is this a civil rights case?

    European countries and major corporations are pressuring President Donald Trump to remain in the Paris climate agreement despite his promises on the campaign trail to withdraw the United States from the Obama-era deal that never gained congressional approval.The Trump administration so far is sticking with being undecided—at least until Trump returns to the United States from his first foreign trip, where on Friday, he’s meeting with Group of Seven ally countries, which support the agreement.Back home, the pressure is growing from multinational corporations, even the energy sector, which have opposed stricter limitations on carbon.Exxon Mobil Corp., once run by Trump’s...

    A Kasich run may be just the thing to thoroughly demoralize the Big Business/Big Amnesty/Make Nice wing of the Republican National Committee As Presidential contender, all he wanted to do was make nice and preach hollow niceties all while abandoning conservative principles and pushing a smarmy liberalism that taxes us into oblivion and forcing higher spending. As governor of Ohio, he signed off on conservative reforms, but only because of a hard-core, supermajority Republican legislature. And it looks as if he wants to run for President .... again. Give me a break.

    I see where big business has decided to join together to fight President Trump. It was supposedly brought to a head by the ban decision. I somehow doubt that but that. My problem with these business leaders is that they seem to have made a business decision on pure emotion and not business logic. Who in their right mind would be an investor in a company that puts aside informed logic for an emotional decision? They seem to be disregarding the logic of a safe America for the emotional feel good emotion. Now i am sure part of their decision...

    Many leaders of big business support Hillary Clinton. Last week she announced a list of 56 corporate backers. No wonder Bernie Sanders is still running against her. Hillary Clinton always has attracted well-connected business supporters. Even before she ran for office. Remember the lucrative cattle trades when she was Arkansas first lady? That came from a local businessman who knew how important it was to have friends in the governors mansion. Bill Clinton had plenty of business support when he ran for president. As New York senator she was quite friendly with Wall Streeta relationship that continued afterwards, with her...

    When it comes to religious liberty debates, big businesses dont want the people to decide. Or at least they dont want the people of Missouri to decide.... ...Missouri was debating a bill that, if passed, would have gone to the people to vote on, not the governors desk. ....But apparently even allowing people to vote on a constitutional amendment that protected the religious liberty of both those opposed to and in favor of same-sex marriagea bill that the citizens of Missouri were free to reject if they opposed itwas a step too far for big businesses.

    It may not be politically expedient to admit, but Iran is engaged in a live, "hot" war with the United States and its NATO allies -- even as we continue to do business with it. US officials have recently detailed Iran's latest hostile military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan, including the training and arming of insurgent groups directly responsible for the death of many Americans on the battlefield.

    Let me offer this prediction for 2016: We'll see a banner year in gun sales. How do I know this? The nation's best firearms salesman plans to launch an ad campaign that will produce both demand and defiance, and he’s going to start just as soon as possible, as the Washington Post's Juliet Eilperin reports: President Obama will press ahead with a set of executive actions on guns next week despite growing concerns in the United States over terrorism that have dampened some Americans' enthusiasm for tighter firearms restrictions.

    Hard lessons about Big Business, the Chamber of Commerce, their undue influence in the Republican Party have been a hard one for me to accept, and yet too many people are content to shout ''Establishment" without really identifying the core problems This has been the hardest lesson for me to learn. I never thought that being pro-business could compromise ones fight for liberty and limited government. Yet I have learned to accept what Scott Rasmussen argued after the disappointing 2012 President Elections: too many people still see the Republicans Party as pro Big Business. There is much truth to this...

    Tennessee Republican Senator Bob Corker, author of the treasonous Corker Cardin bill to facilitate President Obamas nuclear weapons treaty with Islamist Iran, has made another inexplicable betrayal of American military superiority and indeed the future of America itself. The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, which Corker authored, requires the Administration transmit to Congress all documents related to the JCPOA including side agreementsprior to a 60-day review period and subsequent vote. Theres no doubt that Obama has not complied with the terms of the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, indeed Senator Corker said theres no question that two of the...

Scott Fischbach, the director of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life uncovered the information showing a clinical trial approved by the Food and Drug Administration uses brain tissue from aborted unborn babies to treat macular degeneration. StemCells Inc. will inject fetal brain stem cells into the eyes of up to 16 patients to study the cells effect on vision. In its press release announcing the clinical trial, StemCells Inc....

Kass, the Addie Clark Harding Professor Emeritus in the Committee on Social Thought and the College at the University of Chicago and former chairman of the Presidents Council on Bioethics under former President George W. Bush, has written a report entitled The Meaning of Life In the Laboratory. Kass discusses the morality surrounding the US governments funding of research on human embryonic stem cells, cells derived from early embryos produced by in vitro fertilization in assisted-reproduction clinics. According to the report, the use of human embryos is justified by the advancements of science which demands that...

    The Obama Administration has chosen to back Ebola vaccines made using cell lines cultivated from aborted babies, despite the fact that the government itself acknowledged that moral alternatives could also be used, according to a pro-life organization that specializes in advocating for morally produced vaccines.  Children of God for Life says it has discovered that several Ebola vaccines in development for use worldwide are being made using the aborted fetal cell lines.The proof of the use of the controversial cell lines in the manufacture of the vaccines is found in the patents. According to the patents, Glaxo SmithKline (GSK) and NIAID...

    Maxine Waters the fiery liberal from Los Angeles known for calling House Republican leadership demons and threatening to nationalize oil companies has gone from the scourge of Big Business to a sympathetic ally for corporate America. Its no accident. Waters is executing this transformation by seizing on the growing divide between conservative Republicans and Big Business and leveraging her position as the top Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, where in the coming weeks she will play a role in the battles over extending a terrorism insurance program and the Export-Import Bank. A large part of her...

    Imperial Presidency: Secret scheming between the White House and Big Business on immigration is all about political cover for unconstitutional executive action. Cheap labor now isn't worth socialism tomorrow. If high-tech giants such as Cisco, Intel, Microsoft, Oracle and Accenture endorse President Obama's impending executive orders giving amnesty to multitudes of illegal aliens without congressional assent, America will in essence have become the corporatocracy the Saul Alinskys of the world have always claimed they fear. Politico reports that some of these firms and others are talking with high-ranking Obama aides, the White House's goal being these companies' public backing for...

    Seriously. Things are beginning to look kinda pathetic for the Kerry/ Obama foreign policy doctrine. Just this week Russia violated an arms treaty by testing a new type of cruise missile; and Obamas response was to send a letter to Vladimir Putin (not joking) explaining his disapproval. Future ramifications might include a new hashtag campaign, unfriending Putin on Facebook, or sending angry text messages late at night. And, really, given the Wests reaction to Putins acts of aggression in Ukraine, it only makes sense that the former KGB agent would feel emboldened to disrespect an obscure Reagan era treaty. Vladimir...

    The current political battle over the bill to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank reveals the immense influence the big business lobby has over both political parties. It also explains why this special interest group has declared war on the Tea Party. Big business political influence boils down to financial support for any politician who is willing to bestow huge benefits on certain companies. The Export-Import Bank is a prime example. The Export-Import Bank boosts sales of U.S. multinational corporations by providing government-backed loans, loan guarantees and other credit mechanisms to countries and international companies around the world. The bank is a...

    The Huffington Post is beside itself with indignant rage over companies moving their headquarters overseas to avoid paying the highest corporate income tax in the industrialized world. Feeling that Secretary Jack Lew was onto something when he accused companies of being economic traitors for reducing their tax burden, the HuffPo let loose a string of economic illiterate ramblings about the indecency of corporate profits.Early last week, the drug firm Mylan stomped on the Stars and Stripes as it ditched America for the Netherlands. Then, on Friday, the drug company AbbVie similarly renounced America. For 30 pieces of silver, it will...
