    Watched a program called "Great Planes" on the Smithsonian Channel. It was about the Doanld's Boeing 757 they call the "T-Bird". The program does describe the plane but more importantly it shows you a great deal about the man who owns it. It shows his attention to detail, his drive and I think maybe most of all, the way his employees and those who do work for him respect him. I recommend it as a good way to get to know the 'other side' of The Donald'. It could change your vote.
  • Dear Lee Siegel: Why I Defaulted on Your Paycheck, Sincerely, The Boss

    Humorist Lee Siegel wrote in The New York Times that he unashamedly and without remorse defaulted on his student loans. Am I a deadbeat? In the eyes of the law I am. Indifferent to the claim that repaying student loans is the road to character? Yes. Blind to the reality of countless numbers of people struggling to repay their debts, no matter their circumstances, many worse than mine? My heart goes out to them. To my mind, they have learned to live with a social arrangement that is legal, but not moral. Congratulations, Mr. Siegel.  You have figured out liberty....
  • February 24, 2014: The RINO Says: Boehner’s my boss, not the voters

    01/06/2015 2:37:01 PM PST · by ObamahatesPACoal · 48 replies
    Rep. Renee Ellmers (RINO-NC) was elected to the House during the 2010 Tea Party surge. However, Ellmers has proven not to be conservative at all. She advocated raising the debt ceiling in 2010, while attacking other freshman members of Congress who would not agree to do the same, and in 2012 she openly admitted that Boehner was her boss and therefore did not want to cause problems with him.

    If you were wondering why incumbent Republican Renee Ellmers decided to debate Democrat challenger Clay Aiken, this news might give you a hint. The Civitas survey was conducted Sept. 26-28 among 400 registered voters. It had a margin of error of +-5 percent. Ellmers’s favorable / unfavorable rating was at 25/28 while Aiken’s sat at 25/35. Forty-seven percent of the registered voters said they were either neutral, or had no opinion, on the two-term congresswoman.

    Business Insider ^ | 07/15/2014 | GEOFFREY JAMES
    The boss/employee relationship has an inherent inequality of power, and since knowledge is power, most bosses will want to keep some knowledge to themselves and away from employees. Doing so often involves telling the following lies: 1. “We can't pay you more.” If a company has any cash flow whatsoever, the boss is making decisions about where to spend based on what the boss feels is a priority. Your salary isn’t the priority, so can’t really means won’t. Since your compensation always reflects the minimum your boss believes you’ll accept, when you hear this lie, it’s a signal that you...

    It’s really frustrating when Republican candidates say really dumb things that allow Democrats to come out sounding down-right sensible. Case in point: Rockingham County prosecutor Phil Berger, Jr., who is locked in a runoff fight with Greensboro pastor Mark Walker for the GOP nomination for North Carolina’s Sixth Congressional District. Berger recently gave Laura Fjeld, a former UNC system employee and the district’s Democrat nominee, a chance to score some points: (SNIP) “We are going to put ourselves in the position to represent the people of the sixth district most effectively.

    Warning: Your Nice Boss May Be Killing Your Career September 04, 2013 Chris spent years working for a supportive, encouraging manager at a major technology company.

His manager had been in the company for 20 years. He had learned how to survive in the bureaucracy: don’t make...

    Furious that one of his staff had stolen hundreds of pounds from his business, Simon Cremer hung a sign saying ‘thief’ around the man’s neck and frogmarched him to a police station. But while the employee, Mark Gilbert, was let off with a police caution, Mr Cremer spent three months facing a charge of false imprisonment until the case was dropped. Now, in a further blow, the businessman has paid his former employee £5,000 compensation and covered his £6,000 legal fees in an out-of-court settlement to avoid a hugely expensive civil case for the ‘humiliation’ he suffered. Together with his...

    A bullied office worker has been awarded £5,000 after her boss raised his right buttock from his chair and broke wind in her direction. Humiliated mother-of-three Theresa Bailey, 43, was the only woman on a sales team where "laddish" behaviour made her life a misery, and continued despite complains to senior managers.

    So you think your boss is inept, arrogant or just plain lazy? You're not alone. A recent Gallup Poll found that a bad relationship with the boss was the No. 1 reason people gave for leaving their jobs. But if you want to keep moving up the corporate rungs, you better make nice. Having an antagonistic relationship with your supervisor is a career killer, says Cynthia Shapiro, author of the book "Corporate Confidential." "No matter how skilled you are, if you don't have a good relationship with your boss, your job is not secure," warns Shapiro... ...So how can you...

    BOGOTA, Colombia - Authorities captured a fugitive right-wing warlord Tuesday accused in massacres and of running a murderous criminal band involved in drug trafficking and extortion, officials said.

Better known by his alias "Hernan Hernandez," Veloza once commanded the Banana and Calima blocs of the United Self-Defense Forces, known by its Spanish initials as AUC. The two blocs are blamed for hundreds of murders of human...

    Sworn in just over two weeks ago as the first female speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi wasted no time showing who's boss. The California Democrat rammed six major bills through the House at breakneck speed, stomped out smoking privileges near the House floor, partially sidelined a powerful Democratic committee chairman and decided she liked traditionally Republican office space so much she claimed it for herself. By Democrats' timekeeping, she did it all in far under the 100 legislative hours she had allotted. "We did what we promised the American people we would," Pelosi declared on Friday, pledging it was...

    They still call them presidents. DeVry University recently changed head honchos. The old president, John Skubiak, 56, stepped down and a new president, David Pauline, 49, was appointed to succeed him. Honcho, by the way, is a Japanese word. Each neighborhood is divided into small sub-units or groups of residents. On a rotating basis, people are appointed to collect community funds, organize community events, and such. These people are called the honcho. DeVry presidents do much more than preside over small community events, to be sure. But, they are not called CEOs-- even at fopros. DeVry is one of the...
