  • What Just Happened at Market Basket This Weekend?

    07/21/2014 4:46:12 PM PDT · 9 of 37
    wizwor to AntiScumbag

    I’d just like to explain this a little. I have some perspective as I worked for Demoulas when I was in high school and have shopped there since.

    My first job was with Shop’n’Save. Shop’n’save was a savvy food store with sharp managers and a transient work force. They hired college kids to manage their stores and high school kids to run their stores.

    My second job was at the Demoulas store in Seabrook New Hampshire. It was night and day. The manager was an old man named Vincent Clancy. All the managers were people who had started as baggers. That’s how it worked. If you were good at sacking groceries, you got to stock shelves. If you were good at stocking shelves, they made you a ‘full timer’ when you graduated — more money, more hours, and full benefits. I run into kids I sacked with all the time. They are not managers of Market Basket stores.

    So this guy Arthur T. Demoulas built a business that was so successful that anyone who wanted to work hard could be a store manager and stock holders could make millions while consumers got the best deals in town from very happy employees.

    My family will stay away from Market Basket until ATD returns. It saddens me to see this characterized in political terms. This is not a political issue. These workers are not unionized. They are not part of some Occupy movement, and they are supporting a major 1%’er.

    What we are seeing here is management, employees, and consumers outraged that a business model that has benefited each is threatened by disengaged stock traders. Stock traders who have been gutting the US economy for decades in the name of dividends. We are all outraged because we see this in our jobs and fear for our children’s future.

    Arthur T. Demoulas is a rare CEO who has enriched his shareholders while sharing that success with his employees and providing great value to the community. Everyone should support him because we all want to work for that kind of company.

    Unemployment ‘benefits’ are insurance which is purchased to protect an employee in the case of job loss. If eligibility is contingent upon some condition, the test should come at application not redemption. Imagine paying for home owners insurance for decades only to learn that you are ineligible to collect after your house burns down — for a reason that was not disclosed until after your home burned.

    Furthermore, ineligible employees should be paid/reimbursed the cost of insurance. I’m sure there are plenty of private insurers who will provide coverage.

    I find it completely ironic that employees are penalized for recreational drug abuse while welfare beneficiaries are not tested for drug abuse. The former has at least contributed to our GDP.

    In a society that decriminalizes, legalizes, and subsidizes drug abuse, it is immoral to deny someone unemployment benefits based on a test conducted at the time of benefit payment. No private firm could conduct a scam like this.

  • Deceit in the Boy Scouts

    05/18/2013 5:29:24 AM PDT · 9 of 50
    wizwor to rhema

    The problem is that BSA is letting its enemies frame the debate. The question is not whether BSA should let homosexuals in or place them in leadership positions — they always have. The question is whether the BSA should make an official statement or policy on this. The answer is no. The Boy Scouts are not a sexual proposition. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is a perfectly acceptable policy. It’s perfectly OK to regulate affection and discussion within a private organization. The Boy Scouts do not prohibit homosexual sex among minor scouts — they prohibit sex among minor scouts. The scouts do not prohibit explicit demonstrations of affections among gay scouts, they prohibit explicit demonstrations of affection. When discussion turns vulgar, it is stopped whether that discussion is homosexual or not. This is no different than prohibiting alcohol, drugs, weapons, pornography,. or any other behavior that is not consistent with scout law.
    So, BSA, take this off the table. Our organization is not about sex. Let the schools and media obsess over this. We have other things to teach our kids.

    I’m not sure this is a good issue for Dems. For starters, most beneficiaries (Big Education and those buried in debt) are already in their camp. Second, whatever relief that could be given would not satisfy the relieved. No one is going to say, forget about your debt. Relief will come in maximum payments as a percentage of income. Finally, the government is not going to pay for this. The money is going to come from banks and Big Education with targeted forgiveness for those who will serve (military, Obamacare).

  • Quinnipiac Poll: Majority of voters back gay Boy Scouts

    wizwor to SeekAndFind

    What the majority of voters want is of no consequence in this matter. The Boy Scouts are a private association and the Constitution guarantees Freedom of Association. In other words, Boy Scouts have a constitutional right to associate with whomever they choose.

    The Boy Scouts are an organization of values and principles. Each scout promises to do his best to live his life a certain way. People who do not try to live in accordance with the Scout Law should not promise to try to do so. People who choose not to promise to try should not be scouts.

    This isn’t about homosexual Boy Scouts. There are and always have been gay scouts. This is about impressing unwelcome values on a private organization. This is about pulling children into an adult political morass. That is shameful.

    Let me say that again: the adults who are using children to advance a political agenda are shameful. The cowards who allow this are just as shameful.

    The Boy Scouts is not sexual at all. BSA goes to great pains to make it that way. Adults are not allowed to be alone with scouts. Scouts are required to travel in pairs. Girls do not tent with boys. It’s not Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell — it’s Don’t Care. These kids learn about teamwork, self sufficiency, survival, and the great outdoors.

    Leave these kids alone. Get some counseling. COEXIST.

    None of this is about tolerating homosexuals in the Boy Scouts. There are, and have been, gays in the scouts since I was a kid and there are gays in the scouts today.

    I sent this to the BSA this weekend...

    We had our Klondike Derby this weekend and I was around a lot of adult scout leaders. Not surprisingly, the gay ban was on most people’s minds. I can tell you that there were THREE very vocal proponents — two of which were our scout master and assistant scout master. Many parents were unhappy with this strong support but felt that voicing such concerns would stigmatize them.

    Personally, I am disappointed that an organization built on a strong value system has put find raising above those values. I think you are doing this all wrong.

    First, stop talking about this. Do not respond to questions and do not make statements. Second, instead of chasing the wavering supporters, promote the solid supporters. Include a list of scout friendly merchants as part of your parent communications and encourage scout families to support these friends of scouting. Scouting families buy a lot and should be seen as something to be wooed.

    I’m concerned that the BSA is the next JCP. Penny changed their values to woo an attractive demographic. The attractive demographic would never patronize JC Penny, so few new customers were gained. The wooing process chased away a lot of customers who were offended by the changes and JCP now has no customers.

    Just last fall senate and presidential candidates lost elections after campaigns distancing themselves from values voters — democrat voters didn’t believe them and republicans did.

    The BSA is (was) an organization based on values. It’s OK if people who do not like those values do not support us. It’s not ok if the people who like those values do not support us.

    Step away from the ledge, guys. There will be fraud, but the cheats will not like post about it on the internet.

    There’s no such thing as anonymity. This person will be visited by the FBI really soon. Penalties for election fraud are serious. If this person is simply trying to raise the profile of fraud, I’m afraid they will be sorry for that too.

    The people who commit fraud do not advertise that they do it. It would be easy to virtually eliminate fraud and most people are opposed to fraud. The cheaters only chance to sustain their ‘system’ is to convince us that fraud does not exist or barely exists.

    Election fraud is not easy. You have to at least register at each location. Even if it is same day registration, this takes time. It’s much easier to tweet that you did — whether it is to draw attention to one’s self or voter fraud.

    The real fraud is coming in the back door via election officials stuffing or losing ballot boxes and the front door via absentee ballots.

    The purpose of early voting is not multiple votes. Early voting allows activists to locate every single voter who can be convinced to vote for their candidate and get them to a voting location.

    I once had a history teacher who did this. She called every registered voter in the area and pretended to be a surveyer. At the end of the interview, she asked about liklihood to vote. If the voter seemed likely to vote for her candidate, she offered to provide transportation, got the person’s address, and showed up at the front door. The only thing that limited her efforts, was time. Early voting gives her more time.

    When I was in college, an economics instructor shared an anecdote about how Johnny Carson disrupted the paper industry. In 1973, Johhny joked about a toilet paper shortage. This was reported as news and people reacted by ‘stocking up’ on tissue. This cleared store shelves and warehouses which caused a bump in demand for paper and overtime for paper workers who scrambled to replenish the shelves. Once the shelves were full, an extended lack of demand from those who stocked up led to layoffs.

    I don’t know how true all that is, but the fact that he told the joke, at least, is documented in Great Moments in Toilet Paper History (http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/WolfFiles/story?id=91684&page=3).

    First, let’s acknowledge that people who do not pay income taxes, pay taxes. Until this is accepted, there can be no discussion. Now, you can say that people who pay taxes of any kind are entitled to vote and that changes nothing. The real problem is that some do not like the fact that people who do not pay income taxes are allowed to vote. I understand that people feel that these people are insensitive to the burden placed on those who do, but the solution is to make these people stake holders not to disenfranchise them. To that end, the best answer is to not rely on payroll taxes to fund government spending. I’m a huge fan of consumption taxes. These decrease landfills and increase services as the cost of fixing something goes down as the cost of replacing it goes up.

    Deflation, supply and demand, FEAR. It’s difficult to say why, but people are being more frugal. This will not change until consumers feel like their jobs are safe. I don’t see that happening any time soon.

    For those with money in the bank and/or a recession proof job, this is a great time to ensure future comfort.

    The feds are going to hand banks $40b a month to prime the pump, BUT the banks do not want to take on risky loans, so there will be little demand for this new, boundless supply of greenbacks. This could push mortgage rates to historic lows for people who do have jobs and/or are not upside down on their mortgages.

    Looks like Ben is going to help the rich get richer.

    Clearly, some of us evolved from apes. It’s less clear that they prefer Dr. Pepper. I don’t know enough Dr. Pepper drinkers to tackle that question.

    When Obama ran for office he talked about a civilian police force as strong as the military. Since then, the government has been buying and misplacing military grade weapons and ammunition. My concern is that his brown shirts are arming for a domestic action — an unfortunate electoral outcome or term limits.

    I vote landslide.

    I live in southern New Hampshire — where the Massachusetts tax refugees settle. Today I had a mattress and foundation delivered. The guys unloaded behind my car and noticed my array of bumper stickers (Sarah, Romney/Ryan, Teach 180 Days, and Miss Me Yet? This led to an extended conversation about how awful Obama is.

    We just had a primary Tuesday that included a race for governor. Democrat John Lynch is not running for re-election, so there were three candidates in each party. Political signs litter our roads like confetti. 56% of voters cast their vote for a republican candidate. I don’t know if this is an indication of lack of party enthusiasm or the fact that New Hampshire required voters to produce a valid ID, but either way it bodes well for my ‘purple’ state.

    To the south of me, Scott Brown is successfully defending his right to sit in Ted Kennedy’s seat.
