    So I go in for an interview, everything is going good. It was for an IT help desk in an office. The interviewer asks me a lot of questions, and asks do you smoke? I said yes. She immediately says, I can't give you the job then. This is in Oregon. I looked up laws and there is a statute where companies cannot use smoking as a consideration when hiring, they can only ban smoking at work. Any advice would be great. Thanks! Ooops, almost forgot. Long time Lurker, looking to meet some new FRiends.
  • Congress Must Do Its Duty and ZOT "gun control"

    01/16/2013 4:28:00 AM PST · by obsnob · 77 replies
    “Don’t let the lobbyists win” should be the rallying call of Barack Obama to congress when he unveils wide-ranging measures aimed at curbing gun violence. Following the shooting of 27 people, including 12 children, at a school in Newton Connecticut at the end of last year, the gun debate has been at the top of most people’s discussion list and congress has to seriously consider the measures Obama is set to propose – similar to those passed in New York on Tuesday. In addressing these measures, congress cannot let powerful lobbying groups such as the NRA sway them with various...

I stopped when I heard the sound of Wayne LaPierre's voice as he gave his speech about the Newtown massacre. I was surprised my son, who is just 14, was getting involved in anything political, but I was glad he was exposing himself to the right people. I opened the door, intending to tell him how proud I was, when the image on the screen stopped me cold....

    I am against ObamaCare, due mainly to it's uninvited intrusiveness into the well being of every American presently born, and then some. At the same time, I will say there are instances when it is appropriate to take and utilize government services, especially when one has been an employee of the government at some time in their life. That said, I am so glad to have health insurance through the govt. I served in the Navy back in the Carter/Reagan years. I began on a wooden (yes, wooden!)

  • Best Website for Political Discussion:

    11/30/2012 9:01:14 AM PST · by Vinylly · 54 replies
    Well, yesterday I discussed a liberal website called Outside Asylum, and my experience with it. For me, the best websites for political discussion are neither conservative or liberal, but unbiased. There's nothing more boring then talking to like minded people, but a website that can have a dialog between opposing minds without resorting to name calling. I found a huge website that everybody should know about, it covers everything from your hometown and state, science, religion and politics. As long as you follow their rules, you can have a good entertaining discussion. I use a different monikar there, but it's...

    Hi everyone-- I'm a longtime lurker of FR and just signed up to get your feedback about a question I am sure many of us are asking ourselves. As a lifelong conservative, I am concerned about the possibility (probability?) of Mitt Romney receiving the GOP nomination for president next year. Many of my friends are convinced Romney will win the nomination, but I am very concerned that if he were to get into office, he would not stand up for the conservative policies we desperately need after the past four years. I want Obama out of office more than anything,...
  • Zotted Poster and Tea Party founder (ha ha) (Karl Denninger) backs Occupy Wall Street

    10/14/2011 3:17:45 PM PDT · by Beckett08 · 114 replies
    Karl Denninger was one of the founders of the Tea Party back just a few years ago when some concerned conservatives wanted to fire back at the government for what they said was unjust practices. Today, similar sentiments are being echoed by the Occupy Wall Street movement. Is it right to make comparisons between the two groups? Denninger says that, yes, to some degree the comparisons are indeed accurate. The Occupy movement, however, can learn from some of the mistakes that he says the Tea Party succumbed to. “The problem with protests and the political process is that it is...
  • School Textbook Promotes Propaganda Intended to Rally Up the 18-25 Year-Old Vote for Obama in 2012.

    08/25/2011 11:47:47 AM PDT · by tablechomper · 18 replies
    I just started as a student in a college course called American Government. The textbook is extremely slanted and this version was obviously updated after the mid-term elections in order to rouse up the young vote for Obama in 2012. The target audience of this textbook is 18-25 years-olds (the main age bracket of college students who would be taking an introductory/transfer political course), and for many of them this may be their first exposure to current events in politics. The following excerpt is one example of how the textbook portrays the unappreciative, angry tea party and the extremely productive...

    US News ^ | 8/18/11 | Kenneth T. Walsh
    Perry's announcement speech got positive coverage, but the media's approach has been growing increasingly negative. Perry has been very visible, voluble, and controversial, and the media have been portraying him as something verging on a loose cannon. One example was his response to a question about whether President Obama loves his country. Perry said the questioner would have to ask Obama--which left the impression that Perry has doubts about the president's patriotism. Another example came yesterday, when Perry called global warming "a scientific theory that has not been proven and from my perspective is more and more being put into...

Don't know what was worse her attitude or the hickie?

The Republican governor recently addressed a crowd of 1,800 members of the National Council of La Raza, which calls itself the largest Hispanic civil rights organization in the United States. Critics, however, point out that La Raza means "The Race," and claim the organization is nothing more than a Hispanic supremacist organization. One of...

    JERUSALEM – Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu is endorsing the Mexicans’ demand for a future state of Aztlan based on the borders that existed before the 1847 Mexican War, in a move that will likely infuriate America. The U.S. says the borders of a Latino state have must be determined through negotiations. In a speech outlining Israeli policy in Meso- and North America, Netanyahu on Thursday sided with the Mexicans’ opening position a day ahead of a visit to Washington. U.S. residents are vehemently opposed to returning to the 1847 borders. The battle of borders in the Middle Southwest is...

    By congressional action, seniors lean upon younger workers to keep their perceived ‘entitled’ pension benefits coming. This 'backward lean' is the very 'ponziness' of the debacle because the youngest group has no one to lean upon, hence they will be defrauded. The crucial problem is that our government has enacted socialistic and immoral institutions into law such as Social Security and Medicare, which are cloaked in many high-moral sounding themes. But if you are a great grandchild (or later) of the 1930's New Deal era, you will grievously and forever be a dining table server at the Ponzi Scheme Banquet...

    Deep in the hearts and minds of the liberal media and the left lie an unspoken truth: both know that Sarah Palin’s so-called “crosshair map” nor the “vitriol rhetoric on the radio and television” (and by that they mean the rhetoric emanating from conservative radio and Fox News) in any way contributed to Saturday’s massacre in Tucson. Thus, their repeated attempts to link the two is no more than a cynical, politically motivated exercise meant to marginalize popular conservative voices and halt the growing and, as evidenced by the mid-term elections, politically powerful Tea Party movement. However, their ultimate goal...
