If Mitt Romney is right and corporations are in fact people my friend, then they are definitely the kind you don’t want showing up at your parties.

The highest court in Texas decided that a company can legally lie to its employees if the bosses think the employees might bolt if they knew they were about to get screwed. Allow me to explain as you shake your head in…

Chris Pratt worked with Marvel and Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to arrange a special screening of Guardians of the Galaxy for patients, families and staff at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Wednesday. While the movie played, Pratt snuck out and dressed up as his character, Star-Lord. >He spent more than three hours in full costume and handed out movie-themed toys. Pratt also visited patients in the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit, the Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases, and the Pediatric ICU, as they were too sick to join the movie screening that afternoon.

Pratt spent extra time with one patient, Dylan Prunty, who is a longtime Lego fan and recognized the actor’s voice from The Lego Movie. They spent about 10 minutes reciting different scenes from the film.

Chris Pratt is a perfect human being and I refuse to hear otherwise.

Here, the nun tells two stories.
1. She highlights a person working full-time who can’t afford to rent housing.
2. She discusses an entreprenuer who pays a living wage while competitors pay below living wage and have employees that use the social safety net. She goes on to say that the entreprenuer’s taxes are effectively subsidizing his competitors’ low wages.

Capitalist Response:
1. Why think about only the demand side of the equation? Overregulation makes basic necessities like housing and food more expensive.
2. The nun is making the assumption that both the entrepreneur and his competitors have equally skilled labor. In the long-run, an employer paying $13 /hour will attract better talent than one paying $7 /hour. We need more information to truly understand this situation.

Always shoot down the ones doing it right.  

"Overegulation" does not make basic necessities more expensive. Regulation keeps houses from falling down and food from being riddled with disease. What makes things expensive is capitalists making an obscene profit from basic necessities.

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

A conservative commentator and occasional political candidate said the ongoing unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, demonstrated that President Barack Obama had revived racism.

“It’s like we’re reliving the 1960s with Barack Obama,” said Wayne Allyn Root during a radio appearance Wednesday. “He didn’t come in to help us end the specter of racism, he brought it back, folks.”

This idiot is voting in November.

A real “deep-thinker”, this one…
