infidel81..I agree, I used to belong to a local Teamster Union and got out as fast as I could,Read More because I experienced exactly what you stated. I witnessed people only doing exactly what was needed and nothing more, then complain about it. Unions are NO place for people who wish to advance themselves, and perhaps work their way up to be a possible CEO. This has become a societal plague, with some people believing they are due something for doing nothing, which is ridiculous. I find it amusing with the news that the middle class in Canada is richer than those in the US. For all the crap Americans give Canadians, look how well they are doing. Who's laughing now.

This is getting depressing. We are starting to agree with each other. LOL. I too was in a UnionRead More There was no recourse. It wasn't a close job, but you either joined or agency shop (which was $5.00 less a month). It wasn't when I first started at the company. After being there 10 years I didn't have much of a choice. With family leave now the attendance is so bad, but the union protects them. The beaters get just as much as the honest workers.
Concerned Parent April 23, 2014 at 12:24 pm
Igor..Where I worked was an open shop, but got nagged daily for a month to join the union and afterRead More a month I did, just to shut them up. Money coming out of each check and didn't know exactly what was happening with it. I guess some people find that acceptable, but I didn't and got out. Best decision I ever made in my life.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Hey Reyn, you write a lot but say nothing then follow up with some insult or name calling, typicalRead More liberal B.S.

Well Larry, I read your blog and have some mixed feelings on the subject. First, the human body isRead More not intended to be a herbivore (you can start by looking at your teeth which are intended to rip and eat meat). Having said that, I'm not sure the crap they sell in stores these days would constitute as "meat" and the slop they sell at fast food places is even worse. Your blogs references to your grandparents and parents ways to obtain meat is the school I come from. We eat a lot of venison and the chicken, pork and beef we eat are all farm raised and butchered by myself. I do all my own cutting and packaging as well as the processing. Yes, I do make my own hotdogs and other processed meats.

It's amazing how one obscure thread about free coffee brings out so many opposing views onRead More everything but coffee..... Don't you people have lives? It's free coffee people not "Cosmos". Maybe you folks are drinking too much coffee..... or something!!

They are laying off massively in Maryland. Why in the world would they come to the highest taxedRead More state is what I can't figure out. Then again probably some quid pro quo behind the scenes between the 2 idiot Gov's.
Jen DellaCamera March 30, 2014 at 08:37 pm
They laid off hundreds in CT as well - to go to Maryland! Someone I know was laid off recently -Read More except it wasn't a layoff, they offered him a job - it was a DEMOTION in Maryland. Way to go, Verizon. Glad my phone is AT&T.

@Joe Mancini - What the heck are you talking about? Duchess sells Alcohol? Salads cause LiverRead More disease? McDonalds coffee causes impaired driving? So alcohol is good for the liver and kidneys? Please put down the shot and beer it is STILL illegal to drink and drive. I don't think its illegal to eat an apple pie from McDonalds. Never mind high, your plastered, put down the beer tap, sober up, realize your addiction and enjoy a glass of water for a change. You may need some detox before you stop cold turkey, you can die if you don't ween off it if you drink alcohol daily for a long period of time. Breweries are NOT THE ANSWER.
Joe Mancini April 16, 2014 at 05:36 pm
@OpportunistWatch-Thanks for the laugh. Yes, people go to McDonalds for the salads like men go toRead More strip clubs for the free buffet. The "food" McDonalds serves is so loaded with chemicals that have to be metabolized through the liver and filtered by the Kidneys, this leads to disease as well as diabetes. But you continue on your crusade against people enjoying a brew every now and then and go eat your salad at McDonalds.
Arek Wenta April 16, 2014 at 10:04 pm
Yeah the buffets are great! Not to mention the obscene amount of salt in their foods which isRead More contributing greatly to a slew of health problems. And beer in moderation is actually good for you. In more ways than one. Since when are motor vehicle deaths an inevitable outcome of a brewery? Just because they make it doesn't mean you have to drink it. Cars don't go kill people on their own, they need someone with a good dose of idiot to do it for them. Which you, opportunist, have plenty of. Plus, with the rate at which craft breweries are growing it's an excellent venture to pursue and boost our economy.
