    Why? It just makes them pee more, so it kind of evens out in the end.

    People are going to drink something in the morning to hydrate anyway, so they're going to whiz regardless.

    So let me get this straight:

    With all the **** going on in the world, what makes you mad is people demanding coffee and casual Fridays? You guys must live charmed lives. I can see it now... "OHHHH THE HUMANITY THEY ARE FORCED TO GIVE OUT FREE COFFEE NOW!"
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

    Yes ma'am.

    And I have no problem with the government treating a troupe of teachers/children and showing them some of the marvels of modern American science.

    Go through my relatively short posting history and find where I use one poll to support any position I take.

    Oh, there are none?

    Odd, huh?

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Of course it happens. What does that matter? Because it does happen on both sides it makes it right? ???

    Comrade, you are so wrong.

    You don't get it do you? Business, and for that matter GOVERNMENT.... do not exist to give people kooshy jobs with great benefits. They exist to provide profit to the people who have a vested interest in the company. Or to the PEOPLE.

    Least it's supposed to work that way, but sadly we've got a large number of folks that think business are greedy horrible institutions that should be forced to pay workers huge salaries and great benefits because it's unfair the investors and upper management are rich (that's what class warfare does, makes people stupid) and when it comes to public sector jobs that the Government should be a high pay/benefit job creator.

    It's not acidic, it's REALITY.

    Why is that so hard for people to accept? Let's say you own Tashah's Manufacturing. Now, you had to get money to start this Co. Those people are called investor's. They now have entrusted you with their money not out of CHARITY but because they expect a profit. If you don't provide that, they'll cut their losses and you'll go out of business.

    So, ten years go by, you've grown into a big company with multiple factories in many places. Life is good! But there is some economic turmoil, maybe a big contract you had went under, you got out bid for another. Profits are falling, investors are getting worried, the board fears big losses...

    You are faced with laying off 10% of your workforce maybe closing a plant...

    Or losing the company.

    Now, who is expendable? The workers. Welcome to reality Tashah. I'm not cold hearted, I just don't DENY THE TRUTH.
