    I just wish they would ask for identification from these so-called strikers/demonstrators. I'll bet at least half of them are union shills. Major unions cannot stand it that many food/retail stores aren't unionized. This is one salvo of many they'll continue firing until, they hope, they win.

    This should be quite a dilemma for snobby liberals - do they support the working poor, after all, they claim to be the only ones on their side, or do they support entitlement to their overpriced lifestyle needs?

    There's no question what liberals will support here. There is no such thing as a pro-business liberal. They'll say they are, but they're full of it.

    No snow here after yesterday, but cold as the proverbial well digger's ass.

    The colder it is, the longer the dog takes to find an acceptable potty spot - I think she does it for spite!

    I dunno - if some liberal diva decides she needs some Spicy Wine Mustard for her turkey sandwich later tomorrow, those damn peons better open up and let her in or there's gonna be hell to pay.

    It was understood that I was "on call," and I had a few Thanksgivings when my family ate, while my dinner got cold and the gravy congealed! You have to handle the emergencies that come up, and all of my department knew it was a possibility. I guess that the old saying "coincidences are the universe's way of being ornery" is true!

    Just curious if some of the same people who hate on Thanksgiving as being a holiday of "genocide" are also on the bandwagon of hate for people being "forced" to work.
