    That's complete crap for many, many employers, now. A lot of employers, especially those on the low end where the minimum wage and unskilled labor jobs are, require a cell phone. You MIGHT be able to file an application in person (many companies put a terminal in their lobby) but if the cell phone number isn't filled in the application goes to File 13.

    I have considered Bush Sr. to be a very good recent President, and Lincoln as great as far as early.

    well given the top 5% pay more taxes than the rest of the country, that's rather silly

    Really? Because I've applied for many jobs and not one required a cell phone. For the past two years, I've gotten hired over email.

    Not at all. There's a whole slew of crap most people in the middle class could care less about. You can start with most of the crap you dislike - because most middle class people aren't so hot about YOUR VERSION (not the real one) of the welfare state and many other things government does. Then you can add in - on top of all your objections - the huge military complex, the corporate protections, most foreign wars, and so on. So, yes, it wouldn't be too hard to get there at all.

    We've been through this before, TD, and I'm not going through it again. I've laid out the basics only as a reminder to you of our past discussions.

    And who did you beg for computer time?

    Things sure changed a lot on the last two years, then. I went looking for quite awhile in late 08-early 09 and a good 20% required a cell phone number. Almost all applications were required to be electronic - though as I mentioned earlier - many companies provided a terminal in their lobby.
