    I don't consider the voice of the government in such matters justified.
    We are the government. And laws concerning fairness have always been part of the law.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    My heart doesn't bleed for those that want to prejudice over qualifications.

    No, the body that rules over the citizens is the government. Are you part of that body?

    You already know how I feel about the last part.

    Yes, you did, but anyway..

    There IS certain things that are illegal to be used for reasons for firing someone. This keeps plenty of people around that otherwise would not be.

    1.) nope, never did, if you disagree please prove it
    2.) yep this is true yet the firing process isnt stopped, or one could be honest and say there are rights that are stopped from being violated.

    Well yes, its not stopped, but it is essentially stopped since it leaves people not desirable still employed and on others property. Doing so will only make their situations worse since business owners have a tendency to make their life miserable.

    You are the one that needs to get of a damn horse.

    ****ing moronic.

    Back to our regularly scheduled debate...
    Don't need to see EVERY post you have made with whatever name you are using this time. DO know if you could remember a recent decrying some right wing radical for his blanket statement you would have referenced it. Now don't confuse my newbie status here with newbie to the world and how it works. Don't confuse your being here a longer time as somehow 'smarter' or 'fairer'.

    it isn't that you don't go through the forum on a mission, it is just you only see blanket statements about the radical right as worthy of umbrage.

    FYI the poster didn't say, "every damn radical right wingnutt thinks this way" so it wasn't so much a blanket as a throw...
