    Really? A 19-year-old should have saved money their whole life in case they had an accident? I don't think 3 years of flipping burgers or running a cash register part-time is going to pay a $100,000 hospital bill.

    And how, pray tell, does a 19-year-old working part time at Wal-Mart or McDonald's or Blockbuster afford that?

    I wouldnt say that around your friends or co-workers. That statement makes you look like you have the understanding of my friends 12 year old. Im not kidding. I joke around a LOT on this forum but you really dont know how things work in the real world. I can point to many examples on a personal level to teach you. But Im guessing you wont listen because you just dont WANT to know how wrong you are.
    People LOSE money Chickie. The stock market..... health problems.... lay offs.... divorce.... a combination of those things.

    I have to ask... who or how did you EVER think "failing to prepare= preparing to fail. It really is that simple"

    and yes... you DID call people 'losers'.

    OK..... people can pay bills, NOT buy "crap" and still have VERY little money left over.

    Look Chickie, I was once like you. ULTRA Republican... I campaigned & voted for Bush 41 AND 43. I used to say the same things as you. So when Im talking to you Im talking to me 4 or 5 years ago. I was blind. I kept myself insulated in Hannity and Limbaugh and my well-to-do friends (not family though) and went to MANY republican conventions in DuPage County in Illinois. I used to call Democrats, DEMONcrats and CNN the Clinton News Network and moderates and democrats were unentitled scum that were ghetto pieces of **** that didnt want to learn. Or were just to damn stupid. They were the enemy! And I couldnt even begin to understand how anyone can be so utterly frakin' stupid as to screw up their credit. I thought exactly like you in this regard.
    Then... guess what? I started to see peoples worlds collapse. (long story and I wont get into it) but..... basically I grew up with money. I went to the finest schools. I had decent jobs and saved up.
    Then many things started going wrong. Did you know the bank charges $35 for a negative balance in your account even though they admit that your online balance wasnt updated at the time?

Do you think that employers should be allowed to require you to turn over all your personal emails to them for the past two years? Do you think that an employer should be allowed to require you to suck their dick? As long as you're "consenting" to their precondition for employment, it's all well and good, right?
    Yes to all of the above, as long as you consent. I see no "strongarming". I see someone applying for a job, and a the employer giving conditions to apply. The applicant can easily choose not to abide by the requirements - no strongarming, just a simple 'no'. I really fail to see the big deal.

    Yup. I have no issues with that either. But you do realize you're speaking to a former prostitute, right?

    If I want the job bad enough, I'll do whatever the **** they ask me to do. If I don't, then I won't do what they ask me to do. It's quite simple, really, and I'm not sure where the opposition stems from. It's all about personal choice. Why shouldn't I be allowed to blow my way to the top if I can? /shrug

    I think that documentation makes sense for your industry Rev as I presume you guys work with sensitive stuff.

    Everything from HIPA to corporate secrets. Security is what we do, and it is imperative we know who we are hiring.
