I don't understand the use of the term "African-American." I understand your (& theRead More police departments') desire to use a shorthand description of his appearance, but use of this term implies that the person is of African ethnic origin but an American citizen. How do we know his citizenship? What if he is African from Senegal? Or African-Canadian? Or African-French? Or Half-African/Half Japanese? What's wrong with the shorthand term "black" - as used by all my "African-American" friends and relatives? Are you afraid of non-political-correctness?

Laying off employees has the affect of reducing operational costs and increasing business profits.Read More Businesses are ALWAYS considering methods to slash costs to maximize profits - whether you're making injectable toxins or cupcakes. Otherwise they would be called "charities". It's not nice, but anyone thinking business is "fun", "fulfilling" or "nice", needs to return to reality. Moves like this have nothing to do with morality and never did. It's a damn good thing that businesses adjust their structure because otherwise we'd have companies employing lots of people for the purpose of giving them gainful livelihood. Lastly, there's probably more to the story here than what we read. LF Patch latches on to the layoffs in the headline, but what if the hostile takeover company already has employees in the required roles and doesn't need any more to run the business optimally? What are they supposed to do? Employ and pay 2 persons when 1 will do just fine? This is an inefficient use of resources, and undermines the employee's opportunity to apply their talents to market demand. The only constant in life is change.

JAMES COBAR SAID James Cobar July 22, 2014 at 08:57 AM Obama Touts Expansion Of Program ForRead More Minority Boys AP | By JESSE J. HOLLAND *************************************** It is this kind of preferential treatment that sparked the White power movement during the Reagan years and thus we should not allow this special treatment! What about the concept of MERIT even if it's true that MERIT is controlled by the dominant culture? No! No! No more preferential treatment for people of color since we are now a "color blind" society and America now has "equal access" for everyone that includes jobs, housing,lending,education and health care!" END JAMES QUOTE _____________________________________________________ What?.... lets see... a program to help minority boys sparked "white power in the eighties"??? James, can you show me where your cause and effect statement was put in action? Can you explain a "rise of white power"? Then as you go on, you seem to be sarcastic, making a caricature of people opposed to affirmative action. Is that true, or are you just confused, and playing both sides of your rant without knowing? Can you explain which side of the coin you are on? You seem passionate, without clarity. Hateful of anyone conservative, without a reason. What happened in your life that makes you write posts as you do?
James Cobar July 24, 2014 at 02:23 am
Mr. F : Regrettably, our country is split into three, one White, one Black and oneRead More "Latino" and for me to lament the tragedy of this just so you can call it hate is in itself hate! I suggest you work real hard to hone your skills at truth seeking and stop trying to impose your false agenda on the rest of us! Speaking of Republicans, we all have witnessed the dirty tricks for some time now when Republicans have obstructed to hurt the country so that O'bama can take blame! Knowing the true character of an immoral political party that puts the health of the party over the health of the country, one must ask: Who are we really as a people?

Jan Brewer Orders Full Review Of Drawn-Out Execution Reuters Posted: 07/23/2014 8:49 pm EDT Updated:Read More 07/23/2014 9:59 pm EDT Print Article ********************************************** Wait, we kill mainly for revenge because it is known that the death penalty does not deter crime and in fact is more expensive than prison for life. We are nuts to put people to death but worry about the compassion of how this death is administrated! Somewhere I read "thou shall not kill" but never said it alright to kill if you commit a horrible crime! It is also true that the experience of the death penalty has been that we have put innocent people to death! The problem with the death penalty including those cited above is that killing people makes us just as barbaric as these criminals especially when used just for revenge! Why do tough on crime love the death penalty? Is this a form of pandering like when Republicans pander to the Christian-Right that have us believe they are fighting for the unborn and fighting against the "immorality" of being Gay?

As is the case in so many matters, how he came to contact the 'hot' (charged) wire(s) could have aRead More bearing on liability. For example, the victim could have had a heart attack, fell onto the wire and as his weight caused the wire to disconnect from its source (with electricity still flowing through it from the other end's connection) he touched the wire as he fell or slumped. In this scenario there is no negligence, only a tragic accident. In another scenario, the scaffolding could have been constructed in such a way that pressure was placed on the wire, causing it to disconnect and come into contact with the scaffold, making the victim's electrocution a matter of negligence on the part of whoever constructed the scaffold. Note: These examples are provided only as an illustration of why it may be important to establish the victim's health at the time of injury.
