Gender Pay Gap Will Be Erased, But It Will Take 118 Years: Report
Thu Nov 19, 2015
I'm so sick of hearing this nonsense about the gender pay gap. There was a recent study that showed women make 97% of what men make when (and this is the key) all other factors are considered. The whole "70 cents" thing is a complete joke. It's almost as idiotic as complaining that …

Tue Oct 27, 2015
In reply to: Political Prisoner 2012 #6 You might want to do more research. Where I live, the teachers average about $95K in salary and more than half make over $100K. In addition, they work 190 days per year compared to about 230 in the private sector and have very generous pensi …
Consumers Have Scant Choices When It Comes to Set-Top Pay TV Boxes
Tue Aug 11, 2015
This has really annoyed me for a long time. The cable companies are basically false advertising on all those flyers that offer "bundles" for $99/month. The truth is that you cannot receive their programming without a set top box. Basically, it's like a restaurant selling a soda for …

American Dream Home: What's the Middle Class Without a House?
Tue Mar 17, 2015
In reply to:Mom2be #1.27 You are obviously very biased against purchasing a house. However, you are overlooking quite a few things. In many cases, rent for a decent house is going to cost you just as much as the mortgage and all those other costs you'd be paying for a house. I own …

Wed Jan 28, 2015
In reply to:the thinker-318752 #1.3 I don't it was idiotic at all. The reference point most people are familiar with is .08% BAC since that is where you are legally considered intoxicated and can be given a DUI. Can you suggest a better reference point ? Perhaps they could have jus …
