2-year-old who lost feet to dad's lawn mower will walk again, mom says
Thu Apr 11, 2013
I don't even let my dog in the yard when I am on the tractor. One of my tractors automatically stops the blades when in reverse, and the other has an override that should only be used if you are sure there is no risk of anyone in the area you are mowing. A similar accident happened in our area a cou …
Sen. Portman's gay son writes column about coming out to his dad
Mon Mar 25, 2013
As I have contemplated this issue, I have reached my position in this way: If my daughter came to me and said she was gay, would I want her to be able to marry and seek happiness? The answer is yes I would. But realize this, along with the right to marry, you also must deal with all the responsibili …
Flu season fuels debate over paid sick time laws
Mon Jan 21, 2013
Seriouly? Are you delusional? What the hell is a "Patriotic Business Developer"? So George Bush is responsible for this "problem" too? You must be a government worker that has no responsibility, and has never had to worry about making payroll, competing with other businesses, and I know this is prob …
Anti-Obamacare rhetoric guts Papa John's and Applebee's reputations
Wed Dec 5, 2012
Want employer paid benefits? Get educated or learn a trade, and get a better job. That's what I did. Just takes sacrifice and hard work. Wal-Mart, Papa John's and Denny's jobs aren't meant to support entire families. But, if that is where you work, then you can work hard, become a manager, and make …
Obama presses Congress to extend middle-class tax cuts
Fri Nov 30, 2012
So many angry hateful democrats. Wow. The insults are really beneath all of us. I am all for letting us go over that cliff. The only fair tax increase is an increase on ALL. It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to take a position that someone else (those making over $200K / $250K) needs to tak …
First Thoughts: Moving on?
Thu Nov 29, 2012
The truth will come out over the next 4 years, and I fear it will be ugly. Those of us that are actually part of running businesses, and have accountability for making payroll, for P & L, and for deciding on hiring and firing are listening to the finance folks. BTW, we are tightening belts. I al …
Obama claims mandate on taxes
Wed Nov 14, 2012
Ever notice how every picture of Obama is of his head turned to the left or right to see his teleprompter? He can't think on his own. How does a popular vote that is nearly 50 - 50 = a clear mandate by the voters for raising taxes? That's about as intelligent as most of the libs on this board. You w …
Obama sticks to guns on tax increase for wealthiest Americans
Fri Nov 9, 2012
Why is raising taxes on someone else always your answer? We can't afford the Government at the level it is. We can't afford this many people living off the government. We can't afford this many people working in unecessary government jobs, getting 2 months off a year, and full retirement after 20. N …
First Thoughts: Aggressive Biden
Fri Oct 12, 2012
Why don't you try educating yourself and elevating yourself to a better job? Sewing, Yellow Pages (hint, no one uses them anymore), medical coder??? And you wonder why you can't find a job??? That's right, it's my fault because technically I am a 1%er.
