Had a family member who went through the process with the FBI.  Said he felt less invaded by a colonoscopy...the background check is unbelievable.  If you and your buddies ever snuck out and smoked one of your dad's cigarettes behind the shed, they know about it. 

If you aren't afraid of your skeletons, go for it.

I'm obviously attending Mercer Univ. I guess when one is acting like an a-hole and badmouthing fellow students, professors, and their school, they don't want to be "outed".

I didn't have my handy "Make Your Son A Fake ID" kit in the trunk...

A good strip club would give you a free lapdance for bringing a pre-teen kid in

You speak like a man of authority on this subject...

:D

It IS un-American to hate your employees!

Unless they are illegal immigrants from Mexico, thatís seems to be all the rage these days.

::jumps on badnwagon starts the hate'n::


Suppose in some circles it's not unAmerican to hate unAmericans...

You must have missed "Bob's Booby Bungalow" that is just across the Alabama-Tennessee line in Tenn.  It is right next to I-65, lit up like Vegas so it's most likely safer.  I didn't go in either as I had my two adolescent sons in the car with me but we all got a kick out of the name and I got to have the "stripclubs-are-misogynistic-and-a-waste-of-money" conversation with them.

I suppose a more legitimate comparison would be between unionizing Walmart and what the employees at Kroger experience with their union.  In the state of Kentucky, employees of Kroger, the giant grocery chain headquartered in Cincinnati, OH, are unionized both in the stores and warehouses.  Unfortunately, they are affiliated with the Teamsters.  The people I know personally who are employed by Kroger are disappointed with the union.  But again, as I stated in my earlier post, the Teamsters are such a rotten example of what a union is or should be. 

Unions are NOT the reason the auto industry is in a hole right now and anyone who says otherwise is not looking at the industry with any intellectual honesty.  While I do support the right of any employee or any group of employees to stand up and demand fair treatment, I'm not sure that unionizing Wal mart will improve the quality of life for its employees nor will it eliminate a significant amount of the corporate rottenness towards the employees.  If anything, it will probably increase the harshness with which the management behaves. 

If they could unionize, not under any existing union because most are riddled with corruption, with a new paradigm of getting back to what unions were created for, I think it would be great for both the company and the union.  Or if Walmart could just learn from Toyota who has successfully prevented unions from entering their plants by basically TREATING THEIR EMPLOYEES WITH SOME DIGNITY.  I know people who work at Toyota in Georgetown, KY who swear that Toyota employs the Yakuza to bust unions, but they still make an excellent wage, have excellent benefits, and produce a high quality product.  It just seems unAmerican to hate your employees as much as Walmart does. 

Boy, that was all over the place...haven't had that first cup yet...sorry
