Sweet Jesus! Foxnews.com stoops to newest level in stupidity.
This is down right comical.
The libertarian conspiracy theorist was invited on BBC One’s “Sunday Politics” to discuss the ongoing Bilderberg conference, a closed-door meeting of industrialists and political leaders being held this year in Hertfordshire.
Watch the video, it starts out normally about a report of the summit. Jones doesn’t get interviewed til the end, but its priceless watching the other guest and the host’s reactions to Jones.
You knew something didn’t smell right, when the GOP were bringing up legislation that looked like it would favor the working class.
GOP seeks alternative to overtime pay
Yep that “Alternate or Flexible” part is given to the Employers, not the Employees.
The House of Representatives passed a Republican-sponsored bill on Wednesday evening purporting to offer greater flexibility to working families, but the bill has been vehemently opposed by women’s groups and labor unions who say the only “flexibility” offered by the bill is given to the employers and not the employees. The bill passed by a vote of 223-204 along party lines.
Liz Watson, senior advisor to the Education and Employment Team at the National Women’s Law Center, disagreed with Roby’s assessment of what the bill would do. “It takes cash out of the pocket of cash-strapped families under the guise of flexibility,” she said “It’s a bill that comes up right in time for Mother’s day — we say it’s the Mother’s Day equivalent of coal in your stocking.”
The Working Families Flexibility Act proposes to modify the Depression-era Fair Labor Standards Act, which requires hourly employees to receive time and a half for hours worked in excess of 40 a week, to allow employers to substitute “comp time” for overtime pay.
“And certainly to … earn time off [under this bill], you have to work beyond the hours in a work week. We think folks should be able to get time off without having to treat it as something extra. Let alone that there are many workers in low-wage jobs who never get to 40 hours a week because there’s a huge problem with involuntary part-time work today,” Watson continued.

This is the more likely scenario of NRA’s gun society. Where “Armed Citizens” feel they hero’s. Who put themselves in harms way, and then cry they were the victim.
Orange City police arrested Jose Martinez, 35, after they said he unleashed at least five bullets in the parking lot of the Walmart on Veterans Memorial Parkway.
Martinez told Local 6, he was defending himself from a shoplifter who nearly ran him over and injured him.
“The guy put me in danger and other people,” said Martinez as police hauled him off to jail Wednesday evening. “He tried to run me over.”
Martinez said to Local 6, he thought nobody else was in danger by his gunfire and he was surprised police arrested him. Martinez started opening fire because he said he wanted to mark the suspect’s car as he fled from the scene.
But police said Martinez only was bumped by the shoplifter’s getaway car because he was chasing after the car and even tried to open the door to the moving vehicle before he opened fire.
LaPierre is clearly flustered by Wallace, I am assume he thought he was going to get soft balls lobbed at him.
Gadsden flag being wave prominently, you know where this video is going to go.
At the 1:07 minute mark, he says this gem.
“I hear you loud and clear, Barack Obama. You don’t represent the country that I grew up with. And your values is not going to save us. We’re going to take this country back for the Lord. We’re going to try to take this country back for conservatism. And we’re not going to allow minorities to run roughshod over what you people believe in!”
You know that’s what they are going to say?
Church wants to donate money to Wounded Warrior Program. WWP denies them because they are a non-partisan organization and have chosen not to accept fundraising from companies with a product or message that is religious in nature.
Pastor Cooley said they were so shocked that the school secretary called Wounded Warrior to make sure there hadn’t been a mistake. He said a WWP representative assured her that ‘religious’ was indeed on their banned list.
‘We had to tell our children and parents we can’t give to the Wounded Warrior Project,’ Pastor Cooley told Fox News. ‘We are second-class citizens now because we are people of faith.’
So instead of finding some other way to donate money, e.g., Donating Anonymously. They took the low road by declaring they were second class citizens.
‘Our school is all about patriotism,’ she told Fox News. ‘We teach that our country was founded for religious freedom – and then to find out that we couldn’t even support the Wounded Warriors because we are Christians – it was hard to explain it to them.’
Odd, I didn’t see anything that said they were banned because they were Christians, in WWP’s statement.
Becky Sharp teaches sixth grade at Liberty Baptist Academy. She posted a message on the Wounded Warrior Facebook page noting here extreme disappointment. She said her students had already raised $400 – many of the boys and girls donated their lunch money.
‘I am deeply disappointed that an organization such as yours would reject money from American citizens who want to thank their soldiers for what they have done,’ she wrote.
The pastor said they have already returned donations that had been collected and will be looking for another veterans group to help
So the Moral of this story is, We don’t really care about helping a needy orginization, we just want to make sure we get our credit for helping.
Waitress posts note of tip on bill on as something humorous.
‘Parties up to eight at my work may tip whatever they’d like,’ explains the server, ‘but larger parties receive an automatic gratuity. It’s in the computer, it’s not something I do.’ The auto-gratuity policy is apparently also listed on the menu.
In total, the group ran up more than $200 worth of food before tax and tip, says the server. As for whether or not the zero-dollar tip reflect the quality of service, the waiter writes, ‘They had no problem with my service, and told me I was great. They just didn’t want to pay when the time came.’
Being a Christian Pastor, he/she demands everyone be fired over this.
Yet another reason to never go Appleby’s again.
‘My heart is really broken,’ said the 37-year-old Bell. ‘I’ve brought embarrassment to my church and ministry.’
Yeah, I am sure it is.
The horrible accounts of what first responders saw at Sandy Hook.
‘One look, and your life was absolutely changed,’ said Michael McGowan, one of the first police officers to arrive at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, as a gunman, in the space of minutes, killed 20 first graders and 6 adults.
The officers searched the room for any other gunmen, then began searching for signs of life among the children. One little girl had a pulse and was breathing. Officer Chapman cradled her in his arms and ran with her outside, to an ambulance. Officer Chapman, a parent himself, tried to comfort her. ‘You’re safe now; your parents love you,’ he recalled saying. She did not survive.
They say time heals all wounds, I don’t think there is enough time in the world for that.
I suppose the Rightwing, will claim these guys are actors too?
