The State ends up paying for its citizens when those citizens need to rely on welfare because their job doesn't pay them enough to live. I don't see why taxpayers should get stuck holding the bag while business owners reap all the profit. Again, the welfare of the citizens is the responsibility of ...

Nope. If you can't pay your employees a decent wage, you shouldn't be in business. The restaurant industry in the U.S. is currently struggling to find workers, not only because so many people are dead from COVID, but because of the low pay and sh_tty working conditions. Workers may not be entitled ...

If you can't pay your employees a living wage, then you shouldn't be in business. Owning a business isn't a right, nor is there a "right" to cheap labor. The U.S. seriously needs to get it's ducks in a row concerning worker rights. What is the purpose of opening a business? When I opened ...

^ I remember that case from the 80s where the parents of a bunch of kids at an elementary school were able to coach their children to make false accusations of sexual abuse. A lot of people's lives were ruined before it was revealed to be a bunch of bunk. Also, I imagine it's more difficult for male...

I believe everyone is entitled to a good whinge every once and awhile, so this is mine: I. HATE. RAGWEED. Yes, it's ragweed season here in Arkansas, and I'm typing between sneezing and coughing fits. Last year, I was blessedly allergy-free, but I attribute that to having to wear a mask while out and...

Exercise isn't a guaranteed cure for depression. In fact, people can use the endorphin high to avoid having to face their problems. Also, injuries happen and bodies age. If your mental health is completely dependent on exercise, then you're eventually going to hit a wall. The issue is that the prob...

There are more empty homes in the U.S. than there are homeless people.  We could solve the problem if we wanted to, but we do not. Yes; but something more must be done than to just take the plywood off the front doors and invite the homeless inside.  Many of these abandoned homes have already been ...

[...] I'm talking about all the rental properties being horded by landlords in pursuit of profit. "Hoarded"?  Do you mean when a landlord owns more than one rental property? There is nothing wrong with that; after all, someone has to own them.  If someone else wants to own them, they they...

Speaking anecdotally, I've had female friends who did say no and try to push the man away, but he persisted. Later, the man would claim something along the lines of, "I thought she was into it and just playing hard to get." For the record I would count that as rape. It seems some men can ...

As an aside right at the beginning of the article: Mr Lazarus was convicted by a jury and served 11 months of a three-year non-parole period. However, he was acquitted in a judge-only trial after the judge ruled that while Ms Mullins had not consented, Mr Lazarus believed she was consenting. Look a...
