"real dumb"
One more time you lie. The president of White Castle was on TV today and said in his company all workers, not in management do not work more than 30 hours a week. I know a man who owns a number of grocery stores in Montana and Idaho that does not permit clerks, shelf stockers, etc. to work more than 30 hours per week.
Quit lying.

two example does not mean all.

First of all, were these PT employees just hired? were they once FT?

No.

The truth is this. Prior to the passing of the ACA, some companies utilized part time employees to void paying them certain benefits like health insurance, vacations, sick days, etc.

It has been going on for decades.

Along comes the ACA mandate and our dumbass ignorant right whiners at as though using PTers to avoid paying benefits is something new.

You people are so GD stupid you don't know that the percentage of companies under the employee mandate is under 5%. Of those 5%, the vast majority already offer health insurance.

This is what I love about you people. Every GD day you demonstrate just how uneducated & uninformed you are.

"Damn the torpedoes, Full speed ahead!"

Admiral David Glasgow Farragut (1801-1870). Aboard Hartford, Farragut entered Mobile Bay, Alabama, 5 August 1864, in two columns, with armored monitors leading and a fleet of wooden ships following. When the lead monitor Tecumseh was demolished by a mine, the wooden ship Brooklyn stopped, and the line drifted in confusion toward Fort Morgan. As disaster seemed imminent, Farragut gave the orders embodied by these famous words. He swung his own ship clear and headed across the mines, which failed to explode. The fleet followed and anchored above the forts, which, now isolated, surrendered one by one. The torpedoes to which Farragut and his contemporaries referred would today be described as tethered mines.
[Hearn, Chester G. Admiral David Glasgow Farragut: The Civil War Years.(Annapolis, MD: Naval Institute Press, 1988): 263-265. According to the book by Admiral Farragut's son, The Life of David Glasgow Farragut, First Admiral of the United States Navy,(New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1879), pages 416-417, Admiral Farragut said "Damn the torpedoes! Four bells! Captain Crayton, go ahead! Joucett, full speed!"]

O'bama administration PROFILES!!! who knew?
President Obama was bound to receive a warm response from the audience attending his speech at the University of Central Missouri yesterday — because some students who disagreed with him weren’t allowed into the building.

Christopher White of The College Fix reports that students wearing “Tea Party T-Shirts and others who wore patriotic or Republican-inspired clothing” were turned away at the door under the guise of security concerns, despite the fact that they held tickets to the event.

I’d like to offer a helpful tip to all College Republicans who hope to attend an Obama speech in the future: Odds of admission improve if you wear a Che Guevara t-shirt, an “I Heart Kim Jong Un” campaign button, and/or a ballcap displaying the slogan “Obama Girl” prominently above the brim.

O'bama is not the president of ALL Americans.

How about we look at some numbers.
316 million total population.
86.4 million under 20.
40.5 million over 65.
1.6 million disabled.
21 million in universities.
130 million full time jobs.
8.2 million part time jobs.
The ratio of full time to part time jobs is 15.8.
Your economic recovery is creating 5 times as many part time jobs as full time jobs.
The real percentage of people available for work but not working is 17 percent.
The annual deficit is 1.3 trillioin, down from 1.6 trillion it grew to before the TEA Party came to Congress in 2011.
The total debt is 17 trillion. The US economy is only 15 trillion.
The debt grows at 8 percent each year, while the calculated economic growth is only 2 percent. The real (private) economy that actually pays for everything is stagnant, and is only about 12 trillion.
So, the debt is one and a half times as big as what pays it.
And, the debt grows at almost 8 percent a year.
A stagnant economy has to pay a debt that is one and a half times its size and grows at 8 percent every year.
An idiot can tell you this system will collapse. What we need to do to fix it is to stop borrowing money. That is the 1.3 trillion dollars every year.
So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
June 2013 TTL FT 135,707,000 PT 8,200,000

Total when the job losses ended in 2009:

Ttl FT 129,320,000 PT 9.2 million.

Now, I realize you aren't too swift but since Obama got us growing again, 6.5 million new ft jobs. 1 million fewer PT jobs./

So explain how 6.5 million is 5 times as many as a negative 1 million?

The projected deficit this year is under 760 billion is not not even close to your 1.3 trillion number.

How? Economic growth.

You are either a liar or dumber than sh*t. Or in other words, a Tea Party member.

More Invasion of Privacy by the Obama DiKKKtatorship

The U.S. government has demanded that major Internet companies divulge users' stored passwords, according to two industry sources familiar with these orders, which represent an escalation in surveillance techniques that has not previously been disclosed.

If the government is able to determine a person's password, which is typically stored in encrypted form, the credential could be used to log in to an account to peruse confidential correspondence or even impersonate the user. Obtaining it also would aid in deciphering encrypted devices in situations where passwords are reused.

"I've certainly seen them ask for passwords," said one Internet industry source who spoke on condition of anonymity. "We push back."

A second person who has worked at a large Silicon Valley company confirmed that it received legal requests from the federal government for stored passwords. Companies "really heavily scrutinize" these requests, the person said. "There's a lot of 'over my dead body.'"

Some of the government orders demand not only a user's password but also the encryption algorithm and the so-called salt, according to a person familiar with the requests. A salt is a random string of letters or numbers used to make it more difficult to reverse the encryption process and determine the original password. Other orders demand the secret question codes often associated with user accounts.

That irrelevant, the point is the lie you've repeated over and over that an eyewitness testified that Martin threw the first punch.
I only want one thing:
Did you know you were lying or were you led to that conclusion by your preferred news source or did you make an assumption and present it as a fact?
Used logic, pretty much. Only one of them had a fractured nose, two black eyes and was overtaken.

I also happen to believe Zimmerman was telling the truth.

If you agree with the verdict, why do you keep splitting hairs?

Are you just trying to be argumentative? Or are you bored?

Yeah, the investigation has not found any political motivation behind it. Fox just keeps chewing that bone for ratings. Glad you've found a home with tabloids but don't expect me to answer for every piece of tripe they churn out.
Now, when you gonna answer the questions I was asking long before you asked the above.
That's very rude.
The nature of the targets makes a prima facie case for political motivation, for all but the blind.
