Would someone explain to me how blowing up everything nut the WMD's is going to stop them from using WMD's? Seems to me that with nothing to lose they would just use more of them. Maybe on Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, or Saudi Arabia.

Well I can't speak for Walmart since I do not shop there, but; at Costco, there are two self check outs. This is fine for people who know how to maneuver them, but, the elderly people can't do it. Same at Home Depot. What about the cash paying customers? they still need a cashier.
Cash payers can participate in WalMarts self pay lanes as well as those at Lowes, Home Depot and elsewhere.

Flack said that a single WalMart employee could oversee 14 self checkout lanes and that is total bullsht. He wasn't exaggerating but talking out his azz__lying.

He doesn't need to lie__people here mostly like Flack.

Someone should remind Obama, kerry et al of this passage from the land of Camelot (being as it was of the same that opened the screen doors of great influxes of ILLegal immigration by removing the QUOTA cap that previoulsy has at least some constrains on it, as well as presented this potus to the elctorial masses)

In language very different from his inaugural address, President Kennedy told Americans in June 1963,

"For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal."

Seems to be a successful business model for them.
Costco's business model does not require as many low-skilled employees as Walmart, so you are comparing apples to oranges.

No clue what a "living wage" is, but Costco salaries are less than what the McD's burger flippers are demanding.

Now, go back to molesting fifth graders, you pervert.

Why does Obama hate Israel?
He should be encouraging sanctions against Syria, along with the help of other middle east nations.
Funny how you nitwits wanted Obama to attack Iran, and called him weak for pushing sanctions against Iran!! DUH

You right wing morons fail to realize that it is Israel pushing Obama behind the scenes to attack Syria.

DUH!!

Syria is Iran's closest ally. Assad is the delivery system for Iranian weapons to Hezbollah so they can attack Israel with them.

And who is Hezbollah helping in the Civil War?? Assad's Syria, that's who!!

Meanwhile you nitwits, esp. Nobraina, quibble about who used the chemical weapons. It was Assad, there is ample proof, including the satellite images showing where the chemicals were fired from, as well as intel showing the Syrian regime worrying that they would be caught.

I might remind you idiots that Nobraina has been wrong about everything since this thread began, regardless of what name or location he uses. He was the nitwit pushing coal, claiming it would win out over ng. Now that King Coal is dead and buried, he moved to natural gas. What a fraud!!

Taking out Assad would be the biggest favor Obama could do for Israel.

You and chumpchimp Nobraina prove you're the stupidest people on this thread, you methhead lunaTIC.

It's funny to see the Republiclown Party siding with Obama on this.

I don't like it, but Obama will get Congressional approval.

You can take it to the bank.

As far as 'boots', are you nitwits stupid enough to believe we don't have special forces units in Syria already? As well as Israel, Britain, France, and others?

If so, you're even more stupid than I gave you credit for.

We should have a team decapitate the Syrian regime. Save a lot of expensive cruise missiles.

And why is it impossible for a single employee to monitor 14 self serve registers. As long as the idiots buying the stuff hasa minimum of intelligence all the person has to do is stand there and help the occasional person with a bad code or no code.

Congress has the sole power to declare war, but not the power to dictate the limits of the military action.
Not true. According to Jack Goldsmith, a former Bush Justice Department official who now teaches at Harvard law:

"Congress could write an authorization that would limit Obama’s options in a number of ways, placing restrictions on available resources, possible targets, methods of military force, or even a time limit on the authorization itself."

The White House knew and expected that their "draft" proposal would be amended by Congress and "figured it was part of the process".

Many Grocery store chains have ended the self check out experiment.

Losses are far higher in self check out than in employee check out.

It's been proven.

What WalMart saves in check out clerks they will pay for in loss prevention personnel, stopping every customer at the door to verify they paid for everything in their basket.

Most WalMarts are located in poor neighborhoods, their clientele is largely poor and lower middle class people like Flake And Nobraina.

Nobraina considers WalMart to be upscale. Compared to the free food he stands in line for, he's likely right.

----------

Stores are increasingly adding self checkouts, which can make it more convenient for many people to shop — and steal.

Walmart and CVS are among the chains adding self-scanning lanes. But at least two grocery chains — Albertson's and New England-based Big Y— have abandoned their self service moves. Both cited customer service as the reason, although Big Y says shoplifting played into the decision.

Theft — intentional or not — is up to five times higher with self checkout than when cashiers are working, says Malay Kundu, founder of Stoplift Checkout Vision Systems, which sells store video analytic software.

Kundu's company has seen people scanning their Starbucks as bananas, leaving their items in the cart or reusable bag instead of scanning them and overloading the bagging area so that un-scanned merchandise can be piled on without being sensed.

----------

I don't know why you bother with Flake and Nobraina. The former is a brain dead truck driver, the latter a sociopath.

What if I scan a $2.00 item that weighs 8 oz & then place 8 OZ of steak in my bag? Who would know?

That $50 watch in my bag while scanning a candy bar.

Ever notice things set aside at these registers?
