The brat radio shack is privately owned so it may or may not fall into the corporation plans.

Sadly, no one on the right understands this. Sides, they announced they are selling more online. It's like those self-check-out lines. I bet every person who uses it is on some type of assistance...thinking the rich won't get rid of their welfare and clueless about the corporation stopping all check out cashier jobs and making YOU work for corporations for free.

JOE do they have any self service bar rooms in Windsor County cause the ones that have bartenders seem to serve me too much?I don't think a self serve at the liquor store would work either but I do like using and ordering things over the internet cause their is no push till you push "BUY" including the right size, color,series and a better explanation to specs and applications than you can get from a part time employee out side of a game or cell phone!!

do you cook your own food ?

If so you do your own shopping and cook your own food and do your own dishes, you should pay restaurant employee's to wait on you. The cost would be what 4 or 5 times as much as eating at home ? You would be the slave to the restaurant corporation.

Full service gas station charge for the service, I'll do it myself and self service checkouts help keep prices down so no problem.

In theory paying a little extra to have people wait on us would create jobs and a light labor market would push up wages and we would be all better off. I deal with reality, it's a tough world and everyone for themselves so I penny saved isn't a penny earned, it's like 2 cents earned because if we earn a 2 cents the government take 1.

CBS Journalist Resigns After Being Pressured Over ‘Anti-Obama’ Reporting
“Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air,”

Thief is probably the poorest correlation I have ever seen.

Let's stick to the topic at hand...do you scan your own groceries and other items and bag them when there are registers open with cashiers? If so, then you are getting rid of American jobs.

Grocery stores near me don't have self checkout lanes, only home depot does and they have tons of help in the store where it counts.

I would scan my own groceries because why should I care when I live in a country full of people driving vehicles made by foreign car companies ? My drop in the bucket is irrelevant and 1 hour of cashier labor a year from my shopping is totally meaningless in a country where nobody gives a crap about anyone but themselves as trillions of dollars is pissed away on all sorts of stuff.

Your pet peeve is like ranting about somebody leaving the bathroom light on while living so high on the hog the light bill is irrelevant.

no, let's instead stick to the REAL topic at hand- Why did ewe vote for those globalist shills who pushed for and/or voted for 'Free Trade' deals like NAFTA & GATT etc. to be passed and Favored Nation Trading status for our communist enemy China? Those treasonous congresscritters and presidents sold us out on purpose for the benefit of the international banksters who made them rich while the unfair trade deals and globalism made it much harder to start a manufacturing plant here but the banksters grease the skids for anyone with $$ wanting to start one overseas- Thanks A Lot Commie_Puker!

Republicans are the globalists..hence, their mantra that "corporations are people" to get more welfare checks from Congress which the repubicans gladly do while cutting food stamps for veterans.

Bush created 250 Free Trade Agreements. Daddy Bush signed the NAFTA treaty with Mexico and Canada. Not Clinton. He added on the fair wages which has fallen by the wayside.

The reason no jobs are being created here is Reagan, who got rid of the anti-trust laws. Those are the laws which kept monopolies from controlling the market. Now, we have monopolies doing business overseas and getting lower tarrifs and NO competition at home.

You really need to read history. And find books with facts. If you're voting republican or tea party, you're sinking our nation..and those of us who are patriots are getting mighty tired of that.
