You are a funny guy, slewche. Full of lots of vitriol, but no substance.

Gallup poll, 2008 - Smoking % by income bracket

$6000 and under - 30%
$6000 -$12000 - 34%
$12000 -$24000 - 30%
$24000 -$36000 - 26%
$36000 -$48000 - 22%
$48000 -$60000 - 21%
$60000 -$90000 - 16%
$90000 -$120000- 13%
$120000 and up - 13%

You make the call. Which group of potential employees will be hurt the most by barring employment because of smoking?

Hurt the most, by giving up a bad habit ???

Still wondering why you're "sure" the poor folks are applying at Penn Med ?

Seems you don't really care, since you disparage the SEIU janitor/security staff so frequently....

Try honesty, maybe you'll like it ??? LMAOROTFU~!

Although, your frequent misquotes will suffer...

As usual, you have posted zero, 0, zip, zilch, nada, factual evidence to disprove that the poor smoke in greater numbers, by making it legal to bar employment due to smoking, it will harm the low income the most.

Liberals can't link data inputs with the probable outcomes, so I am not surprised at your uneducated response and senseless flailing.

I await your poll, data, or paper showing that you have any kind of point at all, low integrity poster.

Nice precedent for this health care provider to set.

The poor smoke in greater numbers, by setting the precedent to bar employment due to smoking, it will harm the low income the most.

I guess Smart Liberal was right, Obamacare is going to screw over the poor the most.

Slewsie, not everyone can be the barron of Wall Street like you. Of course poor people are applying for the jobs at that university health system. Poor people need jobs too. Now, take your meds so you don't end up there getting smoke blown in your face from the job applicants.

To paraphrase you slewche, "Everybody deserves a smoking wage".

I would say smokers deserve a chance to work. Next thing the health group will say is anyone more than 25 pounds over their ideal weight can't be hired, because it raises their chance of diabetes. Maybe they won't consider anyone with high blood pressure for hire, because their incidence of heart attack and stroke is too high. Maybe they will not hire Greeks and black people, because the incidence of sickle cell anemia is too great. The next state over, a health group will look at their model of cost containment and alter their hiring policies, and so on.

I spelled this out because of your lack of ability to extrapolate.

If anyone hates the poor, it is the group that attempts to reward the poor for doing nothing, reinforcing that you don't have to do anything for yourself, someone else will do it for you. Making the poor less employable by making discrimination against smokers in hiring OK just pushes them farther onto the public dole with less chance to get out.

Geez, under my month deadline, right mouthy troll ???
Boeing Co on Friday gave U.S. aviation regulators its plan to fix the volatile battery aboard its new 787 Dreamliner, even though investigators have not yet determined what caused the batteries to overheat on two planes last month.
Boeing did not propose abandoning the lithium-ion batteries and is not working on a backup or longer-term fix for the problem that has grounded its entire fleet of 50 Dreamliners for nearly five weeks, three sources familiar with the plan said.
The company and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said no firm result emerged from the meeting between Deputy Transportation Secretary John Porcari, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta and other FAA officials and Boeing Commercial Airplanes CEO Ray Conner and other senior Boeing executives in Washington.
With Boeing's costs mounting by millions of dollars a day while the planes are on the ground, the FAA said it is "reviewing a Boeing proposal and will analyze it closely. The safety of the flying public is our top priority and we won't allow the 787 to return to commercial service until we're confident that any proposed solution has addressed the battery failure risks."
Boeing declined to comment on the details of its proposal, but said the meeting with the FAA was productive.
The proposal to the FAA includes measures to address a range of possible causes of short-circuits in the batteries, the sources said.
Five weeks ago, U.S. authorities grounded the worldwide fleet of 787s. U.S., Japanese and French investigators are still not certain what caused the battery fire aboard an All Nippon Airways 787 in Boston and an overheated, smoking battery on a Japan Airlines 787 in Japan.
The proposed fix includes adding ceramic insulation between the cells of the battery to help keep cells cool and prevent a "thermal runaway" in which one cell overheats and triggers overheating in adjacent cells. It also includes building a stronger, larger stainless steel box with a venting tube to contain a fire and expel fumes outside the aircraft should a battery catch fire again, the sources said. In addition, the plan proposed wiring changes, self-torquing screws that will not come loose and battery alterations to prevent moisture and vibration problems, one of the sources said.
But there was also a plan to use a different battery type or some other longer-term fix, the sources said.
"I have talked to a number of people who are working directly on these batteries. No one is on the Plan-B team," said a person familiar with Boeing's efforts who was not authorized to speak publicly about them.
A second source, who also was not authorized to speak publicly, said Boeing does not view its proposal as a temporary "band-aid" that would be supplanted by another solution later.

Horse Face,

(Who do you blame for your "Condition?....God?)

Why are you here?

Not "here" as in On Topix being an iddiiot 16/7 365, but why are you here on this Astral Plane?

Have you ever even asked yourself why you choose to stay such a Despicable Human Being?

If you have, what answer did you give yourself that has kept you from acknowledging the waste of oxygen that you are.....What keeps you from going to the light.

You gotta be miserable, the Shaat you spew reveals what you are to all the are cursed to cross your path. It must in some way register with you someplace in that sick mind that you are irreparably damaged and there is no redemption here on Earth.

Nothing, That is what you are nothing!

At least a Boil on someones azz serves a purpose, it lets the person know that there is a problem. You are a Boil on the azz of Humanity, but we all know what the problem is.....EXCEPT YOU!

(Uncle Daddy has apologized too many times! It is time for you to do the right thing!)
