I assume you did not deliver papers when you were young. Paper boys do not negotiate their pay, its set by the newspaper. The paper boss gives what he has to to get the job done. No gold star for that one, Easy. Paper boys do not negotiate their rates.<quoted text>
Having been away from paper boys for a few years I don't know the answer, but here's what I think happened the price of materials went up, this caused the paper to jack up the price, then the government came in and raised the minimum wage, the paper boy not being stupid figured out that he could make a few more bucks.
Do I get an attaboy and gold star?
The oath is to obey the orders of those placed above me and that includes the dip-shit president as commander in chief.
I am all for products being made in America by American labors, be they farmers, ranchers or whatever, but they all have to compete on the world markets and the unions have priced themselves out of that market and to be honest they have pushed aside a hell of a lot of Americans who can not afford there products. They are selling to the elites not average Joe Blow. I may add also not to the majority of minorities. Gold Star for sure on that one!!!!
Paper boy rates go up because the dollar goes down, its not because the modern paper boy is more efficient.
Your oath was to defend the USC from all enemies, foreign and domestic. To show faith and allegiance to the USC........and then follow orders as long as they conform to the UCMJ. Following orders.......and thats it ? So let me get this straight......if Obama orders you to rape your mother you would do it ? If Obama orders you to wear a UN flag and kill Americans you would do it ?
Come on man, you claim to be a military man yet you talk like a school boy........
A few German soldiers tried that "just following orders" trick. They rightfully hung from a rope, feet kicking and eyes bulging.
Just following orders from a corrupt congress and executive is why our industries have eroded, why our society erodes. Just following orders is why your pension erodes.
Questioning authority is an American tradition, or at least it used to be.
BTW - Killing communist did not cause the collapse of communism. Economics did that just as economics will be our Waterloo.
