Mar 11th 2011 6:48PM This house is probably owned by one of those overpaid public school teachers or some other public employee. I guess the economy is in really bad shape when someone hasn't already snapped this bargain up. Good thing we millionaires, billionaires and corporate CEOs haven't had to pay our fair share in taxes for decades! Crazy old Vermont Senator Sanders thinks he is going to get us to pay like a 5% surtax to help with the deficit! Ha! Deficit reduction needs to be done by taking away heating assistance from the poor, education funding, the EPA...useless stuff like that. Maybe the Koch Brothers will buy this place for Scott Walker to move into after he gets recalled.
Mar 11th 2011 6:41PM I bet this is one of the homes owned by those over-paid teachers or some other public employee. I can easily see how bad our economy is by looking at this house and am so glad we are all sacrificing. Meanwhile, let's cut funding for the elderly and poor who need heating assistance, let's cut education funding, let's cut every damn thing and for sure let's NEVER increase taxes on multi-millionaires and corporations. That crazy Senator Sanders from Vermont wants millionaires to pay like a 4 or 5% surtax to help the deficit? They can't afford that! Why should they help out the nation? Just because their corporations get all kinds of government bailouts, subsidies and other forms of corporate welfare? Maybe the Koch Brothers will buy this for Scott Walker to move into when he gets recalled by the people of Wisconsin.
Nov 3rd 2009 1:10PM NEVER have, NEVER will use the self-check out lane.
Here's an idea for retailers that want to make more profit: sell quality merchandise at the lowest price around, provide good customer service, and stop donating big bucks to politicians and lobbyists.
Start taking away the cashier jobs, and your job may be next. Where will the self-service trend end? Now that we all pump our own gas, wash our own windshields, check out our own groceries, what is left? Self-serve bars? Sure, I could mix my own martini, but who could I tell my troubles to?
Check out my own groceries, but who is going to tell me that my kid is so cute and to have a nice day? I think that the reason the retailers are against cashiers is because some of them will actually let you know when a sale is coming up or where you can find a cute sweater that goes with those slacks.
