States That Raised Minimum Wage See No Slow-Down In Job Growth

Stormthirst Re:Local testing works? (778 comments)

Why not got one step further - the fines imposed on the employer could be set at the difference between the actual wage earned and the (minimum wage + $1/hour). The $1/hour/employee goes to the state bringing the prosecution to pay for the prosecution, the rest going to the employee. Punishment to fit the crime and it doesn't cost the tax payers to bring the prosecution.

Don't like it? Don't employee illegal immigrants, and pay your employees at least the minimum wage.

Let's Call It 'Climate Disruption,' White House Science Adviser Suggests (Again)

Stormthirst Re:I gotta better name (568 comments)

Try telling that to the politicians trying to defund the EPA. None of them "get it". Or at least they are paid not to "get it"

Vintage 1960s Era Film Shows IRS Defending Its Use of Computers

Stormthirst Re:Uproar? (146 comments)

I personally don't because I don't use cash unless I have to. And then only coins.

I do see people use cash at the self checkout, and if a client has paid me in cash I tend to spend it by buying at the grocery store.

Can the ObamaCare Enrollment Numbers Be Believed?

Stormthirst Re:i pledge to you... (723 comments)

It (government saves a life) has never happened (likely never will) so we will never know how Jesus would accomplish such.

Unless of course, you live in a civilized country with a universal/socialized healthcare system.

More On the Disposable Tech Worker

Stormthirst Re:its not asy (323 comments)

That's ok - he's an executive director. I bet he gets a golden fuck off. It's like a golden parachute except ... well there's no except. He gets paid to fuck off. Unlike any other sector of the work force. He gets paid to be a cunt to people.

Massachusetts Court Says 'Upskirt' Photos Are Legal

Stormthirst Re:A new law in not what is needed (519 comments)

No, the fact she is wearing a skirt means she not nude or partially nude. The fact she might or might not be wearing panties is not relevant.

She is expecting privacy - or she wouldn't be wearing a skirt.

Stormthirst Re:A new law in not what is needed (519 comments)

You realize that the underwear is part of the reason why they take the photos - right?

There's a reason why girls doing the can-can wear underwear.

I call bullshit on this. I have a Rio Carbon which was released in 2004 which uses a USB charger as standard.

I never understood why iPhone's adapter is a completely retarded pile of junk. What's wrong with the standard USB adapter like everyone else? Oh aside from them making a cock load of money from cables.
