For women's safety August 21, 2014 at 8:43 p.m.

I recall one such shelter, of which the Guv's wife is currently on the board, respond to a complaint of verifiable racism by forcing out the two who made the complaint (one fired for job-related deficiencies less than one month after receiving an 'exceptional' review) and falsifying employee records (which could be proven) to justify terminating the other, all without bothering to even interview the complainants. Or is that acceptable because, hey, shelters help women?

Minimum wage group turns in petition haul August 19, 2014 at 8:34 p.m.

Well, as somebody who worked min wage in high school, I certainly would have objected to making less money than somebody else doing the same job simply because I wasn't older. And besides, I'm pretty sure US law currently would forbid a two tiered system based on age.

Minimum wage group turns in petition haul August 19, 2014 at 5:08 p.m.

the bottom line is that the data indicates minimum wage workers are generally <25 and not high school/college educated. The data also says a majority are food service workers that get supplemented with tips and some portion aren't full time workers. The vast majority therefore aren't trying to raise a family on minimum wage. And the path out of it is experience and education. So a two tiered system really isn't necessary.

Police name officer, say teenager a robber August 18, 2014 at 6:02 a.m.

Well, some protesters refuse to believe it's even Brown on the tape. How do you have a rational discussion with THAT? And I presume the police HAVE a white witness - the officer. But for some reason he's pretty much been convicted by all but a court of law. And you watch the riots if he ISN'T convicted. Fact is, the behavior of the black community over this incident is disgusting. Nearly as disgusting as the pandering of those in charge.

Trial of Texas father raises legal, moral issues August 17, 2014 at 3:09 p.m.

This is just ludicrous on many levels.
.
" gunshot residue tests done on Barajas came back negative."
.
Umm...so the evidence indicates Barajas DIDN'T fire a gun?
.
"But Brazoria County sheriff's investigator Dominick Sanders said that in the moments after the crash, there had been no way to know it was alcohol related."
.
Umm...does the law even make that distinction for somebody over the limit?

Police name officer, say teenager a robber August 16, 2014 at 5:12 p.m.

"the officer didn't know that any robbery had taken place"
.
Oh? That car not having a working police radio? Sorry, but I'm not giving much weight to a witness who robbed a store with the deceased. What seems plausible to ME is that Brown thought the officer DID know about the robbery. And that Brown was disinclined to be arrested. I, however, and unlike the animals looting currently in MO, will wait for the FACTS. Unfortunately, regardless of the FACTS, this officer will be thrown to the wolves. Anything less, and the riots you see NOW in Ferguson will PALE in comparison to the ones coming.

U.S. job openings in June hit 13-year-plus high August 12, 2014 at 8:05 p.m.

I'm not sure I think 2 million people deciding not to work is such a good thing...but what do I know.

The destructive behavior of teachers' unions August 3, 2014 at 11:35 a.m.

"Why can't the unions be the same way, wholly focused on the welfare and pecuniary interests of their members? "
.
In the private sector, sure. Let the market deal with it - or not in the case of certain companies. Public sector is different. But the issue here is multifaceted. Unions ARE bad at getting rid of dead weight. Schools are often top-heavy. Kids get to school completely unprepared and don't have the home support they NEED. How many things like 'common core' have we tried? Enough to know it won't work and is a waste of useful dollars.

Boozman tours Texas alien-holding units August 2, 2014 at 12:23 p.m.

"We have enough of our citizens getting paid for nothing and now we are supposed to welcome thousands more to do the same. "
.
I'd be willing to bet those thousands more work their tails off and have little in common with the citizens we have getting paid for nothing.

Post office with 33 patrons to stay open July 30, 2014 at 8:35 p.m.

3WS; "The GOP helped the USPS get into this issue by making them fund their pensions in an inordinate amount of time"
.
Well, according to the GAO, retiree health is 48% funded and the unfunded liability is 48 BILLION. It's pension is 94% funded with an unfunded liability of 19 BILLION. So, yeah, bad GOP.
