I'm doing really well because part of my pay is in stock adn my company's stock is doing well. People getting a $1k bonus and $1/hour pay raise are happy, but the divide will continue to grow between those that have savings/investments and those that live paycheck to paycheck. I guess they can afford to upsize their McDonald's meal now, which is great, but I'll be flying to Europe and taking cruises.
    Gotcha.

Heck, my inlaws are still funding five of their children in some form or fashion, and they are all grown, married, and graduated from college.
    Yeah, I know way too many people who have done or are currently doing the same thing. Sad to watch.

    I wasn't clear, but in my head prior to actually typing a response it was very clear that i was alluding to the fact that the bonuses and raises are great for the WM employees, unless you were one of the thousands of employees that are getting canned during the recently announced closures.

    walmart is unique in that it operates in some respects as a company town for its low wage employees. its effects on labor, especially in small ish towns, is going to continue to be interesting.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Funny to hear Mitch McConnell saying yesterday that he won't allow any immigration/DACA proposals to get a vote in the Senate until he knows what President Trump wants. Uh yeah, forget being any kind of leader yourself. Let's defer to the dude in the WH who changes his mind about everything every five minutes. Then you can be all surprised in November when your party gets swept out of power. Good move.

    Hungarian Police Have A Warrant Out For Former Trump Adviser Sebastian Gorka
    Gorka's warrant on gun charges was in effect the entire time he was in the White House.



    Former Trump White House staffer Sebastian Gorka has an active warrant out for his arrest in Hungary, according to the Hungarian police's website.

    Gorka, whose exact role in the White House while serving as a deputy assistant to the president was never entirely clear, apparently is in trouble with the law over a charge of "firearm or ammunition abuse." The warrant, first reported in Hungarian online outlet 444, was issued on Sept. 17, 2016, prior to Trump's election.

    That means that during the entire seven months Gorka spent in the White House, including when meeting with Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó in Washington last March, an arrest warrant was pending overseas.

    Details about the reasoning behind the warrant are sparse: The Hungarian police's website only notes the date it was issued, the charge, and that it was filed with the Budaörs police station in Budapest. 444 noted that the charge could have resulted from an incident as far back as 2009. The police station did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed News' request for comment.

    Gorka declined to comment. "Don't waste your time," he said when reached by phone. "I don't talk to BuzzFeed, thank you." After this story's publication, Gorka noted on Twitter that he moved to the US in 2008 while not denying that the warrant exists.

    Gorka's affinity for guns is well-known. He told Recoil magazine in November that he packs a pistol — along with a knife and tourniquet — every day. In February 2016, he had a gun confiscated after attempting to bring it through Washington's Reagan National Airport.

    Oh good hell... People will die!

    Feinstein warns people will die if the government shuts down

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein warned Wednesday that when the federal government shuts down "people die, accidents happen" and it's hard to assess what the impact will be when "necessary functions cease."

    If marital infidelity, affairs with porn stars, and sexual assault can't weaken evangelical support for Trump, maybe this can:

    I feel unclean for having done so, but I read the 2011 interview of Stormy Daniels about her affair with Drumpf and it's interesting in a tawdry way ("I can describe his junk perfectly!" No thanks!). The WSJ reports that Trump's lawyer set up an LLC a few weeks before the election to channel money to Stormy which may have preserved his election chances. But then, if shooting someone on Fifth Avenue wouldn't dissuade his supporters (I thought that was absurd originally, but now I believe it's true for probably half his base), I suppose scoring with a busty porn actress might actually redound to his benefit. Indeed, her attributes probably have Goatnapper wearing a MAGA hat around Rockland for the first time.

    Until this quote, I had no idea who Stormy Daniels was or is in terms of the porn industry. Thanks for the clarification and for sharing with us your amazing expertise in such matters.

    "Guitar groups are on their way out, Mr Epstein."

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.
