Name a single law that was ever repealed by a president? Can't find one? Look here: http://blog.constitutioncenter.org/…/constitution-check-do…/. Wake up idiots and learn how our government works before you vote for anybody!

Businesses do not exist to provide you a life - they exist to make a profit. It is not malicious to close up shop. If so then it was likewise malicious for you to close up shop. Instead of bitching you should see it as an opportunity to get back into to business and fill the void. That's what a true capitalist would do. You just bitch and moan... Business is about competition. Just because you had little to no competition before was just lucky for you. Now you have no competition again. The wise person would quickly establish a business and one will. So quit yo bitching!
If you need to drive 40 miles to buy and onion then be smart about it and fill up your shopping bags. Ain't nobody done told you to live in bumfuck nowhere - that was your choice! I'm sick of the whiners and complainers.
The world’s largest retailer is shutting many of its stores this week, leaving many to wonder what life after Walmart will be like.

If the logic of "well you benefited because we, the union, negotiated a contract and you got the benefit without paying union dues", would it not follow that, assume a good deal was struck, the company also benefited? Should they be forced to pay? What about the community? Should they have to pay too? How about the customers and consumers? Surely they benefited? We should make all these people pay the union's dues. Yeah that's the ticket - have everybody chip in, because it's good so since we provided some goodness we get the opportunity to pick your pocket!

Thankfully SCOTUS said no.
In oral arguments, conservative justices criticize mandatory fees to public employee unions

From "ForumDave" the Corvette Forum (Proper attribution: http://www.corvetteforum.com/…/3758030-twas-the-vette-befor…):

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the garage,
there wasn’t a site of a Ford or a Dodge.
My C7 was covered with love and with care
Sitting safely on it's lift, high up in the air.

The wrenches were nestled all snug in their drawers
And the dust was cleaned off my new Race Deck floors.
My wife was asleep upstairs in our bed
While visions of s-curves danced in my head.

When out in my drive there arose such a clatter
I sprang from my stool to see what was the matter.
Straight to the homlink inside of my coupe
I pressed so I could see outside to my stoop.

The moon shone brightly on my lawn and my walk
With the scene in my drive, I could barely even talk.
My eyes how they burned, my ears how they rang
There stood Santa with a broke down Mustang!

"Forum Dave", he said, "I'm in need of your help.
I read all your posts, and I need one more elf!
I'll never make the night in this bucket of rust,
What do you have that'll leave 'em in dust?"

"To the Forum!", I yelled, "that's what we'll do,
This job is too big for just me and for you
On Crabby, on Jluke, on Hankman and Lance,
On Zipity, On Slief we can't take a chance!"

"For the first time ever, your Vette may see snow,
But Santa needs backup, we all have to go!"
And placing the pedals straight down to the floor,
Our Toy Run took off with a deafening roar!

We programmed our Navs to see which way was best,
The coupes headed north, the verts all went west.
DSOMonster, of course, got stuck in the snow,
But one call to On-Star and he was ready to go.

Christmas Carols played through the XM Receivers
While Khoeysr got chased by retrievers
RFLinkup looked at Santa who was holding his pipe,
"No smoking in my car, not on your life!"

The stockings filled up, the presents piled high
"The Forum came through", Santa said with a sigh.
If these had been Vipers or worse even Porsche
This situation, I'm sure, would have been worse.

"Your job is complete", Santa said as he stood,
"I'm proud of you all, you all done real good.
You look very tired, but before you can flop,
See if Kerbeck will open their great detail shop.

Out came the Zaino and the Lambskin cloth gloves
And we all set about the work that we love
Then I heard Santa say, as he went into the night
"Merry Christmas to all, that vette is alright!"

"Hold on Santa, you could use a new sled,
I've got some Zs in stock, what's your favorite Red?
That LT4 engine has enough torque to go
Over Mountain, through valley in rain or in snow"

"They all look real nice", Santa said with a smile,
"and must say I've wanted one for quite a while.
Mrs. Claus can't drive stick, but that shouldn't hurt
Though one things for certain, it must be a vert!"

Merry Christmas everybody!

It's simple... "They are based on fundamental economic reasoning—that when you raise the price of something, in this case labor, less of it will be demanded, or in this case hired". 
In The Wall Street Journal, David Neumark says the evidence is piling up that higher minimum wages kill jobs.

Right on! The US keeps trying to impose its laws onto other sovereign countries and we have no right to do that. Additionally, as this lawyer lady says, we have no legal duty here.

No Dan, I was saying that not everybody in the tea party is that stupid nor is every liberal. It's more stupid vs smart not one group of people vs another group of people. Also people often seem to judge the whole group based on a few radical idiots who make the news (e.g. Trump is running republican but by and large most republicans are not at all like him).

If you're illiterate fear not! You can still work as a driver for UPS. Apparently they're not required to be able to read!

An obituary:

Bill, 46, encountered an unhandled exception in his core operating system which prematurely triggered a critical stop condition, on Wednesday. Diagnostics indicated multi cascading hardware failures as the root problem. Though his hardware has been decommissioned, Bill's application has been migrated to the cloud and has been re purposed to run on a virtual machine on an infinite loop... EOL

Maybe I should update my will...

Actually no, if you said what Trump said in the workplace odds are you wouldn't get fired. But besides that - Trump's a boss and by that I mean he's nobody else's employee so nobody can fire him.
Hillary Clinton fired back with humor after GOP frontrunner Trump mocked his rival with crude insults and a vulgar term used to describe the male anatomy.

Nice place. Good beer. I really love the firecracker shrimp here. And the craft beers are wonderful. Trying the Firestone Honey Blonde.
