As Jane Smith said in the OP's thread, it's not the workers who cost the taxpayers, it's Walmart. Not paying their employees a living wage puts the burden on the taxpayers to make up the difference.

Walmart's low-wage workers cost U.S. taxpayers an estimated $6.2 billion in public assistance including food stamps, Medicaid and subsidized housing, according to a report published to coincide with Tax Day, April 15.

And that's just the direct cost of their business model of poor pay and benefits... Go past that and look at the local businesses they have essentially put out of business... supply chain issues... who knows what else... I'd wonder what the national cost becomes at that point...

Ok, here we go. You know the GOP is going to ise this as an excuse to start a last minute push to change voter ID laws. They've had 3+ years to enact these laws. They'll wait to the last minute again to keep as many disadvantaged voters from exercising their constitutional rights. I'm not opposed to requiring photo ID to vote, but I am.vehemently opposed to waiting until the last minute and people can't comply in time.

Meanwhile, in that backwards commonwealth once known as my home...

And, if someone gives you an opportunity to do something you want to do, you really shouldn't pass it up.

To save a life is to save all of humanity (Qu'ran)

They are like you. They are regular people caught up in the devastation of the now 6 year old Syrian Civil War.

They are 2900 strong, men and women, risking their lives daily as they rush into bombed buildings to save the people who remain in Syria.

They are The White Helmets.

"Formed in 2013, The White Helmets, also known as the Syria Civil Defense, is an organization of 2,900 civilians working in 120 centers across the country." (The White Helmets, a Netflix original documentary)

They've been nominated for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize. Voting ends soon...watch the documentary on Netflix and then sign the petition in support of this much deserved award.

The White Helmets of Syria have saved 60,000 lives and counting. They've just been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is how we help them win.

In the US, approximately 40% of farm grown food is thrown out, trucked from the farm straight to landfills. And yet, millions of people in the country are food insecure and hungry. (http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/almost-half-americas-food-go-waste/)

Facing the annual loss of about $299 million worth of food each year, the United Kingdom faces the same issue. The challenge is to get that food to people who need it.

And that's exactly what this store is doing.

There is a waste disposal crisis facing the world and it's spilling over into our oceans. One way to help solve the problem is for us to reduce our use of plastics. Another way is to faithfully recycle the plastics we do use. This company turns reclaimed plastic bottles found on the shoreline into yarns and fabrics.

#youredoingitright #reducereuserecycle
Bionic Yarn has transformed millions of bottles recovered from shorelines.

Life is full of surprises. Always strive to be one.
Introduction

I'm really only here for the conversations.  Period.

I was told I am a good conversationalist and people don't puke into paper bags when they look at me.  One would think that was meant as a compliment, but...

*************************************************************

Photographer, writer, music and book lover, sports nut, and mom. Happy to be living. Blessed with wonderful friends. Learning to live in acceptance, quiet, and peace.

I'm a very happy person who is has been blessed with some pretty awesome children.  I'm far from perfect...neither is my life...but lack of perfection frees us to explore all possibilities and to learn.


I believe that everything happens for a reason, even if we may never discover that reason.    Sometimes the most important reason is just the life lesson that comes with anything that happens.  We should endeavor to learn as much as possible from every situation.  

I also believe we all have a responsibility to each other, stranger and friend alike.  It is the fabric that is our humanity and without it we are nothing.

*****************************************

Be thankful in all circumstances.

*****************************************

Choose your words carefully...your deeds with compassion.

*****************************************

I love sports, am a die-hard Philly Sports Phan (and hometown Philly girl) who loves lacey things, dresses and cute shoes, but who is very comfortable in my team jerseys.  I'm more likely to be direct and if sarcasm were clothing, I'd be a mummy.  I don't suffer fools well, but I'm incredibly loyal.  I don't have a problem admitting when I'm wrong and love a debate mostly because of what I will learn from it.  There is so much to be learned...I never want to stop.

I think that the exchange of opinions, ideas, and information is vitally important to a vibrant and progressive society.  I will always welcome debate on my posts; however, if your idea of debate is to label people and make disparaging comments about them, please don't circle me and don't comment on my posts.

If you don't like the things I post, please don't circle me and just scroll on by.  The beauty of the Internet is that we don't have to see things we don't like.

*************************************

PLEASE NOTE:  If you are married or in a relationship with someone, don't tell me you think I'm hot, pretty, sexy, smart, adorable, amazing, or any other empty platitude; don't send me any pictures of yourself, including, but not limited to, body parts or naked pictures; don't flirt with me; don't drop sexual innuendo into conversations; don't be suggestive; don't tell me you'd like to meet up with me one day or that you look forward to it if it isn't in the context of the topic being discussed - I don't want to date you, I promise; if I post that I'm going to be in a certain city for work and I'd like to know who might be up for hanging out, don't assume I'm looking to get laid and that I'm interested in you that way - I promise you I am not; don't +1 all my photos - it won't impress me; and don't use endearments when speaking to me - ever.  If you are looking for a date, then go date your wife/girlfriend...and if you don't want to date your wife/girlfriend, then be a man and free her from that bondage.  If you can't abide by these rules, then uncircle me...break them and you will be blocked.

This is my go-to place for pizza! It is delicious every single time! Very reasonable price ($12 for a large, 16 inch pie). Staff is very friendly, too.

I love this little market. They have a good selection, prices that are close to the big chain grocery store, and a very friendly, helpful staff. They have a pickle barrel, too!!! If you're new, keep in mind there is a $10 minimum for credit/debit card transactions.

Neighborhood bar that's as old as the town..ok, not really, but The Greeks has been here forever. Typical pub grub, fun crowd, live music and other entertainment...and when there's no official entertainment, the locals are a pretty entertaining crew.
