Looks like a solution to the illegal immigrants problem.  They can repair the buildings for their room and board in the buildings as they live in them.   Lock the doors from the outside and provide beds, tools, food, medicine, and repair materials.  Any time they want to leave there is a bus to Mexico.
Hundreds of shopping malls across the U.S. have...

Tom Perkins is getting a lot of hostility over his comparison of the hatred faced by rich to the hatred faced by Jews in Nazi Germany.

His detractors argue against Perkins's comparison of the holocaust; but such comparison is absent from his argument. His actual words are correct and do not mention the holocaust but rather compare to Kristallnacht.  The Nazis did use class warfare and envy to vilify the success of the Jewish community.  This same Nazi mentality is seen today in our President, the liberals and the Occupiers who call for us to move against the 1% to correct a supposed Income Inequality.

Anyone who knows history will know Tom Perkins's comparison to be true. No doubt Walt Mossberg and his ilk support the hatred against the 1% and know that they must distance their movement from this correct comparison to the Nazis or see their efforts fail.

Unfortunately, our public schools do such a poor job of teaching that history is known by too few. People should be made aware of other precursors to the holocaust such as the removal of religious freedom, disarming of the citizens by the state, the institution of new police powers and the ruling by fiat expressed by Obama's use of and threat to use Executive Orders.

Do not support the hatred and hate speech being thrown out by the left. The only way to help our nation is to promote success through business. No nation has ever taxed its way to wealth.  Successful business owners are the only way to get our own citizens back to work and to regain the strength we have lost so recently.  Then from a position of strength, wealth and prosperity we can aid our deserving allies.

I will have to try Digg again.  I used to like it but it became far too unfriendly.  Just wasn't an enjoyable place to go.

More on the "science" front.

Again today science has discovered common sense and published it.  I learned this stuff before I was three. 
University of Sussex researchers claim that the movement is so important that, if its ears are covered up, another horse struggles to know what it is thinking.

There is a troubling trend in journalism.  The following are excerpts with emphasis added of lines from an article about "science".  Ostensibly science is about facts and observed truths.  But this article hedges any statement that could support the headline; except of course the headline itself hedges with a '?' at the end.  Yellow journalism is not journalism at all.

 The only definitive  statement in the entire article is "Ants are changing the environment," which could be said with equal authority by my 9 year old nephew.


Ants MAY be cooling the Earth...

A long-term experiment ... SUGGESTS....

CERTAIN ant species "weather" minerals in order to secrete calcium carbonate... and removes a tiny bit of carbon dioxide gas 

Dorn's ... experiment shows that ants APPEAR to break down the minerals 50 to 300 times faster...

According to Dorn, the ants MAY BE scavenging calcium and magnesium from the minerals and using these elements to make limestone. 

... the insects MAY trap carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, in the rock, the report said. 

The transformation COULD take place when ants lick sand grains and stick them on the walls of their nests, but Dorn said the process is truly a scientific mystery.

This cyclist had at least 4 seconds warning not to approach this horse.

Corporations are in the goal of profits.  This is their job and they are not evil for doing their job well.

The US government is evil for failing to protect American citizens.  You propose a plan that would possibly increase jobs in America by 1 million.  If the government cracked down on illegal aliens and the hiring of them we could free up 15 million jobs held by illegal aliens.  Just by protecting the citizens, enforcing the borders and enforcing our laws.

An American corporation might pay a foreign worker in a foreign land $1.60 or even $3.00 an hour.  This is still less than the illegal aliens send out of the US.  Currently the federal minimum wage is 7.25 an hour and there is a push going on to make it $15.00.  An illegal worker in the US might send half his pay out of the country and businesses here can pay him more under the table than they can pay a citizen above the table.  For each hour of work, we lose more money from an illegal working here that sends it out of the country than we do for a foreign worker.  If the minimum wage is increased then even more illegals will be hired as Americans will not be able to compete.

Buy Made In The USA is a good intention that paves the road to hell.  Without knowing that product was made by Americans, I'll choose to do business with a Corporation that has its goals of keeping profits here in America.

o.k experience but not family friendly. first poster off front lobby is of a nude woman. If you are o.k. with that; the place is clean and my ears were not ringing when I left. It is much more handicapped friendly. Arrive early if you have a wheelchair. The back row is taken fast and there isn't another place for a wheelchair to go. There is a single occupant handicap accessible restroom.

All the criticisms I have read here are from intolerant, hateful, hypocrites. Nothing else to call people who dictate what it is to be a Christian, how to be a Christian or quote the Christian verses and all while not being a Christian.

The best german food and a quaint market. This place is one of those hidden gems that should be enjoyed while you can. I fear the recipes will be lost when this place closes or changes hands. All of the meats are fresh and the pastries are as light as the meats are flavorful. Try the German potato salad.

The food is good but not worth the money. Problems with this place: all experience has been in drive-thru It's impossible to order some items because they aren't on the menu. If I order Biscuits and Gravy I am asked how many eggs I want. ??? I heard someone else order Garlic Shooters so I ordered some and they want to know if I want garlic sauce, garlic mayo or garlic with ketchup. I ask what is in the garlic sauce and they tell me mayo and garlic. How is that different from garlic mayo? she doesn't know. I ordered three shooters and am given a total at the window of over $4.00. She then asks if I wanted cheese and fries... "no". Finally they get the total worked out but when I get the shooters they all have cheese. None of the breakfast stuff has prices STILL. I think they've been open for over a month. Tea is posted on the menu board as 1.49 for all sizes but they constantly ring 1.99 for a large and have to fix it. Ordered Biscuits and Gravy and they took that. Then I ordered Sausage and Egg biscuit and was told they had no sausage. They are supposed to put sausage in the gravy but they are o.k. with just making it wrong. They didn't have sausage for the next 4 days. Finally when they had sausage I came back to order the sandwich and was told they had no biscuits. This was the last time we went. Way too much trouble for the length of time to wait in line and end up with disappointment. On the plus side, the staff here is amazingly courteous. Also, what food we've been able to sample has been superior to other places. We do like the Chili 5-way but for some reason it is smaller than the Chili-Mac and costs $2 more. If not for the taste and staff I wouldn't have bothered trying so many times. Oh, and $2.50 for a large drink in drive thru with no refills? It isn't even mixed well; brand new place and the soda machines don't mix drinks well. Get a clue people.

Their idea of a serving for four people is pitiful. My wife and I had the The Ingredient specialty and the Phoenix Chicken. Between the eight servings we left nothing and were not really full. Nice place for a date though.
