NO WAY - who would hire Ryan, Blago or Quinn after talking to them?? - only a circus business - 3 Stooges impersonators.

WarCry - New Illinois law bans employers from conducting background checks on interviewees - Quincy, IL News
That's interesting, because I've worked for 3 different Fortune 500 companies, and every time I've interviewed FIRST, and then, if they wanted to hire me, that's when they did the background checks. So, major, successful businesses in their actual hiring practices versus guy on the internet saying it should be done differently.. Which to believe, which to believe.....

Interview time is much more costly than a criminal background check. Successful people know that.

I am much more cynical than I am naive. There is such a thing as "contempt" which is what should be used here. Disturbances by cell phone users happens all across the planet - no reason why court rooms should be exempt.

Strawman: Is He REALLY Mad as Hell?

2 months ago by Strawman

I don’t know about you but I’m feeling a whole lot better about the most recent developments on the Veteran’s Administration debacle now that Barack Obama is aware we have problems in that department.  I was SO relieved that the president said, “He was mad as hell and would get to the bottom of it,” AGAIN.  Why, the president actually sent a senior staff member to Arizona to help the V.A. get their act together.  That ONE GUY is going to make a difference!  And once he’s done we’ll get the usual, “it’s been investigated, nothing to see here” rhetoric that comes as standard equipment.  Count on it.   

The video montage shows that when the droppings hit the fan, Obama reaches into his usual bag of recycled responses and we end up getting more of what we’ve been getting from the president for years; lies.  

The list of the Obama scandals is as long as the Affordable Care Act and it's getting longer each day.  The pandering to the special interests while, at the same time, ignoring veterans and those still on active duty is unacceptable and un-called for.  Do you now understand why I’ve called the Obama administration the “get-even-with-Whitey” group for years here?  Is some of this starting to sink in?

It’s my hope that with Memorial Day coming up and the Fishing for Freedom event just around the bend, each of us take some time to pay homage to those who have served our great country.  Please do so while there’s still time—and while we’re still allowed to.

And if, by chance, you are not mad as hell about what this administration has done to our veterans, and our country then my heart goes out to you.  My fear is that you’ll wake up long after it’s too late to do something about it.
