“There are people lined up out there for jobs,” said John Lyles, a vice president at Franklin, according to testimony by a plant manager in a successful lawsuit in Mississippi brought by four cushion workers who suffered severe nerve damage from the glue. “If they start dropping like flies, or something in that order, we can replace them today.”
The truly caring face of the Uber-Corporations of this world.
Interesting on this Easter Sunday morning to read that Four churches have joined forces to accuse the government of welfare payment cuts they say are unjust and target society’s most vulnerable.
The Easter criticism has come from the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Methodist and United Reformed Churches, and the Church of Scotland. They also want to see a change to “a false picture” of the poor as “lazy”.
So, blessed are the idle for theirs is the kingdom of manna. Blessed are the job dodgers for they shall inherit your taxes. The empty headed rabbiting of these socialists in dog collars can be contrasted with the clear headed Christianity expressed by Margaret Thatcher when she famously pointed out ..
“No-one would remember the Good Samaritan if he’d only had good intentions; he had money as well.”
These clerical clowns would ensure that the good Samaritan was forced to hand over his cash.
What do you make of this then?
A policewoman who answered a midnight call to a suspected burglary is suing the man who dialled 999 – because she tripped over a kerbstone. WPC Kelly Jones is seeking a potential five-figure payout after claiming the owner of a petrol station failed to keep her safe as she investigated the possible break-in.
So, if one calls the police for help and fails to keep them as safe as possible, one is liable to be sued? Fair enough, on that same basis, can the victim of the suspected burglary sue the police for failing to keep him as safe as possible? Each time a crime is committed, can any of us sue the police for a failure to prevent crime? Is this the sort of person who now “serves” us in the police? Wherein lies the biggest danger; with the burglar or the police?
Ronnie Biggs must wish he had become a eurocrat rather than a train robber since the scale of plunder is so much greater;
Savers with over 100,000 euros deposited in the Bank of Cyprus could now be hit for losses of up to 60 per cent, according to a central bank official and a senior finance ministry technocrat. The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they’re not authorized to publicly discuss details of the issue, said deposits over 100,000 euros at the country’s largest lender will lose 37.5 percent of their value after being converted into bank shares. They said that savers could then lose up to 22.5 per cent more, depending on an assessment by officials who will determine the exact figure aimed at restoring the troubled bank back to health.
So, 60% of your savings TAKEN in order to protect the Euro! Wow.
And if they can get away with it in Cyprus, they can do it anywhere. The precedent has now been set and the EU has established that it can raid YOUR deposits to the staggering scale of 60% in order to secure its own political agenda. The bit that disturbs me is the relative acquiescence of so many to this institutionalised theft. Those who are prudent, who save wisely, who invest well and who behave legally, are now the main prey of the Euro-elite.
Some on the left suggest that there are but a tiny minority of malingerers on Benefits. Really??
Nearly 900,000 people who were on incapacity benefit dropped their claim to the payments rather than undergo a tough medical test, latest government figures show. The statistics also revealed that some claimants cited conditions such as “blisters”, “sprains and strains” and “acne” as preventing them from having a job.
Need I say more?
First, line up your Peeps against the glass, one on top of the other. Yes, they are smashed against the glass a bit like prisoners riding into town on a bus. It’s OK. They are used to it.
Second, in the middle of the big vase, place a smaller vase and fill it with water. Put tulips in this vase.
Third, fill in any gaps with fake grass. This will help hold up the tulip stems and it will make the Peeps feel at home. They are bunnies, after all.
Because nothing says “seperation of church and state” like the president’s “Passover and Easter greeting”. A snippet, my emphasis:
“As Christians, my family and I remember the incredible sacrifice Jesus made for each and every one of us – how He took on the sins of the world and extended the gift of salvation. And we recommit ourselves to following His example here on Earth …”
Indeed, and let’s hope the president puts up, because this is not “following the example” of the Prince of Peace –
It’s sad to read that the Coalition has now thrown in the towel and rather than CUT welfare as it needs to for our future well being, it now says it will simply manage rate of increase;
Iain Duncan Smith has admitted that he is no longer seeking to cut Britain’s benefits bill and is simply “managing” the increase in handouts. The Work and Pensions Secretary said that, unlike other European nations, the “reality is that this country is not cutting welfare”. He added that “all those on benefits will still see cash increases in every year of this Parliament”.
We are Welfare central and this useless Coalition has shown it is gutless. The consequence is that slowly but surely we will move closer to Greece than Germany, with Debt consuming our national interest. In 2015, I believe Labour will get back into Government promising even MORE GENEROUS welfare provisions and those people in the UK who can be bothered to go out to work in the wealth creating sector will find they have to work longer for less, as they are taxed to the hilt in order for the massive welfare bill to be funded.
