Companies want recent college grads because they know they're willing to work for less, not because they believe them to be more talented.
I think it's more than just accepting lower salary, but also accepting more abuse. A 23-year-old is less likely to have other major commitments (in particular, a family). It's a lot more difficult to force someone to work 60+ hours per week when they have to be home to help take care of the kids.
Unless you happen to be 49 years old...
At which point you wait for a second, then answer "older". Besides, don't you have anything better to do on your birthday?
I just pointed out that neoliberalism is to the left of classical liberalism, and thus is a left wing philosophy. (See the example I gave to the other guy about how it's wrong, generally speaking, to call Democrats communists.) Socialism is a different left wing philosophy. It falls to the left of neoliberalism and the far left of classical liberalism. But the existence of socialists doesn't make liberalism "not a left wing philosophy."
Saying that the Democrats are to the left of the Republicans doesn't make the Democrats "left", it only makes them "less right". There are some politicians who actually are left-wing (Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are two that have been in the news lately; Kucinich was the only one in the 2008 Democratic primaries), but most of the leadership of the Democratic party are not.
Keep in mind that authoritarianism is an orthogonal concept; you can have right-wing authoritarians (e.g. most current Republican politicians), and you can have left-wing authoritarians (usually what most people think Communism is, such as the USSR). As always, I point people to Political Compass.
Libertarianism is about the correct amount of regulation and no more.
Uh, no, "the correct amount of regulation and no more" is what everyone wants, there's just disagreement about how much is "correct". I've never met anyone that wants to create new regulations just for funsies.
I think there are good reasons Libertarianism has never been fully implemented anywhere.
I dunno, I hear Somalia is a Libertarian paradise these days.
...I have not voted R or D since 2004, except when Elizabeth Warren ran for Senate.
So, as of this point, neither of the parties is currently Left enough for you?
That's pretty much it. The United States has two major political parties: a right-wing party, and a far right-wing party.
I've seen the gamut, from firing people via text message to inviting them to a "breakfast meeting" and having security box up their stuff while they're in the meeting room (and not giving them breakfast, either).
I don't know if "gamut" is the word you were looking for. Both of those things are pretty crappy ways to fire someone.
Full disclosure: my first two cars were station wagons. They were great in high school and college for carrying a group of 8 people somewhere.
Not to mention that the electric car costs more per mile to drive over it's life and is less comfortable, less safe and limited in range.
You're right, you shouldn't mention any of that unless you can back it up with something from reality.
Ending the monopoly could fix this silliness.
And that's why we need to allow the merger of Time Warner Cable and Comcast.
Seems a big mistake to hinge this on intent. It needs to be clear what actions are punishable, not what state of mind.
Intent is a huge part of the legal system. It's the difference between murder and manslaughter.
