Comment We already have our preview trial (Score 1) 737

In the form of Micheal Mann (of the discredited hockey stick) vs Mark Levin. Mann sued Levin (actually both the National Review and Competitive Enterprise Institute that Levin put forth his opinions via) for defamatory statements and fraud due to Levin calling Mann a fraud. Of course Mann put forward in his initial press release about the suit that he was awarded the Nobel peace prize along with Gore...a blatant lie. Levin countersued for $10m and now it's going through the courts. Since Levin is counter suing, all of Mann's work is subject to criticism.

But you also have a entry level wage for teenagers do you not. IIRC, this is about 10-12$/hr.

Additionally, you also have some of the strictest immigration policies in the world. You can afford 17/hr when you don't have to worry about millions of people coming over your southern border who don't have much of an education and skills. (along with the government on your southern border is encouraging them to migrate so they don't have to take care of them).

Don't forget that Hillary was fired by the House Judiciary Committee investigating Watergate.

“Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” - Jerry Zeifman, chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee

But there's a difference between a specialized rental such as construction equipment and a common rental. When someone is renting a specialized tool that is used in their industry and they know they will need to rent it again, there is a underlying incentive to not treat it as complete crap.

There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom. -- Robert Millikan, Nobel Prize in Physics, 1923
