Your employer is not, in most cases, your friend.

Your employer is never your friend. If you have a friend you also do business with, you have to separate those affairs, otherwise it can get very problematic. I know someone who doesn't speak to his own brother any more, because they had a company together that went bad.

They're like the goddamned Westboro Baptist Church, trying to leech publicity from anything that makes the news. They are not, and have never been an environmentalist organization. They're a marketing organization, that sucks up money by guilt peddling.

If you want to help the environment, then donate to a local group in your area, the Sierra Club, Ducks Unlimited, or any of dozens of others.

They bomb hospitals that UN personnel have allowed Hamas to use as weapons depots, and they call and warn people to get out of them first.

Taking Hamas propaganda at face value is a good way to make an ass of yourself.

The minimum wage affects those who are unable to earn some arbitrarily-set cutoff price. Growth of any jobs that pay that much or more is entirely beside the point.

Statists like to pretend that they're helping the poor with law that says "here you go, you get to earn at least this much!", but what these statues really do is say is "UNLESS you can earn this much, no job for you!"
