Treat your employees with respect. Pay them a respectable wage with benefits. Look out for them and they will look out for you and your business. If you are a faceless megalo-corp that just hires and fires peoplemeat all day then expect to have your store pillaged and burned.

I think you are on to something with all of these. For medicare, I don't think the problem is how much we spend but how much healthcare costs. Healthcare prices are actually set by a group of doctors called the Relative Value Update Committee (RVUC) that meets every 4 months. The meetings are in total secret and if you do get an invite to attend then you have to sign legal paperwork swearing you won't leak what you saw and heard. Here is one scam they run: the balloons used to do a sinus procedure cost $2600 each so the RVUC valued the cost of the materials for the procedure at NUMBER_OF_SINUES*2600 when only one balloon is typically used for all of the sinuses in a procedure. This is how these values get set and there appears to be ZERO oversight.

Banning skinny models definitely would help fix the problem. I'm normally against such type of regulation but when the common person is blasted in the face by constant advertising in every form imaginable 24/7 then i tend to fall on the side of regulation.

It's not like the average person can moderate the amount of advertising that rapes their eyeballs and subconcious every day.

Newsflash, dickbags:
US intelligence services have ALWAYS been fucking awful. I don't care how many Jason Bourne movies you have watched, US intel has been shit since the day it started as the OSS. Please take the time to read the book, Legacy Of Ashes and you can begin to see what a clownshow US intelligence services have been for the past 60+ years.


What sin has not been committed in the name of efficiency?
