    Do people know if they’ve been unfriended? I unfriended over half of my friends because their posts consistently didn’t match my interests….But, I didn’t tell them I unfriended them.

  2. chartist says:

    With all the guns in this country, there’s corporate impunity coming….It will be isolated stories for a great while. But I fully expect a revolution in the decades to come.

    what do they mean by knock an hour off the work day? If I follow all of their recommendations, that doesn’t mean I get to leave at 4pm…..And really, schedule meetings after lunch when I am so dog tired I can’t make a complete sentence……There is no cutting an hour out of the workday….Even if you accomplish everything by 3pm, you darn well better look busy at least till 5!!!

    And even more important . . . increasing company sales and profit, and currying favor with voters . . .

    “Boeing says it does not know where Congress would get the money to pay for the Growlers — only that it should come up with the funds somehow. The planes serve a crucial function, company officials say, jamming enemy radars so that U.S. planes can attack without being detected. . . . The company has lined up support in Congress, including Sen. Claire McCaskill (D), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. She represents Missouri, the state where the Growlers are manufactured, but said her support has nothing to do with parochial interests.”
