    President Trump is working around the clock during the government shutdown trying to negotiate with Pelosi and Schumer to secure border wall funding. The Democrats however, are partying at a beach resort in Puerto Rico on day 22 of the government shutdown. The Democrats don’t care about the 800,000 federal workers who are currently not receiving a paycheck. Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was spotted hanging out with a bikini-clad “colleague” on the beach in Puerto Rico three weeks into the shutdown without a care in the world. The Hispanic Caucus of liberal Democrats is holding their retreat at a posh...

    Have you ever wondered why our Barack Obama, not noted for devotion to hard work in his previous jobs as a law associate, community organizer, state senator, and U.S. senator, raced around America, risking life, limb, and laryngitis, crying "change we can believe in," and begging the voters to send him to the White House as the President of the United States? It wasn't because Mr. Obama wanted to be the first African-American chief executive, and his wife to be the first African-American First Lady. It wasn't because the job paid $400,000 a year.

    by Mark Finkelstein August 30, 2006 - 08:59 The Globe didn't go totally Mel Gibson's 'Passion' on us this morning. But Dan Wasserman's cartoon does show workers being hung by the hands on rising corporate profits. This was the Globe's subtle way of commenting on news it reported yesterday that wages aren't rising as fast as profits. The Globe predictably overlooks the fact pointed out in this Investor's Business Daily article that: "Most of us aren't paid just in "wages" but in wages and benefits. And when the two are put together, total compensation is up 8.7% since 2003, for...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- About 8 percent of Ohio Wal-Mart employees enroll for Medicaid for themselves or their children, costing the state about $11 million, data from a state report released Friday indicate. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and McDonald's Corp. and its franchises are the biggest employers of Ohio Medicaid recipients, even though they represent just 1 percent of the program's costs, the state Department of Job and Family Services said after analyzing the rolls at the request of media outlets and lawmakers. The world's largest retailer and fast food giant also accounted for the most employed people who get food stamps....

    A Stranger in Your Queue If your Netflix movies take too long to arrive, you may be sharing your subscription with your mail carrier. * By Eric Wolff JIan Zhong Li loved Netflix. After a long night sorting mail at a Queens processing center, he could settle in at his Brooklyn home with all sorts of movies he’d never seen in the theater. Li especially loved Netflix because the DVDs come in well-labeled red envelopes that make them easy to identify amid the bulk junk. It also makes them so much easier to steal. When postal inspectors followed Li to...
