    Business has been regulated into inactionable positions by liberal nonsense bills like this.

     

    [/QUOTE]

     


    Because lots of businesses clearly can't be trusted to play by the rules and treat people fairly...

    ...especially those rules in which they're supposed to "self-enforce".

     

    The last recession was a direct result of this.

     

     

    [/QUOTE]

    Sure, keep justifying your never ending/creeping socialism as others can't seem to behave according to your socialist rules.

    The last ressession was a direct result of government policies (lend lend lend/borrrow borrow borrow), not business as an institution.

    [/QUOTE]

    Then you're misinformed.  The recession was caused in part by certain businesses playing fast and loose with the rules, cheating their customers and misleading their stockholders by trying to say they were on the up-and-up.

    They weren't.  And all the specious, desperate cries of "socialism!" don't change that.

    And while the government was terribly ineffective at regulating the financial sectors (i.e., enforcing the laws already in place), the regulators have never been given the proper tools for the job.

    Despite what you think, capitalism does not mean "if they didn't see it, we didn't do it" or being able to cheat, graft and bribe their way to record profits and off-shore tax shelters.

    I haven't seen it in over a decade, but I think it may be the one where Kramer decides the expressway should be more leisurely so he pours black paint (or other stuff) over the road. Things happen and somehow something done to the road by Kramer is connected to newman's mail truck catching fire.

    [/QUOTE]

    I remember that episode. Very funny.

    Cannot believe how Seinfeld episodes are embedded in my long term memory.

    Of course ask me what I had for dinner 2 nights ago...maybe I will remember...maybe not so much.

    There is a lesson to be learned there. Think I know it.

    Will take some time to digest who these people are and the longer version of what they are saying.

    It is only one opinion, but seemed to cover more than the knee-jerk reaction from the left or the right.

    Kramer had to remove the black paint he used on the roads white lane markers. He spilled a drum of paint remover all over the road. Newman was driving and ran over a sewing machine that was sparking when he drove over the flammable paint remover on the road. I forget the reference on how the sewing machine ended up in the road.

    Right.  So, all business? your use was unqualified.  I was merely adding a qualifier that you meant all business, i.e. the institution of business.  Maybe a poor choice of words, institution, but at least I'm not tar and feathering all of business like you.

    Ouch! A little personal there Andie don't you think?

     

     

    [/QUOTE]

    newman,

     

    This is the 2nd thread he did that today. 

    So yes it was personal on both sides.

    The 1st time I went through in a nice way the backgrounds of the 3 lawyers who regularly post here. WDYWN, Reuben and myself.

    None of us fit that bill. WDYWN did a whole post about lawyers.

    Every profession has its good and bad apples. 

    He will not even answer what he does to keep a roof over his head.

    That insult twice in one day was aimed at myself and WDYWN. For no reason.

    You know I have never taken a swipe at you. Ever. 

    If you said the same thing, I would politely address you because you are newman, Someone I have begun to have discussions with and respect the way you handle yourelf on this board.

    You have been respectful to me. I certainly have noticed and appreciate it. 

    In fact I love it when a poster who leans the other way starts to have discussions with me versus trying to score points.

    That is why I gave you this long explanation. I did not want to lose any respect I may have garnered with you. I hope it does not get ugly with him. 

    I will be in the hospital most of tomorrow then recovering for a day or two. 

    Maybe that small break will let things cool off.

    I hope you and I are okay newman.

    Andie

    [/QUOTE]


    Reading backwards I better understand why you stood your ground. Good luck with your recovery. No change here between us as far as I'm concerned.

    [/QUOTE]

    newman,

    I appreciate you took the time to read backwards so you could see what was going on and make your own evaluation based on the posts.

    Thank you so much for your good wishes.

    I am very glad we are where we were. Thank you for telling me. 

     

    Btw, for what it is worth, I like this "newman" avatar better then the one you have been using. Last one "newman" looked a tad smug, IMO. And yes, I know you do not look like that. You are probable 6 feet tall, full head of dark hear, dark eyes...eye candy for women. Maybe a George Clooney look alike (My movie crush.)

    I am a big fan of "Seinfeld". Was a point I believe I could pretty much do the dialogue of every episode. Just like, for me, the original 3 years of "Star Trek". Learned those as an adult. Only other Star Trek I really liked was the next one with Patrick Stewart. Liked the moral factor the most.

    Maybe you already know, but Kramer/Michael Richards is finally returning to TV. He is in a sitcom with Kirsties Alley and Rhea Perlman. 

    Kramer was not my favorite Seinfeld character but, I think Richards punished himself too much for the "racist" rant that drove him into seclusion all these years.

    [/QUOTE]

    Thanks Andie, there are not a lot of good pics of Newman but I will change it up from time to time. As far as eye candy....maybe, but Clooney I am not. Who is? I did see the trailers for Michael Richard's new show. Not sure when or if it started yet.

    Read it again.  I said "lots of businesses" engage in shady practices.

    These practices (in terms of finance) are a big part of what caused the recession.

    So, I said nothing about "business as an institution" or even "all" businesses.

    Point being that said sketchy behaviors are what need to stop, as per Ms. Warren and the subject of the thread.

    Hiring is a discriminating process, period.  You want to hire the person best for the job, not meet some induced criteria sent down from the Feds, or hire obvisouly unqualified people.  

    As far as this specific issue, credit reports.  Hmm.  Before I trust someone with handling some portion of my company's assets, might it be reasonable for me to see how they handle theirs?

    newman,

    Thank you for confirming what the episode was.

    I really see now how brilliant that show was in all respects. At least for me, to have a memory of every singles episode of a sitcom still embedded in my memory means from Larry David, to the main actors, something magic was produced for my generaton.

    I can clearly rememer how Jerry would say the name "newman" like it was yesterday.

    I cannot say I identified with Elaine...the only female character. Or any of them. How could 4 people be so self centered and okay with it. Plus, I would never ever do that to my hair. That was criminal. 

    Btw, the "Soup Nazi" was just in Boston, helping to raise money for a charity.
