Re: Politics & Current Events

Quite honestly I don't give a horsefeathers what my "image" is to people here. People already seem to have formed opinions on me based on some stupid comments I said literally a decade ago, so what's the point? Bud....you've said enough stuff just under this new handle for people to form ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Look, I get that this is the "Donald Trump is a monster and I'm going to post everything I can to remind people of that!!!!" thread and I tend to avoid saying/posting things because I realize the audience, but sometimes the leftism here is a bit extreme and I just can't stop myself. You t...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Yup. Real talk, Mizzou: like people are saying, when your only commentary on this sort of thing is to zero in on the outlier and say, with ridiculous hyperbole, that THAT is the thing you find "sick and twisted," as opposed to, y'know, the scores of awful hate crime horsefeathers happenin...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Re: Cubs cancelled my season tickets - anyone else?

Mine hasnt changed since an email I got on March 23; 18,902. Yeah I'm guessing they just haven't updated after the scalpers who got theirs revoked. That and maybe some old people dying is all you'll be moving up this year. I wouldn't go that far. The big jump in prices might push a chunk of people ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

It does seem a little... crummy... for the Cubs to say "here, use Stubhub to resell your tickets - don't use anything else - t's incredibly easy and all you have to do is wham bam boom and then done!" but then after they view the data on Stubhub, they cancel people's accounts due to excess...

Re: Politics & Current Events

sure, it's being utilized to a certain degree, but why not on a larger scale? Because it's a big change and not one that will just happen all it once. Companies like to pilot things before rolling them out on a larger scale. As an example, Target tried the self check out thing with one register in ...

why haven't companies done this, yet, then? I mean, if the technology is there why not use it? What's stopping companies from doing this?

Replacing people with kiosks is already happening, or don't they have the self check out where you live? It's got nothing to do with being vindictive or whatever. Every business tries to cut costs.

So do I.
I don't think consultants are overly worried about the minimum wage though.

Right. Of course not. Just responding to Derwood's bizarre post.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Well, number one, if you force fast food employers to double their labor costs they're going to just get rid of employees and automate things. It's a zero sum game - you tell a business that they have to take their monthly labor cost of $10,000 and turn it into $15,000 or $20,000 what do you think ...
