Walmart touts $1,000 cash bonus for employees — but there's a catch

http://www.businessinsider.com/walmart- ... les-2018-1

At least those fired employees are still eligible for that bonus.

If nothing else Trump has awoken y'all up to how drymounted up your politics is...

Where things have sunk to the point you choose celebrities over actual politicians and where you actually believe celebrities are the best you can do to finding solutions to complex questions that affect hundreds of millions of people's lives...and that's just domestically.

Oprah / Vanilla Ice 2020 ticket sound ok?

Yup, one time payments look great from the outside, but they are just window dressing. As noted this is a very small drop in the bucket compared to the money the big corporations are getting from the tax cuts. Granted Walmart raised the minimum wage for all employees to $11 then closed a bunch of stores which basically offsets the raise.

I still think trump is only in it now to help himself, his family and his cronies make more money - both now and when he is out of the office.

Isn't that the goal of every politician?

Cornel West nails it...not for y'all I understand, but worth a read for some, hopefully.

The painful truth is there is no Donald Trump without Barack Obama, no neofascist stirrings without neoliberal policies – all within the imperial zone. Obama was the brilliant black smiling face of the American empire. Trump is the know-nothing white cruel face of the American empire.

Obama did not produce Trump, but his Wall Street–friendly policies helped facilitate Trump’s pseudo-populist victory. Obama’s reluctance to confront race matters in a serious and substantive manner did not cause the ugly white backlash, but Obama’s hesitancy did not help the opposition to white-supremacist practices.

And, more pointedly, both Obama and Trump – two different faces of the imperial meltdown – supported military buildups, wars against Muslim-majority countries, drone strikes, the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands and people, illegal imprisonments of innocent people, night raids on poor Muslim families, and inhumane detention camps. These war policies and war crimes have come back to devour what is left of America’s democratic soul.

Cornel West.

Cornel West, the self-proclaimed black prophet.

Who supported whackadoodle Jill Stein.

In case you haven't noticed, Cornel has officially gone off the deep end into official cuckooville.

But something tells me you are all too aware of this already.

So, yeah - won't be reading that trash.

Good try though!

P.S. - The disparity in the political beliefs you post over time is as wide as the gap between Mr. West's two front teeth.
