Is It Discrimination Returning From The Past

My Opinion By Bob L.
Dec. 20 2013

As we go into another year, discrimination keeps getting closer to the 1950, but no one seems to see that, they only see what is happening for some sports game, if people put as much energy in to protecting this Country as they do for some sports game, we would not have Government taking over all Legal Americans lives.

Where discrimination comes in is Government is passing laws for some and crucifying others, a good example is the First Amendment, Freedom of Speech when some one makes a comment about Gays, Minorities, they want to plaster it all over the news, or take them to court, but when it is on the other side it is not alright.

By doing this, the Government is telling these people go after any one who says any thing bad about you, or denies you service, when did it become a law that you do not have the right to follow your beliefs or the right to deny service or say how you feel personally, if that is the case then NO ONE can deny you service or say any thing about any one, if that is the case, then you have to stop these double standards laws, and enforce laws to all, no exceptions for who you are.

This Double Standard is also used when it comes to HATE Groups, like the CCC, the Skin Heads, or any one that goes after any one or Group, but when it comes to a Church Group that does what these other groups do, they are not classified as a hate group by the Government, this means that out Government is out of control, but what do the people do about it, nothing but complain about not making enough money.

If the people would break that mirror in front of them they would see that this Country is slowly being taken over by Dictators and why, because people are so wrapped up at looking at them selves in the mirror to see what is going on, Americans have to start taking care of this Country before it is lost, once gone always gone. 

1378017_351915341610802_1560812093_nThis is what America has become, give me give me money, money more money so I can buy, buy, buy, then go out and file Bankruptcy because you did not give me more money to buy the fanciest thing on the market, and by this greed is now starting to bring down this Country by Tax, Tax, and more Taxes, you have people out there scraping for food and a place to call home that they can afford, while the greedy keep wanting more, NOW we have a Government that wants more control over the people while letting the rich have their way.

Merry Christmas and a Safe New Years to you all, and just remember after the first of the year, the more you make the more you will pay the Government Insurance Company, and the IRS for Penalties.

College Degrees the new High School Diploma

Comment By Bob L.

College Graduates Only

College Graduates Only

Boy talk about DISCRIMINATION, and who do we blame for it, ever since this administration got into office, discrimination HAS became the norm, when things finally had a good start on equal treatment, some will say that is not true, but just look around, Today, and Before, Obama got into office, I see more discrimination and profiling now than before, I am not talking about back in the 50’s and 60’s, I am talking about NOW, TODAY.

People have been laid off to make room for College Grads, so why should any one even go to K through 12, when a lot of people are not going to, or be able to afford to even go to College, they call this Profiling, and I thought that was Illegal along with Discrimination, that is what this Administration keeps telling every one.

The article makes the comment that college grads are dependable and it is not the money that they want, boy what a fabrication of the truth, every one that I knew that went to college went there was for the pay that goes with it, and just how many jobs are going to be available to them when they graduate, would you say ONE job out of every FIVE THOUSAND WHO GRADUATE.

This is Obama’s doings, Hire only returning military, and college, and tell every one else to go to hell, what is going to happen when the Government can no longer support people not working and paying Taxes, lets put it this way, how long can the Government Operate on an empty tank, Same as a Car out of gas, and an Electric car without electricity, and every one of them Obama is trying to put out of business.

Here is a comment by an article that I posted about a while back that also goes along with  this article today, this person says it right.

[Lbromes] [Laws should be made to protect HUMAN life and conditions. Spending time, resources, and energy on hunting down “illegal” Immigrants is a moral sin! There are hard working human beings not infringing on anyones rights, being thrown into prison using our tax dollars when, they other wise would be working helping our economy. NOT a fiscally responsible way to spend our hard earned resources. Our county was built by “illegal” immigrants. Unless you are a Native American you too are an “immigrant” It’s about human beings, not citizenship status. For you christians I have just one question, WWJD? Where’s the compassion Christ displayed for ALL living beings, especially human beings? We are forgetting its not us vs them. We are all in this race together!!! Lets stop all the pettiness and focus on what really matters, protecting human life and conditions for ALL!]

It Takes a B.A. to Find a Job as a File Clerk

New York Times
By CATHERINE RAMPELL | New York Times

ATLANTA —The college degree is becoming the new high school diploma: the new minimum requirement, albeit an expensive one, for getting even the lowest-level job.

Consider the 45-person law firm of Busch, Slipakoff & Schuh here in Atlanta, a place that has seen tremendous growth in the college-educated population. Like other employers across the country, the firm hires only people with a bachelor’s degree, even for jobs that do not require college-level skills.

This prerequisite applies to everyone, including the receptionist, paralegals, administrative assistants and file clerks. Even the office “runner” — the in-house courier who, for $10 an hour, ferries documents back and forth between the courthouse and the office — went to a four-year school.

“College graduates are just more career-oriented,” said Adam Slipakoff, the firm’s managing partner. “Going to college means they are making a real commitment to their futures. They’re not just looking for a paycheck.”

Economists have referred to this phenomenon as “degree inflation,” and it has been steadily infiltrating America’s job market. Across industries and geographic areas, many other jobs that didn’t used to require a diploma — positions like dental hygienists, cargo agents, clerks and claims adjusters — are increasingly requiring one, according to Burning Glass, a company that analyzes job ads from more than 20,000 online sources, including major job boards and small- to midsize-employer sites.

This up-credentialing is pushing the less educated even further down the food chain, and it helps explain why the unemployment rate for workers with no more than a high school diploma is more than twice that for workers with a bachelor’s degree: 8.1 percent versus 3.7 percent.

Some jobs, like those in supply chain management and logistics, have become more technical, and so require more advanced skills today than they did in the past. But more broadly, because so many people are going to college now, those who do not graduate are often assumed to be unambitious or less capable.

Plus, it’s a buyer’s market for employers.

“When you get 800 résumés for every job ad, you need to weed them out somehow,” said Suzanne Manzagol, executive recruiter at Cardinal Recruiting Group, which does headhunting for administrative positions at Busch, Slipakoff & Schuh and other firms in the Atlanta area.

Of all the metropolitan areas in the United States, Atlanta has had one of the largest inflows of college graduates in the last five years, according to an analysis of census data by William Frey, a demographer at the Brookings Institution. In 2012, 39 percent of job postings for secretaries and administrative assistants in the Atlanta metro area requested a bachelor’s degree, up from 28 percent in 2007, according to Burning Glass.

“When I started recruiting in ’06, you didn’t need a college degree, but there weren’t that many candidates,” Ms. Manzagol said.

Even if they are not exactly applying the knowledge they gained in their political science, finance and fashion marketing classes, the young graduates employed by Busch, Slipakoff & Schuh say they are grateful for even the rotest of rote office work they have been given.

“It sure beats washing cars,” said Landon Crider, 24, the firm’s soft-spoken runner.

He would know: he spent several years, while at Georgia State and in the months after graduation, scrubbing sedans at Enterprise Rent-a-Car. Before joining the law firm, he was turned down for a promotion to rental agent at Enterprise — a position that also required a bachelor’s degree — because the company said he didn’t have enough sales experience.

His college-educated colleagues had similarly limited opportunities, working at Ruby Tuesday or behind a retail counter while waiting for a better job to open up.

“I am over $100,000 in student loan debt right now,” said Megan Parker, who earns $37,000 as the firm’s receptionist. She graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta in 2011 with a degree in fashion and retail management, and spent months waiting on “bridezillas” at a couture boutique, among other stores, while churning out office-job applications.

“I will probably never see the end of that bill, but I’m not really thinking about it right now,” she said. “You know, this is a really great place to work.”

The risk with hiring college graduates for jobs they are supremely overqualified for is, of course, that they will leave as soon as they find something better, particularly as the economy improves.

Mr. Slipakoff said his firm had little turnover, though, largely because of its rapid expansion. The company has grown to more than 30 lawyers from five in 2008, plus a support staff of about 15, and promotions have abounded.

“They expect you to grow, and they want you to grow,” said Ashley Atkinson, who graduated from Georgia Southern University in 2009 with a general studies degree. “You’re not stuck here under some glass ceiling.”

Within a year of being hired as a file clerk, around Halloween 2011, Ms. Atkinson was promoted twice to positions in marketing and office management. Mr. Crider, the runner, was given additional work last month, helping with copying and billing claims. He said he was taking the opportunity to learn more about the legal industry, since he plans to apply to law school next year.

The firm’s greatest success story is Laura Burnett, who in less than a year went from being a file clerk to being the firm’s paralegal for the litigation group. The partners were so impressed with her filing wizardry that they figured she could handle it.

“They gave me a raise, too,” said Ms. Burnett, a 2011 graduate of the University of West Georgia.

The typical paralegal position, which has traditionally offered a path to a well-paying job for less educated workers, requires no more than an associate degree, according to the Labor Department’s occupational handbook, but the job is still a step up from filing. Of the three daughters in her family, Ms. Burnett reckons that she has the best job. One sister, a fellow West Georgia graduate, is processing insurance claims; another, who dropped out of college, is one of the many degree-less young people who still cannot find work.

Besides the promotional pipelines it creates, setting a floor of college attainment also creates more office camaraderie, said Mr. Slipakoff, who handles most of the firm’s hiring and is especially partial to his fellow University of Florida graduates. There is a lot of trash-talking of each other’s college football teams, for example. And this year the office’s Christmas tree ornaments were a colorful menagerie of college mascots — Gators, Blue Devils, Yellow Jackets, Wolves, Eagles, Tigers, Panthers — in which just about every staffer’s school was represented.

“You know, if we had someone here with just a G.E.D. or something, I can see how they might feel slighted by the social atmosphere here,” he says. “There really is something sort of cohesive or binding about the fact that all of us went to college.”

Tax Hike For Who, and Cuts for Who?

By Bob L.
Sun.09 18 2011

Now why would any one want to stop a tax increase on the Rich, is it because all those over under Educated Idiots in D.C. all make over ONE MILLION a year above what they get paid to do a job that they don’t have any Idea of what they are doing, other than Protecting the themselves and the rich.

The next thing that will probably come out of the White House is that the unions will get a big tax break, if you check you will see that the big companies are paying on average, wages over One Hundred Thousand a Year, and you hear Obama saying that he wants to give them a tax break, now people making this should not get a tax break, if they do then you can say that the Government is Discriminating against people living on poverty level and below, the tax cut should be Fifty Thousand a Year and under that should get the tax break.

I have tried to find where this free Country went after 1967, but every time I look at the paper or turn on the Television, all I see or hear about this is the Wealthy getting away with breaking the law that us poor FOLKS go to jail for, a good example Shop Lifting, Drunk Driving, Hit and Run, Drug Possession, and there is more that the law turns their back on when it comes to the RICH, NOW where is this free Country when it comes to the law, and who controls it.

Set their wages at FIFTY  THOUSAND a YEAR to do the job, and they have to pay for every thing else, just like the American people do, Americans don’t get a free ride, they should not be able to either.

THEY ARE NOT THINKING ABOUT THE PEOPLE, THEY ARE ONLY WORRIED ABOUT GETTING ELECTED, OR REELECTED, THEY WILL LIE ABOUT WHAT EVER YOU WANT THEM TO LIE TO YOU ABOUT.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama, in a populist gesture designed to appeal to voters, will propose a “Buffett Tax” on people making more than $1 million a year as part of his deficit recommendations to Congress on Monday.

Such a proposal, among suggestions to a congressional Super Committee expected to seek up to $3 trillion in deficit savings over 10 years, would appeal to his Democratic base ahead of the 2012 election but likely not raise much in revenues. Continue reading
