There are actually a lot of different "engineers"---software engineers, etc. The point is that a lot of the older guys are being left on the sidelines because of outsourcing and demands for premium wages--I know quite a number of them. China and India are major sources of technology and both have put major money into increasing the size of their technological employees--far in excess of USA efforts. These are all competent and eager employees, but when another country can give the same for about 1/2 the cost, you go with the best price.

If that were true, companies would not hire women and minorities. What is happening is that government is the one actually picking winners and losers. It is government pressure and mandates that push one class of Americans away from jobs while at the same time allowing openings for other Americans. If the markets were actually free to choose, Most of these white guys would be working and others would be on the sidelines, but that would be poltically incorrect.

You're difficulty is that you have tunnel vision. The real issue is not the anti wage discrimination laws, but rather why do we need them if gainfully employable people want to work and not be discriminated against? The reality is that discrimnation laws are bipartisan. No one wants to be the one consciously discriminated against. But you are correct that all actions have consequences. Note that the companies doing the chopping are actually cutting services to their consumers. Look at all the outsourcing and poor service nowadays by companies that used to take pride in excellent service. It's the consumer that is also getting screwed.
Well now you know the realities of domestic violence. Under the law, a woman is incapable of conscious thought and is perpetually afraid. According to domestic violence advocates a female is a legal "imbecile," incapable of conscious thought once she chooses a man. Which brings us to the issue of why allow these people to vote if they are so "disabled?"
Actually you are completely wrong. According to the Center for Disease control, even talking "not nice" is a form of abuse. (No i am not kidding--go on their website and read their position on "Intimate Partner Violence.") Therefore under the CDC anyone even having a disagreement with their spouse is "an abuser."-- Now pay up boy!!!!!
Completely false. Domestic violence is another special interest group of lawyers, advocates and those making money directly off federal funds. It has nothing to do with protecting the victim or anything else. It is merely about money. The rate of recividism iin domestic violence issues is 98%--98% of the people involved get back together. The problem is government doesn't ask them to repay all the monies invested in them via domestic violence shelters, special proescutors etc. They ask the tax payer to pay that. This is just another con and racket. If you wanted to actually help domestic violence victims you would make them personally responsible pay back all monies if they got back together with their abuser.
You also cannot see the forest because of the trees. The point is that the "government" is getting in the lives of individuals even if those individuals don't want them to. It is the nature of domestic violence advocates to follow the money--fed money. The sheriff and his wife are just as guilty of "domestic violence" perpetrated upon them by the state as the wife is from the sheriff. That is the true nature of corruption. That is how the Spanish Inquisition started.
You got the story wrong. This is what he agreed to as part of a plea deal to keep his job as a law enforcement officer. It is standard operating procedure. In many states, a domestic violence charge precludes you from carrying a gun. So if you want to work at your profession you have to agree to the the charge--even if it is false. That is why they are called plea deals/agreements. Now you know how corrupt the system really is--and it is good that those that have to enforce it are many times also its victims.--LOL!!!
The real story that no one wants to talk about is the double standard that Americans enact when it come to women. We treat them as imbeciles that cannot advocate for themselves. This of course is because that is the way women want it--they want if both ways. They want to be seen as victims yet they want to be seen as strong, courageous and independent...well you cannot have it both ways. And until women choose, we will have schizophrenic policies.
Same sex marriage IS a threat to America Society--just like no fault divorce has been a threat to American Society. Look at the carnage. Look at the number of children that have no fathers and live in poverty. Same sex marriage will help in the onslaught against men and women committing to one another. It is the devaluation of Marriage. If gays can be married, then in actuality Marriage is nothing special since anyone can do it. Two Heterosexual bachelors can then marry in order to enhance and protect their financial assests and leave it to one another when one dies--and still continue to live as bachelors. If gays are allowed to marry, then logic has it that two men and a woman can also--why discriminate against one and not the other?
What this columnist says is accurate but hardly the whole story. It goes much further. It is the blatant attempt of the secular segment of our nation trying to force believers of any faith to accept secularism as their main God--after which they are free to choose their secondary gods. And what is even more egregious is that these secularists represent a significant minority in this country. This is another example of the minority trying to dictate to the majority. Think Affirmative Action, Abortion, Women's Reproductive Rights,the Education of our Children, and only one group-think on who and what created the earth, the solar system and the Universe. To believe this is only about Marriage is complete folly.
