Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers !

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

Maybe take it out by Homeland. I used to work by the Amy's Frozen Foods manufacturer in Santa RosaRead More and it stunk so bad when you went out side you would want to puke. Until you work or live by that foul smelling stuff you have no idea. Someone should invent how to catch the horrible smells before it leaves the buildings.

Perhaps the only solution would be to have it made outside the USA. and have the company import it,Read More problem solved. Most Americans dont like these odors that burn the eyes etc. but they are getting accustomed to ordering them in restaurants that specialize in certain ethnic foods, then they can leave eating establishment and not have to smell it anymore. I used to live near people from india that cooked with curry all the time and had to keep my clothes in plastic bags as everything in the home reeked from the Oder all the time. They were nice people but never understood why Americans found fault with their cooking smells. Perhaps this is the case here with sriracha.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer!

Ever notice that Kaiser Permanente is never permanente?
Cousin Clem March 20, 2014 at 08:53 pm
Henry J. Kaiser owned shipyards and Permanente Metal Company years ago, so that is why Permanente isRead More capitalized. Permanente stated medical centers for the large number of shipyard workers that had recently moved to that area. Later Henry J Kaiser started a medical Plan and some non-profit Kaiser Hospitals. ~~~~~ After growing and going through some changes the current integrated managed care consortium was formed and named Kaiser Permanente.
Cousin Clem March 20, 2014 at 09:15 pm
THERE IS A LOT OF HEALTH INFORMATION FREE TO THE PUBLIC WITH NO MEMBER SIGN IN REQUIRED on theRead More KAISER PERMANENTE WEB SITE. www.kp.org (www.kp.com also works) I have been a member of Kaiser Permanente for over 45 years. ~~~~~ There are now Kaiser medical OFFICES in Wildomar and Temecula. ~~~~~ But to visit many of the specialists we now have to go to Riverside, or one of the other medical CENTERS somewhere else. Likewise if we have to go to the hospital we have to go to Riverside or other cities. It will be nicer to have the hospital and medical CENTER right here in Murrieta.

KMA March 14, 2014 at 08:56 am
Mad- I am not fixated on the other person- you have just appeared and you have the same misguidedRead More beliefs he has. So Obamcare is helping build the extended care facility. The residents of this facility will be on medicare or medicaid- how does Obamacare help them afford the stay- does it cut them a check every month? And again with the anti gun rhetoric- with a handle like Mad Arsenal one would think you would be pro gun- just pro RPG right?

Mike March 3, 2014 at 11:56 am
Caterpillar, Verizon, and others are already coming out with the costs they will incurr over this.Read More But that isn't the REAL problem here. The real problem is what this is going to do to the already sucking outloud economy we have. I am talking about mass lay offs that makes what we have had already look like nothing. These companies will pay less people to work more hours because it will still be cheaper than paying the associated costs of Obamacare. The union people will be hit just as hard as the average working man too. That's gonna' suck for them, but I would call it poetic justice. The underground economy is also getting ready to explode. I mean explode. People that have farm labor and small business labor will save money by just paying cash and not dealing with the new taxes. Up until now they could come out by writing the labor off on their taxes, but now it would be stupid to do so. So, the way I see it is the liberals are working on accomplishing their tru motives here. Destroy the health system and move to single payer, destroy the economy and have the government owning all of business, and last but not least, destroy the drive that has made Americans the the best people on the planet by taking all control away and the ability to strive for more. After all, in a communist society one person cannot have more than another remember.
Steve Newman March 3, 2014 at 12:08 pm
Mike- I am pretty sure JK saw it- but since he is a liberal tax and spend entitlement freak he won'tRead More admit any problems with the dems in charge in California. He should move to New York City where the tax rate is the highest, since he has no problem paying taxes. One more calif company to Texas where their economy is so much better than Cali- and they support the 2d Amendment.

Tough Mudder brought lots of folks and highly desirable revenue to the corridor as a matter of fact!!!

The unemployment rate only counts those getting UE benfits with cogress not funding the extensionRead More in Dec the rate will drop due to less people getting benefits not they getting jobs. Dec rate in nj dropped and there were lest jobs reported please do some research see the U6 numbers too the real rate of Unemployment in Cal is twice the stated rate. http://neighbors-helping-neighbors.com/unemployment-crisis.html
LBV Collins January 25, 2014 at 06:20 am
@John R. Fugazzie: Are the U6 numbers the *real rate* of unemployment? According to the Bureau ofRead More Labor Statistics (http://www.bls.gov/lau/stalt.htm), the U-6 numbers are described as the "total unemployed, plus all marginally attached workers, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all marginally attached workers." Doesn't that mean that the U-6 number includes not only unemployed, but also part-time employed? If so, is that a more accurate number than the U-3 numbers? (I'm not saying you're wrong, by the way. I'm just seeking insight regarding your point.)

ok let me set the record straight, my mother just retired after working for Ralphs for almost 30Read More years. she can tell you first hand that they are about the most expensive grocery store out there.in fact she did most of her shopping at stater brothers. Ralphs prices are only good occasionally and only if you use their club card. If you go to stater brothers you never need a club cards and their prices on everything is going to be cheaper. Why do you think the parking lot at stater Brothers is always so crowded.
