Divulging the inner scandal...
Giving the Game Away
Employer policies for employees to scam customers.
How much do people really sell themselves for the paycheck? What do employers make people do to sell more product or to cut costs in keeping profits high for the shareholders? Little jobs, big jobs, does it matter. What have you done to cheat a customer on behalf of the company you work for? Have you ever done a task for your employer that went against the grain of your own moral convictions?
Whistle blowers are welcome! Tell all. Tell us about how old spoiled meat left out in the open is added to the chili and how corn starch is thrown in to add fake consistency. Feel free to anonymously vent your frustrations on dishonest business practices. All kinds and colors are welcome. Who forces politicians to sign bills and resolutions without reading them? Any corporate Vice Presidents willing to give up uncouth trade practices? Teachers! Inform the public on what makes it difficult for you to perform your calling. Fast food workers! Tell us the dirty shortcuts our favorite restaurants achieve to help maximize their profits. Any upper management people? Give it up. Tell us the wicked and profane.
What goes beyond the limit of money changing and power profiteering!
Should an employee be loyal to dishonest practices? Pushing products while spinning lies of artificial certitude? How many brokers lie, cheat, and misinform their clients to get the big sale?

Cato stays where he is. For all his stubborn foolishness it was the right way for him. Roman honor dictated his ultimate action...too bad for him!
He points the way up the mountain!

Suppose it symbolizes adding fuel to burn for vain glory?!
Concentrating and condensing Itself for the chosen few .. or predestined.
The extreme use of prejudice denotes an escalation in hatred beyond insanity.
A Common factor with all groups with extreme prejudicial viewing systems:
They destroy not only a whole groups of human beings, but, all traces of their books, their artwork, their knowledge...
An evil, single minded force to wipe clean all traces of existence.
Follow the trail of all that glittering silver and gold coming over from the New World.
What did it finance?
What debts did the Crown incur?
Blood and Gold The Making of Spain
To whom were these debts paid to?
Where is all that gold and silver today?

Five star thread OP!
The art of argumentation can be used against those who don't appreciate it's forms and structure as an art for distraction.Skillful argumentation is an antidote to productive communication. It offers a way to eliminate bickering, anger, fear, and all the trash that prevents decent control of oneself. It's both an informal and formal method of debate leading to agreement by examining claims and justification by focusing on the interaction of argument, Itself!.I'd like to think humanity has upgraded itself since Homer, Aristotle, and the countless others who began the art of conversation. Setting conditions of claims and evidence and shifting it all around with inference and warrants. The whole point of reasonable argument is to look for resolution. This only works, of course, with reasonable people. Closed minds and using physical force can obviously kill any argument, anytime!
Ethos, Pathos, and Logos

We could mention some of the nefarious selling procedures practiced by the cell phone companies. Always pushing the bundles and getting people to sign contracts that lock them into cages filled with debt and more price increases along the way. These contracts only ever work one way. To benefit the seller. Nevermind the inside theft and little discrepancies appearing with bonus' for the bigger fish. Tricking proxy holders into signing extra rewards to the sycophants just for doing their jobs. Cooking for accountants 101...

This is a very profound speech that holds true today more than ever about the fading human condition. Charlie Chaplin was way ahead of his time. This YouTube Video really accentuates this brilliant speech from the "Great Dictator"
This was from 1940. Makes you wonder how people got so stupid over the last 77 years. Progress for humanity? I think not.

I'm thinking number 9 on that list sort of makes everything else moot...
9. No one is supposed to contaminate space.
Everything we send up there contaminates it one way or another. Is it really possible to colonize the solar system without contaminating Earth with whatever may be out there?
Good thread idea Ghost!
