The co-founder of Home Depot slammed 'woke people,' said nobody wants to work anymore and called Joe Biden 'the worst president in history' for putting obstacles in the way of entrepreneurial success. Bernie Marcus, 93, believes that the success the company he began with Arthur Blank in 1978 couldn't happen today.  He said: 'We would end up with 15, 16 stores. I don’t know that we could go further' because of people standing in the way of the business community. Marcus added that he's worried about capitalism and said thanks to socialism, 'Nobody works.

Why buy a cow with so much free milk at hand? The word Entitled used to have a positive connotation. It meant an honor or privilege bestowed upon one deserving of it. Now, it's generational Gimees.

Because of WELFARE. There used to be a clear connection between working and eating, and living indoors. Now housing if free, food is free, everything you need can be obtained by government handout. So, huge numbers of folks have just said....."Why work?" and they don't give a damn unless they are hungry or tossed out....and then, they just move into a tent in a park and beg. NOT work.

It's as old as Aesop - remember the Ant and the Grasshopper. It's Marxism, take from the productive and distribute to those who are not productive. What's new is the Government enabling and promoting the behavior. How many individuals have left the workforce - 10 million? How many jobs are open - 10 million? Yet Lame Duck brags about the unemployment rate. Welcome to a bizzaro America.

One reason unemployment is low is because millions have simply left the workforce. The world Mr Marcus grew up in has just about disappeared.

During the panicdemic many were making more money not working than they made working. Not much of an incentive to work. Not to go off topic but Quid Pro Joe is the reason there is a tax on Social Security income. At one time there was no federal tax on SSN income. Then senilator Bidet got a 50 % tax. Later he got it boosted to 85%. Once The Vegetable gets his new 85,000 IRS agents things are going to get really bleak.

Yes and no. It isn't quite that simple. The labor shortage means there are not enough experienced manager types. Because of that, they hire inexperienced ones who do not lead, they order and bully. They crack the whip and belittle people, often asking unreasonable things from their employees. I'm in that now. Mrs C left nursing ten years ago. If a nurse would quit, they would not hire a replacement for a while, if ever. The additional work load was shifted to the remaining nurses. 7 days a week of 12 hour shifts was not uncommon. More would eventually tire of it and quit themselves and the downward spiral continues. No job is worth killing yourself for.

Redistributing taxpayer wealth to people who don't work, college students who don't want to pay their debts, and importing masses of impoverished illegal aliens into the US sounds like a great way to finish off the US taxpayer. The US middle class got a raw deal with Obama and Biden. No wonder so many solid citizens are skeptical about their votes being counted.

I notice Home Depot has been strangely excluded from the woke shop lifting and looting movement. First of all, ballpeen hammers are uncomfortably close by for potential victims to defend themselves. And it seems such perpetrators are not gonna go home and build a deck. Wokesters looting Home Depot would be be like a brood of vampires looting a chapel with Holy Water fonts at every door.

My first job was a paper route. Rain, sleet or snow I delivered the paper and put them on the front porch. If I managed my collections and new subscriptions properly I might clear 15 to 20 bucks a month. Wasn’t much but looking back on a job well done in all sorts of weather off the back of a bicycle was worth it. Pride in work, any kind of work, was a life lesson that has served me well through out my entire life. Today, it seems, work is beneath too many folks.

Suck it up. Other big stores just get with the spirit of wokeness, double down on diversity and free everything if you are the proper color and send in their monthly payment to BLM. The white kids just prefer working from their basements. Is that so hard to swallow?

#15, Your personal history is very similar to my husband’s. He worked a very large paper route until he was able to get a job at 16 and has continued to do so. He understands the need for a strong work ethic and that being responsible in every area of life is the key to a successful and meaningful life. This has been a core value in our family because it produces success along with self-respect and self-satisfaction. Democrats want to wipe out the value of work. They see it as having very little value. We have changed as a nation and not for the better. Some parents are too soft on their kids. They don’t teach them the value of work or a job well done. They reward laziness and then wonder why their kids aren’t more productive. Raising responsible kids who value work is not easy. You have to start early and set an example and have high expectations for your children. Nothing is free. Someone always pays even the fools who choose the welfare life don’t understand how they are nothing but chattels of big government and it is costing them their souls. A government that will give you everything is the same one that can take it all from you. Government has destroyed more lives than have been lost in any war. It’s a long slow death wherein you lose all your self-respect before you die. Human beings were created to be productive and build families and communities in order to have lives that are meaningful. This is the foundation for a well ordered civilization. The evil cabal that has at its core mission an evil ideology that will destroy the family and personal property in order to gain control of humanity has taken major steps to accomplish that and has exploded during the past two years. They openly state, you will own nothing and be happy. Unfortunately, many will embrace the slavery that comes from embracing free stuff.

Our society suffers from its prosperity. The definition of "poverty" would be luxury in 75 percent of the world, and largely middle class in the rest. Our kids expect to start where their parents worked to get. Investors believe their investments should only gain 20 percent annually and that the government ought to manage the economy. We're wanting to be the "Leader of the Free World", spending our blood and treasure in places and causes that have no national interest, unwilling to leave nations where decades are spent "nation building", with these countries unable to defend themselves when we finally leave. Schools that teach no practical skills, with "diversity" the goal...retarding merit and dissuading white males from trying. The list is long and growing.

I agree with all of the replies here. As to the CEO of Home Depot, I am troubled because of my recent experience with Home Depot. I am not here to air out my dirty laundry, so to speak, but Home Depot's response was very, very disappointing. In a nutshell, we spent thousands of dollars for a repair to our whole house and received substandard customer service. Home Depot didn't seem to care - that is all I will say. Home Depot wanted to feel as little pain in what they did. Trust me, if I would have been allowed to have a conversation with Bernie Marcus, it would have occurred. We do not shop there very much anymore. Sadly as it was my go to place. I will say this - there seems to be immaturity on both sides. CEO's, managers or high-level positions are paid top dollar in a company and some of those people can't even think their way out of a brown paper bag. Yet, they continue to be paid top dollar while people in lesser positions that are paid less have to make up for the lack of thinking at the top level. The other side of the coin is some of the people in lower positions think they should receive more pay and raises but perform as little as possible. I guess I am exhausted with leadership and the work ethic that has deteriorated greatly. Such a shame as we forget the blessings of this wonderful country. . .

The goal is to make everyone dependent upon government for everything, thereby solidifying their power as the hand that cuts the pie. When people must look to the gov’t to eat, heat, get better and drive cars, the gov’t has the people by the short hairs. Only Democrats like this setup. They are the ones with the totalitarian bent. Nauseating people.

Big stores like Home Depot contract out their installation and repair services and they have little control over a bad job other than to not use those same contractors in the future. That is why they might seem to dodge responsibility. Once the sale is over they are finished with you. It's an efficient workable business model but sometimes the customer is left hanging. I attempt to do my own work after purchasing an appliance or materials and I can only blame myself if the work is shoddy. Surprisingly I get better results than when I use a contractor and my costs are cut in half. Youtube is packed with videos on how to do everything from installing a hot water heater to staining your wood floor. This guy is right on target when complaining about HR people. They used to focus on hiring, firing and preparing paychecks and that was it. Now HR specialists are supposed to be psychological counselors, diversity and inclusion monitors and babysitters, none of it in the best interests of the business. Unfortunately most of their activity is government mandated - Nuff said.

I’ve spent the last month mentally recuperating from one of the most grueling yet fulfilling moments of my life so far. When I started on-the-ground coverage of the Arizona general election in September, I had no idea that I would become a regular member of one of the most highly-watched press pools in the nation. And for a college student, that’s objectively terrifying, even though I’m not exactly “brand new” to the media world.

Despite much manipulation of information by its members, the committee’s report garnered all of about eight hours of headline news before quickly burning out. Why? Because there was almost nothing revealed that we didn’t already know in it, and no matter how much Liz Cheney, Adam Schiff, and the rest insisted otherwise, they themselves never produced an ounce of evidence that Donald Trump orchestrated and was responsible for the Capitol breach. Still, there was something interesting shown in the testimony of now-infamous Ray Epps, the man who was caught on video multiple times

The attack happened just after 10 p.m. about eight blocks from Times Square, just outside of the high-security zone where thousands of revelers were screened for weapons as they prepared to ring in 2023.

She also issued the minimum salary pay for House staff of $45,000.  Pelosi defended her action, saying that it would help Congress retain quality staff who might potentially look for outside opportunities from private employers.  “As you know, our hard-working, patriotic congressional staffers are integral to the functioning of the House of Representatives," Pelosi wrote in a letter to House lawmakers,

Legendary TV journalist Barbara Walters has died at the age of 93. The intrepid interviewer, anchor and program host who blazed the way as the first woman to become a TV news superstar died peacefully at her New York home. 'She lived her life with no regrets. She was a trailblazer not only for female journalists, but for all women,' her publicist Cindi Berger said in a statement. Walters made headlines in 1976 as the first female network news anchor, with an unprecedented $1 million annual salary.  Her last on-air interview was with then presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2015,

They have wanted these sensitive documents for years. Donald Trump’s tax returns have been viewed as the Holy Grail of scandal for the Left. It’s the smoking gun they’ve lusted for, and now they came into possession of these documents after a lengthy legal battle between Trump’s lawyers and House Democrats. The Supreme Court failed to intervene after multiple lower courts had ruled against the former president regarding keeping these files under seal. Spencer wrote about it first—and it was a nothing burger. It might have been an even bigger dud than the Russian collusion hoax. Trump’s tax returns from 2015-2020 showed what we all knew about the former president:

According to former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, the Biden administration rates as “the most corrupt and dangerous” in the history of the country. During an appearance on FNC’s “Hannity” on Thursday, Gingrich made the declaration and warned of a “constitutional crisis” stemming from the Biden administration’s desire to wage war on its own people.(Snip) We have a real constitutional crisis of an executive branch seeking to wage war against the American people, and I think the House Republicans who are the only coherent conservative group in Washington, given the chaos in the Senate.

Vice President Kamala Harris’s “gamesmanship” against her staff has led to a long-standing pattern of dysfunction, prompting questions about her capabilities under pressure, a new book reports. A former aide said Harris engaged in “really unnecessary gamesmanship” with staff, behavior the person attributed to “deep, deep insecurity,” reports a forthcoming book by Chris Whipple obtained by the Washington Examiner. The staffer, who spent years working for Harris, claimed she “refused to do the kind of preparation that you need to do before going public on a hardcore policy matter. And then she became incensed and outraged when things wouldn’t go the way she thought they were supposed to.

Left-leaning Democrats have soured on Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg in response to the mass flight cancelations during the holiday season despite his promise to fix the problem back in September of this year. In a tweet on Thursday, Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), one of the few Democrats who criticized Twitter’s decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, publicly scolded Buttigieg for not sticking to his pledge to hold airlines accountable. “Nearly six months ago ⁦@BernieSanders⁩ & I called for Buttigieg to implement fines & penalties on airlines for cancelling flights. Why were these recommendations not followed?”

An NYPD officer on his first day on the job was stabbed in the head with a machete by a 19-year-old who investigators believe may be an Islamic extremist during New Year's Eve celebrations near Times Square. The attack happened just after 10 p.m. about eight blocks from Times Square, just outside of the high-security zone where thousands of revelers were screened for weapons as they prepared to ring in 2023. Trevor Bickford, 19, of Wells, Maine, allegedly approached the officers on 8th Avenue between 51st and 52nd streets armed with a large knife that he used to slash two of them, Commissioner Keechant Sewell said at an overnight press conference.

Amidst a wasteland of absolute trash coming out of Hollywood over the last several years, Taylor Sheridan’s “Yellowstone” has become a saving grace for television watchers everywhere. It’s gritty, it’s visually stunning, it’s fun, and most of all, it’s not woke. There aren’t any explicitly leftwing narratives being shoved down the audience’s throat when you watch “Yellowstone” or its equally well-done prequels, “1883” and “1923.” In fact, there’s a rather conservative bent at times throughout the franchise, though Sheridan is loathe to allow his work to be defined along political lines. For example, the latest season of “Yellowstone” has the Duttons converting a rabid environmentalist from her misguided secular religion.
