Today, people at the Chicago Board of Trade threw a bunch of McDonald's job applications on the Occupy Chicago protestors below them.

It is perhaps worth pointing out that earlier this year, McDonald's sifted through one million job applications - and hired about 62,000 applicants. That's less than 6%; or, to put it another way, on the order of sixteen applicants for every job. Every crappy service job at Mickey D's: sixteen applicants per job.
Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.
