Should it be a federal crime for businesses to refuse to hire ex-convicts? Yes, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which recently released 20,000 convoluted words of regulatory "guidance" to direct businesses to hire more felons and other ex-offenders. ... It is difficult to overstate the EEOC´s zealotry on this issue. The agency is demanding that one of Mr. Livingston´s clients—the Freeman Companies, a convention and corporate events planner—pay compensation to rejected job applicants who lied about their criminal records.

Yet another reason to outsource as much of your business as possible.

As I understand it, prisoners have worked for years on phone lines, for all sorts of companies you might call. What happened to making license plates, & doing laundry?

Back in the 1980s, the EEOC sued the city of San Antonio, Texas, for using criminal records to disqualify police applicants. EEOC said that had the unfortunate impact on hispanics and blacks, who were more likely to have criminal records.
The EEOC lost.

It is only fair that the private sector should follow the path blazed by Obama in his public sector (including Czar positions) hiring.
Obama has hired or surrounded himself with more convicted and unindicted felons than any Administration in history--Tim Geithner, Eric "The Red" Holder, Bill Ayers, Kas Sunstein, Bernadatte Dohrn, Nancy Pelosi, George Soros, etc.

As the article points out the regulation will hurt rather than help blacks because employers will simply not consider them in the first place. Of course a way around the reg is to get a detailed and verifiable employment history from a job applicant.

The simplest method for avoiding this Obama maddness is to not hire at all. This EEOC obstacle just reinforces the no-hiring response of American businesses, which has already been burdened with 4 years of Obama.

If you have 49 or less employees, your firm is exempt from ObamaCare, so adding 1 employee makes all 50 employees subject to either mandatory insurance or the per employee fine that Justice Roberts called a tax. To avoid hitting the Fatal 50, buy a machine, work overtime or hire workers who are only permitted to work less than 30 hours per week.

This is just more of Obama racism ;all about the prisons and felons being overwhelmingly black. They can´t vote so he´s trying to do anything to get votes with no regard for the safety of others....especially whites. Of course it´s other blacks that will be the the victims. But you have to break some eggs to make an omelette, right?

This guy is simply an out and out black racist. It will all get clearer even to the doubters as we progress toward the end of his term. Or would that be "regress".

The stunning part is the crushing effect on states requirements for criminal background checks for certain jobs such as caring for elderly, disabled and children. State laws require criminal background checks and prohibit hiring of those convicted of violent crimes, theft, forgery etc. A facility is licensed by the state and they could lose their license if they hire people w/prohibitive offense. The EEOC says this is ok.

The EEOC is declaring open season on the vulnerable elderly, disabled and children. The background check is a tool to prevent abuse. If this is enforced, look for upheaval on the state and local levels.

It would seem that the liberal notion of ´morals and background´ are now so fantasy driven - any ´expose´ of such could well strike ´em as an emergency scenario requiring legal bars to ´examination´.

So to recap - we already have *government* workers who are routinely criminals, and since they´re the ones ´in charge´, why is it odd they´d want the rest of society permeated by their class of individuals?

An ´afterthought´...

If ´lying about one´s records´ were indeed a ´criminal offense´ - Obama would be behind bars.

A most amusing thought!

The EEOC is just another government agency that should be zeroed out on funding. The list is VERY LONG and I´m waiting for the House Republicans to get off their collective arses and STOP writing the checks....

Another instance of an election having consequences, the EEOC is primarily staffed by ultra liberals, and most of those minority criminals and their family members are liberal Democrat constituencies, so what do you expect such an agency to do?

Business stopped hiring convicts when they were held liable for any crimes that a convict employee might commit.

Which begs the question......if its unlawful to discriminate against convicts, can the employer still be held liable?

And this begs another question.... WHEN is a man or woman considered rehabilitated? In today´s climate, the only employment that an ex-con can hope for is part time minimum wage from a small company. There is little chance that these people will ever be afforded the opportunity to get their life in order.

Would I hire an ex-con? Maybe... Would my company? Absolutely not.

EEOC, the answer is NO. Not until you put up a $10 million bond for each and every felon hired to cover for potential damage to the company and customers.

Next issue!

It sounds like the setup for a bad joke: What did the Wall Street type say to the college president on the golf course? ... the college has "no curricular requirements that center on the American founding or the history of the nation." Even history majors aren´t required to take a single course in American history. In the History Department, no course is devoted to American political, military, diplomatic or intellectual history—the only ones available are organized around some aspect of race, class, gender or sexuality.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
