Should we add Mariott to the list of companies ‘silencing’ Republicans?

When you hire a plumber, you don’t care if cheated on his wife and what he thinks about capital punishment. You chose whoever can get the job done best.

Of course I take honesty into account when I am deciding who to hire as a plumber.

A $10m/yr salary for congress members would change a lot, but not enough. It would still barely be in line with private market compensation for executives.

Right, it would give sitting members a greater incentive to hold on to their seats at all costs, and make the barrier for entry higher for challengers.

OK, but the benefit will outweigh the cons. Voters have the final decision.

u may take it into account, but the main thing to take into account is how long after he unstuffs your toilet will u have to call him back, and how many suppers did u have to part with in order to make that period as long as possible.
his wife should interest u as much as the stuff he is unstuffing

Only if they change their logo from red to blue.

I don't mean this in a snarky way at all, but for all those people out there constantly complaining about government regulation and lecturing about how the free market solves all troubles, take a few minutes and see if some of  your arguments right now aren't very similar to those made against you then.

Hmmm where have I seen this comparison before...
I'll bring back my plumber example; if you have a plumber who is a total scumbag in his personal life, but does a good job in plumbing, you hire him to get the job done. Whereas, if you have a plumber who was caught trying to put a brittle old rubber gasket on your drain, you never hire him again.
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Still wrong...

Would you trust scumbag plumber in your house without constant supervision? Do you trust him to be honest when he tells you what work needs to be done when he isn't honest in his personal life? Would you rely on him to keep his word to you when he doesn't keep his word to his wife?

Sure, if you have the time to stand over his shoulder and make sure he isn't scamming you, you'd prefer the more skilled plumber, but if you have to rely on his honesty and judgment, give me the less skilled guy who will be upfront about what he can and can't do any day

Only after 4 years in which he did a good job in spite of his flaws and when he was running against a guy who had an affair with a married woman (at least according to her ex-husband).

i dont understand, u guys want reb chaim kanievsky to run for president?
u want harav elyashiv to be your plumber?
when deciding who to pick for your president or plumber, u have to pick out from those who are interested in the job
