So draconian anti-gun laws don’t actually protect people from getting shot by criminals? That can’t be. Maybe it’s just an anomaly. Hmmm. Nope. Cities with harsh anti-gun laws still seem to be rife with shootings. It’s almost as if those willing to commit the most heinous of crimes pay little attention to laws involving less serious infractions. I could never have imagined that would be the case.
You left a W and an e out of your name. I’ll let you figure out where to put them.

She could have worked at a desk or at least on a safer beat.

And conversely you can’t declare an entire population of people to be potentially violent offenders. The VAST majority of people that police encounter are not a threat and don’t deserve to be treated as such.
No, I’m saying if it’s a crime for a citizen to do it, it should be a crime for a government official to do it, that torture doesn’t really work because people will say anything they believe will make it stop, and it’s used on “suspected” terrorists by a fascist government that can’t even define terrorism. Remember Harry Reid calling Ted Cruz a terrorist? Recall Tea Party conservatives, libertarians, people with a “reverence for the founders”, conspiracy theorists, veterans, etc. being listed as potential terrorists? I mean just because a lying politician calls someone a terrorist doesn’t make it so, especially now that they’re using it as a justification to prosecute thought crimes.

I own my own car and therefore do not have such problems. While owning a car is not always a picnic and comes with its own problems and responsibilities, the freedom it provides is well worth it.
I own my own car also but when you have to fly for business the most expensive thing you can do is leave your car at the airport for days.

And people have the gall to ask why a woman would falsely accuse a man of rape. Look at all the attention she’s getting. Look at how many readily believe her story. Accusations of sexual or violent crimes are a HUGE club that women can wield against men.

How does the mass firing of low wage employees, many of whom are barely worth what they make now, going to lead to more people with more money? Are YOU going to pay someone $15/hour who’s barely worth $7.25?
Well of course you aren’t, you don’t even run a business. Assuming you did though, what business sense would it make for you to pay someone over twice the value they create for you? Good luck getting investors and loans with that kind of business plan. Good luck generating a profit with your ridiculous payroll expenses. Good luck getting customers to pay your exorbitant prices compared to your competition who relies on mechanization.

If they really cared that much about time they wouldn’t be at a softball/baseball game in the first place.

I wonder how long before they have the police out strangling people for selling loose sodas.

I guarantee you that if Coke or Pepsi raised their prices on their own and attributed it to some costly market forces, that people would lose their minds over it and wail about corporate greed.

“Berkeley Councilman Laurie Capitelli told the Times in 10 years the hope is that the city won’t be collecting any soda taxes because people at that point would have decided to stop buying such sugary drinks all together.”
Bull feces. What they will do is attach the tax revenue from sodas to some third rail government program, and if the revenue starts to drop they’ll start having conniption fits about it. Then they’ll find some other enjoyable aspect of life to tax into oblivion. Then the cycle will begin anew. Tax. Spend. Repeat.

You may not be warned when there will be a drill, but you are supposed to be warned that there could be one and you are supposed to be trained about what to do when a drill or an actual threat comes about. They clearly failed to do that here.

A female instructor at that, but I’m sure that bisexual or lesbian females are somehow exempt from sexual harassment laws.
True, in my younger years when I enjoyed the nightlife, some of the more aggressive persuals came from women to the point of me having to threaten violence on a few to get them to leave me alone. Some would even follow me to the bathroom every time I went, men can't even do that! Others were outright scary so I would go look for the biggest, loneliest looking gentleman I could find in the club and stick with him for the rest of the night. I sure don't miss the single life.
