Or would a rational person perhaps look at the store as a profit center because it makes money, despite having overhead costs like
How about the cash registers?
How about the front door?
Is every last bit of overhead inside a profit center a tiny, microscopic cost center?
Profit requires revenue, and security generates NO revenue for most companies.
So, a company's money-making, walk-up retail storefront isn't a profit center?
So will a million other factors, most of which can't be foreseen or predicted. Would your Grandparents have foreseen the day that you could access the entirety of human knowledge on a device that fits into the palm of your hand?
The Earth and humanity have never been and never will be static entities. The climate has changed a great deal during the geologically insignificant amount of time that humans have been around. Most of those changes occurred before we started digging carbon out of the ground. Changes will continue long after we've moved past carbon based energy supplies. The notion that the climate was "ideal" during some specific period would be laughable if there wasn't a serious movement trying to use it to make public policy.
Unfortunately, security is a cost center, not a profit center. That doesn't sit well with the MBA types.
Nonsense. It only doesn't sit well with the fictional, cartoon-grade MBA types that IT people like to conjure up as straw men. Security IS a profit center, because it's part and parcel of actually doing everything that generates profit. Without it, the profitable activity is impossible, and so it is part of the profit-making activity. Period. Saying it's no is like saying the director of a Sony movie isn't part of their profitable activity of making movies because he has to be paid.
Sorry dude, but it's already been sold.
The NRA stands up for all citizens equally. If you have evidence to the contrary, the burden lies on you to bring it up.
Here's my question: why doesn't the NAACP stand up for the right of black people to keep guns?
Not so great if you want it to actually ring when a call comes in. On the Bold, I found that I have to use the ringer that sounds like an office phone ringer. If I use any others, it plays the short sound once (and they are all only a second or two in length) and I tend to miss the call. Also, I want the Favorites group open every time. Isn't that reasonable? I mean, they're my favorites. But it always mysteriously moves to Frequent or All, so that I have to swipe to find what I want. Most of the tiny icons don't look like what they represent, or two or three look almost the same.
It's crap, and I can't wait until my company replaces it with an iPhone.
What I'm really surprised about is that the price hasn't really gone down yet. The prices you see at those dispensaries are still higher than street prices in states where it's illegal, which is baffling.
The statists would say this is because deregulation doesn't work, while I believe it's because banks and investors won't work with dispensaries for fear of being attacked by the federal government. Also, with the legal states being surrounded by the illegal states, you're limited to local sources. When the supply is limited, any demand tends to push prices up.
