Is an apparent law enforcement officer (or group thereof) who is conducting their work illegally, really a law enforcement officer?
As far as implementing the "universal competency of critical thinking"... I said no such thing and I don't think any sane person would think it is possible.
You actually did say such a thing. You said...
Demand that children are COMPETENT in critical thinking...
Now, words have meaning, you know? The word "demand" tends to mean:
a forceful statement in which you say that something must be done or given to you.
The word "children" was used as a collective with no qualifier, which implies universality, at least from the point of implementation of whatever grotesque plan you had in mind.
Your demand was competency, in capital letters no less. Therefore, you are suggesting that at some point in the future, there is universal competency in critical thinking skills.
There you have it; that's my critical thinking of your forceful suggestion.
How will you implement the universal competency of critical thinking? Will that be with the use of enforced education camps?
The taxi industry's "safety fee" is embedded in the fare and regulatory cost burden. There is also the inference that the regulations provide some guarantee of safety, which is disingenuous also.
Oh, the demonstration of humanity. You must be a taxi driver.
That's the mooney shot.
I think they call that "commerce". The drivers are probably exploiting Uber for their own enrichment.
I wouldn't be surprised if the metabolic wastes of the internal gut flora played a significant role in what nutrients get digested and absorbed and what otherwise would pass through. Perhaps a significant proportion of the nutrients we absorb is not from food, per se, but from the metabolic wastes of gut flora.
Residual hand heat on the keypad tends to identify the numbers (and sequence) contained in the PIN. This is easily seen with FLIR cameras (there's an iPhone FLIR adapter available), apparently.
Capitalism isn't the problem. State-sponsored capitalism is the problem. Those who accumulate the wealth should bear the financial burden of protecting the wealth. Currently, the most egregious accumulations of wealth (by absentee owners) have its protection subsidized by the middle class taxpayers (financing the law enforcement and judicial system) and the general obedience of a polite society (indoctrinated into accepting nebulous property rights, such as IP).
These regulations were sponsored by Jim Ardis. He was up all night working on this; amongst other things; and now has blood-shot eyes.
Just make sure you sign it with your real name.
People with arrest records and those who might be vulnerable to critical thinking skills tend not to suffer from Stockholm Syndrome quite so readily.
