ahh... in a clear case of a government attacking its citizens, some douchebag shows up to bitch about corporations.
The distinct branches of government are only of value to a free society when the branches oppose each-other to act as "checks and balances".
Blaming the mayor is like blaming one dead hard drive for a failure of the raid-1 array. Sure, that one bad disk is a problem but if the overall system was doing its job, then the news story would just be about a mayor trying something stupid and failing (an email from the SAN about a disk that needs to be replaced).
If cops showed up at this guy's house, it took all 3 branches of government to completely lose their shit.
No, it proves that the "rule of law" is a bullshit concept.
Before we get all silly, please remember that the police had a WARRANT to search the guys house. So any discussion of the "rule of law" needs to remember that the legeslative and judicial branches are also full of shit.
No just bitching about the executive abuse of power.
The labor market is a market. They have labor to supply.
Borders don't keep the jobs in any more than they keep people out.
at which point, all combinations of blocks and arrangements have been exhausted, the blocks thoughoughly used-up and worn-out, the $40 set must be tossed into the garbage.
congrats. you "beat" legos.
If someone is going around the office saying "fuckin fags should get married", they should also be fired.
reminds me of the old joke.
Q: what is the first step to determining if the area is now safe to un-mask?
A: ask the new guy if you can borrow his rifle for a second.
The only danger is if they send [them] to that terrible Planet of the Apes.
Wait a minute....
Don't confuse GOP with conservatism. The union-side of the Democrat Party doesn't give a shit about the environment. See how that works?
A corporation will line up for gov't teat faster than anyone. Wrong is wrong.
Free market principles? How about plain old freedom?
How about the enlightenment principle that government can't simply make up whatever laws it wants. There is no such thing as liberty if a local dictator can tell you what lightbulb to make or how to sell cars.
Why not force the regular car dealers to also bundle horse buggy whips with all car purchases to protect the horse-buggy-whip establishment.
This is another uber ridesharing story with different players. North Korea only has one dictator at a time. In the US we have thousands, spread across 4+ levels of government.
someone's going to label you as paranoid here.
but the patriot act was passed to "target terrorists" and was used to target everyone.
the cellphone owner is the only person who should have the option to "kill" the device.
so diluted that, statistically speaking, they may not contain a single molecule
...but THAT is what makes it so effective!
Looks like Dice and _roo are in teh pockets of big pharma and big grocery !!!1!
Here's another alarming trend: people are starting to use "homeopathy" to mean "holistic, nature-based, alternative medicine". When you tell them what homeopathy really means you will get "well that's not what it means to me! i mean in the more general sense" or "meanings change over time!".
owns the property and the means of production
Looks like we have a marxist!
Now.. what were you saying about a long track record of people being locked in, unable to escape the one-party system, the gulags, and the purges?
storefront clear of trash
if it spills into the public property, then there is a problem. if the trash is completely on the stores property, the market will likely take care of it.
require them to pay their employees
the deal worked out between the person selling labor and the person buying labor is between those parties, and not your / our / my business.
dump hazardous chemicals wherever
again, if the chemicals get off the property then we have a problem. if the chemicals stay on the property, not your / our / my problem.
