Comment Re:Negotiating salaries is for the birds. (Score 2, Insightful) 430

A huge disadvantage of private business is its lack of accountability, and lack of transparency that goes along with it. How can everyone understand if things are working well in an environment where as little is shared as possible? Salaries are only a part of it.

Comment Re:Chapel Hill/ Carrboro North Carolina (Score 2) 654

Public transit in the SF Bay Area consists of buses and Bart. Bart is always late and congested, and its administration seems intent on reducing cars and frequency so that you have to wait a long time and stand up and elbow each other no matter the time of day. The buses take an insanely lengthy amount of time to get anywhere more than 7 miles away.
Fix those things and I would get rid of half my cars.

Comment Hard line (Score 2) 194

No matter the sincerity, or lack of it, from the "current administration" or any previous one, when negotiations are on-going with an entity that believes it holds all the cards (yet needs finds itself 'negotiating'), it will demand no concessions and maintain a hard line while implying that some kind of compromise is possible. Germany and Greece.
