CA is fine, the problem is the old actresses wanting to disguise their age because they're not being selected to audition. They were fine when they were young and attractive, and being on the receiving end of the system; but now they're not they've started complaining and using their wealth (gained from their youthful years) to change the system. Hahaha, touch titties!

There are a lot of things that are good and an end in their own right, but I don't necessarily think we should be subsidizing those sorts of things while people go hungry and are sleeping out in the streets; while people can't afford good healthcare; while people can't get a decent primary and secondary education.

Please stop applying statistics to things that are not related. Raw GDP is meaningless in this context of what the President did or didn't do. Clinton legacy: 2000 USA GDP $10.3 Trillion. By your measure Bush grew the economy! WooHoo! and by more than Obama! We love Bush! Bush is Good!

Then they detonate themselves with the goal of destroying whatever it was that triggered them. All without any consent or intervention required by the party that placed it. Oh wait, landmines are already banned by the UN. Well at least they tried.

Technically true, however if they don't think there is any way you can't do the job, they still do the PIP for a reason. They want to avoid lawsuits. The former employee can sue for wrongful termination, even in Washington state.

terminations in violation of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing. Wrongful termination also includes terminations in violation of federal, state, or local anti-discrimination laws.

Comment Re:Wet paper bag (Score 1) 2837

Maybe, but I don't think that is necessarily a good thing. The Republicans had the right idea, they just executed it in the most stupid, miserable, incompetent, way possible. The Republicans went anti-establishment and the Democrats doubled down on establishment.
