While the CA Republicans have more in common with the endangered spotted owl than 1/10th of the US population. Republican fundraisers still swing by to pick up checks from Silicon Valley companies..
In response to:
There are about as many Republicans in CA as there are pink unicorns with gold plated horns.
Hm. I guess maybe you intended that as corroboration for the grandparents' comment about people turning into Republicans when they get lots of money, rather than agreement that Republicans are rare in California? Okay, point made.
I have always assumed the censorship law reflected the balance of power at the time
It kind of does, sometimes, this was the idea behind the Fairness Doctrine. Before that though, there were few limits on what the media could say and there's been at least one American war fought essentially purely for the sake of selling newspapers (the Spanish American War).
I think you were going somewhere else with that comment, but I don't see it. The Fairness Doctrine is the only thing I can think of which fits that description.
At the same time, while, on the whole, it may be cheaper to do it yourself, if you don't use your juicer a lot then it may be more expensive in the long run when you have to buy many different ingredients that don't last that long.
No, the point is that it's $400 cheaper, with exactly the same results, if you don't buy the juicer at all. Also: No, you could use a standard juicer and throw away half your ingredients (probably much more than that), and it would still be cheaper than $5/eight ounces.
There's a convenience cost, and for the people willing to pay it that second point is less important, but the first point is the mark of a scam - this product is unnecessary.
those first three people decided not to question their selection to be #REACCOMODATED whilst the last man felt his opportunity cost was much more valuable than waiting an entire day
No, all of them felt the same way about leaving. Only one of them wanted to fight about it. I'm a little conflicted on this issue - the guy who we're all supporting here was clearly in the right, and many people would describe what he did as "sticking up for himself against an abusive company," but he did so at the expense of... how many other people on that plane?
It was a terribly self-centered act, and he's going to be richly rewarded for it. Meanwhile, the other three people who were just as inconvenienced as he was are going to get squat. I fully support standing up against this kind of abusive behavior, but not in this way.
