Comment Re:John Deere has too many non farmers (Score 3, Insightful) 445

There is no Federal law regarding repair requirements for automobiles or tractors. The only relevant law is one passed in 1990 that required computer monitoring of emissions and, in turn, required that independent shops be able to access the data.

Both major parties have had control at various times, and neither of them was able to get such a law passed. You have been deceived into becoming a loyal low-information Democratic voter.

Comment Racism and sexism (Score 1, Troll) 227

With no real inkling about what had led police to his door, he lodged a complaint that the force was institutionally racist and sexist, because the home internet account was registered in the name of his partner, who is white, but she was never asked about the images. Her smartphone â" Lang did not have a smartphone at the time â" was also not seized.

This is insane. Everyone knows that racism and sexism only exist in the USA.

People that represent themselves tend to talk about how much they like and appreciate America/Canada/UK, that they are grateful for the opportunities, and how they are working hard to contribute. In an asylum hearing, that is pretty much the opposite of what you should say.

So they should say they hate America, they are entitled to wealth, and they don't feel like working for it?

That does sound like the attitude of the average Democratic voter.

Comment Re:I got a bonus every single quarter at Wally-Wor (Score 1) 108

Have you ever thought to ask those teachers how much they make, and what their expenses are? I'll bet they overextended themselves, like many of us. And if they truly are underpaid, that's purely a local problem that needs to be handled in your school board meetings. In my district, for what is at most 10 months of work the average teacher earns about what I do (plus superior benefits), and I have 20 years of experience in my field. But no one wants to have their OWN property taxes raised. They want the federal government to step in and make the "rich" (everyone who make more money than you) pay for it.
