Give her her job back but have her spend a night in the pokey. (well in this case just a hefty fine because COVID nobody should spend a night in the pokey if it's even kind of safe for them to be free) After seeing people so gleeful that Florida-Insurance-Costco-NoMask-Screamer guy got fired, I hav...

The guidance says "schools are fundamental to child and adolescent development and well-being."
Because without school how will kids learn how great it feels when torture stops.

I don't know if it's the tendency of older women to suffer from varying degrees of osteoporosis, the different architecture of women's pelvis, or something else, but women seem to be much more prone to hip fractures. Could it be that women live longer, and men tend to die of cardiovascular or other...

Re: Petty annoyances

Rebellion (no actual position required) is so baked into American culture I can totally see how people bake it into the patriotic pie and taste the dissonsance as a uniquely American spice rather than as dissonance.

A shift away from Tough on Crime will only come if there is sustained Thug Police Youtubes without accompanying looting/arson/CHAZ.

I think we've been getting the combo paint/primer all in one? Some external paint jobs are already peeling but then again I'm not convinced that it's not because the painters didn't really prep the surface properly. Plus SoCal sun is really fucking brutal.
