> Alcohol and drug addicts are becoming a menace to society. There is a cure. The alcohol and drug industries are blocking it. Profits are too high across the board. The high cost of liquor and drugs isn’t a deterrent to those who use; it’s a liability. People are vomiting in bars all over Cleveland. Bartenders, reliant on tips, over serve. It’s not the over-pour, though that’s a problem for some too, it’s the total amount it takes.
Customers come in with high risk bands all over their wrists and bartenders put blinders on to get that tip, putting the entire establishment at high risk. Bartenders and wait staff need to be trained. Courses need to be mandatory and paid for by each city/town. They don’t need to be long or cumbersome. But they have to take a test to pass.
Unfortunately the food and beverage industry is comprised of a bunch of con artists, who care only about how much they can steal from the establishment and the customer. The alert must go out, and all owners, management and the rank and file working in the food and beverage industry need to wake up and see how they’re contributing to the decline of a nation by continuing to serve drunk people or people who come in who are clearly drugged out of their minds. Why would any thinking person serve someone like that?
I say abolish tipping. Why should I pay someone to be nice to me, just because it’s their job to bring the food to my table?
Customers have to literally fall off their chairs before being refused any more service, and even then another concerned customer usually has to bring it to the attention of the server so everybody else hears it. Short pouring only makes more profits for the owners of their bars, since people will drink what they need if allowed, and will stay as long as it takes to hear that ‘click in their brain or pass out, no matter the cost.
The cost to the consumer is moral and financial bankruptcy.
Pursue the cure to all ends and all costs, before it blows up in everybody’s faces. It’s there. You know it’s there.
> Oh, and build that Goddamn wall. There are terrorists in the jungles training, waiting for the right time to strike. Let all the super rich people in the USA foot the bill. Yeah, blacks too. Open your wallets or shut your mouths. Oh yeah, we understand, you like to spend everybody’s money but your own.
Spanish speakers from south of the border fund terrorist organizations by sending USA dollars to their so-called families. Everybody who looks and talks like they do is their family. When are people going to wake up to that reality.
> Black people are the majority on continental Africa and look what they’ve done with that majority. They still act like barbarians.
Some of the oldest so-called civilizations on the planet are the least civilized. Talk about getting stuck in the mud.
Every time an African black in the USA gets shot during the commission of a crime or when resisting arrest or being stopped by police pretending to have a gun, the entire African black community puts the cop on trial, then the entire white community on trial, when the one committing the crime or pretending to have a gun is exonerated in their eyes on their side of the street in their world. That type of thinking is precisely why continental Africa after all these thousands of years is still in the sewer.
If you can’t see the discrimination in collective punishment then you don’t know what discrimination is. You’ve been the recipient of affirmative action for so long, that you don’t remember a time without receiving privileged treatment, while not having to do the work of competing for jobs, education and other services.
> I read an article the other day about someone being shot when they stole a car. The black community thinks there’s nothing wrong with stealing somebody’s car, because the owner has insurance and will buy another one. It isn’t that simple, and it’s highly stressful. I had four different cars, one after the other stolen for that reason.
But stop and think about the level of logic that exists in an entire race of people, who think it’s their right to take without payment anything that they can get away with taking and when they don’t get away with it, their families riot in defense of the criminals – it’s always in defense of the criminals or people who don’t think laws apply to them.
A couple of days later, in back of some international school near where I live, I was cutting through the parking lot and saw a black kid trying to steal two bicycles that were locked in a bicycle rack.
As I walked, another black kid turned the corner and saw the thief. The look on his face when he saw his bike being stolen told me to get out fast. He ran toward the kid, I kept walking fast, then heard what sounded like firecrackers behind me. Pop pop. A few seconds later I figured they were gun shots.
As I turned to look I heard activity, but the cars and vans in the lot blocked my view. It probably isn’t a good idea to have a bicycle rack in a place that’s hidden from view behind a building rather than in front of the building where the foot traffic would discourage the theft.
So, that tall kid supposedly setting off firecrackers didn’t like it when it was his bicycle being stolen. In fact, he shot at the kid doing the stealing. Guns shouldn’t be allowed in that school. Who even checks?
> We need better anti-stalking laws and anti-harassment laws in the USA. NOW – not three years from now. Maxine Water’s public call to harm targeted people in public places by disrupting their activities using cruelty to force them onto the bandwagon of their oppressive, prejudicial agendas needs to be looked at more seriously than it has been.
No law in any location anywhere within the USA should allow for that inhumane treatment of any individual.
All citizens are free to move about the country.
Blocking that access should be a federal crime. It’s tantamount to kidnapping, enslavement and psychological torture, and it adversely affects all those in the environment where it occurs.
The right to assemble does not include the right to abuse and menace individuals who hold public office or who don’t hold any office, when they go out to public places to engage in activities of daily living. Somebody’s going to get hurt.
The laws must apply to everyone. Policy vs practice vs law need to come together in order to stop the discrimination based on group affiliation or political party.
Most communities have anti-menacing laws. Use them. Then rewrite them to cover all citizens, not just famous people or public people. African blacks in America keep saying they’re human beings, well European white people are human beings too. It’s a good idea to treat others how you like to be treated instead of how you don’t like to be treated. The logic in that second approach is backwards. In fact, what your logic does is allow for the violence within to emerge through your words and actions absent accountability.
Hurting people as a method to force them into doing what you want them to do is slavery. Stop making the USA into Africa. Slavery was outlawed in the USA a long time ago. Stop trying to bring it back. It has no place in a free country.
One of these days you’re going to wake up to a world where terrorizing others with your jungle screams won’t get you immediately what you want and you’ll actually have to do the work of progress like everybody else. There are no short cuts that work long-term.
Screaming like spoiled brats with nothing of substance to say, except you want what somebody else has without paying or working for it, has already gotten really old.
> Plastics is a big killer of animals – in the bodies of water all over the planet where the human animal thinks it’s their right to dump their waste and pollute the habitats of other species, not equal to them is always their excuse – but someone who cares about other species dying from the disposable plastics all over the planet have bioengineered via bioplastics a new and improved bag that actually dissolves over about forty-five days in sea water. In fact it’s so safe that one can drink it.
Take a look at this website explaining their engineering goals and products. Their products are made from renewable resources made from plants. That didn’t take long. Mass produce the products. Take plastics off the shelf.
