How on Earth does that make sense? How can Facebook be ok with my company having a Facebook page when it sells weapons, but not be ok with me paying them to promote it? Why did they allow me to target my ad to people who like guns, knives, and weapons if they don’t accept ads that sell products those people would be interested in?
There’s a naming rights campaign moving forward in the Penn-Harris-Madison School Corp. The nonprofit P-H-M Education Foundation is leading the charge, negotiating with local businesses and families to give money in exchange for a sign on a building or school facility recognizing their donation. The funds raised are promised for grants to schools and individual classrooms, use for such purchases as new iPads for students or teacher training.
Kevin Cox, the owner of the restaurant, has now begun to offer a 10% discount on a person’s order if that person is carrying a firearm. A sign posted on the front of the establishment reads, “Thank You for carrying your gun today,” with a 10% discount symbol underneath it.
SB967 flips the old adage “no means no” on its head, turning it into the more affirmative “yes means yes.” The bill defines consent thusly:
A month into the job, Firefly’s director of security, Ryan Malutinok, handed over a “list of issues” that APG “was supposed to ‘remedy as soon as possible,’” the suit says.
Sounds to me in like in the month they were working for her, her team wasn’t pleased with how they were doing their job, asked them to fix it, and then fired them when they didn’t to a satisfactory level.
Foodbeast.com picked their 14 favorite least favorite edibles at fast food joints all over the country and shared the Reddit users’ horror stories. None of the opinions expressed are verified but they are worth a gander.
Samantha Kidner, 18, drives a 1996 Cadillac Fleetwood federal hearse. She’s tried parking it in the handicapped parking spots at her apartment complex near USC, but staff have said she can’t because tenants find it creepy.
The most recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll says that a clear-cut majority is disgusted with the present political scene and retains little hope that future generations will fare as well as we have. As candidates get down and dirty in the lead-up to midterm elections, 60 percent say the country is in a general state of decline. A mere 19 percent of those polled have a favorable opinion of Republicans in Congress; their Democratic colleagues (or “colleagues”) poll at 31 percent. But the most remarkable number is 79: that’s the percentage of the politicized public that presently voices its discontent with the entire American political system as constituted; and fully half of the respondents said “very dissatisfied.”
The Constitution worked exceedingly well for a couple hundred years before now. It didn’t change. It didn’t become worse. Instead, what happened was the people in charge of upholding and maintaining the Constitution became drunk with power and craved to keep it, rather than protect the document that allows them to hold the jobs they have. Such is the nature of granting power to anyone. Even in anarchy, someone is in charge, and in anarchy, there is unbridled chaos. In a nation upheld by a Constitution, but run by people bought and paid for rather than outright elected, the chaos is more controlled. Our system is being corrupted.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) spent $300,000 studying how “humans interact with bicycles,” the latest example of what a House committee chairman calls waste in the agency.
