The city really messed up in how they handled the construction of this project. It was supposed to happen in neat phases, but they rushed ahead and chewed up the whole length of the street all at once. It has been a disaster for the whole neighborhood, not just for those along the route. There was always going to be some impact, but they didn't even try to keep that impact minimal.

Things will change when we have mandatory firearm insurance the same way that we have mandatory insurance for automobiles. People can be allowed to own as many firearms and as exotic of firearms as they can afford to insure. You can bet that insurance companies will require safety training, trigger locks, gun safes, etc. Unsafe shooters and teenagers will see their rates soar. The fine for uninsured firearm use can be similarly as high as the uninsured motorist fine. Firearms and automobiles can both be useful things to own, but so far we only hold drivers to be responsible for their actions. It is time that shooters prove that they are responsible firearms owners by carrying liability insurance for their weapons. State shooters licenses similar to drivers licenses would go a long way too.

Did anyone check Bangasser's numbers? $30 a foot tax difference between Jackson and Union doesn't sound right.

Trucks don't steal from sit down restaurants the way fast-food doesn't steal form restaurants. They are different options for different needs. Sometimes you don't want to sit at a table for lunch. Other times you want to take someone out for a nice sit down. It's all a part of the mix.

Sep 24, 2014 flotard commented on Warner Bros. Pictures Spent More on the Movie Gravity than India Spent on Successfully Sending a Spacecraft to Mars.
What? Charles is defending Capitalism as more important than expanding knowledge?
I was in India in January and people I met were so excited that India could do so much in Space for less than Americans spend to make a movie about Space. India is a country of very driven, ambitious people and they are so busy chasing their dreams.
