'Violent crime' is often a race-neutral term employed by the business interests to encourage racial profiling and more policing against poor and minorities....see New Jim Crow.
Sep 9, 2013 Chris Govella commented on Who's the Bigger Asshole: The Speed Camera Or the "Patriotic" Tagger?.
@2 except that speed cameras issue tickets to the registered owner of the car, and it's hard to prove who's driving/speeding/not speeding when all they have is a picture of a license plate
Sep 6, 2013 Chris Govella commented on "There has never been a successful humanitarian intervention.".
"Success" is such a tricky word. At this point in the civil war, what does a successful outcome for Syria look like?

Gore lost the election for himself. He couldn't even swing his home state of Tennessee. Clinton did it, twice.

great thread everybody. Now can we get some more feminist posts on here already?
Jun 28, 2013 Chris Govella commented on Lance Armstrong Inadvertently Explains Why We Need Well-Regulated Markets.
Punish the cheaters, incentivize actions in the public interest's benefit(the environment).
May 8, 2013 Chris Govella commented on The Customer Service Problem at McDonald's Is a Symptom of a Much Bigger Problem.
@22 tell that to the 200+ reviewers on Glassdoor who worked/work at Chick Fil A http://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Chick-f…
