@27 "Consumers demand increasingly lower prices for the products they want, and businesses demand increasingly higher profit, with the workers caught in between."

I would venture that there is a link between the consumers demanding lower prices and the workers getting squeezed: if you're not making much, you need to buy the cheapest things available to you. It's a vicious circle, the opposite of what we saw in the post WW2 years, when workers used their relatively larger disposable income to afford more, and better, stuff..

@24 Yeah, but they're GAY white dudes...

@16 It's not the real Raku. But it's sufficiently convincing that it tricked Dan, so don't feel bad. It's a pretty impressive troll.

As I sit in my cubby at , a block from the mall, I think the most interesting thing about this story is simply this: the Federal government tends to transmit information about anything... ANYTHING... that might be a disruption to normal work activities. Any kind of event, whatever, usually couched with phrases like "awareness" and "security". And there's been nary a peep about anything, not even a "be aware of your surroundings" type note. I'm think even Homeland Security is laughing these nutballs off.

Of course, it was also a torrential downpour this morning, which I'm guessing cuts way down on how interested a lot of these folks are in standing around, blocking traffic or whatever.

Just stopping by to echo @17: more Goldy, less Hesher.

I don't see why it would work any other way

That's because you're a small minded, men's right's spouting dufus. It's HER body. The fact that you (theoretically, as I can't imagine it's ever happened in real life) supplied some sperm doesn't give you the right to demand what someone else does with their body.

The shitting-all-over-the-paper's-writers thing was a lot funnier when it was A. Birch Steen. I don't know why. It just seems mean-spirited now.

@7 He tried to stow away in a wheel well for a flight to Hawii. He was arguably brain-damaged before.

@1 agree. But that was a really good ad.
