I find someone complaining about cigarette smoke, while standing next to a roadway, filled with vehicles pumping out carcinogens at a rate that can be measured in tons per hour, to be somewhat less than credible. Life is messy, and there is no such thing as a risk-free existence. Get over it, or don't. First world problems. Jeez.
They want their Mayberry back. Problem is, for most it never existed. It was a fantasy reserved for those with the right income and skin color. Over the years, this bubble has been getting smaller and smaller, but unfortunately stronger. It will eventually fall under it's own weight, but not without doing this nation serious harm first. They've already made us painfully aware that they'd rather see this country burn, than be wrong. It will eventually die a natural death. But some things are never dead enough.
If I own something, in this case something potentially dangerous, and a legal entity wishes to purchase it, I should have the right to sell it. Period. Gallegos is right. It is a fetish. And not their only one
Mammy's titanium bubble notwithstanding, every right wing "solution" to immigration reform always tends to lean toward the violent and racist.
Just once, I would love to see an idea come out of the legislature, and think to myself, "Hey, that's a great idea. I never thought of that."

Is it really all that unreasonable to expect a certain amount of excellence from one's representatives? Apparently it is.
"At-will" employment. I love that. Both have the same rights, but one has decidedly more in the way of resources. But that's how they roll. Take a noble intent, and pervert it. They do it with everything they touch. How can anyone consider a lack of personal honor a virtue?
Az Reader: 6% of people in this country will believe anything a misogynistic, drug-addled, bigot tells them? Gee, what a surprise.
