Here we go...gonna shut down the bridge to protest. Protest what? The system worked. You want to protest? Protest the fact that blacks make up 13.3% of the population but account for more than 52% of the murders? I don't care if the people protesting are black or white...drive over them, LOL, but quit whining about racism. The head of the NAACP insinuated that without the video this would have been swept under the rug. Maybe, maybe not, but isn't that pre-judging, or prejudice? I think we all read the paper, and funny that almost everytime some robbery is committed or murder, more often than not it's a black suspect. How come whites aren't protesting that? It also reveals something else we should be asking. Why did this guy get out of his car? I don't care if you are black or white, it's a very bad idea to get out of your car and confront ANY officer.
Reminds me of the extended warranty plans that Best Buy and others try to sell, which are almost pure profit and a ripoff. We moved here from Alabama a few years ago and I always wonder how this company gets away with so much of what it does. They seem to have a tin ear for what the public thinks or the dolts who run this company don't care. Either way I've never seen a company with a worse public image.
Thanks for one of the best articles I've ever read on the subject, Jon! As a 58 year old, my friends and I spent many hours playing way back when and even today there's no doubt whenever a machine is around you'll find me and perhaps one of my daughters playing. We love it. There is no video game around that matches the excitement of playing a good pinball machine.
I don't think Charlestonians have much to fear from this show. First, I watched about 15 minutes of it. It was as exciting as watching paint dry. Self absorbed rich kids about sums it up. And it's on Bravo which has about 15 viewers.
He must have missed the comments by Dr. Barbara Dr. Babara Bellar which sums up just how stupid we have become: We’re going to be gifted with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t which reportedly covers at least 10 million more people without adding a single new doctor but provides for 16 thousand new IRS agents written by a committee whose chairman said he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it with funding administered by a Treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes for which we will be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect by a government that has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese and financed by a country that is broke. So what the f--- could possibly go wrong?"
I think that pretty much sums up Obamacare.
