"You never know how booty-holes gonna act under big lights."
Well, they may be, not the way detailed here about Emergency Alerts. Do you dingbats ever do any research on a news story? Why in the world do you suddenly start trusting the media just because a story about Obama puts him in a bad light? The media is always wrong, both ways.
It’s the Wireless Emergency Alert System. It’s meant to supplant the old Emergency Alert System, which was the newer name for the good old Emergency Broadcast System.
First, it’s not going to be used for political messages. It’s just not its purpose, and the political blowback would be too much for even Obama to handle. Second, it’s likely to not be used at all. The presidential codes for the EAS/EBS were never used for an actual alert. Ever. Not during the Cuban Missile Crisis, not even during 9/11. Why?
Because someone suggested using it around 9:30am on 9/11 to alert the country. Someone else in the White House situation room (legend is that it was Cheney) walked over to the TV, and just started flipping channels. Every channel was an image of the WTC or the Pentagon. He asked, “who is going to see the alert that doesn’t already know?”
That is why it is going on phones now. If you are near a TV and something worthy of an alert happens, you are already going to know. For the system to be worth anything, it needs to go deeper, which means cell phones. This is a necessary evolution, and it will likely never be used, God willing.
Like the rest of the supervisors, she tries to create a friendly work environment and doesn’t want to enforce the policies that make this job so unpleasant. But her hands are tied. She needs this job, too, so she has no choice but to tell me something I have never been told in 19 years of school or at any of some dozen workplaces.”You’re doing really bad,” she says.
Seems to me that the problem here isn’t that you are doing bad — it’s that no one has ever told you. You’ve never done a bad job at anything in 19 years of school and a dozen jobs? Bullshit.
You’ve done bad before. You’re just in the first situation where they don’t gloss over the bullshit. Suck it up and join the real world.
He never would have tried this with GWB. Why? Because Bush wasn’t a bitch.
The IRS scandal is about “a small number of IRS employees” the same way Watergate was about a small number of plumbers who wandered into the wrong office.
The government didn’t argue the merits of requiring a photo ID or that the drug only be sold in locations with an on-site pharmacy, but Korman made clear why he found that to be an inadequate compromise: “You’re using these 11- and 12-year-olds to place an undue burden on women’s ability to access emergency contraception. If it’s an impediment to voting, it’s an impediment to get the drug.”
I agree with the judge.
I’m not a fan of Plan B. I think that abortion is a moral wrong. I’m especially not a fan of children experiencing statutory rape, becoming impregnated by their rapist, and then covering up the crime with a drug (potentially bought for them by their rapist.)
But, I’ll abide it. That is what being in a free republic is about. People are allowed to do things you don’t like, because that is what liberty costs.
I want equality, though. If showing ID to get this drug is an impediment to the “right” to abortifactants, then showing ID is an impediment to your enumerated right to keep and bear arms. Never mind background checks and form 4473s, this judge has just said that showing ID is an impediment to exercising a right.
So let’s do it. No ID for guns. No ID to exercise your right to travel by plane. No ID to enter a federal courtroom. If showing ID is an impediment to exercising a civil right, I welcome that development with open arms.
