    The (generalized) consensus I've seen so far is that NorCal would be taxed out the ass, California would be fucked because they have no water rights, and SoCal would be impoverished. Agreed, it's a fucking stupid idea. It's a desperate Republican attempt to get more power in what they've falsely labeled an "ungovernable" state.

    Proposal to split California in three will be on the state ballot in November. NorCal, SoCal, and California (aka Beach California).

    Not the first time this has happened, and polling still shows weak support (sub-20%), but it got over 400,000 signatures in order to get on the ballot.

    While they're at it, let's move NYC to NJ and make the rest of New York its own state.
    Why do rich white guys think they always have the answers?

    Oh yeah.

    Mass shooting at a Maryland newspaper.

    Who would've thought this would ever happen in gun-loving, press-hating Trumpland.

    I've been having some wild discussions on Facebook about this mess. One of my close friends is a journalist - a music journalist at that. The amount of crap he receives about being a part of the "#fakenews librul elite media" is crazy-making. He's a music journalist for crying out loud, he doesn't even write about politics. But once people hear what he does for a living, people start frothing at the mouth with hatred. It's absurd. There has been a very intentional attack on journalism for a long time, and the chickens are coming home to roost.

    Torturing children who are fleeing persecution and basically condemning them to a horrible life wasn't horrendous enough, so Americans are now stabbing three-year-old refugee children to death at their own birthday parties.

    It's shit like this that makes me ashamed of being an American and why I don't feel like celebrating this nation's birthday. Especially in light of what has been happening.

    Fortunately, someone has decided to make a statement about what is going on by going to the one place that stands for liberty and has pissed off all of these so-called "Americans" on its birthday: https://apnews.com/5c1c7e497d8b45b9b...source=Twitter

    I'm a baseball fan, the Toronto Blue Jays specifically. Our closing pitcher, Roberto Osuna, was recently charged with Assault, and issued a 75-day suspension. I don't think this is a serious enough punishment, and I'd like to still be able to cheer for my favorite team.

    I've started a petition to have him removed from the team. Please consider supporting it.

    The DOJ backs down after a long battle, admits defeat. Guns are now legally downloadable. The scenario in the article where Hillary was expected to win and they have an armed standoff over a server located in a library is... some crazy optics.

    When reporters and critics have repeatedly pointed out those potential consequences of Wilson's work over the last five years, he has argued that he’s not seeking to arm criminals or the insane or to cause the deaths of innocents. But nor is he moved enough by those possibilities to give up what he hopes could be, in a new era of digital fabrication, the winning move in the battle over access to guns.

    With his new legal victory and the Pandora's box of DIY weapons it opens, Wilson says he's finally fulfilling that mission. “All this Parkland stuff, the students, all these dreams of ‘common sense gun reforms'? No. The internet will serve guns, the gun is downloadable.” Wilson says now. “No amount of petitions or die-ins or anything else can change that."
    OK, sure. How about we focus on making something useful downloadable like pizzas or something.

    And don't we have a gun thread?

    @allegate , it was implied by The Jetsons that we would have foodarackacycles by now, or electronicooks at the very least, and i, for one, am disappointed.
    Furthermore, we have a gun thread but no pizza thread.

    lmao
    Also we have no first amendment thread. Do we need one? Cause this is heavily a first amendment issue.

    The foodarackacycle issue or the pizza issue?

    it's a first amendment issue because even if i petitioned the government regarding my grievance about the foodarackacycle, they would likely find some way to bury it, right?

    We need an at home pharmacy "printer," available ingredients, and instructions on how to make our own prescription medication (perhaps not legal during a short patent period, but after that, free game).

    And, looks like some have already been trying to do that... https://www.healthline.com/health-ne...cription-drugs .

    Lots of people are messing with that. Itís way more complicated than just laying down a single type of material into a shape. Itís chemistry and you need tons of different precursors. Lots of which the DEA has made hard to find. But hey, when it becomes viable this DOJ settlement may help prevent censorship. Big Pharma is going to be massively defensive of competition in ways that we didnít see a hint of from the gun lobby with 3D guns.

    He sounds well-adjusted.
    He reacted angrily to the court’s action, calling it “corruption.”
    “Whether you agree or not with this initiative, this is not the way democracies are supposed to work,” he said in an email. “This kind of corruption is what happens in Third World countries.”



    He said the state’s “insiders” were “in cahoots.”


    Cahoots. That's a word I haven't seen used in awhile.

    So, it looks like they published the article about what this restaurant did to my daughter and I when we were on vacation last week.

    We had heard about this restaurant, because they're very highly rated. We had just come from the beach and all 3 of us were dressed in bathing suits and t-shirts. We went in, asked for a table, and the greeter asked us if we'd like to be seated inside or outside, we asked for inside, and then a waitress came running out from the back screaming at my 14-year old daughter and pointing at her crotch saying "she needs a cover up" over and over again.

    We deescalated the situation and left (this waitress was really loud and angry), and I wrote to and spoke to the owner about how unacceptable it was to sexually discriminate against a female in the same attire as the 2 men she was with, how unacceptable it is to sexualise a 14-year old girl by pointing at her crotch and coming across the restaurant. The owner stated that he thought that was fine, and went on some diatribe about speedo's VS bikini's.

    I had written to the newspaper, trying to get as much attention brought to the situation as possible, and a reporter contacted me. He contacted the restaurant. The restaurant has responded by attempting to body shame my daughter, claiming that her ass was hanging out of her bathing suit (that's not true, nor would it justify yelling at a 14 year old girl from across a restaurant and coming at her while pointing to her crotch), and claiming that they didn't refuse us service, and only requested that she change her clothes.

    The newspaper published their article last night, and I've started getting the typical hate-message floods that you'd expect. Apparently all week the restaurant has been telling their customers that they didn't point at her crotch, but instead pointed at her bathing suit bottoms. I'm really curious where they think people wear their bathing suits.

    Anyways, if you're ever in PEI avoid the Water Prince Corner Shop like the plague.
