Congratulations.

You managed to write a letter that provides zero information on what items your group differs on from the MCA.

Job well done.
Clarity provided.
Big step forward.

Not.

They needed to rally their customer skills.

No eye contact at the register. Total hipster/nonchalance mode by employees with no interest in the "business".

Even the owner didn't thank customers after a purchase or engage customers.

Disastrous customer service = no business.

Supply and Demand

Supply and Demand

Over the past 20 years there has been a HUGE increase in the supply of poor, low-educaiton labor coming here illegally from Latin America.

This has driven down wages and opportunities for working class legal citizens. Combine this with a resurgent economy (especially for the ownership class - stocks and realestate) and and entrenched "slow growth" policy for new rental units in SB and voila!

Barry: they are not "Latino Citizens" they are "American Citizens" and there right to vote, run for office or elect a candidate are being taken away any more or less than any other America Citizen.

Just because someone whose parents or ancestors were born in Latin America and they now don't win an election does not mean their rights were lost or infringed upon.

The state law that you used to implicitly threaten the city of SB with is itself steeped in racial bias, racism and racial identity politics. And you earn a living off all that.

Shameful.

On Taking Racism Out of City Elections

The United Nations IPCC group has repeatedly lowered its forecast from +2 degrees Celsius warming to now +1/2 of a degree warming over 100 years.

Meanwhile all the renewables so far deployed generate less than 1% of our energy usage while costing double and heavily impacting the poor.

Meanwhile: petroleum and its products have created massive improvements in the quality and safety of people globally in the past 100 years, reducing pollution from wood burning and lifting up economies and opportunity for billions.

In the US alone, cracking has lowered the cost of natural gas to the point that our CO2 emissions are back to 1992 levels as electric power plants switch off coal and move to natural gas. Expensive renewables has contributed 1/9000th of that reduction!

With 2014 the warmest year since 2005 by a margin that is 1/4 of the amount statistically relevant, clearly it's time to destroy life as we know it and our economy and capitalist democracy in favor of massive tax and spend programs administered by liberal democrats.

Communism is a great idea too but those darn humans mess it up too!

No matter what idealistic idea, there needs to be restraints on human abuse or Mis-interpretation of it. Separation of church as state is a start, so are the separation of powers between executive, legislative and judicial.

Thats why Sharia is so frightening. It's is a separate "law" and routinely used to justify abuse of others - especially women. Many wish to implement sharia in the U.S. and most on the left see little problem with this, or they fear being called islamaphobic.

LOL!

Love it!
How about try some customer service?

I've bought there three times to help support local book store and each time found disengaged, snail paced employees behind counter who made no eye contact and could barely care at all that I was there... this slacker, hipster, angst filled teenager looking kid told me HE was the owner!!!

No wonder they (deservedly and unsurprisingly) are going out of biz.

Agee 100% 'billclausen'

I'm just trying to get men in that boat... At least in peoples' minds... Since you are right - we're both in it in actuality.

On Are U.S. women better off than they were 20 years ago?

Meanwhile...

Men die 2x more of heart disease but American Heart Assoc spend equal funding for men and women research
Men graduate from high school at lower rates than women
Men get college degrees now at less % than women but little/no action or care.
Men have higher unemployment than women.
Men live shorter lives (normalized for war)
Men have to sign for selective service at 18
Men die at same rate from prostate cancer (vs.breast) but 1/8th funding
Men cannot stop death by abortion but have to pay child support for 18 yrs
Men suffer same # of domestic violence incidents but near zero support
Men are circumcised as children but all attention on female circumcision
Men die 2x more of heart disease but American Heart Assoc spend equal funding for men and women research
Men incarcerated 80x rate of women but focus only on blacks %
Men thought of as second class parents even when showing they are not.
Men ridiculed as idiots in commercials and sitcoms and popular media.

So here is clearly a huge war on women.
