The Right To Work

Daniel Strauss has a good roundup of the conservative outrage over Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich resigning after criticism for his $1,000 donation to the anti-LGBT Proposition 8 campaign in California. Conservatives seem outraged that you can lose your job over your political views. They apparently are unaware of the irony that they oppose legislation that would protect your right to a job if you are actually are gay or transgender.

i'm just not a right nutjob who thinks that telling lies on an obscure forum is actually going to change something.

so, naturally, i think this particular arena is best suited to being as snarky as i can get. because anyone who takes this interaction seriously would have to be on the meds you mention.

Walmart's so-called alcohol policy
Posted Wed July 14, 2010 11:26 pm, by Susanne B. written to Walmart
Write a Letter to this Company | Rate this Company

I am a 26 year old woman and recently went to walmart. My 21 year old friend happened to be in the store and accompanied me to the cash register to chat while his mom shopped. I went to the cashier to purchase some beer and handed over my I.D. she rang up my beer, I swiped my debit card and then she noticed me talking casually and asked him for his I.D. He didn't have it on him at the time and went to his mom's car to retrieve it as he was not making a purchase and would not have needed it. I asked the cashier why she needed his I.D when we were not even together and she said it was the store policy. My friend came back into the store after I was already embarassed by other customers in line behind me making comments as if I was someone who commited a crime. It turns out, my friend did not have his wallet with him since he was only accompanying his mom at the store. The cashier said she could not sell the beer to me and I asked to see a manager since it was so ridiculous that I could not purchase the beer due to running into a friend at the store. The manager did not help me and I walked out with nothing. I have never heard of such a policy anywhere. If this is in fact Walmart store policy, there should be signs next to the alcohol section of the store and next to the register. I walked out very unlucky, angry and embarrassed that other customers thought I was trying to buy alcohol for a minor and it also embarassed my friend who did nothing wrong and was just at the wrong place at the wrong time.

I would like Walmart to put up signs stating this store policy near the alcohol and near the registers.

yes, people whom you give permission to to search your records can pay to get that info.(and they have to log that info onto the DMV site with their password, they don't get it by just swiping your DL card.)

not your local Walgreens or LickRmart, nor Target when they swipe your DL when you return the sweater your got for christmas...

"straw" purchases of alcohol are a common problem and stores are held responsible for same......

most liquor stores in Mn post that people under 21 must be accompanied by parents or guardian to be in the store... very reasonable rule.

Democratic Officials and Activists Linked to ACORN Plead Guilty in Voter Fraud Case
Numerous voters told Fox News that they were stunned that their signatures were faked on absentee ballot applications and ballots, which were cast as real votes in their names in the 2009 primary election.

Your move
So explain how a photo ID at the polls would have stopped it.

Look,dumbass, where is the voter fraud that a photo ID requirement at the polls will prevent?

That has always been the question.

Not that there is no voter fraud.

Republicans know that the top two methods of voter fraud deal with absentee balloting & legal alien residents thinking they can vote. Neither is stopped by a photo ID at the poll.

Republicans know that there are no statistics that there is significant voter fraud that a photo ID will stop.

None.

They know this.

& Yet they keep passing these photo ID laws.

So I guess what you are saying is that it is OK for Republicans to cheat to try to win elections.

You think so little about of democracy & the right to vote, that you support stopping millions from voting so your party of no ideas & poor governing record can win a elections.
