Not my state. We kick them out once the strawberries are picked.

California is a strange place. Highest taxed state in the country, highest poverty rate, 4th highest cost of living, absurd housing prices, and the 5th or 6th largest world economy. They're losing their middle class at an alarming rate, but they've got the largest number of illegal immigrants and also billionaires. But they've got good weather, beaches, and snow skiing.

Compare that to Florida. No state income tax, fastest growing state, low cost of living, cheap housing, great weather, and lots of beaches (we're the only state with both Atlantic and Gulf coasts). We may not have snow skiing but we got guns, snakes, no-see-ums, and alligators.

I'm stayin' right here and cranking my Skynyrd. Yee Haw y'all.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Actually it's employment, not state benefits that I've previously found totally bizarre. You're not allowed to be in this country! Here have a job.

None of it makes any sense to me. Hardly suprising, though, as I'm old and generally stoned.

Three Gary [Indiana] teachers face losing their jobs and the Bailly Preparatory Academy principal has been placed on administrative leave following a May 23 awards luncheon in which the school presented an 11-year-old autistic boy with a trophy labeling him “most annoying male,” of the school year.

I won the 'best dressed pupil' award three years running.

:lol: Sharp as ever Mr. Peacock.

The trophy says "male". Was there a most annoying female award given, and where are her parents? Maybe they figured the school got it right. :dunno:

About 30 years ago, at an end of school party for teachers, a series of humorous awards were given out, run by a very funny PE teacher. I've forgotten most of them, but I remember that Betty, our lab assistant, won the award for "best legs" to roars of approval...

Could not happen these days...

What the actual fucking fuck? Now I know the established view is that those with nothing to hide have nothing to fear, and that the people who propose that will be the first to mansplain exactly why it was reasonable of the police to make those kinds of assumptions and take those kinds of actions (perhaps pausing only to note that the language was poorly chosen), but really...? America may have a Black problem, but that problem is white people - particularly white authority - and their perception of Black people, all people of colour really, as dangerous and erratic non-conformers who require rough treatment to keep them in their place - even pregnant mothers and children.

Then again, if only the child had been armed...

It's just an isolated incident, Brian. 42 assures us that racism is very unpopular in America. :ddpan:

It's vitally important to be able to defend yourself. It depends on the definitions of 'defend' and 'yourself' how you go about that.
“I don’t know how much longer I have, but a storm is coming. However, I’m not without defense,” he said in the brief video, pulling out a rifle. “I’m fuckin’ ready. Let’s do it.”
'Dallas Federal Building Shooter Posted Far-Right Memes About Nazis and Confederacy'
A Texas man accused of opening fire outside a Dallas courthouse uploaded right-wing memes to Facebook, including memes about Nazism and the Confederacy.

Authorities said Brian Clyde, 22, attacked the Earle Cabell federal courthouse Monday morning before law enforcement killed him. No one else was reported injured. A Dallas Morning News photograph of Clyde shows him holding a semi-automatic rifle and wearing a belt full of ammunition. He appears to have uploaded to his Facebook page a picture of similar magazines on Saturday. Elsewhere on the page, he shared memes, some of which suggested racist or misogynist views.

Authorities did not offer a possible motive for Clyde’s rampage and declined to comment on his social media presence.
