We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's the only jobs dems have created other than lawn mowing and having progeny sit on boards of directors for corrupted businesses of foreign elite. Other than mowing lawns it appears Obama was right for once...those jobs aren't coming back.
What the Bridgeport diocese abuse report can not say....they could say it if they have the least bit of courage even in the face of a progressive/Marxist pope. The Marxists of not so long ago told us what had to be done to undermine the Church and that was to infiltrate homosexuals into the Church. The infiltration continues and is supported by the leadership. It will not improve until they are put behind bars and the parishes are bankrupted. Why bankrupt the parishes you say? They have sat on their hands because they have been propagandized into accepting practicing homosexuals into their churches. It's all the norm, promoted by the elite, just as trannys are the norm. And in no time they will accept pedophilia. The Protestant churches have an equal problem. Biblical roots have been lost...politically and culturally. And we did it by saying nothing because it isn't politically correct.
Gjonaj said he’s bothered by the 15–to–30 percent commission rates that delivery apps like GrubHub (and Postmates, and Uber Eats, and DoorDash) charge, and he (along with other business-busting busybodies) wants to swoop in and change that. In fact, as noted in an article in Reason, a recent New York State Liquor Authority agenda revealed that the organization proposed making it illegal for delivery services to charge more than a 10 percent commission.
. . . As Reason notes, the SLA’s no–more–than–10-percent rule would apply only to restaurants that have liquor licenses. Any restaurant without one would have to apply (and pay) for one in order to be included — another cost that it wouldn’t have to worry about dealing with had the government just let things be as they are.
My question is this, does the SLA have the legal authority to ban services based on their cost?
If I understand this correctly, since the proposed ban would not apply to restaurants without liquor licenses, would this not give them a market advantage for take out? People could still use Grubhub as before as long as they bought from restaurants without liquor licenses. If the imposed 10% rate is a money loser for the delivery trade, wouldn't they stop servicing establishments where they are forced to charge a money losing rate? The result might be that restaurants with liquor licenses would no longer be able to play. Restaurants with liquor licenses would just lose business in the contractor carry out market as I see it.
re Sorry, Dems: It’s OK to ask for foreign help in a criminal justice investigation
The wife and I got into it over this matter the other day. Her assertion is that 1) foreigners shouldn't be involved in gathering info on Americans and 2) in any event, their investigative methods must be inferior and slipshod, thus rendering any uncovered evidence invalid.
Of course if the targets are Republicans, it's okay.
Have you all not heard of Five Eyes Alliance, later expanded to Nine Eyes and Fourteen Eyes? The globalists ar one big spying organization trading data among themselves on every thing you do, say, buy...
A similar controversy occasionally erupts in my little town, when brick-and-mortar restaurants complain about the unfair advantage enjoyed by food trucks. The solution: regulate them out of existence, for fairness.
