Waiting for someone to pull out of a parking spot is usually a mistake.
Some fucking street kid told me to smile one time. Fucking hate those people.
Sarcasm font not working?
Steven is correct. Zipper merge is usually the proper protocol. Most Oregonians think it's "cutting," but really they are slowing traffic down by not filling both lanes and merging smoothly. I'm glad somebody has actually taken the time to write a "scientific" explanation for why this is the correct way to drive.
The WSJ had a good analysis piece on this yesterday. It said the main reason was actually Iran. Iran has nuclear and (I would presume) chemical weapons. It is also Assad's biggest regional supporter militarily. Obama thinks that allowing Assad to use chemical weapons sets a bad precedent for Iran was the thesis.
Personally, I think that a bombing is probably a good idea, but more in depth involvement is not.
The big problem is these people can't govern themselves, and no amount of intervention is going to fix that. Stability is more important than idealistic pursuits like "democracy" or "freedom." These are just words. Stability = peace= less people dying and more food and basic necessities being met. If it comes at the cost of ideals, so be it.
The rebellion can prevail if it proves it can rule first by getting enough support to win. If not, Assad should stay. But use of chemical weapons should not be tolerated by the international community.
An interesting article but I was a little distracted by the repeated assertion that racism is a big part of this issue. At least, I didn't feel the article really explained any relationship between teen pregnancy and racism.
Safeway doughnuts? ...hmmm. I don't think so. But about the smelly disgusting homeless people who live on the streets of Portland, there should be a smell test. Smelling bad isn't a constitutional right, is it? So they can discriminate based on that. Problem solved.
