    [–] Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated US President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize last autumn after being requested to do so by Washington Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in worldnews

    Not even a reference to which newspaper reported it.

    And there are all these people talking about how stupid Republicans believe whatever they read on the internet.

    This country is so doomed.

    [–] Tony Evers to propose pot decriminalization in budget, medical use for cancer, PTSD, chronic pain Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in wisconsin

    You know how Wisconsin is #1 in all the worst ways when it comes to alcohol consumption? You can blame the fucking tavern league for that.

    You can blame rampant alcoholism and a culture that treats it like a joke for that. The Tavern League just makes a convenient scapegoat.

    I don't think Robin Hood stole from the rich to sell to the poor, either.

    They're just thieves. No reason to rationalize it.

    Is there some loophole where they can demand just the receipt?

    Anyone can demand anything, doesn't mean they get it.

    Of course they were. The teenage children of rich people never shoplift.

    you understand that it is illegal for employees to physically prevent people from leaving in their car, right?

    It's not a citizen's arrest.

    There's a "shopkeeper's privilege" from the English common law that's made it's way into most states' laws in one form or another. It allows a retailer to detain a suspected thief without fear of being sued for battery or false imprisonment.

    It was like a sub of petty Robin Hoods

    Who stole from the rich and kept for themselves.

    [–] Ajit Pai helped Charter kill consumer-protection rules in Minnesota Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in technology

    A court ruling that limits state regulation of cable company offerings was praised by Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, who says the ruling supports his contention that the FCC can _______.

    OMG! They can! I'm outraged.

    [–] Machines vs. cashiers: Why shoppers are so divided over self-checkout | CBC News Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in technology

    Until we can come up with some kind of jobs for retail workers who will be forced out by automation, it's irresponsible, in my opinion, to utilize any kind of automation when a human-worker alternative is available.

    [–] Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated US President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize last autumn after being requested to do so by Washington Legit_a_Mint -1 points ago in worldnews

    According to an uncited, unsourced report in an unnamed Japanese newspaper, something happened!

    It's so nice to see that Americans have responded to the challenge presented by Russian misinformation and have become such savvy, critical thinkers.

    We'll never be taken advantage of again, cuz we smurt now.

    [–] Evers wants nearly $70M in bonding to address water quality Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago * (lasted edited 3 hours ago) in wisconsin

    Don't suggest that you're giving a "more accurate summary" if you're not capable of being accurate.

    ETA: Downvote me all you want, but the difference between grants and bonding is far more significant than whatever distinction you were making about water terminology.

    [–] Big Brother takes control of Oceania (1984) Legit_a_Mint 1 points ago in fakehistoryporn

    you end up getting an authority figure who controls who can speak and what they can say.

    And you want to be that figure, not let somebody else have all the fun, right?
