Georgia sues man for posting annotated state laws online submitted by ChillyHellion to news

Ridonkulousley 1 points 39 points (+40|-1) ago

The argument is not over the words of the law it is over the words of the annotation which were neither drawn up by legislators nor part of the legislative process. It sounds like they paid an outside source to write the annotations and placed that behind a paywall to recoup expenses and now that someone has posted them for free they are trying to sue.

They definitely have grounds but it does go against the basic concept of the state having these bills annotated.

Without attacking any other party, who do you support and why? submitted by BrazilianRider to politics

Sanders.

His beliefs tie into mine closer than any candidate I know of.

I'm a skilled worker in the medical field who makes less than what he wants for minimum wage. His views of social liberty are exciting to me.

I have no delusion he would be able to pass everything he says he wants but his consistency over the past 30 years is more than just a candidate saying whatever he needs to to be elected.

Charleston is finally working on plan to rein in those pesty roadside panhanders submitted by onesidedsquare to Charleston

Ridonkulousley 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

There are plenty of options from shelters to job centers that are in place to help people like this and no need for the panhandling. These places are notoriously small and under staffed. There is just not enough space to house everyone, that is why Crisis Ministries on Meeting will have a line out the door, if you are not there at the right time you will not get a spot for the night.

" Also its been proven that often the panhandlers aren't needy and are actual just part of a scam ring to take the money of good natured people" In what way has it been proven? Anecdotal evidence or some sort of double blind socioeconomic experiment? I question the validity of this statement without further proof.

some even have credit card scanners now. How many have been caught doing this? Google literally returns results about one person in Roswell. That is hardly enough to prohibit all panhandlers.

m not saying there are not people who need it but there are plenty of ways to be helped if they would like to be. Panhandling is not needed. More people use it as a source of there only income than use it because they are hucksters. The idea that we should take away a source of income from people who are literally begging on the streets is appalling. I could only get behind this idea if the city met it with an alternative to assist the homeless (which they are not).

This entire concept is a traditional "If I can not see it, it must not be a problem". They see homeless people, instead of dealing with that problem they are going to make a law so that they do not see the homeless anymore and it will no longer be a problem.

Bernie Sanders And Allies In Congress To Introduce $15 Federal Minimum Wage Wednesday submitted by flyawayhigh to news

They can increase prices to cover the cost or staff less people. Either way if the working class has a pay increase they will be able to make up for the nominal increase in price. Each item would only need to go up a very small bit to cover $7.50/hr increase in sales.

9/10 new businesses fail. This will make that worse and basically impossible for the average Joe to start a business. What are you basing this on besides anecdotal evidence and baseless claims?

If "[us] workers" are paid a living wage then we can buy more goods, which would greater feed into these mom and pops stores that you assume are going out of business. Your ideas only account for money out and do not account for increased money in. Past history and current experience (see: Seattle) do not support your doomsday scenario of out of work average Joes and super store takeovers.
