Are you freaking kidding me. Disney could not be more accommodating to the disabled if they tried.

The "disabled line" is generally shorter by a factor of 10 or more, so that these folks get on rides very fast. They get on so fast, there are wealthy people who HIRE THE DISABLED and have them go to Disneyland with their families, so they can skip the lines and get in quick. It's more like Disney makes their nondisabled guests wait too long in lines.

During a March 27 education hearing, Assemblyman Kevin Kiley, R-Granite Bay, lashed out over a Democratic proposal to prevent Teach for America members from working in the state’s poorest schools.

Assemblywoman Cristina Garcia, D-Bell Gardens, proposed the bill because she worried that Teach for America does more harm than good by enabling schools to cycle inexperienced educators into classrooms. Teach for America is a nonprofit organization that recruits college graduates for two-year positions in public schools.

A Teach for America alum himself, Kiley grilled Garcia, for 20 minutes, accusing her of drafting an unconstitutional bill that would discourage aspiring teachers from entering the workforce.

“We have 7,000 TFA alums in California who know better than anyone that our public education system is failing our kids,” Kiley said at the hearing. “We have a committee here and a Legislature that is not focused on kids and that operates a default mode of policymaking that’s anti-student, anti-teacher and anti-equity.”

For a period, the company was majority-owned by Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC. The company reduced its stake to 25% in 2012, and sold its remaining stake back to the company in 2013. Concurrently, Carlyle Group replaced HTC as a minority shareholder, alongside Dr. Dre and Iovine in late 2013. On August 1, 2014, Apple Inc. acquired Beats for US$3 billion in a cash and stock deal, the largest acquisition in Apple's history.

Well, yes. California legislators will proclaim that this is for the workers, but we all know it's really about money. I work in an industry that uses a lot of independent contractors. They like being contractors. They enjoy the freedom of owning their own business. This bill, if passed, will have a ripple effect across the California economy.

"And that is why today, we say to the private health insurance companies, whether you like it or not, the United States will join every other major country on earth and guarantee healthcare to all people as a right. All Americans are entitled to go to the doctor when they're sick and not go bankrupt after staying in the hospital. We will no longer accept the absurdity of paying almost twice as much per capita on health care, while we have a lower life expectancy and worse health care outcomes than many other countries," the senator said.

His platform is terrible, and I strongly doubt he can defeat President Trump. On the other hand, he seems to be closer to where the Democrat electorate is and he's easily less corrupt than Hillary Clinton (not hard to do). Go Bernie I suppose.

Alcohol is literally poison, sold everywhere, at every concert, sporting event, restaurant, hotel, grocery store, corner store...

I live in a town that has a ton of bars in its downtown. I know that cops hang out around the area right around last call to pop the drunk drivers. I'm glad they do. We had an incident fairly recently where a guy got in his truck and mowed down like 15 people on the main drag of downtown. No one died, but people were hurt. He was very drunk.

We don't really have restrictions on when and who can sell alcohol, other than the various types of liquor licenses. I've bought beer plenty of times at gas stations, which is apparently weird in some states. We can't drink out in public or on the street. Not legally, at least.

I don't know how I feel about a 4 AM last call. I'd like to see more data on crash statistics in towns/states that have 4 am last calls and 2 am last calls. Do those 2 hours actually make a difference? Drunks are going to drink as much as they can no matter the cut off time.

As a Nevadan, alcohol laws are always weird to me. We basically have none:

-No last call

-No ABV limits (I'm looking at you, Utah)

-Alcohol can be sold anywhere at any time of day (No Sunday or early morning restrictions)

I'm not sure what effect this has on drunk driving. I assume that in Cali, all of the cops are out at 2am looking for drunk drivers.

I've been to a lot of gyms in my lifetime, and I can honestly say I've never experienced a "bro-heavy" gym. Sure, there were some bros there, but mostly it was middle-aged women on the cardio machines or in classes and a good number of people working the free weights.

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of a themed gym. Anything that gets people more active is a positive in my book. I guess I just understand that literally nobody cares what you do at the gym, how out of shape you are, or what your workout is (unless you're doing something incorrectly that could potentially be dangerous).

Well, maybe some do, but they're assholes, so why do you care what they think anyway?
