    • Anti-Google Protesters Disrupt San Jose Mayor's State Of The City Address
      In San Jose protesters disrupted the mayor's State of the City Address, chanting, "Say it loud, say it clear, Google is not welcome here."

      It's a tactic not seen very often.

      They were fired up and the protests were loud and disruptive by design.

      "Not our mayor!" they yelled.

      "People are fearing that they won't be able to live in San Jose," said Serve the People San Jose member Liz Gonzalez.

    • Employers blocked from discriminating against staff using marijuana in Maine
      There's a guy at my workplace that sometimes smokes dope on his breaks. We can always tell when he's stoned, he fucks up paperwork, does calendar entries wrong or not at all, and worse. Normally he does excellent work but after smoking, his work quality drops to that of someone that's been on the job for only one day.

    • PETA plans billboard memorializing cows killed in Utah crash
      The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is planning to place a billboard near the location where several cows died in an I-84 on-ramp crash last week.

      The billboard, when posted, will feature a photo of a cow with the message, "I'm ME, Not MEAT. See the Individual. Go Vegan." The organization is still finalizing the details of when and where the billboard will be placed but are hoping to put it near the crash site, PETA spokeswoman Amber Canavan said.

      "As horrific as this crash was, this type of tragedy is happening to these animals every day inside the slaughterhouses that are totally preventable," she said. "Eating meat is completely unnecessary - we can just get these animals right off the road and not have these needless deaths happening every day."

      The billboard is in response to a Nov. 22 crash, when a truck carrying 96 cows en route to Colorado tipped over while taking an on-ramp from I-15 to I-84. Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Mike Loveland said the truck was likely driving too fast when it took the turn. The crash created a giant gash in the trailer hauling the cows and many spilled out from the overpass and fell onto the freeway below.

      Utah Highway Patrol never released an exact total of cow fatalities but several were killed. Some cows survived the wreck and were wrangled close to the crash site.

    • Arizona might allow people to pay taxes via bitcoin
      http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/02/07/arizona-might-allow-people-to-pay-taxes-via-bitcoin.html

      Digital currency can be used to pay for flights, furniture, music and even pizza. Now, pretty soon in Arizona, you may be able to use bitcoin to pay your taxes.

      Arizona has bills on the floor that would revolutionize the way government considers cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin. One bill would recognize bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as currency, not a commodity. The other would allow taxpayers in Arizona the option to pay their taxes with bitcoin.

      "It's one of a litany of bills that we're running that is sending a signal to everyone in the United States, and possibly throughout the world, that Arizona is going to be the place to be for block chain and digital currency technology in the future," Arizona State Rep. Jeff Weninger said.

      Weninger said the bill he co-sponsored, which passed the Senate Finance Committee with a vote of 4 - 3, will make it easier for people in the state to pay their taxes.

    • New York Lawmakers: Make Tide Pods look less appetizing
      http://abc7ny.com/3043393/

      ALBANY, New York -- Two New York state lawmakers are calling for a state law to require new packaging for laundry detergent pods following the dangerous trend of people eating the toxic items.

      State Sen. Brad Hoylman and Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas plan to detail their proposal Tuesday in Albany. Both are Democrats from New York City.

      They say the state could lessen the risk of poisonings by prohibiting packaging that makes the pods look like candy.

      Wow, what does this say about how stupid Americans are?

    • Indiana man sues claiming First Amendment right to give cops the finger
      http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/372381-indiana-man-sues-for-right-to-give-cops-the-finger

      An Indiana man who was ticketed for flashing a rude hand gesture at an Indiana State Police trooper filed a federal lawsuit last week claiming his constitutional rights protect his freedom of expression.

      Mark May flashed a cop the middle finger in August after he said Indiana State Police Master Trooper Matte Ames cut him off to pull over another driver, according to the Tribune Star in Terre Haute.

      Ames then pulled May over and gave him a ticket for provocation, a Class C infraction that carries a penalty of a fine up to $500.

      In a lawsuit filed in the Southern District of Indiana by the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, May argues his gesture is protected by the First Amendment.

    • The US cannabis industry is growing insanely fast -- there are now more legal cannabis workers than dental hygienists
      http://www.businessinsider.com/more-marijuana-industry-workers-than-dental-hygienists-in-the-us-2018-2/?r=US&IR=T

      The legal cannabis industry is posting some eye-popping job-growth numbers.

      The total number of job postings for the cannabis industry increased by 445% in 2017, as a host of states - including Nevada and Massachusetts - legalized the plant for adult consumption. That's up from just 18% growth in 2016, according to a recent study from ZipRecruiter, a job-search website.

      Nine states and Washington D.C. have legalized cannabis, though it's considered an illegal, Schedule I drug at the federal level.

      Because of that trend, there are now more cannabis workers than dental hygienists in the US, according to Marijuana Business Daily, a financial-news publication focusing on the cannabis industry. The higher end of their estimate range suggests there were 230,000 people employed in the US legal cannabis industry in 2017, whereas there were 201,000 dental hygienists, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    • A Baltimore County jury on Friday awarded more than $37 million in damages in the civil lawsuit brought by the family of Korryn Gaines, the 23-year-old Randallstown woman who was shot and killed by county police after a six-hour standoff in 2016.

      The jury of six women said the first shot fired by Cpl. Royce Ruby at Gaines, killing her and injuring her then-5-year-old son, Kodi, was not reasonable and therefore violated their civil rights under state and federal statutes.

      The jury awarded more than $32 million to Kodi in damages, and $4.5 million for his sister, Karsyn.

    • Most of these Winter Olympic 'sports' are nothing more than niche hobbies such as biathlon, cross country, curling, bobsled, luge, figure skating, moguls, short track, ski jumping, etc. They're not real sports and most Americans don't give a fig about them.

      But somehow the amazing Americans have been able to earn the second most gold medals thus far even though the Europeans concentrate very heavily on these niche sports. Heck, a number of these hobby activities are the NATIONAL SPORTS of Euro countries.

      America, it never ceases to amaze me.
