I was dead set against them (**** Commies) when I was younger, but as I got older my experience with unions has mostly been positive in my life, that and my work experience without them changed my mind about them. That and a whole load of other s*** has changed my mind about a bunch of stuff.
I was part owner of a company and worked in two different unions. The worst people I saw were the union people, in that system there are 9 ways to Sunday to cheat the system, and I saw some of the worst employees keep their jobs with backing from the union on what should've been fireable offenses.
That’s in LA, not San Fran, dumb ***
As to San Fran,
“San Francisco’s rate of property crimes – including shoplifting (Figure 1) – has plummeted to its lowest level since reliable crime statistics were first compiled 45 years ago. That’s a cause for celebration, right?
Apparently not. Ignoring these clear trends, the May 21, 2021, “California Today” column by the New York Times’ San Francisco Bureau Chief Thomas Fuller declared in alarming tones: “The mundane crime of shoplifting has spun out of control in San Francisco, forcing some chain stores to close.”
Fuller’s evidence? Anecdotes, quips, and claims from spokespersons for Walgreens that thefts from its stores in San Francisco are “four times the chain’s national average, and that it had closed 17 stores, largely because the scale of thefts had made business untenable,” and from CVS branding the city “one of the epicenters of organized retail crime.” In fact, Walgreens is closing hundreds of stores nationwide in a cost-cutting measure, and the trend toward fewer but larger retail thefts is occurring statewide, not just in San Francisco. Since 2016, thefts valued at $400 or more have risen by 19 percent, while thefts valued at under $50 have fallen by 21 percent.
Why did the New York Times see fit to print an article sensationalizing San Francisco’s supposed “surge” in shoplifting that Fuller claims has worsened since he moved to the city in 2016? “The retail executives and police officers emphasized the role of organized crime in the thefts. And they told the supervisors that Proposition 47, the 2014 ballot measure that reclassified nonviolent thefts as misdemeanors if the stolen goods are worth less than $950, had emboldened thieves,” Fuller wrote.
“The one trend we are seeing is more violence and escalating — and much more bold,” said Commander Raj Vaswani, the head of the investigations bureau at the San Francisco Police Department (SFPD). “We see a lot of repeat offenders.”
In fact, San Francisco’s rates of violent and property crime peaked in 1992 and have since fallen”
There was a major bust of organized shop lifting in San Francisco in October 2020, in “Trump’s America.”
Meanwhile, from a local San Fran newspaper:
“What you no doubt haven’t heard, because it garnered only one article in mainstream media, is that Walgreens settled a $4.5 million wage theft suit last November for robbing its California employees for years. According to plaintiffs, Walgreens failed to pay minimum wages, overtime wages, compensate for meal periods, refused to authorize and permit rest periods, lied on wage statements and engaged in an assortment of alleged illegal business practices — fleecing millions from its low wage workers. Millions that couldn’t be spent on food, diapers, rent, life-saving medicine. Millions whose absence no doubt caused countless hours of stress and mental wear and tear to the check-to-check workers that money was owed.
But because it was spread out over years and the victims were disproportionately people of color — and the suspects faceless executives — it went virtually unnoticed.
Assuming the man in The Video stole the maximum allowed for his misdemeanor charge — $949 — this would mean the Walgreens wage theft story involved 474,183% more theft yet resulted in one story compared to 309. Why? Corporate wage theft, severalstudies show, is much more prevalent than all other forms of theft — larceny, robbery, car theft — combined, yet is almost never covered in our media, outside of a handful of legal trade publications.”
tl;dr, is anyone shocked that the guy who repeatedly advocated for people on welfare to be indefinitely stripped of voting rights would share a video of a black man committing property crime and refer to it as “Biden’s America?”
I for one am not.
What Cowboys fans are about to find out is that Dan Quinn’s scheme is have a HOF free safety, have a HOF corner, have a HOF MLB, Pro Bowl SS, and Pro Bowl pass rushers…
Without those things his scheme doesn’t really work that well.
PFF views a deep ball as a throw 20+ yards down the field.
I think when most people here refer to a deep pass they're talking about throws 40+ yards down the field.
We've seen countless times Matt under throwing a wide open Julio on those 40+ throws.
this franchise has seen players wear the pants too much the past few years. Freeman, Takk and Beasley all did whatever they wanted over the franchise. Don't want to see another soft regime. They hold the cards.
The cannon pulling the trigger has got to be salivating. I mean that last guy y’all had couldn’t hold a candle to the firepower the new guy brings. Gone are the days of this extraordinary core of receivers waiting for the rainbow pass to flutter ever so gently into their waiting arms.
