“It's not a pretty picture. Most of the staff is gone, there are a few new people but they are inexperienced and there are dog fights all the time now at this facility. For now it is not a safe environment.”
“L.A. Dogworks is a joke. They burn through their good handlers quickly, are left with amateurs, and as a result there are dog fights at this facility ALL THE TIME. This place is NOT SAFE FOR PETS! Don't believe me? Ask the staff (well, what's left of them.....)”
“Indeed these events are taking place nationally. And they will have local impact, in some communities more than others. How does that present any sort of bias?”

“Read the comments made here by others. Lots and lots of them took from this story that it is the ONLY place this is occurring. They are under the impression that 'gun groups' somehow 'targeted' Newtown because they are mean or insensitive.
Maybe you were discerning enough, but an awful lot of your 'fellow travelers' took from this exactly what HP wanted them to. They are low information voters...”
“Sad that your point of view is so shallow and limited. There is a full spectrum of Liberalism just as there is with Conservatism. Using words like "us" and "them" in your argument simply neutralizes your point and demonstrates your ignorance.”
“Trying to figure out why this rubs me the wrong way so much and actually surprised that I have a reaction at all! Something that keeps popping into my head is what's going on in San Francisco right now. It's so expensive to live there and people are so desperate for housing that the city counsel or whoever recently reduced the minimum size requirement of dwellings in that city. People are literally being forced into these tiny spaces because they have no other choice.”

“"People are literally being forced into these tiny spaces because they have no other choice."
Well, they could choose Oakland, Berkeley, Union City, Freemont....”

“it's the same with al things. some have/use/take more than hey need and others make do with less. and the fact that housing is an investment for profit rather than a human right.”
“it is. but some of us don't need more. i would like a little more than that but i'm nearly housebound. i would rather have a small house away from people though especially where i can be out doors a lot than be hemmed in by houses on all sides. and when i say houses i mean the people in them and the noise they make and the anti social behaviours that they engage in .”
“Design wish I love this collection. Would be delightful to have a weekend place in the mountains like this, especially all dolled up for Christmas like this!
I just feel sorry for anyone who has to live in such quarters full time. I used to date someone who has the smallest studio in all of New York City (which was a beautiful space a block from Rock Center) and I always thought it made him depressed. It was very limiting; he spent as little time there as possible and had to limit his hobbies to things he could do in public spaces.”

“i suppose it depends on whether it's voluntary or not and also on the design. some of those tiny houses/apartments and other spaces are so well designed i'm green with envy. i live in a house that's badly designed and so much space is wasted.
and of course on how much time you do spent indoors. some people work a lot or go out a lot , they'd probably wouldn't need as much space as they have , other's are homely types who even work at home.”
