“And since NBC made it TiVo-resistant by plugging it in after a live event (in which I had no interest whatsoever) that would end "whenever" and has no plans to re-air it in a normal slot, they've told me they don't want me as a viewer of this series.
Same thing with their other new show from tonight.”
“"No. Employers pay the unemployment taxes, not the employees"
It's part of the overall cost of having that person on the payroll, just like health insurance and the other half of Social Security, and all the other stuff that you wouldn't be paying out if the position didn't exist, right?
And if the employee didn't deliver that much value and more to your business, they wouldn't be there, right?
So it's all stuff they earned, so it's really their money and not yours.”

“I'm retired...and used to do payroll..the SUI is state unemployment insurance, and is taken out of the employees pay...the employer paid half..did they stop doing that?”

“I get that. But if a million dollar earner can't collect unemployment, then why would we continue to tax the employer on that persons wages?”

“If it had said "...a primitive culture foreign to her..." it would have have conveyed the idea while acknowledging that it was she who was the interloper, and not they, but as worded it's insensitive to what was done to native Americans.”

“Again you're taking it out of context, they emphasize the fact that the girls are foreign settlers. You are looking for ways to be offended. I read the whole thing and did not take that word the way you chose to. It doesn't even make sense the other way in the context of the review.”

“The IMDb refers to one of the white girls taken by a raiding party as having been "...Forcibly immersed into a primitive foreign culture..."
Those primitive savages just never understand that when the white man shows up to take your land, the only gracious thing to do is evaporate and take your "foreign" culture with you back to where it...Oh, wait...
(Unless they need you to hang around for a year or so to help them through the first winter and teach them about the local flora and fauna enough to enable them to exploit it.)”

“You're taking it out of context and misinterpreting the way foreign is used. They aren't talking about a separate nation in this case. Lemme use the definition in the sentence to explain "...forcibly immersed into a primitive [strange and unfamiliar] culture." They used the term foreign correctly. For someone who is not native american, nor been exposed to it, as would have been par for the course of the time. Their culture would be primitive strange and unfamiliar.
I've no interest in the movie, there's likely a ton of stuff to have issue with I'm sure. Like the fact that the Native Americans will likely be seen being abusers of the girl, despite the fact that while raiding parties happened, and it certainly would be terrifying for someone not part of that culture, they didn't mistreat adopted members of their tribe, those people became from what I can tell full members.
The term foreign just isn't one of those things because it's been used correctly.”
“She doesn't say how long ago she bought the house or whether she's underwater on it, but I'd think that the central Virginia housing market is closer to Rust Belt than Inside The Beltway, so selling might not have produced any equity.
Also, she was well into her '50s when she got laid off in '07, which means being likely not to get a full time gig no matter where she moves.”

“She has 60 acres in Central Virginia and a mortgage of $90K....she is well in the black there. Lots of folks in Northern Virginia have been buying up the larger parcels in Central Virginia and Northern Neck so the market is there, I know.”
“The way she was driving made it the equivalent of a deadly weapon, and a real and present danger, regardless of her intent.”

“Look, You have no tenable position here to support using deadly force in this situation.
You are using speculation and an incomplete observation to base your position.
In a court of law, you would be overruled.
I also tend to think you are allowing a racial bias to influence your argument.
If so, you are what is wrong with this country right now....
Btw, the officer was fired!
“When a cop pulls you over and writes you a speeding ticket, you have been accused of the crime of exceeding the speed limit and it's really a version of being placed under arrest, at which point there are procedures to be followed and formalities to be oberved.
Saying "No thanks" and just driving away is not on the very short list of available options.
And the officer who fired at her tires was attempting to prevent her from speeding and endangering her passengers and everyone else on the road for yet a third time, since she'd already done it twice, the second time while fleeing justice.”
“If they write you a ticket, they're charging you with a crime.
And it has to be handled that way.
Signing the ticket is agreeing to either pay the fine or show up for court, and then being released on one's own recognizance--it's a kind of bail, but you don't have to put up any money or sign anything that lets them sell your property to get the money if you don't show.
Once a cop pulls you for speeding and writes that ticket, it has to either be handled that way or you have to get hauled in right then. He can't change his mind and tear it up.
“He wasn't trying to shoot the kids, or any other persons.
He was trying to shoot the tires.
The driver had already endangered the lives of her passengers and others on the road with one high speed chase, she wasn't entitled to best 2 out of 3.”

“I agree that the mother is one strange puppy. She needs to be investigated, which is sure to happen. But shooting at a moving vehicle, even at the tires, obviously puts the people in it at grave danger. The other officer's action in bashing the window was also just plain hooliganism. I mean it is not as if the driver was going to get away. The whole challenge was to arrest her without putting the kids in harm's way. Their response was criminally negligent!”
