There are big signs that say 300ft to the left is public beach. Doesn’t even suggest going right for public beach. The private beach area (which looks exte...

[quote]Saying a word should not get anyone fired.[/quote] Businesses should be allowed to hire and fire anyone based on their character.

I think she’s banking on being attractive and outspoken to land some kind of “far right” spotlight. A shock jock kind of thing. Her entire account is her making controversial statements to get a rise out of people. Getting fired is part of the plan. ...

[quote]Then again, Walt’s vision for Disney World was well beyond just being about rides in the traditional sense.[/quote] Yep and it’s why I prefer it (as a dad at least) over Universal.

[quote]northshorebamaman[/quote] Sorry I forgot to translate into retard: Some French lib whackos said people were getting sent to mental hospitals when they didn't need to be. They said it was Big Government's fault. This started a movement to take away mental hospitals. They weren't really ...
Why did that happen? Look up Michel Foucault and the rest of the postructuralists. I certainly appreciate their arguments in thinking critically about the power ideological state apparatuses have in subjugating people to oppressed lived experiences. I do get it. But these French philosophers...
[quote]Shrinkflation seems like a terrible strategy to apply to their business model[/quote] There’s been a Tik Tok trend to put pressure on Chipotle workers to give more food by recording them.
