Re: “Reader: The timing of the movement couldn't be better

DNC Rigging the Primaries, simplified
Mom and Dad: Hey kids, only 1 of you gets a playstation for xmas but they are expensive. We are asking both of you to pitch in 50 bucks to help out with the cost. (Timmy and Jane both hand over 50 bucks each)
Mom and Dad: We decided to give Jane the playstation before we even asked for the 50 bucks. Here you go Jane.
Timmy: That's not fair, can I get my 50 bucks back, or can you guys at least apologize?
Mom and Dad: No. You get neither. But next year we are giving one of you an xbox 1 and those are expensive too. We really really want you to pitch in 50 bucks again.
Timmy: I need new parents.

Re: “Reader: Drivers, manslaughter is not on your bucket list

I'm sorry you had such bad luck, but don't pretend every driver is out to get you. Even on my worst bike commute ever, I interacted with two stupid people, and about 600 other vehicles that respected me and my space.

Re: “In race to the top, women of color unfairly come in last

Black women -- and black men, who in your mind don't exist-- would be much better off, had not liberals committed one of the most racist acts in history:

"Why affirmative action failed black families where it matters most"…

This is not what you think it is.

Re: “Reader: You forgot someone at the Olympic Museum groundbreaking

No Nation State has ever survived spending more than 11 % of GDP on Healthcare !

USA currently spends 20 % of GDP, borrows the $$$ to pay the Tab.

Re: “The cost of cutting people and pay

I'm sorry, but isn't this the same thing that Whole Foods did to Natural Food Cooperatives and mom & pop markets all over the country? I get that this article is not ultimately about Amazon and Whole Foods, per se. But it's what RedBox and Netflix did to Blockbuster, as well as a whole lot of other independently owned video rental stores. It's what Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts did to smaller coffee shops, and what the fast food conglomerates did to chicken and fish shacks all over the country.

Companies/corporations of any size are obligated to provide a good customer experience, and that's what makes a customer come back. People like the food at McDonalds, and they like that it tastes the same no matter where they go. People like not having to plan their week around a video rental (when to pick it up, how to decide what to watch, when it has to be returned, etc.), and so Netflix was successful.

If customers truly value the experience of talking to a cashier, then this platform will not succeed. As someone who worked at a video store, I thought people would miss having recommendations. Turns out it's pretty easy to solicit them from Facebook, and build your Netflix queue. Video store clerks are obsolete, like rotary phones and dial-up internet. Get nostalgic all you want, but blaming corporations for keeping up with technology and consumer demand won't give these workers more desirable workforce skills. Let's focus on where jobs are headed, and how to get people trained for the jobs that are sitting unfilled right now.

Re: “Reader: Continue to fight for justice

While true this generation is the first to face these obstacles as my generation was to face what we faced and so on in history. Changing times change the future. But to suggest that past generations move out of your way is not correct. No one is just going to move aside it took to much to get where there at. Embrace past generations learn from them they got things done and so can you if both would sit down and listen if the hard heads would soften, listen, learn and compromise. But I guess Im asking to much in this you against me world we live in these days.
