    Exactly - and they're non-taxable perks to the workers and deductible as business expenses to the companies (reminiscent of how the health insurance industry was created by government wage and price controls during WWII). Meanwhile the tech companies allow workers to bring their pets to work (among other intangible perks) so that the workers never want to leave work - the implied company position being that the workers are expected to never leave work. It's the tech plantation.

    The original Bloomberg article is at https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-10-05/michelin-guide-san-francisco-is-losing-inexpensive-restaurants ... and I don't see anywhere in it where the quoted assertion made by Zerohedge is even mentioned in the Bloomberg article. It might well be that the fun-loving, free-spirited socialists of San Francisco are suddenly really pissed off (which, reality check, I seriously doubt); but the Bloomberg article doesn't state that, or even allude to it. Zerohedge is putting it's own spin on it. Where Zerohedge quoted Bloomberg as: ... If you take that at face value, Zerohedge is spinning it to make it appear that the minimum wage hike is the reason for the staffing problem. In all actuality, the Bloomberg article went on with the interview, which established the reason for it as the competition for competent talent: ... so it seems that the issue isn't the minimum wage - it's that competent help is being scarfed up by tech companies willing to pay that help what it's worth (complete with benefits and normal 9 to 5 work shifts). The business model in San Francisco is changing - small "mom and pop" outlets that are affordable to the average Joe no longer work. The interviewee from above goes on to state:

    I never applied for a marriage license. I have two children. I may not have granted anything to the State ... but it doesn't change a thing, the State treats it just like I did. It's often stated that the State is the entity that claims a monopoly on the use of violence within it's borders. Add another clause to that. "The State is that entity which claims ownership of the individuals born or naturalized within its borders."

    Keep in mind: Now think back to some of the "People of WalMart" posts and give consideration to who might be lusting after you. Sorry for the nightmare fodder.

    They aren't proposing to get rid of the Electoral College. Each jurisdiction is allowed to come up with it's own method of selecting electors. In most jurisdictions it's winner take all based upon who gets the most votes in the jurisdiction. Two states base it by Congressional District. What they're doing with this measure is committing their electors based on the outcome of the popular vote in the national election. There's an argument to be made that the interstate pact may be constitutionally unsound; but there's nothing to stop individual states from implementing the new paradigm. But as SovereignMN mentioned earlier in the thread ... I can hardly wait to see every local precinct vote being challenged in court in every election when the national vote count is close.

    I didn't know they were doing it here in Illinois either. It's like it's being done in stealth. What's more there are republicans involved in introducing it. See Kansas for instance I think it ought to be getting some airtime so that people can react.

    There was a MAY2008 thread on this, but I thought I'd bump this one to provide an update... given the renewed attention the Electoral College is getting due to Hillary's whining. Six more states have been added since the OP, but none in the last three years. That brings the EV total to 165 (61% of the total needed) JURISDICTION EV
