    Having worked in a place where violence was a daily occurrence, it is easy. That said, there is not enough information and far to many questions/possibilities.

    Taking this off topic, this question is really a fundamental problem with our country. On one hand, that guy thought it was acceptable to ram an employee with a shopping cart, an act of violence. On the other hand, the first response was to respond to the violence with a violent act, rather than the man with a shopping car possibly acting for a reason other than intent to harm. As I indicated above, I worked in a place where violence occurred on a daily basis, but the reason for any violence towards me really had nothing to do with anything I did. When teaching females, some of it was just because I was a male. So the guidelines we had laid out were based on the motivation of the violence was not because of something we did.

    That said, there is not enough information.

    edit - Okay, after seeing the additional posted video, it appears the shopper was the continued aggressor. Still have a problem with the way this is acceptable (and, yes, the current President has escalated this, but he is not the cause).

    When I changed my avatar for the pandemic and now the BLM movement, I hesitated for several days because of that connectivity. And as a mod, I think that is even more important.

    btw, I also like how you have positioned her in the lower right with the relative absence of anything else in the picture.

    They will probably have a double feature: Birth of a Nation followed by Plandemic.

    And MLB is planning on having fans in the stands. Yeah, nothing could go wrong.

    This sentence:

    “Look, I think we are all tired of this politicization of the China virus,” Navarro said.

    My emphasis.

    Number of children needing hospitalization due to covid in Florida is increasing

    I understand how some politicians would play Russian roulette with the life of little kids but the number of parents that would is what is really shocking to me.

    It’s even easier with pepper spray. ******** that guy, I’m glad he was broadcast on tv writhing in a pool of spilled milk. Can pretty much guarantee he wouldn’t have rammed a man asking him to put a mask on.

    I don't know about this nursing home need. In 10 minutes on the internet I can find 10 plots more shaky than the one your aunt believes in.

    The Marlin situation is beginning to look worse and worse. While in Philadelphia, 4 Marlin players tested positive. Another round of tests were ordered for the rest of the players and staff, but the results were not back prior to their game against the Phillies. Rather than postpone the game until the test results were returned, they played the game. The next day, 10 additional players and staff returned positive. Since the tests were collected prior to the game, this means those 10 players were positive and possibly contagious prior to the game...

    Just stupid... The good news is that contact between players on opposing teams is relatively minor in baseball with significant time spent socially distanced...

    OK, yeah, but I reference you back to her husband Denny allegedly forcing her to live on the road in a chicken costume and her standing up at his funeral and thanking everyone for coming, but she knows he's really in hiding.

    Also, my wife's best friend's daughter has the COVID, and she has an existing heart condition. This makes me really sad, because no teenager should have to deal with this, even though her mother is a MAGA Kool-Aid swiller.

    I really wish it was her mother that had it because I hate that bitch

    I'm pretty sure that was in the 2016 Republican platform in their low-income housing section.

    You know, I married into a whole family of pretty fucking racist people, but by God, if there was anything they hated more than blacks, hispanish, furriners, queers, it was the goddamned republicans

    1918 was not as different as 2020, that is not a good thing.
