They’re not creating jobs, they’re creating profits.  Tax those profits, I say!  Give them a reason to put it into the employee’s hands if they don’t want the government to have it.

This is why accessibility matters.

Have you ever been waiting for the ATM to dispense your monies and seen that little headjack for blind people and wondered, hey, how does a blind person use an ATM? This video shows what happens when Tommy Edison, a blind man, uses the ATM for the first time. It takes him 11 minutes.

Overall, it seems like whoever designed the ATM didn’t ask a blind person to try it out first.

Exactly.  There’s no excuse for this.

…Racism is a survival mechanism entrenched in our DNA.  It is not unlike the male proclivity to want to procreate with every attractive female he sees. It is how we banded together to compete more effectively for scarce food and territory.  Civilization is our mechanism for beating these impulses, but it is imperfect.  We will always have flash points at the intersections, which is why America has the most racism but is also the least racist country in the world.

So show some gentility all you atheist ladies and defer to the man, mmmkay?
