    Companies (most of them) know that they aren't in business to make decisions in people's personal lives. They are in business to make a profit producing , distributing , and selling services to the general public. (if they are incorporated to serve the public at large, as opposed to a private voluntary club) Besides, they probably don't want legal disputes between staff and supervisors over who gets served, or who is obligated to serve someone. If you can't serve the general public on an impartial basis, why do you want a job or a business that entails serving the general public on an impartial basis?

    As I said above, if your business is incorporated to serve the public at large on an impartial basis, then provide services, employment, and accommodations on an impartial basis. If you can't or won't do that; then don't be go in to business on that basis. A privately offered service is not the same thing as a privately owned company serving the public as a whole. Yes, kindness, to the extent that it reflects the concept of service, would usually keep people out of trouble.

    "...has made other Southern states warier about pushing hot-button social legislation." Refresher... it was the city Charlotte that passed a bill that could easily have been exploited and which they had no authority to pass that prompted the so-called bathroom bill. The state of North Carolina did not PUSH the issue—they merely responded to it.  The answer here is to not make any laws that would either explicitly forbid OR allow anyone to use bathroom of their choice.

    Vi Lontano What they had worked. NO ONE was questioning transgender people who used the bathroom of their choice before the city of Charolette enacted their law. The law was so vague that if left it wide open to abuse. The state merely responded to it. I admit it discriminated against transgender men and women, but the state of North Carolina by no means pushed the issue—it was the city of Charolette.

    He did this often in front of their parents, using his body or a towel to hide what he was doing. Great for you that you won’t let your daughter alone with a man, but I don’t think acting like you’re better than the parents is actually all that helpful or admirable. This happens because trusted adults know how to lie and manipulate children, how to groom them, and how to make any accusations seems like lies. This isn’t on the parents ultimately, it’s only on Nassar. He’s the only predator here. Edit: The fault lies on Nassar and those who hid his crimes, as it’s very clear he was allowed by those around him to continue his predatory ways.

    Anthony Smith You're right. We absolutely need both parties. I would prefer at least a third party with some weight behind it but it certainly can't be only one. I think a completely liberal government might go too far with protecting people. We all know where good intentions can sometimes lead. I wouldn't want to live in a country with government going out of control in protecting people from themselves. IMHO some states have already gone too far in that regard. Give the information, provide warnings and consequences and resources to make healthy changes, but people have to be free to make their own choices. I've noticed that Republicans I know personally do not reflect the views expressed in online discussions. I really do think traditional Republicans see Democrats so much as the enemy that they will not give even a hint of disagreeing with their party to an outsider. I live in a very rural, conservative area and Trump is not respected here anymore. Older people with more traditional ideas of decorum and behavior are disgusted with the current behavior in the White House.

    Chris Huizinga how can a drug be considered effective when it created an epidemic of opioids addicts?
    10 hours ago Elisa Paoloni Henderson 5
    Chris Huizinga This is the case of a manufacturer who sought to maximize profit by purposely not disclosing, to both doctors and patients, the high risks of a drug that was meant to help you recover from pain due to an injury or surgery and instead turned thousands of people, of disparate economic class, into addicts. Raising the cost won't solve the problem.

    I agree, we should be targeting access to this drug.. the prescribers and the funding mechanism. Going after the company is blame-shifting. We're blaming them for what, being good at delivering an effective drug?

    10 hours ago Chris Huizinga
    Elisa Paoloni Henderson How can it not be effective? In fact, the 'epidemic' is largely a result of how effective it is. Just because it's very effective at treating conditions it was designed for doesn't mean that it's safe, or it doesn't have side-effects. You can argue that it's TOO effective. Maybe this is a case where we need drug companies to raise drug prices. 😀

    Whenever I read these opioid addiction stories, I think about all of the other addiction crises we've had in this country, and how we always turned away and decided to criminalize this illness, and now suddenly a different sector of our society is dealing with addiction in their families and in need of understanding. I agree with all of this progress, but we can't escape our callousness over the decades for marginalized communities and hopefully we can lift everyone up this time.

    Donna Eldridge - You must be an intelligent 18 year old. You know that the meds are addictive and you request something different. Or you throw the pills in the trash and just endure pain for awhile. Temporary pain for a few days is nothing compared to an addiction which will destroy your life. It is all about using your brain. We seem to have a culture now where people think they should never feel any kind of pain and we are too quick to grab for some pills.
    7 hours ago John Smith
    Donna Eldridge - The individual is ultimately responsible. But I would agree with you that a responsible dentist would not prescribe potentially addictive opioids to an 18-year-old. In fact, many dentists ARE changing their methods due to this problem. I had my wisdom teeth pulled (over two separate vists) many years ago when I was in my late teens but I don't even remember what a I took for pain. As far as I remember it was nothing very powerful. Maybe Tylenol.

    They need to start going after the doctors who hand these pills out like candy. The only time I have ever been prescribed an opiod was after my hip replacements and you are only given a limited number of pills and no refills. I don't know anyone who has ever become addicted to pain medications. I know there are addicts who take them but they are getting them on the street and their addiction did not start with a prescription for pain meds.

    Errin Maes Weigel I was prescribed opioids for migraine and was issued refills for months. I never felt the need to up my dosage or ask for extra and I voluntarily stopped taking them. My body chemistry thankfully isn’t easily addicted but many people respond differently and it isn’t something they can easily voluntarily control.

    They would word physiological dependence if the medication was reasoning compared to psychological.

    8 hours ago Becky Stelljes
    Errin Maes Weigel absolutely but in the 90’s big pharma lied about the risks and touted the benefits. Physicians don’t do their own drug research hands on. They have to rely on the studies the drug companies and FDA release and that research can be and was intentionally deceptive.

Where? What should I research? Who should I research? Are you trying to inform me or just tell me to STFU? Then you accuse me of having no empathy. That again is bunk. I have alcoholic family members.  However, I also have a chronic pain disease my doctor randomly decided to stop writing me a script for on account of new recommendations from the DEA.  So let's talk about empathy. Im basically stuck with Tylenol or Advil now. Though the Advil has given me what may now be internal bleeding. I can't have weed because, again, I'm judged by the actions of others in this country. Oh, and I nearly ingested too much Tylenol and wrecked my liver. So what am I supposed to research?

    I started traveling in the 70's. Once you left home you were off the grid so to speak -actually there wasn't a grid- but you are out of contact with everyone. Communication was via postcard or mail sent by Air Express. You carried travelers checks usually in US currency as they were easier to exchange in most banks. Every country had a different currency so had to manage money very carefully so you weren't left with lots of change in various currencies. And yes only collect calls home to the parents but only for emergencies. So many places I travelled to are no go zones these days especially in the Middle East.

    Love it. While visiting, take the vaporetto over to Torcello and visit its church with Byzantine mosaics.

    Been there - its lovely and the lacemaking experience was wonderful! I bought a tiny glass Xmas tree there complete with decorations which is out every year to remind me of my visit. 💞

    Hi Murray, yes it is regulated and licensed - depending on the size of the boat, the licensing requirements will change! 🙂

    Just wondering ... If we need to do a Drivers Licence to drive on the Roads, do Venetians need a Boat Licence to use the Canals?
