Starbucks Plans To Install Needle-Disposal Boxes In Certain Locations, by Dalvin Brown, at usatoday.com. The old bathroom policy at Starbucks stated that unless you were a paying customer you were not allowed to use their bathrooms. But that policy changed after national outrage was sparked when two African American males were arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks after being told they couldn’t use the bathrooms because they were not paying customers. Because of the outrage, Starbucks changed the policy by allowing anyone entering a store to use their bathrooms. Because of the new policy, their bathrooms are now being used by drug users which leaves blood and syringes in their bathrooms. So instead of getting rid of the new policy that caused the unhealthy situation in the first place, Starbucks is going to train their employees to safely clean up these hazardous conditions. Starbucks is essentially going to try to cure the symptom of the problem they originally created by their new bathroom policy.

Indiana Police Officer Gets Shot By Fellow Officer Who Was Shooting At An Aggressive Dog, by Trevor Peters, at wthitv.com. Is this a pattern? I posted this article (Read and Watch Here) a month ago about an officer killing a women as he attempted to shoot an aggressive dog. These are examples of ‘trained’ officers firing shots without knowing where the bullets will end up. Should the training related to aggressive dogs be changed? I’ve had aggressive dogs attack me when I used to go jogging. When they did, I would face the attacking dog and kick them in the mouth as hard as I could. That always worked.

BIAS EXISTS IN ALL MEDIA.

Human beings are far from perfect. Varying degrees of bias exists in all human endeavors. Since politics is polarizing, politics by nature is biased. No matter how much you hate politics, no one is apolitical. I don’t buy into the big government Republican / Democrat political paradigm that exists today. I don’t like big government and it’s politics that exists today. There are probably no democrat politicians I agree with and a handful of republican politicians I agree with. But that doesn’t mean I am unbiased. I am biased toward shrinking the size and scope of government and increasing individual freedom. Is that a political position? I don’t know but at least I admit that I’m biased. The media won’t even admit they are biased. No matter how obvious the bias is.
