Ugh.  Oldest boy has been awful about taking care of his teeth.  The result is a massive dental bill.  I'm pissed.

Y'know it was the first time he messed up his teeth that started the road to the end of my career.

We keep harping on the boys to brush.

They resist.

They when we go to the dentist their teeth are fine.

See Dad, we don't need to brush.....

So I get a recruiting call.

The tip of was that they wanted to know if I had experience with a particular set of software tools.

Really outdated software.

Hmmm.... if you can't afford to update your tools.... not sure I'm interested.

They want to update their tools---but they want you to be the tool.

Seattle inspector general urges elimination of routine traffic stops by police

For "safety"....

Here's the thing, law abiding people maintain their vehicles, keep registration, insurance etc... up to date and follow traffic laws.

I don't know about hard data but talking with cops I know the number of arrests result from traffic stops is significant. People who ignore the law and do crime ignore traffic laws, and often have warrants.

It might be "safer" for the criminals to eliminate traffic stops, but certainly not for the general public.

I remember. Perhaps it's time for him to get a job and contribute to the cost.

He's been looking.  Despite all the hype there aren't that many jobs out there.

Unemployment in Georgia is 4.3%, so that's understandable. Fortunately, most dentists will work out a payment plan or spread the procedure out over weeks or months, if possible. His mother should be paying a chunk of it, too.

That is explicitly what the Progs want.  They don’t even pretend otherwise anymore.

Disarm the population.

Enable and arm criminals.

The public will demand safety.

The Statists will provide "safety" with a Police State.

Her insurance will cover part of it, but not anything near to all.

Craziness on the left - California leftists want to remove penalties for using a gun when committing crimes

But making gun ownership illegal? Just fine with them.

These people are just not sane
