Why don't they stop being jerks about it and just solve the problem with optimization that balances everyone's interests?
Shared ridesharing is bad, in part, because people are unreliable and unpredictable.

+Hillary Clinton For President 2016 what is wrong with this picture? You're in the danger zone. Even if you get the nomination: your base is weak. Maybe the center is actually to your left?

Martial Arts  - 
 
In AWA, Sato Shihan sometimes explains ushiro techniques as a knife attack, where uke is trying to get behind nage. This makes even more sense now.
I remember a class back in the early 1990's, we were working on some knife techniques. Standard type knife defense stuff you see in martial arts classes. . At that time we had a middle-aged Cambodian woman in the class a...

+Freedom Armory Sometimes Sensei Sato demonstrates with Nage having a knife, and Uke is avoiding it. The real trick to most of the ushiro techniques in our dojo is to start moving with a small sliding step away from uke as he crosses behind, forcing uke to speed up to get behind Nage. Then Nage keeps moving, stepping forward with the foot on the opposite side of Uke's approach, to keep Uke accelerating behind Nage. Uke has to run a larger half circle around Nage's smaller quarter-circle movement.

California Democrats roll over to (or are) corporate interests that Bernie won't, and Hillary will make back room deals with.
Most of Sen. Bernie Sanders ' supporters in California say they expect that come November, Hillary Clinton will be elected president — and, by and large, they're OK with that.

It's funny how certain people treat fetuses like individuals with rights and children, employees, like chattel. On one hand, operating enterprises which enjoy First Amendment tax shelters, on the other hand seeking to curtail state regulation. It's also funny how these people decry Islamic Sharia theocracies, but attempt to elevate their own very modern mythologies above the law. Members of a privileged class, ascendant through decades of relentless political campaigning, maintain a narrative which casts themselves as victims of society.
The case was brought by religious groups that objected to having to provide insurance coverage for contraception for their female employees.

The real problem with American politics is corruption.
Bribery fuels political instability -- and it's a propaganda tool for terrorists.

Story
Tagline
There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)
