you should apply to shutting the fuck up

I know you think that you need to be a millionaire to live well in America.
I'm telling you that isn't true.

Cuba also evacuates people into caves that Fidel built to defend against American invaders. The low death toll is incredible considering they probably haven't built a new house since the 1960s. I am going to visit in December.

@woofy no I don't live in Miami anymore, but my family does. They're doing OK, just lost power and had a tree across the street come down onto the neighbor's house, but they seem fine just have a bit of roof damage. Thx for your concern buddy  8)

just power out for a week! the storm itself wasn't too bad in this area

They the only country in the western world where all the cars are from the 60s and 50s.
It is supposed to look very old school.
omg so cool

great point re cuba preparedness too! in USA the government says "okay yeah, you guys should probably evacuate" then sits back while people just scatter like cockroaches. no planning/infrastructure to evacuate or house evacuees, so people end up gridlocked & stranded out of gas on the interstates, or pay sky high airfare on limited flights then get stranded at airports anyway when flights end up grounded, and that's assuming they're not just stuck at home because they're physically or financially unable to travel.

capitalism so bad

They scuttled a law in florida that would have required nursing homes to have back up generators for AC, because the businesses wanted to save some money.  9 people died in the heat after irma.

You think all business owners are rich or something?

if you can't afford basic safety precautions you shouldn't be owning a business in the first place.

In the aforementioned case regarding the nursing home neglect will undoubtedly be found and these business owners will probably be shut down.

Most regulation stifles business growth which in turn slows job creation.

most regulation is necessary and there's no such thing as a free market.

Say you wanted to start a deli at the corner of your street. Can you tell me how much the start up costs would be?
