The article talks about it only very briefly, but the law apparently includes advertising restrictions on companies trying to sell junk food to kids.

That's basically what we are told to do in retail these days...Do nothing aside from using non-accusing word. Let security, the police, or lost prevention deal with it. Touching a customer (or thief) can get you terminated just to avoid a potential lawsuit.

Large companies are more afraid of lawsuits than theft or violence. The later are temporary. The lawsuit will drain money and would "look bad" in the media depending on how things are spun.

The couple latest news in this thread shows that capitalism is working just fine, nothing weird about that. The alternative is the government robbing our hard earned money to provide to the lazy plebs and we can't have that can we?

We Tried To Uncover The Long-Lost 'American Sailor Moon'
And Found Something Incredible:


"In 1993, before the magical girl anime Sailor Moon was released in the U.S., there
was an alternate vision for it. It was an American vision. A total remake of the show
with Saturday morning-style animation, intercut with footage of real-life, all-American
high school teens.

“Politically correct,” in the words of its creators, the proposed Sailor Moon would star
Hispanic, black, and Asian Sailor Scouts, one using a wheelchair. The girls rode
surfboards that rocketed them into space, to the tune of a bubblegum pop soundtrack.

A little psychedelic, the miscellaneous artifacts of this Sailor Moon together form
either a pitch-perfect vision for a ‘90s American children’s show or, to die-hard anime
fans, an irreverent Sailor Moon funhouse mirror straight from hell’s grimy content
buckets.

This red, white, and blue Sailor Moon plan never got into orbit, and in 1995, the
original, Japanese Sailor Moon anime began airing on U.S. television. 25 years ago,
the Americanized version was a narrowly-avoided disaster, but a disaster that
apparently left behind a 17-minute pilot episode, which I decided long ago that I had
to try to find."

Why would someone want to find this? It sounds like something that would melt your
eyes (and probably your brain too) if you tried to watch it.

For once, a story about racist white people calling the cops on black people doing normal things ends with a happy note.

How an Ex-Cop Rigged McDonald’s Monopoly Game
and Stole Millions:


"Jerome Jacobson and his network of mobsters, psychics, strip club owners, and drug
traffickers won almost every prize for 12 years, until the FBI launched Operation ‘Final
Answer.’"


"Dent’s investigation had started in 2000, when a mysterious informant called the FBI
and claimed that McDonald’s games had been rigged by an insider known as “Uncle
Jerry.” The person revealed that “winners” paid Uncle Jerry for stolen game pieces in
various ways. The $1 million winners, for example, passed the first $50,000
installment to Uncle Jerry in cash. Sometimes Uncle Jerry would demand cash up
front, requiring winners to mortgage their homes to come up with the money.
According to the informant, members of one close-knit family in Jacksonville had
claimed three $1 million dollar prizes and a Dodge Viper.

When Dent alerted the McDonald’s headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, executives
were deeply concerned. The company’s top lawyers pledged to help the FBI, and faxed
Dent a list of past winners. They explained that their game pieces were produced by a
Los Angeles company, Simon Marketing, and printed by Dittler Brothers in Oakwood,
Georgia, a firm trusted with printing U.S. mail stamps and lotto scratch-offs. The
person in charge of the game pieces was Simon’s director of security, Jerry Jacobson.

Concern about spycams grows in Korea

I'll start by saying that I have no truck with snooping with video cameras. I did find this odd, though:

Quote:
Although concerns about spy cams and illicit filming are far from new in South Korea — the activity was dubbed “molka” years ago — the problem appears to be growing.

In response to a growing outcry, teams organized by the police have sprung into action. Armed with infrared scanners that can spot a lens and devices that detect electrical charges, they spend hours hunting for cameras installed by peeping Toms in changing rooms and public bathrooms.

And yet the small team — which included two schoolgirls and two housewives, along with a number of dedicated police officers — didn’t find a single camera during the inspection.

It wasn’t a surprise. These inspections in South Gyeongsang have been going on since last September, but they’ve never actually found a hidden camera. In fact, though there are scores of such teams all over the country, police officials say none has ever found a camera — but perhaps that’s not the point.

Drunk Girl tells Officer not to arrest her cause she's white.

Really? This might be a nice change of pace of racist white people calling the police on black people doing normal things.


So no matter if your a legal immigrant who follows the law, you still be denied citizenship and be deported because you follow the law? How mess up is that?

Thinking her privilege and presence might remedy her lawlessness, after Cutshaw was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence, she begged South Carolina’s finest not to haul her down to the station. “I’m a pretty girl, please, don’t make me go,” she said — a plea Bluffton officers rejected.

Later, at the precinct, police officer Baker Odom wrote in his report, Cutshaw went further. She said she was also a “thoroughbred” and “white, clean girl,” Odom wrote. When he asked what that meant, Cutshaw replied, “You’re a cop, you should know what that means based on the people that come in this room,” according to the report.

The soon-to-be 33-year-old real estate agent was stopped Sunday about 1:45 a.m. after she ignored a stop sign and sped her white Ford Fusion through a four-way intersection.

[When asked by the officers why they] should not arrest her. Between sobs and apologies, she explained: She had no criminal record, graduated with honors from an accredited university, and was a sorority sister, cheerleader and member of the National Honor Society.
Apparently she hasn't done much with all those advantages if she's still hanging on to her college (sorority) and high-school (NHS) years.

This morning on Fox and Friends, the defeat of "communist Japan" by the valiant Americans.

It's one thing to be biased; it's quite another to be stupid and/or uneducated. Especially if you're hosting a "public affairs" program.

What a bunch of lying drunks. Someone completely forgot that the US were allied with the communists during WW2 to defeat the worst of fascism worldwide.

Sounds more like something that would happen in Scotland or New Zealand, honestly.
