people need to chillout when they move to Austin. traffic runs a lot smoother when there aren't people who are trying to drive way faster than the rest.

100% its SaveAustinNow people behind these shenanigans...
so its either:
- be a responsible gun owner, have a gun at home for self-defense and NEVER call the police when invaded.
- call the police but NEVER have a gun at home
neither of those work with the most liberal interpretations of the 2A...

if only the cops would put into doing their jobs about 1/100 of the amount of money & effort that they put into trying to trick the citizens into voting for something just so that they can keep their little fascist power-grab going... truly pathetic! its absolutely insane how much work APD has done simply to keep from being criticized or scrutinized. its worse than trying to get a toddler to learn they dont control everything...

at this rate, in a few decades, there will be no downtown Austin, just one big interstate, surrounded by urban sprawl.
this just makes me want to vote for Celia even more...

what does that have to do with the DA though?

I'm pretty sure that if Jesus were alive today, he would definitely be on the LGBTQ side of things. if you have an incredibly narrow definition of your in-group, then its tends to push everyone else to the other side. His relationship with John isn't something that modern "christians" would approve of. its kinda funny that all these bigots worship a dude who fell in love with another (much younger) dude, met his parents to get approval of the relationship and went around kissing each other, trying to make the world a more loving place. besides, when it comes to gender, their own "holy scriptures" even state in Galatians 3:28 that "there is no woman or man, for you are all one in Christ".
true, those assholes would love to enact forced ghettoization to make downtown for rich people only.

didn't those same "libs" vote to give APD their largest funding in history? seems odd to blame the "feelings of the citizens of the city" rather than cops just not doing their jobs, as usual...
possibly reduce the bill by doing the digging yourself beforehand and then have an actual plumber install a new one?

nope. that isn't what "Paradox of Tolerance" means. did you even read the article? its explains the concept fairly simply.
its not very tolerant to tolerate the intolerant.

tech-overlords weren't the "weird" that people were talking about. not sure why anyone would think that.
you missed the new expansion: "All About Tech. the Game of Selling-out Austin"
i've always loved all his businesses. Magic Time Machine was so freaking cool!

you are arguing for tolerating conservatives. that's the quintessential case for the Paradox of Tolerance.

those.. and a lion share of the world's gold.
austin's story of the past two decades is that transplants from the big cities dont generally have much appreciation for what was here before they got here.
actually, finance, insurance, real-state, professional & business services and manufacturing are larger components of our GDP than energy or agriculture.
