Even if your local used bookseller had a copy of an obscure book that is out of print, they will not sell it on their shelves for a negotiable price, they will put it online Amazon and even sit on it for SEVERAL YEARS until some more lucrative buyer finds it online and pays beyond top-dollar.

In that case, they are operating a museum, not a bookstore.

The reverse condition also happened, local bookstores would sell seemingly rare books for high prices, then the global market arose and suddenly you could get 1000 copies of that book for very little, because of market competition.

What is really killing used bookstores are rents and fuel costs. You can't make $100 sf a month in used bookstore, but you also need foot traffic. You can park it in an out of the way place, but then you 'll need to heat or air condition it.

Cry me a river. Gouging customers in the name of "my bills are hard to pay" doesn't go well with me, I'm having enough trouble paying my own bills as it is

I warned 10 yeasr ago this was going to happen, right on this very website (well, before it was scrubbed anyway)


http://www.timesdispatch.com/opinion...1b1f2cdc0.html
They are, however, part and parcel of two broader phenomena. One is the militarization of domestic law enforcement. In recent years, police departments have widely adopted military tactics, military equipment (armored personnel carriers, flash-bang grenades) — and, sometimes, the mindset of military conquerors rather than domestic peacekeepers.
The other phenomenon is the increasing degree to which civilians are subject to criminal prosecution for noncriminal acts, including exercising the constitutionally protected right to free speech.

from the same article
“I broke the law yesterday,” writes George Mason economics professor Alex Tabarrok, “and I probably will break the law tomorrow. Don’t mistake me, I have done nothing wrong. I don’t even know what laws I have broken. … It’s hard for anyone to live today without breaking the law. Doubt me? Have you ever thrown out some junk mail that … was addressed to someone else? That’s a violation of federal law punishable by up to five years in prison.” Tabarrok notes that lawyer Harvey Silverglate thinks the typical American commits “Three Felonies a Day” — the title of Silverglate’s book on the subject.

How is anyone surprised by this? Since the North Hollywood bank robbery in the mid-1990s US law enforcement have been increasingly militarized carrying the kinds of weapons that used to be called special weapons and tactics but now seem to be standard traffic patrol. That, and as you've mentioned, the attitude and approach of policing has become more militant, aggressive, and fearful. Simply having those many weapons changes the mindset of your average police officer, they have developed an irrational fear (like so many other over-armed Americans) of our fellow Americans, and always assume the worst hence all the guns they carry (and use unfortunately)..


But hey, all the Second Amendmenters want MORE guns out there, so be it, but a heavily militarized police force is the direct consequence. Can't say folks weren't forewarned

Well, that is what we've been saying for 15 years now, but alas, folks in california and folks in texas have opposing interpretations of how to respond. Tejanos want to increase arming of civilians in retaliation to the rising militarization of police agencies whereas californios would like less arms, and until we bridge this ideological and methodological gap the divide-and-conquer philosophy of the system wins again, and will carry on winning until God knows when..

God made guns. God made bullets.

God made rapists and killers and murderers and abusers and suffering and pain and horror and fear and loneliness and everything under creation. If she wants to get rid of these things she should do so herself, but she doesn't, because god does not care.

That is the biggest lie told to humanity, not that god exists or created everything, but that god gives a fuck.

What are you rambling about? Tesla and I were talking about completely different things. He was talking about his predictions of an increasing militarization of law enforcement, and I was confirming with Rob that we in LA have essentially ALWAYS thought that North Hollywood Bank robbery was a set-up. Are you done acting like an ass, or is that part of being the human ape too?

My friend decided to invite people for halo LAN. I was ok with it...then I tried to go to bed(because I wake up for work at 1:45a). I houldve said something... but I didn't sleep well and I ended up waking up two hours late for work. And that means I go in late to work...nope. That means I'm forced to take this day off(because if you're more than 15 minutes lates, you will just get sent home). This happene two weeks ago...but it was my fault and I accepted it. This is also my fault but I'm so pissed off and disappointed.
