The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

To Thank a Vet

For John, BLUFSigns can be a problem, if someone objects.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

There are an unbelievable number of presences on the world wide web. One post I came across recently is about a web site founded by two military veterans at Harvard Business School, Rally Point.  The specific post is about a bar in Huntington Beach, California, a City where I voted for several decades.  The title is "Outrage as Pub Forced to take down 'Thank a Veteran For Your Freedom' Display".
A bar in Huntington Beach, CA is being threatened with a ~$1,000 fine if the owners do not take down a sign that pays respect to veterans by reading, "Thank a veteran for your freedom."

The bar owner is fighting the decision, and has said that if he is indeed forced to remove the sign, he will invite local vets to pay final respects.

Cities can be picky about signage.  Remember all the trouble we had about that sign for Cobblestones?

  From their web site:  RallyPoint was founded in 2012 by two military veterans at Harvard Business School to help make military life better.  Backed by two of the US military's recent Joint Chiefs of Staff, RallyPoint connects its members and gives them the best tools possible to succeed both while in the military, and beyond.  With RallyPoint, you can build out your professional network, connect with other members of the military in a safe environment, and explore career opportunities both within the military (PCS opportunities) as well as in the private sector.  In 2012, RallyPoint won the world's largest startup competition (MassChallenge), and placed 2nd in the Harvard Business School Business Plan Competition.  RallyPoint is based out of the Harvard University Innovation Lab in Boston.

The spin on this one is over the top. The sign needs permits, like any other sign requires. All the bar owner needs to do is get one. The "forced to take it down" nonsense is offensive. If the sign does come down, it'll be because the bar owner is an asshole who thinks the rules shouldn't apply to him. It has nothing to do with vets.
