Lives in USA are worth less than gun laws

So there's another shooting in USA, in an Orlando nightclub. People are angry, people are sad. However, Orlando is just one of the many shootings that day, it's just that more people died which is why it's on the news.

Whenever there's such shootings, you'll see forums and comments of people who support the right to own guns.

The thing is, people believe what they want to believe. Whatever anti-gun argument you use, I'm pretty sure they have a comeback, and it may be a reasonable comeback, one that's totally substantiated by facts, statistics.

Those people who are arguing for the right to own guns don't really care about other people who are getting shot. They may be sad about the Orlando shooting, but that's not going to change their behavior and attitude of owning guns themselves.

Let me put it this way: lives of people in USA are worth less than the gun laws. If lives are actually precious, they would have done something to stop innocent people from getting killed. And it's such a shame that no one in the government has the guts to do what's right. They just accept life as it is today. If people can own guns so easily, statistically, there are going to be shootings. It's just another shooting that won't change anything.

If the lives of those people are important, the US government would have done something by now. Columbine shooting was in 1999.

Food rage lady should have been dragged out of the mall

Source: Food rage lady gives her side of the story, says she had a cold that day

When talk and reason fail, perhaps it's time to call the security to drag her out of the mall. This is to maintain the harmony and peace of other customers who are eating. It's a private property after all.

NTUC FairPrice and the rats at Kang Kar Mall

NTUC's initial response on taking legal action
NTUC FairPrice, FB user trade words over rats at Kang Kar Mall

It is unfortunate when entities abuse their position to bully the weak. That looks like the case to me when Sun Yu Ming posted photos of bread that had wrappings chewed through by rats, and NTUC FairPrice retaliated on their Facebook page.

It's also unfortunate that some people really can't think well even if they are in management. I'm referring to the person who wrote the post on NTUC FairPrice's FB page and the person who approved it. Can you not think properly?

People on the Yahoo page linked above have properly called out that the rats and the shortchanging are two different issues.

Here's some advice, for NTUC FairPrice and also other commercial entities.

When people make a complaint against your company, thank them for their time to provide feedback. They obviously care enough to actually give you some feedback. There are companies out there that are paying people to provide feedback. And you're getting this feedback from Mr Sun for free!

Next, find out what happen and use that feedback to improve your company.

Don't be afraid of bad news. Every problem is an opportunity.

What and how you do in a situation like this reflects who you are. Do you want to be a moron or a responsible person in the mind of the public?
