Well, there will be no further tests for Grab A Gun, it seems;

informed them I'd need some more funds for the next rental and ammo, and no response.  At all.  Which is rude, especially since a simple "We've decided not to continue" would have done it.

In other news, this really should involve subpoenas.  And people going to jail for either not responding or lying.
According to new congressional bombshell testimony today, the IRS set up a previously unknown “special project team” comprised of “hundreds of attorneys,” including the IRS Chief Counsel (one of only two politically appointed positions at the IRS). 

The “special project” this team was given? Concealing information from Congress. 

The IRS’s director of privacy, governmental liaison, and disclosure division, Mary Howard, testified that soon after the IRS targeting scandal was revealed, the IRS “amassed hundreds of attorneys to go through the documents [requested by Congress] and redact them.” 

Members of Congress have long complained that many of the documents produced by the IRS have been “redacted to the point of absurdity.” 

Now we know why.
No wonder they didn't have people to answer the phones, they were spending all the funds on lawyers.

And who didn't see this coming(I know you people did, put your hands down)?
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D.) promised minimum wage hikes for fast food restaurants could shut down one out of every five chain restaurants in the state, according to a new survey. 

The Employment Policies Institute, a free market think tank and critic of minimum wage hikes, surveyed nearly 1,000 self-described fast food entrepreneurs about how they would respond to statewide, industry-specific wage hikes. More than 20 percent of respondents said they were “very likely” to go out of business if the state raises the minimum wage for fast food joints to $15, a 70 percent increase from the current $8.75 statewide minimum wage.

Crap, even the firefighters in DC are assholes.
Mills, 77, had been a city government employee before the January 2014 incident, when he collapsed in front a fire station in Northeast D.C. Family members and bystanders ran to the nearby fire station, but instead of helping, the firefighters inside turned them away.

They were told that the firefighters could not respond to the emergency until someone called 911 to file a report. A passing ambulance eventually stopped to help Mills, but he later died.

According to The Washington Post, an internal investigation found massive negligence at the fire station and said that one firefighter decided to read a book in his bed instead of going to help Mills.
