:) Now we're stereotyping mechanics? For shame.

I had two uncles, both were obsessive mechanics; one looked like your stereotype, the other looked like an office worker.

The one who looked like a mechanic (by your description) always had grease on his pants, and stuff lying all over

The other uncle always looked neat and fresh, and his tools were always in their proper place when not being used. He used to say about his brother that he should wipe his hands with a rag instead of his pants.

The neat uncle was by far the best of the two at fixing about anything.

Neither of them had markings on their face; not sure what kind of markings a mechanic should have on their faces--unless they use their teeth to turn bolts.


I'm a refrigeration, boiler, hydraulic, and diesel mechanic Roy. Field work, most of it being done on the tailgate of my truck. Not a lot of space there to leave things laying around or to be messy. Made my living doing it. Was good at it. My pants get pretty greasy.

The marks of being a mechanic leaves are little nicks and scars, and the physical build. The guy looked like an office butter ball to me.

I believe you, but it's anecdotal. I've known lots of mechanics--and machinists, that when they weren't working their trade, could have been tagged at being pencil pushers. I've also known office workers who looked like they were shoved through a giant pencil sharpener.

Companies face many dark perils when it comes to political money

As corporate titans AT&T and Novartis continue to stumble in explaining their respective $600,000 and $1.2 million payments to President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, no explanation has been offered why these payments were structured to avoid public disclosure. The fact that these payments were intentionally shrouded in darkness means that they will remain a stain on the reputations of these companies.

California Shines a Light on Dark Money

This November, Californians will vote for 80 State Assembly members, 20 state senators, and a new governor, as well as face choices over a number of citizen-initiated ballot measures. With so much at stake, over 19 million voters can expect moneyed interests to try and influence the vote through blanketing the state with a flurry of advertisements. Yet in this upcoming election—for the first time—voters will have the opportunity to learn more about the organizations funding those ads.

A recently passed law known as the California Disclose Act requires greater transparency in political advertising and funding to help voters make informed decisions. The Disclose Act makes numerous amendments to the state’s flagship law that regulates campaign finance and electoral activity.

California Bows to Payday Lenders on Interest Rate Caps

SACRAMENTO (CN) — Targeting minorities and veterans lacking access to fair credit, lenders pushing small loans with interest rates above 100 percent are flourishing in California.

With no law limiting or discouraging triple-digit annual percentage rate lending, the personal loan market has exploded since the Great Recession. Lenders dished out over 300,000 loans to Californians with interest rates above 100 percent in 2016, a stunning jump from just 57 in 2006.

Slamming the door shut to foreign meddling in America

Last month, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee released a batch of some 3,500 Facebook Kremlin-backed Facebook ads. They yielded further evidence of Russia’s campaign to sow national discord before (and after) the 2016 elections by exploiting weaknesses in the rules that regulate online political advertising.

As California Congressman and House Intelligence Ranking Member Adam Schiff said recently: “There’s no question that Russia sought to weaponize social media platforms to drive a wedge between Americans, and in an attempt to sway the 2016 election.”

Corporate speech impedes city’s right to create municipal utility

Earlier this month, the citizens of Decorah, Iowa, voted against establishing a municipal electric utility— by three votes. The “no” campaign, financed exclusively by Alliant Energy, outspent the grassroots “yes” campaign 5-to-1, according to state campaign disclosure reports.

Iowa has experienced a “municipal electric utility drought” since 1974. This is in part due to the expensive and involved process to present a municipalization case to the Iowa Utilities Board. In Decorah, however, the impediment to our city’s right to municipalization was Alliant Energy’s meddling in our local democratic process. Alliant’s involvement started last year, when a local grassroots organization, Decorah Power, declared its intentions to explore municipalization.

A federal judge just knocked down major parts of Colorado’s privatized system of enforcing money-in-politics laws

The centerpiece of Colorado’s unique method of outsourcing enforcement of campaign finance laws to private citizens is unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled on Tuesday in a scathing court decision that could drastically change the way the state regulates money in politics.

U.S. District Judge Raymond Moore said a constitutional provision and supporting laws that require individuals to submit and prosecute complaints against politicians and groups they believe have broken campaign finance laws, violates federal Constitutional provisions.

After Nevada GOP push, Treasury quietly changed lucrative policy benefiting one county

The Treasury Department last week quietly reversed itself after lobbying by Nevada Republicans and agreed to let a previously ineligible county reap huge benefits from the new tax law.

The effort was led by Nevada’s governor, Brian Sandoval (R), and Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.), who separately spoke with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and pushed for Storey County to win designation as an “Opportunity Zone,” which was established in the law to help distressed areas attract money.
