    "They're not really Republicans, they're RINOs because of [cherry-picked policy disagreement]"

     

    That's pretty NTS.

    California once had state mental institutions, until noted liberal governor Ronald Reagan closed them down because of the amount of taxes required to maintain them.

    I'm not sure what your point is. I know it's popular to use Regan as some sort of boogeyman, but democrats were equally complicit in supporting the shutdown as they felt (falsely) that the mentally ill were better off with "liberty" than proper care. That's the problem with idealism, it gets in the way of reality.

    Union square already has parking lot.

    I don’t see how explicitly not behaving how a party behaves is a cherry-picked argument in the slightest.

     

    “I’m pro-life, for diminished gun control, and for deportation of all persons in this country illegally, but I am a Democrat.” 



    Do you somehow think that flies?

    Now I'm confused.  Are you saying that Reagan would or would not have shopped at this store?

    Yes, because that's three policies out of many. The idea that Democrat and Republican is a binary equation is a false one, everyone exists on a spectrum, and both R and D occupy a wide chunk of that spectrum. Having these accusations of RINO and DINO against those who have different views on a handful of policies is just levying a NTS argument against Republicans and Democrats who don't agree with you on absolutely everything.

    That fact that the Republican party is so split right now, and the Democrat party has had huge amounts of infighting over the last few decades is symptomatic of this. Both parties occupy a wide political range.

    No, let’s agree you don’t comprehend what a representative cross-section is.

    If you're going to start doing that thing you do where you tell me what I do and don't understand with zero provocation or evidence then we're not going to agree on anything.  

     

    Quit it; you were being mostly agreeable up until that.

    Okay, regarding the doors... what if they have a very particular purpose, being to grant very large exhibits access to the display floor, motor vehicles for example. Not vehicles manufactured by Apple but by a close partner and which feature CarPlay (and perhaps other iOS features)? Suppose in some states Apple took up a vehicle dealer's license, the stores would make quite interesting showcases.

    I'm thinking more that the doors have a purpose in keeping the store comfortable. When it's a sunny day in SF, that store will get very hot. Opening the doors would be a good way to keep it bearable without depending on air conditioning. Of course open doors require added security . . .
