We need to figure out what to do with our growing collection of dead or abandoned QuikTrips scattered throughout the city, each of which has deed restrictions preventing other fuel sales. The new one at 15th & Lewis will be there only 20 years or so before they decide to abandon it for the southwest corner.

From Tulsa World, May 11, 2014:
They build for expediency, for quick profits, then dump their locations when another corner at the same intersection opens up, complete with deed restrictions and boarded up windows, neighborhood be damned. County property taxes be damned. Competition be damned.

They are not the kindly, thoughtful, generous company they try to make themselves out to be. "Hey, don't think about us bullying your neighborhood and trying to skirt the City's rules on lighting, landscaping, or fencing - we just gave $3 million to a park! We're awesome!"

They exist for one reason: to sell candy, cigarettes, and gasoline; and they don't care what effects they have on anyone else around them.

It's easy to outsell the competition when you own almost every corner in town.

Has anyone tried to map all their abandoned stores?

Apparently people on NextDoor.com are still being told this will not be the mega-QT (Gen. 3) but a new, smaller design.
I would totally love to see that but, as pointed out here, QT is only building their biggest model these days.
...and the plan announced from the beginning was for the big store with a big sign you can see from the expressway.

Ive not heard of any of the neighborhood meetings, have any presentations been made by the corporation?

And you are still basing allegations that have not been proven in court, and there have been no convictions as a result of a court case (other than  Ivanka who later recounted her allegations and that wasn't even a conviction that was a bitter divorce battle that brings out all kinds of BS) from anyone. I don't care which side of the isle you are on, allegations should be investigated and if evidence proves that a crime has been committed, take it to trial and let a jury decide.

Apparently, if there is an allegation, guilt is presumed first. You all would rather accuse, crucify and ruin someone without a trial, but excuse someone like Teddy Kennedy (when he was alive) of an indiscretion. And no this is not a straw man comparison, look at those that have been ruined by false allegations that were tried in the court of the media.

We don't need to drain just the swamp/cesspool, we need to drain the sex pool on both sides, but it needs to be done on actual evidence and payoff's with the slush fund they use.

You probably think that Al Sharpton and Tawana Brawley were right and the court got it wrong.

You know, I would like an investigation into Maxine Waters stated that Reginald Denny got what he deserved and that the riots in LA were justified after the no conviction of the LAPD in the Rodney King beating.

This isn't a court of law, it's about elected public servants and the voters they answer to. Voters certainly can and should use a standard of per preponderance of the evidence when choosing leaders. The standard to be a Senator or President should be very high.

Not all of these actions are even illegal. An adult man hitting on or even sleeping with a 16 year child sadly isn't illegal in many states. But it damn sure should keep him from office. In your work life there are many actions that will get you fired that are not criminal. The same is true of our elected leaders.

How the frack can I be triggered by something I don't watch? You, again, are confused.

As for Joe, I do think he's creepy and I think there is a good chance he will be caught up in the current outings of politicians that are sexual predators. That outing shouldn't be political, it's just about right v wrong. It will hit both parties.  

Biden hasn't been accused of anything yet, it may well happen but to this point it has not. If he is and the accusation is credible he should go down. I will not support him running for president regardless.

Trump has already been outed as a predator, and of females as young as 10 years old. You can defend that all you want, but it means you are fully Team Pedo.

Quote
At the home of defendant Damian Williams, around the corner from Florence and Normandie, police cars cruised by and helicopters buzzed the neighborhood.

But the dozen young men gathered there remained calm as word of the verdicts came down, as did the neighborhood. With bottles of juice, bags of chips and cans of Olde English 800 malt liquor, they exulted over the news, fielding congratulatory calls and welcoming a steady stream of well-wishers, who ranged from a congresswoman to the neighborhood plumber.

"It's a celebration," said Jimmy Williams, 22, a cousin of the defendant. Meanwhile, the defendant's brother, Mark Jackson, promised a massive block party when the last verdict is read.



"We have an opportunity for justice to prevail," said Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Los Angeles), who stopped by to congratulate the group early in the afternoon. Her pleasure at the verdicts was echoed by Gwen Miller, whose son, Antoine Miller, is awaiting trial for his alleged role at Florence and Normandie.

swake,

Since you're so triggered by youtube videos, here's the original source (from nearly 3 years ago!) from the Washington Post  https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/compost/wp/2015/02/18/what-are-we-going-to-do-about-creepy-uncle-joe-biden/?utm_term=.7c5dddc13144

Absolutely.  Every news service is on Youtube.  Or maybe you're getting your news from the same lamestream media that lied us into Iraq, such as NBC "exploding chevy pickups" News or ABC "Food Lion" news.

Lamestream media?  chill out there Hannity.

Sure you didn't. Funny how so many voted for Trump but now don't have the courage of standing behind their choice.

Now he's calling me a liar.   Cool
