  1. The ability to redistrict like that is just utterly broken. It feels like it should be illegal to do that and totally disenfranchise the people who won’t vote for you. After burning the electoral college down, gerrymandering needs to be the next thing to go.
  2. https://www.npr.org/2022/11/17/1137265843/elon-musk-fires-employee-by-tweet "We are looking at one of the worst financial transactions in history, and possibly one of the worst executives in history." The fuller quote: "Musk's new belief that employees should take a "hardcore" approach to work is likely going to make things worse, Zitron said. "There's so much research out there that says if you overwork people, it literally kills them," he said. "And now he's turning to the remaining people, many of whom I'm sure have terrible survivor's guilt, who have to sit there and work these obscene hours to build products that they know will probably not generate the money that Elon Musk needs to keep employing them. We are looking at one of the worst financial transactions in history, and possibly one of the worst executives in history."" Worth a read.
  3. And then there's the 'workers must commit to working long hours at high intensity' email that just went out.... https://www.bbc.com/news/business-63648505 "Elon Musk has told Twitter staff that they must commit to working "long hours at high intensity" or else leave the company, according to reports." and " "This will mean working long hours at high intensity. Only exceptional performance will constitute a passing grade," he said. Workers were told that they needed to click on a link by 17:00 EST on Thursday, if they want to be "part of the new Twitter"." I used to work for a guy like this - an absolute workaholic. He thought because he had no life and was working 16 hour days then it was normal for everyone else to as well, and would get pissed if I wasn't answering phone calls at 4am. Musk is going to have people leaving Twitter in droves.
  4. Buying a company, firing half the staff then hiring a bunch of those staff back doesn’t look like a plan. And yes, Twitter might survive, but I think it’ll be because Musk gets lucky in one of his impromptu ideas working, not because he’s a particular genius. Infinite monkeys, and all that.
  5. The democrats need to find who’s running for them, fast. Biden is a certain loss, I think. I’m furious they haven’t been developing a candidate over the last 2 years and have been resting on their laurels. Harris has been a complete non-entity and unless they find someone who can compete with DeSantis and Trump in terms of personality and charisma they’re going to lose badly in 2024.
  6. Don’t forget her stated plan to take a flamethrower to all those pesky EU human rights laws that came from our time with Europe. ‘You know what will help the poor? 20 hour working days!!! And no unions!!’
  7. It's the 'confront absolutely everyone about their beliefs' or 'ignore absolutely everyone' absolutism that's weird to me. You can and should treat different groups differently. I honestly think Winsor doesn't understand the concept of equality as it's discussed pertaining to social rights. If I know someone is cheating a bit on their taxes that makes them a criminal, but I'd still probably talk to them at a social event if they were there. If someone rocked up in a full KKK outfit to a PTA meeting I'd treat them differently.
  8. When encountering someone with a rainbow tattoo I ignore it completely and behave as I would with any other person. When I encounter someone with a swastika tattoo I don’t talk to them and leave BECAUSE THEY’RE A BLOODY NAZI and proud of it. The two aren’t even remotely equivalent. Your perception that they are is warped.
  9. Hey. Sanity check time. This is where we are. This is a tweet from a professional politician advocating murder of federal agents. FBI, IRS, ATF, whatever. If you can read this tweet and not go ‘however we got here, it’s fucked up and it needs to stop’ then you’re part of the problem.
  10. The document revealed that papers uncovered there were marked top secret, and some were so sensitive that they are only meant to be viewed in protected government facilities And I bet you STILL nothing happens.
  11. I really need to transition into gun manufacturing and design. The money in it is insane.
  12. GOOD! 5% is better than 0%! Thats 22,000 people that would have lived last year. Lets start with something and improve, eh?
  13. You’d kinda hope that inciting an insurrection and attempting to overthrow democracy would have been that point, but you know,… ‘MURICA.
  14. Holy shit. Right now in biotech in San Diego the STARTING salary for just about the most junior scientist position (RA) is $50-$60k. And that’s with a single undergraduate degree.
  15. I'm baffled and disgusted that you can somehow reason your way to this sentence. You could have the worst parents in the world - Ones teaching their kids to go out and fuck anything moving as soon as possible and you know who bears the responsibility if that happens? THE FUCKING RAPIST. The person sick enough to perform a criminal act on a child. It's not something you can pass off by saying 'oh, I didn't know it was wrong!' or 'but she wanted it!' Jesus fucking Christ.
