The problem is that in a supposedly wealthy nation most people are one hardship away from hunger and homelessness. The job is a red herring.

Agreed that it would be super if we come out of this by taking away TSA. I just got my TSA precheck number, so maybe it'll work like how when you bring an umbrella it doesn't rain.


Yeah, that's a subject I've got rather a lot to say about: about the need for universal basic income; about the need to shift the Overton window so that we stop evaluating people's worth (both ourselves' and others') based on job status; about how the politics of the latest season of Doctor Who were mostly great but that Amazon warehouse one was fucking bullshit...that kind of thing.

My point was, more or less, that regardless of my opinions of the TSA (and they are not positive), Trump is, once again, hurting people because he is having a racist temper tantrum, and that's fucked up even if it's the TSA.

(ICE, on the other hand? You won't find me expressing any sympathy for those guys. Unless "Welp, I hope you appreciate the irony and reevaluate your life choices" counts as sympathy.)

Whenever I see one of those posts I think they mean John de Lancie and believe TNG to be actual documented future history. Theorising about Q's use of time travel isn't helping.

Yeah that was a kind of weird story. Apparently in private homes you're not required to have the emergency call button go to an outside location, but there might be some kind of regulation for private buildings with no doorman or something? Anyway the owner is refusing to let anyone look at the elevator to see what happened and even the 911 response was pissy.

Responder: "Three DAYS?"
Dispatcher: "That's what SHE said."

He is a dongoloid and should be ashamed of his penis size. Lucky for him there are two options available. He can get penis reduction surgery or gender reassignment surgery. If he goes down one of these routes I wish him all the best. Please don't believe the lies that are present on the internet regarding the average penis size being over 5 inches, these are lies constructed by dongoloids so that they can feel normal. 4 inches is and always will be average.

A take so hot it's contributing to global warming.

The demonization of carbon dioxide is just like the demonization of the poor Jews under Hitler.


This is a troll job, right? I mean, its gotta be.

It's just gotta.

Oh dear lord.

Just because the person saying it doesn't believe it doesn't mean they don't expect somebody else to believe it.

Oh dear god, not only is he serious... he's up for an appointment to lead the White House climate panel

Because... OF COURSE HE IS.

Oh and note the tense:
"Carbon dioxide is actually a benefit to the world, and so were the Jews."

Anyone that "loves dogs" deserves fleas, the shit eating diseases and the lives stolen from them. Loving an animal that is so vile and even "well trained" a threat deserves the consequences of their own stupidity. They don't deserved children or any other loved one. They intentionally set their family up to be mauled and killed by a pack animal that only values food.


I mean, some people don't like dogs - or any sort of housepets - okay sure.

But uh, this is probably someone who ought to be old yeller'd.

This is perhaps a little old to be a strictly hot take, but the extended conversation is gold dust.

Especially this

An old image but damn, I never realized that back then black people had so many options! They could be:

Baseball Players

Lounge Singers

...held by a white guy on safari?

The "white guy on safari" is probably Albert Schweitzer, a humanitarian and anti-colonialist who founded a major hospital in Africa. He's dressed like he's on safari and holding a black baby, because ... ?????

This book came out before the election.

There's another great page where she's basically depicted as Jesus to a bunch of squabbling academics.
