It really bothers me that there are so many air bubbles in that stupid floor sticker.
Both the left and the right are remarkable in how weak their convictions seem to be. Let’s take the left, because it’s just so easy. The MeToo movement. Criminal justice reform. Immigration reform. Police reform. Blah blah blah. But when you get handed candidates who are guilty, or have at least been credibly accused of, sexual assault, for instance, you grimace and say “oh well. He’s not perfect, but he’s still good on X and Y. We can overlook the ‘small’ things if it moves us closer to our goal.” Or a woman who has demonstrably and provably blocked exculpatory evidence in a wrongful conviction, put hundreds of people behind bars for non-violent offences, and so much else, you grimace and say ” Oh well. Not thrilled, but still. We can overlook the ‘small’ things if it moves us closer to our goal.” The right is no better. What happened to RESIST! What happened to REVOLUTION?? What happened to your convictions? Why is it so easy for you to lay your beliefs aside and fool yourselves into thinking that this time is any different than any other time? Where is your spine? You do this to yourselves. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. You could so easily stop this madness, break the two party system but you don’t. I wonder why that is.
Now on to more frivolous ramblings.
The general teams channel for the office is just a long series of me saying Good morning! in different languages and the same two of my colleagues “liking” it.
What’s with the Farrah hair period? So weird. It’s like 2003.
On the one hand, it seems like no one understands or even knows our history any more. On the other, it seems we’re too bogged down in it – bogged down without that understanding.
“It’s the Pax, the G-32 Paxilon Hydroclorate that we added to the air processors. It’s… well it works… it was supposed to calm the population, weed out aggression. Make a peaceful… it worked. The people here stopped fighting. And then they stopped everything else. They stopped going to work, stopped breeding… talking… eating… There’s thirty million people here and they all just let themselves die.”
I’ve never met that guy. He’s an adjunct at my university. It’s good to know whom to avoid.
People won’t cooperate! OK, let’s force them against their will by removing all of their basic human rights and dosing them with substances that may or may not have devastating lasting consequences just so we can smugly claim we saved the world!
There is no universal morality. I’ve said this over and over. So you would be enforcing your own morality on others. What’s moral about that? What’s ethical about that? You decide that your morality is the correct morality, therefore, it’s totally OK to drug people into acquiescence without their knowledge or consent? How do you not see that that is, in fact, morally reprehensible?
And also that is why you should never trust the government.
Still not interested in a vaccine.
So all of a sudden Susan B. Anthony is a big fat racist. OK. Sure. Whatever. You know what? You all suck.
I was going to post this on the Wednesday and had to rush off to Portage, but now I realize it’s actually super short so I guess we’ll wait another week.
I’m running out of energy. Wait. I’m out of energy. For any of this. This is the most I’ve ever wanted to quit the internet in my life.
No, really. Why does anyone still live in California?
Aw man. I got quoted on a flier. Cool.
This is all I’m ever going to be.
“Joe Biden’s life is replete with mistakes and regrets. And, if he comes to the Presidency, he is unlikely to supply much of the exalted rhetoric that reaches into a nation’s soul. But, for a people in mourning, he might offer something like solace, a language of healing.” I’m sorry, I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.
I’d be willing to lay odds that never happened.
I find the presence of the lady with the British accent as a member of the DAR incongruous and slightly jarring.
Well, that’s completely ruined my day. Awesome.
I suppose I’ll post this today. Probably. Next week is the first day of classes. I’ll probably be busy.
Well, I was going to post today, but today was crazy busy.
Every day I skim that NYT morning briefing and am freshly astounded at the blatant bias. What a pile of trash.
Is there anything Whitmer touches that doesn’t automatically turn to shit? Anything?
Jesus. When was the last time I shaved my legs?
“To borrow a favorite phrase of the woke activist crowd: Educate yourself, street protesters.”
This is much better news.
“Put your kids on a ’news diet’ and other tips to coping with anxiety during a pandemic.” Why are you letting your kids watch the news in the first place?
Look. I can do just about anything, as long as it’s explained to me. But don’t fucking make me guess.
Honestly. Executive Assistant is a perfectly respectable job. I could probably make peace with doing this for the rest of my life. Somehow.
All of a sudden I can’t stand Luke’s daughter.
Thanks for permanently ruining the previously utterly innocuous “folks,” progs. Is there anything you can’t destroy?
Holy shit. Today has been non-stop crazy.
