Work conflict

JMO, I think this could be a person where "managing up" could be useful, because they actually don't understand. It flips the script a bit and sets you up as the expert explaining to person with authority but not expertise how things work. It helps them, puts you on surer footing. and can ...

Roe v Wade over turned

Spent years trying to figure out a Biblical basis for a ban on abortion. The Catholic Church went back and forth on this for centuries, permitting it before movement could be felt, or not, until one of the Pope Innocents put a stop to it. There's no clear biblical info on this apart from how. In th...

Mass Shootings in America

I've shared this here before, but when I was trying to get my suburban PD to arrest someone, I had to eventually get a Chicago cop to handle it, who did so within about 2 hours of my asking. I asked him why my local PD wouldn't do it, and he said, "Guys don't become cops in that town if they w...

Mass Shootings in America

He was a law abiding citizen, waiting until he was 18 to legally buy his AR-15 and boxes of ammo. All on the up and up until he shot grandma in the face. How about that Uvalde SWAT team?

MTG is just an indication of which Congressional district you never want to live in. That shit is bananas. With gerrymandering, there is no downward pressure on the fringe stupidity.

It sounds like Heard has Borderline Personality Disorder, which is no fucking joke. I'd be hard-pressed to feel bad for Johnny Depp, but his living with her would do it.

No fuckin' thank you to sending US troops to Ukraine

It seems like every week another Ukraine invading Russian general is killed. Zero reports on dead Ukrainian generals. WTF?? Makes me wonder if Vlad is trimming the trees. It seems like all the Western military analysis of the Russian military is they are terrible. 20 years of being politically reli...

The Batman

I dozed off in the middle. Patterson was good I thought the chase scene where you can tell, "this dude is a little nuts and really into chasing bad guys" was well done.

Weird combo of good movie and I won't watch it again.

No fuckin' thank you to sending US troops to Ukraine

I think the distinction here is recommending pressure in response to an invasion vs. pressure in response to an entire system of government. So it's like the UN boycott of Saddam Hussein in 1990? A response to his invasion of Kuwait? They lasted until the US invaded Iraq in 2003. Thirteen years or ...

Guinness 0.0

Not a big non-alcoholic beer drinker as most of it is not good, and the good ones aren't good enough to have more than once in a long while. Guinness was weirdly behind in putting out an n/a product supposedly because they were working on getting the taste right. I tried the new canned Guinness 0.0 ...

No fuckin' thank you to sending US troops to Ukraine

That's where I think starting to kick Russian citizens out of universities and so on makes sense. It's easy to treat this as a game of "who really knows what's going on." Important to make it clear this isn't a game. Things could get extremely out of hand.

Whole lot of executed civilians. Some of the shot down aircraft appears to have been propaganda, but there are foreign sources on what's going on in some of these liberated areas. It worked for them in Chechnya and Georgia, and in Syria. Why change their game plan? Putin is counting on the civilize...

Rock v. Smith

One of the weird things to me about it was the sort of liberal racism involved. It's very, very hard to imagine Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt smacking a presenter and then being allowed to accept an award. You almost have to assume, "Yeah, sometimes black actors are going to thug out so we will prete...

Dave Chappelle should do 20 minutes on the Smiths for his next Netflix special. He murdered Jussie Smollett. Comics having to worry about somebody coming up on stage sucks.

I don't understand your logic. "Denazification and a Jewish President"." I don't understand your logic. Do you think a Jew can't be a Nazi? Or do you think if Nazism is directed not against Jews, but against Russians, then this is not Nazism? There may be a translation issue here, bu...
