one of the first things the trump administration did when taking office was to reject and suppress a Department of Health and Human Services report that “found that refugees ‘contributed an estimated $269.1 billion in revenues to all levels of government’ between 2005 and 2014 through the payment of federal, state and

It’s true to those who experienced pain there and didn’t like it. It’s not true to those who love it. (I’m the former.)

so you “knew someone” who never badmouthed the company after their time there and you’re going to use that as your reason to dismiss a reputable publication (the WSJ) who interviewed 70 former employees, ran the story through their legal department, fact-checkers and editors? And *that’s* why you think we’re in the “ag

not all of us. i worked there and quit. it wouldn’t be so dehumanizing if everyone who offered up criticism was actually an on the level human being. they say that they don’t tolerate “talented jerks” there (i.e., people who get passes for being assholes to co-workers because of their productivity), but they do. and

...it’s worse than Lord of the Flies. It’s Lord of the Flies with pretentious, inexperienced type-A’s who think they’re cool and chill, and who also think they are way better than you. Yes, most of you even though they really haven’t met that many people being so young and inexperienced in life and all.

I worked there. They throw money and high-quality everything at you. Kombucha and cold brew on tap! Snacks and meals all throughout the day. I loved it so much, or rather wanted to love it so much, but imagine people in their 20's feeling themselves so hard because they work at netflix and think they are the creamiest

Thanks for recapping the series! But, man, a ‘D+” is pretty brutal. We definitely watched different shows. I thought this Season 3 was pretty tremendous overall. There were more moments in this season that landed with some pretty hefty emotional weight, something that had been missing for me from the previous 2

I love that actress (who plays Karen) but yeah, you nailed the lack of much being given to her to do. The reason I know she could handle more as an actor is that she nails those two emotions - worried about or angry with Matt! However, we see in the beginning of the Season that she continues to pay his rent and comes

in the face of the 0.1% stealing ALL the money and taking away every damn thing from everyone, these particularly incurious white folk are happy to exercise their petty power over whomever they think they can get over on. and then time and time again, reality sets in and they are rightfully fired from their jobs. and

I totally agree with being firm and righteous in the face of this disgusting GOP crap whereby all of a sudden (seemingly) the worst of them now think they’re the cream of the crop and pull shit like this. However, I also really like how the @thatsmymom guy turned his (no-doubt) Trump-loving, lost-her-mind mother’s

Yep. They want to get to be “stupid kids” until they’re in their 40's and then when they’re 70 years old, they’ll look back and say, “I could have been kinder and listened more, but I didn’t know any better.” Gross.

The sickness of the current iteration of the GOP (which can only get worse, I know), is that *this* is the hallowed glorious past that they wish to return to. These periods in the US where 40-yr old directors could drug and sodomize 13-year-olds, bring their pre-teen daughters to parties with rampant drug-use and sex

“Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.” -the so-called Leftist’s lament. This is how we eat our own, continuously. It’s exhausting. Focus, people. Focus on what matters!

sorry for butting in, but please. let us have our anger at least. how many of us can take any more of this? it’s only been ONE YEAR AND TEN MONTHS. I feel so radicalized these days and I’m a peace-lover ffs

I’ve been afraid from the very beginning that the #metoo movement was really only transforming the “Democrat” side of the currently seemingly polarized populace—and even that wasn’t quite enough, but there was the promise that men and women were talking and facing up to some scary things that needed to change. This

I think you’re on to something up there when you ask for conspiracy theories. I just listened to The Good Place podcast with Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Simone), and Dan Schofield (show writer) was asked about Simone’s name. Granted I’m doing two other things while listening to the podcast and am too lazy to go back and

Jesus! Do we just straight up call it American apartheid by now? This entire USSC shitshow debacle is one more gigantic display evidencing that these fuckers do not think of this as a democracy-for the people, by the people. They’re not even pretending anymore. Each spectacle will only get worse unless the people in
