Whenever discussions come around about 4 day work weeks, or 30 hour work weeks or whatever, nobody ever stops to frame what the f*** ‘work’ even means anymore. Nobody wants to take a long, hard look at what that construct has become. Because the honest truth about the modern world is that most work is effectively Read more

I’m sure many black men would have said, “I feared for my life,” had they ever been given a chance. But since they died, nobody was punished because the white murderer said, “I feared for my life,” which is the expectation and acceptable in Totally-Not-Racist America.

Republican politicians, pandering to their wealthy-republican-patron agendas?

Exactly! He was a black man, carrying things that black people obviously have to steal to possess. This officer was clearly executing his job to fullest and best extent of the law. [/sarcasm] Read more

Trump wants America to reopen because he’s more concerned about the economy’s lifeline than he is about the people he governs. That’s a fact. Read more

Five or so weeks huh? So, five or so weeks from the end of January puts the end of this whole epidemic thing at roughly the middle of March. Good to know this whole thing is already over, right? I mean, we’re already half-way to June, so SURELY it has to be over? This ‘specialist’ couldn’t possibly be talking out of Read more

They didn’t make anything *happen*. They just got OUT OF THE WAY. They don’t enable anything. They impede. They are the OBSTACLE, not the goal or the means. Read more

It’s not about the individual or the collective. It’s about the behavior — taking credit and rewards not duly earned by your/their own labor, at the expense of those whose labor MADE ANY OF IT POSSIBLE. Read more

Speak for yourself. I beat it. Multiple times. In the span of about an hour. I know this, because I didn’t play it listening to the game music, but the official soundtrack — and it all sync’d up perfectly. Read more

Was waiting to see how long it would take before the great white mob descended on the dead to smear and discredit. And I’m sure it’ll continue into the courtroom. “He might have had a gun! We couldn’t know! We were afraid for our lives!” ...and the all- or mostly-white jury will have heard all they needed to hear.

I can not honestly claim to know if this is true or simply apocryphal. But I wouldn’t put it past the man.

According to Edison, sure. Edison thought very highly of *himself*. But few others who actually knew him did. He was an arrogant, self-righteous, vindictive, petty, and spiteful man. His ‘greatest’ invention is what has become corporate brain factories — looking for and hiring smart people and putting them to work crea Read more

Who said anything about a messiah? Tesla was legitimately brilliant, but quirky and socially inept. Edison was just an unscrupulous asshole who knew how to manipulate people and public opinion.

You clearly only know the sanitized “self-designed” biography of Edison and not the full, REAL history of the man. The sum total of his ‘contributions’ to humanity can be listed thusly: intellectual-labor camps, patent trolling, and subverting better technologies for personal gain. Edison invented nothing. He paid Read more

In Donald Trump’s little mind, Donald Trump is the single greatest accomplishment of humanity, past, present, and future. In reality, he’s just another piece of shit with a fragile, hyper-inflated ego befitting of nothing but pity and mockery. Like so many ‘inheritance wealthy’ were it not from the crimes of his Read more
