Mormon here and the “Mormon royalty” claims are really funny. If there is Mormon royalty, it is not these women. It’d be people like Donny Osmond or Mitt Romney or a famous athlete who everyone knows. The episode covered how the women are “royalty” and it was SO FUNNY (but only to Mormons...). First, the claim that Read more

I have the same work lunch every day (or did, back when I worked away from home...) because I can’t be arsed to change it up. I just want to automate work lunches so I can care about the chore of making them as little as possible. Read more

I mostly find it fascinating how different various people’s “problematic” lists are. I don’t do the little house on the prairie books with my kids for reasons I thought were obvious but several of my mom friends think I’m crazy because they have a deep personal affection for those books and are super excited about Read more

If he were trying to apply for any type of position that required a security clearance, he’d never get it. That much debt is a HUGE red-flag no-no for security auditors. It’s far too easy to leverage that against people to manipulate or coerce them into acting against their will. Read more

This is why I subscribe and donate to Bitch. They pay their staff a living wage, pointing out that shitty pay in the not-for-profit and publishing sectors is a huge part of what keeps those sectors so white and upper class. Don’t know if they have a union or not (I know, I probably should), but I don’t think they’d Read more

Bloombergs candidacy attempt feels as far in the distance as 2016.  My god, 2020 will never end.

In fairness, Bloomberg’s a shitty boss, but seems to have made his money within the bounds of the law by building a media/information company that generates a lot of information that people, mostly financial institutions and businesses that interact with financial markets, actually need to keep money flowing through Read more

Isn’t this the same “education” filled with anachronisms, cliches, and propaganda, we have all been subjected to for over 250 years?

Fuck Washington and his cherry tree. Toothless slaver...
