banning gas will drastically hurt lower income families as gas is typically way cheaper for heating.
Just about every American institution or custom has, at some point or another, had some kind of racist element encoded into its DNA. That’s the real story here. Not that some 19 year old competed in a dumb pageant.
It’s an interesting thing that’s happened over the last 30-40-50 years maybe. pendulum has certainly moved from workers’ rights/working condition to heavy support for the c-suite (not even counting the “rockstar” CEOs).
We’ve really vilified the poor. You’re poor because you’re dumb or don’t work hard. And speaking up… Read more
It’s also not a new story. I read an article on this (I want to say last year?) and she talked about how she came from a super privileged, wealthy background and her embarrassment over her participation in this ball. I’m trying to find it now but every page of google is dominated by this latest news. Read more
It’s not *quite* accusing someone of Nazi sympathies because they once owned a VW Beetle made in the ‘70s, but it’s only a step or two removed from it.
Hol up, you’re telling me that St. Louis did something Klan related? THE St. Louis? The one in Missouri? Oh wow, who could have ever imagined that aside from literally every person on the planet or at least these United States? I had to look up who she was (I’ve tried with the Office but it’s just not funny; never… Read more
There’s really not much of anything here. The headline and the beginning of the story made it sound like Erin from The Office was burning crosses and shit. Nope, she attended some corny debutante ball thing that has a racist past. Most of the US has a racist past. Read more
Am I missing something? I see no connection other than the origins of the festival or party or whatever that would tie her to KKK leanings. If dumbass Black people wanted to join that bullshit, that’s of course their choice but I don’t see where she was personally connected to the KKK or even racism. I also think it’s… Read more
I agree a lot of these “entry-level” jobs that require experience are just a way to low-ball salary. However, some fields operate where most graduates are expected to have done an internship prior to graduation. These internships are mostly paid (or if unpaid, they’re relatively few hours per week and usually done… Read more
It is manual, the kind you just pull it through.
If your knives aren’t particularly expensive I’d recommend buying a knife sharpener on Amazon. I have one that I run my chef’s knife through every few weeks. It always comes away very sharp, and it works well. I would not do this if I had expensive knives. So far it has not ruined our modestly priced knives, and I… Read more
I know very little about PR, but that is certainly not the optics you want to go for.
Imagine firing someone for supporting Palestine in the past mere days after your local office in Gaza was bombed in to the ground. Sheesh.
People can walk and chew gum at the same time.
I hope Daisy lives a good long time.
