Re: Inequality

Kinda of ironic (in the non-ironic Alanis Morrissette sense of the word) that I should see the "job guarantee" the same day I read a report that almost 1 out of 4 jobs don't pay enough to get the jobholder out of poverty.

I’d not heard new calls for job guarantee. It’s a thing stupid people bring up every 15 years or so though.
Yep it’s getting some traction. Corey Booker has a bill. I would link you to some takes but I’m at the vet’s office.

The 5thC guys indicated the whole stinking thing was only info from public profiles. If that’s true this is truly the dumbest scandal of our lives.
Which “whole thing”? Because it’s not like they’re under fire for only the Cambridge Analytica stuff at this point.

Elastica only had one guy, the drummer, and everyone played instruments. But they kind of fell off the world and later dissolved.

I finally looked it up, and "Ray Donovan" is...the name of a TV show? Not what I expected.
Never heard of it, but apparently it's been around for five seasons. Why were you looking it up?
There's a whole thing about how Michael Cohen "is" Ray Donovan or something.

I blame online dating or something. They seem to have a lot of complaints about women’s profiles having height requirements b...

Reading that story earlier was the first time I ever wanted to work on Capitol Hill. But of course now it won't be like that anymore.

I find wider sidewalks make it worse because they're what make people think they can ride a bike on the sidewalk at all.

Re: The Abortion Thread

It's idiotic for anything sooner than the day Obama was elected to be covered in AP History.
That was an AP History text? I know it was a while ago but I don't remember mine being that poorly written.
Mine (“American Pageant”) definitely wasn’t.
