Want to blame somebody?
Blame the DEA.
Opioids aren't inherently harmful, the reality is that they give many people relief from chronic pain. But when that's taken away because puritanical "law enforcement" agencies decide people are getting "too much" then chronic pain victims are forced to turn to street drugs.
Did big pharma over-promote? Sure. But they are NOT who caused the problem here. Prohibitionists are.
"We don't want to pay our employees a fair wage, and we're going to cause more fires if we have to!"
As with everything else, there's not a lifeguard shortage, there's a pay shortage.
Last year on Reddit there was some guy in the local sub whining about not having enough lifeguards and that they might have to cut pool hours.
Out of curiosity, I asked what they were paying. $11/hour.
I suggested that if he try $25 he might get better results.
The only sane thing to do at this point is for them to admit the mistake and apply to join the EU.
This time around, they won't get to keep their own currency or their own border controls, and it'll be better for everybody.
I just wonder how long it'll take with them doing every other stupid thing before they figure it out.
Sadly, instead of the extra light in the day being used for leisure, it's being wasted on more work.
Whether I would depends on how desperate I was for toilet paper.
(They don't even make good toilet paper.)
No, that's complete bull.
Black conservatives are Democrats, because the Democratic Party is mostly a center-right conservative party. Even the "left" of the Democratic Party is really just center-left, not in any sense of the word actually leftist.
Fans of TFG along with pretty much anybody still voting Rethuglican are right-wing extremists, not conservatives.
Very little. Corporate office real estate has almost nothing to do with the economy as a whole, a lot of it is privately held, which means it's only owned by rich people and won't touch the stock market at all.
Ultimately the crash will be good for the economy, because the prices are artificially inflated. And when offices are renovated into or torn down and replaced by housing, cities will recover nicely.
The reality is that we don't need office space anywhere. It's utterly pointless, everything done in an office can be done at home. It's ultimately going to crash to zero no matter what. Factories have value, warehouses have value, office space does not.
While the right-wing disinformation garbage disappearing will be a good thing for the country and the world, I do have concerns about low-power highway information stations. They're almost always AM, and their entire purpose is to broadcast urgent information to drivers. I'm not sure state transportation departments are prepared or able to move them to FM.
Eh, if I see it somewhere I will probably try it.
I doubt I'd like it, but it sounds interesting, and I'll try just about anything interesting once.
Oh hey, one of THOSE headlines.
No. Of course it's not constitutional.
Biden's best move is to ignore it. No negotiation, no discussion, just order the treasury to continue business as usual and ignore the unconstitutional "debt limit".
NO, WE DO NOT.
Sure, buttons are fine for a few things. But give me a big touchscreen over wasting space on a bunch of buttons any day.
And I will NEVER own a car with an idiotic analog speedometer again. What kind of fool thinks that's a good idea now? Digital was better in the '80s, it's better now.
I kind of remember 8th grade US history.
My teacher was an elderly Black man, he had taught at the segregated school up on the hill before it was closed. Nice guy, truly awful teacher. The thing I remember most was that he was a huge Christopher Columbus fan. No, really. He talked about how he would shed a tear for Columbus, because he "didn't know he'd reached the new world". It was almost hero worship level, not just inaccurate, but we also got no coverage of Columbus's atrocities. We got nothing of Black history either, he'd not just lived through segregation, he'd taught through it, and we got nothing at all about it.
The old segregated school is still there today, it's a museum now. And I hope 8th grade history includes a walk up that hill to the museum, but I suspect it doesn't. It's got bronze statues of the first kids to walk down that hill to school, some of those kids were the parents of my friends.
We weren't taught that history. But at least we covered slavery being wrong. We're going backwards.
He belongs there. He is already a Ruzzian agent, moving to RT might just make it obvious to the few Faux Newz viewers who aren't actually traitors.
Yep. Biden is the not great, not terrible president.
Infinitely better than any Rethuglican, but too old, too center-right, and too out of it.
I'll vote against him in the primary again, and then I'll vote for him in the general again.
Please run, AOC. It'll be good practice for 2028.
With all the white right-wing nutjobs in Putin's pocket they go after Black leftists first? Seriously?
No, that's not excusing anybody shilling for Putin right now. But I'm also not going to excuse obvious cop racism.
Just making things up, are we? Ireland is 11.30. Germany is 12.00. UK is 10.90, or 11.95 in London.
Those are all well above $7.25. And they're still awful, but we should be better, not worse.
Huh? There's no rule against it. It's usually not done, mostly because there's a perception that having them come from different states will bring more votes, but it's absolutely 100% legal for president and vice president to be from the same state.

I don't play sportsball and I've only been in the Denver airport, but I've spent several days in Albuquerque, and I can honestly say I never even noticed. I actually just looked it up, and Albuquerque is higher than Denver - I didn't think it was.
But yeah, I didn't notice any difference, and where I live is maybe 800' above sea level.
