I hate to say it folks, I hate to break it to you, but there are much more fundamental issues to concern ourselves with than gun laws.

How about ending homelessness?

How about ending poverty?

How about universal health care?

How about guaranteed basic income and employment?

Grow up already!

(Just so you know I am in the process of buying a bunch of guns myself.)

Amazon Is Firing Its Delivery Firms Following People’s Deaths

Basically, contracting equals fraud. Contracting equals diminished quality, diminished product, diminished customer service, diminished satisfaction, diminished lifespan, diminished value, diminished society. Society is diminished by the institution of contracted labor. Fuck contracting. It’s a way to cover your ass at the expense of workers, i.e., people who actually do work in the world as opposed to sitting on piles of money and making phone calls and pushing buttons. Contracting is a way for cowards, ignoramuses, and the lazy and recalcitrant to avoid responsibility and legal liability.

What can be heralded as a success should also be recognized as a symptom of a catastrophic failure of our society in general. Very sad.

But it’s critical to remember that it doesn’t have to be this way. By exercising our right to choose where we live, where we spend our money, who gets our vote at the ballot box, we can guide the direction of our future. You don’t have to raise torches and pitchforks in order to make a change.

Anita Hill Documentary Is Essential Viewing to Put the Brett Kavanaugh Hearings in Context – IndieWire

The headline took the words right out of my mouth! πŸ™‚

This really was an Illuminating documentary. Fortunately I got to see it in theater in Bethesda, Maryland, when it came out. I would highly recommended in any case but especially right now I think it would be extremely valuable given the political context of the fraudulent Supreme Court hearings we’re witnessing these days.

I was somewhat politically aware during this episode in American history but watching the documentary was so much more enlightening and I came away from it with both an extremely high amount of respect for Anita Hill and an extremely high amount of disgust and disappointment in our white-male-supremacist political leadership (including the now beloved-by-association Uncle Joe Biden) that continues to infect our politics. It’s time for us to finally rid our American body of this virus don’t you think?
