If anyone thinks regulation killed American jobs, in any industry, it should point a big fucking spotlight on their lack of understanding of US history.\

AS tech advanced, the number of laborers required for the same job decreased. As opposed to human beings and laborers in general seeing the benefits of that increased productivity, the managers and owners instead took exponential increases in pay.


General strikes happened...in almost every major city in the US, in our history. When labor refuses to work, there is no longer a country to run. No taxes paying security forces, no money for the military. That was a very real event in US history....labor runs the country....without it there is no country to rule, defend, profit from.


contempt, refusal, ignorance, denial...


It can, and has, reached a point where positions of perceived privilege ceased to exist.

The defeatist bullshit is over.


look at a post from 10 years ago....NOTHING has changed.

There is no carte blanche on dissent, or fuckin monopoly on outrage.

accuse, become, abuse.




Not a single so called "liberal media" outlet even mentioned, referring to the 500 year storm in Houston, the most rainfall ever recorded, no more than a cursory reference, that, "man-made global emissions" had anything to do with it.

When major highways become major rivers, when the biggest refinery in the US has to shut down......what's it gonna take for people to realize that major change is not only here, but that its the pattern now?

being anti-Automation is so 1960s

being anti-Artificial Intelligence is the 2017 way to earn unsatisfying sex with that cold fish future NGO worker from class who looks like she hasn't eaten meat in 12 years
