Heat seeking employee missile for identity disruption, histrionic antics around self, political correctness organizing instead of actually working, defiance tactics, insubordination, probable drug use, threatening demeanor with lots of 'sick' time and lateness, alienation of clients and 'normal' staff, and 'attitude' rather than skill set.

What's not to like?

If she appeared at the door and exclaimed, I! AM! WET! MOUNT! ME!, likely any guy would gift her with the sanctifying balm as long as he could take her from behind.

Growing up in a somewhat rural part of New Jersey, the only things I can think of when seeing a nose ring like that are: pig or bull.

Not every country has the same laws as USA.


This is often used as an excuse for lots of dispicable things on the left. “well it’s their culture”, so Muslims are allowed to cut off girls clits in Europe.

It’s either a bad idea or not, and in this case, censoring the video is a bad idea because it goes down the rabbit hole of totalitarianism and thought control that Orwell warned us about.

yes, all sitting presidents must condemn all mass murderers weekly to show that he doesn't approve of them.


No, if the mass murderers are Muslim (as is usually the case), then condemning them is RACIST because they’re just misunderstood, yo!

What the world needs now is a Bernhard Goetz on every train. Assault honest citizens, expect others to come to their aid. The further we get from that, the closer we are to the precipice of civilizational collapse.

Patrick

Why do you stay in California? I assume you are not stuck there with no means of leaving.


@WineHorror1 The answer is mostly that I finally once again found a job I really love. My last such job was 1999 to 2004. I really can't think of any good reason to complain about my current job. I'm not on pager duty, the pay is fine, the insurance coverage is amazing, the work is interesting, the location is good, the people are great overall. Maybe I won't get rich at it, but that's OK.

Also, I've been in the Bay Area so long (22 years now) that most of my friends are here, and even a few relatives I didn't know about when I first arrived. It would be pretty hard to leave all that.

So there are always tradeoffs. I don't like the housing prices, the shit on the sidewalks, or the 98% of tech workers who are violently intolerant towards even mild and well-reasoned questioning of The Narrative. But if I leave, I lose a lot of good things along with the bad.

1. Screaming about income inequality making people poor (big fat lie). Check.
2. Holds FDR on a pedestal even though all of his programs were, in hindsight, big fat failures. Check.
3. Quote someone who has never been right about anything, Paul Krugman. Check.

Democratic Socialism 101. Check.

Yes! I love that guy. Fuck the NZ censors.

I have a copy of the shooter's manifesto here because it helps explain things, and I don't like people telling me what I cannot say in public:

I'm ambivalent about posting the video though. I hate censorship, but I feel sorry for the people who were killed, even though Islam has inspired much worse countless times.

I’ve no idea how the NZ government thinks they can police the internet. Even China knows they have to have a Great Firewall to keep unwanted content from their citizens.

The program is misleading in many ways about issues of recovery. Methadone maintenance is NOT recovery, it is an alternative intoxication and addiction that is deemed more manageable because the social service agencies take the place of the pusher with free meds and no needles are involved. Often times, addicts themselves are put in charge of certain aspects of the programs.

Unfortunately, drugs users for all intents and purposes are practicing sociopaths. They will say ANYTHING to keep getting their fix, and they know very well how to bullshit and appeal to the heartstrings of the gullible or well intentioned. I have met a few methadone customers, and the maintenance types practice the same squirrelly, manipulative con crap that the street addicts do, but they are healthier on public assistance. AND they are still stoned. Their eyes are pinned and their affect is not that of a sober person. They are delighted that they are stoned and can convince people that while using they are "normal", employable and trustworthy. They may be better than on heroin, but they are not sober.

These drugs corrupt nearly everybody that come in contact with them, over social issues and issues of money, because there is just so much money to be had from selling. Social issues become Alice in Wonderland, because everybody is bullshitting everybody else and nothing is real any more. Selling sex and interpersonal power trips also become part of the scene. The addicts will play the 'official' social services scene like a fiddle while running their street cons on the side, often intermingling their preferred heroin with the methadone used to prevent withdrawal or take off the edge. Some of them will also just sell the methadone if they can, and buy heroin.

Even the social service types get corrupted and often become part of the problem/con rather than the solution. Some of the social service officers interviewed in the cited video, in addition to promoting their own employment, seem to fit into the con category because they are just not being honest about what drug maintenance involves and promote the delusion that it is some kind of 'recovery' or repatriation to morally and legally chaste society when it is not. They are just managing addicts in a less harmful environment (ostensibly).

Real recovery requires abstinence and the sociopathic behavior can take upwards of a year to wane.

Addiction is a death sentence, and abstinence is only realistic for a small minority of highly motivated addicts, estimated to be as low as two percent long term clean time for motivated narcotics addicts in programs.

Is maintenance preferable? Of course it is. You should give them all the drugs they want for free under controlled circumstances. It's as close as you will ever get to behavior modification for true addicts. Just forget about the boy scout and normalized citizen worker bee delusions, they are still addicts and would still kill granny for a fix.

Lol, it's been more than two years of nonstop TDS in the media.

If Mueller had anything other than pure TDS too, we would all have heard about it already.

In reality Islamophobia being used for mass migration, chain migration from Islam driven over populated areas. They in turn become economic burden to destination countries as they do not match skills needed for modern countries. Since they do not mix culturally, that leads to never ending conflicts, social unrest, no respect on laws until all are converted to Islam. They use religion and god as soft weapons and team up across the country boarders to extract power, benefits etc from the hard working people at destination country. Study all Islamic countries briefly, to get an idea where is your slow train wreck country in it path if it becomes one.

Feel bad that a mosque got shot up but Islam needs to examine the violence within its own culture before it uses this incident as some sort of crusading horse against Islamophobia.

Islam is still violent , anti-woman, anti-gay, and anti-freedom.

Fuck Islam.

Tell me what it would rent for and I'll tell you the fair price to buy it.

Say that the rent on that is $4000/month, therefore $48k/year.

Divide that by the current interest rate, say 5% (0.05).

So then the approximate fair value of the house (break-even for a landlord) would be $960k.

Therefore, at an asking price of $1.89m the house is overpriced by about $930k. You would be making a gift of $930k if you paid the asking price.

That's a great analysis.

The problem for neoliberals is their "solution" is mass immigration, stagnant wages, and stoking the Ed Bubble as a distraction. "Just get another Master's in Lesbian Dance, then you will achieve your salary aspirations!"

IF all Irish immigrants had been denied entry because of a few murderous Irish that had come earlier, then neither Patrick nor I would be here.

Irish came legally, without breaking laws during entry. You are again confusing legal vs. illegal immigration.

marcus says
Which laws ? The ones that say all illegals need to be deported ? The ones that say hiring illegals is a serious crime ?

Both. Lock up those who do not enforce deportation of illegals, and those who hire them (such as chairmen of food packaging companies and builders). Fine those who hire illegals at $100 K per each illegal employed. Make CEO's personally criminally responsible for hiring illegals.

New bullshit headlines, have shown that illegal and legal immigrants have far lower rates of criminality than home-grown white thugs.

Don't 100% of illegal immigrants commit crimes?

If you want to help the uneducated and unskilled whites in this country, then stop allowing in millions of uneducated and unskilled immigrants as over-competition. That's not rocket science. That, and improving our industrial base and export economy, is the main gist of Trump's presidency.

Whites can't get construction jobs because they don't speak the required language: Spanish. Seriously, how screwed up is that.
