I won't articulate this well, but I think one of the key mistakes people make in life is focusing on the revenues side of the equation and not the expenses side. Keeping your expenses down gives you the freedom to work the job you want and not the job you have to in order to keep ahead. A lot of those expenses, especially the recurring monthly ones, are for luxuries that soon just become background expectations. I was struck once about an article in the Wall Street...
And that's the joke. This has been tried before, when a Native American group wore "Fighting Whitey" shirts on campus (University of Northern Colorado, IIRC) as a protest. Of course all the white kids wanted to buy one, so they turned it into a business. I bought a hoodie from them.What the SJW's don't get is that most white people are pretty comfortable being white. Like most black people are pretty comfortable with being black.
I read all that author's books (Ian Anderson, IIRC). Wasp Factory is definitely the best, although he's got one about a lord and lady in a manor in some unnamed war-torn European country that's pretty good.
Rereading Peter Watts' Blindsight and Echopraxia. Brilliant, nihilistic, hard sci-fi. Love it. Book before was Lee Child's Bad Luck and Trouble. Somehow the book was stupider than the title. Think I'm done with the whole Jack Reacher series.
The sad thing is "these people" would be having protests if someone referred to radical muslims as terrifying.
I honestly can't tell if this is supposed to be funny or not. You state that the Klan is not hateful, then follow it up with an anecdote about a man who punched his high school-aged nephew at Christmas because he dated an Asian woman.
Which makes it difficult for, and I'm just throwing out a crazy hypothetical here, a US Secretary of State with a private email server to reward donors to a foundation that primarily benefits her and her husband. It's much easier for the politicians people to do good work and stimulate economies when it's direct, government-to-government aid.
I was offered a position very high up in the Southern Poverty Law Center. One of the reasons I turned it down, aside from the location of the corporate offices, was their obsession with the Klan and labeling hate groups. That seems to be the thing they prided themselves on the most is being the go-to decider of what is a hate group or not. Good for them for finding a niche but a lot of those groups consisted of a dozen or so people who had hung out at one time or...
And GAP had such a masculine, rugged image before this. Pity.
Florida is rather add in that there are many, many Republican latinos. At least half Cuban, but a ton from Colombia, Venezuela, etc....Not to get all Heraclitus on you, but the party changes with every new registration, every person leaving, and every election. Republicans are winning and the unadvertised part is they are winning with quite a few brown people. Hell, the first Haitian-American Congressman is a Republican woman from Utah.I'm one of them. When you...
