What she meant to say is, "Nah, doesn't matter if they get out and vote. In Arizona, our corrupt Republican Secretary of State will make sure that their votes don't count."
Agreed that the Green Party has failed to become a viable force in electoral politics at the national level, although it has succeeded in some smaller jurisdictions around the country. However, your flippant dismissal of Jill Stein's arrest warrant bears closer inspection.
She was arrested at Standing Rock, in solidarity with hundreds of tribal nations that have gathered to resist the domination of the fossil fuel industry and the damage that its stupid, dangerous, and fundamentally unnecessary pipeline would do to their water, health, cultural integrity, sacred ground, and ancestral graves.
If more politicians had the kind of spine Jill Stein has--you know, integrity, utilitarian values, commitment to principle, courage to stand up to corporations rather than kowtowing to them, all the things Billary Clinton lacks--then we would not be in the mess we are in.
You don't have to vote for Ms. Stein, but you could at least show her the respect she has earned.
Conclusion: Social media, like all technology, creates at least as many problems as it solves. Or, put another way, provides at least as many dangers and drawbacks as benefits.
It is making us a nation of idiots. The ongoing infantilization of our political culture that is so starkly evident in this election is a perfect example.
That jackass is lucky no one ever kicked him in the chest. Or somewhere further south....
When you are at a job you are not "just there to work". You do not automatically abdicate your humanity or medical needs when you go to work.
People do have some rights in the workplace, plain and simple. Employers do NOT have absolute authority over their employees, plain and simple. Laws strike the balance between the two. If you can't understand that, maybe you should crawl back under your rock and think about it for a few years.....
A spirited rally, but Nintz takes the game.
Nintzel 1, Asstrolls 0.
Actually, that photo is better than a mugshot, and worth a thousand words. Two self-absorbed people who are more concerned about their Ken and Barbie image/lifestyle than their child's welfare.
Stoudamire was in possession of a small amount of marijuana, which is a "crime" that will no longer be a crime in this state in a few months, but even in its current status is often addressed with exactly the sort of diversion/treatment/monitoring regime Mr. Silent Majority lays out in his post.
Agreed that CHUMPsters are definitely not the Majority, but maybe you should go back to being Silent until you know WTF you're talking about...
