It's important to be kind...but don't be a doormat.
I keep thinking I need some new clothes since a lot of the stuff I have is getting a well-worn look. But then I think…what for? Probably have to go on a shopping blitz next year sometime.
Might have violated social distancing, but I hugged a friend goodbye a few days ago. We hugged so long, people might have thought it looked weird since we aren’t a romantic couple, but we were both so hug starved that we just went with it for a while.
Great metaphor. I will probably reuse it!
I know a couple far left progressives who specifically use the word “screwed” in regards to what happened to Bernie. They were planning to take the Ted route and not vote, but over the last month they have changed their minds and are voting for Biden. They are still pretty unhappy about it, but they say that’s what they will do. As we are all star trek fans, one of them quoted, “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few…or the one.” A statement I don’t agree with in all cases, but this time I do.
The false equivalency of today’s cartoon notwithstanding, I was given more insight today by Ted’s tweet about not voting for Biden because he (and other progressives he knows) HATE Biden, not because of a grudge about Bernie getting screwed. Hate is selfish, irrational and destructive. This explains so much.
Was their ever justice in America? Innocence has always been determined largely by race and economic status. Occasionally a rich white person gets sacrificed if their crime causes enough public outrage, but they still get a relatively small sentence.
I guess I added the “hate-based” because I live in a midwest county that feels like it is wholly owned by white supremist christian organization.
I remember the days when people would boycott something for being exploitive, offensive or racist. These days people boycott something they get for free because on one day it doesn’t sufficiently amuse them and provide the proper amount of escapism. Strange world we live in nowadays.
Got it. Your answer is no.
It’s really peculiar that you don’t have enough courage to even type a straightforward, “No”…even in a case like this where it is anonymous.
So as long as Jason is the owner, it could work out for him even without a successful product…if this was originally a strip during the dot-com boom. Some tech company owners became rich without ever actually selling a successful product and with substantial operating losses. The employees generally got screwed over, but the owners of the companies sometimes did pretty well for themselves.
