Research shows its power that defines who’s smart/dumb, normal/crazy
like when did gay people stop being mentally ill?
when they gained some political power
who has political power now
consequently non-rich people are socially suspect

Just found this through serendipity – can’t complain about the guests who are stellar –
I haven’t noticed any real effort to actually do much to move this admin anywhere.
a-zon’s plan is to put ups & fedex out of business too:
PO used to deliver locally 100% — I think it was under Obama you couldn’t have a local letter delivered locally anymore; if mailed here in the tulies to another location in the same…[Read more]
you mean usps supports them, right?
i don;t think ups & fedex are delivering for the PO
well, i can speak to the rural areas thing (also know my regular postman fairly well)
but recently i’ve seen more action from the dedicated amazon vans.
you knew what i meant.
you expected better of biden but seem to have been posting his failures non-stop since before the inauguration.
i didn’t expect much of him except that he wouldn’t sponsor a personal coup to stay in office
and perhaps could be forced to better live up to his rhetoric if people got off their butts
so far people planted…[Read more]
“Never brought an Amazon load to or from a USPS facility.”
Not sure what you’re saying here @soryang
If you mean that amazon doesn’t use usps for delivery of some of their goods, I think that’s incorrect. It was widely reported that they did, particularly ‘last mile’ delivery in rural areas.
That may have changed a bit since I read a-zon is…[Read more]
Yeah, that’s really interesting and terribly significant I’m sure.
I didn’t count donald trump or adolf hitler either, mainly because they weren’t mentioned in the story.
but to you, the lack of mention is fraught with malevolent intent. oh well, cant please everyone.
That was the rule that it had to prefund its retirements.
You’d think, wouldn’t you?

“A few years ago I had a conversation with an Irish-American accountant friend from New Jersey, who was in the process of planning a nursing home for her elderly parents. Her father was Irish and the family had maintained both their parents Irish passports and residency as a precaution for old age. As a typical accountant, she had carefully…[Read more]

Private equity has succeeded in exploiting economic choke points in much narrower sectors of the economy than experts in monopolies typically study. Health care is an ideal area in which to exploit the leverage of providers compared to patients. You can’t haggle over which ambulance comes to fetch you. Similarly, most who get an operation or n…[Read more]

Lots of conflicts of interest there, e.g.:
I suspect you’d find similar ones in all the media
“the providers like AT&T, Comcast, Verizon v. misinformation channels, like Fox News and OANN and Newsmax.”
They’re all misinformation channels
