    Things did change a lot after the 70s. I attribute it to the end of Bretton Woods in 1971. I think it took the whole decade for the resulting damage to snowball, and really become apparent to non-rich people. It’s not like they warned the general population outright about how bad things were about to get. Inflation became more and more significant throughout the 70s. It was discussed constantly! It was a favorite topic of comedians (See old Johnny Carson monologues.) Every politician promised they were going to stop inflation. By the mid 70s, "shrinkflation" was already a thing. I can't remember when penny candy became extinct - I think it was the 80s. Don’t know what part of the country your brothers were in, but in my neck of the woods things were not that rosy. As a young person it was not possible to pay rent AND save up money to buy a brand new car with cash, or make a down payment on a house while you were still in your early 20s. For above-minimum-wage pay, you had to “know” someone (a relative or family friend) that could get you into a higher paying job. This was the case even if you just wanted any factory job with decent benefits, say, at the Ford plant or Westinghouse. (This was once a reliable way to support your family.) During the 70s the factories had already started closing down. There was no such thing as an "apprenticeship" and if "internships" happened, they weren't advertising for them in the papers. You had to be accepted by a union, so you had to either know someone, or fulfill a quota to get hired. (The concept of racial DEI isn’t new, it just wasn’t admitted to.) No one remembers that every day, the media was always using terms like “joblessness” and “unemployment crisis”. Of course, I’m from a state that’s always had a lot of corruption and that has it’s effect.

    Yes - I recall reading quotes someone had posted from the 60s, of some college students saying that their degrees didn't guarantee that they would find work anymore and they felt scammed. There's always been someone pushing this notion that the previous generation had it so much easier than those just starting out and I think it's intentionally deceitful. It's probably the reason the "elites" started dividing us up with terms like "baby boomer", generation X, millennial. etc., Rather than blaming the corrupt elites that fucked us over during the previous generation(s) - say, by murdering our president, or stealing our gold, or ending bretton-woods, or sending our jobs overseas (all without us being quite aware of what they are pulling till it's too late) - they obscure/deny the past hardships ever existed and condition each generation to believe the previous one simply had an easy time. You grow up following a certain path, only to find out after it's too late, that that path doesn't work at all. You've been exploited and other people got rich exploiting you. In this way they scam us all, while making each generation blame, and feel resentful towards, those before them.

    "the will of Congress"? Since when is that a thing? The correct expression is "the will of the people" but neither Johnson or Biden are considering that. Traitors!

    (DailyCaller - Nicole Silverio) May 08, 2024 - 5:41 PM ET Gaetz has an interesting point in that he assumes there are 2-3 republicans who are ripe for bribing. It's as if he has specific people in mind.

    Not happy with Trump's truthsocial response! :/ I know he's got a lot to deal with right now, but this makes it sound like he doesn't grasp the situation at all - that is - that Johnson is a backstabber who went out of his way to vote with the dems for legislation that we don't want; still spying on us, yet again splurging on extremely excessive foreign aid, and failing to acknowledge that we have been invaded. "Mike Johnson is a good man who is trying very hard." WTF?! Mike Johnson is a weak piece of shit who is indifferent to the well-being of American citizens! Did he delegate this response to still-incompetent staff?! Or must I accept that he will definitely be stabbing us in the back?

    That sounds reasonable for an actual hunter and it's how I’ve always seen it depicted on the screen and in books - but - the story says she took the dog on a hunt so it could learn from the other dogs. Instead it acted nuts and ruined the whole hunt, spoiling her fun. Does not sound like she took the dog's training very seriously. I suppose training an animal is less fun than shooting them. I think she's a poser and a show-off. If Trump picked her as his VP she’d be worse than Pence - if that is even possible! - and it would make me seriously doubt Trump’s ability to ever be even a half-way decent president. She’s part of a cult, too. This is crazy talk. This sounds accurate. My dog bit me once (not badly) - it was a case of displaced aggression and I wouldn't have dreamed of killing him for it (RIP - He lived to a ripe old age and was put to sleep at the vet's office). In the original Guardian story, it is implied that she spoke about this because she believes it proves she can ‘do anything “difficult, messy and ugly” if it simply needs to be done’... as if this is a great leadership quality.

    Admittedly, not into hunting culture, but… If you’ve trained the dog to hunt pheasant, why would you be surprised when it goes after chickens too? Aren’t they both ground birds? She had just positively enforced the dog to hunt ground birds, then failed to secure the excited dog in her truck while she stopped to bullshit with a chicken-owning friend. Her own stupidity, but the big brat kills the dog for embarrassing her. …and hunting pheasant? with a pack of dogs? What is she, a fucking duke?! Does she wear a red jacket and jodhpurs for this? Yelling “Tally-ho”? I have noticed she does love playing dress up and let’s pretend, much like Justin Trudeau. Seen her wearing many “cute” outfits portraying her as a state trooper, plumber, other stuff - always perfectly tailored for her. What a priss! Was her former career being a beauty pageant contestant? I’ll speculate that the male goat was likely there to sire some fun and adorable baby goats and once his job was done, it’s time to kill his inconvenient ass. This woman is vile.

    1783814926596743281 https://twitter.com/RepThomasMassie/status/1783814926596743281 This is the sense I get about these protests. They’re contrived by government operatives and carried out by the coddled, conformist, rich (and otherwise entitled) kids who inhabit the universities - all to distract attention from the abuse being heaped on American citizens. The fact that Mike Johnson made a point of speaking at a university - as if this is America’s #1 issue! - reiterates that he’s a complete and utter asshole. I think they expect us to now unite and defend him from the response he predictably received, as if he’s “our team” and we’re supposed to be offended for him. Pffft.

    Thank you for the attempt at explaining - it was thoughtful of you and I started to read it - but 1 1/2 sentence into it, I was reminded that football is meaningless and boring, and requires that one shut off 99.9% of one’s thought processes. I realized I don't care enough to learn anything about it’s intricacies and stopped reading. I will never understand how so many otherwise thought-capable people derive anything positive from the ritual of gathering in groups and watching strangers play such a brainless, boring game. Ex.“He’s got the ball! Oh, he dropped it!" "He’s got the ball! Oh, he dropped it!" Repeat one thousand times... Participating in football-watching strikes me as an exercise in extreme, brain-warping, conformity. No offense dannno. It was considerate of you to take the time to explain - I just can't care. Sorry, I guess I should have put this in the unpopular opinion thread. Yes, why conform to dullness?
