    A big contributing factor to this is that it people are going to hospitals/facilities a lot more often, for dumber reasons. It taxes the system and ensures there's a lot more chance for something to go wrong. The flip side is --- as in most other jobs that interact with the public, it seems --- there are way too many surly, entitled, lazy employees. The difference is that these employees are in charge of life/death decisions. Barring some amazing hospital I've never heard of, I can't recall someone ever saying "the hospital stay was fine; nurses were attentive, cheerful, plentiful, and informative, and I saw the doctor a couple of times each day to update him on my care and have my questions answered. I was able to rest up and get better, and my room changes and discharge were processed timely." Nope, there are some universal gripes about hospital stays in the US, and they are universal for a reason. While most of that seems superficial, they all contribute to those deaths from medical errors.

    Btw why is there so much more room between the two players in front of the offending phallus? If one of the other guys in his row had his tallywacker out, you wouldn't be able to see it since their shoulders are virtually overlapping. It would make sense if one of them was the guy who dared him to show his One-Eyed Willy, but it reeks of conspiracy.

    Yearbooks don't automatically get printed. Staff and other students take a look at them. For something like a team photo, there are usually several shots taken so that you have something to publish even if the QB's eyes are closed, someone was sneezing... or there's a wagging dick in the middle. If he's in this much trouble, I can only imagine what the yearbook people are in for. He only posed for this obvious pornography, but they distributed it! :eek: Seriously. It's a penis. It doesn't really belong in a yearbook, but if those 15 year old guys have never seen a penis before --- hell they've probably seen HIS penis in the locker room.

    You haven't worked in an office that's gone "paperless" I guess. Those people who used to move the papers around, still do. Instead of putting them into folders, they shove them into scanners. Those same employees --- plus extra ones --- are in charge of taking those documents that have already been scanned and putting them into boxes to store, because paper records are seldom destroyed once they're generated. Then they catalogue them in case the company gets audited. They also compare the scans to the paper documents. They run retrieval drills to see how quickly they can retrieve a given file to find a document. They respond to requests from law offices for medical records, which are always requests for paper records, and involve making photocopies or printing out the records and putting them in the mail. So really there's no giant miraculous shift there; it's a slight shift and fully within the wheelhouse of the person who was working exclusively with paper files before.

    I mean look at the fluffin' OP for fluff's sake. It's all about some establishment douchebag crying about how Donald Trump is TOTALLY RUINING THE GOP!!! How can anyone with a brainstem not see what is going on??? The GOP is run by globalist douchebags who are freaking out because a non-libertarian billionaire has gone off the reservation and chosen to fluff everything up for them. THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS AT THIS POINT!

    I've already described various ways in which Trump hurts the establishment, and all that you are willing to do is point out times in the past that appear to contradict some (not all) of those points. Why should I continue to explain the basis for my point of view if all that you are going to do is ignore it completely? (mod edit) like you are totally impossible to have honest conversations with.

    Except that I'm not the one who is intentionally only looking at one side of the coin. I'm not going to repeat the ways in which Trump poses a problem for the establishment, because a (mod edit) like you is just going to play dumb about it anyway. It's not my fault if basic reality is something that fails to pique your interest.

    You know that they exist and you don't care. For you, all of this is just some passive-aggressive exercise in playing dumb. In the end, I guess that losertarians really only care about preserving the status-quo. I guess that you feel like you would be out of a job or something, if the establishment were to actually take a hit from someone that is capable of inflicting major damage upon it.

    Not exactly. What you are doing is cherry-picking only those "facts" that appear to show Trump as being on the side of the establishment - and even there you are not completely correct. Foreign-policy is an area where Trump shows a lot of disagreement with the establishment. Just ask John McCain. The fact that you (mod edit).

    At least I can acknowledge the fact that Trump has some tendency to speak from both sides of his mouth. You are the one who only wants to talk about the side that supports your own biased point of view.

    You are either daft or dishonest to claim that he is not challenging the status quo at all. A losertarian in 1776 could just as easily have said that you might as well support King George III because George Washington had slaves.

    In short, regardless of what Trump has actually said (or not said), people feel more comfortable being racist in an open, proud way than I've seen before. It's also an extension of decades of fighting racism by pointing the finger at other races, which is a bit like bombing to promote peace. It's not an encouraging trend to me. It's not Trump's fault, either. It's the inevitable result of what's been going on over the years coupled with a perceived positive connotation to "telling it like it is" on one side and becoming part of a "movement" on the other end of the spectrum. Then you have others saying the way to fight all of this is to make safe spaces and avoid certain pronouns, and to impose tolerance on the rest of the nation at whatever cost --- in dollars and dignity. God help us all.

    I realize that Attila the Trump has a history of being a goon, and still kind of is a goon, but who actually gives a shyzer? The fact that he is going up against the establishment in some way and actually managing to sell his revolution to the public is all that really matters at this point. Being married to losertarianism at all costs will accomplish nothing aside from maintaining the status-quo. Wake me up when someone like Ron Paul actually has a chance of getting elected President.

    Like I said - Trump is not playing for the team that intentionally wishes to destroy the USA. He may have been wrong about some things in the past, and I don't even doubt that he is still wrong about some things today, but his business acumen truly is great, and a couple of bankruptcies don't really diminish that very much. In fact, being that the USA is essentially bankrupt now, why not have someone in charge that has experience with bankruptcy? Actually declaring bankruptcy is a million times more honest than quietly selling the country to globalist fascists piece by piece. And sorry, Trump just is not part of the cabal that you are referring to.

    Attila the Trump is the one who is looking at the whole thing through a standard, business-lens: He's serious about hitting ISIS where it hurts, letting Russia do it as well, NOT arming them, making a ring around the oil, and saving money elsewhere inside the military. Orders of magnitude better than the standard neocon who only really wants to turn the whole of the USA into a military base while simultaneously bankrupting it. Also: Higher tariffs > Managed trade deals written by a cabal of globalist fascists

    John McCain is one of the worst traitors in US history. The guy just wants to arm ISIS all day long so that America can eventually be bankrupted in endless wars. Only stupid arseholes with no clue whatsoever fail to realize that this and "Free Trade Deals" are how a cabal of fascists intend to swallow the USA up into a GLOBAL system.

    Compared to the usual, establishment politicians that generally work directly for the globalist cabal, Donald Trump is George Washington (also not exactly a "libertarian", per se).

    If Trump was a team player, he would not be disturbing the apple cart the way that he is. Calling out illegals, phoney wars, trade deficits/deals and the dishonest media are all things that you do not do as long as you want to go along to get along. Instead, he has chosen break all of the rules and take advantage of the shizer-storm that he has been creating. And screw that gimpy little bastard with the camera - media whores should be tarred and feathered for their treason.

    You're missing some of what was said, possibly due to the surrounding noise. Getting through the next years is the alternative to NOT getting through it. Nothing in her post suggests a "shelter in place and do nothing" kind of attitude. In fact, the post talks about elections at a variety of levels. Whether those of us still living in the US like it or not, our lives are still going to intersect the Government on some level or another. It behooves us to try to elect decent people locally to help staunch the bleeding, locally. Those elections don't happen "every eight years" and none of us is patting ourselves on the back, resting on our voting someone in. It's an ongoing process, to elect people we can actually be proud of. Hell, it's an ongoing process just to get a choice in some local elections.

    I see this argument a lot, and it could have been made a century ago. There are some fields that will wind up being fully automated. There are new fields that don't even exist yet. Machines need to be created, programmed, assembled, audited, shipped, serviced, and so on. Then there are the fields where it's been promised that automation will take over for many, many years, but it doesn't quite cut it. I've run through a dozen different versions of proofreading software, and none of them are worth a damn. They're certainly not worth the expense and hassle of switching over entire processes to make use of them. Then there's the paperless society and electronic medical records. If our records are electronic, why does it take the same amount of staff to shepherd them through the process? Electronic records must be audited, maintained, corrected, and so on, and certain aspects are still kept on paper as "wet signature" documents. That last part is being phased out, but in order to do so, each clinician has to be issued a tablet to use out in the field so that they can obtain electronic signatures. Someone has to maintain those machines, which will see a LOT of wear and tear. There will be a reduction in employment (maybe) but there's nearly always a shift to new opportunities. Whether those opportunities are generated close enough for the unemployed to take advantage of them is another matter.

    And attempting to exercise with the wrong fuel can be a total disaster. While we can disagree on what constitutes the "wrong" kind of fuel, the fact that trying to keep moving with a shifting load of heavy, greasy, nutrient-poor food in your stomach is not wise... is pretty universal.

    Which is really not that long ago. The veterans that haven't died or gone crazy are plentiful, as are those who bought their way out of the line. There were many more who weren't drafted, but joined because of the threat hanging over their heads. Join early and you might get in good enough with the military not to be sent to the worst spots. It shows a naive faith in humanity in hindsight, but it also made the draft look smaller. Likewise, there's no draft now, but there was the scholarship scam. People I went to school with were quick to point out we "haven't had a big war in a long time" and took the scholarship money to get a cheap/free education that looked great on a resume. Their timing was largely decent, since most of them would have been close to finishing by the time 2001 rolled around, but those just a year or two behind would also find that education came with a really high cost.
