But for the most part, no, youre not allowed to poop, at all. Oh, and if you refuse to take this job, then you'll be called "lazy".

    ... and Degree Inflation means more people have to borrow more money to qualify for jobs they will literally never be hired for. They've shifted the source of money creation (by borrowing into existence) to the people, which makes them Debt Slaves and willing to do what ever it takes to "pay off" those loans. Result is both Intellectual and Financial Slavery.

    Yeah, and that is exactly what happens with Group Think Psychology. Group Think is exactly the intended mindset that has caused those with half a clue as to what is going on in the world to refer to stupid people as "sheeple". Sheeple implies a Herd Think or Group Think, where the nature of the ideas is to propagate to those who do not hold on to those ideas. For Group Think to work, the ideas supported by the Group, and even the very nature of the Group itself must be Viral. A viral idea always has a replication protocol, just like it is the nature of an actual virus to replicate and spread, despite the negative consequences of that virus, be it a cold, flu, or whatever. Group Think is merely evidence of the viral nature of conformity to the ideas of the group. The trouble with Group Think is that the Group itself is not responsible for new ideas. The Group is lead by one individual, or a very small number of people. Those "leaders" present their ideas as being a part of the ideas of that Group. This allows the leaders to use the Group Think as a means of introducing new concepts as being related to the Group so that those ideas are not challenged by many. It works the other way also. If a non member of a group expresses an idea that could be associated with a particular Group, that individual is labeled by others as being a member of that Group. "Let's raise taxes to solve problems" is typically an idea that is held by Democrats, so when an individual expresses that idea, they are almost immediately identified as being a member of that Group, and this can lead to Self Identity as accepting a brand of Democrat. Facebook is nothing more than a huge Group, so almost all Group Think Psychology is applied heavily to all of its individual members. Many or most of the Facebook Group do not want to be a part of that group, and despite their best efforts to not accept the ideas that Zuckerberg sets forth as part of their thinking, the constant exposure to those ideas alter the thinking of those who use Facebook. Emotional Recognition is nothing more than another means by which to cause acceptance of Group Think Psychology. The intent is to cause not only total conformity, but replacement of Self Identity with Group Assigned Identity. You WILL be in a good mood at all times of making someone else money. You will love the restrictions placed upon you by the Leaders of your Groups. You will be shunned and are expected to be sad if you are not accepted into your role of Slave.

    Having a college degree does not always mean that a person is going to be a good fit for a job. Take a guy with a masters in engineering, and he is applying for a fast food job, part time, no benefits, minimum wage. How long do you think they are gonna stay at that job? --- We have been taught to make associations that simply are not true. Having a college degree does not mean that a person is going to be a better employee. This also completely discredits the Tradeskills by teaching society that they should look down on anyone including those with Tradeskills like Electrician or Plumber as useless and not deserving of any respect what so ever. "Oh, did you spend 15 years in your trade learning the skills to build my house? Fuck you, you should get paid minimum wage because I spent a bunch of money and got a college degree in poetry and am therefore better than you. And fuck you if you are a Vet. Poetry is more usefuller than you're useless stoopid carpentry skills you think are so valuable, and I expect you dont look down on me because my PhD in Fashion from France only qualified me to work at McDonalds where they also pay me miminum wage and now because of my degree also expect me to serve every meal to asshole customers with a smile and a unique rhyme every time, so I is bettar than you."

    100% of the world's T206 Honus Wagner baseball cards are held by just a couple of hundred people. Why should this make us think that the rise in the price of Honus Wagner cards is not the market at work? :confused: Originally sold for pennies (along with a pack of cigarettes), most Honus Wagner cards are now valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars. One of the cards - known as the "Jumbo Wagner" - has sold for over three million dollars. Note also that the value of a Honus Wagner card "isn’t based on any underlying asset, but rather largely on human sentiment" - and that the prices of the cards are often the product of "collusion" between the holders of the cards and large institutions (such as Christie's or Sotheby's), who together set a minimum "reserve" price.

    That could be the case. Though Trump like Bill Clinton may feel somewhat 'immunized' because he had faced/handled such charges during campaign.. except this new claim apparently. One has to wonder why Weinstein happened now and did not in past decades. was any pro Trump people behind that who provided cover to NYT owners against threats from Weinstein intimidation tactics? Won't be surprised if turned out that inner workings behind various recent expose' were still being kept from public.

    EM That is interesting selective use of collectivist terms, "some Jews" vs "the Arabs". Are you implying there are not "some Arabs" who want East Jerusalem as Capital of their State and do not claim that G-d promised the whole of that land to only them because they are special? EM Some US Jews probably see Christian evangelicals'pushing for such steps as 'anti-semitic'.

    It is true. It isn't about whether cops had guns "back then" or not. It's about the fact that, ever since the inception of "modern" police forces in the 19th century, cops have been the specially privileged enforcers of the state's statutory malum prohibitum rules (and only incidentally the apprehenders of malum in se offenders such as Bonnie & Clyde). That is what they do. That is what they are for. That is why they exist. Human nature has not changed. "The job" has just as powerful an attraction to the same kinds of people today as it did "back then" - sociopaths, sadists and others who get off on aggressively exercising authority over others with little or no accountability for their actions. Things like "nickel rides" or murderous "jailhouse" neglect and abuse (or the "code of silence" among "brothers in blue" that routinely attends the lack of exposure of such brutalities) are not of recent vintage - and it does not take guns to do what was done to people like Kelly Thomas or Eric Garner, either now or "back then." What is relatively new is the paramilitarization of police. But this did not create any of the aforementioned problems or the almost total lack of accountability for them. Those problems already existed, from the very start. (It is in the essential nature of the beast.) The paramilitarization of police has only served to exacerbate them, while the ubiquity of video (and the ease of disseminating video via the Internet) has made them much more difficult for the authorities (and their lapdogs in the media) to excuse or conceal. (The italicized bits here are the point of my original post.)
