If only we had some way to address the root cause of the rise in violent outbursts, rather than just "more boot"

"Collectable Interest" on paper, is good for valuation, and can be sold as a security for cash to the next sucker, who then may or may not ever realize that collection.

Same thing as medical debt, where you can get it for pennies on the dollar.

This is all stupid, for one thing I'm the type of person who says Good Morning as my first greeting of someone of the day until like 2 or 3 in the afternoon depending on how much coffee I've had. If someone ever says "Its afternoon!" I just respond, "Yes, and?"

House of Cards season 8 sure is a humdinger. :suicide:

Both West Wing and House of Cards gaslighted people into believing that our benignly evil system is competent and orderly and that the reigns of power are procedural rather than the reality that its all just vibes based.

I saw a similar opinion on Bluesky and it got me thinking: I think it's doing the whole thing a disservice to let Boeing skate as "incompetent". They aren't. The debacles with the Max and 787 (and maybe the nascent 777X) aren't down to incompetence, they are the byproduct of intentional, planned cutbacks of key talent and infrastructure done under the aegis of a federal government that will bail them out. Malicious, short-sighted, sure. Not incompetent.

Yeah this is a good way to phrase it.

Exceptionally productive MBA brain juicing quarterly earnings is indistinguishable from incompetence

Except real wage data suggests that upper middle class (particularly tech!) is doing worse and lower tier is actually showing improvement for the first time in many decades.

:rubby:

Any improvement is 1) fifteen years overdue and 2) still below actual inflation.

If itís collateral on a mortgage and itís seized Iím hoping the bank(s) just get the shaft and have no claim.

Some gently caress around and find out when you donít do due diligence on your investment.

How does one find data to see if Holland's tourism numbers have steadily declined as more and more countries legalize weed?

If weed is half the gateway drug I was promised as a child in the DARE program then Holland's tourism should instead have increased substantially as all these new legal druggies travel there for more extreme thrills.

He could do literally anything and it would probably do more than the Democrats plan just by virtue of being 100x more chaotic than whatever liberal ďraise interest rates and praise job creatorsĒ the economists are smoking.

My point isn't that they should ship proof the bridge my point is that it would be a mistake to not take umbrage with and scrutinize the bridge component of the incident. Trusting administrative controls to prevent disaster is basically a textbook engineering ethics case study in What Not To Do, and yet, is exactly what was done. Whoever made the decision to needs to be under a microscope.

The people who made those decisions are at best 80 to 90 and otherwise dead of old age and lung cancer.

I hope all the goons in the stock trading thread shorted it. That seems to have been as easy of a win as any stock trade could ever be.

I'm not going to go check myself, I just hope they did.
