  1. He's half right -- just look at the 2008 fascist bailout. But I blame people for their own ignorance. Most people let politicians get away with it, and they like it that way. Fat, dumb, and happy. The want someone who will tell them what to think -- which is just what their leaders give them. They deserve what they get. Unfortunately we get sucked along with it. Shayne Thanks Shayne-I blame them too but voting for 3rd parties just doesnt get anything done either...not sure what the answer is. I like objectivism alot but there are so many shades of grey in trying to live that way and Rand never addressed them imho (and i mean humble-I admire Rand greatly)
  2. btw I agree it is lame and sloppy of this company to encourage it-it is just catering to the great unwashed clueless masses and further extending the problem but that IS what they want
  3. ugh I hate feeding the troll but guess what - my job stresses UNprofessionalism-yep dont use business platitudes like we appreciate your business-they say it sounds stiff and unfriendly using slang terms and no punctuation aka being "one" of the people is ENCOURAGED dang i am so mad i reacted to this
  4. sort of OT/OnT was watching some carlin after reading another thread here and came across this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV1lZMTCqf8&NR=1 comments? thanks everyone who responded in a helpful manner - I do appreciate it
  5. it certainly seems that way
  6. I love Carlin! Think I have seen all the youtube videos out there of him. I think this forum may be a little too 'highbrow' for me sometimes-I could do it certainly - have the capacity - just not the energy or the ambition to participate fully...maybe some time.
  7. thank you daunce! I will surely look into it-sounds good to me. uh oh it looks like they require relocation-doable if the assignment is only temporary.... Do you have anymore info? PM me if you think that is better than replying in the thread - thanks
  8. oh my goodness this has gotten messy. I am in my 40s and live in the northeast. The military is not an option for me. Thanks though very good idea! I did work as a tech professional for about 10 years then changed fields for the last 8 or so-now I am just basically looking for anything that pays more (even $9 an hour would be an improvement.)
  9. thank you both. I used to work tech-there are no jobs where I live now doing tech work. I had a tech support job over the summer (phone support) that also just paid just over minimum wage. I am posting normally for the reader's sake not because of bullying by someone who will remain nameless.
  10. geekgirl I love your fire and eloquence I still have that sometimes-not easy these days. esp the eloquence part fwiw I admire your spirit
  11. ugh! http://outsourcingmadeeasy.net/ do a google on outsourcing made easy as well if you really want to get mad
  12. ok for reasons i dont want to explain (because it is boring and self indulgent) i have 2 pt jobs one is very low paid this low paid one is the only permanent one i have so i have to deal with it they just changed our shifts and one of the days they gave me I cannot work-I am worried I will lose the job...not sure how to proceed except to change my life to fit this low paying job. (it is pennies over min wage) most of this company's workforce is outsourced so I suppose I fit into the 'you are lucky to have a job' category-it still makes me mad tho-getting damn tired of doing a good job only to get kicked in the teeth I also find that when I think about it - most ppl I know are either on gvt aid or living off a significant other and that makes my stomach turn. Not sure what to do here -not sure why I am posting this but I love ayn rand's philosophy and hope someday it will all pan out on "our" side pippi
  13. PERFECT casting - Daniel Day Lewis is a genius! (he could also easily play an ayn rand movie hero so well - i would love to see it!) Steven Spielberg tho... will this be aka "Lincoln Sucked"? I so hope not
  14. WHOA dude! omg is all I can say after seeing that...
  15. oh I know-I totally agree!
  16. Al gore is on apple's board of directors. http://www.apple.com/pr/bios/gore.html
  17. why do you post here? this is not taking responsibility for yourself . i am sorry i agreed on a former post of yours in this thread i didnt read it closely enough
  18. generalize much? and who exactly cares what you do or dont refuse to do? (btw how about a spell check?) and yes I wear longstockings when it is cold
  19. sorry this comment wasnt exactly right for this thread now that i read further. apologies
  20. "Demi....why you do this to me Demi...why!" the exorcist 1973.... give your mom a break !
