I feel like young workers nowadays believe jobs are fun places where all their fun friends are. Were Gen-Xers the last generation to know that Management is the Enemy and Jobs are Jobs and not Summer Camp? Doesn't anyone know it's all about "embrace the suck?" youtube.com/watch?v=TSQWd4LQnb

Only 10% of Americans want Helicopter Governance. The 10% with helicopter parents. Even though everyone you know had helicopter parents, it's because you're in that 10% who wants a government to keep them safe. 90% don't want a Disinformation Governance Board.

I would love to live in a less racist America. Growing up in Hawaii was a gift this way for me.

Out of whole cloth: entirely from fiction or the imagination, or through complete fabrication; not based on reality at all. A reference to tailors who would falsely advertise garments being made "out of whole cloth," when, in reality, they were pieced together from different cuts.

Cut from whole cloth: entirely fictional or utterly false; completely fabricated and not based on reality at all. A reference to tailors who would falsely advertise garments being made "out of whole cloth," when, in reality, they were pieced together from different cuts.

Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand.

War propaganda 101: only the enemy ever rapes and pillages.

The firearm paradox: the more dangerous or lawless the streets are perceived, the more likely a person will resort to weapons for defense.
