This country is fucking hilarious.
Pause student debt for a year, but only for terrorist attack survivors.
I think it's apt that Bezos announces that he's going to visit space the same day Earth carbon levels are shown to be this bad. The billionaires are going to ruin the Earth, extract as much wealth as possible, and then leave most of humanity behind in the unlivable hellhole.
Amazon management has quotas to fire a certain percentage of employees each year and they hire people with the intent of firing them to keep up with quotas
A formal complaint against satire from the people who brought you hits like “learn to take a joke,” “facts don't care about your feelings,” “what about diversity of ideas,” and “snowflakes.”
Is Glenn Greenwald the New Master of Right-Wing Media?
“Glenn and I have always disagreed on some things, but at least he used to have consistent principles and respect for basic facts,” Lee told The Daily Beast. “It’s disappointing and tragic that he’s gone so far off the deep end, from what seemed to be an honest and fearless journalist into a conspiracy-peddling pundit that spends all his time misleading people.”
Texas valedictorian goes viral after giving unapproved speech blasting state's anti-abortion bill https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/556609-texas-valedictorian-goes-viral-after-giving-unapproved-speech-blasting
Using the CDC Wonder database, influenza and pneumonia was the 7th leading cause of death in children age 14 and under from 1999-2019. A typical flu season has nearly 200 pediatric deaths.
In the 2020-2021 season there was 1 pediatric flu death.
Mitigations measures for COVID-19 worked to crush a respiratory viral disease that is a leading cause of death in children- and COVID-19 killed literally hundreds as many children as that disease did over that same interval.
I am really quite livid and exhausted from the stalwart minimization of the importance of COVID-19 as a public health problem in pediatrics. It's a really dishonest, inconsiderate, and frankly at its core callous position to take.
When people say "only a few hundred died" I have to wonder: do you not understand that children aren't supposed to die?
I realize that sounds like a silly question but I have to ask it because the qualifier "only" does not belong with "few hundred children died."
