they are more or less saying "WE'RE DOING EVIL THINGS AND WE KNOW IT"

Exhibit A:

Things I said at work today:

"We do not hold chlorine tablets in our teeth while we work.  Why do I even have to say this?"

"There are no rats in the admin building.  We killed them all.  You have ghost rats."

"I don't worry about budgets, which is why my numbers are in the black.  You do everything on the cheap, which means you have to do it twice, which is why it's only June and you have no money.  So no, you can't have any of my money, because you obviously can't be trusted to spend it fast enough.  Now get out of my office, you penurious little mendicant, you're lowering my property values."

"No, boss, I won't be reasonable about this.  He's far too fiscally-responsible for me to feel charitable.  Now, if he'd blown his budget on new ranges or fryers or maybe some proper Goddamn air conditioning for his kitchen staff, I'd be willing to give up some of my capital expenditures budget, but he didn't...So he can just go ask Baby Jesus for more money.  Or the board.  He's probably better off with Jesus, because the board is pissed off just on account of the weather."

"The world of accounting is terrible and mysterious, Kevin, and it sometimes makes people cry."

This could be an interesting turning point.  This site (and forum) is no stranger to pointing out when a sitting official does something stupid, or when a governing body gets it wrong.

The Obama administration was criticized on this site, and by major media, about their immigration policies, drone strikes, prosecution of whistleblowers, and more.

Oddly Unsurprisingly, people looking to defend Trump forget this. 

And now, the Trump people have shifted their focus somewhat; rather than spend their time rolling back Obama-era regulations, they're jacking up old policies that restrict freedoms, spiking them with additional vitriol and xenophobia, and then saying, "but Your God Obama did the same thing."

It's incredibly tiresome to remind all of them that there was plenty of criticism about those measures, and regardless, immorality by one administration does not make it moral for the next one.

What's REALLY awesome is that they are more or less saying "WE'RE DOING EVIL THINGS AND WE KNOW IT" which is why they offer the justification of "THE LAST GUY DID IT", even if - especially if - it's a complete crock.

 :horrormirth: This is what happens when you have a President who gets his info from FOX and Friends and random internet Nazis who tweet at him, instead of the 19 intelligence agencies (with a combined budget in excess of $50 billion) who report to him daily, because the Daily Presidential brief is "boring"

Or it could just be the Chinese food yesterday.

I could see late-evening Chinese giving you a high result, but not two different results.

Also, blood sugar does most of it's horrible damage while you're sleeping, because you are doing nothing to burn it up...And unlike normal primates, our systems don't just handle it.

So it's worth mentioning that I rarely eat after 7:30 PM.  125 isn't terrible for daytime, but it's lousy for sleeping hours.

Honestly, what the fuck, Cain.


Feels like you have to bring up a second complaint to HR... about how HR is treating you.

Which would be the second complaint of that kind, since the first complaint was, essentially a) you're making me work alongside the person who broke into my flat, b) and you took 5 months to make a decision on that.

Apparently she's got to do more "investigating", so either HR really fucked up somewhere, management really fucked up somewhere, or this whole incident is about to get turned around on me (in which case, I'm already packed to move, and I go nuclear on them).
