Fox News is reporting that AT&T is giving out $1000 bonuses to employees all thanks to Trumps new tax bill. Trump himself, naturally had to personally take credit for this, as well.

http://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/2017/12/20/at-t-to-give-employees-1000-bonuses-after-trump-signs-tax-bill.html

So I guess all the Trumpfans should be expecting their Trump Bonuses in the near future. They should all definitely be asking their bosses about it regularly to make sure they don't forget, or anything.

Didn't AT&T just lay off a bunch of people too?

Yeah, and their "Trump Bonuses" had already been approved through negotiations with the union. That didn't stop AT&T, Trump, and Fox News from giving all the credit to Trump and the new tax bill. I'd just like to see Trumpfan expectations be as high as possible for some trickle down action. I know they have a remarkable talent for self-delusion, and will probably "see" some incredible windfall due to their herculean Trumpian efforts no matter what happens but at least the higher their expectations, the more entertaining their mental acrobatics will be.

Also, AT&T needs the Trump administration to approve their merger with Time-Warner, which is presumably their motive in all this rectal smoke-blowing with the idiot.

I didn't know that, but I'm not surprised.
He can add it to his list of "accomplishments" that other people actually did, or that never even happened.

Techmology and Scientism / Re: Windows 10

I heard the Win10 updates can kill Classic Shell. And Classic Shell won't be making any new versions with fixes for that.

Which really puts the lie to the people who claim that disabling updates may harm your computer.

I'll roll those dice given that leaving updates on will definitely harm my computer.

(BTW, is there any way to delete the update service entirely?)

I don't think it's even a dice roll.
I turned updates completely off when I had Windows 8, for several years. People were telling me it was a bad idea, but nothing happened.
What finally made me have to buy a new laptop was a typical HP cheap plastic issue: the plastic under the display hinge developed a crack, and eventually broke away. And it took some things on the circuit board with it.

PoFP - thanks. I probably won't be techy enough to pull it off, but in my case it's OK. Because all my "updates" do is make me click "Hide" on an error message screen.

So, I have some kind of error going on - Windows TRIES to update, and I get an error message with some kind of number string that I'm supposed to contact Windows with.
So far, I haven't.

Not as good as giving them a show to remember, but it's good when you can keep them from fucking your shit up, even a little bit.

I hope they strangle on it.

Maybe it could happen. Maybe the hookers they hire kick ball gags down their throats.

A girl can dream, can't she?

My goodness.  I appear to be socially felicitous with a person who happens to be flexible with certain aspects of the social contract.

But they were more than generous to Sharon. I don't see a problem.  :lulz:

This is why I couldn't be a physician or a psychologist.  There are certain people I cannot stand, and I would want to hurt them instead of helping them.

 :lol: This is also why I will never be a clinician. Even though compassion is a trait I am actively trying to cultivate more of in myself, I don't know that I could ever get to the point where people with certain disorders don't trigger revulsion and contempt.

On the other hand, I know a very good clinician who simply refuses to work with those clients.

Still, I don't think I'm cut out to be a clinician.

I do possess a degree of compassion. But sometimes compassion means shitting on certain people.
Clinicians probably don't get that.  :lol:

Well, well, La Marque actually made the news. Not for anything worth a shit, quite the opposite, really.

Take note of that woman's photo. The classic "Texas face".

6.  Because my dick has an elbow.  Nuff said.

I'm going to be puzzling over what brought on that reply all day now.

THANKS A LOT, OBAMA.

What makes it somehow worse is that he's a terrible singer.

Although now I want to lay the audio over that Lil' John video.

Even for the period it's bad, but I get the idea that it's entirely satire. Not that we should condone the actions of our past, but it's an unfortunate result of the early 20th Century.

and do it. Just remember that it has a digital copyright and you can't post it anywhere when you're done. I swear Facebook sent me a death threat.

It's not satire... there was a large and thriving racist movement at the time and they put out a lot of records. It's a recognized genre that has collectors. I know a collector and historian of white supremacist propaganda and culture.

Yeah, the youtube sidebar alone is full of similar shit.

What if they gave a war revolt and nobody came? http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/guarantee-10-million-operation-american-spring-protesters-just-under-10-million

The source is admittedly biased, but it says their count was just over 100 people.  :lulz:
