I've been surprised how Laura has been all over the media for a few weeks.

It was a really interesting video.

That guy is very cool.

I'm sure he will, it helps keep his name out there.

I don't' think it will matter beyond giving the other two parties a possible person to blame for loosing when he peels off about 1% of the vote.

All the delivery apps call me and try to get me to join up about twice a year.

I fuck with em and tell them I'm a bondage cafe and that I can't uber eats a spanking of a dry handy.

Or I tell them that they've been told not to call me and that I'd rather die than play their game and they should go fuck themselves.

They seem more surprised at me not wanting their valuable service than the bondage cafe thing. "I mean, why? I just want to know why you don't want us to deliver for you? I don't get it." None of the sales shit they brought at the start, just disbelief. Uber Eats is reality and anything that isn't appifyed is not viable in their world view. Little do they know that not Uber Eating is just the tip of the iceberg of me being a fucked up business man who does nothing that he's supposed to and getting along just fine.

Uber Eats can go fuck itself for all eternity. I used a food app once when I was at a hotel that had nothing but fast food around it, it was fine but fuck em, I don't need one more hand in my pocket as a producer or a consumer.

I enjoy this guys videos and he's taught me a few things. I'll watch this one when I get the time.

Lol, right.

It's funny to read about this from an outside perspective.

No one here really gives a shit about the preacher guy and he isn't regarded as a motivating force in the violence that occurred around the event.

The security team was a who's who of the usual violent rightwing provocateur's. Providing "security" is their new game. The Left knows a lot about them, they've been fighting each other for a few years.

I'm sure you love the dusting of Jesus bullshit over the whole violent right wing, it's a sideshow but it's your kind of titillation.

cgod  ·  33 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: How to confront someone for potato theft?

I'm very straight forward about these kinds of things, it usually seems to work.

I'd go with, "We know you've engaged in some petty theft, we aren't debating your guilt, we know that you have taken certain things from us. Stop taking thing or there will be consequences." If they wanted to engage in further discussion I would tell the person they have to leave now but they will be welcome back tomorrow. If they want to debate, tell them they have to leave.

Personally I'd get rid of a petty thief that engages in strange social behavior, it probably won't end well.

Here are two sahel songs that I've kept coming back to for years.

Yea, I've been aware of him for a good while but I'm just not digging it.

I don't know why but I found it pretty boring after a bit.

They don't mention how a factory job expects you to work 9-5 five days in a row and if you can't you won't be hired. Service jobs usually offer a greater ability to decided when and how much you will work.

Thanks for posting, this wasn't on my radar.

I'm sure the CIA is working on how to fuck Castillo's tenure up, I hope the best for him.

This lady walks around in all black with a black blanket put over her head, covered in dirt and soot. It's like some kind of comic arson villain.

I've never felt like I had less ability to make useful change or that my actions were more futile than I do now a days. I think part of this is age and realism.

There was a lady near my house who was in the throes of a full blow psychotic episode today. Covered in scabs, near insensible, no shoes, dirty tanned as brown as mahogany. I talked to her for a minute to try and find out what size shoes she wore and came back with water (it's in the 90's) a snack and a pair of shoes. She needed all three of those things but I have no idea if she ever put the shoes on. I was a distraction to her so I went home.

She needed all three of those things but none of those three things were what she really needed. I can't call the fucking cops lest they beat her ass in an effort to protect her. There is a new mental health response team but it only operates in one of the 95 neighborhoods in the city. I couldn't give her what she needs but godamn she was in need.

The homeless explosion is overwhelming. Twice people have tried to break into my home while I'm home now, once into my sister in laws van which is in my driveway and which she is living in. Crazy Soot Bitch tired to burn my shop down. There is trash everywhere, there is misery everywhere.

If things were a little different I'd get the fuck out of here but they aren't and I can't, oh well.

I've been thinking about what I'm going to do next in life. I always thought that I would be good at sitting with dying people for Hospice but maybe I need to find a way to work with the mentally ill or homeless. I'm pretty tired of not doing much of anything besides giving money, a meal, a cup of coffee or a pair of shoes. Most the people I know who work with the homeless or mentally ill seem worn out by the system and lack any real hope that things are going to get better any time soon, I don't know if that's something I want for myself.

Maybe I should just pursue my dream of being a ditch digger.

An arsonist tried to light my shop on fire.

She managed to get a bigger plastic drain pipe lit, which burned into the wall and leaked plastic smoke into one of the bathrooms where it was mostly contained. The fire in the wall went out on it's own.

There are many transient arsonist in the area is something I've learned from the arson inspector and reading the paper.

This is but a drop in the ocean of being a business owner this year.
