What do the Trumps have on Lindsay Graham that he's now being a booster for LARA Trump?

Were Apple workers demoralised by the company spending so long sitting on giant cash reserves doing nothing on them?

It doesn't feel like something the average worker thinks much about.

If anything, Tesla workers are more likely (presumably) to just see this as Elon being a genius again.

I think Pence and his ilk assumed that the pecking order of people doing the work of God was them, then the person they vouched for, and that if they withdrew the vouch then the faithful would come with them. Not so much.

I think Trump support has become the world's biggest and stupidest example of the sunk cost fallacy. Tens of millions of people who can't bring themselves to admit they spent 4 years worshipping a petulant charlatan no matter what.

That is WTF enough even when I only recognise two thirds of the people. I assume the rest wouldn't improve anything.

Sounds like Merc advertising to me.

If it could be 2002 it could be Porsche Cayenne.

This is one I could actually ask after. Will be interesting to know.

Sidney Blumenthal's piece on Mike Pence for the Guardian was great reading.

It must shit Pence so much that he spent 4 years years with his head knowingly up Trump's ass, putting all that effort into being his loyal servant, and ending up with not just no gratitude, not just no reward, but with "his people" becoming Trump's people and actively trying to murder him on Trump's say so.

The Republican Party has become astonishingly in thrall to all these mentally ill narcissists who believe they're divinely inspired and therefore all their shit is justified because God must will it. It's one thing to be a narcissist who believes God has chosen them but quite another for millions of other people to make that person the head of government or deputy head....

I have never worked anywhere in my life with a literal clocking in and clocking out and I still get paid. Indeed I don't recall ever seeing any place I've ever visited that had some kind of literal system to check the exact time you arrived and left. I thought that was for factories in old movies, and for Amazon warehouses which seem to be designed to use evil overlord tropes.

Sounds about right.

I mean, if you roll in elephant dung, wash those things, but otherwise they have a mystical property whereby they are never truly dirty, just have character.
