I am very typical earthling. I like earth food and earth drink and earth sports and earth media. Im all about earth things because I am so typical and earthling. so typical as to be very boring and not worth investigating or looking into because I am definately from earth.

we really need a maximum compensation like ben and jerries had. 10x lowest compensated worker at the company.

im willing to go with 100 but honestly its sorta sad to say one person is worth more than 100 of another.

dup. dup. dup. seriously I hate articles like this. Obviously anyone who thinks we are currently in a recession does not understand the word recession. All the same the economy for regular people has not been good in forever and especially since 2k but that is not going to change unless we get a hellubalot more sustainable. My satan companies still modify models purely to make old attachments incompatible still.

I would not say ohio is like texas or florida. Im actually surprised by a lot of the midwest going red lately.

I say more why blame the states rather than the courts. courts already forced a state to keep a canidate on the ballot this year so why not now? That being said I would actually love to see him win as a write in. I know that will not happen but it would be such a bald face loss for trump it would be awesome.

im pretty sure it made it worse for 100% just not catastrophically worse for the 35% not included. EDITED - keeping my original comment for posterity but someone else had a better comment and really there are some who made more than inflation. Not a whole lot but some.

HubertManne ,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

good point. I made a commnet about it effecting everyone but there likely is the segment whos income actually has been outpacing inflation for the last 3 years.

As an adult I hate gifts in general. If I wanted something I would have gotten it and if its something I could not get it would usually be so expensive as to be quite embarrassing. Rarely someone comes across a great deal on something I would want or is something that I would want that is not to expensive but not commonly available but then such opportunities are not just rare but almost never happen close enough to a gift giving occasion (as we do such things in society). As such I almost never want them and do not like to give them except when the rare opportunity arises and then out of the blue. This tends to fluster the recipient who then seeks to get something inane for me.

Yes I sorta get that. I remember when optical mice dropped in price I bought one for basically everyone K new.

Cosponsored by Chief Deputy Whip Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA) and U.S. Representative Max Miller (R-OH). Don't vote for genocidin biden as the democrats are just as bad as the replublicans and hes not doing enough for palestine etc etc. will do so much better under some imaginary president.

I mean im excited its not 200 more trump picks rather than 200 picks that might agree with trump picks based on a belief in how the picks were made.

I think selection matters a lot. I totally don't mind fast tracking the next ruth bader ginsburg.

Majority of Americans wrongly believe US is in recession – and most blame Biden ( www.theguardian.com )

Nearly three in five Americans wrongly believe the US is in an economic recession, and the majority blame the Biden administration, according to a Harris poll conducted exclusively for the Guardian. The survey found persistent pessimism about the economy as election day draws closer....

We are obviously not currently in a recession but the economy is not great for regular folks, however it has not been since like the 90's.

americas been doing that since 9/11 and every time there is something else like katrina they push the advertising a bit but its usually in the corner of some dusty website and hard to say if anyone does it. I don't but we buy enough stuff that we could get buy for months I think if we get less picky about what we eat. we usually have a certain amount of rice and lentils and canned goods laying around. water is tough as ugh. those plastic bottles.

reagan, bush jr., trump. I wish that party could not win and election so that we could have the democrats as the conservative party and start making real progress on shifting left rather than their continual wins moving us right.

if done right thin is fine, but thick is better. We have a place where double is the standard burger and its made to order but fast because you can cook them fast. That being said the place with the thick jucy burgers has a line out the door constantly while they are open.

yeah I would say a bigger deal is we could stop our emissions but if we still destroy our ecology its not going to matter much.

I swear over the weekend i heard something about them buying. Apparently they have a target cost that they try to keep it to or at least try to prevent sudden changes.

least running, most canceled. Ok I guess I like this scuba one I had. Honestly the whole change twice and shower in the middle of the school day is sorta a pain.

I remember ribbing an english friend about brexit just before trump got elected. then I was all like, yeah but he will be gone in a few years. Now I am here with a decade later being just a few years away and looking down the barrel of him having taken one of the two parties that win elections over here.

Appreciate the heck out of everything as we are not going in a good direction. Every walk. Every tree. Every breath of fresh air I take in and just enjoy. Heck I watch old stuff just because so much stuff is gated now and even if it wasn't I mostly don't like it. Enjoy good fresh foods. Enjoy having shelter and a comfortable climate. Enjoy your loved ones be they human, animal, or plant. Just appreciate what is good in life now for as long as you can.

thanks for the written article as I don't like videos for information (great for entertainment purposes and that includes the occasional edutainment but I have to be in the mood for it). The written article im a bit unsure of though. It sounds like its talking about a direct crash into the sun. technically you would be looking at just making an orbit that would degrade and not hit anything else along the way. So that it would eventually crash into the sun. That being said I don't think we should treat the sun as a garbage disposal and all the dangers about launch are way valid.

now? its been discussed as possible for awhile. now probable or practical. nope. lots of energy and bad effects of energy.

Totally agree. This is not exactly a good example in impropriety but I don't see why holding office should not restrict holders investments to broad total market index funds and bond funds.

HubertManne ,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

certainly. even lower. Some people can be vigorous in their seventies but they are not the majority, 50's many go down. That is one problem with raising the retirement age in general. There is only a subset that can keep working as age goes up.

ironic given the idea behind increased interest rates is to encourage saving.

HubertManne ,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

especially when things like food are the things going up. Just noticed this weekend that four things of tortillas was the same price as pair of frying pans.

HubertManne ,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

way I always heard it is to fight inflation they increase interest which is supposed to encourage people to save the money rather than spend it thus lowering inflationary pressures in addition to interest capturing dollars that become unavailable for purchasing.

Funny. I call myselft a centerist and don't do that. Progressive/leftists don't consider me progressive leftist because Im not in lockstep with everything the particular leftist/progressive believes in and they are right. Im left of center which means im firmly a democrat as republicans are no were near center at all. If someone is saying both sides I don't think they are anywhere near to center. Its like saying both sides with the ukraine/russia thing.

HubertManne ,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

in real terms im left of center so in american terms im super left and in republican terms im a no good communist .what I want is regulation, a progressive tax structure, and decent social programs.

HubertManne ,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

when the extremes respond to you as being aweful what else can you be. I support biden and democrats because I have lived through republican in power and I would rather make small progress than go backwards. Again globally im left of center I would says.

HubertManne ,
@HubertManne@kbin.social avatar

to you, but others feel different and again globally it really is. Yes a left of the center overall but close to the center. In the us im a crazy leftist but we are way skewed right at least as far as who gets elected. So if I was in congress then yes I would be akin to bernie but plop him and me in most parlements and we would be close to center. for now anyway as it feels like the rest of the world is following the us lead in leaning right overall.

Im more a stan ridgeway fan than wall of voodoo. I remember picking up a cassette way back and was very disapointed and did not understand what happened. Its only decades later that I found out. Its like tull and ian anderson for me even though the band has never not had him hes pretty much the influence I like. ironically im not wild about his solo stuff. I find he really needs some good artists to keep him grounded. Stan on the other hand, I like his solo stuff.
