    The superficial theatrical production happening now grates me. All the drama, no deep thinking. And the a55hats with the memes about people not caring now make me want to puke. Almost all of them on my feed are from younger white men who weren't born when it happened but are happy to baa-aaa like a sheep in outrage. GAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! No use trying to hold them accountable. I grieve privately. Not on display for effect
    I saw someone on Twitter who posted what the NYT did 20 years after Pearl Harbor. It was two short stories that didn't even make the front page I don't believe.

      While we are on that tangent- one thing that is always missed in this whole thing is the question- "how did people get so mad at the US to attack them?"

      We didn't support Afghanistan, we fought the Russians. If we supported the country, we would have helped out after the Soviets left. Just like how we don't support the middle east, unless they are the small group that lets our companies have their oil- letting most people suffer. And just like we've pretty much destroyed South and Central American democracies due to greed of companies who want control- whenever there was any sniff of human rights being part of a government, we went in and messed it up in the name of "red fear". (Banana Republics, and sugar companies, let alone how we get cheap labor from Mexico, only to bash it just to keep costs low)

      Nobody wants to accept the things our country has done that is the exact opposite of what we pretend we are for. Like freedom and liberty.

        Also, up is down and water is dry.
        He may even be right, and I'm not sure we should care anymore. If your only argument is "nuh uh!" then I'm not interested in any kind of discussion on the matter. Enjoy life, excluded by society.

        • Huge Q-Anon supporter in Chicagoland succumbs to COVID. Is hailed as a martyr by fellow Q-Anon followers. Followers who are harassing the hospital where she died at for not giving her Ivermectin.

          This is the same woman who camped out regularly on a pedestrian bridge over I-90 (Kennedy Expressway) on the northwest corner of the City of Chicago. She would hang homemade banners from the bridge during the afternoon rush hour.


          Side note, she was a Bernie supporter in 2016 before going full Trump/Q these last few years.

            How does one become a martyr for dying of something they think is fake?

            Just because they didn't give her pretend drugs?

            It's interesting how they are doubling down even though more and more people are dying. And they are their own people.

              • And even though it was a covid related death, it won't be counted as one.

                Not that it matters anymore- if people are dying due to lack of care, there's really no point in worrying about numbers.

                  • 25% of positive covid cases in Minnesota last week were breakthrough cases (so about 3000 cases). That is exactly what I was expecting to happen about a month ago.

                      This is becoming a grim example of When Prophesy Fails.

                      tldr: When a cult's prophesy fails, they don't wise up. They double down and become more and more irrational in defending their adherence to it. It's like a psychological form of the sunk cost fallacy. These people will kill themselves and their loved ones in order to shirk facing their having been swindled.

                      Other studies have shown conservatives are particularly vulnerable to this effect since their personalities are conditioned by closed-mindedness, fear and faith rather than open-mindedness, curiosity and reason. We are seeing a subculture kill themselves to avoid facing that they were duped by their con artist "leaders" in the GOP and rightwing media. They are so incapable of assuming adult responsibilities that they would rather die.

                      This would be sad, except their selfishness has killed hundreds of thousands. So...

                      • So I work at NYS DOL, and a question was posed to me today. If you get fired for refusing the vaccine, do you still get UI. They want their cake and eat it to, even though it clearly says “if you get fired, <b> through no fault of your own</b>…

                          It depends on the company and state. Some have specifically noted that if you refuse the corporate rules that you are resigning for refusal to adhere to company policies. Others are "firing with cause" for the same reason and have threatened to challenge the application for UI. Others are firing people and not challenging.
