Another opportunity lost

It hit me today just how terrible the last three years have been for me. I came into work earlier and my company was offering a voluntary separation deal, full pay, full benefits, job placement help, for three to six months. It would be perfect for me. But I haven’t been here quite long enough …

Bank still refusing to pay woman for stolen items

ohiobanktheft

It looks like First National Bank of Wellston of Ohio has a bigger problem than they thought: Katie Barnett, the lady they ripped off and are refusing to pay full value to, is photogenic and not a minority. Which means even local teatards might sympathize. The President of the bank is a fellow named Eric …

Bank refuses to compensate victim of horrendous mistake

We finally got some much needed rain here in Central Texas last night. Hopefully more will follow today. The storm that came through knocked out my cable for hours, but now it’s back up. And having signed in, I find the era of corporate malfeasance continues unabated. Check this gem out:

ABC News/WaPo abortion poll

ABC_WaPo_abortion_poll_7_13

The con played on social conservatives is to make it look like conservative politicians are fighting tooth and nail to outlaw abortion and a bunch of other reproductive freedoms, without actually doing anything about it. Because outlawing it would be hugely unpopular and, more importantly to the scam, take it off the table as an …

Weiner’s weiner strikes again

Yes, I know it’s not fair, democrats don’t run around being all high and mighty decreeing who can put their divine what in a gutter sinner’s where. Nevertheless, I said this with Clinton and I’ll say it with Anthony Wiener, please, fucking stop. If Clinton had been able to keep little willie in his pants, …

Generational economic mobility in easy to read map form

blog_social_mobility_regional

I’m not going to be the first one to say this — you’d have to be blind not to notice it. Dixie is damn near a third-world hell-hole within our borders. We can argue about which fucked up idea caused most of it, and it’s seems fair to infer no one policy could fail quite …

GOP head assures fundamentalists his party not serious about being tolerant

The Republican Party has a terrible problem, too many people think they’re a bunch of old creepy white guys who only care about a few creepy old, rich religious fanatics! Some conservatives have even been running around saying they might be more inclusive to immigrants or gays and lesbians, perish the though!┬áSo party chairman Reince …

An economic experiment

It’s no secret around these parts that I’m looking for a real-life job with better pay and more advancement opportunity. I just saw exactly such a job with a great company, the physical site is very close by — I could almost walk to it. The qualifications include familiarity with online commerce, strong customer service …

A message in the mud

ds

  Our local lake is still — barely — capable of supporting wakeboard boats, something I tested out yesterday in the photo above. It won’t be much longer, Lake Travis will simply dry up into Baked Mud Canyon if we don’t get a veritable deluge of rain in the next few months. But if present …
