Most people do not want to work.
This is you projecting.  It is not reality.  Unemployed people want to work.  But if unemployment is higher than the the shitty job you had, why would you want to go back to it?
Because "Unemployed people want to work" remember what you just wrote?

Jesus H. Christ...

See, most people also view their jobs as "shit jobs," as you put it, because most people are fucked in the head and cannot put together two thoughts in a row that make sense, much like your example here.

Yes, because "want to work" means they'll take anything. /Sarcasm/... I want to eat pie.  Doesn't mean I'm going to eat any pie offered to me.  Like if someone bakes me a shit pie, or a Pumpkin Pie, I'm not eating it.

And if most people (in america) think their job is shitty, maybe the problem is the job culture, and not that people are lazy.

And note: your entire argument is based on the people who make more on unemployment than their barista or customer service jobs.  And again: that speaks volumes of the problem.

Tell me, would you go pick strawberries in the Texas summer for $3/hour or get $100/week from unemployment? 
Would you want to work at a cash register for 9 hours day with no benefits, getting yourself barely enough money to keep your stomach from growling if there was an alternative?

Hobbies and community service is not viewed as work by people who perform such things.

Playing the guitar =/= work for me.

I am not good enough to get paid doing it though.
My hobbies include computer stuff.
My job: computer stuff.
My hobbies are also my job.  Aka: work.

But its still work.  Whether you view it that way or not.

For most people work = slavery.
So what you're saying is that its only "real work" if you are over worked and paid so badly that you can barely survive, let alone live.  Good to know.  Guess you don't "work", do you?

Yep.  Tho 'living' is a relative term.  Like if you had enough to live in a 1 bedroom apartment in the middle of a gang infested part of the city and eat nothing but junk food... Is that enough?  Would you want more to save?  Maybe buy a house?  Start a family?  Go to school?

Tell me: what is 'enough to live' for you?
If you want those things, you should put in the work required to get those things.

You cannot blame some other entity for not doing the work required to get those things.
Great in theory but ya gotta spend money to make money.  School costs money.  Food costs money.  And if you want either, you need a job.  But only an unskilled job since you have no education or experience.  Which pays too low to really go to school.  Not without outside support.  And thats the issue at heart: if your life sucks before your an adult, its very hard to get it not to suck as an adult.

Answer me this: did you pay for school and rent of your own apartment all on your own?  No support from anyone?  Did you even go to school?  Did your parents help you in any way?  Friends or other family?  Or are you a self made man who got great success without any help? 


Oh and my favorite past time is playing video games and roleplaying.  I just don't have the time for it as much as I would want.

If the government is paying me enough to live, then work be damned.

People are fucking lazy whether you like the fact or not.
Don't project your own desires on humanity, dude.
Not my desires at all.

I know damn well the government is not inclined to take care of me.

People like you they will take care of.
Nope.  The government isn't taking care of me.  I make too much money.  Nor do I want them to care for me, I don't need it. (Tho the national health care is nice, even if I haven't used it yet)

Notice he says "erased". Not "cancelled". Because cancel culture is totally evil and purely a liberal thing, but having your political enemies erased is perfectly fine, nothing wrong with that, THEY'RE TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THINGS OKAY??

And speaking about erasing political enemies totally isn't imagery reminiscent of Stalin-era Communist purges. No not at all.

And lets not forget: helping those who pledge loyalty to The Fur- err... Trump.

Everyone wants to be pampered thinks they deserve a living wage is more accurate.
FTFY

Why would anyone with a kid go back to work to make a couple hundred bucks more a month, but then have to pay hundreds more for childcare, when they could stay at home, make more net income and spend time with their family? The fact that people are spinning this as 'lazy workers' instead of 'corporate greed and an unlivable minimum wage' is kind of amazing to watch
They wouldn't.

They would rather be pampered and taken care of by somebody else.
False.  Most people want to work.  Why do you think most retired people find hobbies or community service?  Boredom is a thing.

https://www.npr.org/2021/05/10/995518597/americans-will-lose-unemployment-benefits-if-they-turn-down-jobs-biden-says

So let this sink in:
The jobs report was lower than expected.  The reason being that employers are finding it hard to find workers. (So labor shortage)
The republicans are arguing that the stimulus bills are the cause of this; That people make more on unemployment than they do working.  Which is probably true for alot of jobs like waite staff and baristas.

So republicans are saying "These jobs suck and it's Biden's fault for giving you a better option!"
When a couple can make twice the median income by not working, why work?

Labor shortage is not an accurate descriptor.

How about :Shit pay keeps all but illegals from wanting to work?

Trying to follow Lackey (Action)'s train of thought is so difficult.

He seems to be in the line of "What is good for me, is good for everyone".  Now while I'm sure he thinks his neighbor having a nuke is safer than the US government, I'm gonna feel that its not as safe.  So why does Action's safety trump my own?  Why is it that the right to Life, Liberty, and the Persuit of Happiness extend to him, but not to me?  Why is it that HIS rights can't be infringed upon, but mine?  Sure.  Seems rather hypocritical.  His guns make me less safe. 
If he wants to defend himself: Ban all guns and give everyone a shortsword.  See?  Problem solved.  Also note: weapons are man made. FYI.  So is religion. So is the press.  So is prison.  Hell, so is law.

Also: The Constitution and law was heavily influenced by John Locke and the British Government, not so much Jeudo-Christian teachings.  Like Jeudo-Christians would NEVER have put freedom of religion in there.  It's "God or Death" for the True Christian nations. 

Also:
Amendment 7 probably needs some updating.  $20 was a lot back then.  Not so much now.

Good news, Tom!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-56989500

Wow...
Read the about page.  Literally everything there is either wrong or a lie.  Its amazing and frightning.

Like this gem:
Quote
We believe in the promise of the Declaration of Independence, that we are all made EQUAL by our Creator, and that must all be TREATED equal under the law.
Ignoring the fact that it says "Men" not "People" (ie. White males only), it doesn't say God made everyone equal, just that God gave them 3 rights: Life, Liberty, and the persuit of happiness.  Everyone was not equal under the declaration.  Far from it.

Or this...

Quote
We know that our rights do not come from government, they come from God, and no earthly force can ever take those rights away. That includes the right to religious liberty and the right to Keep and Bear Arms.
God literally damns you to hell if you don't worship him.  Soooo yeah, not so much religeous liberty.  Nor does God give the right to keep weapons.  The teachings of Jesus is literally "Don't fight back.  Don't kill.  Trust in God.". Last I checked, Smith & Wesson wasn't God.

His page is exactly as I expected:
His personal blog with likes but no comment section because why would he want to allow roboust debate?

Quote
We embrace free thought, we welcome robust debate, and we are not afraid to stand up to the oppressive dictates of political correctness.



So....
Bets on when Tom starts linking to there for "Facts"?

  ::)

Just as lame and self-serving as when Trump did it. I fucking cringed when I saw this letter in the mail.

I mean, I agree you need a letter to say "yes, we sent you a check.  You got it, right?  If not call this number."

But the IRS should send it.  Biden should have stayed far away.  If he wanted to speak optimistically, he can hold a press conference.  Ugh....

GOO being snowflakes once again:

https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-56952435

They say they are for small government and free markets but apparently it’s only when Trump’s feelings don’t get hurt by Twitter. It’s probably a violation of Corporations’ 1st Amendment rights too.

You can just feel the Trump rage in there.  And the whole "Oh but only social media only comapnies.  Disney would kill is if we applied it to them" is pretty obvious to that affect.  I'm also wondering how they'd enforce it. 

Not to mention it seems to act like being banned is a death sentence.  What the hell did people do before twitter and facebook?

Never heard of him. Are we just bring up allegations against different people who may be associated with a political party? I can do that.

He is notable enough to have a Wiki. We know you like Wikis, Tom, so...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Gaetz

I like how Tom doesn't even register the news article and just assumes we're randomly accusing people of things.

Man, Tom must feel so mislead now.


From NPR News
Newsmax Issues Retraction And Apology To Dominion Employee Over Election Stories https://www.npr.org/2021/04/30/992534968/newsmax-issues-retraction-and-apology-to-dominion-employee-over-election-stories?sc=18&f=992534968

I mean, when even the most far right news outlet admits they were wrong about the election fraud, you KNOW there was nothing.

I'm gonna echo everyone else.  $200 won't even cover a decent cpu. 

Your best bet is either prebuilt, or maybe find used parts on ebay/used pc on ebay.

Or a console.
How much is the switch?

Ladders! I guess Trump was hoping that they wouldn’t think of that. Or possibly he didn’t know that ladders were a thing

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/apr/24/donald-trump-border-wall-scaled-ladders

And only Trumpers are shocked.

You seem to think that I would turn a blind eye to any cheating on my side like you do.
OK, firstly, I don't have "a side". I didn't want Trump to continue being President but I have no affiliation with either party in the States.
Secondly, I'm not turning a blind eye to anything. You have spent the last 6 months alleging voter fraud and none of the evidence you have presented has stood up to the slightest bit of scrutiny.
He also hasn't presented any evidence of fraud in favor of Trump. (Ie. Trump supporters doing fraud)

what does this have to do with black people and marijuana?

I already linked you that he is only making this pledge to pander to black voters.
https://www.marijuanamoment.net/joe-biden-includes-marijuana-decriminalization-in-new-plan-for-black-america/

To reiterate, because you seem to have trouble following a thread ... I don't believe he will do it. I think he tells lots of lies. I think he just says whatever he thinks will score him points. He won't actually do anything. Like his broadband plan that also won't go anywhere. Its just pandering to rust belt voters.

I like how Thork is upset Biden "says whatever he thinks will score him points" but loved it when Trump did that on a daily basis and even held rallies just to hear people cheer his name.

Trump's still talking. Isn't it nice being able to just ignore him?

Less ignore more "It takes effort to find him talking" instead of just opening npr.org.
