My son just sent this to me, and OMG, it’s so good! 🤣🤣🤣 #craiyon
AI-generated images of Steve Irwin catching a baguette:
Here in the USA, we could face *deflation* - after all, if lumber prices are dropping 30% per month, why wouldn't you delay your project for another month and see if you can pick up another 30% discount?
If the economy only "works" when working people have to choose between food, fuel and health care, when bosses can reduce your pay and cut your hours because you can't get a job elsewhere, then the economy *doesn't work at all*.
Tax “frequent flyers” to the gills instead of rewarding them.
What’s more important?
- someone’s occasional flight to spend some quality time with their loved ones when they manage to save enough for it, or
- the one-day business trip because some deal is more likely to happen if they see you flew someone to shake a hand and shout a drink.
The second one is a waste of everyone’s climate, resources and right to no noise. It should be taxed more than the first.
Also, tax kerosene properly.
In seriousness, I think this is actually an underappreciated element of anti-fascism.
A core element of fascist ideology is the idea that there was once a perfect, ideal past, that we through our degeneracy let slip away. The fascist promises to bring us back to it by being a stern ruler who will punish us for our sins.
So it's important to help people understand that there was NEVER a perfect, ideal past. There was just people and their various screw-ups. And people now are fundamentally the same as people then. The clothes change, the rituals change, but people are people.
Gov. contracts should be awarded via game shows. CEOs compete answering questions about how many lives they are willing to sacrifice to make their company successful. Round 2, give them a trolley prob scenario and finally the public votes. Lie to us & we will know. We have seen what monopolies will do for profit.
You get annoyed by having to enter your #Mastodon handle each time you want to follow/interact with someone on a "foreign" page?
I got that too, but I've made a little add-on to solve this "problem". 😃
It automatically "redirects" you to your own instance.
This is so wrong, I love it!
