BIG SHOUT-OUT to Winston’s Mom who did links for me last week when I had The Funk.
GET BACK TO WORK, SLACKERS: Elon Musk orders Tesla employees back to the office. tells employees who don’t like it to “pretend to work somewhere else.” I have mixed feelings about this. It’s his company, his rules. The production line workers who create the products never had a work-from-home option. So much office time is wasted by idiot co-workers. Yet, there is something to be said about team building that you just can’t do over a zoom. MEANWHILE, lazy state employees in Virginia, and their Democrat legislative patrons, whine about having to return to work. Maryland and DC employees have been back in the office since Summer of 2021.
HAPPY INTERNATIONAL SEX WORKERS DAY (FOR REALS, YO): In a delicious twist of irony, Michael Avenatti was today sentenced to four years in prison for stealing money from sex worker Stormy Daniels.
REMEMBER WHEN THE “GUN CONTROL” LOBBY USED TO TELL US THEY WEREN’T COMING FOR OUR GUNS? Well, they are, indeed, coming for our guns.
VIGORIDE SPACE TUG PROBLEMS: No, a Vigoride (love the name) space tug is not a sex toy, it’s an actual spacecraft.
NEWS YOU CAN USE: Possums (Didelphis virginiana) are not the great eaters of ticks they were once thought to be, proving yet again that the science is not always “settled.” Your linkster has been guilty of promulgating this pro-possum propaganda. Mea culpa.
TAYLOR LORENZ TWEETS: “Hundreds” of domestic violence survivors have already retracted victim statements & pulled out from court cases as a result of watching the trial. She knows this how, exactly? Did everyone’s lawyer call her? Always be suspicious when a journo (or anyone else) uses vague words like “hundreds” instead of actual numbers.
GIVE US YOUR HUNGRY, YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR; WE’LL PISS ON ‘EM: The heart-wrenching, infuriating story of a Yemeni refugee family in San Francisco, that beacon of tolerance and prorgressivism. Note that the mayor tried to exclude press from the “public” meeting about this. Headline stolen from here (bonus music link).
