Cats as socialists? I respectfully disagree as there is nothing “social” about cats.

Happy Goonyun Glorification Day, Wheelizens!

Noice iconic Kommie Kitteh images, Mac!

=====================

Already deeply resentful of the need to respond to the CA Contractors State Licensing Board’s Potemkin investigation on the morrow. Not to mention the dozens of hours I’ve already put in to deal with this carp (for which I’m unlikely to evar receive compensation).

=====================

Hope all o’ ya’ll have a lurvely day.

Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Happy Well, at least we get a day off Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Mac, and Fatwa!

Been trying to get some things done outside, before it gets too hot.

Fatwa -- I’m sorry you’re still having to deal with that nonsense. I hope it all comes out right in the end.

Mac -- excellent job!

Good morning, Fatwa, Mac, and Paddy -- a day off is a blessing.

An interesting look back at the labor unions and early 20th century America courtesy of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America -- the union that my grandfather helped organize. Trigger warning: rampant white privilege presented.

My grandfather died when I was five years old and I only have a few memories of him. I often wonder what he would think of unions today and the changes to organized labor, becoming as corrupt if not more so -- in my opinion -- as the corporations that they were fighting against.

You are exactly right, Mac, about us outsourcing our child labor and terrible working conditions to other companies so that we can turn a blind eye to it when we buy cheap products and pretend it doesn’t exist. Out of sight, out of mind.

The hole or holes would allow a blind person to sign the envelope in the proper location, but the claim that this allows them to “vote on their own” is patently false. The ballot is not in braille so there is no way a blind person could vote without assistance. Adding in the Utah tale of binding lots of ballots together through the holes with zip ties also makes no sense. The holes would have to go through the ballots and both sides of the envelopes, not just one side.

Good points.I should have said the “official” explanation.

I started ripping my vinyl to digital again -- 240 albums to go and then I can start on the cassettes. Amazing how well they’ve held up. The ones I went through today were all from the 70’s -- bought new. So more than 40 years old and not sounding too bad.

Does vinyl sound better? I can’t tell after the abuse my ears have gone through over 60 years,but there is something about holding an actual album and reading the liner notes.

There is just something special about holding that album, admiring the artwork, reading the liner notes, etc. that just can’t be replicated by other formats.
