I have often wondered if Mr. Conservative/Libertarian turns down raises his company offers to *him.* Because I’ve only ever heard this argument applied to low-wage workers. Apparently, when you increase executive salaries and bonuses, that money comes out of a magical portal somewhere, so prices are unaffected. And no one ever tries to tell middle-class knowledge workers that getting a raise would only leave them worse off in the long run. It’s only ever the working poor. I guess they get paid with a different, more sinister kind of money.

Guys can we get this to 1500? 


The only time I felt comfortable going to school was when I was in college. Even though the classes were harder and longer, I had more down time and more time to do my work. I made my own schedule so I was able to wake up later. I could take naps between classes. That’s what high school should be like. Instead, we have the same 45 minute classes every day from 7:30-3:00, with no real break in between. And we got penalized for being late to class, when we only had 4 minutes to transition, at a school with over 3,000 students, who are all switching classes at the same time, in the same narrow hallways. The entire length of the school was probably the size of an average city block. Think about walking through Times Square, you know the part where everyone’s taking their picture with wax Samuel L. Jackson outside of Madame Tussaud’s, and you’re like that wax Samuel L. Jackson has been out there for six years, and he will surely be there the next time you come to New York, and actual Samuel L. Jackson is across the street right now, so why must you stop in the middle of the sidewalk to take a picture with wax Samuel L. Jackson??? And multiply that by ten. That’s what it was like walking through those halls. The whole operation made no sense, and nobody realizes it until they experience something better.
