    Don’t know why he’d tell ya in the summer. Gives you a chance to shop around. But in case you haven’t noticed, everything costs more now. Gas and trucks, and truck parts, tires, employees, etc etc

    Shit that annoys you

    Fucking Marketplace.

    It’s bad enough it’s a Facebook property, but using it is such a pain in the ass.

    Scroll past something and want to find it again? Too bad! We updated your entire feed because you clicked on some other thing.

    Searching for big unshippable things like a stove or lawnmower or truck wheels? We’re going to include mostly listings that are across the country! Oh and you can’t just set your default to be local only, we’ll update it to shipping+local EVERY FUCKING TIME.

    FB doesn’t want you to sell things, they want to sell ads for you to sell things which is why it sucks so bad. It’s a profit center not a feature

    this has saved me many times. maybe my luggage won’t make it, but nbd.
    I’m guessing it also has to do with us having no connecting flights in Jackson so it’s not impacting more flights to wait a bit.
    They did this all time when I lived and traveled out of Bozeman for work. It helped when it was usually the last Delta flight in for the night.

    Corporate re-orgs. I've seen this happen sooooo many times at work - my job never changes, just the people not fixing any problems are different.

    Why does Critical Race Theory freak people out? Does looking at racism through a different viewpoint really scare you? Racism has been a part of our nations history wether you like it or not learning about it shouldn’t be banned like some people have tried

    Two calls so far today from callers in a thick accent that I can only guess as South Asian. It's regarding 'open enrollment'. JFC.

    It took me 13 separate calls to get someone to cancel two Viasat internet accounts. The Final Boss didn’t understand what I was trying to accomplish, and only managed to cancel one (I think ), but after wasting my morning, I’ll take it.

    Except that is not exactly what CRT is.

    Also, racism is prevalent all over the world and is not just whites against people of color. I've worked in manufacturing for years with very diverse work forces. People of all races hate other races, not all of course, but they dislike them because they are different races. It's the human race, not just whites in America. Evil shit happened throughout history and still happens today, but damned if I am apologizing for what some assholes did 200 years ago or today.

    Could be. If so I have no problem owning up to it. I guess a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

    Edited: I see what CRT is supposed to be and don't have a problem with that. The problem is that is not what is being taught in many schools. Examples are below and this is what i have heard is happening and what people are up in arms about. I haven't seen it myself, so ... Apologies for my ignorance or misstatement.

    A recent poll by the advocacy group Parents Defending Education claimed some schools were teaching that “white people are inherently privileged, while Black and other people of color are inherently oppressed and victimized”; that “achieving racial justice and equality between racial groups requires discriminating against people based on their whiteness”

    Opponents fear that CRT admonishes all white people for being oppressors while classifying all Black people as hopelessly oppressed victims. These fears have spurred school boards and state legislatures from Tennessee to Idaho to ban teachings about racism in classrooms. However, there is a fundamental problem: these narratives about CRT are gross exaggerations of the theoretical framework.

    My understanding of the essence of CRT is that it lumps white people in to an "oppressor" group and everyone else in to the "oppressed" group. I know this is grossly oversimplified, but that's what happens at a children's curriculum level. Please tell me if this is incorrect.

    I don't agree with teaching some children that they are oppressors and other children that they are oppressed.

    I do support teaching our children the true history of oppression in this nation and how to recognize/stand against it. But to teach them they are part of the problem isn't helpful imo.

    I know, spoken like a true oppressor.

    The first statement is true.

    The second statement does not sound like any CRT I've read.

    I'm very leery of any group named Parents Defending Education.
