Twin Cities-based MyPillow is laying off roughly 10% of its workforce at its manufacturing plant in Shakopee.

That means about 150 employees will be without jobs.

In a statement, CEO Mike Lindell says: “Exciting changes are happening at MyPillow. I am getting ready to launch my next venture, mystore.com.”

Lindell says the decision was difficult, but what’s best for the future of the company, to make room for the online store where inventors will sell their products.

He said employees have been informed of job opportunities outside of MyPillow if they choose.

Lindell said they anticipate hiring once the new online store is up and running.

Ah, yes. The “you can’t have your old job back but we’ll give you a new one that pays less” trick.

Blasting caps, too. The prevalence of these PSAs was incredible in the late 50s and early 60s.Youtube Video

The reason for this was that local TV stations were always short on content, especially free content, and the Institute of Explosive Makers put a lot of effort into making safety warnings on behalf of the industry. The warnings were intended for a limited audience around mines and quarries and the like but they soon spread everywhere, and a generation was convinced that the whole countryside and every vacant lot was littered with dangerous explosive debris.

Republicans have stopped pretending on abortion
By Paul Waldman
Opinion writer

washingtonpost.com

Republicans realize they now have a chance they didn’t have before Mitch McConnell refused to allow Barack Obama to fill a vacant Supreme Court seat and Anthony Kennedy retired. There are now five justices on the court who are almost certainly opposed to Roe, so state Republicans are hoping to force their hand.

As I’ve noted before, if they wanted to be sneaky about it, the Supreme Court could make Roe meaningless without overturning it, by narrowing the notion of an “undue burden” on the right to an abortion (a standard established in another abortion case) so far that states would be free to impose even the most draconian restrictions, like mandating that all abortion clinics be built of solid gold, use medical instruments that have been to space, and communicate with their patients only in cuneiform. The outlawing of abortion wouldn’t be in the language of the bill, but it would be the inevitable effect.

Since I’m catching up on the last thread:

re: #291 DangerMan

4 Elementary School Teachers Suspended After Photo Emerges Of Them Holding Noose, Laughing

so once again…
we know exactly what we’re doing
we know exactly what it means
we didn’t think anyone would find out

…and we’d be able to get away with being our racist selves

That parent quote, “It’s time to get out of this state,” makes little sense.

The “get out of this area” part is prolly a good idea; the teachers’ replacements in Palmdale are unlikely to be much less racist, after all. But California as a state is still the furthest-left, least-racist place in the US. If you have to leave the entire state to get to a place of tolerance, you have to leave the country too.

According to parents, the woman smiling on the extreme left of the photo is Jennifer Garcia. She was known for testifying at the Gabriel Fernandez abuse and murder trial. As his first grade teacher, she testified that as his teacher, she could tell the boy was being physically harmed at home. She contacted the authorities.

Fernandez was the 8-year-old boy who died after he was abused and tortured by his mother and her boyfriend. His mother pleaded guilty and is serving a life sentence. Her boyfriend went on trial, was found guilty and sentenced to the death penalty.

Now you know why he’ll never run for office. He can only hang out in his echo chamber that retweets him “destroying” other people. Tough questions aren’t for Ben because Ben lives in his own reality where everyone who doesn’t share his views is a leftist. The little sob was Milo’s best bud for years until he suddenly discovered the alt right was Anti-Semitic. He took a paycheck from Steve Bannon for years and has the nerve to attack the mainstream American left as Antisemitic.

There were a small amount of Jewish fascists that were part of Mussolini’s movement. Jews can be fascist. Just because Ben has been targeted by even more racist and fascist assholes doesn’t mean he can’t be a fascist enabler himself. Shapiro fans just can’t acknowledge that their emperor has no clothes and his extreme views were called out by a conservative and Ben because he’s a stupid prick called the guy a leftist because everyone’s a leftist who doesn’t share Ben’s narrow worldview.

Exactly. How many times have I seen him go out of his way to justify Trump’s racist policies? How many times has he defended racially based policies because “science.”? And that’s not even starting on his fucked up views on transgendered people. He really has no sense of perspective. He doesn’t deserve teh death threats he gets from even worse people but he helped create their culture by defending Milo constantly and going along with the racist bullshit. In short, he was fine with the alt right’s racism until they turned on him for being Jewish. If he had any decency, he would realize that alt right’s racism is wrong because it’s racist towards everyone not just Jews.

OT: Been chipping away at my book set on the day before 9/11. I’m up to 105 pages but as I reread some portions I realized my opening seemed to lack punch. So I wrote a new short introductory chapter. Each chapter is time stamped, the time representing when on 9/10/01 the described events occurred.

What do you guys think of this?

———————————————————

1:11 AM

“Thousands will die.

Their blood will run through the streets like a river.

The cries of their families will echo from the cities.

A nation will be brought to its knees.

Crimes have been committed by America for decades. The evidence unmistakable and undeniable.

The trial was over. The verdict? Guilty.

The punishment would be brutal, but necessary. The executioners were ready. In less than 48 hours they would carry out the sentence.

And Allah would shower blessings upon them.”

The young man laid his pen down took a moment to reflect on what he had just written. He smiled. He was confident the plan would succeed. That he and his brothers would do what they came here to do.

And America would suffer greatly.

What’s with the idea that Jews can’t be fascists? How you define “The Nation” is not a rigid, universally applicable thing. It’s like how in the 18th and early 19th Century, the Irish in America were excluded from the majority, they weren’t “white”, in the sense of enjoying all the privileges of whiteness. By the end of the century, that division had largely faded away. Miller and Shapiro see themselves as part of “The Nation”, so, yeah, they can be fascist.

This is a piece of a monologue HBO’s new “Chernobyl” miniseries begins with. Chilling and damn thoughtworthy.
I don’t know if it is attributable to the Valery Legasov (left), played by Jared Harris (right) in the series, or if it a piece of monologue the makers took liberties with.
What is known that he did make a lot of recordings on tape before he killed himself on the day exactly two years after the Chernobyl disaster, after having tried in vain to tell the truth about the accident. He was the chief of the commission investigating the Chernobyl disaster.
Together with Alexey Ananenko, Boris Baranov and Valery Bespalov, the three unsung heroes of the Chernoby disaster, I think these are heroes worth remembering. The latter three risked their lives feeling their way in the dark in radioactive water to open a gate to let out water which would’ve otherwise caused a massive explosion if the molten core reached it. The Chernobyl disaster was a horrific explosion in its own right, but it would’ve been orders of magnitude worse if they hadn’t volunteered.
Sorry if I got the attribution wrong. I make no claims on the meme itself, and hereby place the meme in the public domain (as-is, no warranties, do not inhale, etc. etc., you know the drill).

No. This is war for them. The family members of the autocrat enjoy the same deference as the autocrat.

The Trump tax hike continues. Trump’s tariffs will cost everyone $500 this year on average.

So, when Trump claims you saw a tax break, the reality is quite different.

Trump claims China is paying the tariffs. That is a lie.

It is not a lie because Trump does not understand how tariffs work. The tax is paid by the importer, not the exporter.

re: #107 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

I really wonder if he is just too dumb to understand.

The worst effect of lying and being lied to is not that one loses ones trust in others, but that one gradually loses ones ability to discern truth from lies, as well as the compass which tells one what one can “get away with”. Liars also tend to begin looking down on those they lie to.
The effect is proportional to how long one has been lied to and how far from the reality the lies have been. The effect also affects ones perception of reality detrimentally.
One can also falsely identify truth as lies, and be more prone to so, feeling that truth is “boring” and suspect (“doesn’t feel right”).
It is for this reason some with this type of distortion of their perception of reality end up with psychotic episodes when confronted with their perception of reality being based on lies (a.k.a. a reality check), because they were essentially semi-psychotic to begin with.
This psychotic episode is usually temporary, but if one has been exposed to lies for long enough and they have been far enough from reality, it may become permanent.

Consider yourselves warned.

House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal has issued subpoenas for President Trump’s tax returns

These are turning out to be the moral equivalent of the White House tapes, except a lot less harder to defend using executive privilege

Or maybe Trump will try pleading the Fifth…

Well, you know that, and I know that: most Lizards reading this thread probably know that, but the real audience for this crap probably isn’t anybody who actually knows how tariffs work.

Like most things Trump, the actuality of programs is way less important (to the point of irrelevancy) than how they LOOK like they’re “working”, or (most importantly), how the “base” THINKS they’re working. Trump knows that the red-hatted rednecks whooping it up at his clownshow rallies are going to hear “$250 billion in tariffs on China”, and think only that it’s somehow sticking a quarter-trillion-dollar hit to the “cheating” Chinese - which they will hugely admire “tough guy” Trump for.

That most of that money will end up being paid out of the pockets of American consumers probably doesn’t occur to them. And if told, would probably just dismiss it as “librul lies” or “Trump Derangement Syndrome” or whatever BS they prefer to obviate reality with….

They’re also dead certain that the miniscule amount of tax they pay on their below-median income all goes to provide welfare, MediCal, and subsidized housing to millions of illegal Messicans in The Big Cities.

but none of their taxes pay anything for their benefit, like roads, water, electricity/gasoline/etc (fossil fuel subsidies, doncha know)

or *gasp*! Medicare, SSI, SS disability…
