Ironically, in med circles, Duke Hospitals are infamous for being MBA run sweatshops. One business I work with has multiple doctors who were formerly at Duke who quit because the business arseholes wouldn't even give them 5 minutes with a patient on average. Doctors are just a profit making cog in the medical business establishment--just like you. The MBAs call the shots.

I'm not actually sure you're right about this.

Why have the insane leftists made some quick, easy, and deep inroads into open source? Well, it was a space dominated by awkward, intelligent, nerdy, and non-physical guys. Of course there are millions of people in open source and this is painting with a broad stroke, but it's also largely true.

Some of those guys have left projects or tried to start others, and most often, those things fizzle.

The majority of the people doing the actual work in open source just keep their heads down, keep coding, they feel virtuous and like they are good allies, and they don't toe the line because they know what has happened to others.

As we've noticed many, many times, the aggressive SJW activists almost always work in community (jannies) and SOMETIMES in documentation/testing.

Well, she's definitely Turkish. As a Turk who's travelled the Middle East, she could 100% differentiate between German, Persian, and Arabic (and Turkish). They are quite different and even with a small amount of knowledge you can tell the difference between Persian and Arabic.

So yeah, she was protecting her co-religionists AND her own job as a "refugee activist."

The super-majority of Muslims are Arabs and they're where it spawned, Just like how you have Natsoc Japanese and Mexicans for example, yet you wouldn't say the ideation is tied to them and it's a White one, for an obvious example.

Not even close! You could say that Islam is an inherently Arab religion (and I would say that, given the huge importance of Arabic and the Arabic words of the Qur'an), but today Arabs are a minority of Muslims.

Start with maybe 250 million Indonesian Muslims, almost the same in Pakistan alone (and tens of millions more if you include India/Sri Lanka/Afghanistan). Toss in maybe 100 million Turks, 100 million Persians and Kurds, etc. Nobody knows the number of Muslims in China, but tens of millions there. Millions in Malaysia, millions in sub-Saharan Africa, etc.

Comparatively, there are maybe 300 million Arab Muslims. A big chunk, and culturally a very important chunk, but not nearly a "super majority"

There are already reports about how groups of Never Trumper "republicans" are meeting with Democrats in an effort to get Biden to step down.

They simply can't be trusted.

I found another article about this lady. It's talking about "indigenous academics" in Australia, and one of the pictures shows several people of different tribal groups. They are paler than I am, and my genetics score like 80% British Isles and the rest northern Germany.

Do these clearly white European people seriously believe they're abos?

Like, is this a common thing in Australia? It of course happens in American (Rachel Dolezal, Elizabeth Warren, Talcum X, etc) but we make fun of our fraudsters.

I scrolled through her Instagram. There's not even a single black person anywhere. I can't see any hit on mixed heritage in her features. Admittedly it can be very hard (or impossible) to tell by looks at times, but I would guess that at most she may have had a single great-grandparent aboriginal ancestor?? (1/16)? Or less??

What is most amusing to me is that there seem to be a lot of confused people here. Accusations of sexual talk with a minor?! ((((Herschel Beahm))))?! Twitter/twitch/facebook cancel culture?! Based gamer fighting with feminists?! Which side am I on?!

I remember the stereotype of cons being filled up with fat middle-aged men dressing up like Sailor Moon.

I was in to anime for a period when Kenshin, Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Love Hina, etc. were very popular. I knew people that were into Ranma, but I never followed it. Anime was then a (like D&D) often a refuge for people who didn't fit into the mainstream.

Hah, I'm 40+. I've never been much of a console gamer though, and I've never particularly cared about Zelda. I owned an NES and the next Nintendo console I owned was the Wii.

I feel like the king at the end shows up in memes / forum fairly often?? Never knew what it was from.

Sure it is, that's a dead ringer for my sister-in-law, ayo!

The only difference is if it’s going to be Civil or international

Why not both?

I don’t think I was an adult or fully mature or stabilized into my current brainset until maybe my upper 20s. Maybe even ~30. Having kids forced a huge change as well.

I do feel that many of my female friends and acquaintances had reached the same level of brain stability by roughly the end of college.

This seems like the kind of topic for which there really ought to be some hard science research. I don’t know if there is.

One of the most famous and common symbols of Jesus and Christianity is the Shepherd’s Crook.

What, exactly, do people thing the crook was used for?

Somewhat fake news.

MIss Alabama 2023: https://www.missalabama.com/meet-miss-alabama-2023-brianna-burrell/

This person doesn't seem to be a candidate this year? https://www.missalabama.com/miss-alabama-candidates/

(p.s. I'm a big fan of "Miss Hoover")

This person is Sara Milliken who did, indeed, win "National American Miss Alabama" which is some rival organization that operates in 5 states. https://www.namstatepageant.com

This org doesn't even seem to list pageant winners on their site? At least I didn't see any. So clown world yes, but not QUITE as insane clown world.

Ideas are nice but successful execution is far more important.

That is something that MANY people don't think about or downplay. It's not enough to be right or to have the right idea. You also have to put in the work, put in the follow through, and add a bit of luck too.
