Is there a rule that says every couple of years we must all stop and lament the poor exploited Epic children who apparently have no say in the matter even though they and their parents agree that they (and their ilk) are among the smartest human beings alive?
I'll honor them with a moment of silence later today, maybe while I'm visiting my dad at the nursing home. I'll make sure to bring awareness of their plight to the young CNAs in dad's unit who make somewhere in the $12-15/hr range and spend the majority of their shift toileting and changing diapers and lifting dead weight helpless people from awkward back-wrenching positions.
Maybe I can catch "Mary", who the last time I saw her was looking forward to getting off her shift at 11PM so she could drive the 30 miles home and get some sleep before she had to be back at 7AM to cover a shift that's unfilled......because it's a low-paying and often incredibly unpleasant job that goes often unnoticed (and unappreciated) until something bad happens.
I wonder how often Epic employees have to walk the halls spraying Lysol to cover up the smell of human feces? Edit: I just remembered, they could simply go in their private office and shut the door.
IT’S BASICALLY JUST IMMORAL TO BE RICHhttps://www.currentaffairs.org/2017/03/ ... to-be-rich
"Here is a simple statement of principle that doesn’t get repeated enough: if you possess billions of dollars, in a world where many people struggle because they do not have much money, you are an immoral person. The same is true if you possess hundreds of millions of dollars, or even millions of dollars. Being extremely wealthy is impossible to justify in a world containing deprivation."
Oh give me a fucking break A.Q. Smith and Dave St. Amant. The only person who has any right to tell Judy Faulkner how to spend her money is Judy Faulkner.
