Bill Gates has done a lot of charity work and I don’t want to blow up his spot, but there’s something a little sickening about billionaires backpatting themselves because people are making $2 a day. I find myself agreeing somewhat with Harvey Danger in his 1997 treatise on inequality Flagpole Sitta, it’s a sin to live so well.

Quote
Noting that 1,500 people had travelled to Davos by private jet to hear David Attenborough talk about climate change, he said he was bewildered that no one was talking about raising taxes on the rich.
“I hear people talking the language of participation, justice, equality and transparency but almost no one raises the real issue of tax avoidance, right? And of the rich just not paying their fair share,” Bregman tells the Time magazine panel on inequality.

“It feels like I’m at a firefighters conference and no one’s allowed to speak about water.”

Quote
Industry had to “stop talking about philanthropy and start talking about taxes”, he said, and cited the high tax regime of 1950s America as an example to disprove arguments by businesspeople at Davos such as Michael Dell that economies with high personal taxation could not succeed. “That’s it,” he says. “Taxes, taxes, taxes. All the rest is bullshit in my opinion.”

Quote
After the panel Bregman tweeted a link to a opinion piece he wrote for the Guardian in 2017, saying “most wealth is not created at the top, but merely devoured there”.

He's invested in a lot of PR to justify his wealth.

I didn't like their recent episode on state monopoly gambling per se but I appreciated that they put the California Lottery on blast specifically in it. Love to love in a state with no severance tax, no real property tax, no real rent control, but a state gambling monopoly.

Someone quit at my work a few weeks back and my boss complained they showed lack of respect and a fuck you attitude by just giving 3 days notice.

Its your own shitty contract asshole, this is how much notice you can give us too.

Want your lame / tired joke to go viral?

Post it under a fast food or snack brand's twitter account.. people will be amazed and shocked for some reason.

it shocks people because it breeches our capitalist reality while simultaneously trying to install a postmodern illusion in its place. we subconsciously react to the absurdity without consciously acknowledging it. in a very real sense we have become violated. here, žižec will explain

I just never had that effect;  the first time I saw a fast food twitter account talk shit I merely groaned at everyone else’s excitement.

I’m just that edgy.

look at the likes in the screenshot between the posts, where the original Sunny D tweet works is that you can imagine it coming from the human behind the account and breaking the "script" or the "fourth wall", the other three tweets including Sunny D's "comeback" are all on-script, on-pattern

what Wendy's and Arby's have done so effectively with their twitters is lean in on either the account existing separately from the brand and being a responsive twitter account or being a living embodiment of the brand as if the brand itself were a human on twitter, most of the rest of the corporate twitters don't have good enough staff to pull that off because they're trying to be multiple things rather than create a character

this is also why the realDonaldTrump account works so well, they created a character that people can connect with

That's ESSENTIALLY how tip based jobs work in America, in general.  Although usually it's only minimum wage they are guaranteed.

I imagine this is in their employment contract, and not some secret code written by evil developers.

There are apps for hiring line waiters (and being hired as);  it's usually for "muling" something (having them stand in line with you so you can get extra of a limited product being released.)

According to the superseding indictment, Burlakoff and the others ran a sophisticated scheme that used pharmacy data to identify doctors who prescribed a lot of opioids. They then bribed the doctors with offers of cushy speaking engagements to increase their Subsys prescriptions even further and to write a minimum number of prescriptions at a minimum dose to generate as many insured refill orders as possible "without regard to the medical needs of ... Subsys patients," according tot he indictment.

This actually works: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/7xn4a4/how-kids-youtube-star-blippi-used-copyright-law-to-hide-his-harlem-shake-poop-video
Quote
BuzzFeed reporter Katie Notopoulos did not link to, embed, or otherwise share the Harlem Shake Poop video in her piece, noting that “an attorney for [Blippi] sent BuzzFeed News a cease and desist letter asserting copyright on the video.”

BuzzFeed isn’t the only company that got a legal notice about the video’s copyright. In early January, someone claiming to represent Blippi filed a copyright takedown request with Google, which previously had linked to a Russian website that host the so-called “Harlem Shake Poop” video.

“The copywritten work of ‘Harlem Shake Poop’ is of a NSFW video of one man defecating on another,” the takedown request reads. “This video was not authorized for use on the links provided. This Russian site is illegally storing the videos on their servers and your search results have indexed them. The information in this notice is accurate. I swear under penalty of perjury I am authorized to act on behalf of the owner that holds the exclusive right of the Harlem Shake Poop video that allegedly infringed.”
Quote
After reading Notopoulos’s article, I naturally went searching for the video. I Googled “Harlem Shake Poop” and found a series of YouTube videos of people reacting to Blippi’s original video (think of the 2 Girls 1 Cup reaction video genre), but not the original video itself. At the bottom of the Google search results, however, I saw a notice: “In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), we have removed 1 result from this page.”
