I've worked retail for over 15 years. I wage war with myself so that I don't become a misanthrope. But between fellow co-workers who don't care how their behavior makes your life more difficult and the customers who think you're literally there to worship them it's a struggle.

Retail just gives you multiple bullies to deal with instead just the owner or manager. All of who could end your employment.

The worse things get the more likely governments are to brutalize you back into the workplaces. The US labor history is one of violent government repression. Arguably the worst of all the industrialized countries. And one of armed resistance.

I think, in the US at least, the working class will need to organize a massive general strike and be prepared to defend ourselves.

And the government doesn't need an excuse to get violent. If it wants to do it it will and bull shit an excuse later.

I don't think Clinton would've opened child concentration camps (though I could be wrong). I think leftists tend to underappreciate that the micro differences are real people's lives and real suffering (because they understand that for the rest of the world it doesn't matter). Would Clinton have made a difference for anywhere else besides those on American soil? Not a one.

I had my wife bring them home. There's a no kill shelter a half hour away. Going to call on Monday to see if they'll take them. I'll probably have to wait til next weekend to go but they're safe on my 3 season porch (need to keep my cat safe just in case they're sick) with food, a litter box and water. Much better off than they were.

I agree cats shouldn't be outside for that exact reason. They're decimating native animals all over the world.

I had my wife bring them home. Probably going to bring them to a no kill shelter half hour away. They spay and neuter so even if someone takes it and allows it outside they won't at least have offspring.
