John Boehner is planning to use YOUR tax dollars to sue President Obama. It’s an unprecedented political stunt to stop Obama from using executive orders to make progress for the American people.
House Republicans shut down the government — but that wasn’t enough. 
Now they’re suing the President. Sign your name to stand with President Obama and denounce Boehner’s baseless lawsuit.

OVER the past 40 years, the geography of family life has been destabilized by two powerful forces pulling in opposite directions and occasionally scraping against each other, much like tectonic plates. One is the striking progress toward equality between men and women. The other is the equally striking growth of socioeconomic inequality and insecurity. Since the 1970s, families have become more egalitarian in their internal relationships. But inequality among families has soared. Women have become more secure as their real wages and legal rights have increased. But families have become more insecure as their income and job instability have worsened.

If you haven’t heard of this, planned obsolescence is when a company DELIBERATELY places defects or uses lesser quality materials so that the product will break or fail within a pre-planned amount of time, causing people to go out and buy replacements.

Yes, companies…

End planned Obsolescence and we could work 3 days a week, afford ALL we need, and still have a healthy growing (profitable) economy.  And slow down the rape of the Earth.

There are really people that don’t know this? Of course companies make things to break. I’m pretty sure we’ve had the technology to make a lightbulb that would last forever for years now, right?

It’s really lame, and the above is true, but at the same time many companies would completely go out of business if their products didn’t fail at some point. That’s no excuse for making extremely faulty stuff, but obsolescence is what ends up pushing people to buy more. For example, if they did make lightbulb a that never burned out there would no longer be a need for a factory that makes lightbulbs and many would lose their jobs.

That’s capitalism for you. Not saying I agree with it, but that’s how it goes.

Sure, we’ve always thought that online voting would be convenient, but a judge in Maryland will be hearing arguments soon whether it’s a right that the state is obligated to provide its disabled voters. It’s a compelling argument, and we can’t wait to see how it pans out. What do you think?

what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


Cool!


Huh!
