    to anyone who opposes unions, please explain why?

    Let's read it ... Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. So, slavery is no longer allowed, right? But wait, what is that word...

    Trust me, you would not like employee-equity. It's like employee-ownership on steroids.

    Revolution in Iran?

    There is something so beautiful about reliving the last Iranian takeover of my childhood, only this time, not to the Ayatollah, but to regular people who want their country back. I can't share the pessimism of Q and Grumps, I pray that we are now witnessing something that will last.

    Revolution in Iran?

    I hope that you and Q are very much wrong, and that the Persian people manage to take back their country from the religious fundamentalists who have reduced the once-great country of Iran to an anti-secular backwater.

    Revolution in Iran?

    How would this actually work? The Starlink to mobile isn't set up yet, right? The Iranian activists would need to get a Starlink base unit to connect with the satellites, Iran blocked access to the Starlink site, so the activists will need get in another way, I read something about the U.S...

    Another doobie snuffed out

    Yes. In high school years, my buddy Rocksteady Eddy finally got a gig at the high school radio station. It was the kind of thing that combined with a custom van or a Trans Am, just might get a guy laid. The DJ played over the PA before and after school and before rallies and such. Apparently...

    Synthesis means something different to me, kinda hard to explain in English. But the ladies from Zouk Machine will explain it in Creole ...

    Revolution in Iran?

    Maybe, but as evidenced by what happened with Mosadeq and then the Shah and then the Ayatolla, the uneducated poor in Iran have little to no control of the political process there. Persians might see a transfer of power here if they can retain the sufficiently secular parts of their parliament...

    We have discussed all manner of corporate structures. If you are threatened by employee unions, employee equity is really going to terrify you!

    The argument for and against unions also comes down to a purely emotional thing. When JZK or Vici sees a picket line they might feel a tinge of unease, maybe disgust that these lowly workers have used their collective power against their employers in a variation of the way their employer uses...

    Do you do business in Africa? If not, I am happy to outline the basics for you ... I am an employee-owner of a company in Ghana, it is an Employee-Equity company, granite level E=C compliant. The people of West Africa have been predated on by global colonialism, from France, Belgium, Britain...

    I responded to your question of "Why are you so intent on emphasizing the millennial/gen-z split?" I explained why, I gave you data, and you disagree. Good enough. And you are clever and adorable in your own way too, do I at least get a courtesy reach-around with your's? I watched a chunk of...

    Barcodes ... I don't care about being "right" but I was already paying Amazon a sizable monthly manufacturer fee for them to be competent at their jobs. Everyone else enters the manufacturer code and then accepts the product designators, everyone from Barnes & Noble down to the local ski shop...

    to anyone who opposes unions, please explain why?

    You don't need or want a union because you own your own business. Not all employees can do or want to do that. And yet, they may still want some reassurance as an older employee that they won't be laid off for a cheaper young person or harassed in their job by a predatory management. As for...

    But that's my point, the data doesn't support this idea that age has nothing to do with it. And yes, there are long-term shifts, and those still leave some ages in the dust. The Boomers were a huge generation, and the wealthy ones did delay having children like no generation in history. The...
