Slog PM: Tech workers unite, Joe Kent refuses to back down, WWIII

Tech workers of the world, you are not invincible. Billionaires are after you. Elon Musk is not crazy. It has a logical agenda, and it’s to reduce your grip on capital for decades, your “general intellect“the power, which (thanks to Generation X) has never been unionized. You thought they needed you, they would always need you, they would fall without you. Maybe then; maybe not now. A local boss of Meta that I know told me that they had lost almost their entire team. Another person (a friend of a friend) working at Meta’s Oculus VR in Seattle was shocked to be dumped like this. An Amazon tech I overheard in a bar in South Lake Union: “Everyone is freaking out. Alexa device users are facing a big blackout.” It’s like that, and it’s like that. And watch what’s happening on Twitter. Read this like nothing but your future. It sounds grim because capital (i.e. the owners of the social power that defines our time) believes it has your number. Let it sink in.

Sorry, it is fake, fake, fake: “The 14-year-old shooter charged at Ingraham High School could face a murder charge as an adult.” If you can call a boy an adult, then you should give minors the right to vote. Why is this boy an adult now and not an adult in all other social categories? Because we will not admit that what happened in Ingraham is nothing other than the expression of a social failure. We as a (adult led) society have failed to keep our schools safe. As a society, we have failed to enact laws that control guns. Making the child an adult, blaming him for this crime, is nothing but a distraction from this evidence. The people who should be judged are the adults of the boys’ world.

What is this monkey business? Looks like Kent didn’t get the message. my northwest: “Perez wins 3rd District House seat, Kent refuses to concede.” Election deniers have, after this election, pretty much gone the way of the dinosaurs. We will soon be watching them in wonder in the Museum of American Political History. This monstrosity, this one, another captured (open mouth, lots of powerful, ripping teeth) as a comet enters the atmosphere.

As long as it’s cold, these sunny days without rain do not bother me at all. What did Charles Baudelaire say about the key figure in the city, the flâneur? Yes, it is this: They are bright but cold as stars. The cold sun, its cold light, is just like the rain.

The story of a Columbia City house. The one owned by real black people? Value, according to an appraiser: $670,000. The one owned by fake white people? Value over $900,000. KIRO to this old, too old, story.

The GOP has, as you can see, learned absolutely nothing. They are the party of white men and white women who worship them.

Senator Rick Scott decided the time was right to write the story of Mitch McConnell. He, the United States Senate Minority Leader, failed to control the House. And nothing came of the GOP’s Red Wave. All this calls for a great upheaval. A snake for another snake. Fox: “Rick Scott announces his intention to unseat Mitch McConnell as the top Republican in the Senate.” But Scott, according to Mitch, is all hiss and no poison: “I have the votes. I will be elected.”

Third World War? Russian missiles hit Polish town and kill two. What does it talk about? In the words of MJ: “I want to start something.”

Did someone say World War III? Let’s feel it in The Bug’s”Judgement
