The voters have decided that Royaourt is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.
Also about pay and dollar-3I've been watching the media explode over this whole "me too" movement. From the way it has been promoted, you are led to believe 9 out of 10 guys is now a sexual predator. I'm an older guy, and have never even known anyone personally, who was guilty of rape or attempted rape. Does it happen? Of course it happens. I just don't think it happens as often as it is portrayed to be happening. Kids making out in a car, and one touching the other's breast, but stopping when the girl says no, is not sexual assault in my book. Sexual assault is a crime, and needs to be treated as a crime. With a crime, you need to report it, and evidence needs to be collected. Then a person is charged and judged. I'm sick of women accusing a man 30+ years later, with zero evidence, and then collecting a million dollar paycheck. (Be it from book deals, go fund me pages, or media/political pay-offs.) This craziness will not stop until ALL false accusers have to spend serious jail time when found to be making it up.
Also about pay+55It is naive to think that companies would still pay living wages to their employees if there were no law telling them they had to pay a minimum wage, amirite?
Also by Royaourt+51If science is automated, even scientists will only be students. amirite?
Also about pay and gas+134You have that one friend who says they'll help pay for gas when you give them rides or let them use your car who disappears or becomes silent every time buying gas comes up, amirite?
Also by Royaourt0It is totally reasonable, as a man, to pursue a relationship or sex with a woman who claims she is lesbian because she could just be playing hard to get, amirite?
Also about pay and dollar+369No, The government cannot just print a 14 trillion dollar bill to pay off their debt. If they did, it would cause massive inflation and the value of a dollar would go down to less than a cent and Wall Street would crash, amirite?
Also about pay, gas, and dollar+563If I had a dollar for every time I heard that... I would still have to get two jobs and a loan to pay for a car and gas. amirite?
Also about gas-158Why are all of the gas pump nozzles circular? Doesn't it seem like another shape would be more efficient? For example, ovals are bigger, so you could get more gas in. amirite?
Also by Royaourt+21If there is intelligent life on other planets, it's entirely possible some of them are illiterate. amirite?!
Also about directly and dollar+46It is a very old trope that poverty creates crime, but it's a lie, crime creates poverty. Not only does crime directly destroy wealth as thieves steal expensive goods and sell them for pennies on the dollar, it drives away people who have money, and prevents people from investing money in those areas because your investment is not safe there and neither are you. Without crime, poorer areas are attractive to investors because the cost of property and labor are lower than other areas, so wealth flows in and poverty dissipates. But crime prevents that, it creates and perpetuates poverty. amirite?
