Advances in understanding, theory and measurement must necessarily proceed hand in hand. A companion article in this publication sets forth the urgent need for new theory in economics. This article sets forth the complementary need for new measures. The stakes are high and the choice is ours.
Burn the Fucking System to the Ground December 23, by Clark "I'm a good judge" … said by government employee and judge Gisele Pollack who, it seems, sentenced people to jail because of their drug use… while she, herself, was high on drugs.
And that's why, it seems, she's being allowed to check herself into rehab instead of being thrown in jail. I'm reminded of something I read earlier today: If you're super high up in the political chain, you get the high court. Reveal classified info to filmmakers?
Not only will you not be prosecuted or even lose your job, the inspectors will scrub your name from the report and, according to the article, the person in charge of the investigation will "slow roll" the eventual release of the report until you switch jobs.
But if you're just a worker bee and you leaked the unclassified draft report that names Panetta and Vickers? Well, you get the low court. A new investigation, including aggressive pursuit by the government, and interrogations of staffers to try to find out who leaked the report.
Twenty years ago I was a libertarian. I thought the system could be reformed.
I thought that some parts of it "worked"… whatever that means. I thought that the goals were noble, even if not often achieved. The older I get, the more I see, the more I read, the more clear it becomes to me that the entire game is rigged. The leftists and the rightists each see half of the fraud.
The lefties correctly note that a poor kid caught with cocaine goes to jail, while a Bush can write it off as a youthful mistake they somehow overlook the fact that their man Barrack hasn't granted clemency to any one of the people doing federal time for the same felonies he committed.
The righties note that government subsidized windmills kill protected eagles with impunity while Joe Sixpack would be deep in the crap if he even picked up a dead eagle from the side of the road. The lefties note that no one was prosecuted over the financial meltdown. The righties note that the Obama administration rewrote bankruptcy law on the fly to loot value from GM stockholders and hand it to the unions.
The lefties note that Republicans tweak export rules to give big corporations subsidies. Every now and then both sides join together to note that, hey! What neither side seems to realize is that the system is not reformable.
There are multiple classes of people, but it boils down to the connected, and the not connected. Just as in pre-Revolutionary France, there is a very strict class hierarchy, and the very idea that we are equal before the law is a laughable nonsequitr.
They can, literally, be killed with impunity … as long as the dash cam isn't running. And, hell, half the time they can be killed even if the dash cam is running. This isn't hyperbole, mother-fucker.
Question me and I'll throw cites and 20 youtube clips at you.
Next up from Shaneekwa and Loudmouth Bob are us regular peons. We can have our balls squeezed at the airport, our rectums explored at the roadside, our cars searched because the cops got permission from a dog I owe some Reason intern a drink for that oneour telephones tapped because terrorism!
We don't own the house we live in, not if someone of a higher social class wants it. And if there's a "national security emergency" defined as two idiots with a pressure cookerthen the constitution is suspended, martial law is declared, and people are hauled out of their homes.
Next up from the regular peons are the unionized, disciplined-voting-blocks. Not-much-brighter-than-a-box-of-crayolas teachers who work days a year and get automatic raises. Firefighters who disproportionately retire on disability the very day they sub in for their bosses and get a paper cut.
Occupational health should aim at the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations; the prevention amongst workers of departures from health caused by their working conditions; the protection of workers in their employment from risks resulting from factors adverse to health; the placing and maintenance of the worker in. This paper is part of a study of employee engagement and its relationship with seafarer safety, performance and retention. This section focuses on the impact of seafarer turnover, identifies and understands drivers of retention and their relevance in shipping, and explores the relationship of engagement with retention. Introduction.

A step up from the teachers and firefighters are the cops: The de facto power to confiscate cameras in case the murder wasn't well planned.
A right to keep and bear arms that far exceeds that of the serf class: At the same level of privilege as cops, but slightly off to one side is different class of nobility:Motivation to lead: Antecedents of the motivation to lead and comparative study between groups of “leaders” and “non-leaders ” and within gr oup of “leaders.

June 05, Defending Marriage From the Marriage Bigots. Look, am I mad or something? I look around and about at people talking about same-sex marriage, and it seems that everyone is accepting the discussion on the marriage bigots' terms, rather than reality.
