Post Things You Find Satisfying...

as a matter of fact i dont have 5$
Thanks to Al Gore, we all have a global platform to spew shit. I don't begrudge anyone who has figured out a way to make some money doing it.
I will begrudge you, if you're going to use it to shit on me

The only people I can think I would be satisfied they were fired were people who directly worked with me who made my job/life harder.

But gloating about the firing of people I never met, probably never even heard of, because they work for a place that disagrees with me politically... I think that shows a real strength of character. Dare I say, heroism.

Yeah I pretty much always hate to see someone lose their job. Stupid people are people, too.

Still, there's no denying the delicious irony of socialists losing their jobs due to capitalism.
What about those who call for a firing because someone said "gay" five years ago?

I think most of the people that do that are people who are paid to manufacture outrage. I'm not a big fan of the outrage industry and kind of wish it would go away, but no, I don't begrudge the individual people that work in it. However you make your way through life is fine by me as long as it doesn't hurt me. Like if someone got paid to come and beat me up... you know even then I think I'd put it more on the asshole who hired them to beat me up.

So a bunch of HuffPost reporters aren't the problem - HuffPost is the problem. And when you really get down to it, HuffPost isn't the problem, it's the people who click on their stupid articles who are the problem. And you know who clicks on their articles the most? The people who are happy that their reporters got laid off. So you know...

So a world where personal responsibility doesn't exist? In the past, I would have been against that, but at this point, fuck it, sounds good.

I've brought this up several times before where what's the breakdown between True Believers, Outrage Provocateurs, and Click Quota Meeters. Because as much as we like to slobber about ideology, a lot of it, if not most, has more to do with knowing your audience and, more preciously, your anti-audience for those delicious clicks. Because the comments are rarely about the story or piece itself; they're generally people getting angry at the people the piece is presumably written for.

But regardless of where they fall, I simply don't understand why people you don't know losing their jobs causes anyone to feel anything. Let alone this weird pettiness.

Do I really have to say that contract killers and drug dealers should probably find a different way to make a living? Because then we have to have a whole thing about why it’s silly to compare someone making words on the internet to someone murdering people, and I would rather just watch a bad movie.

Wait - am I supposed to be happy Zack Snyder got fired? Or James Gunn? Or Bryan Singer?

I don’t care. Just tell me how I’m supposed to feel and I will muster the appropriate amount of exuberance or outrage.

Clearly, they don't click on their articles enough.
“Why am I getting fired?”

“Well, we’ve traced all the clicks we’ve ever gotten on your articles to some guy in Maine, and he uses an ad-blocker, so we can’t make any money off them...”

I intentionally didn't bring up killers or drug dealers because I didn't want to make a poor analogy. Now I wish I would have if you are going to act like I did anyway.

However, I wouldn't argue a SJW who contributes to a firing is worse than a murderer but I think it's at least debatable that they are worse than a drug dealer.

There is one profession I think I'd probably celebrate if they got fired. Not the whole profession, but just a certain type of person within that profession - doctors that over prescribe pain medications or psychiatric drugs.

Now "over" prescribe gets you into a huge grey area that I don't really want to get into and I'm sure someone will be fucking triggered by me even saying that.

If you're reading this and feeling triggered - YOUR pain is REAL and I believe you can't make it through the day without your pills.

Why does that one bother you? Because it is has affected your life personally?

It hasn't affected my life. I don't take any of that shit. I think I mentioned that I know one person who really got off the rails with the pain meds. She was a PA who was prescribing them to herself. But she had no negative outcome to that. She's still working, and got herself some help, so she's fine.

I think I saw someone here post that little graphic you see in hospitals, and was talking about the change in Medicine where it has become all about making sure nobody was in pain ever. And I think the notion that "nobody should be in pain (emotional or physical) ever" is a really childish expectation, and we should come up with better ways to deal with pain than that. If someone gets their arm chopped off, of course they're in pain. Give them ALL the drugs. But if someone had a shitty day or their back is a little stiff and they're a 1 on the pain scale - you know, maybe try and figure out a different way to work through that. Hopefully you know what I mean - someone comes in, says they're in pain, they get drugs. No tests, no MRI, no examination, just "Let me give you these pills because you claim your leg hurts."



There's probably other professions if I really think about it.

I didn't mean only you. I meant you or someone you know.

I agree with everything you said but I still find it weird that is the only (or one of the few) profession.

And if you'd be happy they are fired, how is that any different than someone enjoying if a scumbag SJW is fired?

I thought of another one - a teacher than has sex with their student. That's one that I'm happy when they get fired. Or a daycare worker that abuses the kids. Unless the kids are asking for it, of course.

The doctors you’re bitching about are just trying to shut you up so you will go the Fuck away, you want to blame the Dr? I want to blame the people who sit around on their asses all day doing nothing of any substance other than shitting on people, who then “go to the gym” or “went adventure hiking” and fell off a cliff and get a boo boo, meanwhile the guy who fell for a roof and broke his back can’t get a Tylenol with codine, because of the first bunch of worthless pussys.
Oh, and blame the junkie not the junk or the Dr

It sounds like we are on the same page. You care about certain assholes getting fired and others care about other assholes being fired. So let's not act like it's crazy when people enjoy seeing others get fired.
