    Intention being the key word there. Let's see what the courts say about that.

    [–] Ex-Trump Adviser Warns of President's Erratic, Bizarre Behavior: 'It's Growing Worse and Worse. I Can't Explain It' MadDogTannen 6 points ago in politics

    They're laughing at us like we laughed at the UK after the brexit vote. They shouldn't be laughing, they should be worried about it happening in their own countries.

    [–] What Glassdoor interview reviews reveal about tech hiring cultures MadDogTannen 19 points ago in programming

    but as an employee I would much rather be too hard to fire than too easy that's for sure.

    Eh, I work for a quasi-government organization where it's very hard to fire people, and the amount of dead weight on my team is very frustrating. If people aren't working out, they should be let go rather than stay and drag the rest of the group down.

    [–] Trump's fake accent no joke for Asian Americans MadDogTannen 1 points ago in politics

    To the degree that his Baltimore comments motivate his base to turn out for him, they also motivate his opponents to turn out against him.

    [–] Trump's fake accent no joke for Asian Americans MadDogTannen 2 points ago in politics

    The Baltimore thing pissed off more than the people of Baltimore. It may have motivated his base in swing states, but they were already motivated. How did it play with swing voters in swing states?

    Even Trump's agenda has been limited by his inability to work within the system and across the aisle, and his party controls 2.5 of our 3 branches of government.

    In the end, it was much better for the country to see Biden wipe the floor with her than it would have been to call off the debate, but your point is well taken.

    Don't paint the media with one broad brush. NPR and PBS are quite good in their reporting, as are many foreign news organizations such as the BBC. It's mostly cable news that's the problem.

    Also, the worst stuff isn't even coming from cable news, it's coming from social media, where the complete lack of gatekeepers had made it a cesspool of misinformation. If you're not extremely skeptical about the things you see online, no amount of cynicism regarding the mainstream media is going to help you.

    [–] U.S. created 500,000 fewer jobs since 2018 than previously reported, new figures show MadDogTannen 11 points ago in politics

    Remember when Trump said the low unemployment numbers were fake under Obama, but they're real now that he's president?

    [–] Recession fears, recession reality MadDogTannen 2 points ago in investing

    The same thing happened to people connected to real estate in 2008. I remember so many people jumping into real estate as agents, investors, flippers, etc. and many more who were on the finance side selling liar loans. Once credit dried up and no one was buying houses anymore, a lot of these people who jumped into real estate with no experience or skill realized that they were not the real estate geniuses they thought they were, and they had to go find something else to do.

    [–] How to time travel MadDogTannen 1 points ago in funny

    Louis CK has a joke about how getting divorced is like stepping out of a time machine, but it's a really shitty time machine that takes just as long to travel to the future as it does to just wait for the future to arrive on its own.

    [–] How to time travel MadDogTannen 1 points ago in funny

    Damn it, Doc! Why did you have to tear up that letter. If only I had more time... Wait, a minute, I got all the time I want! I got a time machine! I could just go back early and warn him. All right. Let's see, ten minutes ought to do it. Time circuits on, Flux Capacitor... fluxing, engine running, all right!

    [–] Phil and Cam should be best friends MadDogTannen 22 points ago in Modern_Family

    I think the big difference is that Cam is catty and easily offended while Phil is almost always willing to give people the benefit of the doubt.

    [–] [META] This sub is for weed reduction and moderation, not for quitting completely. Go to /r/leaves for that. MadDogTannen 2 points ago in Petioles

    There really needs to be a community that is devoted to quitting, but that isn't as strict as /r/leaves. Kinda like how /r/truechildfree emerged for people who don't want kids, but don't appreciate the kid-hating toxicity of /r/childfree.

    [–] Psych Intro Monk Style MadDogTannen 3 points ago in psych

    It was instrumental (no lyrics), but it was still a song.

    [–] Psych Intro Monk Style MadDogTannen 2 points ago in psych

    Interesting that this one has the character names instead of the actor names.

    [–] Psych Intro Monk Style MadDogTannen 2 points ago in psych

    I like the Monk theme from the first couple of seasons. The Randy Newman one is ok, but I think the original song fit the show better.

    [–] Frasier voted the 9th best comedy TV series of all time MadDogTannen 4 points ago in Frasier

    Season 4 is where things start going off the rails in terms of suspension of disbelief, but it still has a lot of really funny moments. The quality takes a huge hit when Carell leaves the show though.
