The true labor intensive projects we do are nuclear power plants. That's the only place I've ever seen a truly mind-boggling amount of workers, and there's a reason: nuclear power plants are heavily regulated; everything, down to a single pipe joint, has to be signed off on by an engineer. So you need shit loads of guys because of the purposefully-redundant safety measures. Which is a good thing.

But, along with all these traveling workers comes other shit: massive amounts of drugs, prostitution, and all manners of vices--I say this not in a classist way but as one of the workers who has heard--and seen photos from--the stories. The traveling fitter's life is a party hard environment (which makes sense when you have people working 7 12 hour days for months on end).

But, once the workers are gone, all of these services (which somehow I think aren't included in the job creation tally) disappear, along with the rest of the heightened economic activity.

Some highlights aside from the new logo and look 馃憞

You don't really need alt-right if your mainstream-left is as dumb as a box of rock.

Polish Left MP Ma艂gorzata Prokop-Paczkowska has just commented a massacre of 750 people in Aksum church in Ethiopia: "why did Catholic church even go there? why didn't they respect local beliefs".

Christianity is present in Ethiopia since 3rd century, and it has nothing to do with "the Catholich Church" which only split in 11th century.

@vfrmedia that's from a Thames Valley Police letter they send to parents in Caversham regarding the recent murder. To be honest, I have no idea what they're talking about but I suppose there must be a totally toxic shitstorm now on Facebook now...

You say Bernie isn't a "real" socialist, then why is he quoting Marx's letters to Engels in this ad?

friendly reminder that:

- you do not need to think someone is the scum of the earth to block them or mute them
- being blocked or muted does not mean you are a bad person in any way shape or form
- you have a right to surround yourself with people you enjoy, indeed, you have a right to happiness
- people liking you doesn't mean you are a good person
- you liking something or someone doesn't mean that that thing is good

it is a misconception I think a lot of people hold, and it's not truth.
