Ink It Onto Your Knuckles – Carillion Is How Neoliberalism Lives and Breathes

When right-wing economists tell me there is no such thing as neoliberalism – that it is a figment of the left’s imagination, a meaningless insult or a catch-all phrase – from now I’m just going say the word Carillion. In fact, if it would fit, I would get the word tattooed across my knuckles.

There's so many nuances with this clusterfuck I don't know where to start.


This WH can't even take responsibility for fucking up a conference call. This would literally be a non issue if it happened under Bush or Obama. What the fuck?

This conference call is ILLEGITIMATE and FAKE NEWS

I am honestly shocked that a staffer used such language for a goddamn conference call. It's like they have autistic Holla Forumstards running this shit.

You mean to tell me the current administration is incompetent???

The government shutdown drama is fascinating. I feel we're truly at the breaking point.

I won't do that but I will say it's a douche move the guy who posted a vid of him with his gf which probably was his ex at the time in the first place which is probably how it started.

When did most of y'all first get laid? I was 15. I didn't have good sex until I was 17 though.

First time at 15. First good sex was at 16. Didn't actually get somewhat good at sex until 16 or 17 though.

This isn't even about age of consent (15 is legal in Denmark), but rather about insane pre-internet "child" pornography laws that set the age limit higher than age of consent itself.

Yeah I guess I had some fun when I was 16. I was pretty trash though. The sex I had at 15 wasn't even worth it though. Cringy as fuck to think back on.
