Like clockwork

I applied for a bunch of jobs last week and like clockwork, I get a notification from LinkedIn that 7 people have reviewed my profile. Like my resume wasn’t enough to tell them exactly what they needed to know, they go straight to LinkedIn to dig.

🙄

Yes, I know I can buy the premium subscription to find out who these people are. Don’t think I haven’t considered it.

*************

A recent poll showed that 73% of Trump voters believe that the election was stolen from him.

That’s 74 million voters * .73 = 54,020,000 million Trump voters.

A loss of roughly 20,000,000 voters.

Progress.

We may break this delusion yet or lower the number of deluded to a more manageable percent.

(I’m a half full person)

  1. From Alternet:

    In other words, a Republican lawyer, for all practical purposes, just admitted before the Supreme Court that Republicans would never hold the White House or either house of Congress again, nor, presumably, many state governorships and legislatures, if not for voter suppression and gerrymandering.

    Apparently, Republican politicians are just fine with “affirmative action” for themselves.

    Of course, political realities must not be allowed to force the Republican Party to change its ideology, or the Supreme Sin of Amurkan political culture might happen–the raising of taxes on the affluent and richer-than-affluent. 😡

    • Also of course, the mainstream media will soft-pedal this, as it would not do to make the general public so angry that they vote in Democrats, who might then raise taxes on wealthy media owners and affluent higher-ranking media employees.

    • Well said, IBW.

      I consider gerrymandering a form of voter suppression. When districts are purposely created to make Democratic voters the minority, it serves to cancel out the power of their vote. The way the GOP has shaped districts in my state is surreal. Dali could not have done a better job.

    • I’m so glad you get it. It’s all about the money. The Big Money. The rest is just a smokescreen.

  2. Well, at least you know that they wanted to follow up. But of course your resume, which is surely impressive, ought to be enough to warrant an interview by itself.

    i thought Linkedin was free, but I guess they could not make money if it were. One might think that a regular subscription would be enough to allow someone to see who viewed their profile, isn’t that the entire point of the site? How can you link, if you can’t tell who is interested in linking?

    I hope that at least some of these firms follow up with you, and maybe you can choose. Wouldn’t that be nice? You deserve it. I wonder what your criteria would be for the best of the available jobs, if you do get to choose.

    • LinkedIn is free. But that’s just the basic level. If you want to see who is coming to snoop your profile, you only get a notification. You have to pay for a premium account to see the names and corporations.

  3. Cuomo needs to resign at this point. It’s making a mockery of sexual assault and MeToo, we are expending too much time and effort defending Cuomo who isn’t worth defending (especially after the nursing home scandal which killed thousands) it’s taking our energy from issues that need serious effort and focus. The focus right now needs to be on helping Biden enact crucial legislation during this first year. We need the stimulus, we need an expansion of vaccine sites etc, we need to get back to work!

    We know republicans are completely shameless and won’t hold their own to the same standard… but NY is a blue state… we don’t *need* Cuomo, NY can easily elect a democratic (& hopefully female) governor who isn’t going to sexually harass people and act like a creepy uncle. Think of how much time we’ve wasted and what we could’ve accomplished if we didn’t have to deal with male politicians sex scandals… this is why we need more women in leadership. Also, I resent the fact that Katie Hill is getting lumped into this mess. She doesn’t deserve this.

    • Excellent comments. Cuomo’s non-apology apologies have failed to impress me. Obviously I need to lighten up and smile more, right? I don’t think so.

      The massive nursing home Covid death cover-up is enough for me to say Cuomo needs to resign. His actions were criminal. Every time I see his face, I think of those poor nursing home patients and their grieving families. It makes me sick at heart. He does not deserve to hold a position of power.

      • The people doing damage control and trying to call his actions ‘flirting’ is really leaving a bad, bad taste in my mouth and splitting the party. It’s not going to end well unless we abandon this sinking ship… I don’t get it. We don’t need him. He’s not a great politician. He takes bribes, he’s actually bought off. And they claimed Hillary was the bought off one 🙄 I don’t remember her taking hush money contrary to her detractors

        Hell, Hillary was abandoned for not conceding a race she won more votes in… thinking back to that South Dakota primary night. Forever etched into my mind. Bottom line men like Cuomo are allowed to f*ck up royally and incur body counts.
