  1. Provide customer service for digital subscribers and registered users

    Oh you’re going to hear from me. Oh yes you are.

  2. Reason is monetizing… no more hat tips…

    How long until the comments are shut down? They’re not woke enough to be sustainable.

    1. They just want their cocktail party invites, am I right?

    2. I wouldn’t even come here if it weren’t for the comments.

      1. Funny, I come here for the ads…

        1. I didn’t miss the rug humper until he was gone.

  3. If OBL would turn coat … s/he is pretty good at the parody business, might make for an interesting marketing campaign.

    1. s/he is pretty good at the parody business

      lol no

      1. Thanks for recognizing what I do here isn’t parody at all.

          1. Who are we saying OBL is? That was AmSoc or Buttplug?

    2. 1. I’m not a parody.

      2. I’m non-binary and use they / them pronouns: If OBL would turn coat … they are pretty good …

        1. What does that mean? When did I ever lose a bet? I predicted there would be a #BlueTsunami and I was right.

        2. No way he’s Tony.

        3. “Pay your bet.”
          It’s not turd; he was not banned until long after OBL showed up
          And given that OBL left the ‘tell’ when I commented on Viet Nam, it’s a good bet it’s that scumbag commenter the commie kid (can’t remember the self-promoting handle; the on bragging about bailing on his mortgage).
          Regardless, it ain’t turd. It’s long since lost any novelty. It’s a one-trick pony with a used-up act.
          Not funny, not anything other than a waste of pixels.

          1. Honestly, though OBL may be one trick, they’re more coherent than Buttplug. I honestly don’t think he is capable of doing a different voice here.

            So that Magatrumpertarian guy, whatever it was called, that was parodying OBL was clearly Buttplug. He was incapable of putting together a barely coherent parody.

      1. I’m non-binary and use they / them pronouns

        If you’re a singular being, why should you use plural pronouns? Only symbiotic life forms and people with dissociated alternate personalities should use “they/them”.

        1. OBL is the voice of a new generation!

  4. Understanding of and commitment to our organizational mission and goals

    Pot, ass-sex and Mexicans?

    Leftist outreach?

    Market Progressivism?

    Grifting billionaires to dissemble center-right propaganda?

    One World Government?

    Libertarian-Democrat Jackalope ranching?

    1. I see you’re a long suffering visitor too.

  5. Hire someone who will get rid of the annoying popups at the bottom of the page.

    1. You should get an ad blocker.

      1. “You should get an ad blocker.”
        This is an “org” which depends on contributions. You would think they would make commenting very easy.
        They don’t, in fact, they make it among the worst experience compared to any site I visit, including expecting the commenter to ‘tinyURL’ an addy.
        Reason at one time got a ‘sizable’ annual contribution from me; it now gets a contribution just big enough to make it clear that the site sucks. Like leaving a $1 tip.
        No, neither I nor anyone else should get anything to post here. And until Reason cleans up its act, they will get $1, annually.

  6. I’m more of a beer guy than a cocktail guy.

    1. Are you talking about Natty Lite, hold the can with one hand while scratching your nuts with the other type of beer, or a locally-sourced microbrew craft beer sipped from a glass?

      1. Can’t a person enjoy beer without being a hick or a hipster douche?

        1. Sure, but stereotypes are more fun – or annoying depending on your definition.

      2. I’m enjoying a local IPA at a Doom metal convert in Denver, as. We. Speak.

        1. Perhaps enjoying is a strong word. Drinking is probably the correct term.

  7. OT:
    “The Era Of Easy Recycling May Be Coming To An End”
    “For those of us who spent most of our lives painstakingly separating plastic, glass, paper and metal, single-stream recycling is easy to love. No longer must we labor. Gone is the struggle to store two, three, four or even five different bags under the kitchen sink. Just throw everything into one dumpster, season liberally with hopes and dreams, and serve it up to your local trash collector. What better way to save the planet?”

    FFS, a better way to ‘save the planet’ is for you and every one of your pathetic accomplices to commit suicide right now and leave ‘the planet’ to those who can read.

  8. Hmm,
    let us try this once more.

    I will say this. I already pay money to get a recycling bin. People might act like someone is a jackass for not doing it. But I can’t blame anyone for not wanting to spend money, so they can put forth more effort to sort their trash. So the city can, supposedly sell the trash.

    We really have to ask the question, if they’re not actually profiting or even breaking even on the reclyling, is this actually a worthwhile endeavor?

    1. It doesn’t have to profitable to be worthwhile in the long run. Solid waste disposal companies need someplace to put the trash. Landfills eventually fill up and can’t take any more. Opening a new landfill is a tortuous, decades-long nightmare as regulators, politicians, and NIMBYs mau-mau the plan screaming NO! The less stuff the companies have to landfill, the longer the landfill lasts, and the longer they can stay in business, or at least avoid the clusterfuck of trying to get a new landfill approved. If they can keep significant amounts of recyclable material from going into their landfill and extend its life, that can be a smart decision even if they’re taking a loss on the recycling.

      1. You’re referring to a political problem, not a physical one.
        I’d rather avoid paying for snowflake sensibilities if I can; stuff it down their throats.

        1. It’s not just snowflakes. NO ONE wants a landfill in their neighborhood. Anywhere you propose to site it, 100% of the locals will rise up in opposition.

  9. I essentially started three weeks past and that i makes $385 benefit $135 to $a hundred and fifty consistently simply by working at the internet from domestic. I made ina long term! “a great deal obliged to you for giving American explicit this remarkable opportunity to earn more money from domestic. This in addition coins has adjusted my lifestyles in such quite a few manners by which, supply you!”. go to this website online domestic media tech tab for extra element thank you .

  10. I’ll do it. It’s got to be a step up from posting all this MeSalary spam for 10 cents an hour.
