I've been hearing more extinction bursts from the right-wing hold outs. I've had a bunch of people complain lately that I'm "spinning" when I post -- tautologically true, of course, since subjectivity is always slippery and always present and, as tautological, their attempted critique is as trivial as it is contrived... probably by others.
Yeah, whatever. What's interesting is the burst of people using the phrase. They always come in bunches. Makes me suspect, maybe Glenn Beck must've trotted it out as their latest retreat-meme.
Anyway, another one of the extinction burst memes has been to turn up the anti-union noise machine -- must be nice to be happily middle class and never have had to take mountains of sh*t from a corporation to keep your family alive. For the rest of America, there's this nice reminder:
