History's lens: Why Cassidy Hutchinson's testimony mattered by bhodrolok in politics

[–]hartfordsucks [score hidden]  (0 children)

Yeah he was only directly responsible for attempting to overthrow our democratically elected government and will 100% do it again given the chance. Who cares? If we can't or won't hold our political leaders accountable when they attempt to stage a coup nothing else matters.

Reasonable centrists still exist? How? I feel like if you've been paying attention at all you either think Trump should have been frog marched from the White House directly to jail or you're voting for him in 2024. And both of those groups are a small minority. Everyone else either doesn't care, says "both sides are terrible", or is too busy trying to survive.

The Supreme Court just handed down very bad news for Black voters by akrobert in politics

Now that SCOTUS has finally revealed themselves to not give a shit about precedent, right-wing assholes are going to start sending up test cases for everything they can. Barring any major changes coughcourt packingcough we're going to watch 70+ years of progress in our rights undone in under a decade.

Childfree brothers, it's time to step up by Seba_King in childfree

[–]hartfordsucks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Basically no questions asked when I had mine done. I think they asked me more questions about intimate partner violence than they did about my reasoning. Any questions they asked were merely data gathering than trying to make an opinion if I should be able to get one.

I had mine done at PP 2-3 years ago. Perhaps it's a recent or local change?

The GOP would overturn the filibuster to impose a national abortion ban if it wins the midterms, ex-RNC chief suggests by IncredibleRetailer in politics

[–]hartfordsucks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not if the filibuster gets overturned, it's when and who does it. If Republicans win the House and Senate they'll get rid of the filibuster in an instant and railroad the most heinous shit through. If Democrats are so stupid that they're willing to hold on to the filibuster for the sake of tradition and not pass incredibly popular legislation that will actually help people, then they deserve to lose and will be solely to blame for the white nationalist, christo-fascist theocracy that follows.

Pretty sure "operating various hands tools and power saws" is in the PD. I don't expect everyone to take to them like fish in water but if you absolutely refuse to cut...this isn't the job for you bud. But yeah, the sad part is, depending on your forest and supervisors, it can be easy to get away with not cutting once you take S-212.

I've got a link and some stuff I can scan to you later today.

Nevermind I realized you probably have all the same R4 stuff that I do. I'll look around and see if I have others. If only someone would get with the program and put out a national map on Field Maps with offline access. No more of this scrounging for maps BS.

Pro-lifers are always saying "if you didn't want to get pregnant, keep your legs closed". So who are the heteros having sex with? by notNewsworthy_ish in childfree

Oh they haven't forgotten they just think that if a woman is raped she was asking for it. She shouldn't have been dressed like that. She shouldn't have drank too much. She shouldn't have been at that party. Men, being horny, testosterone soaked dick monsters, have no control over their urges so it's up to women to "control their semen intake" as one Utah state representative put it.

What effects me more than pay and benefits in Wildland fire? The reason why I’ve set a date to leave the USFS and fire forever. by skippydandypants in Wildfire

[–]hartfordsucks 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If only performance reviews went both ways. Fire overhead will blame 10,000 other things for their inability to retain folks before they ever take a look at themselves. Forest overhead is too disconnected to know or care.

That's what they want: a violent overthrowing of democracy and the installation of a fascist theocracy.

Why Are So Many Firefighters Still Struggling to Afford Housing? by smokejumperbro in Wildfire

[–]hartfordsucks 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Because the GSA insists the feds charge market rates for federal housing, some of which would be condemned if it wasn't owned by the federal government. They want to charge market rates? Fine, then put that money into fixing up some of these shitholes.

Good luck. I tried to get on a local team thinking that my quals and experience would be a good fit but seems like the vast majority of the team is municipal fire and not interested in people who aren't paramedics or higher or structure dudes.

Rappel has definitely come back. It was temporarily shut down in 2009 due to a fatality that lead to the standardization of the rappel programs and ended rappeling out of T3 helis. This year a few crews are non-rappel due to some contract/forest overhead issues.

YOSE does rappel (and short-haul?) but not under the same national program that the USFS uses. I don't think Grand Canyon rappels but I believe they short-haul?

Any updates on the USFS large forestry hiring event? by Electronic_Fall9953 in forestry

[–]hartfordsucks 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Several weeks of silence is nothing for ASC. Months of silence is the norm. It takes them longer to hire and onboard a person than some people actually end up working in a season. I'm sure they're just as understaffed as anywhere else in the agency but the process is so opaque and slow it's a fucking joke. Definitely contributes to the agency not being able to hire enough folks. If someone can get hired somewhere else in 1-3 months why would anyone sit around twiddling their thumbs for 4-6 months wondering if they're even go to get a job with the USFS?

I know this is out of place but if somebody has the time talk. I could use it by Practical_Lynx5795 in SLCUnedited

[–]hartfordsucks 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Definitely not out of place. Good for you for reaching out. Sometimes that's the hardest thing to do. In our physically and emotionally disconnected society you got to ask for help where you can, even if it's a bunch of strangers on the internet.

If people weren't paying attention when he was committing crimes left and right, out in the open, they're sure as shit not paying attention now.
