Yeah she does not represent us, she is a moron and we have removed her from our mailing list so she no longer gets her birthday cards from Queen Clinton.
We don’t actually think those of you who have right leaning views are racists/neo-nazi’s or baby killers we just think you hold a different set of political beliefs that we happen to disagree with. We don’t all actually think that Trump is a Russian spy, we don’t think you all condone abuse (or discrimination) of women/minorities/lbgqt groups or other groups only that you support a guy whose record isn’t the best and it would be nice if you would acknowledge that at times.
Speaking of Trump, while we think he the embodiment of evil (Turns out Satan was an orange fat guy with small hands) we don’t actually think you lot are bad people for supporting him, he does have a few good ideas that he stole form us. We actually understand that for some of you his policies might be attractive for some very good reasons. For example, you might be against immigration because you feel this is having a negative impact on your ability to get a job or support him on taxes because its more cash for you.
Now Lord Soros also asked us to pass you on a message, we don’t really like it when you send us bombs in the post (not saying it was you lot but if any of you are thinking about it please don’t). We would also kindly ask that you stop calling us “Libtards” because we are actually quite a smart crowd of hippies. Speaking of which we were legalising the weed before you lot, so we would like some credit please.
Lastly believe it or not but we are not actually all shape-shifting reptilians, most of us are like you. We’re actually quite nice if you get to know us, like to party, enjoy long walks, doing what you do listening to pink Floyd. Most of us have jobs, like you, worry about the same things as you, have feelings like you, yeah so, we wouldn’t mind it if you would try to remember that we are individuals with individual views and beliefs. We will endeavour to treat you lot of scumbags with the kindness we expect from you.
We would like to add more but we are all now running late for your annual blood sacrifice of the straight white guy.
My dear chap, now look here. In the UK we do not elect a Prime Minister, we elect a ruling party. No one "elected" Gordon Brown, for instance. We are not a Republic.
Or are you referring to the Conservatives not having a majority? In that case, for your information, we have a "1st past the post" system so the Conservatives cosied up to the DUP to have a governable majority.
Now, we Brits will not take lectures on democracy from one our former colonies given the US's utter shambles of a broken democratic system and general pariah status.

The majority of blue collar workers are not knowledgeable or skilled. I've been watching a group of them struggle for the last 2 months at learning how to use a new piece of equipment in our factory. A piece of equipment that should have taken no longer than 5 minutes to understand. After 2 months the majority of them still can't find the on button. We have metrics on this type of stuff, documentation that is expected to take 1 minute to read is expected to take 1 week to actually learn.

Of course I do. It’s trivial, as is running and repairing the equipment we build.
I am not their manager, my job is a mix of automating substandard employees away and trying to come up with better teaching methods for the rest by writing software.
I don’t like seeing people unemployed but if they can’t outperform me with much less experience then competition says they should be replaced.
