'Thanks' or 'thank you' would be the polite response

This is literally what I did except I went with a TA 392. Congrats on defending Dr!

What do you mean? I'm no expert, but I've done some research on the affects of GMO crops and such. From my understanding, people are far less likely to be deficient in key nutrients today than what they were in the past. Also, are you saying that people who overconsume due to food addiction need to eat that much? That seems a bit bizarre considering mortality rates and such.

Not who you were replying to, but what they are talking about is how we've depleted nutrients from the soil. The plants we are growing contain fewer key macro- and micronutrients because we've stripped them out of the ground (https://consciousplanet.org/) < for more info

Bring back manufacturing jobs to replace the service ones.

To be clear, this will never again happen, but that is how to do it.

Edit: The reason I say it'll never happen would take forever to write. But primarily because corporations can do it much cheaper overseas, because younger generations of Americans look down on factory jobs and because it would raise the cost of most goods due to higher labor cost.

Alternatively, our schools can focus on actual useful skills like coding and software development. But again, this also won't happen.

As a younger American, I don't look down on factory jobs - I look down on what factory jobs offer. If you can make $40-65/hr pretty easily in a service industry and only $20-25/hr in a factory, no one will take the factory job.

Take My Power

Inflation adjusted effort. Why work hard when your purchasing power disappears more and more every year as your joke of a "pay raise" doesn't even come close to parity with core CPI inflation (which is also manipulated to be as low as possible anyway, and doesn't reflect the actual inflation rate). It's wage theft by any other measure. Incrementally higher employer expectations with increasingly less pay year after year via invisible means. Fuck it. Check out. Do as little as you can and collect that paycheck. Forget homeownership, that ship sailed long ago. Congratulations if you bought before covid. All stick, no carrot. Why bother playing a rigged game?
