2018 Geology Rocks Talk


#41

Just go to the GoFundMe website and search for “furloughed”. Each campaign has a short narrative written by the person needing help. Last time I looked there were ~ 600 campaigns to choose from.

Update: as of 19:50 on January 21 there are 738 campaigns.

Ouch! That’s a lot of desperate people! Okay, thanks.


#43

The impression I get from the news here is that you are all being held to ransom :unamused:


#44

Agreed … but perhaps I’d prefer that to our Brexit fiasco. Pone of us are nerfect!


#45

Yeh, I should have tagged on “too” at the end of that sentence…we can empathise :rofl:


#46

I agree…“hostages” …is the word I hear most. To the outside, it seems so unfair that millions of people will suffer consequences for one person’s determination to have what he believes is the solution to a non existent problem. We have had the discussion that maybe it is more about a promise to one of the colleagues that their company (or his own) would get the contract.

EDIT: Maybe TN could flag all of the employees and trickling businesses it is affecting and that will have some affect on the general public to support a “back to work legislation” (not sure if that is what it is there…would be here).

And to stay on topic…a rock wall?


#47

Yes, it’s always about money, it’s all about the money and what the politicians and purse strings can get out of it. Instead of democracy it should be called money-ocracy.

And just to be sure we are staying on-topic. . . after all we are being stuck between a rock and a hard place after all :smirk: :laughing:


#48

I thing we’re on the same stellar wave length there :laughing:


#49

I think so…there is no emoji for “rock” or “wall”…we may have to rely on you for those Em!


#50

Rock1 How about these BrickWall%20Dash … best I could do at short notice :wink: :laughing:


#51

Love it!!! Perfect!!!


#52

We’d be working on that campaign longer than H. Maria! :open_mouth: :laughing:

Now that’s an easy way to stay on topic! (Smart too!)

Okay you two! Now you’re starting to sound like my father! :laughing:


#53

possibly…but a great “visual” for those that don’t seem to understand how this is affecting workers, and businesses connected.


#54

Visually, we could probably just “paint” 3/4 of the country a different color/colour. Much easier and faster. But then again… not much fun.

To stay on topic, can I take a poke at it? If we took all of the tags for a campaign such as this and threw them all together, it would look like a pile of rocks. Okay, not as funny… because you two used all the good ones. :rofl:


#55

The system just told me I downloaded local images on that last statement???
(rocks in its system! :wink:)


#56

ROCKS RULE!!!

From a list of reminders from the ethics office sent to federal employees today :roll_eyes:


#57

ROCKS RULE!!!

—————

Maybe someone will start a Super PAC…:face_with_monocle:


#58

Maybe the ethics office should take another close look at a certain hotel in DC and a few other things that’s been going on the past 2 years. I guess limiting a furloughed employee to 10 free sandwiches (max) for an entire year is there way of telling them they’re… (I better stop here before I get myself into trouble :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: - even though a certain cat is still ill.) :innocent: :smile_cat:
