I'm sick and tired of the terms 'liberal' and 'conservative'. Can't you just see they are used to divide us? 'Liberal' mostly stands for freedom but now a days is used against freedom. The term 'liberal' gun laws is a paradox. Liberal really means hardly too no government regulation, but these days people are getting it confused with authoritarianism. I avoid these terms because I have come to realize they change every decade. Back in the day the 'conservatives' where the ones trying to censor speech and expression, the whole thing has flipped upside down.

Own the word, change the meaning, control the narrative.

Right out of the Orwellian how-to guide-book.

People are confused when I use the phrase "liberal gun laws" because I use it to mean loose, free, or otherwise unrestricted gun laws. In a sentence: Texas and Michigan have fairly liberal gun laws. It's just intuitively correct.

We are naturally divided by things such as the desires to extinguish self-defense and the desire to defend ourselves. What these terms do is divide politics in a different way and provide a linguistic handle on the divide to control it.

Labels aren't the problem, but using over-worn labels which are just weapons for the enemy may be a big problem. It's useful to reason about our own ideas in abstractions.

Working out your notice is doing them a favor. Why are you doing them a favor, why not simply refuse to enter the premises?

If this gets enough attention, it is hardly doing dick's a favor.

Any time you work out your notice you are giving your employer time to reschedule shifts and hire your replacement, you're making the experience as stress free for them as possible. If you walk out you leave them with a problem, they need to make special arrangements.

Anyone in management may be annoyed about your reason for leaving to make a political point, they may decide to forcibly stamp their point over yours by using that 2 weeks to make false accusations or stitch you up. You might think that all your colleagues are good guys but are you so sure about their political positions? There's no quicker way of making enemies than taking a firm political stance. If I was going to work my last 2 weeks I'd do it wearing a camera for my own safety, although to be honest I'd rather pull my own teeth out than risk going back on the premises after handing in my notice.

Dick thinks his customers are gun grabbing Starbuck's flits?

Another corporation looking for business losses for tax purposes?

Just another business alienating their primary customer base just to pander to people who aren't going to buy their products

If I had a gun store or hunting store I would 100% offer this guy a job at equal or greater pay.
