I get what you’re saying, and toxicity is exhausting. But at the same time, you need to understand that you can say these things because they don’t matter that much to you? Everything is “just politics” until they actually affect your life. I know a guy, undocumented. He can’t go “eyyyy immigration reform, let’s all just relax a bit! Why get so worked up?” He has a wife and a kid. I have a friend who is biting and clawing to cobble together a living, working multiple part time jobs. She’d like to change jobs, but it’s exhausting finding a new one while working two. And she needs the health insurance one of them gives her. It’s not even that great IMO! Socialized medicine is literally something that would change her life. I could go on. People who don’t care about abortion rights until suddenly your daughter or mistress needs one. People who roll their eyes at farm subsidies because they haven’t had their family farm sold off in pieces. It matters. And it sucks, I know, because it’s exhausting and the whole point of our government is that we’re supposed to elect people who can worry about these things! But they’re all pretty awful too, even the ones who tend to agree with you.

Totally agree! I appreciate your post and it helped formulate why I’m frustrated. I think a lot of my frustration stems from the inefficiencies and drama in government. For example, my bf is in the green card process. Our former president messed something up in the immigration areas so his process has been delayed months (if not years) longer than others before him. Why worsen a non contradictory immigration process? And for illegals why not open the process to them so they can live in a country they want to while contributing towards the economy? I could not agree more on healthcare. I actually considered moving to Canada a couple of years ago. Being in NYC our income taxes are actually pretty close (just the Canadian version of sales tax is higher), but they get free healthcare out of their taxes. Any Canadian or European I’ve spoken to is a fan of their healthcare (South Africans not so much but there’s a lot going on in their government, so I imagine they’re an exception) and I don’t understand the people who are strongly against it here. My theory is these people have never had a conversation with a European/Canadian relating to healthcare. In Canada they spend less on defense and more on healthcare and simply making their people happy. Their politics aren’t a daily soap opera. I think this is what I’m seeking ultimately. Abortion- agreed. Govt should be less in our business and let us be happy to do what we want. Not sure why conservative officials want to control this so much, what do they get out of it exactly. It seems like an inefficiency that isn’t improving anyone’s way of life. If abortion was made illegal is bible thumping Karen’s life going to be any better? No she’ll find something else to be up in peoples business about. Anyway, such a tangent, but helped organize my thoughts a bit. Maybe I move to Canada.

Hi fishes, I am currently working with a Top medical device Org but currently there is no learning & no scope of growth here. On the other hand I received a big offer from a startup, which is doing good in India. So my question is, is it a good step to move from a Big US MNC to an Indian Startup ( doing pretty well). Will my profile be hampered when working with startup?
