My older sister, a life coach (HA) and her hubs is batsh*t cray. They and their 8 kids, yes, EIGHT kids, have this compound thing going in FLA and believe in ALL THINGS QAnon. 🤦🏻‍♀️ FOX News isn’t conservative enough for them. They gaslight and make me feel like I’M the crazy one. I’m done arguing and trying to save those poor children.

If it bothers you that much I’d go no contact. If they aren’t abusing their kids there’s not much you can do. There’s nothing inherently wrong with having a lot of kids or being conservative. People are entitled to their beliefs and lifestyle choices.

I’m in the same boat with my brother. I just don’t talk to him or his wife anymore 🤷‍♀️. When my partner sent the family group text a recent article on Delta and vaccines (he’s an epidemiologist and professor in public health) they went off on this giant rant about how the government isn’t going to force them to wear masks or get vaccines because big pharma blah blah blah and how prayers were going to protect them. Yeah good luck with that ya’ll. I legitimately just ignore them. It causes too much contention in our family. Eventually the pandemic will end but he’ll still be my brother. Until that day comes though, I just don’t engage and won’t see them in person.

Same with a couple of friends of mine. Don’t have time for that sh!t. “Big tech”, “big pharma” blah blah blah. Bore off and get on with living life and try fitting in with society

There’s nothing inherently wrong with having 8 children. The Qanon stuff is obviously not very cash money, but otherwise?

@Associate 1 who hurt you? My husband is 1 of 9 and would disagree. His parents gave each child plenty of love and attention.

What’s wrong with being conservative? Or having a big family?

Pwc2 is gaslighting dog whistling central. Unless you’re telling me that 1. Mother and father are equally important and by that I mean two parents when they can create a more stable household than one regardless of gender 2. Hard work is important and so is a social safety net 3. Where you stray from my ideas, we can discuss and find resolution rather than impasse bc these are personal beliefs not economic or International policy Finally it’s nigh impossible to believe someone living in the US or consuming US coverage doesn’t know what qanon is but has the above definition of conservative

Lol. OP. I understand that most people aligned to QAnon are republicans, but the adherents of QAnon are a completely different class of people. Most conservatives are not crazy and still champion conservative policies. So I don’t think it’s fair to club the two together.

It seems like you're trying to push your opinions on them and a bit jealous at that.

D4, I was expressing my own opinion in response to a suggestion that someone might be jealous. They might be? Or they might not be? If it were me in that situation I certainly wouldn’t be. Nowhere in my post did I say “everyone should feel sorry for them,” now did I? I fully appreciate that a hoard of kids sounds appealing to some people. Otherwise why would they have them

I’m so sorry OP. That’s really hard.

HBO just did a 6 part docuseries on Qanon. It was really engaging and they basically find out who a was and it’s all BS. I doubt it would persuade them but great TV.

Whenever I see posts like this I can’t help but think that the OP is dramatic and embellishing the facts all because someone has a different opinion than them. My brother is anti-vax. Nothing I can do about it - he is an educated adult and if he chooses to interpret the science and risks differently than me so be it. Life is too short to spend it on worrying about other people. Recognize there are differences and nobody is going to see eye to eye on every single topic. Worry about yourself and enjoy life!

Would you take a job with this many red flags if you were desperate to get out of public? If so, what salary/comp would you need? 1. I’m interviewing for an Assistant Controller role at a medium-sized manufacturing company. 2. The interview process has consisted of 7 rounds (2 phone interviews and 5 separate Teams calls). 3. I’ve had to prepare multiple PowerPoint presentations. 4. The job positions of the VP of Finance and Controller (both of whom I interviewed) were just posted LinkedIn.

So i have been fortunate that i have managed to go through my career without the need for a degree. I was lucky enough to have been hired by one of the worlds top consulting firms, worked with a whole lot of big clients and travelled a lot. It's gotten to the point where I am not even asked about the lack of a degree on my resume. Personally though, it bothers me. I have a whole bunch of certifications in my industry…but just no formal degree. (cont'd)
