So we boycott clients, vendors and agencies that had high ranking employees attend the coup right? Like no brainer, hands in, don’t give them money, right?

I can’t imagine any agency person that is that far right leaning. Honestly. Have never met that person

I can introduce you to my ownership...

No, more like, we sit and cheer when these people are unceremoniously fired from their jobs, then continue working with the rest of the clients and vendors who didn’t participate in an attempted coup.


No. In the same way we don’t fire people who show up for other protests in which a small contingent turns destructive or violent. It was a protest that turned into an angry mob but there were many other people there who didn’t. It was an organized protest. We can’t have double standards when it suits us or we disagree with the intent of the protest. And you lost certainly shouldn’t hold any one OTHER than that person accountable for their own views which they expressed in their downtime.


This was an attempted coup, not a protest. Photographs showed some rioters were carrying plastic handcuffs. Rioters had automatic weapons. Pipe bombs were found.

They were going to take Pence, senators and congresspeople hostage. Or maybe even kill them. With the legislative branch in turmoil and the votes not certified, then the president could claim emergency power.

This was not a “protest.”




Who was at the coup?


I mean, if it was an egregious move of stupidity, we could ask questions. Like, purely theoretically, let’s imagine a high-level exec who was simultaneously put in charge of the vendor’s diversity initiatives (which somehow mysteriously only ever benefited white women), and who posted photos of herself inside the Capitol building during the insurrection. Inquiring minds might then ask, after looking at said theoretical woman’s social media footprint over the last few years, why this person was tasked with managing the company, much less put in charge of diversity initiatives unless it was to create the illusion of a smokescreen, or ever allowed in the vicinity of any POC or LGBTQ, coworkers or clients or otherwise. It might call into question the vendor’s very culture and way of doing business, and allowing business to be done. Theoretically, of course.


@president 1 -
just a reminder - men oppressing women needs to stop. the fact that white women are now the problem is continuing their oppression.



Yep. Vote against a coup with your pocketbook.

Hey fellow Disney Lovers,

I generally have a few lessons in which I can use Pixar shorts to teach students how to identify and discuss literary signposts, how to identify and explain the development of theme, character traits, and other narrative elements. What are some of your favorite shorts? I am trying to incorporate activities where my students get to choose their own clips for independent practice with these skills and need a variety to draw from.

Moving from Denver to LA. What are the cleanest parts of LA? My girlfriend lives in North Hollywood right now and it’s dirty IMO compared to where I lived in Denver (LoDo, LoHi area).

I also have a large dog so I’d like a walkable area with a lot of green space, restaurants, etc.
