A 180 On ADHD

There's a lot of theories abounding about why men are largely no longer participating in the world. The phenomenon does not just entail the school shooter, the incel or other wayward young men but is global and across age ranges. It's largely men you see selling things on the corner, living in a tent, dealing drugs or committing crimes. The phenomenon is literally called "failure to launch." Businesses have been set up to provide therapy for this "condition" and it's literally been called "failure to launch syndrome."

"Men on the Sidelines of American Life"

I blogged earlier here about how an article about the Biden administration's trucking initiative and the phenomenon of out of work men intersected got hysterically rejected.

Hello all!

I'm applying to remote work right now. I would like to use some of you as references, given that I have known you for a decade now and we have kept a dialogue going for years that has done nothing but progress. 

I once obtained a job by using Michael Maiello as a reference. Artappraiser, especially, let me know if you are willing. Please! I can be messaged at OrionXP61 at sign

Thank you.

Biden Administration Proposes Roosevelt Style Interventions Keep Trucking Industry Afloat

Dagblog is a progressive blog, so it's a bit easy to forget that it's a bit more on the conservative Democrat end of the spectrum. I sent some stuff to a progressive publisher that I knew would win with folks here but they didn't like it. Here it is for you guys, especially artappraiser, I know you will like it.

If you know anyone willing to publish work like this, please let me know.
