I honestly don't care if they got paid or not. It's the "not paid and told attendance was mandatory" part that's a real sticker.


Except that's the part that is the most factually questionable from the story. The author of the article claims this was the case, but the only supporting evidence for that is a very strange and contradictory quote from some mine spokesman. On the other side, you have a direct report from the wife of a mine worker who did not attend the event and was not punished in any way. So either what they were required to attend is something other than the event *or* it wasn't really mandatory at all.

In any case, if that's the real sticker for you, this would seem to be a lot of outrage over nothing at all.

You need to brush up on identifying outrage, I suspect.

And yet, you still spent the better part of a page insisting that this really was some horrible miscarriage of justice against those poor mine workers.

Four posts, two of which were one-liners?

Man, you really have a low threshold for "outrage". Judging from your tendency to write five paragraphs over anything, I'm guessing your standard mood is... apoplectic?

Joph thats not fair, he dosen't know what apoplectic means.

Also I agree with the comparison but who cares, Biden knocked it out of the park.
