No, this is bullshit. Conflating the stupid fucks in those other states vs this is like comparing a sniper who got a confirmed kill to street bangers who got arrested for failing to break into a police car.

Matt is an old school Greenwald style reporter. He's gonna dig and follow the story wherever it goes, even though he is anti-MAGA.

He is anti-censorship first and foremost and he hates the new left with a burning fiery passion of a thousand suns.

Some of you are viewing this as an attack on Trump.

I'm pretty sure it is an attack on Twitter.

Watch what regulators say in the next week.

Oh, almost forgot:

This is the full text of the bill. It was literally a clean resolution:

(1) Amend section 1—

(A) by redesignating subsection (b) as subsection (c); and

(B) by inserting after subsection (a) the following:

“(b) Paid Sick Leave.—

“(1) IN GENERAL.—Any tentative agreements, side letters, or local carrier agreements entered into by the parties and ratified before the date of enactment of this joint resolution and the tentative agreements, side letters, and local carrier agreements made binding by subsection (a) shall, beginning 60 days after the date of enactment of this joint resolution, provide—

“(A) for 7 days of paid sick leave annually, except that nothing in this subparagraph shall supersede any existing labor agreement between such parties that provides for more than 7 days of paid sick leave annually; and

“(B) that the use of any 7 days of paid sick leave annually, regardless of whether such days are provided under a tentative agreement, side letter, or local carrier agreement or under an existing labor agreement described in subparagraph (A), will not result in any points, demerits, or disciplinary citations under any party's attendance policy.

“(2) EFFECT.—The modification referenced in paragraph (1) shall each have the same effect as though arrived at by agreement of such parties under the Railway Labor Act (45 U.S.C. 151 et seq.).”.

(2) Redesignate section 2 as section 3.

(3) After section 1, insert the following:

“SEC. 2. NEGOTIATIONS AND ARBITRATION.

“(a) Negotiations.—The parties to the disputes subject to Presidential Emergency Board No. 250, established pursuant to Executive Order 14077 of July 15, 2022, shall negotiate the implementation of the 7 days of paid sick leave imposed on such parties by section 1(b).

“(b) Binding Arbitration.—If, after 30 days after the date of enactment of this joint resolution, the parties are not able to reach agreement on the matter described in subsection (a), such parties shall enter into binding arbitration on such matter to provide for a final resolution of such unresolved matter.

“(c) Arbitration.—The arbitration described in subsection (b) shall be conducted pursuant to the provisions of section 7 of the Railway Labor Act (45 U.S.C. 157), and any award shall be enforceable under section 9 of the Railway Labor Act (45 U.S.C. 159), except that, in the public interest, compensation and expenses of the arbitrators shall be borne equally by the parties.

“(d) Deadline.—Not later than 60 days after the date of enactment of this joint resolution, any binding arbitration proceeding entered into pursuant to subsection (b) shall be completed, including issuance of any award by the arbitration board.”.

Passed the House of Representatives November 30, 2022.

Why is it that every politico named Wiener or phonetically similar to that turns out to be a creeper or pedo?

Rail workers opt out of several government programs when they sign on with the railroad companies.

Among them is Social Security.

You don't qualify for benefits under railroad retirement until 10 years of service minimum and if you leave before that, you obviously don't have any social security credits for that time frame.

Sick days and on call times are also "special" the more you dig into it.

While technically covered by FMLA, most rail companies force employees to go to court to get covered under it after the fact.

tl;dr, it's a real fucking mess.

More to the point, in this entire contract renegotiation, the union bosses, rail companies, and Biden administration were working in lockstep to shove the Biden contract down everyone's throats by fucking with the voting systems in the unions, hiding rules, refusing to release contract details until after they voted on it, etc.

The vote fraud alone should be a reason for Republicans to be demanding a yes vote on this followed by a special investigation into the Biden administration's meddling in union voting processes.

I had a 14 pro max order that I cancelled. Was tempted to give them a chance but then all this blew up and I yeeted that order. Thank God for supply chain issues giving me time to regret my purchase, LOL.

Now moving to grapheneos.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my thoughts on this in the spirit they are written.

I agree that as an elected official I don't think she stands a chance outside of her island. That said, there may be an opportunity for her to help move Hawaii out of the DNC stranglehold.

DJTJR was also on Tucker, as was Greenwald.

He is, for better or worse, one of the last few outposts on tradmedia where people who get cancelled can still have a voice.

I'll reiterate that the point of this post was to have a discussion in which we assume good faith on her part for the point of discussing where she would fit into an America First agenda.

Yes, I know this is an unpopular subject, but someone once reminded me that everyone has to have at least some chance at redemption, so I figured discussion from a game theory perspective might be useful.

  1. Trump is fallible
  2. Trump relies on those who work for him
  3. Trump can be lied to.

Ergo:

When it comes to personal decisions regarding your body, that's a you problem, not a Trump problem.

Most of them weren't docs, but woke nurses.

And no, it is not bad that you hope that they reap consequences for their actions.

I take every opportunity to remind my leftist acquaintances when the next boosters come out (so literally every quarter I'm encouraging them to get clotted up)

The damage they have done to individuals and the world is simply not calculable. Hellfire is too good for them.

Should we all mass-report the ADL account as "spreading hate"?

This is why I get copies of med records before I leave facilities.

This is why I get badge numbers of police and plates of police cars.

You can get told "that data doesn't exist" right up until you provide your copy at which point the other party shits their pants.

The USD doesn't have an unlimited supply cap, that's why we literally have gov shutdowns every 6 years or so.
