Republicans have always hated women

A refresher….

Here’s what the video says ....

Republican women let's chat.
So in 1974 you had to have a man cosign on any kind of contract for you to be able to do fugging anything. Women tried to fight against this to have autonomy over their own finances and what did Republicans do? They voted against the Equal Credit Act.

In 1978 it was completely legal to fire a woman for becoming pregnant. And again women fought against this and Republicans voted against the Pregnancy Act.

In 1980 it was completely OK for you to be sexually harassed in the workplace. So again women fought against this and what did Republicans do? They voted against the Sexual Harassment in the Workplace Act.

In 1994 women were seeking justice for domestic violence. So what did Republicans do? They voted against the Violence Against Women Act .

In 2012 women were asking for equal pay for equal work and in turn Republicans voted against the Equal Pay for Equal Work Act
Also in 2012 when the Violence Against Women Act was up for reauthorization Republicans voted against it again.

And that brings us to today when women are just fighting to have the right over their own privacy and over their own reproductive health, what are Republicans actively doing? They're trying to take away not only the right over your own reproductive health but the right of privacy over your own health choices.

Republicans have always hated women.

Why the fuck are you voting Republican as a woman?

Why would he** not just turn the docs in?

He could’ve copied them all and still turned them in by now.

Nobody had to “rat” him out. He KNEW the DOJ knew he had them.

So why basically lure the DOJ to his doorstep?

The unquenchable narcissistic thirst for attention? Shits and giggles? Grifting? He’s basically getting free publicity for his socmedia platform. This is not just about those documents for him.

Pet peeve #46: Cashier expects tip

The new registers where cashiers turn the screen and ask you to sign after a purchase are annoying.

The screen asks you whether you want to tip while the cashier stares at you to see if you do. It’s a scam. How about employers start paying employees adequately instead of turning them into beggars?

Bank of America memo hopes workers' conditions worsen

https://theintercept.com/2022/07/29/bank-of-america-worker-conditions-worse/


A BANK OF AMERICA executive stated that “we hope” working Americans will lose leverage in the labor market in a recent private memo obtained by The Intercept. Making predictions for clients about the U.S. economy over the next several years, the memo also noted that changes in the percentage of Americans seeking jobs “should help push up the unemployment rate.” The memo, a “Mid-year review” from June 17, was written by Ethan Harris, the head of global economics research for the corporation’s investment banking arm, Bank of America Securities. Its specific aspiration: “By the end of next year, we hope the ratio of job openings to unemployed is down to the more normal highs of the last business cycle.”

What the memo calls “the ratio of job openings to unemployed” is generally calculated the other way around — i.e., the ratio of unemployed people to job openings. The more widely used ratio offers one measurement of the balance of power between workers and employers. The lower this number, the more options unemployed people have when searching for work and the greater opportunities employed people have to switch to jobs with better pay and conditions. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, this ratio stood at 0.5 as of May, meaning that there were then two job openings per unemployed person.
In 2009 — at the worst moments of the economic calamity that followed the collapse of the housing bubble during the end of the George W. Bush administration — the ratio climbed as high as 6.5, so there were more than six unemployed workers for each open job. It then slowly declined over the next decade, reaching 0.8 in February 2020 before Covid-19 lockdowns began…

The memo is an uncanny demonstration that the economist Adam Smith was right when he described the politics of inflation in his famed 1776 work, “The Wealth of Nations.”. “High profits tend much more to raise the price of work than high wages,” Smith argued. “Our merchants and master-manufacturers complain much of the bad effects of high wages in raising the price. … They say nothing concerning the bad effects of high profits. They are silent with regard to the pernicious effects of their own gains. They complain only of those of other people.” Thus, exactly as Smith would have predicted, Bank of America complains loudly about the bad effects of high wages in raising prices, but appears to be silent about the pernicious effects of high profits.

Louis Dejoy celebrated TWO YRS of fuckery this past June

And he’s poised to fuck up the mail in ballot process in 3 months.

I remember management strategy meetings where we’d do SWOT analysis to evaluate and prioritize strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

Dejoy is a glaring threat. The Postal Service as a target is a threat. With the “success” Republicans have had sabotaging the Postal Service it will remain a target for election interference.

I sure hope somebody who matters is doing something right now to come up with some long-term solutions to these threats because a LOT is at stake.
