Clash - Rock the Casbah


How are you Survivng the President Donald Trump Recession?

I had to stop looking for employment because of Donald Trump's mismanagement of the COVID-19 crisis. Him blaming it on China was a lame attempt to deflect his lack of actions back in January and February.

It's still rock & roll to me


I just Chugged a gallon of clorox

I'll let you know how things turn out!

Donald Trump's Kindergarten Evaulation Report

Doesn't play well with others!

I'm on Social Security and usually get $16 a month in food stamps. I just got a $160 bonus for SNAP.

I couldn't believe it. This will last me six months. Thanks to the dems that passed the law allowing the bonus.

The death rate for KNOWN coronavirus cases is 3.5% in the USA

The math doesn't look very good for the elderly and immune compromised. Only 20% of the people that are put on ventilators survive.

'Scared to Death' by Arbitration: Companies Drowning in Their Own System

Teel Lidow couldn’t quite believe the numbers. Over the past few years, the nation’s largest telecom companies, like Comcast and AT&T, have had a combined 330 million customers. Yet annually an average of just 30 people took the companies to arbitration, the forum where millions of Americans are forced to hash out legal disputes with corporations.

Mr. Lidow, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur with a law degree, figured there had to be more people upset with their cable companies. He was right. Within a few months, Mr. Lidow found more than 1,000 people interested in filing arbitration claims against the industry.

About the same time last year, Travis Lenkner and his law partners at the firm Keller Lenkner had a similar realization. Arbitration clauses bar employees at many companies from joining together to mount class-action lawsuits. But what would happen, the lawyers wondered, if those workers started filing tens of thousands of arbitration claims all at once? Many companies, it turns out, can’t handle the caseload.

Hit with about 2,250 claims in one day last summer, for example, the delivery company DoorDash was “scared to death” by the onslaught, according to internal documents unsealed in February in federal court in California.

Years ago a credit collector tried to take me to small claims court. The filing fee was $75. The contract allowed for arbitration. I demanded that the small claims lawsuit be dropped and we take the issue to arbitration where the collector would have had to pay $3000 for a $500 lawsuit. We ended up settling the debt for $50.
