    Private businesses that are publicly traded are the same as any other private business, just with an added responsibility to the share holders. It applies to every business operating in the US.

    ok cause our company has put up a statement on their website saying it doesn't apply to them. they are a fairly large corporation as well. maybe the person who drew up the statement got the wrong information?

    It hasn't been implemented yet. So right now, it doesn't apply to anyone. It will apply to your company unless the mandate is challenged in court.

    This is too funny.
    Why is it people have such a hard time with this.

    "I saw on IG that some tik tok bitch who dances for money said her daughters boyfriend on facebook said..."

    Is pretty much the same thing.
    Getting your info from the correct specialist is key here lol.
    Would you ask the kid who mows your lawn for advice on your taxes?

    I have to post this cause it feels related.
    Direct from Trump regarding Magic Mikes Symposium of Web Wonders:

    "I watched him over the last week at his symposium, which was really amazing. Some of the people he had were incredible, incredible people. Mike Lindell!" Trump said. "True! I'll tell you, true. It's true. He had some people up there, really — they were scientists, they were political scientists and beyond. They were incredible, what they said and what they understand."

    And beyond!

    I have a serious question:

    Why do people on YouTube and Facebook have such overwhelming contempt for Biden and downvote everything he says or does, while vocally Trump and Republicans are praised? It’s in contrast to the approval ratings where Biden is just unfavorable while Trump is at despised.

    I don't think it's "some" by the sheer, disproportionate ratio of contempt for Biden across the board compared to what's there for Trump.

    When Trump was president though, people always made fun of him and hated him.

    69% of American Adults use Facebook. 73% use Youtube. You've discussed this issue with all of them?

    Oh, wait you mean the tiny minority of people that share your regressive politics on Youtube and Facebook.

    Right? It's almost as if you watch exclusively conservative content, you're going to see people shitting on a Democratic president. Wild.

    Do you not realize that both YouTube and Facebook curate what content they recommend to you based on your previous selections? If you have a habit of clicking on right-wing shill videos and feeds, then that's all you're going to have recommended to you.

    In other words: no, it's not some "disproportionate ratio of contempt for Biden across the board"; you're just in a self-imposed echo chamber.

    Even if they do ask a question which elicits a response, they don't ever respond. They'll either go silent or post some further non-sequitur, begging-the-question comment.

    I was riding a public bus a few years back and had a homeless person sit next to me the entire ride, rambling at me and asking me "questions" but never actually engaging with any answer I would offer him. Yuppie gives me those same "homeless guy on a bus rambling to himself" vibes.

    Just going to post this again.



    There is no point in trying to have a back-and-forth with any poster who has proven they have no forth. Simply smile, tell him he's adorable, and return to the grownups' table.

    Well. Biden talked to reporters and defended the Afghan withdraw.

    Yeah, today wasn't the day to do that. Makes the anniversary political, even if that wasn't the intent.

    On the bright side, any insincere posters who disingenuously shrill "but Biden doesn't answer questions!" just got that argument shoved up their virtual ass.

    Been thinking about this for a bit and I actually feel Bidens vaccine strategy could pay off long term. I mean Republicans are up in arms about it now but the more of them ultimately take it to keep their job, the more people will be confronted with the fact that their irrational fear of a vaccine that 2.5 billion people have taken was unfounded.
    Once you've had the vaccine and realize all the horror stories were completely unfounded and ridiculous it'll be hard to keep the same mindset as before (though I'm sure many will still find a way). In that sense the vaccine may provide some minor form of inoculation against future anti-science conspiracy mumbo jumbo.

    In short, by politicizing vaccines Republicans have ensured that every administered dose is a strike against their anti scientific ideology and a small victory for Democrats.

    Careful, using logic and making good points will only get you labeled radical!

    This is a good fucking sentence worth quoting.
