Posted in: U.S. conservative talk show host Tucker Carlson says he will interview Putin See in context

Sure, but he wasn't technically fired. Carlson’s contract was renewed in 2021, and he will be paid out for the remaining term.

IIRC, that was declared illegal. Because a lot of Hollywood actors used to be signed under contracts to work exclusively with studios, but then the actors couldn't work at all when the studios stopped using them for productions.

How can a contract ban someone from doing their career?

A non-compete clause. However, IIRC, those are only valid if you voluntarily leave or complete your contract. Not if you're fired/layed-off.

We haven’t seen Carlson’s interview yet but the concern is that, unlike Walters and Wallace, he is going to treat this as a fawning hero interview designed to make Putin look good rather than actually challenging him on anything.

The only way that I can see that is if the rumors are true that Carlson has become a Schmittian.

Posted in: EU agrees on first law combatting violence against women See in context

Farmers protesting all across Europe demanding an end to regulations that are destroying their livelihood and making it harder for the public to afford food, but the EU's very FIRST priority is ensuring that women are not called "mean names" in the internet. Really shows their priorities, doesn't it?

Just don't be angry or surprised if not everyone agrees with you.

I actually expect because this is the internet and almost no one argues or converses with the intention of changing opinions or learning something new.

Funny that a lot of people are posting about what is said and happened in an interview that hasn't even occurred yet.

I'm no fan of Putin but I'd at least like to hear what his game-plan is to see where things are heading.

Posted in: Americans have saddled themselves with credit card debt See in context

I'll never understand debt-havers

There are three kinds of people that typically take on debt. The first is people who are going through a rough patch in life and need some extra money to help them along (Usually this is solved by a savings account/"rainy day" fund, but things happen). The second is people who are using the loan as an investment in a business/house/etc. that they're using to get things off the ground in the hopes of making even more money in the future (It's advised you don't do this unless you already have a plan in place to pay it off anyone if things fall through, or enough money already where you don't necessarily need the loan).

The third is just people who have no money. I don't mean homeless nor people who lack of funds because of expenses. I mean people who are more than well enough off, but spend all their money buying crap for zero reason. It's the kind person people refer to when they say someone is "Keeping up with the Jones". Think of it like the college kid who's complaining about expensive books while talking on the latest iPhone and sipping their daily Starbucks coffee. Or the trailer park trash that complain about how expensive the payments are on their new boat, while playing the $120 edition of EA Sports FC on their $600 PS5 and $3000 8k TV.

They will keep your limits low if they suspect you don't understand the bill paying part. 

That's not how it works. Banks actually despise (And used to refuse, until the government made it illegal) giving out loans and credit cards to people who they know cannot pay them back. Reason being is that if people don't pay their loans, those banks make no money.

Folks are scrambling to pay these obligations that they haven’t had to pay in three years, and it’s hitting exactly the demographic we are talking about here: the younger folk, less affluent folk,

Don't know what this idiot is talking about. I finished paying off my student loans back in 2019.

Hey, here's a suggestions, how about we let people figure out for themselves if information is BS rather than let the government decide what's "true"? I mean, it's not like the government would ever censor scientific studies and actual events taking place just to keep up a narrative. That's just crazy talk.

So why is MAGA World rejecting out of hand any legislation that would at least do something to alleviate the problem?

Because they don't agree with other things attached to the bill, or the bill isn't the plan they have been asking for, or they're not even allowed to see the bill and told to vote sight unseen.

Many workers whose labor can be stolen by withholding wages, benefits, etc. come undocumented - they can't complain for fear of deportation.

Why are they here in the first place if the deck is stacked that much against them?

Polls show AfD is the top party in eastern Germany, including in Brandenburg, Saxony and Thuringia states, which are slated to hold elections this fall.

Wait, so the "Far Right" consists of people who grew up around people who remember and experienced when East Berlin was a thing?

He didn't, hence the multiple bankrupcies, proven fraud, not paying any tax etc. 

And he just happened to NOT get caught for over 40 years?

Being president requires basic self control which is clearly something Trump never learned.

How'd he manage to own and operate an international multi-billion dollar enterprise, then?

As much as Trump would like to take credit, presidents don't really control gas prices or inflation rates. Governments can set good policies that can bear fruit but that can take years to achieve.

You're saying the president doesn't have any control, and the you're saying the president has full control. Which is it? Or is it just whoever is in office, so you get to play blame games all the time?

As for lower tax rates? who got lower tax rates during the trump administration? apart from wall street and the jet-set elite.

Many came about from circumstances that would have aided any president.

You mean like Clinton riding on the coattails of everything Reagan did?

When confronted with his first real domestic crisis - Covid - he flipped and flopped like a fish out of water.

You do remember the news media going nuts and calling everyone racist for wanting to restrict and screen anyone and everyone who was coming out of West Taiwan, right?

What WAS the appropriate response to that, especially when Trump began doing and recommending practically everything Fauci and the CDC wanted?

any political leader of a country, let alone the leader of the world's most powerful nation - a democracy, needs to show a level of dignity, humility, intelligence, compassion, smarts and understanding

Why?

the-trump-administration-was-ruining-the-pre-covid-19-19-economy-too-just-more-slowly

Trunp was "ruining" the economy by having lower gas prices, lower tax rates, lower inflation rates...lower everything? Are you absolutely mental?

Abe was in the same mold.

I really don't care about Abe except for all the memes about having kids.

The constant bullying, infantile character assassination, lying ad infinitum, and disgusting comments made about veterans are but a sample of what irked most.

So Trump never actually did anything is what you're telling me?

Do you guys not realize that your hatred over the guy has nothing to do with anything he actually did?

While the core group of senators negotiating the deal have not yet released text of the bill

THAT'S why it's DOA. They know it doesn't have what people want, so they're not going to publish anything until the moment of voting, then be "surprised" that the bill fails, and the news media will talk about how "evil" each side is for refusing to accept the bill when they already know that it has nothing that was originally agreed to.

You misunderstand, the problem with parents homeschooling kids is that it takes power and control away from the government. In addition, it begins raising certain questions, such as why should people pay taxes for a service most people don't want nor use.
