Re: Bill O'Reilly shitcanned from Fox

Flagg, you seem to be confusing at-will employment with right-to-work employment. Right-to-work is what you described with respect to unions: you can not be required to join a union or pay union dues as a condition of employment. At-will employment states that absent a contract setting forth the te...

Re: Right Wing Sexual Predators in politics and media

Okay, this is hearsay (and get used to that if you want to talk about a subject that by its nature involves a whole lot of allegations that are never definitively proven), but I know people who know people and from what I've heard quite a few of what you would call social justice communities have s...

Re: Woman sexually assaulted in bathroom, anti-trans bigots use her as a prop

The funny thing (not "haha" funny, but "sad irony" funny) is that you don't hear much complaining about (no offense meant, I don't know the appropriate term, if someone would like to correct me, please feel free) biologically female trans persons identifying as male using the me...

Re: Woman sexually assaulted in bathroom, anti-trans bigots use her as a prop

This makes little sense to me. I would readily believe someone if they said they used the bathroom that fit their gender. Why? I can see some people have to use the one that most resembles what they look like. Some people really look like women, even though they were born male. I have zero problem ...

Re: Woman sexually assaulted in bathroom, anti-trans bigots use her as a prop

Maybe off topic, but are there not already laws that say it is a misdemeanor to cause a ruckus in the opposite bathroom? Or may be it falls under simple disturbance of the peace. I know there are unisex bathrooms in parts of Europe and in Korea, so this whole bathroom/trans thing is mindless. Hell,...

Re: Bill O'Reilly shitcanned from Fox

if you had a daughter in her mid-late teens you wouldn't let her go anywhere alone with O'Reilly. Are you going to answer the question? It's a simple yes or no. I don't think I would be legally allowed to prevent a child 16 or over (aka mid-late teens) from meeting with whom she pleases, and if I u...

Re: Bill O'Reilly shitcanned from Fox

If and when O'Reilly admits to wrongdoing and/or he has been found in some formal process to have done wrong doing, I will be the first to happily join Flagg in his condemnations. Not before. Same for anyone else. Well your jumping into the thread with both feet and sharing your opinion on matters ...

Re: Bill O'Reilly shitcanned from Fox

Hmmm, guess I left that part out. But yes: protecting him as part of the bottom-line was their position up until he was no longer profitable and in fact massively detrimental.
