You even put on trial for this - and found not guilty.

    Would you fire the employee or decide that he now has a job with me and this organzation for the rest of his life?

    You have a businesses and one of the employees hates you, so calls your wife and children telling them that you are having an affair with another employee - telling that to everyone, posting it online to be permanent too - and it's false. Would you fire that employee or or given him a bonus and assurance he has a job with you forever for deliberately ruining your reputation and consuming your life with this?

    Fire the bastard. That's what happens when you attack the boss. It can't be any other way. This is particularly true when you know that employee was and is spying on you trying to listen in on every conversation you have with anyone looking for ways to scandalize you falsely again.
    An absolutely horrible, infantile analogy that is totally unAmerican, yet self-serving.( not surprisingly)

    Sure
    1. Give more tax cuts to corporations and wealthy folks that don't need tax cuts.
    2. Dismantle and defund social safety net programs, SNAP SS, Medicare.
    3. Repeal as many environmental safety regulations that protect air and water as possible because Obama
    4. AR-15s, guns and more guns, murica'
    5. Trolling the libtards.

    Why Michael Atkinson's firing is so, so egregious - CNNPolitics
    CNN? The same corrupt network that carried three years of Fake News, propaganda and lies about the Russian Collusion Hoax?

    That covers up huge scandals and crimes by Democrats?

    That has spread many, many lies and falsehoods about Trump? You're kidding, right?

    Either quote that wackjob's words or don't waste our time. I'm not chasing bull****.

    who determines "need"? socialist logic is the attitude that if someone is poor and someone is rich, the rich person should be taxed until others are no longer poor

    1. Gave tax cuts to everyone. even the NY times had to admit that 80% of taxpayers received a tax cut.
    2. You mean reform them so that they stop costing us trillions of dollars a year.
    3. Yes repealing bad environmental policies because they give you warm fuzzies is a good thing. My yard is not a wet land because when it rains i get standing water in it.
    which is basically what obama said.
    4. Yep because the 2nd amendment says i have the right to bear arms.
    5. Pointing out facts is trolling to leftist because they hate facts.
    facts don't care about your feelings.

    Working in tax processing, I see what the upper crust pay ( or lack thereof) They're in a world of capital gains, trusts and shell LLC's. These local billionaires and sports teams don't need any more ****ing tax breaks or money. The Uber driver that drove me to the office this morning laid off from his main job that feeds his family who's going through crazy red tape to collect unemployment NEEDS. It's people like him(and me, I'm volunteering to be here so that a few millionaires can get their extensions filed when they want) that are risking the safety of their families and themselves keeping **** going NEED.

    most millionaires don't have the power to determine public policy etc. Most Millionaires are in the group that pays the highest effective tax rate in the USA. You seem to confuse millionaires with Billionaires. And it seems to be based on envy

    Millionaires aren't the ****ing ones worrying about making their mortgage or rent or worrying about unemployment. Cry me a river. You've always struck me as the one of the posters here that has the least empathy for the working class. You live in a different world and the only thing that you seem to ever give a **** about are your guns. And the rich DO determine public policy because they have the money to donate to our elected officials that MAKE public policy.

    You confuse millionaires with people like Gates, Buffett, Soros, and the Kochs. Many millionaires aren't making all that much money. True, they aren't worrying about ordering fries with their burger but you don't really understand much about the "rich" you hate so much.
