Anyone read this?

  • Did you guys read that "corporate responsibility" act?

    I gave you the condensed version- basically this allows employees and "shareholders," shareholders being defined as any community or business- say, a deli next to a production plant- that depends upon that corporation for their livelihood, to have a "say" in the management of that business. 40% of the Board of Directors would be representatives of an employee group. Think about that- the asylum you own will be run by the inmates.


    Color me cynical, but why this bill, right now? Trump is trying to bring jobs back through tariffs and public shaming, or whatever- I don't know if his tariffs will work, but damn man, I understand technology makes our previous industries obsolete (think buggy whips) but this bit of legislation will drive industries offshore, if passed.

  • Quote

    She (Fauxcohantas) tweeted about the Accountable Capitalism Act on Wednesday, saying "corporate profits have soared while average wages for Americans haven't budged."

    While IRAs and 401ks for Americans have benefited.


    When corporate profits increase, so does my retirement fund.

  • I'll wager three things: No Republican in a current seat will vote for this, it would immediately ruin them. For the second, I don't see it surviving a supreme court challenge. And the third is that it would have to go to Trump's desk for a signature, and he'd never put ink on THAT shit.

  • God I hate politics because politics attract the truly stupid people. If we're going to discuss the whys and wherefores of the American job market and the lower wages I'd guess part of that is because we've shipped entire industries overseas- tires, paper, printing, auto manufacture- that paid a decent wage. What's left are lower paying jobs brought about by the previous status quo.


    I don't know if tariffs will work but being older now I can remember a time America was greater and there were decent jobs available- then business discovered it was cheaper to make a tire in China, where the workers are basically slaves so as a result our politicians reaped millions in cash and that's what they mean when they say "Good for business." Good for THEIR business- but bad for American workers.


    Bean counters count beans. That's what they do- and they make decisions based upon how many beans they will get or how many beans they will give. Corporations are soulless, as they should be- if it costs one bean to make a tire in China and two beans to make a tire in America then that's what they see- so it is up to us to change the rules via tariffs or even declaring some technologies vital to our interests we should- we've been getting hosed far too long, and Warren's position is basically an attempt to influence the bean counts for corporations to make them have to spend even more beans to stay here.


    What's good for business isn't necessarily good for American workers. What's good for American workers is creating better, higher paying skilled jobs and Warren's legislation will prohibit that.


    Fuck man.... I must be procrastinating. I should be mowing my lawn and I'm talking about Warren... that reminds me, I need to poop scoop before I mow.

  • This is the most important part of it:


    Requires very large American corporations to obtain a federal charter as a "United States corporation,"


    Basically it's a Nationalization/Government takeover of large corporations. Communism 101.

  • Seize the means of production...

    It's become a race to the bottom for the democrats, they're not even trying to hide it anymore.

    Absinthe makes the tart grow fonder.

  • ....dressed up and sugar coated to appeal to your common schlub union types - you know, Johnny Lunchpale & Sally Housecoat.

    It won't appeal to the unions. As it is now, they deal/negotiate with management of whatever company that they happen to have contracts with. Under this act, they would have to deal with all the companies suppliers, service providers, non-intentionally affected side businesses, etc. If, for say, an ironworker strike was declared on the site of a new skyscraper, the issues would never get resolved because it would have to include not only the construction companies' management, but also potential customers, the company selling the steel for the girders, surrounding businesses, even the illegal alien driving the lunchtime taco truck. It would literally shut jobs down for months. It would probably take an emergency session of Congress to restart work, and it would essentially destroy the strike as a tool.

  • I'm glad they are going full retard leftist. They need to do more of this shit to completely obliterate their own brand/party.

    Fauxahontas thinks that now, the majority of democrat voters are millenial socialists, and she didn't figure it out from Clinton's loss (like damn near all the other leftists) that they have scared away their moderate voters.

  • Let them live in their bubble. It all comes crashin down in November.

  • There are two fine motherfuckers in my life going thru cancer right now. It's gonna leave them both with just enough to purchase ramen fucking noodles on the bright side. Now the poor son-of-a-bitch that has to dole $500 every 20 days for a tiny vile of sugar blood insulin .. well pray for that sumbitch.


    You fuckers are getting old. Slam it in Park, old This shit should mean more than forum bored arrogance to you.

    Yup... it's bullshit medical issues can bankrupt a person. It's bullshit untreated medical issues can kill a person, too.


    I get free healthcare, but Steph has a deductible so her Christmas Eve visit to the ER cost us over two grand initially- what was amazing was we got 78% off our initial ER visit by paying cash, then as the bills for all the labs came in we called them up and asked if they had a cash discount and yeah, most did- they're so used to being hosed on ER shit they'll give you up to 78% off.


    The people that get hosed are the in betweeners- those that live paycheck to paycheck and can't afford to pay and take advantage of the 78% discounts. All told her ER visit was about three grand- hey, overdoses are expensive- but the way the current healthcare system is now you can't afford to be a fat diabetic, or a druggie who barely works, or a poor schlep living in Brooklyn.
