I'm not blaming. I'm merely addressing the comment in #16.
Life wasn't great but it's not gotten better for many folks. And you can blame it on anybody you want. Yes, some have benefited...no question about that.
Is Trump is the answer? Obviously not. Nor the GOP in general.
It's going to get worse before it gets better.

not sure really. but judging by the phone calls we get from people desperate for health insurance, I'd say it either doesn't exist or it sucks pretty bad.

"Oh come on, that's always been the case. It's not like Obama created health care inflation."
that's not what I'm saying. I'm saying I have lots of clients who are in worse shape with their health insurance coverage since obamacare. Again, I'm talking about the individual market primarily.
You've noticed a lot of companies no longer offer individual products?

which benefits were they being screwed by not having?

"We know what life was like before Obamacare"
for many with individual policies and small groups, life was premiums about half where they are now.

In any case, I think it's great if women are free to start posting "me too" to help them get past it. If for no other reason, it at least will help many get past their belief they are in a small small minority of women.....and they're not.

"It's commonplace to fire the victim, pay them a lump sum, and have them sign a NDA so the harassment never sees the light of day."
a couple years ago, we fired a 25 year veteran of our company. He was bothering one of the assistants and she reported it...we cut him the next day.
now....I believe he has been a shit for years with plenty of warnings he's ignored which tells me it went on way too long.

well, most men aren't anywhere near that powerful. They are schmos who can't get away with much at all.
like me, for example. what about you? can you get away with it?

"Why" is because the lawsuits are expensive.
that was a joke. I implied I was receiving extra training because I'm Frank Hart (9-5 scumbag)
"Is sexual harassment claim insurance not in the portfolio of insurance services provided?"
It's a common line of coverage we write. It's part of "employment practices liability" which covers employment related discrimination, wrongful termination, and harassment.

"with little fear of consequence"
Is that the culture you are in? Where men have little fear of consequence?
It's not like that here. I live in a very conservative area....most men voted for Trump, but I don't feel like we have an environment where men can get away with it or rather, they believe they can get away with it.

"I really don't believe most men even understand what sexual harassment is."
Sexual harassment is more far reaching than most people think.
But as fewer baby boomers and more gen y are in the workforce....that will change.
For some reason...my company has made me watch the videos on this like 20 times.
not sure why.......

I smell the drunken savage here. Is he flagging stuff and responding?

"The retorts on this thread say volumes about Bruce's daddy issues"
exactly. he ran as soon as he realized he had lifted his skirt too much and revealed a little too much about himself.

I believe my answer was very broad. Included in the group of "people obsessed with guns" are "people looking to turn it into a violent protest".
I know folks who carry a gun because they carry a gun...they are a gun nut. They aren't violent.
There are other folks who carry a gun because they are violent and want to start some shit.....and this KKK dick fits that description.
I'm not spinning anything.

"Who brings a gun to a peaceful protest?"
people obsessed with guns.

I don't think we are in agreement on that.
I believe some theocratic "scum bag" foreign heads gave money to that foundation and it's obvious those folks don't give 2 shits about the mission of the foundation.....they were buying political influence and nothing more.
Perhaps you give that money back. I'm not saying you do....but recognize the intent of such a contribution.
take their money, if you can sleep at night.

If the foundation is doing good work with it, why should they return it?

"These maps include notes on the construction materials and load-bearing capacity of bridges"
Our govt stored up tons and tons of iron ore and other metals. We believed there was a good chance we would end up in a "resource war" and the control of natural resources were key.

"She has to give up things that the man doesn't. She has to do work the man doesn't.
She gives up her independence. Gives up freedom."
Bruce, you've spoken on behalf of my wife already.
You seem to know quite a bit about her.

"This is about a gender-fluid woman claiming that heterosexual marriage is oppressive. You don't see how bizarre and funny that is?"
I think he agrees with her

Never mind, I assumed you knew something about raising a family, marriage, kids, etc.
No wonder you know so much about women....

"She gives up her independence. Gives up freedom."
My wife and I have 3 kids. She has pretty much stayed home the past 15 years. She lives in a nice home, kids in private school, etc...
Tell me Bruce, what freedom and I dependence has she given up that I haven't equally given up?
She doesn't have to work but that's the benefit of marrying someone who makes enough to provide.

I'm sorry, have I hurt somebody's feelings on this thread?
I jabbed corky for framing poor poor Hillary as a victim and that's it.
The drunken savage woke up and took a swing, fell back down and passed out again.
And I don't know what snoofy is talking about.
