Tell us again how totally not racist you are, Ray, that shit never gets old.
What did I say that was racist? Before you answer, hint: look up the word first.

Rich people from Third World Countries fly in to our clinics, not rich people from rich countries.

On the stats, they live longer, they have lower infant mortality rates, oh, and let's not forget, almost all of the G7 countries handled Covid better than we did.
Wrong, people fly in from other countries rich or otherwise. In some instances they buy out an entire hospital floor for security reasons. They usually pay their bill with cash every single day.

If you can sit behind a computer and whine about the darkies all day, you have time to work behind a computer in an office. But why do that, when you can collect some of the New Deal Welfare. Just remember to say a prayer to St. Franklin Delano when you cash your welfare check.
I don't get welfare, I get disability which I paid into my entire life. Furthermore nobody is going to pay a person with no experience for this fathom computer job you speak of.

What is your value as an employee? You are worth as much as somebody else that can do the same quality and quantity of work that you do. That's it. You're not worth a dime more or a dime less.

If you make 20 bucks and hour and leave your company because you didn't get a raise, and your employer replaces you with somebody else for 20 bucks an hour, you didn't deserve the raise. You were getting paid fairly for what you did. If your employer has to up the offer to 22 bucks an hour, you were correct, you were being underpaid. If he can get somebody to do the job for 17 bucks an hour, you were being overpaid.

What I do on the computer is Google, blogs, shopping and pay bills, activities most Americans do every single day. If there is such a computer job, like the shelf stocker, it won't pay shit because an employer can get anybody to do it. It's not a wonder why people like you vote Democrat. You live in your own little world and divorced from reality and common sense.


Well, it's called, "Doing Research". The Orcas at Seaworld were being kept in horrible conditions, and Cetacean Scientists (those are scientists who study whales) complained for years that this treatment was unacceptable.

So to use your metaphor, eventually, the whales got fed up and started attacking their trainers... kind of like people are getting fed up now and attack the cops.
You have no idea WTF you're talking about. Wild animals were always unpredictable. Years ago I ran into a guy that raised, trained and killed cats. It was when I was delivering medical equipment. He took me for a tour of his yard. It was fascinating. He was showing me cats that Hollywood hired for movies.

When we got to one cage, his partner was fighting with a lioness. They were rolling around on the ground and the lion playfully biting him like best friends. At the time, some joker here who owned a Cleveland gas station had a lion cub behind the station, and I brought it up to him.

He told me that he was against it. He said "Do you see my partner? Tomorrow I might have to come out here and kill that lion. It breaks my heart every time I have to do it, but there is no other choice. You have to know that look a lion gives you. When they give you that look, they've turned for no reason at all, and they have to be put down.

Or maybe it was your attitude... Point was, how long you waited on the dock because you were an asshole to the dock guys had nothing to do with the quality of the car being produced. That was ENTIRELY on the decisions made in the executive offices to produce crap.

You see, my Dad would have never bought a Japanese Car. He was a WWII vet and still pissed off about Pearl Harbor. My first car was a Chevette. It was an absolute piece of crap, but it's what I could afford on an Army Specialist's salary. You take a look at the list of the ten worst cars ever produced, it's the Yugo and nine economy American cars.... And if your starter car was crap, you don't go the premium models when you can afford them.

This is where the Japanese and Germans won the car wars.
As I explained (and you ignored) it wasn't just me, it was a lot of drivers. Some of the drivers were always put ahead of the line, but I was told they payoff the dock workers for that service; something I would never dream of doing. The point that went over your head was, the company was paying a lot of money for holding over drivers and couldn't do anything about it because of the union. All that waste goes into the price of an American car.

Everything you say is racist... you just think it's how normal people think.

Uh, yeah, guy, it probably didn't cost that much that they wouldn't unload you because you were kind of an asshole. Frankly, it was a subtle message they didn't want you back... too bad you didn't take the hint.

Wow... you are kind of dense, aren't you. You mean animals might finally get sick and tired of being mistreated to entertain humans? Color me surprised.

I know how normal people think. Trust me, you're not it. You see race in everything people who oppose your views say. Bring up a fact--racist to Joe. Bring up statistics--racist to Joe. Bring up history--racist to Joe.

If they didn't want me back they'd have called my company. I wish they would have too. Spent too many hours there. In any case, it's amazing how much you know about things where you were never at.

Because you're an expert on animals too. Animals are animals and wild animals are unpredictable. That's why they have petting zoos for deer but not lions. It's like that lady who's face got ripped off by a monkey. The Cleveland Clinic had to do a face transplant on the poor thing. Her friend came over with this animal and it freaked out for no reason.

Ray, I've run a loading dock... um, yeah, the best way to get rid of drivers you don't like, is to take your sweet time unloading them.

sure it freaked out for a reason. It was being kept in a cage or a leash most of the time.... If you got treated like that, you'd probably freak out at a certain point, too.

Anyway, you are losing track of your argument, which was that working folks should be treated like animals at Seaworld, forced to do tricks for fish. You know, instead of having rights at work and stuff. The thing is, much like the Orcas at seaworld, working people will only put up with so much of that sort of shit.

If people don't like their employer, they are free to find another employer. If they don't like any employers, it's they that have the real problem, and can open up their own business. There is no law that states you have to work for another person.

No, but there's no reason why employers should be able to abuse us, either.

There are more of us than them.

But we need them more than they need us. Because there are more of us, more are willing to take the jobs. It's called the Golden Rule: The man with the gold makes the rules.

Until the rest of us decide they don't.

Honestly, Ray, this is why I compare you to an abused wife... that's kind of what you sound like. You are happy to take the abuse.
