Re: Trump's new toy - The Pardon

He should pardon everyone in prison for non-violent crimes that are merely vices. He is being much more magnanimous with the loud-mouth athletes and stars than I would be. I agree that there are better ways to deal with non-violent criminals than prison. I hope he pardons and/or commutes the senten...

Trump's new toy - The Pardon

He has a chance to do a lot of good and bad with this. A good thing is that he is not cynically waiting until he heads out the door as other presidents have. Hopefully he will go easy on pardoning people for no other reason than that they are cronies. As we know Trump does not like non-submissive bl...

Re: Joy Reid Still Has A Job

There are facts here that are not in dispute: 1.Both women tweeted some nasty stuff about others. 2.Joy Reid's market share didn't care and she remains employed. 3. Roseanne's show was canceled and many are now unemployed, including Roseanne. Nothing in dispute here, right? What is unknown is: Beca...

Re: Joy Reid Still Has A Job

This seems hopeless.
So you don't think potential impact on market share (viewers) had any bearing what-so-ever on the decision to fire Barr or not to fire Reid ?

Re: Joy Reid Still Has A Job

You certainly are confused. The market will determine how much profit you make, not your laborers. My attempts at sarcasm are not what they used to be. But I think you are coming around. If the market determines the profits. And the profits aren't what the owner(s) think they should be. Then don't ...

Re: Joy Reid Still Has A Job

If the owner is not the producer, who is ? Labor/wage earners. You can't seriously believe that ABC stockholders produced the Roseanne Show. You must realize that those now unemployed actors, stage hands, set designers, directors, etc., were the producers of that product. I wasn't using the word "p...

Re: Joy Reid Still Has A Job

Remind me never to be an investor/stockholder in any of your companies. I am not going to be a supplier of your products. For example, my buddy is a stockholder in Harley-Davidson and he doesn't even have his own Harley and certainly isn't a supplier of that product. The market is business between ...

Stockholders are not the market and neither is one broadcast channel.
Huh ? They are the supplier of the product that is demanded by consumers. It is precisely the market.

Maybe it's the Canadian Club ?

Again, the markets decided nothing, a black woman did.
Who answers to the stockholders. And who would certainly be replaced if she caused ABC to lose money.

Re: Joy Reid Still Has A Job

Well duh ! Ya didn't have to make me read all that psychobabble to make your point. Putting aside the histrionics and pseudo-intellectualism of the article, "RIC", or something much less exaggerated, does exist. I don't think there is much of a debate, I certainly had to live with it in my job. Anyw...
