I wonder if we had Senate and House leadership who could effectively message on Twitter and relentlessly dunk on these fucks vs ones who probably can't use a computer and email is too much tech for them...
If it would help at all

Tyson Foods suspends plant leaders who bet on number of employees who would get COVID-19

Tyson Foods has suspended top plant leadership in its Waterloo, Iowa, pork processing plant without pay after allegations they made light of the COVID-19 pandemic by operating a betting pool for supervisors and managers to wager how many plant employees would test positive.
The allegations came to light Wednesday (Nov. 18) in the ongoing wrongful death suit filed by the family of Isidro Fernandez, a Waterloo employee who died of COVID-19 in April. The case is being heard in U.S. District Court for Northern Iowa. Fernandez was one of six reported deaths among plant employees from COVID-19.
Tyson Foods CEO Dean Banks released the following statement Thursday (Nov. 19) following the suspensions.
“We are extremely upset about the accusations involving some of the leadership at our Waterloo plant. Tyson Foods is a family company with 139,000 team members and these allegations do not represent who we are, or our Core Values and Team Behaviors. We expect every team member at Tyson Foods to operate with the utmost integrity and care in everything we do. We have suspended, without pay, the individuals allegedly involved and have retained the law firm Covington & Burling LLP to conduct an independent investigation led by former Attorney General Eric Holder. If these claims are confirmed, we’ll take all measures necessary to root out and remove this disturbing behavior from our company.”
Banks reiterated the company’s top priority is the health and safety of employees. He said Tyson has invested millions of dollars to transform its U.S. facilities, including the Waterloo plant with protective measures, from walk-through temperature scanners and workstation dividers to social distance monitors and always-on-testing.
The Waterloo plant was hit hard by COVID-19 requiring the plant to close on April 22, as the community saw a rise in positive cases. The plant employs 2,800 workers and all were tested for the virus. The plant did resume operations on May 7 at reduced capacity because of worker absenteeism. Tyson also paid bonuses to workers who did show up for work. All employees were compensated during the furlough. In May, Tyson reported that 44% of Waterloo employees tested positive for COVID-19.
The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages for fraudulent misrepresentation and gross negligence. Tyson had the case moved to federal court after President Donald Trump invoked his authority under the Defense Production Act issuing an executive order for meat and poultry processing companies to continue operating despite the onslaught of positive cases.
Fire that motherfucker
The CEO should be fired. Ignoring the obvious cultural issues where plant management felt comfortable doing this, if plant management felt COVID was likely enough to spread to have a pool, it means senior management literally didn’t care about protecting the employees.
tie them down in a coup and have the chickens eat them alive
Someone paste that "if republicans have to choose between..." quote for me again plz? TIA
If conservatives become convinced that they can not win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. The will reject democracy.

I wish at least one of them would die. But they're getting medicine none of us will ever be able to get.
Unless they’re a Black GOPer, then They dead for sure
Tim Scott would not be a real loss.
Mitch dying would be the perfect scenario. Most evil person in the country is gone and Dem Governor gets to appoint replacement
Trump knew he had to save Carson after Caine died
Shit going down in Guatemala rn
Burning down congress?
A new type of coup has entered the chat.
chickens live in coops but who cares at this point.
these people are hurting. The US isn’t there that’s why we will not see uprising like that here.
Yeah. Their congress passed some sort of bill that gives themselves more money and meal stipends, and then cut a major nutrition program that thousands depend on in the middle of a hurricane that destroyed subsistence farmers' crops.
My 82 year old grandfather, who has never been to prison, equated having to wear a mask everywhere to “like being in prison.” He also reads the print edition of Epoch Times

These stupid, stupid mother fuckers.
I am just going to assume the surgeons took out a good chunk of her brain when they removed that tumor. In any case, they need to be telling any friends or family they may have in Georgia to vote Mitch out of power so that there can be some effective business and individual relief bill passed.
Damn, sounds pretty concrete.
Fun fact: The House actually passed that bill, its sitting on McConnell's desk.
If you are able to watch the documentary series - The Reagans on Showtime, wow nothing has changed in this country
The ruling class in guate make our idiots look like good people.
I bet that if the federal government started paying small businesses and people Kelly Stafford would make a video crying and denouncing socialism.
our idiots keep their idiots in power though and have since... idk... John Foster Dulles ran our foreign policy (probably before that, banana wars and such, but that's as far back as I can remember)
How does Chuck Todd have a job. This is disgraceful
Neat little exercise we got going in trying to destroy democracy.
On the one hand, it’s maddening how pathetic and triggered the right is, in general, but especially wrt numbers. Media like Chuck shouldn’t entertain it. Period.
On the other hand, chucks words are an attempt at hypothetically quoting the mealy mouthed head of gsa
Biden is the apparent winner, and will be the winner on Dec 13th.
there is still more to go through, like the rejection of all of Trumps bullshit. Cross all the Ts, dot all the Is, game over.
