Re: “The diversity open line

Thou shalt have no other unions before Me."

"Union busting for God: Catholic colleges invoke 'religious freedom' exception to block employee union organizing.

"The 2013 death of 83-year-old Duquesne University adjunct Margaret Mary Vojtko helped open up a national debate about the precarious lives of the estimated seven hundred thousand college faculty in America who teach without benefits or security of employment, often at the same pitiful wages that drove Vojtko to sleep in her office while she battled cancer.

"While Duquesne faced national criticism after Vojtko's death, less discussed was the fact that, as a Catholic college run by the Spiritan religious order, Duquesne's mission statement, which includes 'profound concern for moral and spiritual values,' appears not to extend to its contingent faculty. Duquesne has repeatedly engaged in legal battles to block its adjuncts from forming a union with the United Steelworkers (USW) invoking the so-called 'religious freedom' exception."…

Jared Kushner flunks first diplomatic test by being water-carrier for Netanyahu, making Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas "furious."

What experience in the Middle East religious-warfare tinderbox does Jared Fucking Kushner have? International diplomacy isn't a game. And it's not shady real estate dealings in New York, either.…

Re: “The diversity open line

"President Donald Trump's proposed budget for the [FBI] will severely impact their ability to do their jobs and will result in cutbacks in operations at all levels.

"Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe told the House Appropriations subcommittee this week that the budget proposal from the Trump White House will have a devastating impact on the agency that is still reeling and leaderless since Trump fired former Director James Comey."

"'It will certainly impact us in many ways. It is a broad and deep reduction that will touch every program. it will touch headquarters. It will touch our field offices,' McCabe explained to House members on Wednesday. 'It is a reduction that is not possible to take entirely against vacancies. It's a reduction that will touch every description of employee within the FBI. We will lose agent positions. We will lose analyst positions and, of course, professional staff."

Republicans really, really don't want Trump and his administration (and therefore the Republican party) investigated.…
