Twitter Employees Beg 'Reckless' Musk
Not To Fire Them, Demand Dignity

Original Article

Twitter employees have penned an open letter to soon-to-be boss Elon Musk and the Board of Directors begging to keep their jobs, after the Washington Post reported that Musk is planning to get rid of nearly 75% of the company's 7,500 workers - whittling Twitter down to a 'skeleton' staff of just over 2,000. "Elon Musk’s plan to lay off 75% of Twitter workers will hurt Twitter’s ability to serve the public conversation," reads a draft of the letter, which has not yet been published. "A threat of this magnitude is reckless, undermines our users’ and customers’ trust in our platform, and is a transparent act of worker intimidation."


Where will they go NOW to fact check? Google? Google's next. Musk: Make my day!

Memo to Twitter employees: if you want to keep your job in the upcoming reorganization, don't accuse the new owner of being "reckless." It's not YOUR company.

Oh this is rich! Communist sympathizers begging a capitalist for compassion! Elon should give them all a one way ticket to the communist country of their choice where they'll be welcomed with open arms and they can apply their trade working to censor free speech.

Twitter, much like the US Congress is utterly corrupt, poisonously partisan, and turns a blind eye to their own evil. Getting rid of 75% is merely a good start. There's still much to do to fix the evil beast.

All of them should be fired and blacklisted for their allowing Bot-Sentinel and other bot companies to take over the social media. Virtual thugs and bullies given paychecks and support by Twitter. Now they should face the real world with the fecal matter they flung at innocent people and all those who committed suicide because the bot-companies were given succor.

In that environment the only legit way to maintain your dignity is to resign. At least in my State, it is a private contract that may be terminated by either party. Your choice, do you wish to be declared redundant, or attempt to move on the another opportunity with your head held high?

On Fetterman, Left-Wing Media Insists

In a couple of weeks, John Fetterman will be back home in Braddock, Penn., in his loft apartment, playing with his kids and continuing to recover from what we now know was a devastating stroke. It’s what he should have been doing since he suffered the stroke in May. But because he and his campaign hid the severity of his condition from the media, his party, and especially his opponent, Mehmet Oz, it came as a shock to see the 49-year-old giant of a man in such a confused state. Whether it was due to hubris or simple denial of reality, Fetterman’s vulnerabilities were exposed for all to see.

Watch the full question, and then watch the full answer. It feels politically and medically unethical to have Fetterman run for office right now. If the media can't cover this very serious issue after the debate, they are truly hopeless. — Steve Krakauer (@SteveKrak) October 26, 2022 The media could have pushed for the truth after Lt. Gov Fetterman’s stroke, instead, it continued to favor the woke Frankenstein because he had all the left views. As the campaign continued, it doubled down on the cover-ups because the media was now stuck with a candidate that it was beginning to realize was broken, but was now the standard bearer of its party.

John Fetterman and Dr. Mehmet Oz are contesting for the Pennsylvania Senate seat to be vacated by Republican Pat Toomey. It’s a marquee matchup that has taken on horror-movie elements as Democrats and their media adjunct seek to push Fetterman over the finish line. Hobbled by the aftereffects of a severe stroke, Fetterman is obviously unfit for high office. He is fit for the doctor’s office. They met last night for their one and only debate preceding the election. I watched it live on NewsNation. I discovered that NewsNation is carried on channel 810 of our cable feed and that it is the current home of Chris Cuomo, whose show followed

President Biden’s daycare minders in the White House had a project with high degree of difficulty to complete yesterday.

You see, Biden doesn’t know what he is saying or doing. How could his minders explain it? It wasn’t easy. Someone running the show slipped a note to Jacqui Heinrich of FOX News. Hey, he was thinking of the fraudulently titled Inflation Reduction Act when he referred to his loan giveaway. It could happen to anyone.

Everywhere I go, people are mystified about President Joe Biden's economic agenda. So few of the policies comport with basic common sense that I'm asked the same question over and over: Is Biden intentionally trying to take a wrecking ball to the economy? Is this all part of some diabolical plan, the "great reset," to end our system of free market capitalism and replace it with some form of big government socialism? Biden keeps saying that he wants to be a historic president who will "transition" the country into a new worker's paradise where no one uses fossil fuels or electricity or cars and equality is paramount, ahead of growth and prosperity.

I have to wonder how George Zimmerman felt upon reading about the shooting death of Kansas City firefighter Anthony Santi, 41. Ten years ago, after getting his head pounded into the concrete for a minute or more, Zimmerman famously shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. Although Martin attacked the much smaller Zimmerman without provocation, and eyewitness evidence supported Zimmerman's claims of self-defense, the media and the woke mobs frightened state prosecutors into charging Zimmerman with second-degree murder and ruining his life. Santi's shooter, by contrast, faces no consequences whatsoever, not even a review before a grand jury. According to the Kansas City Star, Jackson County prosecutor Jean Peters Baker,

President Biden premised his cancelation or forgiveness of student loans of up to $20,000 per person on “the financial harms of the pandemic.” However, a Wall Street Journal editorial duly noted that “the government had halted student loan payments since 2020, holding borrowers harmless. A month before he declared the pandemic ‘over,’ Biden extended that student loan pause through Dec. 31.” Biden’s “plan,” as he calls it, is blatantly unconstitutional. It’s not unfair to say that everything about it is wrong. The only question is whether any party has legal standing to challenge it. Indeed, Biden has altered the “plan” since the original announcement to exacerbate the standing issue for possible challengers.

There are approximately 1.1 million handguns already in Canada, meaning Mr. Trudeau’s desire to “remove these deadly weapons from our communities” means the Mounties are going to be very busy grabbing guns.

At this point, it would save everyone time if Democrats could simply point to a policy agenda item that isn’t going to save democracy — if such a thing exists. If Republicans vote, they are killing democracy. If they don’t vote, they are killing democracy. The only way to “save democracy,” writes The Washington Post’s Max Boot, is to empower one-party rule — a position that probably sounds counterintuitive to anyone with a middle-school education. “Now you need to vote to literally save democracy again,” contends President Joe Biden, or we will lose our “fundamental rights and freedoms like the right to choose, the right to privacy, the right to vote

Biden has been an absolute goldmine and again provided more food for thought for those who prefer a president who can communicate.

Two weeks before the most important off-year elections in the history of the nation isn’t a good time for Democrats to realize that the narrative that they’ve been relentlessly pushing has been a complete failure, but that’s the reality for a party that bet everything on portraying the January 6, 2021 chaos at the Capitol as a serious effort to overthrow “democracy” and is only now beginning to realize that voters could care less. The unwelcome intrusion of reality into the bubble inhabited by the coastal cultural and political elite isn’t sitting well with many, including MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough who was flummoxed by the responses of a focus group
