    Free Republic ^ | 07.03.20 | Freedom56v2
    One of my children is considering a move to Billings to take advantage of a good career opportunity. However, no one in our family or circle of friends has been there. So I would really appreciate any input Freepers familiar with the area can provide! Thanks much :) *We have lived in Fargo and one of the kids lived in Grand Forks, North Dakota--may be some similarities for comparison....

  • BREAKING: (Governor) Evers’ (D, WI) DHS outing businesses with COVID cases

    Empower Wisconsin ^ | July 1, 2020 | M.D. Kittle
    MADISON, WI — Empower Wisconsin has learned that Gov. Tony Evers’ power-grabbing Department of Health Services is set to soon post the names of all Wisconsin businesses that have recorded at least two COVID-19 cases. This government-sanctioned disclosure will slam a Scarlet Letter on Badger State businesses already reeling from the pandemic and state and local lockdowns, business advocates say. “Any business that is confronted with this report and suffers the unintended consequences, that’s equivalent to the old saying, Where do you go to get your good name back,” said Brandon Scholz, president and CEO of the Wisconsin Grocers Association....
  • VIDEO: Media Hits Spectacular June Jobs Report With COVID Caveats

    VIDEO The reaction of much of the media to the fantastic June unemployment report reveals why they have been in overdrive recently hyping the rise in Coronavirus cases. Of course, included in those cases are asymptomatic people as well as those who have RECOVERED from COVID-19 but have antibodies in their systems. Meanwhile, if you have been following my videos, tweets, and Newsbusters reports, then you know that while the media continues to report the increased cases they RARELY reveal the very important fact that the daily death numbers are in a steep decline. Since the media is DESPERATE...

    Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 4.8 million in June, and the unemployment rate declined to 11.1 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. These improvements in the labor market reflected the continued resumption of economic activity that had been curtailed in March and April due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and efforts to contain it. In June, employment in leisure and hospitality rose sharply. Notable job gains also occurred in retail trade, education and health services, other services, manufacturing, and professional and business services. This news release presents statistics from two monthly surveys. The household survey measures...
  • Vanity: CEO of Company Apologizes for "role our heritage companies played over 100 years ago to perpetuate the atrocity of slavery"

    Company E-mail ^ | July 2, 2020 | CEO of a Top 10 Bank
    I got an e-mail from the CEO of my employer, a top 10 bank, apologizing for "role our heritage companies played over 100 years ago to perpetuate the atrocity of slavery". He said the company will invest some money in minority communities and companies to "demonstrated a sincere commitment...to affect positive change". Nothing in the e-mail about disgorging the compensation of the CEO or the companies profits for reparations.

    Corporate Intranet Site ^ | July 1, 2020 | Me
    Well the company I work for, a top 10 bank, just posted an item on the company's intranet site saying the company supports "The Equality Act". It claims "there is absolutely no place hate and discrimination of any kind". I guess that if I am concerned about women sports and religious freedom I am a "hater". The most ridiculous thing is the company claims "no one should ever fear live in fear for who they are". Yeah right, I know what would happen if I state I am opposed to the "Equality Act".
  • Social Credit Score Is In America: Visa Blacklisted My Business and My Family for Building Gab

    Gab ^ | June 26, 2020 | Andrew Torba
    As many of you already know we learned last week that Visa blacklisted Gab and we are now unable to process credit and debit card transactions. We learned more information this week and I think it’s important that I share it as a warning for others. It’s not just Gab that is blacklisted. It’s also my family. In China there is something called the Social Credit System, which was developed by the Communist Chinese Party as a “national reputation system.” This system tracks the “trustworthiness” of individuals, businesses, and organizations. “Trustworthiness” here means total and complete submission to the Chinese...

    If President Donald Trump can push his H-1B reforms into 2021, he will dramatically increase the marketplace power of U.S. college graduates, complains a top manager at the Fortune 500 business group the Conference Board. “If the [H-1B] suspension continues beyond 2020, recruiting high-quality tech workers could become much more difficult,” wrote Gad Levanon, who heads the group’s Labor Market Institute that has repeatedly recognized that a smaller supply of workers tends to raise wages and salaries. Under Forbes‘ headline, “Tech Workers Were Already Hard To Find. The H-1B Visa Suspension Just Made Recruiting Them Even Harder,” Levanon wrote: Hundreds...

    Powerline Blog ^ | 06/30/2020 | Steven Hayward
    At the present time the polls look bad for President Trump. How bad? Credible polls show him 10 points behind Biden, and struggling in key swing states as well as what should be easy states, like Georgia. His campaign seems listless at the moment, lacking a clear message or strategy for turning around his bad poll numbers. ThereÂ’s a story up on Fox News wondering whether Trump might drop out of the race. Is this story based on anything? Since we know Trump follows Fox, this might be a planted story in hopes that it will shake him up...
