    There should be an investigation. He's filed a whistleblower claim. That requires an investigation, at least at the IG level. If there are even any IGs left, Trump seems to be firing them all.

    Read this. This is War of the Worlds shit. There are so many stupid people in this world it is truly scary. The guy who tweets this crap is a fucking author. I don't think it is our resident author. Thank God

    No, there are circumstances where an employee cannot be demoted or fired.

    In Korea and some other Asian countries the wedding ring is worn on the right hand. When I was in Korea I switched my wedding ring to my right hand as did my wife.

    It might be technically legal for Trump to fire the federal government' s top vaccine development expert in the middle of a pandemic because the expert contradicted him on using untested drugs.

    It is also stupid, vicious, harmful to the country, and proves yet again how utterly unqualified to be president the occupant of the white house is.

    Yeah lets be real. 100% double standard. Someone beating my wife is apples to oranges and in the moment. I have control. I dont have control of others going out in the world, nor do I let it consume my emotions like your posts do.

    Of course i'm going to step in and stop violence with violence. but these people you wish death on are not being violent. They are expressing their opinions. Violate the law? fine, go to jail. I don't wish death on them though.

    How one can claim that they want people to die for humanitarian reasons beyond me and is a 100% doublestandard oxymoron. Sorry if you don't see it.


    I'm a humanitarian!!! But I want these people to die, so these other people can live....

    Got it.


    I have my limits and a line as to who I think should be removed from this earth, and it has more to do with rapist murderers than some who may be wrongfully trying to express and retain their freedoms in a peaceful manner. Even if it is wrong, they aren't injecting other people with the virus directly.


    How one isn't able to see the difference is... astounding.

    Semantics, IMO...he was removed from his post and demoted...and if I was him, I'd certainly consider it as getting fired.

    Interesting take from an economist that I follow:

    Constricted Consumption

    While politicians can argue about who has the authority to reopen the economy, in the end it is consumers and businesses that will make that decision based on safety and security. Early evidence from China (which is at best an untrustworthy data source), is not good. March retail sales fell 19%, suggesting the combination of behavioral changes and the material loss of wealth and income meaningfully held back consumption.

    I will wait until all the facts come in before I have a locked opinion on the situation.

    Interesting assessment by Graphika, a company that used artificial intelligence to dive deep into twitter. I'm not saying we should let the WHO off the hook here, but there are possibly some other factors that aren't being taken into consideration. Idk, I'm taking it with a grain of salt, but it does show there may be something else going on here.

    And just like that, Rick Bright’s claim receives a major blow. He was praising HDQ decisions in emails. Also, the Administration has been on record trying to demote him last year.
