Sounds like they have personal problems. Not my concern.

How can Republicans have personal problems? They're not people.

How long until we find out he was embezzling?  I mean, if he's the only one that knows how to use the book?

Jason Kimball, who called Prentice a "mentor" on Facebook, wrote that Prentice had recently experienced "brain fog" and had difficulty breathing. After recording low oxygen levels, he went to Tampa General Hospital where doctors placed him on a ventilator, Kimball wrote. Prentice died the next day.

Kimball went on to suggest that Tampa General was "not a safe place to go," repeating a pervasive myth that the life-saving treatment at hospitals was the cause of many recent coronavirus deaths. Two days after Prentice's death, Kimball called for an investigation into Tampa General during the public comment period of the Tampa City Council meeting and accused the hospital of "intubating people illegally."

"You couldn't make him back down. If he believed in something, he'd get in your face."

Probably not a good idea since he had covid
 
2021-09-16 6:38:34 PM  
No oversight and nobody else had access?  Yeah that's not asking for embezzlement to occur at all.

A colleague of mine told me about his experience at his former job. There was a woman, let's call her Linda, who ran the software that controlled everything. All personnel records, all financial records, client records, databases, everything. They used to joke, "Linda better not get hit by a bus, or we're screwed, heheh." Linda died of a heart attack and it cost the company tens of thousands of dollars to figure everything out. There's a lesson here, bu don't tell the GOP, please.

Thought that too. Offed him to hide complicity. COVID is a more 'Murican method than the popular Russian defenestration.

That doesn't seem like a very good idea these days if what you believe is that the vaccine is unnecessary.

But I guess he already found that out.

I'm getting a kick...

Database worked over several years and several companies given to a single contractor, who subcontracted to a friend. Backed by higher ups, the contractor told those who worked on the database "you don't need to know about it; it's none of your business now".

Subcontractor worked strictly with contractor. Subcontractor went into the hospital.

Subcontractor didn't come out alive.

Contactor stayed on, until he learned that "Reply All" is a biatch.

I mean, if it had been "he died at home", instead of at a hospital, my inclination would have been that he stole a lot of money and ran with it, after faking his death.

I worked at a place where one single guy knew the coding for the company's proprietary analytics program. The company they'd hired to originally build it went bankrupt a few years later and the workers all scattered to the four winds. There was just the one guy who'd worked with them when they built it who knew how to run it, update it, fix it, etc. When I found this fact out I was like, "What the hell is the chief of IT thinking? He hasn't had you train a bunch of his team on the coding yet?" The guy just shrugged and said, "Dunno, but sure is great job security for me!"

Yeah, I was going to make a comment saying that this "software" he "developed" was probably a protected Excel workbook with some VBA macros.

On a shared network drive.

"You couldn't make him back down. If he believed in something, he'd get in your face."


And he was a COVID hoaxer and with that there are two things I can tell you about this guy.

He probably spread COVID to those around him like a $1 hooker infected with the clap.

And his breath probably reeks of apple.

So he was an asshole. Good riddance then.

This seems to be the Republican MO ; one single person in control of something, no backup, stopgap, nor checks. Just like they wanted TFG to have absolute access to the nuclear football regardless of his condition. The way they think that Biden could be impeached and removed, ignoring line of succession, and simply have a new election. The way they fawn over dictators.

You hear that patriots?  If you bravely refused the poison injection and come down with Covid (which is just the flu, right?), STAY AWAY FROM THE HOSPITAL.  Take some horse paste and a vitamin or two and ride it out at home.

And because your body won't be found for days, it will be just another 'natural causes' death, so you can juke the COVID stats at the same time. Everyone wins!

Ah, the demise of the GQP, hoisted and foisted by its own repetardoes (Quaylian silently shwa'd "e"). It's like watching a ship manned by landlubbers slowly sink because no one knows how water works. See them start to scurry at a faster hurry in a stridening gait before it's too late. To get a shot doesn't cost a lot except in pride, so choose between suicides: Admit you're wrong or sing a swan's song.
