Biden news conference underway.
 
2022-01-19 4:08:35 PM  
Again watching on a dodgy stream instead of the Hulu live tv package that we farking pay for because somehow at the top of the hour, the MSNBC stream has switched to completely dead air.

Last time this happened, it fixed itself at the first commercial break...

Meh.

AP:

Starbucks no longer will require employees to be vaccinated.

In a memo sent Tuesday to employees, the coffee giant said it was responding to last week's ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court. In a 6-3 vote, the court rejected President Biden's plan to require vaccines or regular COVID testing at companies with more than 100 workers.

Surprised there's not a live thread for Biden's news conference. It's the freaking president of the United States.

BIDEN: "I did not anticipate that there would be such a stalwart effort to make sure that the most important thing was that president Biden didn't get anything done."

"What are republicans for? What are they for? Name me one thing they're for," he says.

I've always wanted something like that.
In my rural town, golf carts are street legal.
But they suck to drive in the winter.

Something like that to tool around town in when the temps get in the single digits.

President Biden has finished his opening statement now comes the competition among the journalists to see which one can use the press conference as a way to advance their career at the expense of democracy

Hey, the big public radio station in Chicago, WBEZ, is buying the Chicago Sun Times and turning it into a non-profit. That combo will now go up against the private equity crocodile that owns the Tribune. Local philanthropies on board with the new entity. https://t.co/3F06KYS1eW

BBC:

Czech singer Hana Horka, who deliberately infected herself with coronavirus so she wouldn't have to get vaccinated, has died of Covid-19.
 
2022-01-19 4:40:57 PM  
Just had a good friend from high school quit her job.

She was a nurse at a Des Moines hospital for 22 years.

She is just too worn out by COVID.

She told me she is going to take 3 or 4 months off before she decides to return to the workforce.
She actually retired and has enough benefits to take off a few years easily.

My last day at my school was Friday. The difference in how I feel now versus how I felt last week is remarkable.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House told the U.S. chip industry to be prepared for new restrictions on exports to Russia if Moscow attacks Ukraine, sources said, including potentially blocking the country's access to global electronic supplies.

Last fall I looked into this one. Even contacted the DOT, but I was informed it isn't street legal in Iowa.

HUGE NEWS.

President Biden said of BBB: "It's clear to me that we're going to have to probably break it up."

He said Democrats need to "get as much as we can now, come back and fight for the rest later."

Manchin finishes by talking about WV Sen. Robert Byrd, James Madison's quote that the purpose is the Senate is to protect the people against the rulers... and the right to filibuster anchors this. Byrd said we cannot ever tear (it) down.

(Note: Byrd did support carve outs.)

I am so glad you are feeling less stressed out.

I had a friend who quit teaching last year. She now does online tutoring. She loves it.

This press conference is a litany of unanswerable questions. From the same press corps that never chased down Trump's serial lies in real time, as they were happening.

A dour sounding Murkowski on "dismal" state of things in the Senate:

"Maybe what has to happen is we just have to completely go off the edge, the train has to go off the cliff before you get the rescue crew down below trying to salvage things. I don't know."

Biden on Afghanistan: "There is no way to get out of Afghanistan after 20 years easily. Not possible no matter when you did it. And I make no apologies for what I did."

The news keeps getting worse for Cyber Ninjas.
Not only is it going out of business, but now its CEO faces sanctions and a warrant for his arrest if he doesn't answer questions under oath about his failure to turn over documents.

I'm trying to figure out if this is for everything or just today's stuff.

It looks like everything. The opinion refers to the Appeals court, which didn't rule on today's stuff.
