(FROM THE ARTICLE: House Republicans for years have railed against a provision in federal law granting legal liability protection to websites for posts by outside commenters and contributors. Now they’re in a position to do something about it. At issue is Section 230, a wonky-sounding part of the 1996 Communications Decency Act that protects the online hosts of third-party content. Though much of the broader law was struck down as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, Section 230 has, for a generation now, remained on the books.)

The communist government controlled every aspect of your life and job, including where you lived. Most of all, the former East German told us that he had no rights. The government could search you or jail you at any moment. It was even possible for someone to just disappear and never be seen or heard from again.)

Outrageously, disgustingly, and unacceptably, the Republican Party lets people seek and hold government and political offices as Republicans who reject some, many, most, if not virtually all of the planks in the Republican Party platform.)

— Under 40? Here’s A Workplace Threat You Should Think About – Sheila Callaham (COMMENT: Prospective federal employees who are Republican, White, male, non-veteran, Protestant, German American, and/or those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time should be advised a) that their careers will be wasted and they will be gotten rid of if they fail to make GS-13 (currently $104,915) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $123,978) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $145,831) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $176,300) by age 40 and b) that extremely few federal employees make the aforesaid promotion deadlines.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: What is one workplace threat that every employees under 40 should think about? The same threat facing every employee over 40. Ageism. Ageism results from bias, stereotypes and assumptions. It occurs whenever age is used to diminish the competency and capability of another. Not only are people living longer, they want to work longer to build adequate retirement savings to support their longevity. The EEOC reports that 67% of workers aged 40-65 plan to continue to work after they turn 66. Unfortunately, workplace longevity is not keeping pace with aging demographics. Blame ageism for that. Sixty percent of older employees report experiencing or observing age discrimination and almost 95% say it is common. In the tech industry, 70% have experienced or witnessed age discrimination. When people think of ageism, they generally think of its impact on people over 50. In reality, age bias can negatively impact people of all ages. This is one of the most pressing reasons why ageism must be addressed collectively. Otherwise, older people will continue to feel the brunt of discrimination, and younger people will age into it again.)

— COMMENT: Ever-increasing, Democrats a) run America and b) shout at citizens of foreign countries that Republicans are White supremacists, Nazis, KKK members, haters, racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all. What percent of naturalized citizens vote for Democrats?

— COMMENT: Democrats say “A CPA Diversity Report: Uncovering the Barriers to Success” Ever-increasingly, Democrats and RINOs demonize, denigrate, and condemn older White male CPAs as being barriers to CPA diversity success. In 1997, when I was 49 years old, my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” so that they could give my Black CPA subordinate my job and my preferred corner office, and that is exactly what they did.
