We discussed the homeless calamity affecting so much of the West Coast (Seattle had a potential convention complain), the impending SCOTUS decision on unions (Janus v. AFSCME Council 31), and Senator Lindsay Graham telling people off regarding working with Trump where they agree.
Thank you again Tucker Carlson and Fox News Channel for having me back on Friday evening, May 4, 2018. We discussed the ramifications of the EEOC suing Albertsons for a manager disallowing Spanish spoken amongst co-workers when NOT interacting with customers.
Businesses of course want to do what they can to best serve their customers, as they should do more! However, employees conversing amongst themselves in another language is protected behavior. It’s not like these employees were claiming to not speak English and refusing to help the customers.
More importantly this is a prime example of why big companies need greater scrutiny over how they approach hiring and managing employees. When I was a teenager working at McDonalds I’d speak German to a coworker who was in my German class just so we could converse without people overhearing our conversation. We were still getting our work done and high reviews, but it allowed us to talk without people eavesdropping. Why can’t these employees do the same?
Thank you to Fox News Channel and Tucker Carlson Tonight for having me back on Tuesday, May 1, 2018. What remains of the asylum seeking migrant caravan from Central America is at San Ysidro Port of Entry and our discussion was centered on whether and how many people the United States should accept.
Tucker argues that we are unrecognizable as America from 30 years ago and unable to absorb more asylum seekers and refugees.
I argued the opposite that we have great capacity to absorb and integrate asylum seekers and refugees as we have done for a very long time, plus we signed the 1951 Refugee Convention and have a Judeo-Christian obligation to care for them (see Exodus 22:20, Proverbs 19:17, Matthew 25:40, etc.).
Lastly, at the end of the interview I claim a financial benefit from accepting refugees – here are my sources (click for the link):
Thanks again to Fox News Channel and Tucker Carlson for having me on the show, Friday, March 30, 2018!
We discussed Hillary Clinton’s interview at Rutgers University where there was an intimation about fascism and dictatorship in the USA. Plus, Tucker and I discussed and debated the responsible parties and issues around speech and fascism.
Here is a little highlight from the segment:
And here is the full segment for your viewing pleasure:
I joined Fox News Channel’sIngraham Angle hosted by Laura Ingraham on Tuesday, February 20, 2018. The topic was the San Francisco homeless crisis which has over 7,000 people on the streets at any time leaving trash, needles, and feces on the streets.
BART Police Citizen Review Board commissioner Ken Loo represented another viewpoint from mine.
I argued that there clearly is a problem, the city made great progress addressing homeless veterans under Mayor Ed Lee, and that the feds are part of the problem and should be helping out.
Take a look at our segment debating the San Francisco homeless crisis:
Republicans have a new idea on this topic, with Senator Marco Rubio and Ivanka Trump leading the way. We discussed and sharply debated over borrowing against Social Security which is paid back with delayed retirement 1:1. Further, I suggest shoring up Social Security as I wrote about HERE.
Rubio has barely started drafting a paid leave bill, much less a broader legislative strategy. But he envisions an idea that has recently gained traction in conservative circles: allowing people to draw Social Security benefits when they want to take time off for a new baby or other family-related matters, and then delay their checks when they hit retirement age.
For instance, a person who would begin receiving full benefits when he or she turns 67 years old but wants to take six weeks of paid leave wouldn’t draw Social Security benefits until six weeks after his or her 67th birthday.
“That’s a new idea for Republicans who still identify it as something that comes out of the left,” Rubio said of paid family leave. “Forcing companies to provide it is perhaps an idea that finds its genesis on the left, but the notion that pregnancy should not be a bankruptcy-eliciting event is one that I think all Americans should be supportive of.”
As we ran out of time, I finished the interview with a polite thank you. Carrie finished the interview with “what a joke.”
Is it a joke to worry about disguising paid maternity leave as another punishment of women on the lower end of the economic scale?
On Tuesday, February 6, 2018, I joined Carol Costello on CNN’s HLNin studio. The stock markets are extremely volatile with a record point loss yesterday. Sean Hannity blames President Obama while President Trump has taken credit for every high. Should Trump take credit for the correction, too?
Here is a little clip.”…thanks to Pres. Obama who took us out of the Great Recession and put the policies in place that brought unemployment down. That trendline started in 2010 and sure didn’t start with this president.”
“What comes up must go down too. And so there will be another recession and this is going to happen potentially under Pres. Trump’s watch.”
