    Sports officials - could the Law of Unintended Consequences have this apply to them since they need to belong to an officials organization and get games from an assignor?
    No, at least not with soccer. My certification is through the USSF, same as any assignor I work through. HS and College is similar, HS Iím certified through the State Association and I work through an assignor who contracts with the schools.

    Uber/Lyft/Doordash et al. all contract their drivers directly, theyíre just abusing the contract worker method for their own profit.

    Offshoring is good for repetitive, non value add activities like network monitoring, help desk, data center management, etc. Doesnít work well where creativity and critical thinking is needed.

    Not for much longer. The fourth largest economy in the world is about to require Uber, Lyft, et al to be called employees.

    I thought CA was 7th?

    You know how we go to single payer nationalized health care? Mandate employers carry full health insurance for all employees working at least 1 hour a year. Health insurance will be abolished within a month.

    Use greed to fight greed.

    I guess Jeff Bezos' divorce was just too much for him and his $125 billion net worth to bear.

    So, your president's rationale for yuge, debt increasing tax cuts was bull****?

    And yet, you still support him, after he blatantly lies to you. Over and over again.
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

    You would think joe would experience major cognitive dissonance when he hears his party repeatedly sell trickle-down. Saved by the single issue approach.

    I think he means that you seem to understand Reaganomics, trickle down, "fiscal conservatism," supply side, and "small gubmint" was always an obvious scam to steal trillions from the middle class and give it to the rich, just like we told you, and yet you still voted for it for forty years.

    Why? Why did you do that?

    That wasn't very smart.
