Medical Misinformation Agenda

Yes but….

also from the CDC:

Percent of adults aged 20 and over with overweight, including obesity: 73.6% (2017-2018)

Not so alarming in that context but providing such would put in a crimp in Bill Maher’s agenda.

Yes both liberals and illiberals (I refuse to brand this bunch conservatives) play to their preconceptions and typically present their opinions where and when they anticipate no challenge. Even programs like Real Time that are skeptical of both sides waste airtime on ridiculing their agitprop rather than ignoring those who have abdicated free thought for the party line.

    The one that sticks in my mind was the head of the SEC when the world blew up, Harvey Pitt. He was so morbidly obese he could barely walk. You think he could show up for work every day, not likely.

    What a disgusting city this has become. X it by 50 more and I hate to say this country sure isn’t what it was. And Kamala gonna bail em all out. The victim doesn’t matter unless they are a victim of “police violence”. Even if they didn’t comply. We have to be a fucking laughingstock. But double up your masks outside. 🙄 and check that goddamn privilege

        Yes “LOWER”, but still 10+ times more “qualified”: applicants than slots available.

          Probably closer to a 100 times more “Qualified Applicants”, with that Big Bad GED the main “Qualifier” for GED Cop and GED Firewhiner jobs 😎✔😎✔😎 40 years ago these jobs paid a middle class salary with at most slightly better benefits. Today these jobs are top 3%-4%, many top 1%, Fucking ridiculous joke.

            Much of the HUGE total “wages” that CA firefighters are paid (base + overtime) is in the overtime category, partly due to what I will call REAL overtime, and partly due to ridiculous (and also easily abused) work rules.

            The overtime (at least the “REAL” part) is supposedly justified by the high cost of non-wage benefits …. pensions & healthcare (while active and retired).

            Eliminate* those ridiculously excessive pensions and benefits and the cost of adding new workers might be less than the total cost of current workers …….. and certainly with better coverage and less-tired workers.
            ——————

            * replace the DB pensions with SS and a DC Plan contributions comparable to what Private Sector workers typically get from their employers, reduce the generosity of ACTIVE-worker healthcare to include a taxpayer subsidy NO GREATER than the average subsidy typically granted Private Sector workers by their employers, and eliminate ALL retiree healthcare subsidies …because THAT (meaning NOTHING) is what Private Sector workers typically get from their employers.

            It is NEVER cheaper to pay overtime in lieu of hiring more employees unless the benefits are gamed and manipulated. This ONLY works in Fantasyland…err…. Gov employment because they have a MOOPOLY. If GED cop and GED Firewhiner competed in an OPEN and FREE MARKET, like everyone else in real life does, 1) their benefits would be 95% LESS, 2) their salary would be 75% less, and 3) there would be NO OVERTIME. Period. It only works because it is: A) A monopoly; B) Government; and C) massive fraud/grift/collusion between the politicians and the public unions. When I hear a GED firewhiner say it is CHEAPER to pay that fucking moron twice their base salary in OT because of benefit costs I want to reach through my screen and biotch slap that mental moron back into the real world. They are fucking imbeciles.

          • I agree that a interview is an important PART of the hiring process.
            Read what I wrote. Using a 5-10 minute interview to end the hiring process for 70%, 80% even 90% of the applicants, is not a legitimate part of the hiring process. There is no way anyone, especially a GED Cop and a GED Human Resources Dork, can make a valid and reliable finding as to any applicants skills and qualities based on a 5 minute interview. If it was legit then next they would claim a 2 minute interview just 3 questions would be sufficient. Interviewing per se is not the issue. The issue is using a laughable 5 minute “oral interview” to base hiring/disqualification decisions on, for a $200K/year GED job.

          Lol. You don’t know half as much as you think you do. It is a dramatically more important job that what you do. (By the way, what is that exactly?)
          I think now more than ever, do to the radical leftists, it is important to hire well.
          I honestly don’t know what to say to someone who in this day snd age (or any over the last 30 years) honestly thinks that police chiefs turn away highly qualified candidates that would make them look good in order to justify high pay. You sound kinda stupid with that logic. It is all because no matter what, your default position is against the police.
          Next you’ll tell me the Chicago cop was in the wrong. See, TL, no one really talks about your job and questions every decision you make. A high salary and pension should come with that.

            Earth to E …………

            Final average Salary DB pension of the type routine in the Public Sector are long gone in the Private Sector (including where I work), replaced with very modest 401K contributions.

            And Safety workers (with HIGH “wages” in most places) certainly can’t claim they they DESERVE rich pensions & benefits to make up for lower wages.

            And if (AS THERE ARE) MORE than enough qualified candidates for open positions, that’s just MORE proof that you are over-compensated.

            That said ………… I think Reps. Maxine Waters and Rashida Tlaib are CRAZY !

            “I honestly don’t know what to say to someone who in this day snd age (or any over the last 30 years) honestly thinks that police chiefs turn away highly qualified candidates that would make them look good in order to justify high pay.”

            You twisted that from my point. My point being that there are far MORE qualified candidates than what Police admit to, and that Police knowingly deny the existence of that MUCH LARGE group to make it seem that there is a shortage of qualified candidates, helping to justify higher (than necessary) compensation.

            It is a fucking GED job Baby Einstein. And THAT is the exact type of “qualified applicant” they hire. They are NOT hiring Rocket Scientists. They are hiring GED and HS grads based on: 1) nepotism, 2) cronyism, 3) military brownie points and 4) affirmative action. The entire HIRING PROCESS is based on manipulation.

            Are you for real?? The CHIEF does not even do the SCREENING, that comes down to a 5-10 minute “oral interview” with a 3 person panel consisting one or two cops and one or two HR dorks. The entire “oral interview” is a fucking farce, 100% subjective, which is WHY they have it there in the first place. To MANIPULATE the hiring process. If they did testing and hiring based100% on OBJECTIVE standards, written tests that cannot be gamed and manipulated, the entire PD would be 180 degrees different. STFU with that Bullshit EG.

            You don’t know your ass from your elbow. From your prior post—-nobody gets double time for OT first of all. That’s dead wrong. 75% salary cuts? I think you have absolutely no clue how expensive it is to raise a family, being a single male for all of your 83 years. (Ok so I’d not know exactly how old you are, I just turned the big 5 0 this week—had a nice party at a expensive restaurant with about 30 of my closest friends and family—great time had by all.)
            I sit on the panel of 3 interviewers. Some guys look great on paper and they are absolute robots in person. The interview is the ONLY chance you get to see how a candidate is in person short of an expensive background check. TL would HAVE to agree that in the private sector, an interview in the process is damn near a given for just about any job. Lol.
            Firefighter? Yea who cares. Unless they go on Medicals; they do not have to deal with PEOPLE. Real people at their worst. It helps to get to know someone before you invest $$$ to train them.
            You’re dumber than TL when it comes to this shit.
            Even she would say “didn’t you guys bother to interview this guy?!!” When a robotic moron gets hired. Lol.
            It appears from your hostility towards an interview that you really didn’t interview well. Sucks for you I guess. But every department head and command staff has an obligation to interview who will be patrolling their streets armed for the next 25 years. Right TL? Or so you side with the smelly poodle 🐩

            What is a problem is that the result is so easily manipulated to make those who you WANT to hire (friends & family) look better than other overall-MORE-QUALIFIED applicants.

            The problem is you do NOT get paid based on the cost to raise a family, you get paid by your labor skill set, at least in the real world. For GED Cop it is a GED skill set. Do we need to pay the janitor of Taco Bell enough to raise a 4 child family? No. TB Janitor gets paid based on his skill set. BTW-I am not even close to 83, just like you’re not even close to age 50, mentally anyway, where you have the brain power of an 8 y/o 3rd grader.

            This is why YOU’RE a GED Cop (and I am 100 times more intelligent). A 5- 10 minute “oral interview” doesn’t tell you jack fucking shit. NO reasonable inference of skills and labor skill set can be gleaned from a 5-10 minute interview. NOTHING! BUT that 10 minute interview is where they disqualify/fail (or low score) 70% and more of the applicants, and the INTERVIEW process ENDS for ALL of them. Hence, the oral interview is bullshit. I had a friend that graduated from MBA school Valedictorian. #1 Baby. He was interviewed by Goldman Sucks, in NYC. They flew him from So Cal to GS HQ in NYC 2 times. He did 22 different interviews before he was offered the job and hired. He had 20-30 hours in total time being interviewed. Now, I am not saying THAT type of interviewing process is warranted for GED cop, but NO ONE can know what type of candidate they have based on a laughable 5 minute interview. So if they knock out 70% of applicants based on that 5 minute interview then the process is just how I described it, fixed/gamed/manipulated. And the 100% OBJECTIVE WRITTEN test is the best choice.

            You’re dumber than TL when it comes to this shit.
            LOL, yet me and TL are light years ahead of you in real world economics.
            Even she would say “didn’t you guys bother to interview this guy?!!”
            She would NEVER make a decision on hiring, or blocking ANY candidate, based on a 5-10 minute interview because that is simply not a valid or reliable way to hire people, not in real life. See my Goldman Sucks comment supra⏫.

            It appears from your hostility towards an interview that you really didn’t interview well. Sucks for you I guess.
            I am WAY TOO smart and intelligent to be a GED Cop. I would probably have to shoot the other dork cops, or shoot myself, so I did not have to deal with their incompetence. I told you the stories of dork employees I have worked with and how they destroy the morale, spirit and culture of cutting edge companies, eventually causing the companies to fail, go BK. The Cy Young winner I mentioned a few weeks back was Exhibit #1, and 100% on point. That situation was no different from Cop/FF/Gov employment, well except in REAL LIFE the company goes BK and is wiped out. That is the only reason you still have a job. I told the managers and owner of that company what a fuck up the MLB pitcher/Cy Young winner was, and that I was close to beating the living daylights out of him; and either he was going to start doing his job or I was bailing. They made their choice. I bailed out. Cy Young winner stayed and the company went BK within 12 months. 100% true story.

            But every department head and command staff has an obligation to interview who will be patrolling their streets armed for the next 25 years.
            No shit Sherlock, too bad that has NOTHING to do with what I have stated here.
            Right TL? Or so you side with the smelly poodle 🐩
            I have a C-Note, right here, right now, that TL not only agrees with me, but agrees with me BIG TIME and vouches for everything I have said here, or at least 90%.
            BAM!

  4. nobody gets double time for OT first of all.
    Read what I wrote again. I said the GED Wonders make as much as TWICE their base salary, sometimes 3-4 times base salary, with their unlimited OT. I never said they make “double time” for their OT. The $271K/year BART Janitor made 3.5 times his base salary with OT.
