The Karen Collection

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Looking more and more likely that Ellen is really a Karen.
Her response in a letter to staff:

Ellen DeGeneres addresses workplace toxicity allegations, takes 'responsibility': 'My name is on the show'

Good words, we'll see if action matches them.

Rings of crocodile tears, but as you said we'll see. She's got a lot to lose.

Biden is seriously considering a "Karen" for VP, apparently. Not a good choice, IMNVHO.

I expect and want Biden to pick the woman that his polling says will help him win the best. A big part of that will be voter perceptions of policy history and ability to be POTUS in 2025 or sooner.

She seems qualified, but is not from a swing state.

Brad Garrett, Ray's brother Robert Barone on “Everybody Loves Raymond":

Article

Worth noting that most of the staff complaints began after Ellen halted studio production in March. Anger over layoffs or freedom to speak once laid off? Idk.

Haven't people been complaining about Ellen for years? I've never watched the show, but have heard criticisms for years, or I dreamed it.

I don't think so other than right-wingers and homophobes, but you could be correct.

Not me. It could have been just one person. I've never watched Ellen and never kept up with her news. She seems friendly enough in her commercials

Attacking A Retail Worker Enforcing Face Masks Is Now Aggravated Battery In Illinois

A new Illinois law signed by Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D) on Friday has made it a felony to assault retail workers who are enforcing the use of face masks and other public health guidance.

Illinois Senate Bill 471 targets anyone “assaulting or battering a retail worker who is conveying public health guidance, such as requiring patrons to wear face-coverings or promoting social distancing,” according to a statement from the governor’s office.

Offenders can be charged with aggravated battery, which is generally categorized as a Class 3 felony in the state and can result in prison sentences of two to five years as well as fines of up to $25,000....

DAILY DUMBASS – (Video) Lady Throws Shoe Boxes At Worker, Leaves Wallet Behind

A dumbass lady in Oklahoma threw shoe boxes at a shoe store employee after the worker told her to wear a mask before entering the store.

It was all caught on video at a Sketchers store in Oklahoma City, where the pissed of lady chucked two shoe boxes at the worker before leaving the store out of frustration.

But, whoops!

The dumbass lady left her wallet behind. Sketchers employees say that they have turned the wallet over to the police and pressed charges against the woman.

DUMBASS!

NYC Couple Removed From Ferry for Refusing Masks Say They Were Targeted for Being White

... The couple claimed to have a medical condition which precludes them from having to wear masks, but they were unable to provide such proof to police—and the man began smoking a cigarette throughout much of the incident....

Either the reporter missed something, or there's some white privilege going on. Doesn't the article say that the smoking man (with the Mask Are Unhealthy medical condition and who prevented the legal passengers from going home or to work)
refused to give anything but his 1st name to the cop and the cop only gave him a summons and asked them to leave?

What happened to: the ticket for no mask and the up to $1,000 fine, Down on the ground, Comply or else and cuffs?

The summons for disorderly conduct could lead to a $1,000 fine or worse.
I'm surprised that the cops only had his first name yet gave him a summons. Maybe the reporter has that part wrong.

I agree that 45 minutes is way too long, and that they should have been tased if not shot. That is how Blacks are treated, you crybabies.

The humane thing to do would be for somebody to put these pathetic creatures out of their misery. Can you imagine what a miserable person you'd have to be to be a "karen"?
