  1. Trump enablers have a new mission...save Britney! https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/10/us/gaetz-jordan-freebritney.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&fbclid=IwAR03BD2qoqZ5LuabtDvo33SS1VUXeSCb1e8mWkFHs9XwycKN3UZBj0HAM1w
  2. A Trump supporter that doesn't seem to understand the concept of rules and consequences. What a surprise!
  3. Interestingly enough, my brother in law (leans very far left) works on a TV show that has had tons of celebrities guests over the years. Rush came on the show and my BIL was furious that he was even scheduled, but as a professional, he did his job. When I spoke to him after the taping, it took everything he could to tell me that while he thinks Rush is a despicable excuse for a human being, he was the most professional and courteous celeb that he had worked with on the show. He hated admitting that. I have heard similar comments from others that have worked with him as well. I still think he is disgusting and that the world is a better place now that he is dead. Just relaying what I was told. -OK
  4. I don't think there is a number that we could have afforded that she would have accepted. Her goal was to cause us pain and she accomplished that. The worst part is she changed attorneys every 6-12 months. They took it on a contingency because she kept convincing them there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. There wasn't and once they realized it, they would drop her and she would find another. In the end, I assume her lawyer got 33% of the $15K settlement. I doubt he was very happy.
  5. Unfortunately, we didn't have a choice. She just wanted to punish us and there was nothing that she would have accepted from us to go away. We made her a fair offer to buy her out of the business in the first place. When someone sues, you pretty much have no choice but to settle or defend yourself. She wouldn't settle, so we had to defend. She dragged it out for 4 years to inflict as much pain as possible.
  6. The woman was brought in as a rainmaker. 2 years later she hadn't brought in a single dime of business. We made her an offer of $75K to go away. Given the value of the company at the time, it was a fair offer. She sued for millions. This is a small business and that was more than several years of our gross. She dragged the suit out for 4 years just to cost us as much as possible in legal fees. We spent $250K defending ourselves from the lawsuit. In the end, the judge awarded her $15K just to finally put an end to it. Why should I be responsible for her legal fees? She already cost me $250K in my own fees just to be awarded $15K when I offered her $75 in the first place.
  7. That is definitely better that what the US currently has, but it still has issues. For example, years ago I was sued by a business partner. There were three partners total. One of them was not contributing in any way and costing the business money. Myself and the other partner decided she needed to go. Based on the value of the business, we made her a very fair offer which she refused and didn't even try to negotiate. She filed a lawsuit for millions. The case dragged on (because she wanted it to) for 4 years. She cost us over $250K in legal fees. In the end, a judge awarded her a total of $15K which substantially less than we offered her in the first place. Because she was awarded a settlement, she technically won the suit. So, we would still be responsible for the $250K in legal fees that it cost us to defend against the lawsuit, plus her legal fees.

    Q

    Absolutely, I couldn't agree more. Thanks to Q, more people voted for Biden than any other POTUS in history. They certainly got the vote out. Thanks to them, Georgia is now blue and will likely stay that way for the foreseeable future.
  9. Are you trying to claim that Trump had standards?
  10. In addition, he tried to get the military to pull their contracts with z-hills because TK Hayes (DZ Manager at the time) is a pinko, commie, liberal or some other such nonsense.
  11. Hey Ron, what happened to the post where you said that if Biden won the election, you would consider it divine intervention?
  12. I was wondering that myself, but given that I am one of the perpetrators, I thought it best to keep quiet.
  13. In case you were wondering, this is where you went from just being an idiot that regularly posts complete BS, to being a disgusting piece of shit.
  14. Knowing Trump, he is registered in every state already and has created a PAC to raise funds.
