Saudis recruited Twitter workers to spy on critics of Saudi regime, U.S. charges – NBC News

A couple of things here.

I guess I may have been one of the people that was spied on. I have been very very critical of the crown Prince MBS who ordered the murder of Washington Post reporter an American resident khashoggi. This murder was allegedly greenlit by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. This is indicative of why the United States of America should not be in bed with Saudi Arabia. they no longer hold oil over our heads so why are we still so close to a regime that murders and tortures there citizenry. One can be stoned by the Saudi regime for being gay. I always thought being stoned was people throwing rocks at you. Nope that’s not it. They dig a pit they put you in it and they slowly lower weights on top of you slowly crushing you to death. This is the government that we are friendly with.

Sure governments, even friendly ones, spy on each other. But using spies within an organization like Twitter to get information on Americans, individual American citizens is beyond the pale.

California passes bill to give wage, benefit protections to workers in gig economy – NBC News

It’s astounding to me how a political party, the grand old party, is going the wrong way, and if it doesn’t change into Extinction.

I was so pleased to read about this new law going to be past here in California protecting those in the gig economy. Uber drivers in Lyft drivers have been the stepchildren of corporate America for too long. Uber as far as I’m concerned is the worst of the group. I refuse to use their services. Can you read about how GrubHub and other food delivery services are screwing over small mom-and-pop operations and how they’re not actually paying their drivers unless they live in California because it turns out your tips are what GrubHub relies on to pay its employees. I’m willing to pay more to know that an employee has a living wage. I’m in no way rich but there is a thing called karma.

The reason I started off this post with the fact that a party is going the wrong way each time I read an article about workers getting more rights the people who are against it are always the Republicans. they are vehement Lee against this law that’s going to be signed by Governor newsom that protects the gig workers, why? That’s right they don’t rely on individuals for their campaign financing they rely on corporations. Until we get money out of our politics, our politics will be corrupt.

Auto workers union endorses Clinton | TheHill

The UAW whose members had their jobs saved by President Obama’s stimulus bill have no endorses Hillary Clinton. Dennis Williams, the president of the United Auto Workers, endorses Hillary Clinton today on Hardball with Chris Matthews. This is Major because they have a million organized workers and former workers who will go out and campaign heavily for Hillary Clinton. These are people that are not afraid to knock on doors and call until your candidate wins the White House. Congratulations secretary Clinton a well-deserved endorsement.

Gallup: U.S. Workers Regain Faith in Finding Good Job if Laid Off

This is bad news for the GOP that has been going on and on about how bad the economy has been under President Obama. We all know that we came back from a disaster and I think this number it’s pretty much the percentage of those who are going to vote for Hillary Clinton. By the way, the Gallup organization leans to the right and they must not be happy about these numbers as well. But I am thrilled and the American workers are too.
