Comment BS (Score 2) 131

Most contractors don't set prices. They can accept the price or move on. Can't turn down too many customers. Well guess what, you can't go too many days without coding and remain a contractor either. Can't drive whatever car they want. Nope...you need to have a tool that meets a modicum of professionalism. Yes, you're a contractor...but when you go to meetings you are required to dress appropriately...or you lose the privilege of being a contractor.

Comment First off. (Score 1) 131

Nearly EVERY taxi driver is a private contractor. A company owns the cabs, and the licenses. They then lease these out to the cabbies to drive. No benefits. No W2.

Second, why are these laws ignored? I work for a company on a government contract. We have dictated to us: where we sit, what machine we use, and when we have to be there for work.

"Specifying "you may only use DeWalt tools on this contract" can be enough to have your contractors qualify as employees."
But they're not specifying that. They're specifying that you need to have your own tools. And that they need to be contractor grade. You can't show up to work with a Black and Decker drill from Walmart and a battery that lasts 20 minutes. Nothing wrong there.

Let's get to the real crux of the matter, W2. I think we need to eliminate the distinction of W2 and contractors. I think we need to eliminate company provided benefits. Shift the entire benefit industry to groups. Trade groups. Regional groups. Whatever.

But let's have honest accounting. No more should our employers pay half the Social Security Tax. We should receive that money, and then we should pay the entire tax. Cause frankly, contractors get abused and the government is never going to protect the individual on those abuses. So let's end that distinction.

1. It was note, the photographer even had trouble getting up to the monument.

2. Go look at the link I posted, it clearly visibly debunks the media representation of an empty ceremony.

3. I am not saying Trump's was bigger than Obama's. Just that Trump's was very large too, one of the larger ones in history.

4. Please note that most of the metrics claimed, such as metro transit statistics are meaningless. This was a Republican, most DC residents are not Republicans. Therefore they tend not to use local transit. Most come out of state/district.

1. Published a comparison photo of President Obama and Trump's inaugurations that was completely fake and disproved by the gigapixel image that in fact showed that President Trump's inauguration was packed to the tents at the Washington Memorial.

2. Claimed that President Trump said soldiers who commit suicide are weak. Never said that. Go to youtube and see the video of what he actually said.

3. Claimed reading Wikileaks was illegal, except for the media.

4. Gave the debate questions to Hillary's campaign. Thus their portrayal of a fair debate was fake.

Seems like a lot of fake to me!

So basically, the bunch of western news who have very different published statements regarding Crimea and Syria. Both of which I can tell you for a fact, that Western news media outlets have pretty much lied their asses off regarding aspects. And that they have completely covered up America's roles in both debacles.

You're right. Fox tends to report news with a heavy bias. CNN makes shit up.
