The law exempts anything from Disney because it owns a theme park in Florida. It's unserious, unconstitutional, and corrupt.

All he's saying is he now finds the political advantage of yelling at these companies bigger than the financial one.
None of this was conservatism and shouldn't have been done to begin with. You don't just start having integrity on office because you dislike the views of those you oversee. That's kind of pathetic

The year is 2021 and a doctor is telling a friend they don't want to do the surgery for her aggressive endometriosis because of fertility. Not saying "hey here's a risk to consider," but actually encouraging her to live like hell bc babies.
MAY I SAY fuck that
Also the dumbass doctors saying they won't do her surgery - leaving her as is can prevent fertility too!!! What absolute assholes. 2 gyns called me crazy before another was like UH U HAVE SEVERE ENDO
For those who don't know, endo and autoimmune diseases are regularly denies, then not treated, and finally treated. What sick doctors who don't know what to do will do to you would blow your mind

This op-ed is real smooth brain…

There HAVE been proposals that would cause this problem, but companies change strategy ALL THE TIME due to threats of regulatory changes [pic 1]

And pic 2 is utter nonsense. 230 was written by @WydenPress and Rep. Cox...
@WydenPress to clarify liability law. History via them:…

And it isn't any special immunization like in the other cases and it doesn't even demand any particular behavior! It just says each is liable for his own speech
@WydenPress Also there's no threat of prosecution.

For small businesses, online tools are key to survival… @timesunion

"According to a UPS survey, 41% of small businesses changed course, with 65% doing more business online."

"Online sales have doubled compared with the same period in 2019. An interesting consequence of the pandemic has been the sudden influx of NYC residents to regions north, leading to an increase in sales of upstate-branded products."
"I am thankful we have digital platforms such as @Etsy, @instagram, and @Google to provide affordable services to keep business humming during this difficult year — from connecting with suppliers to communicating with customers."

love @RonWyden and Cox xoxoxoxoxoxoox

"They sought hundreds of millions in damages from Prodigy, simply for hosting the comment on its platform."
"Prodigy argued it should not be responsible for the content its users create. It had no way of knowing whether Stratton Oakmont was a fraud or not and had never expressed an opinion on the subject. But a New York court held in favor of the real-life Wolf of Wall Street..."
"The court specifically cited Prodigy’s efforts at content moderation, aimed at prohibiting online harassment, as the reason for treating it differently than online platforms where “anything goes.”"

NEW at @RSI!! @courtneyatlas and I did a post updating the ideas we had in March to highlight what we still need to be doing: Licensing reform for mobility and scope of practice for medical professionals, telehealth, access to care broadly, etc.

Basically: Mobility + capacity
Temporary reforms are good. Permanent ones are better and allow for better access with regulatory certainty that temp fails to provide.

1) UNIVERSAL LICENSING RECOGNITION in mold of model in AZ, @dougducey being the first to do it. And have provisions to expedite in emergency
Medical professionals have to be allowed to help in hotspots now, and they should be able to make permanent moves when they so choose. And 19 states have special statutes to protect volunteers during emergencies!!!
