If You're Wondering Where Pete Buttigieg Has Been...
« on: October 15, 2021, 08:15:35 AM »

He's been on maternity leave for the last two months.

I figure that whole "both parents get the same time off" thing is here to stay, but that should be for employees. A CABINET SECRETARY ha no business getting things like maternity leave. You accepted a great responsibility for 4-8 years when you accepted the position. Suck it up and do your job, or quit. They are all millionaires and can afford not to work.

These positions are not hobbies. Do your job or GTFO. We are in the middle of a transportation nightmare and the Transportation Secretary goes on leave. What if the President took two months off for paternity leave?

Maybe the president needs that paternity leave to unscrew his progeny. Might take awhile. Why two months for Pete? Things not healing fast down there?

Honk, honk!
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

An awful lot of comments come to mind, most of which would be inappropriate for a forum that - nominally, at least - is supposed to be "family friendly."

So I'll just say my already low opinion of Pete, his employer, and a social order that allows paternity/maternity/whatever leave has dipped even lower.   :facepalm:

The fact that he's out of the office is actually a plus, so let's give him some more time to bond with the kiddo.

A certain someone's flight was canceled and now he wants the airlines to be punished and be forced to hire more people.

He can't force them to hire more workers. Just about every critical position, from pilots to flight attendants to ramp-side personnel requires not only training but background checks. The airlines are trying to staff up, but it can't be done overnight.

I didn't even know that you got maternity leave for adopting kids.  Wonder how much leave the birth mother received?

I don't care where he is but I wish he would get someone working on gas prices. Not everyone wants to take it up the Buttigieg every time they fill up their tank.

Someone is working on gas prices, you silly neo-Trump fascist homophobe!

Gas prices are going up as intended and soon people will be forced to buy electric cars!

Well, those people who still have jobs because of the DonkeyPox recession, but still, WIN!
