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?

I'm so contrarian that I didn't respond to the thread.

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.

Maybe he'll let the truckers drive at night.
