    • Phil, when I see stories like, “The List of Billionaires,” I think about questions like, “HOW did people like Bezos acquire their wealth, and was it WITHOUT the aid of favored government policies?” It makes me want to research the issue of “Crony Capitalism,” and other morally corrupt or unfair practices, that MAY have helped in their success....the world isn’t quite like it seems.

    • $3 is such a widely variable amount of money in terms of buying power, especially based on where you live. $3 might be ok in Iowa but its excessively low in San Francisco. The problem with the Decline Now movement is it doesnt really account for this variation. In all honesty, even $7 is Not Enough in regions like San Francisco unless it happens to be a block away, and even then its questionable because these apps give drivers their next delivery based on a queue system, not based on the individuals completion time. So you might take a cheap short distance delivery, but that just means you now sit around twiddling your thumbs for another 20 minutes before the app actually gives you a new delivery, so you havent gained anything by only traveling a short distance. In this way, as a driver, you want to take deliveries that are going to take a little time, to increase the likelihood you can chain the next delivery (have no downtime). Id rather take an 8 mile delivery for $15 than a 2 mile delivery for $7. All in all I think it all will work itself out organically in the end because new drivers get frustrated at low pay, and either quit or start declining more anyway, so there will always be a group of people following the Decline Now philosophy anyway, and eventually customers will get used to the rates that are fair in their area.

  • That last point is interesting. So if you don't get brought up in a cult you probs won't want to be in one when your an adult? Almost as if the only way to enforce religion onto people is through the fear of family rejection rather then any higher purpose. I've said for years the only difference between a church and a cult is the number of followers it has and it's tax break.

  • S'up, Phil?! I'm Natalie and my birthday just passed on Earthday! 🥳🎉 I've been a subscriber for years. I've watched you and your channel evolve and grow. I'm a true long-time subscriber and lurker, as I often don't comment but I watch and follow discussions! Grade A content! As I enter my 25th year, I am saving to apply to and attend Physician Assistant (PA) school, which you can imaging is very expensive. I am building my way to a career and saving every penny I earn to pay off applications and eventually school. I know everyone can use $5,000 but, in lieu of your giveaway announcements, I just want to say that I'm here. To be honest, I am really only commenting now because I like to plant hope in my brain--this is invigorating, just like that feeling you get when you buy a lotto ticket! Above anything else, I'm grateful that dreaming is free. I don't expect anything but hello, if you read this! Thanks for giving me newsy-type stuff that matters not only to you but me, and for loving my face without ever having seen it. Really, that's always enough. I'll enjoy the little spark of hope ignited by this comment. I'll keep on dreaming about making a difference as a PA. And, of course, I'll keep on watching your show! I'm happy to be here.

  • the existence of billionaires and their astronomical growth this past year is just indicative of the outrageous wealth gap in the US. If we had a fair tax system these trillions of dollars could be invested in communities and literally change everything. we can end poverty and homelessness and so much more if we end this stupid idea of trickle down economics. working class people do all the work and get pennies compared to these do nothing CEOs hoarding more money than they could spend in 20 lifetimes

  • Banning the headscarf (& most of the "anti-radicalization" laws) will NOT stop radicalization, it might even have the opposite affect, as it might alienate some people. The law on homeschooling is a little confusing, cuz shouldn't the government already have something like that in place to ensure home-schooled children are at least at the same level as their public school counterparts?

  • Ironically enough I think I started watching MORE regular tv during the crisis, mostly cause I like the new way they're doing alot of reality shows now. Like, seeing more people on webcams vs studio cameras makes it feel more...well, grounded in reality, and makes for some good drama when people can just spout what they want without worrying if someone's gonna get in their face. And some of it just reminds me of when my friends and I get together to chat lol

  • So I have now worked through Uber Eats, Grubhub, and Doordash. Doordash by far has the lowest payouts. The company is greedy and doesn't pay their drivers fairly, plain and simple. I totally agree with the concept of rejecting low paying offers as its unacceptable. I dont really agree with any shaming tactics tho to get that movement to progress. But i suppose when some of us depend financially on these apps as i do, you can get heated when people get in the way of improving the experience for everyone. Honestly from my experience, id say just leave Doordash for Uber Eats or Grubhub

  • 1st I gotta say BLESS YOUR HEART for assisting that sweet lady & 2 other beautiful bastards. $5Gs is huge for someone trying their best. Which brings me to my 2nd point, your question on billionaires... I'm infuriated. You just discussed the poor environment for Amazon employees despite them bragging about being the most generous . Bezos could give all his employees $1.2mil or he could give $5Gs to 200million Americans & still retain $100billion. To have the means to significantly help your fellow man but not giving a single iota of shit is disgusting.

  • Billionaires shouldnt exist. There is no reason for 1 person to have that much wealth. There just isnt. Especially when the way they get that rich is because they pay their employees like shit, make shitty quality of products that are made to break within a certain time so that people have to buy a new product and spend more money. They earn billions in profits and yet they require bailouts by the government instead of putting some of that money aside for emergencies like the rest of us do when/if we are able to and are constantly told to because no one is going to bail us out. It just shouldnt happen. Also, if the argument for giving a bailout is that an industry would become unstable due to their monopoly of that industry, that is a whole new problem to address because guess what, that shit shouldnt happen either.

  • On the religion angle, I think I realized why this pandemic is affecting so many people psychologically even though the death rate is minuscule compared to the Spanish Flu or the Black Death: the afterlife. Atheists believe this life is it and thus want to extend it for as much as possible, and as such are terrified of any disease that threaten it. Whereas back then, theists, while mourning the loss of a loved one, took comfort and relief that they and themselves moved on to a better life or are reincarnated. Think of a theist’s answer to if you want grandma to die? She’s had a good life, and we’ll see each other again in the Kingdom of Heaven.

  • The thing about asking people if they belong to a church, synagogue, or mosque is that you’re really only asking them if they belong to either of those three religions and not taking into consideration of the rest... I mean no, I’m not Christian, Jewish, or Muslim, but I’m Indigenous and while that’s not a religion as much as it is an entire culture and spiritual connection that is very much often overlooked - that question in my opinion is too narrow

  • I’ve never worked as a delivery driver but I currently work in a Cloud Kitchen that solely survives off platforms like Doordash, Uber Eats, Postmates, and Grubhub. Our restaurant sees on a tablet how long the driver will take to arrive, and when they’re there. We’ve seen some Doordash and Grubhub orders hitting over an hour and a half waiting for a driver to arrive to pick up the food. We’re located in the smallest state in the US, so realistically unless someone is ordering from across the state the drivers aren’t driving more than 20 minutes to the customer. While again I don’t know how the algorithms work for the apps, these movements have been taking a big toll on the Cloud Kitchens that began because of the new availability of delivery services. While these drivers are fighting for their own pay and that’s understandable, they’re also causing the restaurants to have cancelled orders and bad reviews from food that was delivered cold, and that costs us restaurant workers money and puts our jobs at risk.
