A brief summary of what this is all about, with every effort made not to sensationalize or politicize it: An employee at Google wrote a manifesto of sorts about gender differences and political correctness at Google; this angered several Google employees and people in the general sphere of tech; the employee was then fired. These are the bare facts, and… Read more »
Lately, the refrain I’ve seen from several people involved in the national news media — mostly CNN staff, but also a few from the New York Times — has been, “well, we just made an honest mistake. Aw shucks. Can’t we just make a mistake?” Yes. Yes, you can make mistakes. Nobody is perfect. The problem with the “mistakes” made… Read more »
Disclaimer: I grew up Southern Baptist, but after a personal run-in with a holier-than-thou pastor/preacher/holyman, I will never again set foot in a SBC church. I have forgiven him, but I understand that I am not welcome. Several weeks ago, some well-meaning, short-sighted folks proposed an anti-Alt-Right measure be taken up by the Southern Baptist Convention. The measure basically bought… Read more »
Let me start this post with something that I don’t often have the occasion to say: I am not a fan of Dr. Who. This isn’t because I dislike it, I just… never got into it. I have zero feelings at all toward the show, but a slight bit of repulsion from some of the more over-the-top fans. (Often, the… Read more »
Via Larry’s opinion piece, Mike Glyer is a Scumbag, I have discovered Jon Del Arroz and will be shortly reading his works and doing reviews. I have had it up to my neck with people like Mike Glyer. I don’t have much else to add other than “Me Too!” to what Larry said.
In a move that should surprise no one, the Justice Department has arrested someone for leaking classified information. In further not-surprising news, her social media is filled with leftist bullshit (including “being white is terrorism”, in the purest form of white guilt I’ve ever seen). Furthermore, she has a funny name. Now, were I the attorney general, I’d personally take… Read more »
Evil. Losers. When I first heard it I thought it was just kind of a weird, goofy thing the President said. It sounds like an off-the-cuff reaction — I didn’t know what to say when I first heard about the attack, either. First I assumed, naively, that there must have been a pyrotechnic issue. It has constantly become worse —… Read more »
I have a memo here from James Comey that says I can take the day off.
I’m not sure how much of a post this will turn into but I do want to link to ESR discussing how the code is all that matters. This is in response to the (now regularly occurring) attempt to ostracize someone over something in their personal life or belief system. The gist, for those of you who don’t want to… Read more »
I haven’t often found myself in a situation that involves the possibility of my own death. I cannot remember the last time I came this close outside of being put under for surgery — which, being at a hospital, is not a bad place for the risk of anesthesia — but it’s been several years. Thursday night, I’m heading to… Read more »
