I'd love to see the Project Veritas dude (O'Keefe?) "nail" that job interview.

Diverse Voices... sounds like choir practice.

henry

Note: all the DNC's Silicon Valley tech friends are cis white males that behave badly to females. Look at the EEO lawsuits vs Googal, Facebook, Twitter, Apple. A gay CEO, a gal in the press as COO (who never has a clue that all the ads are fraudulent), or an SJW censorship team doesn't change that. You want someone who knows better than "p@ssw0rd" you need one competent voice*, not a diverse gaggle of nitwits.

*if it's not the sole criterion for the job, you will not get talent of any gender or cissitude.

Dave (in MA)

I once worked at a large company where a project was ramping up and they were looking for people to work on it, and an opening on that team was posted in the Diversity online bulletin board. It listed the qualifications and at the end, "Diverse candidates only. Non-Diverse candidates should not apply."

I posted a comment asking how a singular candidate could be "Diverse".

They took away my read access from the Diversity board.

Equifax had a white female music major as their CIO and that turned out ok. The DNC data will definitely be safe from the white male Rooskies.

Clarice Feldman

Heh--this is so stupid..RNC--take it away!

Buford Gooch

Haven't we reached peak SJW yet? If not, when? How much stupid must be piled up first?

anon ( AKA common man )

Now it continues mestasticize. An NPR editor accused by two females of sexual harrassment. All of these progs being raked over the coals. Such a shame...

matt, deplore me if you must

Such cesspits of bigotry and racism, as Reynolds would say.

What is sad, as our president would say, is that these organizations cannot seem to attract the best talent, cis or otherwise.

WikiLeaks, sex scandals, corruption, malware, Rooshian hacking; they just can't seem to maintain control of their own shit, much less anyone else's.

Apparently all of the geeks are off playing Grand Theft Auto and wouldn't qualify under today's standards anyway. So they're left with the gender/race studies crowd who can't think their way out of a paper bag.

Fat, dumb and stupid is no way to go through life Rosie.

Allah Akbar strikes again. Four DOA after some guy drives down bike path in NYC and runs them over. Stopped by school bus driver ramming him, best as I can tell. Cavuto, now.

Police shot him.

Witnesses heard the AA from the killer.

anon ( AKA common man )

Ding ding ding

Suspect screamed Allahu Akbar.

What do I win?

And in other news the sheriff Ackley want to bes have made a small chAnge to the narrative, nothing to see here.

The judge unsealed the GJ documents.

https://lawnewz.com/uncategorized/grand-jury-docs-have-been-unsealed-and-its-looking-even-worse-for-manafort/

The judge pierced the attorney-client veil and required testimony from Manafort’s lawyer.

Dave (in MA)

At that same company, a handful of guys were out after work having a few at the nearby VFW, cracking a few jokes. A couple of female coworkers happened to show up, saw the and joined them at their table. Apparently they didn't like one of the jokes, because one of the guys got whacked and escorted out the door the following Monday because one of them complained to HR.

Two of other guys I talked to later said they had no idea until they heard he was gone. They couldn't even figure out what he might have said that made them complain. To HR. About some jokes at a VFW post.

Porchlight

Terrible news. I'm reading 6 fatalities now.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

From clarice's Anna Wintour link last thread;

"Our excerpt from this book recounts that very day—when, she says, “my job was to smile, be strong for everyone, and show America that life went on and our republic would endure. . . . I wear my composure like a suit of armor, for better or worse.” After addressing the aftermath of the election, she recalls sitting in the car ride home to Chappaqua, New York, with her husband telling her, “That was a great speech. History will remember it.” It was, and President Clinton will be proved absolutely right.”

Did I laugh? Yes, yes I did.
They honestly must not realize how much they sound like Bennett Cerf or Robert Benchley gags writing incredible [as in not-credible] swill like that.

BTW I believe the correct term is pantsuit of armor.

My heart breaks for #NYC today. Thoughts & prayers as we monitor the situation.

Suspect screamed Allahu Akbar.

So, not terrorism then.

Clarice Feldman

Wintour and Hillary, a classic folie a deux.

Jack is Back!

Vogue in any language is vomituous. Anna Wintour in any photograph is in a funny mirror. The people who read Vogue are not the kind of people you want to have any discussion outside football techniques with.

rse,

Frederick has CC Algebra which I every night show him how to solve equations, graphing and inequalities the right and fast way. If you can't drain the swamp then feed the esacapees.

matt, deplore me if you must

"That was a great speech, Hillary. Excuse me while I go out for a cigar" is more like it.

Dave, what were a couple of women walking into the VFW for? Isn't yours for vets only, or are they vets?

maryrose

Jimmyk:
Are you ok what’re you are.
Reported 8 dead 11 injured.

Clarice Feldman

Iggy (aka on FB "the great Iggy") you're becoming a cult figure .

Extraneus

Do they have a working theory on motive yet?

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Friend called while coming on from the Y> CNN was on near her elliptical.

1. Clapper was on as their national security expert.

2. Screen crawl said "Gunman shouted 'God is great' in Arabic."

Gee, what would that translation be?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Being a cult figure isn't all it's cracked up to be.
For one, the pay stinks.
And evidently in this cult no nubile young chicks throw themselves at me. Leave it to me to start the only cult in history without nubile young chicks.
To paraphrase Bullwinkle; no doubt about it, I gotta get a new cult. :/

Jack is Back!

matt,

My two different VFW's were always open to the public but not public knowledge. Same with my American Legion post. Someone has to pay the bills and new Vets aren't as interested in the collegial as the WW2, Korean and VN guys.

In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!

Jane - not "in"

Yeah Jimmy, check in.

Sue

In our dry county (it isn’t anymore, you can buy beer and wine) our VFW was a private club and only veterans and their guests could go in. Those vets had lots of guests, because there was no limit to how many anyone could sign in.

Sue

8 people confirmed dead.

Hi all, I was in midtown, so miles away from the attack. In fact first heard about it here on JOM on my way home. Awful stuff.

NYPD: The NYC Halloween Parade will go on as scheduled.
=========================

I bet if it was a Christmas parade it would be cancelled.

Extraneus

For many moons, I worked as a middle manager for a major corp who'll remain unnamed for at least another four months (when I might retire :-)).

Anyway, back in the early 2000s we were bringing up a new facility and were desperate for people, but there was a hiring freeze. One day, we were told about a new program, which made it possible to hire what they called "gold star" candidates or something similar. I forget the exact euphemism.

In order to set up interviews, we had to go through resumes to determine which ones were not white males.

Uck Fu Allah!!!

Glad you are ok!
Hope your daughter is enjoying her school year.

If I was in NYC and in Houston Street I would pronounce it hewstun not howstun.

This is a rolled Twitter thread by @drawandstrike which connects the dots about what's going on.

ChiTown Lurker recommends it.

jimmyk on iPhone

Thanks, maryrose. "Enjoying" isn't quite the word--11th grade is brutal with SATs on top of heavy workload. Lots of pressure, mostly self-induced. But she's doing well, whether she can appreciate it or not. Two SAT subject tests out of the way, regular SATs on early December.

Sue

Seen on twitter....”I have a weird feeling that we won't be subjected to a Jimmy Kimmel lecture or national conversation about today's attack.”

mike in houston

Sue,
Houston, St was named after William Houstoun thus the pronunciation

Miss Marple the Deplorable

So cute!

henry

Makes more sense on Papadopolous timing. I'm not holding my breath that anything will be done with the info.

JimNorCal

The lawyer daughter at NYC reported in safe.
My understanding is they're pretty much chained to their desks and rarely allowed outside. An upside on a day like today. My heart goes out to families and friends of the victims ...

Sue

Mike,

It has a jarring sound to my ear.

Beester

Time to bring back public hangings. No more clean, comfy jail cells for terrorists

jimmyk on iPhone

"NYPD: The NYC Halloween Parade will go on as scheduled."

I would think the Halloween parade would be an obvious target for a Muzzie attack, given its overwhelmingly gay/trannie participation. But no doubt security is massive.

sbw

I suppose the NYC dude was a Lone Blitzer.

Eric in Boise

MM, as has been stated elsewhere the worst thing about a kid in that costume is getting her off of your porch. She won't go away.

"very sick and deranged person."

Donald Trump slights Muslims - again.

They are surprised by someone driving down the bike path in NYC? Did they not watch Die Hard With a Vengeance?

Or maybe not since he posted 7 minutes ago. Still I'd be worried.

Jack is Back!

Wish I had the money back I have spent on every boutique south of Houston (SoHo) but they were fun and a great way to show off to the ladies. This is of course before I met and married Mrs. JiB.

Don't know how it is now but this was back in the early to mid 90's when it was really peaking in hippness.

Prayers for all the victims of another terrorist attack. "Lone wolf" my ass.

henry

Jane, looks like it got sanitized about 10 minutes ago.

Jack is Back!

jimmyk,

When I first moved to SF (1992) and literally a neophyte to their lifestyle, I was invited to a bar/club in the Castro for Halloween.

You can use your imagination.

Beester

Even better Extraneus.

JiB, which Village Person did you go as?

So...Comey's a good guy now? Having a real hard time putting any faith at all in Mueller.

maryrose

Jimmyk:
What subject tests did she take?
Just remember to watch the time and answer all questions on December SAT.

maryrose

I always wondered why they called it SoHo.

Extraneus

So I see from Breitbart that John Podesta is getting a bit testy. What was the line? "You asshole, you've killed us?"

henry

Rocco, no good guys. Swamp critters all the way down.

henry

Is that Russian dude that met with George Papatorpedo named Tupelov?

One report on twitter says suspect shot in the ass

Bubarooni

Sounds like the DNC is hiring for the HR Dept rather than the IT Dept.

No skill required for HR. Just a well developed sense of superiority and an unwavering willingness to spout the latest cool words such as 'inclusion', 'diversity', 'intersectionality' or 'onboarding'.

They just make sh*t up and then expect us to understand what they mean.

They conducted an 'investigation' and forced me to fire a great tech guy over the summer. I then had to replace him using their new 'onboarding protocol'.

I eventually gave up on that jacked up system after about 4 months, took a day off to meet with placement office personnel at a couple of local junior colleges and got my replacement AND an additional employee in 3 weeks.

Hate'em all.

Stephanie Nene Not your normal Grandma

One report on twitter says suspect shot in the ass

A headshot that didn't kill him?

Pfft.

henry

Bubarooni, I keep getting spam from an SV "onboarding service." I can't imagine what trolls they would send my way. This is what the SV venture people fund any more. My rules are: managers hire, HR does paperwork. Period. (Oh yah, I built bots to do paperwork for HR. That dept is now one clerk).

Davod

Here's another thread by @drawandstrike, although this one isn't rolled into a format.

Warning, this will be more palatable to Veranda and Beach dwellers rather than inhabitants of the Ledge:

New thread.

Shot in the ass. Literal butt hurt. Nice. Now the boiling bacon grease.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

So the DNC's looking for a new cybersecurity guy?
Is a Russian considered a diverse hire?
Or alternately maybe they could get one of those homeless guys with the newspaper, so he could wipe their hard drives.

Can you imagine the contempt it takes for her fellow Americans to make that 'like with a cloth' comment?
I'd like to push her off a pier while she's wearing that suit of armor.

henry

Miss M, @drawandstrike's assumption is that Mueller is: a, competent and; b, honorable. It fails on both counts (see anthrax investigation). There is a remote possibility that a group of honest FBI agents can run with Mueller's grand jury findings. However it is more likely hot chick on a bike will show up here in Wisconsin with more beer. ;)

Extraneus

I wonder how many honest FBI agents there are. There must be some, but are they a majority?
