Melinda that article about Flynn is a month old.

Chopper presser snippet! Video at the link. President is heading to North Carolina.

"I don't even know who they are," President Trump says when asked if he's willing to debate his challengers in the Republican primary and then proceeds to criticize their backgrounds.

"To be honest, I'm not willing to give them any credibility," he adds https://t.co/6IrksmvwYl pic.twitter.com/h4wMolS21y

Here’s the stupidest and most dishonest thing you’ll read today:

https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2019/09/08/shawn-rosenberg-democracy-228045

(Posted on FB - approvingly, as though it wasn’t a complete load !of moronic, slanderous crap! - by a friend who has a security clearance and whose wife occasionally shows up on CNN, MSNBC and worked at State under Zero and for the Hillary 2016 campaign)

Melinda

Clarice-

The second story in the WSJ column hits the word "Stakeholder" straight in the chest and puts the ATT CEO's name on that particular chest:

"AT&T ’s New Stakeholder

Now this is more like it. Recently this column noted the trouble AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson has been courting by pledging to manage on behalf of “stakeholders” who don’t actually have a stake in his business. But today brings news of a real stakeholder. And fortunately for the other real live shareholders who depend on the firm’s success to fund retirement and other needs, this new stakeholder seems devoted to the old-fashioned idea that management’s job is to create value. Drew FitzGerald reports in the Journal:

Activist investor Elliott Management Corp. disclosed a $3.2 billion stake in AT&T Inc., criticized the company’s strategy and called on the telecommunications giant to shed unnecessary assets.
The New York hedge fund wrote in a letter to the company released Monday that it would seek seats on the company’s board and challenged AT&T to sharpen its focus..."

OOPS.

Thread discussing the disparity of conservatives between hard sciences vs. humanities.

First tweet in the group is this:

The ratio of Democrat to Republican professors in different disciplines, according to a 2018 paper by Mitchell Langbert:

• Engineering = 1.6:1
• Economics = 5.5:1
• Physics: = 6.2:1
• History = 17.4:1
• Sociology = 43.8:1
• Anthropology = 133:1

==============


The thread also includes a link to Langbert's paper, plus other interesting information, both numerical and anecdotal.

Jack,

I thought maybe it was, but I am older and haven't dealt with younger engineers, so thought they might have gotten less conservative. I value your opinion since you have worked with younger engineers more recently.

I agree, that number should be listed as a fraction, not as an integer.

BREAKING: Van Filled With 1,000 Gallons of Gasoline Found in Downtown Baltimore Parking Structure Ahead of Trump's Visit https://t.co/GvompuV7eb via @gatewaypundit

Link goes to article in the Baltimore Sun.

James D.

Jimmyk @ 3:55

Among other things the author (and my friend, apparently) doesn’t know.

But there’s also the assumption that the election of someone they don’t like is an indication that democracy doesn’t work.

And the phrasing “far right authoritarian” to describe President Trump, which is crap.

And the phrasing “taken power” to describe Trump’s election and that of some of the Eastern European governments and Boris Johnson, which carries the implication of illegitimacy.

And the blind worship of “elites” whose job is to protect the citizenry from themselves.

The friend who posted this is, when talking about real-world stuff related to his actual work, is very, very smart. And as a human being in social situations he’s a good person and will always help a friend in need. And I’ve seen him with his kids, and he’s a fantastic father.

And I can’t square that with the hatred and garbage he posts on FB and the contempt in which he talks about the stupid and ignorant t and racist people who support the President. And I feel really hopeless about the future because there are a LOT of people like him and I can’t see how the gap gets bridged, how we get back to, “I think you’re wrong about politician/policy X and I’m voting against you, but who cares, let’s go get a beer” which is how a healthy society treats politics.

Dave (in MA)

MM maybe they're just trying to do something about the rodents.

Good first step, now on to the poppy fields.

matt - deplore me if you must

The President is going to Fayettenam? Should have a fired up audience. It used to be a very wild town, with Ft. Bragg and all. I would suspect he'll do a stemwinder.

To really piss off the Dems he needs to get to Raleigh - Durham or Chapel Hill. People will believe what they are told until they see otherwise.

Among other things the author (and my friend, apparently) doesn’t know.

Yes to all that, I could not bring myself to read very far into what the idiot was claiming, but I figured it was triggered by Trump's election. I'm sure "democracy" was just fine in 2008.
