Yes, me too. I even found a discussion about this on the web.
Only the Sith deal in absolutes!
Your employer is not, in most cases, your friend.
Your employer is never your friend. If you have a friend you also do business with, you have to separate those affairs, otherwise it can get very problematic. I know someone who doesn't speak to his own brother any more, because they had a company together that went bad.
As 3 tech advocacy groups show, Manpower, IBM, and Infosys are blocking qualified candidates.
"claim", not "show", Donna.
You're full of shit.
Standard shakedown: accuse a business of racial discrimination, make a bunch of noise in the press, which he will stop if the company in question pays him to fuck off.
I wouldn't call it bullying, There's no threat here at all, just snark.
Linus is quite the glass-house dweller, though. Hugh Daniel's comments over the years about the mistakes and misfeatures in Linux were enlightening and entertaining.
The appropriate response to Debbie Downer, or any other flavor of guilt-peddler, is to firmly and emphatically reject the guilt they're trying to peddle. E.G: "fuck you Debbie, who died appointed you the environmental guilt police?"
From the top, there is a great hatred of technical people there
You need to consult your doctor and get your meds adjusted. I've worked at Apple several times, and I sure didn't feel any "hatred of technical people" from anyone at any level of Apple's management chain.
They're like the goddamned Westboro Baptist Church, trying to leech publicity from anything that makes the news. They are not, and have never been an environmentalist organization. They're a marketing organization, that sucks up money by guilt peddling.
If you want to help the environment, then donate to a local group in your area, the Sierra Club, Ducks Unlimited, or any of dozens of others.
They bomb hospitals under UN protection
They bomb hospitals that UN personnel have allowed Hamas to use as weapons depots, and they call and warn people to get out of them first.
Taking Hamas propaganda at face value is a good way to make an ass of yourself.
The minimum wage affects those who are unable to earn some arbitrarily-set cutoff price. Growth of any jobs that pay that much or more is entirely beside the point.
Statists like to pretend that they're helping the poor with law that says "here you go, you get to earn at least this much!", but what these statues really do is say is "UNLESS you can earn this much, no job for you!"
Why should I abandon my home instead of resisting the protection racket in the neighborhood?
Human nature dictates that those with power will always try to exploit the weak.
Yes, and when they do so, we call that government.
It's people like you who enable that mayhem.
You have that exactly backwards. You're the one who supports government, and I'm the one who opposes it.
Logic apparently wasn't taught in the government schools you attended.
You say that like avoiding taxes is a bad thing.
Every dollar kept out of government hands is a dollar not spend on bloody mayhem.
