Comment More crap to turn off (Score 4, Funny) 62

Word rarely does what I want it to do so I've turned off most of the "help". Once we're forced to upgrade to this crap this will be more cruft to disable.

I can't wait to hear from our users when they whine about not being able to get their work done because Word is trying to be "helpful".

Richard Armitage was not the source of the leak, Dick Cheney was. We know this because Libby's own notes stated he, Libby, learned Plame was an undercover CIA agent from Dick Cheney.

The reason Libby was convicted was because he lied under oath, not because he was the one who outed Plame.

Further, no one, despite what Bush said, was ever held accountable for outing an undercover CIA agent. None.

How many other agents had their covers blown because of their association with Plame? How many may have died because of Cheney's political vindictiveness? Talk about a breach of national security.

University thing? You mean Trump University where he defrauded people to the tune of tens of millions of dollars? The University where employees were told to extract as much money as possible from people via high pressure sales tactics?

That's the University you're talking about, correct? The one run by the shyster.

Fraud.

Nope, it's not. Specifically, there is no intent to deprive a person of their legal right and the person was in no worse position than when they started. Simply saying, "Bernie is better" does not a true statement make. That is an opinion.

So nope, not fraud. If it was fraud then pretty much every political organization and member therein would be guilty of it at some point.

Submission + - SPAM: CEOs whining about having to pay employees more money

smooth wombat writes: For the longest time we have heard companies complain no one is qualified for their available jobs. Now it seems that mantra is coming back to bite them as they can't find people to fill their available jobs. As a result, they are having to raise wages to attract people to these jobs. This in turn has lead to their latest whinings: we have to pay people more!

Why are they complaining about having to pay more money to attract and retain people? Because investors and Wall Street firms see higher wages as a drag on profit and growth rather than a raising up of people's living standards.

There used to be multiple people applying for every job. Not any longer. Now, there's barely more than one job seeker for every job opening. Keeping good employees around is harder, and businesses from Silicon Valley tech hubs down to coffee shops are increasing pay to attract and retain workers.

As a side note, as Marissa Mayer prepares to depart Yahoo! after four years of marching in place, she stands to reap a $219 million golden parachute yet no one on Wall Street is complaining about that drag on profits.

These hospitals have only been deliberately attacked since the Russian air force arrived and since the U.S. is nowhere near where these attacks are taking place the only logical, unalterable conclusion is Russia is deliberately bombing hospitals.

Okay Russian trolls?

Because your father hasn't said something then the next day flip-flopped a complete 180.

Considering your father has praised the dictator Putin, a man who has no compunction about ordering his air force to deliberately bomb hospitals, schools and market places, a man who is bent on trying to restore the former Soviet Union, you would be wise to think very hard the next time you speak about who is saying what.

I don't think the Valley would manage without this program.

Then they're incompetent. There is absolutely no reason to think people here, already in the industry or working their way up out of school, can't do the job just as well.

From what I see every day about the people from Silicon Valley, if these are supposed to be smart people I can only wonder what their definition of stupid is. The utter crap of software and services they pump out is staggering. Even more so when one considers the amount of money people pour down the black hole of ineptitude while claiming they're producing something worthwhile.
