The snowflake culture run amok -

Alon Altman, a senior software engineer at Google, pressured the company to sabotage President Trump’s Android phone, according to new evidence released via James Damore’s class-action lawsuit against the company.
Calling on the tech giant to use the “full economic force [of] Google for good”, Altman also suggested deleting the gmail accounts of Trump, his administration, and his aides for “abuse.”

Could this be the beginning of a new dawn of work ethic for late teens?

Wall Street Journal reports:
“It gets very dire,” she said. “We’re willing to branch out.” For the first time, GE plant managers may consider high-school technical training toward the experience required for the jobs, she said. “Then we could bring some of them in as seniors.” [Emphasis added]
Julian Cornwall, 17, a Cincinnati high-school junior with machining skills, fielded 13 job offers. “They seemed really eager,” Julian said of the multiple companies that pursued him. “They’re all just after us.”

I doubt that even the craziest members of Team Blue at a national level would push reparations very hard, although they'd probably do it at a get-out-the-vote meeting in the right districts.

The idea is cool. Reparations + Medicare for all + free higher education. This last hopefully involves millions of slots for all those super-useful newfangled kinds of liberal arts departments. Our competitors worldwide cringe at the thought of a US where everyone has the opportunity for a Latina Studies degree.

This is where the Cal-50 plan takes hold. With sufficiently high state income taxes, 50% in this case, all of these things could be done in California. A single party state and a willing electorate could pull it off and we would be a step closer to utopia. With a bit higher taxes yet, you could even clean up the poop in San Francisco, although I expect the money would simply flow to where it usually does.

I'd love to hear from a Green Libertarian why California couldn't institute any progressive measure it likes, subject to a few federal laws. Most of the wishlist tends to involve simply taking from Peter to pay Paul, so I can't see the problem. So what's the problem here?

In short, why be mad at Trump and/or the Republicans? Simply institute a state version of these obviously great ideas.

It's probably worth mentioning that this 'Alon Altman' character, mentioned in the post up top, is not a female but is a mentally ill dude.

As a thought problem, imagine if ATT back in the days of it's monopoly (which the Bell offspring still rather have in some ways) withheld service based on it's employees' views of a customer's politics. This would include the President of the United States.

This is basically what we have going on here. The segment of the population that still has some grasp on it's sanity really needs to wake up and see that this is a real conflict, not just a thing played out on editorial pages and few blogs.

George Rebane

scenes 727am - Distressing indeed. But I'd like to see you develop your recommendation for "the segment of the population that still has some grasp on it's sanity". Given that the Left is irredeemable (also part of Rebane doctrine), what will it look like when that segment wakes up?

Bill Tozer

That’s a lot of legalese to digest, so let’s break it down. What the bill basically says is that anything that can be seen as trying to impact a person’s sexual orientation would be illegal to sell or offer.

This would almost certainly include traditional Christian counseling services and books.

Chick-fil-A's corporate mission to "glorify God" and "enrich the lives of everyone we touch" leaves The New Yorker scribe terminally heartsick about the "ulterior motive" of its restaurant execs. So do the founding family's commitments to faithful marriages, strong families, Sundays off and the highest standards of character for their employees. The frightened New Yorker critic is especially perturbed by the "Bible verses" enshrined at Chick-fil-A's Atlanta headquarters and by the restaurant's popular bovine mascots -- which he dubs "morbid" and the "ultimate evangelists" -- whose ubiquity on New York billboards and subway corridors is akin to a "carpet bombing."

Notice, by the way, how these hysterical Chick-fil-A-phobes have no qualms about the success of Jewish-owned delis or the spread of Muslim halal food shop operators in New York City who openly pay tribute to their faiths. Imagine a reporter freaking out over Quran verses or Torah citations hung up on a business owner's wall. Welcome to Social Justice 101, where discriminating against Christian-owned business in the name of opposing discrimination is the definition of tolerance.............

If leftists only want to eat and drink at a global fast-food company whose progressive CEO shares their Democrat-supporting, gun-grabbing, open-borders, gay marriage-boosting values, they should stick to Howard Schultz's Starbucks cafes.

re: GeorgeR@7:53AM

I was just thinking about that. I'm afraid that merely appealing to rational behavior does little good. I'd say that the strength of the Left right now is that they are tugging on the same rope, and that rope is a well-developed secular religion. The 'Right', and by that I mean traditional Western culture and not any particular set of economic beliefs, needs to do a better of job of codifying something that is actually worth fighting for.

But, and it's a pretty big one, the 'worth fighting for' needs to be couched in emotional terms. Mass movements aren't built on charts.

The tricky thing about saving the West is that the result could be as ugly as the future the progressives desire. Hitler aside, it's easy to envision a nationalistic, tradition-oriented movement that tends towards militarism. Top-down political systems, whether they are as multi-cultural as the Warsaw Pact countries or mono-cultural as Western Europe was for most of it's history, seem to be the normal state of humanity.

Tranny babies: Question: Is giving puberty blockers to pre-puberty adolescents child abuse?...

These professionals are using the myth that people are born transgender to justify engaging in massive, uncontrolled, and unconsented experimentation on children who have a psychological condition that would otherwise resolve after puberty in the vast majority of cases.

Today’s institutions that promote transition affirmation are pushing children to impersonate the opposite sex, sending many of them down the path of puberty blockers, sterilization, the removal of healthy body parts, and untold psychological damage.

These harms constitute nothing less than institutionalized child abuse. Sound ethics demand an immediate end to the use of pubertal suppression, cross-sex hormones, and sex reassignment surgeries in children and adolescents, as well as an end to promoting gender ideology via school curricula and legislative policies.

https://www.dailysignal.com/2017/07/03/im-pediatrician-transgender-ideology-infiltrated-field-produced-large-scale-child-abuse/

Experts on both sides of the pubertal suppression debate agree that within this context, 80 percent to 95 percent of children with [gender dysphoria] accepted their biological sex by late adolescence.”

But affirmation therapies interfere with this process. What data are there about children who are treated with puberty blockers so that natural puberty, with its likely positive effects on their gender dysphoria, is short-circuited? A study from the Netherlands of seventy such children found that all of them went on to embrace a transgender identity—unlike the vast majority of children not given such treatment. According to the American College of Pediatricians (ACP),

This is a cause for concern. . . . To have 100 percent of pre-pubertal children choose cross-sex hormones suggests that the protocol itself inevitably leads the individual to identify as transgender. There is an obvious self-fulfilling nature to encouraging a young child with GD to socially impersonate the opposite sex and then institute pubertal suppression.

http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2018/01/20844/

He took pains to direct his critiques not at transgender people themselves, but at the activists who promote the ideology.

People with gender dysphoria are suffering, Mr. Anderson said, and as many as 41 percent of those who identify as transgender will try to commit suicide at some point in their lives.

“It’s important that our response to them be one of compassion and respect for their struggle,” he said. “But we also need to beware of the harm that activists are doing by promoting their ideology.”

In his capacity as psychiatrist in chief at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, a position he held for 26 years, Dr. McHugh pioneered sex change surgery as a way to treat gender dysphoria. After studying the results, however, he concluded that the procedures brought no benefit to his patients and stopped offering the treatment in the 1970s.

Today, he recommends that patients with gender dysphoria seek psychosocial treatment, and he compares the malady to anorexia and other body-dysmorphic disorders.

re: GeorgeR@2:40PM

I wouldn't sweat it too much. You're dealing with people who have created a religion that is really a sort of anti-religion. The traditional West is bad, anything that opposes it is good. It's a rather hard thing to argue with since there are no central concepts, just a kind of philosophical black hole in the middle (I DIDN"T VOTE FOR OBAMA THE SECOND TIME!). There probably needs to be a term invented that describes nihilism to tradition.

Give us a break Willy. I'd expect a stupid, full-of-shit statement like that from Todd, but not you.

Black Friday sales isn't about Martin Luther King. To pretend otherwise is to pretend the sun rises in the north. Ever been to Victorian Christmas in Nevada City where there is a nativity scene in about every booth selling things from magic crystals, to knitted socks, to hot mulled wine?

I expected a moron like jon/linda to diss Christmas like all good secular idiots. Where did you get your info? At th zoo from a cghimp? You truly are a moron.

Bill Tozer

Oh jon, give me a break. Mother’s Day was a started by Hallmark Cards and K-Mart sells fake Christmas trees and nativity scenes and Halloween customs and sketelons to hang on the front door. The Jewish put up all blue lights on their homes. Putting up naivety Scenes at the sellers’ booths at street biazzares is hardly just more than lip service. Sure, some are saying they believe in the Christian faith, but...but...but..
You just can’t stomach Christians because you are quick to point out the Christians you have known don’t live up to anything close to Christ’s standards. Hypocrites, the whole lot of then. Remember the Crusades. What would Jesus do? No agrument here. It’s fingernails on the blackboard to you, not me.
Like Saul Alinsky wrote, hold them their morals and standards, something they can never live up to. Impossible. No brainer.
And my slamming Muslims really gets your goat, to the point you feel nothing for the Assyrian Christians’ plight. No problem here. It’s all a neat way to avoid dealing with the deeper issues. Keep looking at the mess and the messengers who carry the mess. They are everywhere and unfortunately, they screw up a perfectly good Victorian Christmas. Gawd, I have hated the holidays and crass commercialism more than you.

Kind of like slamming Beirbart News out of hand. Keeps ya from looking at the black on the page instead of the white. But, I could be wrong.

You are well aware by now, jon, that when life really touches you, as it will, all the neatly packaged arguments and philosophical convictions goes out the window. Just make sure that as you rage against Christians you are not really raging against something else.

scenes

"scenes 319pm - Had no idea I was displaying 'sweat' at all. Sorry it came across that way."

'Sweat' in this case doesn't apply nervousness, but simply caring that your point is made.

A proper Stoic attitude is that wrong-headed people are not to be disliked, but gently persuaded. Even then, the persuasion is of a limited duration.

George Rebane

Secular Christmas and Easter celebrations are sans Christ, and simply piggyback on a very old tradition of exchanging gifts during certain holidays and observances. Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are examples of how to keep Christ out of Xmas et al - and yes, 'Happy Holidays!' And selling a nativity scene or crucifix caters to a heightened demand that Christians have during those seasons. Should these then be produced (mostly by non-Christians here and abroad) at a loss and just given away?

Bill Tozer

In the best news in days (and on topic): the Army has decided to reduce its new recruit target for the year rather than lowering its standard.

No wonder the military is the most trusted branch of government. It would be a stretch that our public schools and colleges would follow suit and stop the decay of standards, but one can hope.

Thanks for the link to Jonah's essay. It very much ties in with the series of lectures I've been listening to on YouTube by Jordan Peterson. Being a clinical psychologist, he comes at the subject from the standpoint of how the human mind works as well as how humans have evolved to work cooperatively with each other and how civilizations arose.
He also highlights the rather sudden emergence of 'modern' civilization after eons of rather slow development. Because we as a society have decided to make science our new god, we have thrown off the old gods (stories, sagas, tales, mores, etc) wholesale and find ourselves in a pickle. We threw out the old before we had any idea of how to successfully replace it. He is open to the fact that it can be done, but points out that obviously we not even close. The biggy is the reality of death. We all face it, but now with our new god, we somehow think we can finally beat the devil in a new way. The old religions are thrown out and science will enable us to cheat death. But of course, we can't and our new religion has far less power than the old ways to deal with our mortality. Social chaos ensues. There is far more to it than that, of course. The main gist is something that many have pointed out for years. Technology is enabling a pace of change in society that far outstrips our here-to-for ability as a society to adapt. The answer by a lot of society has been to embrace the post modernism simply because it is 'new' and therefore must be the answer. Politicians and citizens alike firmly believe they can navigate our ship of state into the new dawn when they don't even know how to fire the boilers and maintain the engine.

Today is National Sex Ed Sit Out Day

Oh boy, a whole list of lubricants....for 6th graders.

https://www.redstate.com/kiradavis/2018/04/18/californias-new-sex-ed-curriculum-roll-out...what-need-know/
———
The names sound so good. Proud Choices, Welcoming Schools, Safe Schools....who could possibly be against that for 6th and 7th graders?

“Planned Parenthood is also behind another curriculum causing concern for parents—Get Real is a sex-education program for sixth and seventh graders. Parents in Cumberland County, North Carolina began to voice complaints about Get Real when it was introduced in their schools, pointing to graphic descriptions of sexual acts and advice for children such as using plastic wrap as a form of protection during oral sex.

According to a Family Research Council account, the Get Real program alarmed parents who objected to its promotion of homosexuality, its encouraging gender confusion among students, and its “jaw-dropping descriptions of various acts.” Interim superintendent Tim Kinlaw agreed, “It just simply was not appropriate for our sixth-grade students.” Parents prevailed, and the program was pulled from Cumberland County schools.

The implementation of these programs and others like them are the motivation behind the April 23 Sex Ed Sit Out. Organizers are providing parents with a letter that may be sent to school principals explaining their protest. “We send our children to school and pay for your services through our taxes so that our children can learn reading, writing, science and history, not how to question their gender or how to have anal and oral sex,”

It makes sense that if the post modernists believe all things are relative, all things are just a narrative, then it stands to reason that morals, science, and all human history is merely a narrative. An unmoored vessel is the narrative of a shipwreck.

Re: Suicide of the West

Heard a nice long interview with Jonah Goldberg today on the radio. Yep, gotta get the book. Points raised were valid.
As a sidebar and off topic, I always considered Mr. Goldberg the straight man in a comedy duo. Straight up, no nonsense, the opposite of say, a Milo. Wound tight. Well, he was quite reasoned and tempered in his interview, but sprinkled a whole lot of humor on the way. Saw another side of the man, a more complete picture.

Ones I remember were “people say at least Trump is better than Hillary. But that is like being the best gas station sushi in Alabama.”

“When talking with liberals about issues, they are like “Trump put salt on his French fries. Hilter put salt on his French fires!! My reply is if Trump was Hilter, he would have repealed the Affordable Health Care Act.”

“We can have the debate on whether good things have happened because of Trump, or good things have happened in spite of Trump.”

My paraphrase.

“Is the Bill of Rights not enough of a noble cause for the left? That our rights are endowed by our Creator is not a high enough standard? Once that noblest of causes fails, people turn to their human nature, which is tribalism.”

All in all, Trump has exceeded his wildest expectations, but the interview was about 90% about topics concerning The Suicide of the West. Trump was only brought up when questioned. Another who believes politics is downstream of cultture. Gotta get that book.

In addition to Sacramento Bee, McClatchy cutting newsroom jobs throughout West

In addition to 15 newsroom job cuts announced at its flagship Sacramento Bee newspaper Tuesday, The McClatchy Co.’s 10 newspapers in the West will see another 14 news positions eliminated.

The cuts are part of a reorganization that will see staff at McClatchy’s (AMEX: MNI) regional newspapers in the West work in teams to reach out to a larger audience in multiple media formats, said Gary Wortel, publisher of the Sacramento Bee and McClatchy's regional publisher for the West. The company's western group includes five newspapers in California, four in Washington state and one in Boise, Idaho.

When we moved here, I paid for an online subscription. I knew they were McClatchy but thought being in Idaho might make them a bit more MOTR. Hardly. Nothing more than a mouthpiece for the DNC. Being the capital city and having a university and a couple of colleges here as well as lib transplants working for Micron kept them alive for awhile. Can't see how they'll last much longer. I can get my local news online for free (radio and TV stations mostly).
Reading a newspaper is a generational thing. I worked swing shift for decades. When I came to work, my route to my desk took me past several trash cans known to contain the Union, the Bee and the Chron. Occasionally a WSJ would be available. Add to that the Sac Snooze and Review. For a while, I even subscribed to the Sunday edition of the Chron. Ah - the 'Sporting Green' and the 'Pinkie'. All pre-internet. Everyone I see these days has their nose shoved in their cell phone screen. I wonder how much longer I'll be able to get my hard copy mag subscriptions?

Concerning the Animal Shelter kerfuffle, one would be hard pressed to find any issue that brings out the crowds more than animals. Of all the protests and hanging out on the overpass (from Occupy Nevada City to Bush to Trump that I can recall), no issue get folks more riled up and taking it to the streets than animal advocacy.
Remember the Opposum Torture saga? Went on for days, then weeks with demonstrations everywhere from the bridge to the courthouse....they even crammed into th court house like sardines on each and every hearing, Yesterday, hundreds took to the streets in GV and packed the Arts Center in support of Sammie’s Friends. Huge local story and it will fill the local airwaves and local papers with pro Sammie Friends voices of support.

The recent League of Women Voters with HH88 and Dan Millet revealed that Hilary Hodge just does not get it. She is on the wrong side on this one. Send our furry friends (members of the family, actually) to Auburn. Blasphemy!! Who could vote for such a heartless cruel human. Put HH88 in cage and send her to Aurburn. Yeah, government knows best. What a friggin statist.

“Answering a question about the possibility Sammie's Friends would no longer operate the animal shelter, Hodge said the proposal, while unfortunate, is the correct move. She said Nevada County has been derelict in its duties, pointing to what she said was a local shelter that needs upgrades.” ——The Union

WTF? The right move??? Well, voters, that is where Hodge stands, straight from the jackass’s pie hole. What would Hilter do?

Dr. Rebane penned, “Nevada County stores display at checkout counters about three to four contribution boxes for critters for every one for humans.” It does not take a rocket scientist to notice that. HH is an advocate for closing Sammie’s Friends...prematurely. She had the political awareness of Hillary Clinton,
