Title: The Corporate Virtue Signaling Megathread: Cuz Feelz Over Realz
Post by: Dem Wypipo on February 24, 2018, 12:17:37 PM
Yet another megathread but this one is about a real problem that is emerging: corporate virtue signaling

The government is surprisingly strict when it comes to ruling on first amendment issues, even in liberal courts.  The heebs in power know that it still is a couple bridges too far to start significantly curbing the first amendment.  So how to get around this?  The solution the past few years has increasingly been to start pressuring massive multinational corporations who are beholden not to the people but shareholders who run to the fainting couch anytime there is a drop in the stock.  So this has resulted in a bunch of corporate leaders who are totally beholden to the left so they don't get smeared in a ((media)) hit-and-run piece, among other reasons.  It also doesn't help that corporate leadership is steeped in poz.  No, I don't want to hear from dumbasses who think that corporate leadership are secret shitlords who think that having their logo in a rainbow color is somehow 1488D chess to pretend to salvage that the Chamber of Commerce Republicanism is now anything other than the worst kind of cucks.

Anyway, I created this thread because it's pretty clear that the ((powers that be)) are trying to apply outside pressure to get the NRA to cuck on the weapons issue.  Yes, while corporations assault the first amendment, they're dipping their big toe into helping curb the second amendment.  So here's a small but unfortunately growing list of corporate cuck entities who are trying to apply pressure becuz feelz over realz:

Chubb has ended the insurance underwriting for the NRA's Carry Guard.

It's funny, these faggots want gun owners to carry insurance, they just don't want anyone to be willing to provide it.

I didn't see anything about Thrifty car rental mentioned in the {((media))} but since they are also owned by Hertz, any NRA discount with them will probably be ending as well.

How long until google puts out giant billboards and internet advertisements showing shitlord's personal information who have committed the act of wrong think?

Also the NRA discount was never able to overlap with the USAA discount, you could only pick one. We always chose the USAA one because I think the NRA was only like 10% where as the USAA one was closer to 25-35% usually.

AAA discount also didn't stack and that was around the same amount as the NRA one.

For the most part, people have moved on.  Which makes the decisions we're seeing all the more inexplicable.  These companies have just lost business of millions of people and even more millions/billions of dollars for absolutely no reason whatsoever other than to virtue signal on twitter to get asspats from people who are too scared to leave the house without having a panic attack.

They're real fucking goofy if they think any nra membership gives a shit about the discounts. The ones that do can use their golden buckeye card.

Like it's the same shoddy benefits you get from like AAA or your employer. Crappy discounts on what amounts to cars and hotels. No one cares.

The Elon Musk situation is odd. On Reddit he's obviously a superhero who can do no wrong, similar to the way they previously worshiped Neil deGrasse Tyson, but there's also a small, vocal minority who are fighting a constant kind of negative opinion insurgency about him on there - I think they'll hit a tipping point where they're sick of everybody publicly sucking the guy's dick over everything he does and he'll fall out of the internet's favor just like Tyson and Bill Nye.

Also, sort of relevant to the topic at hand:

Only problem is that virtually every rental car company that's worth a shit pulled their discount since they're all interconnected. Enterprise, National and Alamo are owned by one holding company, Avis and Budget are linked, ditto for Hertz, Thrifty and I think Dollar. Not much of a choice there

Like ATOP said though, the discounts were shitty compared to most. The little I rented with hertz, I used the Marriott rewards discount since it's a lot better. I will say that wherever I rent from now, their cars are gonna get the shit beat out of them while I have them.

These companies have just lost business of millions of people and even more millions/billions of dollars for absolutely no reason whatsoever other than to virtue signal on twitter to get asspats from people who are too scared to leave the house without having a panic attack.

Agreed. It's not like most of these twitter shitlibs need to rent cars just to go between their apartment, their job at Starbucks and their favorite Somalian restaurant.

They're real fucking goody if they think any nra membership gives a shit about the discounts. The ones that do can use their golden buckeye card.

I was being sarcastic with that comment since I think that wine club is stupid but yeah, most members are members to protect their gun rights, not for the little piddly-ass discounts they might get. The only one of these that might hurt is Chubb dropping their backing of Carry Guard insurance.

He didn't invent anything new as such, but he put all his personal money into projects that almost any other billionaire never would have. And he got shit done because he seems to hire the right people and inspire them the right way. He is essentially the Trump of technology. Everything he does tends to be under budget and on time.

My opinion on him has changed lately after I've learned what kind of a shitshow NASA has become. They are one of the most stagnant organizations on the planet. If there are no radical changes in NASA, they will never get a man to the Mars and I do mean NEVER. NASA has become a project for politicians to ensure massive jobs in their respective constituencies and ramping up climate change hysteria. Actual space exploration has been pushed to the bottom of the priorities list. If you want proof, just consider the fact that the greatest space exploration country in human history has no way to take their astronauts into space. If you want an extra dose of facepalm, go read about the SLS rocket program.

At this point Musk and SpaceX are our only hope if we want to see a man on Mars in our life time. I know he isn't perfect and I know for example that Tesla will never make a profit (probably). But he is kicking NASA's ass at the moment and that's good enough for me.

Musk is a world class conman who seems to have a knack for jumping on the next harebrained scheme before the previous one implodes.  Like most left wing darlings, he will eventually get dragged down and defeated by the dangerhairs for not being progressive enough.

Chad I like you and your posting, but don't you consider everything that SpaceX has achieved very impressive in a very short amount of time?

He's spending a lot more of other peoples' money than he is his own.  He wouldn't have sold a single car if not for the massive subsidies the government underwrites into his business.  Yes he's a shrewd businessman and may be making some technological developments here and there but he's certainly much more con man than inventor.

Also who gives a fuck about going to Mars?  The moon space race was primarily a way to stick it to the commies at the time, we had a much better economy then so spending a lot of money on what was essentially a vanity project was more palatable.  We've got lots more problems that are higher priority than how to colonize a dead planet, if it's even possible.

I am familiar with all the problems with Tesla, I mentioned it in my post as well. Ultimately I don't care about Tesla, but I do care about SpaceX.

However, getting off this planet and setting up colonies elsewhere is a matter of survival for the human race. What do you think trumps survival on the list of priorities?

Survival at home, being that the struggle of second/third world nations trying to graduate to the first world is a huge tax on resources, especially water and energy.  And most political organizations are rife with obsessed sociopaths trying to keep old power structures in place.  We certainly won't be colonizing Mars if half our population is 87 IQ and can't take care of themselves.

I don't think we even have a great plan for making long term habitable structures on Mars, much less then tens of trillions it would cost at minimum to set up.  That's forgetting about the idea that colonizing other planets may not be possible to begin with, owing to the fact that evolutionary pressures might be wildly different in a place with much less gravity and different amounts of sunlight and other radiation, it may end up being that we can't do it without turning into different beings.  We also have no idea the effects it would have on human growth from childhood since we don't send babies up into space for years.

Remember the Biodome experiment way back in the 90's?  As it turns out that was a huge failure because of, of all things, plants not being able to grow without some things we take for granted on earth, i.e. wind which ultimately guides the plant's stem to firmness. 

Mars colonies are a much more distant dream than are popularized by science fiction and con men (like Musk).

Agreed. Every other part of the world except for the Western hemisphere is dragging us down, literally.

United States has spent a few trillion dollars in less than two decades bombing brown people in deserts, just think of what a tenth of that money could do put human habitats on Mars...

... or better yet, space. Space is the safest place to be. Gravity can be simulated, radiation can be shielded against. Stuff like the coriolis force can be learned to live with.

There are huge challenges in colonizing space and other planets. There will be disasters. Entire colonies will be wiped out, either by disasters or human mistakes or sabotage.

And yet our long-term survival depends on it.

A tenth of the money would do nothing in the space race, it would take *tens* of trillions to set up even just a basic structure, maybe more.  I don't think you appreciate how much energy goes into getting a few thousand tons of metal up just out of our gravity.  The idea of taking enough to make some small facilities would be a herculean task, if we devoted half our economy just to it it would take a decade or more at least.

And you know this because it's been tried before?  Some things are so complicated you can't predict effects, there may be factors we have no idea about.  Like I said, the Biodome was nothing more than a thin sheet separating off an inside environment *on our own planet*, and it failed big time.  The idea that we can easily manufacture gravity and atmosphere on a totally different planet with no long standing effects is fucking retarded considering how many failures of many more modest endeavors have occurred.

This is a stupid question, we've already been on the earth tens of thousands of years and we can't predict a wipeout effect, so there's no way to say.  Anyone telling you they have the answer is definitely a con man since we can't predict basic things 30 years from now.

Over a very long period of time. It's not like you have to write a check for 10 trillion just to get the ball rolling. Read more about the various proposals that have been made for Mars colonization, most of them are very reasonable in terms of cost. As for getting into orbit, the price per kg into orbit has been steadily coming down just with better optimized rockets. I hope we will get more advanced methods in the future like beamed propulsion or mass drivers.

Everyone knows getting into space and beyod is expensive. But we must do it, if we want to survive.

So what is your suggestion? Do nothing because it's dangerous, expensive and complicated? With that kind of mentality you wouldn't have United States. If humankind doesn't expand into space it dies out sooner rather than later. It's not a question of if, but when.

On the contrary, we can predict it rather well. Most people think we have hundreds of millions of years, if not a billion years until the photosynthesis stops, the oceans evoporate and the Sun becomes too hot to handle.

250 000 - 450 000 years from know, a star called Hipparcos 85605 might pass as close as 0.13 ly from the Sun. The star's path will mean it will dislodge a fuckton of comets, asteroids and dwarf planets from the Oort cloud and send them towards us to the inner Solar system.

In 1.35 million years, Gliese 710 will pass us by very close (perhaps as close as 0.2 ly), by some calculations close enough to affect Kuiper belt objects and knock them off their orbits in our direction.

What we need by that time is for our eggs not to be all in the same basket (Earth), or alternatively we need a fleet of spacehsips with literal doomsday weapons to fight the oncoming wave of planetary bodies hell-bent on our destruction.

So what? When it comes to SpaceX he gets paid to deliver payload into orbit. He has gotten what, 5-10 billions in terms of orders from the government? Unlike NASA SpaceX has a functioning platform to do that and unlike NASA they are not burning money in the most insance way one could imagine:

Quote
Instead of costing just $54 million, the US Government Accountability Office found that NASA spent $281.8 million revamping the mobile launcher from fiscal years 2012 to 2015, but still the work was not done. The recently released White House budget for fiscal year 2019 reveals that NASA anticipates spending an additional $396.2 million on the mobile launcher from 2015 through the maiden launch of the SLS, probably in 2020.

Therefore, from the tower's inception in 2009, NASA will have spent $912 million on the mobile launcher it may use for just a single launch of the SLS rocket. Moreover, the agency will have required eight years to modify a launch tower it built in two years.

How's that for gibs?

Over a very long period of time. It's not like you have to write a check for 10 trillion just to get the ball rolling. Read more about the various proposals that have been made for Mars colonization, most of them are very reasonable in terms of cost. As for getting into orbit, the price per kg into orbit has been steadily coming down just with better optimized rockets. I hope we will get more advanced methods in the future like beamed propulsion or mass drivers.

Everyone knows getting into space and beyod is expensive. But we must do it, if we want to survive.

And you know this because it's been tried before?  Some things are so complicated you can't predict effects, there may be factors we have no idea about.  Like I said, the Biodome was nothing more than a thin sheet separating off an inside environment *on our own planet*, and it failed big time.  The idea that we can easily manufacture gravity and atmosphere on a totally different planet with no long standing effects is fucking retarded considering how many failures of many more modest endeavors have occurred.

So what is your suggestion? Do nothing because it's dangerous, expensive and complicated? With that kind of mentality you wouldn't have United States. If humankind doesn't expand into space it dies out sooner rather than later. It's not a question of if, but when.

Quote
This is a stupid question, we've already been on the earth tens of thousands of years and we can't predict a wipeout effect, so there's no way to say.  Anyone telling you they have the answer is definitely a con man since we can't predict basic things 30 years from now.

On the contrary, we can predict it rather well. Most people think we have hundreds of millions of years, if not a billion years until the photosynthesis stops, the oceans evoporate and the Sun becomes too hot to handle.

250 000 - 450 000 years from know, a star called Hipparcos 85605 might pass as close as 0.13 ly from the Sun. The star's path will mean it will dislodge a fuckton of comets, asteroids and dwarf planets from the Oort cloud and send them towards us to the inner Solar system.

In 1.35 million years, Gliese 710 will pass us by very close (perhaps as close as 0.2 ly), by some calculations close enough to affect Kuiper belt objects and knock them off their orbits in our direction.

What we need by that time is for our eggs not to be all in the same basket (Earth), or alternatively we need a fleet of spacehsips with literal doomsday weapons to fight the oncoming wave of planetary bodies hell-bent on our destruction.

It's not Elon's personal stash of money: he gets billions of dollars of government gibs for his schemes.  He's like a SuperNigger in that regard.

Here's a link talking about it: http://www.weeklystandard.com/elon-musk-wants-to-end-government-subsidies/article/2009014

So what? When it comes to SpaceX he gets paid to deliver payload into orbit. He has gotten what, 5-10 billions in terms of orders from the government? Unlike NASA SpaceX has a functioning platform to do that and unlike NASA they are not burning money in the most insance way one could imagine:

Quote
Instead of costing just $54 million, the US Government Accountability Office found that NASA spent $281.8 million revamping the mobile launcher from fiscal years 2012 to 2015, but still the work was not done. The recently released White House budget for fiscal year 2019 reveals that NASA anticipates spending an additional $396.2 million on the mobile launcher from 2015 through the maiden launch of the SLS, probably in 2020.

Therefore, from the tower's inception in 2009, NASA will have spent $912 million on the mobile launcher it may use for just a single launch of the SLS rocket. Moreover, the agency will have required eight years to modify a launch tower it built in two years.

How's that for gibs?

He didn't invent anything new as such, but he put all his personal money into projects that almost any other billionaire never would have. And he got shit done because he seems to hire the right people and inspire them the right way. He is essentially the Trump of technology. Everything he does tends to be under budget and on time.
This is definitely not the case for the Model 3, because apparently Tesla can't implement basic assembly-line processes.

Why all the butthurt over self landing rockets and well designed electric cars? NASA and the auto companies deserve to be bent over and fucked, I consider it justice for sitting on their collective asses for 30 years.

Concerns about government contracts going to Musk are pretty fucking far down on my list, considering that unlike almost every other dollar spent by the government Tesla and SpaceX are staffed by competent people who are hustling and are actually delivering good results. I mean sure keep writing 888's about it but to think that's the thing anyone should give a fuck about when Musk is basically single-handedly assuring American dominance in space and in transportation for the next 100 years go ahead.

There is no greater example of suicidal poz that I can think of than the adoption by the oil industry of "Climate Change" bullshit.  A huge part of this problem is driven by the fact that corporate leaders are so frequently out of touch with the average Joe that they have no concept of what is needed from a PR standpoint.  The media creates the perception that the public is up in arms over issue X, so the HR department and the diversity consultants tell the corporate leaders that they have to adopt the media's position on issue X.  And thus, you get oil companies sponsoring the polar bear exhibit at the zoo?  This is, of course, retarded, because by showing that you "care" about the polar bears, you are accepting the Leftist premise that your product is killing all of the polar bears. 

And you have cities trying to attract corporate business by highlighting their "diversity"...

http://tucson.com/news/national/cities-pitching-diversity-in-efforts-to-lure-businesses/article_caae9675-d320-598f-82b1-73ba915fe54a.html

Quote
Some cities and regions are highlighting racial diversity along with positive business climates, competitive tax rates and available land in pitches to lure tech companies and high-paying jobs to town.

Places such as Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Detroit are touting their populations of people of color to chief executives and other corporate officials as part of being open for business.

"For Pittsburgh and southwestern Pennsylvania, ethnic and racial diversity has been an integral part of our history and a rich part of our narrative," said Stefani Pashman, CEO of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development.

Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are among 20 cities still under consideration by online retail giant Amazon as locations for the company' second headquarters.

Pashman said to succeed as a player in a global economy, Pittsburgh "must be a place where there's a base of talent that looks and thinks like the world because the world is the customer in today's economy."

When Seattle-based Amazon sought proposals for its second headquarters, more than 240 cities and regions submitted bids and pitches about what they could offer the retailer. Many pitches came with sleek, professionally filmed videos of bright and busy downtowns, historic landmarks and recreational opportunities.

Some also featured snapshots of racial diversity in neighborhoods, shops and classrooms. That's something sought by younger workers who will come to dominate a more tech-driven global economy, according to ((marketing experts)).

Companies generally are looking to employ a lot of millennials and those hires are saying they "want to be able to work and live in a place where there are these interesting and diverse cultures," said Matthew Quint, director of Columbia Business School's Center on Global Brand Leadership.  ed:  this guy has a communications and a PoliSci degree 

But tech-based corporations are lacking in diversity, according to some data.

High-tech employment of African-Americans in the U.S. was 7.4 percent compared with 14.4 percent employment of blacks in the public sector overall, according to 2014 data collected by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Hispanic high-tech employment was 8 percent compared to 13.9 percent in the public sector overall.

The data also showed that less than 1 percent of executives at some leading Silicon Valley tech firms were black and fewer than 2 percent were Hispanic.

"All tech companies are under this lens, presently, for their lack of diversity," Quint said. "CEOs are talking about 'we know we need to change.'"

Meanwhile, he said, cities recognize the racial diversity they offer is attractive and they're telling companies, "You are going to have this diverse population to choose from as you're looking to change your brand."

Pittsburgh is in Allegheny County. About 202,000 of Pittsburgh's 305,000 residents are white, and about 74,000 are black, according to census data. An additional 16,000 are Asian.

In its pursuit of Amazon's $5 billion second headquarters project, which could result in possibly 50,000 jobs, Pittsburgh's video entry is titled "Future. Forged. For all."

In Philadelphia's pitch to Amazon, a half-dozen or so non-white professionals tell why it would be the best place for the company's new headquarters.

Dallas-Fort Worth also is among the more than 240 cities and regions to make a run at Amazon and also made the cut down to 20. A video that's part of Dallas-Fort Worth's proposal shows a boy of eastern Indian heritage holding a sign that reads: "Diversity."

Detroit's pitch included a 240-page "Move Here. Move the World" book that featured blacks and other minorities who own businesses and also highlighted Hispanic heritage events. But the Motor City, which is 80 percent black and anchors a metropolitan area that also has sizable Arab-American and Hispanic populations, didn't make Amazon's cut.

Officials in Detroit say the city's promotion of its diversity didn't start with its run at Amazon and won't stop now that the company has its eyes elsewhere.

"We are going to use that material as much as we can with all of our other business opportunities," said Jed Howbert, the city's group executive for Planning, Housing and Development. "We think the diversity of Detroit and the whole metro area is one of the most important assets we have in attracting companies."  :tyrone:

Tina Wells, founder and CEO of Haddonfield, New Jersey-based Buzz Marketing Group, said she's not aware of other instances in which cities pushed their diversity to companies like some have to Amazon. But, she said, it's "less about marketing a city's blackness and more about showing a city is diverse and open to everyone."

"When you think about vibrant cities you want to make sure you tell people, 'You're welcome here,'" Wells said. "I just think we're a little slow in reflecting what these cities look like."

My company has a large facility in Detroit.  We can't find qualified people there to save our lives.  It's an absolutely Godawful place to run a business.  The taxes are terrible and the workforce is utterly worthless.  The "diversity" there is nothing but trouble.  Any CEO who relocates a facility or builds a new one with "diversity" as a qualification should be fired by the board of directors on the spot.  We will probably have to endure at least a few more years of this bullshit until boomers have aged into retirement or death and Generation Z has entered the workforce in large amounts.

Companies are also deathly afraid of lawsuits.  There are two landmark lawsuits, in particular, that completely changed the corporate landscape..  The first was the Texaco class action racial discrimination lawsuit.  From now on, if any corporate executive gets caught on tape saying the word "nigger", then every brown person in the company just hit the lottery.  The other landmark lawsuit was the tobacco class action lawsuit.  Big oil, in particular, is deathly terrified of being the next tobacco.  That is why they are complete and utter pussies when it comes to global warming denial.  And this just goes to show you how just about every meaningful gain that the Left has made over the past 20-30 years has been via the courts.

Who the fuck says that besides idiots?  And you're basing all this stuff off "hope we will get more advanced methods in the future".  Sounds exactly like retards who think we should all be using solar for energy despite the fact it will be decades minimum before that's even moderately feasible.  Because "eventually oil will run out!"  You know, that's a hell of a lot more of a pressing need than something we will need in thousands of years.

SpaceX hate is pretty dumb tbh, especially coming from those on the right

I'm torn on Musk - I hate him for Tesla and the nerd worship he gets for that, but I love him for the SpaceX stuff.

His reddit brigade is goddamn annoying, but there's not any other valid criticism about SpaceX imo.

The general criticism, especially from the right, consists of complaining about the amount of r&d funding we have given SpaceX -- somewhere around $400 million total from NASA and $100m from USAF.  This is probably the best investment our govt. has made in recent history.  Its really kind of comical if you think about it.

Falcons 1 & 9 cost somewhere around $400m in r&d, NASA said a comparable rocket designed on its own would have cost $4b in r&d and would have naturally been more expensive per launch (non-reusable).

Falcon Heavy funding came from mostly, if not entirely, non-govt. sources and cost about $500 million.  The rocket costs $95m per launch and it actually works. 

Meanwhile, NASA has spent $12 billion on the Space Launch System's rocket, $24 billion on the overall program so far, and we're still not likely to see a manned mission from it until 2023.  Not to mention the SLS is going to cost at least $2 billion per year once operational for a single annual flight.  This is fucking infuriating.

ULA's Delta IV costs $350m per launch and has 1/3rd the capacity of a Falcon Heavy.  ULA's "response" to Falcon Heavy is the Vulcan, which our govt. has already sunk as much in as it did on SpaceX in total -- Vulcan will have 1/4th the capacity of Falcon Heavy, cost more per launch ($100m+), and already has had 4x Falcon Heavy's r&d spent on it.  And Vulcan isn't expected to make its initial flight until the mid-2020s now  :allears:

We've spent, relatively, almost nothing on SpaceX and in turn we've got a private company the Chinese, European, and our domestic space industry are shitting themselves over.  But dudes are still going to complain about the guy singlehandedly putting us back into space and reaching Mars because they received a small amount of r&d money from the govt (less funding than literally every other relevant competitor).


But who cares about literally wasting tens of billions on slow, inefficient, and less advanced rockets (ULA, NASA SLS) that solely exist because they send money and jobs to certain congressional districts, did you hear we spent $500m on SpaceX?

edit: I mistakenly said NASA spent $400m on Falcon 1 and 9 r&d -- NASA actually $400m for Falcon 1 and 9 and Dragon

For reference, Orion has cost us $12.5 billion since 2005 and will total around $20.4 by when it actually enters service in 2023.  Orion will also cost $1 billion per launch.  SpaceX has spent a couple hundred million on Dragon and it will cost $300 million per launch.

You know who else at that time they couldn't stop hyping was Marissa Mayer.  Yet another strong womyn CEO who drove a company right into the ground.

That's all he's really good at, that and shuffling around money and getting bailouts from the taxpayer.
Hyperloop for one is a nice headline, but physically impossible to do in a safe and efficient manner.
The idea of underground roads for his boring company? bullshit. Flamethrowers? Headline shit.
Each new company generates a shit load of cash thanks to headlines, and he funnels it into something else.

He's operating a Ponzi scheme at best.

There's no 'might' about it. You may as well start making plans for the heat death of the universe while you're at it.

The events I was talking about are about to take place in a couple of hundred thousand years. The first red dwarf stars will be running out of hydrogen to burn in 800 billion years. You have no idea what you are talking about. Stop talking.

Met plenty of Estonian girls over here, and they have all left to make a better life for themselves. Not one of them has a good thing to say about that little gnat of a country other than 'it's got nice nature'. They are quite critical of Estonian men, labeling them as manchildren, alcoholics, stupid, or just plan cucks. I presume you're all four.

If all those prime virgin Estonian girls are presenting themselves to you, how come you are still going for the cheap whores?

Who the fuck says that besides idiots?  And you're basing all this stuff off "hope we will get more advanced methods in the future".  Sounds exactly like retards who think we should all be using solar for energy despite the fact it will be decades minimum before that's even moderately feasible.  Because "eventually oil will run out!"  You know, that's a hell of a lot more of a pressing need than something we will need in thousands of years.

I know that some people are incapable of long term planning. Solar energy is great, but only around the orbit of Mercury where you get 7x the energy per sqm. You can use it for beamed propulsion, googleblitz BHs etc. On Earth it will always be a marginal source of energy.

I have to hope you're trolling at this point.  If you're going to think 6 digits of years into the future, the magnetic poles swapping and massive volcanoes destroying agriculture worldwide with pollution are much much more common events, and any of them are still measured in the tens of thousands of years, and neither of them will end all life.  If you honestly buy into any of the colonizing Mars stuff, you need to lay off the Kool-aid.

I would rather see that we'd build space habitats and huge solar arrays near the orbit of Mercury, but I will take what I can get.

Haha, holy shit, wow.

Falcon 9 has successfully made 47 of 49 attempted launches, which is the second highest success rate of any American rocket currently in use. 

The only rocket with a higher success rate -- the Delta II -- carries at most between 1/10th and 1/4th than Falcon 9 can, costs 1/3rd more than Falcon 9, and is being discontinued this year.

Sure.  SpaceX publicly lists its launch costs and payload capacities:

ULA publishes payload capacities + Atlas V launch costs, but not Delta IV launch costs:

Here's ULA's CEO tweeting the Delta IV Heavy costs $350 million per launch:

We could launch nearly 3 Falcon 9s for the cost of a single Atlas IV or almost 4 Falcon Heavies for the cost of a single Delta IV.  3 Falcon 9s carry 820% more than a single Atlas IV, 4 Falcon Heavies carry 900% more than a single Delta IV. 

And compare to NASA SLS:

Quote
And while NASA has not released per-flight estimates of the expendable SLS rocket's cost, conservative estimates peg it at $1.5 to $2.5 billion per launch. The cost is so high that it effectively precludes more than one to two SLS launches per year.

https://arstechnica.com/science/2017/12/nasa-is-trying-to-make-the-space-launch-system-rocket-more-affordable/

Quote
NASA annually spends about $2.6 billion to develop the SLS rocket and ground launch systems for the massive rocket at Kennedy Space Center. The SLS rocket was originally supposed to launch in 2017, but now the maiden flight of the SLS booster has slipped to 2020. That is understandable; most large aerospace rockets experience delays. However, the cost of a three-year delay is $7.8 billion.

For the sake of argument, consider the costs of this three-year delay against the lift capability NASA could have bought by purchasing Falcon Heavy rockets from SpaceX in 2018, 2019, and 2020. That $7.8 billion equates to 86 launches of the reusable Falcon Heavy or 52 of the expendable version. This provides up to 3,000 tons of liftthe equivalent of eight International Space Stations or one heck of a Moon base. Obviously NASA does not need that many launches, but it could buy several Falcon Heavy rockets a year and have the funds to build meaningful payloads to launch on them.

https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/02/three-years-of-sls-development-could-buy-86-falcon-heavy-launches/


For reference, the initial SLS rockets will be able to carry, if I'm remembering right, an extra 6-7 metric tons over the Falcon Heavy. 

In other words, Congress has spent $12b on a rocket ($24b program total thus far, $43b estimated final cost) that won't fly for another 21 months and that will have a launch cost 3-4x what SpaceX spent ($500m) developing a nearly equivalent rocket that is available right now for $95m.

lol at selectively ignoring that SpaceX has created re-usable rockets, probably the most important invention since rockets themselves when it comes to commercializing space.

also Tesla is a pretty interesting "scam company", I guess all those cars driving around is part of the long con.

your hate of reddit and government tax money is preventing you from recognizing a rare but true example of genuine American ingenuity and sweat resulting in a massive leap forward for society. SpaceX and Tesla are a lot more than just one person, and they are something Americans should be proud of. also hating Tesla as a way to plant your flag as a global warming skeptic is stupid because if you've ever driven one of their cars you'd know they are ridiculously better designed than any other car in their class and nowadays regularly out perform more and more dick-waving supercars that cost 10x as much. the fact they don't burn fuel is incidental, they are just plain better and more forward-looking vehicles than anything Detroit has been able to shit out over the last 40 years.

On the contrary, we can predict it rather well. Most people think we have hundreds of millions of years, if not a billion years until the photosynthesis stops, the oceans evoporate and the Sun becomes too hot to handle.

250 000 - 450 000 years from know, a star called Hipparcos 85605 might pass as close as 0.13 ly from the Sun. The star's path will mean it will dislodge a fuckton of comets, asteroids and dwarf planets from the Oort cloud and send them towards us to the inner Solar system.

In 1.35 million years, Gliese 710 will pass us by very close (perhaps as close as 0.2 ly), by some calculations close enough to affect Kuiper belt objects and knock them off their orbits in our direction.

that_one_gay_xkcd_comic.jpg

It's hilarious how shitlibs raging against evil corporations seem to have no problem with them becoming all-powerful nationless entities.

Libertarians are actually worse in this regard.  Libertarians rage against the government becoming an all powerful totalitarian dystopia but they apparently don't care at all if corporations effectively accomplish the exact same thing because "private companies should be able to do what they want."  That is, they immensely dislike the Brave New World and 1984 style dystopias but would be perfectly willing to live under Rollerball, Blade Runner, Robocop, Altered Carbon, etc. where corporations hold absolute power over the population.  It's mind-boggling to me that you could be against one of these things but not the other.
Companies are also deathly afraid of lawsuits.  There are two landmark lawsuits, in particular, that completely changed the corporate landscape..  The first was the Texaco class action racial discrimination lawsuit.  From now on, if any corporate executive gets caught on tape saying the word "nigger", then every brown person in the company just hit the lottery.  The other landmark lawsuit was the tobacco class action lawsuit.  Big oil, in particular, is deathly terrified of being the next tobacco.  That is why they are complete and utter pussies when it comes to global warming denial.  And this just goes to show you how just about every meaningful gain that the Left has made over the past 20-30 years has been via the courts. 

I can tell you right now that the oil industry is not as pozzed as you think.  I may dox myself a bit with this, but I work in the industry and I'm specifically an air quality guy.  I work directly with the many trade organizations (like the API, IPAA, AXPC, WEA, etc.) to comment on rules and regulations that come out which affect the industry.  All of the industry trade organizations, of which the majors and large independents are involved with and fund, are actively fighting all of these pieces of legislation.  I have personally written many aspects of our responses to the EPA. 

Thanks to Trump, there is actually hope within the industry and a renew interest in getting these regulations reviewed and changed to be more industry friendly versus just slowly grinding us under their heel.  Trump put Scott Pruitt in charge of the EPA and he's been a godsend in this regard.  They are actively striking and/or reconsidering many regulations that are currently out there such as 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart OOOOa, 40 CFR 98 Subpart W, Control Technology Guidelines (CTGs), the new NAAQS Standard, etc.

Yes some of the majors are somewhat pozzed at the top, but they are being forced to change as a result of the direction of the industry.  The majors are struggling to compete in the world of fast horizontal drilling and fracing because they are too bloated too maintain the type of schedule that would be required to make a good profit.  This is why companies like ConocoPhillips are looking to downsize significantly and become just standard large independents.  ExxonMobile tried this with XTO and for the most part it appears to be working decently. 

As for the general feeling within the industry.  Climate Change is still considered to be mostly a running joke.  Whether or not it is occurring is immaterial.  The world runs on and desperately needs oil and gas so until that changes, it doesn't really matter what anyone thinks.

The industry didn't really fight Renewable Fuels (which was signed into law by Oilman George W.   :dubya:) and wasn't even united in fighting Obama's cap-and-trade proposal (narrowly avoided disaster).  Some of the majors were even initially in favor of it, although they backed off after it really sunk in what a disaster it was.  Nor did the industry lobby hard against CAFE standards, and they aren't trying very hard to get rid of them.  You may not believe on global warming, but CAFE standards are in place specifically because of it, and they will gradually squeeze the domestic oil industry into oblivion.  You are already seeing the effects, specifically with East Coast refiners going bankrupt and/or shutting down.

Trump isn't the Godsend that everyone was hoping for.  He is friendly to domestic oil production, but Pruitt so far has done nothing to curb biofuels mandates or roll back CAFE standards.  There is nothing, I repeat nothing, has ever threatened the domestic oil production and refining business as much as CAFE.  It is a death knell designed to eliminate domestic fossil fuels consumption because of "muh global warming".  I have yet to meet anyone in my company's governmental affairs group who truly understands the war that we are in against the Left.

There is a really good filmmaker out there who makes pro oil company documentaries and who has made some great documentaries debunking enviromentalist bullshit.  But the oil companies refuse to fund him because they are gigantic pozzed pussies.  They all spend more money on retarded "green" initiatives than they do on PR that will actually rescue their business.  The guy begs for money on crowdfunding sites.  Here is one of this docs (I have seen it). 

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fracturedthemovie-energy-environment#/

$16,000 to make documentaries when the Al Gore side of the argument is getting millions and millions of funding (the opposite of public perception).

In my lifetime, there is not once single example that I can think of where the oil business has won a regulatory victory that has actually reversed a previous rule.  All of our industry's victories have involved blocking new rules or making them less severe.  This is especially true in my segment of the business, where expansion is next to impossible now despite strong economic drivers.

The industry is doing exactly that with Quad Oa and the BLM Venting and Flaring rule.  That is, these rules may be completely stricken from the books and eliminated entirely.  In Upstream, we are actually seeing a rollback or removal of previously finalized rules.  The Trump admin has already proposed that the Social Cost of Carbon, Social Cost of Methane, and Social Cost of N2O be removed as bases for any future regulatory updates or rules and that any rule that used them as a basis should be retroactively reviewed and/or eliminated.  Having seen what is in these documents, I can say with certainty that they are complete bullshit speculation that are not based upon any actual science.  It's almost criminal that they were used by the EPA.

I assume from your response that you're downstream, is that correct?  I'm upstream and it's a different world here.  It's way less cucked than downstream in large part because most of the regulations are new and most of the regulations are written by people who have absolutely no idea how upstream functions or what it takes to drill a well and produce crude and natural gas. 

Why does the industry not fund guys like this?  Probably because no one knows about him.  In all of my meetings with the industry trade organizations, this guy has not once come up in conversation and we've directly discussed the pro-global warming videos and how we know that many of the videos with truth in them are being ignored.  It's not that we are ignoring him, it's that he's just not well known.

I've also been trying to spread knowledge about how we're in a huge battle with the left.  The industry's decision to support the Clean Power Plan was extremely short sided because it should have been obvious to anyone with a brain that as soon as the left finished with the coal industry that they were going to come after the oil and gas industry.  It was a classic case of valuing short term profit over long term survival.  It was incredibly stupid on the industry's part and thankfully I think many have realized it was dumb.  Additionally, I think the industry itself has begun to wake up to what is going on.  That we can't just sit back anymore and that we must be proactive in filing lawsuits and fighting these rules in the Courts.  We cannot afford to just let it happen now because if we don't fight back the left will kill the industry piece by piece.

SWOLE -  XTO is finally being absorbed into ExxonMobil and will cease to exist as a separate entity entirely very shortly. A lot of buildings in Downtown Fort Worth are going to be popping up for commercial real estate lease/sale. From an IT perspective they are being collapsed into EMIT in Houston Woodlands tech center with quite a few position eliminations. I have a couple of consulting resources that have been on project since last July.

I agree with you - the left knows in their evil hearts there is a point where their green faggotry will turn the lights off, and their gay enabling Apple devices won't be charging or Internets wont be working. That being said, they didn't know when to stop pushing and they were running out of rope fast. I believe they are afraid to back off CAFE for 2 reasons:

1. Years of increasing regulation has pushed the industry to invest significantly into adherence and adaption to the standard, so a sudden change or relaxation would be perceived and felt as a huge loss,

2. Exxon has done very well with their biofuel initiatives, and have adapted to a point were profitability would be realized down the road. Exxon has also done well with marketing and branding climate change support, which is actually more window dressing than actual process changes.

As far as the pozzing of Exxon goes, I've done work with them back in 2009 and the company culture and office environment has changed radically. They went from closed offices or cubes to this incredibly retarded open concept working space (called We3) where employees have no assigned seating. This presents huge problems especially for personnel working with sensitive or secure data. Employees have to waste almost 20 minutes getting set up every day, and the noise levels are distracting. It was a terrible idea, and a lot of tenured employees have gotten frustrated to the point of leaving. They have gotten really lax on dress standards too, and HR seems to be running things more than management.

Stupid nigger can't distinguish between a flippant comment to highlight how stupid he is, and a serious statement. But still, keep doubling down on your planning for events hundreds of thousands and millions of years in the future when humans as we know them won't exist  :stewart:

I assume humans will be around in hundreds of thousands of years in the future, you assume they willl not be. Neither of us has the capacity to predict the future with any degree of certainty. This argument is pointless.
I know reading comprehension isn't your strongest point, but I said 'humans in their current form'. It doesn't distract from the point that your star trek fanwank idea is retarded.

In oil chat...
I used to do EIA's for the O&G industry a while back. All I know is that they go through the motions of giving a shit (hiring me for example), but in short I was just providing a nice bit of PR for them to wave infront of whoever to show they are 'considering the environment'. Money was good though so can't grumble.
Also, living ontop of an oilfield in Qatar was eye opening...all that shit about turning off your car in traffic? Fuck that when you have gigantic flares roaring away 24/7. There was one ground level flare which we called the 'fire pit', which you could hear roaring away from a kilometer away...

I'm not surprised about XTO being absorbed back into ExxonMobile proper.  I'd heard that they kept on filling positions with more and more ExxonMobile people who were bringing in their culture over to XTO.  For whatever reason, ExxonMobile just can't help themselves here.  I'm also not at all surprised to hear they are getting more pozzed.  It's a problem all of the majors have now.  Corporate bureaucracy inevitably turns all multi-national corpoations into SJW factories that are run by a militant HR wing.  It's sad as hell to see it happen.

This past downturn has been a godsend for many companies because it has allowed them to "trim the fat" or cut worthless non-profitable overhead in a way that doesn't get them in trouble.  Companies have been forced to lean themselves out and get rid of a bunch of people who were not needed because it was the only way to remain profitable.  The majors have had a tougher go of this that the mid to large independents because that bureaucracy has a lot of inertia behind it.  However, this is what is causing ConocoPhillips to want to cut everything down to being an independent instead of a major because majors just cannot operate fast enough to make a good profit due to exorbitant Management of Change processes where something must pass through every single department before it is approved.

There is definitely a dearth of good media that goes against the Climate Change myth. The other problem is that the science surrounding this shit is really heady, and because of that it's harder to change a person's mind on this unless they're already open to it, since most people had their view on it browbeaten into them while not understanding the climate mechanisms that were supposed to cause all this warming. I won't lie, most of the arguments I use wrt this stuff is just stolen from a Molyneux vid that quoted a Mises Institute article. I know that the original AGW theory said that the increased levels of carbon would kick off massive water vapor feedbacks which would raise the Earth's temperature, and that the theory is completely contingent on this water vapor effect being started by us pumping carbon into the atmosphere. Beyond that I'm pretty clueless, but what makes me confident is the fact I've never had someone rebuke me when I argue this, and I've tried it all over the place. If it was a dumb thing to say there'd be some snarky article somewhere "fact-checking" it.

The ultimate issue I have with climate change is that the solutions never seem to address the supposed issues.  Shitlibs were big on cap and trade last decade because investment banks were going to broker the exchanges, which means more shekels for Shlomo.  Then we saw the Paris Agreement which amounted to the first world subsidizing cheap third world labor and manufacturing and would allow India and China to pollute as they see fit while the first world had to deal with onerous regulations.  Meanwhile they want us to invade Russia yesterday so ((firms)) can get access to the vast reserves of natural gas and oil that Russia has.  Democrats were willing to go fight in Syria so Saudi Arabia could get a pipeline to Europe, providing an alternative from Russian fossil fuels.  So in practice, Democrats don't really give a shit about climate change, they just want the shekels diverted to their ((friends)) who are unabashed globalists instead of the remaining goyim who still run and lead certain industries, like oil and gas.

All of it is true. Where did I contradict this? I said exactly the same thing. Sometimes CO2 rise precedes temperature rise, sometimes it does not. I focused specifically on CO2 because that's what the climate change hysterics are claiming is solely responsible for all evils of the world.

SO back to the topic, Dick's limps out (http://pressroom.dicks.com/press-information/media-statements.aspx).

Quote
Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been.

Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens.

We believe its time to do something about it.

Beginning today, DICKS Sporting Goods is committed to the following:

    We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles. We had already removed them from all DICKS stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field & Stream stores.
    We will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age.
    We will no longer sell high capacity magazines.
    We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly.

At the same time, we implore our elected officials to enact common sense gun reform and pass the following regulations:

    Ban assault-style firearms
    Raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21
    Ban high capacity magazines and bump stocks
    Require universal background checks that include relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law
    Ensure a complete universal database of those banned from buying firearms
    Close the private sale and gun show loophole that waives the necessity of background checks

Of course, the "high-capacity" mag ban is a red-herring, since the murderer used 10-round mags because they could be hidden in his backpack (http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/community/broward/article202486304.html). But hey, never let facts and logic get in the way.

Guarantee that "assault rifles" being a nonsensical thing will be literally the exact reasoning given for why we should *expand* the law to include all semi-automatic weapons in a few years if they are banned now. "If banning assault weapons was a good idea, then surely banning weapons that have the same capabilities is also a good idea!" - Democrats in 3-4 years.

It's a pretty clever trick -- creating a ban on "assault weapons" is more palatable than total ban today since "technically" it doesn't restrict access to a certain level of firearm, then when the overton window has shifted the very same bullshit characterization can be used to bolster the case for expansion to take those too.

FYI Hitler named what is commonly regarded as the first assault rifle the "Sturmgewehr" which is very loosely translated as assault rifle. Literally storm rifle.

TALLAHASSEE Gun-rights Republicans in the Florida House are starting to punish Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Delta Airlines after the corporations severed ties with the National Rifle Association.

Over the past 24 hours, Florida lawmakers, borrowing from counterparts in Georgia, have targeted an aviation fuel tax reduction benefiting Delta and proposed late night budget language to rebid a state rental car contract held by Enterprise. The Enterprise contract is not set to expire until September 2020.

It'd be business as normal, which is probably what Delta's execs thought when they made the decision. Hmm, school shooting bad, NRA mean and wrong side of history, us virtue signal and get unga big stock boost. It's not like anything would be permitted under HNIC.

And hahahaha, I hear it from my left-leaning friends already, how fucking rude it is of lawmakers to swing back.

20-year-old sues Dicks, Walmart over new gun policies

Quote
PORTLAND, Ore. An Oregon man filed suits Monday claiming Dick's Sporting Goods and Walmart discriminated against the 20-year-old when they refused to sell him a rifle.

Dick's and Walmart restricted gun sales to adults 21 and older in the wake of the Florida high school massacre. The 19-year-old accused in the school slaying bought the AR-15 used in the attack legally.

Oregon law allows residents to buy shotguns or rifles starting at age 18.

Tyler Watson's lawsuits filed against the retailers in two separate counties claim he faced age discrimination from Dick's and Walmart, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported. The lawsuit is believed to be the first filed over the new gun policies enacted on Feb. 28.

The lawsuit claims a store owned by Dick's Sporting Goods in Medford, Oregon, refused to sell Watson .22-caliber Ruger rifle on Feb. 24. The suit says Grants Pass Walmart in Oregon refused to sell him a gun on March 3.

It's not clear if Watson knew at that point of the restrictions.

"He was really just trying to buy a rifle," said his attorney Max Whittington.

Watson is asking judges to force Dick's and Walmart "to stop unlawfully discriminating against 18, 19, and 20 year-old customers at all Oregon locations." Additionally, he is asking for unspecified punitive damages

Walmart spokesman Randy Hargrove said the retailer plans to defend the new policy.

"We stand behind our decision and plan to defend it," he said. "While we haven't seen the complaint, we will respond as appropriate with the court."

A representative from Dick's hasn't responded to a request for comment.

i dont see the lawsuit winning because the argument will be just MUH REASONABLE RESTRICTIONS and that will be the end of it.

Although it'll be funny to see them say how it's somehow ok to allow a gun retailer to not sell a gun because of age but not ok to say no to faggot wedding cakes.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) Its not a bizarre prank, and its not a mistake, some McDonalds locations are reportedly flipping their golden arches upside down to make an unprecedented statement.

Business Insider reports that McDonalds is turning their arches upside-down in celebration of women everywhere to celebrate International Womens Day.

Photos from Lynwood, California already show one McDonalds restaurant with their M turned into a W.

On Thursday, Business Insider says McDonalds will turn its logo upside down on all digital channels such as Twitter and Instagram as well.

In a statement to Business Insider, McDonalds Chief Diversity Officer Wendy Lewis :goonette: says: In celebration of women everywhere, and for the first time in our brand history, we flipped our iconic arches for International Womens Day in honor of the extraordinary accomplishments of women everywhere and especially in our restaurants.

The restaurant chain also says they will have special packaging, crew shirts, and hats at 100 of their restaurants nationwide.

No word if any of the Pittsburgh area restaurants plan to turn their logo upside down on Thursday.

The Diversity Department is how the insincere virtue signalling that corporations do to immunize themselves from lawsuits becomes permanently translated into cultural retardation.

This could have gone in the feminism thread -- to feminists: Sexual Atttraction = Sexual Harrassment.

GENEVA (AP) At the Geneva motor show, some automakers want visitors to focus their minds more on the models the cars, that is, not the women.

In the wake of the #MeToo movements explosion and growing awareness about sexual harassment, some auto executives have been taking a new look at the traditional use of often scantily-clad women on display stands at auto shows.

Some companies say a cultural shift is in the air. Though a walk through this years Geneva auto show suggests the industry still actively associates its products with female sensuality and uses models to leverage that.

I dont think we will be able to change the situation from one day to the next, said Susie Wolff, former development driver for the Williams racing team in Formula One, which has recently decided to stop using models at the start of competitions.   :goonette:

Wolff doesnt like the idea of women standing by merely to be objectified. But I think we are making change in a positive way, said Wolff
, who was at the show to promote an initiative to get more women involved in motorsports.

Leggy and heavily made-up models still adorn the stands at the Geneva show, though there seems to be a bit less skin on show than previous years.

We never looked into optics, or whatever, when it comes to our presenters, said Rolls-Royce CEO Torsten Mueller-Oetvoes. Our customers coming here expect from us that we can properly explain what our product is all about. And that is for me the more important thing.

Johan van Zyl, the head of Toyota Motor Europe, said his company isnt using women models to shape the image of the vehicles.

It is all about explaining the product, van Zyl said. Of course, models can also be utilized, but we dont want to make a derogatory type of display of females. It is not our company value and it is not what we want to be: Totally against it.

Neither Toyota nor Rolls-Royce had models standing by the cars, though they did have assistants both women and men dressed in business-wear to provide information to visitors.

Silvia Blattner, a spokeswoman for the Palexpo convention center that hosts the auto show, declined to wade in on the issue, saying in an e-mail that the motor show is a neutral platform for carmakers, which are free to decide how to present themselves.

Still, change comes hard and not all companies are on board. The Skoda display for its Vision X featured a visit from the 2011 Miss Czech, Jitka Novackova, posing for cameras in a short dress and black leather boots rising over the knee. Automakers like Alfa Romeo and Ssangyong, among others, trotted out models, too.

If Im honest, I can sense very little difference in the way the car companies are using the women on their stands. There are still women draped on cars as we walk around the show, said Jim Holder, editorial director of Autocar.

Really, is that acceptable in the modern world as a way to present your company?

The example of a "derogatory" display that accompanies that article:

Privacy experts are sounding an alarm over changes to Microsofts service agreement, saying its filled with vague terms and gives the company the right to review your content without your consent.

The update, which goes into effect May 1, prohibits users from using the services to publicly display or share inappropriate content or material including offensive language and nudity.

Civil rights activist Jonathan Corbett notes the ambiguity of the term offensive language, as that definition varies from person to person. Its worth noting that trash-talking is a regular occurrence among Xbox Live players.

If I call someone a mean name in Xbox Live, not only will they cancel my account, but also confiscate any funds Ive deposited in my account?, he asks.

Additionally, he notes, couples who engage in sexy video chats when theyre separated could not only be banned, but monitored by the tech giant as the new rules specify when investigating alleged violations of these Terms, Microsoft reserves the right to review Your Content in order to resolve the issue.

In 2018, when anyone can be offended by anything, these terms allow Microsoft staff to play unrestrained censor if and when they choose, says Corbett. Whats also clear is that they reserve the right to go through your private data, and these terms seem to pretty clearly allow them to watch and listen to your Skype calls, so long as they are investigating something. The terms dont appear to require any complaint to be filed against youjust that an employee deciding that they want to investigate.

Microsoft did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

On a good note, shit like this is the final nail in the coffin for lolbertarianism.  Not that I know anyone who takes it seriously these days.

Skype is being absolutely fucked to the ground. Version 8 is horrible on every platform. It looks like sort of a cross between the old MSN Messenger and Snapchat. Once they force version 7 users to upgrade, I'm done with it. The only problem is that there isn't a simple alternative to Skype yet. I'm most concerned about work-related stuff. Discord and Teamspeak are nice but for business use.

i am not sure, but I think this might have followed from the report their Governance Council put out in 2014 (https://www.asx.com.au/documents/asx-compliance/cgc-principles-and-recommendations-3rd-edn.pdf), which said 'Research has shown that increased gender diversity on boards is associated with better financial performance.'

Of course, what they're saying is literally true in that there's an association.  But studies looking at causation show nothing of the sort.  Check out the summary here: http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/will-gender-diversity-boards-really-boost-company-performance/

Essentially, meta-analyses of studies suggest that adding women to the board has either zero effect on performance, or an extremely small positive effect.  Never mind endogeneity problems which these kinds of data throw up - the Governance Council appears to not even understand basic problems and fallacies in measuring causation.

How about a simple test of the basic assumption - please list all of the Fortune 500 companies that only have women on the board. Surely, if adding *some* magic number of women is beneficial, then going whole hog and making them entirely staffed by women should yield the greatest effect. Or, does the effect vanish after you reach a certain estrogen level? What's the number of women added to the board before profits drop?


Or, and here's a novel suggestion, stop trying to socially engineer companies and let the market sort out the successful ones.

Activision Blizzard is now also opening senior development positions that are only for women and 80% of their 240 job listings will fall under the only for women catagory. The job listings that are up now are not officially sanctioned for women yet, but no guys will get hired if they even bother to apply.

Essentially if you worked at the company for years and were expecting a promotion and have a Y Chromosome you're shit out of luck. And it's not discrimination because other men got promoted before you did and while they're in the higher positions you need to make up for them not being women and take your licks.

Remember you belong to the male collective and you need to pay for other people's actions until we have "equality".

Ive never known a business run by women that arent in some form of decline.  Its pretty much what happens when all the money gets made and is now just comfortably drifting off of existing contracts and theres little risk to be taken.  Men take the risks and get rewarded for it.  Women want safe spaces and wont take risks that could grow the business other than wailing about having a vagina and getting preferential treatment because of it.

Essentially, meta-analyses of studies suggest that adding women to the board has either zero effect on performance, or an extremely small positive effect.  Never mind endogeneity problems which these kinds of data throw up - the Governance Council appears to not even understand basic problems and fallacies in measuring causation.

How about a simple test of the basic assumption - please list all of the Fortune 500 companies that only have women on the board. Surely, if adding *some* magic number of women is beneficial, then going whole hog and making them entirely staffed by women should yield the greatest effect. Or, does the effect vanish after you reach a certain estrogen level? What's the number of women added to the board before profits drop?


Or, and here's a novel suggestion, stop trying to socially engineer companies and let the market sort out the successful ones.

the argument would be there are advantages from having a diverse membership, not a unitary one, so having all women would be counterproductive.  this isn't patently ridiculous, but i am highly sceptical this kind of productive cognitive and personality diversity tracks with gender to the degree advocates of gender diversity on boards suggest it does. i'd expect that the women who get to senior corporate levels are, personality wise, extremely similar to their male colleagues.

i am not sure, but I think this might have followed from the report their Governance Council put out in 2014 (https://www.asx.com.au/documents/asx-compliance/cgc-principles-and-recommendations-3rd-edn.pdf), which said 'Research has shown that increased gender diversity on boards is associated with better financial performance.'

Of course, what they're saying is literally true in that there's an association.  But studies looking at causation show nothing of the sort.  Check out the summary here: http://knowledge.wharton.upenn.edu/article/will-gender-diversity-boards-really-boost-company-performance/

How in the hell does that relate to anything? Board members are primary investors and owners. what if I only have 2 chairmen? Ok here's a fix - have 30% self-identify as women. They can't argue with that, right?

Activision Blizzard is now also opening senior development positions that are only for women and 80% of their 240 job listings will fall under the only for women catagory. The job listings that are up now are not officially sanctioned for women yet, but no guys will get hired if they even bother to apply.

Essentially if you worked at the company for years and were expecting a promotion and have a Y Chromosome you're shit out of luck. And it's not discrimination because other men got promoted before you did and while they're in the higher positions you need to make up for them not being women and take your licks.

Remember you belong to the male collective and you need to pay for other people's actions until we have "equality".

Oh yeah I hate it too, but the whole point of identity politics is to have everyone in their own teams who populate their own little fiefdoms and all the fiefdoms are at constant war with each other over tit for tat.

Not only that if you're a guy and can't make it financially women judge you to be inferior and even though you've been disadvantaged by other men it doesn't matter. Where as every woman is automatically disadvantaged by men and therefore need gibs and stuff to "level the playing field" and if you don't give them cushy positions and shit, you're deemed a sexist.

Feminism has gotten so far off point it's endgame is dysfunction. It has no intention of building a stable or productive system, and many want men out of the equation entirely. The Lavender Menace is real.

If it were actually true that gender diversity on its own solidly increased economic performance then there would be absolutely no need to legislate it in to action, the companies would be implementing it themselves.

yep.  that's the logic of capitalism.  ironically much of the left sees capitalism as (1) a totalising ideology (it's not, it's an economic system that will never be purely implemented because it exists for human purposes, and humans have non-economic goals); and (2) a cause of racism.  but if the first were true, then the only thing that would matter is productivity, and if race and gender never had any effect on productivity then you would see a proportionate distribution.  so the second proposition is totally inconsistent with the first. 

because capitalism is not a totalitarian ideology, of course, it is possible that women or blacks or whatever would not have employment proportionate to their contributions...  but there are limits to how far you can go with that argument.  if it were truly an overwhelming advantage in a competitive market then competition would make it necessary as the pozz dog businesses outcompeted the others, even if a majority of the businesses would prefer to not hire blacks and women.  the fact that a lot of the pozzed corporations exist in non-competitive markets is why they can afford to discriminate on race and gender against merit, of course.

It's a super clumsy misdirection. Their purpose, which is still occasionally stated it loudly, is to take power away from white men and redistribute it to their electoral base, so they dress it up as "actually, diversity is good for you, shitlord" when talking to neutral audiences.

If you're ever arguing with one of these cunts in public (IRL, where they can't just block you), a good way to force them to come out is to idly ask "is business efficiency the goal, and putting minorities on the board is just the means to achieve it? Or is putting minorities on the board the goal, and efficiency just a side benefit?".

If they say it's the former, ask since when they've become such groveling capitalist asskissers that they've started a social movement to help make corporations even richer.

If they admit it's the latter, ask them why is it important to put minorities on CEO boards, and watch them try to spin a non-hateful answer when they can't use the "it's good for them, actually!" line anymore.

I'd be inherently skeptical whenever the left trots out some "one weird trick" where by implementing a leftist agenda, businesses get to experience significant growth.

A similar talking point I see getting trotted out from the same people is if we raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, businesses will suddenly get richer because of all this new spending power from the public.  In that case, why not raise the minimum wage to $100 an hour?  In this case, if introducing strong womyn and persyns of color to corporate boards will experience notable economic growth, then why not have every employee in these businesses be filled by these magical people?  How many trillions of dollars would Apple have in their market cap if it was run by a Somali lesbian?  It is kind of suspicious that these people are magical and will give us explosive business growth yet Somalia is a total shithole country.  Must be several millenia of white oppression.

The weirdest thing about treating men and women as these seperate groups that benifit from the success of others in their group is the fact that everyone, inbreeding excepted, has a equal number of male and female ancestors. If women 50 years ago were opressed by men, everyone alive today is a direct descendent of both opressors and the opressed and logically everyone alive today has been equally affected by such a system. There's a certian logic to, "My ancestors were slaves and that affects me today." The idea of , "I am a woman and the fact that women were traditionly opressed affects me more than a man" is non sensical.

yep.  i had the same thought when i was thinking through the general argument - that people might say 'well, you benefit from the patriarchy of your ancestors!' and the obvious response is, as you say, so do women (unless there's an unequal division of resources between kids anyway - iirc there are some studies on this showing at least in the west there isn't, but i haven't seen the literature).

on information to date, having more women on boards has either no positive effect or only a very small positive one.  the figures a lot of them quote about 30% improved profits suffer from a very clear endogeneity problem - is it that women cause those companies to be more successful, or is it that large companies can afford to appoint women?  but the correlations are there so people quote them without looking into anything more. 

i'd add the consensus on diversity in general at a non-board level is that demographics diversity hurts corporate performance, while job diversity (ie having people from a lot of different fields and different stages in their careers) helps corporate performance.  i don't think either effect is massive but i only casually read a couple of papers on it.

Howard Schultz steps down at Starbucks, may consider run for president

Quote
Howard Schultz is leaving Starbucks and says he may consider running for president.
Starbucks (SBUX) announced Monday that Schultz will step down later this month as executive chairman, the end of a 36-year run at the company.

In an interview with The New York Times, he acknowledged that he may consider a bid for the White House.

"I want to be truthful with you without creating more speculative headlines," he said. "For some time now, I have been deeply concerned about our country the growing division at home and our standing in the world."

Schultz later told CNN's Poppy Harlow in a statement: "I intend to think about a range of options, and that could include public service, but I'm a long way from making any decisions about the future."

Schultz, 64, one of the most politically outspoken corporate leaders in America, has been rumored before as a potential Democratic candidate.

He endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016. "On the other side," he told Harlow that September, "I think we've seen such vitriolic display of bigotry and hate and divisiveness, and that is not the leadership we need for the future of the country."

Last summer, he criticized President Trump after Trump said that both sides were to blame for violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

"My fear is not only that this behavior is being given permission and license, but its conduct is being normalized to the point where people are no longer hiding their face," Schultz said.

Schultz has spoken frequently about race, and Starbucks has taken progressive stances on social issues including gay marriage, immigration and Trump's travel ban. Last year, the company said it plans to hire 10,000 refugees over five years.

Starbucks has also been a leader in workers' benefits under Schultz. Since 1988, Starbucks has offered health care to all full-time and part-time employees. In March, the company said it reached gender and race pay equity for all US employees.

"Schultz has been a pioneer in setting and maintaining a culture of social responsibility both environmentally and socially while being able to maintain financial performance," Tim Hubbard, a management professor at the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business, said in an email.

Schultz has overseen enormous growth in three and a half decades at Starbucks. It has expanded from 11 stores in the early 1980s to more than 28,000 stores in 77 countries today, and a market value of $78 billion.

Schultz started in 1982 and served as chief executive from 1987 to 2000 and again from 2008 to 2017. He is leaving at a tumultuous moment in Starbucks' history.

The company drew protests in April after two black men were arrested while they were waiting inside a Philadelphia store. Starbucks closed 8,000 stores for an afternoon last week to teach employees about racial bias.

"We realize that four hours of training is not going to solve racial inequity in America," Schultz told Harlow last week. But he said, "We need to have the conversation. We need to start."

Schultz has addressed race before. After the police shooting death of an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, Starbucks asked baristas to write "Race Together" on coffee cups in hopes of starting conversations.

"It's not going to solve racism, but I do believe it is the right thing to do at this time," Schultz said at the time.

And in a speech to Starbucks shareholders in 2016, Schultz said he feared that the opportunities that allowed him to achieve his American Dream he grew up in subsidized housing in Brooklyn have escaped the grasp of too many people.

"The American Dream can't be only accessible to people of privilege who are white and live in the right zip code," he said.

In an email to Starbucks employees, Schultz did not address a future in politics. He expressed gratitude and encouraged the employees to foster a "sense of community and human connection."

"I still feel like a kid from Brooklyn who grew up in public housing," he said. "I am living the American Dream."

Schultz moved from CEO to executive chairman last year. Kevin Johnson has been CEO since then.

Starbucks said Monday that Myron Ullman, former CEO of JCPenney, will become the next chair of Starbucks' board. Mellody Hobson, the president of Ariel Investments, will become vice chair.

The launch contract will cost the US Air Force $130 million, far less than the $350 million average cost of United Launch Alliances Delta IV, previously the heaviest lifter in the US arsenal.

My city is now trying to tackle the perceived problem of underepresentation of African and Middle-Eastern ethnic minorities and women in prominent positions of local government.

Yes, women are underrepresented, but some seem to forget that 87% of women refuse to participate in the full-time workweek, most women prefer part-time jobs, the remaining 13% quit their full-time job after 5-7 years.

If you have to compete for a promotion to a (more) prominent position, you will do so among male co-workers who are on the job 50-70 hours a week, you are going to lose.

Unless you are placed there, circumventing the filtering-road of merit that leads to such a position, kicking full-time hardworking folks in the face.

African and middle eastern ethnic minorities are absurdly over represented in problem statistics such as leaving school without diploma, crime, living of the dole, so you wind up with a far smaller group of viable candidates, in fact so severely compromised, that there may not be any candidates there, assuming any are even showing up for interviews.

The federal government keeps paying for rapports executed by left-wing academia that state the wonders of ethnic diversity.

My province is the last holdout in The Netherlands where these rapports are viewed with much deserved skepticism, and have so far been avoided by stating that the implementation of the advised diversity protocols would do more harm than good by damaging the public's trust, but the push from above is very real and we will eventually budge.

Reality: Netflix exec used it once during a meeting discussing what words can't be used in their programming and a second time when discussing the incident with Human Resources.

As long as you just hear the headline it sounds like Netflix is bravely standing up to racism.  When you actually learn what happened, Netflix comes off as completely unreasonable.  Netflix's entire argument is that "nigger" is a magic word and as long as your skin color is whiter than Mocha Almond on the color swatch, you're not allowed to use under any circumstances.

Nigger has become a word white people are almost legally forbidden to say, with dire consequences if they do. It's now on a Draw Mohammed level of social censorship.

The biggest concern is that it is an indicator of our nations inability to discuss issues and come to any kind of meaningful resolution. This word only makes it obvious because of its history and infamy but this same kind of softening is happening across the entire language spectrum. The danger is it reduces the primary purposes of communication, to convey information about the physical world.

How are we ever going to stop niggers from killing each other if the only reaction to factual relay of the information is anger at the "tone". Even if it is phrased better people react emotionally to the point where sad things just continue happening while people stand around arguing about how that information makes them feel down in their heartsong.


The american LTBGGIA cannot even mention they would be thrown off buildings in Iran. They self censor for fear of offense. When they see people like Trump asking for what he wants and defending his people instead of doing the same they revert to crabs in a bucket.

Netflix's entire argument is that "nigger" is a magic word and as long as your skin color is whiter than Mocha Almond on the color swatch, you're not allowed to use under any circumstances.

Nigger has become a word white people are almost legally forbidden to say, with dire consequences if they do. It's now on a Draw Mohammed level of social censorship.

I don't go around saying "nigger" all day but as an American it really bothers me when someone tells me I can't say something, ever, under any circumstances.

it's just frankly embarassing when you see a news outlet or any report that says 'the n-word' instead of saying it or even censoring letters of it. it's grown adults acting like five year old children tattling on another kid for saying fuck: 'he said the f-word!!!!'

At some point, there has to be a line where you're allowed to use a viciously vile, reprehensible hate slur in response to some of the most disgusting behavior known to mankind.

If there was some way to remove all the bias, stigma and social moors that revolve around racism and hate speech, I think at the very least that literally every human being on the entire planet of sound mental awareness can agree that the video of the black woman getting tazed in front of her her kids.... "YOU GAY! YOU GAY! YOU GAY! DAS WHY YOU GAY! YOU GAY!" would warrant use of the word, as a response.

Even the most extremely liberal/social justice driven socialist would admit "Ok, I thought about the possibility of her being a textbook nigger, while I was watching that."

Correct.  They demand nothing more than complete submission and apologies for absolutely everything they can get.  It goes hand in hand with how you can't ever argue with any of them without their whole tactic of acting smug and throwing insults into absolutely every single line of dialog.  And it's remarkable how they all argue in the exact same fashion:  acting like a holier-than-thou prick in order to enrage their opponent, get them to say one of the many, many things they deem naughty, and then  :ultlibrage: SCREAM LIKE HARPIES :ultlibrage: about what our alleged something-ist had to say.

You can make the argument go absolutely nowhere by picking apart exactly what they said and asking why they're using such an unnecessarily rude tone over such matters.  They will try to ignore that and go back to their original point, but all you've got to do is take control of the argument and not let up on that.  They'll generally get smug about your questioning of their point, but just stay firm on that and you'll end up in an exhausting stalemate.  This works every single time, because all liberals think the exact same way, and not a single one is bright enough to escape the loop.  Try it on Reddit sometime and have a laugh.

If you can control language, vocabulary, and the medium of expression in addition to having a monopoly on deciding social taboos, you can prevent the dissemination and even the creation of wrongthink. People who can't express novel thoughts articulately aren't dangerous, especially if they know they can be ruined for saying one of the ever-increasing list of no-no words they do know.

Starbucks continues their downward spiral: http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/394221-starbucks-expands-health-benefits-for-transgender-employees

Quote
Starbucks announced Monday that it will expand health benefits for transgender employees, including covering surgeries that were previously considered cosmetic.

The company has covered gender reassignment surgery since 2012, but will now cover services like breast reduction or augmentation, hair transplants, voice therapy and facial feminization surgery.

Starbucks partnered with the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) to create the new benefits. A WPATH official said that Starbucks is the first company to do so.
The approach was driven not just by the companys desire to provide truly inclusive coverage, and by powerful conversations with transgender partners about how those benefits would allow them to truly be who they are, said Ron Crawford, vice president of benefits at Starbucks, in a statement.

Transgender advocates have applauded the changes, saying that many of the procedures that insurers consider to be strictly cosmetic can be life-affirming or even life-saving for transgender people.

Starbucks has been praised in the past for its policies related to LGBTQ workplace equality, and earned a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundations annual Corporate Equality Index rankings for 2018, making the company a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality.

The company has recently come under fire over several race-related incidents. Starbucks closed more than 8,000 stores nationwide one day last month for anti-bias training after two black men were handcuffed and removed from a Philadelphia store while waiting for a friend.

Fuckin LMAO, what a shitshow Starbucks is

This is correct.

Political correctness disguises itself cleverly under the guise of politeness, but it is essentially best viewed as an instrument to control how we talk, and about what we talk.

First they took our actions, now they are taking our words.

It is perhaps interesting to note that restrictions on free speech are largest at those places with an abundance of ethnic diversity, the lowest common denominator of-course being Islam.

By labeling the most important topics as hate-speech you and I are left with small talk.

Monopolizing the truth is about keeping the narrative intact.

Controlling social realities si best done through language and getting the people to police each other over words.

Linguistic viruses: The left consists of enabling and playing at people s capacity for illusions, far from the ugly reality in which they exist, this is where their thunderstorm of resentments builds up.

The power within you is then externalized to the system that surrounds you a prisoner of your own self chosen defeat, because people don't understand what is happening inside them when this occurs, unable to face this horrid truth, they immediately projecting the loss of power to more able social surroundings , it making people feel entitled, victimized and resentful, in a furious rage the successful are made to bleed, if I cant get up they must be taken down, all contrast must be removed.

This is how socialism removes incentives and creates downward spirals with ever weakening mammals.

You punish the behavior you want to see while rewarding the behavior you would like to see less of.

A virus of the mind where believers may be similarly violent in disposition towards apostates or heretics, even if those espouse only a slightly different version of their faith.

Linguistic scientists analyze the propagation of religious ideas and behaviors as a memetic virus, some deep, inner conviction that something is true, or right, or virtuous: a conviction that doesn't seem to owe anything to evidence or reason, but which, nevertheless, the believer feels as totally compelling and convincing, by cultural transmission.

This is ultimately why memes are so powerful, and why they are so afraid, of them.

Thank you for Reading.

Hate the logical fallacy shit so much. The whole point of being able to identify them is that it allows you to craft a response that exposes a hole in their argument. If someone is "ad homineming ( :madgoon: )", then you can respond with something like "hey you said all x are y and when I asked for proof you just called me a faggot!", but just yelling "that's ad hominem!!!" is clearly a fallacy in its own right. The other one that idiots love to use is to just go "you strawmanned me" without any further explanation, and then the argument inevitably devolves into a retarded, off-topic back and forth about that instead of the topic. It's the laziest shit and typically comes from people who like to think of themselves as intellectuals and constantly accuse others of "Dunning-Kruger" etc.

Law firm cuckoldry: https://www.afr.com/business/legal/women-are-taking-over-the-engine-room-of-law-firms-20180708-h12ejk

Some funny bits:

Quote
There have been some noticeable movers in the latest data. HWL Ebsworth had 58 per cent women senior associates two years ago; now it has 70 per cent...

Despite the big increase at HWL Ebsworth, managing partner Juan Martinez said gender diversity across the firm "is not currently where we would like it to be".

"The situation is steadily improving though, with a much higher representation of females within our lateral recruitment activities and internal promotions," Mr Martinez said.

What the fuck?  So what percentage would you be happy with, Mr Martinez?  90%?  95%?  Or maybe 99.whatever%, with the .whatever% representing your position as the eunuch guard of the harem?

Now, maybe that is somewhat defensible - law grads in Australia tend to be over 60% female.  And partnership is still overwhelming male.  Of course it can be wondered how many women stick around to the level where they would be reasonable candidates for partner, and we have to take account that until, say, 20 years ago, there might have really been some level of discrimination, and only from then could you expect closer to proportional representation.

And:

Quote
This month, the various state bars are inviting applications for silk. In the past two years, the NSW Bar had 193 applicants for silk. Only 30 (16pc) were women, yet they made up 30 per cent of the new SCs (8 of 26).

I'm not sure if 'silk' is a phrase non-Commonwealth people are familiar with, but it means Queen's or Senior Counsel - only awarded to the most distinguished lawyers who appear in court (many Commonwealth jurisdictions separate their law profession into solicitors and barristers, with only barristers able to appear in court).  Earlier today it said 18/26 of new SCs were female, and they've corrected this; still, these kind of proportions are highly peculiar.

Any White Gentleman who watches Niggerball or Kicking Niggerball is a cuck.

You watch Kunta Kintes who scorn you and other White fans as slavemasters who stopped them from being KANGZ (which they heard about from their tumblr blogs/Nation of Islam infested education) kick around balls and go ape when they score.

You paint a Nigger's name or symbol on your chest.

You tell your daughter to stay away from the Tyrone Jamals yet cheer on them when they throw around some balls. Your daughter notices this and proceeds to ruin her lineage.

You watch other White Men's daughters gyrate in front of maybe HIV equipped Niggers wearing outfits hookers would be impressed at.

Doesn't really matter if they are funny or not, same with Michael Ian Black. It's not much worse than the edgelord shit we've all said here, on SASS, or SA.

Liberals whining about the "unfairness" of "white supremacists attacking people who criticize Trump" are getting the wrong takeaway. The issue isn't that some people say shit and get doxxed/fired and others don't. It's that nobody should get doxxed or fired for shit they say outside of work, or said 20 years ago, or sanctioned like that baseball player who is having to undergo "sensitivity training" and volunteer for "diversity initiatives" for shit he tweeted in HS.

It's rapidly reaching a point in society where some dumb shit a 12 year old kid does is going to come back and ruin their life when they are 45. And most of this is coming from the left. If they left doesn't like it, they should look in the mirror and stop trying to destroy Freeze Peach.

It will become almost impossible for a Gen Y or Z to run for office in 20 years because nobody will pass the purity tests of having their entire life scrutinized. You find one person who says "yeah, they said THE N-WORD on the playground in 4th grade" and that's it, game over.

I might have felt the tiniest bit bad for the guy, but none of his """"""""jokes"""""""" were any good. I think you should be able to get away with saying just about anything as long as it's funny, but his tweets amounted to "Some people fuck children", or "I'm in NAMBLA, lol".

Doesn't really matter if they are funny or not, same with Michael Ian Black. It's not much worse than the edgelord shit we've all said here, on SASS, or SA.

Liberals whining about the "unfairness" of "white supremacists attacking people who criticize Trump" are getting the wrong takeaway. The issue isn't that some people say shit and get doxxed/fired and others don't. It's that nobody should get doxxed or fired for shit they say outside of work, or said 20 years ago, or sanctioned like that baseball player who is having to undergo "sensitivity training" and volunteer for "diversity initiatives" for shit he tweeted in HS.

It's rapidly reaching a point in society where some dumb shit a 12 year old kid does is going to come back and ruin their life when they are 45. And most of this is coming from the left. If they left doesn't like it, they should look in the mirror and stop trying to destroy Freeze Peach.

It will become almost impossible for a Gen Y or Z to run for office in 20 years because nobody will pass the purity tests of having their entire life scrutinized. You find one person who says "yeah, they said THE N-WORD on the playground in 4th grade" and that's it, game over.

I agree.

I agree in principle that you shouldn't get fired for what you say outside of work. However, I see nothing wrong with holding the left to the standards they've put forth. Being the "better man" isn't going to show them the error of their ways. It just makes it easier for them to fuck you over while they mock you for having ethics. They made their bed; now they get to lie in it.

Yep.  They singlehandedly created this shitstorm, let them reap the whirlwind.

They're not going to learn their lesson either.  Their atrophied chicken brains from terminal cases of TDS will never allow them to.  Just another one of the left's wonderful contributions to modern society.

So nobody is going to point out that these tweets are only a problem after somebody points them out?

Like Disney didn't know in the 6 years they've been working with him, and when they hired him the tweets would be less than two years old. So don't give me that needle in a haystack shit.

10 FUN FACTS ABOUT PASSOVER. 1) You may think that Passover is a time Jews get together to celebrate the Last Supper and teaming up to kill Jesus Christ. This is totally not the case. 2) Many Jews associate Gefilte fish with memories of their grandmothers (pg 5, Passover guide). 3) The above is an ornamental display on the table during the Seder dinner.

Haven't found an archive of this but supposedly this deleted tweet was Gunn shitting over christianity while using his jewish ethnicity as a reason for it.

Pretty much all of the blue checks and funnyman tumblrtards are sweating a lot over this. Not because they actually care if shitcanning Gunn was "fair" or not, but because it shows that their soycreature feminazi white ally intersectionalism credentials are absolutely worthless and doesn't stand a chance when pitted against reality itself. Gunn was the central person behind the Marvel cinematic universe, and it really didn't take much to destroy him. Imagine how easy it will be with the rest of the soys, being that the overwhelming majority of them are burger flippers/elemental "disability" gibs.

Of course I keep hearing that the next Wave of Marvel movies after the Infinity War cleanup will begin committing Marvel's infamously bad progressive hero swaps to film so maybe this is the beginning of the end.

There is zero interest in most cases right now for any corporation to defend it's employees. Look at all the people getting fired because they said "nigger" once in a private meeting and not in a pejorative way--sometimes even in the service of being anti racist. Papa John for example, or the studio execs. I think there was a white newspaper editor who was railing against the racism of white people singing along with nigger in rap lyrics, and because he said it wrong, he was fired. :tuss:

They seem to be going all in on the equation that "any controversy will be deadly so we have to act swiftly and definitively." The only exception right now is Chris Hardwick...I'm surprised his status has remained in limbo so long. But it does seem like there is no amount of good work you can do or money you can make for a company that will save you if you make one slip up. That's mostly for high profile execs and media figures/celebs, but if it doesn't change it will trickle down to us quickly. It already does if the racism/sexism whatever goes viral because even Joe Average employees in restaurants, stores, etc are getting fired after they get filmed on a sail fawn and it hits youtube and The Root.

One unintended consequence of the swift actions by corporate entities is that the people who want to rail and protest get quickly deflated and have a lot of energy they need to direct. So after getting fast, unanticipated justice, they will move on to trying to further doxx and ruin the life of the person who was fired. If the company stood by them, and there were protests and then they got fired, that would be justice. Get fired right away? Now we need to attack their family and make sure they never work again.

I hope it all implodes. The actual comic book side of things is profoundly unpopular, even more so when compared directly to the movies. The only Marvel comics that do anything approaching "OK" are the ones that are most like their old stuff about evil white men.

Remember when liberal women wrote about right-wing assholes saying total nonsense like "Liberalina is a total bitch who isn't afraid to say what she thinks with her dirty left-wing whore mouth and I'd love to rape some sense into her because she's such a rebel?" Half-assed lies that were self-serving compliments.

Has one of those "message written on the receipt" things ever been real?

Normal People: "I don't like this server so I am not going to tip them."

Fiction of Bigot: "I'm enough of a bigoted asshole to hate this server because of their gender/race/obvious faggotry, but not enough of an asshole to yell at them during the meal. I'm a suave, sneaky, slick asshole who is going to eat the entire meal, not tip, write a mean note on the receipt and leave before I can witness and enjoy the reaction of this subhuman who I'm letting handle all the food I am eating."

Actual Bigot: *gets up and leaves the second the shitskin reaches their table*

Some do, just less so ones with HFCS in them. Pepsi Throwback was fantastic.

Xfinity driver Conor Daly loses sponsorship over father's slur

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. -- Lilly Diabetes has pulled its sponsorship of Conor Daly's No. 6 car in the NASCAR Xfinity race at Road America, citing a racially insensitive remark made by the driver's father in the 1980s that surfaced this week.

Lilly said in a statement Friday that its sponsorship was intended to raise awareness for treatment options and resources for people living with diabetes.

"Unfortunately, the comments that surfaced this week by Derek Daly distract from this focus, so we have made the decision that Lilly Diabetes will no longer run the No. 6 at Road America this weekend," Lilly said.

Primarily an IndyCar driver, Conor Daly is making his NASCAR debut at the rural Wisconsin road course Saturday with Roush Fenway Racing.

"The last (24 hours) have been quite an unnecessarily difficult ride for my family. There is A LOT I want to say ... but I'm still here and still racing,'' Daly wrote on Twitter on Friday night.

In a statement, Derek Daly said he admitted to using a racial slur for African-Americans during a radio interview in the early 1980s. Daly, who had just moved to the United States then, said the term had a different meaning and connotation in his native Ireland. Daly is a former CART and Formula One driver.

Daly said he was "mortified" when he learned how the term was used in the United States and has never used it since then. Conor Daly, 26, wasn't born when his father made the comment.

"Finally, I want everyone to know I deeply regret and sincerely apologize for what I said more than three decades ago," the elder Daly said in his statement.


I hope everybody involved gets Type 3 diabetes.

Speaking of which, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 production has been put on indefinite hold. They might have to actually stop making one of their biggest subfranchises because they can't find a sufficiently woke replacement director with an unimpeachable social media history.

That is pretty much the most harmless, well-intentioned use of 'nigger' you can imagine. Not surprising that it did not cause him any trouble at the time.

We really need to bookmark this story and shitpost it whenever we get the slightest chance. The father, maybe, but it's impossible to defend the firing of the son without turning off normies. If you can get a libshit to comment on this story, it's an automatic win - they either admit that purity spiraling can go too far (which they never, ever do), or they instantly lose all credibility.

The text in the ad reads "Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything." This man is a millionaire. I don't doubt he worked hard to become an athlete, but saying some rich guy has sacrificed "everything" is a bit much. Pee pee. Poo poo. "Inspirational" ads cater to stupid people who want to share them on social media and talk about how inspiring a guy who makes a multiple of what they make in their entire lives per year for chasing a ball around while they talk about how corrupt Wall Street fat cats are without a hint of irony.

Does google really have a fucking high school assembly every week?

*Edit* Lol, Apparently Google will match employees charitable donations up to a certain dollar amount and I just got to the part where someone asks about increasing the the cap. The people onstage start sputtering and essentially say no in corporate-speak ("It's something we'll look into"), after previously stating one of the reasons this horrible guy they hate got elected was because of income disparity. So yeah, Google says income disparity is a problem and leads to extremist viewpoints and bad outcomes in elections, but doesn't want to use Google's money to fix it. Whenever someone rolling in cash like Jim Carrey or one of these big tech firms wants to fix income inequality, they always want to fix it with someone else's money.

This company is so hypocritical. They have this cry session with a hug circle talking about how fucked up politics is and how everyone needs to be progressive and how we all need to get along and love one another, yet they employ fuckers like this guy (https://www.businessinsider.com/google-cloud-new-ai-chief-history-military-security-task-force-2018-9) who essentially want to police the entire world using artificially intelligent drones, and has ties to the US military.

They spent a huge chunk of the video talking about tolerance for other political views, yet the treatment of Jame Damore clearly demonstrates they don't give a fuck about it.

It's kind of stirring to see the employees in that video drinking down the Kool-aid. Every Sunday morning when I was growing up we went to church. Each church service started with the minister telling everyone to take a moment to greet their neighbor, and you'd shake hands with everyone around you and say, "Good morning." Given that life experience, the hug thing was a bit too on the nose for me. This is a church.

*Edit again* Sergey Brin argues that people didn't vote for Trump because they were poor, they voted for him because they were bored. He says people making under 100k voted for Hillary, but people making over 100k voted for Trump. You can look at the exit poll numbers and see that's not true. (https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/11/08/us/politics/election-exit-polls.html) Hillary had a slight edge with people making under 50K, Trump had a slight edge with people making between 50-100k and they were in a statistical tie with after 100K where Trump doesn't lead by more than a single percentage point until you get over $250k where he only leads by 2%. Here's the really telling number, 78% of people who felt they were in a worse family financial situation today voted for Trump. 78%! What happened is you had these talking heads on the news parroting about America's economic recovery from the 2008 crisis, and the people in middle America who weren't part of it and felt they were worse off than they were before 2008 gave the talking heads and the Dems a giant middle finger. But Brin is going to say it's because they were bored because he has a story to sell his congregation, so this big wealthy company doesn't look like the bad guy. It can't possibly be because a bunch of people in the middle class where thrown under the bus during the financial crisis. They voted for Donald Trump because they have repetitive jobs and they're bored!

if you watched the video of the first kike crone, she p much says this in a semi roundabout way at one point when she talks about patients' awareness of tissue harvesting. the only thing missing being she doesn't mention what the cells are used for, which is very easy to infer based on just... looking at what these tissue samples are used for... probably every single woman who has ever had an abortion has been purposely mislead and lied to about this and i doubt many if any of them know that their doctor made profit from harvesting the organs of their would-be child.

both videos repeatedly mention how they rush women into the chair and perform abortions same day on the spot within hours of intake in order to reduce the chances of them thinking about and questioning what's happening to them. one of the videos on that youtube channel (not in the two linked ones) even goes into specifics on how they hide the fine print in the paperwork and how they instruct their providers to rush the women through signing everything.

Who remembers the spacex talk from a couple months ago?

Quote
SpaceX has won its first contract to launch a classified military satellite on its Falcon Heavy rocket, beating out rival United Launch Alliance, a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Boeing.

The launch contract will cost the US Air Force $130 million, far less than the $350 million average cost of United Launch Alliances Delta IV, previously the heaviest lifter in the US arsenal.

https://qz.com/1311779/spacex-sold-the-us-air-force-a-falcon-heavy/amp/

2 more similar launches will make the cost savings exceed the entire investment the US Govt (USAF/NASA) put into SpaceX

Update from the other side

Quote
NASA's Mars rocket is behind schedule and over budget due to 'Boeing's poor performance,' audit finds

The space agency was also found inflating the contractors score and leading to overly generous award fees in six evaluation periods since 2012 when Boeing was awarded the contract. That led to $323 million in paid fees, of which nearly $64 million were found to be questionable by the audit.

https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/space/go-for-launch/os-nasa-sls-delay-report-20181010-story.html

From sourced OIG Report

Quote
At its current rate, we project Boeing will expend at least $8.9 billion through 2021double the amount initially planned while delivery of the first Core Stage has slipped 2 years from June 2017 to December 2019 and may slip further.

Between June 2014 and August 2018, Boeing spent over $600 million more than planned on developing Core Stages 1 and 2, and NASA officials have confirmed that in FY 2018 alone Boeing expended $226 million more than planned. Cost increases and schedule delays of Core Stage development can be traced largely to management, technical, and infrastructure issues driven by Boeings poor performance. For example, Boeing officials have consistently underestimated the scope of the work to be performed and thus the size and skills of the workforce required. In addition, development of command and control hardware and software necessary for Core Stage testing is 2 years behind schedule, while equipment-related mishaps and an extreme weather event contributed to cost and schedule delays. Individually, each of these issues may have caused only minor cost and schedule problems, but taken as a whole they have resulted in a 2 -year slip to the SLS Core Stage delivery schedule and approximately $4 billion in cost increases for development of the first two Core Stages. Furthermore, Boeings cost and schedule challenges are likely to worsen given that the SLS has yet to undergo its Green Run Testa major milestone that integrates and tests the Core Stage components.

I wonder why we are paying an assload for such shit work

For a program that has major support from Congress, with nearly $12 billion poured into it so far and the participation of 1,100 contractors across 43 states, thats not likely, said Laura Seward Forczyk, owner of space consulting firm Astralytical.

This is also pretty lol albeit anecdotal

Quote
I worked on this program for a while as an engineer. I first hand dealt with a lot of people who low-key purposefully delayed productivity to make their jobs last longer/be more secure/look more important. It's been a huge problem within Boeing and NASA. There is little accountability for this kind of behavior, especially on tax payer funded "cost plus" programs like SLS.

People literally create fake problems out of thin air, just to waste time looking into it and fixing something that didn't need to be fixed, this created unnecessary work for 10 other people. It caused manufacturing and testing delays across multiple subcontracting companies. Anyone working for a subcontract company on the programprobably knows what I'm talking about.

It's no surprise to me that SpaceX made a rocket nearly as capable for a fraction of the development cost, with less people, in a third of the time.

SLS could be a decent system but is doubly handicapped by NASA (government) and Boeing (government contractors).  I've worked in Federal and am sure there's plenty of fuckup blame to go around on both sides.

Even if it was ready to launch today, SLS would launch a somewhat larger payload than the Falcon Heavy at ten times the price.  It's basically a retirement make-work program for old aerospace engineers.

Here's a hilarious paragraph from early 2015: http://www.thespacereview.com/article/2737/1
Quote
With SpaceX projecting a first Falcon Heavy flight in 2015,2 even with some slippage it seems reasonable to suppose that Falcon Heavy will be at least as operational in 201819 as the SLS. Both craft should have made at least one flight, allowing mission planners to ground future efforts in reality rather than speculation.

Falcon Heavy has already flown, SLS is still at least four years away.

Mark my words, SLS will NEVER fly.

Wasting money is cool and good when you're wasting a lot of money elsewhere too


If SLS ever launches it'll be in 2022 or later, and by that time SpaceX will be so far ahead that the SLS launch will be an utter embarrassment.  $10B to date and no launch for SLS vs $2B for SpaceX lifetime investment, and SpaceX is already launching and turning a profit.

The space race is over, SpaceX won.

What if all the attempts to take down the South African based rocket man are deep state operations to take down SpaceX for developing cost effective and effective solutions to the bloated military-industrial complex?  :adam:

I hate to sperg, but this type of fiscal stupidity pisses me off

I havent done any research into SLS or falcon heavy but really the money that goes into nasa is a drop in the bucket compared with the $770bn defense spending ear marked for fy 2018 this dumb program is cheap and easy.

You're going to have this with any type of substantial government spending.  The contractor will extend the contract as long as possible to suck out every penny.  The difference comes down to practical application of what the funding is going towards. 

DOD programs are much lengthier (usually decades), more common/consistent, and more practical, so the impact is less noticeable and the public is relatively willing to tolerate it. 

NASA programs are typically much shorter (usually several years, unless you're a handful of support staff) and less tangible, so the impact is more pronounced.  The public seems to be willing to tolerate it though because "NASA!" can do no wrong.

Realistically, who gives a shit about the James Webb Space Telescope unless you're one of 50 dudes smart enough to either be a participating investigator or incorporate the science into your work?  Answer: zero, unless you're one of those lying shits reddit is filled with who he haw any time "space" is mentioned.  I think JWST is pretty cool and deserved funding, but it should be a public outrage at how vastly over budget it has grown and how slow it is coming along.  It also should be a public outrage every time some jackass NOC contractor drops screws inside to get the gravy train extended 2.5 years.

All of this is compounded, maybe intentionally, by NASA forgetting where its balls are.  Exploration is inherently dangerous and you should minimize the risk; however, you can only realistically minimize that risk so far.  You're never going to hit 100%.  But hey lets spend billions extra and waste years going from 95% safe to 97% safe.

And all of this is unlikely to end because the public has really no desire to hold NASA responsible for wisely investing and Congress is all about funding regional employment programs because it gets them reelected. SLS is a great example.

On one hand we have: SLS

On the other we have: BFR

I'm no math major, but we could have funded BFR 4x over for the amount spent on SLS so far and in turn we would have gotten 20+ flights with a single BFR for the cost of a single SLS flight. 

Meanwhile, Falcon Heavy has made SLS redundant as a heavy launch vehicle for LEO and has a flight cost 1/4th that of SLS.  In recognition of that, NASA is taking the bolder approach and purchasing a third SLS core

Falcon Heavy has already flown, SLS is still at least four years away.

Mark my words, SLS will NEVER fly.

A lot of people are saying this, but I think they will do 1-2 launches just to say "look we just didn't want high-paying jobs for the boys for a decade, here are the rockets, aren't they magnificient". Then somebody in government actually adds all the numbers up and yells "are you fucking kidding me" and the program gets canceled and another similar program started elsewhere in NASA.

Realistically, who gives a shit about the James Webb Space Telescope unless you're one of 50 dudes smart enough to either be a participating investigator or incorporate the science into your work?  Answer: zero, unless you're one of those lying shits reddit is filled with who he haw any time "space" is mentioned.  I think JWST is pretty cool and deserved funding, but it should be a public outrage at how vastly over budget it has grown and how slow it is coming along.  It also should be a public outrage every time some jackass NOC contractor drops screws inside to get the gravy train extended 2.5 years.

JWST has the potential to be Hubble 2.0, it is a very important piece of kit and very exciting for a lot of science folks who are looking for potentially habitable planetary systems around other stars. What has happened to the project is a fucking travesty. The delays, the costs, the technical problems... very disappointing.

And you are right about NASA finding their balls. Space isn't safe. People are going to die, spaceships are going to crash and explode on take-off. There will be real disasters and horror stories when we actually set our sights on Mars for human colonization. With that kind of pussy attitude we have now America would not have gotten conquered and we need to eject the mentality for space exploration as well. There are a lot of people who would be willing to go to Mars on a one-way ticket to set up the first stations.

So space x is good then. Okay. Great.

Maybe the nasa things will be good too.

Technically it could deliver, but financially it will never be feasible. If we want bases on Moon and the Mars, we need many many launches to deliver the cargo and people there. That means reusable rockets. No government is willing to shell out the same kind of cash for Mars which USA did for the Moon in the 70s. So the cost has to be kept at a reasonable level. You simply can't do it with the SLS. The math isn't there.

Pic of the Nike CEO, looks like he is part of the pedo vore cult.

The fuck is up with all these kikes posing with weird pedo gore shit.

They are into raping children, eating children, keeping children as slaves, injecting children with hormones to induce puberty early, etc.
Walnut Sauce, q deleted his own drop about it and the first time I heard it was from... well a guy who made some outrageous claims from any pov.

Didn't the Walnut Sauce thing come from Podesta's hacked emails? The same ones that also mentioned Hairless Pizza?  :umberto:
It was the first time I heard the term walnut sauce but the first time I heard of people being harvested for adrenaline glads was from a guy who claimed alien like creatures were living in the center of the earth harvesting it.  :alex:

Wish I could find that video, the guy was famous in various circles. Not saying I believe it or not but this shit is fun.

i hate shit like that because it's basically just dead ends to discourage normies from digging into legitimate things and to gaslight anyone smart enough to question shit into thinking they're turning into a kook. harvesting adrenochrome from fetuses/infants, young blood transfusions, and all that kinda stuff doesn't qualify as conspiracy theory. theres hundreds of frequently cited papers in pubmed and there are even public facing companies selling the treatments. there's associated press articles going back 20 years naming elites receiving these treatments. you could go out and get an infant/fetal blood transfusion for around the cost of a used car today if you wanted to. its not even remotely esoteric, nor debatable if it is occurring on a massive scale, because its done in the open with sanction from our governments and the export figures are public. the only real conspiracy or theory is when people point out that the bleeding edge of life extension research is basically just confirming that there's something more than just edginess and creepiness to the esoteric religious shit they believe surrounding child sacrifice cannibalism and pedophilia. how they figured this shit out before abrahamic religion even existed and how they kept it within their inbred circle of elites for so long is really the only mystery going on.

we must learn about what they openly admit to so that we don't fall into the same trap as the boomers by expecting normalcy from these sickos.
Great post Wow, kill yourself btw

Meanwhile, Imaan Hammam (who is not white) is in the same set with her hair straightened. Not a peep.

If blacks really took cultural appropriation seriously, they would go back to eating lion dicks and living in mud huts.

Papa John's swings to a loss as embattled pizza chain spends millions to repair tarnished image

Papa John's swung to a loss and missed Wall Street earnings forecasts after spending millions of dollars during the third quarter to repair its tarnished image following a nasty public feud with its founder.

The company lost $13 million, or 41 cents a share, during the third quarter, compared with a profit of $21.8 million, or 60 cents a share, during the same period last year, the company said after the market closed Tuesday. After adjusting for certain items, the company earned 20 cents a share while analysts expected 22 cents a share, according to average estimates compiled by Refinitiv.

he company excluded $24.8 million in special charges from its adjusted earnings that included $3.6 million in costs to remove Schnatter's image from its marketing materials and $9.9 million in financial assistance to its franchise owners.

The company generated $364 million in revenue, down 15.7 percent from $431.7 million during the same time last year missing analysts' estimates of $393.7 million.

The company expects to spend between $25 and $35 million in the fourth quarter on financial assistance for its franchisees, marketing, legal fees and the cost of hiring a consultant to audit the culture at Papa John's.

Boy howdy who would have thunk that abruptly firing your founder, CEO and face of your marketing would have financial strings attached?

But hey, all those grateful women and minorities and liberals must be rewarding you for such bold action by buying more pizza, right? RiGhT??!!1


Quote
The company also updated its same-store sales forecast. It now expects same-store sales to be down between 6.5 and 8.5 percent for the full year, a smaller range than the 7 to 10 percent decline it had anticipated previously. :tuss:

The last two years have been difficult for Papa John's. Since hitting an all-time high of $90.49 per share in December 2016, its stock has lost nearly half its value on disappointing same-store sales growth that executives blamed on everything from increased competition with other pizza chains to the National Football League's handling of player protests during performances of the national anthem last fall.

Real talk, has anyone ever actually come across a layman 401k account holder who has stock in either Domino's or Papa Jon's? Is that actually something people do?

I always just assumed Papa Jon's and Domino's stocks are only touched by high volume trading algorithms, not actual human beings.

I'd love to see the investment committee meeting where the pitch is "Ok guys, I brought lunch. Now, we're all gonna eat this pizza and if we can make it through the rest of the meeting without having to sprint to the bathroom, we're gonna drop %2 of our liquidity in PZZA."

Stocks like this only exist because they shit out a dividend. A guarantee half of the failing pension funds in this country are jam packed with Papa Johns, Yum Brands, etc because they crap out a couple dimes for every share four times a year.



EDIT: AND because those crusty old boomers who actually read the prospectus want to see names on their local medium sized town main drag. "80 cents a year per share AND I can point at the sign every time I drive by?!? Up it to 4%!"

Not with pizzas, but I do own stock in companies I use in my 401k, like CVS and Mcdonalds.  I figure if I shop at a store or use a product enough buy some stock in it in addition to investing in ETF's/mutual funds.
