Grexit: Exchanges on the IT Problem Continue


I've already been over Louis Proyect's critical analysis of the chapter on the IT software problem in my new e-book. But in the comments on Proyect's post a significant dialogue occurred between two commenters at NC: Ben Johannson and Clive. Here I analyze and comment on that exchange.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Clinton Official Email - Mystique, Utterances and Dark Energy, Oh My!

Gov. Jerry Brown reached deep into his little bag of oratory to speak out in defense of pal-Hillary against the darkening and expanding scandal with her privately diverted and destroyed State Department emails. He came up with CrazyPants. Hillary might be wishing he had just kept quiet.

From the L.A. Times. Jerry thinks the "controversy" (LA Time so polite) is:

almost like a vampire ... [and HRC needs to] find a stake and put it right through the heart."

Patrick Murphy enabled the Benghazi witch hunt

Alan Grayson smacks Patrick Murphy over Benghazi

"Patrick Murphy voted to give the Tea Party Republicans who run the House of Representatives the power to subpoena Hillary Clinton's records, hold hearings and conduct a political witch hunt that will last through the presidential election," Grayson said in a statement. "I would like to know if Patrick Murphy is happy with what he has done, or if he now regrets that vote."

Trump's calvin ball


Donald Trump: The 14th Amendment Is Unconstitutional
Essentially Trump is saying I am a big rich man and the law means whatever I say it means. It is time to stop laughing and consider the possibility that this fascist could actually win. He has gone on record as saying that he will set mobs on anyone who heckles his campaign. He is a would be Mussolini. So many thought that Mussolini was a joke until the laughter stopped.

Washington, DC trip report

Last week I went down to Washington, D.C. to deliver a paper at a conference in the technical field where I worked, ten years or so and two or three careers ago, before the trash. The trip was solely an exercise in merit-making, since I doubt very much I'll get work in the field, but reconnecting with old friends was really great -- even if some of them did not recognize the older, greyer, and heavier me, nor I the (ditto) them -- and I got to have dinner with DCBlogger and letsgetitdone. Here are a few random reactions. Read more about Washington, DC trip report

Trump: gimme the nomination or else

That is essentially what his threat to run as an independent means. Gimme the nomination or I will arrange that no Republican can win.

All the regular rules do not apply. Read more about Trump: gimme the nomination or else

Stasi HR


The modern work environment was already becoming more than a bit Orwellian, with employees being electronically spied on by their bosses to ensure productivity, but now the corporate push for total information awareness of workers is hitting new levels of creepiness.

Scientist who went around proclaiming 27,000 species go extinct every year, can't/won't name a single one

To paraphrase Fox news, "Some scientists SAY that 25,000 - 50,000 species go extinct every year"

Consider: E.O. Wilson is an honorary board member of the Suzuki Foundation, who has claimed 27,000 species go extinct every year. Humorously (IMO), Wilson claims

"A good proxy for the rate of extinction is the rate of growth in energy used by the human population. In other words, extinction rates are increasing in step with the product of population growth times the growth in affluence."

UPDATED - #BlackLivesMatter Video of "Conversation" with Hillary Clinton Vaporized?

As of 50 minutes ago, per Tweeting by BlackLivesMatterBOS this supposed video will be shown live on the Rachel Maddow Show tonight. I don't watch TV, nor do I follow or listen to Maddow. But hopefully whatever is being released will soon be available on YouTube. This is all a bit precious, staged and MSM-friendly for a video made by a supposedly in-your-face "organic" activist group.
