The Laziness Epidemic

Was starting to research this so I could blog about it, but the first article I ran across with Google was by Paul Krugman, who is one of the world's most notable lazy intellects and produces tirades that are specifically tailored to the tastes of the mentally lazy.  Notably, the article tries to argue that there isn't any rise in the lazy deadbeat culture due to excessive government subsidies.  I have my personal take on this since I must weekly gather the trash from around a local squatter who is young, healthy and lives entirely on government benefits.  But maybe I am wrong about Paul Krugman, since it takes a certain amount of moxie to argue the economic equivalent of the flat earth theory.  This is going to take some more work to prepare the real blog post, but I will just highlight this faltering effort and head off to bed.  Too lazy to stay up and finish it.  Goodnight!

Googling Diversity

This is just pouring petrol onto the fire now.  I would say that most of corporate America, including Wall Street, has been taken over by ultra left wing fanatics who are determined to impose their world view on everyone.  Except that we must also observe that those same fanatics would have no problem with a coder working for them who moonlighted as a ISIS recruiting Imam and advocated genuinely rude behavior towards women.  The elites' concerns are only with American conservative and/or Christian views, which they want to exterminate.

Other than that, I would say that from what I have read - ignoring the miss-characterizations and lies that were put out to justify the lynching - Damore's views are similar to my own:  I enjoy working with my women tech coworkers, and want to treat them with all respect.  At the same time, I believe that biological differences between males and females exist as the result of genetic design, so that women aren't as likely to pursue engineering careers and those who do gravitate towards certain disciplines.  In engineering, that means they tend towards materials science, rather than other specialties, but you will find females in all sub-disciplines of engineering.

I also think it is time to reverse the rhetoric.  It is those who would want to shame a woman for spending some time at home as a mother who are the real misogynists. Biological differences are real, and it is no good to suppress them, and even worse to falsely accuse, defame and punish males in order to achieve some imaginary equality of outcome for females.  Now I must worry about being fired too.

Back from Travel

Not sure what all happened, but the recent events reminded me of another account that someone had to give of his travels:

"And the Lord said to Satan, 'From where have you come?'  Satan answered the Lord and said, 'From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking up and down on it'."  - Job 1:7

So that is my answer.  Hopefully I can rest a while.
