    This went far afield, didn't it. My point is (as many WW2 vets) that Patton was nowhere near the front line during ww2. He wasn't battle fatigued like our troops were.

    It's fkn easy to desire to start another war, one with Russia that was going to be far bloodier and costly than our assault on Germany - if you don't have empathy for your own troops, or have a good read on their availability for such a long drawn out war. The nation as a whole was ready for peace time. The whims of one nutcase, undisciplined General notwithstanding

    H2R, I respect your position, but as I stated, the vast majority of his troops would (and did) walk through walls for him.

    Seems like easy money for someone who was let go and doesn’t give a f**k.

    I saw an example of a Round Rock ISD interview for a curriculum position. It included questions about how the applicant was going to increase the diversity, equity, and inclusion of the schools he/she worked with. Bare in mind, there is a law in Texas against having a DEI system. They are ignoring it. All they had to do was hire a domestic abuser to make it happen.

    Other than Mary Bone and Danielle Weston, the RRISD Board may as well be the Berkeley City Council or the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. It's nothing but left-wing f**k-ups, and they're ********. They're not good people.

    I'm gonna guess that excludes C-level employees.

    Sounds like a civil lawsuit could be won. Make Gates pay for his evil.

    All of the ridiculous employment policies are coming under more scrutiny. The "no degree required" movement is staring to receive more scrutiny also. It was really just a DEI move ... since minorities don't have the same education attainment, we need to disregard education as a qualifier. Hiring managers aren't having it. They still choose people who've done the education work over the "warm body" approach.

    In link Mayo clinic wrote a disclaimer tweet saying it had not hired Jobs for Humanity nor approved it.

    Can I have some of that mediocrity?

    I googled the "mediocre white man" thing to see what that's about, because I've heard it several times in the last few years. Apparently, it's an anti-self-confidence thing. They don't like white men who aren't self-loathing weanies.

    Surprised Disney didn't just fill it with nine kids of African or Latino heritage.
