    Whether valid or not, Damore stepped over the line with his genetic thesis about woman engineers. However, he raised a critical issue of how the Neoliberals are forcing their diversity BS down our throats. What started out as as valid issue has been turned into Orwellian group think nightmare by the storm troopers of the far left.

    The intent of the original equal opportunity legislation was just that, equal opportunity not forced equal outcomes. Diversity in many ways is no better than the discrimination against blacks during the 1960s. Yet, the Neoliberal press, many of whom have benefited from the diversity dogma, have become the front men for the Neoliberal Nazis, who seek to gain advantages not based on their qualifications, but rather because they are the self proclaimed victims of discrimination that they feel is rampant in our society.

    Don't burst the militant feminist bubble, but the reason women only represent 20% of the engineering staff is because they only represent 20% of the students enrolled in the engineering colleges, duh! I worked as a physicist and manager for many years in Silicon Valley and elsewhere and I can tell you that companies do everything they can to hire and promote women and miniorities.

    However to to target white, male engineers for dismissal so a firm can hire women and and people of color is blantent discrimination

    Yet to shame people into silence who raise this issue goes against the precepts of our constitution and raises the aura of the Orwellian groupthink nightmare.

    James Damore has backed up his more politically incorrect views with hard science (via the links in his memo). This is more than enough reason why he's justified in stating his views, even if it risks illogical people morphing scientifically proven groups' tendencies (e.g. women tend to be more interested in people than men are) into stereotypes.

    He takes pains to state that he's talking about distributions of traits among groups, and not about any single person (who may well be an exception, which would be fine). His memo actually contains a diagram of two OVERLAPPING bell-shaped curves, to make this point as clear as it can possibly be made.

    Despite today's bump, I am guessing the Summer blues will continue. At 930 the stock is cheap. Because its yearly earnings will be 40 or so. Even at 25 PE thats 800+150 dollars cash=950. Fair market value for GOOG will be 1050 or so. Because of risks it is valued at 930. As the earnings come closer, the risks seem lower and the hope of an extensive beat rises. So the price goes up.

    What other companies might benefit from Google's Gestapo tactics?

    I have moved to Duckduckgo and dogpile for search engines, but are there companies that will benefit
    monetarily if people look for alternatives to Google?

    GOOG was already found guilty (in the court of public opinion) of suppressing anti Clinton search results in the last election. Don't think their hate fueled bias won't lead the liberal progressive Democrat fascists to knife a white male employee in the belly and throw him to the sharks. Opposing opinions are not tolerated at Google! I thought Google had all the smart people?

    I'm not an Alphabet shareholder, but if I were, I'd be pretty worried right now.

    Maybe time to get out before this stuff starts to actually affect the company's financial performance.

    It appears that the inmates are now running the asylum over there.

    "Google CEO cancels town hall event about diversity shortly before it was to begin because some employees 'expressed concerns for their safety.'" ???????

    The place has become The Evergreen State College.

    If men and women are equal then explain why when a man gets kicked in the nuts he never wants that experience again. Yet a woman has a baby and says that was fun I think I will have another. Yes, women are stronger than men when it comes to pain!

    How about google, forcing its employees to goose step with the modern neo liberals. remember when liberals said and wrote horrible things, but their words were protected by the constitution. be careful. now its firing employees. soon it will be a swat team breaking down your door at 3:00 am, all because you don't think the way they want you to. Land of the Free. No. we are losing our freedom every day to these horrible people. These are the real deplorables.

    GOOGOPS THE NEW BIG BROTHER !
    GOOGFREES VERSUS GOOGOPS ..THE BATTLE RAGES!!
    Liberal used to mean freedom . What happened ?
    Did PC invade free speech ? Through a misconception ,
    freedom was thought to be forwarded by protecting minority's
    From any and all adversity . Now, 50% of the population
    Meaning women are included in being a minority.
    Through SPIN, discrimination became synonymous with
    Prejudice.
    Judgment became A negative word, when
    Judgment is an intelligent faculty.
    Opinions are now For a--holes instead of A person's
    thoughts they have Formed to express themselves.
    Hear no evil, speak no evil see no evil says
    The GOOGOPS THE NEW BIG BROTHER
