"When CEOs Play Politics, Shareholders Can Take Them to Court"
By interjecting their political views on social engineering instead of simply hiring and promoting people on the basis of their skills and accomplishments, GOOG is setting itself up for a lot of court time.
Don't be surprised if a class action law suit is filed by current and or ex employees who have been hurt by GOOG's diversity agenda.
GOOGL replaces FREE SPEECH with STIFLING GROUP THINK
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.

Ann Coulter: When Liberals Club People, It's with Love in Their Hearts
Apparently, as long as violent leftists label their victims "fascists," they are free to set fires, smash windows and beat civilians bloody.
Trump is the man !

FREE SPEECH IS NOW A RIGHT WING ISSUE . THE LEFT WINGERS ARE NOW OPPOSED TO FREE SPEECH .. if any group is given the right to occupy a space to represent their point of view, the opposing factions should not physically impede upon that right to express their viewpoint. In Charlottesville the police allowed the little demonstrators to block access to the park. This is why the right wingers had to force their way through lock arms to get into the park. This all the while anti-fa threw water And urine on The right wingers I don't like Nazis and white supremacists anymore than I like violent black lives matter and anti-fa . Extremists on all sides are as stupid as each other, and just as dangerous.
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.
GOOGFREES. VS GOOGOPS EX HARVARD PRES. SUMMERS WAS FORCED TO RESIGN AFTER STATING GENDER DIFFERENCE AFFINITIES , IN SCIENCE and tech He has Learned that even to mention that in Born differences Play a role in selecting candidates will result in losing one's livelihood. Let's fight against intellectual shaming by the alt left.
Freedom of expression is not allowed at Google only gender pay discrimination is allowed.
First Ma Bell. Next Google, then Facebook
Google is an evil bloodsucker....Sucks bloody ad money from all industry
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?
"Legal Experts Say That Fired Google Engineer Has Strong Case for Damages"
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?
AT $ 910 oops fake news are catching up with GOOG , for years they were paid to promote fake news , pump up stocks or target individuals or org across the globe
