Another incredibly thoughtful essay from Jim Wright.
If you go back and look at some of the arrests that were made, I can about say probably 70 percent of those had out-of-state IDs." -- Todd Walther, spokesman for the North Carolina Fraternal Order of Police, describing those...

Even though, the “Christian concepts typically consisted of the closing line, such as ‘In Jesus’ name. Amen,’ ” the court finds that “these are not really Christian prayers.” The majority simply rejects that notion that multiple references to such Christian concepts might “convey the appearance of an official preference for Christianity.” ❞
As the United States marches forward in its quest to restore its former greatness, it should surprise nobody that government sponsored Christian prayer ...

// Every time I see officers surrounding an individual who needs protection, I will interfere. Every fucking time. I will interfere like a middle-eastern mother-in-law. It is my duty as a physician. As a human. It is my duty to hold those people responsible for their actions. I can take a beating, thank-you. I will never ever ever ever walk by silently. Ever, fuckers. Pick on schizophrenics, you are picking on me. //

Between 2003 and 2009, the Bush White House “lost” 22 million emails. ... Like HClinton and her predecessor Colin Powell, the Bush White House used a private email server. Only the Bush administration failed to store vastly more of its emails, as required by law, and then refused to comply with a congressional subpoena seeking some of them. “It’s about as amazing a double standard as you can get,” says Eric Boehlert, who works with the pro-Clinton group Media Matters.

“If you look at the Bush emails, he was a sitting president, and 95 percent of his chief advisers’ emails were on a private email system set up by the RNC. Imagine if for the last year and a half we had been talking about Hillary Clinton’s emails set up on a private DNC server?”
http://www.newsweek.com/2016/09/23/george-w-bush-white-house-lost-22-million-emails-497373.html

“Bush administration emails could have aided a special prosecutor’s investigation into a White House effort to discredit a diplomat who disagreed with the administration’s fabricated Iraq WMD evidence by outing his CIA agent wife, Plame. Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, who was brought in to investigate that case, said in 2006 that he believed some potentially relevant emails sent by aides in Cheney's office were in the administration's system but he couldn’t get them.” The supposedly lost emails also prevented Congress from fully investigating, in 2007, the politically motivated firing of nine U.S. attorneys. When the Democrat-led Senate Judiciary Committee subpoenaed related emails, Bush’s attorney general, Alberto Gonzalez, said many were inaccessible or lost on a nongovernmental private server run by the RNC.

All of which adds up to one word describing those who now screech at Hillary Clinton for mistakes that were literally… and I mean “literally” in the most literal sense – minuscule by comparison. What is that one word?

Hypocrites.
The outrage and press coverage was nothing compared with that surrounding Hillary Clinton’s emails.

When mainstream journalists talk to me, they want to know, “What really happened?” Whereas young people are looking back and saying, “Wow, 50 years ago you fed people? Forty-five years ago you created schools that were student-centered and community-based? You had clinics? You had bus-to-prison programs that were free? How did you do that without social media?” I love those conversations, because I feel that young people are convincing themselves that they can do the same thing. After all, the median age of party members was 19 years old.

Our community-survival programs helped people to see how communities could be transformed by seeing it in their own lives, and then they would want to support that which transformed them. That’s exactly what happened. All the community-survival programs were supported by volunteers from the community, not just party members. Their social understanding grew when their lives were changed without any strings attached. We did everything we did so that people would feel empowered to make changes in the world they live in, and then go beyond that smaller circle to the larger one and develop a global understanding. I saw this with my own eyes.
Fifty years later, four women who helped build the party look back on the less-attention-grabbing part of its history.

I'm a little disturbed that 35 is considered an Old Geek, but cool that this exists....
 
Someone set this site up to share listings for companies who aren't interested in discriminating against experience.

Old Geek Jobs is the best place to find and list tech jobs that actively encourage Old Geeks (35, 45, 55 and beyond) to apply. The companies below look forward to your application no matter how old you are. Follow us on Twitter @oldgeekjobs

I own 'old' at 35; the old that is strong does not wither.

Definitely worried, though, at taking entry EE jobs at 36 or 37...

The real Skittles question is "Is my life more important than that of thousands of refugees?"

If you're so terrified of the world that you'd condemn others to poverty, war, and death rather than take any risks. By all means, go lock yourself in your house with your guns. I'll be out on the street greeting our new neighbors.

If DWB (driving while black) is a crime, then apparently SWB (stalled while black) is a capital offense.
