The Barack Obama Administration did a lot of very stupid things – in the pursuit of its very stupid Leftist ideology.
In pursuit of its very stupid Leftist ideology, the Obama Administration did a lot of very stupid things – that clearly contradicted the things they publicly said they were trying to accomplish.
Mostly because the Obama Administration was lying. They knew their Leftist ideology was exceedingly unpopular – so they had to incessantly lie while advancing it.
This past New Year’s Eve, we were violently reminded of one of the very many lying, Leftist messes the Obama Administration left behind.
Why are we having to deal with Iran’s well-funded Iraqi cat’s paw?
Because in the name of ending Iran’s nuclear ambitions – the Obama Administration gave Iran $151+ billion dollars.
“This money does not include a separate $1.7 billion payment to the government of Iran.”
“Under the President Obama’s disastrous Iran nuclear deal, $150 billion would go to a single regime that has been a state sponsor of terrorism for the entire 36 years of its existence.”
How’s that for very stupid Leftist policy?
And as we’re seeing even as I type – we’re STILL dealing with the ramifications of Obama’s Iranian idiocy.
Is this the only residual Obama dumbness? Were that it were so….
“Oracle filed a lawsuit against the Department of Labor (DOL) Wednesday, challenging an Obama-era decision that held Oracle had discriminated against women and minorities.”
The Obama Administration filed its lawsuit against Oracle – on January 17, 2017. If you’ll check your calendar, you’ll note that was a mere three days before Obama was sworn out of office. This in and of itself – is decidedly obnoxious.
And here we are nearly three years later – about to reelect Obama’s successor. And we’re STILL dealing with this facet of Obama Administration idiocy.
The content of the suit – is even more obnoxious than its calendar:
“’The Department of Labor is suing Oracle for alleged pay discrimination against women, African-Americans and Asians, as well as for favoring Asian employees for technical roles.’
“Did you get that? Barack Obama’s Labor Department sued Oracle for simultaneously discriminating against Asians – AND favoring Asians.”
Of course, we can always count on the Leftist media to defend Leftist idiocy in all of the very many places it trips over its own feet.
Did you get that? The Leftist media describes the Obama Administration self-contradictory idiocy on Asian hiring – as “complicated.”
Not self-contradictory. Not conflicted. Not confused. Not crazy. All of which are quite accurate.
The Leftist media describes Obama’s idiocy – as “complicated.”
Quite the contrary. The Obama Administration’s lawsuit against Oracle is simply stupid.
That is – if you understand the elementary concept of supply and demand.
“Asian-Americans make up half of the Bay Area’s technology workforce, and their double-digit employment gains came from jobs lost among white tech workers, according to an analysis by this newspaper of Census Bureau data released Thursday.”
Half of the Valley workforce is Asian. What percentage of the Valley’s general population is Asian?
So Asians are over-represented in the Valley workforce – by nearly 2-1. Which tells us two things.
One: It is inordinately difficult to argue that Oracle – or anyone else in the Valley – is discriminating against Asians.
Two: It is inordinately obvious that when supply is this high – demand gets really low.
So pay for the mass supply of Valley Asians looking for tech gigs – is going to be lower.
Oracle and the Valley can pay less for Asian employees – because there are so many Asians looking to be employees.
Oil prices have fallen precipitously – because (safe) supply has increased so dramatically.
Texas – being far safer than, say, Iran.
Bribing with hundreds of billions of dollars anti-America Iran mullahs is idiotic under any circumstances.
It has been rendered even more idiotic – by the Donald Trump Administration’s reversal of Obama’s anti-domestic-oil policies.
We now don’t need Iranian oil. So we are even freer to tell them to go pound sand.
Obama’s “racial discrimination” policies are rendered idiotic by reality. And math. And basic economics.
And like Obama’s Iran and oil policies – and oh-so-many others – his “racial discrimination” policies should be reversed.
It is very sad the nature of our massive bureaucracy leaves Obama’s ridiculous Oracle lawsuit shambling along – three years after we were freed from Obama.
It’s time for this nonsense to end.
