Tech Founder: Middle America
Is Too ‘Violent, Stupid And
Racist’ For New Jobs

Daily Caller, by Robert Donachie

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/9/2017 12:49:51 PM

One Silicon Valley executive had a few choice words to describe Americans living in the heart of the nation, and they were not flattering. Melinda Byerley, MBA and founder of Timeshare CMO, a Silicon Valley-based tech start-up, tweeted out Saturday afternoon describing what middle America could do to “get more jobs in their area.” Byerley says that the first thing those in middle America need to realize is that “no educated person wants to live in a sh**hole with stupid people.” Particularly, in a “sh**hole” filled with people who are “violent, racist, and/or misogynistic.” In Byerley’s opinion, “big corporations,” do

Comments:
The arrogance and stupidity of sick morons like her is absolutely stunning. These people are so tedious. You note she doesn´t utter a peep about the murder and violence in Chicago. Who would want to live in that Democrat run sh**hole?? And they wonder why Trump won. He was the only one who spoke directly to the American people and not lie to them every single day like the criminal Clinton.

If she talks about not wanting to live in certain places, then what is she doing living on the LEFT coast? Or is she "thinking" in terms of Chicago as defining Middle America?

So says Melinda, a denizen of the Idiocracy called the ´left coast´. She must fall into that category of people that are so stupid, they think they are smart. And I´ll be certain not to invest any money in ´Timeshare CMO´ IPOs (should they ever be offered) as it likely won´t last long with a person like that running it.

She and others like her are the reason Trump won....selfish, sanctimonious and unbelievably arrogant. They turned off people who are actually the backbone of this country. Keep it up...it only helps us deplorables keep power.

If Melinda paid a little more attention to her surroundings when she steps out of her Uber, perhaps she would realize liberals are have turned San Fran into a “sh**hole”

San Fran has incredible city revenues due to the tech boom. INCREDIBLE. Yet more homeless, homeless sh!tt!ng on the street, open drug use, generalized filth are worse every time I go there. Meanwhile, middle/lower income types are forced out due to insane housing costs.The city has been run by ultralibs for decades, now stocked with limitless tax revenue, yet the city is become an open sewer.

She needs get her own house in order.

I grew up in Cupertino, now home of Apple computer, and after returning from the Army, I couldn´t get out of there fast enough. The home I grew up in was torn down to build a palace for some Silicon Valley elite with too much money.

As Melinda describes it, "a sh**hole with too many stupid people." It would take 2 hours to drive the 10 miles to work in the morning. After the first hour, you´re ready to start committing some Road Rage... but then, I´m just one of those violent, racist and misogynistic rural hicks. I haven´t been educated to be tolerant and diverse like Ms. Byerley.

I would love for Mexican Brown people to thrive, in their own country. If they´re Americans, I want them to thrive no matter what their color. I´ll bet the brown people she wants to thrive are her gardener, her maid, her cook, her nanny...

Obamacare replacement to cost less
but cover 14 million fewer people
Washington Examiner, by Robert King & Paige Winfield Cunningham    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/13/2017 4:42:50     Post Reply
The Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare would result in 14 million more people without health coverage next year but reduce federal spending by $337 billion compared to current law, according to an estimate Monday from Congress´ official scorekeeper. About 24 million people would lose coverage over the next decade under the American Health Care Act, the Congressional Budget Office said Monday. But the plan would reduce taxes by $883 billion over the next decade. The highly anticipated estimate holds major bearing on the task before President Trump and Republican House leaders, who are trying to sell their plan

Senate Democrats announced a bill Monday to revoke President Trump’s latest extreme vetting executive order, saying it’s discriminatory and counterproductive to the country’s efforts to influence allies. Led by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, the new bill is succinct — it cancels the March 6 order that suspends the refugee program and puts a 90-day halt on most admissions from six Middle East and African countries. “President Trump’s discriminatory executive order isn’t about strengthening our national security. It’s a transparent effort to fulfill his campaign promise to implement a ‘Muslim Ban,’” Mrs. Feinstein said in a

WASHINGTON — Concerned by the shortage of government experience and early missteps by Trump administration officials —including President Trump — a group of lawyers is launching a watchdog organization that will seek to track the administration´s ethics and expose potential conflicts, fraud or other wrongdoing. The organization, “American Oversight,” which says it is nonpartisan despite some of its founders having deep ties to Democrats, will focus on prying loose documents through public records requests and lawsuits under the Freedom of Information Act.

Faced with students who won´t buy lunches low in salt and sugar and jacked up with bland-tasting grains, the nation´s 54,000 school cafeteria workers are urging Washington to junk health-focused rules pushed by former first lady Michelle Obama. Feeling that they have an ally on their side in the Trump administration, their lobby group, the School Nutrition Association, plans to press for less-strict restrictions on ingredients that taste good. The reason is simple: Studies show that public school students aren´t eating what cafeterias are serving, turning many operations into money-losers.

One juicy morsel they´d like to snap up is a bigger piece of the e-commerce pie. They´re asking Congress to pass a law to help them pocket sales taxes on goods their residents buy online from out-of-state businesses. At first blush, that may sound reasonable.

Sherman reports, “Sources told me that that prosecutors have been offering witnesses immunity to testify before a federal grand jury that’s already been impaneled.” Last month, an attorney for former Fox News personality Andrea Tantaros said in court, as first reported

He refused to resign, setting up a public showdown with the Trump administration. A day later, he announced via Twitter that he had been fired. Then on Sunday, he tweeted a suggestion that his firing had something to do with an effort to squash an investigation.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Sunday went on a tweetstorm against President Trump a day after he fired a top federal prosecutor in New York. Warren suggested that Preet Bharara was fired because he "had authority over Trump Tower." "Preet Bharara had authority over Trump Tower.

New York education officials are poised to scrap a test designed to measure the reading and writing skills of people trying to become teachers, in part because an outsized percentage of black and Hispanic candidates were failing it. The state Board of Regents on Monday is expected Monday to adopt a task force´s recommendation of eliminating the literacy exam, known as the Academic Literacy Skills Test. Backers of the test say eliminating it could put weak teachers in classrooms. Critics of the examination said it is redundant and a poor predictor of who will succeed as a teacher. "We want

Frightened immigrants are creeping into Canada through a quiet border town in northeast New York to escape Donald Trump. The families are fleeing through the town of Champlain which shares a border with Quebec. They make their crossing on Roxham Road which leads them directly towards the village of Hemmingford and in to the path of Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers who take them to immigration offices where they can apply for asylum. Since Donald Trump tried to implement a controversial travel ban stopping citizens from Muslim majority countries from entering the US, foot traffic on the road has increased.

Connecticut State Sen. Ted Kennedy Jr. (D-Branford) — son of former U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) — wants to give state government control over what happens to citizens’ organs after they die. Kennedy recently introduced SB 750, which would automatically enroll Connecticut’s citizens in the organ donation program.
