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

Daily Caller, by Robert Donachie

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?

What a shame she doesn´t want to live in rural America....s/o
I think we will continue with our backwards ways if it prevents folks like her from moving anywhere near us.
She can keep her urban hellhole and all the taxes and regulations of her Dem run state.

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...

Fellow refugees say at least 140 Somalis have been settled in the United States after being blocked for days by President Donald Trump´s ban on travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries. The refugees spoke on condition of anonymity because of concerns about their safety. They remain at the world´s largest refugee camp, Dadaab, which hosts more than 200,000 Somalis. The group of 140 which had been vetted by U.S. authorities had been on the brink of traveling to the United States, but Trump´s ban left them in limbo at a transit camp in Kenya´s capital, Nairobi.

California Democrats made a surprise move late Friday to foil President Trump’s promise to repeal ObamaCare—by introducing a stand-alone, single-payer healthcare system in California. The Mercury News reported that two California lawmakers Friday introduced legislation to replace private insurance with a government-run health care system covering all 38 million Californians—including its undocumented residents. “We’ve reached this pivotal moment,” Sen. Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens), told the Mercury News in an interview Friday, “and I thought to myself: `Look, now more than ever is the time to talk about universal health care.’” The article went on to report that the proposal dubbed the ‘Healthy California

In a preview of his Meet the Press interview tomorrow, McCain told Chuck Todd that the free press is very important to American democracy. “I hate the press. I hate you especially,” he joked. “But the fact is, we need you. We need a free press.” Without a free and adversarial press, McCain said, Americans would lose their liberties and “that’s how dictators

SAN FRANCISCO — Mark Zuckerberg says Facebook will move beyond connecting family and friends to building "social infrastructure" critical to bringing people together in a "global community." In a nearly 5,800-word letter to Facebook users published on his Facebook page, Zuckerberg laid out his vision of what kind of world he believes Facebook can help create as it pushes back against a growing tide of anti-globalization sentiment. "Progress now requires humanity coming together not just as cities or nations, but also as a global community," Zuckerberg wrote.

Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, the firebrand Islamist cleric behind the first attempt to bring down the World Trade Center, has died in federal prison. He was 78. Abdel-Rahman, an Egyptian radical who maintained a global following even while imprisoned for more than two decades, died Saturday at Butner Federal Medical Center in North Carolina, where he was serving a life sentence, Reuters reported. Abdel-Rahman was convicted in 1995 of plotting terror attacks throughout New York City, including the World Trade Center and the United Nations. His son Ammar told Reuters that his family had received a phone call from a U.S. representative

Historians have ranked Barack Obama the 12th best president of all time, the highest rated since President Ronald Reagan, in a new C-SPAN survey released Friday. Less than a month after exiting the White House, Obama received high marks from presidential historians for his pursuit of "equal justice for all" and for his commanding "moral authority," ranking third and seventh among all former presidents in each respective category. The 44th president also cracked a top 10 ranking for his "economic management" and public persuasion. The former president´s tenure earned its lowest marks for the relationship between the presidency and Congress,

This weekend in Atlanta, theatergoers can see not only Eve Ensler’s Vagina Monologues but also The MANologues, a new performance about “toxic masculinity.” “The MANologues will explore themes such as masculinity, white male privilege, everyday sexism, war, patriarchy, socialization to gender and race, intersectionality, bystander intervention, allyship, PTSD, porn addiction, mansplaining, police brutality, and more,” according to Atlanta’s Creative Loafing. HuMAN UP, an “intersectional feminist” organization focused on gender-based violence and men, is producing the performance along with the Atlanta chapter of One Billion Rising, which was founded by the Vagina Monologues author. Once hailed as a feminist masterpiece, the

A Yale student group has waged a war on the university fraternities and will use Title IX to force them into admitting women—while letting female-only sororities off the hook. Engender, a group led by students of Yale, claims it will lobby the university—citing Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on gender, and internal Yale policies against discrimination—to issue sanctions against male-only fraternities. Will McGrew, a co-director of the organization, told Yale News that it’s a “logical next step” to approach the Yale administration “because all of these organizations fall under the purview of Yale legally, either because they are registered

Activists in Arizona are rattled over a new bill brought before the state Senate that would dish out harsher sentences for undocumented immigrants compared to U.S. citizens, according to AZfamily.com. The bill under consideration, SB1279, will also make it impossible for undocumented felons to be released early on parole. The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona stressed in an email Monday that individuals should voice concerns to their state senators, who are not expected to vote on the new measure until next week. In the meantime, the ACLU is devoting its time to convince politicians to turn down the proposal.

John McCain is increasingly mad as hell about President Trump. And on Friday, he went after Trump — hard. During a speech at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, the Republican senator from Arizona delivered a pointed and striking point-by-point takedown of Trump´s worldview and brand of nationalism. McCain didn´t mention Trump´s name once, but he didn´t have to. And even considering the two men´s up-and-down history and the terrible things Trump has said about McCain, it was a striking display from a senior leader of a party when it comes to a president of the same party. In his speech, McCain suggested

Senator John McCain has emerged as one of the leading Republican voices pushing back against President Trump, and he had some tough words in response to Trump’s tweet calling the media the “enemy” of the American people.

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is stuck in his own skull. He’s unreachable.“He lives inside his head, where he runs the same continuous loop of conflict with people he turns into enemies for the purposes of his psychodrama,” says Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio. Because Trump holds Thor’s hammer, with its notably short handle, we must keep trying to figure out his strange, perverse, aggrieved style of reasoning. So we’re stuck in Trump’s head with him.It’s a very cluttered place to be, a fine-tuned machine spewing a torrent of chaos, cruelty, confusion, farce and transfixing craziness.
