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.
I wish that she loses everything she has, house, money, business, health insurance and become homeless. Then, let´s see if she is now violent, stupid and racist. Oh, I cannot tell you how mad they make me.
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.
I am with #7. I don´t want people like her moving to my middle America town. I actually live in Georgia but she means every state that voted for Trump.
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.
Does this person have any idea of the sh*t storm that her tween has stirred up. Not to mention a revelation of the depth of her own closed minded biases. Talk about projection of true hatred. I could see her happily setting up or at least endorsing lethal re-education camps with a sign over the gate saying "work makes you free".
It works to our advantage to have liberals all jammed together into slender pieces of land, surrounded by ‘scary’ red territory. They’ll never regain the House, and never win the electoral college that way.
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.
watch out Texans!!! California´s moving to your state. You might say "Oh good." Nothing good happens when they migrate to another state. Trying to escape "the state (CA)" brings chaos and those like-minded bigots, the author of this article being one. Being a proud deplorable I say phie on the dog´s mother for her vicious assumptions of our fellow Americans. May 10k fleas invade every hairy spot on her body.
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...
Shhhhhhh... don´t ANYbody tell Mel that we´re perfectly happy here in the *&%$holes of America. I wouldn´t want her/it/ze/zur/ whatever, or any of her cohorts to ever remotely consider moving to my town. As prior posters have stated, the places these people consider ideal are the true *&%$holes of this country.
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
Opposition is mounting on Capitol Hill and in conservative foreign policy circles over Defense Secretary James Mattis´s efforts to hire a former Obama administration official who lobbied in favor of engagement with the Muslim Brotherhood and spearheaded efforts to criticize Israeli counter-terrorism efforts, according to multiple sources close to the Trump administration. (Snip) Multiple sources on Capitol Hill and those close to the Trump foreign policy teams are voicing concerns about the pick, warning that Patterson would seek to continue some of the former Obama administration´s most controversial foreign policies, such as conducting outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood. Patterson, who
Snoop Dogg has never shied away from making political statements, and with Donald Trump currently President of the United States, the rapper has some thoughts he wants to share. For the music video ‘Lavender,’ a collaboration with BADBADNOTGOOD featuring Kaytranada, Trump is depicted as a clown who - at the video’s climax - gets held up at gunpoint. "The whole world is clownin’ around, and [Jesse Wellens, the director´s] concept is so right on point with the art direction and the reality, because if you really look at some of these mother*****, they are clowns,” he told Billboard of the
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, is among the conservatives criticizing the Republicans´ repeal-and-replace bill, saying it is “not a repeal of Obamacare.” Speaking on Fox News’s “America’s News Headquarters” on Saturday, Brooks said “Well, let’s be clear by way of background, we are being asked to vote for the largest Republican welfare plan in the history of the Republican Party. That should be a hard swallow and a hard sell. We’ll see how it plays out. “To get my support, we have to keep our commitments to the American people. We promised that we were going
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
An Arlington, Va., woman allegedly falsified welfare applications to receive more than $100,000 in benefits while her husband raked in $1.5 million salary. Police say Helen Agbapuruonwu, mother of four, collected food stamps and Medicaid benefits from 2010 to 2016, while here husband, Fidelis Agbapuruonwu, was earning $1.5 million as a lawyer in Washington, D.C., NBC News 4 reports. Helen Agbapuruonwu “fraudulently obtained public assistance in excess of $100,000 under false pretenses” police allege, and she has been charged “with felony welfare fraud and document forgery,” according to a police report. Fidelis Agbapuruonwu, who immigrated to the U.S. from Nigeria
Dinesh D’Souza cheered the firing of U.S. attorney, Preet Bharara on Saturday. Today, he appeared on Fox & Friends and called him a ‘ruthless and deceitful guy’ who politically prosecuted him for being a conservative. "D’Souza: “…He (Preet Bharara) is a ruthless and a very deceitful guy. The first thing that’s highlighted inside my case file is ‘I’m a conservative’. This should be completely irrelevant in the decision whether to prosecute me. It should be beside the point. But of course in Bharara’s case it was the point. This was a political prosecution conducted by Bharara as a henchman for the
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. Regardless of what they uncover, such efforts could haunt the administration much the way similar actions by conservative
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. While the school districts can opt out, doing so results
All this talk about "draining the swamp" has the alligators worried. And some of the most aggressive gators in Washington, D.C., are actually state governments: they´re perpetually hungry for more tax revenue to fuel their burgeoning bureaucracies back home. 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. But requiring businesses in one state to collect and remit taxes to another state amounts to
A group of activists vandalized one of President Donald Trump’s golf courses Sunday morning because of the president’s “blatant disregard” for the environment. The group of anonymous demonstrators sneaked into the Trump National Gold Club in California and etched a seemingly incoherent message into one of the course’s greens. Golf Digest ranked the 18-hole, 7,300-yard course the 43rd best course in California. (Snip) “Repurposing what was once a beautiful stretch of land into a playground for the privileged is an environmental crime in its own right,” the activist added, on the condition of anonymity. Vandals have targeted Trump properties in
Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after he refused to resign, was probing whether Fox News executives illegally obtained reporters’ phone records, and committed fraud by hiding financial payments to some women who accused former CEO Roger Ailes of sexual harassment, according to a report by New York Magazine reporter Gabriel Sherman. 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
Former U.S. attorney Preet Bharara Sunday implied that he was fired by President Trump in order to kill an investigation. Bharara, whose district encompassed Manhattan, was one of 46 U.S. attorneys across the country who had been asked by the Trump administration to resign Friday afternoon. 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. John McCain predicted Sunday that the public would learn more about the relationship between President Donald Trump´s 2016 presidential campaign and the Russian government. In an interview on CNN´s "State of the Union," the Arizona Republican said there were "a lot of things about our relations with Russia that trouble me a lot." He cited the removal of a provision in the 2016 Republican party platform that supported sending lethal weapons to Ukraine, a move that was "not the will of most Republicans." "There´s a lot of aspects of this whole relationship with Russia and Vladimir Putin that requires further scrutiny.
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. [Trump] called him directly, breaching protocol. 24 hrs later he was asked to resign," Warren tweeted, referring to Trump´s reported phone call to the attorney Thursday, which broke rules prohibiting sitting U.S. attorneys from speaking with the president. (Tweets) Bharara was one of 46 U.S. attorneys across the country who had been asked by the
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
US Attorney Preet Bharara’s shocking termination on Saturday immediately launched calls for the crusading prosecutor to seek elected office. “Sky’s the limit for him. Democrats are desperately searching for a hero right now and he’s smartly stepped into that void,” said Lis Smith, a Democratic consultant. “Hard to see much in the way of downsides in this fight.” Bharara’s checks off every box as an attractive candidate throughout the region – as a slayer of corrupt pols on both sides of the aisle. And having your walking papers handed by President Trump also doesn’t hurt in the solidly blue New
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.
Former Democratic U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Sunday in one of his first major speeches since leaving office this year that he would have liked to have been the U.S. president who ended cancer as we know it. Biden, whose son Beau died from brain cancer in 2015, delivered an emotional speech at the South by Southwest technology summit in Austin, Texas, about continuing the work he led under former Democratic President Barack Obama in the so-called "Cancer Moonshot," an initiative aimed at speeding up research into new cancer therapies. He spoke of the need for prevention, research
President Trump’s budget proposal this week would shake the federal government to its core if enacted, culling back numerous programs and expediting a historic contraction of the federal workforce. This would be the first time the government has executed cuts of this magnitude — and all at once — since the drawdown following World War II, economists and budget analysts said. The spending budget Trump is set to release Thursday will offer the clearest snapshot of his vision for the size and role of government. Aides say that the president sees a new Washington emerging from the budget process, one that prioritizes
Students from one Iowan high school recently apologized to the principal of another Iowan high school when people found their choice of red, white and blue attire offensive. Supporters of the Des Moines North High School basketball team, many of whose players are from refugee families, were offended when fans of Valley High School’s basketball team wore red, white and blue last week, The College Fix reports. “This is an example of BLATANT racism,” said Ty Leggett, a Valley High School alum, on the Valley High School – WDMCS Facebook page. “ALL participating should have been pulled and banned from
American Bandstand hid the fact that many of its teenage dancers were gay, former stars of the show claim. Arlene Sullivan, now 74, is among them. Despite forming an on-screen partnership with Kenny Rossi, Sullivan knew she was a lesbian and ´came to terms´ with it with the support of co-stars. Many of the male dancers, some of whom were just 14, were also sleeping with each other but producers including Dick Clark were ´determined´ to keep it a secret. The dance hall show was a household favorite in the 1950s and 60s. Sullivan appeared on it between 1956 and
Sean Spicer was confronted while shopping in an Apple Store on Saturday by a woman who filmed the encounter in which she called President Donald Trump a ´fascist´ and accused the White House press secretary of racism. Shree Chauhan, a 33-year-old Indian-American woman who lives in Washington, DC, works for Parents in Partnership, a nonprofit that encourages parents to take a greater role in their children´s education. Chauhan posted the video in which she walks up to Spicer and begins harassing him as he shops. She begins by asking Spicer: ´How does it feel to work for a fascist?´ Spicer responds:
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. [snip] “If people want to donate their organs after death, I have no problem with that at all, but it should not be coercive in any way,” state Sen. Len Suzio (R-Meriden) told the local Connecticut newspaper The Record-Journal. As is the case in most states, citizens currently must choose to opt
