Cruel and demeaning
But funny! And likely close to how it will go.
After meeting Kanye West, President-elect Trump will meet Google and other Silicon Valley leaders today. We've imagined how the conversation might go. RUSHED TRANSCRIPT TRUMP: So. Peter tells me you’re the smartest guys in America. How do you like the furniture? PAGE: Very nice Mr President Elect. TRUMP: Where’s the Russian …
Yeah, right like Brin and Shmidt will go into a meeting with Trump without a one foot thick folder of compromat.
The idea that Google will not leverage its access to information in a situation like this is interesting... to say the least... I suspect it was not just Podesta and the Clinton campaign to use gmail when they really should have considered if they should be doing it...
"Next time include the phrase 'Winter is coming'"
I predict a takedown notice from HBO's repti-, sorry, lawyers, is on its way over the pole even as we speak, and you, Nick, are at Ground Zero.
That said, if we say 'W****r is coming', one can substitute letters that describe Trump very well ....
Apparently his word salad is a good way to get followers... It doesn't say much, it seems to suggest he's on the same side as the listeners, and it lets listeners fill in the blanks with anything they want mentally, which will be something they want to hear but Trump didn't say.
It's not new. George W Bush was famous for mangling the language, and his enemies completely missed the point by calling him "dumb" because of it.
In the UK, Tony Blair was a leading exponent of the art. But I'll admit, Trump has taken it to another level.
Actually it does.
It will become more difficult for employers to run slave shops. Presently, they can do anything - nobody will risk being deported on 14 days notice. 60 days changes the picture quite a bit - the employers will have to both improve pay and hours which will make H1B slave labor less competitive.
> It will become more difficult for employers to run slave shops.
The threat of deportation is still there. The only thing that has changed is that H1-B slave jobs are now transferrable between sweatshops.
H1-B wants to change jobs? Great. Here's another job at the same exact slave pay rate. Don't like it? I'm sure Immigrations and Customs Enforcement would like to have a chat about that H1-B visa.
There is a way of fixing this, and it starts with cutting down the yearly number of H1-B's. But that is not going to happen anytime soon.
Don't forget that the tech companies all have anti-poaching "agreements" too - technically illegal but you try telling that a lawyer with only 60 days before you have to leave.
Frankly - having been an H1B employee in the US - they have you by the nuts and they know it.
.... for This whenever Also That and Altogether Something Else Quite Different and AI Beta
That was/is engagingly subversive, Andrew O. I bet Too Big To Fail Systems neither see nor comprehend what is coming to bury their elite executive administrations within the bullshit they pimp and pump.
Do you imagine Uncle Sam and ITs Cowboys being Able to Create and Lead the Future or is that a Bridge Building Exercise immeasurably too far beyond their abilities and facilities?
Pray tell ....... there are those prepared to hear and assist if they have the requisite capabilities. The recent past shenanigans would not suggest they be prime candidates for following.

Vlad: Nyet. We have photos of tiny Drumpf accessory (pockets check, winks) CNN, tonight at nine.
Drumpf: Oh jeeze ... hey, don't go yet, grab some pussy. Cromwell, go catch Blofeld.
