Would Apple’s Tim Cook kiss Trump ass to avoid iPhone tariffs?

From CNBC:

AppleCEO_Ivanka

I’m sure this all about the children, right???

This is a powerful guy in the corporate world bending to the will of the Orange Pumpkinhead.  I’m happy to point out how he’s willing to compromise himself for profit.

I can only imagine a sharp razor for myself after a day with Ivanka Trump.

I’m thankful Hillary Clinton isn’t President (#fuckTrump)

Headline from CNN:

Hillary Clinton says Europe needs to curb migration to counter nationalism

I thought Hillary Clinton was smarter than this.

The answer to nationalism is to provide more economic opportunity for more people and to confront and shame people regarding whatever racist ideas they do or don’t have.

It’s a serious concession to racist ideas and racists to say the solution is to curb immigration.

Leave these ideas to Asshole Trump.

 

Big Tech fights for trans but not for plain ol’ women #Kavanaugh!

Headline from the Daily Beast:

Big Companies, Including Google and Facebook, to Fight Trump Over Anti-Transgender Policies

I guess being a woman isn’t hip enough for Facebook and Google to get involved.

I continue to be shocked at how arbitrary and frankly retarded the politics of these big tech companies are.  It’s just a mash of bullshit and arbitrary stands.

We love immigrants, we won’t stand up against Kavanaugh, we will will fight for trans people, we don’t give a fuck about black folks, we want a universal basic income but we don’t want to pay any taxes.

It’s just word salad.

No companies will be responsible to society as long as they’re legally responsible to shareholders!

From Salon here:

To counter this assault, we need socially responsible tech companies. What then in broad outlines would they look like?

Socially responsible tech companies would take the dictum “Do No Harm” as a primary operating principle governing every aspect of their business. This means not only doing everything to prevent physical harm from its technologies, but also preventing harm to mental health and well-being for individuals and society as a whole.

This looks so beautiful on paper but does not include the reality of shareholder capitalism.

Whatever you apply to Facebook in terms of ‘Do No Harm’ is going to apply to chemical companies, pharmaceutical companies, and the whole edifice of corporate power through shareholder ownership comes crumbling down.

Any changes that are forced onto Facebook, Google, and the Twatter are all going to unfold against the backdrop of political support for the idea of shareholder capitalism.

 

Before Head Saudi butchered opponent Kashoggi he toured corporate America!

From the Independent here:

Other notable meets outside of politics include Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Peter Thiel, Tim Cook of Apple and the CEOs of Microsoft, Boeing, Amazon, Uber, the Walt Disney Company and Lockheed Martin.

Of course, these American corporate giants care if this guy beheads his opponents in that it makes them look bad.

They don’t care if he kills hundreds of thousands of Yemenis in Yemen via starvation, bombing and targeted assassinations.  They care, only briefly, if it makes them look bad.

Otherwise, they want to get down with this prick and sell him all the shit they have to sell.  He even became an Amazon Prime customer!  And he got a new iPad when he swung through Cupertino!

Go Schodack, fight the Bald Vampire!

From here:

“We all have paid residential tax rates in this neighborhood. They come in with corporations, give them huge tax benefits, and screw everyone else who lives here and the water supply,” said Marci Brunner, a leader of the Birchwood Association with her husband Adam. “We are trying to protect the environment and the quality of life, not just for us but everyone in Schodack and the local areas that will be impacted by this.”

Let the Bald Vampire build his evil nest full of Chinese shit and crap somewhere else or better yet don’t build it at all.
