Thomas Sowell: Charlatans and Sheep

One of the many painful signs of the mindlessness of our times was a recent section of the Wall Street Journal, built around the theme “What’s Holding Women Back in the Workplace?”

Whenever some group is not equally represented in some institution or activity, the automatic response in some quarters is to assume that someone has prevented equality of outcomes.

    I’m reading his new book, right now; it is great, but I have to take small bites.

    Um, let’s see. They cry on the job. Are constantly eating cake. And they are out the door at exactly 4:30 each and every day.

      Oy vey.
      I worked at this milquetoast tech company that celebrated project milestones with cake.
      Fackin’ cake, I thought.
      You know, I’d be happiest with an incentive of bourbon and beef jerky.
      And start it at nine am.

        … and I fucking haaaaaaate potlucks.

        • One of the happiest consequences of the annihilation of all life consequent upon the arrival of SMOD will be the instant vaporization of women who organize potlucks.

          They will potluck no more.

          • El Martyachi

            SMOD is too much of a longshot. I’m hoping for a nuclear conflagration, hopefully preceded by a deluge of canola oil in Toronto’s case.

          • Doubter! SMOD will reward my fidelity. Come the fiery extinction of all existence I wouldn’t want to be in your shoes.

          I was forced to attend a few during my “wage slave” period. I never ate anything. I also dislike buffet service and do not partake. Black Forest cake is BORING and of the devil! 😉

          I know, and they always bring doesn’t look like what they say it is.
          ‘No, really, it’s salmon casserole.’
          If you say so.

  • Shebel

    They get pregnant and stop working. This is a big one.

    • infedel

      Yep — and they should because islam and third world are out populating us;but after the kids we have the brains to rejoin– better yet– let the banks and corporations not require two paychecks to survive while our taxes give invaders the money to procreate.

    • BillyHW

      They were never working in the first place. Maternity leave just means we no longer have to carry the dead weight.

  • Shebel

    If can get past the whining and whimpering then you are confronted with the demands and threats.
    Sorta like hiring a Minority.

  • El Martyachi

    We’re gonna start losing wars because of this fucking shit.

  • Liberal Progressive

    You are just making excuses.

    How many transexuals or people with Downs Syndrome do they employ?

    If they can’t tell you they are committing a Human Rights crime!

  • Frances

    Could it be that most women – and especially the hard-working ones – have taken a long hard look at what it takes to get to the “top” and have decided that they want neither the journey nor the end position.
