Diversity Thursday

From A to OOO - your TAD dollars at work.

Just so you know the complete intellectual disconnect the Diversity Bullies have and the fact that they really don't believe what they say - check out the bold; really? All? ..... and snicker with me what comes after JJJ ....

... and yes, I am quoting the whole message, just to share the pain. You are also required to play, "find the white male" game with me. Nothing starts the AM better than a good dose of self-hating, patronizing, eunuchesque asshattery.

Interesting post and message.

Oddly enough, the only people I had working for me interested enough in this sort of thing was Syneeda Penland.  The rest little cared about outstanding distinction based on the color of their skin.

I'm sure the XO's of LCS 1 and 3 (or was that 2, for some reason I find it hard to keep that straight) will get right on this. Being "hybrid sailors" they can whip this right out.  They have so much available time, manned the way they are.

LT B said...

It would give them something to rant about to take the spotlight off of their ethically iffy financial concerns in the news.

Great ctach.  The guys in my office (one of whom is a black guy) snorted hard!

Salty Gator said...

It's a good thing that we are so awesome at everything else, or I would have to question our priorities.  Honestly though, this all makes sense to me. The navy is always 30 years behind the power curve.  Take, for example, NMCI.  Or AEGIS.  Or LEAN/Six Sigma?  Total Quality Management?  Polyester uniforms?

I don't know about you, but I think that it is time for senior navy leadership to lay down and fossilize.

kmadams85 said...

So let's see ... 67 events ... let's say 750 commands ... 20% of commands send a rep to each event ==> 10,050 event attendees

$150 for a hotel ... $500 for a round trip plane ticket ... $100 meals and incidentals ... $500 registration fee ==> $1,250 to attend

10,050 events * $1,250 per event = $12.6 million dollars.

Exactly HOW are we gonna pay for this?  Do we expect it to accrue more than $12.6 million in benefit?  Change the assumptions on attendance level and the question remains the same.  Poke at the assumptions on individual event cost and they'll probably increase.

Oh, and that Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing?  Sold out, sorry.

Those bastards! The gall of them reaching out to communities that might not know what careers in the Navy can do for them!

Dear Diarrhea of the Keyboard:  you missed the point, as often you do.  Apparently jobs like engineering and flying and computer skills are broken down by the colors of the rainbow in your world.  You see nothing divisive or patronizing or exclusionary in this?

Your pet unicorn has lou stoolz too.  Pretty murky rainbow it's emitting too.

Phib, you owe me a new keyboard, by the way.

Hey, they missed October.  It's European-American Heritage Month.  I live in a "minority-majority" state, so that makes me a minority, and now I'm an aggreved minority with this thoughtlessness.

What about the white male Lutheran/Jewish Financial accountants?

Wow.  That takes the cake today.  We are all laughing here at that one...

LT B said...

My friend was at the bar last year watching the LSU game and when the pitcher threw his third strike-out, a black lady at the bar got incensed that they were letting the KKK hang their signs like that.  Some people see what they want and are just aching to be offended.

FCC said...

I always thought it should be July... the month named after Julius Caesar (the betrayed emperor who brought order); and the one that brings us the MLB All Star Game, Independence Day, Bastille Day, Battle of the Boyne ... and Harry Potter's birthday.

Andrew said...

DB, I can actually see a point to Mr. Stoolz' post. You see a goodly portion of those events are simply hosted by major science and engineering associations and societies, for instance ASME's international convention and congress. Unfortunately, none of the events listed that I could see were youth-centric or youth friendly. Most of those organizations require Bachelors of Science degrees which means the kiddies are left out.

If they really wanted to reach out to today's youth, they'd mount a better ad campaign (this is good up until the tagline) and focus on ASME/SAE/etc.-sponsored youth engineering events, camps, and competitions. That's the way I'd do it; just my $0.02.

John said...

Like LT B, I too wondered about the glaring discrimination exhibited against the left handed Lithuanian lesbians! 

Unless, Lori [redacted] is a representative of said discriminated agasint minority.  After all, everyone in that office is bound to be a "twofer". 

In fact, with so many people named "[redacted]" this certainly sounds like a very inbred bunch.  Perhaps that explains the low IQs which precludes their seeing that all their work is a total waste of time and resources adding nothing to readiness to fight and win wars at sea. 

That does not explain the stupidity or cowardice that their superiors exhibit in perpetuating this entire office and their waste of resources.  Theya re as useless as retaining a BUSHIPS Office of Sail Development, or the NAVAIR helium reserves for blimps.  When the need has passed, or the mission is accomplished, so shut stuff down when it is no longer a priority.

I see a lot of racial niche organizations, especially hispanic ones. If these keep blossoming up, not only the USN but the entire country is going to be torn up.

When I was a student, we had a couple of blacks and some Moroccans in our classes, and even a Vietnamese. We thought absolutely nothing - NOTHING - of it, they were just 'some of the guys'. Just like that. We noticed the difference in skin colour like we noticed that someone had blond hair or wore glasses.

It's actually these diversity bullies that are pushing a huge race flag in your face who are creating suspicion among people of different colours.

I'm just going to start buying keyboards in bulk.  Between application of extreme percussive maintenance procedures on hand, and coffee spews on the other, they just don't last very long after a DivThurs post.

If Lori [redacted] is a representative member, she can't tell anyone and we can't ask, but I bet she's a hit in female berthing though.  Ya know, on that couch that gets special attention.  Women on subs will workout just fine, I'm sure.

Всем привет! Нахожусь на 14-ой неделе берем-ти, всё протекает нормально (т-т-т), сегодня пришли результаты TORCH-анализа, нашли уреаплазму 10 в 3 степени. Насколько я знаю, это некритично. Я лечусь от неё уже кучу времени. То возникала, то исчезала. Никаких неудобств и проявлений не было. Мой гинеколог тогда мне сказала, что можно и не лечить, всё точно еще она будет возникать при пониженном иммунитете. Берем-ть незапланированная, но желанная, - даже не думала, что уреа нужно прям резко пролечить. В ЖК сегодня другой врач мне назначил воспринимать вильпрофен совместно с мужем с 15-ой недели. Я пила его в свое время, довольно дурно перенесла. Сейчас боюсь пить его. Сказала о своих опасениях врачу, имеет ли резон её лечить, раз я с ней всю жизнь и не особо страшно всё, кроме всего прочего имеют все шансы с почками трудности возникнуть. Ребенку вообще-то навредить как-то!!! Врач ответила, что имеют все шансы быть какие-то отклонения у ребенка и ему может передасться уреа. Я, может, чего не понимаю, но у меня будет к/с, через родовые пути он навряд ли словит. К тому же что в этом страшного? Но вот слово "отклонения" меня испугало. Одним словом, вопрос таков - имеет ли резон начинать воспринимать лекарства или же нет? Действительно имеют все шансы быть какие-то "отклонения"?

How do you keep out the burgeoning viruses and Trojan horses, prowling in the cyberspace? There is any amount of plans like spam, adware, adware, malware and hackers prepared to assault at the earliest option. Without the information of world wide web consumers, credit score card numbers or passwords can move onto the improper palms. These security problems need to be dealt with urgently and here are two essential ideas for you.

one. The 1st step to protect your pc is to set up a great virus scanner and firewall. Let us face the specifics, Microsoft's firewall is just not enough, and so are from your ISP and modems. No modem arrives with built in antivirus application. Hence you have to get and put in a single. You can select from a variety of virus scanners and firewalls, but reliable amongst them are: Norton, AVG, McAfee, and ZoneAlarm. AVG and ZoneAlarm are free software program.

two. A [url=http://scrapeboxfaq.com/scrapebox-proxies ]Buy Proxies Org [/url] aids on the web security. This server hides your IP, which is special and unchangeable even if you want to. This IP identification should be stored secret. If a cybercriminal accesses it, he can get your info, and use it to your detriment.

In this total process a proxy functions discreetly. When you attempt to obtain a hyperlink, the browser informs the server in typical situations, whilst a proxy server assures that it receives this info first, and filters the info. Even if the net server tries to know your IP, it will only be accessing the IP of the proxy server. Nonetheless, the proxy server can accessibility all your facts, and as a result you really should go for a proxy server which you can rely on.

Considering that Proxy Servers assist On-line Protection., you really should know how to set up a single. Faulty set up can lead to an unsafe proxy - consequently meticulously follow the different steps.
