You might think the Democratic Party Brain Trust is cutting it a little close on their timing, but they are professionals who know exactly what they are doing. It’s not as if the whole Democratic Party recklessly went all in two months ago without any other evidence than the vague reminiscences of a menopausal lady who had gotten herself all worked up emotionally over remodeling her house.

Logically, the Democrats must have The Proof for Dr. Blasey Ford’s charges in their files, and they’ve been sandbagging revealing it while waiting for Just the Right Moment, which, by my calculations, is … well, now that I think about it, probably a week ago due to early voting, like how the Dems saved their leaking of GWB’s drunk driving arrest until six days before the 2000 election. But then I’m not a professional campaign operative, so what do I know?

Meanwhile, the Senate Republicans have found two unnamed dudes who aren’t Brett Kavanaugh who each claim to have decades ago made out with a girl who might have been Christine Blasey Ford.

So there’s that.

    Seniors rotting on the job

    A number of fast-food and casual-dining restaurants around the country, like McDonald’s and Bob Evans, are actively recruiting senior citizens who employers say are more sociable and punctual than teenagers, Bloomberg reports.

    reports that the amount of working Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 is expected to grow by 4.5% between 2014 and 2024. Meanwhile, the rate of people working between the ages of 16 and 24 is expected to plunge by 1.4%.

    https://www.axios.com/senior-citizens-taking-over-fast-food-jobs-4ef5fe8e-3107-47f2-8dc0-de8865130b13.html?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=organic&utm_content=1100

    From a public policy perspective this is a disaster. The base of the social insurance programs is that they incentivize the elderly to leave the workforce, creating job openings. There’s also an unspoken racial angle, in that (whiter?) seniors are preferred over the vibrant youth.

  2. Does anybody believe Christine Ford anymore? I mean anybody other than the cat ladies and other useful idiots?

    Hopefully the court proceedings on the various Kavanaugh rape hoaxes (including hers) and the treasonous FISA conspiracy over the next couple of years before the 2020 cycle will open a few eyes.

  5. And how many dumb donkey voters care?

    BTW one strategy to telling a good lie and beating a polygraph is to use a real event as the foundation of your story. “Dr.” Blah-Blah Ford could have built her tale around this real event from her life. That way it seems real in her mind when she is talking about it and answering questions like, “what where you wearing,” and “was the boy on top of you,” etc.

    As we know, Ford coached at least one person on how to pass a lie detector test.

    Youth unemployment is bad. A preference for seniors could be another example of “employer race realism”. In terms of reducing crime and degeneracy, employment has a good track record.

    https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-avenue/2016/06/21/where-are-the-nonworking-prime-age-men/

    U6 is at 7.4%, so unemployment in the absolute sense is not at the 5% that we consider full employment. Thus it’s not surprising that wage growth has only recently ticked up.

    When the country was substantially white (like the mid 70s) this was standard practice at the MickyDs. You hired the seniors for the hours the kids were at high school and the kids worked the weekends and after school. Of course, it was herding cats and made the manager’s job much harder than hiring illegals.

    You have to hire alot of them and allocate hours to them so that everybody has hours. You have to make calls when somebody flakes out and calls in “sick” or it gets busy when you don’t expect it. You have to be a bastard and bully people to leave their scheduled shift early when it slows down. You can just tell an illegal to go but a kid you have to make him want to leave – clean the toilets, jump on the trash in the dumpster, clean the vomit in the parking lot….. At least it gave kids a job.

    Why are you still talking about this? Are you under the impression that false accusation is a crime? Meanwhile, a Republican activist appears to have accused Robert Mueller of ten year old rape. It’s not clear how serious the accusations are, but the mainstream media went to great lengths to make one thing clear: if you accuse a Republican, no story is too preposterous, and no defense is legitimate, you must Believe Her. If you accuse Robert Mueller, the entire thing reverses, the accusations are first introduced in major media as false charges, there is no talk of believing anyone except the man who (according to the official story) is partially responsible for the deaths on IX/XI.

    So employer race realism is bad? It is bad to allow those employers who want to to choose older white workers over Trayvons who don’t show up on time, are disrespectful, and spoil the mood of the diners who pay the bills? Sorry. I’m not buying that.

    I agree that youth unemployment is bad, but that is a symptom not a cause. The issue is not that seniors are displacing them, but rather the degeneracy of the youth themselves. Youth unemployment does not cause crime. Willingness to engage in criminal activity makes youth unemployable. Degeneracy causes unemployment, not the other way around.

    I agree with the Wax-Richwine article that it is critical to greatly restrict (for me, stop completely) the massive ongoing flood of Mexicans and Central Americans.

    The Berube article is dated from June 2016, well before the recent recovery. It is no longer relevant.

    Have a look at the data below on labor force participation. There has been a significant improvement after 2016 — a break in the negative trend — which is not surprising given all of the other economic improvements which began since Trump’s election.

  16. Steve, the Party took Ms. Ford out of the game and away from the park. She threw her eight pitches and failed to close. Only one pitch over 95 in the batch “I remember most of all the laughter.” Then Mr. Kavanaugh came to hit and win with his mama’s boy face, voice, and history, and exposed her for the storyteller that she is. Of course a nation that still retained an anchor of common sense would consider 36 year-old kegger allegations childish at best, and the embarrassing experience would never have occurred.

    Statistically speaking, it’s nuch more likely that Bill Cosby groped Christine Blasey Ford.

  18. Achilles says:

    He said that the kiss happened in the bedroom of a house which was about a 15-to 20 minute walk from the Van Ness Metro, that Dr. Ford was wearing a swimsuit under her clothing, and that the kissing ended when a friend jumped on them as a joke. [Redacted] said that the woman initiated the kissing and that he did not force himself on her.

    Nothing to do with this case. You see, there was a fashion fad in the 1980s when teenage girls would typically wear swimsuits under their clothing. Very common. And in the 1980s, if you were making out with someone, very likely the next thing that would happen would be a friend jumping on you.

    It probably happened dozens of times that Frau Professor Doktor Ford was making out with some boy while wearing a swimsuit under her clothes when someone jumped on them.

    The same employer race realism that leads to elderly (whites/other) being preferred over (black/other) youth, also leads to construction favoring Hispanics and tech favoring Asians. In general I tend to believe that legacy populations deserve preference, and that those coming out of poverty also deserve preference, along with veterans.

    The elderly often seem to be working out of boredom, and I think that this should be discouraged, volunteerism should be encouraged instead. As an additional matter of public policy, Social Security is supposed to prevent impoverished elderly.

    Figure 2 in the Hamilton Project shows that the labor market still has slack at the bottom ends.

    From this graph, SNAP usage is still much higher than it was during the peak of the dotcom bubble.

    In terms of social norms, I think it is important to restore the acceptance of teenagers working during the summer, perhaps in school-based “work study” during the school year.

    Tech likes to hire East Asians and Indians primarily because they are in worse bargaining positions via H1B’s and have to be overly loyal to their hiring manager. Otherwise, they can find themselves without a visa sponsor and likely to be deported.

    In terms of construction hiring Hispanics, I suspect there is a similar dynamic. The often illegal immigrants are in a position where they wish to avoid legal scrutiny, which means they are unlikely to file workman’s comp or sue. Same goes for agribusiness. Additionally, immigrants skew young, so there are fewer health issues. The 25 year-old Mexican can work 10-hour shifts standing. The 45 year-old American will likely need breaks for their knees, ankles, or back.

    I didn’t sense that anyone believed-believed her as we think of it, no matter how vehemently that claim was asserted. (Lying to oneself then others about what one is observing/experiencing is a fundamental faith-signalling method of leftism, especially among academics. Their standards of proof are quite different from ours.)

    She was the equivalent for the Dems of Slim Pickens yee-ha’ing the nuke out of the bomb bay. Or perhaps more accurately a Goddess statue hauled in to immanentize a miracle…or simply cow the males into acquiescence with the globo Will using all the usual spells and incantations of (((radical))) feminism.

  33. The Democrat plan, reverse engineered from Kavanaugh’s friendship with Mark Judge, was always self-defeating. Ford could’ve chosen not to place anyone else at the made-up encounter, but was persuaded by FBI agent McLean to name Judge as present. This required her to then name others, and you know how the rest of the story goes.

    My assertions are no less verifiable than any of those made against Kavanaugh.

    Tech likes to hire whoever has at least a BS (preferably MS) in CS/CSE. They typically won’t hire you if you don’t have the right degree. That’s how the job market works these days, especially in tech.

    There was a time when employers hired people with the “wrong” degree (or even no degree) if the person had decent skills and aptitude. Back then, on-the-job training was common. These days the world is a different place, with much more emphasis being placed on credentials. I’m not sure when this started, but probably sometime around the 90s.

    When the tech industry claims that there is a “skills shortage,” what they mean to say is that there’s a shortage of computer science degree holders. Not a shortage of people who could be trained.

    Why don’t more kids go into computer science? Mostly because it’s hard and requires a lot of homework. Few 20 year-olds want to stay up late debugging code. Most kids want to do an easy degree (like Business Administration or Econ), then glide into some BS job in sales or “social media marketing.” Or, if they’re ambitious, they want to become a lawyer and spend their day reenacting a tv show like “Law and Order.” Perhaps not surprisingly, a disproportionate share of American computer science graduates are Asians

    So when employers look around and find a shortage of people with computer science degrees, they just start importing foreigners. There are lots of talented Euro programmers, but they have a high standard of living and typically don’t want to go overseas. Asia has programmers with very sharp technical skills, but their English is subpar. Corporate America hates people who speak English poorly. India produces a ton of programmers with English fluency – and nearly all of them want to immigrate. The quality varies tremendously and is often inconsistent, but the upper-end schools produce enough programmers who are at least semi-credible. Lots of coding assignments don’t require Einstein, you just need basic intelligence and lots of diligence.

    Back before huge numbers of foreigners began showing up, it was pretty easy to find a computer programming job. However, it was hard to get the type of labor you needed for a quick-growing tech startup or business services support, so companies couldn’t grow quickly. That’s one reason why it was a lot more rare to hear about hot shot entrepreneurs or dynamic corporate growth stories in the past. There are lots of businessmen, execs, and financiers making a lot of money under the current system.

    If America had powerful labor unions/guilds to protect the programming profession from foreign competition, programming salaries would be absurdly high and job opportunities would be plentiful. Similar to how the AMA keeps doctor salaries high. However, unions have been in rapid decline for many decades.

    “When the tech industry claims that there is a “skills shortage,” what they mean to say is that there’s a shortage of computer science degree holders. Not a shortage of people who could be trained.”

    I didn’t think they could use programming aptitude tests in the States because of Griggs v Duke Power – is this true?

    In the UK large companies used to train people, but it’s easier to get the H1B equivalents on “Intra-company visas” – another area where our so called Conservative government has been useless.

    But we can use tests still, I think.

    The problem with this thesis is that institutional labor has been utterly captured by the Democrats, and has turned a blind eye to the effects of immigration both legal and illegal on wages generally.

    A programmer’s union today would just find the shortest path to be organizing the Babus and Pajeets themselves to funnel dues to elected Democrats anyway.

    Do you remember that in the middle of the Doctor Professor Blasey Ford nonsense, someone suggested that the incident might have happened but involving someone other than Kav and he was pounced upon as being worse than Hitler for suggesting such a thing when the truth was burned upon the Professor’s Hippo Campus?

    Of course the same thing happened with Jackie – the 1st people to publicly doubt her were vilified. However, I don’t think that there is ever going to be enough proof to collapse the Blasey Ford narrative – the “official” version in the Leftist media is always going to be that a rapist sits on the Supreme Court.

    However, you’ll notice (as I predicted) that the incessant slander against Kav stopped the moment it no longer had any chance of changing the outcome. From the day of the vote onward, the Left has been radio silent on Kav and his accusers.

    I’ve worked at three different Fortune 500s over the years that ran full-time 13 week training programs for Pajeets that came over from India with CS degrees. After going through the training programs, they had more training on the specific work they would be doing.

    A huge part of the appeal of Pajeets (and foreigners) in general, is that management never has to worry about getting any “feedback” from them about management’s performance and they never have to worry about seeing them outside of work or even engage them in conversation at work. The last thing management wants is to go to the movies or a ball game or out-to-dinner and see people who work for them. If a mid-level manager knows that his employees make enough to go to the same places he can afford to go, it makes him realize that he’s not special and unique and “a captain of industry” but is instead just a mid-level manager who got his job because he’s an ass-kisser and “yes man”.
