Another reminder that we are dealing not simply with mean-spirited ideologues but with enemies of humanity.

The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission does not have strong enough laws to prevent companies from engaging in certain forms of discrimination. Americans seem to believe that companies should be allowed to do as they please, even if this goes against the economic interests of -- you guessed it -- individual, average Americans.

Also, I have not seen much criticism anywhere of college and universities which train corporate managers in business schools and in other professional areas such as engineers who are promoted to being able to hire other engineers. People in higher education tend to be rather defensive when it comes to criticisms leveled against them that they are not doing enough to teach ethics of any kind, let alone business ethics.

The system is broken because poor decisions have been and are continuing to be made, particuarly when it comes to jobs and employment.

A well deserved criticism, especially in the age of "outcome-based" education.

Trump Could Learn From the "Rat Park" Experiment

Even as Donald Trump's surrogates are re-tweeting photoshopped images of Hillary Clinton in blackface, Trump himself is trying to win the black vote by simply asking black Americans "What the hell do you have to lose?!"

And in response to the news that NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin had been shot in Chicago, he sent out two tweets talking about how bad the crime rate is getting.
