Google CEO: "Politics has no place in our Workplace" [View all]

Since when, dumbass???

Tell that shit to Koch Industries, Tesla, Amazon, Facebook, Walmart, Harlan Crowe, Leonard Leo, or the thousands of other corporations who buy and trade politicians and Supreme Court Justices like they were Baseball Trading Cards.

I think what you really mean is; "politics has no place in our workplace, that's restricted to the Boardroom, right?

I think we are missing the forrest for the trees. The travesty is NOT that billionaires and millionaires are threatening to exert their "power" over colleges and universities...it's that they have the power to do so.

The only time I ever hear corporate CEOs bitch about "politics in the workplace", is the rare times "politics" makes it out of the shareholders dinner parties.

I guess us "progues", whose labor, sweat and blood fill the wealthy CEOs pockets, are just supposed to shut-up and sing.

Look, there is a hard, but simple solution to almost ALL of America's problems...


Nothing will change! The racism, fascism, misogyny, hatred and white supremacy...NONE OF IT...will change, unless and until we make racism, fascism, misogyny, hatred and white supremacy UNPROFITABLE to the corporations, businesses and individuals that fund and enable it.
