Attorney general disregarding the rule of law to fan racial flames

July 16, 2013 Leave a comment

Classic and typical behavior.  Combine this with champion race-baiter Al Sharpton planning his Summer of Flames tour and you have to wonder what other evidence is required to establish  charges of “inciting a riot”?  The “Reverend” gives televangelists and other carney barkers a bad name

when even Chris Matthews loses the thrill up his leg you know that you’re in trouble if you’re a Democrat

incompetence across the board on every major project, healthcare is a disaster, the president is out of touch, even the media is starting to ask the questions that should of been asking five years ago. Democrats are scrambling to build a firewall around Hillary in the presence about find out how lonely it is at the top

Does he really have such lack of self-awareness? I guess he is used to the critical thinking skills of his Democrat followers

Converging run-up to the election

October 15, 2012 Leave a comment

The market continues to hem and haw leading up to the election. Following that the sequestration decision has enormous implications for next directions in the US mkt. There’s a 1.5T potential swing based on who wins and how sequestration pans out.

In the worst case (in my view) Romney wins, and tries to spend an addition 1T on defense over the next 10 years, AND sequestration is lifted preventing an additional 500B from being auto-cut from defense.  That would be 1.5 large down the drain, and would perpetuate the aggressive overseas interventionist policies of the last decade. Meanwhile we cant get funding for high school sports teams and free community college and skills training

 

 

the engineering approach to problem solving

September 5, 2012 Leave a comment

The hybrid approach you referred to I think reflects the sense of the sociotechnical process. I can’t imagine why people and organizations would not intentionally adopt that as the default position when considering organizational issues, and yet I see people polarizing around either or approach all time in my organization.

It seems to me that the engineering approach really appeals to people who think they have a good handle on the situational assumptions in the problem area he can rely on rules of cause and effect and planning factors lead them to a efficient and effective solution. The simplifying assumption that sociology doesn’t have a major effect and what they’re about to do can sometimes be warranted but is often the assumption that we come to regret later.
