Greece has a history of some truly awful behavior, unfortunately. Reporters Without Borders has routinely ranked them as either the absolute worst or close to it of all European countries on the World Press Freedom Index.

NPR did a piece on Greece years ago about how and why they had to adopt austerity measures. One of the things they brought up was that in Greece, it was almost a matter of pride to avoid paying taxes. So, they had a populace that felt that they didn't need to pay for any government services, yet wanted to be able to retire early while the government took care of them.

So yeah, very little that happens in Greece shocks me these days. That doesn't mean I don't think that's horrible. It just means they're badly in need of some social and government reform.

Ancient Greece was a great nation. Gave us some great things. But modern Greece seems a cesspool.

I read the associated article yesterday prior to this being posted, and the BBC backed it with a full 90-minute documentary. I agree with VR - it's evil and illegal.

Modern Greece has suffered huge brain drains over decades.

But you also have to understand the numbers coming into the EU are similar to the US and the fact that the Turks and Russians actively help illegal immigration to destabilise on the EU border from Finland to Greece.

On the southern side most nations are in turmoil and can’t stop illegal immigration. Again aided by Russian middle men who make cash from helping people go to Europe.

It may seem fantastic but many immigrants entering Europe don’t want to go to Europe at all but rather the UK - who are getting up to 500 entries a day in small boats from France with about 40,000 on average per year coming in.

I’ve always believed the best way to solve this is to fix the broken countries these folk come from. And to turn back those who are obviously just economic migrants and ask them to apply properly.

We're going to need a better solution than that once the equatorial nations become borderline uninhabitable in a few decades, stretching who knows how far toward the tropics. The migration we have now will look like a trickle.

I didn't know this was going on at Disney. I knew they sucked at Star Wars and were getting bad online write ups with how they seemed to be pushing a female agenda. But this is out of left field to me.

I love this guy. Ive watched him for years.

Looks like some Project Veritas bullshit (the video he's watching). Quit wasting my time after that.

Looks like more anti-woke bullshit from incels butt-hurt that casting has become more diverse. I'm not making any judgment on the guy doing the video as I'm not going to watch the whole thing, but the very fact that Elon Musk shared the clip he's reviewing tells me all I need to know.

I used to work for a company that used to follow up our diversity training (off the record) that "we should hire the best person for the job" and ignore race/gender. The problem with that phrase is that it's a cover for institutionalized racism. The vast majority of the time, a white man is going to think "the best person for the job" is another white man.

That's actually the law, though. The point of DEI is to help people understand that the best person for the job may *not* look like what they expect. That's why you need to cast a wide net.

Where's the like button? They also might not come from the well use are habitually drink from. Though nowadays with everything being through headhunting services driven by masses of anonymous resume .docs and .pdfs, that's less of a thing. Interviewing 30 years ago in a professional environment for the kind of work I did was always with young white men by between young and middle aged white women in HR working for an elderly white male upper management boss or CEO. Now, with all of the computerization of placement services, the applications that get in front of a hiring manager under the management structure have all diversified. :think:

I probably worded that wrong. In my case, my company's stress on "hiring the best person for the job" was clearly meant to imply to ignore the DEI recommendations.

Yep theres still that. Its wrong but its there. Depends on who is looking at the resume. The world cannot move past its past and move into the 21st century. Someone somewhere is being discriminated against whether it be race religion or love..someone has it out for them. Theres no easy answer. The right answer is to stop raising your kids up on old hate. Stop it now. Stop piddling it on into the future.

I'm trying to decide which of Trump's evil minions is Wormtongue, and there are just too many options:

Bannon
Miller
Stone
Carlson
Flynn
McConnell
Graham
Gaetz
Vance
Jordan
Cruz
Boebert
Greene

etc etc

You'd have to think someone who was corrupted but none of those fit. At this point, I suspect Vance may be his VP which will move the Theil's of the world of the world from allies toward being in his pocket. I also think Vance has no conscience at all and will be as effective of a Thrall as possible,
