When we have hiring based on anything other than quality of the applicant, we are fucked.So we are clearly fucked. China is winning.
@GreaterNYCDude I admire this. Do not be discouraged if people mock you.
The positions of the real movers and shakers will not be subject to this treatment.
Barr was born on May 23, 1950, to Mary and Donald Barr, both of whom + were faculty at Columbia University. Barr was one of four brothers, according to AJC. He was raised on the Upper West Side and went to prestigious private schools.According to his bio for Kirkland & Ellis, Barr went to Columbia University as an undergraduate; he received his A.B. in government, then his M.A. in government and Chinese studies in 1973.From there, Barr went on to work at the CIA. Following that four-year stint, Barr went to George Washington University law school.Barr married his wife, Christine, in 1973, right before he went to work at the CIA. Little is known about Christine, but she and Barr do have at least one child.As news of Barr’s potential appointment to the Trump administration began to circulate, one especially interesting news angle came out: if Barr were appointed, he would indirectly oversee his daughter, Mary Daly, who works at the Department of Justice.According to The Washington Post, Daly is a former federal prosecutor who specialized in prosecuting gang members and drug traffickers in New York and Virginia for thirteen years. She now works in the deputy attorney general’s office as the administration’s point person on the opioid crisis.Barr... was the Attorney General for the Bush administration from 1991-93.
Former Navy SEAL Rob O'Neill – who was the one who murked Osama Bin Laden – had some thoughts on this madness."You know what amazes me is that over 10 years ago, we had a group of CIA officers, most of whom were women and some were minorities... we had the best of the best. It didn't matter what your skin color was, it did didn't matter what your gender or your non-gender was. They found him, they sent us.""We picked everyone based on what they can do, not what they looked like. We still have the capability to do that, but we're being downgraded for wokeists."
There is one silver lining here: if I were an enemy of the United States right now, I'd be too busy laughing at us to plot murderous schemes!
