Also of note, Scott Adams got shadowbanned [dilbert.com] from twitter, for no apparent reason, and has seen invitations for speaking go from several per month (for decades) to none. He estimates that blogging about the election has cost him $1 million in speaking fees alone.

Sorry, could you just remind me again why the world owes Scott Adams a living giving lucrative speeches? Or are you claiming that there is literally nowhere in the US/world that isn't run by some imaginary liberal mafia? I suppose everyone who's ever worn a Trump badge has been fired from work, banned from their local pub and forced to sell their home and live in a cardboard box?

I don't care of someone votes for Trump, or for Hillary either. However given them $1.25 is a terrible waste of money. The smart investor would say "screw it, I'm spending my money on a ballot initiative instead of either of those bozos".

If I were a Trump supporter I'd be concerned that a donation of $1.25 was considered noteworthy.

All this is is more virtue signaling; heaven forbid the other silicon valley lefties do not publicly show their disapproval. It's this public displays that lefties live for, after all.

Funny enough it's the same people who watch movies like Trumbo and are outraged by the actions of the HUAC and McCarthy. Bunch of hypocrites.

There is a pretty big difference between a group of like-minded individual citizens expressing disapproval, and a government-led witchhunt.

I realize that Trump cannot be pinned on any of the issues and does not really deliver on promises much,

Wait... What? What promises are you talking about? Unlike Clinton, Trump has not ever been a part of politics (directly). There's yet to be any broken promises from him.

That's an interesting way of spinning the fact that Trump has no political experience.

It's like saying that as someone with no medical qualifications whatsoever I'd make a good doctor because I haven't killed any patients yet.

Anybody afraid of Trump is moron. Yes, he's sexist, he's racist, and he's just a complete jerk - but he hasn't "attacked" anyone, or threatened to implement any policies that should make anybody feel "threatened." He's not fueled by hate, he's fueled by greed and a sense of self grandeur, and when has he ever encouraged violence?

What people are afraid of is him becoming President and having his finger on foreign policy (and the nuclear button).

To paraphrase Thomas J Watson "I think there is a world market for about twenty Saturn rockets." And that's not just counting the Saturn Vs.

Unimaginative.....If only they'd have kept building them, through economies of scale, we'd have a Saturn rocket in every household appliance by now.

I'm sure by leveraging some synergies and optimising their best-of-breed supply chain logistics they'd be giving them away free with cornflakes.
