Our New Trustee
I call myself a libertarian Republican. I like what the Republicans say - though often don't do - about lower taxes and smaller government. I don't like the fact that the Republican Party has decided to legislate my se life for me. I can take care of that myself.
Rodgers once publicly rebuked a nun who demanded he appoint more minorities and women to his corporate board, explaining that her demand was unsound and immoral.
And on the positive side:
I would like Mr. Buchanan to meet our "José," Dr. Jose Arreola, the Mexican immigrant with a Ph.D. in transistor physics. José is our top scientist, the one whose responsibility is to manage a group of 30 people--80% with advanced degrees--to produce our most advanced semiconductor technology for the future. Mr. Buchanan may sneer at the "Josés" of America, but if you wanted to build a strong technology company, you would be better off any day with our José than with Pat. José's top young star is Jeff Watt, a Stanford-educated Ph.D., who immigrated from Canada. We would lose jobs without our immigrant technologists.
Slate has a nice profile of him from a few yaers back here:
the hottest war T.J. is currently fighting is against a few fellow Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who have turned their backs on the Cult of Individualism. Of these, the most noxious are a small cadre that has recently cozied up to Bill Clinton. In T.J.'s mind, people who suck up to politicians are usually looking for pork. And people who are looking for pork are afraid to compete honestly. And people who are afraid to compete honestly are natural-born losers.
