re: What is with CNN and the left's obsession with the inaugural crowd size? - bigblake
I think for a more "moderate" Republican the local Democrats might go to the inauguration just for the experience and not necessarily because they voted for the guy/girl. In their opinion Trump is so divisive and therefore they would never go to his inauguration. I imagine that explains a larg...

re: What is with CNN and the left's obsession with the inaugural crowd size? - bigblake
I'm sure Trump has more devout followers than Bush had and I'm sure you'd agree. I imagine the reasons for "less" attendance were: 1. Rained 2. Less Democrat attendance in a predominantly Democrat region. (rain amplified this) 3. He wasn't the first black president. I don't think it's becau...

re: What should I use to play with over 400 million rows of data? - bigblake
400m rows is a lot. Python is not going to be able to handle that well. There are some parallel processing libraries out there but if you don't know python now there is no way you would know how to use them. Your tablet, desktop, laptop has nothing on corporate servers. The servers are fa...

re: Cheer me up. Just filed for unemployment for the first time in my 31 years. - bigblake
Getting a job is mainly about using your network. You should be shamelessly reaching out to friends and acquaintances asking for referrals to companies. Emailing a resume to an online ad is pretty rough, and has a much lower success rate. Ask your friends, people at church, your yoga class, neigh...

re: What's the worst you've ever messed up at work? - bigblake
Was a very new manager at a job that services online and in store. I was a rock star and higher ups let me do whatever I wanted. I decided our website sucked, which it did, and we were getting gouged by our servicer. I got some bids to rebuild the site and upon getting all the contract approvals,...

re: At Least 10 ‘NATO’ Military Officers Captured by Syrian Special Forces this AM - bigblake
I don't believe this. I guess it's possible for an ex US military officer to be in Syria... However, them being on assignment, by themselves, well after it was known that the city would fall seems really suspect. It's more than likely propaganda to try to tie the West to aiding the rebels....

re: Most annoying thing about the poverty debate in America/other 1st world nations - bigblake
"Hunger" in the US has essentially been obliterated. Instead of celebrating that fact, they've now switched to "food insecurity". I see many billboards that have stats like "1 in 6 kids face hunger", but that is based on "food insecurity". I view poverty the same way. Poverty in the past was...

re: Trump has a plan for government workers. They’re not going to like it. - bigblake
I have so many govt worker stories from even my most liberal friends. One (a manager) told me last week that one of his employees said she would not work unless she was promoted (to GS-13) and given a position overseas. I said surely the employee didn't say it like that, and he said, "no, she said...

re: Grubhub CEO tells pro Trump employees to resign - bigblake
Pretty sketchy, but if you read it he doesn't outright say "if you voted for Trump then resign". Rather he tried to say Trump represented bigotry and hatred, and if you stand for those ideals then get out. Therefore I don't think it's necessarily illegal though I surely won't be using grubhub....
