Hiring based on sex and race not only endangers the public by placing incompetents in positions of power (see for example, Kamala Harris) but is also grossly unfair to minorities who are actually competent. Competent minorities are no longer trusted because the public is well aware of the sea of incompetents hired or promoted based on "Affirmative Action" and other overtly racist and sexist anti-competence programs.

Yet maybe there is a silver lining in that incompetence in America is now so widespread via diversity hires that basic actions like billing are falling apart. My wife got a medical bill which was for $300, with insurance paying about $250 of that. So the correct bill is $50, but the bill we got is for $550 because someone added the amounts together instead of subtracting the amount insurance paid. She has been on the phone trying to get it corrected, but the people she gets on the phone do not seem to understand even this level of basic addition and subtraction.

In this case, it's not in our favor, but I rather doubt that they are competent enough to collect at all. I think it would be easy to take good advantage of organizations which put "diversity" above competence simply by confusing them and relying on bureaucratic inertia.

I think the best bet is becoming a script writer for Netflix.

Shorting Anheuser Busch at the appropriate time. I'm sure that there are others.

They are going to be hiring...what...85000 IRS agents. They are all going to be diversity hires because the unemployment rate is like 3.6%. Anyone who knows anything has a job.

Hilarity will ensue.

Buy profitable companies that have low ESG scores. At some point, reality and market valuation will come back

This is like Robert Reich pushing for unionization at Starbucks.

The big money interests (i.e., Soros, etc.), that bankroll Reich and the unionization effort, end up shorting Starbucks stock.

How about shorting Disney ? Its got enough disasters like the movie Elemental and Strange World to drag it down, as well as ABC, ESPN, and streaming services.

I think Disney has too high of a floor. They could always put old movies back in theaters if they wanted or market the old un-woke stuff. They have theme parks that kids still want to go to, hell adults. ESPN already ate shit over a decade ago with cord cutters so I don't think they really factor into it. That's just dudes putting it on in the morning if they have a cable package when getting ready for work. It was on in every bachelor pad I would show in the mornings.

The ABC wing as well is probably fine. They can't keep bombing on the new movies though. It would take an unprecedented amount bombs (movie wise) in theaters to effect the stock price that much long term. We just don't know what's going on behind the scenes if some dumb ass remake is coming out.

These companies will wake up from the woke shit at some point. Stockholders will be at their homes banging on the door of the CEO. Disney has too much digital property and physical property to drop too far. ABC and ESPN already suck and I don't think can get much worse.

You don't realize that Disney is a franchise. Sony is famous for producing awful films. Pixels was an example. They made Jack and Jill which bombed. After a point, you look at the franchise to determine if it's worth seeing the film. Disney had produced so many awful pictures, and has incessantly pushed their "gay agenda" and were caught on camera saying they were doing this - I think they are damaged goods for years.

If they backtracked, just superficially, they could have gotten away with it, but they didn't. They destroyed Star Wars, they have ruined many (so-called) classics with live action remakes, they constantly create controversy as a marketing tactics which although it generates chatter, it turns off the audience. Their parks are extremely expensive. Disney just isn't kid friendly anymore or family friendly - at least from the parent's point of view and it's mom and dad that has the money.

They are a bit like Budweiser, they think they have a captured audience and that they can deliver anything to the audience. That's never true. I think they will continue driving themselves into the ground and it will take them a long time to backtrack. When is the last time Dizzey produced a well regarded, well received film? 10 years ago? 10 more years, and they lost an entire generation. That generation will not look upon their films in the same way the boomers, Generation X and Y did.

I think the Soros hedge fund works on this principal.

I think they try to create conditions in companies and countries (for Woke and globalism agenda), and then bet against those companies and countries, or invest based on having significant control over governments.

Such as I wonder how much Soros made from buying oil and gas companies (or renewable energy companies) by controlling Biden's energy policies.
