On Thursday, Microsoft announced it would cut 18,000 jobs (14% of the company workforce) in the next year, the largest reduction in company history. Since its acquisition of Nokia, experts predicted there would be some layoffs, but the number is double the amount predicted.
Stephen Elop, head of Microsofts device unit (the hardest hit by the layoffs) and former CEO of Nokia, proceeded to bury the news about 12,500 layoffs in the eleventh paragraph of a corporate memo. Elop begins the memo with a cheery Hello there, stating Microsofts strategy is focused on productivity and our desire to help people do more. He goes on to explain the company plans to refocus efforts and concentrate on its phones, the area it can add the most value.

Melinda Gates: Gates Foundation Will Not 'Fund Abortion'
For example, suppose that the Gates Foundation funds the cost of real estate acquisitions, utilities, and all costs associated with promoting "birth control" other than surgical abortions. That would keep a cleaner reputation for Klan Gates while still getting the job done. Planned Barrenhood could take the money previously devoted to real estate acquisitions and maintenance and utilities and promoting "birth control" and shift that pre-existing money to promoting and performing abortions. Of course, much of what Planned Barrenhood calls "birth control" is pharmaceutical abortion preventing the newly conceived separate human being from implanting in the womb. Melinda Gates may be a bit more sensitive to public image on this since she graduated a Texas Catholic High School. She has also made public addresses, however, in which she questions the wisdom of poor women having so many children. That was a key tenet of Margaret Higgins Sanger, founder of Planned Barrenhood.
If you can get access to a nearly century old book, T. Lothrop Stoddard's The Rising Tide of Color Against White World Supremacy (ca. 1922), it is an eye opener. Stoddard had three degrees in history from Harvard and was Sanger's faithful ideologist and writer. She named him to the Board of Directors of the American Birth Control League which became Planned Barrenhood. Check him out in encyclopedias. Also check out Madison Grant of the same era who founded the American Museum of Natural History in NYC and wrote The Passing of the Great Race (1916).
Oh and lest I forget: May God bless you and yours!
Right now I am up to my eyeballs in reading matter, but I will add those to the future list.
