    Essentially it is what the court ruled was going on there. But I would still like to see what the court saw.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    you have no percentage, no share, no proportional part, in short, NO quota

    You did a good job of proving him right. You should read your link.


    When the total number of jobs or enrollment slots is fixed, this proportion may get translated to a specific number. In education, this kind of quota is also known as Numerus clausus.

    You do know words work together to make meaning. Don't forget the part "this proportion." Or what comes before that. When you take words out without acknowldging the rest, youy get the wrong meaning. Totol number of jobs are fixed, slots are fixed, not a one time number. Learn to read the entire thing.

    Re: FDNY ordered to hire minorities

    I'm still wondering how it sits okay with people that the court is telling FDNY how many people it has to hire that have a certain skin color or ethnic background.

    Semantics aside, I mean.

    The courts have awlays given remedy to wrongs. This is not new. And this is the only way the laws this type of thing, for a wrong shown in court. Now, the judge could be wrong about the injury or the specifics. But, let's nto paint it as something it isn't.

    Is that what I'm doing? Admittedly I didn't fact check the link I posted, but I believe it said the court ordered them to go out and add 293 brown-colored folks to the payroll. That just seems uh...

    The real question to be asked is ... why are there not more blacks and Hispanics in the FDNY? Such a service should reflect the communities it serves, but it seems it does not in New York... so why?

    Why should the providers of a service reflect the community's demographics? It's not like black people are better at putting out the fires where other black people live. I think the service should just be provided adequately. I don't know the real reason why FDNY's demographics don't parallel New York's, but apparently some people think it's the entrance test, eh?

    I'm wondering when courts are going to start forcing restaurants to hire bald, fat ugly men as hosts in decent restaurants. Because you know you'll only ever see hot chicks there when you walk in. "How many?" they ask. "As many as you want, girl."
