Earlier this week Donald Trump received one of the most scathing attacks yet, and it came from a rather eclectic group of some of the brightest people in the entire country. The vast majority of them in the technology field and while their disclaimer clearly states they aren't speaking for their company, they felt this issue was so important they were willing to sign a personal statement critical of the Donald.

Here's the opening two paragraphs:
We are inventors, entrepreneurs, engineers, investors, researchers, and business leaders working in the technology sector. We are proud that American innovation is the envy of the world, a source of widely-shared prosperity, and a hallmark of our global leadership.

We believe in an inclusive country that fosters opportunity, creativity and a level playing field. Donald Trump does not. He campaigns on anger, bigotry, fear of new ideas and new people, and a fundamental belief that America is weak and in decline. We have listened to Donald Trump over the past year and we have concluded: Trump would be a disaster for innovation. His vision stands against the open exchange of ideas, free movement of people, and productive engagement with the outside world that is critical to our economy  and that provide the foundation for innovation and growth.

The closing statement is absolutely brilliant and you can read it here along with the names of more than 150 signers.

No surprise. All they want is more foreigners to be allowed in to take American jobs while increasing their profits. All greed all the time with these guys.

That was a very interesting letter to read, and a rather impressive list of signers. I can see why people whom did not read the letter find it offensive.

Translation : I'm bright so listen to me because you're not and I know what is best for you. I have in the past acted in your best interest and I'm in the 1% who has received most of the benefit and income.
Don't be afraid of me as I fear monger to continue the status quo. Keep your hands off my butterfinger.
You are an idiot and you need to listen to me.... and some will.

Billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel just gave his first explanation of why he's for Trump

I thought everyone was aware of this as it is a major issue.

I have incredibly different political views from some of my smartest and wealthiest friends. It doesn't make me or them any more right or wrong.

I think we will see more threads like this as those on crooked Hillary's payroll have to justify their paycheck.
They won't make much of the issues that are important but continue to divert attention from their failed candidate.
