Bloomberg says farmers & machinists don’t use ‘grey matter’ like info techs


Coming off the airing of his ‘throw black youth against the wall’ comment, Bloomberg says he could teach anybody to be a farmer or a machinist. Those fields are simply ‘processes’ [any dope could do].  Bloomberg adds that farming doesn’t require “grey matter” as information technology does. He doesn’t think much of machinists either. They don’t use ‘grey matter’ either.

Then he goes on to describe gardening, not farming.

“It’s [farming] a processie. [n. the group action of a collection of people or animals or vehicles moving ahead in more or less regular formation. Like Lemmings voting for Bloomberg.] “You dig a hole, you put a seed in it, you put dirt on top, you put water on top, and up comes the corn. You could learn that.”

“Then you have 300 years of the industrial society. “You put the piece of metal in the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow, and you can have a job. and we created a lot of jobs. 1.98% of the world worked in agriculture, today, it’s 2% of  the United States.”

“Now comes the information economy. The information economy is fundamentally different. because it’s built around replacing people with technology. And the skill sets you have to learn are how to think and analyze and that’s a whole degree level different.” [Farmers don’t think or analyze, in other words.]

“You have to have a different skillset. You have to have a lot more grey matter.”

Clearly, Bloomberg doesn’t use his “grey matter” when he’s demeaning people.
