  •  There is also the Dilbert factor (13+ / 0-)

    Republicans simply do not understand the meaning of design and quality control. They assume that throwing money at the problem is sufficient.

    •  Truer words never spoken (7+ / 0-)

      I worked for an integrated hardware/software company in Texas where all the management was conservative, the developers were liberal. Management was ALWAYS trying to push product out the door before testing was finished, and when customers complained about buggy systems they wasted no time pointing the finger at the Quality Assurance lab. In the two years I worked there I saw three QA managers get fired. I think someone in our QA department actually coined the phrase "thrown under the bus."

      There are two types of republicans, the rich and the stupid. The rich ones strive to keep the stupid ones stupid and the stupid ones strive to keep the rich ones rich.

      Picture management meetings run like the Benghazi with that incomprehensible passive aggressive neurotic babbling about how everything proves something horrible.

      Once a trace amount of that gets into the process, it's all over.

      Throwing money at the management bonuses, and hiring the cheapest coders they can get.

      And, of course, "testing? What's that?"

      •  H1Bs and/or Outsourcing (0+ / 0-)

        I can easily picture some paranoid Republicans deciding that there would be far less chance of their nefarious plans being leaked if they outsourced the coding or, barring that, hired H1Bs (the modern equivalent of indentured workers).  The fact that either of these would be far cheaper than hiring Americans is sweeter icing on the corporate cake.

        To stand in silence when they should be protesting makes cowards out of men. -Abraham Lincoln
