And it is not a new board... it is amazing the complete and utter shite
that people do towards service people. Literally so many people have no
shame, no conscience. They scam, they cheat, they lie, they use
invective to get what they feel entitled to.
At least not everybody in the world is bad, but if I were the Evil
Overlord of the Universe, there are lots of heads that would roll.
To touch on american culture, not politics -
What we actually need right now is a despot. We need to force american
business to change. The executives need to make more sensible wages and
compensation. You can not tell me that some schlub who went to Wharton
is worth $100 million US a year. I really can not see why any executive
could possibly be worth more than $5 million a year. Companies should
not put the interests [and profits] of the stockholders first. The main
reason that offshoring is happening is to eke out more profits for the
stockholders and executives. We need to keep jobs in country because
sure as Jebus made little green apples we certainly do not have any
spiffy new tech coming up to provide new jobs. Economists have theur
heads firmly up their rumps when they liken it to the change over to the
Auto. Certainly buggy makers got new jobs making cars, but we dont have
any new tech to change over to and we can not all live on mcjobs. We
need stores to grow spines and tell entitlement wh*re customers *no*
instead of bowing down to every little whinge they make to get what they
want - it raises the cost of living for us peaceful folk that don't try
to extract every penny out of the world by lying, cheating and outright
stealing. And the ultimate unfair? Rob and I bought a house we could
afford on a single military salary. We have made every payment for the
past 20 years. We pay our bills, and have no credit cards. Asshats who
buy mcmansions, get every piece of plastic available and spend more than
they earn get bailed out, we get nothing for being honest and living
within our means. Something is drastically wrong.
