Dave Schuler Is Tired
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m tired of people who find principles when their pensions are secured and people who are all for free trade (except for the trade restrictions that benefit them, personally). IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m tired of Fortune 1000 CEOÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s who make 100ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s of millions of dollars when thereÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s not a doubt in my mind that an Indian CEO every bit as competent could be hired for a fraction of the cost.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m tired of companies like United and Ford where the employees hate their jobs while there are other companies (sometimes in the very same industries) like Southwest and Costco where the employees love theirsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬?even with lower salaries.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m tired of our leaders making nice with the cliques of thugs running the most horrible countries in the world because they think there might be a buck in it for an American company somewhere.
IÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢m tired of false equivalences. Neither we nor our government are as bad as the mullahs in Iran or the religious police in Saudi or the gangsters in the Chinese Politburo. George Bush has lots of shortcomings (where do I begin?). But heÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s not a Hitler or a Kim Jong-Il and claiming he is just makes me angry. And tired. Clinton wasnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t as bad as his detractors made out, either.
We hear ya Dave.
