Let me ask you something regarding villain CEOs:

Warren Buffett aside, have you ever known a billionaire NOT compelled to say something completely douchebaggish and straight off of a Fox News cue card when put in front of a camera?

Like, do any of them say -

"All I can tell you is try, give it your best shot, don't be afraid to ask for help and help your fellow human being when he or she has fallen on hard times. After all, everyone who is where I'm at asked for help along the way."

as opposed to -

"I'M THE GREATEST, SMARTEST AND HARDEST WORKING FUCKER ON THIS PLANET AND GOT THIS SHIT COMPLETELY ON MY OWN WITH NO HELP FROM ANYONE! OH AND I'M LAYING OFF 20,000 OF YOU USELESS COMMIE EATERS SO YOU CAN PLAY SOCIALISM WITH YOUR MARXIST PRESIDENT AND I'M GOING TO BUY THE NEXT ELECTION BECAUSE I CAN!!!"

These guys make more money per week than most people will see in their entire lives.

What's in it for them to be SUCH [font size="4"]DICKS[/font]?? It's almost as if they're smugly mocking us and they just don't care that they are.

1. Ever watch the Fox Business Channel?

They're a dime a dozen. I saw an interview one time with the CEO of US Airways pleading the case to cut company pension plans because it ensured a higher profitablity ratio. Really there's no end to their madness.

2. Literally THREE minutes over my Dad's house. That's ALL I could take.

Any wonder why many Faux Business anchors come from CNBC? It's like the farm club to the ultimate McPravda.

Both stations should be dropped. They're barely even informative and only exist to push a toxic narrative.

3. They have to boast nonstop, otherwise everyone will realize the emperors have no clothes.


In all truth, most of these guys are mediocre yes men. Many of them are complete clowns. Look no further than Dubya, the only president ever to get an MBA. LOL

4. The operative word being "get". He certainly didn't earn it . . . .

. . . as witnessed by his failing in pretty much everything he's ever done in life.

And the ever-smart American people, in all of their infinite wisdom, gave him enough votes (not to mention a little help from the State of Florida, his brother, Katherine Harris, The United States Supreme Court that stopped the recount and unjudiciously interfered with a state-run electoral process, and various complicit media channels) to be installed for his coup de grace of fail, the American Presidency. Twice.

We let idiots run our country and control our wealth.

It's amazing.
