I’ve been in sales a long time and have coached many employees but I was both amused and appalled when I overheard a sales supervisor today use this on one of their employees…
“You have to create fear and uncertainty in the customer and then they will buy.”
Funny… that is the same approach the Democratic Party and the Liberal Media used to get your vote.
Once upon a time unions had their place. They have helped the lives of many and helped shaped better working environments for people. Over the years this organization has turned into greedy, overpaid thugs who destroy everything.
Of course some people think unions are good to make things “fair” and consistently force pay raises for their members. Businesses cannot operate that way. They cannot pay everyone 70k a year with HUGE pensions and pay for everything to keep their business afloat. Unions slow down profits, work productivity and progress. They damage healthy communication between the employer and the employee. They claim the employers are greedy (I’m not denying some are) when they are greedy themselves. These union bosses make a shit load of money. They make their money off the backs of the workers making them pay dues. All the while speaking on behalf of the workers even against the workers will without a say in their own negotiations.
We are in a time where we no longer have sweat shops. We have safety procedures, fire escapes, osha, child labor laws, work/lunch breaks, laws against discrimination, human resources departments, and on and on today. There is NO NEED for unions.
So this whole thing with Hostess… damn shame. The company is working in a shitty ass economy and in order to save jobs wanted to have workers take an 8% cut in pay. They were not being greedy, they were trying to save their company and their employees jobs. But of course the union goes crazy, has a strike and calls their bluff. Hostess delivered by then announcing the shutdown of everything, filing for bankruptcy and liquidating everything. 18,000 people now out of work in the blink of an eye. I would have gladly taken an 8% pay cut over being UNEMPLOYED IN THIS ECONOMY. Guess who still has their jobs? The union. Nice work.
I saw this on Twitter, “Twinkies made it thought the Great Depression and World War II, but couldn’t withstand Obama.” So true. But then, I’m sure Michelle (tell us what to eat) Obama is very happy.
Remember those members of the U.N. who were sent here to observe our voting process? An article I read said they couldn’t understand why we are not required to show proof of ID to vote and that we allow mail in ballots and even some online voting. They were surprised at quite a lot of things actually.
This time the USDA delayed its release nine days past the semi-official deadline, far past the election, and until Friday night to report August food stamp data. One glance at the number reveals why: at 47.1 million, this was not only a new all-time record, but the monthly increase of 420,947 from July was the biggest monthly increase in one year.
Sandy victims still without power and supplies. Some reports I saw say that there is a lot of red tape going on. Things like supplies just sitting in areas and not being distributed.
Then of course there is Benghazi. Yes remember that? Four Americans die in a seven hour dog fight after being told stand down while drones fed it all live to Washington D.C. SEVEN HOURS. Then the world told for weeks it was a video to be blamed.
These things are not being reported on our state run media I guess because well… it’s not news? Not important? Don’t want to hurt President Lady Parts reputation? Yet an affair involving decorated military generals is on the front of every web page, newspaper and TV station for two straight days and I’m guessing many more to come. So very pleased that America has its priorities straight. ‘Cause well… I was confused as to what we should be focusing on to help our country and its citizens.
I find it pretty rich that the democratic party finds the word “binders” is offensive to women when they put out ads that pander to women and sexualize the voting process. Really dems? What a great example for young girls, how proud you must be.
Yes, I get that the ad is meant to be hip and funny but seriously… you find the term “binders” offensive yet you put out ads like this?
I love that we are focusing on these oh so important topics critical to the country like paying for slutty women’s birth control with my tax dollars.
Meanwhile in unreported news for unimportant topics for the country…..
Here is a list of some famous people supporting Mitt Romney. They are actors, singers, comedians, TV hosts, pro sports, olympians and team owners.
A couple of months ago I had a texting conversation with my Rambo. I kept meaning to post it but weeks of work travel took up my focus.
Rambo: I registered to vote today.
Me: You did?
Rambo: Yeah I needed to get that done so I could vote in Texas now.
Me: That’s hot. You are turning me on.
