Who’s The Boss?

0 Shares
barack1016_image

One day, as you’re trudging slowly over the mountain of work between you and the blessed relief of the stiff drink and the soft couch in your living room, one of your employees walks into your office. You’ve never liked this guy; in fact, he got the job over your objections. You remain suspicious of his qualifications, and you have some lingering doubts about some the entries on his resume. For example, you couldn’t find anyone except for some shifty-looking dudes who call themselves “community organizers” who were willing to act as references. Nonetheless, he demands your attention.

“Boss, I’ve got this great idea! If we implement it, everything about our company will improve. We’ll be more efficient, more productive and more profitable. Meanwhile, the morale of the employees will improve dramatically. Even the guys on the janitorial staff will reap benefits! I can’t believe anyone hasn’t thought of it before! And all I need is” — you brace yourself — “more money.”

When you ask how much more money he needs to make his dream a reality, he demurs. “Let’s get back to that in a moment.” And then he lays out a plan that will require you to hand over virtually total control of the company, following which he will impose a series of cutbacks to vital areas while simultaneously funneling capital into shady investment schemes and outright fraudulent enterprises. He will force the company to ignore industrial espionage by competitors, even giving them the passcodes to the company’s secure servers. He will change the pay structure so that the most productive and valuable employees are punished for their achievements, while throwing bonuses at some employees who seem unwilling to work at all. He will restructure human resources so that diversity quotas are introduced that supersede merit and accomplishment. He will add functionaries and paper-pushers while forcing blue-collar-level employees to endure either twice the workload or face unemployment. The IT component of his plan would need a ladder to climb to “slapdash.” Even without a computer science degree, you can see the system will fail at a catastrophic level — maybe on the first day. In addition, he wants corporate security to give him unfettered access to every employee’s personnel files — although he never makes it clear how spying on the workforce will benefit the company.

His plan is insane, unworkable and even dangerous. His budgeting makes no sense. He’s either grossly underestimating the company’s fiscal liabilities, or he’s deliberately fudging the numbers. His idea requires the accounting and legal departments to grow exponentially at the cost of virtually every tangibly productive sector of the company. He also lacks the support of well more than half the company’s employees, although most of the dissent is halfhearted and more for show than anything else. Moreover, those who have weighed in on either side of the plan are mostly soft-handed, pudgy, middle-management types who don’t seem to represent the rest of the payroll particularly well. The employees who really make the company successful are far too busy working to pay attention to either side.

As he continues his meandering, backtracking and even outright dishonest pitch, something occurs to you: His plan has been tried before. Back in the early 90s, some fat guy whom everyone seemed to like despite a few fairly serious breaches of the company’s sexual harassment policy tried to foist off a similarly horrendous idea on the company. He got the idea from his wife, although she didn’t work for the company at the time.

You sit up, preparing to tell him that not only are you denying his request, you’re seriously considering firing him for insubordination, theft, dishonesty and even killing some of the company’s finest employees. He grins and says: “I’m not asking you. I’m telling you. Since you hired me, I can do whatever I want. Now, how about you sign this check for $2 trillion?”

Just imagine.

    Absolute proof that it is possible to con the whole world and get away with it. Never before has such an ignoble person been so esteemed. There are of course some on this Planet who see him for what he is and that is very discomforting. We have witnessed a precedent which further leaders are sure to try to emulate. Where this lying, hypocrisy, deceit and infamy will lead to is too unsettling to contemplate.

    Congress and the White House are kicking the can down the road again, the Donkeys hell bent on destruction of the U S and the Elephants too afraid to stand up and fight for what is right. Folks, that is our problem in simple terms, you know who the Donkeys are and you know who the Elephants are. We need people with the guts of our founding fathers, willing to loose everything to join me in putting our Constitution back as the law of the land.

He is nothing more than the dummy sitting on their leg with their hand up his azz making his eyes and mouth move. They hate blacks more than anyone, and why not put a black man in office at a time the US was primed for it? Use him to do their dirty work and in essence show the world how dumb a black man can be…odds are we will never vote black again and that falls into their plan…They are richer because of it and have more control over America and the world and we can blame it on a black man…but all his supporters think they have won!!!

    “The fact that we’re here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. Leadership means ‘The buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit.”

    Who said this? Come on now you can tell us. The fact is, the “burden” is being bestowed upon every one of us right now. The “grandchildren” may be able to read about it. “Maybe”? Dear Mr. & Mrs. “Private Sector”. I”m really sorry to inform you that “you are screwed”.

    “It’s time to fundamentally change the way that we do business in Washington.

        Oh, and for Obama we have the Benghazi incident, the Fast and the Furious Ops, drone bomb killings, HHS Mandate taxpayer abortions, a few unauthorized wars, questionable weapons dealings with Syrian Rebels known to have Al Qaeda ties, F22 donations to Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood, the worst race relations in 40 years, a still stagnant economy, a much larger welfare state, much damage to the freedoms granted Americans by the Constitution as he and his party continue stomping the Bill of Rights, and so many other treasonous anti-American offenses that he should only be compared to the Anti-Christ which possibly brings about the end of days.

        • WHITE WOMEN EVERYWHERE

          You left out the AP scandal & one of the worst things ever, the IRS intentional targeting of conservatives, a litany of illegal ex. orders (welfare reorm, & DREAM ACT, etc.), illegally changing provisions of ObummerCare,….BTW, Obummer’s use of drones are serious war crimes, (43 by Bush in 8 years, over 500 by Obummer in less than 5 years), illegally changing definition of enemy combatant to be, “any adult male in a targeted area, whether there is any evidence of terrorist activity.”, & the repulsive “Double Tap”, a 2nd drone fired a few minutes after the first while rescue workers are trying to save lives. If a GOP prez did these things, the MSM & LOONY TUNES LIBS would be calling for his head on a platter & for him to be dragged into the ICC for prosecution!!!

          BTW #2: during Bush’s 8 years, head of IRS came to se him 3 times, while head of IRS came to the Obummer’s Half-White House over 100 times….hmmmm…I wonder what they were talking about?????????????

        Wow Alex, you are really working hard to find some dirt on Reagan. Did you find out if he swiped any cookies from the cookie jar when he was 10 years old? What a joke.

    • Doc Sarvis

      Reagan was wrong on that one. I think the Rural Electrification program no longer exists as such (it was reorganized into a larger program). AND the Cash for Clunkers Program was started and finished all within one Administration’s term. Hmmmm, that was President Obama who did that “impossible” feat I believe. I guess it took a moderate Democrat to make that happen.

      • russellbennett

        That was not something to be proud of. The increase in sales was matched by a decrease in sales after the program ended and destroying all those good used cars caused a price increase that hurt the people that can’t afford new car prices, It was not a well thought out plan.

      • John Rodgers

        “Cash for Clunkers” was one of the most asinine policies ever legislated. Many used and even good running cars were junked for scrap weight (dealerships were required to destroy viable drivetrains).
        These same cars could have been purchased at low prices, helping the less fortunate (POOR) people.
        The used parts from these cars could have helped keep the less fortunate (POOR) peoples’ cars in repair at lower costs.
        I don’t know too many people driving brand new cars that couldn’t already afford them in the first place, but I sure as hell see many people who could have benefitted by keeping cheap used cars or the parts stripped from them as an option to just scrapping them. CASH FOR CLUNKERS was a real loser!!
        If I ever saw a liberal f*** up, and most of them are real doozies, this is certainly one to remember.

      Good comment Warrior
      You can also say the public sector is like a cancer that continues to grow and will eventually kill the host

    • mark

      Reagan should know. The government, especially the Defense Department, grew massively under him. He tripled the national debt (from $900 billion to $2.6 trillion) during his eight years of office most of it during an economic boom period! And all the while the old hypocrite kept talking about cutting spending. What a joke.

      • speedle24

        That’s right mark, and the result was the end of the cold war and the constant threat of nuclear annihilation. Now that was a helluva investment. Now what did you say we are getting out of Obama’s investment? Let’s see, we have failed energy companies, corrupt federal agencies, massive debts (to our main economic competitor, should I go on?

        • mark

          The Soviets were collapsing on their own due to the decades-long failure of their command economy, the restiveness of their satellite states and ethnic republics – plus their hopeless war in Afghanistan where Reagan funded, equipped, and trained the Jihadists (brilliant move there, Ronnie). They did not need the U.S. taxpayers’ help to implode. But Reagan’s corporate defense billionaire buddies sure appreciate all the help you gave them increasing their profits by a factor of 20 during the 1980s. Those fat cats laughed all the way to the bank, while our debt skyrocketed building weapons that are, of course, all obsolete today.

          • speedle24

            Bullsh-t mark. The Soviets were collapsing because they couldn’t keep up with what they “thought” Reagan was spending (as well as what he “was” actually spending) on defense. The “restiveness” of their satellite states didn’t make any difference for 50 years. You are aware of Hungary and Czechoslovakia, and what the Soviets did to them, aren’t you? Reagan was without question the lynch pin of the destruction of the USSR. Anyone that tries to obfuscate that fact is at best delusional, and at worst a liar.
            BTW, those “fat cats” provided a helluva lot of jobs for Americans.

          • mark

            Soviet defense spending stabilized during the 1980s. And pressure was put on the Soviets by nine U.S. administrations, Democrat and Republican from 1945 to 1991, it was not just Reagan’s defense spending that put a strain on the Soviets. Those jobs provided by the fat cats were union jobs which I know you guys all love, and Reagan put a lot more jihadists to work training them in how to shoot down helicopters, and plant IEDs. We all know how that worked out for our troops later in Iraq and Afghanistan. Ronnie also illegally gave weapons to the Ayatollah Khomeni’s regime after hypocritically stating that he would never “negotiate with terrorists” – no, just give them U.S. high tech weaponry!

          • speedle24

            More bullsh-t, and you are really reaching Mark. I suppose you think we should have supported the Soviets takeover of Afghanistan, and thereby increased their influence over the gulf states, because that’s what would have happened had we not armed the Afghans. Monday morning quarterbacking regarding the direction taken by OBL in the nineties is cheap analysis.
            “Pressure was put on the Soviets by nine U.S. administrations”? Do you mean the administrations that refused to go all out in Viet Nam allowing a decade of U.S. casualties from the “limited war” for fear of Soviet reaction? Or could you possibly mean peanut Jimmah Cahteh who just scared the hell out of our enemies by boycotting the Russian olympics? There was a lot of Soviet butt licking (note that’s a “L” not a K”) by U.S. Presidents up to Reagan. They knew he meant business when he publicly announced they were the “Evil Empire”. Sign off Mark. You can’t win this argument.
            Gave weapons to Khomeni. Hmmmmm. What’s your source on that, Jimmy Carters forgotten memoirs?. And if so, whatever happened to that “high tech weaponry”/

          • John Rodgers

            So I guess Obama gets a pass on the Syrian rebel Al Qaeda weapons scandal, and the border patrol aren’t high enough in the political food chain to warrant concern that American supplied guns might kill them. Huh?
            Mark, you also seem to have forgot the Berlin Wall fell during the Reagan era as did the spread of Communism. America had a renewed sense of pride and open markets promoting new technologies (computers and the internet) which quite honestly aside from the conservative congress were the only reasons Clinton ever looked any good.
            It’s really too bad EVERY “Leader of the Free World” after Reagan has used the office as a political self gratifying toy box!!

      • russellbennett

        Did you notice when we went into WW2 we were not prepared to deal with Countries that had better equipment. We lost a lot of men to German Tanks. the People had to deal with German Rockets that we could not match, We had a tough time in Korea and never had an advantage in Equipment. In Vietnam we still had trouble with our planes being shot down and a lot of our men killed. Under Jimmy Carter our Air force had half of its planes grounded because of lack of parts for service. Remember Regan had to fight The same Democratic House that allowed Carter to reduce our Military. He even stopped Production on the B1 Bomber. Reagan changed all that As a result No country on earth can match The US military. The missile Defence system was started by Reagan. The Democrats threw every thing they could to try to stop that. Obama is trying to take us back to the Carter era.

        Obummer started with 9 Trillion in debt and now he is 17 trillion in debt and rising by another 2 trillion. Where did you go to school you can’t add or face the facts. Welfare must be wonderful.

  • 1baronrichsnot1

    Ben, that is an ept discription of what happened! Now let’s see who allowed it. Uninformed democrat voters who believed they were voting the democrat platform they had for years supported. They didn’t know the party had been stolen years ago by progressive communist, calling themselves democrats! Then the MSM joined in as the progressives they are to provide cover, and the communist they elected worked his magic to destroy the constitution by ACA! People who could see it happening were overshadowed by the people who could not, and this abomination occured. They are still there blindly supporting the distruction of the USA, and degrading it to less than what it was when discovered. We are outnumbered by stupidity, gi’mme, voter fraud, corruption, the ruling class, the gov’t unions, obama care, SCOTUS, Senate, etc. and that makes the overthrow of our representative republic mostly internal. The perfect storm, america didn’t have a chance, its’ electorate was too stupid too long! Won’t be salvaged for a long time, and we are already a different people!

    • Bill

      Great analogy, Baron
      We are definitely outnumbered by stupidity. As evidenced by some of the progressives comments on this site

  • Doc Sarvis

    Nice try Mr. Crystal. You omit from your story that this person had to modify his plan with another entity (Congress) and have it reviewed by a third (the Conservative Supreme Court). This person also made his plan known to all those who were in the hiring panel (citizens) when he applied for the job (election on 2008). After earning the job (Presidency) in 2008 he was up for review in 2012 with the evolution of his proposed program among other things. Again the hiring panel gave their approval and asked him to work for them for another four years.

    • Bill

      You are supposed to say it was all Bush’s fault. When your liberal policies fail, blame someone else

        I qualified it in my text, “citizens”. AND I have never received welfare but I am glad it is there for those in need. We all benefit from many various government programs.

        • Ron

          i agree..with those in need…really in need…but you cannot believe or agree that those gov’t programs you defend are not set up to keep people chained. You say you have never received welfare and then go on to say “WE” all benefit from various gov’t programs, how ironic or shld i say moronic!!! The current entitlement programs in this country are here to hurt this country, not to benefit it!! Put people to work and we all benefit from that, but i guess you believe in redistribution of wealth, so let’s create even more entitlement programs that you can benefit from!!!

          • Doc Sarvis

            If we did not have welfare we would look almost as bad as a third world country with starving poor and an out of control homeless problem. All of us benefit from NOT being in that situation AND all of us benefit from many other government programs that keep our food, water, air, and workplace safe. We benefit from government programs that build and maintain interstates and U.S. roads, regulate telecommunications standards/frequencies, and enforce criminal law, etc. etc.

            The redistribution of wealth to the top 1-2% has been happening for decades and accellerated in the current decade thanks to the Bush tax cuts.

          • Ron

            we are rapidly becoming a 3rd world country if you would just open your eyes! Those programs that we all benefit from are good programs that i help pay for..not your gov’t..it comes from my tax money!!!! Your entitlement programs along with the aforementioned programs benefit those who do not want to work, OR PAY TAXES, so we the people pay for them and yet they get the benefits …and more…. of these programs i help pay for!!!! And you believe that is ok!! Capitalism is a good thing and works or we would not be the greatest country on earth..it is the greed in man that is destroying what we have and certain men have evil in their hearts and want power over people, like our gov’t, that is destroying this country…and Obama has helped redistribute this wealth…mostly to the evil men i speak of and pittenz to your friends on welfare!!! Amazing how you feel it is our gov’t that pays for all these programs… and finally you let it out that of course it is all Bush’s fault. It will be fun when the time comes to see how you libterds explain why you are standing in a bread line still looking for handouts and still saying it was all Bush’s fault!!!

          • Doc Sarvis

            You gotta read more carefully. What President gave the wealthy a large tax break??? I think President Bush even takes credit for that for some reason. He also did this while throwing our country into two wars he put on the credit card.

        Unfortunately, George H. Bush seemed to be the biggest fan of a One World Gov’t.
        Do you recall his rantings about “The New World Order” and his “thousand points of light”.
        Talk about a loss in sovereignty of nations!
        How is a U.N. gov’t going to serve any needs of anyone in humanitarian perspectives ?
        Case in point: The U.S. Marines ended hunger in Somalia in one year while deposing a warlord and his thugs. Heroes, to say the least !

        THEN THE U.N. took over and F–d it all up, even allowing Al Qaeda to take hold of the new regime, and the people suffered yet again. It became a despotic trash heap. Remember the movie “Black Hawk Down” ?
        The U.N. is a useless appendage of biblical proportions. I believe it is the 8th king that occasionally rears it’s ugly head, as described in the book of Revelation chapter 17, or “The Apocalypse” if you are Catholic.

    This is how the POtuS in the Oval Office operates, Crystal has it right and it’s just another buffalo job by a con artist. Yes he has exec power and he misuses the law and circumvents the Constitution at every opportunity, he abuses his ties with your lacking representatives and avoids the SCOTUS by obstructing the law.
    He is not teflon, he is a crooked clown who is making hay while the sun shines, he is flirting with the precipice and the odds he plays will catch up with him. There will be a major flaw, this last round made him fewer supporters and his losses were great, in effect he exposed himself, he was found to be ugly, small minded and now if the Conservatives have the smarts they will have a grip on his jersey……

    There’s an easy solution to this sort of problem; a way to stop these crimes.

    It’s the idolatrous political “party” system itself which permits our otherwise public SERVANTS to indulge them selves in interest-conflicted divided loyalties, and so to metaphorically slip from the tethers of oversite we should be keeping them on.

    Unless we eliminate political parties, the salesmen in government will destroy the country.

    Politicians don’t represent the people – they only represent their parties. And their parties only represent those who pay them – who happen to be the exact same people for each party.

    So ALL politicians are only treasonous sales-puppets, foisted on us by their corporazi sales-masters. Their real job is to sell us all out by selling off our country to the highest bidders – usually by buying our enemies’ money to fund their own pet projects. The faster the turnover (more sales per minute) the more quick profits, even at low-low fire-sales prices. It’s a race to the bottom.

    So, let’s just FIX DEMOCRACY! And here’s how: If we just hold 2 quick, back-to-back elections each time (the first, as usual, to hire the worker’s pool of our Public SERVANTS from our districts, and the second where WE ALL appoint them DIRECTLY to their cabinet portfolio positions) then we eliminate their self-interested conflicts of loyalty-dividing political “parties,” (which always only “party” at our direct expense, anyway,) forever!
