The tricks these CEO´s who´ve done away with the pesky "statesmen" middlemen, are playing now are the same things they did in their busineses, the same ones that cooked the books, broke laws and caused so much misery to their employees, shareholders AND the communities we all live in AND our own damn country.
They will play the same games now for years...only as part of the package they get the UN too...and the United States armed forces AND a shot at changing our Constitution...the one that gets in their way at home when they want to do bidness...REAL bidness. It´s our fault for glorifying Donald Trumps and Millikens and all the excess of the last generation...we pumped them up and winked at their sly ways and now they have the real muscle to get the job done.
Why bribe a politician to do your bidding when he might have a pang of conscience..why not just BECOME the politician...you know damn well what your bottom line is and you´d have no qualms at all about getting your bottom greased, to hell with the people standing in the way...when did that ever stop downsizing or lay offs or termination of benefits...when?
