Here’s a quiz: CEOs are CEOs of major corporations and assume the risk and responsibility of managing these companies because: (a) they studied really hard in high school, went to a good college, pushed books instead of drugs, and worked instead of partied, and then interned and competitively strove for promotions; or, (b) ’cause dey be lucky, yo; or, (c) sat on their butts waiting for someone to hand them the opportunity along with their unemployment and welfare checks. Sadly, according to the Ed Show…the answer evidently is not (a).
*sigh* When did I wake up to a world where Joe Smith, the high school drop out, felt he deserved a six-figure salary for driving a delivery truck? I believe this: If you don’t like your situation, change it. It’s not the fed’s job to fix you. And I’m sick of hearing people demonizing the people that CREATE the jobs and have dedicated their lives to industry and capitalism. They don’t owe us a darn thing, people. They earned it through their own hard work and effort. If you worked for them, instead of growing your own business, then politely thank them for the paycheck and reevaluate what you want to be when you grow up.
