“When parents fail and miserably so, at common sense, who protects the children? Why do you think we have CPS? You should worry about more important things if you're really concerned about nanny state.”

“Bush was on vacation 932 days of his Presidency and when in Washington, he bicycled for 2 hours every day and he played golf. 932 days is almost 3 years. Obama has taken 82 days of vacation so far. If you want to post, try to Google some facts, it's easy.”

“Question: This is logical If you have a name like Quentin Calibresa or something unique, but what if you have a real common name like Matt Edwards or George Smith, etc”

“I always thought my name was fairly unusual, but there is someone in my state department of agriculture who has the same one.”

pete kistler on May 3, 2012 at 19:08:22

“BrandYourself helps you control the search results for your name. And even if you have a common name like George Smith, the other George Smith's probably aren't "optimizing" their links to show up at the top of results. So there's definitely a chance you can get some of your own links onto your first page of results. I'd recommend that you sign up for an account, submit and boost 3 links about yourself, then wait 2-6 weeks to see if they you start overtaking the other links about George Smith. You can do all that for free and in about 15 minutes.”

“Being a CEO of a Fortune 50 Company is similar conceptually to being an NFL Head Coach. Think of your favorite team-would you want the coach to keep players who don't perform? Would you rather Bill Belichick or Mike Tomlin keep an overpaid, lazy, underperforming lineman, or get a younger one in the draft who's motivated and costs 1/2?”

“You're assuming that some sort of meritocracy is used to choose CEOs and that they and their cronies don't set their own salaries.

CEOs can be adequately replaced. Companies in other countries have no problems finding better CEOs while paying 5% of what American companies do. But shareholders in those countries actually have the right to influence the operation of the company, unlike US corporations where many company have "1 share" rules. One share voted in favor of what the board wants wins the election. Up until Jobs died, Apple used to elect its board that way. What, you thought those proxy cards actually meant something?”
