Why does the link go to a page that has a link to see what this headline refers to? Just link the actual page, dummies.

clancifer: I can see the Libertarian crowd not finding any issues with these CEOs and their greed.


Well, Libertarians practice a sort of "no true Scotsman" philosophy as regards capitalism. Whenever capitalism manifests it's evil, ugly side, they magically reclassify it as "crony capitalism", which they then classify as statist in nature, and thus construe all the evils of capitalism as "not-capitalism".
It's an impressive bit of mental gymnastics.
It's kind of like how people like to pretend that drunken pedophile Uncle Ernie isn't really part of the family.

There's a shocker.

He's that Ayn Rand piece of shiat, right?

Yeah. The one that ran Sears into the ground.


Correlation meet causation. Sears (along with JC Penny, etc) were all destined to tank during the depression/recession. Their products aren't really better than Kohl's or Target, but cost more. If you want something nice, you still go to Mens Warehouse or whatever. They're in a shrinking, pointless market.

All that money and just look at that butchered horror!

If I were allowed to become rich, I'd just go ahead and let my face sag and wrinkle in whatever way that nature intended. These Wildenstein freak faces do NOT make you look younger. They make you look vain and creepy.

He's only been there 2.5 years. Sears has been dug in since they cut back on the catalogue just as the internet was becoming a thing. Hell, read one of their old catalogues, they had the Amazon model first. Sell everything to everyone and count on the mail.

There was an article on fark a few months ago on what a complete clown this guy is. He has every department in sears compete against each other in a hunger games style of survival of the fittest. Sales departments have to buy their stock and advertising is done by which department pays the most for the ad space, giving us good deals on tools or lawn mowers for a Mother's Day sale. He set it up so the hardware department actually makes less money by selling craftsman tools, and appliance departments make less by selling kenmore brands, so this gets held against them for performance reviews. Most of this guy's policies are geared towards making everyone compete against everyone else, so a house divided can't stand. Sears may have been dying slowly, but he's feasting on the corpse.

Pretty sure CNN, MSNBC, et al are the prime drivers of use around terms like crony capitalism. So you're arguing CNN and MSNBC are libertarians?

I always find it odd that leftists like throwing around "greed" so much. Must all be religious wackos. Greed is a religious term.

Should have waited on the last post to add these:

"Ursula Burns made headlines in 2009 when she became the first African-American woman CEO of a Fortune 500 company."

Affirmative action hires are generally unqualified and cause negative morale? You don't say.


"Forever 21 employees commented on Glassdoor that they receive minimum wage, often have to work late into the night and get very little time off."

It is almost like they're working a retail job... which are exclusively for people between the ages of 15 and 21.


"The company allegedly forced employees to reveal confidential medical information in order to be allowed sick days."

You had to bring in a doctor's note if you were sick? What does he think this is, a government job? Public school?

"One store manager on Glassdoor advised upper management to "Get over yourselves. Get rid of Mike, revamp the board, bring on all new upper management from execs, directors, and RM's. Learn to pay employees a salary to actually live on.""

Are employees dying in the stores? I don't get it.

Why just current CEOs?  Any list of the worst CEOs really isn't complete without Czarly Fiorina ;)

And it took two writers to do it!
