It’s easy to be a dictator. It’s easy to be a feudal landowning corporate head – and autocratic leader. It’s easy to be a plantation owner. Snap your fingers and it gets down. Otherwise, “off with the head.” Mass genocide by Hitler and Stalin. Republican president Herbert Hoover calling upon Douglas MacArthur to shoot on American men, women, children. Republican president Nixon with his National Guard shooting upon college students. It’s easy. No sooner commanded, then it’s done.
Lee Iacocca, in his books, outlines the skills of leadership. He is not the only one. It takes skills to get the job done by working with people, rather than merely snapping a finger, then placing those who do not follow commands out on the street. Iacocca’s latest book (2007), Where Have All the Leaders Gone? is a reminder about the inadequacy of today’s leaders. Oh, Mr. Iacocca had to deal with unions, too. And he has some things to say about how unions have come up lacking. But his main concern is the inability of today’s leaders to deal with unions.
Today’s leaders prefer to take the easy way – the lazy way – out: get rid of them. Today’s leaders are lazy cowards who lack the skills to be able to lead effectively – while they work corporate short-term goals to their benefit – rip off the companies. Today’s American leaders are the highest paid in the world, but condemn the American workforce for being the highest paid.
Wake up American Middle Class to the ways of the lazy cowardly leaders today. These so-called leaders have no pride in their nation and they are lazy bums. They are cowards (have I said that before?), unwilling to face a competitive market place, while screaming at the American people about the need for a competitive market place. They prefer the lazy man’s approach: create monopolies which control prices and labor. In this way, they can live a lazy life with few concerns – garnering huge sums of money in the process. Wake up, America, to the lazy cowards in the corporate board rooms… to the lazy cowards who head up Fox News in order to control your minds… to the lazy cowards – Dick Armey, Mel Martinez, and others who control banks and the minds of the tea sippers. Wake up, America.
