Bottoming out

So Kerik's out. One thing you can be sure of: it wasn't his idea. No doubt he faced the choice of withdrawing or being withdrawn -- because nothing in his long history of self-promotion indicates that he'd fall on his sword for anyone.

Frankly, I'm astounded. The Bushies finally came up with a nominee so sleazy, even this gang of whores couldn't brazen it out.

The following item from the Business Journal illustrates just how gullible the American electorate has become. People are actually stupid enough to believe propaganda put out by their employers. No wonder employees are getting royally screwed.

More than 11 million voters say their employers were the source of the "most credible" information they received during the 2004 election campaign.

That's according to a post-election survey conducted by Public Opinion Strategies for the Business Industry Political Action Committee. BIPAC worked with employers to provide employees with 40 million messages about voting, issues and candidates during the campaign.

The survey also found that 53 percent of voters wished their employers would provide them with more information about issues.

One thing I can tell you for sure: I grew up in a SC mill town where the plants were unionized, and there is no way in hell those textile workers would have fallen for this kind of crap. They knew that management does NOT look out for the interests of employees. Quite the contrary, in fact: the interests of management and workers are for the most part diametrically opposed.

Get this straight: Management's goal is to get as much work as possible out of as few employees as possible while paying them as little as possible.

And if you think the management is looking out for you, you're an idiot.
