In essence, what Diamond is doing is what I have been PREACHING for years. Advancement through EDUCATION and a few dollar$.
I watched Diamond on 60 Minutes last night, and I have to say the man and what he is doing is impressive.
The DC duds should take a good look at what he is doing and follow suit. BUTT that is too easy. They want to keep getting their rocks off trying to lynch one another. In the meantime, they are accomplishing absolutely NOTHING.
I have said it for decades. Sports figures and politicians should be paid using the incentive and productivity system. I will gar-en-tee we would see a hell of a lot of difference in their performance. What the hell gives any person the incentive to work hard and produce if they get paid, wheter they do or if they don’t?? Nothing.
Smart/intelligent/people who are on the ball learn from others, whether from their mistakes or successes. I did say Smart/intelligent/people.
Diamond is definitely making a difference. He is not only turning Detroit around, he has his sights on a few other depressed cities in the country putting the $oldi where his mouth is.
In this world, there are talkers/bullshitters and then their are doers. I give Diamond the doer 3 thumbs up.
Burger King discount ‘mistake’ costs franchisee millions: ‘We screwed up’
Hey fellas and gals at Burger King – 2 + 2 still = 4. Do you mean to tell me that the heads of a corporation as large as Burger King can not do simple math?? I guess not.
Customers were able to take advantage of a deal that allowed them to buy two Whoppers at a discounted price and get fries and a drink for “value meal” prices, the Syracuse Post-Standard reports. This mistake cost the company $1.50 on every sale.
The CEO of Carrols Restaurant Group, Dan Accordino, said that the original discount was an offer for “two Whopper Jr. sandwiches for $4, two Whoppers for $5 and two Double Whoppers for $6,” according to the paper.
Possibly they had a few chips missing from their abacus when putting the special together. .
Their little slip of the pen cost the burger joint a WHOPPING 8.2 million. I am sure they will not starve as a result of their blunder. They can always whip up a few discount burgers if they get hungry.
Uncle Sam’s misguided children — Leathernecks – Devil Dogs – Jarheads – Sea going Bell Hops; all may sound derogatory to the average Joe Blow out there, but to a Marine, all the nicknames are a compliment to them and their mission.
Naturally; where else would the Corps been founded, but their second home, (slop chute) a saloon.
November 10, 1775, Philadelphia, the United States Marine Corps was established on November 10, 1775, to augment naval forces in the Revolutionary War. The recruiting headquarters was set up by Capt. Samuel Nicholas in the Tun Tavern on Water Street in Philadelphia, which is considered to be the birthplace of the Marines.
A bunch of hard hitting, two fisted drinking patriots got together and established one of the, if not, the premiere fight unit in the world. The Jar Heads are always the first ones in and the last ones out.
Not taking anything away from the rest of the armed services, all of which this country would be blued – screwed and tattooed without, but the Marine Corps, because of it hard hitting mentality, discipline and patriotism have always been the stand out among the armed services.
Starting out with boot camp. I can only speak from my own experiences; it was like dying and going to hell. But in retrospect, I would not have wanted it any other way.
I call the Marine Corps the biggest brother-hood in the world. It never/doesn’t matter where you were from – what color your skin was – who you prayed to – how much $oldi your daddy had – whether your Ma Ma was a hooker or not, we were all just Marines.
The country should use the military as an example on how well people from all walks of life can come together with a common goals and leave the prejudices at the door step.
If there ever was a fight between a black kid and a white kid, it was just a fight, not a racial issue.
The primary reason people in the military are so connected, they all have a common bond. It is called survival/watching the other guys back and he/she watches yours. In the times of combat, they all have to depend on each-other for survival. The friends that a person develops in the service are as close or closer than their blood relatives.
Whenever or wherever a Marine, former or otherwise, sees another Marine, they always acknowledge the other person with a big SEMPER FI. That is rarely the case with the other branches.
So to all the Jar Heads who are now serving or have served, thank you for your service and HAPPY 244TH. Keep up the traditions and keep yelling out Semper Fi when you see one of your own.
It is amazing to me that there are still male chauvinistic pigs running free out there that think they are god’s gift to women or that a lady has to drop her drawers to have the doors of the business world opened to them.
I would venture that many of these scumbags had a nasty relationship with their mother of some other female figure in their life and are pissed off at every female they run across.
Many of the scumbags are wolves in sheep clothing, using their powerful positions to dominate the female population. Like Harvey Weinstein. This slob could not get laid in a whore house with a 1,000$ bill.
If the business world’s leaders ever got its head out of their ass and promoted women to positions of authority as head of corporations and other high positions, that would eliminate much of the sexual harassment.
I do not suggest that unqualified ladies are pushed to the top just to fill a quota; they must be qualified for the position. Being qualified for their positions, means they deserve the same pay as the male counterparts as well.
Matt Lauer is another degenerate molester, in a long line of scumbags that forced himself on the ladies that were subordinate to him.
Some of these predators go through life undetected because the ladies they molested are afraid of being black-balled in the industries. It is about time they are being heard. Optimistically when it is time to Pay the Piper, the scumbags do not get a bleeding hearted judge or one on the take that needs a swimming pool and they get the maximum sentences.
I give the ladies out there a lot of credit for fighting for what they have coming. As far as having a women president; there have been a few stellar female leaders of countries that I would vote for in a minute.
These three ladies are living proof that a women can do the job as well as a man, if not better!!
Only a self-centered/foolish man would not admit the contributions ladies have made to the world.
I don’t know how correct she is with her estimation of what Bloomberg is capable of?? All I know is that she hit the nail on the head and echoing what I have been saying for the last three years. The executive, a judicial branch of government, and Congress — and we’re not getting anything done.
If they would devote even 25% of their time doing what they were elected for, instead of trying to execute one another, it would be a big plus. It is really disgraceful that no one can control these fools. The house is burning down and they are trimming the bushes in the flower bed.
“Bridges aren’t getting built, roads aren’t getting fixed, infrastructure isn’t getting done,” she continued, “because everybody’s so busy hating each other.”
“The parties have become so angry with each other that nothing is happening,” Sheindlin, a 77-year-old retired family court judge, whose popular TV show has been airing for nearly 25 years, observed. “The American public is paying for a very expensive system — an executive, a judicial branch of government, and Congress — and we’re not getting anything done.
The VERY UNFORTUNATE part of all elections; the candidates pull all of these preposterous commitments/platforms out of their ass, knowing they can not come across, but push them anyway. When they get into office, the country is stuck with them and their empty con for 4 years.
Does TMC really believe his party can pull garbage like this off?? Certainly not; it is all about getting them elected.
Jul 17, 2018 – In his first major speech since leaving office, former President Barack Obama endorsed the idea of providing a universal basic income.
In essence, no one is compelled to work, BUTT everyone gets a monthly check GMAFB.
People like TMC and the rest of the Snake Oil Salesmen are very dangerous people. It one thing making a promise; then through no fault of your own, it falls apart. BUTT to deliberately and maliciously bull-shit people knowing it is not feasible, those are vicious/unscrupulous FOLKS!!
Does the billionaire x-mayor of NY have a magic wand?? I doubt it. Would The Judgess give him the tap on the shoulder if he was a republican?? I also doubt that.
Giving Bloomberg the benefit of the doubt; this is what Wikipedia has on him.
Bloomberg was known as a political pragmatist and for a managerial style that reflected his experience in the private sector. Bloomberg chose to apply a statistical, results-based approach to city management, appointing city commissioners based on their expertise and granting them wide autonomy in their decision-making. Breaking with 190 years of tradition, Bloomberg implemented a “bullpen” open plan office, reminiscent of a Wall Streettrading floor, in which dozens of aides and managerial staff are seated together in a large chamber. The design was intended to promote accountability and accessibility.At the end of Bloomberg’s three terms, the New York Times said “New York is once again a thriving, appealing city where … the crime rate is down, the transportation system is more efficient, the environment is cleaner.”
I would conclude, if Bloomberg can do for the country what he did for The City, he would be a great choice for president. On the other side of the coin, a city is only one little animal to deal with, while a country is a herd of wild elephants on a rampage. Different beast all together.
