I received an email recently that claims Wal-Mart senior management has been calling mandatory meetings for the company's employees in which the employees are told they "cannot" vote for the Obama-Biden ticket "or any other employee-friendly, union-friendly candidates for political office". It's not an urban legend, according to the sources I checked.
This makes me so angry I just boil. When it comes to the Constitution, I am a rabid supporter.
I realize that calling myself a radical CEO is not going to come as a big shock to at least some of you. ITI humor being what it is, we've had buttons, t-shirts, bumper stickers, etc. for decades that say such things as, "Member - Little old ladies' quilting circle and terrorist society". When the attack of 9/11/2001 happened, I made sure to buy a new t-shirt with this on it. I'm sure you're not surprised..
I read in the news yesterday where Wachovia Bank lost $8.9 BILLION last quarter - mainly in the mortgage idiocy, apparently - and summarily laid of 6,340 people without so much as a 'by your leave'. 6,340 people is just about 50% of the population of the town where my company - Indian Maid Products, Inc. - is headquartered. Gives a person pause, doesn't it? Certainly does me..
