Corporate America is full of Idiots

After being bailed out by us (Tax Payers) it seems that common sense is obviously not apparent among certain finance and insurance execs across the country. Not only is AIG one of the main constituents in the bewildered US and World economy during this tumultuous time, but they are simply some of the most dumbfounded collection of people I have ever heard or read about.

What drives me insane is the Media and Journalist's in this country fail to address, regardless of what is "legal" and "it wasn't stipulated in the bail out bill." How about plain old common sense? You have been funded by the taxpayers and then you give your execs who caused this financial mess a multi million dollar bonus? Are you kidding me? The bill that was passed by the previous administration did not have a clause to restrict bonus payments? Ummm.. of course not, because we expect one the worlds largest insurance company's to utilize "common sense" and not pay bonuses, but "plough back" (an old school business term to re invest in your company) into the firm.

Now AIG wants to file a law suit against Countrywide for employing a lapsed mortgage application system, which allowed people to qualify for fatal mortgages. What the hell is going on here? There is no term to explain the actions of AIG, but simply, what a bunch of "Dick Heads." I hope AIG is bailed out again and when the government takes full control of AIG's assets and operations, the CEO and other execs are paid 5% of their salary an forced to work two/three jobs to keep up with their financial obligations. Then they can default on their Yacht, Car and Mortgage payments. In addition, unable to fund their 20 year old mistresses lifestyles, sorry girls, got hook somewhere else. Where are these poor girls going to run to now?

As I wrote several months ago, the bailout cry began and continued with several companies looking for the same thing. Back then I said, there will be flaws and more debt will be uncovered.. so it is my friends. How do we get the word out for people to comprehend that the majority of the public and corporations in this country are run by complete idiots who are corporate slaves addicted to their pathetic mobile devices, waking up at 11pm to shoot emails, when the receiving person is not even in their office? Dorks, Nerds and Losers who have never enjoyed the simple pleasures in life have to make it in the Corporate world, then believe money can get you everything... WRONG.. now they are learning rapidly..

Yeah I know this is not related to my usual theme of blogging, but I had to get this off my chest.. :)

Oh dear poor Man City, what did you expect??

No world record transfer fee broken..

Sorry Manchester City, after emulating Chelsea, or more like, trying to emulate Chelsea, you failed to break the world record transfer fee for AC Milan ace, Kaka. Did you honestly think he would? Why would he? 

I have no problem with Man City and their new wealth and check book because it's great for Football (Soccer). Seriously though, what player unless you are only driven by financial motives, in their right mind would go to Man City? They currently sit in 11th place, 4 points above the bottom team. Yes, they are in the UEFA cup, barely, but why would any top players go for a team who is no where near competing for the league, Champions League spot or even in the Champions League? 

They are trying to emulate Chelsea, but everyone seems to forget that for at least 10 years before the "Russian Revolution" Chelsea were always in the top 5 and competing for the Champions League and actually beat Liverpool to get into the Champions League, in the summer of the 03/04 season, before Roman Abramovich purchased the club.

Kaka, made his decision, based on his instincts and common sense. Man City have a LONG way to go, before they will be considered a "Big Club" in England, and the world. What I've enjoyed is that Kaka was not blinded by the 500k a week salary, knowing that the quality of players, fans, and city he currently plays in, is far more prestigious than Manchester City.

Ronaldo couldn't skip around the center barrier?!?

From Manchester:

Cristiano Ronaldo crashed his Ferrari today, and escaped unharmed. The $130,000 vehicle was mangled after Ronaldo hit the center barrier on his way to training. 

Ronaldo, #1 rated footballer (soccer) in the world who dances and haunts opponents defenses obviously can't control his Ferrari. I of one am glad the poor kid did not get hurt, but I'm not sad for his loss of finances or Ferrari. Recently named the 11th richest person in English football, I'm sure he'll be looking to go the dealership on Saturday before Sunday's crunch match with Chelsea! (A small injury to keep him out of that game would have been nice).

It's ok Cristiano, you'll buy another Ferrari! Enjoy your training session today mate!

India's Gaming Up!!

FX Labs and Eros International are releasing a game based on the action film "GHAJINI." The movie stars Amir Kahn, not the most prominent Actor in Bollywood, but he has enough clout and talent to still woo audiences.

The PC based, platform game will be the first of it's kind in India. Not to mention that this has been coming for a while, but look for the graphics and technology behind this to be astounding. Where are we outsourcing most of our tech jobs??? Yup, expect them to make the Ghajini game with the same sort of enthusiasm.

In the next coming years, the billion dollar Bollywood industry will be able to completely package and optimize a movie project. I had an idea or was it a dream about Shah Rukh Kahn alongside one our prominent Hollywood actresses. Integrate brands into a Bollywood flick and activate POS opps through direct purchase or POS in the interactive environment.

Q & A: Who is doing this kind of full packaging, and is there a SWOT analysis?
