    Re: French deemed 'too lazy' for Swiss recruiters

    Rather than sniping at the work ethic of French workers, perhaps Maurice Taylor could focus on such matters as fully funding his company's pension funds. From its own 10-K report from 2012:

    Titanís projected benefit obligation at December 31, 2012, was $139.1 million as compared to $112.0 million at December 31, 2011. The Companyís defined benefit pension plans were underfunded by $60.9 million at December 31, 2012.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    How does that make any difference in what I said? You've got your anecdotal evidence, I've got mine, and neither proves anything. Maybe you just suck as a supervisor.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Don't forget stupid and useless. All those comedies who make fun of management doing absolutely useless stuff are so off base and have absolutely no truth to them at all, and that is why people find them so insightful and humorous.

    Yeah, it has to be because I hate private business and not because there are a ton of really useless people out there. That is totally it. BTW, i do have to ask, are you taking this personally for some reason like perhaps you are middle management?

    "They" being the French government. A large percentage of the French populace was heavily involved in the resistance.

    And that's the piss poor attitude I'm talking about. And you wonder why Mexicans are taking your jobs.

    If you were right, then there's no way the United States could be the most powerful economy in the world.

    Getting an education and acquiring a job in an office, wearing a suit and tie doesn't make one lazy.

    .... "your" job? That implies it was yours to begin with. The job isn't yours at any point. It's the employers. He basically lend it to you until you are of no more use. Then they lend it to somebody else.

    Mexicans are taking our jobs because they'll work for $2 per hour. Mexicans aren't any more ambitious than Americans.

    We're not the largest economy because of management. We're the largest economy because of consumerism.
