Today’s MBA requirements

Paraphrasing President Nixon: “I am not a CEO.”

I am not even a petty officer, and there’s nothing petty about crooked CEOs. The colleges granting MBAs carefully teach them Music 101 features songs like, “Look Away, Look Away,” “Everybody’s Doing It, Doing It,” “No More Money In The Bank, No More Options Left to Yank,” “Brother, Can You Spare A Million?” and “This Little Piggy Went to Market.”

Ethics 101 teaches do others because nothing is due unto others.

Writing 101 features quandary reports and semi-animal reports: Dot all the I’s and double cross every employee.

Speech 101 stresses how to look someone straight in the eye and lie with the icy calm that befits a CEO from Greedland.

Our politicians should punish these crooks and force them to sell a mansion or two for restitution. But our politicians are too busy playing politics: roll out the barrel (pork that is) and spin the blame. When I was a kid, the term “honest politician” was redundant. Today it’s an oxymoron. The only honest politician I know is John McCain, and he’s not a politician. Even Ross Perot, who seemed to be an honest politician, is neither honest nor a politician; he can’t see where his company did anything wrong. Boy, could I show him some charts.

Enough is too much these CEOs have bitten off more than they could bite with the result that so much money is stuck in their mouths that they are unable to answer any questions.

I am so angry that I wrote this letter. If you are also angry, please write your letter. If enough of us write, maybe someone in Congress will hear our voice and do the right thing.
