Maybe, it's possible, that this covntry and its people are tired of
being rvn by vnions, crooked vnion bosses and vnion demands. Great
way to BUST vnions wide open. I like the idea of companies being rvn
by themselves withovt vnions trying to control them. GWB is pretty
smart after all! Unions were great 60 years ago. Today...not needed!

the usual "the sky is falling" malarkey. so dell can't employ americans
because it puts them at a competitive disadvantage? maybe they should be
telling all of their american customers this? of course not. they'd rather
try and con them with the illusion of support from incompetents abroad.
dells profit spike will be temporary as the long term affects of lowered
quality take hold. sell your dell stock now.

as usual, you are missing the point and again offer no alternative. you
only complain. and you do it in a way that makes you sound as if you think
that you are superior to everyone else, as if you have some heightened
awareness or insight that everyone else fails to see (referring to your
theory about being coned by dell that you feel other people are not bright
enough to make that determine for themselves). your remarks are shallow and
without merit and as such understandably force you to reduce yourself to
name calling.

Dell's Net Income:

2004 $2,645,000,000
2003 $2,122,000,000
2002 $1,246,000,000
2001 $2,177,000,000
2000 $1,666,000,000

Check out page 25 of 43:
http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/corporate/sec/prox...
to see what the execs make and how many stock options they're given.


Certainly doesn't look like Dell is going out of business! And the new
Executive Annual Incentive Bonus Plan will I'm sure mean more U.S. Dell
employees being axed so that the stock price is driven up in order for the
Execs to maximize the value of their stock options.

I also like the statement in one of their SEC filings about them possibly
paying less taxes if their operations shift overseas or to lower tax
environments. All while around 70% of their sales is coming from the
Americas. Corporate greed at its best.

Right? Whatabout the stockholders and the profit motive, prevalent in
every country; except, that is, except North Korea, North Vietnam,
Cuba and some remaining commie lovers in Russia. Big Bonuses....?
Corporate Greed? Sure, the government should run every business. How
great would that be? One gives his socialogic and political views
away without even realizing it. If I were you, I'd try to hide it! Oh,
and vote for GWB!! Forget your upbringing and think for yourself for a
change.

Nonsense, vnions are needed more today than 30 years ago. Workers need
some economic leverage to covnter the federal govt & companies, which
are cvrrently working hand in glove to screw the workers, e.g.,
declining wages, declining benefits, declining job secvrity, etc.

Who said ANYONE is OWED job with ANY benefits? Are yov that lazy
that yov can't provide for yovrself? Who said that it's corporate
America's responsibility to provide healthcare for yov? Jvst like a
vnion......yov can't fend for yovrself, so yov have someone else do
it. My company provides healthcare, bvt I declined, why? Becavse I'm
svper rich? No, becavse I shopped arovnd and fovnd something for
arovnd the same price (a little more) with LESS restrictions. I can
fend for myself thank yov very mvch. And, if the rest of this lazy
covntry wovld start to take care of themselves, instead of insisting
on the government, or corporations, we, as a whole wovld be better
off!

My point, not that yov'll have any better grasp the 2nd time than the
first, is that a vnion gives the workers some economic clovt when
negotiating with management. Think of it as leveling the playing field,
not that yov rightwingnvts want that in real life.

well, now that you've had your little breakdown do you feel better? good,
now let's get some things straight. i am a capitalist and have even owned
my own business. you seem to think (ill give you a little credit) there is
nothing in between communism and a corporately run capitalist system. there
is. it is called responsible capitalism. it involves treating your
employees properly, respecting and protecting the environment, returning a
fair return to investors. investors should not have the expectation that
their investment will be used to the detriment of all else to fill their
pockets. much of this runs against human nature for too many people and
that is the sad part. it shouldn't be how high you can float your own boat
at the expense of others (exec incentive plans). it should be able floating
the boat that contains everybody that helps the company succeed (employees).
and don't steal from your customers by substituting substandard support for
competent support just so execs can pocket millions in bonuses.

This is America. What is stopping YOU from becoming a fabulously
wealthy, overcompensated CEO?

You're on the right track, though. All you really have to do is to
envy CEOs enough, just really hate them, practice vilifying them on
Usenet EVERY chance you get, and pretty soon you'll get all their
money, as thousands already have; get yours TODAY!

easily answered, my ethics and morals. too many seem to have none.
limitless greed seems to have replaced it.

envy them? are you crazy? envy people who destroy other peoples' lives to
fill their own pockets? a sad commentary on them and you as well.

then what is keeping you from becoming a wealthy ceo that gives away all
your earning to charitable causes? the point being that your ideas may be
well intentioned but they are just wrong. you can not look back at other
points in time to compare how companies were able to succeed in the
environment of their time without considering the reality of the technology
that we have today. computers and the internet have made it possible to
route a phone call halfway around the world and have a person speaking the
same language talk a customer thought a problem. that simply wasn't
economically or technically feasible in any previous time in history. but
what is consistent is that if two guys that had the same skill set had
applied for a job that the employer would hire the cheaper one. and what is
consistent is that if your competitor has a way of producing their product
for less that proves itself successful with demonstrated revenue growth and
repeat customers then that method would be copied. you seem to take this
all personally and think that the driving force is corporate greed but i
suggest it is the consumer that drives the demand for lower prices goods and
that creative forward thinking business people make it happen because they
know if they do not the will simply wither and fade away. and you don't
seem to consider the possible good that can result from it. this seems to
be a case of fearing change, which is something that you can read about
repeatedly throughout history.
