"...it's not the training to be mean but the training to be kind that is used to keep us leashed best." ~ Black Dog Red

"In case you haven't recognized the trend: it proceeds action, dissent, speech." ~ davidly, on how wars get done

"...What sort of meager, unerotic existence must a man live to find himself moved to such ecstatic heights by the mundane sniping of a congressional budget fight. The fate of human existence does not hang in the balance. The gods are not arrayed on either side. Poseiden, earth-shaker, has regrettably set his sights on the poor fishermen of northern Japan and not on Washington, D.C. where his ire might do some good--I can think of no better spot for a little wetland reclamation project, if you know what I mean. The fight is neither revolution nor apocalypse; it is hardly even a fight. A lot of apparatchiks are moving a lot of phony numbers with more zeros than a century of soccer scores around, weaving a brittle chrysalis around a gross worm that, some time hence, will emerge, untransformed, still a worm." ~ IOZ

The Ass Clown Spake

Has this clown ever worked a non-legacy job in his miserable, air wasting, fat cheeked existence?

He "muses:"

"Voicemail, cell phones, and email mean you don’t need as much administrative support staff to run an organization so the people formerly employed filling out little message cards go do something else with their time and overall production increases."

No, no, no.

No, you assclown and hipster bespectacled ignoramus.

"Voicemail, cell phones and email mean" that your nepotism and ass kissing promoted gang of martinets and harridans administrative staff get to harass you by "Voicemail, cell phones and email" as well as in person. The boss group doesn't get smaller. It gets more ways to make life miserable for those who work under them.

You fucking nitwit shit head.

Get a real job, already. Get dirt on your hands, or something. Get fucked, for all I care.

Dude is so self-impressed that there are only 2 things he cares about:

eating more

seeing his name / writings published more

The former category seems linked to an idea that bigger is better. Apparently Haaaahvaaaahd parchment display ain't cutting the mustard. Who needs mustard anyway when you're aiming for Jabba the Hutt status? Mustard is calorie empty, ranch dressing and mayonnaise are the way to go!

His commentary is more sinister than it at first appears when you consider that production is a ratio of the cost of inputs to the value of outputs. A company can increase productivity by creating the exact same products at the same scale as before simply by cutting wages.

Maybe I am tilting at windmills here and am wrong in this assumption, but I think most people, perhaps even Yglesias, do not think of productivity like this. They think of productivity as a net positive to all parties - like if you give a carpenter a hammer instead of a rock to drive nails, he is more productive and has an easier job.

Ugh. Had solid reply to you both. Pasted yggie picture instead of copying it, instead.

I suck.

I would venture to speculate that Yggie has never picked up anything heavier than a nine iron in his wildly over-privileged life. But then, there's lots of reasons to despise the pwoggie Mandarin class.

Charles,

Vanity doesn't get the recognition it deserves, as a primary human motivator.

Justin,

You're right. If Yggs had ever actually had to "productively" employ staff to meet his portion of an EBITDA AoR, he'd see "productivity" for what it was: using people for longer, harder work, with less compensation, in wages and benefits. Never mind the inter-industry addiction to "sales increase, in percentages and totals, over last year, this date."

Alan,

At least the original Mandarins and Brahmin castes could blame God for their esteemed state. Whom does Yggie have to cover his legacy leg up? Democracy?

Respect to you all,

Jack

Heh heh heh. Right you are, Jack.

Maybe his girth motivation will result in a Fatty Arbuckle fiasco. Of course this assumes a tiny underage girl will agree to go with Yggie to some room with a closing door... which seems highly implausible. Hence, self-gratification.

Thanks for the reminder of why I stopped reading this befuddled, willfully obtuse, Harvard-educated fool. Better thee than me.

Wait long enough and sooner or later we'll find Yggie blaming the pwogs all-purpose fave-rave evil Blofeld-like political mastermind - Ralph Nader
