Comment why go into management? (Score 1) 312

the highly skilled engineer loves his job, the challenge that it gives him technically and the satisfaction of finding the solution and having it implemented. so go into management where it's all politics, meetings and knowing that those who were once your peers are now your staff. Who could resist such a plum job. I tried it once, never again I'd rather have a bottle in from of me that a frontal lobotomy.....

That's right, use the FUD tactic, it's worked so well up until now..... That's why some of the major Companies are bringing their operations back *onshore*, all the time wasted fixing the work done be offshore hands, plus the language barriers. Once great way to piss your customers off is when they are already upset about your product/service not functioning properly is to make them talk to somebody they can't understand, do to a thick accent

Enough said.

Very true, the Porn industry has also set the standard for VHS and Beta Max. The masses will come, if there is something they want. When Porn became more readily available due to higher transmission speeds (faster modems), then more users flocked to it. Sex sells.

Comment Make them eat their own dog food (Score 1) 601

Right, when the Lawmakers get inconvenienced or treated like the rest of us, they change the laws (or have the power/connections to get the process started) Now, let's make them give up their nice cozy pension plans and medical care plans, all taxpayer subsidized, which in many cases includes their Family members, for life. Make them use the same pool of resources the common man has, deductibles, co-pays, waiting periods. Let them see $$$ coming out their pockets, not just for the same cost of the monthly premiums we have to pay, but have them dive into their pockets when they get the prescriptions, like we do. I want to see their reaction after paying their premiums, and they now find out the have to meet their deductibles, otherwise it's *dig into your pockets again* to pay those. Both the pension plans and the medical plans are taxpayer paid, why can't we all get a sweet deal like that, it's our money?!?!? You say the Government can't run a good health care program, have a look at the Military. Not saying the men and women who serve our Country don't deserve it, I'm saying we do too, since we pay for it, ON TOP OF OUR OWN COVERAGES..... Yeah, make 'em eat their own dogfood!
