Ginni is a bigger fuckup than John Akers. She and her cronies are fucking pirates running IBM like it's a stolen treasure box and they will personally enrich themselves until there's nothing left. Roadkill 2015 was the plan and everyone knew it was 100% bullshit. At this point all they can do is fire everyone who's not an executive, in the US, re incorporate in a developing nation and sell off the entire company piecemeal. IBM is a poorly run investment fund that simply buys and sells smaller companies to dig as much cash out of them as possible then tossing them away.

Paying someone to take a division off your hands? Are you fucking serious? THAT's better than simply taking that money and investing it into the division? Holy the server division just sold to Lenovo must be happy. They'll have a viable business with actual jobs whereas IBM is too busy borrowing money to buy back stock price with no revenue to pay off the debt.

Whew. I was worried there for a moment. We can have imams actually scream for genocide and call for people in Britain to kill infidels and topple the entire nation and that's entirely fine. In fact we can allow people to illegally sneak into the country, illegally get national benefits, commit crimes and do all those other things and THAT's subject to muttering approval. But bitch slapping someone on twitter will get you locked up.

And oh by the way, the gang that raped 1,400 kids over a ten year people with local police protection is still openly out and about.

They announced several thousand job cuts at the same time that every job board today lists hundreds and hundreds of 'openings' but when you apply for them you get a response that the job doesn't exist. And tomorrow is the same thing, and so on. Cisco is a half-tarded company like all the rest that doesn't know from one minute to the next what it's doing and none of the stove pipe orgs know what the other stove pipes are up to. Long story short they're going to appease institutional investors by massively cutting the US workforce and moving it to Asia. Quality will suffer and no one will care. Any day now Cisco will turn into IBM which is little more than an investment fund that buys and sells other companies.

I feel for you, dude. I lived in NE Austin for 12 years, but last year I moved to NW Austin. We just got sick and tired of being ignored by the city. I hope the new district plan will improve things for you. My suggestion is that you really pester your district representative as much as you can to improve things.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing for money.
