Gonna take you on a quick trip in the ‘Way-back Machine‘, so stick with me for a moment.
Back in 2009, I was Sales Manager for a Fortune 500 insurance company. President Obama had just begun his Class Warfare antics when, after passing his ill-advised stimulus and bailouts, he made this statement:
“You can’t take a trip to Las Vegas, or down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers’ dime…”
Even though the statement was supposedly directed at recipients of the Government handouts (TARP, etc.,..), when taken in the context of the political climate it rightfully terrified every executive in corporate America.
