My Love Is Immense
I have just a few short minutes, grabbed between my physiology midterm and the beginning of lab, to share a secret with you:
I love Mark Cuban.
It's a secret love, an unrequited love, but it's love nonetheless. I mean, who could read this and not immediately swoon?
Shareholders, there is a good chance that a CEO, who lives in a totally different world than you do is telling the media that he is doing, what he is doing, in your name. Firing those people to increase earnings by 1c per share. Its for you. Outsourcing jobs. Its for you. Making windfall profits because oil prices are skyrocketing, its for you. Paying the last CEO who just quit on you tens of millions of dollars. Its for you. Paying himself tens of millions of dollars, and negotiating a Platinum parachute. Its for you. Is this what you, as a shareholder wants ?
Sharedholders are supposed to be the owners of the company. Shareholders are supposed to select the board, which in turn hires the CEO. Shareholders are supposed to weigh in on corporate issues and direction. Are you exercising your rights as a shareholder ? Or are you a corporate Ho ?
I mean, how much more romantic can you get? Sure, a bit more attention to typing and grammar could be appreciated. But it's the thought that counts. And the thought... is awesome.
It's a pity Valentine's Day only comes once a year, because I don't want to have to wait ten long months to send the card.
