Capitalism Fails In Greater Kansas City Area: Sprint CEO Dan Hesse 'Earns' $49 million



Somewhere there are people who still believe lies about the merits of hard work.

Sprint CEO Dan Hesse had a $49 million payday last year

There's mostly celebration in that newspaper article . . .

Meanwhile the Wall Street Journal offers a more accurate picture of the telcom in turnaround and now slave to new Japaneses bosses.

WSJ: With Shouts and Hugs, Sprint Boss Masayoshi Son of SoftBank Drives Turnaround

SoftBank Chief Executive Masayoshi Son Pushes Sprint to Shed 'Loser' Mindset in Mobile-Phone Industry

The punchline here is that a great many barely middle-class white dudes mistakenly think they might have something in common with this industry player besides pigmentation which (thankfully) profits fewer and fewer people nowadays.

What $$$ is Overland Park giving away in annual property taxes just to keep those ugly buildings!

Let KCMO have them, and their crappy local coverage.

News reports say that Softbank's Japanese big cheese (maybe big tofu, I dunno) absolutely detests having to fly all the way to Kansas. They have a branch in Silicon Valley that looks and acts more and more like their U.S. nerve center. The kanji is on the wall, dudes.

What SoftBank has purchased is a Corporate Panda. Like the Panda, Sprint should have gone extinct years ago if were not for outside factors keeping it alive. The Panda only eats one kind of food and does not like to mate. Both factors are a recipe for extinction but there is another animal called the Human who thinks the Panda is cute and protects, houses, feeds and encourages the Panda to mate by showing it Panda porn and finding acting as a Panda dating service. Sprint too has been kept from extinction from Humans who have thrown money at it so it will survive. SoftBank should euthanize Sprint and sell of its body parts.

NO SHIT, PANDA PORN IS REAL!

The National Zoo in Washington D.C. shows their Pandas file of other Pandas mating to encourage the Pandas to get it on. When they do that they also need to play some Barry White records.
