Reply to "Say Something Completely Random And Off Topic"

I just watched a YouTube video on the problems Disney was having in the last 10 years of Michael Eisner. His best years were at the beginning when he became was hot in his early days as Disney's chairman and CEO with Frank Wells becoming COO and president. Wells tragic death in a helicopter crash in 1994 at 62 years of age gave Eisner a chance to take over full control of the company. A string of 10 years of bad business decisions found him in 2004 with 43% of withholding their proxie votes to re-elect him to the board.

Now we have president, one who was supposedly "hired" for the job for his great business experience and reputation for surrounding himself with only the best. And the result from his denials, and slowness to act and refusal to believe the scientists, and actually musing about injecting household cleaners is thousands of more deaths than there should be and thousands more that will be.

Some of Michael Eisner's poor decisions led to the building on the cheap of California Adventure and Disney Hong Kong. The failed virtual reality entertainment centers called Disney Quest and their losing the crown of best, and most profitable, animation studio. For these things he was gone from the company by 2005.

Now comes our sharp businessman president. His failings have led to the greatest financial crisis since the great depression and tens of thousands of avoidable deaths. Unless you're a pretty dense shareholder it's pretty easy to see where your vote should go.
