Oh for **** sakes I am sick of hearing this ****. The economy sucks it has a trillion dollars in assets vaporize. The work isn't out their. The self employment options limited. I know plenty of hard working inteligent people with profesional degrees and certs that are so vastly under employeed its not even funny.

Just saw this up on the old facebook
So, imagine that the company you work for held a poll, and asked everyone if they thought it would be a good idea to put a soda machine in the break room. The poll came back, and the majority of your colleagues said “Yes”, indicating that they would like a soda machine. Some said no, but the majority said yes.
So, a week later, there’s a soda machine. Now imagine that Bill in accounting voted against the soda machine. He has a strong hatred for caffeinated soft drinks, thinks they are bad for you, whatever. He campaigns throughout the office to get the machine removed. Well, management decides “OK, we’ll ask again” and again, the majority of people say “Yes, lets keep the soda machine.”
Bill continues to campaign, and management continues to ask the employees, and every time, the answer is in favor of the soda machine. This happens, lets say… 35 times. Eventually, Bill says “OK, I’M NOT PROCESSING PAYROLL ANYMORE UNTIL THE SODA MACHINE IS REMOVED”, so nobody will get paid unless management removes the machine. What should we do???
Answer: Fire Bill and get someone who will do the fucking job.
Bonus: Bill tells everyone that he was willing to “Negotiate”, to come to a solution where everyone got their payroll checks, but only so long as that negotiation capitulated to his demand to remove the soda machine.
Bill is a fucking jackass.

This popped up on my FB the other day. I told the poster to reconsider the situation with all of the guys voting for the soda machine, and all the gals voting against it. Then vice versa. Bill was still a jackass, but I think I made my point.

It also seems that your next Head apparently warned against the excesses that led to the collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac...and didn't get anywhere.
Hmm, it looks like the financial meltdown may have been avoidable.
Feel free to shoot this down.
If the guys outnumber the girls so be it.

You do have a point, but, as you say, Bill is still a jackass. There is no way to explain this that doesn't make the people doing this not jackasses, even if their complaints are legitimate ones.
