They can thank a rich CEO for that ability
People on the left love nothing better than to be able to slather on their vitriolic paint with the widest brushes they can find.
All corporate Chief Executive Officers are evil, none have ever earned the money they’ve made in life, and therefore it must be taken from them forcibly. This seems to be their doctrine, their belief system, and their excuse for compulsory redistribution of the earnings of the rich. Without inciting envy, there would be no will to steal from successful people, so the leftists and statists hurriedly stoke the green flames of jealousy and keep them hot, as they are now doing with the shenanigans on Wall Street.
Steve Jobs passed away, his body ravaged by cancer since 2004, and this sets up a conflict for many on the left. While some are angry that Jobs had the nerve to pass away and “steal” the media spotlight from their inane protest, a protest that would have little or no coverage were it not for many of the innovations Steve Jobs was responsible for, they still harbor an inbred hatred of the rich CEO.
What to do?
There are going to be plenty of tributes for Steve Jobs coming out in the next few days, many have been written since he stepped down from Apple as CEO, and you can read more about his life here, but probably the best tribute to Steve Jobs would be the video below, in his own words [transcript of his speech can be found here];
“If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” – Steve Jobs
