Unclassy Lessons for the Class of 2012

May 17, 2012 by Living Liberally

As students celebrate graduation around the country,
they learn you can become a Presidential candidate
if you showed leadership bullying a peer in high school.

Graduates learn that the business world is forgiving:

and still be given another chance to lose $2 billion.

except they have ways to escape their losses
unlike people who carry student loans forever...
& this year's class has the most debt in history.    Read more

casually cavorting & corrupting their cause in Colombia.

We demand more respect from vulture capitalists,
but contend with the disrespect our military has shown
in incendiary, outrageous acts in Afghanistan.

People say government should behave like Big Business:
selfish behavior, greedy excesses & poor judgment --
maybe we've got too much corporate culture already.

Let's be a little LESS like Big Business for awhile.    Read more
