An Observation

First, some background, which serves as preface to my observation:

And now my observation:

Mr. Cool Jobs Prez has absolutely zero compunction about messing with the market, specifically because it affects a company's bottom line. But when a company's bottom line is affected, the first people to get hit (after the stockholders) aren't the owners and executives: It's the employees, who become as expendable as possible to make up the loss in profits to the stockholders (which often include the owners and executives, and very occasionally some employees).

The "game" he's playing is risking people's jobs. And I'm really annoyed that virtually no one in the media is talking about that, even as they abet his lies about what an awesome, jobs-saving deal he made with Carrier.
