I don't hate Fox news. I hate the news in general. I just assumed because this is the first I am hearing of this Fox was the only one that bothered to pick it up. I apologize for that piece. I have nothing more against Fox than I do against, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, etc. They are all profit driven and as such sensationalists.
first of hearing of this? thats sad
How profit driven is local news? Looks like you are confused by cable news.
As for the comments of wasting our money. I would disagree, it is my point that the small cost of making the video causes an increase in employee moral. So while they might have wasted 6-8 hours per person, over the next year they will accomplish more because they enjoy the job more because they get to do stuff like this.
you mean the 800,000 dollars they spent making the video?
Oh man, i hope Mcdonalds, spends 90,000 dollars on me, and i will come back and flip burgers like no man has before.
It is my opinion that people make statements like your comment about wasting money our money is because some part of them believes they could do the job better than the person currently doing it. This always bothers me. Elroy, I have no idea what you do, but more than likely you do it better than I what I do. At the same time, I do what I do because I am better at it than the people I help to do it. The boss that was in charge of these people approved this video (if they hadn't they would not have won an award for it) and because they approved it, clearly that means they think it brings value to the department, organization, etc.
I can do everyones job better. That doesn't mean the taxpayers should give me 10,000,000 for it. why should the public sector get a 800,000 vacation when the private sector doesn't not do that?
If you want to discuss wasting money, lets discuss the war in Iraq. Let's discuss the never ending increase in government hand outs. Let's discuss the fact that we gave money to Big oil when they made a SHIT ton of money last year. Let's discuss the ever increasing debt ceiling. Let's discuss the cost of social security against the received benefits. Let's us discuss all of the really important debt pieces in this country. These discussions are the ones that are costing our countries BILLIONS. This video cost this country hundreds or MAYBE a few thousand dollars. The trade show at 800,000 is something different, but again, I see value in employee's coming together to work on tasks that the entire company needs to be together for.
because the topic isn't about government spending. it is a discussion about government employees blowing 800,000 dollars for something that doesn't help anyone.
"we gave money to big oil when they made a shit ton of money"
oh thought you said we should "REWARD" people so they can do better work next year.
"debt ceiling" maybe if 800,000 dollars was't blown, it wouldn't be so high.
