1. Thank you. I hope Mitt at least served a purpose

in making more people aware of how these private equity firms operate and destroy people's lives. I'm glad the workers stood up to them, but so sorry that pursuit of the almighty dollar trumps humanity and any sense of the common good for these worthless, paper pushing, money grubbing bastards.

My god, how do you fight immoral business tactics like these?

2. How about the compensation of these six CEOs and other senior management?

I suppose they all would have been lavishly rewarded for their failures.

4. Didn't the current CEO get his salary increased from $750K

to 2.5 Million WHILE they were arranging for this newest bankruptcy? ANd senior management had their pay increased 80%?

What fucking assholes.

3. Not to mention evolution of people's tastes -- i.e., the marketplace . . .

Which makes their (really awful) products just not competitive anymore.
