Protest all you want, fools: Corporate executives spend billions to protest CBS deal gone bad

So I'm standing in Times Square smoking a cigarette at 5:00 AM before I head down into the subway to catch the A Train to Harlem to meet my boss.

Every 10 seconds is an ad complaining about the CBS deal gone bad. Do you know how much that costs? Does this tell you how little a corporate executive riding to work in a limousine cares about you holding a sign?

While I'm seeing this I'm thinking about a mother working two jobs to feed her children. This country is now sick with a long term illness.

Most of our leaders work for these fat cats. They take turns doing the bidding for corporations and then pretend to care about us. But most are bought and they'll stay bought.

2. You are Standing in "T'sSQ" waiting for the "A Train" at 5:00 am...but where are you seeing

these Ads every 10 Seconds? I wanted to understand what you are saying...but, I just didn't get it. ?????

Can you add a bit more detail? I've ridden the "A-Train" but not at 5:00 a.m. ...so that might reveal if your job requires you to ride it at that time. But, I have no idea where these Ads fabout a CBS "Bad Deal" every 10 seconds are coming from...

4. Oh..Times Square has big CBS AD UP...flashing....

I got you... I wasn't sure if it was your cell phone doing it or the A-Train Subway Entrance had some Flashing thing.

I think Times Square has had Flashing Stuff all over it for awhile now...what is it about the CBS thing that's most annoying?
