"Leaked Memo: The Corporate Board Rooms Fear the Occupy Movement Occupying their Board Rooms
Targeting Individual Executives"

Fey Fennie is the person navigating for the corporations on how to get through this bumpy ride...

Heres what corporate counsels, board chairs and CEOs should know.

The anger, frustration and collective voice is too large to ignore, says Fay Feeney,
a corporate board consultant who provides board chairs with advice on ways to
improve boardroom performance. This is personal and targeted to
what you earn (along with power and influence) banks are among the first
businesses to be called out, occupied and disrupted.

Fey Fennie gives these corporations a list of four things to do... One is to listen to social networks so they stay ahead of the OWS folks... She concludes by letting them know that protest spin out of control and they need to be prepared via messaging using these networks...

1. I heard a Wall St Journal Commentator last week say he believes the
Business Community is the next target after the Banks.

3. She's telling them what they want to hear
The unwashed and unworthy peasants are envious of their lofty financial and social status.

4. they brought this on themselves
by sitting on tons of cash, while depressing wages and sending jobs overseas.

by indulging in what I call The Executive Industry, where top dogs are rewarded with mega bucks for tanking companies, and sending jobs overseas. What's his face, that drove Washington Mutual into the ground, got HOW MUCH from the board of directors? Let me see, it was HOW many millions? For failure.

Herman Cain says we are all responsible for the choices we make, and if we fail, it is our fault. That logic seems to only apply to the little people, failure seems to amply rewarded in the executive boardroom.

Personally, I could give a shit about how much the old boys network pulls from the American workers, as long as wages are good and jobs are ample. But they are not, so we are fighting back, deal with it. If push comes to shove, OWS will ensure that responsibility goes both ways.

5. Good Diagnosis, Really Bad Prescription
Try again, 1%, to figure out how to save yourselves. (Clue, you are going to have to save the other 99%).

6. They are worried that the target has FINALLY been drawn on their backs.
They have spent decades and longer either killing union reps and working people (Norma Rae, union organizers, astroturf organizations that demonize and paint targets on those they don't like (fox - Palin, etc), and now that the screw is turning even a little bit they know all too well the danger of having a target painted on them.

Can they trust their security forces? Have they been subverted? Is anywhere safe? What if a disgruntled ex marine force recon sniper decides to act on the target painted on their back? What is the cops do?

They have good reasons to be afraid. Very afraid. Deathly afraid. While many people just want change, there is a large percentage that also want their blood.

And their pathetic last period hail mary pass of trying to keep spin control isn't working anymore. Fuck em with a hand grenade, if they can't get a clue (metaphorically speaking).
