Angry Teambuilding my ***

I couldn't believe this when I saw it. Surely, *surely* a major corporation wouldn't shell out for some of their executives to do this ****. I'm a little curious who decided this was a good idea, and if perhaps we can gut him, skin him alive and cut his head off for the amusement of his colleagues instead.

The PROBLEM is, they will probably have plenty of AV on hand. I wish one of these bastards would get killed. Here's hoping that whoever gets tagged has a severe allergy.

Aside from the obvious evil of killing these snakes for no good Goddam reason at all, it's a clue to a deeper essential evil inherent in these Brainwashing & Indoctrination retreats cloaked with the title "Team Building". The word team as it relates to the corporate workplace should raise some questions. Without quoting too much Karl Marx I think it is important to see that most "teams" consist of a collection of frontline underlings that actually get the job done (the players) and their supervisors (the coaches). The difficulty with this sports analogy is that it assumes that the players and coaches are on the same side, in reality their interests are opposing. The simplest illustration of that is a supervisor's perpetual quest to get the most work done for the least money. The workers show up to make a living and therefore are interested in getting the most money for the least amount of work. They are therefore not on the same side and not on the same team. The team the coaches are after personlizes the goals of the coach at the expense of their own and the other players. Bottom line, being on the team means cooperating your way out of a job. If you play on the coaches team you play against your own and winning for them can be translated to mean that many players will become obsolete, afterall their goal is to get more done for less. Ok enough ranting for now, sorry, I hate corporate BS, particularily when it kills snakes as well as jobs.

I wouldn't say that exactly I've just been screwed over by evil corporations enough to know what it means when they talk about team work: you work harder but shouldn't expect more money. LYING CAPITALIST SWINE! sorry, I said I was gonna stop ranting before I really get on a soap box so I will. sorry, I have a problem

the capitalists have studied Marx as well as the socialist/communists have, if not better. they use the media to keep us looking at each other in fear instead of them as the root cause of misery

I fired off an email on one of my server accounts saying that our company wouldn't be using their services this year due to their supporting of the rattle snake round up... they had to ask "is it because we're afraid of snakes". lol

Hello,
The states are not a "real version of the simpsons down here" as you put it. You seem to think that americans are the only ones out to make a buck. I came to this site because someone from CANADA suggested i take a look at it. I am from the states. I see alot of rude comments floating around about americans on this forum and I have to say that those of you that are ignorant enough to post such nonsense need to grow up. We don't comment on Canadians in our forums, you shouldn't be doing it here. Its rude!

Hello,
This was just an example. I see alot of "american comments" throughout this site. I am not singling out anyone in particular. I am glad you are all proud canadians, you should be. I just don't like the american comments. I find them very rude and unneeded. I am an american, and proud of it.

This is the only other one I can rember posting other then the above one
"I think its great canada is actually starting to show that we are are not push over versions of americans. Who cares what america thinks of us. They still will buy boat loads of natural resources from us. Hopefully our government will continue they way it has just started to and refuse to allow the states to control us anymore. we have the power (pun intended) its time for us to step to the plate and use it for once"

I dont think that really made fun of america in anyway. it didnt say you were evil or anything but it does say america controls our economy and many of our resources both are true. your Govenment has more power over us then our own government as far as money goes so its isnt a attempt to offend you i am just stating the Facts thats all Canada has been pushed around by america and not done anything many times
