STARVE THE BEAST Hey American consumers! Did you know your hard-earned dollars are funding corporate waste? Shopper: "They are?"
Mr. Perkins: "CEO's now earn 343 times the average worker. Doesn't sound very lean, mean, and efficient to me!"
"Expense accounts! Private jets! First-class travel! High-priced motivational speakers! Corporate retreats! All of it thick slabs of pork paid for by YOU!" "Funny how I don't bump into many schoolteachers here."
"Time to trim the fat, don't you think?" "As I like to say, I don't want to abolish bloated, corrupt corporations... i just want to shrink them down to the size where I can drown them in a bathtub."
