2014 has been the year of the Peter Principle (Wiki):
The Peter Principle is a concept in management theory in which the selection of a candidate for a position is based on the candidate's performance in his or her current role rather than on abilities relevant to the intended role. Thus, employees only stop being promoted once they can no longer perform effectively, and "managers rise to the level of their incompetence."We saw it first with Obama and Ebola. After a few days of 'incompetence on parade,' the country's entire leadership went into hiding and the media accepted a total gag-order. It was a crisis that Democrat politics couldn't manage, and it exposed Democrats and their like-minded bureaucrats as frauds to those who still thought otherwise. There isn't one person left who will believe anything Obama, or the CDC, has to say about Ebola. Not one.
Next up: Putin. Russia folds like a cheap pair of smuggled jeans when the price of oil fluctuates in a direction counter to their desires. Inflation, lost revenues, sanctions and a currency crisis demonstrate the utter failure of a government that embraced make-believe economics. The only question left: "Who will suffer?" Will external states like Ukraine, Poland, Georgia, Estonia and other neighbors be 'confiscated' to cover the costs of this crisis? Or, will the people of Russia be asked to 'struggle' once again for the greater good?
And now Sony. Their decision to stop the release of the movie The Interview has NOTHING to do with the terrorist threat on America's theaters. It has mostly to do with blackmail. (Also maybe a little to do with the buzz prior to a reversal and a new release date.) Un has something on Sony they do not want released. The executives at Sony, following the leadership examples of Obama and Putin, are in the fetal position sucking their thumbs.
Four messages to Un:
1. Excellent move to call for a US-NK partnership to investigate the Sony hacking. F'ing brilliant! (Yahoo finance screenshot)
2. Don't make the mistake of painting Americans with the broad brush of Obama, Sony executives and other failures who seem to always be in the spotlight. We are not all incompetent boobs.
3. A suggestion: Release every Sony item you have. Start with the Interview, if you have it. Then, once a week or so, release something else. Offer it all on a pay-per-view site. Make some big bucks. Then feed your people.
4. Whether you like it or not, The Interview will be seen.
UPDATED 12.23 1:30pm:
Mayor De Blasio: With only a few days left in 2014, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio barely made this list.
De Blasio, following his communist inspirations, was chummy with Al Sharpton during the anti-police protests. Then two NYPD officers were ambushed and murdered. De Blasio cannot walk back his comments, or erase his alliance with those who benefit from chaos, terrorism and murder. He can call for all comments to stop, and he can criticize the media for his growing problems, but these just expose him as another fraud who is far over his head.
