    Querstion for yall:
    Health should be confidential, but health of a CEO? Moreover, if the CEO does not keep stockholders up to date on his health, it he/company accountable to stockholders? Read on...


    Heres a great little video from CNBC with some great bickering over this issue (to skip to the best: start watching about 3:30, the bickering starts about 4:10):

    The health of a CEO does matter. What matters even more is having a solid succession plan in place.

    lefties only care about their own agendas. Jobs is in trouble for not playing by their agenda.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I suspect that Jobs & Apple are playing along with the lefts adgenda. I also suspect Jobs health problem is a wee bit more than cancer if'n ya know what i mean vern.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    No....? I don't. He's had pancreatic cancer, and I suppose it has recurred. There isn't much that's "more" than cancer. :(

    no no - see - their agenda right now is one of controling CEOs their pay and their lives. Jobs is not playing along right now in that he is not giving them that control.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I'm not sure what you're talking about, but jobs has had a $1/year salary for quite some time (lived off all his stock options all these years). If you know anything about Apple, nobody wants to control his life...he is the company and everyone loyally follows him around.

    Have you been paying attention to washington lately? The LEFTIES what to control was CEOs make - where the shit - how they travel . . . . Jobs is not cooperating in that he is telling the press and the politicians to let him have privacy.

    Ya think being HIV positive or having aids might affect that ?

    I have not read anywhere any hint of that. Where have you? And what would make you think so?
