Yahoo CEO Scott Thompson pledged in a March 14 email to "lean forward" into changing the company's direction. This morning he sent another email, announcing the layoff of 2,000 employees.
Yahoo began its official release with this: "Today's actions are an important next step toward a bold, new Yahoo! -- smaller, nimbler, more profitable and better equipped to innovate as fast as our customers and our industry require."
It goes on to boast of nearly 700 million users and thousands of advertisers.Layoffs had been rumored since Thompson took over about four months ago.
In that March 14 email, Thompson emailed employees about "real change" that's coming -- an attempt to "soothe the company" during executive departures and proxy fights, as Kara Swisher wrote.

Instead of trickle down wealth creation, we now have trickle down misery and financial dislocation creation.
Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

Food, distributed by the spoonful in collective canteens according to merit, became a weapon to force people to follow the party's every dictate.

We are living Obama's hope and change. Obama wants to set a historical goal for his presidency...and he is succeeding.

I've no particular love for Yahoo--they're just as guilty as anyone for the crap they spew as "news"--but that really sucks for those 2k people who just got laid off.

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.

Just imagine if all these layoffs were announced on Bush's watch. MSM and liberal outrage would be centerstage. Hospitals nationwide are laying off thousands in advance of Obamacare...and nothing, not a peep from the usual libtards about it.
