You have never presented what that "something" is, munch. That's the problem I have with your argument. Show me this "tangible" material, and I'll rethink my argument.

Where did you obtain these statistics from? Again, you need to provide evidence that supports your statements, or I don't have to take them seriously.

What are YOU basing that on? Because history is FULL of instances that managers get the early can.
I never said that. Show me where I said, "There's no way he gets fired."

I'm not conceding anything to you. That you would believe otherwise proves that you just don't get it.
