Workplace suicides cause ChiComm's to 'see the light'

Workplace suicides cause ChiComm's to 'see the light'

Have you become more keen to the number of workplace murders and suicides taking place in these United States lately? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, homicides in the workplace have held steady from year to year (526 for 2008 and 521 for 2009), while the suicide rate on the job was a horrifying 237 for 2009.

Amazing statistics but these suicides CAN be stopped! Surveys reveal most people would rather speak to a clergyman than a therapist or psychologist. It strikes me as sad how quickly ministers and grief counselors are called-in AFTER someone "goes postal." You don't hear many screaming about "separation of church 'n state" at times like that, I've noticed. I contend the ministers must be allowed within the confines BEFORE someone pulls a trigger.

Thank God, everyone is okay at the Discovery Communications building in Silver Spring, Maryland where, for nearly four hours Wednesday afternoon, September 1st, James J. Lee held three people hostage at gunpoint inside with what appeared to be explosives strapped to his body. His rambling demands included changing Discovery's programming to add more shows warning against "giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution" and stopping shows that are "advertising weapons of mass-destruction." Lee also wanted Discovery Channel to "find solutions for unemployment and housing." He continued, "Saving the environment and the remaning [sic] species diversity of the planet is now your mindset. Nothing is more important than saving them. The Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels. The humans? The planet does not need humans."

Apparently, Lee had an "awakening" after watching Al Gore's environmental propaganda film, ''An Inconvenient Truth." When negotiations failed to placate Lee, police shot and killed him, thereby granting him his wish for one less human on Earth.

In China, in the aftermath of over a dozen employee suicides and several more attempts where employees were leaping from their campuses, Foxconn Technology - a major supplier to Dell, Apple and Hewlett-Packard and makers of the popular iPhone - has been forced to cope with a wave of bad publicity at home and overseas. The company has now hired sociologists, psychiatrists and Buddhist monks to advise the company’s managers and counsel its assembly line workers.

Buddhist monks? Yes, even the ChiComm's are seeing the light! The need for Workplace Chaplains is now, officially, more apparent than ever before. My thanks for adding credence to my cause!

At least China's "getting it," folks: there's no natural answers to spiritual problems. I wish more American businesses would "get it," too.

Every blessing,
