Here to pump you up!

Gazette staff February 15th, 2012

(In Chicken-Fried News’ best rock-star voice:) Oklahoma City, are you ready to get excited about a business seminar?

The “Get Motivated!” business seminar (billed as America’s largest) stops by the Chesapeake Energy Arena tomorrow for inspirational speeches from rich bald guys and strong women married to very rich dudes.

You can hear from former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw; former New York City mayor and alleged serial adulterer Rudy Giuliani; former first lady Laura Bush; and Mary Buffett, daughter-in-law of über-rich Warren. And did we mention in the cleanup spot is Colin Powell? His words of inspiration likely won’t include that whole misleading-the-UNabout-WMDs business. 

Also on the agenda are some less notable motivational types sure to make sales pitches for their own services.

I 2009 Colin Powell visited OU where we warned of persuing a "Terrorist Industrial Complex."  Now you might take shots at him for believing CIA intelligence, but I think the man is rather sane.  We must be conscious of how much of our economy is being driven by fear.
