Watch Yourself Steve

Steve Jobs is blasting teachers unions:

"What kind of person could you get to run a small business if you told them that when they came in they couldn't get rid of people that they thought weren't any good?" he asked to loud applause during an education reform conference.

I'd love to tell Jobs to keep at it, but I worry that he might make the kind of enemies that will harm all the wealth creation he is responsible for. Soon, he may have the politicians coming after him for unfair monopolistic practices in the creation and marketing of iPods.

So, Mr. Jobs, focus on things like iPod that create jobs and stock value. Otherwise, you may suffer a fate like that of Mr. Gates.
