Automakers in the US

November 9, 2008

This is such a SNAFU, it makes me sick.  This is the reason that I hate labor Unions.  This link kinda sums up what is happening with the United States Automotive Companies (Ford, GM, Chrysler).  If it wasn’t for the large number of jobs involved and the economy further tanking, I would say just let them fucking sink.  The Labor unions have had these companies by the balls for a long time.  If you read here, you will see that in 98′, when GM realized that they were beginning to sink, they Needed (not wanted, but needed) to make some changes to help them stay competitive.  But noooooooo, the labor unions were just worried about themselves.  They have this “Fuck the Company” mentality.  Now, these assholes aren’t going to have a job anymore b/c of these stupid ass unions.  I understand the whole concept behind these unions, and how they are supposed to look out for worker’s interests and whatnot, but come on.  They are sinking these companies.  So now, instead of having just a decent paying job instead of a higher paying job, these poor folks are not gonna have any job at all.  Personally, I’d rather have to adjust my budget down a little than have no income at all.  Guess we, the people, will have to support another group of people…Anyways

Quote of the Week

November 4, 2008

While this quote is attributed to Alexander Tytler, it is in reality unverified as to who exactly wrote/said this, but I love it all the same:

“A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”

Bill O’Reilly

November 4, 2008

What a guy.  Over the past few months, I have really come to enjoy watching, listening, and reading Bill O’Reilly.  Up until I recently got very interested in politics, I thought that O’Reilly was just a jerk because of the stuff I’d hear everywhere and the few clips I’d seen of him “confronting” people.  Then I watched him a few times.  I think that I agree with old Bill on about 85% of his arguments.  If you haven’t read his books, get them.  I have read “Who’s Looking Out for You” and “Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity”.  The message he presents is very positive and down to Earth.  It makes for some great reading, and goes really quickly.  Try it out if you haven’t already.  Anyways, back to SNL’s Presidential Bash………

Beautiful Sunday

November 2, 2008

What a gorgeous day it is today.  After getting that extra hour of sleep this morning, I woke up to temps in the 60′s, skies clear, and nothing but beautiful sunshine.  I felt I had to post something today just to appease myself.  I’ve been slacking, but it’s okay. No one reads this thing but me anyway…haha…I’ll try to write a little more later today, but for now, outside to read, drink coffee, and maybe partake in a cigarette

Joke

From an email….

A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. Weight loss program. The next day, there’s a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, ‘If you can catch me, you can have me.’ Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later huffing and puffing, he finally gives up. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lbs. As promised.
 
He calls the company and orders their 5-day/20 pound program. The next day there’s a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life. She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, ‘If you catch me you can have me’. Well, he’s out the door after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and he does his best, but no such luck. So for the next four days, the same routine happens with him gradually getting in better and better shape. Much to his delight on the fifth day when he weighs himself, he discovers that he has lost another 20 lbs. As promised. He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day/50 pound program

‘Are you sure?’ asks the representative on the phone. ‘This is our most rigorous program.’

 ‘Absolutely,’ he replies, ‘I haven’t felt this good in years.’

 The next day there’s a knock at the door; and when he opens it he finds a huge muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, ‘If I catch you, your ass is mine.’
 
He lost 63 pounds that week.

Associate yourself with men of quality if you esteem your own reputation, for ’tis better to be alone than in bad company.”                                                                                                                 –George Washington

I think that quote serves me well when I think about the associations of certain individuals….Form your own opinions on that one….Anyways

I agree, Mr. Biden

Double Standards

October 22, 2008

I was talking to a friend recently and we were reminiscing about college life.  We had some good times.  I went to school at a very small college (about 9k students on campus) called Northwestern State University.  The town of Natchitoches is one of the college towns, unlike big brother Baton Rouge to the south, where you just have to MAKE things fun.  And we did.  I was in a fraternity in college.  One of the things the Brothers of Pi Kappa Phi did every year (and still do) was to have a “slave” auction.  All of the guys came up with skits, mostly set to music, with some type of stupid dancing or something.  We had a bunch of girls come over and “buy” us if they liked us or our skit.  It was fun and everyone looked forward to auction for most of the year.  Once you were bought, you were that girls slave for the the next day.  This usually included coming over and scrubbing her floors, washing her car, cooking for her, etc. as she deemed appropriate.  This was always good natured and was actually a quite interesting way to meet girls (haha).  We werent’ the only ones on campus who did this.  I think every other fraternity did it, too.  Apparently they still try to.  I was directed to an article recently about an auction that occurred on campus.  As much as we always hated the Kappa Sigs on campus, I cannot believe that they want to kick them off campus for such a thing.  I see a definite double standard here.  Remember the movie White Men Can’t Jump?  This is about the equivalent.  No harm no foul
