A prime example of how our Government is looking out for our best interests 

When Dodger stadium was first built the Government would not give final approval because there were no water fountains.  Obviously the Management wanted to sell more beer.  I suppose since the new stadium in Carson City is at a high school they can’t sell beer. 

One dollar a bottle for water is grand theft.  The concessionaire should be locked up!

What side of the fence do you come down on? 


You want MORE?

Parkinson’s Law states that in any Bureaucracy “work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.” I would go one step further and postulate that work in today’s Bureaucratic world expands to create useless jobs for all the parasites that have no useful work to do. It is all due to that four letter word that everyone is in love with, including the fictional Master Twist: MORE! Yes “MORE” is a four letter word, and a damned expensive one at that. Aside from our own personal endeavor for MORE, for which we are willing to pay, there is the ubiquitous MORE required by our Government and our “MY MORE” society. I will cite an example, give a few of the useless MORES involved and let your imagination, and your wallet, fill in the blanks. Continue reading

Second Question for the Day

Who’s your friend? 

“I can’t help but want to support my own gender, and she’s as experienced as any of the others–except maybe Joe Biden.  I would love to see a woman president, I just didn’t think it would be her.”

Jennifer Flowers telling a reported she may support Hillary. 

Do you suppose anyone really gives a good rat’s ass?

Corporate Memo

To: All Staff
Date: December 1
Subject: New “Twelve Days of Christmas” Policy

The recent announcement that Donner and Blitzen have elected to take the early reindeer retirement package has triggered a good deal of concern about whether they will be replaced, and about other restructuring decisions at the North Pole. Streamlining is due to the North Pole’s loss of dominance in the season’s gift distribution business. Home shopping TV channels and mail order catalogues have diminished Santa’s market share. He and the Board could not sit idly by and permit further erosion of the profit picture.

The reindeer downsizing was made possible through purchase of a late model Japanese sled for the CEO’s annual trip. Improved productivity from Dasher and Dancer, who summered at the Harvard Business School, is anticipated. Reduction in the reindeer will also lessen airborne environmental emissions for which the North Pole has received unfavorable press (gas and solid waste).

This is not original but my supplier was not specific on the source.  Typical of the times.

Question for the Day

Granny and Truck

Big truck or little Granny?

I found Granny out by our Grandson’s new truck. Her explanation:  “Well it is going to rain so I was looking for a place where I wouldn’t get wet and the rearview mirror was just the right height for the three drops we usually get.”

My question: Why do kids buy a new truck for $35,000 and then spend $10,000 to tear it up?
