z'old hard disk platter... excellent task mirror.

Well ... this morning was smooth like a tummy covered in butter.
er... ok, never mind that.

Woke up on time... brought ma-shuga a coffee (she had to go in early today) and set about getting boys in front of pancakes.
Teeth done, bags packed, and coats ready a full fifteen minutes before the bus was due.
This is good mojo. Makes for a vastly more relaxed atmo at the get go
~ and if you groaned over that last bit... s'ok, you're not alone.

It's all about snow, snow and more snow. The idiot weather-cult was all about complicated predictions of" wet snow, changing to rain and back to wet snow and temperatures up and down and blah blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda ... what we mean is we have no frick'en idea but ... look at this cool map." Now? It's all just snow man.

Birthday moment...
a wee wish out to gonefishing who is much absent (or changed her name and hid her birthday) but never forgotten. Happy Birthday sugar.

So here's how it works...
First ... you build a big ass company, and gain wild success with government
war contracts. You live with your union controlled work force... because baby...
things are good!
Then... you get a little competition in the new-world-order as foreign mfgs
start bringing it - and making nice with the locals btw...
K... now remember those unions... yeah, well they never let up and before you
know it, you have clauses like "will pay medical bills for the employee until he dies...
regardless of ongoing employment." (true, but only an just an example)
Now add to that a totally pig headed desire to garner the quick buck by focusing
on a narrow market that can be convinced they need to spend 50% more on
your product because you've convinced them they need GIANT versions of it.
Those foreign mfgs... they dabble in that "big zone" but they don't commit.
Not like you guys...
But those foreign dudes pay attention to the global market and strike up big
honking sales and growth stats in countries all over the world.
Meanwhile, the unions continue to hammer General Motors for more and more
benefits, raises - when nobody else is getting raises - and GM continues to think
SUVs are a good idea.

Well now... the accountants say that despite 12 billion in assets and projected short term
profits, GM is bankrupt as a calculation of the planned medical coverage requirements
for three decades of employees... that are all getting ... older.

So you restructure... spin off a few sub-companies to isolate losses and profits.
Alas... they're still screwed financially... so they have to cut tens of thousands of jobs.
Thousands in Ontario... and closing a plant all together in Ontario too.

Gah... horrible.
What to do ... what to do.
Oh... what's that? Why it's Buzz Hargrove... the Union Boy.
"It's time to ask the government (aka the taxpayers) to bail out this manufacturer and protect their market from foreign manufacturers."
bwaahahahahaha!!!!

And that is exactly why I think the stupid Unions are anachronistic, stupid, vapid and ridiculous.
General Motors can sink under the crush of a field of SUVs for all I care. My tax dollars can be put to better use than bailing out GM.

I feel bad for the employees but they will be re-employed across the employment sectors because ...
that's what you have to do when you lose your job.
Just talk to any number of high tech sector workers.

So, based on the failed attempts of the political opposition in Canada to get the government to relieve them of any responsibility for calling an election, it looks like the government may face a non-confidence vote and have to call a snap election over christmas. hahahahaha... talk about the "other parties" shooting themselves in the foot. OMG you idiots. !!! hahahahaa... I'm dying here.

/
"atmo at the get go" hahaha... I'm such a git.

gotta jet... talk soon. :)
Be nice to strangers... be nice to friends...
but, for goodness sake, be nice to yourself too.
Believe me... you deserve a break.
