Trust Me!

The latest news from GM has given me an outstanding business idea. This is so good that I can’t keep it to myself and will let you get in on the action too. General Motors announced their plan to close a number of plants in Michigan and Ohio with a minimal layoff of fifteen thousand workers.  It seems they can’t sell cars anymore like the Japanese, and Koreans so they want to concentrate on designing and building electric cars in China. The sales on the Chevy Volt were so spectacular they couldn’t satisfy demand. Rather than disappoint buyers by not selling them a car, they shut down Volt operations.

A few short years ago Obama deemed General Motors too big to fail. Actually, Obama didn’t give a hoot about the company, what he meant was the United Auto Workers union was too big to fail.  He generously donated fifty billion of our tax dollars to the company in a bailout to save all those voters, er . . . I mean UAW workers. You and I paid five hundred dollars each to that cause through our taxes. Smart asses protecting the great one will argue that GM paid forty billion back. Okay, so GM only owes us $100 each. Had the government kept out of the deal in 2008 GM would have filed for bankruptcy and reorganized. The problem is that the reorganization would have eliminated the UAW.

My experience with GM runs hot and cold. I worked for GM in the nineteen sixties when they were the largest car maker in the world. Their profits were around four billion dollars. They could do no wrong, except to bow to the demands of the UAW. The union had some valid requests like “we want some of that profit because you made it with the sweat of the UAW brow.” If GM didn’t respond the UAW went on strike. The strike wouldn’t last very long because GM didn’t want to upset their shareholders with higher operating costs and lower dividends.  Eventually, the UAW added a huge burden to the cost of an automobile, they still do. Rumor has it that the unions drove up the cost of a car by $1500. what that means is that if you were to put a Toyota Camry next to a Chevy Malibu and the price tags were equal, GM was making $1500 less on the Malibu than Toyota did on the Camry. The GM answer to this dilemma was to cost-reduce their cars. What that did was reduce the reliability and quality of their cars. Add that to the stigma of buying an Obam-mobile and GM loses. Ford and Chrysler have their own stories which I won’t get into right now.

Instead of reviewing the sad history of the former largest car maker in the world let’s look forward. They really believe that electric cars are the wave of the future. Since they are too big to fail I want to take advantage of GM’s plan to make electric cars and trucks. I am starting up a franchise operation to provide energy for millions of electric cars. Right now a Tesla electric gets as much as 280 miles on a charge. I want those people to be able to drive into one of my stations. Think about the possibilities this business has. Even if we shift the paradigm and change from using a gas station to a charging station in our garage we will still need to recharge on the road. A trip across country from Chicago to Flagstaff will require a full-charge five times. Full charges using a super charger take ninety minutes. Using a lower grade charger like the one in your home can take up to ten hours. My stations will be equipped with 10 to 50 superchargers to take advantage of volume. Adjacent to my stations and connected will be a fabulous restaurant, casino, motel for your convenience. After all, a ninety minute charge will only be possible if I am charging ten cars as opposed to fifty. At fifty car capacity it may take three to five hours to charge. During those trapped minutes my casino will be raking in tons of nickels and dimes in the slots. 

The cost of a charge will be about five times the cost of a tank of gas at 2018 prices. Why so high? The demand for electricity will be so great that the electric power plants will be operating at max capacity. It’s that old supply-demand thing again.

Now comes the real lucrative aspect of this business. Behind all the charging stations we will build a high speed electric train using the center median on the interstate system. All those car owners sitting around waiting to get charged will look sadly at the hundreds of people flying past on the high speed rail. Imagine all those dollars pouring into the coffers from all those car owners switching to trains while the cars are at home charging.

The next phase after the high speed rail is a network of power plants. The world doesn’t have enough power generating stations to fuel all the electric vehicles GM is making therefore we’ll need super output generators. They will need energy as well so we’ll tap into wind, sun, and fossil fuels. Right now, coal mines are cheap because everyone is so down on coal. Buying coal is our secret weapon. While we continue to use coal we will also spend billions on harnessing the energy from the sun. All these puny solar collectors cluttering up the landscape are an eyesore and can’t produce spit, but the roof of every house will collect enough solar power to give individual households enough energy to be independent of the grid. Our research will concentrate on collecting sun in large spherical mirrors which transfer solar into heat to run the turbines in the super generators. Since the sun doesn’t shine on some days we will need to tap into the core of the earth to get heat.

Now that we have come full circle on energy, let’s talk about how much you want to invest in my company.  

Is It Just Me?

DNA Links Snipes to Yoda

It seems that we are seeking the answers in the wrong places. If we want to find collusion between the USA and another country trying to influence our elections we should follow this lead. Dr. Brenda Snipes the election judge in Broward County Florida has connections with an interplanetary source. The source exposed in the movie Star Wars is trying to swing the planet into a socialist-orb. Dr. Snipes has done an outstanding job of confusing election results and manipulating ballots in a way that can only be explained by a seer such as Yoda. Rumor has it that Yoda is related to Ms Snipe. 

Why else would a credible Democrat election official be pointed at as incompetent, and derelict in her duties to certify an election within the lawfully specified time allotted for counting unless she is under the spell of Yoda? Could Yoda have been chosen to swing the election to the dark side?Special Prosecutor Mueller should be directed to investigate if there is collusion between Trump and the Death Star. Did Trump engage Yoda to interfere with the election to eliminate Hillary from contention?

CNN is tracking the connection between Snipes and Yoda. At this point, CNN reporter Jim LaCostraNostra has learned that George Soros is the only one old enough to be able to point at Yoda as a suspect. If this connection is made and verified it will mean Hillary is the rightful President, and all of Trump’s actions as President are invalid. All of Hillary’s policies will come into effect retroactively. Among them Past President Obama will return to the administration in the position of Darth Veeder. His first act will be to execute Trump with his light saber by public decapitation.

It is time for this author to sign off and to seek nourishment and stimulation for his brain cells. It seems his imagination has run amok. Could it be that Yoda has secretly invaded his brain and caused him to bare this ugly truth? 

Time for some decaf coffee and nuts.

How Is This Different?

MY_CompanyLogos_featured.png

A few months ago when a huge caravan of mid-easterners marched into Europe and occupied Germany and Sweden we were all dumbfounded. The European lack of action appeared as though Europe was caught sleeping. In fact, Europe welcomed the invaders. Europe needs people to shore up its dwindling population. It is a well-known fact that the USA is in the same dilemma, but has been saved by the child producing Hispanics invading from the south.

White people in America avoid having kids by two means; birth control and abortion. We are so good at preventing birth that our white birthrate (1.8 kids per woman) is much like that of Europe (1.3). In order to continue the race there needs to be 2.1 babies born per woman.White Privilege, a term we hear so much these days should be relabeled White Stupidity because we have controlled our birth rate toward extinction.

People are so worried about global warming melting Antarctica and flooding the Continents, but they ignore population decline as a more realistic way to end Earth. Fewer people means less pollution and less global warming (This is a stupid argument because man-made global warming is a myth). What good will Earth be if there are no people?

To me the caravan coming to America, which has grown from less than two hundred beginning in Honduras and growing to fourteen thousand as they progress, will end badly. Given Republican proclivity to follow our laws this invasion will cause an overload of resources at the border. The laws are specific on how long migrants of this category can be detained. After reaching the limit, the people will be allowed to find their way into the general population. It will be Obama migration all over again. In the meantime, Our Congress will debate, argue and ignore changing the laws to make sense.

The only recourse the President has is to keep them from crossing into the USA. As long as they are outside they are not under our laws.

The USA allows one million people to immigrate every year. There are approximately 200 countries in the world. If we were to spread immigration equally across the world (not possible) 5000 people are allowed to migrate legally from each country. Given that Central Americans don’t believe in borders, quotas, or US laws this jolly parade of invaders will have used up the permitted average immigration level of three countries in one day. Central America has seven countries, Belize, Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Costa Rica. Surprise to me Mexico is part of North America. The biggest mistake the USA made was when they stopped short of taking all of Mexico during the Mexican war.

This whole immigration thing is pretty stupid. The people of the USA do not dislike immigrants but we hate illegal immigration. All Congress has to do is change the law to permit people to enter legally without hundreds of loop holes like the current law has. An open border is another thing we dislike, We feel we should be in control of our country not the invading migrants.

The USA is a great place to live, but if we allow an uncontrolled mass of new people from two hundred countries to descend upon us quickly,  the assimilation will be horrible, and the accompanying problems insurmountable. We are a melting pot, but as with anything that melts it takes time for it to happen. Some materials melt quicker than others, and some very slowly. Some have higher melting points and therefore require a large expense of energy and time to melt totally. Migrant assimilation is not much different from melting solids. It is best if we correct the problems of the countries from which they migrate so they will want to stay rather than deal with so many problems.

One idea to help these countries is to franchise the USA. Allow countries to establish USA franchises, and send all of our brightest to govern the countries from which people flee. Yep, make the USA like Mac Donald’s. Charge an initial fee then install a USA national crew to run the franchise. These USA franchises could become model political machines within countries. All of them spreading the solid principles of our Constitution into the home country. Each franchise will be a total self-contained unit set up and ready to convert the home country into a livable place. That folks is my recommendation and I’m sticking to it. The idea is just crazy enough to work.

Losing Liberty In Baby Steps, but Very Fast

The county and village I live in is known to be Republican. At least I thought so. In the past eighteen months I have suspected that a couple of new actions by our mayor have been under the guise of “for the good of the people.” To me that is code used by leftist big government to cover actions taken to remove liberty from their loyal subjects.

I am currently president of a local service club that is seventy-seven years old. The club is dedicated to serving the community. For the past thirty-eight years the club has held a raffle to raise money. A large percentage of the funds return directly to community members or organizations. A much smaller percentage leaves the community to fund disaster relief like the three hurricanes that demolished Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico last year.

The raffle prize in the beginning was a Cadillac automobile. With inflation and poor economies the Cadillac became a Chevy, then the Chevy turned into a cash prize. From the beginning the tickets sold for twenty dollars which was the equivalent of a hundred dollars in today’s dollar. Today the same twenty dollar bill is the new fiver. Our raffle still limits the number of tickets sold, but since I have been a member we have never sold all of the tickets. Last year we came within twenty of reaching the goal.

We hold the raffle every year at a special dance. The raffle ticket is also your entrance ticket to the dance.  It is a very nice community affair attended by friends and neighbors. It is a great time. At the same time the Chamber of Commerce runs a world class craft fair that brings thousands of people to the town over a three day weekend celebrating the waning of summer. The entire event, that of my club and the craft fair is a huge party. Every night the special tent set up for the party is filled to capacity with many happy citizens listening to popular bands and drinking beer. The proceeds from the sale of beer funds many community organizations like Boys baseball, Girls Soccer, the Band Boosters, Church Ladies Club, etc. all of them rely heavily on the proceeds to run successful programs

Last year the venue management which was made up of volunteers from the organizations that benefitted from the earnings disbanded at the last minute. Rumor has it that Dear Leader spent considerable effort to inform these local organizations that the liability they carry upon their shoulders for mishaps that may happen as a result of their volunteer workers pouring and serving beer may bankrupt them. The litigation that could result would be a disaster. The venue leaders ran away terrified of financial ruin.

Dear Leader rode in on his charging white stallion dressed in shiny armor to save the day with a plan in hand. The plan did away with using uncertified-licensed volunteers to pour beer. A professional management company will do that from now on, and they will carry the burden of liability. After all it is a state law that we will do that because it is for the good of the people.

Our club survived, but at the expense of three thousand dollars less in our till. That is a huge amount of money taken away from serving the community (which by the way is a lot like doing it for the good of the people, except we do it for fun not for control). Nevertheless, we survived.

Today, we are six days away from holding our raffle, tickets sales are crappy. We are getting feedback that community members didn’t like Dear Leader’s planned event, and they will no longer attend (why they want to stop supporting our club is another matter they don’t explain).

Yesterday, I opened an E-mail from one of our members who is also the Chief Constable. He was alarming me to get a permit to hold a raffle. Without a permit, the raffle is not legal, and as such can become a liability for the perpetrators. “Where the hell did that come from?” I asked, after slowly oozing down from the ceiling. The answer was: the Village passed an ordinance last year to comply with a State law, it is for the good of the people, and Dear Leader wants to do nothing to bring harm to the people.

My take on this matter is that slowly we the people are losing ground and our liberties are being taken away from us. It is an evolution of government. Illinois is more socialist, excuse me I  meant to say more democrat than California. The difference is that we have ordinary people living here and California has a large colony of entertainers who believe we should all bow before them. Instead, we have a colony of politicians who believe the same thing, but they don’t act in movies. Illinois is so socialistic and controlling that those in charge can be referred to as “Dear Leader.” For those who can not decipher my code Dear Leader is the facetious title given to the Mono-leader of North Korea who truly believes everyone in his country belongs to him and their very lives are the result of him and his all knowing, all loving, all embracing administration.

Evolution:

The gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form, like from limited government to huge complex overly burdened bureaucratic government. It stinks even when it is in a small town like mine and my fellow neighbors are swallowing it hook, line, and sinker.

Bias, Another Target for the Libs

Snowflakes, so fragile.

Today, I read an article about how colleges are setting up offices intended fight bias in schools.

“When students see something that makes them uncomfortable, hurt or offended, on many campuses they can report that language to the administration — in particular, to something called a bias response team.”

What have we done to our kids to make them so sensitive to speech? My answer is that we have made them social justice warriors, or more simply communists. College administrations set up bias police forces to handle reports by students of all the hurtful language they hear on campus. These people who are so hurt by normal speech fall into the class of snowflakes.
Communists hate free speech, and they want to control the message of everything we hear. If they don’t condone it, they hate it and fight the speaker to silence him. This is in direct violation of our right to free speech.

Many times the speech reported as biased comes from foreign students who don’t fully understand our culture and have no clue about what the First Amendment is. The idea of foreign students in our colleges is a point of bias that I have a problem with. Why in the hell are we the tax payer who pay for state colleges allow these same colleges to recruit and register foreign students over our own kids? One argument I hear is that foreign students pay full-out-of-state tuition.  Isn’t this a bias against our citizens? Between out-of-state students, affirmative action, gender bias, and all the other politically correct policies held by colleges, kids born in the USA have problems getting into a state college.

Let me elaborate on these policies:

  1. Out of state tuition is usually higher than in state tuition. This is a bias toward registering students with money. Most times they are from foreign countries and not just a neighboring state.
  2. Affirmative Action is a bias which violates the US Constitution. It is upheld illegally by the Supreme Court only to give poor blacks kids a chance against other races. After all their great, great, great, great grandparent may have been a slave. We white people have cruelly held blacks back for several hundred years, and therefore, we need a biased law to force us to remove our bias against them.
  3. Gender bias puts pressure on kids to be a different sex than they are. Some schools register more men than women, such as all men’s schools like Notre Dame. The bias is against women to become men so they too can attend a school.
  4. Speech-try to say something that is against a particular group and you portend your right to free speech.

There is a simple solution to this problem of bias in schools. Purify the state schools so only residents of the state they live in may attend. Eliminate out-of-state students and foreigners.

In the case of gender let the kids who meet the entrance criteria for a given curriculum attend. If it 100% male, let it be. If 100% happen to be female let that be as well. Students who have the freedom to attend but who don’t have the credentials should not. On the other hand if a kid doesn’t meet the criterion he is not accepted. Simple. except that college people love to travel to foreign countries on the company and without foreign exchange programs they can’t. Instead we the tax payer look the other way when colleges promote these programs under the guise of improving the world.

If Iran wants Iranians to be educated let them educate their own people. If their schools are not up to our schools let them find ways to improve. Please, please don’t insist on sending your students to our schools and then make trouble by proclaiming we hold a bias against them. If you live in Indiana and don’t qualify to attend Indiana University don’t cross the border to attend the University of Illinois. Instead find a local Indiana school to learn what you want to learn. There are plenty of private schools all across America that will accept your money.

In oder to get this accomplished we the people have to insist that our state schools meet our demands.

Neutered Men

My rant yesterday about the death of the Boy Scouts of America left me thinking all through the night. A new question popped into my confused mind. Why don’t the Girl Scouts recruit boys to join? Progressive women are so bent on infiltrating all men organizations but we never hear of them allowing men to enter their lairs. Why is that? There are plenty of men who like Bruce Jenner want to be women. It would be a natural for the Girl Scouts to encourage men to join. My guess is that women joining men’s organizations has nothing to do with the women’s movement. It has everything to do with the communist party. It is no secret that communists have set goals to infiltrate movements for the express purpose of causing division. They are good at it, and we are buying into it hook, line, and sinker. Do you want to start a revolution? Set black men against white, women against men, cop against criminal,  heterosexual against homosexual. Division works to confuse people and to sell the message of equal outcome for everyone. How can women be equal to men when men insist on maintaining all men’s worlds like the Boy Scouts? They can’t, so they must fight hard to infiltrate, and neuter the man’s private world. At the same time they keep their own women’s world organizations solidly female, no men allowed.

Movements like the one to neuter the Boy Scouts only serve to give religions fostering fewer women’s rights to flourish. After all there is something to be said for having four wives who must bow to the man’s needs with a right to have a temporary wife when the four aren’t satisfying enough. Want to keep the little lady in control? Join an all man’s organization like Islam.

Real women like my mother were never upset over not having the same rights as men. Why would my mother want to go to work in a dirty shop to work in conditions not fit for women. Why would a woman want the right to use a hammer straightening steel in her job all day long? Instead my mother chose to out work my father by raising three kids, keeping house, tending a one acre garden, raising chickens for food, and cooking for the nuns at the local convent. She held the respect of every family in the neighborhood, and she never minded that she couldn’t compete with my dad for anything. She made her own world, and enjoyed her womanliness doing it.

The wimps in charge of the BSA are all Bruce Jenner wanna be’s. They should look at the Girl Scouts for help in keeping their male identities.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll have another BSA rant to get off my chest.
