You have to be smarter than the machine

Something I have always told my wife, and now she is proving that this message is meant for me as well, since she can access my blog to type this cryptic message to me!  She had to help me get onto my own blog.  Lord help us all!

Some one won the last election.  They are now in power.  They are now enjoying the spoils of their victory.  The auto indusrty (if you dare call it that), is waiting to die.  The united auto workers (the real industry) is scraping around trying to rat hole away as much of my and your money as possible.  The obama man is helping that happen.  Paying back their support during his election and election of many others.  Now the problem arises.  Now the problem slithers down into the dismal swamp without making a visible wave or rip.  We are in trouble.  He has selected a small group to benefit from this nations abilities at the cost of the nation at large.

All great governments have lasted about 200 years.  All great governments have died due to their excesses.  Bloat, large volumes of rancid gas comes to mind, comes to the nose.

Is our government's incomputance based upon our elected leader, or is it based upon his advisors.  We need to determine the problem and destroy the problem before or as it destroys this nation.

I hate to see the demise of the US auto industry.  I hate to see the demise of the uaw, I hated to see the demise of the Edsel, Packard, Studebaker, Nash, Rambler.  They have all gone.  Their failure has had little long term affect.  We have all survived.  We have all prospered.  Not many could tell you who they were, why they were, nor why they are no longer.

This crisis that we are in is termed a crisis because it is now, it is current, it was not yesterday, it is not tomorrow, it is now.  When this pending crisis was discussed in the past it was deemed not a crisis.  It was not currently in effect at that time.
Many are using this crisis as a means of pushing thru what the general public would not tolerate "if not for this crisis".  They are taking advantage of the fear flowing through this country and this world.  As many took advantage of the fear flowing throught this country after the terrible event on 9-11.
Obama's social democracy will lead to mediocracy, failure, unemployment(except by government), higher taxes, inflation, and economic stagnation.  I say this because of the reward system that is being put into place now.  Companies fail, unions choke competition, and the government rewards.  Companies flurish, and the government taxes those companies more to help reward the failures.  The government owes a debt to those who supported its election.  This new open government is not open to tell the people who they owe this debt to, but they are paying it, and paying with your money.

Spring in Florida, Life is Always Good

We had an active weekend here on the farm.  We separated  the remaining heard of mothers from the calves.  Much whaling and baying at the moon.  At one point a 1500 pound pig in cow skin ran over me as I foolishly stood in the gate in a failed attempt to stop her.  Luckily I had perfected my cow herding abilities as a youth, and it only took 6 hours to get her back to the correct pasture.  We have had a two day opera from the black angus girls of Sumterville with the calves providing back up from the back pasture.  By moving moms from the back and the teens from the front to join with the children in he back, we had to have two change of command ceremonies.  Several parades back and forth across the pasture, a lot of banging of heads, shoving and pushing,  The pecking order is still being reassigned as I write this.  During the weekend Snuffy Smith, the male burro, decided that he had had enough and jumped the fence, breaking the top board, and ran ramped thru the neigh-barn-hood, Sugar Baby, the female, decided that she was still in love and reacted loud and clear.  Thru out all of this the dogs acted bravely, barking loudly at anything that had intruded into dog territory, chasing anything that did not chase them.  Max, the big dog, decided it best to dig a very deep hole.  I don't know if he was trying to hide or find something at the center of the earth.

The weather has been beautiful, cool to warm, cool to the point of no mosquitoes.  I really wish that they would restart  the TV ads for the election process.  I do miss watching them.

During the weekend, Zekiel (the buro) and Buck-Shot (the lab) had to inspect an unidentified turtle crossing their pasture.  No problems reported.  Then this winged kid with baskets flew thru my grape vines, but with no grapes this early in the year, he left.  And the final.  Strawberry's for easter.  Delicious.

The President is on his way to Europe and the G-20 summit.  Hat in hand.  Ready to ask the likes of China, Japan, Singapore (what we used to call those 3rd world countries), to finance this countries bankruptucy.  His first trip to Europe was to a rock concert in Berlin, thousands were there, not to see him but to see and hear the music.  The news media alowed him to take advantage of that situation.  Will the news media allow him to take advantage of this situation ?

The country supports the President.  His approval is high.  Every President is popular until he does something.  There are two or more sides to every situation.  Each time a President acts, he has a slight loss of popularity.  Gets down to basic math, those who  believe likewise and those who believe otherwise.  The otherwise group reduces the popularity slightly.  That is the way it has been for every President.  If you look back over time, the President has spoken in very general terms, no specifics.  Now that is changing.  Good luck Mr. President.

The battered heart of Chevrolet is on the table.  A new face.  I hope a new plan.  Building new cars takes years.  Reducing cost will be painful and many question if GM can do that.  They will or they will die.  At least now they are not saying that it is a lack of financing.  People buy one auto over another because of quality and cost.  Quality is a function of management and workers. Cost is a function of management, workers, and the sales organization.  Workers and management.  These factors are what placed GM into the position they are in.  All of the bailout money in the world will not work if these factors do not change.  GM must be competitive in quality and cost.  The buying public has voted with their money in the past.  The buying public will vote again on who has the best quality and the best cost.

There exist in Southeast Asia a rat that makes an exponential explosion in its population.  Cycle is about every 46 years if my memory serves.  The place is Myanmar.  West of Thailand, east of Bangladash, the locals live on rice, the rats eat the rice, and other stuff that is growing.  This is normal and goes on year to year.  Then, bam, every 46 years the rat population explodes and the rats consume all, leaving the people to starve, the starving people even start eating the rats to stay alive.  The rats eat everything that the local people live on.  Terrible situation.  No scientific evidence exist at this point in time to connect this action with actions of our elected officials.

R-species:  these species often have a biology which specialises in maximum reproductive potential when the opportunity arrives.  They show periodic population explosions.  Pest and pathogens (disease causing organism) are often r-species.  No scientific evidence exist at this point in time to connect these actions to our elected officials.

I have this recurring dream.  It goes like this.  A pack of rats, all blind-folded, standing in a circle, standing waist deep in rat manure, all stabbing each other in the back.  Then I awake, only to realize that I was dreaming of congress and what they are up to now.  The sad thing is that my dream makes sense.  

Statism: a political system in which the state has substantial centralized control over social and economic affairs.  

We appear to be making progress on our current financial crisis.  We appear to be making progress towards a new world order.  We appear to be making progress towards the future.  None of this is necessarily good or bad.

The future ain't what it used to be.

People need to be aware of what is going on.  People need to be aware of what our leader's are doing.  People need to consider what their actions will bring to us, and how these actions will be brought to us.  Will it be brought down upon us.  We do need change.  We are intrusting this change to the very people who created the need for the change.

Beware.  Be aware.

I heard the guy from AIG and I listened, he told the story of people wanting to hang AIG people with piano wire, well if they had started doing that with the Credit Union crisis or the EN-RUIN crisis then it would make more sense.  Well I thought why them, those people are brilliant, they took all that money with out using a gun, just said give me your money, and all the people of wall street did, and all those dudes and dude-ets in congress did.  They just gave them the money.  And listen, they want to give them more,more,more (that indicates plural and indicates that ` the give away is not over yet).  The piano wire is for the congress and the government who continue to operate behind closed doors.  He (big boss) said change, well the name on the door is different, the address and bank accounts are all the same.  Barney (one bullet)Frank is playing the blame game and is in reality Joseph Raymond McCarthy (November 14, 1908 – May 2, 1957), who served until his death.  We need mercy on our souls.

This whole deal is to enable them to find another sucker to buy their snake oil, that sucker is you and me.

I impress again, the responsible party is our elected officials.  They said to give credit to anything that can breath.  They wrote the definitions of ARMS:  interest-only adjustable-rate mortgage (just stop and consider for a minute what that means to the economy), also the NINJA: no income, no job, and no assets.  These are real banking terms.  All to fill a need brought about and brought to you by YOUR US Congress aka: your elected officials.  The only way these can work is that the buyer can sell to someone for more than he paid.  That is a pyrimad scheme.  Provided by the US government, your elected officials.

  I impress again, if your elected official supported this spending, ask them to resign.
