    I think it is funny I had to look up DFACS offices/ this morning.

    Not only labor costs but regulations and liability are big issues for companies. I am a homebuilder and have our own in house framing/trim crew and so workers comp is higher because of it being construction. Our insurance company had a “safety inspector” who would harass my husband with surprise visits. We received “safety reports” and when we didn’t respond to one of them they put a cancellation on us, ( mind you since 1995 we had 2 minor claims). My husband had to sit and be lectured by this guy in order to have our insurance reinstated. This guy weighed probably 300lbs and could barely fit in his safety vest to get on the job site. Then there is customer liability, we give a builders warranty and so we are tied to these clients for a year. Had someone come to an open house n winter( we are in Alaska) and slipped at the END of the driveway and the first words out of his mouth were “you know, I slipped on your driveway” in a I could sue kind of way. We are not getting rich here on these homes. Our profit margins have dropped 5% in the last 5 years to just about 10%. The Realtor is making 5%. So I feel those issues are added stress to especially small businesses.

    I have friend at GM Ford and Chrysler. That is not true. Do not believe everything the Republicans say. It is $6 and hour cheaper in Canada for health care cost. Everything is in play. But you can not pay a Mexican $6 and hour and compete.

    Doug dont even go there! I worke in the auto industry for almost 20 years and it is 100% true!! I worked with Ford, GM, and Crysler and I workd with the GM owned Vauxhall in the UK. I have been to every plant in Michigan I have been to plants in Canada and Mexico. I have worke with Volkswagon in Mexico.

    This is not a right or left thing this is fact! I lived it1 I have sat across the table with Bill Ford and Rick Wagoner not to mention Lee Iococca. I have done a large amount of business with Roger Penske (who was going to buy Saturn) I have alss sat on a couple of occasions with Dr. Deming. I was Six Sigma and 5s. I delt with the now defunct Neumi. ! can go on if you would like! O buy the way i spent many meetings with Wen Beiber and Stephen Yochich. If you dont know who they are google them!

    And btw
    We are doing our labor for free to keep up with competition, (illegal builders who use unlicensed subcontractors)

    Hillary can’t make House hearing on Benghazi; busy visiting friends, wine tasting in Australia…

    Few details of Ms Clinton’s visit on Wednesday and Thursday have been revealed, but it is understood she will visit close friends, one whom is connected to the Carnegie Mellon University. It also believed that:

    THE 150-strong entourage is likely to visit Penfolds’ Magill Estate for either a wine tasting session or private function.
    THE entourage has booked more than 100 rooms over several floors at the Intercontinental Hotel on North Tce.
    HEAVY traffic restrictions are likely from late Wednesday ahead of her anticipated arrival that night.
    HER entourage will leave Adelaide on Friday morning.

    @Doug Z

    I wouldn’t go so far as to agree that Reagon started it, since easy-money policies are available anytime a central bank has the power to open or close the tap on money supply. The central bank was constrained when the dollar was backed by a gold reserve, but this introduced problems in the late sixties due to Vietnam conflict spending and the French demanding the maturities on their worthless treasuries be exchanged for gold. So, I argue that it ‘started’ under Nixon and ‘grew’ under Reagan 10 years later.

    I think it is funny I had to look up DFACS offices/ this morning.

    :smile: There are so many acronyms being thrown around. I didn’t have to look that one up, but I had to look up NIT last night in a conversation with Faith3.

    The problem I have too is in my industry, I am flooded with industry-specific acronyms (names of equipment, or Company administrative guidelines, etc). Sometimes these acronyms are the same I see floating around on the internet or in here for an economic policy or something. I have to stop and scratch my head to realize what is being talked about.

  • TZCA

    @Doug Z

    One of those being NIT = Nitrogen In-purge Tank. I had heard of Negative Income Tax, but I would have never equated it to NIT without looking it up.

    Quick Lunch Break

    Most likely something like this will never come to fruition without bloodshed (the federal government isn’t going to say ‘OK’ to secession).

    After the civil war, congress passed a rule of law that allows a State the freedom to petition to form its own government without secession per say.

    When a State feels that the Government is hurtful to their State the rule allows a State not be governed by Washington, and if the petition is granted they can affectively form a self-ruling government within that State

    Complicated I know, but possible


  • Coffee Steve

    Most of the petitions contain the same wording and ask to withdraw “peacefully” from the United States in order to form independent governments.

    The the White House may have to take the requests seriously. According to the website, any petition receiving 25,000 online “signatures” on the “We the People” page within 30 days of posting will receive a review by the appropriate executive department and a response from a White House staffer.

    As of Monday, the Texas petition had already exceeded the 25,000-signature threshold, and the Louisiana petition was fast approaching the cutoff with more than 18,000 signatures. Most of the petitions were posted online Nov. 10, which means they have until Dec. 10 to qualify for a response.

  • TZCA

    Good day to you Coffee Steve.

    In my conversations with those who have talked of possible secession, I wanted to know if there was verbage allowing secession. The closest I could find was a Congressional Letter tied to the adoption of Texas, but not inclusive to the Texas Constitution.

    I guess I’ll have to research further. But, if you get a chance, could you give me more info about that post civil war legislation… pretty please.

  • TZCA

    @Coffee Steve

    So, a state can be a self-governing member of the Union without obligation to the federal government?

  • TZCA

    @Coffee Steve

    This will be harder for me to get my head around than it took to understand the Trinity :smile:

  • Hoppy

    This is a great time to be alive for those of us who like to watch train wrecks.

  • Coffee Steve


    I’ll try and find the wording, I had it this morning and forgot the Gov site I was on :-)

    @This will be harder for me to get my head around than it took to understand the Trinity

    I understand it for the most part, but every time I think I have it figured out completely, I get dizzy again by something else I read LOL, He wants us to explore and seek, and I guess maybe thats one way he gets us to keep searching :-)

  • Coffee Steve


    LOL ain’t that the truth

    Wealthy Dump Assets Amid Worries About Going Over ‘Cliff’

    “Under almost any scenario, it makes sense to take the gains this year,” said Gregory Curtis, chairman and managing director of Greycourt & Co. “Clients aren’t selling willy nilly. But if they can and they have a huge gain, they’re selling now.”

    They will buy them back. What are they going to do.Buy Bonds, I do not think so. They are to greedy for that. Remember, Greed is good.

    What is MSNBC talking about? So, I turn on MSNBC today, because I like to see both sides of a story and the Morning Joe team is saying the election shows that Obama and the dems have the overwhelming support of the American people. They point at the elect college numbers and call it a mandate. What a spin! Let’s look at real numbers.
    229 million U.S. people of voting age.
    62 million voted for Obama. That’s 27% of the people
    61 million voted against Obama. That’s 26.6% of the people
    When did being supported by .4% more Americans become overwhelming support? Wake up people and stop believing your MSNBC spin.

    As for China being out of money. Well, isn’t that bad news for the U.S. seeing how they own $14.9 trillion of our debt?

    The markets are going to go into meltdown soon, so expect stocks to lose 20 percent of their value, Marc Faber, author of the Gloom, Boom and Doom report told CNBC on Tuesday.
