    Morning ,Rats . Happy New Year back at you. Neither one of us drink so we won’t be having any bubbly tonight.

    —————-

    cathy,

    You put a lot of time & thought into your post. I think you can take Matthew on in the tug of war of opposing ideas.

    —————

    I read this in the Post this morning.

    More terrorist in the making

    One , a privileged daughter of a well known Dr ., the other , a Harvard grad & Occupy Wall Street activist.

    Police went to their Greenwich Village home yesterday looking for Morgan Gliedman ( 9 months pregnant )for alleged credit cart theft.

    Police found : a cache of weapons and a bombmaking explosive, instructions on making bombs, including a stack of papers with a cover sheet titled, “The Terrorist Encyclopedia,seven grams of a white chemical powder called HMTD, which is so powerful, cops evacuated several nearby buildings ,a flare launcher, which is a commercial replica of a grenade launcher; a modified 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun; ammo; and nine high-capacity rifle magazines. Cops also allegedly uncovered papers about creating homemade booby traps, improvised submachine guns, and various handwritten notebooks containing chemical formulas.

    The baby dad, Aaron Greene, “attended Harvard as an undergraduate and did his graduate work at the university’s Kennedy School of Government.
    He has five prior run-ins with the police, with the charges including, assault, and weapons possession, sources said.”

    What a waste of human potential !

  • Letmethink

    Morning dd and Rats
    It certainly is a waste of human potential but sadly there seems to be more and more of this evolving from our universities.
    Saw this post this morning and it reminded me of the discussions we have here. It seems we live in alternate universes. I know the liberal posts never change my mind and I don’t see any of the libs changing their minds—

    Don’t spend time beating on a wall,
    hoping to transform it into a door.”

    So true ,for there many different doors to go through in life. Leave the walls alone unless you’re going to paint hem or hang pictures on them.

    ————-

    Matthew,

    US News & W.R. had an article by Mort Zuckerman

    Brace For an Avalanche of Unfunded Debt

    The fiscal cliff isn’t as scary as the looming deficit and debt crisis about to swamp the country

    This article plus my mentioning the Harvard grad in my earlier post today made me think to suggest this to you.

    This Time Is Different: Eight Centuries of Financial Folly

    A paperback translated in 20 languages

    Carmen Reinhart Professor of the International Financial System at Harvard Kennedy School and Kenneth Rogoff, leading economist from Harvard

    The authors cover sixty-six countries across five continents.

    These economists were associated with Mitt Romney , but, that shouldn’t dissuade reading this book ,for, only if one looks at all sides , is a person able to be truly informed.

    Chose a door to go through Matthew, &, start making a differece.

    Coco Chanel must have tried to find secret doors and got frustrated of not finding any. :grin:
    The discussions may change the minds of the “invisible” ones who just read and never comment. Perhaps not a waste of time, even when the opposing commenter is a motor mouth whose task is to just drop talking bombs.

    That is true. Never consider my time here wasted–sometimes frustrating but not wasted. I know my knowledge is increased by reading here. Mostly it re-confirms what I think but for those who don’t follow–it is a good place to read and learn.
    Grocery shopping day so gotta hit the road. Dark, wet and dreary here–hope it is sunny and warm where you live–

    Rats,

    I KNEW you had a good man!! For him to do that for you and me, a complete stranger, is AWESOME!! :lol:

  • 1966

  • d.d.

    It’s pretty apparent that I like to read. Give me a bookcase full of books , except for technical manuals , westerns , or science fiction , & , I’m one happy person.

    CNN Money yesterday opined about whatever happens with the fiscal cliff , workers paychecks will get smaller.

    Monthly paychecks will have $50 less for those earning $30,000 annually, and will shave off $189.50 for those with incomes totaling $113,700. Why ? The article states it is because no one is expecting the payroll tax to be extended. .

    and Marketwatch is asking :

    Are we already in a recession?
    Commentary: Economists are almost always slow to spot key trouble signs
    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/are-we-already-in-a-recession-2012-12-28

    Yes, there are some bright spots like housing. Now, maybe my sister & my neighbor’s brother who have been trying to sell their homes in California for three years will be able to do it. My neighbor’s brother has had a lot here for that long & my sister & her husband want to move to Arizona.

    A few bright spots , though , don’t make a recovery .

    Jim Rogers has been discussed here as a free market success story , & , I’ve been following him even before he moved to Singapore 5 years or so ago . The Rogers are now raising two young daughters to speak both English & Mandarin & their home has no TV by choice. Rogers believes in training our kids to be able to work and live in an international environment & he thinks it’s not being done in the US schools. I have a sister in law , a lawyer , who speaks fluent Mandarin, but, how many college graduates speak any other language but English & Spanish ? South Korea starts English instruction in 1st grade Rogers has had such an interesting life & been successful enough to retire in his 30’s. He always returns to the US for he has an apartment here & to appear on TV , usually with gold coins he’s purchased here jingling in his pocket.

    Jim Rogers sees an America in decline, & would rather invest in Russia than the US. He does own farmland & is bullish on agriculture , much like Soros, Rogers thinks sugar & cotton will pay off in 2013.

    Rogers has come a long way from his first enterprise …selling peanuts.

    He ended an interview with ‘The Daily Bell’ in Oct.:

    Politicians always look for the easy answer. That’s one reason why socialism has a repeal periodically, socialistic kinds of measures, because people want the easy answer. But the easy answer is not going to work. The easy answer never works. They will try the easy way and make the situation worse.

    Happy Happy Happy!!!
    Tom T Hall was one of my favorites! He had some great C&W songs! He did the “old Five and Dimer” and I made that my CB “handle” back in the 70’s :)

  • 1966

    @ratboy
    I remember hearing him in 1971.He was just starting out.

  • Matthew

    @Cathy: Since I’ve lived most of my life in an era where the unions have greatly declined, I don’t have much personal experience with unions. The only way in which the issue has touched my life is the fact that the union my father was in was busted up when I was very young, which is part of what prompted my family to move to Florida.

    Before, my father was the solo worker in the house, because of the quality of his paycheck and benefits. While my mother was pregnant with me, my father broke his neck on the job, and it was miraculous that he both survived, and didn’t end up paralyzed. While he was in the hospital, his best friend, and my mother’s brother (both of whom worked for the company in management positions) in an act of true sleaziness went to him in his hospital bed to pressure him (in a roundabout way) to not sue, since his injury was due to the corporation’s negligence.

    Now, this was unnecessary, since my father is both incredibly loyal, stoic, and not prone to ‘rocking the boat,’ so he would have never sued in the first place. I mention this because, mere months after he fully recovered and was back on the job, management busted up their union, and my father’s paycheck was halved, as well as his benefits slashed.

    So, after all of that, my father was expected to work a dangerous job (he certainly wasn’t the first and only workplace injury) for half the pay; when he was unionized, my father’s paycheck was enough to support a family of three, pay for a nice two-story house, and leave us with enough excess to put away retirement, college, and emergency funds.

    After the union busting, we moved to Florida into a far more modest house, my mother went back to college to become a CPA, and even with two working parents we took a downgrade in lifestyle.

    I don’t say all of those things to imply that CEOs are bad, that CEOs are greedy, or that unions are inherently good, I say those things to illustrate what has happened to a lot of working class families; not just since the 2008 collapse, but for the last 30 years. It’s not merely that working class salaries aren’t keeping pace with the growth in CEO salaries, it’s that inflation-adjusted wages for the working class are literally falling behind. Particularly because of health insurance costs: I’m sure there’s more than a couple people who’ve seen their premiums growing by a larger annual percent than their paycheck.

    My argument isn’t that some degree of decline isn’t inevitable, and even necessary, in the era of globalization, it’s that things don’t need to be this bad. I have to keep going back to Costco, because it’s really the best example of a corporation that’s practicing legitimate trickle down. Costco is doing well, which means it’s not just the shareholders and skilled labor benefiting from Costco doing well, it’s EVERYONE in the operation that’s benefiting. They pay their workers well, and magically, they still remain competitive. Wages haven’t declined because we can’t afford to pay the working class better, they’ve declined because that is the path we’ve chosen, and it’s up to labor to demand better.

    Which brings me back to what I said yesterday: If you’re going to advocate against social safety nets, and for upper income tax cuts, fine, but how about a little guarantee for workers in return: a living wage, health care, and retirement benefits. Work SHOULD be an incentive over welfare.

    The Abridged Version: In a nation with an annual GDP in excess of $16 trillion, we should be perfectly capable of paying a full time worker, even in the very lowliest of positions, a wage that allows them to make their family secure; not just a wage and benefits to meet their basic needs, but a wage and benefits that gives you a hedge against disaster, should the worst happen. Few working class families today feel such security.

    NBC reporter raises Hillary Clinton questions

    http://www.politico.com/story/2012/12/nbc-reporter-raises-hillary-questions-85611.html

    plus,

    “CBS News medical correspondent Dr. Jon LaPook (who says he has not been briefed on the particulars of Clinton’s condition, such as the location of the blood clot) says that it is unusual for someone to be given blood thinners after suffering a blow to the head. ”

    I could see Hilary being on blood thinners , first Heparin , then coumadin ,for a leg clot, though.

    I him. This is impossible, I of all our manufacturing and our natural resources. The high school graduate will not make as much money. The fact is that Third World nations are kicking our behind. In the future. Our average wages in the United States will fall along with tax revenue until we bring back our natural resources and manufacture. I him with world competition being what it is. The well and the lifestyle of Americans will continue to decline until we do something about our trade deficit.
