Pay me a dollar and pick a number between 1 and 145,000,000....

Since it is a tax on people who are bad at math, they may want to consider a constitutional amendment to ban math instruction in schools.

Posted on 04/05/12 at 09:03 am in response to Best Buy’s travails part of the evolution of mass retailing

These big box retailers discounted technology as an expense after the Y2K bust and spent big money on marketing to bring customers to their brick and mortar.

Amazon bet on technology as a competitive advantage and the results are clear. When Best Buy was outsourcing its IT department to off-shore suppliers to save money, Amazon was building the biggest ecommerce platform the world will ever know. Target and Walmart spent its IT money in the 90's upgrading its supply system to move...

They tell you what to think.

You would think Businesses would be clamoring for a single payer plan. Large corporations have banks of call center operators to answer questions about employee health plans and teams of benefit administrators to fine tune their health plans and negotiate with insurance companies. Small businesses are at the mercy of insurance companies. If one employee gets cancer, everyone's rates go up.

Old people get sick and go in the hospital and cost insurance companies money. If we got rid of Medicare and made senior citizens buy from private companies, they couldn't afford it. There are not enough young people who don't get sick who would buy insurance to cover the cost of treating old people. And there are 60 MILLION baby boomers about to get old and sick in the next ten years.

On the plus side, old people would die quicker and cheaper from lack of medical care and the free-...

That's the ad Potter would have put out to get rid of George Bailey if he hadn't stolen his money first.

Posted on 03/19/12 at 02:54 pm in response to Some reasons to be bullish on the future of magazines

I notice newsweeklies in my wife's name have different versions of the same ads than the ones in my magazine. Same companies, different ads. Auto ads are aimed at women in hers, men in mine. Inserted pages, added in and stapled after the rest of the magazine has been printed.

The technology of the printing industry is advancing like the web. If they can custom print ads, they can custom print content.

Your mailbox will contain micro-targeted, custom-printed magazines based on...

Employers just want the freedom to not pay a living wage.

Workers want the freedom from employers who don't want to pay a living wage.

Since we don't want the government to do that, the workers have to form unions.

Its free enterprise.

This will go to the convention in Tampa.
Jeb Bush will accept the nomination in his home state without spending a dime.
The Bush-Santorum ticket will win in November.
The rich will get a tax cut in January.
Israel will bomb Iran after the first full-moon in March.
Unions, abortion, contraception and alternate lifestyles will be outlawed.

Posted on 03/13/12 at 12:06 pm in response to 'Right to work,' Act One: Ending a 'jobs tax'?

We want a Right to Work amendment that states:

We have the right to work for a company that provides a living wage
We have the right to work for a company that doesn't treat its employees as "Human Resources"
We have the right to work for a company that doesn't pay its executives 500 times the average worker
We have the right to work for a company that respects the environment
We have the right to work for a company whose profits go to Main Street not Wall...
