‘When Black Friday comes … gonna do just what I please’

I admire their musicianship. I appreciate their lyrics, and the complex interplay of their music and lyrics. But I can’t say I’ve ever been a huge fan of Steely Dan. To my taste, there’s something chilly and a little removed about their music that makes it hard to fully embrace.

That said, this is too perfect a match not to post today.

Maybe she was just having a bad day like her husband who got jacked up playing basketball.

Meanwhile back in the real world of problems, how much longer can South Korea hold out on North Korean hostilities? Or how much longer can liberalism/socialism hold out in Europe before those nations completely collapse?

“The escalating debt crisis on the eurozone periphery is starting to contaminate the creditworthiness of Germany and the core states of monetary union.”

Hey Europe: just tax the rich and corporations more, print more Euros, and increase social spending. That will solve everything.

Steely Dan’s core was made up of two very eccentric, very talented musicians. To “fill in” their music they used some really, really good studio musicians. From this, one can surmise that they were way, way of ahead of their time but they actually were the song writers and they were the real talent behind their music. I mean the majority of today’s talentless musicians rely upon electronic trickery and “sampling” and other peoples talent to make their living. And the public buys it, for whatever that is worth. Fagen and Becker are excellent and they knew what it took to make good music. They also realized their limitations and they brought in the right people to do the job. It may not have been a consistant line-up for their “band” but make no mistake, they are great. If this mean that their music was “cold”, so be it.

And socialism/progressivism is dying a quick death in Europe. Socialism/progressism’s tentacles are starting to eat away at the European model like a cancer. And, if we continue to pursue it here, we will die a quick death to. We can all argue that the rich must pay more but when it comes down to it, we either live in a communistic world or in a capitalistic one and we all know how the socialistic/communistic scenario plays out. China hasn’t quite got there yet but their people are suffering on because of their leaders pseudo-Marxist/Capitalist amalgom ideology.

You read the headlines about the car accident in the driveway where an uncle runs over his 19 month old nephew. Tragedies don’t get any worse than that. Like a schoolbus running over the student reaching for a dropped pencil.

My father knew a guy who ran over his own child backing out of the driveway. The poor man saw his child behind the car, and got out, picked the child up, and put him yards away in the yard, but by the time the man got to backing his car out of the driveway again, the child had returned to the rear wheel’s path and…..

it’s too horrible to imagine. But it happens every day, because we are human and distracted to a fault, and only prayer and the angels can save any of us.

The UAW had to make significant concessions to get the deal approved. As CNN reported at the time:

“The United Auto Workers union gave GM and Detroit rivals Ford Motor (F, Fortune 500) and Chrysler Group tremendous cost savings in recent contracts. The union agreed to a two-tier wage structure for new hires. It also eliminated a jobs bank that continued to pay laid off workers during the life of a contract.

Most importantly the UAW agreed to a plan to shift responsibility for retiree health care costs away from the companies to union-controlled trust funds. And it then allowed GM and Chrysler to essentially fund those trust funds with company stock rather than cash.”

And as to Europe, remember not too long ago when the conservatives were chortling in glee that the European recovery was stronger than the American recovery. The Europeans, the conservatives explained, had been smarter and “less socialistic” than Obama because they had refused to enact a major stimulus program.

Now that Europe is faltering, they’ve concocted a whole new narrative to chortle about.

I mean that was sheer genius and it, I suppose, is still touted as something that the US must do in order to bring those jobs back to the US. But wait! What is that you say. Ireland is in dire straits. Its banks are bust. Their personal tax rate is up to the level of a Fairly Odd Tax rate of 23% and that’s not all. They’re now implementing new taxes.

TaxPayer

November 27th, 2010

When the Pension Protection Act was passed in 2006, the spread between the corporate bond rate and the 30-year Treasury rate was approximately 1.1 percentage points. It ballooned to an average of 2.5 points in 2008, and is about 1.35 now. “The spreads between Treasurys and corporate bonds are greatest in times of economic uncertainty,” says Ms. Pickenpaugh.

The difference in payouts can be substantial. Consider a 40-year-old who has earned a pension worth $3,000 a month at age 65. If the new rate had been used in December 2008, when the spread between corporates and Treasurys was a steep 3.77 points, his lump sum would have shrunk from $242,839 to $71,148.

I wonder if the problems with the Irish economy will start up new violence between the north and south there.

Maybe the American corporations will use their economy (no new corporate taxes) and higher unemployment to leverage the tax cuts here. Probably so.

In the business schools it was once taught that layoffs were the last resort (loyalty up and down) now staff reduction (making bigger bonuses) is the preferred method of saving money.

There are very few CEO’s of American corporations that have spent the majority of their careers with 1 company or even 1 industry. 30 years ago most of them did. Now it seems like the CEOs float from industry to industry. examples Nardelli and Gerstner(Amex-RJReynolds-IBM). side note after Gerstner took over at IBM Amex became the preferred Corp. Credit Card and AMEX Travel the preferred travel company there. I wonder if he made a deal NAWWWWWWW not the CEO LOL.

Those are the U-20(under 20) national teams of the U.S., Mexico and Columbia playing the Torneo de las Americas in the nearly new stadium at KSU. As an Atlanta Beat season ticket holder, I had first opportunity for tickets a couple of months ago but declined because I wasn’t sure when I would be heading back up to a small hamlet in the N.C. Mtns. this weekend.

Would have been a great opportunity to see the future stars of the U.S. national team, though….

I guess that would be four straight quarters of football. :)

I figured you may have already known. I consider you the guru of all things futbol, but thought I’d pass that info on anyway.

European socialism is collapsing. Enough said about socialism.

Closer to home, Jay, can you actually defend the fact that the UAW is making out like a bandit on the backs of taxpayers? I will walk before I would drive a GM vehicle. To hell with GM.

Making out like bandits, Pogo?

You mean, because they still have jobs? That’s your definition of “making out like bandits?”

Personally, I would say the hedge fund managers netting an average of a billion bucks a year thanks to the Wall Street bailout are the ones making out like bandits, but maybe that’s just me. I don’t have the gene that automatically equates union with evil.

In News of The “Well, that certainly sucks”, this wee factoid emerges:

Only 7.4 percent of the world population currently lives in jurisdictions with comprehensive smoke-free laws, and those laws are not always robustly enforced.

thus, 600,000 dead every year from second hand smoke.

So, it’s leftover ham, leftover stuffing, leftover mashed ‘tators, leftover gravy, leftover roast acorn squash, maybe something leafy and green, for dinner tonight.

You folks?

With the crowd I fed this holiday. It’s crumbs from the leftover crumbs. LOL

I see Jay is suffering from wealth envy. There. Now, most of the compassionate conservatives will have nothing to say that we have not heard already today. As for leftovers, leftover GRAVY! Ewwwww! We make it fresh for each meal of leftover turkey and stuffing.

Been fueled by leftovers since Thursday…

I will walk before I would drive a GM vehicle. To hell with GM.

The old GM or the new GM? I’d drive a GM before I put money into a foreign company’s pocket. That’s just little ol’ patriotic me though. I can’t speak for everyone else.
