Independant of What ?

Welcome to Summer....Hot Sun, cool shade, all the while we create in stride.

Blah blah, woof, woof...the noise lessens from the East as Government goes on an undeserved break.

Half baked and sometimes retired, I do have ideas to share or here I go...

Those who say a weak dollar is important for exporting our goods and services give merit to a weak currency.

As a veteran of both domestic manufacturing as well as repackaging of imported goods to the domestic market I have benefitted from this dual exposure.

Bottom line is this, if ninety percent of what we buy in hardware or bigbox stores is imported from low wage Chinese sweat shops, why on this Earth do we need a weak currency as a standard of American strength in the marketplace ?

The core of what is America....our natural resources, are sold on the worldwide market by the pound or ton....if our currency was stronger than Britain's Sterling or the Euro, why do we bark at a need for a weak dollar ?
Get the Fed out of manipulating our blessed air backed currency for the benefit, it would seem, to be for blind sided market peacocks....eom.....Happy Fourth...

Tell me how it is...

Our health insurance has just risen 15% to an astounding  $450...we need interstate competition when it comes to health insurance. Fight the pin stripe envelope stuffers....

Lonesome Highway

As I was returning from a trip to the Western USA, I traveled down what is called I-43 a mere 50 minute ride from MKE to home.  70 Mile an hour speed limits tend to depress one who has traveled the German Autobahn on more than one occasion. Safety is of course of primary concern when dealing with high speed travel on less than top rate cement freeways.
German expressways are composed of the best cement recipes in the World.  High speed travel is accompanied with annual Automobile inspections.
In America, auto inspections occur in many if not all major Cities.  Air pollution is the main culprit in that discussion.
If America is to compete with lower taxes and better educated citizens, than why not upgrade our major Highways and byways.
For now I will try not to look on the Kilometers per Hour on my speedometer....all for one and one for the road in a manner of speaking.
Ciao Pilgrims.

Warren Buffett, "I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC.    "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more    than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of  Congress are ineligible for   re-election. The 26th amendment (granting  the right to vote for 18   year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to  be ratified! Why?  Simple!  The people demanded it. That was in 1971...  before computers,  e-mail,  cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the  Constitution,  seven (7)  took 1 year or less to become the law of the  land...all  because of  public pressure.
 Warren Buffet is asking everybody to share this and ask their friends to do likewise.
 *Congressional Reform Act of 2011*
 1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
    2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social    Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the    Social Security
 system immediately. All future funds flow   into the  Social Security system, and Congress participates with the   American  people. It may not be used for
 any other purpose.
 3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
 4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
 5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
 6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
    7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective    1/1/2017.  The American people did not make this contract with    Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.    Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers    envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term's),   then  go home and back to work.
 If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take
 three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Maybe it is time.
 If you agree with the above, pass it on........
