How We Stopped Worrying And Learn To Love Greed

In the 1980’s, the ME Generation, brought about unbridled greed……Greed is not something new it has been a part of our society from the beginning….however the 80’s set up the climate for massive greed and avarice…..For 30 years greed has been the driving force in this country……

But what happened to make greed the driving force of society?

Grow, Grow, Let It Grow

Native Americans have been crapped on for over 200 years…..whites have hunted then for sport, stole their land, suppressed their culture and starved them……how could they ever rebound from the mass persecution?

First, it was cigarette sells that offered some minor cash compensation….then came gambling which offered a better compensation package….what more could they possibly do to become more self-sufficient?

It seems what began in Colorado has grown into a multimillion dollar industry and spread quickly to other states….but now Native Americans have another weapon at their disposal……MARIJUANA!

Could tribal marijuana be as big a moneymaker as tribal casinos? The federal government has cleared the way for Native American tribes across the country to grow and sell marijuana on their land, reports the AP. The Justice Department says growing and selling will be allowed on reservations—even in states where the drug remains illegal—as long as the tribes follow the same federal guidelines in place in states that have legalized marijuana, including not selling it to minors and not transporting it to areas where it’s outlawed.

“The tribes have the sovereign right to set the code on their reservations,” the US attorney for North Dakota tells the Los Angeles Times. Pot grown on reservations won’t be subject to federal or state taxes, but it’s not clear how many tribes will go into the marijuana business: Many oppose legalization, and the Yakama Nation in Washington state, where pot is legal, has banned it on the reservation. The US attorney for Oregon says that so far, only three tribes of the 566 across the country have shown any interest.

Business – Opec output cut talk heats up

We Americans are smiling all the way to the pumps…..gas is down continues to drop, slightly, but dropping nonetheless…..

If you know anything about the spot markets….the question should be asked….how long will this lower price continue?

Most likely we will not hear from most people until the prices start to rise a again and then….some moron will blame Obama for the increase…..

Try-to keep up!

Some Do The Right Thing

I am sure that many Americans remember that horrific ferry disaster in South Korea that cost many many children their lives….of course the Korean government has arrested many that worked for the ill fated ferry and its parent company……

I wrote awhile back that the CEO of the ferry company took responsibility for the disaster and immediately went out and wrote and note and killed himself…….after reading that news I wrote that unlike the US people in other countries, especially Asian, that take their responsibility seriously to the point that they would kill themselves because of the embarrassment they have caused the country and their families.

I wrote that it was a shame that American business people cannot do something similar…..like take responsibility for their actions that cause a disaster, ie the 2008 crash……

I bring all this up again…because it has happened again…….

A South Korean man involved in planning an outdoor pop concert where 16 people were killed after falling through a ventilation grate was found dead today in an apparent suicide. The man, 37, an employee of the Gyeonggi Institute of Science and Technology Promotion, was found dead at around 7am in Seongnam, the city south of Seoul where yesterday’s accident occurred, said city spokesman Kim Nam-jun. The site of his death was not far from where 16 people watching a performance by 4Minute, a girls’ band that is popular across Asia, were killed when the ventilation grate they were standing on collapsed. Eleven other people were seriously injured.

It was believed that the man, who was questioned by police last night over the accident, leaped from the top of a 10-story building. In a televised briefing today, Kim said the death toll could rise. Of the 11 people treated at hospitals, eight had life-threatening injuries to the abdomens or lungs, he said. Most of those who were killed were men in their 30s and 40s, while five were women in their 20s and 30s, fire officials said. The collapse came as South Korea is still struggling with the aftermath of a ferry disaster in April that left more than 300 people dead or missing.

I say again…..American business people should be so serious about their actions……..but NOPE!  These parasites like Jaime Dimon will continue their fleecing of the American consumer and any harm they do they will get the Federal government to pass a law that will protect them and possibly allow them to do the same thing all over again without any consequences…..

Personally, I like the idea of these bastards taking dull responsibility for their actions and even suicide if that is what it takes to eliminate these butt monkeys….the American consumer means NOTHING to these capitalist slugs……NO one protects the people from the exploitation.

If them committing suicide drives the point home…..then I say…Let the Bastards Die!

Syria-to-Ukraine Wars Send U.S. Defense Stocks to Records – Bloomberg

We Americans have been programmed to understand only winners and losers….could explain the lack of interest in soccer (futbol)…….

The say there are no winners in any war….I beg to differ and this article makes the case.

I remember back in my protest days…..there was a saying…..”War is good business, invest your sons”….
