“Pho Keene Great”

I like clever people…..for instance that Navy pilot that used his vapor trail to draw a penis in the sky (of course he took it on the chin for his creativity) but that took talent to get the proportion properly align so that it came out perfectly…

Twitter post by @livgrantier: the clouds in omak today😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

Then I found another clever person……this time it is the name of an eatery…..Pho Keene Great Restaurant…….

A New Hampshire restaurant that’s preparing to open has removed a sign advertising its name over concerns that it sounded like profanity, the AP reports. The name of the Vietnamese restaurant in a public building next to City Hall in Keene is a play on a type of soup, which is spelled P-H-O, but is pronounced “fuh.” The restaurant calls itself by the name of the soup, followed by the words “Keene Great.” City Manager Elizabeth Dragon said it’s intended to sound like profanity and that owner Isabelle Jolie didn’t get permission to hang any sign. Jolie said she doesn’t think the name is offensive. Dragon tells New Hampshire Public Radio the city wants Jolie to be successful, but that it has to strike a balance. Both sides plan to meet soon.

Sorry but I would eat there…I appreciate a sense of humor….try it they might like it……screw what the “Dragon Lady” thinks (sorry had to use that reference…old farts will understand)

I think there are more important issue facing this city than to worry about the name of some small eatery…..but as usual those no humor busy bodies will pee on everyone’s parade because they just don’t get it.

I am finished for the day….More wine and relaxation…..TTFN!

The Rich Get Richer

A Sunday and I feel like the idle rich……sitting in my garden sipping wine….eating cheese and nuts and fruit…..and enjoying the day without a care……

I try to make IST an entertaining blog and a little FYI thrown in……

Today I want to try and explain the saying “the rich get richer and the poor get poorer”……..this article in VOX will help one understand what is happening here in the US…..

Something massive and important has happened in the United States over the past 50 years: Economic wealth has become increasingly concentrated among a small group of ultra-wealthy Americans.

You can read lengthy books on this subject, like economist Thomas Piketty’s recent best-seller, Capital in the Twenty-First Century(the book runs 696 pages and weighs in at 2.5 pounds). You can see references to this in the campaigns of major political candidates this cycle, who talk repeatedly about how something has gone very wrong in America.

Donald Trump’s motto is to make America great again, while Bernie Sanders’s campaign focused on reducing income inequality. And there’s a reason this message is resonating with voters:

It’s grounded in 50 years of reality.

This article tells the tale that few can grasp……to massage the rich then the poor must pay…it is that simple and to pretend anything other is a LIE!

There are so many people that cannot grasp just how this system works….hopefully this will help in some small way…..

A new Congress and a Congresswoman has proposed, AOC, a 70% rate of the uber rich…..I have NO problem with that…..will not fly because most of those in our Congress are uber rich…..they will not vote to tax themselves….I give her an “A” for the try…..but disappointment waits.

And now the old professor will just sit and smile at the day…..I found an excellent Malbec from Argentina…..

May you be well and safe…….chuq
