How You Doin'?

Don't invest? That's your problem. Concerned that the rich get richer even if they aren't rich?

It's a given that most people who don't plan for the future do so because they've frittered their hard earned gains on Fritos, ice cream and beer.

Kudos to those who decided they'd like to take a vacation after completing the 9-5 routine for 40 plus years. If you don't know where I'm going with this take a gander at the latest economic news.

The Trump economic boom is picking up steam as American heads into the final weeks of the president’s first year in office.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Nowcast, which attempts to estimate economic output based on the latest releases of data, now says GDP appears to be growing at a 4% annualized rate in the fourth quarter. That is the highest level on record for the Nowcast, which was launched just two years ago.

Chicago: My Kind Of Town

Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin has requested UN Peacekeeping Forces to the City of Chicago to cut down on violence in the Windy City. Boykin says peacekeeping forces are needed to fight the “quiet genocide” in the streets of Chicago.

It'd be interesting as to what Rahm Emmanuel told this guy behind closed doors. My guess is, "You're fired!"

I Think They Want Their Own TV Show

Looking at these people I understand their decision.

An entire family of four is transgender

An entire family – man, woman, son and daughter – in Arizona is transgender.
The father identifies as a woman. His  fiancée, the mother-to-be, identifies as a man. The son considers himself a girl and, of course, the daughter thinks she’s actually a boy. An entire transgender family, all under one roof.

Daniel Harrott was born a woman, while his fiancée, Shirley Austin was born a man. Both have previously been married.
Eleven year-old Mason and 13 year-old Joshua have also switched sexes.
“The whole family is in transition,” Austin said in an interview with KJZZ, which reports the two adults are teaching each other to adopt “traditional” gender roles.

Horrible News You Might Not Know

jim acosta

On December 14, 2017, CNN’s Jim Acosta claimed America has witnessed “1,552 mass shootings” since the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary School.

This means Acosta is claiming an average of approximately 310 mass shootings a year for each of the past five years.

This could be a bogus report since it comes from Breitbart. I'll have to check out another source, say MSNBC fir accuracy. Oh wait, finding this story from them would be like me finding my errant golf shot at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

Buckeyes Are Nuts

It's not easy living in Ohio during football season. It's even worse living in Columbus, Ohio. For this Iowan who has lived in Ohio since 1989 I am and always will be a Hawkeye. Ohioans do not understand this. They'll ask, Why would you support a loser? Easy answer. Because when we destroy you as we did this year it makes my food taste better.

Let me repeat what I've always said about the major difference between Iowans and Ohioans: When I moved here in the latter part of the decade of the 80's I received in the mail a notice from the Iowa Department of Education. It read in part: Upon my departure the intelligence quotients of both States rose dramatically.

I'll be having lunch today with a good friend, a hardcore Ohio State Buckeye football fan. His very large man cave is loaded with Buckeye memorabilia. When something of this nature is given to me I personally pass it on to him. Why would I want to keep this nonsense in my home? I know folks who adorn their Christmas trees with buckeyes which we all know is a worthless nut. Anyway, this guy is so pro-Buck if I came across a dropping from a St. Bernard and etched OSU on it he'd place it on his mantle as a treasured keepsake. The man lives thirty minutes north of me in Upper Sandusky. Ohioans can't even keep their geography straight. An hour and a half north of Upper Sandusky is Sandusky, Ohio. Don't ask me why. I wasn't born here.

Sixty miles west of Dublin is the town of Bellefontaine. It's a quaint community. Read and pronounce the name of the town again. Native Ohioans pronounce it as 'Bell-fountain'. Don't ask me why.

This morning I was looking at my favorite laugh for the day site, and what should appear but a photo of three nitwits celebrating the recently departed corpse of, I presume, a die-hard(no pun intended) Buckeye.

God help us all.

Dumb Laws For The State Of Ohio

I was at the DMV in Hilliard, Ohio this morning and saw a poster reading: It is illegal to fish for whales in Ohio on Sunday. This was perplexing considering the only body of water of any size in Ohio is Lake Erie, a freshwater lake.

Every state has nincompoop laws. How do I know? It's because politicians come up with and pass them and who is more stupid than a politician?. Regardless, I've come up with a number really ridiculous laws for different communities in Ohio. I'm certain your state, too, has the equivalent unless you don't have politicians.
