"Great Recession"

Recommended Posts

One of the Problems is people are scared to let go of any Money.

 

I have several Business Ideas that I was talking to Friends about recently and they kept saying to hold off till things get better. One is a Small Restaurant (an Italian Bistro), one is a Labor Only Mechanic Shop where the customer brings us the Parts to install on their Vehicle and I charge only $50.00 an Hour. A third is a small Shuttle Service, taking People to the Dog Track that is about 30 Miles away 3 Nights a Week and taking small Groups on Day Trips using a 12 Passenger Van. How is the Economy going to get better if everyone holds off?

I like your idea about the dog track and would like to roll my 201K into your idea, at least I would have some fun and couldn't blame anyone else for steeling my money.

I always look for the dog thats taking a dump before the race. Works better than my stocks research.

Loosing money in Vegas is also more promising and entertaining than getting "RIPPED" in the "STOCK MARKET"....................

We do know the government can shorten the downturn by pumping money into the economy

 

FDR did that in the 30's and it made things worse. The depression was over in the rest of the world while it lingered here. The Japanese did it in the 90's and their recession lasted 10 years. The Japanese also bailed out their banks who used the money to pay bonuses and buy other banks but would not lend out the money. If any of the people in Washington had half a brain they could look to history to at least see what NOT to do. My theory is that they just do not give a rats *ss. It's the only way to explain their stupid and irresponsible actions.

Just courious...... these giant Companies that are laying off thousands of People, are any of those Jobs over seas or are all of them here in the USA?

 

I work for a large earth moving equipment manufacturer...President Obama visited one of our facilities yesterday, Feb 12. To date, all layoffs reported have been here in the US. But that's because the vast majority of our equipment is built here, and no ones buying them right now. There is, however, eventually going to be a global impact. A few global offices are in danger of being closed.

These are going to be trying times.

 

It's hard for me to spend money if I might be losing my job soon.

 

I'm in Construction and the work is slowing down because of spending freezes.

I liked the way Obama said that the "pork" bill would put people back to work at Caterpillar and then the CEO contradicted him a few minutes later saying more layoffs were on the way. At least the CEO knows how to be truthful.

If your going to add Lies and BS to other members posts, try to be, a little less obvious. This has become your, 'Trademark" on this site. Just like your IDOL, OBAMA the GREAT, you mix words, lie and alter others words. Now Obama and his Gang, are in Charge. You have your dream wish, "Your Driving the Bus". Only time will tell have far you and your Obama will drive us into the SWAMP. Then you and other Obama Worshipers, can post your Hysterical, BS emotions, and perhaps, be out of work yourself. By the way Caterpillar ,is one the most respected, companies in the World, especially to Farmers, Construction and our Military. I'm sure your list of 'life long achievement' is equal to or greater the Caterpillar's. That is the reason, you can sit so high on your pompous perch, and talk, Sh--. Call up Obama, and ask him, for some more food stamps, or maybe a six pack of 40oz, KC's.

You modified his post. That is not what he said. Obama totally spoke when he should have kept his mouth shut.

 

I know the details on how this unfolded last week, but really can't say much more than that.

It was just a poor example I guess of thinking in the current Business climate and

over the last few years that many "CEO"s of large American Companies were dealt

record saleries and bonuses while at the same time their companies are bleeding to

death..............That is not called Leadership and is more a "HURRAY FOR ME" and

my co-conspirators and "SCREW THE FUTURE" of the Company and the hard working

honest play by the rules workers???????????????

WOW!!! :lurk:

 

By the way - you left out the fact that Obama told America to sacrifice and turn down their thermostats, then he turned up the thermostats in the white house to 72 degrees so he could wear his hawaiian shirts.

Typical Democrat. "Do as I say not as I do". Funny thing is that George W. Bush's house in Crawford is one of the most environmentally friendy and energy efficient homes in the country. I read an article about the house and it was pretty impressive. On the other hand, Al Gore's house is massive and uses tons of electricity. The Dems are just hypocrites and always have been.

I was just courious, as when Microsoft and other Large Companies post Layoffs of 3000, 5000, 10000, etc....... how many of those people are "Over Seas" or do they Lay Off the USA Workers first because they are Paid higher wages. They said over 300,000 People lost their Jobssince 2008 and was wandering how many of those were "Over seas" Jobs.

Here in Utah, we cut sales tax on food items several years ago to 3% from 6.25%. There was a proposal to drop it completely. Why tax a necessity?? :nonono:

 

Now that our state revenues are dropping like crazy, our legislature wants to increase the food tax again :banghead: We're not buying cars and big ticket items so raising food sales taxes will certainly make people want to go out and buy more. :censored: Nothing like kicking the people when they're down :headscratch::cry:

 

Enough of that, down to the serious stuff. I am planning my semi annual Vegas road trip sometime in June and again over Halloween. :spend: My last Vegas trip in November for the Shelby museum re-opening :happy feet: was such a success it wll be hard to top but we'll try. I did put $10 in a nickle slot and win $136. I proceeded to leave most of that at the Corner Cafe and Museum Gift Shop.

 

I received a copy of the northern Utah cruise and car show schedule for this season, starting on April 1st. I'll be sure to attend a bunch of those and supporting the Sonic, strip mall or local drive in or pizza place.

 

It seems to me if Obama really wants to end this recession, give the money directly to the people, not big companies. We'll spend it. We don't have CEOs or stock holders. We just have wives, girlfriends and teenagers. Problem solved.

I didn't hit the census. I just went by a Wild-Ass Guess.

Don't worry, with Obama taking the census into the White House control, there'll be at least 27 million imaginary Americans to make up that difference.
