I must be getting to bed.
If by "there" you mean "peak insanity" we might be getting pretty close.
No, I didn't video it. I should have.
I had Carnitas again for dinner tonight. That's three nights in a row. It's soooo good.
The meeting was as ridiculous as I figured it would be. The "Obama rules" actually consist of their own new rules to keep anyone going over 29 hours that is part time because they have 49 employees. They're right on the cusp so in order to avoid having to "buy health insurance for all of you" they are making shit up as they go. Can't wait to burst their bubble. The owner didn't show up, just my boss. She actually called the ACA "this shit" in the "formal" meeting. Stay corporate errrr classy.
And on that note, I'm off to work. Laterzzzz

Don't remind me about the ACA. I have to go to my work meeting this afternoon to listen to my bosses rant about "Obama Laws". It should be a good time. I should probably videotape it.
I thought the real work was to have more investigations...also, BENGHAZI!
I haven't checked PE ratios lately on the big Dow stocks, I'm guessing they're incredibly overpriced.
They're trying to re-inflate the RE bubble/Credit bubble now and stocks ARE a bubble. Not to say they won't try to keep pumping but I just don't see this as sustainable.
Oh, for ya'll that missed this last night..Not quite as entertaining as the "shitty deal" but still.. Daily Kos: Internal Wall Street pitchbook shows that you, the clients, are suckers
Indeed, Counterpointer. I mentioned the other day that I felt the end was nearing. Too many indicators are back to 2008 and nothing has changed structurally in the economy that would say to me "this time is different". A crash is all but inevitable. The peons are making less than before and it doesn't appear the credit spigots being reopened is going to fix it this time. Maybe they're wising up. Also, yesterday was around 90 here and it was the worst day I've had in a few weeks. It doesn't appear the slowdown was seasonal ( I suspected it wasn't).
Bedtime for Bonzo.
Who needs a youtube video? We can watch political debates to see psychopaths.
Yeah, and we're not invited to the party.
It's been downhill but still...dick pic or boning mistress on taxpayer money while married with children and a member of the "family values" party. One of these things is not like the other.
Did ya'll catch Wolf Blitzer looking like an ass after he asked some poor woman that had survived the tornado if she "thanked the Lord" that she survived. She laughed and said: "Actually, I'm an atheist". Idiot. So I guess those that died just didn't pray hard enough or just weren't worthy of saving.
I'm not sure why Weiner running is so scandalous considering the dude that used tax payer money to go visit his mistress in Argentina while telling his constituents he was hiking the Appalachian trail just won a House seat in S.C. Which is worse? Sending a dick pic on twitter or boning your mistress on the taxpayer's dime while lying to your family and constituents?
Ray, if I could only post some of the stuff I listen to on a daily basis.
Oh noice... Daily Kos: Internal Wall Street pitchbook shows that you, the clients, are suckers
Most of the caregiver stuff here is live in and a pittance besides room and board. If you work with the one of the home health care companies it's about 10 bucks an hour, tops.
Yep, total burnout is very close. I can still almost pretend to be civil but it is getting increasingly more difficult. It's past time to go.
Caregiver's here make next to nothing. Minimum wage job, basically. Condo cleaners make more with less stress.
I actually went with a g/f of mine yesterday on my day off to clean some condos with her. The money is decent and I don't have to listen to any of the insanity I deal with daily. No human contact! Yes! I'm also looking into starting my own "roach coach" or food truck but I want to do a specialty type truck. I've been there 8 years and absolutely never am late nor do I call in sick and I'm trustworthy and basically manage the place. I am not replaceable anytime soon. Their bad. Tired of the wingnuttiness and especially having to listen to my boss drunk ranting about "Obama Laws". Life is simply too short. She can hire another one of her wingnut friends like the last one that called in sick 2 out of 3 shifts for a year.
This would make it so only the girl that comes in behind me could cover for me which is impossible. I'm going to make it easier on them and tell them they can move me to part time...immediately. I've been interviewing for other jobs. Had enough of their ungrateful bullshit.
He's still with the new company (since Christmas) but he just got moved off the big job they had (it's almost done) to a smaller job. It's a good sign they kept him over as they've laid quite a few off recently. It appears they like him and are planning on keeping him. Still no benefits. I have my work meeting tomorrow that is going to explain the evils of "Obama Laws" so I can hardly wait to hear this spiel. My boss said nobody that is part time is allowed to fill in for full time people anymore because...OBAMA!
The beach can be busy without the bars in town feeling it. We're the local economy where I am at. There wasn't even any traffic driving home this afternoon though. Not a good sign.
I made crock pot carnitas yesterday. We are having it again tonight with salsa verde, pico de gallo, mexican cheese blend and guacamole in burrito wraps. I don't think I'll ever do BBQ pulled pork again after having it this way. Holy crap this is good. Work is dead as a doornail. Still.
Off to work, have a good day gang.
And yet another "since 2008" comparison. What has changed that makes this time different?
I think that's us. Teh irony...it burns.
Bruce, what does any of that have to do with the price of tea in China? I am actually going with a friend of mine today on a job interview of sorts and I'm talking to another friend about starting a small business because I have decided I am tired of working for the insane people I work for and dealing with the even more insane patrons that I deal with. You haven't a clue of the hand that was dealt me so it's probably best not to ASSume. I actually did go to college until my Army Dad decided to try and off himself with rat poison in Panama while I was paying my own way through college because he was too busy gambling what little money we had away and drinking it. I had to drop out to take care of my Mother who was understandably falling apart and stuck in Panama at the time. I've spent my life taking care of others instead of myself, I realize that's as foreign concept to some here.
I'm reading the third book in the "Hunger Games" series. I can see our society devolving to that level, it wouldn't take much.
Yeah, because folks that argue for gun control are apt to snap at any minute and go on a shooting spree. Do you even read the stuff you write before you hit post to see if it sounds...sane?
Why doesn't Texas just go ahead and do away with education? Isn't that the plan? Tell the little brats Jeebus rode a dinosaur and show them how to flip burgers. Education complete.
This would be a good start but I'm thinking about the whole barn door and horse thingy... Daily Kos: Tom Harkin introduces Glass-Steagall bill
Sarah Palin doesn't like folks using the "R" word. #JS
From the feeds I'm getting about two dozen dead are kids from the school.
Sadly, it appears many of those injured and killed are going to be at the elementary school that's been hit. Don't watch live coverage if you have a weak stomach, it's horrific
37 dead so far in Oklahoma tornadoes and that's not the final count.
It must be coincidence, surely they wouldn't manipulate fuel prices?
They would if Soros would send me my damn check.
I don't think he is psychic, he probably just follows CR's twitter feed. New posts show up there before the mortgage pig posts.
Mhm, getting closer. I have my fingers crossed it's just another pullback but I'm thinking maybe not. The weather is going to get hot this week and we're supposed to see 90's for the first time this year. That usually brings them back inside to the bar, if it doesn't, it's not seasonal.

Maybe the ants are actually trying to save us from the electronics?
