I think I’ve mentioned that I turned off my cable at the beginning of the year. At the time it was a matter of expense. Cable was expendable. Since then I’ve found that life is better without cable. Much better. I think I’ve also mentioned that I’m working with a business coach, he’s a Buffini coach and they have a certain way of doing things. When I went down to Monterey to see Brian Buffini he said “Turn off your cable, get rid of it. If something big happens, somebody will tell you”. And for the most part I’ve found that to be accurate. I can watch a lot of stuff online. Hulu.com is good for that and the big news stations all have their shows online either in real time or moments later. If something happens that interests me I’ll go take a look. I listen to NPR in the car and there’s a lot less noise, and no commercials on that station. If I’m driving and the Giants are on I’ll listen to the game. I listened to the 9ers game the other day. I hear there are a few teams in Oakland.
I hear there’s an election going on. I just went through Garamendi’s mailer. Here’s one that matters. H.R. 5793, the Make It in America Act. You’d almost think that his people were reading PBE. Oh yeah, they are! It closes the nine corporate loopholes that I’ve been complaining about that allowed our jobs to go to…let’s see, where was it? Oh yeah BANGALORE! And what the hell is “Customer Delight“?
The key to this economy is getting everyone back to work, but not just back to work as a barista at Starbucks but back to real jobs. And the real jobs back to the real salary. Seriously. We can’t give you a raise or we’ll have to lay you off. Really? Why then isn’t Bill Foley out of work? He got a 171% raise. You teabaggers want to protest something? Protest that. There’s the true injustice in this country. FNF employees being laid off and then brought back as temporary workers at 30% of their salary with no benefits while Bill Foley buys another winery. Obama ain’t doing nothing to you clowns but getting you health insurance and a job. Bill Foley is bending America over a barrel and we’re saying “Thank you sir may I have another”. Enough is enough with that guy. Add Chalk Hill to the boycott list -the deal went through.
Good luck getting that out of your head today.
