John Boehner is a Tool

Of the tea party and of the other kind. He promised an up or down vote on the CR (Continuing Resolution on the debt ceiling) to Harry Reid and has been since roped into shredding the Affordable Care Act along with the rest of the Tea Party.

Everybody has a heard at least some little thing about how bad it would be for the country to default on it's debt obligations. If this goes to November 1st then it is likely our debt would be downgraded, interest rates for borrowing would go up, and serious, ugly inflation would emerge. Not only that, it is sure the Chinese would move to become the world's reserve currency.

The psychology of playing chicken is now being analyzed. It seems that each party has to be willing to drive it's car over the cliff. Not only willing but actively aiming to the point where it becomes too late to turn away. It will only be parties other than Obama and the Tea Party that can save us from doing a Thelma & Louise.

Yep

That's really me, and everything is all OSHA and EPA regulated. OSHA actually comes in and fines the place once a year, and everyone stays fat and happy. They say that the carbon black is, and I quote, "No more harmful than the bleach under your kitchen sink". My reply was, "I'm not huffing bleach all day". 15 years under my belt come January.

Been to the Vulcan. Nice connection!

C'mon John

Don't tell me that's you!?! You gotta get OSHA and the EPA in there. But then again, if it's really Tennessee, I guess you gotta walk that line hummin' the Cumberland Blues!

Man, you gotta go see the great God Vulcan statue in Biirmingham, Alabama. He must be the protector God of your workplace!

Rubber

I work in a rubber manufacturing plant. We custom mix rubber into a slab or strip, and then parts are extruded from that. I have a very close connection to Cumberland Blues, and I listen to it almost every morning. Here's a pic after a good 10 hour day.

Gainful, but not really profitable ...lol

I am a ft student, transferring to a Unv or CSU (CA State Unv.) in fall 2013. I am a Poli-Sci/Legal major with a minor in Communications.
I would like to try my hand in either international law or possibly becoming a paralegal to practice in another country(or equivalent of a paralegal/international law). This year I became an intern for the re-election campaign for Congressmen John Garamendi ( I know, stay away from Politics in the world of the Dead ) ... I am really hoping that a decent job can be obtained post graduation (with the economy so topsy-turvy, who knows?) - Ahhh....college loan repayments await! If the organization of the GD needs a fairly smart nerd type to read over legal paperwork - Ive got a pretty good resume so far ...lol
I am super broke but happy ( how can one not be in northern CA - money or not? ). With any spare time I volunteer for a variety of solid causes( prop 37 anyone - or at least i feel they are worthy causes) and I also volunteer as a radio dj on Fri nights/Free Speech & Non-Profit KPFZ 88.1FM Lake County, CA Community Radio. I get to play my favorite band to a fairly cool listening audience.
Its been awesome to read these other posts by various folks across the country and globe regarding something as serious as employment. I hope someday (30 yrs from now) I will be able to post that me & mine are retiring to some exotic place on the other side of the planet. thanks for the inspiration people - have a great day everybody - peace, Boogie

No complaints here...job (or anything wise).

I work in IT Desktop Support for a large U.S. Bank based in Liverpool (U.K.).

The work and environment is very good indeed...no major pressure and the opportunity to take in some great sounds during the day and when i go out for my lunch hour around the city.

After doing a bit of shopping, it's always nice and relaxing to sit on the waterfront listening to a hot show.

It's just as well that i have loads of spare time to listen to music as i have 6 x 2TB external hard drives bursting with mainly official live downloads of all the bands i'm into, plus many more shows i receive from 2 great friends in the States (Castaic (CA) and Nottingham (MD)).

Thankfully my working hours are very good too...07:00am > 15:00pm.

The wife and i are hoping to retire in the next 18 months to 2 years to maybe the Greek Islands or Turkey...bring it on !.

Later,

Ian.
