I Am Going To Boycott McDonalds - 02/24/09 01:59 PM
I get so disgusted when I see people get beat up or killed in public places and nobody is willing to put themselves at risk for their neighbor. WHY! BECAUSE THE VICTIMS TURN AROUND AND SUE THE GOOD SAMARITANS OR SOMEHOW MANAGE TO PUNISH A GOOD DEED. Have you seen this news story of the McDonald'd employee who is being denied workman's compensation? Fast food giant McDonald's has denied workers compensation benefits to a minimum wage employee who was shot when he ejected a customer who had been beating a woman inside the restaurant READ IT HERE .
And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed Just to get it all out, what's in my head And I, I am feeling a little peculiar And so I wake in the morning and I step outside And I take A deep breath and I get real high And I scream from the top of my lungs, What's goin' on Note to all: I am not sad. I have simply quoted some of the lyrics of the artists. I'm a 60's and 70's guy and haven't cared for most of the songwriters (2 comments)
2 Questions, 15 Seconds, 45 Days to Get Out; 'What's to Talk About?' Says a Judge I thought this was an interesting artilcle: A Florida Court's 'Rocket Docket' Blasts Through Foreclosure Cases

WELLS FARGO DOWN 25% .... - 02/20/09 01:05 PM
...as the Great Depression of the 21st Century Begins... ...Stock is now trading at $9.15 after dipping under $9.00. Thus Wells Fargo joins GE as a penny stock. I might add that I used to bank with Wells Fargo but when I tried to get a loan for a used car ( a piddly $4000.00) they turned me down. I went to B of A and they gave me money for 3 cars. I switched to B of A.

The "D" Word - 02/20/09 10:43 AM
I am going to say it here. ( I have been saying it privately amongst my friends and family). Yesterday upon market close I said to myself "it's here, we're in it now" We have entered the "GREAT DEPRESSION" of the 21st Century. Let's not forget folks, I was nearly a year early in announcing the Official Beginning of the Recession.
I would have posted this on my Blogging Broker site first but Im having problems with it :(
Shopping For OIL CHANGE -- signs of the (recessionary) times - 02/06/09 02:22 PM
Recession Forces Fresno REAL ESTATE Broker to Shop For Oil Change Normally I would just drop off my vehicle at Michael Toyota and being a “preferred customer” they would change my oil for $29.95 plus tax ( — every oil change is quoted PLUS TAX). But when I called Michael Toyota I found out that I was no longer a preferred customer. It has nothing to do with the fact that we drove across town to Bingham last last year to lease my wife’s car. No, apparently there was an expiration date on my Preferred Customer Card and my preferred customer (0 comments)
