The People Have Sent A Message To Washington!


Recommended Posts










I hope you are right. I want this to be a sign that the tide is starting to turn. This power-hungry administration must wake up and understand that this a nation of free thinkers.

 

To quote Lincoln: "and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth".

Suddenly, a cow walks out into the road, the car hits it full on, and the car comes to a stop.

 

Nancy, in her usual charming manner, says to the chauffeur, "You get out and check--you were driving.."

 

So the chauffeur gets out, checks, and reports that the animal is dead but that it was old.

 

"You were driving, so you go and tell the farmer," says Nancy.

 

Two hours later the chauffeur returns totally plastered, hair ruffled with a big grin on his face.

 

"My God, what happened to you?" asks Nancy ?"

 

The chauffeur replies, "When I got there, the farmer opened his best bottle of malt whisky, the wife gave me a slap-up meal and the daughter made love to me."

 

"What on earth did you say?" asks Nancy.

 

"I just knocked on the door and when it opened I said to them, "I'm Nancy Pelosi's chauffeur, and I've just killed the old cow."

 

My new career move... I want to be the

chauffeur for Nancy Pelosi.... LOL funny stuff...

This article explains in detail all that is wrong with America today. The idea of OVERWHELMING THE SYSTEM clearly outlines Obama’s master plan. It’s scary to think that there is a hidden agenda to break the backs of successful small business people; we are the only hope for America.

 

We truly do need to send a message to Washington, but we need the collective cooperation from all those who oppose the insanity that is occurring these days.

WOW! What a speech. He should run for president, he would have my vote. What he is saying needs to be said. The current administration is killing the fabric of this great country. We need to change, we all need to get involved and stop this madness from happening.

Indian Wanting Coffee:

 

An Indian walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand pulling a male buffalo with the other.

 

He says to the waiter: "Want coffee."

 

The waiter says, "Sure, Chief. Coming right up."

 

He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee..... The Indian drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere and then just walks out.

 

The next morning the Indian returns. He has his shotgun in one hand, pulling another male buffalo with the other.

 

He walks up to the counter and says to the waiter: "Want coffee."

 

The waiter says, "Whoa, Tonto! We're still cleaning up your mess from yesterday. What was all that about, anyway?"

 

The Indian smiles and proudly says, "Training for position in United States Congress: Come in, drink coffee, shoot the bull, Leave mess for others to clean up, Disappear for rest of day."

 

 

VOTE 'EM ALL ALL ALL ALL ALL OUT

 

 

good one... ugh.

Joe,

I see things very differently. I see the previous admin as very power hungry. Constitutionally abusive in fact. But none of the "free thinkers" were around. They were too busy guzzling the swill of the right wing media and spin-doctors.

 

As I, a true independent, free thinking American, see it we have the same garbage, the same disfunctional government with the same divisions. It's just a different party "in power." Now don't think you have to agree with me to be a true independent, free thinking American, I was just clarifying my qualifications. If the Dems weren't so scared of the Reallydumblicans and their filibuster threats then we might actually have a point to complain that the "liberals" were in power. The fact that so little has gotten accomplished is proof that little has changed in Washington. I'm sorry Abe, but the "government of the people, by the people, for the people," perished long ago. The neo-cons successfully converted it to a government of the rich, by the powerful, for the politically well connected. And the Supreme Court's ignorance in ruling that fictional soulless entities (corporations, union, etc.) with no conscience and no mortal ramifications have full right to spend limitlessly just further emphasizes that truth.

 

And just for those who wish to deride me or speculate, yes I lean just left of center. But remember to be progressive means you must move forward, expand, grow. But you must do it wisely. As it is in business, if you aren't growing, you are dying.

I could not begin to explain my disdain for this administration within the pages of this forum. But, I do know a few things: It is your right to think and speak your mind as you see fit. That’s America. What I don’t like are the lies that are being told to the American public, the finger pointing of blame, the division of this country between liberals and conservatives. It has the feel of “two” Americas’, each feeling that if you don’t feel our way you are un-American.

 

The tea party leaders are gaining ground solely because the hard working people in this country are sick and tired of politics. The status quo is not doing the job. Will this group have the momentum to actually make a difference for the long term? I don’t know. But for the first time in a very long time, we see average people, not professional politicians, that are willing to take time out of their daily lives and fight to make a difference.

 

Obama says on national TV, his health plan will not increase taxes…a big lie. The increases in capital gains taxes alone on investment dividends will significantly hurt the average citizen’s retirement investments.

 

Obama does not understand economics. He wants to punish American companies overseas. Well, that ship sailed decades ago. We live in a global economy and many factors, including powerful unions, have sent our corporation overseas. The fact is American companies around the world hold about 500 billion dollars in foreign banks. We need that money back home. Why is money not in our banks? Because of the tax rate, which is the highest in the world. If Obama was smart, he would lower the tax rate and get that money back here. Do you know what an infusion of 500 billion dollars would do for this country?

 

I could go on and on…but I think you know where I stand.

Twas Monday night, November 1, 2010  

 

'Twas the night before elections and all through the town

tempers were flaring, emotions all up and down!

 

I, in my bathrobe with a cat in my lap

had cut off the TV tired of political crap.

 

When all of a sudden there arose such a noise,

I peered out my window, saw Obama and his boys.

 

They had come for my wallet; they wanted my pay

to give to the others who had not worked a day!

 

He snatched up my money; and, quick as a wink,

jumped back on his bandwagon as I gagged from the stink.

 

He then rallied his henchmen who were pulling his cart.

I could tell they were out to tear my country apart!

 

On Fannie, on Freddie, on Biden and Ayers!

On Acorn, on Pelosi, he screamed at the pairs!

 

They took off for his cause, and, as he flew out of sight,

I heard him laugh at the nation who wouldn't stand up and fight!

 

So I leave you to think on this one final note-

IF YOU DON'T WANT SOCIALISM GET OUT AND VOTE!!!!

 

Amen

 

Where did you get this? did you write it?

 

I need to pass this on...

Joe, XRAC I couldn't agree more. I feel the Tea Party is the new way. They may not hold a lot of seats but the noise they make has caused the old school to take notice! I have followed politics for a while and truly believe the current administration, if not checked at midterms, will be the ruination of this United States as we have known it for the last 200 years. GOD bless America. Now if we could just get GOD back to America, if ya know what I mean. Have A Nice day!

 

I love that: Get GOD back to America....priceless!

Just curious, but where were you armchair pundits during the failed eight years of the mistake that was the bush regime? I am none too happy with the minimal expansion of government under President Obama but I complained under baby bush. Where were you guys? Are you smart enough to acknowledge that government expanded greatly and the abuse of powers were extreme under bush? Oh, yeah that's right he was your party so the party was on. Leave the bill for the kids was OK then, but now that you're suffering the hang-over from the juvenile frat-party of the bush regime you're all mad because you're not getting your abuse-the-common-citizen-in-favor-of-corporate-welfare way.

If the Bush years was the cause for all this mess, then why are things worse now? And, why has there not been steps to get us headed in the right direction? At this point, I don't think putting blame on the past is the answer. If a ball team lost in the past with players from the past, how does that affect the team and how it plays now? I understand residual effects, but that only explains the issue to a certain point.

 

I think there are vast amounts of people today that do not like the direction of where this administration is headed. I am one of those people. Spending boat loads of money is not the answer, and I really don't care if a democratic does or or republic does it, it's just wrong. Plus, moving toward bigger government is not the answer either.

HMMM, so TTM what you are saying is Bush was a failure for doing the same things as Obama but Obama is a saint? I don't get it. If Bush was so terrible there should be the same, or more, hatred for Obama's policys. Bush was one of the most liberal conservatives there ever was. There were only a few things he was conservative about: Abortion, Guns and the Military. With Obama we don't even have that.

      There seem to be mixed opinions on what Business System is the best. And also, not all business systems fit a particular repair shop model.
      There are a lot of new players in the past few years: Auto Leap, Protractor, Teckmetrics, Shop Boss, Shop Monkey, and more.
      Are you happy with your system?  What features are important to you?

      If only we had a crystal ball to peak at the next 5 years. As a shop owner, you might still be booked out 2-3 weeks, but with gas prices, inflation, the great resignation, interest rates, and new and used car costs, what do you need to pay attention to in the short term to continue to be profitable and relevant?  Chris Cotton, AutoFix Auto Shop Coaching, Chris Cotton Weekly Blitz Podcast Hunt Demarest, CPA, Paar Mellis and Associates, Business by the Numbers Podcast Joe Marconi, Executive Council Member, Elite Worldwide.

      Key Talking Points
      Your employees should be your greatest strength. Invest in THEM to secure their future and the future of your business. Connect the dots with their goals and the company’s goals. Don’t ignore the people in your shop. Don’t get complacent. Productivity, efficiency, and effective labor rate are the 3 most important numbers in your business Systems, operations, and procedures. SOPs will set you free! Important to train the whole team on “what right looks like” so that everyone is rowing the boat in the same direction. It’s not about the one, it’s about the all. TEAMWORK makes the dream work. The automobile service industry is undergoing a literal revolution. The boomers are increasingly aging out, the number of independent competitors is shrinking fast, being a future top-shop will require much more business sophistication in the future, and the third-party investor feeding frenzy has begun. Smart owners need a strong business strategy, steeped in their legacy and exit strategy, to lead through these changes rather than just playing catch-up. Baby boomers retiring- 80-85% aren't worth making a private equity investment Shop owners coming from outside the industry- thinking from a business perspective  Elevating the industry through training and coaching Profit vs cash- cash brings personal spending habits into play, preserving cash Will it slow down? It matters what you do during the good times that will help you survive the bad times. Don’t let car count carry you. Redefine who you are and honed in
