FUN: ex WalMart greeter

FROM FRAU’S HS CHUM (She’s evil!)

*** begin quote ***

So after landing my new job as a Wal-Mart greeter, a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day….

About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting woman walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.

I said pleasantly, ‘Good morning and welcome to Walll-Mart. Nice children you have there. Are they twins?’

The ugly woman stopped yelling long enough to say, ‘Hell no, they ain’t twins. The oldest one’s 9, and the other one’s 7. Why the hell would you think they’re twins? Are you blind, or stupid?’

So I replied, ‘I’m neither blind nor stupid, Ma’am, I just couldn’t believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Wall-Mart.’

My supervisor said I probably wasn’t cut out for this line of work…

POLITICAL: Too-Big-To-Fail’ still

Who Wants To Be ‘Too-Big-To-Fail’?
Posted by Mark A. Calabria

*** begin quote ***

I’ve argued that the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill does not end “too-big-to-fail”, that is the belief that certain companies are implicitly backed by the government because policy-makers are unlikely to let said institutions actually fail. By naming some companies as ”systemically important” — as required by Dodd-Frank — the government is actually sending a signal as to who is likely to be bailed out.

What a sham. The Gooferment controls the “corporations” and visa versa.

The IRS can end “too big to fail” with one law from Congress.

“No corporation can have a balance sheet of more than 1T$”.

End of discussion.

Let the chips fall where they may.

No bailouts.
