JOBSEARCH: The risk inherent in the status quo of employment

Monday, June 30, 2014 


Seems like this is a trend to jump on or tap into. Always thought that “women” made great “entry-pre-newers”, if an only if, they can over come “risk”. Over my career, I’ve seen several women make the leap of faith to their own business. What I try and point out to everyone (men and women) is that the “status quo is not risk free”. I counsel job seekers and potential job seekers that they must rigorously and honestly evaluate just how much is at risk in their current state. One tool is my “how much money do I need to have to get another job”. Age, level of education, hotness of field, hotness of your geography, level of position you’d accept, what’s your burn rate, how do you look, and unfortunately sex all combine in strange complex calculus to determine the risk of the status quo. In more than one instance, I have seen that calculation result in both gals and guys taking a different view of being your own boss. At least then, your fate is in your own hands. It’s a decision I’ve made three times with mixed results. Your mileage may and will vary. 

Anyway, have good week, which ends with “Independence Day”, isn’t that a coincidence?

POLITICAL: BHO44 impeachment?

Obama Impeachment: GOP Faces Three HUGE Obstacles

Michael Thomas
June 23rd, 2014

*** begin quote ***

It does appear that the Repubs may be waiting for the midterm elections to take back the Senate, and restock the House even stronger.  In which case they may be waiting for a pretext to impeach both Obama and Biden. In which case the new Speaker’s wife just may move into Michelle Obama’s bedroom.

*** end quote ***

I have oft opined (not that anyone listens to me) that “impeachment” of a President is the power of the MINORITY party to remove a President that damages their future chances to “suck at the teat of Gooferment”. (Why else would they?)

I cite the R’s with Nixon. He resigned ONLY because the R’s said “you’re toast”. Not that they care too much about him, BUT he was going to take all of the other lifetime R’s down with him. (Rats and the sinking ship come to mind!)

This blog post illustrates another “impeachment method”.

Should the Sheeple be so “offended” by the sitting President’s conduct, (which I think is “egregious” even by today’s standards), that they vote in the opposite party with a sufficient plurality and majority (particularly in the Senate), that impeachment is a foregone conclusion.

While drastic, maybe the Sheeple can be interested to the point of voting.

Obamacare, immigration, VA, and the collapse of “foreign policy” might just be enough to have these sheep look away for DWTS and vote for real “hope and change”.

I hope that the Libertarian Party doesn’t shill for the D’s and save them.

JOBSEARCH: Shadowstats says 20% unemployment rate

Stone Cold Proof That Government Economic Numbers Are Being Highly Manipulated
Michael Snyder
The Economic Collapse
June 26th, 2014

*** begin quote ***

The Federal Reserve would have us believe that the unemployment rate in the U.S. has fallen from a peak of 10.0 percent during the recession all the way down to 6.3 percent now.

But according to, the broadest measure of unemployment is well over 20 percent and has kept rising since the end of the last recession.

And according to the Federal Reserve’s own numbers, the percentage of working age Americans with a job has barely increased over the past four years…

*** end quote ***


And I have no doubt that’s closer to the truth.

Add all the folks going on disability, “retiring early” wether they want to or not, and the young?

It’s a national disaster and a disgrace.


Slash the Gooferment!

USDA, HHS, Homeland “Security” …

Sorry but we are SO broke!

RANT: Ahmed Abu Khatallah aka “political theater”

Suspect in Benghazi Attacks Pleads Not Guilty
Ahmed Abu Khatallah pleaded not guilty to U.S. allegations that he helped carry out the 2012 attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that led to the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

At a hearing on Saturday afternoon, lawyers for the Justice Department said they intend to bring a superseding charge, which could result in Mr. Khatallah being eligible for the death penalty.

Anyone else think this is “political theater”?

POLITICAL: Murder is murder

So That’s Why They Kept the Drone Kill Memo Secret
By David Swanson
War Is A
June 25, 2014

*** begin quote ***

The memo considers a section of the U.S. code dealing with the murder of a U.S. citizen by another U.S. citizen abroad, drawing on another section that defines murder as “the unlawful killing of a human being with malice aforethought.”

David Barron, the memo’s author, needed a loophole to make murder-by-missile a lawful killing rather than an unlawful killing, so he pulls out the “public authority justification” under which the government gets to use force to enforce a law. It’s a novel twist, though, for the government to get to use force to violate the law, claiming the violation is legal on the Nixonian basis that it is the government doing it.

Alternatively, Barron suggests, a government gets to use force if doing so is part of a war. This, of course, ignores the U.N. Charter and the Kellogg Briand Pact and the illegality of wars, as well as the novelty of claiming that a war exists everywhere on earth forever and ever. (None of Barron’s arguments justify governmental murder on U.S. soil any less than off U.S. soil.)

*** end quote ***

When the “King” kills his subjects, then we have tyranny.

Is there any doubt that the Gooferment has “crossed a very important Rubicon” with this memo?

No one can have any doubts now.
