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.
