Unemployment, Blame it on Hurricane Sandy

I call Bull$hit !! There is no way all these job losses are due to Hurricane Sandy !!

Unemployment, Blame it on Hurricane Sandy

They’re blaming unemployment on me !!

You may recall my mentioning that when not here, I do weather. I work for a company based out of Maryland and am an ‘Advisor’ on the Severe and ‘Tropical’ board. I along with my colleagues tracked and covered Hurricane Sandy before many in the US even knew she existed. My first broadcast on Sandy was 5:00 AM EDT 10/24/2012 as a Tropical storm and my last was 12:00 PM EDT 10/30/12 as a post tropical storm. I / we know the areas impacted by Sandy. I digress … was the recent layoff / termination of over 18,500+ folks by Hostess due to Hurricane Sandy ?

Hostess Brands is Closed – The wind down means the closure of 33 bakeries, 565 distribution centers, approximately 5,500 delivery routes, 570 bakery outlet stores and the loss of 18,500 jobs.

Hell no it wasn’t !! So shut the FK up blaming the shitty economy on a storm from over a month ago.

Speaking of which Continue reading

Author Carol Roth gives a brilliant response to the insufferable Piers Morgan when he displays his ignorance about the Second Amendment. via lewrockwell.com:

Piers Morgan displays his ignorance about the Second Amendment - Carol Roth put him in his place.

NBC broadcaster Bob Costas used his halftime segment on ”Sunday Night Football” to advocate for gun control following this weekend’s murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher, causing an immediate debate on social media.

In a segment about 90 seconds long, Costas paraphrased and quoted extensively from

a piece by Fox Sports columnist Jason Whitlock. I would argue that your rationalizations speak to how numb we are in this society to gun violence and murder. We’ve come to accept our insanity. We’d prefer to avoid seriously reflecting upon the absurdity of the prevailing notion that the second amendment somehow enhances our liberty rather than threatens it.

How many young people have to die senselessly? How many lives have to be ruined before we realize the right to bear arms doesn’t protect us from a government equipped with Continue reading

New $7 Cup of Coffee at #Starbucks

starfucks coffee
I’m like the last person in the video, it all taste the same to me. I drink Maxwell House by the pot and spend on a 30oz container which makes many cups, what many spend on a cup. Never could figure that shit out. Carried a Stanley stainless steel thermos for decades.
If you pay $7 for a cup of coffee, shut the fk up complaining about $4 a gallon gas.
