One Paratroopers Opinion

My daughter has a Blog and told me I should get one. In fact, she said I already had one. Well, I don't like the name Blog so I changed it to Blob which rhymes with slob and as I am somewhat of a slob that sounded just right!

Someone asked, through the comments page, for my Testimony so HERE it is!

January 18, 2011

Kind of unreal. One of the people shot in Arizona last week went to a political rally one week later, takes a picture of a Tea Party politician and says to him "You're dead". Read about it Here. Liberals bitch and moan about the horrible, inciting to violence language of the conservatives. They can give no proof, at all, that conservatives actually said it, then they do it themselves. What liars and hypocrites. And we wonder why the political parties are so far apart.

On a different note. It is not surprising that business are in a bad way. Case in point. Since 1999 I have had an e-mail address with a place called I originally had a dial up account with them. I went to a satellite dish a few years ago to get some speed going for my Internet connection. Trouble was I wanted to keep my Icehouse e-mail because everyone I knew had that address for me. For this privilege I had to pay $24.00 a year. This was outrageous but I wanted it so I paid it.

As you probably know, e-mail address must be really cheap to provide because every one gives them away for free. Microsoft Live & Hot Mail. Google, Yahoo, just about everybody gives them away free. When I first got a domain name they gave me 535 possible e-mail addresses with it ... all free. Now they have upped it to unlimited. All as part of the web hosting package.

So you can imagine my surprise when they said they didn't want my money this year and were cutting me off. This was basically getting $24.00 for doing nothing. Why did they do that? That is basically throwing money away. Do you really think they don't have room on their server for one lousy e-mail address? Yeah, yeah I know. I just don't "Understand"!

Stuff like this has been going on for a while I guess. My father worked in management for a large company that made fertilizers. At one of the companies manufacturing plants they made a special fertilizer for potatoes. It took special equipment to make that type of fertilizer and on one else in the USA made it. They had made it for many years so all the equipment was paid for and written of on their taxes. The number of customers had dwindled over the years to just one but that one bought $40,000.00 worth of this special fertilizer every year without fail.

The special equipment was used just once a year to fill this one order. The rest of the year the equipment set under a tarp in the back yard of the plant. The basic raw material used to make this one special type of fertilizer was the same stuff that they used to make a lot of other types of fertilizers so they didn't have to buy anything special. They just set up the machine, made the fertilizer and collected forty grand.

Every year the new collage educated whiz kids in the company would try to get rid of this equipment because it took up space and there was only one customer. Every year my father would have to explain to these idiots that it took one man one day to make 40K for the company that was almost all pure profit.

These kid were all fresh out of collage and you would think they would have known better. What in the world are the collage business courses teaching them?

My father was always very big on making his company money. He felt that it was the job of an employee to make money for his company or boss. If you do not make a profit for your employer, what good are you? I think he had it right. Maybe the "Me" generation needs to learn that.

OK, How do I say this without being offensive. I am really interested in what you say but I don't give a flying passage of gas in a hot place about what you think!

WOW, what does that mean? Simply this. I am interested in what you say about the things I say and you can tell the truth to me because you can't offend me. That is because I don't care about what you think of me! You can FLAME me, Rant and Rave, say you love me or say you hate me, it's all the same to me!

I am interested in how you come to whatever opinion you have, why you say what you say. Lately, I keep hearing and reading about people who say they HATE, absolutely HATE Palin, Beck, O'Reilly, Fox, ETC. They are just liar, liar pants on fire. However, they never seem to be able to give proof or at least some kind of reason for what they say. I gave you reasons why I feel as I do so if you disagree with me can you give me some reason why?

So there you go. Tell me what you think. I promise to read what you say but I will not write back because I don't care what you think. I only care about what you say!

One last thing. This is for comments on my Blobs only. No motorcycle questions because I'm not writing back from this E-Mail address. OK?

If you have motorcycle questions click the motorcycle and follow my rules.

The Next One Is Coming Soon!
