Journal of an Urban Ronin

"... Clang!!!" the lock ran like a steel chime when it dropped to the floor, smoke drifting off the cherry red edges of the disabled seal. The LiveJournal technat goon looked summerly pleased with himself.

"There ya go... you should be able to access everything again. Next time, make sure to remeber your password, guv." He said smuggly as he tuned and waddled his way down the hallway back toward his mole-hole, dragging his gas tanks with him. I fought the urge to bowl the remennts of the jammed lock of the shiny dirty target of his bald crest, butn thought better of it... after all, no place to hide the body anyway and not a "shanghai trader" in the port till a month thursday.

A bullet? Nah... too easy. I patted the butt of my faithful Gordenbrot's Vesper 50x150 Revolving Double Action and closed the door behind me.

On short... I haven't been able to get into my LJ page for quite a while, because of a bunged passcode. Oh... Scribefire could get in, but I couldn't.

Anyway, just thought I'd stop by the old office and sniff about a bit, see what old friends are up to and what-not. (I've lost touch with quite a few of you and thought it best to reconnect.)

Also, just to let you all know, that although I'll crosspost over here, that my main jounal is now going to be over at http://21cjetboy.wordpress.com/. If you interested in reconnecting, feel free to flash me an aemail and I'll be happy to add you.

Laters

Turn an eye to the dorr with the gapping bite out of the side and sighs.

"Now, how the hells am I supposed to lock the damn thing!"

Well, like everyone else in the country I've been watching the utter bullshite about the various bailouts and such going on.

In a nutshell we're all in trouble because corporate "virtual numbers" don't add up.

Wait... Yes... I said "virtual" as in "not real."

The majority of the companies and businesses in "trouble" today are in trouble not because their losing money. They're not... they're showing profits and I defy you to show me any of these books that show that any of these companies are really operating in the red... in short once we subtract the costs of operation from the gross income... that they have made less than one cent.

You can't because it's not true.

But then how come they're saying we're in trouble?

It's because they consider that under a specific margin of growth is bad... a "Loss". For example... GM declares that it will make 100 million this year. At the end of this year, they only (snicker) make 90 million. Ok... in the real world, that means that they made a profit of 90 million... which is a good deal of money.

But... guess what? GM sees it as a loss of 10 Million.

0.o

No... you read it right. They consider it a loss because they  (here's that word again) only made 90 million.

That's right, all these businesses that are reducing our pay and benefits, terminating our jobs and outsourcing for pennies on the dollars, and downsizing operations are doing so, so that they can make up that 10 million dollars.

If you're not seeing the rudimentary flaw in this reasoning, then you work in Upper echelon GM... or you happen to be one of uour current crop of Congressmen or Representatives that are letting them do this.

I think that every member of the House and Senate should immediately take a remedial math course, and be handed a dictionary.

Who's with me?

I have plans to use this space for something more creative that real life in the very near future, but there’s something I just need to vent:

Michael Richards

Ok, for the record and regardless of what he actually said:

If you weren’t sitting in that specific audience…

… at that specific comedy club…

… at that specific time…

… and weren’t specifically and personally witness to and offended by his anger-induced rant…

THEN HE DOSEN’T OWE YOU A GODDAMN APPOLIGY!

What a PC-Whipped people we’ve become. Thank you, talk amongst yourselves.

(Oh and Al Sharpton can kiss my ass too)
