… The U.S.P.S. cries out for Reform [#economic stupidity]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 17th,2016

.. when you read an article such as this , it really makes one want to puke ..

.. does anyone really wonder why the ” Pea Brain Service ” , as I like to call them is in so much trouble . It is very , very easy to see . First , you do not make such purchases like this one . It is economically insane . Secondly , is the decline in the amount of first – class mail . The amount of that mail has declined by almost 20% in the last 5 years . Tecnhology is forcing change , yet the U.S.P.S. is not adopting to it ..

.. sooner or later , the Service is going to have to face up to its problems . It is eventually going to have a ” Come to Jesus ” moment with Congress , the rest of the government , and the American People ..

.. we do need A Postal Service . The question is how are we going to reform it …

… ObamaCrapCare strikes Again [#health insurance co – operatives]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 13th,2016

.. yup , the power of the ObamaCrapCare Devil strikes again …

.. this time , it is about a little thing called ” health insurance cooperatives . ”

.. there were 23 of them launched around the United States . They were brought into being with about $2.5 billion in taxpayer money . One would think that , after nearly 3 years , these co – ops would have had a chance to become going concerns . They have not ..

.. [h/t — NYPost.com/Editorial]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. 8 of them are dead or dying . 13 more of them are headed in that direction . That accounts for all but 2 of them . I would expect the other 2 coops to follow suit , as well …

.. What gives ? ..

.. the dummies in the government [the ObamaCraps in the government , and the loonie lefties in Congress] have never made a payroll , made a product , or have produced a service . They do not know what it means to be in business , much less run one . Yet these dumbbells designed these damn coops ..

.. the enrollees in the co-ops , as many predicted , were far older and sicker than the folks expected . As a result , the premiums charged for the health insurance were far , far too low . Also , the restrictions imposed by OCC did not allow these coops to charges fees and premiums that were suffiecient enough to meet costs . So , what happens ?? ..

.. the cooperatives collapse .. and the ” death spiral ” begins …

… Are the Greeks Out of their Minds [#No vote]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 6th,2015

.. it appears so ..

.. Greece voted by about 61% in favour of the ” No ” position for the referendum on Sunday . So it is very likely now that Greece either willingly [or by force] will exit the Euro …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the Greeks have far more immediate problems , though . In basic , their banks are close to death , and their economy is steadily melting down by the day . Imports cannot be financed . Regular business cannot be conducted with the banks closed . People are very likely to revolt once part [or maybe all] of their savings are lost as the banking system collapses , either partially , or entirely …

.. O.K. , bright boy [Greek PM Alexis Tsipras] ? , what do you do now ? Do you really think that the ECB and the EU and the IMF agree going to negotiate with a bunch of colossal idiots …

… Surprise in the U.K. [#Tories]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,May 13th,2015

.. to be honest , I was not expecting this ..

.. I also thought that Labour would do better . Much better . Around 260 to 270 seats would have been my mark ..

.. but 229 seats ? P. U. .. boy , did Labour do lousy …

.. [h/t — pjmedia.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. but the Liberal DemoCraps did even worse . They once had 59 seats , and a seat in government . They now have only 10 seats at Westminster , and no seat in government at all …

.. Ouch ..

.. oh , you can guess what happened . Ed Milliband and Nick Clegg [the respective party leaders] , along with Nile Farage [the UKIP leader] all quit . It is the British tradition to take responsibility …

.. now comes redistricting , and both Labour and the LDP really get screwed …

… Oh Boy … Go , Rudy , Go !! [#Guiliani interview]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,December 24th,2014

.. man , oh man is Rudy Guiliani a force of nature …

.. even after more than 15 years out of office , he can really bring it in an interview …

.. get a earful of Rudy the other Saturday night on ” Justice with Judge Jeanine . ” He was in rare form …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. He really handed it to POTUS , AG Holder , and that so – called Reverend [yea , it’s Sharpton] … they all have it coming …
