Here are some photos from the Chicago Air and Water Show. It’s totally jammed along the lakefront. I think people are going anywhere for free entertainment.
Love this post on so many levels. You have to read it.
Maybe some supply side economics will help the lobster industry.
This is really worth reading and is a great thought for the day.
As a small business owner all I can say is that I think the current sentiment in the small business community is that we didn’t sign up for this shit. Y’all can vote for whatever the hell you want but we are not going to be a part of it.
I have seen more owners get out of the business or retire in the past couple of years than ever before and with the ACA on the horizon the jobs these businesses produced will not be replaced. The economics no longer work. This is why unemployment is always so high in socialist countries. What you have to go through to have employees is just brutal.
I haven’t made more than $50k from my business but one or two years of the past 15. But now that it is time to cash out after providing literally hundreds of jobs I get the stink eye and get castigated for being a member of the 1%. Even though I can remember sitting on the edge of the bed and holding my head in my hands wondering what I had done risking everything I had to create a business and wondering how it would all work out when I had just finished working several days in a row with no sleep… I am the enemy. Even though I didn’t take a paycheck for the first year of the business and later skipped other paychecks to meet payroll or to pay taxes I am somehow at fault for the fact that all of these people sitting on their asses or working their cushy government jobs with the large pensions funded by armies of tax collectors and regulators may have to go without.

Comedians, in cars, getting coffee.
Wilshire 5000 near all time high.
The Senate is all important this time around too. If the Republicans beat Obama, and take the Senate, Obamacare gets overturned and so does Dodd-Frank. Might see Sarbox amended by a lot too.
The Boston Herald says voter ID isn’t racist. I am for voter ID only because I want to stop fraud in elections. Remember, I am in Chicago. Fraud was perfected here. When I was a judge, they said even if the signatures didn’t match they could still vote. “Hey, you dunno if dey had a stroke or anyt’ing a week befor or sumpin.” I notice, only Democrats are playing the race card. It’s because they want illegal aliens to vote.
Create your own map. Here is my current one.
