I recognize that. More like a few months, isn't it?

And, to be fair, you used that line in an illustrative manner.

I do express my opinions forcefully, and I do enjoy toying with those I've come to know. Mea culpa.

Flake has great taste in music, so I'll forgive him the rest. But he's kind of futuristic for someone who seems to believe our economy is on the verge of collapse. The two visions don't fit. But he don't like to talk about it.

I'm not here much, so bear with me. No offense intended. Just words.

<quoted text> So much for your knowledge of economics. Henry Ford raised the wages so his workers could buy his cars? Hahaha! Henry Ford gave his cars away so the workers would give him back their wages plus interest!!! Do you really think he did it out of the goodness of his heart? Costco is using the oldest trick in the book. Appearing to be on the side of people to lure them into their stores.
In a market-based economy, minimum wages are set by Adam Smith's unseen hand: competition in the labor market. If Costco wants to drive up their labor costs to attract customers and/or better quality labor, so be it. But if Costco finds itself high-and-dry for making stupid moves, again, so be it.

But for Craig Jelinek to come out supporting the Jerk-In-Chief's political ploy, that is wrong. If he ficks up his company, fine, but if he drags every business in America into the same hole he is digging for Costco, that is wrong. Question: what does Craig Jelinek stand to gain from sucking on the Boy Messiah's doorknob?

Look for a smelly fish on this one.

You're hopeless. The Model T begat the Model A, the Model B, the Model 48, etc.

Point is, Ford, followed by the creation of auto unions of the 1930's, establised good wages, which made workers better consumers. In steel, rubber, coal, etc. After the War, it all came together, as workers had the highest relative wages of the postwar era. The reason our economy failed is that average wages went down, after inflation.

All due to people like Reagan, who began the wealth transfer to the already wealthy. When the biggest retailer in America has it's employees on Medicaid and Foodstamps because they don't make enough in salary is why the economy collapsed, something is very wrong.

And you don't get it. No surprise there.

"There's nothing surer,
the rich get rich and the poor get poorer,
in the meantime, in between time, ain't we got fun!"

True then, true now.

Well then who in the hell is paying for those Ford commercials I see on TV every night?

To make your embarrassment even worse, the guy wrote "The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927."

Note: "...*between* 1908 and 1927."

You open your defecated trap with "And EVERYBODY knows that the were no Fords built *after* 1927"

Note: "...built after 1927".

Erin Burnett, the cute little CNN gal who had Rand Paul scheduled for tonight has had to settle for talking to an Atlanta Aquarium guy about wild cats in California. Purrfect!

Bush knew exactly what the CIA and the UN knew. He knew exactly what the Democrats knew before they became weasels.

The Democrats lied to you about being lied to.

There was no illegal surveillance of the public.

DUH. Nobody does anything out of the goodness of their heart. If you noticed, the auto loan industry is alive and well. Ford again set the pace, creating a new banking opportunity.

Isn't the purpose of Costco's business to lure them into their stores??

Do you believe in capitalism or not?? You don't make sense.

I'm not the revealing one, Doody. You have embarrassed yourself beyond the point of no return.

Patch it up with small talk and banter. Then move on.

That's the best you can do, Mr. Embarrassment 2013.
