Long ago I heard a sage piece of advice, don't buy on buy out rumors. The Berkshire rumor started awhile back was something like an accounting change for the pension plan, nothing to do with setting up for a buy out. Buffett always buys at a good price, with gas/electric utes at near all time highs he probably will wait.
Hutchinson Tech is moving hard drive production to Thailand. No idea when the 480 remaining Hutchinson employees in Eau Claire will be given the pink slips. Gee, aren't these high tech jobs and tech is the future? All together now, "Scott Walker where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
Oh, my, what a cute gun? her last thought
Starting in January the pink slips maybe flying at Oshkosh Truck, Manitowoc Ship, etc, etc, etc.. Article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel today. Everybody all together, "Scott Walker where are the 250,000 jobs you promised?"
Chase's spokesman is only saying, “We do have a mortgage team in Milwaukee, so I do anticipate that they will be affected,” she said. “But I don’t know if it will be significant numbers or not, or when it will take place, just that it will be this year.” All together, on the count of three, "SCOTT WALKER, WHERE ARE THE 250,000 JOBS YOU PROMISED?"
SC Johnson Company, the guys that advertise they're a family company, announce Feb 7th there will be more job cuts than they previously announced. Not giving a specific number media is reporting it might total 400 jobs going bye-bye in Racine Wisconsin. On the count of three, all together now. WHERE THE JOBS YOUI PROMISED WALKER?
Republican Ron Kramer was caught groping two women during a fund raiser in Washington D.C. He's entered a "treatment" program and refusing to respond to media. Unnamed state GOP leaders are telling media off the record they want him to resign as his offences are pretty atrocious. In other words it's another black eye for Gov. Scott Walker, self-appointed presidential candidate. E-mails from campaign irregularities were released a few days ago. They are loaded with messages disparaging the GOP lieutenant governor and jokes about minorities lead to one Walker staffer to be fired this week. GOP attempts to end a another investigation of illegal Walker campaign funds are being turned down by the courts.
Aging infrastructure. Thank Ronald Reagan for cutting federal dollars to local governments for public projects while he forked the bucks to his thousand ship Navy, Star Wars, B-1, etc., etc. etc. As the education president he didn't open any new med, dental or nursing schools. Hence are present 10,000 doctor shortage and high medical bills.
The report from the Department of Silly Wars, previously called the Department of Defense, had it behind Iraq and Afghanistan in silliness so they went there.
It also makes sense for suicides. Let your family get a good nights sleep because they have to clean up the mess in the morning (or whenever they get around to it). Of course the family dog could clean it before they found it if a silencer is used, too.
No word from Scott Walker where he's going to come up with the 1,000 jobs lost to meet his promise of his creating 250,000 in Wisconsin. Also, Marquette University announced for the first time in almost 25 years they're letting people go, a little over a hundred, layoffs, open positions not filled and retirees not replaced.
Why do we need 11 aircraft carriers? The Brits found out large ships are easy targets for even budget French missiles in the Falklands. Could be why the Brits only remaining carrier is up for sale to scrapyards. When Obama was rattling the saber by putting a naval strike force together against Syria just before they came clean about chemical weapons there were no carriers in the force. Carriers are easy pickins' for any Assad's missiles. Sinking one of those carrier dinosaurs would blacken the eye of US Navy.
Oh, yeah, the Chinese have a carrier. Scary! Well, its an old Russian hulk slapped together as the Russian empire was falling apart and had been moored unpainted for decades in the Black Sea. Some marine engineers think the hull is to weak for sea voyages hence you may notice the Chinese take it out of port only on nice days and everyone wears a life preserver.
Star Wars! Are you still waiting for all those Chinese missiles to come flying through Reagan's Window Of Vulnerability? I suppose you have to worry about something waiting in your fox hole on Malibu for all those Viet Cong that are going to be coming ashore. A little hint, a third of all US federal debt is owned by the Chinese. Don't try to figure it out why they would through away a couple of trillion dollars of their own money by nuking it and not to think of the radiation that would fall back on themselves, thinking would only hurt your head.
Dog of a stock! I know one BBT employee, he's in a commercial mortgage outfit BBT acquired. Pure jerk named Lund, he speculated on a piece of land across the street from me and we warned him it was a illegally filled in pond so it wasn't suitable for building. He went in added rip rap, more illegal fill and the city nixed his scheme to divide it into four residential lots. I goad the city engineering department with fishing reports from Lake Lund from the flood going into the neighbors yards from his mess.
Scuttlebutt I heard at a private college in the Milwaukee suburbs that had some ties to Marquette was his grades were so low he couldn't possibly reach the 2.0 GPA required to graduate. There was no point to come back for the final year.
Racine is WE Energy territory so its losing customers. S C Johnson is now claiming letting lose 300 employees and maybe up to 400. WHERE THE JOBS YOU PROMISED, WALKER?
Same day Union Pacific, that's right, a boring, slow growing 150 year old railroad increased it's dividend 12% while the stock has quadrupled in price in five six years. Even Alliant Energy, a boring Midwest utility, increased its dividend 8%.
He does walk like he's clinching his buttocks muscles to ease a sore exit hole.
