Bringing more manufacturing back to this country would help, but the current high value of the dollar is interfering. Economists are saying that foreign made goods may drop in price by over 10% in the next few months, cutting demand for U.S. made consumer goods. This means more demand for container loads from China,yes. but less demand for raw material transportation.
But CSX is still doing something wrong! They need to cut the share buyback and increase the bond buyback. This company is carrying too much fixed cost debt.
Have you look at how the Buck is doing against other currencies? It is up 11%! CSX is down 8% YTD, we are still ahead! Guess who the putz is?
A key part of the service is that deliveries for many industries should arrive in the off hours. The loading dock crew can not stop working because you are moving cars in and out. One of the industries that I saw as a brakeman was an American can plant. They needed the can stock at the start of the shift and sometimes they would be unloading a car and you had to switch out a car that was further down the track, meaning you had to to shuffle the cars around. There were times that the switch crew had to wait until the loading dock crew went to lunch before we could move the cars around.
Unless you repent from any and all sins you are condemned. You are also condemned unless God chooses you to go o heaven.
Consumers should have their income tax refunds checks soon and will start buying hard goods, like washers and driers and cars. This should jack up the carloads of scrap iron, iron ore, metal and autos.
Never did. Apostle Paul, who was a Pharisee before that, made it very clear to the Corinthian church that not only Homosexuals but also cross dressers would not enter Heaven. It seems to me that the story of Sodom and Gomorrah would be enough to stop everyone from sexual perversion.
Romans 1: 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
There is currently so much traffic between Cuba and countries like Venezuala, Brazil and Mexico that the U.S. will probably increase slowly after a short spurt. Cuba is so poor that there will not be a great market for U.S. goods.
I stopped by one of my favorite train watching spots on Friday. They are having problems working out the bugs of the new scheduling system. Two unit coal trains, which were not to be affected, were at least 8 hours late. Two general frieghts, which are to work to the new schedule were waiting for crews. Give it a couple of weeks.
