Wally world, lil gates, and other assorted things

Wall Mart, lil gates, and other assorted things... Yes, so my satirical comments have not been flung on the paper as often as I would like. I have been a bit busy with this thing called life. However something has brought me back to the soap box for comments upon the life in the day of these Untied States. Now for most of you who read my things, you know I currently reside in NYC, the belly of the beast, the concrete jungle, the big apple, or rotten apple depending upon who you are talking to. Funny thing, New York is the heartbeat of America. I am a stock watcher. I watch stocks go up and down, plummet and then rise again only to do the merry-go-round of the world flip off this place called Wall Street, only to name one. So many truly do not realize, until the prices go up, that the stock market does affect them. So people just go on with their merry little lives until they see that their milk, gas, sugar, coffee, or any other assorted daily life needed thing are on the rise. However the stock market is much like a game of chess, it is how the players are playing that determines the prices of little things, you know, like Oil. Oil seems to be an important commodity of today’s talking. A commodity that we have become so dependent upon, that even if it were possible to try to do an organized walkout on the Gas Companies that keep raising the prices at the pump to the point that you are going to have to take out a loan to fill your car soon. If there were an organized one day World Wide walkout on the use of the Oil companies to say enough is enough, this would create a ripple effect. Yet I know in my utopian world that will never happen. Too many are dependent upon this Crude. Even here in New York, there are more cars on the road than there are in the subways. By the way, just so you know, the Subway is my friend. So they raised the prices of the subway. People are complaining. Reality check people, it’s a quarter more, take a step back and remember the price of Oil. I am not going to complain. Our demand as Nations has created it so the Oil Company is in charge of you, not you in charge of them. People tend to forget they have control over what happens to this nation. We are responsible simply by supporting people we know are corrupt because it might save us a few dollars. Hence why this blog today was prompted: Wally World… My Ode to Wally World Oh my wally world what would I do without you I can buy tapes, make up and tissue. All at bargain prices while in the back you cut your employees’ vices. Vices, I meant morals, to fill your pockets of gold while the products, most of them that are sold from the companies that you allowed the American society to become dead. Selling the jobs overseas instead, yet we will come we will come by the droves. To make sure that our pantries are stored. With prices so low and bargains galore. Wow, look It’s a ghost town. However I am glad to see that the wally world store is still standing. After taking over the businesses that made this land because now I don’t have a choice of where to go. Perhaps a bargain is not a bargain anymore. Oh my ode to wally world. Yes folks, I do not shop at wally world, kmart or Target. I am fortunate to live in NYC, so I don’t have to. However just so you know, I have been Wally world free for over 4 years now and have lived in NYC for only a year. I came across some interesting news upon the yahoo world. I will get to that too, this time around. I made a conscious choice to avoid them like the plague after living with Wally world employees. I saw how they treated their employees. I have some issues with the treatment they give them. I have issues with the country stealing jobs from the men who have built this world. Families having to choose between rent and food should not be an issue in what is supposed to be the richest country of the world, yet we have people who are perfectly capable of working, that cannot work, because why? Oh it’s no big deal, their jobs were just shipped overseas to a company that can employ their personnel for less than what a person should work for. Or they were replaced by computers, which by the way, have you actually tried to call your computer technicians lately? Ever noticed that most of the accents are not even that of a New Yorker? Ok you Computer hackers reading this, you know exactly what I am talking about, have your private chuckle, but be warned I have a description of good ole gates coming up. I suggest you do not have any liquid near the computer. You have been warned. Now back to the jobs, so the jobs are shipped overseas and the Government is wondering why Unemployment is up and people have stopped looking for work. I don’t know could it be that they would rather not work under someone who is 21 years old, running a McDonald’s and they have a degree in, I don’t know, let’s say Automotive Design. However McDonald’s is the only job he may be able to get. Why, because his Automotive job is overseas. On the upside, he will be making more at McDonald’s than his current replacement overseas. Now Wally world is showing their true colors, I have posted a few links below for you to see. http://www.wreg.com/global/story.asp?s=8165852 http://www.sltrib.com/business/ci_8915459?source=rss http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/7342328.stm Now moving on to the Microsoft and Yahoo wars. A nice hostile takeover is planned by Microsoft if Yahoo will not agree. I read this in the Wall Street Journal. I had an immediate flash of bill gates in a diaper, stamping his feet and screaming “I want it now!” as I read on that Yahoo said “No.” I could only imagine when Yahoo said “No, little boy, you can’t have it,” he then proceeded to jump up and down like a spoiled child and continued to scream “I want it now, I want it now, I want it now.” When Yahoo said no again, I am sure the next step ‘lil gates will do is holding his breath and not breathing till he gets his way. What is the matter, ‘lil gates? Someone pee in your cheerios from Yahoo, that you have to not only try to take them over but also do it in a nature that they will have no choice in the matter? I think it may be that ‘lil gates is not the richest man in the world, even after his dirty underhanded dealings, that now he needs to secure that in the back of his mind that no one beats ‘lil gates. Funny how the mighty are all falling, the company that is scaring Wally world, is not that well known. With ‘lil gates, it is only a matter of time, as the chess board of the stock market continues to play. This does not even include the Government’s hand in making sure that we truly do become the Untied States. I will get back to Alaska soon enough and the worlds of things I would like to avoid in the next blog, till then, keep the faith. If you like my blog, please pass it on to your friends, if you don’t, let me know. After all, we do still have a first amendment right and I fully believe in it. Ainge

Hostile takeovers happen all the time in the big business world, big companies eat up little companies, so an and so forth. Why would a university graduate not want to work for macdonalds, try it is not enough money to feed his family at minimum wage especially in a city like new york where the rents alone are sky high. factor in at least 4 years of hard work and sacrificing at school to work along side a kid that barely graduated from high school and is making the same amount as you are. The add the big loan that you have to pay back and you can't unless you get a decent paying job. The add the killing of your dreams that you had to make a good life for yourself and your family in the great ole usa, the land of opportunity and look what you get flipping burgers at macdonalds. What a lovely trade off.
