In August, the Association for Manufacturing Technology reports that
U.S. manufacturing technology orders were up by 108% YTD in 2011 vs 2010.
So, good news for jobs in that sector and for the folks whose jobs were
saved by technology upgrades (just not good news for the folks whose jobs
were eliminated by technology upgrades).
15SEP2011. The Pittsburgh Business Times reported that the aluminum
maker Alcoa is investing $300 million in a plant in Iowa. This will raise
the total number of jobs at that plant from 2,000 to 2,300.
21SEP2011. From WOHIOTV.com, we learned that Honda Transmission Mfg. of
America, Inc. is going to increase its capacity for casting of aluminum
transmission cases by adding a 75,000 sq.ft. expansion to its Ohio
transmission plant. That is no doubt responsible for some of the demand that
caused Alcoa to upgrade.
26SEP2011. The trade magazine Plastics News reports that Faurecia S.A.
recently announced it plans to expand its Auburn Hills, MI headquarters by
for a 20,000 sq.ft. and add 800 new employees.
Sadly, repeated trips to the grocery store have not yet produced a
single milk carton with Obama's picture on it. But as Edison said about the
light bulb, each failure is one step closer to success!
You may have noticed, in the various good news mentions since this feature
appeared, jobs were created when businesses had money to invest in an
intelligent way to make products that people want to buy. When the federal
government diverts money to "stimulate" the economy (in government speak, words
have their opposite meaning so "anesthetize" the economy), that money is stolen
from people who could have been using it to create jobs.
People who don't understand this concept need to try handing a clerk the same
$10 bill ten times to make a $100 purchase. While the mudstream media insists
this works quite well, I have yet to see that in reality.
When the federal government spends more than is necessary to fulfill its
lawful mandate (which is probably 93% of the time), you get a net loss of jobs. How many
more jobs must vaporize before people stop voting Demopublican? As the next
federal pseudo-election rolls around, please point these things out to people
who seek to evangelize you into joining them in their self-defeating support of
the psychopaths who daily destroy job creation opportunities.
You can see who the psychopaths are by looking at the ratings provided by the
National Taxpayers Union,
www.ntu.org. The few with a spending grade of A probably are not criminals.
The rest probably are. Those with D or F have utter disregard for other human
beings. The NTU is a wonderful resource, check it out today.

3. Brainpower tip
The following mind-boggling attempt at a crime spree in Washington, DC appeared
to be the robber's first (and last), due to his lack of a previous record of
violence, and his terminally stupid choices:
1. His target was H&J Leather &
Firearms, a gun shop specializing in handguns.
2. The shop was full of firearms customers.
3. To enter the shop, the robber had to step around a marked police patrol
car parked at the front door.
4. A uniformed officer was standing at the counter, having coffee before
work. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up, and
fired a few wild shots from a target pistol. The officer and a clerk promptly
returned fire, the police officer with a 9mm GLOCK 17, the clerk with a 50
DESERT EAGLE, assisted by several customers who also drew their guns, several of
whom also drew and fired.
The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene
investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The subsequent
autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds. Ballistics identified rounds from 7
different weapons. No one else was hurt in the exchange of fire.
The above is from a joke list. It's not true, but it is based on an actual
case. What really happened was, as is often the case when armed citizens are
present, the criminal surrendered without a shot being fired. The only "missile"
was the one that filled his pants upon hearing all of the pistols, shotguns, and
rifles being chambered.
What's the lesson, here?
Often, the use of common sense is demonized by the mudstream media and by
You will find this, amazingly enough, around ANY story that involves
law-abiding citizens using tools of self-defense to protect themselves or to aid
our police officers.
When you hear a story via the mudstream media, expect that its details are
wrong. If the story is passed along to you by the mudstream media or by the same
kind of folks who believed Obama's campaign lies (meaning they didn't bother to
check his actual record, easy enough to do), there is always an agenda.
By taking this approach to "information," you avoid being duped by dopes.
4. Finance tip
In the past few fake
"elections" for President, only one candidate has proposed following the law.
Every other candidate has talked about ways to break the law and separate you
from your money (and your freedoms, such as they are).
The state-run mudstream
media, of course, make the one sane candidate out to be a nut and they pretend
the Goldman Sachs employees put on the ballot are actual choices.
Last month, my next door neighbor turned 97. A guy from her village is 101, and
she's wondering if he's into younger women. Go figure. She's got a great sense
of humor and is still quite active.
Contrast this to a couple of sobering
The average American male over 25 cannot do a single pushup, pullup, or
By age 65, an American typically cannot lift a 10-lb vacuum cleaner.
Why do some people become feeble so early and some stay vigorous? Can you
think of some reasons why some people live long, healthy lives?
Here are some possible reasons that aren't true:
It's sheer luck.
They've got better medical care.
Frequent alcohol consumption preserves their cells.
They eat mostly processed foods.
They don't wear out their bodies with exercise.
By carrying around lots of extra body fat, they avoid letting their
cells go hungry.
They tap the power of The Dark Side by holding grudges and being
By demeaning other people, they sap life energy for their own use.
Because they rush to work, drive dangerously to shorten the commute,
and arrive at the office harried and drained, they are more likely to
keep their jobs and thus have less stress.
By sleeping a bit less than they actually need, they prevent their
bodies from rehearsing death and therefore live longer.
The first two items on that list are simply unrelated to health. But
the other items have a yin to the yang. Most of them seem downright
silly when put that way, but they are normal behaviors for most people.
Take a few minutes to make your own list of reasons you might live a
longer, stronger, healthier life. What are you doing to apply that list?
www.supplecity.com, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:
The best workouts are short and intense.
A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction
than the typical American diet.
A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds. That's exactly how long
each year that members of CONgress have a conscience.
8. Thought for the Day
You can't take a $10 bill and hand it to the clerk 10 times to pay a $100 tab.
Life just does not work that way. You have to make choices, and by choosing one
thing you eliminate another from possibility.
When politicians seem to be
saying otherwise, don't vote for them (notice how the Demopublicans ALWAYS say
