A dark but not windy GOOD MORNING!!! to you all! Dark Hershey walk this morning because so few stars out. Still, a great walk because there was no wind.
Today’s bit o trivia: Benjamin Guggenheim. Well, it was today that the Titanic ran into an iceberg and sank into the North Atlantic. Ben, well, he was one of many celebrities to die in this little boat ride. Cool thing about him is he died, well, kinda cool! See once he was convinced to get up and that there was a problem he took his entire group of servants, drivers, maids, and his mistress to the upper deck. Realizing the ship was sinking he loaded his mistress and maid into a boat along with several other women and children. Then, he assured his maid there was nothing to worry about. The boat lowered and he along with his porter and chauffer returned to their rooms, put on their evening suits and he put a rose in the lapel. Then, they went to the first class smoking cabin to await death in as dignified a manner as they could. I guess if you got nothing else to do, smoke ’em if you got ’em.
Think About it Thursday Ed-vise today
I read an article this morning in the Economist. One of those rags I read where you think the writers and contributors have much more on the ball than a tabloid writer. Sometimes they don’t.
The article of the day talks about the danger of business cozying up to politics. Like what you see now with all these different businesses now writing letters saying how they disagree with Georgia’s voting restrictions…as if the companies will do anything other than write a letter. I mean, they didn’t say anything during Jim Crow days so big deal now! But I digress.
The writer of the article made it seem like this is something new or counter to the ‘Merican way of life. Which I had to laugh at. Time to wake up!
Business and politics have been hand in hand, arm in arm, part and parcel, or whatever else you can come up FOR EV ER!!!! WAKE UP!!!
Businessmen and women have been getting elected FOR EV ER!!! They have been appointed into regulatory agencies since regulatory agencies have been around. I mean THINK ABOUT IT! How do you think aspartame (known cancer causing agent) was allowed into Diet Coke? Because Don “the Devil is waiting for you” Rumsfeld was brought up from his executive seat at Coke to a new seat on the FDA! He became the deciding vote! Who do you think lobbies congress to keep us in wars that last forever? Business Corporations!
Kaiser Health came out of Kaiser Steel which was able to get a corner on steel for ships during WW2. And old man Kaiser used his money to rent politicians! Business; politics; They are always together. I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember zombies don’t eat clowns because they taste funny! BWAHAHAHAHAHA
