Nationalist Plus Socialist Equals Nazi

Nationalist Plus Socialist Equals Nazi — Children, remember: Nationalist is only Nazi when you add Socialist.

Also remember, the old media tell lies.

Hey did you know that Abraham Lincoln supported high tariffs? He signed bills that led to placing our tariffs at 38 percent and 48 percent. This tariff scheduled remained in effect until 1913 during which time America became the greatest economic power in history.

(And we didn’t have an income tax.)

Boeing MH-139 To Be Built In Delco, Philly

Boeing MH-139 To Be Built In Delco, Philly — Boeing has won a $2.4 billion contract to replace UH-1 N Huey helicopters that were icons in the Vietnam War and which are now tasked to guard U.S. nuclear missile bases.

The new MH-139 is derived from the Italian AW139, a commercial helicopter developed by AgustaWestland, which is now a subsidiary of Italy’s Leonard S.p.A.

It’s a big boon for the Philadelphia area.

The choppers will be assembled at Leonard’s plant in Northeast Philadelphia with the military stuff added at Boeing’s Ridley Park facility.

Prodigy And Sears’ Ironic Bankruptcy

Prodigy And Sears Ironic Bankruptcy
It’s the Willis Tower now.

Prodigy And Sears’ Ironic Bankruptcy — Sears, once the world’s largest retailer with the world’s tallest building, filed for bankruptcy today, Oct. 15, and is about to disappear.

Some are crediting Amazon and it’s use of mail order and the internet. The irony is that Sears became the Goliath of its day through mail order and catalogs, and that Sears through it’s involvement with the the online service Prodigy was an pioneer in the internet and e-commerce.

New Balance American Made And Loving It

New Balance American Made And Loving It
Guess the shoes we choose to use.

New Balance American Made And Loving It — If you seek footwear and a conscience clean of exploiting underpaid, underage, mistreated workers, we’d like to point out that New Balance has a strong US manufacturing presence and  that we have found their comfort and quality to be far superior to Nike.

Yes, Nike is an oppressor. No, we aren’t cherry picking. You really should be ashamed if you buy their products.

We take warmth in knowing, though, that Nike will always remember murderer Gary Gilmore’s last words as it sports towards its hipster-fueled  corporate demise.

June 5 Marks CEO Retirements

June 5 Marks CEO Retirements — June 5 has certainly been interesting in the world of business. Two politically active anti-Trump billionaire CEOs picked today to announce their retirements. David Koch is stepping down from Koch Industries and the open-border activist group Americans for Prosperity Foundation, and totally woke Howard Schultz is quitting Starbucks.

It’s a coincidence worth nothing.

Home Contracting Costs Shaved With Springfield Man’s MyBidPortal

Home Contracting Costs Shaved With Springfield Man’s MyBidPortal

Home Contracting Costs Shaved
Brian Murphy at a customer’s.

A Springfield  man’s plan is already shaving thousands from plumbing, heating and air conditioning  costs for homeowners throughout Southeast Pennsylvania and it’s just a few months old.

Brian Murphy, a master plumber, began MyBidPortal.com earlier this year. The concept is simple. A homeowner fills an online form about the kind of work desired. A MyBidPortal  representative consults with the homeowner by phone, online or via an at home visit. A system is selected  and the rep then requests bids from local rated installation professionals.

A professional seeking work sees the request on MyBidPortal and submits a bid. Once MyBidPortal gets multiple competing bids the homeowner is contacted. The homeowner compares the pricing with the latest MyBidPortal score and picks a pro.

The bidders are blind to each others offers.

Murphy says these pros are screened either by himself or one of his 11 agents before being allowed to submit bids on MyBidPortal, and their work is reviewed quarterly. The screening and reviews include interviews with their previous customers, ensuring that licenses and insurance are up to date, and observing them at job sites.

Customers are not charged for work requests. MyBidPortal takes a small percent of the fee from the contractor when the bid is accepted.

Murphy says savings for customers are often $4,000-plus for major jobs. Advantages to the contractor include far less idle time and far less expensive leads and sales commissions.

Among the ways Murphy has been promoting his business is with how-to videos YouTube which can be found here.

Murphy has been doing plumbing and HVAC work for more than three decades. With the growing success of MyBidPortal in his line, he says he is working with his wife, Holly, to expand the concept to retail.

Steel Mill Reopens, God Bless President Trump

Steel Mill Reopens, God Bless President Trump
MAGA is happening.

Steel Mill Reopens, God Bless President Trump — This is for all the Trump haters. It’s certainly not something you will likely hear via your local media.

The first few paragraphs of an April 24 2016 story from Crain’s Cleveland:

If there’s a city that encompasses the repercussions of the steel downturn, it’s Lorain.

The city is home to two large steel plants, one of which is currently shut down. The other is only running one of its three mills, according to the union. Both have left hundreds without jobs and will contribute to a likely budget shortfall for the city.

The issues plaguing the plants aren’t unique. The steel industry has been facing oversupply globally; domestically, producers have also been struggling with a strong dollar and low oil prices driving down demand for drilling-related products.

“It’s going to be a rough couple years,” said Brian Sealy, staff representative for the United Steelworkers.

Sealy, who worked in the Lorain plants for about 20 years before joining the USW staff, said he hasn’t seen a downturn like this since at least 2009, when the entire economy took a dive. Even then, both mills “limped along” instead of shutting down, he said.

Canton-based Republic Steel shut its Lorain plant at the end of March and is just keeping security and a few people on site to protect its assets.

Now the first few graphs from a story carried by WKYC.com Thursday. (March 8, 2018)

In response to President Trump signing proclamations Thursday imposing tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, Republic Steel has announced plans to restart its Lorain facility.

The move would bring back more than 1,000 jobs to the Lorain plant, which will be positioned to restart its idled electric arc furnace, casters, and rolling mills on short notice.

 

Republic currently has open capacity at its Canton melt shop. Restarting the Lorain facility would provide more than a million tons of new production capacity. The company anticipates that it would take a few months to hire and train employees and restart its idled equipment.

God bless President Trump. MAGA.

Carol Hatton-Holmes Taking Flight Disc Profile

By Kate Rainey

Josephs People Central Delco (JPCD) welcomes Carol Hatton-Holmes, CSP, who will present a new assessment tool, Taking Flight Disc Profile. The program will be held from 7-8:30 p.m., March 6, at Media Presbyterian Churchs Hassler Chapel, 30 E. Baltimore Ave., Media, PA 19063. The chapel can be accessed from the Baltimore Avenue side, to the left of the main door, or around back on East Franklin Street, enter the back door and go up the stairs. All are welcome, without regard to religious affiliation.

Ms. Hatton-Holmes is a Special Project Staffing Consultant for Monarch Staffing. She has owned a business and worked for IBM, SunGard, GTE and Sprint. Carol speaks on generational topics and the Taking Flight DISC program.

The DOPE Bird Personality Test, which is an acronym for Dove, Owl, Peacock, Eagle, will assist individuals in creating more effective work relationships and understanding how to communicate among different personality styles. This 4-Bird personality test promotes self-assessment, intensifies self improvement, complements career and personal development and can be used to improve how we interact with others.

 Employees who are self-aware, are more likely to maximize their talents, recognize and manage their challenges and produce better results. Every employee is a co-creator of workplace culture. When people understand their own style and show respect for individual differences, they impact the culture in a positive way. By applying the wisdom of the styles, each person improves the culture, one interaction at a time. Theres an expression in neuroscience, what wires together fires together. This training wires DISC to existing knowledge and thus it fires at just the right time.

JPCD is a joint program of Media Presbyterian Church and St. Laurence Church in Upper Darby. The group has an active, free forum on LinkedIn, named Josephs People of Central Delaware County-Free Job Search Groupin the LinkedIn directory. To join, send a request and an email will be generated confirming membership.

Scottevest Mocks Customers Or Idiocracy In Action

Scottevest Mocks Customers Or Idiocracy In Action — ScotteVest advertises heavily on Fox News and seems like a good idea. It’s a lot more practical, after all, to carry a smart phone in a vest pocket than one’s pants or purse, and this is equally true of things like wallets and keys.

So it was getting a lot of sales. It was by his own admission making founder and CEO Scott Jordan rich.

Then on Sunday (Jan. 14) he put this on Facebook:

“I love meeting new people that recognize me and my company from all of our television commercials. I am on the ski lift and the following exchange just happened and happens often. I ask “what network they saw me?” Invariable people say FOXNews. I laugh to myself, and tell that that we primarily advertise on Fox because we find their viewership to be extremely gullible and much easier to sell than other networks. The look on their face at that time is priceless. I am not kidding you. I get to tell them they are f*cking idiots while getting rich off them.” 

Whoa.

Beam me up Scotte. Real slick move there.

The rest of the corporation quickly went into damage control mode saying “In 2017, Mr. Jordan stepped down from the management of SCOTTeVEST and he is not involved in our daily operations. We are extremely sorry for his unacceptable comments. Mr. Jordan’s post was impulsive and inappropriate for too many reasons to list, and rightfully offended so many people.”

Just the same when the founder thinks only idiots would buy his product it does make one go hmmm.

Conservatives are far more likely to choose substance over style and, as noted, pocketed vests are practical so it makes sense for a vest maker to target conservatives. On the other hand it is equally true that ScotteVests are ugly as all. There is no reason one can’t have looks and practicality. Pick up a old suit vest at a thrift store. Make your own fashion statement. Go for the Mississippi gambler look. Yancy Derringer had taste. Eventually, someone in the clothing industry will get it right.

ScotteVest doesn’t deserve your business and Scott Jordan doesn’t deserve to be rich.
