With all due respect "The Fed has been threatening to raise rates for more than half a decade."
The best thing that could happen would be for the FED to raise rates. However should they raise rates on Fed Funds, Most every thing I have read suggests that rate hikes on Fed funds may not have a major impact on long term rates for some time. That's like saying we have to buy this house now because rates are low. Well if interest rates go up the price of the house may just come down.
I tend to agree with you. I don't think the US can or should afford to be the world's police force. 18+ Trillion in debt isn't the best way to run a country, the majority of which has come since 9/11/2001. Coincidence - I am not smart enough to know. I just observe the correlation.
I am thinking Lisa would not have made a decision to ban George with out pressure from some of these "public" officials. Must be some thin skinned folks out there. Also I agree with Pat's comment, why not investigate, Pilot?
If George wants to meet with you I would love to be part of that meeting. While his cynicism may get a bit over the top he comes across to me as some one who cares about his community. We need more of that. I would love to know why his comments were pulled.
George K, George K. Where forth are you?
Chris is exactly right!
Chris, I get it. You caught Mark admitting he did some thing wrong. His "self described behavior" was 25+ years ago. Just curious as to how well you know Mark and if you are aware of recent similar behavior. So bludgeon away as judge and jury. It doesn't appear to me that Mark used the Castle Doctrine as a defense. It doesn't appear to me that Mark even tried to defend what he did. If as Mark said, he reported it to the police and there were no legal implication as a result of his actions and some thing positive was learned as a result. Again I will suggest that it is possible that all of us have acted improperly and in hind sight regretted those actions. I for one am glad to hear Mark feels that he learned an important lesson, maybe you should be glad as well. Wouldn't it be a much better world if we all learned from our mistakes.
I cheated. I was wearing my Dick Tracy decoder ring when I read your post.
Mark H. gave as an example, an apparent occurrence in his past, possibly when he was about 22 years old and about 25+ years ago. According to Mark, he had a brain fart and got out of his vehicle to confront the driver of a logging truck. In retrospect, Mark states he wishes he had not done that. My take away from this is Mark is encouraging others to learn from his mistake. I am sure none of us have ever done something rash and in hind sight not so smart. As we reflected on the incident we regretted that it happened and thought about what we could have done differently. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
I would tend to agree that it may be probable that as a rule business don't add new workers for TC events. However the added hours for hotel staff, the added shifts for hospitality workers may certainly add up. They create added income for those workers, many I would guess not living the "high life". It would be interesting if it were possible to see how many job equivalents those extra add hours create. I am guessing some of that added income finds it way back into the local economy.
