Top 10 Dubya Moments

1/20/2009 Bump:

Since there are only a couple hours left in George W. Bush’s Presidency – figured now would be a good time to bump a post from this past summer…

8/22/2008:

Since there were a few Barack Obama posts recently, one Hoboken411 reader thought it’d be fun to poke fun at George W. Bush on the Republican side:

Top 10 George W. Bush Moments

I’ll certainly be much happier when both the 2008 Presidential Election as well as the 2009 Hoboken Mayoral elections are over. Doesn’t it kinda make you sick too?

Emarche, I am available for beer all next week. I can pay you in trade with recipes for organic baby food as well as quick meals for you and the wife (since you will never eat hot food outside of a restaurant again). 😯 Or at least for the next few years or so… 😆

Yes. Very, very true.

Spot on. I’d say you’ve earned yourself a beer or two.

Actually, self sufficiency would be Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here’s an article that MLK’s niece, Dr. Alveda King wrote about Dr. King:

Biffy, self-sufficiency would be T. Roosevelt. I am a “rugged individualist” btw.
Hi-tech jobs are great, but what about people that aren’t suited for the tech sector? We need to remove the stigma of “blue collar” from our vocabulary and try to redirect many chronic underachievers into areas where they may actually succeed. College is not for everyone. In fact, a college education has become so diluted it has almost become meaningless. The US needs farmers, electricians, welders, machinists, laborers, carpenters, etc. and there is no shame in any of these jobs. There is actually no shame in any job. I think too many people in this country have forgotten the value of hard work and expect to coast just because they have an education. Besides, that beer tastes so much better when you’ve earned it.

[quote comment=”102340″]Question for someone in the know (please no pie in the sky answers): My father explained to me last night that if you go into China as a corporation you HAVE to partner with a Chinese company OR all money you make in China must stay in China (it cannot come back to investors in your home country). Why can’t the US do likewise? Serious answers only.[/quote] Interesting. I’m sure someone else can contribute a better answer than me, but I would say it has to do with how things work in China. I watched Ted Koppel’s piece on China (pre-Olympics). In Communist China, if you are a business and want to conduct business in China whether you’re a native company or foreign one, you’re expected, and you must be approved by a communist official (bid or permit) to conduct business by 1) the normal paperwork, and especially 2) hand over the communist official a red envelope containing a large amount of money. It’s part of business there. A US company partnering up with a native Chinese company, the government is ensured of getting a piece of the action, as well as other pieces they collect from the foreign business itself (double dipping). If a US, or foreign company were to go it alone, then the government would have no control over them except to demand that all the money stay in China. That way, China always keeps a favorable trade advantage no matter what. It’s a nice idea… Read more »
