After U.S. VP AlGore received a Nobel Prize, well, it's become rather meaningless, no? Oh, and recently there was that other American guy, too...

It's like not keeping score and trophies for all... and I know you know what I'm talking about.

Up to eight years ago MOS had a great burger but they lost my business. Why? They held their prices during the hard times but visibly shrank their star product. Oh! I haven't eaten there since.

Tip: Losing a lifetime customer is very costly. Also, "kuchikomi" can kill a business.

Posted in: How much is too much for a CEO's salary? See in context

In a public company shareholders allow what a CEO makes. If they don't agree with it -- for any reason -- then they sell their interest in the company. If this continues the board of directors then fire the CEO. Ya dig?

See: equity

Odd that no-one balks about the compensation of leaders of private companies, eh?

First the CEO's salary, next yours. Just give it some time.

I wonder why smoking is demonized but not alcohol. I've yet to hear of someone having a smoke and then beating up their spouse.

The real "monsters" are those selfish people who insist on smoking and polluting the air that we breathe in various places.

Various places: cars, trucks?

Man-oh-man, even trees pollute. Check it out.

40 years ago non-smokers cared not. I think we've created anti-smoking "monsters."

Tobacco doesn't kill young people. SHS is a modern-day myth. Some may find flatulence on a a train or even a compost pile more disgusting.

Open a window.

"New" union for club hostesses hold their first strike (protest).

It would be interesting to know who is driving this union; the nationalists or the communists (they hate each other).

Been there, done that, do tell, please.

Many hostesses have complained about not getting paid, violence, sexual harassment and fine systems.

Been there, done that. Quit, you idiot.

Health Care Will Pass

http://www.mullings.com/03-19-10.htm

And on Monday … guess what? The sun will come up. The Earth will continue to spin on its axis. America will not be officially renamed: France; neither Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, nor Haile Selassie will not have come back to life; and Tiger Woods' return to competitive play will set an all-time record for viewers of the Masters.

Here's the point: The Democrats are only doing what Democrats do when they have the power to do it. If Republicans hadn't done so badly at the polls in 2006 and 2008 this wouldn't have happened.

Socialists -- including "social engineers" -- don't get your hopes up just yet. Let's not forget President Clinton and welfare reform, driven mostly by The Heritage Foundation.

This is merely a speed bump in American history. Freedom Fries will prevail.

Posted in: Toyota president urges workers, dealers to work toward new start See in context

According to Consumer Reports' 2010 Car Brand Perception Survey, Toyota was by far and away the winner with 196 points compared to second-best Ford at 141. (The lowest score was Hummer with an 11.) For the year before, Toyota again easily topped out at 193 with Honda second at 149 and last place held by Suzuki at seven.

As I noted in an earlier blog, Edmunds.com, the premier online resource for automotive information, has obtained and reviewed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration complaint database.

A key finding: Toyota was the subject of 9.1 percent of the complaints from 2001 through 2010 (through February 3), including the sudden acceleration complaints, even while selling 13.5 percent of all new cars in the U.S. This puts it third in sales, but 17th in complaints.

So despite what the analysts say and what Toyoda seemed to support, there's no objective evidence that Toyota has of late been making a comparatively inferior product. As is so often the case with media-anointed "experts," the analysts are positing explanations for a non-existent phenomenon.

Few seem to understand what is going on here.

"I'm a retired systems engineer for Ford Motor Company. As such I've survived a number of fairly major recalls but I do find it interesting the way both the government and the media are continuing to bash Toyota. You know, they seem to be going after them with continued gusto. In fact, today I hear that there are Democratic demands for congressional investigations, which I'm sure will be televised. But I haven't heard anyone in the media mention the fact that Toyota, who currently operates five assembly plants in the US, has no UAW members in any of the plants. Just wondering. I find it interesting. I know you were talking earlier about the way Obama kind of takes care of his buddies in the UAW and I'm just wondering if you think it's possible that Ron Gettelfinger maybe could have been a recent visitor or guest at the White House?"

"It's interesting, too, that Toyota did have a unionized plant at the Fremont, California, NUMMI facility and they announced late last year that they were going to mothball the plant. That's the one that they inherited from General Motors -- and, as such, inherited a bunch of GM UAW workers along with it. But that was their highest cost assembly plant, and that was the reason given for their shutting it down this year."
