I'm looking for some ideas, on how to secure a dumpster lid.
The problem I have about putting a lock on, the hauler comes in the wee
hours of the morning. So, it must be free to empty the garbage out.
We have a store, which we throw out boxes etc. The other day, one of the
employees heard a cry for help. It appears a very large lady had climbed on
top of some wooden crates, and attempted to fetch some corrugated boxes
from the dumpster. In her venture, she had slipped head first into the
dumpster. The employees could not rescue her from the dumpster. The local
firefighters had to retrieve her from the dumpster.
So, as you can see, we are in a pickle. We desire some advice. Any thoughts
are warmly greeted.
Giggle. What indicator shows a "destroyed" economy? Unemployment? Housing
starts? Producer Price Index? Consumer Price Index? Wages? GDP?
And a "Neocon" has little to do with the economy; Neocons are concerned with
foreign policy, not domestic.
Ah, okay I understand.
1. Foreign debt is good.
2. I'll agree that government spending is beyond bad. But neocons are not
responsible for the overspending - the Democrats control the purse.
3. A falling dollar is double-good - it dramatically increases the demand
for U.S. products.
"Poor economy?" Hardly. The U.S. economy, by any objective standard or
measurement is beyond robust; it is approaching heavenly. There hasn't been
such a superb economy since the years immediately after WW2, if then.
Just consider one example: gasoline prices. While current prices seem high,
they're not. First they have yet to break the record for gas prices
(adjusted for inflation). Second, dollar/gallon is not the best measure:
dollars/mile driven is much better. The average mileage for a passenger car
has doubled since the early '70s, essentially cutting in half the cost per
trip. And thirdly, the cost of gasoline as a percentage of disposable income
has also dropped considerably.
Bottom line: We notice the rise in gasoline prices, but the rises don't
really affect us as much as a much lower price used to.
Our current hole goes back to around the LBJ. It has been an equal
opportunity cluster (well you know) for years made worse by the creative
accounting of Social Security (again bipartisan in nature) that
effectively hid the real costs of both SS and general spending.
Interestingly enough if you look at 5 year increases in spending, the
last five years under the GOP was pretty much the same %age increase as
the last five years under the Dems from '89 to 94. There was a brief
shining moment between about '94 and '99 where the %age increase was
about half that. But the GOP got over it. In spades.
Falling dollar: Good for those of us heavily invested in
international securities, especially those traded in local currencies.
I promise that when I harvest my profits, I'll put them back into the
