HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Rocket science is boring. Been there, done that.

Got screwed in the last job. Typical bullshit. Guy didnt want an apprentice, but the union sent me anyways. Union isnt helping. But they damn sure wanted dues asafp. Fuck em. UAW screwed a bunch of us twice when I built conversion vehicles. Thought trade unions would be better. Nope. Was at home in a paint booth (painted conversion vehicles and parts until the company went under in Aug 01). Then 2 yrs stuck in a crappy job at Orkin only to get fucked by office politics (got into it with a salesman there who started in on th e'motocycles are dangerous' crap for the umpteenth time. Nice how they go from 'you are doin a great job, customers are happy to 3 days later, 4 customers dont want you back, you are runnign around depressed, not caring, etc.. '. Then to building semi trailers at a company (SToughton trailer) that doesnt give a rats ass if you have a medical emergency in the family (dads open heart surgery). Also they dont care if you get hurt and wont do a damn thing about 1st shift setting up the crane to hurt someone on 2nd.

Thought of truck driving, but theres too many times I would probably end up punting some idiot off the road with an 80,000lb truck.

1. Too far to drive for minimum wage. (kidding on the min wage thing)

2. Would probably last 10 min there before Ken fires me for all the bald jokes I could do. Dont think using a buffer on his head when he's at a desk would be a good idea of a joke. Tortured my old supervisor at Geneva Vans for 8 yrs with bald jokes.
