Pukerock,

You do have a way with words,

that nobody can deny . .

Most assuredly, you seem to have a need knack, for pounding, and since you want me to pound away anyway,

I think you might be just the person that nobody can deny, to come and pound for me.

How much, btw, do you charge?

By the number of pounds, beats, strokes, or blows?

just wondrin

Puke & whatchmacall ii,

fyfi,

frog is nearly blind from what is known, and he's too old to work with that handicap.

fwifw,

even with his blindness, he still has the ability to "see" more than the both of you put together in a bag.

Puke & whatchmacall 11,

Froggie gave you fair warning.

Evidently you didn't have anything better to do.

Even after posting, it is plainly evident you had nothing better to do, but should have, now you've posted your ignorance for all to read, but without as much as a "FAIR WARNING" as did the frog.

Fair Warning!

GO DO SOMETHING ELSE...

if... you think better times and places didn't exist as this 'story' unfolds.

It takes many words to tell the story, to repeat the story.

Better that you find something else to read, not read just another round of rabid, rant from an old fool that knows more than you - collectively.

But….

In a better day, in a better time,

with better wages,

less inflation,

less technology,

less airport technology and nearly nil facilities,

and even with dumber people …

in the city, county, state and nation…

we had people, political parties, and

politicians, rich people, republicans and

their corporations …

All of them

paying more in the way of supporting

their country, their state,

their cities, and all of

the social, civil, and educational infrastructures.

We hand unions,

we had rich people, corporations, and OUR government

working for the betterment of society,

NOT as where the rich, their corporation, their courts of appeal

and

the supreme court have turned back the hands of time to the 1900’s 1920’s, 1930’s.

Escanaba airport for many years beginning around 1960 where traffic increased almost year after year and was recorded at

over 26,000 - 28,000 for the year,

during BETTER TIMES, for MORE PEOPLE.

We had real jets,

with stand-up room

with real food,

with real more comfortable seats,

with real baggage handling

- at NO CHARGE

with real passenger capacities;

PLANE WITH PASSENGER CAPACITY up to 130,

landing and taking off at least

three (3) times per day.

What have the rich,

the republicans, their corporations

done for legal, citizens working by the hour for wages,

what have they done for us?

NOTHING,

NADA,

ZERO

ZIP!

Think about it

Collectively and singularly,

they have given us more inflation

more debt

higher prices - for 99% of everything we actually NEED

more time on the job - and the strong possibility of dying on the job - if you have one.

Less jobs

Less job security

Less, to zero ability to negotiate working, wage, and job conditions

Less healthcare

Less pension

More sour pusses, crabby people, more poorly disciplined children and poorly motivated parents and lack of parenting

Net Gain = NOTHING

NoW THEN:

Backward, MARCH !

Until we cover enough time that turns conditions and the clock back to where big business had placed people and society in the 1900’s thru WWII

under the express pressures from their collective THUMBS.

Bow YOUR HEADS and ThankfullY praise:

The rich

The PRIVATE CORPORATE political parties

- both republican and democratic

their corporations

their financially backed and financed minions,

the political, legislative, and rule making units of government

YOU - HAVE WHAT YOU DESERVE AND VOTED FOR

- a long backward walk through time and history that will remind you of

what your great-grandparents, grandparents, mothers and fathers fought for, for over a 100 years:

Improvement of nearly EVERY aspect of life that affected the majority of the people in this nation.

IT WAS WORKING, WAGE-EARNING, AMERICAN CITIZENS THAT MADE THIS NATION

IT WAS NOT

THE RICH

THEIR REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATIC PARTY

NOT THE CORPORATIONS

but the DETERMINED will of the people

who decided that

the rich have their place,

their corporations have their place,

politicians and political parties

could REALLY be held to some standard,

we had an independent press who hounded and watch-dogged

these people to report their greed

- not at all like anything

resembling the farcical nature of

government and society that exists today.

13,000 people using the airlines ?

- SORRY -

BETTER PEOPLE

all of them

BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT

YEARS AND YEARS AGO!
