Corporate America: more responsive than Congress?


Now think about it: the Louie Gohmert’s and Joe Shimkus’ of the Congress really don’t care about what I think; they reflect their own constituencies. But a corporation very much cares about sales; it really doesn’t matter if they sell the item in Oklahoma or California. The profit is roughly the same. So here, the number of people who have money to spend matters, hence the opinion of such people matters. There is no gerrymandering to skew things, at least for national brands.

I know that this is not perfect, but wow…

Workout notes: weights then running on the treadmill:
weights; usual PT stuff (shoulder, hip, feet), pull ups (5 sets of 10; less rest…very tiring), incline presses: 10 x 135, 5 x 160, 10 x 140, dumbbell military: 10 x 50, 10 x 45, 20 x 40 standing, Hammer machine rows: 3 sets of 10 x 200.

Then treadmill run: 4 miles in 45:09. I did 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 (increase every 10 min to 3 miles) then increase every 0.25 miles. That was my first “run” in a long time; I thought that I had lost the ability to run.

Weight: more or less the same; ok, down slightly.

  1. Ollie,

    I didn’t really think I could get surprised following Trump’s last year or so in the limelight, but am genuinely astonished at his behaviour over the last few days.

    He appears to saying that if, for example, someone drove an agricultural muck-spreader through the centre of a pleasant town, spraying everything with shit and deliberately trying to knock people over, and someone pushed them away from the controls, then they’re both as bad as each other………….

    This is just going to embolden the pencil-dicked inadequates………….are there any more of these arsehole gatherings planned……not to get all Blues Brothers, but are there any Illinois nazis ?

  2. I was watching a documentary last night……………I wasn’t aware that Peoria (and beyond) had the first scale model of the solar system…….cool.

    • Yes, I’ve run (or bicycled) past most of the planets on the model; the outer planets are along a bike path north of town.
