"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Give Me A Break???

General Motors is reporting a loss of over $1 Billion due to competition, weak sales and higher health care costs. That seems like a reasonable economics lesson. However, at the GM Plant in Janesville, Wisconsin workers go on break at a local tavern less than 100 yards from the main gate. Tavern owner Mr. Zachow said workers don't get drunk when they hit his bar during breaks. "They only have less than a half-hour for their breaks. If they can get two or three beers down, that's about it," Mr. Zachow said. "It's fast and furious. And they get a little exercise walking over. The bar is in a good place. If they were going down to the other bar down the street, they'd have to go down a whole mile." My, my! Two or three beers on a work break in half an hour. Next time your GM vehicle is recalled you might want to shout, "It must have been Miller Time!" Source: Wall Street Journal
