Ferdie to Bob

  • Boojferd
    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    Post office is a hopeless case. It needs to declare bankruptcy, relign costs, and start over.
    I hope the Deering Banjo company survives the latest increase in state income taxes. I would say California is a failed state, but that distinctions goes to Illinois.
    Both run by Democrats.


    Worker's Comp here can be quite controllable unless your employees become injured and your modification rate rises.
    A failed state? 30 million of us would probably disagree. I've been part of a very successful business for over 23 years. Sure, ownership would love lower taxes, but they all still live here and live quite well. Business is so bad we've had a waiting list to rent slips in our marina almost the entire 23 years. Thirty feet is the smallest slip. And surprising even to me, Democrats keep getting stronger out here. Must be millions of happy people.
    Yes, some businesses may leave and belly-ache as they go. But we go on and people keep moving in. Since I moved here in 1978 California's population has increased by more than the total population of Illinois and Missouri combined. That's a lot of added jobs.


    I see California has the 3rd hightest unemployment rate in the US at 9.8%, as of November 2012 versus Texas at 6.5% and its population growth in the last 10 years lags behind Texas.


    Didn't realize our comments had anything to do with Texas, but good on you for finding a state growing faster. I'm sure there are several more

    High unemployment 'cuz y'all keep moving here. Probably the unemployed from Midwest looking for jobs. Population still increased faster than US on a whole; I'm sure faster than Missouri or Illinois.
    I wish San Diego would stop growing.
