Kent's Rant number two: Are you out there?

I want to try something different with this rant...

First a mere concept for your dealings with a hectic world

What is your productive wage?

How much do you make an hour?

total amount of pay check

divided by

number of hours in weeks it covered
(one week = 168 , two weeks = 336)

an example
Lets say you are paid minimum wage (texas)

40 * 7.25= 290

well taxes

290 * .7 = 203

( on average they take out the amount of 30 percent )

(this is already outlined on most pay stubs)

then you

new formula

the forty hours has to pay for 168 hours worth of time

203 in pay divided by 168 hours in a week

203/168= 1.208333333333333

this is your productive wage


So why is is this important

You can track hidden cost easily now

Drive to work
Shopping for supplies
communicating (ex reading the whole thread)

You will want this so you know what your cost are... makes a difference if something is worthwhile...

For instance, is it worth your time to move a house or pay movers
should you hire a maid or gardener

laugh but consider this... Sweating the small stuff pays off ... how much does shopping coast you


Well ATS I feel you have missed a few point so allow me to rant over this

Not my threads...

Ron Paul will be the next Potus!This is how I know

By Propulsion

Here is why you should read it

A possibility that sounds reasonable... Ron Paul may have snuck one in on the GOP...

The video sounds Accurate... if it is true Obama may face a bigger challenge then Romney could ever have brought... Obama may have beaten the Clintons, but Ron Paul may have at least destroyed the GOP...

ATS live 107

I called in ... and you should have been listening...

hurts my feelings you werent there

also you might miss a gem... ATS has reached the stage where it becomes increasingly possible to miss these golden nuggets

I called in over the torture debate...

Betcha Didnt see this coming...

By TheRedneck

the artificial manipulations of car parts... making it nearly impossible to keep older cars on the road

then it lept to the gold markets responses...

all on thread target...

Now two of my own

Missing Army- Kelli Bordeaux

A soldier has gone missing under mysterious circumstances
police with no leads
Army clueless

I suspect something being hidden

Walmart hushed up Mexico bribe network

The walmart story left me with a lot more questions..

how is it any different then Lobbing efforts and is it legal in Mexico

Does anyone have an accurate picture of how business is done in Mexico?

For my closing recommending thread

The Secret Meeting that changed hip-hop and destroyed a generation

By Jack Squat

This thread just makes you go hum!
To close to reality and way to feasible...

Pretty much an advanced psy-op to encourage crime among youth and others by an unknown group

What is sad the 90s mentioned as the cut off point

All of this is things you should be interested in

ATS live with multiple threads linked
rigging and repairing of elections
resource manipulation
Missing soldier and few care
Mexican and American business interactions
Music propaganda

Each one affects you personal ability to operate and live your life... your pocket book is directly affected as is your mind...

PS... have you visited the short stories section
The Ruler of the world Contest

Just curious. What would make you believe something is hidden? I think it's the husband.

reply to post by Manhater

not one mention of her work...

(other then generic examples)

She is good looking and yet managed to sail through her military career with no sexual harassment issues...It does not happen...

I think the military is burying something... note the words she didnt show up to work... non-association with military .....

as for the husband yes he knows a lot more then he is saying...

his behavior indicates it

A lot of questions are raised...

great layout.
you have some talent.

one "awe CRAP" will counsel out 20 "atta boys"

whats wrong with this sentence.

how is it any different then Lobbing efforts and is it legal in Mexico

its a perception issue.

you have some talent with math, I will give you that.

pretty girls in the military are generally protected by older men, who at some point want a payback. Looks like one cashed in. That's where I would be looking.
My Talent? I profile. Big time.

thank you

bad capitalization
run on sentence
bad punctuation


The perception is that they did something wrong... not the actualities of doing business

The problem I see is over approach by media.

A heavily biased approach and not looking into other possibilities.. (please note I am not a walmart booster... I have found most of their management to be morons)

Not a single look into doing business in Mexico

Cartels running various areas...
-government not doing anything

Various businesses operating manufacturing facilities

A government that is dependent on its northern neighbor...

In this atmosphere, and comparing with american behaviors..(look into Canada dry and caffeine free)

it is not bribes but cost of doing business...

You also have another statistic...

Is there a middle class trying to emerge in Mexico...

reply to post by ripcontrol

there is a middle class trying to emerge from every developing nation on this earth.

There are some threads right now that want to point fingers at a population not being sustained by the ground much longer in terms of food shortage.

The big problem to come with that regard is Developing Nations producing an emerging Middle Class that wants to eat better.

ETA: something has to give.
insert illuminautti population control, control of the masses, new religion homogenized or do they just slip out a virus that takes care of everything.

yeah, having friends in low places could help but

in the end ,does it really matter
