zobop Theory: Covid-19 May Have Silenced Phone Scammers From Afar.

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! I hope you’re not reading this from the country of India because this may hurt. A recent thought occurred to me that the reason my phone has been silent by those incessant phone calls by [alleged] “phone scammers” could be the Covid-19 disease has or is killing them off. 🤷🏽‍♂️ I know that sounds horrible but it might be true. So enjoy the silence for now. Who knows when the call center phone scammers might pick up where they left off.

I’ve also noticed I haven’t been getting a lot of “junk mail” either. I guess no one has been working at companies to mail junk to my mailbox. Trust me, I don’t miss it!

Until neXt time…

Looking For America? Corporate America Isn’t Looking For You.

Leave a comment

Hello fellow zobopians! Long time no see, you know how I be. After the election of *President* Trump, I’ve been at a loss of words. Now that we all know what a “white backlash” looks and feels like, I guess I have some thoughts on the subject now.

Most white working class Americans voted for Donald “art of the deal” Trump because well, they think he’s actually good at the art of the deal. Just look at how *President* Trump has been acting. Corporate-minded fools like Trump think they can just treat government like a business.  You can’t!  In government there’s going to be push-back when you fire someone because of a lack of loyalty. But here’s the thing. You can’t expect cult of personality loyalty in government! That would be authoritarianism! But that’s what the white working class-less Americans got. And now all these white working class Americans are yelling and crying for their Affordable Care Act (ACA) healthcare plans. They just didn’t like that it was called “Obamacare”. Obamacare was just a nickname for the ACA. Same thing! Duh?

Looking for America – [art saves lives]

I’m sure most citizens also voted for Trump because they think he’s “going to bring jobs back”.  Right.  I guess these foolish Americans also think segregation is going to come back too.  [Don’t we already have that, again?]  Let me just state this loud and clear, “jobs are not coming back to America!”  Corporate America isn’t looking for you Americans!  This is why they want (cheap labor) immigrants.  Of course the U.S. companies claim they can’t find employees.  You can read their excuse.  [They ain’t looking for you fool!]  The corporate bosses don’t want you.  They don’t want to pay to train/re-train you.  Building a wall or stopping people from certain countries won’t stop corporate America from getting the cheap labor it wants.

Get back to work training your replacement!

I guess it’s obvious now that the Almighty Globalization didn’t raise everyone’s boats.  It only lowered everyone’s wages.  U.S. business gets at least half the blame for all of this.  That means the other half of the blame falls on the rest of us for not adapting to the Almighty Third-Wave Economy.  Read that report here.

As you can see I’ve been thinking about this a long now.  It took me this long to finally get it out on blog.  I hope enough people read this because corporate America is looking.  Until neXt time…

The Tonight Show Brought To You By The Letter J

Hello fellow zobopians! It’s time for some observational humor. I spend most of my time on my Twitter account. 🙂 But I still think about other stuff, like…has anyone ever noticed that all the NBC Tonight Show, (permanent), guest hosts first names begin with the letter “J”? Johnny Carson, Joan Rivers, Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon.  That’s what I was thinking about today!

Mini-Wage

Happy New Year fellow zobopians!  It took me some time to get my blogging juices flowing for 2015.  And the best I can do is a photo opportunity.  Anything for the topic of the minimum wage for the working poor.  Let’s face it, anybody working at minimum wage is poor. That’s the way the “powers that be” want it.

Lies, Lies, Lies! They’re Gonna Get You!

Hi there fellow zobopians!  The debate about the Minimum Wage is full of lies.

Lie #1) Minimum wage pulls workers out of poverty. Most employees are getting few, if any, company-sponsored benefits like healthcare or paid time off  Most workers are getting government benefits.

Lie #2) Minimum wage will kill jobs.  Most profits low-wage labor go toward the salaries and bonuses of corporate executives.

Lie #3) Increasing minimum wage will impact small businesses.  If or when wages go up, small businesses won’t feel the impact now, but it could change in the far future.

Lie #4) Most minimum wage workers are teenagers.  Most workers are working women over the age of 20, usually the head of her family.

Sham Chicago

2 Comments

Hello fellow zobopians! Time for a citizens political rant. I’m on a roll with rants this month, aren’t I? (That might be bad English.) Anyway…

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel gets to spend $55 million in property taxes for a swanky new Marriott hotel in the South Loop. Meanwhile…Chicago citizens might have to pay higher property taxes to finance pension funds for public employees. What the hell am I missing? Chicago citizens are getting fleeced and ripped-off when it comes to any kind of taxes! Taxes and higher fees and we have nothing to show for it! Except potholes and falling bridge overpasses.

And on top of all that, Illinois companies get tax breaks and public subsidies. No jobs or business expansion to show for it. NOTHING. TO. SHOW. FOR! What a SHAM!
