Just Observations

It wasn't surprising....the afternoon talky-talk show.....Anderson Cooper....cancelled after dismal ratings. About a year ago....I caught twenty minutes of the show and kept thinking it wasn't much to watch and maybe it was meant just for housewives.  Replacement?  Don't know.

It came out today....that the Fiat management folks are discussing the movement of both Jeep and Chrysler to Italy.  You probably won't see it mentioned on CBS or ABC....but it's out in the business news.  The Italian government will give them a huge export deal.  The feeling within Jeep and Chrysler circles?  I think they are a bit shocked, and wondering if they might be given a chance to learn Italian and move to Italy with the team.  The advantage of saving Chrysler back four years ago?  I hate bringing up this topic....but if they'd gone through bankruptcy court.....the Fiat guys might not have gotten their hands on Chrysler   The odds that China will end up with some part of Jeep?  I'd wager it's a pretty good chance.

The President came out in some speech today, and said he'd have a Secretary of Business...in his next cabinet.  I kinda scratched my head.  He says that the business world needs someone in the cabinet to connect to and make requests to change things.  Course, you'd think that the Secretary of Commerce would be the same thing as the Secretary of Business.....but apparently, this just isn't possible.

This Libya business being a cover-up?  Well...it ought to take three days for some independent Senator to find out the real truth, and then things ought to be settled.  That hasn't happened.  Both parties are charged up and unable to act in a decent fashion.  So the public is left to wonder....true or false?  You just don't know.
