Insanity today............SHAKE SHACK

Yesterday the average SHAK restaurant was worth $48 million. Today it is $53 million and rising, following the overnight 6% surge in the company's market cap. Because why not.

Jordan Parisian, 2015, Fishing Bass


My son, Jordan Parisian, is the President of his High School fishing team and this year took 13th place in the Georgia state HS fishing championship out of 68 boats.  To say that he loves to fish is an understatement.  Fishing with Jordan yesterday was my pal, Ron Branch from Tifton, Georgia.  Ron has more bass fishing trophies than most people have socks and at one time long ago was very close to turning professional.  

 Ron and Jordan fished this 350 acre lake 2 years ago and boated nearly 90 fish until they tired out.

In all the years of fishing and seeing big bass, the biggest bass, by far, that Ron has ever laid eyes on, came at around the 4 minute mark of this video.  There was a tremendous amount of exclamatory profanity that Jordan dubbed out for viewer nondiscretion after they saw it,  which is why the sound is a little off.

Ron thought that fish could be a Georgia state record.  Both Jordan and Ron have caught big 10 pound bass and this one literally made a 10 pounder look like a dwarf.    This big bass was going to swallow a 1.5 pound bass for lunch!   You can see the wave action as the big fish makes his run at that little bass.

Jordan at one point went 16 for 16.   They fished until their hands cramped up and called it quits. 

I hope you enjoy a taste of south Georgia bass fishing at it's finest!  Jordan graduates from high school tomorrow night and next year will be a member of the Bass Fishing Team at the University of Georgia where he will be an engineering major.

Remember that definition of insanity.......?

No wonder Washington never changes – 79 members of Congress have been there since Bill Clinton’s first term in the White House.  This list includes names such as Reid, Feinstein, McConnell, McCain, Pelosi, Boehner, Rangel and Boxer. 

With a 15% approval rating,The American People absolutely hate the job that Congress is doing, and yet the same clowns just keep getting sent back to Washington again and again.

Nearly 20 years ago...............

I was told that Salomon trading floor at 7 World Trade was a den of thieves.  If a quarter got loose it was a brawl.  I had a chance to visit the mammoth floor on the 8th anniversary of the Big Crash.   It reminded me of a row of brokers offices in the Drexel Burnham Lambert office in LaJolla.   We called it "murderers row" for lack of a better term.  I don't think it mattered, the clients got twirled.  In fact there was one broker who would sell open-end fixed-income mutual funds and at the same time as he wrote up the "buy" ticket he would write up the "sell" ticket!     The office manager at the time, Walter J. Shaw, did his best.   He wasn't the finest branch manager I ever worked with and far from the worst, but he never tossed his guys under the bus.

The best branch manager I ever worked with was David B. Utter.

    

Thank you Mr. William J. O'Neil

Success in a free country is simple.   Get a job,  get an education, and learn to save and invest wisely.

Anyone can do it.

The Oglala...........

Father Eugene Buechel,  S.J., (Black Eagle)  priest and missionary's favorite argument was that no people in history had risen so swiftly from a primitive life to meet a strange civilization as had the Sioux.  Whereas the English, Irish, German and other European barbaric peoples had become civilized gradually over the centuries.  The Indian had been whirled into confrontation.  And yet in about 75 years they had made a marvelous adaptation.

Anybody but Hillary..........

I don't have much of a dog in the fight.   I don't write checks for big amounts to politicians.  I write some small ones once in a while but nothing big.

Who ever is on the conservative side opposing the Clinton sleaze team is going to have a battle.

You won't just be running against the snake herself.

You will be up against Hollywood, the media, immigrants, academia, the Bush Mafia and every rich liberal in America.

Imagine trying to sway the entitlement crowd to vote for a conservative!

Good luck with that.
