Endless summer

The Country Curmudgeon

There is a move on to keep kids in school year-round. It seems we need to keep up with the rest of the world.
If I am reading the situation correctly, the only way we will ever keep up is to learn to live on starvation wages while performing mind-numbing, soul-deadening, repetitive tasks. It is not Britain, France or Germany that we are having trouble with.
I will say that we do not prepare our school kids for the reality of the work place what with the numerous breaks and vacations. It is a bit of a shock when they discover that they have to show up for work EVERY DAY.

When free enterprise fails, what’s next?

A View From the Edge

What do you do when your economy is built on the mineral and natural assets of your country? In the case of an unregulated free enterprise system, the answer is watch them dissipate, be exported for quick profit, slowly dwindle till there are none. That’s the capitalist way, that’s the unchained entrepreneurial way.

Gas price petition shifts into high gear

The Millerton News Editorial

The Harlem Valley Chamber of Commerce has joined forces with the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce in its plan to stop ever-rising gas prices — which have put the business community at its mercy. It has taken the positive step of piggy-backing onto an online petition the county chamber created, to be sent to federal and state lawmakers, calling on them to put an end to the high prices at the pumps.

Take that, you bully!

The Country Curmudgeon

Humans love to posture. A favorite pastime is the physical confrontation in which participants close their personal distance to inches, down from the 3-foot zone customary in Western Civilization. Occasionally you get a “close talker,” but mostly people respect that personal zone until they get belligerent.
If you are not expecting the advance, it can be quite disconcerting, resulting in an involuntary step back as you attempt to re-establish your distance. This is what the other guy wants, for it is a sign that he is dominating.

Now is a good time to bet on the American dollar

A View From the Edge

One of the problems with spouting good-sounding but dead-wrong policy changes is that it is so hard for the egos to admit they might have it even possibly, maybe a little, just a teensy bit, wrong.
You see, all this economic disaster has happened before — in fact worse — to many of the world’s largest economies. In the 1980s Japan suffered an economic bank meltdown that made our savings and loan disaster look like a kiddies’ party.

Lions Tales

The Millerton Lions’ second dinner meeting of the year was held Wednesday, April 27, at American Legion Post 178. Good food (of course), new faces we hope to see again next month and good topics of conversation.
It is now official that the Millerton Fire Company, the American Legion and the Millerton Police Department are all on board to join us again this year for our carnival, to be held from Thursday, June 2, through Sunday, June 5, at Eddie Collins Field on Route 22 in Millerton.
