New Brunswick to reduce workforce by 4500.

New Brunswick is going to reduce its government work force by 4500. This will mainly be done through attrition, done through retirement. I imagine the first few years, the government will see no direct benefit, as severance packages and the such will negate any budgetary help. They will re hire 3000 of the total, leaving 1500 positions forever vacant.

The Federal Government, is on a whim to eliminate 21000 approx jobs. The military civilian support jobs will be hit, as well as in other departments. The CBC will be laying off approximately 450 employees in order to deal with their budget losses.

The IMF warned about doing this, as broadcast on the news, a day ago. They worry that if every country reduces budgetary spending too fast, that the world could go back into a recession again. Spain had announced budgetary spending cuts as well. As the world struggles to deal with deficits and debt loads, it means less spending out in the economy. Less money to go to keep it humming along. This would be against the FDR principles. Franklin D Roosevelt was one of my favorite presidents. He helped the United States struggle against a severe depression, and brought back the country to strength and stability. He created jobs, and helped to ignite the economy. What todays governments are doing, are reducing jobs.

With the price of gasoline headed to a 141 in Canada, this is another high peak. Maybe not a record, but it is getting there. They say the refining capacity is low. This is what is creating the problem. If this is what is creating the problem, the United States, or Canada, should create more "Refining Capacity" and end this problem once and for all.

This will definitely have an effect on truck sales, and overall spending. Less money to be spent on goods and services. Create some "Refining Capacity" somewhere, in the world.

The economy is in a teetering balance. It seemed to be going ahead for awhile, with the USA creating over 200 000 jobs in the last month or so. We hope it can continue, to foster economic stability followed by growth. What we need is companies to expand their product lines, their ingenuity, to create work. It is up to small business to step up to the plate, and create, expand, grow bigger, to create jobs. Grow bigger. That is the bottom line!

Have a good afternoon, till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
