IFS NEWS WRITERS

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

LIMON CO - (IFS)  I could not resist.  It had to be done.  Going to my Facebook page, I get this posting from Gov. Sarah Palin.  It appears that the Palinites have been working overtime to drum up support for the governor.  I believe all of the links are live, and if you care to, you can use this form of her's to make a decision as to her running in 2012 or not?  Again, I could not resist the urge. -- KHS

LIMON CO (IFS) - Robert Byrd -1917-2010, the last of the "Old Bulls" that controlled the US Senate for decades and third inline to become the president at one time.  Byrd leaves a great legacy in the Senate that will take many years to match up with.  This writer really was not a 'Byrd" fan, but was very interested in his tacit approaches to solving problems on the Senate floor.  Byrd will be remembered for several outstanding "quotes" in history.  And as the Senate prepared to debate authorization for war in Iraq in early 2003, Byrd thrilled antiwar activists with his lament — "Today, I weep for my country" — and gave a speech that would be reprinted in several languages and posted on many websites — no small achievement for a man who did not use a computer.  "We stand passively mute in the United States Senate, paralyzed by our own uncertainty, seemingly stunned by the sheer turmoil of events," he admonished. "We are truly sleepwalking through history."

LIMON CO (IFS) - Speaking with Novelist Barbara Louise Holmes about  General Stanley McChrystal's Situation,  she had this to say, ". . .McChrystal's no fool, and there has to be a good reason for his name calling, and I would not be a bit surprised if there would be a  political agenda to his words.  Holmes places him among one of the "brightest"  generals in the history of the United States, and as such, this error in judgement was done for a reason.   Holmes, whose father was  a naval officer during  World War II, who saw duty in the Pacific theater of operations, gives her an understanding of the military mindset, as with her own years of service in the military, especially in the legal departments, she understands the responsibility of command of what can and can not be said between the civilian and the military side."

Holmes, starts off the conversation, like this . . ." A Hole of His Own Making - is the cry among the military leaders.  McChrystal wanted away out of the box, and to establish himself as 2012 elections as a true leader, as he has worked for the administration, and they did not listen.  So Tea Partiers, this is your moment in history, a handsome young white man, four star general, with a voice of defiance for authority, and a true leader for the party, I give you 2012 Presidential Candidate Stanley McChrystal" - this June 23, 2010, Barbara Louise Holmes.


Barack Obama has an easy choice to make: fire a general who has established a culture of insubordination and indifference toward civilian leaders and partners in government or defer yet again to a general who acquires power like medals every time he outwits or outmaneuvers the White House.
General Stanley McChrystal went over clear lines in the debate about the surge into Afghanistan with freelance comments he made in London. Recently, McChrystal stated that the move into Kandahar would slow and threw into doubt confidence in a July 2011 drawdown start date. He didn't consult with anyone before a public redesign of US strategy.
And now in this Rolling Stone report, "The Runaway General" (pdf), McChrystal and his team are reported ridiculing Joe Biden, Richard Holbrooke, Jim Jones, just about everyone not in their groove on strategy.
McChrystal has gone over too many lines.
Obama needs to fire him. If he doesn't, McChrystal's brand will be validated and the environment of insubordination and unprofessional conduct will be reinforced.
If McChrystal survives his White House encounter, then Obama will be diminished.
That is what this has come to.

Limon CO (IFS) - We apologize for the misstatements of British Petroleum's Mr Svanberg, he just fell out of an oil carrier to earth a couple of days ago. Oh those wee little people who his company is built upon and the gasoline gun he places to our wee little heads and charges us insane amounts of money to buy his products. Well this writer has stopped all purchases of any BP products. They will never get another cent out of me wee little pockets. On Wednesday, BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg told reporters in Washington: "I hear comments sometimes that large oil companies are greedy companies or don't care, but that is not the case with BP. We care about the small people."  Is BP chairman Carl-Henrik Svanberg out of his depth as the firm fights the Deepwater Horizon disaster, or is his lack of comment tactical?  How is Svanberg, now inextricably shackled to the Deepwater Horizon disaster going to spend the remainder of his career defending the court cases, and will be otherwise unemployable.
BP will have to restructure, to contain all of the losses and find a totally new image. The oil industry business models are now being rewritten. It would be a great change of heart if all of the oil  companies would ban together to help in this issue and change their image as well. But they are a greedy bunch and will fall on the sword one by one as if like maggots on a corpse, they scramble to pick over the bones of BP's falling market shares. Svanberg, who is going to have to act on these issues, is doing well to distance himself while he can for he will be among the members of the little people in a very short time.

Danish Company Sells U.K. Supermarket Unit to Wal-Mart’s Asda

June 01, 2010

American-owned U.K. retailer Asda Group Ltd. announced Thursday that it had reached an agreement with Dansk Supermarked A/S to purchase its subsidiary, Netto Foodstores Ltd., for $1.1 billion. The deal is subject to regulatory approval in Britain, but Asda said it expects to finalize the transaction later this summer and to complete the transition of the Netto stores by the middle of 2011. The transaction will enable Asda to convert Netto’s U.K. locations into Asda stores and integrate them into its new supermarkets division for units with fewer than 25,000 sq. ft. Averaging 8,000 sq. ft., the 193 Netto stores in the United Kingdom will continue operations under existing management until Asda receives official approval.
