THE STORY LINES:

1.  PRESIDENT-ELECT OBAMA SAVES THE HOLIDAYS:

2.  MERGER CALLED OFF:

3.  EMERGENCY BAILOUT MONEY FOUND:

4.  CONTRACTS REVISITED:

 

President-elect Obama, in a last ditch effort convened his cabinet appointees to try to circumvent a holiday catastrophe!  There was heated discussions, much arm twisting ,and wheeling and dealing behind closed doors all day Christmas Eve.  But just before the deadline imposed by Santa’s schedule of toy delivery, there was a temporary agreement ironed out that everyone could live with!!  The federal government gathered up some left-over dollars out of the TARP fund that was recently allocated for banks, Wall Street, and all the CORPORATE CEO’S GOLDEN PARACHUTES, enough money to help both Santa and the Easter Bunny nurse their companies back to health!!  Thus preserving the holidays through these recession/depression times we’re having! 

One of the sticking items was, of course executive compensation and also re-working the union contracts!  The govt. has taken a stake in both Santa’s company, as well as the Easter Bunny’s operations.  Futhermore, the Dept of Commerce will have an input on the types of Christmas toys produced at the North Pole.  There are going be some constraints and requirements to produce more “GREEN” toys in the future!!  Additionally, the Easter Bunny as well as Santa, must produce and distribute more USA made and eco-friendly childrens presents!! 

 

Although the Senate Republicans held out and voted against this “bailout”, there were enough Democrats in both houses to marginally pass the resolution.  But there is something good in it for the taxpayers, they will share in the profitiblity of both companies as they work their way back to being a money-maker!!

 

Another  crises averted!!!

ONCE AGAIN, I LOOKED IT UP SO THAT YOU WOULDN’T HAVE TO!!!!

PS   THE PICTURE IS LIHUE WERE THE EASTER BUNNY AND SANTA ARE VACATIONING AFTER A TOUGH NEGOTIATIONS!!!

Christmas Tidings!!!!

STORY LINES:

1.  LAYOFFS AT THE NORTH POLE:

2.  LACK OF SPONSORSHIP ON THE SLEIGH: 

3.  POSSIBLE MERGER OF SANTA AND EASTER BUNNY:

Well it is two days before Christmas and the recession has impacted even Santa!!  The elfs are being asked to work over-time at no additional compensation!  Additionally, the elfs are asked to void their union contract, forgive their production goals bonus pay, give up seniority, and renegoitate vacation and pay.  As much as 25% of the elf force may see pink slips by Christmas Day!!  President George W. Bush has flatly rejected any bailout of the North Pole!!!  To quote the Prez,”….the North Pole is fundamentally sound”!!  Needless to say, there is massive dissention!!

 

There are rumors running around the North Pole that because of a lack of corporate sponsorship dollars available, Santa is talking to the Easter Bunny about merger possiblities!!  They could share production costs and travel expenses on toy deliveries covering both holidays.  That would be a substantial savings for both organizations!!  However, there is a power struggle between Santa and the Easter Bunny as to who will be the CEO of the merged corporation.  Also there is difficulty in naming the new organization.  Will it be Santa Bunny, Inc. or The Easter Claus Corp.???  The new Board of Directors are really struggling with this and many more points in the new corporate charter.

This reporter will keep an ear out for the latest on this and many more news worthy items that have a direct affect on all of us!!  I am writing this from the crew lounge of the San Francisco airport, but that doesn’t stop me from “getting right on the stories that matter”!  Captainblowdri is my name and journalism is my game!!

In closing, this reporter wishes to each one a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!  Additionally, let your loved ones know that they are truley loved!!!!
