Update on Where Velcro's Been

It's been a long time since I've written here, July 2013, so I figured it would be good to give you all an update on what's been going on. 

First of all were some health issues.  I got desperately ill watching and listening and reading about all the crap that was and is happening in Washington DC and here locally in Tucson.  Bad case of rectuminitis, or inflammation of the nerve between the rectum and the eyes, giving one a shitty outlook on things.  That nearly put me in the hospital, where the growing problem that is Obamacare probably would have led to curtains for old Velcro.  Got myself back home where I've been recuperating ever since.

That gave me a lot of time to think, which leads to the second thing.  I'm working on a new business and think I may have the corner on a market here.  The government has sold us a bill of goods, like Benghazi, protecting the border through amnesty, Obamacare, and the like.  If they are so successful with that, why can't I be?

Postholes I've sold to a construction company.
So my new business is selling postholes.  Mostly 3-footers, for ranchers around here and some construction businesses (see picture).  It has really taken off though, and has kept me pretty busy, which is also why I haven't been writing much.  Turns out postholes come in all kinds of sizes and shapes, from little ones for house-for-sale type applications, to big ones for billboards and telephone poles. 

I've already run into a little ethical dilemma.  The county has ordered some potholes for roads around here, and I'm not sure what to do about it.  After I filled my first order I began thinking that I wasn't really helping things by selling potholes.  But there's good business in it, and you know the government from the county on up will always be dialing up things like that.

For example, the local paper here made a big stink last August about widespread poverty here in Tucson and southern Arizona.  Really sad.  Now, there's also a great big mining company that wants to open a big copper mine south of Tucson in the Santa Rita mountains.  But the county and other liberal elitists just can't get over how pretty the mountains are and have been fighting tooth and nail to keep the mine out and local families poor.  That's like showing a hungry person a sizzling steak and throwing it in the garbage.

So that's why I think I can succeed in the posthole business.  In fact, I think I'm going to have to build another warehouse soon.
