    The German ambassador to the United States will be in my office in a few hours, I'm trying like hell to behave myself. He's here for a tour of our factory, with members of the house of representatives, local and state officials, etc. It's an election year, typical shit really.

    Please run an experiment for me! I hear Germans have an underdeveloped sense of humor. Please find out if this is true or not for me! Say using a banana peel to trip a local political media-seeker while wearing a clown outfit! :D

    I'll send letters to the jail or mental institution you finally wind up in! ;)

    I can already confirm, the Germans have no sense of humor at all.

    I was just chatting with the head of security, and he said "Someone bigger is coming in a few weeks, but I can't tell you who..." So who would be "bigger" than members of the senate and a foreign ambassador? We're speculating that Ronald McDonald is coming, and arguments on who gets to use the bell tower as a McGriddle position have already broken out. :D

    Anyway, in case you were curious, the reason all of these politicians want to come here is that we're a shiny, profitable manufacturing plant in the Rust Belt. This sort of thing plays great during election time.

    I've been known (after a few drinks of course) to ask random Germans about their fascination with David Hasselhoff, but I've never had the chance to ask an ambassador.

    OK, if the opportunity presents itself I'll ask him. He's got two secret service looking dudes following him around, so my chances are probably pretty low.

    Well, I didn't really get to talk to him so no official answer on the Hasselhoff thing. It was interesting to hear him speak about world events and policy though. The guy reports directly to Angela Merkle, very cool.

    I spoke with the security guard some more, he's horrible at keeping secrets. He basically confirmed that Ronald McDonald is coming to my office. And when I made a crack about using the clock tower as a McGriddle position, he said that was a bad spot and suggested a different one! Anyway, we'll see if he's full of shit or not.

    MSP is on the watch list! Even jokes about that are taken seriously! I am writing the letter now, which I will send to you during your long incarceration! :D

    My brother got a letter from the feds once, because of some chemicals he ordered on the internet. He keeps saying he's going to frame it and put it on the wall.

    DAMN IT, I one-upped him again :p

    (seriously though, everyone who ordered certain things from this one site got letters from the feds, kind of scary actually)

    Columbus: Are you one of those guys who has to constantly 'one-up' everyone else?
    Tallahassee: Hell, no! I knew a guy once who was a lot worse at that than me.

    Haha, great :D

    So is Obama supposed to be coming and saying "See, this place is making money, my policies are working" or something like that?

    My dad got a call from the FBI once because he went to the bathroom too many times on a plane flight and the woman sitting next to him reported it to the feds.

    In other news, MSP, I think you just tripped every single internet alarm signal the feds have. Drop us a line when you get to the CIA's pen in Syria?

    Yeah. Think back to every election commercial you've ever seen, with a candidate standing in a factory with a hard hat, and an American flag fluttering in the background. It's a photo opportunity.

    I could easily counter any and all political ads that state: "we created jobs" with the cold hard reality of life in southern oregon. Upwards of 30% actual un/under employment.
    The stats the state and feds go by do not take into account the thousands who've exhausted all benefits (99 weeks), who can only find 16-20 hour a week part time work, have resorted to alternative ways to live and those who are off the radar due to homelessness. Most the "jobs created" are not created, but rather public sector jobs saved... yeah, those are being concidered jobs created. Politics is so sleazy.

    When you think of it. Touting having saved jobs isn't actually a bad thing either, though it's always hard to cheer for "It could have been worse!" :) The simple fact is that there is not, nor has there ever been, anything the Government can actually do to sway the economy one way or another. The sad part is, after 200 years of US history, and thousands of years of history in total, none of us can actually quite believe or accept this simple fact is true.
