Journey in Goverment

Also an update on my visit to the DMV yesterday.

They couldn’t me my plates, for some reason.

But they need to be renewed in January, they have my brand new (design) plates & the current message plates. BOTH in the building.

So on Thursday 2022.12.01(Natalie’s Birthday, just a coincidence), I can go back to the DMV & get my 2023 plates.

please do mail me

The heavy hand of mandatory wage floor removes the opportunity for managers and owners to reward their high performing team members.It also put the tenured employees who are making the increased minimum wage currently & the floor rises to their wage for new employees.

The market rate for all parts of Nebraska isn’t the same. North Platte is paying up to $16 to start. Omaha/Lincoln isn’t starting at that rate.

The increased to inflation has shown negative effects when the CPI is high. Like the last 4 – 5 quarters.

Passing 432 is a no brainer.

I don’t know any over 18 without a valid ID. Are they working, are they receiving monthly tax reimbursements from the state?

Did they move and fail to update their address within 30 days? I’m violation of state law?

no time

At this point in time he is a know quantity.It’s up to the individual to take that’s into account.Then you have people like Mike Thomas(if that is his name) posting on Twitter & you wonder why they would say what they said.But you don’t actually wonder, cause you ain’t got time for that.

what happened was

You see what happened was.There were two organizations that brought about 53 male athletes.There was some coaches, administrations, and referees also.The team that was visiting with the same field, weather, and knew what they were doing. Performed & executed better than the non-visiting team. I think that covers sports.


The #VernonJ rides again in the #Iowa Thursday Taco Ride.

13 Time Santa Lucia Festival Champion

Another table of friends, families (two brothers), Italians, & colleagues fall to the undefeated champion.

If you weren’t here I won TWICE in MMXXII

On Friday 2022.07.22 History was made AGAIN!! The One & Only Vernon J went down to 10th & William in Omaha, Nebraska.

I had the pleasure of competing twice on that day. Once in the Adult Division (3 cannoli’s), then competed against the Celebrity Division winner as well.

The 98th Annual Santa Lucia Festival had kicked off the day before. The Festival is happening today, and tomorrow. Grab some friends and head on down there. Photos via the Santa Lucia Festival Committee’s social media page – here!

Can we solve SSA solvency?

There might be a way.

At some point in time.

No changes in benefits for people 18+.

Over the next 4 generations reduce benefits

-0 to -10 years from point in time 75% benefit, no tax reduction,

-10.00273972602 to -20 50% benefit 25% tax reduction,

-20.00273972602 to -30 25% benefit 50% tax reduction,

-30.00273972602 to -40 0% benefit 75% tax reduction.

I haven’t done the math, but it might work out? YES I have thought about it.

Do as I say

Do as I say, not as I claim to want people to do. The Distinguished Senator from District 8 hypocrisy is on display on the first day of the month.

  1. We trust doctors to use their best judgment to provide the standard of care for their patients.
  2. We are concerned because the Nebraska Medical Association has not committed to blocking an abortion ban. Dr. David Watts is a dermatologist in Omaha, and the board president of the NMA. Contact Dr. Watts and encourage him to oppose any ban on healthcare in NE.

She is asking the board to determine what’s best for members of their organization. Thanks Senator for putting this on a public forum for all to see.
