Cow example shows case of good judgement
Over the past 50 years I have seen large companies go broke, smaller ones close their doors, mom and pop operations go out of business and cities, counties and even states take bankruptcy generally because of union demands or mismanagement. I attribute this to my being raised on a ranch in Texas and I compare an old cow to a “good job” and a business. A cow is a factory – she has to have energy to produce and it takes workmen to tend to her. She has a calf every year (profit), also you can milk her and get milk, butter and cheese (extra profit). It is very important to remember that the cow, while robust and healthy, is also fragile and goes through a cycle of production, and when the calf is weaned you can still milk her for a while but this is the secret to keeping her productive (fresh). If you try to milk her too much she will go dry. Therefore one must use good judgment and not over milk and cause the company to dry up. I think it is time for the working man to be reasonable and prudent, do his own negotiations, trust his skills and apply honest hard work for his employer. America depends on you because you are America, honest, strong, tried and true.
