With the economic down turn quickly being felts by many the good folks at Hormel seem to be cashing in with that lovable meat like substance they call spam.

Some highlights from the story I found to be just great.

  1. “Even as consumers are cutting back on all sorts of goods, Spam is among a select group of thrifty grocery items that are selling steadily.”
  2. Because it is vacuum-sealed in a can and does not require refrigeration, Spam can last for years. Hormel says “it’s like meat with a pause button.”
  3. This one needs to be listed twice! “it’s like meat with a pause button.”

Some of ol Ronnie’s gems

“Entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States.”
“I don’t believe in a government that protects us from ourselves.”

“The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”

“There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.”

“To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last–but eat you he will.”

Ronald Reagan (1911 – 2004)
