This is a beef cow. Its ear is tagged to assign accountability if a steak kills someone.

October 1, 2010

Franchisees are not tagged, counted or valued in Ontario.

In all legitimate commercial activities,  If you want something you better count it. Can you imagine anybody not counting money in a bank? An auto industry without ISO standards?

cow People are More important than franchisee People

  1. Each cow is carefully counted, tracked, protected from disease,  and measured from birth to slaughter. There is sufficient regulation in place to protect public food safety. It is accessible for academic study.
  2. Franchisee are increasingly butchered for their life savings (bisons on the prairies).

Why should a government care about what an industry says when the elite refuses to maintain an independent, transparent method for tracking their franchise investors success or failures? This is particularly interesting when the Canadian Franchise Association, CFA suggests that they represent both franchisors AND franchisees which begs the fundamental existential agricultural question:

What half-assed farmer doesn’t bother to count their stock even though they have all the resources in the world to do so?

Mr. Cynical Bastard: It’s all about the flesh trade being passed off as a milking operation.

How anyone can legislate when there are zero credible quantitative measures to go by, is beyond me. The 1998 stats define the term “wonky”: the CFA simply takes the numbers the IFA commissions and divides them by “10” to Canadian-ize them. * This is the basis for overseeing/ignoring 40,000 (?) Ontario familys’ life savings.

* notwithstanding the fact that the U.S. has roughly 100 times Canada’s GDP and that there were, allegedly, 5,000 new lawsuits per year in Ontario  in 1998.

It’s enough to make a wolf smile.

Listen to a good Dr: Robert Hare says you should avoid subcriminal psychopathy and, if forced to deal with animals, keep them on a very short leash. That heaviness you’re feeling comes from a close encounter with what has been traditionally defined in Western society as evil.

As the majority of smart Ontario capitalists know after 4 decades of highly-publicized fraud:

Don’t rent any unilaterally changeable business model where your success or failure is never counted by anyone (eg. don’t fly on an airplane if a publicly accountable count of accidents is suppressed by the the airline trade association).

Double that when the “experts” want to trap in an ironclad  zero-sum situation (you lose, someone else wins) created by your own life savings (sunk cost).


Imitation of business is their reality business

April 17, 2010

Franchising is an imitation of a real business.

The art is in the near-perfect staging of reality:

…they presented a more convincing picture of virtue than virtue presented of itself – just as the wax rosebud or the plastic peach seemed more perfect to the eye more what the mind thought a rosebud or a peach should be, than the imperfect original form wich it had been modelled.

William March, The Bad Seed quoted by retired UBC professor Robert Hare in his best book, Without Conscience Imitation Of Life, R.E.M. Charades, pop skill Water hyacinth, named by a poet Imitation of life. Like a koi in a frozen pond. Like a goldfish in a bowl. I don’t want to hear you cry. That’s sugarcane that tasted good. That’s cinnamon, that’s Hollywood. C’mon, c’mon no one can see you try. You want the greatest thing The greatest thing since bread came sliced. You’ve got it all, you’ve got it sized. Like a Friday fashion show teenager Freezing in the corner Trying to look like you don’t try. That’s sugarcane that tasted good. That’s cinnamon, that’s Hollywood. C’mon, c’mon no one can see you try. No one can see you cry. That sugar cane that tasted good. That freezing rain, that’s what you could. C’mon, c’mon on no one can see you cry. This sugarcane This lemonade This hurricane, I’m not afraid. C’mon, c’mon no one can see you cry. This lightning storm This tidal wave This avalanche, I’m not afraid. C’mon, c’mon no one can see me cry. That sugar cane that tasted good. That’s who you are, that’s what you could. C’mon, c’mon on no one can see you cry. That sugar cane that tasted good. That’s who you are, that’s what you could. C’mon, c’mon on no one can see you cry.
