I've been sold!

Companies Will Enter Into an Alliance Agreement Designed to Jointly Serve Customers Moving Forward
MINNEAPOLIS, MN and DETROIT, MI, Aug 04, 2009 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Analysts International Corporation (AIC) (NASDAQ: ANLY), an information technology services company, and Netarx, LLC, a premier provider of business transforming technology solutions headquartered in Farmington Hills, MI, today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement under which Netarx will acquire substantially all the assets of AIC's value-added reseller (VAR) business and its supporting service offerings. The agreement was signed on August 4, 2009, and is effective immediately.

As part of this agreement, AIC and Netarx will enter into an alliance agreement and continue to work together to jointly serve the IT and network communication needs of clients throughout the Great Lakes region. AIC will continue to provide IT staffing and application development services throughout this region and work in partnership with Netarx to augment its services and deliver on the collaboration, data center and network communication needs of its clients.

In other words, I've been packaged and sold to another company with an office far closer than Minnesota. Is this a good thing? I don't know. Considering how close I've felt I've been skating to an hours cut/paycut/jobcut, this may be a huge blessing... or not. It's impossible to tell how this will impact our department until we (rather than the home office) has some direct contact with our new owners. I can say, I'm disappointed at losing my health insurance - it was a really good plan. What will it be replaced with (if anything)? I don't know.

It's scary, kiddies... really fucking scary.

But, I'm really trying hard to leave it up to the Lord and the Universe to work it out to my benefit. Thing's have always worked to keep me out the gutter before now, so I just have to have the faith... and try not to puke everywhere....

Wish me good tidings and an extra dose of good luck over the next week.

Wingnuttery is fun... until it becomes repetitive.

Birthers, all.

We're not laughing with you, Dears. We're definitely laughing at you... at least when we're not wondering how many more times you can repeat the same bogus, fact-free claims in public without being charged with defamation, anyway.

UPDATE: Oh, duh! Of course Taitz, et al, aren't pulling a fraud because they're die-never conservatives who are enslaved to Rush's version of the GOP... it's all of that Obama's fault, she's making a fool of herself and the Right in general!

How could I have not seen it sooner?

Belated exit question: Does anyone not think the Kenyan birth certificate was cooked up and leaked by Obama supporters, precisely because they knew Birthers would seize on it and make fools of themselves?

The answer is, "Yes, those of us not blindly partisan shills for the GOP do not think this was a brilliant plant by the President. And, Allahpundit is a giant ass."

Update (08/08/09) - See my August 8th post where I, damn it, have to apologize publically to Allahpundit.
