The Quest for FREE

May 19, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Bernie, We Heysayers are starting a quest for the mythical ‘FREE’. We are packing out packs, buying new boots and stocking up on oats and nuts. We’re going to dedicate every non-political, non-Apple moment in search of the mystical ‘FREE.” Thank you, Bernie. We have a mission. Our first plan was to start in Mexico, make it a coast […]

Exporting the blame

May 18, 2016 Jon Seliot 2

Hey Bernie, The top export from Vermont isn’t cheese. It’s blame. You know blame, Bernie. You know it well. We watched your speech. You’re becoming the champion of the angry blamers. But even children know that those who rush to attack others, those who blame early and often, and loudly, are masking their own inner faults. You have heard of […]

A 7 Rumor That Matters

May 17, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim, For the first time, we’re actually excited about an iPhone 7 rumor. It’s a fairly doubtful one for the 7, but it’s worth noting because nothing else we’ve heard makes it, or AAPL, a strong buy. Which bums us out. The rumor we’ve heard is an embedded 3D Touch home button with Touch ID. We’ve expected it for […]

We Are One!

Hey, Hillary. The key to a successful campaign is a good slogan. A straightforward one. To the point. Either original or classic, but it must be great. Slogans matters more even than your apparent likability. Thank goodness, right? So we did some research. We looked at you and the BO and your past campaigns, and we realized that derivative tripe […]

Careful, Tim, India’s a RED country

May 16, 2016 Jon Seliot 1

Hey Tim, You know homosexuality is illegal in India, right? In 2013 it became illegal again, punishable by up to 10 years in prison. But it appears only gay sex. So you’re safe as long as you’re celibate. We realize this is unsolicited advice, and it’s personal, and we apologize for that, but we considerate folks at Heysayer would recommend […]

The Law Religion of the Land

May 12, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Ted, How do you feel about the separation of church and state? You’re from Texas (and we like Texas and Texans) and Texas appears to have an interesting stipulation on the books. Even though I know you know it, I’m going to refresh your memory. Article 1, section 4 No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification […]

INTRO

May 11, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Reader, We thought we’d introduce ourselves. We’re HeysayersTM. (Yes, we’re trademarking it.) We’re a group of people with a stubborn desire to let other people know what we’re thinking. In a casual way. Because we’re casual. First off, we haven’t met you. We don’t know you personally. We don’t know anyone who knows you. We’re at least three degrees […]

What’s the Comp, Cramer?

May 8, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Cramer, Booyah. (Now I think that will be the last gratuitous booyah for a while.) We’re trying to figure out what the total compensation growth has been over the past few years. We get wage growth. We get employment cost. But meshing the two isn’t so easy. We’re going to try, because something’s definitely amiss. With benefits costs spiking […]

Praise for Apple Pay

May 8, 2016 Jon Seliot 0

Hey Tim, We love Apple Pay. It’s the best service Apple’s offered in a long time. We love the ease of use. We love that only four digits of the card are stored (because we see those). We’re happy that vendors don’t get our credit card information. I particularly love the notifications of all charges to the card, regardless of […]
