COWBOY POETRY BY H. FRED LIESE Fred Liese makes his home at the edge of Black Coulee near Turner, Montana. Raised on the Big Flat, he finds plenty of “inspiration” in the people and things around him every day, and Fred’s brand of entertainment has earned him a large following throughout the US and Canada.

True Conservation

There’s horsepower tucked beneath the hood He bats the breeze unruly He knows this big old open road He puts miles behind his dually.

I’ll repeat it now at eighty Take the same amount of miles It’s a fuel use reduction I’ve used it in my trials.

A constant spray of fossil fuel And this diesel’s great design It’s propelled on down the asphalt It’s like a dog on turpentine.

Now carefully, I calculate Conservation’s not a crime There is a factor, I’ll include It’s the engine’s running time.

Then basic colors, left to right, They burst into his view Dancing oh so radically Guess what, they’re red and blue.

A running engine gulps the fuel A rig that’s parked does not An early shut off’s mighty fine Save you dollars on the spot.

Behold, the trooper’s question “Is this where the race is?” There’s no need for introduction They’re on a first name basis.

The running time has been reduced Thirty minutes, more or less The savings are significant Amazement, you’ll express.”

The look upon the lawman’s face It was clear as crystal A chill factor’s on the rise It’s hotter than a pistol.

He gave a closing statement It etched his epitaph He stated to the officer, “You’re challenged some in math.”

A lame excuse had come to sprout It bloomed into a treasure Excessive speed can be explained It’s a fuel saving measure.

The trooper peered in to the rig His question checked the flow “Does that seatbelt work?” He said, “I guess, … I just don’t know.”

“From my ranch, I will depart At sixty is my speed A hundred miles I will go More fuel is what I need.

Consider Fred and Wilma. They are anxious to become the owners of a prestigious house. Naturally, they are both positively bubbling over with excitement. Wilma, in particular, can barely restrain her enthusiasm for the home of her dreams. However, she has the financial brain of the couple and wants to make the best possible choice for mortgage financing. She must choose between a 15 year mortgage at 5% and a 30 year mortgage at 5.5%. In either case, they will borrow $100,000, pay the same in closing costs and neither mortgage note has a prepayment penalty. A quick analysis of their situation reveals that their monthly payment on the 15 year mortgage (principal and interest only) will be $791. Over the course of the mortgage they will pay $42,343 in interest. Of course, that interest is deductible. Let’s assume that Fred and Wilma will be in the 25% tax bracket for the next 30 years. That means, after-tax, the interest costs them $31,757. Their total after tax payments will be $131,756. Interest on debt sure adds up over time doesn’t it? The 30 year mortgage results in monthly payments of $568. Total interest payments will be a whopping $104,404. But, thanks to the deduction Uncle Sam gives them, the after tax-cost of the interest is “only” $78,303 making their total after tax payments equal to $178,303. The 30 year mortgage gives them payments that are lower by $223 but it costs them $46,547 more, after-tax. One answer would be to take the sure thing, borrow for 15 years and run. But, consider the flexibility of the 30 year mortgage. If they were to invest the $223 per month in common stocks that returned 6%, after tax, for 15 years they would have over $65,177. The balance due on their 30 year mortgage after 15 years is about $69,490. Within the next 8 months, they will actually have more saved than their balance due on their mortgage. The key to this strategy is Fred and Wilma must actually save the $223 each and every month. If they don’t, they may have been better off with the “forced savings” imposed by the 15 year mortgage. Investing involves risk and you may incur a profit or a loss. The examples provided are hypothetical and do not suggest or guarantee particular rates of return for any investment. The examples do not include transaction costs and tax considerations that would reduce an investor’s return. How about these three alternative strategies that take advantage of the inherent flexibility of a 30 year mortgage with no prepayment penalty. If Fred and Wilma make 13 payments every year, starting in the first year, the extra $567.79 will reduce their after-tax interest cost to $63,478 and pay off the mortgage about 5 years ahead of schedule. As an alternative, they might pay the next month’s principal along with each payment. For example, with their first payment, they would also pay the $110 in principal that would otherwise have been due on their second payment. Every month they would pay a little more in extra principal. This strategy results in aftertax interest costs of $44,529 and a pay-off in year 18, a little over 13 years ahead of schedule. A simpler alternative would be to send a flat amount along with each month’s mortgage payment. Sending $100 per month would reduce their after-tax interest cost to $51,990 and pay off the mortgage about 8 years early. Each of these alternatives requires discipline. If one does not have the discipline to actually send the mortgage lender the additional funds then the forced savings of the 15 year mortgage might be the best bet. Of course, this brief article is no substitute for a careful consideration of all of the advantages and disadvantages of this matter in light of your unique personal circumstances. Before implementing any significant tax or financial planning strategy, contact your financial planner, attorney or tax advisor as appropriate.

HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU’RE OLD George Phillips, an elderly man from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked, “Is someone in your house?” He said, “No, but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.” Then the police dispatcher said, “All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available.” George said, “Okay.” He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again. “Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don’t have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both. The dogs are eating them right now.” And he hung up. Within five minutes, six police cars, a SWAT team, a paramedic, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips’ residence and caught the burglars red-handed. One of the policemen said to George, “I thought you said that you’d shot them!” George said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!” Don’t mess with old people.

elcome, friends and neighbors, as the annual Montana Angus Association Tour returns to North Central Montana for 2011. The three day tour begins September 21st and runs through September 23rd. The North Central Montana Angus Association (NCMTAA), headquartered in Havre, hosts this year’s tour with multiple stops around the Hi-Line Community. The 2003 Montana Angus Tour was the last tour hosted by NCMTAA and boasted over 280 in attendance; based on this year’s pre-registrations, the 2011 should be just as successful. The Montana Angus Association, sponsor of this year’s tour, consists of seven different regional associations, with each district handling the responsibility of hosting the yearly tour. The annual Angus tour is unique in the manner it brings new eyes to the area, seeing our strengths and encouraging us to strengthen our “weaknesses”. The 2011 tour kicks off with the Golf Scramble Tee Off at 10 a.m. at Prairie Farms Golf Course on Wednesday, September 21, and is open to anyone who wants to get in an entertaining day of golfing. Yvonne Hinman has been helping to organize the golf scramble, sponsored by Boehringer-Ingelheim Vet Medica, Inc. Registration and guided tours follow at 2 p.m. that same day at the Northern Montana Experiment Station. Afternoon tours taking place at Top TOUR STOPS:

He Said . . . She Said

These quotable quotes and catch-phrases are used and repeated, but seldom fully understood. Enjoy reading this Triciaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trader exclusive where we delve into the background and origins of some commonly referenced lines in American lingo.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can motivate by fear. And you can motivate by reward. But both of these methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self-motivation.â&#x20AC;? WHO SAID IT: Homer Rice (b. Kentucky, 1927) Homer Rice was a high school, collegiate and professional football coach, and a college athletic director. While he worked for several institutions in his career, his longest stint as athletic director lasted from 1980 until 1997 for Georgia Tech, whose team the Yellow Jackets experienced paramount success under his oversight.1 He retired from that position with many honors bestowed upon him. CONTEXT: Homer Rice, true to his leadership and motivational style, developed the acclaimed Total Person Concept in the 1980s and used it at Georgia Tech to mold a generation of athletes who excelled in the classroom, on the field and in life. It has served as the model for more than 170 schools around the country and is the basis of the NCAA â&#x20AC;&#x153;CHAMPSâ&#x20AC;? program.2 Rice is one of a handful of living individuals to have a trophy named in his honorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Homer Rice Awardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which was established â&#x20AC;&#x153;to honor the athletics director or conference commissioner who most contributes to exemplary service to college athletics.â&#x20AC;?2 References: 1.

Three terms in the Montana legislature listening to politicians seduce voters through a microphone has honed my ability to interpret what they mean mostly by ignoring what they say. It’s a gift. Unfortunately, this skill wasn’t fully developed in my second legislative session when I listened to two separate groups of dairy farmers call each other dirty, rotten, bottom feeding, scum suckers needing state regulation. I had always held dairy farmers in high esteem and I knew one group had to be lying, but I couldn’t figure out which one was. (Public hearings bring out the best in people.) Here is how I apply this talent today. Thursday evening, the trophy wife and I were motoring to Utah for Saturday’s challenging Mid-Mountain Marathon over three ski areas in Park City. Thursday was also President Obama’s big “American Jobs Act” presentation before a joint session of Congress, so rather than television we tuned in his riveting address on National Public Radio (NPR). (I hate listening to NPR because their announcers whisper in soft snuggly voices so as to give the impression they are of elite blue blood ancestry.) Using my aforementioned interpretive skill of decoding political speech, I will translate and condense the “American Jobs Act” into my more understandable “Ralph Act.” For the sake of brevity I will ignore the ludicrous portions of the jobs act such as creating jobs by paying people not to work (extending unemployment benefits). If the president believes this will stimulate even one job, he is skipping across the threshold into the political fantasyland with Jimmy Carter. In one sentence, the “American Jobs Act” is a shrunken version of Stimulus One and 447 billion dollars will be given to the president’s most loyal followers with the debt dumped on our grandchildren. Forget the claim this wealth redistribution program will be “paid for with budget cuts” as there are no cuts, but only possible reductions in future increased federal spending. Our national debt will grow regardless. Stimulus One was a dismal failure, so the president and the state run media hope they can convince the voters doing less of it as Stimulus Two, will magically be a huge success. Don’t be fooled. President Obama is a devout follower of Keynesian economics. It isn’t coincidence the recipients of Stimulus Two dollars are loyal contributors to the president’s political party. Ten cents of every stimulus dollar generously donated by your grandchildren will end up in President Obama’s personal campaign war chest or that of his party. To prove my point, I will use Keynesian logic to create my jobs plan called the “Ralph Act”. Rather than a joint session of Congress, here is how I would explain my solution before a joint session of Laurel’s Fat Jack’s Tap Room. (Other than lacking the reciprocal receipt of campaign contributions, the “Ralph Act” works the same as the “American Jobs Act”). Here we go. “My fellow Americans, according to census data there are 440,049 Americans named Ralph. I do hereby propose we take the 447 billion dollars of the ‘American Jobs Act’ and divide it equally between the Ralphs. It then becomes the patriotic duty of each Ralph to spend every penny of their personal $1,015,795.97 windfall. Ralph’s appetite for jet skis, snow mobiles, sports cars, storage sheds and cosmetic surgery will thus stimulate the economy and create jobs. (It won’t be until Ralph’s last will and testament is read that his grandchildren will discover that in addition to a storage shed full of Grandpa Ralph’s junk he called ‘infrastructure’, they also inherited a $1,015,795.97 debt.) Pass it now! Thanks for listening and may God bless America.” The bottom line is the government cannot create jobs in the private sector, yet they have unlimited capabilities to destroy them. For example, President Obama’s May 6, 2010 off-shore drilling moratorium has eliminated hundreds of thousands of jobs all while spiking the price of fuel. Just like expanding government, more Keynesian economic stimulus is not the solution, it is the problem. Washington needs to get out of the gate and let people who understand free market capitalism rebuild the economy of our powerful American republic.
