Please Help Me Understand!!!

I’m interested in understanding different viewpoints on our country’s issues.  I’m confused about the economy and what’s happened over the last 6-9 months. Last year, under the leadership of GW Bush, our country passed some bailout of about $750 million dollars that went to major banks and businesses that were in trouble.  We’re giving help […]

Insanity in the News

Sometimes you’re just in awe at the weirdness and scope of the news.  Today is one of those days for me.  Here goes. The local Maserati dealership closed (as if every community has one) – after being open for only a few months.  I could never have predicted that, with the abounding prosperity everywhere.  I […]

Automotive Bailout Problems

As I write this, I’m watching Meet the Press that I recorded earlier.  The topic of the day is the potential bailout of the US auto industry and T. Boone Pickens’ energy plan.  And I bet I’m not the only one absolutely sick of hearing about corporate bailouts. And plenty of people who know that […]

Sharing Spin

I have a friend who sent me a link the other day to a video on the Internet.  She and I are probably on opposite ends of the political spectrum.  This video (http://www.eyeblast.tv/Public/Video.aspx?rsrcID=2036) is extremely critical of the candidate I support.  While I value her friendship and the fact that we can share things like […]

Gram’s Catholic-ness

I’ve been spending far too much time with my grandmother lately.  Here’s the situation: Grandpa can’t drive because he’s in too much pain to walk most of the time from his Rheumatoid Arthritis and other ailments.  Grandma can’t drive because her eyesight blows.  I’m glad neither of them are driving – and you should be, […]

Hillary’s Best Argument

It seems that Hillary Clinton’s best current argument for why voters should vote in favor of her is that she can win in the “big” states.  Frankly, this is (at best) just plain silly.  Right now, the voters are voting for the Democratic presidential nominee.  Her only *real* opponent is Barack Obama.  If we are […]

Wireless ALWAYS = analog?

So I was thinking the other day about cordless phones, wireless networks, cell phones, and interference.  It occurred to me that there is only one way that I know of for information to travel through air, and that is waves (radio waves, to be precise).  In addition to that, we have the cell phone companies selling […]

Why I do not support Hillary

I wish I could support Hillary Clinton for President.  Not only do I think the time has come for the USA to be governed by a woman, I think someone with her values could be very valuable to our country.  However, since she was criticised for her role (and input) in the health care reformation […]
