I know that conservatives are going to hate Obama regardless of what he does. There’s nothing that can be done about that. Obama can make the country 100 times better to live in and they’d hate him for it. I am not going to debate that with conservatives cause that’s what they do. I gave Bush a shot, I gave him a lot of shots actually… I thought he was good for the job of dealing with 9/11. Fail. I thought he might be telling the truth about Iraq. Fail. I even thought maybe a businessman might be able to run the country better than a politician money-wise, boy can that boy prove me wrong. I don’t expect the same sort of opportunity given to Obama from the other side.
I believe Cains’ theory. Now to say that I believe it doesn’t necessarily put me on the same line as some Cainsians. During the 50’s and 60’s Cainsians thought that they could control the market with the theory and I don’t think that is particularly true. I think that what Cains is saying was that IF the market isn’t able to correct itself that the government can step in and fill in for what the market cannot do itself. This I think is the basis of what Cains said and I think is a very true theory.
I recently have gotten into eHow. For those that don’t know, eHow is a site in which you write up an article about how to do something, and post it. But it doesn’t end there, you get a cut of all the advertising that eHow gets from your article so it becomes a potential money maker. Though this wasn’t what got me really, I mean I do want money and right now I am struggling financially, but ultimately, I am a writer and the format they have created somehow makes it akin to an internet magazine.
With only a few days left of the reign of Bush, I thought I would take a few moments to reflect on his rule over this country. It has actually been an interesting eight years to be sure. I mean yeah I would trade this president for any other in recent history, but I did learn a great deal from Bush all the same.
I recently found another little toy for my website. You may have noticed it on the right side of my posts, it is a little dragon. This is for a new website called dragonadopters.com that allows you to grow a dragon from an egg on up. Your dragon generates resources which you can then use to create items that help it gain more resources much like any RPG out there.
Bean Sprouts is a new restaurant here in Madison that was designed with children in mind. In this iteration of a Kid’s restaurant, the developers went with a different approach to what places like McDonald’s. They wanted to create a place for kids that had healthy food that would somehow get kids to eat their veggies whether they knew it or not, often pureeing the vegetables and mixing it in the sauces so that it couldn’t be detected. With this in mind, we wanted to take my daughter there for quite some time but haven’t had the chance. That is until this weekend.
Anybody who reads my blog fairly regularly realizes that when it comes to politics that I tend to lean to the left fairly strongly. So it is odd to me that I am here blogging about a subject in which I apparently am being conservative on. Because honestly when it comes to all these bailouts, I just don’t believe they are the best of ideas, and somehow Democrats seem to love the idea. Even though I understand that if too many of these companies begin to fall, our economy is in a world of trouble, I can’t help but think that the money is being handed out with little thought and little responsibility.
