"I want to stress that I'm totally against drilling for new oil. That is unless I decide it's OK, in which case I'll stand firm that I'm totally against being for it...but I'm still for it. Dammit! What the hell...I'm still the decider, right???"
And that's the way it is. (but only for 6 more months) WOO WHOOO!

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all.
One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is Good.
It is joy, peace , love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:
"Which wolf wins?"
The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."
Food for thought...

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. employers unexpectedly cut jobs in February at the steepest rate in nearly five years, a second straight month of employment losses that heightened fears the world's largest economy has skidded into recession.
"The question appears no longer to be are we going into a recession but how long and deep it will be," said economist Joel Naroff of Naroff Economic Advisors Inc in Holland, Pennsylvania.
The Labor Department on Friday said 63,000 nonfarm jobs were eliminated on top of an upwardly revised loss of 22,000 in January, sharply contrary to Wall Street economists' forecasts that 25,000 positions would be added in February. For the rest of this story:

Nancy Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax on Retirement Income. This woman is a nut case! You aren't going to believe this.
Boy, are we in trouble... This woman is frightening.]
" We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest."
When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied :
"We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long ways to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as 'Americans'."
Now that your dander's up read the real deal.

I heard an interesting radio debate the other day, about how the US would react in response to aggression, taking into consideration the difference in land masses. A country like Israel, pound for pound, can hold their own with just about any country in the world, despite their size. Over many years the US has nominated itself as "the world's top cop". We insert ourselves pretty much anywhere we deem necessary, or I would say in some cases, not necessary. If the tables were turned and it was us that were on the receiving end of an aggressive country, how would we react? Let's also say that on a comparative scale, we were the little guy. There is no doubt in my mind that we would fight as hard, or harder, than we did when fighting to become a nation. So, maybe it's time to rethink the way we do business in other's business.
Make no mistake, I'm 100% for protecting the US and having a shared involvement in world affairs. I'm not in favor of destroying an infrastructure, then spending billions using our "apology though rebuild" policy.
