Policies for the (other) People

September15

As some of you probably know, there’s an ongoing debate on Capital Hill (that’s Washington, DC) about whether to help homeowners facing mortgage default. On one hand, politicians generally hate people. On the other hand, people vote.

Tough call.

Speaking of people… Americans without health insurance has hit an all-time high. So… I think I get it. This theoretical sub-prime mortgage crisis is just a brilliant way to make the uninsured seem insignificant compared to the defaulted. What’s worse; untreated cancer, or eviction from a home you couldn’t afford (NOTE: this might be a trick question)?

Tough call.

Speaking of not-rich people… Thank goodness we’ve restricted personal bankruptcy so that all these sub-prime mortgage defaults can generate a robust system of economic slavery. People had felt in control of their lives for far too long.

Fortunately these folks have “Desperate House Wives” to take their minds off of their poor decision making, and feel better by glorifying adultry. What’s worse; losing your home that you could never actually afford, or the trophy wife you moved into that house after you dropped the wife that put you through medical school?

Peace to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
