Jump Into The Fire

Sometimes a person just has to buck authority and play with fire. If you are a real professional, you won't get burned.


Sarah Palin Deconstructed

Sarah Palin resigning as Alaska's governor is going to be the worst thing that ever happened to the Republican party.

The reason is that she has become a raving lunatic and it's not good to have a lunatic as the head of your party.  She's like a spunky little girl acting all adult.  Everyone is too embarrassed to point out to her that she's a royal pain. We don't want to hurt little Sarah's feelings so we'll just smile and nod.

 Here's the analysis to prove it:

Sarah Palin's Gradual Descent Into Incoherency

Referring to her second resignation speech is the money quote.



I'm not much of a "words of wisdom" or "quote of the day" type of guy.  But every once in a while I run into a phrase that strikes me as incredibly meaningful to my life RIGHT NOW.

Merlin Mann is smart and funny. Two of the best things a person can be. I can only hope to be like him some day and come up with stuff like this.


Stop Talking and Driving

I have to agree with this article that calls for a complete ban on phoning while driving.  What is so damn important that you almost plowed into me?

Conservatism Is Failing

Conservatism is failing because it inherently looks back and embraces the past.

Conservatives think doing things the way we did 20 years ago is the best way.  We've reached a point in history where we really need to do things a new way.  The mess our country is in right now proves that we can't do things the same old way.

Conservatives bray "why go so fast on heath care". They also wondered why the Obama Administration was "going so fast" on the bank bailout, the auto bailout, and the Sotomayor confirmation. Obama has momentum and any slowdown might give the naysayers time to block important initiatives.

Republicans had 8 years to deal with these pressing issues and fiddled while Rome burned. Health care reform has been needed for the last 25 years. Hell yeah it needs to be done right away. Fer Christ's sake, people are literally dying for heath care reform.
