>I had to refrain from throwing my cup of coffee at the television this morning, as I watched one Republican, one Independent and two democrats debate on Meet the Press with David Gregory. As a side note, I must give credit where credit is due…I was very disappointed to hear that Gregory was the permanent replacement to the late Tim Russert. The Gregory that I was familiar with, was the very liberal NBC/MSNBC reporter that often showed his bias while covering the previous Bush administration. I must say however, that he has done a very decent job as moderator of Meet The Press. He has shown me the ability to ask tough questions to both sides of the aisle. Today was no exception, as his panel debated the recent passing of the Senate HealthCarebill.
>Two days before our country celebrates our Veterans, the Iranians continue to taunt President Obama, making him look like a weak leader of a once mighty nation. Perhaps the Iranians are taking notes from the North Korean leaders. After campaigning on a strong foreign policy, particularly in Afghanistan, ten months into his presidency, Obama has displayed anything but a strong foreign policy. After completing his World Apology anti-Bush tour, apologizing to Europe and other nations for the United States being a superpower, veep Biden was right, “Obama will be tested.” In just the past few months, while Obama and the democratic congress have been distracted by the economic issues at home. The focus has almost entirely been on passing their Universal HealthCare with Cap and Trade as the proverbial global icing on the cake. All the while, North Korea is testing missiles, Iran is building nuclear weapons, Russia is supplying Nuclear weapons, China could care less (as long as their economy keeps growing and the natives do not get restless), and Afghanistan has become complete and utter chaos.
>”There is no practice more dangerous than that of borrowing money; for when money can be had in this way, repayment is seldom thought of in time, the interest becomes a loss, exertions to raise it by dent of industry cease, it comes easy and is spent freely, and many things (are) indulged in that would never be thought of if [they were] to be purchased by the sweat of the brow.”
