America, America

*
Hot Chick * Bailout and the "free marketers" * The Seasons

Election 2008

Campaign button reportedly seen at the Republican National Convention: "Hoosiers for the Hot Chick"! Suggestions: Pennsylvanians for the Lipsticked Pit Bull, Montanans for the Moose Hunter. The permutations can keep a campaign button maker busy. In the meantime, the "Hot Chick" is being kept under wraps, protected from the media in case she slips up during questions and her shallowness is revealed.

In 2004, during one of his debates with John Kerry, President Bush was caught by TV camera (of Fox News no less) with a mysterious bulge in his suit jacket. There were comments that he wore an electronic device to aid him. The McCain team is not likely to try something like that when Sarah Palin debates Joe Biden at Washington University, St. Louis,on October 2nd but I wouldn't bet on it. McCain staffers include Rovians, and they wrote the book on dirty tricks.

With 40 days to go, the candidates have pulled out all the stops. Their speeches contain lies and half-truths. Expediency rules. But issues matter; think about them before you decide.

The Bailout

NY Times

  • “This administration is asking for a $700 billion blank check to be put in the hands of Henry Paulson, a guy who totally missed this, and has been wrong about almost everything,” said Dean Baker, co-director of the liberal Center for Economic and Policy Research in Washington. “It’s almost amazing they can do this with a straight face. There is clearly skepticism and anger at the idea that we’d give this money to these guys, no questions asked.”

Autumn

September will soon be behind us. The season of falling leaves has begun. The change in weather is quite noticeable. For many Americans it is an uneasy time. The economy is in shambles and it has affected them, especially those who have lost their jobs and their homes. Others have been caught in the domino effect. No reprieve is in sight.

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh so mellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain so yellow
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a young and a callow fellow
Try to remember and if you remember
Then follow--follow, oh-oh
