Sen. Ted Kennedy Dead

The cancer finally got him.  I'm not going to miss him.  I will say that he was dedicated.  Yes, there were some good things he brought forward.  I liked his brother better. 

RIP, dude.

Good or Bad? Education and Economy

Foreigners Attending US Grad Schools Way Down: Wake Up, Xenophobes

A very interesting perspective.  I was talking with one of my vendors/friend about this very subject of schools and why so many of the students are foreign.  We both agree that part of the issue is these students work and study hard to achieve while many within our country spend more time playing games or receiving a "free ride".  These people do not have any incentive or drive to move ahead thinking they should be handed their education, and therefore their future jobs, on a silver platter. 

What thoughts do you have on this?  Has our system failed us again?  Refer to the Idiot's Bookstore and the book, Dumbing Down Our Kids.

This was a nice piece.  Some of this is very useful.  Some I do already, others I can improve on.  Do you consider some of these options?

Health Care Bill H.R. 3200

OK, folks, if you said you could not find this bill to read, here it is: H.R. 3200

I've begun to wade through some of it and I really do not like some of the verbiage. I'm starting to wonder if some of these wacky talk show hosts are on to something. There are government orders in this. Kinda scary.

I believe we need some sort of reform, but having this monster is crazy. Health care is complicated enough already.

Anyways, you choose your side. I'll continue with my stance. Change, yes. This change, no.
