Taking Pleasure In Persecution

Photo by: Fadil BerishaLike most men, a beauty pageant isn't planned TV-watching. It's a program that happens to be on and often becomes background fodder while other things happen about the house.

This past Sunday, my attention tuned in briefly to generate surprise at the political questions being hurled at contestants. No question has received more attention than the one asked by celebrity blogger Perez Hilton to Miss California USA Carrie Prejean: "Vermont recently became the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage. Do you think every state should follow suit. Why or why not?"Prejean replied: "Well, I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage. And you know what, in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offence to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised and that’s how I think it should be - between a man and a woman. Thank you very much."

I.O.U.S.A.

You've heard plenty of news and stock reports about our national debt, trillions of dollars and bailouts. But what does it really all mean?

The video below is a 30-minute summary of the feature-length film I.O.U.S.A. This film examines the rapidly growing national debt and its consequences for the United States and its citizens. This isn't political rhetoric or scare tactics. This film spells out the facts in cold, hard facts.

Throughout history, the American government has found it nearly impossible to spend only what has been raised through taxes. Like an ignorant college student with a credit card, America continues to create debt which it is incapable of paying off.

Pointedly topical and consummately nonpartisan, I.O.U.S.A. drives home the message that the only time for America's financial future is now.

Why The Hate For Jon & Kate?


This is a bit odd for me to write a post about "Jon & Kate Plus Eight." The only reason I watch the show is if Kim has Netflixed a season (we don't get TLC) and I'm relaxing with her. Kim's a fan of it and has read Kate's book. But why this post?

This family lives in our neighbor-state Pennsylvania, Kim and I concluded that Jon's personality is very similar to mine, and I'm sick of all the trash about them on the web and in the blogosphere.
