Responsibility

My kids have asked what the word means, and my best definition is this: Doing the right thing even when it’s hard, or owning the consequences.

Our economy is a wreck, says Mrs. Obvious, and I’m scared. I don’t think a bailout will solve anything. I don’t think punishments will solve anything. And for all I can see, the natural consequences would be painfully suffered by all.

So what do we do? I wish for a way to pull through this without government intervention, considering government intervention may well have contributed to the problem in the first place. Dave Ramsey came up with a three step common sense solution to recommend to our elected officials. What do you think?

2008 Presidential Race

I usually try to stay out of the political blogging arena, but that certainly doesn’t mean I lack an opinion on this whole thing. I’ve been following all of the candidates closely from the start of this race, and my, what a long race its been — and now a close one, too.

So I figured its time to throw in my two cents as to why I support Mitt Romney. Yes, Mitt Romney. No, it’s not our shared religion or his looks that win this female vote. Continue reading “2008 Presidential Race”

Ron Paul is Magneto??

I was watching the republican debates a few weeks ago thinking, gee, Ron Paul sure looks familiar. When I realized why, I could hardly stop snickering. A quick search on google revealed I wasn’t the only one to notice the uncanny resemblance, but I didn’t find any great photos to support the argument. If I were a mutant, I know my super power would probably have something to do with photoshop — and now is the time to use it.

Disclaimer: This is NOT an endorsement for or against Ron Paul — though I have run into a few spam-happy Ron Paul fans who just may be evil mutants. I just couldn’t help myself.

I will bring you hope, old friend. And I ask only one thing in return: don't get in my way.

Fallen from Crace

My dad believes the media is biased against Republicans, conservatives, and religious people in general. I personally feel that the media moguls — regardless of their network — are less concerned with honest problem solving than they are with high ratings and targeted adspace. And nothing draws interest like a good old fashioned brawl. It’s not a conspiracy, it’s capitalism. But it’s not why I’m blogging tonight. I’m not typically the type to pick on anyone for typos or misspellings, but I just found this headline amusing:

Discraced Rep. Bob Ney resigns

How very embarrassing 🙂
