Happy Birthday to Me!

***I'm 52 today. Geez, I'm getting to be an old broad...

***Good news going forward. This is an interesting column by Rich Tucker. He has some really good points. This is America, full of innovation and promise. The biggest obstacle to progress is the government. Bureaucracies, meaningless, costly regulations, taxes - government intervention stifles growth and American ingenuity. If Obama and the Democrats would stop trying to "fix" the economy by putting us ever deeper in debt and just get out of the way, the American people could pull us out of this mess. In his arrogance, though, Obama thinks he's the only one who can save us.

“Strong governments are, by definition, monopolies and monopolies always grow complacent, stagnant and self-serving,” he writes. “They also fall for the perpetual fallacy that they can make business work more efficiently if they plan it rather than allow and encourage it to evolve.” Look no further than the “recovery summer,” promised by the Obama administration.

***Rafael Nadal wins US Open and completes Grand Slam.

***Oh my gosh. Lighting via dog poo.

***Reasons to hope Christine O'Donnell topples Mike Castle today.

***Well THIS is sad. 11 million people watched the MTV awards. I'm sorry, but what a bunch of freaks! The music kids listen to today is *so* bad. I have to listen to it when I'm at the gym. I know our parents said the same thing about our music back in the day, but I think today's pop music has really hit a new low. The combination of bad lyrics and worse voices is just unlistenable, in my opinion.

***Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.  ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

***Have a great day!

  1. Jen, I agree. Eleven million watched the MTV Awards? That's more than tennis, Sprint Cup, NFL (remember all NFL games are regionalised, so ratings don't reflect the number who watched each game), that I told friends at the dance class I attend I was not going to do the parade routine (the adults will do it this year) set to Stefani Germanotta.

    And remember, MTV is more powerful than Fox News to this Administration.

    Cheers, Jennifer. Have a wonderful birthday.
