Apparently now is as good a time as any to start a new business.

I really enjoyed reading this article by Nicholas Kristof.

All robotic apologies aside, I do not care about Tiger Woods. How many times do we have to see this show before we get tired of watching it? Trusted public figure does some awful stuff, goes into "rehab" and then apologizes at a news conference.
We should all spend more time looking up to the people in our life who've really helped us and stop wasting our time with celebrities and athletes.
We make these people too important.
PS-My apologies for the preachy tone of this post.

Apparently Ron Paul won the straw poll at CPAC the other day for their choice for president. The conversation on Hardball was interesting.
Buchanan's analysis is particularly good I think.
(Feel free to fast forward through the CPAC one liners if you've seen them already)

I've been thinking a lot lately about why people do crazy things. I know human beings get pushed sometimes to the brink, but I just can't understand. I can't understand what would make someone fly their plane into an IRS building.
I guess there will always be wackos, but I wish there was a way we could prevent things like this from happening. I mean...is there any way to help people like this?

The mini jobs bill moved forward today with GOP support.
Multiply the current bill by 20 and maybe then we'd start to put some workers back to work. But at least they're doing something.

Is it possible to work with the other side when they aren't interested in working with you? I'm the kind of guy who is all about working together to solve problems, but I have been frustrated with both sides and their inability to even talk to the other side.
Is bipartisanship even possible with all of the garbage out there?
Where are all the grownups?

There seems to be some serious issues with Toyota, that are impacting all of their most popular models. I couldn't help but wonder though, sure is good timing for our car industry.

Check out this research from Media Matters: How Fox’s top three shows covered the earthquake in comparison to MSNBC's top three shows. Illuminating or just eh?

Who would have thought that we'd actually get a substantive conversation out of these two. Really it's fascinating. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

When I heard about this, I honestly felt a little sick. Corporations can give unlimited amounts of money to individual candidates. It is absolutely atrocious. Clearly conservatives don't believe in "judicial activism." Oh wait a minute. They do.
