Quick Political Observations

Excuse the shortness of this, but “real quick”, I want to capture some good articles as the country struggles under the weight of the economy, both domestic and global, and gears up for a heady election.

From recent WSJ and IBD editions

Great article on where the money goes for gas profits
Great article on Obama’s tendency to claim is he like Clinton, and why he is not
ditto, from Chicago Tribune
ditto, from Baltimore Sun

Great article on Economic Growth of 50s and 60s, and how today is different

Great “out” article on GM granting sub prime loans

My dear husband will be so happy I finally started creating links to articles I want to review – now we can toss out (recycle) all these newspapers that are lying around….

and one more addition to this from Ben Stein’s paradoxical quote of the day:

“Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured… but not everyone must prove they are a citizen.”
Now add this, “Many of those who refuse, or are unable, to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.”
Think about it when you vote in November !
