  1. Three things:

    1) As much as I want a healthy economy, I’m delighted to finally see businesses having to deal with credit hassles the same way private citizens do; it’s about time. Maybe the business world will remember this the next time is pays legislators to craft laws and policies that don’t help ordinary people.

    2) After watching only half (the first half) of last night’s presidential “debate” and hearing the same ad hominem attacks and evasion strategies and outright lies by both candidates, I wonder why a supposedly educated American society continues to tolerate the sham of political elections and these scripted (at least the answers are scripted) media events? When will Americans learn to say enough is enough and to demand real answers to our questions? I don’t think it will ever happen because I don’t think most Americans are educated enough to know the difference between truth and propaganda techniques.

    3) I recently purchased an iPod from a store that only had a few in stock. The price of an iPod doesn’t go up when a store is low on stock. The price is the same regardless of stock. If anything, the price of an iPod goes down with time, not up. An iPod is made mostly of aluminum, which of courses is a finite natural resource. So my question is what’s the difference between iPods and gasoline? Why does the price of gasoline depend on time of day when it, like an iPod, is a product made from finite natural resources. What am I missing here?

  2. Mike,

    I’m a registered Republican, a Reagan Republican; however, as Reagan (a former Democrat) used to say about the Democratic Party, “I didn’t leave the party, the Democratic Party left me.” That’s the way I feel now about the Republican Party; it has been high-jacked by the cultural conservatives. I had a ton of respect for McCain until he put Palin on the ticket…she is clearly unqualified for the role. It was a gimmick and it’s dangerous, and clearly McCain’s judgement is questionable. He’s just pandering to the cultural conservatives.


  3. Palin’s executive experience is very impressive. If Obama had half the resume as Palin you might have a point.

  4. I only heard a few minutes of Mike’s show on Wednesday, but he read and referenced an article about the political leaders taking the blame for the economic crisis and how they create and then rail against the problem they actually cause. Does anyone know where I can read this whole article? Thanks.

  5. Charlie Reese is the person who wrote the article 545 people. You can google his name or check out Democratic

  6. Excellent! Thank you!
