As this seemingly endless presidential campaign enters its final few weeks, here are some of my random thoughts:
- When did it stop being governmental pressure on banks to avoid "red-lining" and encourage over-extension and start being "predatory" lending practices?
- Stop talking to me about "reaching across the aisle" and "non-partisanship" garbage, John. Someone has already reached across the aisle and picked our pockets to the tune of $700 billion, including nonsense about excise tax relief for toy arrow-makers in Oregon. Porkity-pork-pork.
- If someone campaigns on the premise that he will rob Peter to pay Paul, he'll always get Paul's vote.
- Atlas Shrugged
But aside from that - the Phillies beat the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS. The Angels are out, so I need not worry about torn allegiances. The 49ers are supposed to play a football team from Philadelphia on Sunday - I hope one shows up. Gary is on call most of the weekend so I can do errands and get my drivers license picture taken.
Quote du jour:
"There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil."
