Demagoguery is the last refuge of the spineless politician willing to do anything to win the next election.
I may not care for the Tea Party, but this rang so true to me I had to post it. Something needs to be done about the deficit, and it needs to be very drastic. A complete reboot of the Social Security system is a good start, followed by some reduced military spending, with perhaps a dash of frugality here and there. Gosh, this concept of not spending money is hard…
Never despise small beginnings, and don’t belittle your own accomplishments. Remember them and use them as inspiration as you go on to the next thing. When you venture outside your comfort zone, wherever the starting point may be, it’s kind of a big deal.
An inspiration for you all on a rainy day here in St. Helena. I’m resting up and writing my Spring Break posts. I’m gonna miss my rig here in California; I forgot what it feels like to have a full-sized keyboard, speakers, and LCD display. I wish I could pack this entire setup and bring it home with me, but my room doesn’t have enough room! (Oh the irony.)
