If anyone has any suggestions or something you want me to talk about send me an email.  I have the tendency to be opinionated so I won't let you down.  I will even use your name, yes you will be immortalized on the Internet for everyone to see.  I was thinking about it and I have a decent amount of ideas but as I move forward I might need a little help.


Also if there is anything you all want to see added to the site to make navigating easier please let me know.  I am always looking for new widgets to add to increase the entertainment for my readers.  I was concerned I would be embarrassed by putting my thoughts out there for the world to see but I have received nothing but support so anything I can do for you let me know.  The "Contact" page is only a click away.

Here is a picture of my parents dog, Reese.  Haven't made any posts about him but it is only a matter of time.  Best dog in the world.

Remember When Al Gore Claimed To Invent The Internet And Won The Presidency?? Yeah, Neither Do I...

Ok, so my current entry might not be the same as the Al Gore thing, but it got pretty close.  I was going to spend this week with my toe at the line of things I probably shouldn't complain about but this just really got to me today.  Our president is a good speaker... or so I thought.  If I had all of my speeches going across a screen to read, I could probably sound smart also.  It is only when the screen isn't there and you speak from the heart when you really see someone's true feelings.  The one thing that this president is great at, is taking credit for everything even if he really had nothing to do with it.  He uses the word "I" an awful lot.  Didn't you hear, he went in there and got Bin Laden with his bare hands and he brought us out of this economic crisis by himself.  I guess his parents never taught him the word "we" when he was growing up but some people are just like that.  I know I have to pick my battles when it comes to our president, because 4 years ago, a lot of people believed in him.  Lies can get you a long way, can't they?  Yes, once again, I am aware that all politicians lie and he was just trying to become president and he really believed in what he was saying... blah, blah, blah.  I can just hear my dad reprimanding me in my ear right now.  Maybe when he takes credit for things they should be things he really accomplished.  HEpassed a health care bill that cost $2 trillion and won't end up passing... See, that is the only thing I can think of that he actually did.  You know though, stuff like that.

I am not sure if a lot of people are aware of the speech that our wonderful president made today.  This was one that was not from a prompter but directly from his heart.  I now know why he doesn't give and impromptu speeches and is always late for everything now.  He is always talking about jobs these days and it is mostly the small businesses that are formed and end up creating the most jobs.  In the heat of the moment, he actually said that the people creating the small businesses aren't the ones who actually created them or deserve any of the credit for doing so.  Because the government created the roads and infrastructure along with the Internet, they are the ones who deserve the credit.  The small business owner that works 18 hours a day and gets 3 hours of sleep a night might have something to say about all of this.  This is just another example of how he is trying to take credit for the jobs, be a small number, that were created during his presidency.  I just really don't know how his internal filter didn't catch this one if he was such a dynamic individual.  He would be wrong if he just thought that in his head... he is REALLYwrong when he says these kinds of things out loud.  Steve Jobs, RIP, must be turning in his grave.  He is one step away from taking credit for Facebook.  There are people and lobbies out there that support small business and its owners and, let's just say, they are not pleased.  The head of one of these organizations came on CNBC today at one point and didn't really have much nice to say about our president.  Last time I checked intrade, Obama was around 56%... should be fun to check it out tomorrow.

There are very few things that can bring me off topic from my idea for the week.  Obama is one of those things and maybe Paula Deen is the other.  Speaking of which, she is going to be on Master Chef tonight... I really like that show, so I might have a review of it tomorrow and my Monday theme will have to wait a little longer.  Anyway though, when someone as high and mighty as our president gets outed like this, it is bittersweet.  I just scares me to think that this is how he thinks things are.  But I guess South Park has a little ammo for a new episode like they did with Al Gore so at least I have that to look forward to.  But hey, maybe it's just me.
