Random Thoughts After a Long Dry Spell

OK, so it's been almost 2 months since I've posted anything on here.  That says a lot all by itself.  My travel schedule has been challenging to say the least.

Since the first of the year I've been to Kentucky, Nebraska, San Antonio, Central Texas, Alabama and now back to Nebraska.  Next week is Tennessee.  I need a break from it but it doesn't look like one is coming any time soon.

Don't you find the following story hilarious?

Obama to sign order for fiscal commission Thursday

It is all about political image -- nothing to do about seriously tackling the debt.  Do you suppose he really thinks we're that stupid?

Below is a good one --

Texas takes legal steps to stop EPA from regulating GHGs under CAA

The ABC News story is slanted to indicate that it's because Texas is the biggest producer of GHG's.  I don't know where they get their information but this list puts Texas in the middle.  Hmmm -- I think they need to look at the East and West Coast -- it is automobiles that cause the problem (California had over 32 million registered in 2005).  Texas just keeps them rolling with oil & gas production (think refineries).  The oil & gas production to fuel vehicles throughout the states is the only thing keeping Texas out of the top of the rankings in cleanest.  Picture wind power

The best thing that has happened for GHGs recently is the week-long shut-down of D.C. because of snow.  Kept the hot air in their high-rent townhouses instead of on the floor of the House and Senate.

Then there's the stimulus bill.  Crazy.  The reason I haven't been posting is because I've been building a business and creating jobs.  Tell 'em to send us our money back from D.C. and we'll take care of jobs and stimulating the economy.  At least we get results.  That would probably help the debt situation too.

Life is good.  Oh, and all that travel -- just stimulating the economy.  Thank you, Southwest Airlines!
