i like to start my day with cleaning out the google reader as best as i can. a few lucky souls get links emailed directly to them ;) but the rest of you get to read my fascinating and scintillating prose :) these are a few links i found interesting:
bush signs law creating 'copywrite czar'- but since it protects 'intellectual property rights' i suppose it's apropos he didn't realize he was signing it.
as if poor sarah palin didn't have enough ethics scandals to lie about- her house, and apparently much of wasilla, has been found to be part of a larger cronyism scandal. yep- she and todd doled out favors- and jobs to the folks who gave her campaign money. and yet, she still tries to distance herself from stevens. sigh. she isn't even good at being a corrupt politician.
something that no one is asking obama or mccain- are you going to rebalance the imperial presidency with the other 2 branches of government? america has had enough of the reagan/cheney doctrine of the president is emperor of the world.
the last articles deal with food. americans have never really had a shortage before. well, since we export much of our foodstuffs- we should look to food shortages at the grocery store. it is more important than ever to learn subsistance living skills. trust me- things are going to get worse before they get better and anyone with a pot and some dirt can grow some food.
dear mr. next prez- food, food, food
record numbers of people looking for food
demand up for free/reduced school lunches
if this country goes bellyup and bankrupt- there won't be the social programs safety nets. let that one sink in for a moment and think about hordes of starving folks looking for food. think about it in our nice, safe suburban nests.
