My View

Random thoughts from a warped and fevered mind...

Congratulations to Tim and Danielle Darling on the birth of their son, Hayden Daniel Darling. Hayden weighed 8lbs, 2oz. Tim is the Director of Communications for the Nashville Predators and a great guy. Welcome to Hayden, a future Predator.

Dancing is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire.

In a little known action, the Treasury Department raised the guarantee for mortgages issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two giant government mortgage lenders, to over $400 billion. That simply means that the U. S. taxpayer is on the hook for bad (read: uncollectable) mortgages that have been issued by these entities. We pay attention to the stimulus funds approved by Congress and new federal programs such as socialized medicine that is under consideration. The fact is that spending by Congress and the wasteful use of OUR money is out of control. And unfortunately, there appears to be no end in sight. Spending at these levels and failure to recognize our mistakes dooms future generations to a significantly lower standard of living. It's time for all of us to pay closer attention to the cesspool that is our federal government and the waste that is going on with impugnity.

You never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.

A new year awaits, with numerous opportunities and challenges. As this year unfolds, my wish for all of you is that this year be filled with great blessings and joys for you and all your loved ones. The challenges we will face will be difficult, but they are not insurmountable. In the face of great difficulty is when the best rise up to meet the challenges before them. My hope for each of you is that the challenges you face will bring out the very best in you.

If you were going to shoot a mime, would you use a silencer?

And that, my friends, is my view.
