Random thoughts from a warped and fevered mind...
The default of the debt by the emirate of Dubai portends a very dangerous global financial picture. Dubai has spent untold billions creating a middle Eatern paradise, and now is having trouble paying their debt. Many countries, the United States included, are like individuals that have lived far beyond their means. The only way they can pay their debt is for the financial sun, moon, and stars to align perfectly. This event should be a warning to all of us that the financial world is perilous and we should pay close attention to what is transpiring.
A friend asked me if I was an ambivalent person. I told them "yes and no."
The news this past week that leaked e-mails from scientists at East Anglia University in England showing that data confirming global warming were falsified has dealt a mortal blow to the claim that humans are increasing global temperatures. This "science" has seemed to be contrived, and the certainty that temperatures were increasing due to human activity was taken as gospel by many. The fact that so called scientists have faked the data to justify their political ends points to the fact that we should take these outrageous claims with a grain of salt. Follow the money on this one. Many of those who espoused this "science", such as Al Gore, were positioned to make a lot of money by getting companies and nations to comply with a scheme that was an outright lie.
I believe you should live each day as if it were your last. That's why I don't do laundry.
This holiday season, we are reminded of those who are less fortunate, and many open their hearts and wallets to assist their neighbor. The economic pain that many feel continues long after the holiday season, and the needs are still there after the attention dies down. Many contribute dollars, time, and effort to help their fellow man and make our community a better place. Thank you. Remember that these needs don't stop once the holidays are over.
I bet living in a nudist colony takes all the fun out of Halloween.
And that, my friends, is my view.
