Has anybody noticed that all the lefty talk about Buffet’s secretary’s tax rate actually sounds like they are arguing for a flat tax? Am I the only one amused by this?
Speaking of buffets, I’m so not cooking tonight. One of the boys is sick enough to disrupt homeschooling. The solution: a midday School House Rock! video marathon for all, to be followed later by copious amounts of wonton soup.
A lot of these School House Rock songs are unfamiliar. Lovely lady liberty, with her book of recipes? Doesn’t ring a bell, but I sure do feel transported back to the 1970’s . . .
Say that reminds me. Plenty of folks think that Obama has a good shot at winning reelection. Here’s my question. Won’t Obama just pull a Jimmy Carter and get voted out, no matter who gets the GOP nod? It seems unlikely that our economic outlook will improve much in the next year, and well, don’t we always blame the sitting president and throw him out when that happens?
This leads me to a new idea, and it’s not a good one. Who is to say that a GOP win in 2012 is a good thing? What if . . . a Republican becomes President #45. He and the GOP majority in DC do a little here and there to curtail the federal behemoth, but not enough. The economy is too hampered by debt, inflation, general over-regulation and an unrepealed health care law, and it won’t bounce back soon enough.
I’m not predicting an apocalyptic economic collapse. Just stagnation, which is problematic in a culture as impatient as ours. Then, in 2016, America could vote out both the Republican President and the Congressional GOP majority.
And we’ll end up with . . . Something Worse Than Obama.
I dunno. I think that attempting to predict the future is not good for my mental health.
Moving on to things that are good for my mental health, you probably already know this, but I’m still going to announce the good news because it feels good to do so . . . Fleecy is back!
Fleecy, Dude. You are a sight for sore eyes. Warn us before you go dark next time, pretty please?
I’ve got a new addition in my blogroll, ifn you are interested in homeschooling stuff: Redefining Stay At Home Mom. She’s pretty much a crafty ball of fire.
Speaking of the blogroll, I sure wonder how Jim Gourdie is doing. He hasn’t posted any updates lately.
Okay. I think that my stream of consciousness is all tapped out now. Later gators.
