Debate Deconstructed

I don’t like watching the debates. I DO NOT believe that debates matter as much as most pundits have been stating lately. I still find it hard to believe that here we are roughly three weeks from the presidential election and there are still so many “undecided” voters. Where have they been? Both Obama and Romney are pretty well known commodities so why the indecision? The real question should be why we put so much reliability and emphasis on a bunch of people who cannot make up their minds.

Occupy This

I have been forwarded secret documents from Massachusetts Senatorial candidate and former Obama advisor Elizabeth Warren’s plan for the “occupy” movement.  You may recall she took credit for the movement,

“I created much of the intellectual foundation for what they do.  I support what they do.”

The documents that came into my possession show the process or “intellectual foundation” for how the Occupy Wall Street movement decided what to occupy.

That didn’t work since Big Bird and Company are billionaires…
