Whine & Jeez

Some quick predictions about Obama’s “State of the Union” speech tonight…

There’ll be plenty of WHINE:

  • I inherited massive debt from you know who
  • I inherited a really poor economy
  • I inherited four trillion dollars in debt
  • I inherited two unpaid for wars
  • You should pay no attention to the massive debt that I have incurred
  • It would be a lot worse if I hadn’t done what I did (try and prove otherwise)
  • 9 out of 10 economists agree with me (I ask the ones in the White House every day – it’s really 10 of 10, but I wanted to make it real)

Earth Day Plus 40

Last year I wrote a three part series on Earth Day. Part 1 addressed my role working as a government employee in the environmental field while balancing my environmentalism with conservatism. In Part 2 I tackled some of the issues surrounding alternative energy and why the energy solution is not easy or cheap. I finished with Part 3 with a blast of the media and the misinformation that they spread as facts about the environment.
