Just something that came to me…

What are we “INVESTING” in???

Watching my favorite (all of them) Sunday morning news shows, I’m noticing a lot of “We need to ‘invest’ in” comments when talking about the economy, education, entitlements, etc.

Well, I’m not a rich person … matter of fact, if “middle class” is $100k~, I’m not even that, so I don’t have $$$ to “invest.” HOWEVER, I’ve only taken basic business courses in high school and didn’t make the choice to go to college, but I DO KNOW that when someone “invests,” it is in anticipation of a RETURN ON THAT INVESTMENT!

WHAT returns have we received from our “investments” in education? TARP? Stimulus? Entitlements? Solyndra?

I’m thinking Washington has re-defined ANOTHER of our wonderful country’s benefits and freedoms.


Chicken Scratchings…

Evelyn Beatrice Hall, (1868 – after 1939),[1] who wrote under the pseudonym S.G. Tallentyre, was an English writer best known for her biography of Voltaire with the title The Friends of Voltaire, which she completed in 1906.

In her biography on Voltaire, Hall wrote the phrase: “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it” — Wikipedia

Can we somehow apply this to politics … oh yeah, and Chic-Fil-A???



Stars & Stripes, bald eagle, Lady Liberty, and now … a chicken sandwich as a symbol of Freedom. Says a lot about today.


Sometimes I question my sanity, occasionally it replies!
