Fashionable, but unable to tell fact from fiction

It's been a while since 1:00p has been morning to me.

All the same, I do believe that it will prove to be a good day.

The primary election went about as I had planned. Kerry wasn't my first choice, but he seemed like the most likely candidate. As for Veep, I like both Edwards and Clark. I think Clark is the more dynamic of the two, but Kerry will likely prefer Edwards' influence in the South and Midwest which kept the election close in 2000.

I didn't go for 57 or 58. Bonds are not free money, sadly. Now there's $15 million worth that'll need paying back in the near future. That's not counting what we have coming from 55 and various county measures. I would have preferred that all of them get voted down.

relsqui's father mentioned something last night about the after-effects of trickle-down economics. In essence, the taxes have just been reshuffled around so that the middle and lower classes end up getting what the rich were relieved of.

I haven't looked into it, but I believe it. I don't buy into all the alarmist measures that he was going into, but that's more or less the way the Republican economic strategy works. If it's not taxes, then it's bonds which ensure our budget is dogged by deficits well into the future and necessitate taxes.

It's just sad that it's been shown time and time again by the recession in the 80s and the malaise in the 70s that while it may be viable on paper, it simply doesn't work for the US.

relsqui is once again treating me to her prowess at the griddle and making pancakes. A new recipe this time and a new brand of uber-yumminess. So I'll end this excuse for political commentary and dash off ; )
