I love how some Dems I've talked to are already spinning it: "Well, this will surely mean inflation fears are going to take hold...that will send the market spiraling downward once again! These job numbers are actually BAD NEWS!!!"
For liberal information NPR is much more informative, and for entertainment the Garden Show is superior.
Agreed. It sounds more like an office telephone conversation than a radio show. I absolutely devour Ric Edelman's personal finance show on Saturdays, and that stuff has much more potential to be boring than politics...but Edelman knows what he's doing. This show just doesn't have any identity....it's like "soft talk". They need to get some drops or something. The only thing that makes my ears perk up is when they chuckle at each others jokes....it momentarily ceases the droning.
This is flat-out tedious. I listen to a lot of talk radio (Pacifica include), and I'm not a big Rush listener, but at least Rush knows what he's doing and has some fun (song parodies, etc). They just don't seem to know what to do or say...and if they do, then they're doing a bad job of it. The only thing they really have going for them is that they have a built-in audience...lefties...but I doubt they're going to attract much else out of that.
I don't think it's such a bad idea. In fact, I think part of the stalling is intentional....get the Dems so in a titter about having Condi testify that they'll kind of wish in the end they never pushed the issue so hard when she takes the stand. I have a lot of faith in Condi and the way she'll handle herself....kind of like "OK, you want a piece of me? Let's rumble...." in a very cutting, but civilized way.
As did my father-in-law, in 1995, he went to bed "not feeling well" and never woke up. If he had went to the hospital and obtained a bypass I think he'd still be alive today in good health.
I seem to know frightening amount of folks who had just gotten clean bills of health from doctors only to either end up dying in their sleep (uncle) or even, worse, at work (a couple of folks I knew). Very unexpected, but quiet departures...
Build a base at the grass roots level and start electing Libertarians in school boards, in city councils, then State houses and State senates. Then go on to the U.S. House and Senate, then the Presidency.
Bingo. I can find a fair amount of common ground with the libertarian philosophy (though there are portions of their platform I will probably never be convinced to support), but frankly I think they need to get some more local office holders in place before going for the full burrito.
