Completely Random Thoughts

From my drive in to work today.... in no particular order of relevance to anything

-David Bowie is a genre-less musical genius

-Im 33 and becoming predictable

-Britt Eklund was one of the hottest actresses on the planet in her day. Why does she get so little mention as being such?

-I hate ESPN, if the Yankees, Red Sox, LA Lakers and Barry Bonds all vanished. ESPN would be left speechless. If Chase Utley played for the Mets, he'd have been cannonized by now.

-Back to politics, Tim Walberg was on again about defending our hard fought freedoms, while at the same time defending "traditional marriage". Do reactionary social conservatives not see the inherent hypocrisy, or are they all to busy cheering for the end of time.??

My favourite David Bowie album is Heroes. This album also reminds me of why Brian Eno is the most influential musician for the past 30+ years.

I still think Tim Walberg is a step in the right direction. IMHO, keeping 'big-government social conservatives' out of the White House, and perhaps the Senate, in the future is more important. If Rudy runs, which I'm sure he will, we won't have to worry about that.

Rudy and his extra marital baggae wouldnt make it out of the primaries. The GOP will end up stuck with soulless entity like Bill Frist.

Tim Walberg to me just screams sell out. Much like other alleged fiscal conservatives like Ton Delay who insisted last year that the Federal budget had been cut as much as possible, anf much like the Republicans in the early 90's who screamed up and down for term limits, and opposed them once elected.

Ill agree with what Bill said in another post. Walberg likely has zero sense in matters of global affairs and international economics. Or worse yet, has a perspective tainted by evango-fascist leanings of his conservative base.

Say what you like about Joe Schwartz "conservatism" but at least he's a realist. Walberg's brand of pie in the sky, Faith based, wishful policy making reminds me of how we got where we are now in the Middle East.....

Instead of voting for people who live in fantasy worlds because they say the "right things" about taxation, I think we need to look at the whole package.
