Some Thoughts on a New Direction

Oddly enough, I started thinking about some of the following things while watching Tag.

Tag is NOT what you'd expect. It's both a funny movie, and a poignant reminder of the passage of time, and how our relationships to each other transcend our own lives. I highly recommend you see it with people you want to have a closer relationship with.

This link is to both a look at the past history of conservative thought, and some practical suggestions for the future. I particularly like his idea about setting up an organization to lobby for the interests of younger Adult Americans. The AARP has swung its gigantic clout around for too long on budget matters. It's time for those whose LIVES will be affected by the skewing of the budget towards the concerns of the elderly to step up, and organize for their benefit.

Big Government just does not GET IT.  NYC is still operating as though there were no alternatives to putting up with their combination of over involvement in the lives of the middle class, and under involvement in the crimes, lack of sanitation, and just general chaos that the protected classes inflict on those middle classes.

Will those Old Guys, those Privileged People whose continued involvement in public affairs should NOT be subsidized by the American Taxpayer, get off the stage? If we're going to pay people to retire, shouldn't they - you know - retire? Rather than use that income as a way of underwriting their Next Great Career?

I know I sound like a broken record, but - Voter Fraud?

Other than all of that, it's been a great trip. I've spent time with family, celebrated my son's 40th birthday, and enjoyed it all - well, except for the weather, which is cold, wet, and not pretty. But, it does make me grateful for the fact that all of the extended family have a roof over their heads.
