And we really wonder why we are in a financial crisis!?

Can someone please help me logically justify the rate of return on “investing” $12 billion a month on the war in Iraq? Is that really what the oil reserve in Iraq is valued at?  I assume more if you include inflation over the past 5 years.  WTF.

For more insane statitics from US Senate and Congressional Services please read this article http://usliberals.about.com/od/homelandsecurit1/a/IraqNumbers.htm

On a related topic; GM, Ford, Chrysler are on the brink of collapse and along with it millions of jobs resulting in the ripple effect.  I know Micheal Moore can be a bit out of this world at times but he brings up a valid point in his appearance on Larry King Live .  I think he couldn’t be more correct in comparing Roosevelt’s WWII era policy to Obama and our financial crisis. The need to overhaul the auto industry into a mass transit, light rail and hybrid manufacturing powerhouse is really the only solution (status quo is obviously not cutting it).  This will be a real chance for the US and so be it the world to take our next step in financial and political evolution a.k.a the Synergism Hypothesis. Could this be the end of capitalism?

Dead Fish Can’t Vote? That’s Fishism.

Yes, in Chicago a Dead Fish was registered to vote.

“There was no fraud involved,” said Nudelman, a Democrat who supports Barack Obama. “This person is a dead fish.”

The paperwork sent to a “Princess Nudelman” likely came from the “Women’s Voices, Women Vote” project, which sent nearly 1 million mailings to Illinois households in August using a list that mistakenly included some pets, said Sarah Johnson, a spokeswoman for the not-for-profit group that encourages single women to vote.

And this is why Dion shouldn’t, won’t and never will be Prime Minister

A friend of mine called Mark McKay shared this video with me today. I dont really even need to say anything else … watch the video, especially if you are Canadian!

Yes the question could have been more direct and less ambigious. however there is no way this man should be running our country at a time like this. None of the leaders inspire me to vote based on their qualities, but Dion has definitely inspired me to vote based on his serious lack of qualities.

Late night TV is good for you

I was up watching The Colbert Report last night.  It’s usually good for a few laughs, but ever so often something of use is given. Ok so not to become overly political, but the new fall TV season have yet to really dive deep into story lines, production on the follow up to “The Dark Knight” has yet to begin so this election has become a hobby of mine.

The coolest, and (claims to be) unbiased poll tracker out there is FiveThrityEight

Their mission is to “Most broadly, to accumulate and analyze polling and political data in way that is informed, accurate and attractive. Most narrowly, to give you the best possible objective assessment of the likely outcome of upcoming election”

Neat stuff.  Obama has an 89% chance of winning.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in the U.S. Election

Just a few things that came across my plate today.

The Good: This is a pretty funny flow chart of Palin’s Debate. It will put a smile on your face even if you have no interest in politics.

The Bad: I read today that only seven states have election day registration. This is showing up at the polls to register and vote.  SEVEN!  – not to mention that the states have power to regulate voting for a federal election.

The UGLY: Palin says Obama is Mr. Cooper and hanging with Terrorists. Obama releases a micro-documentry about McCain and his involvment in the 1980’s savings and loan crisis. Honestly how the heck does someone like this get nominated…
