You know what - I'm liking this particular issue.  We currently elect our president through proxies; we elect who will represent and vote for us instead of actually voting for us.  So why not allow the people to vote?  Let our votes count!  That means politicians have to pay attention to EVERY state, and not just Florida, Ohio, Virginia, and a couple of other swing states.

 I know I'd posted something about the deficit in the past, and it, plus the debt ceiling, was something that I wasn't totally clear on.  Now at least I'm pretty damn knowledgeable about the debut ceiling (which is just about paying bills that we've already accumulated).  If you're interested in learning more, my favorite podcast duo from +Stuff You Should Know handle this topic very well, and very bipartisan.

If you get a chance, listen to their other stuff as well.  Everything from finance to zombies to disasters.  It's all good, and it's all there!

Not only congratulations to Michigan, but also thank you to the (Reagan appointed) judge for totally throwing the Regnarus study to the curb.

I might as well put this out here for #TBT - this is me, circa 1985. See +Tim Lukasik, I told you my hair was bigger! :)

You ever have so much to do that you actually get a little paralyzed and don't know where to start?  Yeah, well, welcome to my Monday.
