Feelings Over Facts

This is for all of you “give Obama a chance” people. “He won, it’s time to support your president,” is what I keep hearing from his(President Barack Obama) drones…uh…I mean, supporters. It seems like they don’t realize he has his chance. He won, didn’t he?

I’m starting to get frustrated when I use real facts, and historical evidence to prove points when debating an Obama-maniac. The talking points I get from one of these people are empty, incoherent, rambling about hope, change, and, optimism. Liberals use emotions, conservatives use their brains. On one hand, it’s refreshing to see a lot of people with optimism, but it’s frustrating to see so many people living in ignorant bliss. Just because somebody is a great speaker (when standing in front of a teleprompter), looks and acts more intelligent than the last few Presidents, and has a nice smile, doesn’t mean you should just trust that they’ll do the right thing.

Werd: Bailout - Part Two

Description

I am not a master of finance, to say the very least.  [You can find my full opinion on debt and credit here.] 

While 80% of the freshman when I was a senior at the University of Richmond in 2000 would go on to earn a major or minor degree from our Business School, I never took a single class at the School, and only ever held disdain for those that did.

It should be no coincidence, then, that almost ten years later, I am still buried underneath school loans and have seen my best entrepreneurial ideas die quick deaths due to my ignorance in all areas involving money.  My relationship to the American economy, to this point, has been adversarial: we both cared little for one another and worked towards the other’s hopeful demise.  But it is not with joy that I witness the economy’s current unhealthy state, as its disappointment only furthers a lesser state of my personal economy.  If the current American economy were to die, a part of my life would surely die with it.
