I am still waiting to have something intelligent to say. I have been in a fog for several days, with no inspiration. I have been struggling to get a handle on the direction the country seems to be going. Some of the mysteries that elude me are (1) a full and enlightened point of view about deflation, inflation and hyper-inflation; (2) why we are still having an argument about the birth certificate issue, when it is apparent that he has successfully avoided that question; (3) why all the people in Obama’s Cabinet appear to be Clinton retreads and are receiving political favors; (4) why the prominent Republican leaders are frightened of Sarah Palin to the extent that they publicly demean and diminish her; (5) why we don’t value capitalism; (6) why we can’t say Merry Christmas in some areas of the country; (7) why people don’t see that SOME liberals are SOME of the most closed-minded people on the planet. This list goes on and on. To entertain ourselves and take our minds off the serious issues, consider this–Who will replace Alan Colmes?
