Romney for President

Romney for President
The editors of National Review have endorsed Mitt Romney for President. Their well written analysis of the Republican Presidential hopefuls is well worth the read.

Republican YouTube Debate: Romney Wins. Big.

Republican YouTube Debate: Romney Wins. Big.
After studying all of the presidential candidate’s positions I whole heartedly support Mitt Romney, his views, positions, and character really resonate with who I am and what I would like in my President. However, when it comes to the debates I’m on pins and needles hoping he does well in getting his message out to the voters. I am pleasantly surprised over and over again how well he holds his own against fierce criticism and complicated, hard to answer questions. Go Mitt!

King Juan Carlos of Spain tells Hugo Chavez to Shut up after he insists that former Spanish president Aznar was a fascist. King Juan Carlos lived under a true fascist, Francisco Franco, and restored democracy to Spain in 1975. Chavez needs a serious history lesson before he starts spouting off again and showing how ignorant he is. Finally someone is telling Chavez what we all want to say. SHUT UP! Read the BBC Story

The majority of Americans feels that the media is biased one way or another. Now we have the hard numbers to show which way the media leans.

Reimagining the Automobile Industry by Selling the Electricity – New York Times

This is a great idea who’s time has come. Batteries are getting better and oil is getting more and more expensive. I really like the idea of a private company pioneering this technology as opposed to the government spending our tax dollars to start a new government run business.

I also like how Agassi is thinking outside the box on his business model. Subscription based services for transportation? It just might work!

Still the Best Country

20040914-americaI was recently asked, “Is the United States still the best country to
live in or should we all move to Canada?” My initial reaction was that
Canada is too cold, but after more thought I’ve decided to outline some of the reasons why
I still think the United States of America is the best country in the
world.

Now, anytime you make a statement comparing one thing to another the only definitive way to decide which is better is to first determine the areas of comparison and define priorities. For example, recently a client of mine asked whether one window manufacturer was better than another. That is a nearly impossible question to answer. Are we talking about price, thermal resistance, light transmission, aesthetics, construction quality, environmental friendliness? The list goes on and on. Both manufacturers excel in different areas, so how do you rate one above the other? It is necessary to prioritize and give specific weights to the different criteria. In the case of the windows, my client valued aesthetics and construction quality over other criteria, but another client might place more value on a window made of recycled materials with a high insulation value. It’s important to note that my view of the United States is highly subjective. I lived in Europe for a couple years, and have traveled on a limited basis in North America, the rest of my world view comes from reading, and speaking with others who have traveled.

So, why do I still love the United States? (more…)
