We have an upcoming election for governor coming up in Maryland and the incumbent is the obvious best choice in my mind, but politicians in general seem to have their collective heads up their asses. Almost all of them went to help the education process by spending us into the poor house. Plus I hear a fair amount of women who are voting for a candidate because a candidate is good looking. Is this the same feminist group that wants me to respect their intellect?
Also it is amazing how the entire media and "leadership" ignore the confluence of problems that I see forthcoming which are going to hit the country like a brick in the head. We have the end of cheap oil (it's only going to go up long term), the influx of illegal immigration (if you think we just hit 300,000,000 million in this country today you didn't count everyone), the aging baby boomers (who will cause two big impacts, a strain on the health care system and a withdraw of money from the stock market), an overwhelming national debt, a rapidly growing population, an infrastructure that is in huge need of maintenance and upkeep; and the globalization of the economy.
Personally I see a world wide economic downturn in the near term future. Eventually we may get to that Star Trek or Legion of Super Hero type universe, but it is going to be a bumpy damn ride in getting there.
