Thanks for reading, Jared!
I just want to say that I love reading all the commentary here. Honestly, I do not claim to know enough about the topic to be an expert, but I know that if it affects jobs, it affects families - bottom line. We need to find a way to make sure jobs don't end up "sailing away," thats for sure. I'd like to see some suggestions for where those rig and oil workers could be re-employed, if the moratorium is to continue. It's a shame to watch a hard worker lose his or her purpose - their feeling of pride and dedication - that they elicit from working a hard day's labor.
to you guys who read the original advocate article: you will notice brother gary moses' name mentioned, as he was recreation superintendent who oversaw funding for this disc golf course. my friends and i used to joke that brother gary moses had clones so he could be everywhere at the same time, he was the face of victoria as far as we were concerned. it was a bad joke, and i do love brother gary moses. he is a very kind person, and very active in our community. and he really is everywhere. thank you for all your contributions to our community, especially for this disc golf course. best, paul.
@anxious: No, I don't work at the Advocate, but I will be blogging regularly. I know plenty of diabetics, and I will try and find a few more places for diabetics like you to have a tasty treat! Good luck and enjoy!
Mike, let us a step back here and look at what we're dealing with, Obama or no Obama. I do believe greed has led the United States and the world to suffer. Blame who or what you like, internally or foreign, there is no scapegoat for the fact that greed is propagating itself throughout or society at a fatal rate. Credit is the product of greed. So are loans, and gambling. Businesses, in many of their ventures, can be assumed to be gambling their futures - in so much that there was at least some uncertainty as to whether the idea was sustainable based on the fluctuating markets. It is society who is at fault for their indolent abuse of their own persons - by buying products made in foreign countries, causing a recursion of debt. Our lawmakers are piddling their thumbs, and biding their seniority to quabble about mere gopher holes in the valleys of excrement that country is mired in. My advice to each one of you is to take a vote with each dollar you spend. Make it count, and think hard - you may have to alter your lifestyle a touch if you ever want the change you imagine. Governments should be designed to assist in fostering accord, and eliminating greed. If you want less taxes, then quit asking for more programs or subsidies, plain and simple. Take care of your people, they will not always get what they want - but if they get what they need, we will be far happier a nation. In general, be a good family, America. We need to treat each other with respect, and foremost, treat ourselves with respect. With hard work and genuine respect, we can all have what we need, and many of us, what we want.
