Here's some passing opinions floating around in my head.

Charity/VA Hospital:
Sure a swank, progressive, modern, and economically attractive Biomedical district would be nice. But it's not funded, the city needs health care 3 years ago, and it would demolish an otherwise ok neighborhood (though the area along Tulane Ave can still be leveled). I can see the arguments both sides are making though.

Big 3 Bailout:
Impose fuel economy restrictions sooner, give them their little loan, move on. Too bad congress dropped the ball now President notsolameducker is taking care of it. Though these idiots deserve to go under, they have a few million people and other industries hostage. We need to invent new things to produce.

Economic Stimulus:
Conservatives complaining about a balanced budget during a major recession is stupid. Driving up a huge deficit while the economy is prosperous is just as stupid. One Trillion on infrastructure (not just roads) is way more appealing than bailing out some huge companies. Of course huge contractors would benefit a lot, ah well.

Obama's Cabinet:
I'm a centralist, he's a centralist, let's make out! If you wanted change change then you should have voted 3rd party. Obama and the Clintons are democrats so, why so suprised? Obama is idealistic, but not stupid. Sorry far left.


Seems like the local bloggers are having some Christmas Video Wars. Those posts have links to others.

I counter with some youtube poop.



Don't forget to vote this Saturday!

The main, well only, item on my ballot is the 2nd Congressional District election.

Here's the choices:

Anh "Joseph" Cao:
Definitely my favored candidate. Sure he's republican, but he's progressive on immigration reform. His background is interesting, well educated, and backed by a major party (which is usually a bad thing to me). For a better article click here.

William J. Jefferson

Gregory W. Kahn:
Libertarians are fun and I agree on a few of their stances, but the overall concept still falls flat. Wacky Centralists like me can't get too into them since they are pretty much anarchists with the capitalism. Hell the guy doesn't even have a website, how unhip can a candidate of a hip 3rd party be?

Malik Rahim
Definitely has the nicest website, however to the chagrin of all the silly liberals out there, he's a fringe candidate. Even uttering BLACK PANTHER is political suicide in closet racist Louisiana. No chance of winning. I know elections are not a horse race, but there should be a degree of cost benefit analysis. If he magically wins I won't mind.

I'm voting for the little Vietnamese guy. But if you want an endorsement.
