Too Much Health Insurance????????????

I think this signficant.

Too much health insurance?
I read this this monrning after scrolling through another blog that noted it.
I was under the impression that the problem was that some people can't afford health insurance.
This is so wrong.

No time to write this morning hope you had a great weekend.

Weekend Post

Duke did it again and my little bit of glee after the Hoya's beat them the other night was - as expected - short lived. I hope to catch the Cincinnati / Georgetown game tomorrow. The weekend again is for college basketball, some paperwork a good book and family time. If it's warm I hope to shoot some golf; it has been possible to play here this month and I have done it twice. Two cheers fro warmer than normal winters.

I will be leaving in March for a few weeks to travel to a variety of places around the globe for my job. I have not traveled overseas since my son was born but it will be necessary again at least this time.

My wife wanted to go see Brokeback Mountain this evening. I didn't. She went with a friend. I'd rather stay home and son-sit.

I like to think of myself as a fairly enlightened individual. I wonder why then I really just didn't think I could stomach this movie. What did it mean?
I love going to the movies, always have always will. Love the popcorn and chocolate mix and the five six dollar coke all mixed together. So am I a raving homophobic? We have a couple of gay friends so I just can't figure it.

It came to me eventually, it has nothing to do with any of that; it is simply that
I don't like seeing love stories of any kind unless there is a lot of action of some other kind in them, I don't like "Westerns". I don't like art films and this is a close as they come from what I hear.

If it is hilarious, clever, and fast I like it. If it is full of action and suspense I like it. I don't think that I have seen a movie that didn't fit the aforementioned criteria in a very long time.

I feel better now.

Have a nice weekend out there.

Quick One

I have been reading the BIO site recently and see it as having potential. I hope it does not become a contest among major posters for attention that the kos often seems to be. I still read the Kos mind you it just seems more often than not it is some kind of proving ground.

Sorry MJ for assuming Indiana /Iowa. Bless Duke and may the power that be fall slowly and with ease.

If anyone knows a better link manager than blogrolling let me know otherwise I am changing over to blogrolling to prevent problems should I decide to change my template.

Slippery Slopes

I don't buy into this completely. I believe we are on a very slippery slope and watching his smirking face on CNN trying to persuade does not make it any different.

Political Notio is returning to full time status in the near future.
This is a good thing I look forward to it.

The trial of SH is becoming a joke.

I hope google sticks to it's original plan.

I had a good college basketball weekend and a not so good football weekend.

I have the luxury of working from home most of this week which means spending some quality time with my son and wife.

Will be traveling quite a lot this spring so I am going to enjoy this time while it's here.

I'm holding out from changing the name of this blog to average businessman and wife.

news and Kelly Clarkson

Bin Laden on tape...we reject truce offer. Nope no truce were gonna annihilate you. Not sure what that's about. Is that guy really still alive?

Alito now qualifying his responeses. I still do not want him on the supreme court of this nation.

Wilson Pickett dies. It's someone everyday isn't it?

Kelly CLarkson won't let them use her songs for the show??

You will forgive me I was doing a three month stunt in Wisconsin at the time of the first idol and we did watch it. I've haven't seen it since but hear she has gotten pretty famous. I don't blame her.

Busy few weeks and everyone in my house is gettng sick and staying sick with sme kind of respiratory virus so I am bailing out and just doing a cop out.

Nothing else to say.

I have caught some of the hearings, on the new and on late night CNN coverage. I think the man doth talk a good game and I think we all need to be very wary of what that means.

Is this really necessary?

I admit to having an Ipod now. I have a long commute and travel some. I do conduct a lot of business from my rural home, but when driving and flying the Ipod gives me great pleasure, and I thank my wife for her insistence. Ipod compatible jeans is a little over the top for me. Maybe if I wore jeans to work it would be different.

Al Jazeera is loving this still.

When he wakes up and makes his first speech I wonder what form the claims of divinity will take.

When you find him let me know.

Great start to the new year.

Ariel Sharon is not going to survive.

But no fear as it is the will of God.

Sadly Lou Rawls passed on and Iraq had it's bloodiest day in months.

Let's keep those wire taps burning.

Great start to the new year.

At least John Stewart is hosting the Oscars.
