Long Time... No See...

I haven't posted in a while... sorry about that. I have a new job where I spend my whole day on a computer. When I come home from work I like to spend the evening with my girls. Firing up another computer is the last thing on my mind.
I spend alot of time in my car (two hour round trip commute daily) listening to AM radio and thinking about alot. Of course now that I'm sitting in front of my laptop, I got nothing.
There's a guy on one station around here that spends his time asking callers to recall one good thing that Hillary or Obama has done that qualifies them to be the President. Of course, no one has a response. However, this guy can't seem to recall anything that McCain has done that would qualify him for this particular post. The problem seems to me that there isn't one answer. Social security seems to be a helpful program, but I've put alot of money into a system that won't be able to help me when I'm 65. Why can't I decide how best to invest my own money? I have a job that provides health care, but what about people that don't? If you don't work for a company that provides health care does that mean you shouldn't be able to see a doctor? But, if we socialize health care, won't I be paying for health care for people who abuse the system? I guess the issue is that there are some people that can't afford health care and retirement because they'd just assume someone else provide it for them, and there are some people that can't afford health care and retirement because, despite their best efforts, they don't have the same opportunities that I have.
Well, I'm ranting... I'd like to start writing again. I hope you'll start reading again. Keep checking back for more.

wow! he is back! kinda. you should use your iphone in the car during your commute (i assume there is some way to record audio on it) to record your thoughts, then quickly type them up at home or work.

Kevin,
Cool thinking. I like your comments about both quotes. Here's a quote I'll share w/ you: "We're not human beings having a spiritual experience. We're spiritual beings having a human experience." Spoken by Julie Johnson, PCUSA Staff member in Louisville at a pastors' retreat. I think it speaks for itself, but I totally agree w/ her.
