This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Obama At House Republican Retreat In Baltimore: FULL VIDEO, TEXT
Obama At House Republican Retreat In Baltimore: FULL VIDEO, TEXT:
"The problem is, I couldn't find credible economists who would back up the claims that you just made."

Its funny because every time I hear a proposal by a Republican it sounds like this to me:

"And we should sprinkle fairy dust on ducks and launch them to the moon to bring back cheese, to create jobs for the American people, promote freedom in the Middle East and protect our citizens from terrorists."

Which in this instance was... across the board tax cuts to create jobs...

AIG Loses Exec, Wins TARP Comp Ruling - Regulatory,Legislative and Tax Issues - Life and Health Insurance News
AIG Loses Exec, Wins TARP Comp Ruling - Regulatory,Legislative and Tax Issues - Life and Health Insurance News:
"Anastasia Kelly, vice chairman for legal, human resources, corporate affairs and corporate communications at AIG, New York, resigned from her post effective Dec. 30. She began working for AIG in 2006.

Kelly resigned for “good reason” under the terms of AIG’s executive severance plan 'based on the reduction in her base salary that was mandated by the Special Master for Executive Compensation for TARP Recipients,' the company says in a statement, referring to the compensation restrictions that the federal government has imposed on the top 100 AIG employees.

The government is applying the restrictions to AIG and other companies that have received large amounts of financial assistance from the federal government."

A little entitlement without accountability? Seriously, an executive that works at a company that nearly went kaput except for the fact that the company's failure would have had a devastating cascade effect on the rest of the economy feels entitled to a salary greater than half a million dollars.

I deserve a world that makes more sense...

Man v. Nature
VATICAN CITY — The Vatican newspaper and radio station have called the film "Avatar" simplistic, and criticized it for flirting with modern doctrines that promote the worship of nature as a substitute for religion.

Lately, I've been wondering if part of our inability to see the natural world as valuable and worth preserving comes from our modern religious notions that put mankind in both roles as creation and creator? Where people once used to worship the natural world, we have now taken all that we used to see as divine about nature and attributed those qualities to a person. We have closed the loop, putting ourselves and our own wishes, represented by human deities, above the natural world.
