Glass Half Full or Glass Half Empty? I Don't Know, I Just Drank.

  • Stock Market back up around 17,600 or so. 
  • Gas prices under 3 bucks around the country, some places under $2/gal. 
  • Longest straight period of job growth in history,
  • Business net profit exceeding 2.2 trillion,
  • People who could never get health insurance now for first time in history, have it (until the gops destroy it, that is), 
  • Wars winding down, 
  • No terror events on American soil since 9/11, 
  • Bin Laden capped and deader than a doornail, 
  • Crime down despite cable news making mountains out of molehills, 
  • Banner year for retail. 

Thank you, President Obama. 

No thank you, worst Congress in history, passing nearly NO legislation to benefit anyone other than themselves.

No thank you again to possibly an even worse Congress in 2015, out to unravel all the good I just mentioned.

That's the consequences of NOT VOTING. 

Remember that when the breadlines start next year.

Why "Person Of Interest" Remains Cool

Person of Interest (CBS, Tuesday Nights 10 PM) rocked the house tonight. Looks like Samaritan & The Machine are going to war. January's episode 2 of the trilogy looks bleak for our heroes. The key to Samaritan's demise was revealed in this episode, however, as it calls itself a God. If you have to call yourself a God, kinda like politicians, it usually turns out your ego defeats you. The Machine, however, must win out for 2 has evolved beyond comprehension into a sentient being with a moral code and something Samaritan of the species it was designed to protect; and because we won't have a series if it doesn't win. If J J Abrams should know by the loss of Almost Human, Believe, Alcatraz, Revolution, etc. Ya keep what works. And for all it's sci-fi thriller stuff, Person Of Interest is still just a basic story about morality and how humans can transcend their primal selves.
