Burning Down the House

This video goes over the economic crisis and the events that led up to the mess we are in.

The video definitely has a political slant to it, but the facts that are brought up have been verified, re-verified, and verified again after that. You can do some independent checking yourself. This is not being posted to start some political argument about one candidate or the other. It is just a good time line of what happened and why.

Please look at it.

Burning Down the House

The only political statement I am trying to make is that Big Government failed us and they won't take responsibility. Now they are trying to fix the problem by becoming bigger and blaming everyone else.

Welcome to your new country - The United Socialist States of America!

Way to go big government. I WILL NOT re-elect anyone that voted in favor of the bailout.

Eagle Eye

Yesterday I went and saw the new movie Eagle Eye. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and would recommend it to anyone. The plot was interesting and the action was great. I did not like the part where you find out to whom the female voice belongs, but all in all it was good.

In no way is it Oscar worthy, but if you are looking for a fun movie that has some good action and a fun plot, go see it.
