How do, everyone! Happy Tuesday evening to you, one and all. As far as the anagram goes, it has nothing to do with this blog, sorry, I just played a whole dollar on the Mega, that’s all that’s about. Onto the news!
I am looking everywhere, and i mean everywhere, for results on the 20th congressional district special election today. And i can’t find diddly. Looked at cnn and msnbc and they had nothing. Well they had a bunch of stories about this being an important vote for the Democrats, the main point of those stories being that this will be scene as some type of referendum on the Presidents policies to date. They at least gave that much. Fox had nothing on it. Nothing. They had stories on How Former Gov. Sebelius owed $7,000 in taxes, a blog about kicking the UAW to the curb, or something to that effect, and a story about Sen. Reid changing his tune on cap and trade.
Curious, seeing how a) John McCain also planned a cap and trade program and b) everything I’ve read says that cap and trade is going through as originally planned.
But nothing on the important 20th N.Y. congressional district race between Scott Murphy and Jim Tedisco. I’ll tweet it if and when I find it, and it’ll show up on this page soon after.
WAIT! I JUST FOUND IT! If you want the info on the news as it becomes available, click here. Looks like Jim Tedisco has a slight lead at this point, with 15% of the vote in. Good Luck to Dem. Hopeful Scott Murphy!
That’s about it from me. I have a number of things to do, and unfortunately I really don’t have the time to do a lot here right now. Well, maybe a quick statement or two about things in my world.
Being poor and out of works sucks, but it does give you plenty of free time. So, I hear you ask, why aren’t you blogging more? Why are you in fact blogging less, and writing less when you blog? Because, I have been busy filling out paperwork for hours a day looking for work. Hours each day. My ass is sore from sitting in front of this computer as much as I do. Also, because i have a second blog on examiner.com, and I have been playing catchup on local Staten island politics trying to get up to speed for the Staten island examiner blog. I more than know my way around the national scene, or at least i have a clearer view of it, having been looking at it and talking about it constantly for ages. The local scene? Not so much, and I have my hands full getting my shit together for that blog.
But I am doing my best, if you would like to read my new blog, I’ll be putting a link to it here soon. I have three stories up at this point, and I’m going now to toss out a fourth one. I may write every day for it, I may only write 5 or 6 days a week, I’m not certain at this point. I’m not exactly happy with my writing there so far either. I need to tighten it up a bit. I am used to using as many words as I see fit, but in this blog, there is a general cutoff at 400 words. The first instance of the word “the” in this sentence is word #530 here.
Like I said, I need to tighten things up a bit. It’ll be interesting seeing what effect it’ll have on my writing.
A second video, a few quotes, and I am done.
A report from earlier this evening, from bloomberg tv, on the g-20 meeting going on this week.
That’s it for me. Later!
Today’s Nuggets, by Rene Descartes, via Wikiquote: Of all things, good sense is the most fairly distributed: everyone thinks he is so well supplied with it that even those who are the hardest to satisfy in every other respect never desire more of it than they already have.
So blind is the curiosity by which mortals are possessed, that they often conduct their minds along unexplored routes, having no reason to hope for success, but merely being willing to risk the experiment of finding whether the truth they seek lies there.
