The new year is upon us and with it the stock market has broken 9000. There is some hope yet. Macworld is this month and so is CES. I think we will see electronics that are at or below $100 due to the economy. Steve Jobs will not be at Macworld, nor will Apple which is causing quite a stir among the Apple faithful. Some are thinking the rumors of Jobs’ health may be true. I just think Apple showed all if it’s new toys before the holidays, so why bother with Macworld this year. Leo Leporte will be speaking at Macworld which will be interesting…he has asked John C. Devorak to come on stage with him.

Barack Obama gets sworn in on the 20th of this month. He has promised another stimulus package…the details have yet to be revealed, so the jury is still out on if that will be a good thing or not. I’m looking forward to 2009 and hope it proves to be a good year and that we all get to keep our jobs.

This will be my last politically related blog.  I am disappointed in the outcome of the Presidential election.  The Democratic party had more money and were more technologically savy than their Republican counterparts.  The only thing we have to do now is wait and see if we become the Socialists that Mr. Obama proposes.  The stock market took a huge dive and dropped almost 500 points after last nights outcome.

Those who voted I’m proud of you, those who did not, I am ashamed and you lost the right to complain about whatever happens next.

Shaeen vs Sununu

One of the most controversial elections in the state of NH is that of Senate between Jeanne Shaheen and John Sununu.  Shaheen is looking to appeal to the democrats……Sununu just doesn’t care.  He has been kicking Shaheen in the teeth with his ads on television.  Exposing how she voted for Unions, voted for a State income tax, was responsible for creating the State Wide Property tax we now have.

Shaheen’s response to these ads are to run ads saying that Sununu voted with president bush for the $700 Billion bailout.  Ummm Every democrat voted for it the first time and almost every republican voted against it.  The second time around everyone voted for the bailout.  Still a mistake but hey, why not try to use it so they can get to the Senate.

November 4th is coming soon and I will be staying up until the last vote is counted and the winner is declared.  I just hope it is not a debacle like some elections of years past where votes need to be re-counted.  Hey if someone got to the voting machines, what is it going to matter unless they do a manual hand recount.  We shouldn’t be using the electronic voting machines anyway……they are so easily rigged.

This year’s presidential election is going to come down to this:  Who can get the most people out to vote?  Based on the number of fliers I have been receiving in my mailbox, the Democrats are really quite worried.  I have not yet had a Republican knock on my door asking me to get out and vote, but have been woken up numerous times by Democrats wanting me to vote for Obama/Biden.  Commercials indicating that (republican) candidates vote with Bush X% of the time try to get people to think that Democrats NEVER voted with Bush at all…ever!  Democrats voted first to pass the Bailout fiasco…Republicans were against it.  Democrats voted with Bush about Iraq as well, now they are complaining about it.  Come on, suck it up and deal with it and stop complaining.

For me the decision about who is going to get my vote in the White House, is who is most qualified.  There is just something about Obama that I don’t trust.  Biden I just don’t like at all.  Maybe it is because both of them are lawyers.  Nobody likes Lawyers and who wants them running the country.  I don’t.  McCain and Palin are not lawyers and never purported to be ones.  They are just plain honest (as honest as any politician is) people who want to make a change and a difference.  People I have spoken to are concerned that McCain is too old.  And others are concerned that Obama is too young.  If McCain dies Palin takes over (the first woman president).  If Obama gets assassinated (there has already been an attempt) then Biden is president.  Who do we want running the country?  Biden, a blowhard and a proven liar.  Or Palin a basic unknown but has proven that she can lead by being the Governor or Alaska.

You decide, but no matter who you vote for, get out and Vote Tuesday!

Local Elections

It’s almost time to vote and I don’t know about you but I keep getting multiple fliers deriding one candidate or another or praising one or the other.  But one campaign sticks to mind.  That of the opponents of Jeanne Shaheen.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am not voting for this scumbag piece of work.  She makes Tony Soprano look like a school kid.  As long as it was lining her pockets,  Jeanne Shaheen voted for it.  She voted for Unions that knowingly discriminated agains women.  As Governor she attempted to implement a State Sales tax of 2.5%.  Kind of defeats the motto “Live Free Or Die”.  No, Jeanne Shaheen is not getting my vote in November.  She does not have any of NH’s ideals or morals and is simply a crook.

The November election is almost upon us.  With the choices for President being Barak Obama or John McCain, we are seeing more and more ads on TV and on people’s lawns.  Tensions rise, as McCain drops out of the race in Michigan and started to focus on other states.  I’m voting for McCain and do hope that he wins.

Many are complaining about the economy and government.  The only way we are going to produce a change is to actually get out there and vote in November.  If you haven’t registered before, that’s OK…you can register on the day of the election.  Get out and vote.  If you don’t, then I don’t want to hear you complain.  You loose that right when you choose not to take part in democracy.

The senate passed the $700 billion bailout bill today, sweetened with tax cuts for big business and the middle class. The house is next for the bill which they want passed by Friday. Lawmakers feel this will stop a deep recession and stave off fears of another depression.
