We had a beautiful day in the redwoods and on the coast yesterday. When I get home I'll post a few photos of the giant redwoods and the Pt. Reyes lighthouse.
After a day of hiking and touring we were too tired to go to a movie theater, but instead rented a DVD and watched "What Happens in Vegas" in our suite.
We also watched the news and it appears Congress is going to pass this massive bail out measure like the Capitol is on fire. The speed with which this is being done and the stupidity of many things in the bill is reminiscent of last September when the last bailout bill was done. And we all know how that turned out.
I'll say it again, we are simply burdening our children and grandchildren with a huge debt that will saddle them with obligations they cannot possibly pay. It is immoral, but everyone wants a quick fix and like most quick fixes this one will cost more in the end.
Stimulation is one thing, pork and projects that serve only small constituencies is quite another. Bailing out states is going to set a precedent that will haunt this country far into the future, but we all want everything now. We'll see how this turns out, but I am convinced it won't be good.
