Talk Radio and more...

Over the past few days, I have been listening more to talk radio and become somewhat fascinated and annoyed at the same time.  While everyone has an opinion, it seems ironic that everyone also has the solution, but then I shouldn't be surprised.  While I must admit I do agree with some of the commentaries I have heard, some of the solutions have been so right winged and out there, impossible to instigate.  The upcoming elections are taking center stage and rightfully so based upon present economic conditions and as you can imagine, opinions from everyone on everything.  The one thing that seems to be consistent with all the people expressing their opinions is the fact our Congressional elected officials for the most part are all milking the system.  They are not watching their retirement dollars shrink, not concerned about their health care benefits, nor social security and how they will live after they retire from office.  If only we all could be so lucky.  Unfortunately, I do not have the funds to run for office nor most of my friends.  That doesn't mean we are not just as qualified as those in office, but we do not have the political pull to get there.  Maybe then I wouldn't have to worry about retiring one of these days or my own health care.  The system really does need to be changed, but how...  It doesn't matter whether you like Obama or not, he did not create all the mess we are in now.  I certainly would not want to be in his shoes.  But do you really think anyone else truly has a chance to beat him in 2012.  Who would truly want to step into this position now and rumor has it, the Republicans really do not want a person in that office the next 4 years just in case the economy tanks further...encouraging don't you think.  As for myself, it's business as usual and I will be watching and listening to everything.  I will only support those candidates that I feel can make a difference and I will certainly be speaking out.  That is what we all need to do, so what are you waiting for...
