News abundance over July 4th weekend !!

Wow, there was an abundance of news this weekend. Let's take a quick look at the highlights nationally and U.S. Politicsin the sports world :

1) Coke Zero 400 - was probably the most exciting race of 2009 to date. Tony Stewart won another one in exciting fashion. I'll be honest. When he left Joe Gibbs Racing last year to form his own team, I thought he made a big mistake. He has proven me wrong. I did not think he would be competitive, but he has won races and currently leads the points standings. Kyle Busch - I've been predicting for 2 years that his wreckless driving style of swerving and blocking would eventually lead to a big wreck. Saturday night he proved me right by taking himself out, costing himself a win, and taking out a bunch of other drivers in the process. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but I fear it's only a matter of time until someone will be if he doesn't change.

2) Steve McNair - what a tragedy. Bad way to go out. Bad legacy to leave. My next comment is not gonna be popular, but it needs to be said. Wolves can be bad decisions. Guys, we need to learn from this. We need to be men of integrity 100% of the time. That means we don't make bad decisions that can lead to destruction and our families being heartbroken and betrayed. They deserve better. It's our responsibility to give them better. McNair's wife and children are the real victims here. My heart and prayers go out to them.

3) Sarah Palin - now this is the real shocker !! Sarah-Cuda announced Friday that she will not seek re-election in 2010 and is stepping down as Governor of Alaska on July 26th. The pundits are already at it. Some say she stepped down to get an early start on her 2012 presidential campaign. Some say she stepped down to help the Republican Party re-energize it's base by campaigning for GOP candidates. Still others say that she had enough of the abuse that she and her family had endured during the last year and she's done with politics. What's the truth ?? Only time will tell. Personally, I hope it doesn't turn out to be the latter and she's done. Whether you like her or not, you have to admit that she spiced up and made interesting the 2008 election.

This Thursday, I'll get down to business of what this blog is about. The topic - Cap and Trade. You'll learn what it is, who's gonna get rich off of it, and who's gonna be paying for it. Make sure you take your blood pressure medication that day.
