The Robin Hood Army In Pakistan

Taking food that would otherwise be thrown out, and feeding those who would otherwise go without food.

Raising Cash With Dog Kissing Booth

Animals can be very friendly and loveable.  What a better way to raise money, than to put some of those cute animals in the booth, and let the public pay for their affection.  Hope for an adoption, as well.

Hanging On ‘Til Next Pay Day

It can be rough trying to make ends meet between paychecks.  Many in America and across the world have probably felt like this at some point.

Trends.  More important than the moment.

Hope and change has been going downhill for a very long time.

Compromise Enters Presidential Vocabulary

Fresh Off Midterm “Shellacking,” President Takes Responsibility for Voter Frustration, Concedes Agenda Will Have to Change

He did not swallow hard enough on Bush tax cuts or cap and trade.  But to his benefit, he can see the writing on the wall.  Start working across the aisle like he proclaimed in  campaign speeches ad nauseum, or pay the piper at the polls. 

John Boehner, Republican likely to become House Leader, has already started laying down the ground rules. 

Boehner pledged that Republicans will use their new House majority to seek a “smaller, less costly, and more accountable government.” He said he hoped Mr. Obama would join them.

Let’s see how long that takes.

2010 Elections Signal It Is Time For Change

Many voters are hoping the results of the mid-term elections will bring some fresh faces and positive change to America.  Looks like the hope and change promised by the victors in 2006, did not quite come to fruition with what America wanted or needed.  According to Rasmussen,  67% Say America Not Better Off Than It Was Five Years AgoOur only hope is real change.  Chicago Sun Times. 

… A politician who campaigned against cynicism in politics cynically used the nation’s economic predicament to advance liberal political causes.

The result has been a train wreck: A health-care plan that is increasing insurance costs, prompting companies to look at dropping coverage for employees, and hampering employee tax-free and health-savings accounts for medical spending. A combination of Federal Reserve moves and regulatory reform that was supposed to rein in Wall Street is putting free bank checking for the middle class on the road to extinction. A stimulus package promising to keep unemployment below 8 percent left 14 million unemployed and the jobless rate at 9.6 percent. And, by the way, housing prices are showing signs of weakness again, and economists fear that they could end up being below the already depressed levels of 2009.

Such is what the nation has reaped from Obamanomics.

That is probably in large part why 65% Favor Getting Rid of Entire Congress and Starting Over.  Rasmussen.

Will the mid-term elections bring representatives into the equation that can spearhead beneficial policies for the country, and undo some of the major disasters invoked by those in office so far?  It’s time.
