Observations on Recent Events
I spent most of today trying to catch up on what has been happening in the news since Election Day. I haven’t watched the news because I have been vacationing and I had custody of my daughter for most of the last week. Below is my synopsis of some recent events:
- Colorado and Washington legalizing marijuana for recreational use – I support this and on the surface this is good news. There is bad news and I will explain that later.
- Petraeusgate – Former CIA Director David Petraeus resigned following a much-publicized sex scandal. My campaign could use publicity like that. I am not below admitting that I can use the sex.
- Israel vs. Hamas and the Palestinians – I have received heat for what I am about to say in the past, but it bears repeating. The United States should not get involved in the conflict until the Canadian dilemma is settled. Canadian spies like William Shatner, Celine Dion, and Justin Bieber infiltrating and sabotaging the Great American Entertainment Industry must be deported and American entertainment must be restored to its greatness.
- Hostess Closing Down – This is bad news on many levels. I blame the marketing team for the folding of the company. While it is easy to blame the management for being overpaid or the unions for wanting too much, I blame the marketing team for undervaluing their products. I would have sold Twinkees at 40% higher than the suggested retail price. They were at least that much better than Little Debbie’s. Legalizing marijuana just isn’t the same withoout munching on Twinkees or Ho-Ho’s.
Tonight is my last night in Virginia Beach. I head to my parents’ home in Washington, DC tomorrow for Thanksgiving week and head home Friday afternoon.
