Quality Leadership

With our country facing the deficit of national character that we are facing is something I think about often,  It means a lot to me to be self-sufficient.  The idea that I will be taken care of by the government is laughable.  Any one who is expecting social security to come through for them is in for a rude surprise.

Here a a few links on leadership:

Glenn Beck Vs. Olberman

February 24, 2010 Leave a comment

I will admit, I used to love Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and the whole darn crew…but they have gotten really crappy lately.  They were a lot more fun when they were bashing Bush and they were right on to do it.

Lately it seems like all Olbermann does is bash Beck and have softball guests who totally agree with him and he asks questions where they he is leading like a cowboy walking in front of a horse.

A few points:

  • Olbermann complained that Beck was making $133 per ticket for a event that he was holding.  Since when is making money a crime.  Last time I checked Glenn beck was, basically an entertainer with a TV show.  Not someone that claims to be some saint.  But he does do event like Restoring Honer.
  • Olberman called Beck the “Worst Person in the world” for saying that maybe “we don’t want to evolve” now I read the speech were he said that and he was referencing our government and specifically our constitution.  I happen to agree with that, lets not evolve the one document that really made this country what it is.  You know who second to that, same guy who said retarded children were caused because women aboted the unborn child before they were born.  Beck is worse that that…I don’t think so.

Here are some great Glenn Links:



And a Beck video with the girls on the View, funny:

Why are our parks closing?

February 24, 2010 Leave a comment

I just watched a very odd segment on Glenn Beck.  In Arizona there are numerous parks that are in danger of closing, in fact two have closed in the last few days.  This is not totally surprising considering the financial mess that the country finds itself in but the problem is that even after a private business has com in and offered to run the parks(to make a profit of course).  I for one am 100% pro business and beleive that the capitol markets, if kept in cheeck with some common sense regulations will in the end turn out to be the best system.

Lets face it, one of the main causes of the housing crisis was actually the “progressive ideal” that says we all deserve to own a home…actually we don’t.

Now they want to block the parks being taken over by buisnesses.  And here are some of the downsides of lettting the parks shut down:

  • Loss of jobs
  • Destruction of expensive property
  • Loss of natural management

So what do you think?  Which is worse losing our state parks or turning them over to private business.  Lets face it though for as much as business is decried they create jobs while they also do many good things for the environment.  I will cover that in a later post.
