Rants -- March 30, 2008

RantsWelcome to the March 30, 2008 edition of Rants. We got a lot of posts submitted; I apologize for getting this edition out so late on Sunday.

Eric Thompson presents Presidential Elections posted at Why I Loathe, saying, "I know it is a late submission but I just found this carnival. Please consider this article for your carnival."

Charles H. Green presents Great Moments in Self-Regulation: Financial Planners and CFP Board posted at Trust Matters, saying, "Financial planners pretend to self regulate. But when they won't even tell you what they've done about a member who was convicted in court, who can trust them?"

Madeleine Begun Kane presents Ode To Colorado: Nanny State posted at Mad Kane's Political Madness.

NotYourDaddy presents Protectionism isn't Patriotic posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "A free market means you have to be competitive. If you can’t deliver the best value, you lose. And that’s exactly as it should be. If we want American technology to be the best in the world, then it has to be able to compete in the world marketplace."

NotYourDaddy presents Barack Obama -- Man of Mystery posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "Barack Obama has captured the imagination of the nation. He’s so wholesome, so sincere, so charismatic and charming, he almost comes off as naive. But underneath his ultra-smooth exterior, he’s obviously a very complex, and very conflicted, man."

NotYourDaddy presents Nuclear Terrorism -- Coming Soon posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "Iran has a proven track record as a world leader in the funding and training of radical Islamic terrorists. Why would anybody be gullible enough to believe that this terrorist nation is amassing all the means to build nuclear weapons “for purely industrial purposes?”"

NotYourDaddy presents Alternative Energy and the Law of Unintended Consequences posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "The environmentalist lobby has been haranguing us for years about alternative energy sources. However, every alternative energy source comes with its own set of issues. Once it’s implemented, the environmentalists turn to attack the new energy source with the same fervor with which they previously promoted it."

NotYourDaddy presents Obamanomics posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "almost seems to have become a modern cult figure, with hysterical fans fainting and squealing at his appearances, and all the frenetic excitement he’s generating among the young and ‘young at heart.’ So I decided to visit his Web site and see if I can figure out where he actually stands on some issues."

Carole G. McKay presents Hilary, Bill and Noah Webster posted at McKay Today, saying, "A candid look at how we lie to ourselves and others and the price we pay for looking the other way."

Holly Ord presents Your Sexual History, Alcohol Consumption, Clothing and Location: Reasons Why You’re to Blame for Being Raped posted at Menstrual Poetry.

Lindsey Moore presents The New Improved Hillary posted at The Super Fickle Pickle.

Jeffrey Stingerstein presents UN Chief Condemns Airing of Film, But Condones Murder of Monks in Both China and Burma posted at Disillusioned Words.

Sammy Benoit presents DEMOCRATS, STUPIDITY and CAIR- They Just Seem to Go Together posted at YID With LID.

Sammy Benoit presents Israel Rejects Visit from the Four Monkeys of the Apocalypse posted at YID With LID.

Holly Ord presents The Psychology Behind Men and Prostitutes posted at Menstrual Poetry, saying, "Why do so many men seek out prostitutes? An explanation of society and what men feel is expected of them while also battling selfish desires and sexual needs."

Raymond presents The IRS Economic Stimulus Notice Letter Is A Waste Of Taxpayer Money posted at Money Blue Book.

Raymond presents Making Fun Of Late Night Infomercials Using Hotties With Assets To Sell Get Rich Schemes posted at Money Blue Book.
