Education is a good thing

Am I the only who noticed an article change from "wall street cheers rate cut" at 8am to "wall street sours on rate cut" at 9am? Yup, all these economists know exactly what's going on and what to do about it.

Very disappointed in the debate last night. I suppose you have to get your main points across each time b/c the average American isn't watching all the debates (which is a little sad---maybe we could get rid of the ridiculous two party system if there were more involvement from "main street", myself included). Anyway, it was just a repeating of everything that's been said before. I think I'm gonna turn the last one into a drinking game----one shot every time Obama says "fundamental" or McCain says "my friends". Let me help ya out....there are many synonyms for fundamental: "basic, elementary, essential, indispensable, inherent, primary, radical, ultimate, underlying". And I AM NOT your friend. Knock it off with the catch phrase and find something substantive to say, or at least original. All the little informal polls this morning are saying Obama won the debate, but I don't think so, I think it was a draw.

If you missed the debates, it's not too late to catch up! Transcripts available online:
First McCain-Obama Debate
Biden-Palin Debate
Second McCain-Obama Debate

And since no one is capable of telling "the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth", you should definitely read the analysis of all the debates at and see where both candidates were misleading:
Fact Checking Debate #1
Fact Checking Biden-Palin Debate
Fact Checking Debate #2

We are super into the debates! Still not nearly as knowledgeable as we should be, though! I was thinking about having a debate party, inviting neighbors over to take notes on the issues and talk about the debate afterwards. But then I'd have to clean........
