One of the best comments I’ve heard lately is that America is the greatest country in the world because it can succeed despite its leaders. When we check on other countries, the first question we have to ask is: “Who are their leaders?” America’s leaders, on the other hand, can regulate, complicate, and obfuscate America’s progress, but for a variety of reasons –almost exclusive to America— she perseveres and prospers.

I think most women see a Hollywood starlet in a short skirt, and they want to mimic that look. When they then wear that short skirt, they project the image of that Hollywood starlet upon themselves. No one can tell them they don't look good, of course, and they walk around with this image of themselves. This psychological limitation is not a gender specific limiitation of course, as many men think they look good in cargo shorts and sandals. Mirrors won't tell the tale though. Most people need the distance a photo provides to see what they really look like in clothing.

I love it when politicians state that we should penalize companies for moving jobs overseas. It's a great talking point, and it gets us all fired up. We should make it illegal or tax the heck out of them for selfishly ruining our economy. What the politicians and the fired up folks never ask themselves is why did that company move over there in the first place. With the highest corporate tax rate in the world, we're making it fiscally irresponsible for some companies to stay here. If an Apple computers stayed in Cupertino, California, they would face a backlash from shareholders who complained about Apple's profit margin, and Cupertino would not be in a better position for their city council would just have more money to waste.
