Girls On The Run Junior Achievement – 3rd Grade


Some people have asked me some questions about the White House and St. Petersburg Times PolitiFact links on my blog. The story is this, during the ‘08 campaign, I found out how little I had paid attention to the timeline of events in the White House. I tried to jump into the game late and take a more critical eye at exactly what the former President Bush had done in his time in office. I came across 8 years worth of material and realized how impossible it was going to be to play catch-up.

I’ve been a loyal E.R. fan since my freshman year of college in 1994. Year-in, year-out my wife and I return to the series. We love “24.” I’ve been hooked on M*A*S*H reruns, Seainfeld, Friends, etc. I know the White House isn’t going to be nearly as fun, but I just don’t want to end up so out of touch the next time the election season rolls around. I’m not saying I didn’t have a basic understanding of what was happening, but I didn’t have it from the former President’s perspective and I think these two websites, checked about once a week/month, may round-out the news services that I read, too.

I pray for our nation, leaders, military service people, and all people in government. Jobs in the public eye are very challenging and yet, like it or not, there will always be some level of government in order for there to be peace and prosperity. I pray for patriotism, determination, compassion, foresight, and strength to be bestowed upon our country’s leaders. The U.S.A. is an awesome place to live! I’ve traveled the world on the internet and I’ve yet to see a place where an “average” guy like me can live as well as I do. Thank you, God, for the U.S.A!
