August 1st, 2008 - Friday's child is loving and giving

Hey, TGIF! First day of August, and most of us can still look forward to another month of summer fun and activities with family and friends. And…we have a weekend to get to play with our toys. What more could you ask for?
Oh, not that happy? Can’t put your finger on it, but you’re feeling a bit low?
Been watching TV, reading the papers, listening to NPR, listening to the candidates? Then stop it. Now!
There’s a whole bunch of folks hell bent on not only depressing our spirits, but depressing our economy. Despite three consecutive quarters of GDP growth, while going through a housing meltdown and severe energy inflation, the aforementioned pack is howling “Recession! Recession! Recession!” every chance they can.
The Democrats want to paint the bleakest picture of the economy in order to poison Pres. Bush’s legacy and get their folks elected (despite the fact that they’ve controlled the House and Senate (the place where the policies that got us where we are, are made) for the past two years. The Republicans are lack-luster and leaderless, and trying to figure out how to camouflage themselves as Democrats to survive the election, so they’re me-too-ing the economy down too. The Media vermin are trying to sell the only thing that sells for them…..bad news. While at the same time many of us are experiencing cognitive dissonance. Things aren’t great, but they’re not as bad as some times we’ve been through, and as most are saying. Come on……suck it up, lighten up, and get out there and spend that stimulus check!
I listened to Dr. Jerome Corsi, author of Unfit for Command, the John Kerry expose, today. He’s set to release a book on Barack Obama entitled "Obama Nation" which details Obama's communist sympathies in his early years, ties to radical Islam and social militancy among other points set to be presented. The book will be released on August 1st. The author said he began preparing this book in late 2006 because he 'knew' Obama would be the Presidential nominee for the Democrat Party. Smart guy…..this should liven things up a bit. God knows, McCain could use the cavalry coming over the hill right now.

How rational is the stock market?
Starbucks has posted a loss for the first time since it went public in 1992. Starbucks shares were up 5 percent yesterday anyway, after the company announced that it would close more stores than it would open.

Exxon Mobil reported the best quarterly profit ever for a corporation on Thursday, beating its own record, but Exxon’s shares fell 4.6 percent. (The company calculates that it pays $274,000 a minute in taxes and spends $884,000 a minute to run the business.)

On another note, Jerry Flint, a former Forbes Senior Editor, who has covered the automobile industry since 1958, suggests in the current issue that GM should sell of it’s domestic auto business, because it makes money in every other region (well almost - Europe is coming close to being profitable) So much for that supposed 100mpg car it’s had on the shelf these past fifty years…Visit his homepage at

And it was only three weeks ago that John Edwards was fielding media questions on his chances of filling the Democratic Party's vice presidential slot on Barack Obama's ticket or a potential Cabinet position in an Obama administration. On Wednesday, however, the former U.S. senator and 2004 vice presidential nominee was eager to duck the press when the questions took a tabloid turn. There really is two America's, Senator. One where you're hot, and one where you're not...

Congress aims to make college costs less costly
Yeah, you know what's gonna' happen now.......tuition's going up

Now to lighten you up for the weekend.....

Researchers are close to developing an exercise pill

Today's booming gym business could start to go bust if scientists confirm the initial promise of two performance-enhancing, fat-melting pills that mimic the physiological benefits of exercise without all the sweat.
Results published today in the journal Cell show the drugs turn ordinary mice into trim marathon champions. There should be no shortage of volunteers ready see if they do they same in humans.
Since enhancement drugs are still considered cheating in the Olympics, pro baseball, and many other competitions, Evans has already devised blood and urine tests to detect them. So in the future, elite athletes may be the only ones who still have to get sore and sweaty.
