Breaking news from the NY Times

So I just got a breaking news email from the New York Times.  It reads like this:

McCain Seeks to Delay Presidential Debate

Senator John McCain said that he would temporarily suspend his presidential campaign on Thursday to return to Washington to deal with the financial crisis and the bailout package pending before Congress. Mr. McCain is asking Senator Barack Obama’s campaign and the Commission on Presidential Debates to postpone the debate scheduled for Friday night.

Hmm, I thought about this for a minute.  Yes, it is important to get this financial crysis settled.  I agree, but shouldn’t the future President of the United States be ready to balance multiple important things at once?  I mean wise people should be able to debate without preparation as they should already be well versed on their stance since they ARE RUNNING AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!

What is going to happen if we are attacked AND another finaicial crysis happends again?  Will we give John McCain time to prepare?  I do not think it works that way.

My intelligence has officially been offended beyond recognition

I just can not believe that something like this video has created by someone who is running for President of the United States. What are we being told here? Am I supposed to believe that Britney Spears and Paris Hilton are of the same class of people as a former student of both Columbia AND Harvard University? Do they have the insight and knowledge to become a Senior Lecturer in Law at University of Chicago Law School?

I don’t think so….

Why would I want to support offshore drilling instead of investment into the development of alternative energy?  We are told day in and day out that education is everything.  We are told that in order to succeed in this century that we will need to be able to compete in the high tech sector.  Is investing in training engineers to develop alternative energy not one of these goals?  Why would we spend money to drill off shore for a finite resource when we can spend the same money in research to develop better solar cells, wind and hydro-electric generators, cleaner nuclear facilities, and most of all more fuel efficient cars.  Even if gas is $5.00 per gallon, what would it matter if your car could efficiently utilize potential to kinetic energy transfer as well as solar in addition to hybrid engine technology?

If John McCain wants me to vote for him, he had better tell me how he is going to support our economy by developing reasonable paying jobs that train people to do something that a Chinese worker can not do for 1/10th the cost.  I do not want to exist in the previous millennium any longer.  IT IS TIME TO MOVE ON. 

Senator McCain — Please I ask you — BELIEVE in us, the American People to use the investment in our education to develop new technology, not to rely on antiquated ideas from yester-year and if you approve messages, try to at least tell us something positive that you plan to do.
