President Obama and the Auto Industry

I will admit that I am not a big one for economics.  I took macro and micro in college but that was 25 years ago or so.  Still, I have to say that I just listened to President Obama and his take on the auto industry.   I understand how Obama may feel that General… Continue reading President Obama and the Auto Industry

Special Election Tuesday

No, I do not live in NY’s 20th Congressional District.  I do, though, watch major television stations that cover the 20th.  Normally, this would not bother me as I find it intriguing that I live close enough to Pennsylvania that I would get ads for their elections on television, close enough to the 20th that… Continue reading Special Election Tuesday

Fad Diets – Ways to Spot

I have tried, in my lifetime, many different types of diets.  I have found, with age and through trial and error, that diets themselves do not usually work.  Healthy eating habits and exercise help a body to be at its optimum weight and strength for the life that body leads.     Fortunately, this means… Continue reading Fad Diets – Ways to Spot
