I'm not sure what I'll write about this time around or the photos I'll be sharing but I'm looking forward to writing longer pieces again and hope y'all will find something interesting and, hopefully, compelling in what I have to say.
Happy New Year!
Life, liberty and the pursuit of good barbecue
Geithner's resume is impressive: Kissinger and Associates, Council on Foreign Relations, International Monetary Fund and the G30. But he likes to fly-fish, play tennis, and surf, so I think that balances him out.
Bill Richardson, another leftover from the Clinton administration (Energy Secretary) is now going to be the Commerce Secretary. Does anybody out there know what actual duties that job entails? Or Energy for that matter? Oh, I almost forgot, he's also the most important Hispanic member of the team. Remember Roberto Gonzalez? You always gotta have at least one.
The current Bush appointed Defense Secretary Robert Gates has been invited to stay on to help keep the war machine humming as the bloody occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan continue unabated. The Messiah has hinted that he may want to attack Pakistan or Iran sometime in the near future so it's probably smart to have guys like Gates around when the need arises to implement further carnage.
So far, I'd say that's some pretty impressive CHANGE.
Can't wait to see what other NEW and exciting things unfold after the Holy Anointing on January 20th.
