    "You may be correct on the value today, but you may not be correct in the future."

    -That statement may be correct today, but it may not be correct in the future.

    A lot of Presidents have been doing that for a while unfortunately.

    I was looking for copper pennies last night (as I always do) and in on of the rolls I found a wheat penny from 1912. Then a thought hit me.

    When that penny was made:
    -The Titanic sank
    -The income tax didn't exist
    -William Taft was President
    -"Commoners" weren't allowed on golf courses
    -Women wore corsets
    -Women could not vote
    -Ford Model T's were cool
    -Anthony Fokker established the presessesor to Fokker Aircraft company
    -King George V ruled England
    -My great grandmother was 9

    After all it's adventures and all the transactions over the last 102 years it finally ended up in my hand. I do love history.

    How about instead of keeping foreigners out we actually try to make college affordable. Right now it's a $40,000 to $80,000 commitment one has to make when they are the least mature.

    If the Asians and Europeans are kicking our butt then I say good for them, but instead of complaining lets compete.

    Even if Congress is dragging its feet it doesn't give him (or any President) power to legislate, and it is wrong for him to do so. If a jury is hung the judge cannot say, "If the jury won't act I will".

    The Nazis were voted into power, it wasn't a coup.

    "Radio Shack closing some 500 stores"

    I guess the 80s really did want their stores back...

    I know this will never happen, but Mark Levin a while back suggested the House should pass this resolution:

    "Whereas the president of the United States has asserted executive powers not granted to him under the United States Constitution, the United States House of Representatives hereby asserts, as an equal governing institution, that all such acts by the president of the United States are null and void. The House of Representatives further asserts that no federal department, federal official, or federal employee is authorized to appropriate any sum of taxpayer dollars in furtherance of any unconstitutional act by the president of the United States."

    Thoughts?

    "The for-profit education sector is unsurprisingly not happy with the proposals."

    Too freaking bad. I understand that higher education is expensive. I'll never say that tuition should be cheap. It's the fees and expenses that choke the life out of a student's bank account.

    Parking=$75
    Parking tickets=$40 (when there are no spots left)
    Homework=$100-$150 (this one just chaps me)
    Test materials=$50
    Books (per class)=$150 (for information that can be found on google)

    I had to drop out of an Accounting class recently because I couldn't afford the homework. I had the book, materials, and tuition paid for but on the first day I found out they needed to grab my ankles and hang me upside down again.

    "As in the Bible, give a person a fish, he has one meal, teach the person to fish, he will have fish to eat for his whole life."

    That verse doesn't mean don't give the man a fish, it just means it's better to teach him how to feed himself.

    "Why wouldn't it be private sector companies investing in the rollout of charging stations? "

    You beat me to it fx...

    I think people are misunderstanding the natural course of innovation.

    1. Idea (experimentation)
    2. Prototype
    3. Novelty
    4. Toy for the wealthy (High cost/low return)
    5. Everyman's item (Low cost/High return)

    Right now I would say we are in between the novelty and toy for wealthy with electric cars. The real money is always for the one that makes it affordable. This is how it has always worked; electricity, cars, flying, glasses, etc.

    I am ashamed that my wonderful state would do something so anti-capitalistic. Tesla should be allowed to compete, period. I just hope my guy isn't one of the old farts in Austin that want budge on the dealer system. I'll be emailing him today.
