Where jobs come from

There is a major anti-business, anti-wealth sentiment in this country. Supply-side economics is a dirty phrase. Limited government is laughable.

However, the question I have for all of these naysayers is, "Where does your job come from?" Is it created by the union? Does everybody have the right to one? How does a job come to be?"

Cutting cable update

Well, it is now September and we haven't had cable in at least 7 months (can't remember exactly when we cut it). College football season just started and, low and behold, is broadcasting tons of live games. With PlayOn or just my PC/TV, I can watch non-broadcast college football games.

Netflix streaming and the Wii are really the key to our living room experience. Digital HD broadcast and it make everything worthwhile.

PlayOn allows Hulu and other Internet content to my TV, but is a little problematic with controls on my XBMC.

I'm not sure of the future of's broadcast breadth and depth. It looks like it might be limited, but it's still pretty cool.

Roethlisberger finds Jesus?

Ben Roethlisberger has seen the error of his ways and found a path of redemption through the Lord.

Oh gimme a break.

One of the good traits of Christianity is forgiveness. Our country has generally had an impeccable history with regard to forgiving people, countries, etc. The only problem is that asses like Roethlisberger take advantage of it.

Is it possible that he got into a narcissistic tailspin and the "interception" knocked him out of it? It is possible that the Bible helped him find his way and that he's a changed person?

Sure, it's possible.

I think it's more likely that he saw his career in trouble and got some advice. The people of this country are quick to forgive. Therefore, if you can sell it (even halfway decently), the people will buy it.
