MOST LIKELY NOT A GOOD IDEA

I don't know enough about the politics of the Middle East to defend anyone. Just as an observation though it is most likely not wise to aim rockets at Israel. Another observation I made over the weekend that it not a good idea to trifle with writers of the New York Times even if you are a princess from Camelot. Whether this person is chosen as a replacement by the NY Governor will say much to me about whether politics is about qualifications or ability to fund raise and obvious favorite of a" Higher Up."

Linda yep it's all about the fund-raising capabilities on that one. At least she's honest enough to say she'd never run for the office but will take it if it's handed to her

I am among those who remember tears running down my face while she and her now deceased brother saluted during the funeral of their father. Cannot help but also bring to mind that President Bush when coming into office believed his focus would be on education-wrong. Just hope the new President does not have to refocus-Linda

Also probably not a good idea for Chrysler to take out 3 ads in newspapers thanking the American people estimated cost $200,000.00 per ad in light of the recent "bridge loans". How many worker's salaries might that have paid?? Linda

Just to keep the "probably not a good idea thing" somewhat even-seems the UAW has a golf course and a lakeside resort in Michigan available for their members Both of these worth in the millions. This is not good news to the taxpayers when today was the first release day for the money that polls show most people were not in favor of giving. Maybe in keeping with the execs selling their jets they will sell those too. Might not though as understand the Mi. real estate market has tanked as bad as it has in Fl. SIGH... Linda

As I age seem to get more negative daily. Good news for GM today in that GMAC their finance arm qualified as a Bank Holding company thus eligible for more billions in TARP funds In light of this it is probably not a good idea for the UAW to fight in court to the tune of huge sums the county in MI. which tries to raise taxes on their multimillion dollar lakefront resort reserved for union officials. These taxes in large part help support the schools. Sigh..... Linda
