For the shallow followers of each party who listen intently to their elected officials and nod their head in agreement without the faintest intention of considering the opposition points, I say bury your head deeper.

We, as a country, society, and supposed world leader cannot continue to hold paper currency as an idol in our hands, nor can we allow a private bank such as the Federal Reserve to continue to devalue and toy with our market, nor can we stand for a government who deliberately mismanages a budget based on God knows what.

I'm a bit fed up.

Just got back from the gym, where I dropped sweat for an hour while watching multiple 'news' programs spew their rhetoric and parade their pundits. I don't care what side of the aisle you mow the lawn, our elected officials have become a laughing stock, so much so that the reverance once bestowed upon such offices has tarnished to a deep charcoal color, nearing the color of tar. In fact, that was insulting to tar. Sorry, tar - you're better than them.

Every election we hear of Hope and Change, or the Contract for America, as a panacea for us to swallow and be healed. Cheap insults at our intelligence. Have we not the mustard in our gut to seriously take on the insincere pillow talk we've been regurgitated? Well, have we?

RIP Patrick Furlong

Our friend, co-worker, and kind and gentle heart Pat left our world over this past weekend. Pat served our company for the past 3 years as a contract employee, hardly missing a day or minute to assist us in our efforts. I cannot express to you the loss we feel, but the grace in being able to know and share time with Pat during his life will never be forgotten.

Pat held a unique sense of humor, always sharing laughs and stories, and always generous with his time. He loved what he did, always tinkering with something, improving on our equipment, and being an ambassador on the road to our customers. Everywhere Pat went people embraced him. He was lovable, kind, benevolent, and most of all, a sweetheart of a man. We will miss you Pat.

Our Sales Manager Joe is home tonight, recovering from some side effects of his cancer treatments. While it is difficult to understand why such a good man is tagged with this rotten disease, it is with great admiration that I watched him today joking and laughing the way he always has. We wish you wellness, Joe, always...
