Lessons

Not a traditional blog - theories and information I've accrued about various subjects through minimal to extensive research.

  1. Musings on the US Election

    Romney vs. Obama. It was a question of realism against the idealism. Moral good vs. evil? Id heard it described as that. It was a debate that raged on and on until the results were declared, questioned (mainly by Karl Rove), re-counted and re-counted again. Mitt Romney was the business savvy, rich Republican who focused heavily on kick-starting America and reuniting under a banner of singularity.
