For the past 6 years I have been a regular walker or runner. I’ve covered more than 4000 miles in that time. In the past years I’ve been tracking every step, taking 4.8 million steps in that year.
- I’ve changed jobs.
- I’ve continued to blog.
- I’ve published books.
All of these things are important to me as a person. For the past week or so I’ve been blurring my blog lines a little, writing a couple of technical blogs on my personal window to the universe (this blog) and some personal thinking on my professional blog (docandersen blog above). Its not that I am blurring the lines on purpose. Writing two blogs 90% of the time results frequently in cross pollination. Instead its more of a gradual realization that technology isn’t as good an answer as I thought it was.
The things that have driven me and continue to drive me are changing. I wonder now if what is happening around me is a direction I can participate in and go forward with. Everyone seems so concerned with short term fixes for everything. People are slamming our president for the ObamaCare and the job situation. Never minding that the previous president dug a deep hole for our economy and there really isn’t an effective way out of it unless we return to Clintonomics. Yes the economics of a budgetary surplus. William Jefferson Clinton as the last president to balance the American budget and produce a surplus that was ultimately the war mongers war chest. The surplus was spent and then the economy burped and we had no way to fix it quickly.
So we blame president Obama for trying to fix the things that were the result of poor planning for many years. Yes we need to work towards balancing the budget. Its time to raise taxes and do the right things. Its time to make sure everyone has healthcare in this country. It is time to remember what made America great in the first place. Let’s take care of those who cannot take care of or protect themselves.
