i think as you get older you get a reason to care.

5 years ago, i was all about the Food network. now, it's HGTV.

i also now know much more about financial planning than 5 years ago when i didn't have any money.

the kids are all right.

What is the 4th of July if not a celebration of original political ideas?

I actually agree with you on this one INDY, we need more people to think outside the box. But only including a small portion of the population is not the way to do so...

I think as you get older and accumulate the trappings of a life (having your shit together, finally), you intrinsically want to protect that. So thinking more about politics is natural as we age. We want to feel secure.

I also think that's why it seems conservatives skew old, as well. You have your morals and values set, you're probably unwilling to see them compromised, and you want to protect what you've created as far as wealth and possessions. Change is a threat.

My point is not that we should discourage originality. My point is that originality alone means nothing. It doesn't automatically make someone valid. Just because Newt has an original idea doesn't mean shit if the idea blows.

I'm still amazed that someone like him is given any serious consideration at all.

What I don't understand is the deification of Reagan. Right up there with Washington and Lincoln? I don't know about that.

They summarized 1977 as a black guy with a knife and a shirt that says "Disco" demanding your money. Seriously.
