I'm not really a "The Glass is Half Full" or "The Glass is Half Empty" type of fella.
I'm more of a, "The beaker apparently contains a substance that is currently in the liquid phase of matter and seems to occupy 50% of the available container volume." type of guy.
...and as more news of our nation's economy retracting emerged this week, I wonder how the optimist v pessimist point of views would respond to such news. Then I turned on the news and found out.
FoxNews: "OBAMA IS KILLING IS THE ECONOMY"
(oh, and he's a Muslim and will personally collect your guns and Bibles)
CNN: "REPUBLICANS PUT US CLOSE TO ECONOMIC COLLAPSE"
(blame the cigar-smoking bankers and guns are bad, K?)
MSNBC: Didn't report anything. Rachel Maddow & Chris Matthews just sat for an hour embracing an Obama Campaign poster, reciting "The Precious....."
Jon Stewart: Grilled Al Gore on selling CurrentTV to Al Jazeera and the seeming inconsistencies between Al Gore, the Mogul and Al Gore, the Climate Change Activist
Stephen Colbert: Dick jokes and a Bill Gates Interview. IMO Bill may adopt a more active role in MSFT in the next 2 years.
Al Jazeera: "U.S. Economy Slides on Core Economic Indicators"
..When the heck did Al Jazeera become the objective news source and did honest journalism fall on the backs of the comedian?
I mean.. I don't (really) care.. it's all just frequencies of electromagnetic radiation surfing through the air or timed flashes of light on a piece of fiber in the ground, anyway. :)
