Electorate to Politicians: It’s Time to DRIP

Dont Reelect Incumbent Politicians

From CNN:

Analysis: Open season on political incumbents – CNN.com: So much for political kingmakers and the machine, at least in Kentucky and Pennsylvania. National and statewide political officials and operatives watched their chosen candidates fall Tuesday in two separate primaries with two different narratives weaved together by the common thread of anti-establishment.

YEAH! In Washington today, it’s the incumbents that are the problem. The party is irrelevant. We need to get the bums outta there, and it seems as thought the electorate is finally getting that message. Arlen Specter is a great example.

Republican-turned-Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania saw his 30-year career in the Senate come to an abrupt end at the hands of Rep. Joe Sestak despite being endorsed by President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell and just about every big-name Democrat.

Once thought to be invincible, he switched parties to ensure his re-election, and now he’s out on his ear. Nobody wants him. I say again… YEAH!

More Mark’s Daily Apple Readers “Go Primal”It has been quite a journey so far... I’ve always considered August 4th 2009 as my start point. That is when I started to record this experience. My weight was 234 lbs. Today I’m at 192 lbs. My waist has gone from 46 inches to 39 inches. My chest has shrunk from 49 inches to 44 inches.

You gotta love it. I’ve had similar results: Lost 50 lbs and 6 inches on my waist, blood pressure dropped, liver function dramatically improved (cholesterol down to 160 from 240), and I get to eat real food. I’ve kept the weight down and the health up for 4 years now, and have never once counted a calorie. C’mon everyone… if you’re struggling and following some diet based on conventional wisdom, give the Primal Blueprint a try and see some real results.

First Round of the Year

UGH! I played my first round of golf of the year, and my swing was all over the place. I couldn’t hit the ball to save my life. Thankfully, I was playing with a great group of guys and wasn’t keeping score! It was a practice round… at least that’s what I tell myself :-). The first real round will be this saturday when I play with a group of friends at Blissful Meadows, a beautiful layout in Uxbridge, MA. Hopefully I’ll have found my swing by then.

Golf is a funny sport that way. In fact, it may be the only sport out there where day to day a person’s capability to play well is dramatically different. The only thing comparable that I can think of might be pitching in baseball. The same kind of precision is required. The difference between great and terrible is measured in fractions of inches.
