State of the Union

Obama was his usual eloquent self at the State of the Union-if he's good at anything, it's giving speeches.
Most of it was just so much hot air and promises that he's going to need Congressional cooperation to carry out, like every other State of the Union. 2 things stuck out:
-Don't Ask Don't Tell: I like repeal of DADT in theory. In practice, what do you do about shared sleeping/bathing areas? They don't force men and women to bunk together; what issue is present there that is not present with homosexuals and heterosexuals of the same gender bunking together. Note that I am not saying homosexuals are any more immoral than heterosexuals, just that they suffer from the same temptations everyone else does.
-Dissing the Citizens United decision WHILE THE SUPREME COURT WAS SITTING THERE. Was even FDR so brazen? What would the reaction have been if Bush were to criticize Lawrence during his State of the Union while the Supreme Court was sitting there? Bad form, Barry.

The Shot Heared Round the World

GOP win in MA.
Congress-do you hear us now? WE DON'T WANT YOUR HEALTHCARE BILL!!!
Glad to see the GOP learned something from NY-23 and isn't forcing socons on the Northeast. If they continue this strategy (fiscal conservative/social moderate candidates), they will retake Congress in 2010.

Haiti Relief

Google has information on how you can give to help the people of Haiti recover from the earthquake. They have several charities listed; take your pick. Anyone reading this is, almost by definition, better off than the average Haitian was on Jan 11. And even if you don't care about foreigners, it is in the United States's interest to help out in this case (Haiti is about 600 miles from Florida).

One More Step Down

Had my Orientation to the Profession class yesterday. All I need is one more affidavit in, and I'll be admitted to practice.

Happy New Year!

Happy 2010! May all the bad predictions (high employment) be wrong, all the good predictions (Repubs do well in 2010 elections-divided government!) be right, and may this decade be better than the last.
