The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Befriend

Culture

While at the mall a few weeks ago, I overheard some younger people talking about being befriended.  It was totally being misused as a negative.  One would have thought with the use of facebook that the word “Befriend” would be used more often and the use of it would educate people in the use allowing them to become custom to using it.

My friend's thoughts on CFL's

CFL's, Energy

To me, the idea of making illegal traditional bulbs is ridiculous, equally as ridiculous as believing people are going to take their burned out and broken CFLs to the recycling center.  You'd probably spend more on gas driving there to recycle the bulb (due to the mercury content) than you saved during it's use.

Saving Money & Studies

Leadership, Culture

Why is it that liberals cry that we need studies to see if there is a cheaper way of doing things (like they want the Hoan Bridge gone and made street level), but we cannot do a study to make public jobs private (like privatizing the parks jobs or the people cleaning public buildings)?
