Speaking of aliens, the U.S. dollar in alien free fall against the Canadian dollar this past week. And Alan Greenspan has been called on the green carpet for his strange participation in the mortgage mess. He fawns over Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton in terms of fiscal responsibility shown by the pair during their tenure in the White House, but someone should have advised him “shut up Alan, quit while you’re ahead.” But he will sidestep that mess easily enough. Just like the Enron accounting scandal, taxpayers will be left holding the empty bag.
Is it racist for the GOP to snub minorities in recent political debate offering by Tavis Smiley? It was the companion debate to the one hosted by Smiley at Howard University earlier this summer. I did not blog the debate but I did watch it with great fascination. Why, because they really, truly talked about black issues without apology. And in the Univision debate, which did not translate into English, there were questions posed that were shockingly political. They asked about dictators, Castro, Cuba, and our future relationship with that regime. While I could understand most of the debate via Spanish subtitles and some of the spoken Spanish, it was too much to try and put it into a comprehensible article. Good luck finding an English translation. If you find one please post the link here.
