Weekly Podcast – August 10, 2011

Wow. Sorry for the length. I knew it was running long, but 20 minutes??


But this is me. I get started on something and it’s hard to shut me up.

One correction: I think I said something about 43% of people being unemployed. Whoa. Obviously, that’s not right. I think the 43% stat is the percentage of people under qualified to find work in our country. (Which would obviously be a direct result of our crappy educational system). That’s not the unemployment percentage. Wow. Can you imagine unemployment at 43%??

Uh, let’s not imagine that.

Here are the links to the articles I mentioned in today’s podcast:

Is Obama Smart? A case study in stupid is as stupid does

Wisconsin Republicans Hold On to Senate Majority in Contentious Recall Election

Thanks for listening. Be safe.

P.S. I used this microphone for the podcast, in case you’re in the market for one. It works pretty good and it’s reasonably priced!

P.S.S. I gathered, from the little that Dude told me, that the interview went okay. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when the gal was talking to him just to see how he conducted himself. He said it only lasted ten minutes, which tells me that he probably won’t get the job. (I mean, a short interview time is not necessarily an indicator that the interview went badly, but in my experience, short interviews are not generally a good sign). I would never tell him this, but I hope he doesn’t get this particular job. It’s quite a drive away from home and he can do better, in my opinion. However, if they offer him a job, he’ll take it with the intention of continuing to look for a better job down the road.
