President & Jobs, 17th amendment, Austin Transportation

a few quick thoughts:

1)  Okay, economy is #1 issue.  Jobs more specifically.  All the criticism is that President Obama isn’t doing enough to create more jobs.  The question I have then is what do you want him to do?  And don’t say tax cuts, at least
not without some proof that isn’t just statistical correlation. 

2)  I posted this

and it resulted in an interesting conversion between me an http://loudelf.com/
about the 17th amendment and the “tea party” stance.   Read the comments
and join in if you like.

3)  Finally some local news =).  Austin city council plans to put up for vote a transportation bond.  What do you fellow austinites think?
