That time of year

I wonder if anyone has ever done a study to see the economic impact of campaigning and elections.  Without getting into who should win or lose in another state, shouldn't putting $100 million of your own personal money help the economy?

Don't take my picture as an endorsement of any candidate.

The Texas Rangers took game 1 of their playoff series against the Tampa Bay Rays.  It's a shame they have to have playoff games during the week played during the day.   But, I would rather have day playoff games with the Rangers over nothing at all.

Why does a man/woman spend Millions of dollars of their own money to run for a job that pays so little in comparison? Serious egos!

Right now I'm a wee bit tired of all the literature drops, calls, and negative ads. The money that is spent on compaigns is obscene!

It's a bit weird. I wonder how much money mayor Bloomberg have spent in New York. They should be able to get the message out without throwing away all that money.
