Links – The nation’s leader for 2049 identified - edition

Saturday April 4th, 2009 by fathersez

A friend sent me this picture early this week. I think this young man who is clearly standing up for something he believes in, should make a great leader someday.  I suspect, in fact, predict that we shall hear more about this currently unidentified young man.    


And other interesting reads: 

The CFO wrote about the marriage penalty. This refers to an apparent unfair income tax provision that taxes married couples more than 2 single people. But then which part of the income tax is fair? 

Make Love Not Debt seems to have gone off on a slight tangent from the blog’s tagline. The disparity in incomes earned between the husband and wife seems to have become a small nagging issue. Maybe it’s time to make some more love.  

Frugal Dad wrote about the business of renting vehicle rims. What will people think off next? Is subprime rims going to be the next big financial mess? Or are there other rentals, like refrigerators, 42” LCD TVs etc. lurking out there?  

It seems that there is a pi day. I have been using this strange number a bit lately whilst going through areas and circumferences of circles with my son. Steve seems to have managed to remember it to 10 decimals. For me it has been 3.14 all my life, I think I’ll leave it at that. 

I loved this Green Panda’s debut into the world of video filming. She and her husband can now list the movie industry as another field for them to get into. Have a look and enjoy! I did. 

RocketC, who, I think, started off as a personal finance blogger, and has openly confessed his love for politics, wrote a thundering piece on the financial crisis. So many of the issues he has mentioned are so eerily similar to our situation, thousands of miles away. I think the public all over the world are getting so much better informed. Soon we shall flex their muscles and make sure the politicians and their appointees do what they are supposed to do….that is “to serve”. 

Patrick at Cash Money Life celebrates his 2nd anniversary. He is offering some books to his readers through a random lucky draw. By the time I got to know of this special occasion, he had closed his article for comments. So I am offering him my heartiest congratulations and the very best for the future through this mention.   

That’s it for this week, folks.

Have a great, happy and productive weekend.

Thanks for the mention! It’s a lot harder doing a video post than I thought.

Thanks for the link! That picture is great - I long for the politician who is willing to display that kind of attitude on the side of truth and freedom.

Hi, RocketC,

You are welcome. I share your longing for honest politicians whose sole purpose is to better our lives. Wonder if we’ll ever see this happening in our lifetimes.

I would even settle for politicians who just left us alone. Kind of like the rabbi in Fiddler on the Roof: “May God bless and keep the czar . . . Far away from us!
