Romney and Obama and made in China?

Last nights Presidential debate was more fire spirited. Lots of exchanges, and the contestants did not want to stop talking when time ran out.

One comment by Obama was about Romneys investments in China. This was before Romneys spiel about how manufacturing has shifted to the Red Empire. Romney admitted he would possibly place tariffs against the country, unless they did  not raise their exchange rate.

Romney come back in the end, defending his investments with China, asking where the current Presidents pension investments currently lie?  China?

A good comeback for Romney. The USA has a big decision here to make. It makes people wonder- If these two guys have investments in China, how will they be really truly willing to cope with this problem? Is the trillion or so dollars owed to them, is that a problem for the USA?

Obama did do allot of campaign promises that he set out to do in his four years. Romney is a successful business man, and Governor.

Who won the debate? I would say it was even, but Obama did defend himself very well. He communicated well to the audience about college student job problems, and so forth. Romney hit him hard with the China investment comment. I would say even, perhaps?

Can you blame the economy on Obama? After all, W Bush left him with an incredible situation to tame.

Romney wants to give tax breaks, business tax breaks, to invigorate the economy. He made a slight comment towards Reaganomics, back in the good old days.

Obama wants to perhaps raise taxes on the top percentile earners. Try to reduce the deficit. Romney says they already pay 60 % of the tax load.

As someone from a different country, I will stay out of this debate. If I lived in the USA, I know who I would vote for. I cannot wait for the outcome, and the poll numbers going in towards it. Two very good candidates, might I add...

No news on the book front, till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
