Illinois Governor Rob Blagojevich was arrested this morning at his home for allegedly trying to sell the Senate seat vacated by Barack Obama.According to Chicago's WLS the affidavit includes the following...During the call, Rob Blagojevich stated, "unless I get something real good for [Senate Candidate 1], s--t, I'll just send myself, you know what I'm saying."Rob Blagojevich later stated, "I'm going to keep this Senate option for me a real possibility, you know, and therefore I can drive a hard bargain. You hear what I'm saying. And if I don't get what I want and I'm not satisfied with it, then I'll … (208 comments)

jay allen: New Paul McCartney - Electric Arguments - 11/28/08 05:31 PM
As I write this post, I am listening to a fantastic new Paul McCartney album!  The album, Electric Arguments, under the moniker "The Fireman" is a collaboration between McCartney and a producer named Youth.  This is the third release from The Fireman, but it seems to have attracted the most attention.  My favorite song is Traveling Light - it sounds like Pink Floyd plus Paul McCartney in 1971.Let me know your thoughts, if you listen to the album!Best regards,JayJay AllenMovieVoicejay@movievoice.net

jay allen: The Relevance of 1876 in 2008... - 11/18/08 04:45 PM
Google has recently published several volumes of photographs from LIFE magazine.  I've spent the last hour looking at many of these fascinating, depressing, and bizarre pictures dating back to the 1870s.  Every picture I see, seems to flood my mind with more blogging ideas than I can possibly write - pictures of the Great Depression and if it relates to current economic conditions - pictures of Congress from decades ago and how odd it is to see no women and all whites - pictures of windmills from the 1800s and how odd it is to think that this "technology" is part … (12 comments)

jay allen: What's Cheaper than the Bailout? - 11/17/08 02:57 PM
It's interesting if not astonishing to compare the $700 billion bailout to the cost of other major government projects and wars. According to CNBC, when adjusted for inflation, the Vietnam War, Korean War, Gulf Wars 1 & 2, and the war on terror have all cost less money than the bailout. And the ten years of technological advancements to send a man to the moon was 1/3 the cost of the bailout.  The following is a list of big projects with original costs and inflation adjusted costs:Hoover DamOriginal Cost: $49 million | Inflation Adjusted Cost: $782 millionPanama CanalOriginal Cost: $375 million … (9 comments)

jay allen: Why can't ActiveRain spell Barack Obama? - 11/06/08 06:41 AM
I think ActiveRain is a great website - informative, fun and addictive!  However, it seems odd that the spellcheck feature on ActiveRain, as of today, does not recognize the name of our President-Elect. If you type a blog or make a comment with the name Barack Obama - the spellcheck recognizes it as being a mistake.
So, come on AR - update your spellchecker!

jay allen: "Originality" - 11/02/08 03:03 PM
In July, I founded the AR Group - Blatant Politics. Since then, I have posted several political blogs. However, with the election just hours from now, there will soon be less emphasis on politics (for better or worse) both in the news and on my blogs.
One of my favorite hobbies, outside of arguing about politics, is composing/writing/recording original music. So, in the spirit of non-politics, I've created a new group called "Originality".
Originality is a group for originators. Members should present original thoughts, original artwork, original music, and/or any other original material for others to review, praise and to offer … (7 comments)

jay allen: Watch this Actor Portray a Candidate in Campaign TV Ad - 10/30/08 03:40 PM
This is the first campaign ad that I've seen with an actor portraying a candidate. In Kentucky there is a very entertaining, negative campaign, by both parties, for Mitch McConnell's seat in the U.S. Senate.
This 30 second ad features an actor portraying Mitch McConnell. In the commercial, McConnell, who is the Senate Minority Leader, is being chased through the woods by hound dogs to find his "record".

What do you think of this ad?

During the past couple of months, I have posted several political blogs. However, with the election less than a week from now, there will soon be less emphasis on politics both in the news and on my blogs.
One of my favorite hobbies, outside of arguing about politics, is composing/writing/recording original music. So, in the spirit of non-politics, I give you an original music composition called Eerie Ringtone... (the player doesn't always work on the blog, so you might have to click the link)

jay allen: Should Election Day by a National Holiday? - 10/29/08 09:50 AM
Salaried professionals/white collar workers are more likely to have control of their work schedule than hourly blue collar workers. Therefore, white collar workers would have easier access to the election booth than their blue collar counterparts. It seems logical that this would create a situation in which people earning less money would be less likely and less able to vote.
In fact, Census data from the 2004 election shows a direct correlation between participation and household income - lower class citizens are much less likely to vote than upper class citizens. Only 36.5% of individuals from families earning less than $10k/yr voted, … (36 comments)

jay allen: Palin's Hometown Paper Endorses Obama - 10/26/08 03:49 PM
This weekend, Sarah Palin's hometown newspaper, The Anchorage Daily News announced that it would endorse Barack Obama for President. Based on Palin not being able to name one newspaper or magazine in an interview, it wouldn't surprise me if she didn't read the article. Despite her qualifications, the newspaper stated that "Palin's nomination clearly alters the landscape for Alaskans as we survey this race for the presidency -- but it does not overwhelm all other judgment."
In terms of the economy, The Anchorage Daily News cites McCain's longtime opposition to market regulation. And more recently his erratic (as the paper states … (49 comments)

jay allen: Who Ended Depression? - DEMOCRATIC President, Senate, House - 10/26/08 08:57 AM
A Democratic President, Senate, and House ended the Great Depression... and they'll do it again.
Many people have expressed concern, especially given the current depression-esque state of the economy, about Democrats controlling the White House, Senate and House. The suggestion is that spending will run rampant, socialism will ensue, and the country will disintegrate. However, the great depression ended with the Democrats in "full-control".
The years leading directly to the Great Depression were lead by Republican Presidents Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover and were supported by Republican controlled Congresses. As the saying goes, the Rich got Richer and the Poor got Poorer … (48 comments)

Here’s something entertaining that I came across earlier this evening. If you've got a couple of minutes visit palinaspresident.com (be sure to click on the door to the left a few times). The website makes light of many of Governor and Vice Presidential Nominee Sarah Palin's quirks.Also, in the interest of full disclosure, I found this website at Oursignal.com.  Oursignal.com complies a list of the most blogger/researched stories on sites similar to Yahoo Buzz and Digg.Best regards,Jay

jay allen: Health Care is a Right - 10/12/08 05:45 AM
It's been nearly a week since the second presidential debate. In hindsight, the statement that stands out the most to me is Obama saying that health care is a "right". The founding principles of our country include certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
We have national defense to protect all Americans from death by attack. We have government imposed speed limits to protect all Americans from death by high-speed crash. We have government sponsored police and fire departments to protect all Americans from death by murder or fire. Why should we not have … (65 comments)

jay allen: What if Ronald McDonald Were Treasury Secretary? - 09/29/08 04:16 AM
Yesterday, I posted an article about Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and his CEO friends losing hundreds of millions of dollars from their personal portfolios. In fact, during the last 20 months Paulson has lost nearly $300 Million from stock at Goldman Sachs, his former employer. It seems that Paulson has two significant ulterior motives for selling Congress and taxpayers on the $700 billion bailout - his friends and Goldman Sachs.
Following many spectacular collapses of financial firms (Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Bros, etc.), Goldman Sachs somehow managed to stay afloat - perhaps they knew long ago about this a bailout … (7 comments)
