Ok now what

So I did my second podcast tonight. It went much better than the first and I will continue to get better at it. One point I didn’t explore enough is how many people really know what happened on the Senate floor yesterday? Will that filibuster and the surrounding hoopla on Twitter translate to the masses? And if not why not? I now think it may. For two reasons, the Baltimore Sun and the Daily Show. These traditional liberal media outlets praising Senator Paul will greatly help. The fact of the matter is that this is not a partisan issue. Most issues aren’t. We have problems and they need solutions. My answer is that government is not the solution to all of the problems. As a society we need to acknowledge that life is dangerous and no one is going to make it out alive. We need to stop trying for perfect security be it from terrorists (who if they had the capability would have done much more damage in the US by now), from sugary 20 oz. drinks, from guns, or from marijuana.

Hey, I'm Tim. I am a native Marylander. I did live in South Carolina for three years when I became a gamecock. I believe in a smaller government and a debate on how to make that happen. I drink bourbon because I am an American and it is my God given right to imbibe on such fine nectar. I need a new bookcase because of my obsession with reading. It helped me pass the time when I was young and my mother wouldn't let me go outside. Between that and all the bacon she put in the green beans it is a wonder I don't weigh 300 pounds yet. I hope you like what you read and let me know what you think.
