I am hot, It is so hot. Repeat that twenty times and you would think you were watching the Simple Life with Paris Hilton According to my girlfriend the only thing that is hot is my room. Like a broken record reminding me I do not have air conditioning in my house every five minutes. Anything less than an ice box for temperature is not acceptable. The temperature with the fans on is around seventy. About forty degress less than the Middle East region where our militiary is stationed. For our troops protecting our freedom, I salute you for your brave efforts. Have a happy 4th of July.

The Great Leader

Driving into work this morning I heard on the radio Warren Buffet was giving away thirty seven  billion dollars,thirty one billion going directly to The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Buffet considered one of the most successful investors of all time and has picked up the nickname of the “Oracle of Omaha” and has a fortune of forty four  billion. The majority of his money was donated to the Gates Foundation  to help ensure that lifesaving advances in health are created and shared with those who need them most. Most importantly all the money donated goes directly to helping people.                  

What surprised me the most of the announcement was peoples reaction. What about his relatives? They should sue him freeze up his assets because he must be senile. His relatives will be just fine splitting seven billion among fourteen people.  Five hundred million per person which generates twenty five million over every year at five percent. If he had given everything to his relatives the government would take half and waste a large percentage through beauracy.
