Lisa Madigan, Illinois Attorney General has called for the temporary removal of Governor Rod Blagojevich from office.
Blagojevich is currently being charged with trying to sale Barack Obama's senator seat to the highest bidder. Madigan wants all Blagojevich's powers as Governor removed on the bases that impeachment will take to long and that the Governor is not acting in the best interest of the people he is suppose to be serving. Madigan has asked that Lt. Gov. Patrick Quinn to be granted temporary appointment of Governor.
With the charges against Blagojevich, it is obvious that he is not acting in any ones interest but his own, asking that anyone taking Obama's seat would have to support the Governor in his political decisions.

The beige book, the Federal Reserve's beige book. Show that as of Wednesday, Dec, 2, 2008, that the overall economic activity has weakened across all Federal Reserve Districts. (Big shock there! Not!!)

The report shows that the bargain and discount stores are showing an increase in spending, while the once more popular department stores are slowing down. This coupled with the constriction in the service industry from the last report are not surprising to anyone and very much expected.

You have all heard it. You only have a 50-50 chance of your marriage lasting. Now, we have some good news for you. The odds of your marriage lasting is going up and the truth is that there are several other factors that must be accounted for before you can give an accurate accounting for you chance of a long and fruitful marriage.
Betsey Stevenson of the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School said that since about 1979 the divorce rate in the USA has been on a slow but steady decline.
There are several factors but many are starting to argue that as we have eased our way towards the current recession that more people are willing to stick together than be forced to go it alone. (Just one opinion of many).
With sites out there on the internet like Secretsoffamilylaw.com offering help with child custody and putting parents in touch with resources that not only help them with the legal system but allow them the opportunity to see what they are going to have to go through just to retain or obtain custody of their children, it is an eye opening experience for newly married couples that are stressed out over finances and the happiness of their children.
I want to thank Secretsoffamilylaw.com for letting us review their materials and interviews with the company. They are extremely helpful.

Why is it that he is allowed to have seven magazine covers on Time Magazine and yet John McCain the Republican rival for presidency only has had two cover appearances on the magazine.
All media groups are required by federal mandated law to give equal time to all parties. Has it become so blatant that our political parties in this country are ready to show us the fact that they do not believe that they have to follow the laws that they would uphold the rest of us to?

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is today and the United States takes a little time off to remember him.
Calling today a sacred holiday the Chiagotribune.com talks about the the spiritual aspects of his life.
In the SFGate.com article there is more information on his effect on modern day American and the upcoming election.
On a more personal level Roanoke.com is asking Virginians how they feel that things have changed since the death of King 40 years ago.
I believe that he was a great inspirational leader that did not allow others to push him around. He was one of the few men that had a voice that was not going to be silenced until he was heard and all of America's eyes were opened.
It is sad that it took his life for our predecessors to open there eyes and return to the change of laws and rules to once again put us back on track. To follow through with the idea that all men (and women) were created equal.

Many golfers have turned to a new way of golfing, or should I say an old way with a new face.
Video or digital golf has been around for 20 years now, even the Atari 2600 had a kids mini-golf game. This was done with blocks of pixels and even the ball was square.
Snapping back to the new millennium, we take a look at were we have come.
This is becoming one of the hottest sites in the arm-chair golfer world. There are many coarse golfers that have put down the real clubs to pickup and compete in this around the world simulation. I don't think you will see this at the Orlando Show. Video clips from the Orlando PGA Merchandise show.
Now that this site has a strong following of men there is no doubt that they will inevitably be trying to gain the women's following as well. (Updates from the LPGA Tour)
As the numbers of stay at home or soccer mom's increases and they have started to seek out work at home opportunities such as Secret Shopping. They now have more disposable income and have started seeking out golf as a way to relax and get in a light bit of exercise.
This will be as much potential for those moms that have a full schedule and can't get away to the course to simply fire up there computer and get in a quick 9 holes without having to leave the comfort of there home.

The Strait of Hormuz is starting to heat up as five Iranian revolutionary guard boats provoked three US Navy ships in one of the best strategic location for Opec's trade route.
This could lead to more problems for the US if there is a military build up in the strait or the gulf that is part of the Iranian coast.
This is believed to be the result of US interfering in the Islamic nuclear program. Do we have another war pending in our future and will we lose our import of oil if there is?
