What does it say about our country that we have to hear the cold and hard truth from a comedian?  Check out the video below as comedian Jon Stewart of the Daily Show interviews and exposes Jim Cramer – the self hyped investment and financial guru.  

We are going through a painfully historic economic crisis and recession.  It’s repercussions will be felt for years or at least, I suspect that’s the case.  Things may never be the same – and maybe that’s good.  Why?  I’m no economics sage but something is clearly broken.

We’ve sought wisdom and guidance from our politcians, national leaders, and powerful CEOs and all we’ve had thus far are lots of finger pointing, bailout packages, and [insert thoughts here].  Well, we’ve finally heard something accurate and prophetic from our comedic “fool”:  

“It’s not a f**in’ game…” Read the rest of this entry »

picture of the year – bulls*#t or prophetic?

This gets my early vote for art image of the year.  And if I can be honest, I get a little more satisfaction and pride that this art comes courtesy of a Korean-American artist [graphic designer] named Ji Lee from NYC.  Lots of emerging Korean-American artists but they get no love.

What do you think of the dead bull?

I can’t stop staring at it.  It’s as provocative and subversive as this art referred to as “Upside Down Church” but named “Device to Root out Evil” by the artist:

From the Portfolio Magazine:

To this day, the willingness of a Wall Street investment bank to pay me hundreds of thousands of dollars to dispense investment advice to grownups remains a mystery to me.

the financial crisis and crash of 2008

Who would have thunk? 

Years from now, people will refer to the financial crisis and market crash of 2008 and we can all say: “We were there.” And while it’s affecting so many people, I’m especially concerned for the poorest of the poor around the world and for those who are near retirement age that have much of their retirement funds invested in the markets. 

And while I do feel incredibly bad for those who are going to be severely impacted, I’m also aware that a correction or crash such as this can be good and almost necessary for a world and nation that is ruled by the god of mammon

Layover. San Francisco. Having grown up here, my heart still flutters. No other city like it. A quick, busy, & meaningful 26 hrs in Wash DC but managed to go for an hour walk for this view. One of the greatest monuments in the world. A true American hero. #AbrahamLincoln I may stand on different sides on several issues with this man but I'm committed to praying for my President.

Honored to be joining Christian pastors and leaders today for the White House Prayer Breakfast. The great wheel of Seattle. Cloudy on top. Sunny on the bottom. Such is life sometimes. Taking a walk in one of my fav Seattle spots before a busy month. Embracing the calm before the storm.
