The media is filled with speculation on who Mitt Romney’s running mate choice will be. However, none of them actually know who it will be. You may continue the speculation in the comments.

Doctors and nurses in the UK’s national health system are likely facing a 5% reducing in wages, the work day extended by 25 minutes (which is the same as cutting wages further), reductions in overtime, and two fewer vacation days. How much incentive is there for Britain’s best and brightest to pursue a career in healthcare?

Street lights in one Brazilian city are being powered by inmates who are being offered reduced sentences for choosing to ride stationary bicycles that charge batteries. Would this or another similar system be effective in the US?

A 71 year old man in Florida used his concealed .38 to fend off thugs who were intent on robbing the internet cafe he was patronizing. Watch the video at the link. Do you agree with what he did? Would you do the same?

    After all the speculation about the VP pick, I have a feeling I’ll be left underwhelmed.

    As for the old man who stopped the robbery.. when it comes down to protecting you and yours, make sure you put two in the chest and one in the head.

    Wow… I love the video of the old man fending off the robbers.  That’s fantastic!  I would hope that I or someone near me had the guts to do it.

    I don’t know how effective it would be to have inmates ride a bike to charge batteries here, but I’d be willing to try.

    I’m getting tired of the media’s speculation about who Romney’s VP will be… The headlines yesterday… Romney has made a decision…. No he hasn’t… He has narrowed it down to 3… He’s announcing later this week… He’ll announce between now and the convention…  Enough already!  I’m not hearing anything that I haven’t been hearing for the last 3 months.

        I am pulling for Rubio, actually. I like T-Paw very much and I do believe he was a much stronger candidate than the primary demonstrated and I do believe he has many assets that would benefit the campaign. He is very likable, seems to appeal to working class, very smart and knowledgable and could make an effective attack dog. I will not be disappointed with T-Paw but I do prefer Rubio.

        I’d like Jindal. But we’ll find out sometime soon.
