Now for all of you waiting to cash in your vacation with a nice fat check, this is a wakeup call. Go out and vacation. A great article, Take your vacation, or die?, says that Europeans are doing a must better job at relaxing and getting away from the workplace stress. 25% of Americans do not take their vacations and this leads to health problems, including greater chances of heart disease. In fact, the article claims that if you work less you will be more productive. Just ask the Germans who work some of the fewest hours in Europe.

In fact, non-violent crimes continue to cost taxpayers more and more money. Will the same thing happen to Romney when we realize how much Bain capital has hidden?
Should non-violent criminals be placed into prison?
