Is anybody else sick of hearing about lipstick? I, for one, want to hear about the issues again. Like sustainable tax relief for Americans earning less than $100 grand, the creation of good-paying jobs here in states, affordable health care for every American, and a realistic way to reduce our dependence on foreign oil—or petroleum at all, for that matter—before we can no longer afford to drive to work. My two cents. Here’s a spattering of other bloggers’ views (on personal finance at least), that I particularly enjoyed this week:

Money Under 30 around the Web: I’ve been lazy about submitting to carnivals lately. Just one this week: My post Young people are in financial trouble is featured in the Carnival of Twenty Something Finances hosted at Bargain Briana.
