Thought Of The Day

If the Republicans lost the White House and they are in the minority in both houses of Congress, why are they all over my Tee Vee?

Damn Liberal Media!

Really Wired

This article in Wired Magazine is about using iPhone apps to say "I am here" wherever you are.
But this part makes me paranoid too:

"To test whether I was being paranoid, I ran a little experiment. On a sunny Saturday, I spotted a woman in Golden Gate Park taking a photo with a 3G iPhone. Because iPhones embed geodata into photos that users upload to Flickr or Picasa, iPhone shots can be automatically placed on a map. At home I searched the Flickr map, and score—a shot from today. I clicked through to the user's photostream and determined it was the woman I had seen earlier. After adjusting the settings so that only her shots appeared on the map, I saw a cluster of images in one location. Clicking on them revealed photos of an apartment interior—a bedroom, a kitchen, a filthy living room. Now I know where she lives."

No Honeymoon For President Obama

According to Republicans, President Obama can't be bipartisan unless he caves to their demands. They certainly did not act in a bipartisan manner when they were in the majority.

John Amato at Crooks and Liars is warning the President not to give in to them. I understand Obama's desire to show that he is wants his economic stimulus package to be embraced by both parties, but he needs to realize that the GOP cannot be reasoned with, they cannot be bargained with. A hammer is the only thing they understand. Then when you hit them with it, they cry like little babies.

Also, I really enjoy hearing the republicans talk about the size of the President's package!

Today's The Day

It's been a long time coming. I don't know what's better, a President Obama or an ex-president Bush.

It's a President Obama of course!

Here's to a new day here in America!

These Guys Are Getting Better Every Year

Mo' Money Tax Service out of Memphis, TN has been doing cheesy TV ads for the last 3 or 4 years. This year is by far the best yet.

It makes me laugh everytime I see it.

Are We Being Punked?

That was the thought by Rachel Maddow last night on my tv. The 700 Billion dollar bailout for the finacial sector I believe was the final pillage of the robber barons before the end of the "Bush Era". Now that half of that money is gone and no one knows where it went, the Washington Post says "W" wants the other 350 Billion dollars now before he leaves office in 10 days.

I say a big "F**K YOU"!!!

I realize things are tough and are going to get much worse, but I cannot believe Congress would even consider giving him another dime.

But I have been wrong before. It's not like he can't take a disaster and make hay out of it. Like 9/11, Iraq, Katrina and the finacial meltdown last September.

I Have Discovered My One Talent

If you ever see me standing in a checkout line, take my advice: Don't get behind me! I have a talent for picking the wrong line, every time.

Example - I go to Walmart to pick up just a couple of items. I see that one of the self checkout registers is open so I head for that one. But someone else beats me to it. I think that's ok he only has two jugs of Hawaiian Punch, shouldn't take long. Then I notice that he has 15 packs of Kool-Aid in his hand. God, it takes him forever to check out. With every scan he checks that it scans correctly, then he can't figure out that the register is looking for him to place the item into the bagging area. The Kool-Aid packs are light and the machine can't tell they have been put into the bag so you have to tell it to skip bagging. It's all I can do to keep cool. Finally, after 15 minutes he gets it done and I can get the hell out of there.
