Questions

What is it with this rainbow thing? What does it have to do who you have sex with? and why are we calling people gay, The homosexuals get depressed as much if not more than normal people. Who is rewriting the dictionary? And why are people calling me wingnut?

Lighting Up

Obama lighting up.

Its OK to laugh. You know its funny.  I used to have a thing about Cuban cigars. but these days I think the Nicaragan and Dominican are every bit as good and cheaper.

Frack the Middle East

Gas at $2.999
Bacliff Valaro Gas Prices

I saw this on the way into work this morning. $2.999  for a gallon of gas.

Despite the uncertainty of wars and revolution in the Middle East , Gas prices continue to drop. We just started to shift away from the summer fuel blends , and if winter doesn’t turn out to be to harsh maybe we will continue to get a break in the prices.

With all the uncertainty in the Middle East could it be that we are benefiting from fracking?

BTW: This is the same place that had the Siracha flavored Whoopie pies.

Memo to IRS management

Maybe the IRS should consider moving to Gmail.   They never seem to crash, its constantly backed up  and its free.

The Great Fisking!

In a great fisking Walmart takes on the New York Times.  It becomes obvious that Timothy Egan of the Times didn’t have a clue about what he was writing about. There are certain Institutions and Corporations the the leftist rally against.  It seems as if there is something they don’y like about the entity, every thing about them must be under attack.

The Great Fisking

Walmart didn’t address the comparison of Walmart with Costco.

What could change Walmart is growing public disdain for the company. A new poll by Lake Research Partners found that 28 percent of consumers surveyed have an unfavorable view of Walmart — almost five times the negative sentiment felt for Costco. Poor treatment of workers was cited most often as the reason not to shop there.

I seems as though It would have been fairer to compare Walmart’s Sam’s opertion to Costco rather than the whole of Walmart. But the New York times isn’t about being fair is it?

The same types of attacks are made against the Koch brothers .  Most are completely off the wall because:

  • They aren’t right wing extremist. They are Libertarians.
  • They have no more influence on elections than George Soros , the Kenedys or George Clooney.
  • They give money to organizations such as PBS’ NOVA and United Negro College Fund

On my Commute

Sign At Pop's Bar
Sign At Pop’s Bar

On the way into work work I’ve noticed this sign at a small bar in Texas City. It looks to me like somebody didn’t pay there bar bill.

Thoughts on the NFL Ad Ban

The censorous  bastards of the  NFL are at it again. They found it to offensively violent for NFL football fans. After viewing the ad its hard to understand why this is banned and caveman crushing dinosaurs are permitted.

Maybe there is an explanation, as offered by The Gun Nut. David E. Petzal in his Field and Stream article.

After the rejection, Daniel Defense offered to replace the logo—a gun—with a slogan, but the NFL said sorry, no way, again.

It’s possible that this is nothing more than hypocrisy. But the real reason, I think, is that the NFL is trying to protect its investments. The oversized guy who crashes his $150,000 custom SUV into a house and breaks down the door with his fists to strangle the family inside may be someone’s number one draft pick, and all those millions his team spent on him would go right down the drain if some terrified homeowner shot him in self-defense.

And we can’t have that now, can we?  It’s…un-American.

Makes sense to me.

In My Email inbox

First I want to apologize for the liberal use of the F word…
In 2008 sometime I had to register on an Obamian Campaign site to see some garbage that the campain was spewing. While I gave them a legitimate Email Address I didn’t give the site my real name.  That was more than 5 years ago. I stilll get regular emails from leftist organizations.  Including OFA .. This one is from the Democratic headquarters.

———————————————————————————————–

Fuck Obama —

I know your inbox is getting flooded with emails today (sorry!). Here’s why:

Right now, the Republicans are effectively attempting to reverse the results of the 2012 elections. If President Obama refuses to block his own health care reform law and enact the Romney-Ryan agenda, the Republicans are threatening to shut down the government — or worse, cause a global financial crisis by defaulting on our debt.

What the Republicans are trying to do to President Obama right now is unprecedented. We need to have an unprecedented response.

Name: Fuck Obama And Aal That He Stands For
Supporter record: 11761871
Suggested Support: $3.00

Tomorrow night is the biggest fundraising deadline of the year. That’s why we’re hoping to raise a record-breaking $2.2 million to show Boehner that grassroots Democrats are standing together — stronger than ever — behind President Obama’s second-term agenda.

The only way we’ll get there is if another 25,000 supporters step up in the next 24 hours. So we have to ask, Fuck Obama — can you chip in $3?

24 HOURS LEFT: Donate $3 or more today and your donation will be TRIPLE-MATCHED.

We know we’re asking a lot. Hitting the $2.2 million mark would set a new record for online grassroots donations in a non-election year.

But if we’re going to stop Republicans’ attempt to hijack President Obama’s second-term agenda, we need to throw everything we have at this.

Can we count on you?

I think I’ll pass.  I just wish i didn’t get the typo on “All” when I registered.

Tell Us How You Really Feel, Howie

Howie Carr of the Boston Herald unloaded big time in an editorial piece titled Moonbats Mourn Another Red Thug. The rant begins:

Say it ain’t so, Joe, or should I say Jose?

Poor Joe Kennedy, mourning the loss of his grand amigo, “El Comandante,” the tinpot Latin American thug who put the “profit” back in “non-profit” for the Kennedy kleptocracy.

How can Hugo be dead, Joe? He went to Cuba for medical treatment. They took him straight to the hospital from the airport in a DeSoto ambulance.

Let’s go right to the Joe K press release:

“President Chavez cared deeply about the poor … while some of the wealthiest people on our planet have more money than they can ever reasonably expect to spend.”

Damn right, comrade! Es verdad. For the 
record, according to 2011 tax filings, Comrade Joe made $901,236 from Citizens Energy and related corporations. His lovely bride, Beth, grabbed another $346,764.

Total: $1,248,000.

Howie is just winding up at this point, He takes shots at the Democratic leadership, The cities of Cambridge and Amherst, and a shot at the Heralds competion the Globe.:

Someone dimmed the lights at the Globe, causing an immediate panic in the newsroom, where the fops 
assumed the newspaper was finally being shut down.

Pi in the Sky

Rasberry Pi
Rasperry Pi

In England some people have decided to do something about what they feel is a slipping in their computer skills as a nation,  They have been working on a $25.00 solution. The Raspberry Pi.  The boards are slowly being let out to the legions of waiting hackers ( I expect to get mine at around the middle of April. The Raspberry Pi has created a lot of chatter and plans. It will be able to run several OS systems including some pretty robust Linux based systems,  complete with the standard development  tools. Of all the different plans and hacks, the strangest idea may be comming from the folks at The Pirate Bay.

The idea is to set up drones flying over international waters and using the a Raspberry Pi as a portal to route traffic to secret ground based systems.  In a blog posting yesterday The Pirate Bay folks laid out their plans.

With the development of GPS controlled drones, far-reaching cheap radio equipment and tiny new computers like the Raspberry Pi, we’re going to experiment with sending out some small drones that will float some kilometers up in the air. This way our machines will have to be shut down with aeroplanes in order to shut down the system. A real act of war.

We’re just starting so we haven’t figured everything out yet. But we can’t limit ourselves to hosting things just on land anymore. These Low Orbit Server Stations (LOSS) are just the first attempt. With modern radio transmitters we can get over 100Mbps per node up to 50km away. For the proxy system we’re building, that’s more than enough.

But when time comes we will host in all parts of the galaxy, being true to our slogan of being the galaxy’s most resilient system. And all of the parts we’ll use to build thatsystem on will be downloadable.

They aren’t without their critics, and while I  believe the future belong to those who take bold steps, I cant help but wonder what these guys are smoking and what tint of purple haze are they in while they type this stuff.

Just wondering ..
