Pop some popcorn and enjoy the show aka debate – or not

Maybe the debate wasn’t actually much of a show.  Romney spent too much time smirking and changing his story.  Obama spent too much time smirking and looking anywhere but at his opponent or the audience. I’ll say it flat out, though I know my brothers will disagree with me – and at least one reads […]

Choices, the Good and the Bad

So, last weekend Romney made a choice on who his running mate is going to be.  I’ve been watching interestedly because I’m curious about whether the choice is going to be good or bad for his campaign.  I mean, he’s been sliding in the polls. I find it even more interesting that he chose another […]

Equality and Inequality

Only two different videos tonight.  One is highly partisan, but is only 5 minutes.  The other talks of inequality, and is 16 minutes long. I think the second is more valuable, but the first still gives food for thought.

Pete and Repeat sitting on a wall. Pete fell off. Who who was left?

Old joke, I know. My stepdad’s brother got his nickname from that joke. Going through news sites tonight, I noticed an article about how Republicans never learn and will always repeat their failed and unpopular policies. The article is here – http://www.politicususa.com/en/republican-fail-loop (opens in a new window). The author had some points about Republicans repeating […]

WYSIWYG or Not as the Case May Be

When I first started designing websites, I found editors that were referred to as WYSIWYG or What You See is What You Get.  For some reason, this phrase resonates with a few things I was listening to tonight when trying to get the boy to sleep.  One of these days, my 3 yo will sleep […]

NDAA, Twitter and the Official Barack Obama Twitter Account

LOL for a bit tonight, I had second thoughts about a response I sent to a Tweet from the official Obama Twitter account.  It had a link to information about volunteering for his campaign for this next year.  But I went to the official Twitter account, and my response was lost among many stating they […]

SOPA – The Bad Idea That Would NOT Die

So every once in awhile, a new bill hits Congress with the goal of reducing online piracy.  The latest version of this is SOPA or the Stop Online Piracy Act.  The counterpart in the Senate is PROTECT-IP (this one’s a mouthful – Preventing Real Online Threats to Economic Creativity and Theft of Intellectual Property Act).  I […]

No Comment, Just Questions

Are we a democracy or a republic? Are we turning into the Incorporated States of America? From YouTube: Edited to add the following, posted from OccupyOakland. And one more: I know my parents don’t agree with Bernie, but this is what I’ve been saying when my parents ask my opinion of what’s going on, or […]

Don’tcha Know, Talkin’ ’bout a Revolution, Sounds Like a Whisper

With apologies to Tracy Chapman, it seems like the revolution has started not with a bang, but with a whisper. Occupy Wall Street has been marching on Wall Street past the original 14 days planned.  They’re now coming up on 21 days – if I remember correctly.   Similar groups have been marching in other cities […]

Chaos or Precursor to Collapse?

I frequently read The Simple Dollar (opens in a new window).  Trent Hamm has a number of arguments for watching your spending, and very clear ideas on ways to save money and pay off debt.  He uses some of the tips from Dave Ramsey, but also pulls from other sources and tells what works for […]
