Yeah, but ...

"But what troubles me is when I hear people say that
all of government is inherently bad," said Obama...

Have I said that Verizon is filled with nice but incompetent people? And FIOS TV is the biggest piece of crap service on Earth? I did? Okay. Sorry. Carry on.

Little Things

Kindle, schmindle...I've got your
$350 e-book reader right here

Boned Jello

I bought this Acer notebook a few weeks ago from Woot.  It took some getting used to.  I have a 50" television, a 23" monitor, and the Acer 10+ inch screen was a bitch. The  wireless mouse didn't work for me, and I am not nimble with that touch pad mouse.  However, I finally got things squared away, so now what? 

The only reason I bought it was for those times when I'm going to be in a waiting room, or some other place without a computer. [Aside: I showed it to MoSup, and she said, "Oh good.  Now you can take your sandbox with you." grrrr]  Anxious to get more utility out of it,  I got to thinking, hey, I bet there's a way to Kindleize this deal.  And, there is

Like the guy says, you'll want to flip the screen, and that's where the  free app called EeeRotate comes in.  As far as e-books, you can buy them, or you can avail yourself of the million free classics available.  Like from Diesel e-Books

I tried the Microsoft Reader, but there were so many restrictions I said screw it.  I settled on Adobe's Digital Editions reader, not to be confused with its PDF reader.  Will I ever actually use it?  Don't know. 

For what it's worth.  You're welcome.

This time it's with a woman.

Obama cheats?

That would pretty much complete the list. Michelle will be announcing her run for a  U.S.Senate seat from New York any day now.

I'm just saying


Terminal Tardness

Hacker of Sarah Palin's e-mail found guilty,
but that's not what I'm telling you about

Boned Jello

This is, comments made under this Reuters news item, by permanent members of the OJ jury pool ...
It was the hackers fault that Palin the Tea Bagger and Republican leader lost.
No Sarah, you lost because you are just plain D U M B.
But don't be surprised these right wing tea baggers always have someone else to blame for their stupidity.

Palin's husband and father were separatists, she is a poorly educated leader from a town know as 'the meth capital of Alaska.

"Why did you use an easily guessed password question?" "There was no reason to keep that a secret."


You know that if the situation had been reversed, that one of her follower had hacked into Obama's site, she would have said 'what have ya got to hide?" She still talks the nonsense about him growing up with communists.

Palin has violated Copyright and Patients Laws.
Palin copied the title of her book from Ronald Reagan's autobiography.
Sarah Palin's Book -- "Going Rogue: An American Life"
Ronald Reagan's autobiography -- "An American Life".
This insane religious fanatic with values exactly identical to the 'Family Values' first invented by propaganda minister for Adolf Hitler, Joseph Goebbals.
Read the Nazi version in Mein Kampf, and her version, and except for hate of Jews every other item is EXACTLY identical.
I dislike Palin intensely, but this guy broke the law intentionally and deserved to be convicted. Next, they should go after the other high ranking official's son who entered a Louisiana congresswoman's federal offices with the intent to make illegal videos in hopes of embarrassing her for political gain. There's no difference between these jerks.

Okay, you can find similar demonstrations from terminal tards anywhere comments are allowed.  I just landed on these today. They, none of them,  are allowed at my bull roast.  I'm taking away their vote franchise tool.  It is ordered.

God does a better job

Today's friendly reminder
The environmental disaster was the cleanup ...
Goreons take notes

Six years after the cleanup, a study was conducted to determine ecological recovery in the sound. What researchers found was that the areas that were not cleaned were in better shape – with more wildlife and cleaner water and soil – than the areas that had been cleaned. The chemicals and high-pressure washing used to "clean" the area had destroyed the ecosystem in some parts of Prince William Sound.

This, I think,  pretty much captures the spirit of things.  From The Simpsons episode, "Bart After Dark."

An Itchy & Scratchy cartoon is interrupted with a news report that an oil tanker has crashed and spilled millions of gallons of oil on "Baby Seal beach". Lisa sees the report and asks Marge  if she can go and help save the wildlife. After some begging, Marge agrees and the two go to help out ....  . Marge and Lisa arrive at the beach, but discover that the ability to help the animals is reserved for celebrities. The two are put to work cleaning rocks, and soon abandon the job and drive home.
