Elections Junk Mail

    πŸ“‚ Politics     #     πŸ—¨ No Comments

With the electronic age and all, I don't check my mailbox that often, possibly once a week, if that. I have unsubscribed from allΒ junk mail and I get all my bills via email. Today I was a more than annoyed when I opened my mailbox after a long hiatus and found it overflowing with political — Continue reading Β»

Dialogue With USA, Bad Idea… For Iran

    πŸ“‚ Politics     # ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

The latest on the nuclear stale-mate with Iran is a report suggesting that Iran's imminent and reform-minded administration may be interested in direct talks with the US. I am no fan of the Iranian regime but a much lesser fan of the American foreign policy. America has proven time and time again that it can — Continue reading Β»

Prostitution, So What?

Once again the American legal hypocrisy rears its ugly head to punish a bunch of adults for doing something it should be no one's business. (β€˜Zumba Madam’ Allegedly Used Maine Dance Studio As Brothel and Made Videos of Customers - The Daily Beast.) A group of men up in Maine paid for sex and now — Continue reading Β»

Apple Discrimination

    πŸ“‚ Computers,Politics     # , , ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

A few weeks ago my children dragged me into the local mall's Apple store, kicking and screaming where I bought them each a Macbook, a cheap Linux knock-off in a shiny skin. I am a devout Apple-hater and have been so since 1988 when I had to write a LISP program on a Macintosh desktop. — Continue reading Β»

"All I know is I’m a sinner, and that God has forgiven me of my sins." saysΒ Rev. Franklin Graham. It's true. God whispers that in his ears every night. He also tells him that Obama is a Moslem and is hell-bound. Thank you reverend for sharing such spiritual revelations with us. Now where do I — Continue reading Β»

Amazon fires California affiliates

This is old news by now, but fresh on the heels of firing its Connecticut affiliates, Amazon just terminated its California affiliates program in protest over the new state law requiring it to collect sales taxes on purchases. The law may be fair or unfair, but Amazon could have easily complied, as it does reluctantly — Continue reading Β»

Handling Illegal Workers Problem

    πŸ“‚ Law,Politics     # ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

This is a perfect example (link at bottom) of how the illegal immigration problem should be handled. Charge the businesses that hire them. These businesses not only hurt the nation but also abuse the illegal workers themselves. What's there to be gained by arresting and detaining a bunch of illegals? These people don't have much — Continue reading Β»

Middle-Class Squeeze

    πŸ“‚ Financial,Politics     # , ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

I haven't looked at the details of the latest tax agreement reached between Obama and the Republicans, but judging by its face value, it's yet another jab at the middle-class who's always the punching bag of everyone else. So let's get this straight. The super-rich get to keep their unfair tax advantages squirreling away their — Continue reading Β»
