To start off, I am sure Malkin and Rush and all those others truly feel that McCain is not a "true conservative" and that is fine. They have their right to that opinion, but the idea that since they feel that way tranlates into conservatives all over the country feeling that way is just plain stupid and it also seems a little fringie to me. A little too MoveOn.org.
McCain was never my guy, but I will be happy to vote for him.
and so I leave you with this classic Friday video also here is McCain's website in case you are interested in checking out his endorsements
A lot of federal money goes to Berkeley too and to Cal Berkeley in particular. Maybe the govt. should give Berkeley the boot and stop sending money. Seems appropriate to me.
Also, I heard that Berkeley wants to treat recruiting offices like they do adult video stores.
No closer than 600' to residential areas
Can't be across the street from a park or a church
Stuff like that.

First Baghdad and now Jerusalem. Am I going crazy or does this whole global climate, garotzuva, warming bullshit just seemed to be going out the fucking window? Is it even a story anymore? Is this what global warming is supposed to look like? A rise in sea levels after everything is done FUCKING FREEZING?!?! I am telling you, I am done with this topic too.

OK, so I made the hotdog part up, but not the 1-150 part. That is for real.
I mean come on! Does anyone believe that? Didn't we go through this with Dyslexia in the 80's and ADD in the 90's? Needless to say, I am skeptical of their numbers. Anyway, Fumento has something to say about Autism and injections.
Old article, but I just found it.

and it looks as if Obama is asking the same thing. (when you watch the video, drink everytime Hillary has the "I am annoyed" look on her face)
All this squabbling is just beautiful.

I do BluRay and HDDVD player development for a living. If you buy a BluRay or HDDVD set-top player, my software may be inside of it.
Anyway, there's this whole hullabaloo over which format will win. Its looking like its going to be BluRay. Last week at CES (the big Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas every year), Warner Brothers announced that they will stop producing HDDVD disks and will just produce BluRay. That same day Microsoft (who's heavily in the HDDVD camp) along with Toshiba and other HDDVD big wigs cancelled a major press conference and training seminar.
Someone created this video as a spoof. The original Downfall is good. See it if you have the chance and can handle a depressing movie.
For some reason embed is not working for this video.

The second to last paragraph is money. Clinging to hope are we?

"What should be controversial in the proposed revisions to Title 24 is the
requirement for what is called a "programmable communicating thermostat" or PCT.
Every new home and every change to existing homes' central heating and air
conditioning systems will required to be fitted with a PCT beginning next year
following the issuance of the revision. Each PCT will be fitted with a
"non-removable " FM receiver that will allow the power authorities to increase
your air conditioning temperature setpoint or decrease your heater temperature
setpoint to any value they chose. During "price events" those changes are
limited to +/- four degrees F and you would be able to manually override the
changes. During "emergency events" the new setpoints can be whatever the
power authority desires and you would not be able to alter them."
I have heard people throw out idiotic numbers like, 650,000 dead to 1,000,000 dead and it totally sickened me. Those figures were clearly used to fulfill an agenda, not to inform.
Lets put it into perspectve. As Stevil has pointed out to me, we lost 970,000 civilians and soldiers in the American civil war. Roughly 50,000 in one battle alone.
Japan lost 580,000 civilians in WWII and we dropped two nuclear bombs on them. And to have the left say more were lost in Iraq... Well, you draw your own conclusions.

DEAR ABBY: I recently landed a dream job as a nanny for a wealthy family. When I say "wealthy," it's probably an understatement. These people have a big-screen theater in their home, a personal trainer over here four times a week, matching Lexus SUVs, gadgets galore and the biggest refrigerator I have ever seen -- not to mention the countless other real estate properties they have in California, Aspen and New York.
Coming from a more consumer-conscious background, I grew up recycling and shopping at thrift stores. I use alternate forms of transportation and refuse to "keep up with the Joneses."
How do I get this family, especially the children, to recycle, donate and think globally (i.e. sweatshops and child labor) without coming off as preachy? They are nice people, but these things have never been a part of their universe. -- RECYCLIN' IN COLORADO
DEAR RECYCLIN': Your employers appear to be comfortably ensconced in their lifestyle bubble, which is an alternate reality from most of ours. However, you can positively influence the thinking of their children, and the most effective way to do it is to teach them by example.

1. Quietly and calmly open up your laptop case.
2. Remove your laptop.
3. Start up
4. Make sure the guy who is annoying you, can see the screen.
5. Close your eyes, tilt your head up to the sky & move your lips as if praying

Seriously, I'm not to keen on sex offenders and whatnot, but the fact that they could just go ahead and start screening for those things without letting anyone know about it is beyond me.
They should just have a naked girl stand at the door and ask you to take your penis out if you gamble too much.

"The neighborhood was wired properly as though it were part of a modern First World country. Gone all of a sudden were the hideously tangled rat's nest of wires and cables that make up most of Iraq's electrical grid."
