Barack and Bill

October 30, 2008 at 6:17 pm | Posted in Politics | Leave a comment

A sign of a good President is someone who surrounds himself with good people, people often smarter and more knowledgeable than the President himself. Bush has valued personal loyalty over knowledge, politics over policy, and short-term gain over our long-term future. For Obama to be accused of setting up a cult of personality is simply not true – just listen to Bill Clinton explaining how Obama dealt with the current financial crisis:

Meanwhile, John McCain suspends his campaign, threatens to fire some people, and claims the fundamentals of the economy are still strong. Erratic and irresponsible and very dangerous for our country.

Republicans – Self-Centered and Ruthless

October 24, 2008 at 10:22 pm | Posted in Politics | Leave a comment

The latest GOP desperation tactic has a Republican woman claiming that she was attacked by a black man who carved a “B” on her cheek:

Todd

Later, she confessed that she had made up the entire event and cut herself. The “B” can be read by the person doing the carving, instead of being read by another person. This reminds me of an article last year saying that those who write as shown above are self-centered and ruthless, like the party Ashley Todd represents.

If the Republicans win this election, this is the kind of haircut taxpayers will be getting:

 Palin haircut

I prefer the Democratic haircut:

 Edwards hair

In reality, Supercuts is too expensive for me and I get my hair done by Jose the Mexican for $7

RNC shells out $150K for Palin fashion – Jeanne Cummings – Politico.com

iPhone Naysayers Eating Crow

MacDailyNews has a nice listing of all the “pundits” and “analysts” who predicted that the iPhone would not sell 10 million units by the end of 2008, let alone make Apple into the #3 vendor of mobile phones behind Nokia and Samsung. While the latter two probably have over 20 models between them, Apple only sells two versions of the iPhone. So much for the advantage of choice in the mobile handset market…

Republicans Admit to Illegal Voting Scheme

October 21, 2008 at 10:16 pm | Posted in Politics | Leave a comment

Since the Republicans don’t actually have an economic revival plan except to continue the discredited policy of the last eight years, they have resorted to slimy tactics, from slandering Barack Obama’s character to trying to disenfranchise homeless families in Michigan and other states. Today, the GOP actually admitted of their plans to deny people the vote – the evidence against them was bad enough that they decided to settle instead of dragging it through the courts past Election Day.

Financial Armageddon Jokes

A collection of jokes related to the global financial mess.

The good news is that President Bush met with some small business owners at a soda shop in San Antonio, Texas, this week. The bad news is that the small business owners are now General Motors, General Electric, and Century 21.

I hope Morgan Stanley falls within the next few days. We will finally put the nail on the coffin of a rapacious company whose namesake started the Federal Reserve almost one hundred years ago.
