I can’t think of a better tribute to Old Glory and ideals it represents than “Ragged Old Flag” by Johnny Cash.
I’ve been busy and haven’t been in a blogging mood over the last couple of days but I thought I’d point out a couple of great posts by David Harley and Randy Abrams at ESET’s Threat Center blog. They’re both about the Race to Zero contest being held during the Defcon 16 conference. What is […]
That’s what Mackubin Thomas Owens says in an OpEd piece in today’s Wall Street Journal. Gasoline prices are through the roof and Americans are angry. Someone must be to blame and the obvious villain is “Big Oil” with its alleged ability to gouge consumers and achieve unconscionable, “windfall” profits. Congress is in a vile mood, […]
To every Soldier, Sailor, Airman and Marine… Thank you and may God bless you and keep you safe.
I was going to post this as a reply to a commenter who said in part “…I fear if Americans don’t wake up and get involved this Congress [will] do what the terrorist could not…” but I thought I’d expand on it a little and make a post out of it. I don’t think its […]
I’ve been thinking about what I’d like a candidate for office this year to stand for… Here’s my list: A strong dollar – Over the last decade the dollar has fallen in value and we’re paying for it in the form of higher prices for food, oil and gas among other things. Strengthening the dollar […]
Here are two great columns from The Wall Street Journal. If you haven’t already read them you should. The first, The Republican Health-Care Surrender by Dick Armey details one of the biggest problems Republicans are facing… Their complete surrender on health care. I don’t want government run health care I have private health care insurance […]
It gives me no joy to say this but the Republican Party is headed for a fall… They’re going to lose the White House and more seats in the house and senate in November unless they get a clue. They’ve alienated the party’s conservative base, they have no agenda, no ideas, and no clue about […]
I first saw this Computerworld article several days ago and I forgot about while I was dealing with more pressing issues. But it popped up in my inbox again today saw I thought I’d put my two cents in. Personally, I don’t put much stock in much of what Consumer Reports says but I have […]
The only thing worse than a trip to the gas pump these days is listening to John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama talk about energy policy. John McCain and Hillary Clinton both say they’ll bring us relief at the pump with a temporary moratorium on the 18.4 cent per gallon federal gas tax. To […]
I wanted to write something about the Microsoft / Yahoo non merger on Saturday but I couldn’t come up with anything more than YAWN. I’m not really surprised that talks between the two companies broke down or that Microsoft withdrew its acquisition offer. The deal never made sense to me and to be honest I […]
Can we put an end to the recession talk at least for now? The last time I checked a recession was defined as two or more consecutive quarters of negative growth. So far we haven’t had a single quarter of negative growth so all this talk of a recession is, well, premature. Make no mistake […]
I installed Windows Vista Business SP1 on a couple of test PCs recently and I’ve been putting it and Office 2007 through their paces over the last couple of days. For the most part I’m happy with them… Vista’s Aero interface is such a radical departure from Windows XP that it takes a little getting […]
