Dale’s Observations For 2010-06-25

Democrats simply cannot keep their hands off my wallet, and Republicans can't keep their hands off my penis.

Ummm…I mean…you know. #

Note toTexas GOP: if I'm not physically harming the person or property of a non-consenting adult, hows about you STFU? Limited government? #

Looking over the Texas GOP platform, I'm utterly unsurprised to see that Republicans are just as totalitarian as Democrats. #

HCR Redux: Chris Dodd says we'll have to wait until it's implemented before we know how the FinReg law will work. Surprises are fun! #

Dem official in WI calls for AZ boycott, says immigration law might be understandable if AZ was a border state. # Moron http://bit.ly/axIJci #

The iPhone 4 can have its signal blocked by the user's hand. Not that the Apple cultists care, but that's bad design. http://bit.ly/bkMfHE #

Russia's Duma considers giving the FSB, formerly the KGB, more sweeping powers. That's worked out so well in the past. http://bit.ly/9dyTyz #

ICANN is set to approve the .xxx domain for porn, something that should have been done a decade ago. http://bit.ly/c28Hw7 #

The home-buying tax credit not only inflated home sales artificially, it inflated the amount of fraud and abuse. http://bit.ly/aDqORx #

  • Got an axe to grind with people who prefer Apple products?
    It appears the problem is software related.

    • Not particularly, other than the community loyalty to Apple is so excessive that it gets a bit silly.

      • It (the loyalty) is probably an understandable overreaction in response to the folks at Microsoft who have generally been tone deaf to aesthetics, usability and simplicity.  When Apple finally started using Intel chips, I jumped ship and am very happy with the move.

    Um.. yeah…

    :-)

    You ave a point, though.  There is the famous saying about democracy being unable to survive the people learning that they can vote themselves a living.   Allow me to suggest an addition: it cannot survive the people learning that they can vote how their neighbors live.

      A good suggestion but about 50 years behind the curve from that little Russian gal…

    It would be grand, just grand, if that growth was from the private sector, rather than merely government spending portion of GDP. (Why government spending is considered PRODUCTION is a poser).
