Got to work today and the power was out, so I had to wait on the power company to come out and restore it. I get a phone call from our main office and they want me to go to my bosses office and check on a fax machine, they said it wouldn't pick up. I tell them that the power is out here and she asks; "It won't work without power?", I tell her not unless they've made magical fax machines that work without being plugged into the wall. I'm a computer technician not a miracle worker.

A Vero Beach, Florida man was arrested for the following.
The report said the man would not let the woman out of the vehicle, so she threw his drink out of the car. In response, the man allegedly grabbed her arm and smashed the cheeseburger into her face. The pair got out of the car, and authorities say the man again took the McDonald's sandwich and put it on her face.
Now the report doesn't say if this was a simple assault charge or assault with a deadly weapon, but given his weapon of choice, he should have stayed in jail.

On an open microphone at the National Governors conference Pennsylvania's Governor Ed Rendell had this to say about Janet Napolitano, President-Elect Obama's choice for Homeland Security Secretary:
Rendell: Janet's perfect for that job. Because for that job, you have to have no life. Janet has no family. Perfect. She can devote, literally, 19-20 hours a day to it
Campbell Brown, CNN host of "No Bias, No Bull" made it commentary on her show.
Campbell Brown, you shouldn't be surprised, as has been said before women are more closely scrutinized than men. Try wearing the same dress to work two days in a row. When Sarah Palin was running as VP pick on the Republican ticket, the media and left wing blogs were all a twitter about how she was going to handle being a new mother and do her job. Now when was the last time anyone had any concern whether a male politician could be a father and do his job? I'm going to guess, almost never.

There are around 20,851,820 people in Texas. If half of the people in Texas sent me one penny, we could give MD Anderson $104,259.10.
I have spoken with M.D. Anderson. They are aware of my fundraiser. I have started collecting from my family and friends. I have written down all their names in a spiral notebook to send with the final amount so they can see all the people that are willing to help their cause. This is what I am asking from the wonderful people of Texas. Please send me one penny (more if you would like) in an envelope with your first and last name to the following address: Fundraiser, 209 S. Virginia Ave. , Eastland, Texas 76448

As part of its federal life preserver, Citigroup will stop dividend payments for the next three years and curb certain executive compensation.
Ok Good start so far, doing something to stop the bleeding, good, good.
But the banking giant and other recipients of taxpayer largess — AIG, the insurance behemoth, for instance — will continue to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to put their corporate logos on sports stadiums and events, ABC News says.
Now see, here's where you lose my support, if you "need" money to keep yourself afloat you don't go spending money "willy nilly". Ok Congress...how does the Citigroup and AIG bailout smell now? Kinda fishy if you ask me.

I can honestly say I will not miss seeing him on the show, I know that he contributed to the shows success but I just did not care for him.
Now can we petition Kirsten Powers to be the new co-host? She's a liberal, but at least she one of the few intelligent ones.

All I can say is, thank you President Bush and the United States Military.

Foxnews has the complete story, but here is a little tease.
Two days later, on Friday, General Motors Corp. announced that it is terminating the leases on two of its five private jets in an effort "to cut costs."
Well, they have to keep some of the jets for emergencies don’t you know. I love the people claiming that we must save the auto industry because of all the people that will lose their pensions and health benefits. It's hard to feel sorry for them when you don't get either at your job. Hey I got an idea, how about the unions compromise on some ways to cut costs and make some cars that people will actually buy.

Okay, so this is what I think. If many of the lives of inner city youth don't change much or even get worse under a President Obama, they may become more bitter, and angry and may be more inclined to blame others for their misfortune. Well you can't just sit around and wait for something to happen to you. If you do then that something might not be so good. Then if some lives are indeed changed under an Obama Presidency, he will be looked upon as a great inspiration, and for good reason. He can be a great inspiration, but the rest of it has to be up to the individual. These success stories will place Obama on a pedestal so high even my become higher that Martin Luther King.
Then there will be those that succeed in spite of an Obama Presidency. These people will look to themselves and others and finally obtain the measure of success they desired. These will be those self made people that will succeed no matter who is in office. They will understand what the true meaning of the American Spirit means. That ANYONE with the drive and ambition and spirit to succeed often do no matter their circumstances. It's my hope that more of these successful people arise. These are the people that make up the bulk of Americas success stories.

Some of the numbers were real Social Security numbers already assigned to people elsewhere. And in some cases, the state's educator certification office unknowingly used the bogus numbers to run criminal background checks on the new hires, most of whom were brought in to teach bilingual classes.
The practice was described in an internal report issued in September by the district's investigative office, which looked into the matter after receiving a tip. The report said the Texas Education Agency learned of the fake numbers in 2004 and told DISD then that the practice "was illegal."
Did you get that? They had to be TOLD that the practice was illegal! These are employees of a SCHOOL district. At the very least someone in that organization is complicit in identity theft. The Dallas ISD, your Texas Idjits of the Day.
I've continually thought and said that an Obama Presidency will be interesting to watch but I'm concerned that there will be many things that he can do that will be irreversible and very damaging to our country. I guess all we can do is wait and see now.

RINOs are Fedzilla punks who feign support for conservative principles only when it serves their political interest. RINOs are also known for their moderate positions such as supporting tax increases, federal “bailouts”, “comprehensive immigration reform”, advocating more counterproductive gun control that guarantee more innocent victims, opposing the death penalty, and growing and sustaining Fedzilla and all its toxic mongrels by going along with the liberals. RINOs have forgotten President Ronald Maximus Regan's admonition that government is the problem, not the solution.
Go read the whole thing it's worth it. Go Ted!

Jay Tea has an excellent post on this.
