    After an 8 -11 start (2-5) in the Pac 10 conference, Mr. Bob DeCarolis, who’s the Athletic Director of Oregon State University, was considering weather to fire their Basketball Coach Craig Robinson. When word reached the Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter in Washington, $17 million of stimulus money was immediately dispatched to the University to save Basketball Coach Craig Robinson’s job. Thanks to Obama’s slush fund, Coach Craig Robinson’s job was saved. For those of you unfamiliar with Coach Robinson, he just so happens to be the brother in law of none other than our country's beloved President Obama, the...
  • Russia Today's rape apologia for Ched Evans reflects the country's attitude

    When Sheffield United footballer Ched Evans was sentenced to five years in jail last month for raping a 19-year-old woman, the backlash was immediate. Fellow footballers called the victim a "slag". Online commenters spewed vile hatespeak, accusing her of asking for it. Who can we now add to that list? The Kremlin's English-language propaganda channel, Russia Today. "Life sucks in a bad way if you happen to live in Britain," begins a column published on the channel's website in the wake of the Evans verdict. "Disclaimer: Only if you are a man of virile age. Being rich and hot-looking makes...

    The State of New Mexico has stopped honoring carry permits from 13 other states in the last two weeks according to a report on Handgunlaw.us. I don't see much good that will come of this especially for the residents of the Land of Enchantment. Notice: New Mexico has stopped honoring 13 other states Permit/Licenses in the last Couple weeks. Many of those states will stop honoring a New Mexico Permit/License. If you are a New Mexico Permit holder Handgunlaw.us advises you to call ahead to make sure your New Mexico Permit is honored. Below is the list of states that...

    If the entertainment industry has taught me anything, it’s that no film or popular TV program is as popular the second time as it was in its first-run release. In other words, there is nothing new in a re-run. Please bear with me on this. Let’s take the recent re-release of Star Wars Episode 1 for example. In 1999, when the film was first released, it caused a lot of excitement, fanfare, and marketing campaigns that re-energized the Star Wars franchise. In 2012, when the film was re-released under the 3-D format, the urge to see it under a new...
  • Tech Vanity: Anyone head of UNIX "VI" (NOT the editor, but a very modern version of that OS)?

    I've been interviewing with some tech firms and one of them wanted to know how versed I was with "UNIX VI." Well I said I knew vi like the back of my hand, but no they seem to mean a modern version of the OS! Help??? Wikipedia, which usually keeps up quite well with technology developments, was of no use, nor was Googling. I don't see any "UNIX VI" on any UNIX lineage chart. Yes there was a Unix version 6 but that is an ancient thing. If there was a follow on to System V maybe it would be...

    I received a tip from someone about how checks can be purchased online with the Obama design on them. He thought I could do something with it... At first I thought I would make a graphic spoofing it, but then I thought of something that was more unusual, and potentially more fun. It's an interactive Flash graphic (my first one, hopefully not the last). So I can't post here, I can only put it put it up at the original post (here.)

    Peace has a day in Court For those of you who know me and have been following my story, you know that part of my resistance to the US Empire is my refusal to pay income taxes. This morning (April 19th), a new episode unfolded in my ongoing struggle with the IRS and the Empire the agency is nestled in. I was subpoenaed to appear in the 9th Circuit court of the US Federal Court system in Sacramento, California—my state’s capitol. For background, I have had two meetings with the IRS agent assigned to my case where I expressed to...

    Daily Telegraph (UK) ^ | April 24th, 2012 | Nile Gardiner
    I’ve often described Barack Obama as a European-style politician. He has the kind of big government mindset that would fit comfortably in Brussels or Paris. If he had been born in Provence instead of Hawaii, I’m sure he would have gravitated to the Elysée Palace or challenged Herman Van Rompuy for the presidency of the European Council. He has been the most Eurofederalist of American presidents, actively backing the European Project—to the extent that his vice president, Joe Biden, even declared Brussels to be “the capital of the free world”.It is not hard to see why François Hollande, the Socialist...

    MOST little girls grow up playing with Barbie dolls. Some even want to look like them. One 21-year-old has become one, or so she says. Valeria Lukyanova has become an internet sensation in her home country of Russia, claiming on her blog to be the most famed woman on the Russian-language internet. Her doll-like features, long blonde hair and ‘perfect’ body make her look like a real life Barbie. In fact, with her tiny waist, she bears such a resemblance to the famed plastic doll that cynical web users have been speculating about whether or not she is real. In...

    WASHINGTON (NNPA) – It was a telephone call that Tracy Martin, father of the 17-year-old African-American killed in Sanford, Fla. by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman, worried that he would never receive. Forty-five days after an unarmed Trayvon Martin had been killed while walking back to a home he was visiting after purchasing a bag of Skittles and a can of Arizona iced tea, Special Prosecutor Angela Corey called to notify Trayvon’s parents that Zimmerman had finally been arrested and charged with second-degree murder. “I was very emotional when I got the call from Ms. Corey,” Tracy Martin recounted. “I...
