Now battling incompetence and greed with government contractor who claims "he" is the problem.


Time to delete BAE Systems from the list of approved gov't contractors.

I wonder if there are any statues, carvings or paintings of native americans. Maybe totem poles? But this article does seem to raise a good point. It would be an interesting study to find out what cultures have found it necessary or important to idolize heroes, kings, etc. through basic destruction/modification of the environment.

While Egypts pyrimids would qualify, that was adding something to a basically empty desert, not defacing a natural structure for someone's glorification. Could this be predominantly a "western" concept, as progressives are wont to claim?

Endangered species?

Maybe we could get some in the Philippines that are predators of mosquitoes. But then maybe we would trade one problem for another.

Ummm! Looks like there might be a new minority group complaint forming. I'm sure that hiring based on gene screening, IQ, EQ, weight, and other health factors isn't enough for liberals, oops, I mean progressives. Now they will have to go after those with "unfavorable" signs. I wonder if conservatives are dominant in any particular groups that are mutually exclusive from progressives?

My prediction: China is fast becoming like pre-WWII Japan and hungers for natural resources that it's neighbors have within their borders. China, like the neighborhood bully, will not think twice about taking them, especially as the US military continues to be weakened by liberal politics of the Obama administration and the poor domestic economy.

The creation of smoldering fires around the world and an increase in US needs for oil imports while nothing has been done to reduce imports by developing domestic supplies means the US will remain in a weakened position for the foreseeable future.

Well, the Little Girl is due to go to the Veterans Memorial Medical Center tomorrow to begin her incarceration and await trial for charges of election fraud. All the while, President Arroyo is taking aim at removing Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona who was an unconstitutional appointee just before GMA left office.

This too will follow a cycle which fortunately for the Chinese has been a cycle created by others. They have the benefit of history to learn from and an established source of expertise, the US, the draw from. Creating this, innovating from scratch is a totally different ballgame. Completely different.

Having fast computers is one thing. Having them do work based on proven software in an environment that is supportable and sustainable is another totally different issue.

The Chinese, however, have their longterm goals, of which the Internet of Things will probably take a generation or more to achieve (e.g. 20-30 ys).

Fascinating, however, so many other advances have to happen in parallel to allow the ideas to all play together. Give it a couple more decades though ... and who knows?

WTF?

The UN? The United Negro? Who the Fuck is the UN? What do they have to do with US election laws?

Good Grief! If you aren't paying attention you might think we live in Europe, or some such place.

I just don't get it.

Missing the intent of the law for the letter of the law... the refuge of scoundrels. Just like ignoring the Constitution but when their ass is in the fire all of a sudden they pull out the Constitution (from their ass) in their own defense.

I think Gump had it right, "Stupid is as stupid does."

This article says more about the state of the American Electorate than anything. And to think, you don't even have to be a citizen to vote these days. Go figure!

This article reminds me of the line in the movie "A Few Good Men," when one Marine says to the other about why they were found guilty replies " .. because we forgot we were supposed to defend the weak."

SEAL's take this to the extreme going against some of the most evil people in the world. It is just a shame that politicians are many times too timid or let their own personal ambitions cloud their thinking is the use of these people and the rules of engagement they hamstring them with in the field.

Or several, to destroy a man. Doesn't help when he steps on his own crank trying to explain away the accusations. Sad, so sad.

People wait outside holding signs before Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain speaks at the scheduled opening of a local campaign headquarters on Saturday in Atlanta.
