Oompa Loompa for President?

I’m finding it really amazing that this extremely talented con-artist talks about running for the office of the POTUS and the press just eat it up. What next, Howard Stern for office? And don’t think I’m being negative by referring to someone as a con-artist; except for banks (who likes them anyway?) I don’t think […]

HP Nagware (DO NOT WANT)

I have not yet found where to turn off this annoying HP nagware. Anyone know where it lives? You’ll note that the two options are Bug me to death later. Activate the trial that you don’t want. Seriously HP and Norton, can’t you just get the hint? I am fine with losing all my data. […]

These people need to get arrested

Honestly, some people do need to be made into an object lesson. The couple’s lawyer, Paul W. Gardner of Baltimore, asserts that the Salahis had been “cleared, by the White House,” to be at the event, and so were not really “crashing.” Mr. Gardner declined a request to elaborate on his assertion.

You know how when you can’t sleep, your eyes sometimes wander to the digital clock on the night table? At some point everyone does that. It’s no good since you are not going to sleep, you are just watching the clock countdown. The whole night can go by that way repeating that same counter productive […]

Health care at it’s worst

The whole debate over health care makes me shake my head. Horror stories are told on both sides but this one has to strike a cord in anyone reading it. In a statement issued yesterday after it had approved the transplant, the company said the procedure “was outside the scope of the plan’s coverage.” “… […]

AOL picks on the wrong end user

You’ve got Blackmail! Nice that AOL picks on a WSJ writer. Too bad that AOL is not already out of business.

The President went on a date, get over it

President Obama took his wife on a date Saturday and some people are going nuts. The RNC I can understand since they are the “ZOMG we lost, now what?!” party. But regular folks who are in arms about this need to get a life.

He’s nuts, no way around it

Well, this is a Maverick move.  Or maybe Senator McCain is just nuts. “We haven’t heard hide nor hair of Sen. McCain in these negotiations,” said Schumer, chairman of the Senate Banking Committee. “He has not been involved except for an occasional, unhelpful statement, sort of thrown from far away, and the last thing we […]
