The 411 on Rathergate

Mary Mapes’ book is out and she’s being torn apart across the blogosphere.

I think that everyone who was blogging a year ago did some blogging on Rathergate. I photoshopped this rather amusing image.

The point is, you couldn’t be a blogger and not blog about Rathergate. So… being called a hyperconservative that spread vitriol about Dan Rather is something I have to say I take offense at. If I were a hyperconservative, I wouldn’t be able to survive attending community college!

Why just today, my instructor was asked, “What if we want to give our speeches on a famous person?” and her response was, “Well you could do them on someone, like the president, but I don’t think any of us wants to hear about him.”

Did I go postal and injure or maim innocents? No.

I laughed along with the rest of the class. This, my friends, is the difference between a hyperconservative that spreads vitriol about people and a liberal moonbat.… [Read More]

IPod Nano Isn’t All That

So there you are…

… you’ve just spent 200$ on an iPod nano. You’ve been saving up your spare change for months debating on which mp3 player you were going to blow your hard-earned cash on. You play around with it at home for an hour or so, and set it down on your kitchen counter. When you come back, the screen is cracked and what’s worse.. Apple support, apparently doesn’t care?

I don’t know what all the hub-bub is about for sure. I just read the above article and visited the websites linked in that article. If either the article, or the website, are peddling true stories, I’ll be staying away from the iPod Nano, and I suggest you do the same.

Sort of like.. the gameboy advance when it came out…

Update: Apple has acknowledged this flaw in the iPod Nano and is offering a replacement for damaged units.… [Read More]

Roberts Confirmation.

I have to admit, I’m not a fan of Roberts on several levels. I don’t like that little is known about his political perspective. This is becoming increasingly important as the bench becomes mired more and more by the political leanings of the justices on the bench.

Some things about him are obvious though, he’s a conservative. He’s so conservative that it gives most good conservatives a bad name, if you listen to what the Democrats have to say about him. I find myself scoffing at those statements with the following rebuke; “Like this is a bad thing? What did they think Rehnquist was, Susan Sarandon?”

They weren’t unhappy with things as they stood under Rehnquist’s term, nor should they have been. Certainly, I also don’t believe that a vote to confirm Roberts is a vote against Roe vs. Wade. The Roe v. Wade decision, while politically charged, is hardly of such critical legal implication that it becomes worthy of note, this is particularly true when circumstances have become such that it is unlikely that Roberts will ever have to come to a decision on that particular matter.… [Read More]
