Barney Frank - Abject Failure

Barney Frank will be stepping down after this year. Thank goodness! Just watch this video, from 2008 where then President Bush warned Congress of the problems with Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Self righteous buffoon Barney Frank objected, and matter of fact saw no issues with either one. Now we know the rest of the story.

Herman Cain for President in 2012!

It is about time a candidate for President talk honestly and open and directly to the heart of problems. We would truly be a blessed nation if Cain was able to secure the Office of President. I believe that he could heal the past racism due to our history of slavery, lack of black citizen rights in the 60s, and current economic differences between whites and blacks. What a true American hero, who is ready to stand up and fight for America and American values. God Bless Herman Cain!

Interesting Indictment of Jobs' Actual Performance at Apple

One never wants to trample someone who is deceased, however, I do like TRUTH. I like truth even if it hurts you. Not many people do, and most run and hide from the truth, especially if it condemns them to improper behavior. In this article from, authored by Ryan Tate, we see deep inside the real Apple computer, and we wonder how this kind of behavior and treatment of individuals can be allowed to happen in the first place.

Before he was deposed from Apple the first time around, Jobs already had a reputation internally for acting like a tyrant. Jobs regularly belittled people, swore at them, and pressured them until they reached their breaking point. In the pursuit of greatness he cast aside politeness and empathy. His verbal abuse never stopped.

Jobs had his share of personal shortcomings, too. He has no public record of giving to charity over the years, despite the fact he became wealthy after Apple's 1980 IPO and had accumulated an estimated $7 billion net worth by the time of his death. After closing Apple's philanthropic programs on his return to Apple in 1997, he never reinstated them, despite the company's gusher of profits.

Steve Jobs created many beautiful objects. He made digital devices more elegant and easier to use. He made a lot of money for Apple Inc. after people wrote it off for dead. He will undoubtedly serve as a role model for generations of entrepreneurs and business leaders. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing depends on how honestly his life is appraised.

The truth is always better than fiction! Read on!

Steve Jobs RIP

Apple founder Steve Jobs has passed away. Many tributes are going out to him, and no wonder. Steve Jobs is the ultimate American entrepreneur. He is truly a model by which we should all admire. He founded a company with bold ideas, and little money. He worked very hard to climb the ladder, creating products and a company that even in hard times, makes huge profits. He created a company that provides products that an entire industry copies. He did it all his way, regardless of nay sayers. Even while he was very sick, he worked hard, and continued to lead a company that has gotten better, larger, yet more nimble, and at the same time more financially secure. Even though he was loved by liberals, his ideas were hardly even close to liberal idealism. Liberals believe that everyone else owes them something, but Steve Jobs didn't buy that nonsense, he knew you had to reach for what you wanted, work hard, and never say never. He was a true conservative, a real modern American! Steve, thanks for making computing fun, and bringing multimedia to our fingertips.

I'm encouraging like-minded citizens like you to take a stand

the overt and intentional subversion of our Constitution,
overstepping the boundaries of their law-based authority,
the advancement and promotion of a socialist agenda,
the massive expansion of a federal government through agencies
and czars whose goal is to "fundamentally transform America!"

There is no obligation to participate. Please join me.

Hollywood Flunky Copy Cats = Paramount!

It just came to my attention that Hollywood, namely Paramount Pictures, has decided to remake Footloose. This is the classic movie that stars Kevin Bacon as a city slicker who moves to a small town, to face a sad fact that dancing is illegal. He fights to legalize the dancing, and tries to convince civic leaders why they should side with him. This was a great feel good movie. I left the theater wanted to dance (that says alot for me who has 2 left feet). So Paramount decides to remake the old movie, with new characters and similar if not exact same old story. I ask why? Can't Paramount come up with any new material? Why remake old movies into new movies? I know it is dollars, but this strategy won't last for long. Why not just take the old original movie and re-release it, saving production time and schedules. They could digitize the old movie, clean it up, and re-release it. Just seems silly to me to redo everything. Come on Hollywood come up with some original ideas. You could remake Wizard of OZ (yet again) and use the great special effects from George Lucas.

Tea Party Under Attack

I just signed a petition standing with the Tea Party against the Left's hostile attacks. The Left has resorted to calling the Tea Party "terrorists" and calling for Tea Party "SOBs" to be "taken out." But in reality the "Tea Party" is you and me -- ordinary Americans who want our liberties restored.

I'm staking a stand to oppose such attacks. Please go here to sign your petition and request your free "I Am The Tea Party" key ring tag:

Footage from Tsunami in Japan - March 11 2011

This footage is somehwat scary, and so you need to be warned that this could spark fear or anxiety. On the other hand, it is a documented record of what happened after the earthquake in Japan, and interesting to view in the safety of ones home.

Yu Muroga was doing his job making deliveries when the 11 March 2011 earthquake hit in Japan. Unaware, like many people in the area, of how far inland the Tsunami would travel, he continued to drive and do his job. The HD camera mounted on his dashboard captured not only the earthquake, but also the moment he and several other drivers were suddenly engulfed in the Tsunami. He escaped from the vehicle seconds before it was crushed by other debris and sunk underwater. His car and the camera have only recently been recovered by the police. The camera was heavily damaged but a video expert was able to retrieve this footage.

Shawn Michaels - Pro Wrestling Legend - Interview

WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels was in New York City last week making the media rounds to promote a new line of hunting-related video games. Michaels made a stop by the studio of hip hop news radio station Hot 97 and did a sit-down interview with Peter Rosenberg.

Times Atlas of the World Caught in Global Warming Lie!

Recent satellite images of Greenland make it clear that there are in fact still numerous glaciers and permanent ice cover where the new Times Atlas shows ice-free conditions and the emergence of new lands,' they say in a letter that has been sent to the Times. Others have pointed out that if 15 percent of Greenland ice cover had been lost, then sea levels would have risen by 1 meter.

IRS and Tax Return

The IRS sent back my tax return. Seems as though I answered one of the questions wrong.

In answer to the question, 'Do you have any dependents?',

I listed:

12 million illegal immigrants, 10 million crack heads, 20 million unemployed bastards too lazy to work, 140,000 people in 133 penal establishments, 2 million leftovers from Katrina, half of Mexico, all of the Senate, and most of the House of Representatives.

Apparently, this wasn't an acceptable answer.

Apple Sues Samsung - Blocks Galaxy Tab

So if Apple is suing, it goes to help support the idea that this is their main competition, and probably as good or better than the iPad. It would be worth a look when shopping for a tablet PC.

New Toyota Tacoma for 2012

Looks like while some major players are bowing out of the mid size truck market, Toyota has upped the stakes. This newly redesigned Tacoma is an eye catcher, with some major mods to the front end and interior. I really like the changes, and would definitely consider this one. Toyota vehicles have always seemed very ugly to my tastes, but not this time. I am hoping that the cab is roomy and the power train has more of the first word, power!

Macs No Longer Beginner Friendly

This Extreme Tech article says it all, Macs may no longer be beginner user friendly. They may no longer be the envy of personal computer users, and they may no longer be the unattainable pie in the sky. Thankfully we can all keep Snow Leopard until Apple changes this error. Or we can load Windows on the PC based Macs and shrug off this fanciful test down the Apple road.

Happy 30th Birthday DOS

Happy 30th Birthday to Dos, the OS (if you can call it that, ok I guess we will) that I learned how to program on, and which gave me a hobby that turned into a career. Thanks DOS, IBM and Microsoft.

Another Anti Mac OSX Lion Article - How To Make Lion More Like Snow Leopard

I am actually shocked, many articles and blog posts are cropping up about how to make Mac OSX LION v10.7 look and act more like Snow Leopard v10.6. I wonder how many people are disappointed with their $30 investment, just to allow Apple to make money and get the OS right by trial and error in a few service packs from now. I changed from a PC to the Mac over 4 years ago. I was and still am a Windows PC System Admin. My experience on the Mac has mostly been positive, and to this point I think a great decision. It seems to be motivated by profit, instead of the noble reasons of making things better for us all. However, during these times when Apple decides it wants to force interface changes or OS changes that really shake the basic core foundation of what computing is all about, I question the decision. I like the Mac OSX because it is based on a very strong underlying UNIX operating system, with normally clean multitasking, and robust well designed applications. I also really enjoy the normal PC mouse and interface, with Windows, that I control, versus Apple controlling them for me. I guess I just like freedom. The Mac has provided me freedom from political decisions in the computer world for 4 years. But LION is a purely political OS decision that strives to force us into an upgrade box that is controlled by the mother ship. I don't like that. I guess I should have expected that from a corporation run by Liberals, which wants to tell it's customers what is best, instead of having the customers tell the company. I can cite many recent decisions in the last year that seem to ignore what we want. Many will say that LION is the future. Maybe on a cell phone or MP3 player, but not on my desktop. I choose to think for myself, and use what I want, when I want to use it. You should also use what you want, and not be forced into upgrades for eye candy sakes. I wonder what will happen when the iPod and iPhone die off, as all things eventually do, and Apple will have to succumb to what the customers want once again. But will the customers care? Microsoft has a HUGE opportunity right now to finish off the Mac. Lets see if they take advantage of this bungle by Jobs.

Mac OSX Lion is slower than Snow Leopard

If Microsoft were to unleash a slower operating system on the masses, even if for a measly $30, there would be class action lawsuits. But the mesmerized youth who have been sold by slick marketing and cheap price tags, insist on spending money for slow software, and then attempt to disable features they don't want, that if left at the Snow Leopard version, would be $30 cheaper, and basically be the same operating system feature wise. I don't mind people upgrading for a reason, but this upgrade for the sake of giving Apple more money in their slush fund doesn't make sense to me. Take a look at the comparison, Snow Leopard wins in all but one comparison for speed.

Beavis and Butthead Returns October 2011

In a hailed fanfare of support (from me at least) it was announced that Beavis and Butthead will return to MTV in October. Read on for the scoop!

Mac OSX Lion Review

Wow, this is a great review of the new Mac OSX Lion Operating System. The author, John Siracusa, knows his stuff, and provides you an in depth look at new features and highly technical details about how the OS operates, the file structure, and more. Not just another internet fluff piece or fanboy post. This is a must see for any technical expert, Mac fan, or person interested in Macs at all. Matter of fact, even if you are a PC user, this will lend insight into the Mac world. I love the questions posed for this $30 upgrade! I myself don't really want my Mac to be an iPhone, and my question is, if you can turn off all the IOS functions, why get it at all? You decide!

This YouTube video demonstrates a totally new printing system, that can print whole 3D parts. This idea could revolutionize the way we look at parts and objects, and could allow us to create unknown future devices that were once very difficult to master and fabricate. Check out this Video from Z Corporation. Groundbreaking!

When You're Holding a Hammer Everything Looks Like a Nail

This is an interesting site. Word is that this teacher has been fired for making an anti-Obama song. But the American spirit is alive and well, he turned this around and has made a commercial venture out of it. Check out the site, sign up, and listen to this GREAT country song, with real meaning. I love it!

Sarah Palin Bus Tour

Wow, take a listen to Sarah Palin in the 2 YouTube videos (interviewed by Fox), live. No teleprompter here, just good old optimism, and patriotism. It was a real pleasure to hear Sarah Palin describe the problems facing the nation, and the inactivity that our current regime in Washington actually does and does not accomplish. Worth your time to listen, and decide for yourself. Decide if you want a good economy, or more of the same over the last 2 years. Scroll down for the interviews, "On The Record".

Sci-Fi Epic "Priority One": BFX Original Short

This is an awesome, custom made, Sci-Fi original film. Indy Mogul not only does great stuff, but they will also show you how to do what they did. Very nice script as well as special effects for a 2 day shoot and small production. Looks almost like a real TV show.

Macho Man Randy Savage Passes Away

One of my favorite Wrestling personalities, Macho Man Randy Savage passed away last week. He was a dominant character in the 80's boom in Pro Wrestling, and was responsible for high flying and dare devil wrestling as seen today in the ring. He was one of only 2 people that would jump off the top rope onto an opponent. Today this standard created by Macho Man, is expected of all superstars in wrestling.

Obama's Birth Certificate - Fake or Real?

Alot sure has been happening around the world, Bin Laden dead, Japanese Tsunami and Nuclear Reactor troubles, Terror Alerts high, and Obama Birth Certificate. Of the latter, take a look at this supposed actual Birth Certificate. It is obviously edited, though I can not speak for it being fake or real, if it is doctored, it can not be valid. The background is layered on, and the original background removed. I have to ask why? After all this time, a few years, Obama releases something and it looks like crap. Obviously it is doctored, but why, and why release something of such poor quality? Why not a scan of the actual original, undoctored? That is the question? What is this rogue President hiding behind?

Gino's is BACK, Coming to Towson MD

The famed local landmark restaurant, Gino's, is making a comeback. The 1st store is already built in King of Prussia, PA. Now there are plans to build in Towson Maryland. Gino‘s was founded in 1957 by two former Baltimore Colt football players: Alan Ameche, Captain Gino Marchetti and their long time friend, Louis C. Fischer. What a treat to again have one of those Gino Giants!

Commodore 64 Coming Back Again!

The famous Commodore 64 is being redone, as a special commemorative computer release for the 30th anniversary, it would seem. Take a look at the pictures and commentary from CNET. A DVD burner, and modern USB ports are included, along with HD video output for today's high def TVs. Nice piece of nostalgia for the serious C64 fan. This is the computer that started it all.

Update: Here is detailed information on the Commodore 64x computer that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Prices are $250 to $895 for the loaded model.

IBM Super Computer at DOE - So what?

I see all kinds of articles like this. Seems IBM has developed a Super Duper World's Fastest computer, for the Department of Energy. Wow. Ok.. Now so what? Can it run Mac OSX? Can it even run Windows 7? Can you do your taxes on it? Alot of stats are thrown at us, like how many teraflops it can do. Ok, but is that on real data? Is the computer actually useful? I never get answers to my questions in any high tech articles. They always want to bore us to death with speed calculations and teraflop numbers. How about real world features? My Mac, for instance, can capture video from an external VHS source, or I am able to run every single app on my Mac simultaneously, every one of my 204 apps. It is fun, try it! I also like pushing the envelope on the PC world. I believe the more apps that are running and open, are a real test of performance. Hmm, or maybe of quickly can an email be sent, or received. How about how quickly a single app opens? These are real world challenges. Ok so the IBM system is fast, but is it practical, and useful? Lets see that in an article for once. By the way, it won't be operational until 2012. Geez, talk about vapor ware.,2845,2380375,00.asp

Sarah Palin's Teleprompter is Smarter!

Thats right, seems Obama got the short end of the stick, his teleprompter is not as brilliant as Sarah's.

See why Sarah Palin's teleprompter is smarter, and has a better view of America's enduring strength!
