Perspective

***I commented a couple of times yesterday to a post on Facebook regarding Mitt Romney wanting to abolish the National Endowment of the Arts. She "hates" him for it and can't see how anyone would vote for him. Really? The middle east is burning, our economy is in a shambles, our national debt is to the point where the deficit number is so large none of us can really fathom it, our unemployment rate is twice what it was when Obama took office, his foreign policy has made the U.S. a laughingstock around the world, he snubbed our largest ally in the middle east, yet had time for a fundraiser and a visit to David Letterman days after our Libyan ambassador was brutally murdered and dragged through the streets....and she's worried about the NEA? *I* don't see how any thinking person could possibly want four more years of abject failure from this president. It's hard for me to believe the race is as close as it is.

***Okay, *this* is sickening, and just another example of Obama's narciccism:


Yep, they're really using it.

***National Debt? He pretends not to know when asked by a vacuous David Letterman:

“A lot of politicians are dishonest, but Barack Obama may be in a league by himself. He appeared on the David Letterman show last night, and Letterman asked him about the national debt (somewhat surprisingly). Obama’s answer was a masterpiece of prevarication. He described how the debt originated, and claimed, falsely, that he inherited a $1 trillion deficit. In fact, this country had never run a deficit anywhere near $1 trillion until FY 2009, the first year of the Obama administration. (And, no, Bush isn’t to blame for it; the Democratic Congress waited until Obama was in office to pass the vast majority of the bloated spending for that fiscal year.) Letterman, to his credit, went on to ask Obama how much the national debt actually is. Obama evidently knew that if he said $16 trillion his audience would be horrified, so, incredibly, he pretended not to know! You have to see it to believe it.”

***Global warming, huh? Antarctic sea ice sets another record.

Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded on day 256 of the calendar year (September 12 of this leap year). Please, nobody tell the mainstream media or they might have to retract some stories and admit they are misrepresenting scientific data.

***University of Tennessee refuses to ban pre-game prayers. Good for them.

These claims of how it "ostracizes" nonbelievers and makes them feel "out of place" are totally bogus. They might talk one or two students into saying that, but nobody is forced to pray if they don't want to.

***Obamacare tax penalty will hit nearly 6 million uninsured. Yeah, it's a great idea. We have to elect conservatives in November and get rid of this monster - and the health care plan, too.

Dr. Seuss Explains Computers

-- Author Unknown

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
and the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
and your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
then your situation's hopeless and your system's gonna crash!

If the label on the cable on the table at your house,
says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
but your packets want to tunnel on another protocol,
that's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,
and your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,
so your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse,
then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
'cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk,
and the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
Quickly turn off the computer, and be sure to tell your mom.
