Yep, I was on the phone to India while getting ‘support’ for my installation of MS Small Business 2007 and you will never, never, believe how I finally got it ‘installed’.
Don’t forget to vote and don’t forget to stay tuned afterwards to track what is being done…
In your name.
The translation of this song, interestingly it’s about separation, is here.

Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’
Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’
Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’
But conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?
And there comes a point when one must take a position that is
but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that
it is right. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
A sentiment I share with that great American. It’s one all Americans would do well to live by.

Way back when Edwards was still in the running I used to try and talk about this issue. Nobody cared. It was all about ID politics and the wonderfulness of a woman and a black man running for President. Well, we got that out of the way. Now what?
Are we gonna keep on with our ‘national dialogue about race..’ maybe tack on the word ‘gender’ to that? Before you all start clapping and cheering check this out:
‘But only 7% of US households earn more than $150,000; only 18% earn more than $100,000; more than 50% earn under $50,000 (7). Once you have Democrats who consider people on $200,000 as middle class and in need of tax relief, you don’t need Republicans any more. Clinton and Obama are the emblems of a liberalism which has made its peace with a political ethics that will combat racist and sexist inequalities, while almost ignoring inequalities that stem not from discrimination but from exploitation. The candidates’ death match prominently features charges of racism and sexism.’
That’s from an article by Walter Benn Michaels is professor at the University of Illinois, Chicago you can read here……..
Next time we will be talking about GINI, that’s not a person and ‘she’s’ not gonna be Obama’s Veep, what it is and why you aren’t happy with the way things feel.

These guys are playing a role in the global market. They are not happy that their government is not going to subsidize their fuel costs anymore You see in many Asian countries that’s exactly what’s been going on. To forestall ‘unrest’ the governments have been spending massive amounts to keep fuel prices in their countries down. But….now running out of the ability to do this, out of money they are, the price off fuel is rising so…the demand is falling.
These guys are pissed but this might mean, might, that our costs will fall somewhat due to the lack of demand.
Read more about this and a lot more on the ‘oil crisis’ at Robert Oak’s blog where guest blogger New Deal Democrat starts his post off with a bang:
‘I was in the midst of writing a diary about how there aren’t "2 Americas", a la John Edwards, but 3, when it became clear that so much information has become available this week concerning the forces affecting Americans’ demand for oil, that it demanded its own diary. Even if the world has reached the plateau of "Peak Oil" and supplies will gradually be rationed at higher and higher prices, there are going to be booms and busts along the way. I’m here to tell you that the evidence suggests that there has been a speculative boom in the last 6-9 months and we may shortly see a bust, echoing the sudden decline of oil from $80 to $55 a barrel just before the 2006 elections. The boom and the bust, if it happens, have everything to do with (1) Subsidies to gas consumption by Asian governments, (2) hoarding (in tanker ships), and (3) unintended consequences of the Fed’s bailing out billionaires, that have added about $1 to every single gallon of gas you buy.‘
Whoa, I don’t believe I read that part about you an me subsidizing the Bear Stearns bailout to the tune of $1 per gallon in the SF Chronicle. But then I wouldn’t would I. It’s all about how Barry is gonna be Pres. Great, follow that Kabuki there but if you want a head’s up on what’s coming:
This is the place to come.
